  1. 1. Damage Tolerance of Impacted Composite Sandwich Structures

    Author : Moeen ud din Saeed Rajput; Malin Åkermo; Stefan Hallström; Magnus Burman; Christian Berggreen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; composite sandwich; cellular; polymer; material characterization; modulus; non-crimp fabric; low velocity impact; vibration; uncertainty analysis; drop-weight impact; fractography; barely visible impact damage; X-ray microtomography; compression-after-impact; bending-after-impact; high speed image processing; damage resistance; damage tolerance; Flyg- och rymdteknik; Aerospace Engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with damage tolerance of impacted sandwich structures for load bearing applications. Composite sandwich structures find wide application as lightweight solutions in aerospace components, since weight reduction and less fuel emissions are primary concerns for aircraft manufactures.

  2. 2. Ductile damage modeling of the machining process

    Author : SENAD RAZANICA; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mesh dependence; Johnson-Cook; Ductile fracture; Thermodynamics; Machining simulation; Damage driving energy; Damage evolution; Damage threshold criterion;

    Abstract : Machining processes are among the most common manufacturing processes for producing components used on a daily basis. It is a complex material removal process. Today, the research and development within the manufacturing industry is addressed by cost efficient numerical simulation strategies rather than by costly experimental procedures. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards frost damage prediction in asphaltic pavements

    Author : Lisa Lövqvist; Nicole Kringos; Romain Balieu; Robert Karlsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; frost damage; winter damage; asphalt; pavements; micromechanical model; microstructure; freeze-thaw cycles; finite element model; Byggvetenskap; Civil and Architectural Engineering;

    Abstract : Roads are subjected to mechanical loads from the traffic as well as deteriorating mechanisms originating from the surrounding environment and climate. The damage arising is particularly severe during the winter season, when for example raveling, pot holes and cracks can emerge on the surfaces of asphaltic roads. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modeling DNA Damage

    Author : Patric Schyman; Aatto Laaksonen; Sason Shaik; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; DNA; Ionizing radiation; DNA radicals; Strand break; Hydrogen abstraction; Density Functional Theory; Car-Parrinello Molecular Dynamics; QM MM; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; Physical Chemistry; fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis methods of computational chemistry have been used to examine DNA damaging processes initiated by ionizing radiation, free radicals, or Low-Energy Electrons (LEE). The computational chemistry method based on quantum mechanics that has been mainly used here is the Density Functional Theory (DFT). READ MORE

  5. 5. Plasticity and Damage Mechanics for Modeling Concrete Failure

    Author : Peter Grassl; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : nonlocal; concrete; localization; plasticity; damage;

    Abstract : Concrete structures exhibit strongly non-linear and complex mechanical behavior. Hence, they are nowadays often analyzed by means of the finite element method, whereby a realistic description of the material behavior is decisive for the validity of the results. READ MORE
