EWI principal engineers Yu-Ping Yang and Bill Mohr were published in the November issue of the Journal of Materials Engineering & Technology.
In “Finite Element Creep-Fatigue Analysis of a Welded Furnace Roll for Identifying Failure Root,” the authors focus on preventing the failure of engineering components operating under high temperature and cyclic loading. Finite element analyses, including a heat transfer analysis and a creep-fatigue analysis, was conducted to model the cyclic thermal and mechanical process of a furnace roll in a continuous hot-dip coating line. The results are discussed in the article.
