Numerical simulation of quasi-static model of ionic transport through deformable porous media

The paper deals with the computational model of quasi-static transport of 2-component electrolyte solution transport trough deformable porous medium respecting material microstructure. The multiscale approach is used to derive effective tensors describing macroscopic homogenized body. Numerical simulation are&#...

Estimation of mechanical parameters of thin films using finite element analysis

This study shows a methodology to estimate mechanical parameters of thin films by means of a bulge test and a numerical approach. The methodology is based on the combination of finite element analysis with a classical analytical method. Finite element modelling was conducted for&#x...

Sensitivity analysis of the crack evaluation for steam turbine casings loaded by pressure and temperatures

The operation of steam turbines is related to the extreme conditions such as high pressure and temperature, which can lead to fatigue issues and subsequent undesirable problems. This paper is focused on the methodology for the fracture analysis of turbine casings. The evaluation me...

Post-processing techniques for response of non-linear systems

Challenges in modern engineering require implementation of more and more complex computational models. The computational models are often non-linear and even a slight modification of a design parameter can cause qualitative changes in a predicted response. Several visualisation methods which impr...

Advanced testing in rolling contact fatigue for wheel material investigation

Presented paper deals with advanced testing in rolling contact fatigue for wheel material investigation for one type of material, which is used for production process of rail wheel rims. These days, there is no EU standard, which would specify rolling contact fatigue test condition...
