  1. 1. From CAD to FEA : A design automation perspective

    Author : Roland Stolt; Högskolan i Jönköping; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Idealisation; CAD; Finite element analysis; mid-surfaces; KBES; Feature based modelling; knowledge based systems; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Construction engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : CAD-models of parts produced by injection moulding or die-casting are often complex making the task of automated geometrical idealisation for finite element analysis difficult. Conventional tools for geometric idealisation are not ideal for the task, as will be shown in the thesis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling and Simulation of Reactor Pressure Vessel Failure during Severe Accidents

    Author : Peng Yu; Weimin Ma; Walter Villanueva; Sevostian Bechta; Florian Fichot; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; RPV failure; thermo-fluid-structure coupling; creep modelling; melt pool heat transfer; severe accident; CFD; FEA; transIVR;

    Abstract : This thesis aims at the development of new coupling approaches and new models for the thermo-fluid-structure coupling problem of reactor pressure vessel (RPV) failure during severe accidents and related physical phenomena. The thesis work consists of five parts: (i) development of a three-stage creep model for RPV steel 16MND5, (ii) development of a thermo-fluid-structure coupling approach for RPV failure analysis, (iii) performance comparison of the new approach that uses volume loads mapping (VLM) for data transfer with the previous approach that uses surface loads mapping (SLM), (iv) development of a lumped-parameter code for quick estimate of transient melt pool heat transfer, and (v) development of a hybrid coupling approach for efficient analysis of RPV failure.

  4. 4. Physically based constitutive models for crash of composites

    Author : Sergio Costa; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Crushing; FEA; friction; damage mechanics; CDM; kinking;

    Abstract : The transportation industry and passenger cars in particular are strong emitters of gases that contribute to the climate crisis. For this reason, the automotive industry investigates opportunities to reduce emissions, such as reducing the weight of the car. READ MORE

  5. 5. Physically based fibre kinking model for crash of composites

    Author : Sergio Costa; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : kinking; Crushing; FEA; damage mechanics; friction;

    Abstract : Passenger cars are a major emitter of global warming gases which has led to tighter regulations being imposed on car manufacturers. An efficient way to reduce emissions is to reduce the weight of the cars. READ MORE
