Multiscale Modelling of Softening Materials

Authors: I.M. Gitman, H. Askes, L.J. Sluys
Abstract: A hierarchical multiscale procedure for softening materials is proposed in this paper. A standard multiscale model has been analysed with...


Fretting Fatigue Phenomena on an all Aluminium Alloy Conductor

Authors: Marco Boniardi, Silvia Cincera, Fabrizio D'Errico, Chiara Tagliabue
Abstract: This paper concerns about a failure analysis of an electric all aluminum alloy conductor (AAAC) damaged and broken for fretting fatigue...


Reliability of Fatigue Bahaviour of Weld Metal

Authors: Nenad Gubeljak, Jelena Vojvodič-Tuma, Jožef Predan, Zdravko Tišma
Abstract: The fatigue behavior assessment of high strength low alloy steel has main importance for reliable and safe service of welded structure. The...


Cohesive Zone Modeling of Mode I Fracture in Adhesive Bonded Joints

Authors: Marco Alfano, Franco Furgiuele, A. Leonardi, Carmine Maletta, Glaucio H. Paulino
Abstract: This paper deals with the application of Cohesive Zone Model (CZM) concepts to study mode I fracture in adhesive bonded joints. In...


The Use of the Singular Elastic Peak Stress Evaluated by FE Analyses for Fatigue Strength Assessment of Welded Joints

Authors: Bruno Atzori, Paolo Lazzarin, Giovanni Meneghetti
Abstract: The paper presents a simplified version of the Notch Stress Intensity Factor (NSIF) approach useful for fatigue strength assessments of...


Eurocode 3’s Standard Curves and Theory of Critical Distances to Estimate Fatigue Lifetime of Steel Weldments

Authors: Luca Susmel
Abstract: This paper reports on the use of the Modified Wöhler Curve Method (MWCM) applied along with the Theory of Critical Distances (TCD) to...


Behavior of Microbiological Influenced Corrosion of the Ship Plate Steel in Marine Environment

Authors: Qing Fen Li, Chun Hui Li, Ping Long, Li Li Xue
Abstract: The microbiological influenced corrosion (MIC) behaviors of the ship plate steel directly exposed in different medias (the sterile...


A New Approach for Critical Chloride Content in (Non)Carbonated Concrete

Authors: In Seok Yoon, Eddy A.B. Koenders
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to establish an analytical formulation for determination of the critical chloride content in concrete. In this...
