Interfacial stresses analysis of damaged structures strengthened with bonded prestressed FRP plate having variable fiber spacing

Ismail Bensaid, Bachir Kerboua, Cheikh Abdelmajid

The purpose of this paper is to develop a new improved solution and a new model to predict both shear and normal interfacial stress in simply supported beams strengthened…

Compression after impact and fatigue behavior of CFRP stiffened panels

Roman Ružek, Konstantinos Tserpes, Evaggelos Karachalios

Impact and fatigue are critical loading conditions for composite aerostructures. Compression behavior after impact and fatigue is a weak point for composite fuselage…

Experimental detection of an early developed crack in rotor-bearing systems using an AMB

Athanasios C. Chasalevris, Chris A. Papadopoulos

The purpose of this paper is to present a method for early crack detection in rotating shafts. A rotor-bearing system, consisting of an elastic rotor mounted on fluid film…

Study on the evolution mechanism of oxidation and copper diffusion and precipitation phenomena and their effect on the surface quality of steel plates

Spyros Papaefthymiou, Constantinos Goulas, Vasiliki Panteleakou

Identification of the critical process conditions that enhance Cu diffusion in ferrite grain boundaries and promote precipitation of Cu-rich particles in the proximity of…

Synthesis, structural and nanomechanical properties of cobalt based thin films

Elias P. Koumoulos, Vasiliki P. Tsikourkitoudi, Ioannis A. Kartsonakis, Vassileios E. Markakis, Nikolaos Papadopoulos, Evangelos Hristoforou, Costas A. Charitidis

The purpose of this paper is to produce cobalt (Co)-based thin films by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (CVD) technique and then to evaluate structural and…

Advanced leaf spring design and analysis with respect to vehicle kinematics and durability

Stylianos Karditsas, Georgios Savaidis, Michail Malikoutsakis

The purpose of this paper is to provide sound understanding of the mutual interactions of the major leaf spring design parameters and their effects on both the stress…

Wing repair using an adhesively bonded boron composite patch – design and verification

Roman Ružek, Radek Doubrava, Jan Raška

Various types of damage or cracking in the structural components of an airframe can occur during the service lifetimes of aging aircraft. These types of damage are…

Strain concentration during the compression of a carbon/epoxy composite after impact

Martin Kadlec, Václav Kafka

Polymer composite panels are widely used in aeronautic and aerospace structures due to the high strength-to-weight ratios of these structures. The purpose of this paper is…

Accelerated carbide tool wear failure during machining of hot work hardened tool steel

George Pantazopoulos, Anagnostis Toulfatzis, Athanasios Vazdirvanidis, Andreas Rikos

The purpose of this paper is to outline and document the failure root cause of a carbide cutting tool during machining of a hardened tool steel under automatic machining…

Waviness and straightness of cylinder and textured piston ring tribo pair

Anastasios Zavos, Pantelis George Nikolakopoulos

The purpose of this paper is to review and to provide a dipper understanding of what happens to piston rings and cylinder surfaces when manufacturing errors depicted, such…
