Abstract [en]

Indenters in the slip planes of a bolted lap joint increase its load bearing capacity. In an experimental study, conducted at the Luleå University of Technology, Sweden, a part of the European R&D project PROLIFE, RFCS 2015-00025, indenters between two plates a) were loaded in compression and b) shear loaded in a lap joint. The load to press a 2.5 mm diameter stainless steel indenter 2.3 mm into the plates was 11 kN and the effective friction of the joint was improved. In a reference test with two shear planes and plain as rolled plates, no indenters and an M30 bolt pre-loaded to 320 kN, the joint slip resistance force was 54.5 kN and the effective friction coefficient μeff=0.09. For an identical arrangement but with 29 indenters per shear plane, the slip resistance was close to 250 kN and μeff was increased to 0.40, at the current Eurocode acceptable joint slip of 0.15 mm.

Abstract [en]

In this work, the finite element method is employed to gain an understanding of the behaviour of a cracked bridge roller bearing in service. The cracked roller is considered as an edge-cracked disk (two-dimensional plane strain system) subjected to a radial compressive line load. The crack parameters KI and KII are calculated for the relevant load configuration and angle of disk rotation. The calculated data are also used to check the accuracy of approximate SIF solutions reported earlier [1] and [2]. For plain Mode I loading very good agreement is found between the obtained results and data presented in Schindler and Morf (1994).

Abstract [en]

The paper is aimed at finding the likely failure mechanism of a bridge roller bearing made of high strength martensitic stainless steel. Spectroscopy and finite element stress analysis of the roller indicated that an initial radial surface crack, found at an end face of the roller and close to the contact region, was induced by stress corrosion cracking (SCC). The initial crack subsequently changed shape and increased in size under growth through fatigue and finally formed a quarter-circle radial crack centred on the end face corner of the roller. Numerically computed stress intensity factors for the final crack showed that crack loading was predominantly in Mode II. For a crack size as observed on the fracture surface, the maximum service load, as specified by the manufacturer, enhanced by a certain roller bearing misalignment effect, was sufficient for failure through fracture.

Abstract [en]

With the innovation of elastomeric bearings in the mid-1950s steel bearings lost their interest and significance both in research and development and subsequently even in application. Steel bearings were gradually abandoned in bridges, followed by the technical literature and design standards. However, a great number of steel bearings remain today in service world-wide and will pose their particular challenges in the future. To the author’s knowledge, just in Sweden, high strength stainless steel bearings still exist in no less than some 650 bridges. In recent years, a large number of such bearings have failed with an alarmingly high frequency in Sweden during a period of six to twenty years after installation making them a serious maintenance cost issue.

After a brief summary of the history of high strength stainless steel bearings, the paper reviews service experience of such bearings in Sweden and elsewhere. Accompanying finite element analyses were performed in order to gain insight into the likely failure mechanism. Finally, this comprehensive review leads to a conclusion that identifies the causes of the failures occurred and makes some recommendations.

Although previous investigations of the stainless steel bearings have not been able to clearly identify the cause(s) of the failures occurred, it is found that the failures primarily occurred due to initiation of cracks through stress corrosion cracking followed by fatigue crack growth requiring a certain stress range and a sufficiently large number of cycles until final failure ensued through sudden and instable fracture after fatigue growth to a critical crack size.

Abstract [en]

The stress intensity factor and the J-integral have been derived analytically and numerically for a modified three-point bend specimen with partly tapered sides, for various crack lengths, taper and specimen cross-section proportions, in order to allow full-thickness testing of tapered samples, common in older steel structures, to obtain a fair effective fracture toughness value for a through thickness crack in inhomogeneous materials. The stress intensity factor is obtained with the approximate analytical method of Kienzler and Herrmann, based on the concept of material forces. The J-integral is calculated numerically with a 3D finite element model for a linear elastic material and an elastic ideal-plastic material. A simple single specimen fracture toughness evaluation procedure is proposed. It is found that the effect of taper in the range encountered in practice is small, of the order of a few percent.
