  1. 1. Composite Bridges : Innovative ways of achieving composite action

    Author : Robert Hällmark; Peter Collin; Ian May; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Composite action; bridges; steel; concrete; shear connectors; prefabrication; coiled spring pins; shear studs; post-installation; design guidance; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : The topic of this thesis is steel-concrete composite bridges and innovative ways of achieving composite action. The typical superstructure consists of three main components: the steel girders, the concrete deck slab and the shear connectors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resin transfer moulded composite materials : processing, structure, property relationships

    Author : J. Anders Holmberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : This thesis contains analysis of the performance of polymer composites manufactured by resin transfer moulding (RTM). The thesis consists of six papers, where the first two deals with the tensile strength of composites reinforced with randomly oriented glass fibres, which still is the most common reinforcement in RTM manufacturing.

  3. 3. Hierarchical cellulosic reinforcement for composites: enhanced resistance to moisture and compatibility with polymers

    Author : Abdelghani Hajlane; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymeric Composite Materials; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : Cellulosic fibres (flax, hemp, regenerated cellulose) possess decent mechanical properties and they are gaining interest as an alternative to synthetic reinforcement (e.g. glass fibres) in polymers to reduce the petroleum consumption and pollution. READ MORE

  4. 4. High Performance Bio-based Composites : Mechanical and Environmental Durability

    Author : Newsha Doroudgarian; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : The presented work is a part of the ongoing effort on the development of high performance bio-based composites with enhanced durability, under static and dynamic mechanical loading including the exposure to elevated humidity. The impact of relative humidity on the performance of cellulosic fibers (natural and regenerated), bio-based resins and their composites was studied. READ MORE

  5. 5. Electron microscopy and microanalysis of polymers and polymer blends : artifacts and applications

    Author : Henrik Lindberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : Electron microscopy and microanalysis is used to examine the degradation of unstainable polymers and polymer blends in order to gain an understanding and arrive at methods for characterizing microstructures. Several methods have been used in order to obtain complementary ways of establishing artifacts arising from specimen preparation effects, the internal energy of the components, and degradation under the electron beam together with low or zero contrast between phases in a blend.
