Micro- and nanoelectromechanical (MEM/NEM) resonators are used in numerous fields of engineering and are crucial for time keeping, synchronization, and sensing applications. These systems are subjected to energy dissipation, which is a limiting factor in the performance. Extensive understanding is essential when nonlinearities show up in both...

In the era of advancing technology, the demand for specialized engineering materials has risen significantly. Active Mechanical Metamaterials (AMMs) offer a novel approach to engineering materials with tunable mechanical properties. This research focuses on developing tunable damping active mechanical metamaterials (AMMs) by incorporating...

The emerging high-resolution 3D printing technique called two-photon polymerization (2PP) enables to print devices bottom-up rapidly, contrary to the top-down lithography-based fabrication methods. In this work, various polymer microbeams are 3D printed and their resonant characteristics are analyzed to understand the origin of damping. The...

This work seeks to expand on the research done previously by the WOODY group on the ability of vegetation as a form of wave damping. Specifically in this work, we are looking at pollard willow trees (Salix Alba) and the relationship between the motion of the object and the forces it can induce on the wave flow. This was done by testing a range...

Micro and nanomechanical resonators are essential to the state-of-the-art communication, data processing, timekeeping, and sensing systems. The discovery of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials has been a profound source of inspiration for the next generation of these devices, owing to their exceptional mechanical, electrical, and...

The mimetic spectral element method is a relatively young method in numerical solutions of partial differential equations and actions that describe physical systems. Its advantage is that it takes the geometrical structure of the problem into account which guarantees consistency of the numerical scheme and the conservation of relevant quantities...

For the past 2000 years river training works have been performed on the Dutch rivers. These training works have shaped the river system of today. Another result of the river training works, especially over the last two centuries, is a decrease in biodiversity. To protect the biodiversity some floodplains in the Netherlands have been classified...

Fibre metal laminates (FML) were initially conceived as a hybrid material, aiming to create synergy between the impact resistance of metals and excellent fatigue resistance of fibre reinforced polymers. The purpose of this approach was to overcome the limitations of single-material structures. However, despite its considerable promise, the use...

Integrating compliant mechanisms into high-precision motion systems has facilitated the development of lightweight and frictionless designs. However, these systems often face challenges related to low-frequency parasitic resonance modes and limited structural damping, leading to compromised position accuracy and restricted control bandwidth....

This research presents a novel data-based modal control method for actively dampening the flexible mode in a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system. Traditional passive damping methods add significant mass to the system, making recent advances in sensor and actuator technology, such as lightweight piezoelectric materials, a more appealing...

As offshore wind turbines are moving further from the coast, floating wind turbines are being considered. These structures need to be able to endure high dynamic loads while remaining as still as possible in order to minimize internal stresses and maximize the efficiency of the turbine. To find ways to combat large responses, the effectiveness...

An analytical study of an energy-based approach to damping of a clamped timber column in free vibration under axial, lateral and torsional loading conditions was conducted. Backed by experiments it was confirmed that an energy-based approach, as proposed by Sánchez Gómez (2018), could describe the energy dissipation in a laterally vibrating...

Flying drones have been a well-established field of engineering for many years now. With the wave of bio-inspired design came the idea of flapping wing micro air vehicles (FWMAVs). These drones use flapping wings instead of fixed or rotary wings to generate their lift, giving them the potential for agile movement and application in confined...

Friction damping is common in engineering structures for the purpose of energy dissipation and vibration control. Examples of applications are bolted connections and earthquake isolation systems. However, there is a shortage of works that investigate the effects of different contact materials on the energy dissipation performance and friction...

Fibre metal laminates (FML) were originally developed as a hybrid material, to create synergy between the impact resistance of metals and excellent fatigue and corrosion resistance of fibre reinforced polymers, and to overcome the shortcomings of monolithic materials. Yet, the scope of the FML concept is predominantly limited to GLAss REinforced...

Operational modal analysis (OMA) is an essential tool for understanding the structural dynamics of offshore wind turbines (OWTs). However, the classical OMA algorithms require the excitation of the structure to be stationary white noise, which is often not the case for operational OWTs due to the presence of periodic excitation caused by...

The effect of misalignment between wind- and ice loading direction on the development of ice-induced vibrations of offshore wind turbines has been investigated experimentally. In the experiments a hybrid test setup was used to study the structural response to combined loading from physical model ice and numerically applied wind. The...

In energy absorption applications, architectured metallic materials generally suffer from unrecoverable deformation as a result of local yield damage or inelastic buckling. Nitinol (NiTi) offers recoverable deformation and energy dissipation due to its unique superelasticity, which can change the way we design and additively manufacture...

In order to damp the resonance in the MMC-based Arbitrary Wave shape Generator (AWG) used for high voltage testing, an active damping control methodology is proposed in this paper instead of the passive damping with an arm resistor. It is vital to ensure the system’s stability when such an active damping closed loop control is implemented....

The band-gap frequencies of elastic metamaterials are ideally determined by a metamaterial architecture; yet, in practical situations, are often dependent on the material damping in their constituent(s). The analysis of viscoelastic metamaterials requires however substantial computational resources and, except for oversimplified cases, is...
