  1. 1. Adhesive modelling in multi-material structures : Evaluating the strength and fatigue life of adhesive joints

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Mekanik och hållfasthetslära

    Author : Nitin Narayanaswamy; [2020]
    Keywords : Adhesive Joints Strength Calculation J Integral Method Energy Release Rate Theory Crack Finite Element Analysis Multi Material Structures Automotive;

    Abstract : Advancements in material science and manufacturing techniques are enabling the use of lightweight metal alloys and polymer composites in several combinations and shapes for producing more efficient and lightweight structures for automotive applications without compromising strength, stiffness and/or durability. When evaluating the strength of the structure, the joints are of importance. READ MORE

  2. 2. Techniques for Improving Weldability and Testing of Weld-bonded Joints

    University essay from KTH/Maskinkonstruktion (Inst.)

    Author : Mattias Högsäter Myhr; [2020]
    Keywords : Adhesives; Automotive industry; Resistance Spot Welding; RSW; Weldability; Weld-bonding; Welding parameters; Fordonsindustri; Limning; Limpunktsvetsning; Motståndssvetsning; Punktsvetsning; Svetsbarhet; Svetsparametrar;

    Abstract : Increased understanding of improving the weld-bonding process is essential in order for the automotive industry to constantly develop their designs and production processes for the energy-efficient vehicles of the future. The joining method of weld-bonding, a hybrid method of adhesive joining and resistance spot welding, has introduced new challenges in the manufacturing and design of auto bodies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Optical Characterization of Lignin Nanoparticles

    University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för teknikvetenskap och matematik

    Author : Kristoffer Linder; [2020]
    Keywords : lignin; nanoparticles; nanoparticle; optical characterization; optical properties; surface plasmon resonance;

    Abstract : Lignin is one of the main components of wood and plants that acts as a kind of glue providing mechanical strength. It is a main polymer component composed from three phenolic structures, i.e. p-hydroxyphenyl (H), guaiacyl (G) and syringyl (S) units. READ MORE

  4. 4. Synthetic Functionalization of Colloidal Lignin Particles for Wood Adhesive Applications

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Fusi Alexander Deen; [2020]
    Keywords : Lignin; Colloidal Lignin Particles; Glyoxal; CLPs; adhesive; Lignin; kolloidala ligninpartiklar; glyoxal; CLP; lim;

    Abstract : Functionalizable spherical colloidal lignin particles (CLPs) represent a valuable asset for the valorization of lignin side-streams from the pulp industry. The spherical structure allows for the circumvention of the heterogeneous and poorly dispersible structure of the biopolymer. READ MORE

  5. 5. Design of bi-adhesive joint for optimal strength

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Siva Koti Reddy Vennapusa; [2019]
    Keywords : Bi-adhesive joint; Linear elastic fracture mechanics; Cohesive zone modelling; Optimization;

    Abstract : To support the trust in the design development of adhesively bonded joints, it is important to precisely predict their mechanical failure load. A numerical simulation model with a two-dimensional linear elastic cohesive zone model using a combination of a soft and a stiff adhesive is developed to optimize the strength of a lap-joint.
