Geological Disposal Facilities (GDF) for radioactive waste will generally rely on clay-rich materials as a host geological formation and/or engineered barrier. Gas will be produced within the GDF, which can build up significant gas pressure and will activate the migration of gas through the clay materials via different transport mechanisms....

Bone encompasses a complex arrangement of materials at different length scales, which endows it with a range of mechanical, chemical, and biological capabilities. Changes in the microstructure and characteristics of the material, as well as the accumulation of microcracks, affect the bone fracture properties. In this study, two-dimensional...

In this paper, a numerical simulation method of mixed-mode fatigue crack propagation was explored using the extended finite element method (XFEM) and the Virtual Crack Closure Technique (VCCT). Both 2D and 3D numerical models were selected to simulate the fatigue crack propagation of steel specimens. Two coefficients were proposed to...

Strengthening fatigue damage of orthotropic steel decks (OSDs) needs to comprehensively consider the strengthening effect and the dead weight introduced during the strengthening process, especially for OSDs in super large-span bridges or old renovated bridges, where the dead weight cannot be significantly increased during repair and...

The problem of modelling plasticity in materials has been investigated for the past 200 years. Standard theories on yielding for metals go back to the era of Tresca(1864) and von Mises(1913). The rapid rise of the finite element method and new testing techniques in the last few decades led to further research. This thesis aims to model large...

One-third of the Dutch dike system consists of peat dikes. Drought causes these dikes to crack and fail more easily. Visual dike inspections are therefore inefficient, especially considering the increasing climate changes of the future. Research has shown that a fiber optic sensor cable (FOS), used in distributed temperature sensing (DTS), can...

Treatment of early stage breast cancer is generally invasive to a patient's daily life while being treated. Therefore, to diminish the physical and psychological impact during and after recovery, a newly proposed minimally invasive therapy for early-stage breast cancer treatment is proposed. Within this study, this proposed treatment is modelled...

With the rise of hydrogen as a green alternative for fossil fuels, the demand for storage capacity of hydrogen increases significantly. Due to the high risk of explosions in urban environments it brings along, the blast analysis of buildings within in range of the explosions becomes more relevant.<br/><br/>The goal of this research is to develop...

In this work residual error estimates are constructed using Neural Networks for Finite Element Method. These can be used to do adaptive mesh refinement. Two neural networks are developed the Multilayer Perceptron and the Transformer model. The error estimates are made for 1d poisson equations but the idea will generalise to higher dimensions as...

This thesis continues the investigation in the direction of exploring the potential regarding the use of Topology Optimization techniques for the design of cast glass structures. Previous theses in TU Delft have underlined the large potential for the design of these megaliths, but at the same time they have also underlined the strong limitations...

The Netherlands is inherently challenged by water, as a large part of the country lies below sea level and several major rivers in North-western Europe cross the country. The most prevalent form of protection from coastal and river floods in the Netherlands includes approximately 22,000 km of earthen dikes, of which 3800 km are primary flood...

Introduction: Atherosclerosis is characterised by the buildup of plaque within the arterial wall and it is often the underlying cause effect of deaths related to cardiovascular diseases. Thin cap fibroatheromas are plaques with a high risk of causing clinical events due to rupture and espousal of thrombogenic components to the bloodstream. The...

Phononic crystals can be designed to have bandgaps---ranges of frequencies whose propagation through the material is prevented. They are therefore attractive for vibration isolation applications in different industries, where unwanted vibrations reduce performance. Yet, important steps are still to be made for the integration of phononic...

Mudunuru, Nanditha (author)
Designing and modeling compatibilized polymer blends require accurate interface model. In addition, it is possible that crazing occurs during failure of the interfaces leading to large deformation prior to complete failure and therefore must be accounted for by the interface model.<br/><br/>A preliminary literature review showed that existing...

The goal of the thesis is to investigate two main questions for the purpose of modelling fractures in timber with a finite element method. The first question is to evaluate the use of digital image correlation during a three point bending test to obtain mean values for tensile strength and fracture energy, and the follow up question is if it is...

In finite element software one has to solve a system of non-linear equations, which is commonly simplified to a sequence of linear system. We research the possibility to solve these systems on a GPU to improve the solve time. We are particularly interested in systems arising from geotechnical models. We compare several combinations of Krylov...

Cracks, which could nucleate and propagate in engineering structures, could have an adverse effect on mechanical performance and even lead to catastrophic failure. Thus, it is critical to investigate structural behavior under fracture, which requires an appropriate modeling methodology for fracture analysis. Furthermore, designing structures...

We propose a fully immersed topology optimization procedure to design structures with tailored fracture resistance under linear elastic fracture mechanics assumptions for brittle materials. We use a level set function discretized by radial basis functions to represent the topology and the Interface-enriched Generalized Finite Element Method ...

Microscopic stress and strain partitioning control the mechanical and damage behavior of multiphase steels. Using a combined numerical and experimental approach, local strain distributions and deformation localization are characterized in a carbide free bainitic steel produced by continuous cooling. The microstructure of the steel consists of...

This paper conducts a numerical analysis on the external surface cracked steel pipes reinforced with Composite Repair System. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) model is developed to calculate the Stress Intensity Factor (SIF) of the surface crack, and the crack growth process is evaluated by the Paris’ law. The effect of FRP-to-steel...
