Rebosolan, Matteo (author)
The objective of this thesis was to develop a microstructure-based FE modeling technique to be used in solder joints for semiconductor packaging applications. This technique is capable of generating random solder joint microstructures featuring β − Sn grains and grain boundaries by means of 3D Voronoi tessellations. The anisotropic material...

This work develops a stand-alone Finite Element-based Unit Cell for the modelling of Fibre Reinforced Composites, capable of capturing 3D stress states and geometrical imperfections at the micro-scale. The project considers different beam and 3D elements for this purpose and draws comparisons between them based on computational efficiency,...

The aerospace engineering industry is continuously striving for faster methods to solve and optimize engineering and research problems with a higher degree of accuracy. It is therefore relevant to investigate possibilities that are expected to accelerate computational speed, such as quantum computing. For this reason, the objective of this...

Due to an exponential growth in the number of shipments of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), the amount of these devices operating in the sky has increased remarkably over the last few years. This led to an increasing number of proximity incidents with manned aircraft. Since these devices share certain airspace with rotorcraft, the question arises...

Giele, Reinier (author)
The demand for better performing structural designs gives rise to the interest in topology optimization. An accurate geometry description is fundamental in the optimization process. The Cut Finite Element Method (CutFEM) can describe the object surface on a fixed grid with an immersed boundary. To this level set method, multiple techniques from...

Venkatesan, Karthik (author)
This research project was initiated as a result of a curiosity and desire to investigate the applicability of surrogate modelling to analyse complex non-linear behaviour in aircraft structures. The study chose to focus on modelling damage in composite plates, and through a literature review, deemed that the generation of graphical outputs was a...

Gulikers, Tom (author)
Engineering fields such as aerospace rely heavily on the Finite Element Method (FEM) as a modelling tool. In combination with the scale and complexity of the structures typically involved here, computational cost remains a traditional issue. To perform FEM analyses of such structures efficiently nonetheless, engineers rely on techniques such as...

Zahalka, Omar (author)
Fibre-reinforced composites have become increasingly attractive for many engineering applicationsin the last decades. A very interesting aspect of these materials is that their mechanical properties canbe tailored for optimum strength and stiffness by controlling the orientation of the fibers embeddedin the matrix material. Composites are...

Russo, Raffaele (author)
Composite delamination represents one of the most critical failure mechanisms occurring in composite structures. In case complex structures are being designed, numerical methods need to be employed. One of the methods to numerically simulate delamination in a Finite Element environment is through the employment of the Cohesive Elements, which...

ANAND, PRIYANSHU (author)
Near free edges of fibre reinforced composite laminates modelled with homogeneous layers, the presence of high gradient interlaminar stresses has been found theoretically. Over a span of nearly 50 years, various methods, including numerical and analytical have been employed for analysis of the high gradient stresses which sometimes exist to an...
