  1. 1. Inflation Mechanics of Hyperelastic Membranes

    Author : Amit Patil; Anders Eriksson; Arne Nordmark; Reijo Kouhia; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Membrane Mechanics; Inflation; Adhesive Contact; Instabilities; Bifurcation; Limit Point; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering Mechanics;

    Abstract : The applications of inflatable membrane structures are increasing rapidly in the various fields of engineering and science. The geometric, material, force and contact non-linearities complicate this subject further, which in turn increases the demand for computationally efficient methods and interpretations of counter-intuitive behaviors noted by the  scientific community.

  2. 2. Computational Nonsmooth Mechanics

    Author : Peter W. Christensen; J.A.C. Martins; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns the application of modern methods from the field of mathematical programming for solving certain problems of nonsmooth mechanics. Attention is given to contact problems with friction as well as plasticity problems. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Automation of Non-Destructive Testing of Welds

    Author : Patrik Broberg; Mikael Sjödahl; Anna Runnemalm; Torbjörn Löfqvist; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Welding; non-destructive testing; NDT; Industriell arbetsvetenskap; Industrial engineering; Experimentell mekanik; Experimental Mechanics;

    Abstract : All welding processes can give rise to defects that will weaken the joint and can lead to failure of the welded structure. Because of this, non-destructive testing (NDT) of welds have become increasingly important to ensure the structural integrity when the material becomes thinner and stronger and welds become smaller; all to reduce weight in order to save material and reduce emissions due to lighter constructions.

  4. 4. TV holography and shearography in experimental mechanics

    Author : Henrik O. Saldner; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Experimental Mechanics; Experimentell mekanik;

    Abstract : TV holography is an optical non-contacting whole field technique to measure deformation. Names as ESPI or Electronic speckle pattern interferometry, Electro-optic holography and Electronic holography are commonly used for this real-time video based interferometric technique. Shearography has become an important tool in non destructive testing. READ MORE
