A 5-Parameter Isothermal Creep Model For Polymeric Liners

Güner, Doğukan

Polymeric materials are commonly used as load-carrying components in different structural applications due to the ease of manufacture, installation and long lifetime properties. In civil and mining engineering applications, fast-setting thin polymeric liners are in demand as areal support elements in underground openings. The stability of the openings is maintained by polymeric liners that might sustain the constant loads due to the presence of wedge blocks. Therefore, their time-dependent mechanical response requires a better understanding. There is limited research conducted on the creep modelling of polymeric liners. In this basis, this research aims to construct a new isothermal general creep behaviour model for polymeric support liners. 1-day cured creep tests results of polymeric liner were used to derive a new creep model with a combination of both Norton-Bailey and Kelvin creep models. The proposed model was also compared to the widely used creep models in literature. Since the acting stress on the liner depends on the block weight in field applications and the block weights are variable, a general creep model is developed to simulate the field behaviour of the liner under a wide range of constant stress levels. The proposed general model provides representative equations with comparably lower standard errors and this model might be used as an input for future numerical model studies in this field.

Polymer-based products are widely used as load-carrying components in different structural applications due to the ease of manufacture, installation, and long lifetime properties. In mining and tunnelling industry, fast-setting, thin polymer-based products are in demand as an underground support liner. Researchers have agreed that the time-dependent material properties of underground support liners have significance for short to long term applications. Although some creep tests were performed in literature,...

Ferroelectric materials are used in different applications because of their superior electrical and dielectric properties. Ferroelectric materials are polarized when an electrical field is applied to the material. This spontaneous polarization continues even if an electrical field is removed. BST (Barium Strontium Titanate) is one of the attractive ferroelectric materials which has a high dielectric constant and low dielectric loss tangent (tanδ). High dielectric constant and low loss tangent are necessary ...
A new formulation for the analysis of bonded elastic layers
Pınarbaşı, Seval; Akyüz, Uğurhan; Department of Civil Engineering (2007)
Elastic layers bonded to reinforcing sheets are widely used in many engineering applications, e.g., as elastic foundations to machinery, as seismic isolators to structures, etc. Because of its practical importance, the behavior of bonded elastic layers under some basic deformation modes (e.g., compression, bending and shear modes) has attracted the attention of many researchers. However, the analytical works available in literature involve, with the object of obtaining design formulas, many simplifying assu...
An Empirical Approach to Analyze Creep Rupture Behavior of P91 Steel
Aslam, Muhammad Junaid; Gür, Cemil Hakan (2021-05-01)
P91 steel has been a highly researched material because of its applicability for high-temperature applications. Considerable efforts have been made to produce experimental creep data and develop models for creep life prediction. As creep tests are expensive and difficult to conduct, it is vital to develop authenticated empirical methods from experimental results that can be utilized for better understanding of creep behavior and can be incorporated into computational models for reliable prediction of creep ...
