  1. 1. Constitutive Behaviour and Fracture of Adhesive Layers : Inverse Methods and Energetic Balance

    Author : Svante Alfredsson; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : adhesive layer; constitutive behaviour; fracture; energy release rate; shear fracture; mode-mixity; experimental method; inverse solution; multi-material joints; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : In the automobile industry, current demands on reduced emissions with maintained or even increased crash worthiness, forces the industry to seek weight-reducing designs. The possibility to use lightweight materials is obviously attractive. At joints, these lightweight materials have to be connected to high-strength or low-cost materials. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanical Behaviour of Adhesive Layers : Methods to Extract Peel and Mixed Mode Properties

    Author : Tobias Andersson; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : Mechanical Behaviour of Adhesive Layers Methods to Extract Peel and Mixed Mode Properties TOBIAS ANDERSSON Department of Applied Mechanics Chalmers University of Technology ABSTRACT This thesis is concerned with methods to extract material properties of thin adhesive layers loaded in peel and in mixed mode. The first part of the thesis is devoted to an experimental method to determine the complete stress-elongation relation (or cohesive law) for an adhesive layer loaded in peel using the DCB-specimen.

  3. 3. Mechanical Behaviour of Adhesive Joints in Cartonboard for Packaging

    Author : Christer Korin; Magnus Lestelius; Nils Hallbäck; Christophe Barbier; Christer Fellers; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Hot melt Adhesives; Carton board; Y-peel; Peel strength; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : A cartonboard package is often sealed and closed with an adhesive – either a hot-melt adhesive (adhesives that are applied in a molten state on the cartonboard) or a dispersion adhesive (adhesives that are applied as water-based dispersions). This thesis focuses on the process of hot-melt gluing, and how material properties and process conditions affect the performance of the adhesive joint. READ MORE

  4. 4. Barnacle Bioadhesive Bonding Formation, Strength and Control

    Author : Mattias Berglin; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : barnacle adhesive plaque; poly dimethylsiloxane ; fouling release coatings; bioadhesion; marine biofouling;

    Abstract : The current technology for keeping ship hulls free of marine biofouling requires the use of toxic compounds such as copper, organic biocides and tributyl tin (TBT). The compounds that are released have been shown to have negative effects on non-target organisms, and a worldwide ban of TBT is currently being introduced. READ MORE

  5. 5. STRUCTURAL RETROFITTING OF CONCRETE BEAMS USING FRP - Debonding Issues

    Author : Yasmeen Obaidat; Byggnadsmekanik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : A 3D nonlinear finite element analysis modelling framework was developed for simulating the behaviour of beams retrofitted with fibre reinforced polymer (FRP). The ABAQUS program was used for this purpose. Concrete was modelled using a plastic damage model. READ MORE
