    Ageing and wear in polymeric child articles2008Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Ageing and wear in polymeric child articles This report targets child use and care articles, toys and playground equipment. These products will in this report collectively be referred to as ‘child articles’. It is the authors’ experience that polymers are getting more and more frequent in child articles, probably since they are cheaper and in many ways easier to process than metals. This is not an unwanted development in itself, but the choice of material has to be carefully made since the material properties of polymers vary greatly depending on the type and amount of additives and this can not be assessed visually. In addition they degrade with time due to environmental influence. To verify the properties of a polymer the material has to be tested. One of the challenges with polymers is that they all have a limited lifetime. They degrade over time and might lose almost all their strength, leading to material failure and, in the worst case scenario, accidents. It is a fact that accidents happen due to material failure, although it is hard to trace the true cause in accident statistics. In this report the term ‘ageing’ will be used for chemical degradation of the material structure due to light and/or heat exposure and ‘wear’ refers to mechanical degradation as a result of mechanical stress and contact. The current regulation covers property changes in polymers during the lifetime of a product insufficiently, if at all. Ageing of materials is virtually non-existing in existing child article standards. During its life a product is subjected to all kinds of environmental factors which more or less lead to reduction of function of the product. All products get worn, in one way or another, when used and the surrounding environment affects the material of the product. These effects are greater or lesser depending on usage and the harshness of the surrounding environment, as well as material choice and other qualities of the product. Therefore the material and processing have to be chosen based on the knowledge of the environment in which the product will be used as well as the expected lifetime. This process is called environmental design or environmental engineering. In order to simplify the material selection process when a product is developed, it is recommended to compose a material qualification system for child articles. This system can preferably be based on existing systems from other industries. This study recommends that the requirements and test methods proposed in Chapter 5 are considered when new standards for child articles are being developed or when existing standards are being revised. It is also recommended to perform a risk analysis to identify the hazards of a product.

    Non-integrated finger protection - A background study and suggestions of requirements and test methods2008Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Young children have a natural curiosity and have not yet learned to avoid and get away from danger. It is often necessary to take measures to protect children from hazards. Parents buy protective products to avoid or decrease risks in their own and their children’s lives. Different kinds of protective products, including finger protection, are also common in nurseries, hospitals and other institutions. When a finger protection is bought and installed this gives the consumer a greater sense of security. It is vital that reality agrees with this sense. Otherwise the risk of injury may in fact increase, since a sense of security in the parent/supervisor often implies less supervision. It is therefore important to make sure that protective products on the market are safe and that they give the protection they were designed to give. This report presents a background study including injury statistics and discusses the hazards as well as methods of prevention/protection. Finger protection devices are divided into categories based on their protection method. Reasonable requirements, based on children’s characteristics and abilities, and ways to test these are discussed. Finally, suggestions of requirements and test methods are presented in the form of complete product standards for the different kinds of finger protection. ‘Finger protection’ in this report refers to protective devices designed to prevent crushing injuries between door leaf and door frame. This report deals only with non-integrated finger protection for inner doors, i.e. devices which are mounted onto an existing inner door. Currently there is no European standard regulating this kind of products.

    Load description and damage evaluation using vehicle independent driving events2015In: Procedia Engineering, ISSN 1877-7058, E-ISSN 1877-7058, Vol. 101, p. 268-276p. 268-276Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    We consider the loads that are related to steering events, and focus on the events that cause high forces on steering components. The load is simplified by keeping the extreme force value for each driving event. We define a simplified stochastic model for the load by modeling the extreme value for each driving event by a random variable. We give formulas to compute the theoretical load spectrum and the expected fatigue damage caused by the driving events. Further, in a sensitivity study we investigate how much the expected damage depends on the variability of parameters of the proposed model.

