Wheel-rail high-frequency interaction is closely related to the formation of railway short-wave defects. Finite element (FE) method has been widely used to simulate wheel-rail dynamic systems, but its validity in modelling high-frequency interaction has not been fully demonstrated in three dimensions (3D). This work aims at comprehensively...

Although strain engineering and soft-clamping techniques for attaining high Q-factors in nanoresonators have received much attention, their impact on nonlinear dynamics is not fully understood. In this study, we show that nonlinearity of high-Q Si<sub>3</sub>N<sub>4</sub> nanomechanical string resonators can be substantially tuned by support...

A train-borne laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV) directly measures the dynamic response of railway track components from a moving train, which has the potential to complement existing train-borne technologies for railway track monitoring. This paper proposes a holistic methodology to characterize train-borne LDV measurements by combining computer...

Transitioning to electric motorcycles (EMs) can reduce dependence on carbon-based fuels, mitigate air pollution, and lower greenhouse gas emissions in countries where motorcycles dominate the transportation landscape. However, the factors influencing fleet electrification in these countries remain largely unknown. Given that this challenge...

Polygonal wear is a type of damage commonly observed on the railway wheel tread. It induces wheel-rail impacts and consequent train/track components failure. This study presents a finite element (FE) thermomechanical wheel-rail contact model, which is able to cope with the three possible generation and development mechanisms of polygonal wear...

Short pitch corrugation has been a problem for railways worldwide over one century. In this paper, a parametric investigation of fastenings is conducted to understand the corrugation formation mechanism and gain insights into corrugation mitigation. A three-dimensional finite element vehicle–track dynamic interaction model is employed, which...

Minimally Invasive Procedures (MIPs) emerged as an alternative to more invasive surgical approaches, offering patient benefits such as smaller incisions, less pain, and shorter hospital stay. In one class of MIPs, where natural body lumens or small incisions are used to access deeper anatomical locations, Flexible Surgical and Interventional...

A transfer function (TF) is an effective representation of the load-response relationship of railway track structures. To fill the gap in measuring track structure TFs over a wide frequency range from a moving vehicle, we develop a TF measurement system and the associated TF estimation methodology. Accelerometers are utilized to estimate the...

This paper aims at identifying the formation mechanism of short pitch rail corrugation using an improved configuration of a 1/5 scaled V-Track test rig. The loading conditions of the V-Track are designed to simulate the wheel-rail dynamic interactions on the tangent track. Corrugation initiation and consistent growth are successfully produced...

In this work, the corrosion mechanism of AA2024-T3 covered by a lithium-based conversion layer is studied with high spatial and temporal resolution. Although the aluminium alloy surface is protected by a multi-layered conversion layer, areas around intermetallic phases (IMPs) represent weak spots due to an insufficient generation of a...

The nano-copper particles are widely used in the sintering processes of packaging wide bandgap semiconductors. Despite the significant success in the industry, the mechanism bridging the sintering process to the mechanical properties of sintered nano-copper is not yet well-modeled. In this paper, the impacts of different sintering temperatures...

The proliferation of pre-trained ML models in public Web-based model zoos facilitates the engineering of ML pipelines to address complex inference queries over datasets and streams of unstructured content. Constructing optimal plan for a query is hard, especially when constraints (e.g. accuracy or execution time) must be taken into consideration...
