This dissertation addresses practical use of multiwavelets and outlier detection for troubled-cell indication for discontinuous Galerkin (DG) methods. For smooth solutions, the DG approximation converges to the exact solution with a high order of accuracy. However, problems may arise when shock waves or discontinuities appear: non-physical...

In this work, we present the application of a newly developed implicit second-order Material Point Method (MPM) on offshore geotechnical applications. The presented second-order MPM uses a special set of piecewise quadratic shape functions to circumvent the well-known issue of producing zero nodal mass contributions. To mitigate the effect of...

Reduced graphene oxide (rGO) suspended in an N,N′-dimethylformamide (DMF) solvent underwent electrophoretic deposition (EPD) on carbon paper (CP) electrodes. X-ray computed micro-tomography (XMT) indicates a 24 % increase in the specific surface area of CP modified with rGO in comparison to the untreated sample. Furthermore, XMT confirms that...

This article presents a detailed study on the potential and limitations of performing higher-order multi-resolution topology optimization with the finite cell method. To circumvent stiffness overestimation in high-contrast topologies, a length-scale is applied on the solution using filter methods. The relations between stiffness...

Additive manufacturing techniques have made it possible to create open-cell porous structures with arbitrary micro-geometrical characteristics. Since a wide range of micro-geometrical features is available for making an implant, having a comprehensive knowledge of the mechanical response of cellular structures is very useful. In this study,...

Commercially available anode supported solid oxide fuel cells (NiO-8YSZ/8YSZ/LSCF- 20 mm in diameter) were anode infiltrated with gadolinium doped ceria (CGO) using a scalable drop-on-demand inkjet printing process. Cells were infiltrated with two different precursor solutions—water based or propionic acid based. The saturation limit of the 0.5...

Stress oscillations and inaccuracies are commonly reported in the material point method (MPM). This paper investigates the causes and presents a method to reduce them. The oscillations are shown to result from, at least in part, two distinctly different causes, both originating from the shape function approximations used. The first is due to the...

Ion-implanted poly-crystalline silicon (poly-Si), in combination with a tunnel oxide layer, is investigated as a carrier-selective passivating contact in c-Si solar cells based on an interdigitated back contact (IBC) architecture. The optimized poly-Si passivating contacts enable low interface recombination, resulting in implied VOC (iVOC) of...

One of the main problems of renewable energies is storage of the energy carrier. For long-term storage, solar fuels seem to be a good option. Direct solar water splitting could play an important role in the production of these solar fuels. One of the main challenges of this process is the charge separation and collection at the interfaces. The...

Multijunction solar cells promise higher power-conversion efficiency than the single-junction. With respect to two-terminal devices, an accurate measurement of the spectral response requires a delicate adjustment of the light- and voltage-biasing; otherwise it can result in artifacts in the data and thus misinterpretation of the cell properties....

Cyanobacteria blooms in source waters have become a worldwide issue for drinking water production. UV-activated persulfate (UV/PS) technology was firstly applied to remove cultivated Microcystis aeruginosa (M. aeruginosa) in bench scale. The presence of persulfate significantly enhanced both cytoclasis and algal organic matter mineralization...

Organ-on-Chips (OOCs) are micro-fabricated devices which are used to culture cells in order to mimic functional units of human organs. The devices are designed to simulate the physiological environment of tissues in vivo. Cells in some types of OOCs can be stimulated in situ by electrical and/or mechanical actuators. These actuations can mimic...

Cells owe their internal organization to self-organized protein patterns, which originate and adapt to growth and external stimuli via a process that is as complex as it is little understood. Here, we study the emergence, stability, and state transitions of multistable Min protein oscillation patterns in live Escherichia coli bacteria during...

Natural life is extraordinarily complex, which by definition means that it has many interconnected and functioning parts. The goal of synthetic biology is to engineer living systems, though due to their very complexity they remain recalcitrant to engineering. What if it were possible to reduce the complexity to a finite amount of parts that are...

In this work, we develop a mathematical formalism based on a 3D in vitro model that is used to simulate the early stages of angiogenesis. The model treats cells as individual entities that are migrating as a result of chemotaxis and durotaxis. The phenotypes used here are endothelial cells that can be distinguished into stalk and tip (leading)...

To meet the increasing need for protein-rich food of an ever growing population, plant-based proteins are being utilized in meat products as replacements for animal-based proteins. Legumes such as soy can serve as an alternative protein source, by featuring both high protein content (36%) and protein functionality (gelation). Nowadays various...

Cell polarity refers to a functional spatial organization of proteins that is crucial for the control of essential cellular processes such as growth and division. To establish polarity, cells rely on elaborate regulation networks that control the distribution of proteins at the cell membrane. In fission yeast cells, a microtubule-dependent...