    Alkali Resistance of Textile Reinforcement for Concrete Façade Panels2014In: XXII NORDIC CONCRETE RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM, 2014, , p. 61-64, Publication no. 50Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Textile reinforced concrete has been proven to be a suitable solution for the production of thin and lightweight façade panels. Despite it being researched over the past decade, its long-term durability is not sufficiently characterized. This article presents experimental results from accelerated aging and direct tensile testing of various textile reinforcement alternatives according to ISO 10406-1. Based on the results, a large degeneration of the glass and basalt fibre bars was observed after 30 days of immersion. As for carbon fibre grids, no significant difference in ultimate tensile force was noted before and after immersion.

    Transport av farligt gods som hotobjekt2007Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    After 11 September, 2001, there has been a focus on how to reduce the risk for new terror attacks on society. In transport in general, and transport of dangerous goods (hazardous materials) in particular, a number of steps have been taken to reduce the risks for antagonistic attacks. One such step was to introduce a requirement for all carriers of high-consequence dangerous goods to implement a security plan for the transport. To establish the usefulness and relevance of today’s regulations there is a need to make a more thorough analysis. Due to the fact that so far very few antagonistic attacks, deriving from the transport of dangerous goods, have been launched, other material for analyzing is needed. Even if hazardous materials have been involved in most attacks, the transport itself is rarely used as a tool for the attack. Our way to facilitate the analysis was to create twelve different scenarios, where a more or less likely chain of events, leading to an antagonistic attack, was described. The scenarios were written in an anecdotic or fiction-like manner. All scenarios were analyzed based on three main characteristics: psychological impact, resources needed and the possibility of counteractions to the threat. Then it was possible to discuss the effectiveness of the regulations, which address security in dangerous goods transport. It was concluded that some areas are of great interest for reducing risks related to antagonistic threats. First, the development of security plans and the possible audit of security plans. Second, consideration of selective routing for transports of dangerous goods (in a dynamic perspective, i.e. based on the currently existing risks). And third, the management of information and the use of telematics in the transport of dangerous goods. The report is included in a research project, SecureFlow’05, being carried out with the University College of Borås as lead partner and with financial support from the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems VINNOVA.

    Three HCF models for strain fatigue life of welded pipes in austenitic stainless steel2015In: Procedia Engineering, ISSN 1877-7058, E-ISSN 1877-7058, Vol. 101, p. 476-484p. 476-484Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Fatigue bending tests have been performed on welded pipes made from an austenitic stainless steel. Four types of loading were used: 1) constant amplitude, 2) a load expected at pressure vessel environment, 3) a Gaussian load, and 4) a specially constructed two-level block load. The twenty-eight test results are evaluated using three different models: 1) the classical Basquin equation neglecting the fatigue limit, 2) the ASME model with a fatigue limit, and 3) a model with continuously decreasing fatigue limit. No significant differences between the three models were found. Predictions based on constant amplitude results appear to be non-conservative.

    Laboratory study to determine the critical moisture level for mould growth on building materials2012In: International Biodeterioration & Biodegradation, Vol. 73, no 23, p. 23-32Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The susceptibility of building materials to mould growth varies. Some are tolerant to high relative humidity in the ambient air without mould growth occurring, while others are less tolerant, and mould can grow in relative humidity as low as 75%. Within a building, constructions are exposed to different temperatures and relative humidities. To minimise the risk of microbial growth, building materials should be chosen that are tolerant to the expected conditions. In this study, the critical moisture levels for ten building materials with a range of expected critical moisture levels (wood-based materials, gypsum boards and inorganic boards) were evaluated. Samples of the building materials were inoculated with spores from six species of mould fungi (Eurotium herbariorum, Aspergillus versicolor, Penicillium chrysogenum, Aureobasidium pullulans, Cladosporium sphaerospermum, Stachybotrys chartarum) and incubated in test cabinets at specified temperature (10 _x0001_C and 22 _x0001_C) and relative humidity conditions (75e95%); growth of mould was analysed weekly for at least 12 weeks. One of the conclusions is that two similar building materials or products may have considerably different resistance to mould growth, and so the results from one type of building material cannot be applied to the other. Also, in order to compare results from different tests, it is important to use the same test method. It is also important to state the temperature at which the critical moisture level applies and how long the material is exposed to the temperature and relative humidity conditions during the test.

