In this work, the influence of a layer of glass fiber mat (GFM) inserted in a bi-material bonded joint interface is investigated as a toughening mechanism to improve the fracture performance of bonded structures. Composite-to-metal bonded specimens were manufactured by hand lay-up using two different consolidation processes: at room pressure...

Due to the presence of a monopile in a turbulent flow swirling vortices, known as horseshoe vortices, can form upstream of the structure near the cylinder-bed junction. Those vortices then travel downstream of the cylinder as they are being dragged along with the current. The horseshoe vortices can scoop up bed material surrounding the cylinder,...

This paper reports on an experimental study of the effects of surface roughness on the flow and heat transfer in cubical Rayleigh-Bénard convection cells for Rayleigh numbers between 10<sup>7</sup> and 10<sup>10</sup>. In the rough cells the top and bottom surfaces are equipped with square arrays of copper cubes. In line with other studies,...

Poroelastic fluid-structure interaction models were coupled to experimental data to determine the effects of biofilm spatial distribution of mechanical and hydraulic properties on the biofilm hydraulic resistance and compressibility in membrane filtration processes. Biofilms were cultivated on ultrafiltration membranes for 20 and 30 days...

A better understanding of the wear mechanism of materials is essential to selecting suitable materials to prolong service time and reduce costs. Wear resistance is not an intrinsic material property but a response to a system including multiples parameters determined by the material, the counter body, the load condition, and the environment....

Since the expiration of the FDM printing patent by Stratasys in 2009, Fused Deposition Modeling(FDM) printing has taken a large step towards accessible consumer 3D printing. Also, more knowledge is sought in the process of FDM printing and optimizing quality as the layer by layer deposition inevitable results in poor surface quality. This study...

This master thesis investigates the effect of surface morphology of Selectively Laser Melted Ti-6Al-4V on fatigue performance. The literature study performed here iden- tifies roughness as one of three major causes for the decreased performance of the additive manufactured alloys (along side porosity and residual stresses). In order to eliminate...

Laser speckle analysis is a very powerful method with various existing applications, including biomedical diagnostics. The majority of the speckle applications are based on analysis of dependence of scattered light intensity distribution from sizes of the scattereres. We propose a numerical model of speckle formation in reflected light in one...

Van Spengen, W.M. (author)
In this paper a model is presented that describes the distribution of adhesion values typically experimentally observed for different MEMS devices that have been fabricated in the same way. This spread is attributed to the fact that different devices differ in the details of their surface roughness, even if these surface roughnesses are modeled...

Centrifugal compressors form an integral part of automotive turbochargers. Strict emission regulations and increased engine downsizing in the automotive industry are pushing the turbocharger centrifugal compressors to provide the charged air at very lower mass flow rates. However, at low mass flow rates, the operation and application of...

The meso-scale surface roughness of piezoelectric fiber composites can be manipulated by applying an electric field to a piezocomposite with a polished surface. In the absence of an applied voltage, the tips of the embedded piezoelectric ceramic fibers are below the surface of the piezocomposite and a silicon wafer counter surface rests solely...

Surface roughness of the existing concrete substrate was considered to have the greatest impact on the bond strength in repair systems. However, the influence of this parameter has been subject for debates in recent years. The effect of concrete surface roughness is not quite clear, nor there exist a clear relation between the surface roughness...

TiO2 is an interesting and promising material for micro-/nanoelectromechanical systems (MEMS/NEMS). For high performance and reliable MEMS/NEMS, optimization of the optical characteristics, mechanical stress, and especially surface smoothness of TiO2 is required. To overcome the roughness issue of the TiO2 films due to crystallization during...

In 2005 the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) published its first version of the Offshore Wind Atlas of the Dutch part of the North Sea [3]. This version has been updated and improved using longer time series and another approach for the calculation of the roughness of the sea surface. In contradiction to other Wind Atlases which...

The surface roughness evolution of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) films has been studied using in situ spectroscopic ellipsometry for a temperature range of 150–400?°C. The effect of external rf substrate biasing on the coalescence phase is discussed and a removal/densification of a hydrogen-rich layer is suggested to explain the...

We have developed a fabrication process for incorporating a gate electrode into suspended single-walled carbon nanotube structures for scanning tunneling spectroscopy studies. The nanotubes are synthesized by chemical vapor deposition directly on a metal surface. The high temperature (800?°C) involved in the growth process poses challenging...

Flight simulation fatigue growth tests were done on 1.6 mm thick sheets of the damage tolerant aluminium-lithium (Al-Li) alloys 2091-T84 and 8090-T81 in comparison with the industry standard conventional damage tolerant alloy 2024-T3. The flight simulation load spectrum, the gust spectrum MINITWIST, was used in four versions: untruncated,...
