  1. 1. On Postbuckling Analysis of Thin-walled Structures Numerical and Statistical Approaches

    Författare :Mats Ander; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :postbuckling; hierarchical elements; imperfection sensitivity; displacement gradients; total Lagrange formulation; geometrically non-linear structures;

    Sammanfattning : Thin-walled structural elements, such as plates, shells and beams are important load carrying components in civil-, mechanical-, automotive- aeronautical- and marine engineering structures. In order to reduce the weight thin-walled structures are given an optimum design making them sensitive to unforeseen deviations in geometry, boundary conditions, material properties and applied loads.

  2. 2. Strength of Sandwich Panels Loaded in In-plane Compression

    Författare :Anders Lindström; Dan Zenkert; Stefan Hallström; Per-Lennart Larsson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; sandwich; in-plane compression; energy absorption; debond; postbuckling; Engineering mechanics; Teknisk mekanik;

    Sammanfattning : The use of composite materials in vehicle structures could reduce the weight and thereby the fuel consumption of vehicles. As the road safety of the vehicles must be ensured, it is vital that the energy absorbing capability of the composite materials are similar to or better than the commonly used steel structures.

  3. 3. On some Fatigue Problems Related to Steel Bridges

    Författare :Roberto Crocetti; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :modular bridge expansion joints; full-scale testing; web breathing; postbuckling behaviour; fatigue; riveted connections;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis concerns three specific fatigue topics related to steel members in bridges, namely: (1) Modular Bridge Expansion Joints (MBEJs). Several premature fatigue failures of MBEJs have occurred in Europe and USA during the past decades. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Branch Identification in Elastic Stability Analysis

    Författare :Anders Magnusson; Hållfasthetslära; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vacuum technology; hydraulics; Mechanical engineering; Produktionsteknik; Production technology; FEM; computer simulation; bifurcation; stability; vibration and acoustic engineering; Maskinteknik; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis, methods to determine the static postbuckling behaviour of elastic structures undergoing large deformations, are considered and developed. Since the governing non-linear equations usually becomes too complex to be handled analytically, the main focus has been on developing methods that can be incorporated into a numerical solution scheme, such as the finite element method.
