Abstract

A constitutive model devised for the analysis of concrete structures, and suitable for generic two- or three-dimensional applications, is presented and validated. For plain concrete a tension-compression [...]

Abstract

This work adopts a fast and accurate two-stage computational strategy for the analysis of FSW (Friction stir welding) processes using threaded cylindrical pin tools. [...]

Abstract

Predicting the bearing capacity of resistance spot welds (RSW) during vehicle crash tests has become a crucial task for the automotive industry, since the recent introduction of advanced [...]

Abstract

Friction is one of the main heat generation mechanisms in Friction Stir Welding (FSW). [...]

Abstract

This work studies computationally and experimentally the joint line remnant defects emerging in friction stir welding (FSW) due to oxide layer propagation [...]
