This book represents the final reports of the scientific projects funded within the DFG-SPP1466 and, hence, provides the reader with the possibility to familiarize with the leading edge of VHCF research. It draws a balance on the existing knowledge and its enhancement by the joint research action of the priority program. Three different material classes are dealt with: structural metallic materials, long-fiber-reinforced polymers and materials used in micro-electro-mechanical systems. The project topics address the development of suitable experimental techniques for high-frequency testing and damage monitoring, the characterization of damage mechanisms and damage evolution, the development of mechanism-based models and the transfer of the obtained knowledge and understanding into engineering regulations and applications.

Engineering Against Fracture - Proceedings of the 1st Conference (Hardcover, 2009 ed.): S. G. Pantelakis, C.A. Rodopoulos Engineering Against Fracture - Proceedings of the 1st Conference (Hardcover, 2009 ed.)

R4,533 Discovery Miles 45 330 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Within the last thirty years there is a growing acknowledgement that prevention of catastrophic failures necessitates engagement of a large pool of expertise. Herein it is not excessive to seek advice from disciplines like materials science, structural engineering, mathematics, physics, reliability engineering and even economics. Today's engineering goals, independently of size; do not have the luxury of being outsideaglobalperspective.Survivaloftheintegratedmarketsand?nancialsystems require a web of safe transportation, energy production and product manufacturing. It is perhaps the ?rst decade in engineering history that multidisciplinary - proaching is not just an idea that needs to materialise but has matured beyond infancy. We can witness such transition by examining engineering job descriptions and postgraduate curricula. The undertaking of organising a conference to re?ect the above was not easy and de?nitely, not something that was brought to life without a lot of work and c- st mitment. The 1 Conference of Engineering Against Fracture from its conceptual day until completion was designed in a way of underlying the need of bringing all the key players on a common ground that once properly cultivated can ?ourish. To achieve that the conference themes were numerous and despite their, in principle notional differences, it was apparent that the attendees established such common ground through argumentation. The reader can see this from the variety of research areas re?ected by the works and keynote lecturers presented.

considering the system engineering of the cutting process
identifying the singularity of the cutting process among other closely related manufacturing processes by chip formation, caused by bending and shear stresses in the deformation zone
suggesting a distinctive way toward predictability of the metal cutting process
devoting special attention to experimental methodology
Metal Cutting Mechanics provides an exceptional balance between general reading and research analysis, presenting industrial and academic requirements in terms of basic scientific factors as well as application potential.

Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical Processes in Fractured Porous Media: Modelling and Benchmarking - From Benchmarking to... Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical Processes in Fractured Porous Media: Modelling and Benchmarking - From Benchmarking to Tutoring (Hardcover, 1st ed. 2018)
Olaf Kolditz, Thomas Nagel, Hua Shao, Wenqing Wang, Sebastian Bauer
R2,884 Discovery Miles 28 840 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

The book comprises the 3rd collection of benchmarks and examples for porous and fractured media mechanics. Analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes is essential to a wide area of applications in environmental engineering, such as geological waste deposition, geothermal energy utilization (shallow and deep systems), carbon capture and storage (CCS) as well as water resources management and hydrology. In order to assess the feasibility, safety as well as sustainability of geoenvironmental applications, model-based simulation is the only way to quantify future scenarios. This charges a huge responsibility concerning the reliability of conceptual models and computational tools. Benchmarking is an appropriate methodology to verify the quality and validate the concept of models based on best practices. Moreover, benchmarking and code comparison are building strong community links. The 3rd THMC benchmark book also introduces benchmark-based tutorials, therefore the subtitle is selected as "From Benchmarking to Tutoring". The benchmark book is part of the OpenGeoSys initiative - an open source project to share knowledge and experience in environmental analysis and scientific computation. The new version of OGS-6 is introduced and first benchmarks are presented therein (see appendices).

Fundamentals of Fracture Mechanics (Hardcover): Tribikram Kundu Fundamentals of Fracture Mechanics (Hardcover)
Tribikram Kundu
R2,476 Discovery Miles 24 760 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Almost all books available on fracture mechanics cover the majority of topics presented in this book, and often much, much more. While great as references, this makes teaching from them more difficult because the materials are not typically presented in the order that most professors cover them in their lectures and more than half the information presented is not covered in an introductory course at all.

Focusing on the needs of students and professors, Fundamentals of Fracture Mechanics offers an introduction to the discipline through careful editing and mindfulness toward the audience. The book begins with a review of the fundamentals of continuum mechanics and the theory of elasticity relevant to fracture mechanics. The following material has been carefully selected, only including topics important enough to be covered in a first course on fracture mechanics. Except for the last chapter, no advanced topics are covered. Therefore, instructors of elementary fracture mechanics courses can easily cover the entire book in a three-unit graduate-level course without having to spend too much time picking and choosing appropriate topics for the course from the vast knowledge presented in most fracture mechanic books available today.

