  1. 1. Behaviour of fracture process zones in concrete influenced by simultaneously applied normal and shear displacements

    Author : Manouchehr Hassanzadeh; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; softening; mixed mode; fictitious crack model; concrete; deformationer; betong; brottmekanik; hållfasthet; brotthållfasthet; spänningar; skjuvspänningar; sprickor; beräkningsmodeller; brottenergi; teori; laboratorieförsök; interlock; crack path; diagonal crack; microcracking; instability; fracture energy; fracture mechanics; shear; tension; process zone;

    Abstract : The thesis deals with the determination of the post peak behaviour of concrete in pure tension, and combined tension (compression) and shear. A test arrangement has been developed in order to determine the post peak behaviour of concrete expressed as stress - displacement curves. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling of TMF Crack Growth in Polycrystalline Gas Turbine Alloys : Accounting for Crack Closure Effects

    Author : Jordi Loureiro-Homs; Kjell Simonsson; Robert Eriksson; Daniel Leidermark; Tomas Månsson; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : The main objective of the work presented in this Licentiate of Engineering thesis is to investigate and model the fatigue crack propagation behaviour of the nickel-based superalloy Inconel 792, with special attention to the industrial lifing of high-temperature components. In-phase (IP) crack propagation tests have been performed at different temperatures and loading regimes, including extended hold times. READ MORE

  3. 3. Control of Cracking due to Imposed Strains in Concrete Structures

    Author : Dan Pettersson; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydraulic engineering; Civil engineering; Friction.; Restraint; Shrinkage; Imposed deformations; Minimum reinforcement; Crack widths; Reinforced concrete; Crack development; Crack control; offshore technology; soil mechanics; Väg- och vattenbyggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with crack control due to imposed deformations in concrete structures. The objective of crack control may either be to prevent cracking or to limit the crack widths. The aim here is to increase the knowledge in both fields for some common structures. Five papers are included and the three last concern crack development. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling crack-induced ultrasonic scattering in a thick-walled pipe

    Author : Jacob Rubenson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Cylindrical pipes; Non-Destructive Testing; Crack; Ultrasonic waves; Hypersingular integral method;

    Abstract : Ultrasonic testing is used in several industries where there are high demands on safety, e.g. nuclear power and aerospace industries. In the nuclear industry and elsewhere there are many pipes that need to be tested. READ MORE

  5. 5. Failure of thermal barrier coatings under thermal and mechanical fatigue loading : microstructural observations and modelling aspects

    Author : Håkan Brodin; Anette M. Karlsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : thermal barrier coating; TBC; delamination; crack initiation; crack propagation; crack growth; oxidation; alumina; spinel; MCrAIY; diffusion; fatigue; modelling; modeling; degradation; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Industrial and air-borne gas turbine hot components suffer from creep, oxidation, corrosion and microstructural degradation if not shielded from the hot and aggressive combustion gases. Two major strategies commercially available are adopted; film cooling by pressurised air and application of protective coatings. READ MORE
