Research has shown the Circumferentially Notched Tensile (CNT) Specimen to potentially be a size-independent fracture toughness specimen. This research focusses on expanding the practical applicability of the CNT specimen as well as using it to perform fracture toughness tests on S690QT steel and simulated CGHAZ material in S690.
Based on...

The Circumferentially Notched Tension (CNT) specimen is a potential candidate for determining the fracture toughness of highly constrained cracks, theoretically approaching plane strain conditions, even for small test specimen dimensions. This research aims to experimentally evaluate the use of the CNT test specimen geometry to fracture...

A new method of flexible interposer with vertically aligned carbon nanotube (CNT) embedded in polymer is proposed in this thesis. Interposer, working as electrical routing between different sockets or connections, is being used for spreading connections and rerouting in packaging technology nowadays. With the rapidly growing application of...

On chip grown CNT nanofoam has a large surface to volume ratio and excellent thermal electrical properties, which is suitable to be used as a thermoacoustic heater. The highly porous foam exchanges heat with surrounding air efficiently. Every processing step is specifically designed to be CMOS compatible using cleanroom microfabrication. This...

Although a lot of research has been devoted to the growth of a long Vertically Aligned Carbon Nanotube Array (VANTA), it remains difficult to find the right parameters on new systems. It has turned out that the recipe that allows the growth of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) in a particular Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) oven is very specific and not...

Over the last few years the need of new alternatives to traditional disease modelling, drug screening and toxicity tests has boosted the development of a new class of devices called Organ on Chip. These usually consist in a substrate or a well in which cells are cultured with the aim of differentiating them in a particular tissue lineage. With...

Recent advances in nanocomposites based on conductive carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have led to investigations of using CNT networks as strain sensors. When CNTs are incorporated into a polymer matrix to form electrical networks, the developed conductive nanocomposite becomes sensitive to strain, thus a linear correlation can be found between strain...

This thesis has explored the possibility of using carbon nanotubes (CNT) as a novel material for through-silicon vias (TSV) in 3D-integrated circuits. With the steady downscaling trend of the semiconductor industry, a major limiting factor to the overall performance of the device is the delay from interconnects; a trend that is worsening over...
