In modern ASML machines optical components play an important role in the lithography process. EUV light is transported from the source to wafer by reflective optics. These mirrors are subjected to large thermal loading, as a large portion of the reflected light is absorbed in the mirror structure. The portion of the absorbed light is strongly...

A neutrino is a intriguing subatomic particle. Although the neutrino is the second most abundant known particle in the universe and billions of neutrinos pass through our own body each second, it is not easy to detect them and they remain poorly understood. The detection of neutrinos can help us understand various events happening in space and...

This thesis concerns the optimal design of wind turbine blades for bend twist coupling effects. Bend-twist coupling effects can prove to be an effective way of reducing fatigue damage and root bending moments for a wind turbine blade. However, how can bend-twist coupling be incorporated into a wind turbine blade considering the many structural...

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...

This work introduces a new method to deal with design dependent pressure loads in Topology Optimisation (TO) using the SIMP material model. A pronounced focus is on optimising pressure actuated compliant mechanisms. The difficulty herein is the interpretation of the pressure boundary in a TO design. In TO the boundaries are blurry, because of...

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...

The stringent and conflicting requirements of optomechanical instruments and the ever-increasing need for higher resolution and quality imagery demands a tightly integrated design approach. The aim of this study is to drive the thermomechanical design of multiple components of an optomechanical instruments by the system’s optical performance....

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...

Topology optimization is a strong approach for generating optimal designs which cannot be obtained using conventional optimization methods. Improving structural characteristics by changing the internal topology of a design domain has been fascinating scientists and engineers for years. Topology optimization can be described as a distribution of...
