Abstract [en]

The current thesis work is based on fatigue testing of welded structures which is completed in collaboration with Volvo CE. Improvement of the technology and customers demands for higher quality products with lower price makes the VCE to invest on the product development projects. One of the projects in VCE focuses on the weight and production cost optimization of the bogie beam on the hauler. The present project is a completion of the previous project with the objective of the fatigue testing of the bogie beam of the hauler under oscillating loads for verification of the expected fatigue life assessed with FEM. In the process of this work, an existing test rig is modified. The strains over the beam are measured through strain gauges mounted on the beam. The simulated model, the stresses and strains are investigated. The fatigue life is evaluated with different fatigue assessment methods. Finally, the outcomes of all the methods for fatigue investigation of the beam are compared and verified.

Abstract [sv]

Detta examensarbete, som utförts för Volvo CE, behandlar utmattningsprov av svetsade konstruktioner. Teknikutveckling och förändrade kundkrav på högre kvalitet till en lägre kostnad är drivkrafter för Volvo CE att investera i produkt- och metodutvecklingsprojekt, som exempelvis det aktuella projektet att optimera vikt och tillverkningskostnad för boggi-balkar till dumprar. Detta projekt är en fortsättning av ett tidigare arbete som hade som mål att verifiera utmattningslivslängden för en boggibalk till en dumper predikterad med FEM, genom att utmattningsprova balken för oscillerande last. Som en del av projektet modifieras en existerande provningsrigg. Töjningar på balken mats med ett antal töjningsgivare monterade på balken. Spännings och töjningfrån den simulerade modellen analyseras och utmattningslivslängden jämförs för olika metoder för att prediktera utmattning. Slutligen jämförs och veriferas dessa metoder.
