  1. 1. Predicting shear type crack initiation and growth in concrete with non-linear finite element method

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Richard Malm; Håkan Sundquist; Anders Ansell; Kent Gylltoft; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; non-linear finte element analysis; concrete; crack width; crack propagation; shear; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract :  In this thesis, the possibility to numerically describing the behaviour that signifies shear type cracking in concrete is studied. Different means for describing cracking are evaluated where both methods proposed in design codes based on experiments and advanced finite element analyses with a non-linear material description are evaluated.

  2. 2. Fibres in reinforced concrete structures - analysis, experiments and design

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Anette M Jansson; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; crack width; stress crack-width relationship; design methods; post cracking; analysis method; Fibre-reinforced concrete;

    Abstract : Potential benefits from fibres in concrete are improved crack control and the possibility of more slender structures. The extent of the crack control depends, among other factors, on the amount of fibres added, and plays a great role for durability. READ MORE

  3. 3. A NEW APPROACH TO CRACK CONTROL FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE - An investigation of crack widhts close to the reinforcement and the correlation to service life

    University dissertation from The Division of Structural Engineering

    Author : Kristian Tammo; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; concrete cover; corrosion; Crack width; steel stress and service life;

    Abstract : One of the most important factors governing durability of concrete structures is reinforcement corrosion, and to prevent degradation associated with it, it is desirable to use large concrete covers. However, if the concrete cover is increased, the majority of design methods will predict that the crack widths at the concrete surface increase significantly. READ MORE

  4. 4. On initiation of chemically assisted crack growth and crack propagation paths of branching cracks in polycarbonate

    University dissertation from Ulf Hejman/Media-Tryck AB

    Author : Ulf Hejman; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; stress corrosion; crack initiation; multiple cracking; polycarbonate; three point bending; stress corrosion cracking; polycarbonate; dissolution; branching; experiment; finite element modelling;

    Abstract : Stress corrosion, SC, in some cases gives rise to stress corrosion cracking, SCC, which differs from purely stress intensity driven cracks in many aspects. They initiate and grow under the influence of an aggressive environment in a stressed substrate. They grow at low load and may branch. READ MORE
