Advanced Assessment Concepts for Light Weight Structures
Alfred Cornec, GKSS Research Centre
The presentation shows some aspects from the current materials reaseach R&D program at the Institute of Materials Research at GKSS Research Centre. The considered field is restricted primarily to mechanical modelling of fracture and damage in metal alloys (Titanium-Aluminides, Aluminium, and Magnesium). The mechanical modelling ranges from the microstructural lenght scale up to full component conditions, mainly under quasi-static loading and room-temperature service conditions. Modelling is currently also extented to low cycle fatigue. Structural mechanics is focused finally on estabishing advanced structural integrity methods predicting failure of complex loaded structures by modelling the material behaviour, characterization of model parameters, simulations and experimental verifications. The benefit is related to achieve reliable saftey conditions for arbitrary new designs of structures made of new materials and joining techniques, the reduction of conservatisms in current regulations, accellerating certification of new products.
Structural strength and life analysis with FEM and typical jet
engine / gas turbine components
Per Ekedahl, Volvo Aero Corporation
In the turbine world many analysis can be performed as axisymmtric which is a large advantage for ease of modelling and computation. The main concerns related to components as rotor disks and stator vanes with support structures is the mixed thermal gradient and pressure / centrifugal type loads. Almost no material testing involves the mixture of load- and displacement control which would be a realistic test condition. Moreover, the common ambiguity of triaxial stress conditions and superimposed LCF / HCF fatigue phenomena are tricky to fully comprise in analytical models.
