• Cohesive zone modelling of hydrogen induced cracking on the interface of clad steel pipes 

      Jemblie, Lise; Olden, Vigdis; Maincon, Philippe Emmanuel; Akselsen, Odd Magne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017)
      A coupled finite element hydrogen diffusion and cohesive zone modelling approach has been applied to simulate hydrogen induced fracture initiation in a hot rolled bonded clad steel pipe. The results are compared to ...
    • Enhanced Predictive Modelling of Steel Corrosion in Concrete in Submerged Zone Based on a Dynamic Activation Approach 

      Mir, Zahid Mohammad; Hoche, Daniel; Gomes, Celestino; Sampaio, Rui; Bastos, Alexandre C; Maincon, Philippe Emmanuel; Ferreira, M.G.S.; Zheludkevich, Mikhail L (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      A numerical model for enhanced service life prediction of concrete infrastructure is presented which includes transient analysis of processes during corrosion initiation as well as propagation stage. The temporal and spatial ...
    • FEM formulation for mass diffusion through UMATHT subroutine 

      Alvaro, Antonio; Maincon, Philippe Emmanuel; Osen, Vidar (SINTEF Rapport;, Research report, 2014)
      This report summarized the development of a Finite Element framework for the description of bulk mass diffusion of a solute (hydrogen) in metallic materials (iron/steels). The implemented governing diffusion law accounts ...
    • Modeling hydrogen transport and hydrogen-induced embrittlement 

      Maincon, Philippe Emmanuel (SINTEF Rapport;, Research report, 2020)
      This document provides the theory manual and user manual for two finite elements for the modeling of hydrogen-induced embrittlement of metallic materials. The cohesive zone element (CZE) allows to simulate the creation of ...
    • Numerical and Experimental Analysis of Self‐Protection in Reinforced Concrete due to Application of Mg–Al–NO2 Layered Double Hydroxides 

      Mir, Zahid Mohammad; Bastos, Alexandre; Gomes, Celestino; Mueller, Urs; Alonso, Maria Cruz; Villar, Kristina; Rabade, Miguel P.; Maia, Frederico; Rocha, Cláudia M.; Maincon, Philippe Emmanuel; Höche, Daniel; Ferreira, Mario G. S.; Zheludkevich, Mikhail L. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Concrete possesses an intrinsic chloride binding capacity. Chloride ions from the environment bind with the hydrated cementitious phases in the form of bound chlorides. The contribution of chemically bound chlorides toward ...
