Fluid-flow problems in the transitional molecular/continuum regime play an important role in many engineering applications. Such problems are gaining further prominence with the perpetual trend towards miniaturization in science and engineering. The numerical simulation of flows in the transitional molecular/continuum regime and the...

Micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) are nowadays used in many applications, such as airbag accelerometers and inkjet printer heads. With the number of applications growing, the need for advanced numerical tools to aid in the design of MEMS increases. The development of such tools is far from trivial, since numerical modelling of MEMS poses...

The simulation of complex physical phenomena, such as fluid–structure interaction, appears to be within reach in view of the significant progress in computing power over the last decades. Yet, we are still far away from what is desirable in an evermore-demanding, science-and-technology-based society. If, however, we are modest with what we need...

Thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) are applied in gas turbines to enhance their thermal efficiency by isolating the metallic components from the aggressive hot gas. TBC lifetime is limited by damage processes originating at internal interfaces, which may ultimately lead to delamination and spallation. In the present thesis constitutive models are...

Akkerman, I. (author)
A Residual-Based Large-Eddy Simulation (RB-LES) method is developed. This is done by discretizing the Navier-Stokes equations directly. A priori filtering is omitted. Analytical approximation of the subgrid scales results in a unusually-stabilized finite-element method with additional terms arising due to the nonlinearity. This RB-LES method is...

The techniques presented in this thesis are focused to improve corrosion management by providing a better insight into the nature of corrosion. Spatial statistics and finite element simulations are applied to different corrosion patterns to study possible interaction among pits. In order to achieve reliable results different spatial techniques...

The advance of composites used in aerospace, civil and biomechanical engineering and other technology branches over the last decades has led to a substantial increase in the application of these materials. In addition, the search for new and improved materials in aerospace industry has stimulated the development of hybrid materials partly made...

Failure mechanisms in materials and structures can be studied on different length scales. On a structural level, failure can be observed as the propagation of a single crack. However, when zooming into the apparent crack tip, it is revealed that the actual failure process is set by the nucleation and growth of multiple micro-cracks that together...

Munts, E.A. (author)
The Variational Multiscale (VMS) method has appeared as a promising new approach to the Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of turbulent flows. The key advantage of the VMS approach is that it allows different subgrid-scale (SGS) modeling assumptions to be made at different ranges of the resolved scales. Typically, in the VMS method, SGS modeling is...

Fibre metal laminates, such as Arall or Glare, can offer improved properties compared to monolithic materials. Glare for example shows improved fatigue, residual strength, burn-through, impact and corrosion properties with respect to aluminium 2024, together with a considerable weight reduction and competitive costs. A large research program has...

Michler, C. (author)
Numerical solution methods for fluid-structure interaction are of great importance in many engineering disciplines. The computation of fluid-structure interactions is challenging on account of their free-boundary and multi-physics character. The different length and time scale discretization requirements of the fluid and structure subsystems...

Kononov, A.V. (author)
Ultrasonic inspection has become one of the most popular nondestructive testing technique because of its versatility and easy operation. It can detect internal cracks and inclusion type defects in homogeneous or layered materials, often without much difficulty. Layered materials, which are also called laminated materials, have become widely used...

Glare laminates are materials that consist of alternating aluminium and glass prepreg layers especially designed for aeroplane structures. The result is a material that combines the properties of its constituents and the properties of a bonded structure. Some of the favourable characteristics of Glare are its fatigue, impact and fire resistance...
