The computational modeling of crack propagation is important in aerospace and automotive industries because cracks play a significant role in structural failure. In comparison with the quasi-static case, inertial effects are significant in dynamic crack propagation. The classical numerical tool for modeling dynamic crack propagation is the...

Energy harvesting from renewable energy sources has become more popular in the last decades than ever before. New energy sources consisting of human input vibrations are hopeful alternatives for powering wearable low power electronics. These sensors currently rely on the lifetime of the battery and come along with high maintenance costs in case...

In recent developments in the field of multi-material additive manufacturing, differences in material properties are exploited to create printed shape memory structures, which are referred to as 4D-printed structures. New printing techniques allow for the introduction of prestresses in the specimen during manufacturing. This research focuses on...

In the field of vibration energy harvesting, vibration energy is tranduced to electrical energy to power small, low powered devices. Many energy harvesters are produced in the form of a resonator, where resonant amplification enables efficient operation of the energy harvester. At low frequencies below 10 hz, input motions quickly increase for a...

Bistable vibration energy harvesters are an interesting alternative to their linear counterparts. They allow for large amplitude oscillations between their stable equilibria, from which much energy can be generated. However, the stable equilibria are separated by a potential energy barrier that has to be overcome. Therefore, we cannot guarantee...

The demand for nanoparticles in various applications is increasing. These applications can only be realised if nanoparticles can be specifically arranged and patterned on a substrate. This thesis considers a direct write method that uses an aerodynamic focusing nozzle to deposit these particles. A major challenge arises when the nanoparticles...

A LED induced fluorescent technique based test setup is introduced , which is used to measure the water film thickness of compliant hydrostatic bearings. Fluorescent particles have the characteristic of absorbing light of a certain wavelength and emitting light of a higher wavelength. A LED with a wavelength of 540 nm (green light) is used to...

This thesis presents the development of a contactless sensing system and the dynamic evaluation of an air-bearing based precision wafer positioning system. The contactless positioning stage is a response to the trend seen in the high-tech industry, with the substrates becoming thinner and larger to reduce the cost and increase the yield. With...
