PILOT ANALYSIS OF CHEVRON NOTCH LIGAMENT AREA FOR APPLICATION\nON QUASI-BRITTLE MATERIALS
Seitl, Stanislav ; Růžička, P. ; Miarka, P. ; Sobek, J.
Specimens for the bending tests with the chevron notch are standardized for the\nevaluation of the fracture toughness of various materials. The main advantage of this test\nset-up is that no sharp pre-crack has to be introduced, because a sharp crack is formed\nduring loading at the beginning of the test. Furthermore, no crack length measurement is\nrequired, and a stable crack growth can be reached due to geometry of the notch. In this\ncontribution a difference of the ligament area of the specimens with the straight through\nnotch and the chevron notch was investigated
DISPLACEMENT FIELD ANALYSIS IN WEDGE SPLITTING TEST\nSPECIMEN BY ODM METHOD
Seitl, S. ; Miarka, P. ; Růžička, V. ; Malíková, Lucie ; Merta, I.
Multi-parameter fracture mechanics is nowadays quite extensively applied when cracked\nstructures/specimens are investigated. The reason is that it has been shown that it can be\nhelpful and bring more accurate results when fracture processes happen in a larger\nregion around the crack tip, what can be typical for material like concrete or other\nmaterials with quasi-brittle behaviour. Various relative crack length configurations have\nbeen chosen in order to investigate the importance of the higher-order terms of the\nWilliams power expansion on the crack-tip stress field distribution in Wedge splitting\ntest specimen. The higher-order terms are calculated by means of the over-deterministic\nmethod from displacements of nodes around the crack tip obtained by a finite element\nanalysis in different radial distances from the crack tip. The effect of the constraint level\nis investigated. Although the third and higher terms of the Williams series are very often\nneglected, their influence on the opening stress values is investigated.
Comparison of calibration functions for short edge cracks under selected loads
Seitl, Stanislav ; Miarka, Petr ; Malíková, Lucie ; Krejsa, M.
Attention to the fatigue cracks in steel structures and bridges has been paid for long time. In spite to efforts to eliminate the creation and propagation of fatigue cracks throughout the designed service life, cracks are still revealed during inspections. Note, that depending on location of initial crack, the crack may propagate from the edge or from the surface. The theoretical model of fatigue crack progression is based on linear fracture mechanics. Steel specimens are subjected to various load (tension, three- and four-point bending, pure bending etc.). The calibration functions for short edge cracks are compared for various load and the discrepancies are discussed.
A numerical investigation of the stress intensity factor for a bent chevron notched specimen: Comparison of 2D and 3D solutions
Seitl, Stanislav ; Miarka, Petr ; Sobek, J. ; Klusák, Jan
In the contribution, normalized stress intensity factors for three- and four-point bending specimens with a chevron notch is introduced by varying the chevron notch angle and length. The three- and two-dimensional models of bent chevron notched specimens in the software ANSYS were prepared by using possible symmetrical conditions. The 2D model was used with variable thicknesses of the layers representing the characteristic shape of the chevron notch (with the plane stress boundary condition). The numerically obtained results from the 2D and 3D solutions are compared with data from literature.
Effect of rivet holes on calibration curves for edge cracks under various loading types in steel bridge structure
Seitl, Stanislav ; Miarka, Petr ; Kala, Z. ; Klusák, Jan
Attention has been paid to fatigue cracks in steel structures and bridges for a long time. In spite of efforts to eliminate the creation and propagation of fatigue cracks throughout the designed service life, cracks are still revealed during inspections. There is some limitation of crack sizes which are detectable on structure (from 2 up to 10 mm). Note that depending on the location of the initial crack, the crack may dominantly propagate from the edge or from the surface. The theoretical model of fatigue crack progress is based on linear elastic fracture mechanics. Steel specimens are subjected to various load types (tension, three- and four-point bending, pure bending etc.). The calibration functions for short edge cracks that are near the hole for a rivet or bolt are compared for various loads and the discrepancies are discussed.
Numerical study of thin HPC overlay for orthotropic bridge deck
Miarka, Petr ; Šimonová, Hana (referee) ; Novák, Drahomír (referee) ; Seitl, Stanislav (advisor)
This Master Thesis compares three various concrete materials for stiffening orthotropic bridge deck plate and investigates stress reducing factors in selected weld joints. The thesis investigates the standard load situation and also overloaded situation. A parameter study with different material inputs has been done to see how it affects stress in weld joints.
Reinforced concrete staircase of apartment house - alternatives of structural design with reduction of footfall sound propagation
Miarka, Petr ; Bažant, Zdeněk (referee) ; Perla, Jan (advisor)
Bachelor thesis deals with three options of soundproofing isolation of three different structural design variants of reinforced concrete stairscase in an apartment building (ie, precasted, semi-monolithic and monolithic). It uses industrially produced elements reducing the spread of footfall sound in residential areas from different producers available on the Czech market. Design of load carrying construction is done by first limit state desing. It also makes lists of producers and their products.
