  1. 1. Wheel/rail wear and surface cracks

    Author : Rickard Nilsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : wheel; rail. Profile; surfaces; hardness; wear; cracks;

    Abstract : .... READ MORE

  2. 2. Modelling and simulation of short fatigue cracks

    Author : Christina Bjerkén; Materialteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; materialteknik; Materiallära; Material technology; Interface cracks; Dislocations; Short cracks; Local plasticity;

    Abstract : The growth of short fatigue cracks deviates from the behaviour of long fatigue cracks even if subjected to the same nominal driving force. The influence from the microstructure is pronounced, while crack closure effects may not be that important as for longer cracks. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cracks in superalloys

    Author : Jonas Saarimäki; Johan Moverare; Kjell Simonsson; Magnus Hörnqvist Colliander; Robert Eriksson; Håkan Brodin; Mark Whitaker; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Gas turbines are widely used in industry for power generation and as a power source at hard to reach locations where other possibilities for electrical power supplies are insufficient. New ways of producing greener energy is needed to reduce emission levels. This can be achieved by increasing the combustion temperature of gas turbines. READ MORE

  4. 4. Assessment of Concrete Structures Including Corrosion and Cracks

    Author : Mattias Blomfors; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; assessment; reinforcement bond; corrosion; reinforced concrete; nonlinear FE analysis; cracks;

    Abstract : Reinforced concrete (RC) structures constitute a major proportion of the built environment and society relies continuously on their service. Many of these structures were built in the era following the Second World War and are thus approaching the end of their intended service life. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adhesion to machined and laser ablated wood surfaces

    Author : Micael Stehr; KTH; []
    Keywords : AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; ablation; adhesion; checks; coating; cracks; excimer laser; gluing; IR laser; mechanical machining; mechanical weak boundary layer; microscopy; notched specimens; pine; planing; sample preparation; sawing; scanning electronmicroscopy; spruce; tip-cracks; UV laser; weak boundary layer; wood;

    Abstract : This thesis is a contribution to the R&D-program ValueActivation at KTH,Division of Wood Technology and Processingand containsfive papers related to the evaluation and development ofmachining techniques (mechanical and irradiation treatments)whereby weak boundaries at the wood surfaces in the form of(mechanical) weak boundary layers and (micro) cracks due tomechanical treatment can be avoided.The first paper describes the development of a method–using a UV laser–to study the mechanically weakenedboundaries.
