The purpose of this study is to characterize the effects of heat damage on the electrical conductivity and static mechanical properties of aluminum alloys. The data resulting from the experiments of thermal exposure of several aluminum alloys are...
Abstract: Fatigue behavior of polyvinylidiene fluoride (PVDF) pipes is investigated under low temperatures to characterize the temperature effects. The analysis included experimental evaluation of fatigue life for test samples taken directly from the...
Abstract: The path-independent J-integral is used as a fracture prediction criterion for loading beyond the elastic limit as Linear Elastic Fracture Mechanics (LEFM) cannot be applied. While J was originally defined from an energy perspective, it...
Abstract:  Fully-developed plastic stress fields around sharp wedge-shaped notches of perfectly-plastic pressure-sensitive materials are investigated for plane-stress case and symmetric tensile loading conditions. The pressure-sensitive yielding...
