Computational simulation of the relaxation of local stresses due to foreign object damage under cyclic loading
In this study, the phenomenon of residual stress relaxation from foreign object damage (FOD) is numerically simulated using a hybrid explicit¿implicit finite-element method. The effects of cycle fatigue loadings on stress ...
A preliminary design methodology for fatigue life prediction of polymer composites for tidal turbine blades
Tidal turbine blades experience significant fatigue cycles during operation and it is expected that fatigue strength will be a major consideration in their design. Glass fibre reinforced polymers are a candidate low-cost ...
