Application of the european SINTAP procedure to the failure analysis of a broken forklift
Nenad Gubeljak, Uwe Zerbst, Jožef Predan, Maks Oblak, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: The recently developed European flaw assessment procedure SINTAP was applied to the failure analysis of a broken fork of a forklift. Based on the service load at failure, critical crack sizes were determined at different analysis levels of the procedure. It was shown in the present case study that the failure was caused by defective design.
Keywords: structural integrity, mechanics of structures, forklift, fracture mechanics, critical crack size, failure analysis, SINTAP procedure, load bearing capacity

The re-characterisation of complex defects
Boštjan Bezenšek, John. W. Hancock, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: The re-characterisation of complex defects with re-entrant sectors has been addressed for cracks extending by fatigue, ductile tearing and cleavage. In Part I crack extension by fatigue and ductile tearing was discussed. In Part II cleavage data are presented for a family of complex defects with re-entrantsectors. Experimental tests on complex and re-characterised profilesare analysed using deterministic and probabilistic approaches. The work addresses the conservatism of re-characterisation procedures when appliedto cleavage failure on the lower shelf and in the ductile-brittle transition.
Keywords: fracture mechanics, structural elements, complex defects, recharacterisation, line-spring analysis, cleavage failure, constraint, statistical fracture mechanics, numerical analysis

The re-characterisation of complex defects
Boštjan Bezenšek, John. W. Hancock, 2004, original scientific article

Abstract: Defect assessment codes idealise complex defects as simple shapes which are amenable to analysis in a process known as re-characterisation. The present work examines the re-characterisation of complex defects which extend by fatigue, ductile tearing or cleavage. A family of representative defects were analysed numerically, while a related experimental programme investigated defect interaction and failure. Part I of the paper focuses on fatigue and ductile tearing. Part II examines cleavage. The numerical and experimental results are discussed within the context of the re-characterisation proceduresdescribed in BS 7910 (Guidance on methods for assessing the acceptability of flaws in metallic structures. London, UK: British Standard Institution; 1999 [Chapter 7] and R6/4 (Assessment of the integrity of structures containing defects. Gloucester: British Energy Generation Ltd.; 2001 [Revision 4, Chapters I and II.3]). The level of conservatism of the re-characterisation prpcedures for fatigue and ductile tearing are discussed. A possible non-conservatism of the re-characterisation for cleavage is discussed in Part II, within the framework of constraint based statistical fracture mechanics.
Keywords: fracture mechanics, structural elements, complex defects, recharacterisation, line-spring analysis, fatigue, ductile tearing, cracks, numerical analysis

Intelligent FEA-based design improvement
Marina Novak, Bojan Dolšak, 2008, original scientific article

Abstract: Structural analysis using the finite element method is an integrate part of the design process for many components. Finite element analysis is the most extensively used numerical analysis in mechanical engineering practice and is incorporated into many computer-aided design systems. The existing commercial software is very helpful when supporting realisation of the analysis process but still fails to provide adequate support during the post-processing phase. The results of analysis should be studied and decisions made regarding the designćs suitability with respect to its engineering specifications. In general, design changes are indispensable and designers need help to design them properly. The prototype of an intelligent rule-based consultative system is being developed by the authors to provide such advice when considering a description of the design structurećs critical area. This system is encoded in Prolog. It can deal with the results of prior strain-stress or thermal analysis. It presents a short list of proposed design changes that should be taken into account when improving the design.
Keywords: structural analysis, finite elment analysis, design modification, decision support, Prolog, knowledge-base systems
