As one of the most important components of a flapping-wing micro air vehicle (FWMAV), the design of an energy-efficient flapping-wing has been a research interest recently. Research on insect flight from different perspectives has been carried out, mainly with regard to wing morphology, flapping kinematics, and unsteady aerodynamics. However,...

Nowadays, mechanical designers and engineers of elastic structures at ultra-small scales face an interesting challenge; traditional flexures with several components, mechanical joints/ welds and linkages are almost impossible to manufacture with existing microsystem fabrication technologies. Therefore, the majority of mechanical components,...

Post-operative change in the mechanical loading of bone may trigger its (mechanically induced) adaptation and hamper the mechanical stability of prostheses. This is especially important in cementless components, where the final fixation is achieved by the bone itself. The aim of this study is, first, to gain insight into the bone remodelling...

Recent measurements have indicated that the elastic behaviour of silicon nanocantilevers and nanowires is size-dependent. Several theoretical models have been proposed to explain this phenomenon, mainly focused on surface stress effects. However, discrepancies are found between experiments and theories, indicating that there could be other...

Micro/nano resonant cantilevers with a laser deflection readout have been very popular in sensing applications over the past years. Despite the popularity, however, most of the research has been devoted to increasing the sensitivity, and very little attention has been focused on effects-induced errors. Among these effects, the surface effects...

The size-dependent elastic behavior of silicon nanocantilevers and nanowires, specifically the effective Young’s modulus, has been determined by experimental measurements and theoretical investigations. The size dependence becomes more significant as the devices scale down from micro- to nano-dimensions, which has mainly been attributed to...

This contribution presents a novel and versatile approach to geometrically nonlinear topology optimization by combining the level-set method with the element connectivity parameterization method or ECP. The combined advantages of both methods open up the possibility to treat a wide range of optimization problems involving complex physical and/or...

A review of conventional testing methods for applying external hydrostatic pressure to buckling-critical shells is presented. A new “volume-control” pressure testing method, aimed at preventing catastrophic specimen failures and improving control of specimen deformation near the critical load, is also introduced. The implementation of...

In this letter, the dominant role of surface stress and surface elasticity on the overall elastic behavior of ultrathin cantilever plates is studied. A general framework based on two-dimensional plane-stress analysis is presented. Because of either surface reconstruction or molecular adsorption, there exists a surface stress and a surface...

This letter presents the application of electrostatic pull-in instability to study the size-dependent effective Young’s Modulus ? ( ~170–70?GPa) of [110] silicon nanocantilevers (thickness ~1019–40?nm). The presented approach shows substantial advantages over the previous methods used for characterization of nanoelectromechanical systems...

In this paper, we illustrate and study the opportunities of resonant ring type structures as wing actuation mechanisms for a flapping wing Micro Air Vehicle (MAV). Various design alternatives are presented and studied based on computational and physical models. Insects provide an excellent source of inspiration for the development of the wing...

This paper presents an overview of a new type of thermal micro-actuators using thermally expandable polymers with embedded skeletons. Embedding a stiff skeleton enhances the actuation capability of the thermally expandable polymer. Consequently, the skeleton-reinforced polymers feature a large maximum actuation stress (often above 100 MPa) and a...

Submicron cantilever structures have been demonstrated to be extremely versatile sensors and have potential applications in physics, chemistry and biology. The basic principle in submicron cantilever sensors is the measurement of the resonance frequency shift due to the added mass of the molecules bound to the cantilever surface. This paper...

Modelling the course of healing of a long bone subjected to loading has been the subject of several investigations. These have succeeded in predicting the differentiation of tissues in the callus in response to a static mechanical load and the diffusion of biological factors. In this paper an approach is presented which includes both...

A powerful and effective design of a polymeric thermal microactuator is presented. The design has SU-8 epoxy layers filled and bonded in a meandering silicon (Si) microstructure. The silicon microstructure reinforces the SU-8 layers by lateral restraint. It also improves the transverse thermal expansion coefficient and heat transfer for the...

This article illustrates the opportunities that combining computational modeling and systematic design optimization techniques offer to facilitate the design process of shape memory alloy (SMA) structures. Focus is on shape memory behavior due to the R-phase transformation in Ni-Ti, for which a dedicated constitutive model is formulated. In this...
