  1. 1. Static and fatigue analyses of welded steel structures : some aspects towards lightweight design

    Author : Mansoor Khurshid; Zuheir Barsoum; Lars-Erik Lindgren; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fatigue strength; welded joints; static strength; high strength steel; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering; Farkostteknik; Flyg- och rymdteknik; Aerospace Engineering;

    Abstract : The objectives of this thesis comprise of overcoming the challenges in designing lightweight welded structures such as material selection, choice of fatigue design methods, and increased performance by using improvement techniques. Material selection of welded joints is dependent on the filler and base material strengths. READ MORE

  2. 2. Residual Stress Analysis and Fatigue Assessment of Welded Steel Structures

    Author : Zuheir Barsoum; Jack Samuelsson; Dan Zenkert; Stephen Maddox; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; fatigue failure; welding; weld defects; welded joints; stress concentration; residual stress; linear elastic fracture mechanics; welding simulation; finite element analysis; fatigue crack growth.; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : This doctoral thesis is concerned with fatigue life of welded structures. Several topics related to fatigue of welded structures are treated such as; weld defects and their influence on fatigue performance of welded structures, fatigue life prediction using LEFM (Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics), fatigue testing, welding simulation, residual stress prediction and measurement and their influence on fatigue life.

  3. 3. Fatigue evaluation of welded details – using the finite element method

    Author : Mustafa Aygül; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; the finite element method; welded details; effective notch stress method; Hot-spot stress method; fracture mechanics;

    Abstract : The fatigue evaluation of welded details is generally based on the notion of nominal stress, using the classified S-N curves with corresponding fatigue classes for typical details. An approach of this kind should be used with extra caution to ensure that the load effects for components are accurately captured, because an ever-increasing number of welded details are resulting in a limited number of possible treatable design cases.

  4. 4. Fatigue Analysis of Welded Structures Using the Finite Element Method

    Author : Mustafa Aygül; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Hot spot stress; effective notch stress; the finite element method; orthotropic bridge deck; welded details;

    Abstract : Fatigue design and analysis of steel and composite bridges is generally based on the notion of the nominal stress using the classified S-N curves with corresponding fatigue classes for typical details. Such an approach can yield unrealistic the estimation of the load effects for structure components because of an ever increasing number of structural details and loading situations resulting in a limited number of possible treatable design cases.
