AB  - Tie-rods of the bucket wheel and counterweight booms are vital parts of the bucket wheel excavator slewing superstructure. This paper is dedicated to the problem of identifying the stress state of the critical cross-section ('net section') of the eye plates on these tie-rods. It presents the results of the experimental and numerical investigations carried out on the eyebar model. The results show the appearance of a plastic deformation in the zone near the contour of the hole even when the eye is subjected to the loads within the range of the permissible loads prescribed by the standard DIN 22261-2. Plastification in the eye net section occurs across the full thickness of the plate, but it does not jeopardize the integrity of the structure. The stress value in the eye net section, calculated in accordance with the standard DIN 22261-2, is significantly lower than the actual stress values around the hole and serves only as a comparative value for the static strength proof for the eye.

AB  - Premature damages and fractures of components and structures of bucket-wheel excavators at open-pit mine often occur in exploitation, caused either by inadequate design or insufficient knowledge of the material properties, welded joints and flaws in component production technology. The bucket-wheel excavator, TAKRAF SRs 2000 x 32/5.0 was employed on the excavation of barren soil for 5.000 h (a few weeks more than a year after the assembly) when the fracture of the tooth of the girth gear, which enables the circular motion of the upper structure of the bucket-wheel excavator, occurred. The gear was, according to the manufacturer's certificate, made of the cast steel GS 40 MnCrSi3 V. The paper presents calculations of the stress variations cycles' number for one tooth, as well as of the fracture mechanics parameters - the critical stress intensity factor and critical crack length. It was established that the fracture of the tooth occurred due to an initial crack existing in its base, which originated during the gear's manufacturing, i.e. due to the so-called "manufacturing-in defect".

AB  - The paper deals with experimental study of the stresses at the bolted end-plate moment connection. The design parameters are adopted to include prying effects in joint. A stress level is obtained in the elements where the highest values occur in the tension zone of the end-plate. The accompanied finite element analysis is performed for comparing purposes with experimental results. It is shown that end-plate thickness should be the unavoidable joint parameter in structural analysis of frame-like structures.

AB  - This paper presents a methodological approach for the assessment of service life of vital welded structures of a bucket-wheel excavator Sch Rs 650/5x24 ('Thyssen Krupp', Germany) boom, subjected to cyclic loading with a variable amplitude through the use of experimental tests carried out in order to determine operational strength and growth of a fatigue crack. Realized researches and results presented in this paper offer great possibilities for the analyses of behaviour of vital welded structures of the bucket-wheel boom. By the application of the measurement device with 8 channels for registration and processing of electric signals HBM Spider 8 and measurement tapes HBM 6/350xXY31 deformations were measured at vital welded structures of the boom in the area of the bucket-wheel, made of steels St 37.2 and St 52.3 in accordance with standard DIN 17100, or steels S235J2G3 and S355J2G3 in accordance with standard EN 10025-2. The objective of the test is to determine if there is a possibility of occurrence of plastic deformations or initial cracks due to fatigue at vital welded structures. Tests that refer to the growth of the fatigue crack located at the welded joint have been carried out by bending at three points with asymmetric load R = 0.5 (R = sigma(min) / sigma(max)) at the specimen with a single edge notch. Tests were performed through the use of controlled force, ranging between F-max and F-min at the high frequency pulsator 'Cracktronic', while obtainment of data regarding the crack growth was carried out through the use of measurement gauge ARM A-10.

In order to clarify the causes of crack occurrence along almost the entire surface of the lever cross-section, the authors performed visual, experimental (chemical composition, tensile properties, microhardness) as well as metallographic examinations. Stress states in the critical zone are defined by applying the finite element method (FEM). Based on the investigation results it was concluded that the lever breakdown is predominantly caused by both the 'operating-in' defect (the malfunction of the limit switch) and the 'manufacturing-in' defect (poor weld quality). The investigation results presented in this paper are important because same or similar problems could arise in supporting structures of various types of transportation, construction and mining machines.

