  1. 1. On the Fracture of Thin Laminates

    Author : Sharon Kao-Walter; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Laminate; interface; crack; adhesion; crack tip driving force;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns mechanical and fracture properties of a thin aluminium foil and polymer laminate that is widely used as packaging material. The possibility of controlling the path of the growing crack propagation by adjustment of the adhesion level and the property of the polymer layer is investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mechanics and Failure in Thin Material Layers : Towards Realistic Package Opening Simulations

    Author : Eskil Andreasson; Sharon Kao-Walter; Gabriella Bolzon; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; aluminium foil; FEM; LDPE; localisation; necking; polymer; progressive damage; semi-crystalline; simulation; virtual twin;

    Abstract : The final goal of this PhD-work is an efficient and user-friendly finite element modelling strategy targeting an industrial available package opening application.  In order to reach this goal, different experimental mechanical and fracture mechanical tests were continuously refined to characterize the studied materials.

  3. 3. Fracture and Delamination in Packaging Materials : A Study of Experimental Methods and Simulation Techniques

    Author : Md Shafiqul Islam; Sharon Kao-Walter; Christian Johansson Askling; Martin Kroon; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; packaging materials and laminates; shear test specimen; essential work of fracture; finite element simulation; optimization; tearing; peel; polymers; cohesive zone modelling;

    Abstract : Packages are the means of preservation, distribution and convenience of use for food, medicine and other consumer products. The introduction of a new package-opening technique for a better opening experience requires additional prototype development and physical testing. READ MORE

  4. 4. Shear Fracture and Delamination in Packaging Materials : A study of Experimental Methods and Simulation Techniques

    Author : Md. Shafiqul Islam; Sharon Kao-Walter; Christian Johansson; Johan Tryding; Blekinge Institute of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Package opening; Shear test specimen; Stress intensity factor; Finite Element simulation; Scanning electron microscopy; Polymers; Interlaminar shear delamination;

    Abstract : Packages are the means of preservation, distribution and convenience of use for food, medicine and other consumer products. Package opening is becoming complicated in many cases because of cutting cost in design and production of opening techniques. READ MORE

  5. 5. Elastic Press and Die Deformations in Sheet Metal Forming Simulations

    Author : Johan Pilthammar; Sharon Kao-Walter; Mats Sigvant; Roald Lingbeek; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Sheet Metal Forming; Stamping Die; Stamping Press; Structural Analysis; Finite Element Simulation; Optimization; Digital Image Correlation; Inverse Modeling;

    Abstract : Never before has the car industry been as challenging, interesting, and demanding as it is today. New and advanced techniques are being continuously introduced, which has led to increasing competition in an almost ever-expanding car market. READ MORE
