  1. 1. Crack-junctions : Bridging the gap between nano electronics and giga manufacturing

    Author : Valentin Dubois; Göran Stemme; Christofer Hierold; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; nanotechnology; nanoelectronics; nanogap electrodes; molecular electronics; nanoplasmonics; crack-junctions; break junctions; nanowires; parallel fabrication; lithography; fracture; crack; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : Obtaining both nanometer precision of patterning and parallel fabrication on wafer-scale is currently not possible in conventional fabrication schemes. Just as we are looking beyond semiconductor technologies for next-generation electronics and photonics, our efforts turn to new ways of producing electronic and photonic interfaces with the nanoscale.

  2. 2. Control of Cracking due to Imposed Strains in Concrete Structures

    Author : Dan Pettersson; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydraulic engineering; Civil engineering; Friction.; Restraint; Shrinkage; Imposed deformations; Minimum reinforcement; Crack widths; Reinforced concrete; Crack development; Crack control; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with crack control due to imposed deformations in concrete structures. The objective of crack control may either be to prevent cracking or to limit the crack widths. The aim here is to increase the knowledge in both fields for some common structures. Five papers are included and the three last concern crack development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fatigue of Spot Welded Joints: Experiments and Life Predictions

    Author : Hans-Fredrik Henrysson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : crack closure; crack propagation; crack initiation; finite element method; damage accumulation; variable amplitude; fracture mechanics; fatigue; spot welds;

    Abstract : Methods to assess the fatigue strength of spot welds in built-up structures are used on a daily basis in the automotive industry. Efficient and reliable numerical methods make it possible to achieve designs with low weight, low manufacturing costs and good durability within short development cycles, since the number of prototypes built can be reduced.

  5. 5. Failure of thermal barrier coatings under thermal and mechanical fatigue loading : microstructural observations and modelling aspects

    Author : Håkan Brodin; Anette M. Karlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : thermal barrier coating; TBC; delamination; crack initiation; crack propagation; crack growth; oxidation; alumina; spinel; MCrAIY; diffusion; fatigue; modelling; modeling; degradation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Industrial and air-borne gas turbine hot components suffer from creep, oxidation, corrosion and microstructural degradation if not shielded from the hot and aggressive combustion gases. Two major strategies commercially available are adopted; film cooling by pressurised air and application of protective coatings. READ MORE
