Soft robots, characterised by compliant mechanisms (CMs) made from low-stiffness materials, offer improved adaptability compared to traditional, rigid robots. These CMs are often actuated by pressure loads. Moreover, soft robots provide new possibilities in the area of robotics. They can be used in search and rescue and interact safely in...

The recent success of - and demand for - compliant mechanisms has increased rapidly within the micro-electromechanical systems-, aircraft-, spacecraft-, surgical-, and precision-instrument industries. Yet, even greater success may be achieved by overcoming the computational cost and instability of the mechanisms' design methodology. This...

Silicon based power semiconductors have long been used as the standard in ‘semiconductor technology in power conversion applications’. Recent developments replaces the Silicon with Silicon Carbide as it results in superior performance of the power conversion applications. However, due to the increased performance, challenges...

Building with earthy materials requires new methods to generate architectural geometry and possibly buildings. Topology optimization is a process often used in mechanical engineering and minimizes the volume while still keeping the maximum stiffness. This research implements this process into architectural models, in order to find geometry based...

The total electrical energy consumption by all the operational data centers (located all over the world) is enormous (approx. 1% of the global electricity demand 20000TWh). This electrical energy is required 24x7 to operate and cool all the IT equipment present in the data center. The electrical energy required to cool all...

High performance machines such as those used in the semiconductor industry, robotics or racing engines have lots of fast moving parts. The dynamic properties of these moving parts are crucial to the performance of the machine. Therefore these moving parts have to be carefully designed which is often a very time consuming iterative process. In...

Background: Delft University of Technology has developed two working prototypes of flexible instruments for surgery, together with a master-slave system. The master-slave system is compatible with the simple parallel cable configuration and the more complex parallel and diagonal cable configuration. It is assumed that the instrument with a...

An important aspect of structural design is to obtain adequate knowledge and prediction of the structure’s dynamic behavior. Wind Turbine Manufacturers (WTMs) design their wind turbines for a lifetime of typically 25 years during which the structure has to withstand a large variety of loads, induced by wind- and wave conditions. To obtain a...

Structural design optimization is the process of obtaining an optimized structure while satisfying a set of criteria. The process can be divided into three stages: topology optimization (stage one), geometry extraction (stage two) and shape optimization (stage three). The last two stages are regarded to be the post-processor of topology...

The Netherlands Aerospace Centre is increasingly improving Selective Laser Melting (SLM) capabilities. It is working with academics and industry on demonstrators to prove the current state of the art of SLM. Recently<br/>they started with additive manufacturing (AM) of internal manifolds. This thesis aims to provide a novel design approach by...
