NEW PROJECT ON UNP CAPABILITIES - APPLICATION ON BRIDGES

Steel welded bridges are subject to fatigue failure, Ultrasonic Needle Peening is probably the most suitable process to improve the fatigue life of new or in service bridges. In partnership with the Bowen Lab of Purdue University (Indiana, USA), SONATS and EMPOWERING TECHNLOGIES began a project to demonstrate the capability of UNP process on full scale girder specimens.

 

Manufactured and tested specimens represent similar geometries and details of typical North American bridges.

 

The objective of this study is to prove that the UNP can improve the fatigue category for different locations on bridges as:

  • « Cover plates » from «  E' category» to « C »  according to AASHTO recommendation,
  •  « Transverse Stiffners » from « C' category» to « B »   according to AASHTO recommendation.

For these reached categories, the detail life time is considered as infinite with regard to fatigue.

THE SHOT PEENER - USP: FROM PORTABLE SYSTEMS TO ROBOTIC PRODUCTION LINES

Sans titre.jpg

 

Juliette TRICOIRE (SONATS), explains, in the last issue of The Shot Peener magazine, how this reliable process (Ultrasonic Shot Peening) used by Automotive, Aerospace, Energy... industries, can be semi ou fully-embedded on special-purpose machines or even using robotized cells.

 

 

The technology and process are described, differences with conventionnal shot peening are highlighted and a focus is made on how this robust process can keep up with important prodution rates.

ULTRASONIC NEEDLE PEENING TO REINFORCE TRUCK COMPONENTS

Sonats improves truck components by making them stronger. A demonstration of Ultrasonic Needle Peening at University West (Högskolan Väst, Sweden).

 

Newly presented research at University West makes it possible to produce light weight chassis in trucks by a welding process. This is possible through improved fatigue properties of welded components in high steel strength.
