  1. 1. Initiation and early crack growth in VHCF of stainless steels Experimental and theoretical analysis

    Author : Muhammad Waqas Tofique; Jens Bergstöm; Nils Hallbäck; Thierry Pallin-Luc; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Very High Cycle Fatigue; Stainless steel; Ultrasonic fatigue testing; Crack initiation; Crystallographic crack growth; Distributed Dislocation Dipole Technique; Closed cracks; Materialteknik; Materials Engineering;

    Abstract : Mechanical fatigue is a failure phenomenon that occurs due to repeated application of mechanical loads. Very High Cycle Fatigue (VHCF) is considered as the domain of fatigue life greater than 10 million load cycles. READ MORE

  2. 2. A NEW APPROACH TO CRACK CONTROL FOR REINFORCED CONCRETE - An investigation of crack widhts close to the reinforcement and the correlation to service life

    University dissertation from The Division of Structural Engineering

    Author : Kristian Tammo; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; concrete cover; corrosion; Crack width; steel stress and service life;

    Abstract : One of the most important factors governing durability of concrete structures is reinforcement corrosion, and to prevent degradation associated with it, it is desirable to use large concrete covers. However, if the concrete cover is increased, the majority of design methods will predict that the crack widths at the concrete surface increase significantly. READ MORE

  3. 3. Influence of combined thermal and mechanical loadings on pearlitic steel microstructure in railway wheels and rails

    University dissertation from The Division of Structural Engineering

    Author : Dimitrios Nikas; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wheel steels; EBSD; Spheroidisation; Low cycle fatigue LCF ; Rail steels; TEM; Multiaxial fatigue; Hardness; Pearlite; Thermal effects;

    Abstract : One of the most important aspects in railway operation is the interaction between rail and wheel. The contact patch between these two components is around the size of a small coin, and since high loads act on this small area, stresses will give rise to wear and damage in both components.

  4. 4. Non-linear behaviour of polymer composites, moisture effects and accelerated testing

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Peter Mannberg; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymera konstruktionsmaterial; Polymeric Composite Materials;

    Abstract : The society of today is moving fast and the demands on almost everything are getting higher and higher. This can also be seen in the field of material science, where lightweight, high performance materials are gaining increased interest in order to be able to develop for example high performing vehicles with low fuel consumption or wind turbines with higher efficiency.

  5. 5. Very high cycle fatigue of duplex stainless steels and stress intensity calculations

    University dissertation from Luleå : Luleå tekniska universitet

    Author : Muhammad Waqas Tofique; Jens Bergström; Nils Hallbäck; Anders Gåård; Johan Moverare; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Very high cycle fatigue; duplex stainless steel; ultrasonic fatigue testing; distributed dislocation dipole technique; Materialteknik; Materials Engineering;

    Abstract : Very high cycle fatigue (VHCF) is generally considered as the domain of fatigue lifetime beyond 10 million (107) load cycles. Few examples of structural components which are subjected to 107-109 load cycles during their service life are engine parts, turbine disks, railway axles and load-carrying parts of automobiles.
