Ten Veen, M. (author)
Structural ship design is gradually changing from the use of rule-based design methods to more rational-based design methods. The rational-based design methods are entirely based on structural theory and computer-based methods, while the rule-based design methods are formed by prescriptive rules from classification societies. In rational-based...

A model was developed for delamination growth in bonded repair patches under constant amplitude fatigue loading. The model used the finite element method, employing the virtual crack closure technique, to determine the strain energy release rate (SERR) as a function of delamination length. Interaction effects between multiple delaminations, and...

Şen, I. (author)
The strong search for lightweight materials has become a trend in the aerospace industry. Aircraft manufacturers are responding to this trend and new aerospace materials are introduced to build lighter aircrafts. However material manufacturers, like Tata Steel, are unfamiliar with the determination of running loads and the behavior of materials...

The fatigue life of an aircraft is dependent on the loads of the aircraft service spectrum. Due to the variable nature of the load spectrum, fatigue crack growth is accelerated and decelerated by interaction effects. Interaction effects, like crack closure, make an accurate prediction of the fatigue life challenging. The material GLARE, a...
