Military vehicles are often subjected to dynamic loads from mines. To protect these vehicles, steel plating underneath the vehicle is applied. However, these steel plates can be quite heavy, resulting in a slower vehicle. Composite laminates, however, are much lighter and also prove to be capable of protecting these vehicles from mines.<br/...

Green water and slamming wave impacts can lead to severe damage or operability issues for marine structures. It is therefore essential to consider their probability and loads in design. This is difficult, as impacts are both hydrodynamically complex and relatively rare. The complexity requires high-fidelity modeling (experiments or CFD),...

High-tech equipment critically relies on the precise and reliable fine alignment of components such as mirrors and lenses for calibration and adaptation of instrumentation. To meet the ever-increasing requirements on precision, engineers typically resort to monolithic compliant mechanisms. These mechanisms gain mobility by deformation of the...

Applicability testing of constructive computational mechanisms (CCMs) is a new challenge for both the academia and the industry. The overwhelming majority of the existing validation approaches focuses on the internal validity of CCMs (e.g. consistency, bias), while there is a shortage of efficient approaches for assessing the external...

Energetic materials have widespread applicability in various fields of engineering as propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics. The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO) is investigating additive manufacturing of solid propellants. As part of this investigation, TNO developed a new polymer binder mix for solid...

It is difficult to accurately predict the strength of masonry and concrete structures. The most widely used method for simulating their behaviour is finite element analysis with the Newton-Raphson method and arch length control. However, the Newton-Raphson method can diverge and not produce a result, for example in bifurcations or during snap...

Auxetic materials are increasingly used in the field of sports, defense, bio-medicine, and acoustic-filtering due to their unconventional behavior of exhibiting a negative Poisson's effect. The prospective use of auxetics to mitigate shock and impact forces have proven the relevance of research on auxetics. It becomes of paramount importance to...
