This thesis studies the use of metamaterials for mitigating train-induced ground-borne vibrations, a growing issue with the projected increase in train transportation. Traditional mitigation measures such as trenches often fall short, particularly at low frequencies and small incidence angles. Metamaterials, engineered to alter wave propagation...

Micro-indentation testing has shown great promise in extracting local mechanical properties of ductile metal materials. Although the relevant contact physics has been well revealed since the 19th century, interpreting the indentation data still poses many challenges at the application level. Regarding one of the mainstream methodologies for...

Underwater noise resulting from the monopile driving process can cause severe damage to marine wildlife, such as hearing injury, behavioral disturbance, or even death. Although current noise-attenuation techniques used in this process have shown a significant noise reduction at high frequency ranges, mitigating low-frequency noise is still...

Lightweight materials used for impact mitigation must be able to resist impact and absorb the maximum amount of energy from the impactor. Auxetic materials have the potential to achieve high resistance by drawing material into the impact zone and providing higher indentation and shear resistance. However, these materials must be artificially...

Fused Filament Fabrication is an additive manufacturing technique in which molten thermoplastic polymers are extruded through a nozzle. Therefore, the interplay between the viscoelastic nature of the polymer melt, temperature, printing conditions and nozzle shape may lead to inconsistent extrusion. To improve the extrusion control and...

This paper proposes a novel framework for simulating the dynamics of beams on elastic foundations. Specifically, partial differential equations modeling Euler–Bernoulli and Timoshenko beams on the Winkler foundation are simulated using a causal physics-informed neural network (PINN) coupled with transfer learning. Conventional PINNs encounter...

Early-age cracking risk induced by autogenous deformation is high for cementitious materials of low water-binder ratios. The autogenous deformation, viscoelastic properties, and stress evolution are three important factors for understanding and quantifying the early-age cracking risk. This paper systematically reviewed the experimental and...

Methods have been developed to predict how hydrodynamic loads acting on nearly saturated porous media are transmitted to the subsoil. In line with the effective stress principle of Terzaghi, these methods apply the boundary conditions that the effective stresses at the surface of a porous medium are zero, and that the pore water pressures...

To fulfill the high-temperature application requirement of high-power electronics packaging, Cu nanoparticle sintering technology, with benefits in low-temperature processing and high-melting point, has attracted considerable attention as a promising candidate for the die-attach interconnect. Comprehensive mechanical characterization of the...

The development of hot dry rocks (HDRs) is of great significance to adjusting energy structure, alleviating energy shortage, reducing pollution, etc. Low-permeability granite is the predominant rock type in deep HDRs, making fractures the primary pathways for fluid circulation and heat extraction. The production of HDRs is significantly...

Bistable mechanisms are prevalent across a broad spectrum of applications due to their ability to maintain two distinct stable states. Their energy consumption is predominantly confined to the process of state transitions, thereby enhancing their efficiency. However, the transition often requires two distinct digital inputs, implicating the...

The Hierarchical Subspace Iteration Method is a novel method used to compute eigenpairs of the Laplace-Beltrami problem. It reduces the number of iterations required for convergence by restricting the problem to a smaller space and prolonging the solution as a starting point. This method has shown great performance improvements for Laplace...

Summary<br/><br/>Numerous ancient historical constructions worldwide depend primarily on an extensive array of wooden foundation piles, as they are subject to loading conditions governed by the superstructure above. Wooden foundations transfer loads through a combination of compression and lateral resistance. The inherent strength of wood...

Catamarans are popular in the offshore sector as they combine good transverse stability and ample deck space with low wave resistance. However, their slender hull shape results in low restoring qualities in heave and pitch motions. The large motions in rough weather can often result in water impacting the underside of the deck connecting the two...

One of the novel methodologies in computational physics research is to use mimetic discretisation techniques. Among these, the mimetic spectral element method holds special promise as it not only has the benefits of mimetic methods but also the additional benefit of higher-order discretisations using higher polynomial degrees. These methods are...

Depleted-gas sandstone reservoirs in the Dutch North Sea are being evaluated for offshore carbon storage under the ARAMIS project. The variability in geomechanical properties urges an investigation of the elastic parameters. This study involved cored samples and logs from five Slochteren and Solling formations wells. It aims to characterize...

Neuromuscular diseases often result in elevated passive joint impedance (PJI), impacting the daily lives of affected individuals. To be able to apply assistive devices that compensate for PJI, it is essential to identify the PJI correctly. This study aims to identify and model the PJI of the elbow joint, to improve the control of force-based...

In this report we examine the dual space of $\ell^\infty$. If $p \in [1,\infty)$ and $q \in [1,\infty]$ satisfy $\frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{q}=1$, then one can identify the spaces $\ell^q$ and $(\ell^p)'$ in a natural way via an isometric isomorphism. This identification does not extend to the case $p=\infty$ and $q=1$. We prove that the obvious...

This thesis introduces the Discontinuity-Enriched Finite Element Method (DE-FEM) for the modeling of dynamic multiple crack growth problems including branching and merging, as an alternative to eXtended/Generalized Finite Element Method (X/GFEM). DE-FEM differs from X/GFEM by placing the enriched degrees of freedom (DOFs) directly along the...