AB  - The high mobility of open pit machines in heavy duty conditions provides fertile ground for the occurrence of various failures of the traveling mechanisms' vital parts such as chain links. The goal of the study presented in this paper was to diagnose the cause of the damage of the bucket wheel excavator crawler chain links. In order to identify the reasons behind chain link failures, stress state calculations were performed as well as experimental investigations which, given the nature of the failure, included visual and metallographic examinations, chemical composition analysis and tests of mechanical properties. Based on the results of the numerical-experimental analyses, it was concluded that the chain link breakdowns are caused by 'manufacturing-in' defects. The results of the presented analyses also emphasize the importance of a comprehensive quality control of chain links.

AB  - During the refurbishment of the hydroelectric generating set A6 on HPP "Djerdap 1", for the state analysis and assessment of the level and causes of degradation of the structure of the vertical Kaplan turbine runner guide vane apparatus non-destructive tests and inspections, as well as destructive tests of base material and welded joints, have been carried out after 40 years of service. Results of non-destructive tests performed on welded joints are presented in this paper (magnetic particle and ultrasonic inspection), as well as results of destructive tests of the base material and welded joints (testing of tensile properties, impact testing, metallographic analyses of the structure). A large number of crack type line indications were detected by magnetic particle inspections, while the occurrence of partial penetration in roots of welded joints was detected by ultrasonic inspections, as well as lamellar tearing of the base material. Tensile properties of tested samples taken in longitudinal and transverse direction fulfilled the requirements of the standard with certain deviations, which does not stand for samples taken in z-direction with significantly lower values of contraction of the cross-section than minimum prescribed values, which proves that base material is not resistant to the occurrence of lamellar cracks. Metallographic tests performed on specimens taken from the base material in longitudinal and transverse direction showed that the microstructure is stripe-shaped and ferrite-pearlite with non-metallic inclusions of oxide, sulphide, silicate and aluminate type, while metallographic tests performed on specimens taken from welded joints showed that their microstructure is stripe-shaped and ferrite-pearlite with non-metallic inclusions of oxide type. A large number of micro- and macro-cracks were detected in the microstructure as well. Experimental tests enabled the determination of the causes of occurrence of lamellar tearing in base material and crack type defects in welded joints, while analytical calculation that refers to the stress state enabled integrity of welded structure of the upper ring of the turbine runner guide vane apparatus.

abstract = "During the refurbishment of the hydroelectric generating set A6 on HPP "Djerdap 1", for the state analysis and assessment of the level and causes of degradation of the structure of the vertical Kaplan turbine runner guide vane apparatus non-destructive tests and inspections, as well as destructive tests of base material and welded joints, have been carried out after 40 years of service. Results of non-destructive tests performed on welded joints are presented in this paper (magnetic particle and ultrasonic inspection), as well as results of destructive tests of the base material and welded joints (testing of tensile properties, impact testing, metallographic analyses of the structure). A large number of crack type line indications were detected by magnetic particle inspections, while the occurrence of partial penetration in roots of welded joints was detected by ultrasonic inspections, as well as lamellar tearing of the base material. Tensile properties of tested samples taken in longitudinal and transverse direction fulfilled the requirements of the standard with certain deviations, which does not stand for samples taken in z-direction with significantly lower values of contraction of the cross-section than minimum prescribed values, which proves that base material is not resistant to the occurrence of lamellar cracks. Metallographic tests performed on specimens taken from the base material in longitudinal and transverse direction showed that the microstructure is stripe-shaped and ferrite-pearlite with non-metallic inclusions of oxide, sulphide, silicate and aluminate type, while metallographic tests performed on specimens taken from welded joints showed that their microstructure is stripe-shaped and ferrite-pearlite with non-metallic inclusions of oxide type. A large number of micro- and macro-cracks were detected in the microstructure as well. Experimental tests enabled the determination of the causes of occurrence of lamellar tearing in base material and crack type defects in welded joints, while analytical calculation that refers to the stress state enabled integrity of welded structure of the upper ring of the turbine runner guide vane apparatus.",
