Cell models for the thermodynamics and kinetics of interstitials in metallic solutions
This study investigates the thermodynamics and kinetics of hydrogen in a binary palladium-based metal solution using classical jump rate theory applied to the cell model approach. An electrochemical technique is used to ...
A probabilistic model for fatigue damage accumulation in composite laminates
A stochastic model for the accumulation of fatigue damage in composite laminates is proposed. The model considers the accumulation of fatigue damage as an evolutionary stochastic process and attempts to predict the ...
The selection and synthesis of a coating for the stabilization of water splitting photoelectrodes
The objective of this work was to select and process an electrically insulating thin film suitable for the photoelectrodes used in solar to chemical energy conversion where the current flow would occur by quantum tunneling. ...
A finite element study of the effects of residual stress on conical indentation
The finite element method has been used to study the behavior of an aluminum alloy during elastic-plastic indentation by a rigid conical indenter to determine how the indentation process is affected by residual stress. The ...
Energy release rate in a cracked elastic-plastic solid
To predict the growth of a crack in a body, Griffith introduced, for linear elastic materials, the concept of the energy release rate. According to this concept, crack growth occurs when the work done on a body by the ...
