    • An ad-hoc fretting wear tribotester design for thin steel wires 

      Llavori Osa, Iñigo; Zabala Eguren, Alaitz; Tato Vega, Wilson; Aginagalde Lopez, Andrea; Gómez Rodríguez, Xabier (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Steel wire ropes experience fretting wear damage when the rope runs over a sheave promoting an oscillatory motion between the wires. Consequently, wear scars appear between the contacting wires leading to an ...
    • Influence of Surface Finish and Porosity on the Fatigue behaviour of A356 Aluminium Casting Alloy 

      Hidalgo Coca, Raquel; Esnaola Ramos, Jon Ander; Llavori Osa, Iñigo; Larrañaga Serna, Miren; Herrero Dorca, Nuria; Hurtado Hurtado, Iñaki; Kortabarria Lezeta, Aitor (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      In casting parts, due to the manufacturing process, the presence of defects such as porosity, inclusions and oxide films is unavoidable. All these irregularities have a negative effect on the component ...
    • A numerical analysis of multiaxial fatigue in a butt weld specimen considering residual stresses 

      Llavori Osa, Iñigo; Esnaola Ramos, Jon Ander; Etxebarria, Unai; Lopez Jauregui, Arkaitz; Ulacia Garmendia, Ibai; Ugarte Barrena, Done; Larrañaga Serna, Miren (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Residual Stress (RS) pattern changes considerably depending on the width of the plates and the welding parameters, having effect on the fatigue strength. Most of the standards do not consider them and in some works, yield ...
    • The use of areal surface topography characterisation in relation to fatigue performance 

      Zabala Eguren, Alaitz; Llavori Osa, Iñigo; Tato Vega, Wilson; Aginagalde Lopez, Andrea; Gómez Rodríguez, Xabier (EDP Sciences, 2018)
      Although the effect of surface topography on fatigue life is widely accepted, the underlying role of surface roughness from first principles is still poorly understood. Currently approaches which consider the ...
