  1. 1. Study of precipitation in martensitic Fe-C-Cr alloys during tempering : Experiments and modelling

    Author : Ziyong Hou; Joakim Odqvist; Andersson Jörgen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fe-C-Cr alloy; Microstructure; Precipitates; Tempering of martensite; Electron microscopy; Modelling.; Materials Science and Engineering; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Understanding the precipitation reaction is very important since precipitation hardening is one of the most effective strengthening mechanisms in metallic alloys. In martensitic steels, a tempering heat treatment is often performed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bridge Monitoring to Allow for Reliable Dynamic FE Modelling : A Case Study of the New Årsta Railway Bridge

    Author : Johan Wiberg; Håkan Sundquist; Raid Karoumi; Björn Paulsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; bridge monitoring; FE modelling; signal analysis; torsion; warping; modulus of elasticity; natural frequency; damping; finite differences; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : Today’s bridge design work in many cases demands a trustworthy dynamic analysis instead of using the traditional dynamic amplification factors. In this thesis a reliable 3D Bernoulli-Euler beam finite element model of the New Årsta Railway Bridge was prepared for thorough dynamic analysis using in situ bridge monitoring for correlation.

  3. 3. Long-term metal retention processes in a peat bog : Field studies, data and modelling

    Author : Kristina Syrovetnik; Ivars Neretnieks; Bert Allard; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Peat; heavy metals distribution; sequential extraction; binding mechanisms; modelling; metal sulphide oxidation; aqueous composition; sorption; humic substances; ferric oxyhydroxide; Chemical engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : The study was inspired by the need to assess long-term metal retention in municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills. The long-term processes in landfills are poorly known due to the relatively short time that such landfills have been in existence. Natural analogues where similar metal binding processes could be expected were therefore sought for. READ MORE

  4. 4. Performance of Stress-Laminated-Timber Bridge Decks

    Author : Kristoffer K J Ekholm; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; butt joints; non-linear modelling; stress-laminated timber; linear modelling; prestressing; timber bridges; interlaminar slip; FE modelling; laboratory tests; durability;

    Abstract : Stress-laminated-timber (SLT) bridge decks are a satisfactory alternative to conventional short-span bridges in terms of cost and performance. SLT decks are made from a number of timber or glulam beams positioned side by side and stressed together using high-strength steel bars. READ MORE

  5. 5. Warhead penetration in concrete protective structures

    Author : Håkan Hansson; Anders Ansell; Mattias Unosson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Warhead penetration; FE analysis; experiment; material modelling; fortifications; Stridsdelspenetration; FE-analyser; experiment; materialmodellering; fortifikationer;

    Abstract : The analysis of penetration of warheads in concrete protective structures is an important part of the study of weapon effects on protective structures. This type of analysis requires that the design load in the form of a warhead is determined, and its characteristic and performance within a protective structure is known. READ MORE
