A numerical model for corrosion pit propagation under mechanical loading is presented. The level set method is used for corrosion front tracking and also enables the domain to be split into a solid and a pit domain. In the pit the diffusion of atoms originating from the dissolution process occurring at the pit front is simulated. The model is...

Curved aluminium extrusions are applied in a wide range of industrial applications. Because extrusions are initially straight, an additional process is required to curve the product. Undesired wrinkling of the plate part at the inner radius is frequently observed during the curving process. Wrinkling has already been extensively studied for the...

The effect of embedding in concrete on the fatigue performance of steel reinforcement bars is not evident. Some test series provided in literature demonstrate a higher fatigue resistance of embedded bars as compared to bars in air, whereas others provide a lower resistance. In addition, debate exists on the mechanisms behind the difference...

Hot-riveted connections have been widely used in the past for metallic bridges, of which a large part is still in service, making relevant the assessment of their fatigue life. Previous studies have shown that the fatigue behavior of hot-riveted connections depends on many factors; among these, the residual tensile force in the rivets that...

Bolted connections are applied in many aluminium structures. Stainless steel bolts are often preferred over carbon steel bolts in aluminium connections to prevent galvanic corrosion. However, current design standards and guidelines do not allow for using preloaded stainless steel bolts in slip resistant connections, mainly because of a lack of...

This paper presents a probabilistic fatigue life prediction model for welded details subjected to variable amplitude random loading, using the nominal stress approach. The proposed model makes use of CA S-N curves in combination with the relative damage rule which allows to globally account for load interaction effects, and the damage limit...

Rolled steel plates and sections are often applied in structures in such a way that the principal load direction corresponds with the rolling direction. Examples are beams, arches, or pylons of bridges, supporting beams of ship decks, and the main elements of crane structures. However, some types of structure are subjected to a multiaxial stress...

This present paper concerns the application of probabilistic fatigue life prediction models based on S–N curves aiming at the estimation of the safety level for a nonload carrying cruciform joint. The safety level is expressed in terms of the reliability index as a function of the number of applied cycles. Estimating the reliability of a...

Fatigue verification of bridge structures requires information on the loads induced by heavy vehicles, which can be obtained from weigh in motion measurement (WIM) systems. The current fatigue load models applied in Europe are based on traffic load measurements in 1986. This paper evaluates the appropriateness of these models for today’s traffic...

Load sequence effects in fatigue crack growth, such as retardation and acceleration due to a large overload (OL) and underload (UL), can dramatically change the (remaining) fatigue life. These effects can be determined using analytical and numerical tools, often trading accuracy for a steep increase in required calculation time. This paper...

Crack closure effects during fatigue crack growth have been studied by many researchers with the finite element method, but appears difficult to accurately predict. Although quantification of crack closure may be a bridge too far, finite element models may help explaining observations from tests and give insight into trends. This paper studies...

This experimental study considers load sequence effects in fatigue crack growth in coupon specimens and in element specimens. The coupon specimens were standard edge crack configurations cyclically loaded under four point bending on base metal and welds, whereas the element specimens were full-scale axially loaded tubular joints. Whereas load...

Structures are subjected to cyclic loads that can vary in direction and magnitude, causing constant amplitude mode I simulations to be too simplistic. This study presents a new approach for fatigue crack propagation in ductile materials that can capture mixed-mode loading and overloading. The extended finite element method is used to deal with...

A multi-scale approach is proposed to simulate the fire resistance of panels used in façades of buildings: Using existing models, fire is modelled by CFD, its effects in the façade found via a thermodynamical model. Then a thermomechanical model predicts the mechanical behaviour, using linear elastic springs for the connections holding the...

A self-supporting sandwich panel facade system under fire is studied. First, a thermomechanical FE model, which comprises the complete facade system, and incorporates material degradation and geometrical nonlinear behaviour except for the insulation material and connections, is loaded by a fire temperature curve. Eurocode design rules then...

The strength and stability of aluminium structures are expected to be determined with formulas from the design standards for aluminium structures. In Europe, the latter are represented by Eurocode 9. In case structural components are made of hollow sections, widely used in the aluminium built environment, Eurocode 9 does not provide design rules...

In order to design structural details of bridges for fatigue, the current version of the Eurocode for steel structures recommends partial factors for fatigue resistance based on the consequences of failure and on the maintenance method. The safe-life method is used for details where local formation of cracks could rapidly lead to failure or for...
