Abstract This paper presents experimental investigation and numerical modeling of the effect of compressive residual stress on the corrosion fatigue life of a low carbon steel. A fatigue life test methodology based on double notched tensile test specimens is proposed. A new plasticity model is proposed for accurate simulation of compressive residual stress and calibrated to experimental stress-strain curves obtained for low carbon steel. The proposed model is implemented as a user-material in th...

Abstract An experimental investigation of the effect of mean stress on the fatigue life and corrosion fatigue life of cylindrical specimens is presented. Force controlled constant amplitude axial fatigue tests in the regime of 105 to 107 cycles were conducted for two different environments: in air (without corrosion) and in-situ in a corrosive environment, 0.824% NaCl aqueous solution flow. The test results are assessed with respect to various standard models of mean stress influence on fatigue....

Abstract Small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) play an important role in the economy of many countries, crucial in terms of social inclusion, local employment and innovation. In the developed world, such as the European Union, around 99 percent of economic activities can be traced back to SMEs, accounting for almost 66 percent of all jobs in the private sector. A similar scenario can be seen in the developing world where SMEs account for over 90 percent of all enterprises. In Malaysia, SMEs ...

The effects of war in Iraq are coupled with the susceptibility to natural hazards, which has exposed the people of Iraq to multiple man-made disasters. Despite the fact that terrorists did not have a hold on any part of Iraq before the US invasion, it is generally believed that Iraq contains many terrorists and terrorist organisations. As a result, violence in Iraq has become normalised, ranging from the Iraqi and US military assaults and sectarian militias, threat of suicide bombings, to violen...

Growing trend of disaster-induced displacements and resettlements is alarming the world to address the consequences to retain the stability of the concerned countries. In order to reduce the causes and consequences of displacements, governments and other concerned entities involve in the process of resettlement in different scales. However, settlers complain of the large-scale resettlement schemes for their inability to meet long-term expectations. Adaptability of the built environment is viewed...

Sri Lanka experiences regular natural hazard-related disasters: flooding, landslides, cyclones and droughts. These events cause devastating effects in terms of human casualties, disturbing settlements and damaging properties. Besides human casualties, one of the most visible and striking effects of these disasters is the destruction of houses: as a result, there is a requirement for post-disaster housing reconstruction. Post-disaster housing delivery can be either assistance in rebuilding origin...

Abstract The policies guiding the Nigerian environment, oil and gas production is enormous. Nigeria is a signatory to innumerable international agreements and conventions related to environmental sustainability, climate change, health and safety of its citizens and protection of marine waters, fishes and livelihood structures. The regulations are aimed to reduce the dangers that emanates from industrial activities and safeguard the surroundings and wellbeing. This paper is a review of some instr...

Abstract The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is vulnerable to natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods, and tsunamis. Emergency response and incident command model have been implemented to help mitigate against these hazards in various part of the world. More recently, the Gold, Silver, and Bronze (GSB) model of incident command has been adopted in the UAE to integrate joint efforts, to control over emergency response and incident management at the local, regional and the national levels. The GS...

In today’s interconnected world, disruptions arising from one party in a supply chain network could cause disruptions to other parties in the chain. Indeed, recent evidence suggests that supply chain disruptions had caused a wide-scale impact to the construction industry in various developing countries including the Malaysian construction industry, with increasing report on project performance deficiencies such as cost and time overruns of severe magnitudes. Although risk management is widely pr...
