  1. 1. Early assessment of composite structures : Framework to analyse the potential of fibre reinforced composites in a structure subjected to multiple load case

    University essay from KTH/Lättkonstruktioner; KTH/Hållfasthetslära (Avd.)

    Author : Srikanth Ananthasubramanian; Priyank Gupta; [2018]
    Keywords : MATLAB; Fibre Reinforced Plastics; finite-element; laminate design; classical laminate theory.;

    Abstract : To meet the need of lightweight chassis in the near future, a technological step of introducing anisotropic materials like Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastics (CFRP) in structural parts of cars is a possible way ahead. Though there are commercially available tools to find suitability of Fibre Reinforced Plastics (FRPs) and their orientations, they depend on numerical optimization and complexity increases with the size of the model.

  3. 3. Simulation of Delamination Migration in Laminated Composite Structures - An Approach Combining Extended Finite Elements and a Cohesive Zone Model

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Hållfasthetslära

    Author : Viktor Björklund; [2018]
    Keywords : Crack propagation modeling; Fiber-reinforced polymer; Laminated composites; FRP; CFRP; Cohesive zone model; CZM; Delamination migration; FEM; XFEM; Fracture mechanics; Progressive damage modeling; Surface-based cohesive behaviour; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites are being used increasingly in lightweight applications where high strength and stiffness is required. One of the main challenges with designing components from such materials is to predict the ultimate strength and behaviour of the structure. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigation of wear behavior of different sliding bearing materials in an alkaline environment

    University essay from

    Author : Martina Ottosson; [2018]
    Keywords : wear; tribology; alkaline; sliding bearing;

    Abstract : In sliding bearing wear is a very common problem and can be affected by several factors. The wear in a bearing can lead to total failure of the component and lower the lifetime. In a sliding bearing used in a machine in the pulp and paper industry large wear has been detected, but no clear evidence of what the wear depends on. READ MORE

  5. 5. Environmental Impact Analysis of Flax Fibre Cultivation for Composite Reinforcement

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för ekoteknik och hållbart byggande

    Author : Elin Jacobsson; [2018]
    Keywords : flax fibre; life cycle assessment; reinforcement; environmental impact assessment;

    Abstract : Searching for environmentally sustainable alternatives for reinforcement of composite materials, flax fibre has one of the most promising potentials due to its desired mechanical properties. The fact that flax is a bio-material, in contrast to conventional synthetic fibres, does not ensure a less environmental impact. READ MORE
