  1. 1. On Cohesive Modelling ofCarbon/Epoxy Composites : Delamination and Fibre Compressive Failure

    Author : Daniel Svensson; Ulf Stigh; Bent Sørensen; Högskolan i Skövde; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; CFRP; Cohesive zone model; J-integral; LEFM; Delamination; Compressive failure; Technology; Teknik; Mechanics of Materials; Materialmekanik;

    Abstract : Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymers are widely used in engineering applications where weight saving and high mechanical performance are a key factors. However, an inheren tweakness of laminated CFRP:s is there relatively low resistance to delamination. Therst part of this thesis is devoted to extract cohesive laws associated with delamination.

  2. 2. Adhesive Joining for Crashworthiness -Material Data and Explicit FE-methods

    Author : Thomas Carlberger; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Dynamic fracture; Bi-material joining; Hybrid joints; Cohesive zone; Adhesive joining; Interphase Element; Bimaterial joining; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Teknik; Technology;

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

  3. 3. Modelling of large deformation crack propagation based on the extended finite element method

    Author : Martin Fagerström; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; crack propagation; strong discontinuities; material crack driving force; FEM; cohesive zone;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the finite element modelling of large deformation crack propagation, based on the extended finite element methodology. The benefit from this approach is the possibility of locally enriching the finite element space, i.e. to add a priori knowledge about the local behaviour of the solution in order to improve accuracy.

  4. 4. Failure of thinwalled structures under impact loading

    Author : Salar Mostofizadeh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thinwalled shell structures; cohesive zone; phantom node method; ductile failure; XFEM;

    Abstract : Thinwalled structures are widely used for different applications, e.g. maritime structures,vehicles, off-shore structures, aircraft fuselage, ship panels etc., and due to their applicationthey might be exposed to high strain rate loads as blast loads. READ MORE

  5. 5. Impact Simulation of Adhesively Joined Structures

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