    This article discusses the effects of crack blunting in liquid metal environments on K-IEAC due to the rising load test. There are two techniques frequently employed in the determination of K-IEAC, namely the constant load ...
  • Fernandes, PJL; Jones, DRH (Butterworth-Heinemann Ltd, 1995-10)
    Liquid-metal-induced embrittlement (LMIE) refers to the loss of ductility in normally ductile metals and alloys when stressed while in contact with a liquid metal. In this study, the fatigue crack growth behaviour of brass ...
  • Fernandes, PJL; Jones, DRH (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1997-09)
    Liquid-metal-induced embrittlement under tensile test conditions is identified by the existence of a characteristic ductility trough. In this study, the effect of molten gallium on the behaviour of two brass alloys with ...
  • Fernandes, PJL (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1998-03)
    Examination of a fifth wheel coupling which had failed in service showed that it had been modified and that the operating handle had been moved from its original design position. This modification completely eliminated the ...
  • Fernandes, PJL; Jones, DRH (Pergamon-Elsevier Science LTD, 1996-12)
    One of the most intriguing features of liquid metal induced embrittlement (LMIE) is the observation that some liquid metal-solid metal couples are susceptible to embrittlement, while others appear to be immune. This is ...
  • Fernandes, PJL; McDuling, GA (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1997-06)
    Surface contact fatigue is the most common cause of gear failure. It results in damage to contacting surfaces which can significantly reduce the load-carrying capacity of components, and may ultimately lead to complete ...
  • Fernandes, PJL (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1996-09)
    A gear is a machine element designed to transmit force and motion from one mechanical unit to another. The design and function of gears are usually closely associated, since gears are designed for a specific function. ...
  • Fernandes, PJL (Peramon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1998-03)
    This article discusses the outcome of an investigation of the failure of copper tubes from cold water distribution system carrying potable water in a shopping centre. Samples of copper tubes from a cold water distribution ...