Drawing on over 20 years of teaching, the author supplies practical and useful resources, including practice exercises designed to facilitate enjoyable learning and reference for further study. His clear, concise coverage of essential information makes the book ideal not only for an introductory course but also for self-study.

Introduction To Adiabatic Shear Localization (Revised Edition) (Paperback, Revised ed.): Bradley Dodd, Yilong Bai Introduction To Adiabatic Shear Localization (Revised Edition) (Paperback, Revised ed.)
Bradley Dodd, Yilong Bai
R1,383 Discovery Miles 13 830 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Localized deformation in the form of narrow shear bands are often observed to develop after larger plastic deformations in metals, polymers and powders. Shear bands, being a form of large plastic deformation, are usually the precursors of ductile fracture. Therefore, an improved knowledge of localized deformation, including instability, shear bands, damage and fracture, play a particularly significant role in a wide variety of engineering topics. One example is material processing. Since the 1970s shear banding has been extensively studied by mechanical and metallurgical engineers. There is a pressing requirement in physics and engineering to summarize the knowledge gained and to assist students and researchers to apply this knowledge in their respective areas of technology. This book is an invaluable reference source on the topic of adiabatic shear localization. It provides a systematic description of various aspects of adiabatic shear banding, and the various case studies describe the ways in which the knowledge of adiabatic shear localization can be used in several applications.In this way, readers can easily follow the different approaches and transfer concepts and techniques to help solve the problems they encounter in their own fields of interest.

Materials in Mechanical Extremes - Fundamentals and Applications (Hardcover, New): Neil Bourne Materials in Mechanical Extremes - Fundamentals and Applications (Hardcover, New)
Neil Bourne
R2,469 Discovery Miles 24 690 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

This unified guide brings together the underlying principles, and predictable material responses, that connect metals, polymers, brittle solids and energetic materials as they respond to extreme external stresses. Previously disparate scientific principles, concepts and terminology are combined within a single theoretical framework, across different materials and scales, to provide all the tools necessary to understand, and calculate, the responses of materials and structures to extreme static and dynamic loading. Real-world examples illustrate how material behaviours produce a component response, enabling recognition - and avoidance - of the deformation mechanisms that contribute to mechanical failure. A final synoptic chapter presents a case study of extreme conditions brought about by the infamous Chicxulub impact event. Bringing together simple concepts from diverse fields into a single, accessible, rigorous text, this is an indispensable reference for all researchers and practitioners in materials science, mechanical engineering, physics, physical chemistry and geophysics.

Mohamed Jebahi, Frederic Dau, Jean-Luc Charles, Ivan Iordanoff
R1,904 Discovery Miles 19 040 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Complex behavior models (plasticity, crack, visco-elascticity) are facing several theoretical difficulties in determining the behavior law at the continuous (macroscopic) scale. When homogenization fails to give the right behavior law, a solution is to simulate the material at a mesoscale using the discrete element model (DEM) in order to directly simulate a set of discrete properties that are responsible for the macroscopic behavior. Originally, the discrete element model was developed for granular material. This book, the second in the Discrete Element Model and Simulation of Continuous Materials Behavior set of books, shows how to choose the adequate coupling parameters to avoid spurious wave reflection and to allow the passage of all the dynamic information both from the fine to the coarse model and vice versa. The authors demonstrate the coupling method to simulate a highly nonlinear dynamical problem: the laser shock processing of silica glass.

Fracture Mechanics - Theory, Applications & Research (Paperback): Joseph C Robertson Fracture Mechanics - Theory, Applications & Research (Paperback)
Joseph C Robertson
R1,899 Discovery Miles 18 990 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Classical fracture mechanics that emerged during the 1920s has gained popularity via LEFM from the 1940s to the 1960s. The principles of classical fracture mechanics evolved from experimental observation of the behaviour of glass that contains pre-existing cracks and is largely supported by physical reasoning. Chapter One presents a robust analysis of problems encountered in the field of pipeline networks and boiler components as a result of structural imperfection. Chapter Two deals with an analytical model of cracking, which is induced by thermal stresses in a porous multi-particle-matrix system. This system consists of spherical pores and isotropic spherical particles, which are both periodically distributed in an isotropic infinite matrix. Chapter Three reports on an analytical model of cracking in a multi-particle matrix system with isotropic whiskers, which are periodically distributed in an isotropic infinite matrix.
