A brief note on monotonic and fatigue fracture events investigation of thin-walled tubular austenitic steel specimens via fracture surface topography analysis (FRASTA)Publication
The main objective of this short communication is to show the fracture progression in each loading case and complement knowledge about fracture mechanisms underpinning the tensile and fatigue performance of thin-walled tubes. For this purpose, the fracture surface topography analysis (FRASTA) method was used in the thin-walled tubular austenitic stainless-steel specimens. Two cases were analyzed: monotonic tension, and uniaxial...
The unusual premature failure of a heavy-duty truck engine crankshaft has been the subject of a rigorous study, and this manuscript describes it in detail. The failure was happened to begin with the growth of the crack from the surface defects, in the form of the clusters of non-metallic inclusions, in the lubrication hole zone of the first main journal, which was the stress concentration zone. A series of experiments including...
Fatigue fracture surface metrology of thin-walled tubular austenitic steel specimens after asynchronous loadingsPublication
This paper aims to study the effect of asynchronous axial-torsional strain-controlled loading histories on fracture surface behavior of thin-walled tubular X5CrNi18-10 (304/304L) austenitic steel specimens. Tests under pure axial loading and pure torsional loading are also conducted to better segregate the effect of multiaxiality. The fractures surface topographies were examined through the profiles over the entire surface with...
Fracture surface topography investigation and fatigue life assessment of notched austenitic steel specimensPublication
The objectives of this study were to investigate the fracture surface topography of X8CrNiS18-9 austenitic stainless-steel specimens for different loadings and notch radii and to supplement the knowledge about the fracture mechanisms for fatigue performance. Cases with three different values of the notch radius ρ and the stress amplitude σa were analysed. The fracture topographies were quantified by the areas over their entire...
This paper presents an analysis of the combined thrust radial bearing of a submarine propulsion shaft. The lubrication system of the bearing is based on a fixed ring. The efficiency of the lubrication system depends on the shaft speed and temperature, which affects oil viscosity. In turn, the thrust bearing load also depends on the rotational speed of the shaft, because as the speed increases, the drag of the ship increases simultaneously,...
The slurry erosion tests of ferritic X10CrAlSi18 steel were carried out using a slurry pot device. In order to investigate the erosion process, two series of tests were performed: first one with a constant impact velocity of 5 m/s, 7 m/s and 9 m/s and the second one, during which the impact velocity was changed after every exposure. During each test, an influence of test conditions on volume loss, surface hardness and roughness...
Failures and a concept of corrosion protection system for spiral classifiers at KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Ore Concentration PlantPublication
The Ore Concentration Plant, where the process of flotation is carried out as well as the final production of copper concentrate, plays a key role in the entire production line of KGHM Polska Miedź S.A. Majority of operations related to the run-of-mine preparation to copper flotation enrichment are carried out in a water environment. The maintaining of production process continuity requires to pursue minimisation of many production...
The paper includes a case study of modelling a real historic church using the finite element method (FEM) based on laser scans of its geometry. The main goal of the study was the analysis of the causes of cracking and crushing of masonry walls. An FEM model of the structure has been defined in ABAQUS. A non-linear dynamic explicit analysis with material model including damage plasticity has been performed. A homogenization procedure...
The impulse mode of operation and the supply of various types of fuels causes frequent failures even in the heavy duty gas turbines. The paper presents the ravages of second rotor stage failure in a gas turbine. The excessive thermal elongation rise caused by fuel change was indicated as the main cause. We applied nonlinear numerical analysis, preceded by thermodynamic calculations of the turbine and visual inspection of the effects...
Analysis of the possibility of creep damage detection in T24 heat resistant steel with the help of magnetic nondestestructive testing methodsPublication
The paper presents the result of an analysis of applicability of various electromagnetic methods of nondestructive evaluation for creep damage detection in a novel heat resistant steel - T24 grade. Two sample sets, cut out from membrane wall tubes, were investigated – the as-delivered one and another exploited for 36,000 h in a power plant. There are described results of magnetic hysteresis loops B(H), Barkhausen noise (BN) and...
Road restraint systems, including safety barriers, are one of the means used to improve road safety. Currently, they can be allowed to general use after passing the specific crash tests. However, it is always important and desirable to evaluate their performance under various realistic conditions, which can happen on the roads. In this study, the behaviour of the cable barrier system in impact conditions different than assumed...
Damage to lower parts of viaducts caused by impact from under-passing high vehicles is relatively frequent. One such incident, in which a viaduct was damaged by the impact from a truck with an improperly assembled hydraulic crane, is considered in this work. The analysis is based on a detailed object damage evaluation, 3D laser scanning, and numerical simulations. The aim of the study is to accurately model the vehicle impact into...
The purpose of this investigation was to conduct the failure analysis of 501 AISI furnace tubes places before distillation column in fractional distillation unit. The investigated furnace tubes were planned to work for ten years however after just two years of exploitation <30% of the material left. The observed corrosion process had the intense and complex character. The well-adhered shiny black deposits and deep, round pits were...
Application of linear buckling sensitivity analysis to economic design of cylindrical steel silos composed of corrugated sheets and columnsPublication
The paper deals with global stability of steel cylindrical silos composed of corrugated walls and vertical columns with loads imposed by a bulk solid following Eurocode 1. The optimum silo design with respect to the steel weight was based on a sensitivity analysis method. The changes of silo column profiles at each design step were performed by means of influence lines for the buckling load factor due to the unit column bending...

Stability of cylindrical steel silos composed of corrugated sheets and columns based on FE analyses versus Eurocode 3 approachPublication
Comprehensive static and dynamic 3D stability finite element analyses of a cylindrical steel silo composed of corrugated sheets and open thin-walled vertical stiffener profiles were carried out by taking the geometric and material non-linearity into account. The silowas subjected to axisymmetric and non-axisymmetric loads imposed by a bulk solid following Eurocode 1. Theoretical and measured initial geometric imperfections were...
Calculations of notch stress factor of a thin-walled spreader bracket fillet weld with the use of a local stress approachPublication
Presence of geometric notches in welded joints causes concentration of strains and stresses, therefore reducing fatigue strength of such joints. This article presents an analysis of stress concentrations in a fillet weld of a spreader mounting bracket on a small sailing yacht. The aim of this article is to direct the attention of designers, manufacturers and regulatory bodies to issues of fatigue cracks that form in brackets fastening...
W pracy przedstawiono wyniki ekspertyzy zbiornika magazynowego na ciepłą wodę do produkcji piwa w browarze. Zbiornik uległ przyśpieszonym procesom korozyjnym, które doprowadziły do jego perforacji. Podczas eksploatacji zbiornika wystąpił proces korozji wżerowej oraz pękania korozyjnego. Przyśpieszone procesy korozyjne zbiornika związane były z wysoką zawartością jonów chlorkowych w wodzie oraz statycznymi naprężeniami mechanicznymi....
