Where technology & law meet: Open Access research on data security & its regulation ...

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs exploring both the technical aspects of computer security, but also the regulation of existing or emerging technologies. A research specialism of the Department of Computer & Information Sciences (CIS) is computer security. Researchers explore issues surrounding web intrusion detection techniques, malware characteristics, textual steganography and trusted systems. Digital forensics and cyber crime are also a focus.

Meanwhile, the School of Law and its Centre for Internet Law & Policy undertake studies on Internet governance. An important component of this work is consideration of privacy and data protection questions and the increasing focus on cybercrime and 'cyberterrorism'.

Abstract

The extended version of the latest Linear Matching Method (LMM) has the capability to evaluate the stable cyclic response, which produces cyclic stresses, residual stresses and plastic strain ranges for the low cycle fatigue assessment with cyclic load history. The objective of this study is to calculate ΔJ through the LMM and suggest future development directions. The derivation of the ΔJ based on the potential energy expression for a single edge cracked plate subjected to cyclic uniaxial loading condition using LMM is presented. To extend the analysis so that it can be incorporated to other plasticity models, material Ramberg-Osgood hardening constants are also adopted. The results of the proposed model have been compared to the ones obtained from Reference Stress Method (RSM) for a single edge cracked plate and they indicate that the estimates provide a relatively easy method for estimating ΔJ for describing the crack growth rate behaviour by considering the complete accumulated cycle effects.
