  1. 1. Modeling of structural integrity of aged low alloy steels using non-local mechanics

    Author : Magnus Boåsen; Pål Efsing; Jacques Besson; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : Ageing of low alloy steels affects the structural integrity assessment as it most commonly causes embrittlement and a hardening of the material. This is due to theevolution of the microstructure during operation in the specific application. READ MORE

  2. 2. Monitoring and Control of Robotized Laser Metal-Wire Deposition

    Author : Almir Heralic; Alexander Kaplan; Högskolan Väst; []

    Abstract : The thesis gives a number of solutions towards full automation of the promising manufacturing technology Robotized Laser Metal-wire Deposition (RLMwD). RLMwD offers great cost and weight saving potentials in the manufacturing industry. READ MORE

  3. 3. Towards Automation of Non-Destructive Testing of Welds

    Author : Patrik Broberg; Mikael Sjödahl; Anna Runnemalm; Torbjörn Löfqvist; Högskolan Väst; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Welding; non-destructive testing; NDT; Industriell arbetsvetenskap; Industrial engineering; Experimentell mekanik; Experimental Mechanics;

    Abstract : All welding processes can give rise to defects that will weaken the joint and can lead to failure of the welded structure. Because of this, non-destructive testing (NDT) of welds have become increasingly important to ensure the structural integrity when the material becomes thinner and stronger and welds become smaller; all to reduce weight in order to save material and reduce emissions due to lighter constructions.

  4. 4. Modelling of Radiographic Testing to Derive a Detection Positioning and Sizing Algorithm for Pore Defects

    Author : Erik Lindgren; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : When laser welding light weight materials, e.g. aluminium and titanium based alloys, small sub-millimeter pore defects occasionally forms. Due to their small sizes, less than some 0. READ MORE

  5. 5. Fracture Mechanics in Design and Assessment of Existing Structures: Two Case Studies

    Author : Pourya Noury; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Steel Structures; Stålbyggnad;

    Abstract : In the present thesis, the application of fracture mechanics in design and assessment of steel structures has been studied.The first case study concerns a ring-flange connection used in wind turbine towers. The flange is rolled from straight steel profile into a complete ring. READ MORE
