Metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) are a class of hybrid materials with metal-based inorganic nodes connected by organic linkers via strong coordination bonds. These building blocks can be arranged in 3-D crystalline lattices to synthesize structures with varying pore sizes and a variety of structures (tuneability). These hybrid materials possess...

In recent years, many therapeutic applications for medical ultrasound have arisen, such as ablation of tumors, breaking up kidney stones, and neuromodulation. To localize the target area, often ultrasound imaging methods are used. Conventionally, a different transducer array is used for imaging and therapeutic applications because of their...

This thesis report contains two papers. The first paper is a literature study on mechanisms, smart actuated materials and controllable joints. In this paper, several smart materials are identified and it is discussed how they can be embedded in different mechanisms. From this paper, it is concluded that fast-response smart material twisting...

Additive manufacturing of sensors and actuators together with structural materials and electronics will make it possible to fabricate innovative system designs that are overly laborious to realise with conventional methods. While printing of the structural materials and electronics are advancing fast, the additive manufacturing methods for...

Multi-layer ferroelectrets consisting of fluoroethylenepropylene (FEP) copolymer and open-porous expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE) films exhibit stable internal electret charges, high piezoelectric coefficients and heat resistance, making them promising candidates for wearable sensors or nanogenerators in body-area networks. Here,...

Engineering structures, such as bridges, wind turbines, airplanes, ships, buildings, and offshore platforms, often experience uncertain dynamic loadings due to environmental factors and operational conditions. The lack of knowledge about the load spectrum for these structures poses challenges in terms of design and can lead to either over...

Vagus nerve stimulation serves as an approach to manage drug-resistant epilepsy. Focused ultrasound stands out as a unique tool, offering a non-invasive modality for VNS. With its excellent depth of penetration and sub-millimeter focusing capabilities in soft tissue, ultrasound allows for precise targeting of the vagus nerve without the need for...

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....

Imagery collected from space provides very useful information about our planet. Today there are many Earth Observation satellites in orbit which allow us to collect information which is used for environmental monitoring, response to catastrophes, surveillance and security, urban planning, economic analysis and many other applications. Thus,...

Endoscopic instruments are integral components of minimally invasive procedures, widely used for diagnoses and treatment of diseases. When navigating the endoscope, it should experience a minimum of friction, while an increase in friction is beneficial for performing the medical procedure. Friction can be reduced by squeeze film levitation,...

In this work, we investigated the piezoelectric properties of BiFeO3-rich (1 − (y + x)) BiFeO3–y PbTiO3–x SrTiO3 (0.1 ≤ x ≤ 0.35; 0.1 ≤ y ≤ 0.3) bulk piezoceramics, as this system could potentially lead to the development of bulk piezoelectric ceramics that are suitable for high-temperature applications (>200 °C). Samples with various levels...

Under in-plane compressive load conditions, the growth of a delamination initially induced by an impact can be followed by a fast growth after a threshold level, which leads to a catastrophic failure in composite structures. To avoid reaching this critical level, it is essential to uncover the delamination size and growth pattern in real time....
