Debonding crack propagation at the composite-to-steel interface has been found to be an important failure mechanism for wrapped composite joints under static and fatigue loads. Friction at the interface behind the crack tip may deviate fatigue debonding of the joints from the linear-fracture-mechanics behaviour. This paper presents static and...

In this paper, a numerical simulation method of mixed-mode fatigue crack propagation was explored using the extended finite element method (XFEM) and the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT). Both 2D and 3D numerical models were selected to simulate the fatigue crack propagation of steel specimens. Two coefficients were proposed to...

Hydrogen as an alternative energy source has risen in popularity due to increased environmental awareness. Existing natural gas infrastructure is considered as a means to transport hydrogen, due to practicality and financial aspects. However, hydrogen can deteriorate the fatigue behaviour and thus induce premature failure. Since fatigue is a...

In our modern world, where computers, mobile phones and many other applications have become indispensable, there is a growing need for high precision machines in order to be able to produce these technologies. For these complex high precision applications it is important to understand the fatigue properties of the materials used to prevent...

Orthotropic steel decks (OSD's) are susceptible to fatigue failure due to cyclic loading. Often fatigue cracks are found in the joint between the deck plate and the trough. Due to the welding process, residual stresses are present in and around the joint. In this paper, the effect of residual stresses on the fatigue crack propagation rate has...

The assessment of fatigue crack propagation of steel structures is essential and important especially to improve the application of high strength steel in construction. The load ratio R, reflecting mean stress effects, will be changed with crack extension in the steel structures with complicated geometry. In this paper, the Walker equation is...

Additive Manufacturing (AM), commonly known as 3D printing, exemplifies the recently emerging processing methodologies that aim to substitute the conventional routes, such as to produce parts with complex geometries and eliminate expensive tooling. AM also allows high degree of freedom and rapid prototyping for functional part optimization. This...

Orthotropic steel decks (OSDs) are susceptible to fatigue failure due to cyclic loading by heavy traffic passing the deck. These cyclic loads can cause fatigue cracks in the rib-to-deck joint. In and around the joint residual stresses are present due to the welding process. In this thesis, the effects of residual stresses on the fatigue crack...

Functionally graded materials (FGMs) represent a new class of materials that consist of graded compositional and microstructural patterns allowing to tailor properties. Additive manufacturing (AM) or more commonly known as 3D-printing offers a paradigm shift in FGMs and engineering design due to its ability to produce components with complex...

Orthotropic Steel Decks (OSDs) are widely used in various types of steel bridges due to their benefits of light weight, high load bearing capacity and speedy construction. Although many improvements in aspects of design, fabrication, inspection, and maintenance have been achieved over the years for such bridge decks, fatigue remains a...

Flight simulation fatigue crack propagation tests with gust spectrum loading were carried out on 2024-T3/carbon-epoxy, 7475-T76l/carbon-epoxy and Ti-6Al-4V/carbon-epoxy laminates with nominal weight savings of -30% as compared to equivalent 2024-T3 panels. The performance of the 2024-T3/carbon-epoxy laminates was much superior to those of the...

Flight simulation fatigu-e crack propagation tests were carried out on 2024-T3, 7475-T761 and mill annealed Ti-6A1-4V sheet in thicknesses up to 3 miri and representative for transport aircraft lower wing skin stiffened panels of end load capacities 1.5 and 3 MN/m. The performance of 2024-T3 was much superior, owing mainly to greater retardation...