    Optimal experimental design for estimating crack closure features2004In: International Journal of Fatigue, Vol. 26, no 7, p. 705-716Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Recently, a new method for determining crack closure properties of a material has been presented. the method is convenient for engineering purpose, since it does not include any observations of the closure, but only uses results from fatigue life tests. In this paper we introduce the concept of optimal experimental design and use it for finding an optimal test design for the closure determining method. The resulting design is shown to give the same precision as the design used in previous investigations using only 60% of teh number of tests. A new series of fatigue tests was made according to the new design and the closure model parameters were estimated.

    Influence of mechanical and probabilistic models on the reliability estimates of fibre-reinforced cross-ply laminates2014In: Structural Safety, Vol. 51, p. 35-46Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Numerous methodologies for estimating the reliability of fibre-reinforced plastics have been published in the past few decades. Several of these methodologies use different mechanical and probabilistic models, each one based on a number of assumptions and approximations. The objective of this study is to assess common assumptions and approximations made on mechanical and probabilistic models used in reliability analyses of fibre-reinforced plastic laminates. The assessment consists of two parts: a theoretical overview of the models and their justification, and an investigation of the quantitative influence of the models on the reliability estimates of a group of fibre-reinforced cross-ply laminates. The reliability estimates are calculated through Monte Carlo simulations using different mechanical and probabilistic models. This study concludes that both mechanical and probabilistic models can significantly influence the reliabilityestimations. For the mechanical models, the factor with the greatest influence is the definition and modelling of matrix cracking. While, for the probabilistic models, the choice of probability distribution for modelling ply property variability has the greatest influence.

    Minskning av risken för skador på gasledningar genom djupförläggning och användandet av grävskydd (Reducing the risks for gas pipe damages through deep digging and the use of protective plates)2013Report (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    This report concerns part 2 of a project with the aim to propose protective measures for cables and pipelines for bio and natural gas. Part 1 was previously reported in SGC Rapport 2011:239. The wish is to be able to increase the pressure in the distribution networks from 4 to 10 bar without having to retain the safety distances valid for 80 bar pipelines. Polymer, concrete and steel protective plates, and deep digging are the physical measures considered. In part 1 a survey was made, in part by an enquiry, of the frequency, causes and consequences of incidents where pipelines were hit by excavators. Further, the rules and standards were investigated in countries where 7–10 bar pipelines are already in service. Here, in part 2 the perspective was widened to include, apart from gas pipelines, also all kinds of buried pipelines and cables. Now a visit to a supplier in France is reported, as well as an vestigation of costs and environmental impacts of the different protective measures, and an analysis of the strength of protective plates and of how they can best be positioned in the ground in relationship to the pipeline. The main result from the study visit to France was that new regulations mean that both new and existing pipelines have to be satisfactorily protected. For the physical point of view these plastic protective plates play an important part, and there are commercially available building systems of plates for which the strength and durability have been verified by tests. In the full scale experiments done in, e.g., France, it can be concluded that the plastic (HDPE) plates can wit stand high loads which are applied by use of a bucket with teeth mounted on an excavator. In some cases penetration of teeth occurs, but the plates will in that case either come up and alert the operator or stay in the ground and still protect the buried cable or pipeline. Concrete plate can also break, but the pieces are held together by the steel reinforcement. The analysis of costs and environmental impacts shows that plastic plates are preferred with regard to both aspects. In addition they have a very good signalling effect being produced in a bright yellow colour. Also deep digging can be effective taking into account costs and environmental aspects, but the risk reduction will according to literature be less than for the plates. Plastic plates are shown, in the literature surveyed, by full scale experiments to have at least as good, and sufficient, resistance to impact as concrete ones. This is verified by in-house numerical analyses. The finite element analyses show that the plastic plates deforms but do not break. The arching action of the backfill protects the buried pipe, and the stresses become only somewhat higher when using plastic plates instead of using stiff plates of steel or concrete. There may be unfavourable cases when the plastic plates cannot by themself stop forces and stresses passing down through soil layers acting on the buried pipe.
