  1. 1. Mechanical Properties of Resistance Spot Welds in Lightweight Applications

    Author : Davood Afshari; Zuheir Barsoum; Arne Melander; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Spot Weld; Aluminum alloy; Mechanical Properties; Finite Element; SRA - Production; SRA - Produktion;

    Abstract : This licentiate thesis is concerned with residual stresses in aluminum alloy 6061-T6 resistance spot welded joint. Several topics related to mechanical strength of welded structures are treated such as; nugget size and microhardness and microstructures of weld zone and their influence on mechanical strength of welded structure, failure load measurement using tensile-shear test, resistance spot welding simulation, residual stress measurement by X-ray diffraction method and analysis effect of welding parameters on the mechanical strength and the residual stresses.

  2. 2. Fatigue of Spot Welded Joints: Experiments and Life Predictions

    Author : Hans-Fredrik Henrysson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : crack closure; crack propagation; crack initiation; finite element method; damage accumulation; variable amplitude; fracture mechanics; fatigue; spot welds;

    Abstract : Methods to assess the fatigue strength of spot welds in built-up structures are used on a daily basis in the automotive industry. Efficient and reliable numerical methods make it possible to achieve designs with low weight, low manufacturing costs and good durability within short development cycles, since the number of prototypes built can be reduced.

    Author : Jan Linder; KTH; []
    Keywords : Stainless steel; corrosion fatigue; crack propagation; spot weld;

    Abstract : The aim of this work was to investigate the effect ofchloride-containing environments on corrosion fatigueproperties for different stainless steels grades. The steelsinvestigated ranged from the standard 304 grade to thesuperaustenitic 654SMO and the superduplex SAF2507. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fatigue strength of engineering materials : the influence of environment and porosity

    Author : Jan Linder; Bengt Lindberg; Lennart Josefsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Stainless steel; cast aluminium; hardened steels; fatigue; corrosion; crack propagation; spot weld; porosity; Other materials science; Övrig teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : The objective of this work was to use LEFM in order to assess the detrimental influence of surrounding chloride-containing environments for stainless steels, hardened steel as well as for a cast aluminium alloy. An additional aim was also to use LEFM to assess the influence of porosity on the fatigue properties for different commercial cast aluminium alloys and manufacturing methods. READ MORE

  5. 5. Process planning of resistance spot welding

    Author : Oscar Andersson; Arne Melander; Lars-Erik Svensson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Manufacturing engineering in general has experienced an increased demand of process planning in order to optimize processes to reduce costs, environmental impact and increase time efficiency. Resistance spot welding (RSW) is a common and large-scale joining method in several manufacturing industries indicating significant potentials of efficient process planning. READ MORE
