Chloride induced reinforcement corrosion is the most common degradation mechanisms for reinforced concrete structures. The service life of concrete structures is normally predicted by estimating the rate of chloride ingress and the necessary time to initiate reinforcement corrosion. Normally, chloride ingress is modeled as a diffusive process in...

This Ph.D. thesis investigates the relation between microstructural and mechanical properties of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS), with the goal of developing a microstructure with optimised mechanical properties. Among different grades of AHSS, Quenching and Partitioning (Q&P) steel which is composed of thin films of retained austenite...

Abspoel, R. (author)
In many steel structures like buildings, industrial halls and bridges, standardized hot-rolled sections are used. These sections are divided into specific types in Europe and similar profiles in the USA. The range of hot-rolled sections is limited and therefore fabricated plate girders are used when the standard hot-rolled sections do not meet...

The introduction of advanced high strengths steels enabled automotive manufacturers to simultaneously reduce weight and increase safety of vehicles. However issues were reported concerning the weldability of these steels. These issues concerned both the manufacturability as well as the performance of resistance spot welded joints. The...

This study examines the load and resistance factor design calibration for the ultimate pullout limit state for steel strip reinforced soil walls (SSWs). The tensile loads and pullout capacities of reinforcement strips that were measured during full-scale tests are compared with predicted (nominal) values using analytical models recommended by...

Orthotropic steel decks are widely utilized in long span bridges, movable bridges and shorter span road and rail bridges due to their favourable properties. These properties are low deadweight, large plastic reserves in case of overload and aesthetic advantages. Nowadays, more than 1000 orthotropic steel deck bridges (OSDBs) have been built in...

Alloy design by the traditional trial and error approach is known to be a time consuming and a highly cost procedure, especially for the design of heat resistant steel where the feedback time is intrinsically long. The significant developments in computational simulation techniques in the last decades have made a theory-guided computational...

In practice, reinforced concrete structures may encounter different kinds of curing conditions
due to the weather (sun radiation, air moisture and wind), nearby external environment
(seawater, attack of stray current arising from nearby railways), or human factors (insufficient
curing period). In some extreme conditions, the...

The partitioning behaviour of carbon, phosphorous and boron during the solidification of a resistance spot weld pool was studied using experimental simulations and a phase field model. Steels with varying carbon, phosphorous and boron contents were designed and subjected to a range of resistant spot welding thermal cycles. Mechanical properties...

A multiscale approach termed the generalized grain cluster method (GGCM) is presented, which can be applied for the prediction of the macroscopic behavior of an aggregate of single crystal grains composing a multiphase material. The GGCM is based on the minimization of a functional that depends on the microscopic deformation gradients in the...

Chloride-induced corrosion is a point of big concern in reinforced concrete (RC) structures. To monitor the actual health and to predict the remaining service-life of structures, it is important to understand the structural behaviour and the failure mechanism of structures exposed to chlorides under fatigue loading conditions. A beam test,...

In order to adequately characterize the fatigue response of the various membranes with surrounding multilayer surfacing layers on orthotropic steel decks and collect the necessary parameters for FE modeling, the details of the cyclic Membrane Adhesion Tester (MAT) are introduced. The fatigue damage in membrane interface is related to the amount...

Weight reduction of car bodies can be achieved by application of steel components with a lower thickness; however mechanical properties (for constructive and safety reasons) must be maintained, which can be achieved by using (U)HSS steels. These steels have been designed and optimized for improved mechanical behavior and therefore normally have...

Advanced high strength steels (AHSS) have been used extensively in the automotive industries. The main characteristic of these steels is combination of high strength and enhanced formability that makes them very attractive for automotive application. However, the major drawback of these steels is their poor corrosion resistance. Hence, Hot-dip...

The orientation dependence of the austenite-to-martensite transformation during uniaxial tensile testing was modelled using the phenomenological theory of martensite crystallography and the mechanical driving force. It was validated experimentally by means of electron backscatter diffraction measurements on a pre-defined zone of a quenched and...

Chromium (Cr), Manganese (Mn), and Carbon (C) are well known alloying elements used in technologically important alloy steels and advanced high strength steels. It is known that binary CrCx and MnCx carbides can be formed in steels, but in this study we reveal for the first time that Cr and Mn were found combined in novel ternary cementite type ...

The martensitic transformation behaviour of the metastable austenite phase in low-alloyed transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) steels has been studied in situ using high-energy X-ray diffraction during deformation. The austenite stability during tensile deformation has been evaluated at different length scales. A powder diffraction analysis...

While earlier studies on transformation-induced-plasticity (TRIP) steels focused on the determination of the austenite-to-martensite decomposition in uniform deformation or thermal fields, the current research focuses on the determination of the local retained austenite-to-martensite transformation behaviour in an inhomogeneous yet carefully...
