Studies On Fatigue Crack Propagation In Cementitious Materials : A Dimensional Analysis Approach
Crack propagation in structures when subjected to fatigue loading, follows three different phases namely - short crack growth, stable crack growth and unstable crack growth. Accurate fatigue life prediction demands the ...
Improved Numerical And Numeric-Analytic Schemes In Nonlinear Dynamics And Systems With Finite Rotations
This thesis deals with different computational techniques related to some classes of nonlinear response regimes of engineering interest. The work is mainly divided into two parts. In the first part different numeric-analytic ...
Study Of Multiple Asperity Sliding Contacts
Surfaces are rough, unless special care is taken to make them atomically smooth. Roughness exists at all scales, and any surface-producing operation affects the roughness in certain degrees, specific to the production ...
Towards Measurement And Simulation Of Elasto-Plastic Deformation
The stretch forming process is frequently used in the automotive industry (outer pan- els, inner panels, stiffeners etc.), the packaging industry and household appliances sector, to manufacture complicated shapes and ...
Contact Mechanics Of Layered Structures
Contact mechanical study of layered structures is useful to various fields of engineering, such as - mechanical engineering, civil engineering, materials engineering and biomechanics. Thin hard film coating on a compliant ...
High Reynolds Number Flow Over A Backward-Facing Step
Flow separation and reattachment happens in many fluid mechanical situations occurring in engineering applications as well as in nature. The flow over a backward-facing step represents a geometrically simple flow situation ...
