Structural and residual strength analysis of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints. (2019)
Thesis
PRATHURU, A. 2019. Structural and residual strength analysis of metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints. Robert Gordon University [online], PhD thesis. Available from: https://openair.rgu.ac.uk

The aim of this study is to propose a new simulation/experimental methodology to assess the residual strength of defective adhesive bonds. This incorporates defect detection in adhesive bonds and quantification of the effect of these defects on the a...

Neutron diffraction residual strain measurements of molybdenum carbide-based solid oxide fuel cell anode layers with metal oxides on Hastelloy X. (2017)
Journal Article
FAISAL, N.H., AHMED, R., PRATHURU, A.K., KATIKANENI, S.P., GOOSEN, M.F.A. and ZHANG, S-Y. 2018. Neutron diffraction residual strain measurements of molybdenum carbide-based solid oxide fuel cell anode layers with metal oxides on Hastelloy X. Experimental mechanics [online], 58(4), pages 585-603. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s11340-017-0298-7

Thermal spray deposition processes impart residual stress in layered Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) materials and hence influence the durability and efficiency of the cell. The current study which is the first of its kind, reports results on using a n...

Cyclic nanoindentation and nano-impact fatigue mechanisms of functionally graded TiN/TiNi film. (2017)
Journal Article
FAISAL, N.H., PRATHURU, A.K., GOEL, S., AHMED, R., DROUBI, M.G., BEAKE, B.D. and FU, Y.Q. 2017. Cyclic nanoindentation and nano-impact fatigue mechanisms of functionally graded TiN/TiNi film. Shape memory and superelasticity [online], 3(2), pages 149-167. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1007/s40830-017-0099-y

The mechanisms of nanoscale fatigue of functionally graded TiN/TiNi films have been studied using multiple-loading cycle nanoindentation and nano-impact tests. The functionally graded films were sputter-deposited onto silicon substrates, in which the...

Acoustic emission method to study fracture (Mode-I, II) and residual strength characteristics in composite-to-metal and metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints. (2017)
Journal Article
DROUBI, M.G., STUART, A., MOWAT, J., NOBLE, C., PRATHURU, A.K. and FAISAL, N.H. 2017. Acoustic emission method to study fracture (Mode-I, II) and residual strength characteristics in composite-to-metal and metal-to-metal adhesively bonded joints. Journal of adhesion [online], 94(5), pages 347-386. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1080/00218464.2017.1278696

Failure behaviour of two types of adhesively bonded joints (composite-to-metal, metal-to-metal) has been studied under failure modes (Mode I: double cantilever beam (DCB) and Mode II: three-point end notch flexures (3-ENF)) using acoustic emission (A...

An improved Vickers indentation fracture toughness model to assess the quality of thermally sprayed coatings. (2014)
Journal Article
FAISAL, N.H., AHMED, R., PRATHURU, A.K., SPENCE, S., HOSSAIN, M. and STEEL, J.A. 2014. An improved Vickers indentation fracture toughness model to assess the quality of thermally sprayed coatings. Engineering fracture mechanics [online], 128, pages 189-204. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.engfracmech.2014.07.015

This study presents an improved approach to the quality assessment of thermally sprayed coatings. Measurements were carried out on five different coatings. Since it is the overall extent of surface cracking during Vickers indentation that is indicati...
