      Giskeødegård, Nils Håvard (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2016:326, Doctoral thesis, 2016)
      The oxide formed during anodization of aluminium has been a subject of attention since the beginning of the 20th century, due to its protective properties. The oxide consists of two layers, a dense layer adjacent to the ...
    • Bauschinger effect modelled by yield surface distortions 

      Holmedal, Bjørn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      A model for distorting the yield surface by flattening the part in the reverse of the loading direction, is suggested. As the basis for the distortion, the model applies a pair of second-order back-stress tensors of similar ...

      The presence of non-metallic inclusions in aluminium has become a more critical issue with increasing demands on surface quality and low final wall thicknesses of products. Aluminium carbide particles form during the primary ...
    • Behaviour of iron and titanium species in cryolite-alumina melts 

      Jentoftsen, Trond Eirik (Dr.ingeniøravhandling, 0809-103X; 2000:118, Doctoral thesis, 2000)
      The solubility of divalent iron oxide in cryolite-based melts was studied. Both electrochemical and chemical techniques were employed. To ensure that only divalent iron was present in solution, the melt was contained in ...
    • Behaviour of the slip-cast crucible as a contamination source during silicon directional solidification 

      Skarstad, Hanna Vaksvik (Master thesis, 2016)
      In this work the behaviour of the slip-cast crucible as a contamination source of multicrystalline silicon during directional solidification (DS) was investigated. Transport parameters of iron were estimated in two types ...
    • Bending ductility and through thickness anisotropy in 6xxx extruded profiles 

      Li, Yongpeng (Master thesis, 2013)
      6xxx aluminium alloy extruded profiles are widely used in the automotive bumper systems due to light weight, high strength and good ductility. Bending ductility dominates the behavior of bumper systems to absorb energy in ...
    • Bi vacancy formation in BiFeO3 epitaxial thin films under compressive (001)-strain from first principles 

      Xia, Lu; Tybell, Thomas; Selbach, Sverre Magnus (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Point defects in BiFeO3 affect both structural and functional properties. To elucidate the role of single Bi vacancies and Bi–O vacancy pairs we investigate their stability and effect on structural and ferroelectric ...
    • Biaxial strength and slow crack growth in porous alumina with silica sintering aid 

      Bakken, Astrid; Wagner, Susanne; Hoffmann, Michael; Einarsrud, Mari-Ann; Grande, Tor; Thorstensen, Bernt (Journal article, 2018)
      Biaxial strength, fracture toughness and subcritical crack growth are reported for coarse grained porous alumina ceramics. The materials were prepared with a varying amount of a silica sintering aid, which resulted in the ...
    • Bifacial Solar Cells in Nordic Climate 

      Hansen, Siw Anita (Master thesis, 2018)
      Bifacial solar cells can be the new trend within photovoltaic (PV) technology. They have the ability to take advantage of not only the direct irradiance from the sunlight, but also the indirect light which is reflected by ...
