  1. 1. Modelling of fracture toughness using peridynamics : A Study of J-integral, essential work and homogenisation

    Author : Christer Stenström; Pär Jonsén; Kjell Eriksson; Ugo Galvanetto; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Peridynamics; J-integral; Essential work of fracture; Nonlocal methods; Meshless; Meshfree; Fracture; Crack tip; Exact analytical; Center cracked tension; Double edge notched tensile; fracture toughness; Peridynamik; Brottmekanik; Sprickspets; Brottseghet; Spänningsintensitet; Hållfasthetslära; Solid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Fracture toughness is one of the most important properties of a material. Being able toaccurately estimate the energy that goes into forming new crack surfaces is essential for the development of new materials, quality assurance, structural monitoring and failure analysis. READ MORE

  2. 2. Toughness of Tool Steel

    Author : Henrik Jesperson; Håkan Engqvist; Birger Karlsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Toughness; Tool Steel; Heat Treatment; Temperature; Energy absorption; Impact Testing; Fracture Toughness Testing; Non-metallic Inclusions; Carbides; Nitrides; Statistics; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Toughness is the ability to resist tensile stresses in the presence of a notch or crack. Sometimes gross cracking of industrial tools, mould or dies, occurs due to insufficient toughness. As the economic consequences of the gross cracking are serious, the toughness of industrial tool material, generally tool steel, is of paramount importance. READ MORE

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  4. 4. The fracture mechanisms in duplex stainless steels at sub-zero temperatures

    Author : Johan Pilhagen; Pavel Korzhavy; Rolf Sandström; Kim Wallin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Duplex stainless steel; Weldments; Delamination; Fracture toughness; Impact toughness; Cleavage fracture; Nickel;

    Abstract : The aim of the thesis was to study the susceptibility for brittle failures and the fracture process of duplex stainless steels at sub-zero temperatures (°C). In the first part of the thesis plates of hot-rolled duplex stainless steel with various thicknesses were used to study the influence of delamination (also known as splits) on the fracture toughness.

  5. 5. Fracture toughness properties of duplex stainless steels

    Author : Henrik Sieurin; Rolf Sandström; Jan-Olof Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; duplex stainless steel; fracture toughness; austenite reformation; sigma phase; material optimisation; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Good toughness properties in base and weld material enable the use of duplex stainless steels (DSS) in critical applications. DSS offer high strength compared to common austenitic stainless steels. READ MORE
