Vibrational piezoelectric energy harvesters are being investigated to replace batteries in embedded sensor systems. The energy density that can be harvested depends on the figure of merit, d<sub>33</sub>g<sub>33</sub>, where d<sub>33</sub> and g<sub>33</sub> are the piezoelectric charge and voltage coefficient. Commonly used piezoelectric...

Studies on porous trailing edges, manufactured with open-cell Ni-Cr-Al foams with sub-millimeter pore sizes, have shown encouraging results for the mitigation of turbulent boundary-layer trailing-edge noise. However, the achieved noise mitigation is typically dependent upon the pore geometry, which is fixed after manufacturing. In this study,...

The hydrodynamic and acoustic fields for a NACA 0018 with solid and porous trailing edge inserts are investigated. The porous inserts, covering 20% of the chord, are manufactured with metal foams with cell diameters of 450 and 800 μm and permeability values of 6 × 10−10 and 2.7 × 10−9 m2. The experiments are performed at a chord-based Reynolds...

Turbulent boundary layer trailing-edge noise scattered by a NACA0018 airfoil equipped with 3D printed perforated trailing-edge inserts, i.e. with straight cylindrical channels connecting the two sides of the airfoil, is investigated. The inserts have different permeability in order to assess the effect of this property on broadband noise...

A computational fracture analysis is conducted on a self-healing particulate composite employing a finite element model of an actual microstructure. The key objective is to quantify the effects of the actual morphology and the fracture properties of the healing particles on the overall mechanical behaviour of the (MoSi2) particle-dispersed...

Controlling the kinetics of austenite decomposition by controlled partitioning of alloying elements, in particular carbon and manganese, is the key factor for optimizing the microstructures of advanced high-strength steels. In this study, a systematic set of computational and experimental cyclic partial phase transformations in low to medium...

When metals are mechanically loaded at elevated temperatures for extended periods of time, creep damage will occur in the form of cavities at grain boundaries. In the present experiments it is demonstrated that in binary iron-tungsten alloys creep damage can be self healed by selective precipitation of a W-rich phase inside these cavities. Using...

The performance of a self-healing Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) containing dispersed healing particles depends crucially on the mismatch in thermomechanical properties between the healing particles and the TBC matrix. The present work systematically investigates this phenomenon based on numerical simulations using cohesive element-based finite...

We present a systematic study of the role of the aromatic dianhydride structure on the self-healing behavior of dimer diamine-based polyimides. By means of solid-state NMR and rheology, we studied the molecular and microscale dynamics of four polyimides comprising the same aliphatic branched diamine yet with variable dianhydride rigidities...

Piezoelectric energy harvesters are at the front of scientific research as enablers of renewable, sustainable energy for autonomous wireless sensor networks. Crucial for this disruptive technology is the achievable output power. Here we show, analytically, that the maximum output energy per unit volume, under a single sinusoidal excitation,...

The magnetic configuration of a ferromagnetic system with mono-disperse and poly-disperse distribution of magnetic particles with inter-particle interactions has been computed. The analysis is general in nature and applies to all systems containing magnetically interacting particles in a non-magnetic matrix, but has been applied to steel...

A 3D model has been developed to predict the average ferrite grain size and grain size distribution for an austenite-to-ferrite phase transformation during continuous cooling of an Fe-C-Mn steel. Using a Voronoi construction to represent the austenite grains, the ferrite is assumed to nucleate at the grain corners and to grow as spheres....

The effect of particle size on the oxidation kinetics of TiC powders is studied. Different sizes of TiC powder ranging from nanometre to submillimetre sizes are investigated. The samples are heated at different heating rates from room temperature up to 1200 °C in dry synthetic air. The Kissinger method for analysis of non-isothermal oxidation...

This work explores the possibility of using embedded micron-sized Ti particles to heal surface cracks in alumina and to unravel the evolution of the crack filling process in case of pure solid-state oxidation reactions. The oxidation kinetics of the Ti particles is studied and the results are applied in a simple model for crack-gap filling....

We have analyzed the evolution of the ferrite fraction and average ferrite grain size during partial cyclic austenite-to-ferrite and ferrite-to-austenite phase transformations in an Fe-0.25C-2.1Mn (wt pct) steel using three-dimensional neutron depolarization (3DND). In the 3DND experiments, the ferrite fraction is derived from the rotation...

Formation of the microstructural ferrite/pearlite bands in medium Mn steels is an undesirable phenomenon commonly addressed through fast cooling treatments. In this study, a novel approach using the cyclic partial phase transformation concept is applied successfully to prevent microstructural band formation in a micro-chemically banded Fe-C...

A cohesive zone-based constitutive model, originally developed to model fracture, is extended to include a healing variable to simulate crack healing processes and thus recovery of mechanical properties. The proposed cohesive relation is a composite-type material model that accounts for the properties of both the original and the healing...

Direct microscopic observation of the isothermal bainite evolution in terms of nucleation events, the location of the nuclei, as well as their growth is very valuable for the refinement of models predicting the kinetics of bainite transformation. To this aim, the microstructural evolution in a Fe-0.2C-1.5Mn-2.0Cr alloy during isothermal...

A wedge loaded testing methodology to determine the fracture energy and strength of (semi-) brittle (metallo-)ceramics is presented. The methodology combines a tailored specimen geometry and a comprehensive finite element analysis based on cohesive zone modelling. The use of a simulation-based approach to extract both fracture strength and...
