  1. 1. Non-Linear Vibration and Dynamic Fracture Mechanics of Bridge Cables

    University dissertation from Karlskrona : Blekinge Institute of Technology

    Author : Armando Leon; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cable Vibrations; Non-Linear Vibration; Dynamic Fracture Mechanics; Cable-Stayed Bridges; Dynamic Stress Intensity Factor;

    Abstract : In the present work, the non-linear vibrations and the corresponding dynamic fracture mechanics of cables of cable-stayed bridges are studied. The cables are among the most critical components in cable-stayed bridges and there are different damage sources such as corrosion, vibration, fatigue and fretting fatigue that can significantly affect them, thereby reducing the cable’s service life and even producing their failure.

  2. 2. Two Problems in non-linear PDE’s with Phase Transitions

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Karl Jonsson; KTH.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Conductivity jump; Free boundary problem; Quasilinear elliptic equation; Mathematical techniques; Nonlinear analysis; Free boundary; Free-boundary problems; Quasi-linear elliptic; Quasilinear elliptic equations; Hele-Shaw flow; non-local; implicit function theorem; Heterogeneous Multi Scale; HMM; Finite Element; FEM; FE; Matematik; Mathematics;

    Abstract : This thesis is in the field of non-linear partial differential equations (PDE), focusing on problems which show some type of phase-transition. A single phase Hele-Shaw flow models a Newtoninan fluid which is being injected in the space between two narrowly separated parallel planes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling Alternative Load Paths in Platform-Framed CLT Buildings A Finite Element Approach

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå University of Technology

    Author : Johannes Albert Josef Huber; Luleå tekniska universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; timber; robustness; finite element method; alternative load paths; disproportionate collapse; Träteknik; Wood Science and Engineering;

    Abstract : Timber has become more popular as a construction material during recent years. Engineered wood products, such as glued laminated timber and cross-laminated timber, have enabled the construction of multi-storey buildings. Tall buildings with many occupants need to resist a disproportional collapse in case of unexpected exposures, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Predicting shear type crack initiation and growth in concrete with non-linear finite element method

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Richard Malm; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; non-linear finte element analysis; concrete; crack width; crack propagation; shear; TECHNOLOGY Civil engineering and architecture Building engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract :  In this thesis, the possibility to numerically describing the behaviour that signifies shear type cracking in concrete is studied. Different means for describing cracking are evaluated where both methods proposed in design codes based on experiments and advanced finite element analyses with a non-linear material description are evaluated.

  5. 5. Shear and Torsion in Concrete Structures Non-linear Finte Element Analysis in Design and Assessment

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Helén Broo; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; torsion; box-girder bridge; hollow core unit; hollow core floor; non-linear finite element analysis.; shear; prestressed concrete; Reinforced concrete;

    Abstract : For structural design and assessment of reinforced concrete members, non-linear finite element analysis has become an important tool. However, design and assessment of shear and torsion are still done with simplified analytical or empirical design methods. READ MORE
