  Information about the dynamic loading of a steel structure is important for its static design as well as for an assessment of its fatigue life. In the case of a hydraulic static-pile-pressing machine, these loads are mainly caused by vibrations and load sway, which occurs as a result of the slewing motion ...  Read More

Volume 6, Issue 1 , December 2016, , Pages 1-9


  The aim of the study was to find the optimum combination of materials and thicknesses to provide a tough, damage resistant multi-layer system with numerical methods to restore the damaged teeth. Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM) was used to assess the critical loads for the onset of damage modes ...  Read More
