  • Fracture toughness to understand stretch-flangeability and edge cracking resistance in AHSS 

    Casellas Padró, Daniel; Lara, Antoni; Frómeta Gutiérrez, David; Gutierrez Castillo, David; Molas Busquets, Sílvia; Pérez Caro, Lluís; Rehrl, Johannes; Suppan, Clemens (2016-10-20)
    Article
    Open Access
    The edge fracture is considered as a high risk for automotive parts, especially for parts made of advanced high strength steels (AHSS). The limited ductility of AHSS makes them more sensitive to the edge damage. The ...

    In press hardened steels, fatigue behaviour is very sensitive to surface defects or irregularities, either intrinsic or introduced during trimming operations. This work addresses the understanding and prediction of fatigue ...
  • Destoning the Moatize coal seam, Mozambique, by dry jigging 

    Hoffmann Sampaio, Carlos; Ambrós, Weslei Monteiro; Cazacliu, Bogdan G.; Oliva Moncunill, Josep; Selemane José, David; Miltzarek, Gérson L.; Schadach de Brum, Irineu Antônio; Petter, Carlos Otávio; Zanetti Fernandes, Eunírio; Silva Oliveira, Luis Felipe (2020-08-31)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper proposes pre-beneficiation studies by air jigs of the coal layers from a Moatize coal deposit. Pre-beneficiation, also called destoning, removes tailings before the beneficiation plant. The air jigs operate in ...
  • Dynamic buffer sizing and pacing as enablers of 5G low-latency services 

    Irazabal Bengoa, Mikel; López Aguilera, M. Elena; Seyfettin Demirkol, Ilker; Nikaein, Navid (2020-08-17)
    Article
    Open Access
    3GPP standards organization is performing an impressive effort trying to reach sub-millisecond latencies for 5G. However, such efforts may become fruitless if exogenously generated delays at transport layer are not considered. ...
