Crack Failure Analysis of Scaffolding Frame Intersection using ADINA

Krishnaprakash Arunachalam1 and Monikandon Sukumaran2*

Introduction Scaffolds are temporary structures commonly used in construction to support various types of loads12. The temporary structure needs to be structurally safe yet also capable of rapid erection, disassembly and reuse. Scaffolding is used on new building projects, and for existing structure including maintenance, repair and painting work. In Building construction some form of temporary support is required to ...

A Study of Supported Poly(N-Butyl Methacrylate) (Pbma) Thin Polymer Films Near The Glass Transition Temperature

Rami A. Omari1 and Gilbert Ayuk2

Introduction The increasing technological demand for ever-thinner amorphous polymer films cast onto solid substrates has quickly advanced the study of supported polymer films from a level of fundamental understanding a few years ago, to an applications level. In applications such as semiconductor fabrication, nanostructured polymer systems, polymeric sensors, organic light emitting diodes, microsystems, biomicrosystems, pharmaceuticals, adhesion, lubrication, coatings, electronics packaging, ...
