Montano, V. (author)
The work exposed in this thesis addresses two main scientific challenges in the field of intrinsic self-healing polymers that limit the translation of the academic research efforts into commercial products, namely: i) the implementation of the self-healing functionality in polymer commodities by minimal chemical modifications; and ii) the...

Thermal Barrier Coating (TBC) systems are protective layers applied to critical structural components of gas turbines operating at high-temperature. A typical TBC system consists of three different layers, namely a ceramic Top Coat (TC), an active Thermally Grown Oxide (TGO) layer and a metallic Bond Coat (BC). The outer ceramic TC that protects...

The main objective of the work described in this dissertation is to explore the route towards new anticorrosion coatings for the protection of aerospace aluminium alloys using alternative strategies that can replace the currently used toxic chromate corrosion inhibitors. As such, each chapter of this dissertation is devoted to relevant...

Thermal interface materials (TIMs) are widely used as gap–filler materials between electronic devices such as LEDs and ICs and their heat sink and aim to control the heat dissipation and to provide mechanical anchoring. As the rated power densities of electronic devices are increasing rapidly, the TIMS are exposed to higher thermal and...

The development in computational simulation techniques has brought significant progress in the realization of computational alloy design. The advantages are most significant when developing novel materials of which the research & development cycles are particularly time and energy (and hence cost) consuming, such as high-temperature alloys....

Susa, A. (author)
Covalent reversible chemistries give rise to polymers with reasonable mechanical properties yet require external stimuli to heal. Oppositely, supramolecular systems can heal autonomously, but their properties are still far away from most of those set by application requirements. Both downsides need to be addressed before intrinsic healing...

Solid-state phase transformations in steels cover a broad range of aspects. The underlying physics behind these phase transformations usually include nucleation, diffusion, lattice reconstruction and interactions between solutes and grain boundaries and interfaces. These features and the fact that the events take place at high temperatures, in...

Steels are still, and probably will remain in future, the primary choice for applications as structural materials. This is not only because of the reasonable ratios of properties over production costs, but also owing to the versatile properties realisable via variety of microstructures achieved by controlling the solid-state phase...

Boatemaa, L. (author)
Alumina (Al2O3) is an attractive ceramic for engineering applications operating at elevated or high temperatures because of its good thermal and chemical resistance. It also maintains high strength and hardness at high temperatures. These desirable properties are due to the strong covalent and ionic bonds existing between its atoms.<br/>However,...

Research in the field of self-healing materials gained significant attention in the last decade owing to its promise of enhanced durability of the material components in engineering applications. Though the research has led to several successful demonstrations, extensive experimental tests will be required for a successful demonstration. Further...

Post, W. (author)
Over the past decade, many different strategies were developed to introduce selfhealing properties in structural polymer composite materials. Although many of the investigated routes show promising results on an academic scale, the first commercially feasible self-healing structural polymer composite has yet to be developed. The main objective...

Damage management and the development of new materials come together in selfhealing Mn+1AXn phase ceramics. These ternary layered carbides and nitrides exhibit a multitude of properties, such as high temperature strength, fracture toughness, thermal and electrical conductivity and machinability, which have been discovered over the past 20 years....

The thesis attempts to develop advanced high abrasion resistant steels with low hardness in combination with good toughness, processability and low alloying additions. For this purpose, a novel multi-pass dual-indenter (MPDI) scratch test approach has been developed to approach the real continuous abrasion process and unravel abrasion damage...

Alloy design by the traditional trial and error approach is known to be a time consuming and a highly cost procedure, especially for the design of heat resistant steel where the feedback time is intrinsically long. The significant developments in computational simulation techniques in the last decades have made a theory-guided computational...
