  1. 1. Quasi-instantaneous and Long-term Deformations of High-Performance Concrete with Some Related Properties

    Author : Bertil Persson; Avdelningen för Byggnadsmaterial; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Shrinkage; Relative humidity; Long-term; Hydration; High-Performance Concrete; Elastic modulus; Deformations; Creep; Concrete; Cement; Quasi-instantaneous; Strength; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : This report outlines an experimental and numerical study on quasi-instantaneous and long-term deformations of High-Performance Concrete, HPC, with some related properties. For this purpose about two hundred small cylinders and about one thousand cubes of eight types of HPC were cast. The age at loading varied between 18h and 28 days. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cracking in Reinforced Concrete Structures Due to Imposed Deformations

    Author : Agnes Nagy; Avdelningen för Konstruktionsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; minimum reinforcement; cracking; softening; shrinkage; cooling; imposed deformations; conversion formula; static E-modulus; damping coefficient; resonance frequency; dynamic E-modulus; constitutive model; thermal stress; hydration process; reinforced concrete structure; early age; crack control; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with modeling of the cracking process in reinforced concrete due to imposed deformations. Cracking is investigated both at early ages, during hydration, and at mature age when the final properties of the concrete are reached. READ MORE

  3. 3. Multiscale modeling of dynamic recrystallization

    Author : Ylva Mellbin; Hållfasthetslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Dynamic recrystallization; Crystal plasticity; Texture; Grain size strengthening; Vertex model; Nucleation; Particle pinning; Large deformations; Multiscale modeling; GPGPU;

    Abstract : During thermomechanical processing of metals, changes occur in the microstructure of the material which affect its macroscopic properties. By understanding these transformations in the microstructure, it becomes possible to design the processes in a way which yields the desired properties in the finished product. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the modeling of large ratcheting strains and anisotropy in pearlitic steel

    Author : Göran Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Large strains; Plasticity; Anisotropy; Ratcheting; Kinematic hardening;

    Abstract : Thermodynamically consistent constitutive material models for describing the large strain response of polycrystalline metals are proposed. Emphasis is put on the multiaxial ratcheting under cyclic loading and the evolution of anisotropy in pearlitic steel. READ MORE
