    Abstract : Today, crash simulations replace crash testing in the product development phase in theautomotive industry. High quality simulations enable shorter product development time andhigher competitiveness. READ MORE

  2. 2. Impact Simulation of Adhesively Joined Structures

    University dissertation from Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Thomas Carlberger; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Adhesive joining; Dynamic fracture; Cohesive zone; Interphase Element; Bi-material joining; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik; Teknik; Technology;

    Abstract : The development of competitive and crashworthy automotive car bodies has reached so far that the manufacturers no longer rely on mono-material steel structures. Improved strength/weight performance may be achieved by using optimal material in each part of the car structure, leading to bi-material joints and ruling out spot welding; the common joining method during the past half century of automotive history.

  3. 3. Meso-Mechanical Modeling and Analysis of Adhesive Layers

    University dissertation from Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Kent Salomonsson; Högskolan i Skövde.; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik; Technology; Teknik; Adhesive layer; Meso-mechanical; Representative Volume Element; Large curvatures; Interphase elements; Evolution algorithm;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the modeling, simulation and analysis of adhesive layers. By use of an in situ scanning electron microscopy study it is found that the adhesive studied in the present thesis has a very complex structure with two different compounds, a mineral and an epoxy/thermoplastic blend.

  4. 4. Transverse failure initiation in polymer composites

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Leif Asp; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [1995]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymeric Composite Materials; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : Transverse failure is one of the most important failure modes in polymer composites. The phenomenon often causes the first deviations from nonlinear laminate behavior. Also, in pressure vessels and pipes, fluid leakage through a path of transverse cracks is often the limiting design criterion. READ MORE
