The fatigue life prediction of post-buckled composite structures represents still an unresolved issue due to the complexity of the phenomenon and the high costs of experimental testing. In this paper, a novel numerical approach, called “Min-Max Load Approach”, is used to analyze the behavior of a composite single-stringer specimen with an...

A novel approach is proposed to reduce, compared with the conventional binning approach, the large number of aeroelastic code evaluations that are necessary to obtain equivalent loads acting on wind turbines. These loads describe the effect of long-term environmental variability on the fatigue loads of a horizontal-axis wind turbine. In...

The effect of adhesive thickness on fatigue crack growth in an epoxy film adhesive (FM94) was investigated, using a combination of experiments and numerical modelling. For the range of thicknesses investigated an increased thickness led to an increased crack growth rate. It was found that the energy required per unit of crack growth did not...

Surface cracked steel plates reinforced with single-side Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) subjected to cyclic tension are experimental studied. The main purpose is to analyze the effect of FRP reinforcement on the crack growth. The failure modes and their effects are analyzed as well. Given the single-side reinforcement, reinforcing the cracked...

For the treatment of large bony defects, no perfect solution has been yet found, partially due to the unavailability of ideal bone implants. Additively manufactured (AM) biodegradable porous metals provide unprecedented opportunities to fulfil the requirements for ideal bone implants to be used in such treatments. Firstly, the multi-scale...

In this work, an approach based on the Virtual Crack Closure Technique, included in the commercial finite element code ABAQUS, is adopted to study the propagation of delamination in composite structures under quasi-static and fatigue loads. The methodology, originally capable of simulating only delamination under quasi-static loads, has...

Structural geometry and stochastic loads such as swell and wind seas can typically induce multiaxial stress states in welded details of marine structures. It is known that such complex time varying stress states determine the fatigue resistance of welded steel joints. Therefore, it is of importance to account for them in fatigue lifetime...

High-strength low-alloy steels (HSLA) are gaining popularity in structural applications in which weight reduction is of interest, such as heavy duty machinery, bridges, and offshore structures. Since the fatigue behavior of welds appears to be almost independent of the base material and displays little improvement when more resistant steel...

Bone quantity and quality are considered the main predictors of bone mechanical properties (i.e., strength and fracture resistance). These factors deal with the morphology and chemical composition of bone and can be assessed by non-invasive techniques such as dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA), providing the bone mineral density (BMD) and...

Self-healing of asphalt concrete (AC) is highly dependent on temperature, and its healing capacity increases with elevated temperatures. The main objective of this study is to investigate the effect of microwave heating on promotion of self-healing in AC. With this purpose, two types of AC specimens (neat AC without additives and conductive...

Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) are environments with a high level of sensory stress. Medical advances and technology have contributed to increase the ratio of survival of premature infants but some devices and practices expose these babies to excessive noise and toxic sensory stimuli for which they are not prepared. This is related to...

In the present work, a fatigue damage analysis of biaxial Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) specimens loaded at two different stress levels and a fatigue ratio, R=0.1, was performed. A cycle-by-cycle approach was used, utilizing results from Acoustic Emission (AE) measurements. The aim was to investigate the influence of the applied...

This paper investigates the root cause of a failure in gas-turbine blades, made of Nimonic-105 nickel-based superalloy. The failure was reported in two blades in the second stage of a turbine-compressor of a gas turbine in the hot section. Two failed blades were broken from the root and from the airfoil. The failure took place after 20 k h of...

The surface crack, also known as the partly through-thickness crack, is a serious threat to the structural integrity of offshore metallic pipes. In this paper, we review the research progress in regard to surface crack growth in metallic pipes subjected to cyclic loads from the fracture mechanics perspective. The purpose is to provide state-of...

Recently warm mix asphalt (WMA) technologies have been introduced to rubberized asphalt mixtures to decrease the required construction temperatures and to alleviate the hazardous gas emissions. Rubberized asphalt pavements combining with WMA have the potential to improve the long-term pavement performance. This study aims to investigate the...

An analytical model to predict the fatigue life of a composite laminate is formulated. The model calculates stresses in each ply using classical lamination theory, degrades the residual strength using the linear wear-out law and predicts failure based on Tsai Wu failure theory. The cycles to failure are predicted using the updated cycle-by...

With the introduction of fibre metal laminates (FMLs) as a (fatigue) damage tolerant material concept in aeronautics, an interesting field emerged where fatigue damage interaction plays a dominant role. The hybrid concept effectively demands evaluating fatigue damage growth based on fracture phenomena typical for both metals and fibre...

Hypnosis has already been used in very long flights by Bertrand Piccard, one of the two Solar Impulse pilots, to manage fatigue and rest periods. It is also used by navigators like Armel Le Cléac’h during solo races. For this reason we consider it is worth to look at such technics to cope with the constraints of long flights. A study was done in...
