Electroluminescence is light emission of phosphor when it is placed in a strong electric field. This field is created by placing a dielectric (non conductive) layer between two electrodes. The field strength is affected by the voltage, distance between electrodes and the dielectric properties of the dielectric layer.
Current do-it-yourself ...

Topology optimization is a strong approach for generating optimal designs which cannot be obtained using conventional optimization methods. Improving structural characteristics by changing the internal topology of a design domain has been fascinating scientists and engineers for years. Topology optimization can be described as a distribution of...

Humans wear helmets to protect the head from impact. However, covering part of the body influences the thermal balance due to restricting the heat loss capacity. This is especially the case for the head due of the lack of vasoconstriction response in the head’s skin. This project focussed on improving thermal comfort and perception when wearing...
