The paper describes a computer analysis of the pull-out test used to determine the force needed to pull out a fragment of rock and the shape of this broken fragment. The analyzed material is sandstone and porphyry. The analysis included a comparison of different methods of propagation of cracks in the Abaqus computer program using the Finite Element Method. The work also contains a description of laboratory tests and analytical considerations.
The paper deals with a proposition of obtaining an analytical solution for a beam on elastic foundation. The main objective of presented work was stability analysis of the axially compressed beam. The analytical model was proposed. Shape function for inhomogeneous properties of the foundation was assumed. The Galerkin method was used to calculate the values of critical forces. Main conditions have been defined. The critical loads as a function of geometric and mechanical properties of...
Study of the Distribution of Normal Contact Pressure Between Parts Joined in a Multi-Bolted System under Operational LoadsRafał GRZEJDA
Modelling and calculations of unsymmetrical multi-bolted connections treated as a system for different bolt models and contact layer models between the joined parts are presented. The modelling refers to preloaded and externally loaded connections. The systemic models of the connection for two substitute models of bolts are shown. Between the joined parts two types of the Winkler model of a contact layer are taken into consideration. Calculations were made for an exemplary unsymmetrical connection. Its...
Analytical and Numerical Studies of an Unsymmetrical Sandwich Beam – Bending, Buckling and Free VibrationKrzysztof MAGNUCKI, Ewa MAGNUCKA-BLANDZI, Jerzy LEWIŃSKI & Szymon MILECKI
The subject of the paper is an unsymmetrical sandwich beam. The thicknesses and mechanical properties of the beam faces are different. Mathematical model of the beam is formulated based on the classical broken-line hypothesis. The equations of motions of the beam is derived on the ground of the Hamilton’s principle. Bending, buckling and free-vibration are studied in detail for exemplary unsymmetrical structure of the beam. The values of deflection, critical force and natural frequency are...
Multi-Scale Numerical Analysis of the Effect of Microstructural Features on the Mechanical Behavior of Polycrystalline Ti-6Al-4V AlloyFatna BENMESSAOUD, Vincent VELAY, Mohammed CHEIKH, Vanessa VIDAL, Christine BOHER & Farhad RÉZAÏ-ARIA
The present work aims to model the influence of microstructural features of Ti-6Al-4V titanium alloy on its mechanical behavior. A multi-scale approach based on crystal plasticity is considered. The elasto-viscoplastic constitutive equations of Meric-Cailletaud are modified to take into consideration the effect of the grain size by introducing the Hall-Petch relationship at the local scale. This modified model is coupled with finite element calculations under small strain assumption to simulate the monotonic mechanical behavior of...
Flange connections can commonly be seen in advertising board structures, which are subjected to wind loading. Depending on the structure’s geometry, additional torsion forces should be taken into account. In this paper the static behaviour of a flange connection with highstrength bolts under torsion load has been discussed. The numerical analysis concerns two cases: a flange connection subjected only to a high-strength bolts prestressing load and a flange connection subjected to both – bolts prestressing...
