  1. 1. Damage and thermally induced defects in railway materials

    Författare :Casey Jessop; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Sammanfattning : A major concern for the railway industry today is the problem of rolling contact fatigue (RCF) damage in wheels and rails as a result of increased traffic, accelerations, and loading conditions. The wheel/rail contact condition that occurs in railway applications is complex, and it is essential to understand the associated damage from combined mechanical and thermal loadings in order to predict component life and develop appropriate maintenance systems.

  2. 2. Thermally Induced Fracture Performance of Asphalt Mixtures

    Författare :Prabir Kumar Das; Björn Birgisson; Dallas Little; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Low temperature cracking; asphalt concrete fracture mechanics; viscoelasticity; non-linear thermal contraction coefficient; atomic force microscopy; wax; wax crystallization; SRA - Transport; SRA - Transport;

    Sammanfattning : A major distress mode in asphalt pavements is low temperature cracking, which results from the contraction and expansion of the asphalt pavement under extreme temperature changes. The potential for low temperature cracking is an interplay between the environment, the road structure and importantly the properties of the asphalt mixture. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Thetemperature induceddamage in asphalt mixtureshas always been a major distress that requires a substantialconsiderationin the asphalt industry. One of the most important aspects of studying temperature induceddamage is developing a practical test method for evaluation of the material’s resistanceto it. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Oxidation induced failure of superalloys: High temperature crack growth and oxide scale properties

    Författare :Anand Harihara Subramonia Iyer; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; micromechanical testing; crack growth; Nickel superalloys; scanning electron microscopy; focused ion beam microscopy;

    Sammanfattning : Gas turbine materials are designed to work in extreme environments in high temperature with an oxidising environment and variable mechanical loading. The study of high temperature fatigue properties of these materials is therefore important. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Hydrogen diffusion and ion implantation in silicon carbide

    Författare :Martin Janson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :heat abd tgernidtbanucs; electronics and electrical; materials science;

    Sammanfattning : Secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) has been employed tostudy the spatial distributions resulting from mass transportby diffusion and ion implantation in single crystal siliconcarbide (SiC). By a systematic analysis of this data,fundamental processes that govern these phenomena have beenderived. LÄS MER
