Influence of stress field of expanding and contracting plate shaped precipitate on hydride embrittlement of Zr-alloys
The stress fields of expanding (precipitation) and contracting (dissolution) hydride plates were computed by finite element method using Zr-H solid solution and hydride properties at 25, 200 and 400Expand

Size-independent fracture energy in plain concrete beams using tri-linear model
The boundary effect or the size effect on the fracture properties of concrete has been studied assuming a bi-linear model for the distribution of local fracture energy concept. Boundary effect isExpand
