    Abstract : The thesis addresses different questions, each necessary in the understanding of dynamic fracture initiation and crack propagation in steel. Emphasis lays on dynamic crack propagation experiments performed in the ductile to brittle transition region and possible conclusions, that can be drawn from them. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the hot crack formation during solidification of iron-base alloys

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Industriell produktion

    Author : Karin Hansson; [2001]
    Keywords : hot cracking; hot tearing; cracking fracturing ; tearing; ductility; brittleness; embrittlement; fractures; ductile brittle transition; solidification; iron; copper; nickel; Invar; steels; free machining steels; stainless steels; penetration; crack;

    Abstract : Hot cracking during solidification is a severe problem inmany casting processes, for example in continuous casting.Combinations of low strength and low ductility of the materialat high temperatures and applied tensile stress can cause hotcracking. READ MORE

  4. 4. Ab initio Investigation of Al-doped CrMnFeCoNi High-Entropy Alloys

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Abstract : High-entropy alloys (HEAs) represent a special group of solid solutions containing five or more principal elements. The new design strategy has attracted extensive attention from the materials science community. The design and development of HEAs with desired properties have become an important subject in materials science and technology. READ MORE

  5. 5. Micromechanical modeling of cleavage fracture in polycrystalline materials

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Mateusz Stec; Jonas Faleskog; Andre Pineau; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cleavage fracture; probabilistic modeling; brittle to ductile transition; cohesive zone; visco-plastic material; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik; TECHNOLOGY Other technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper;

    Abstract : Cleavage fracture in ferritic steels can be defined as a sequence of few critical steps. At first nucleation of a microcrack takes place, often in a hard inclusion. This microcrack then propagates into the surrounding matrix material. The last obstacle before failure is the encounter of grain boundaries. READ MORE
