A corner joint was investigated using finite element method. Since the geometry along the width of the corner joint is uniform and load does not change in that direction, the problem was assumed to be plane strain. In addition, it was assumed that the adherents (aluminum) and adhesive (epoxy resin) had linear properties. The joint was analysed under one(More)
The analysis results of flow induced stress field in a Francis turbine runner blade is presented. The geometrical model was reduced to one blade, due to the periodical symmetry of the runner. The pressure field obtained from computational fluid dynamics (CFD) was applied as a mechanical load on the blade surface in the structural finite element analysis(More)
