The Al-Zn-Mg-Cu alloy 7050 produced by Alcoa is a typical plate and forging alloy because of its low quench sensitivity. In order to compare this alloy with the earlier tested plate alloy 7010 an experimental programme was performed involving tensile, fracture toughness, and fatigue testing. In addition stress corrosion crack initiation and...

A comparative experimental investigation was done on the advanced plate alloys 7010-T651 from ALCAN and 7150-T6E189 from ALCOA. The mechanical properties, fracture toughness and corrosion properties were determined. The most notable finding was the excellent fracture toughness of alloy 7150-T6E189 combined with a high tensile strength. The...

Composite materials with more than one type of fiber in one matrix are known as hybrid composites. In this work the fatigue behaviour of composite materials is discussed and the behaviour of hybrid composites is related to simple (single-fiber) composites. The properties and the behaviour of hybrid composites can mostly be explained...

Titanium alloys possess good corrosion properties, high temperature stability and high strength-to-weight ratio. However, they fall short in providing the optimum strength-ductility relation in the most demanding structural applications, including the aerospace sector. Inspired by the possibility of enhancing the strength-ductility relation in...

The in-plane and out-of-plane mechanical behaviour of both ultrasonically spot-welded and mechanically fastened joints was investigated by double-lap shear and pull-through tests, respectively. Spot-welded specimens showed comparable onset failure load and significantly higher joint stiffness compared to mechanical fasteners when carrying shear...

The alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is an important problem that has yet to be completely understood. Owing to the complexity of this<br/>phenomenon, a number of studies have been conducted to characterize its kinetics, its impact on the material, and its structural consequences.<br/>This paper focuses on the deteriorating impact of ASR on concrete...

The assessment of concrete structures affected by alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is a complex problem due to the multiscale nature of this long-term phenomenon. The reaction starts within the concrete constituents with the formation of an expansive alkali-silica gel at reaction products level. Being the expansive gel confined within the concrete...

The alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in concrete is one of the most harmful deterioration processes, which leads to expansion and cracking of the material. To understand the evolution of ASR in concrete and its deteriorating impact on the material, a multiscale material model, from aggregate to concrete level, is proposed. The concrete, which at...

Electrically conductive asphalt concrete has the potential to satisfy multifunctional applications. Designing such asphalt concrete needs to balance the electrical and mechanical performance of asphalt concrete. The objective of this study is to design electrically conductive asphalt concrete without compromising on the mechanical properties...

The present research was aimed at developing magnesium-matrix composites that could allow effective control over their physiochemical and mechanical responses when in contact with physiological solutions. A biodegradable, bioactive ceramic - bredigite was chosen as the reinforcing phase in the composites, based on the hypothesis that the...

Starting point in this research is to find a quick and non-destructive method to characterize the mechanical properties of existing masonry. Tests on cylindrical cores have been recently introduced as a novel in-situ testing method to identify the properties of existing clay brick masonry. Currently, some researchers reported promising results,...

A first-principles-based computational tool for simulating phonons of magnetic random solid solutions including thermal magnetic fluctuations is developed. The method takes fluctuations of force constants due to magnetic excitations as well as due to chemical disorder into account. The developed approach correctly predicts the experimentally...

Metal foams are cellular solids that show some unique properties which cannot be found in other natural or human-made materials. While the impact characteristics of closed-cell foams under static and impact loadings appear to be well-studied in the literature, the impact behaviour of open-cell foams is not yet well-understood. In this study,...

Magnesium and its alloys have the intrinsic capability of degrading over time in vivo without leaving toxic degradation products. They are therefore suitable for use as biodegradable scaffolds that are replaced by the regenerated tissues. One of the main concerns for such applications, particularly in load-bearing areas, is the sufficient...
