  1. 1. High strength steel : local buckling and residual stresses

    Author : Mattias Clarin; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : High strength steel provide designers with the possibility of creating more slender and weight efficient structures than would be possible if using steels with lower strength. To be able to do this, a structural designer needs updated and validated codes as aid in their work. READ MORE

  2. 2. Residual stresses in dental composites

    Author : Philippe Lingois; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : In several European countries, dental composites are replacing mercury-containing amalgams as the most common restorative materials. The problems with dental composites are they can induce pain for the patient, fracture of the tooth, gap between the tooth and the filling what will induce secondary caries. The main reason is residual stresses. READ MORE

  3. 3. Railway Wheel Flats. Martensite Formation, Residual Stresses, and Crack Propagation

    Author : Johan Jergeus; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : sliding contact; metallographic investigation; crack propagation; thermal shock; constitutive modelling; phase transformations; railway wheel flats; full-scale field experiments; transformation plasticity; tread damage; residual stresses; spalling; martensite formation;

    Abstract : A railway wheel flat is a flat spot on the rolling surface of a wheel caused by its unintentional sliding on the rail. The reason for the sliding may be poorly adjusted, frozen or defect brakes, or too high braking forces in relation to the available wheel/rail adhesion. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the Residual Stresses and Microstructure Formation of Aluminum-Silicon Cast Alloys

    Author : Mohsen Sadrossadat; Sten Johansson; Ru Lin Peng; Ingvar L Svensson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Al-Si alloys; residual stresses; microstructure; microsegregation; nucleation behavior; modeling; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Cast aluminum-silicon alloys are being increasingly used in automotive and aerospace industries for critical structure applications because of their excellent castability, low density, acceptable mechanical properties and low cost. Different casting and heat treatment parameters largely affect the microstructure and residual stress of the components, which in turn, has a great impact on their mechanical properties. READ MORE

  5. 5. Residual Stress Analysis and Fatigue of Welded Structures

    Author : Zuheir Barsoum; Jack Samuelsson; Jan Langkjear Hansen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; welding; fatigue; finite element analysis; fracture mechanics; residual stresses; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is generally concerned with the fatigue of welded structures. Several topics related to fatigue of welded structures are treated such as; weld defects and their influence on fatigue performance of welded structures, fatigue life prediction using LEFM (Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics), fatigue testing, welding simulation, residual stress prediction and measurement and their influence on fatigue.
