Shape-memory Alloys (SMAs) exhibit tremendous mechanical properties owing to their reversible phase transformation between the austenitic and the martensitic phase. Out of these, equi-atomic nickel-titanium (NiTi) alloys are the most widely used SMAs for various applications since the transformation occurs close to room temperature. Advances in...

The main objective of this thesis is to obtain a better understanding of adhesive contacts and their frictional behaviour. Both natural and man-made surfaces are rough over a wide range of length scales. Tribological studies of rough surfaces need to account for the interactions between these asperities. In this work a sim- ple atomistically...

Sustainability has become an integral part of todays society. A thorough understanding of friction as a major cause of energy dissipation is therefore highly relevant. Friction of rough surfaces in contact is a physical phenomenon that involves multiple length- and time-scales, complicating a full understanding of friction. The fundamental study...

The ultimate objective of this work is to gain a better understanding of the plastic behavior of rough metal surfaces under contact loading. Attention in this thesis focuses on the study of single and multiple asperities with micrometer scale dimensions, a scale at which plasticity is known to be size dependent. The asperities have very simple...

This thesis addresses the feasibility of a new nanotechnology, direct metal nanoimprinting. The main aim of this work is to investigate, by means of computer simulations, the possibility to create reproducible patterns in a metal layer by plastically deforming it with a rigid template.
