  1. 1. Life Prediction and Mechanical Behavior of Thermal Barrier Coatings

    University dissertation from Div. Materials Engineering, Lund University, P O Box 118, SE-221 00 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Yan Liu; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stress intensity factors; Macro-cracks; Micro-cracks; Mechanical behaviour; Thermal barrier coatings; Life prediction; Material technology; Materiallära; materialteknik;

    Abstract : Delamination and spallation of thermal barrier coating (TBC) systems, used in hot parts of gas turbines, have been studied with respect to thermal fatigue. TBCs with and without pre-existing cracks were investigated. Thermal shock tests were performed until coating spallation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Multiscale modeling of ductile fracture in solids

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Erik Svenning; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Ductile fracture occurs in many situations of engineering relevance, for example metal cutting and crashworthiness applications, where the fracture process is important to understand and predict. Increased understanding can be gained by using multiscale modeling, where the effective response of the material is computed from microscale simulations on Statistical Volume Elements (SVEs) 1 containing explicit models for the nucleation and propagation of microscopic cracks.

  3. 3. Structural Composite Lithium-Ion Battery Effect of Intercalation induced volumetric changes on micro-damage

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Johanna Xu; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymeric Composite Materials; Polymera kompositmaterial;

    Abstract : The quest for lighter materials and structures to reduce climate impacts in the automotive industry has paved the way for multifunctional solutions. Mass saving on a system level can be achieved by materials or structures having more than one primary function, thus reducing the number of components used. READ MORE

  4. 4. Laboratory studies of dynamic rock fracture and in-situ measurements of cutter forces for a boring machine

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Zongxian Zhang; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Gruv- och Berganläggningsteknik; Mining and Rock Engineering;

    Abstract : All forms of rock failure usually happen within a very wide range of loading rates covering static and dynamic loading. Since rock failure always results from fracture - the propagation of one or more cracks- the first part of the thesis is focused on laboratory studies of the influences of loading rates on rock fracture.

  5. 5. Mechanics of composites with fiber bundle meso-structure

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Normunds Jekabsons; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymeric Composite Materials; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial;

    Abstract : The presented thesis analyze mechanical phenomena in fibrous composites with fiber bundle sub-structure (woven composite sheet molding compounds (SMC) etc.). This sub-structure defines an intermediate meso-scale between the scale of individual fibers and macro-scale of the composite. READ MORE
