Developing an effective blade structural health monitoring (SHM) system is important for the wind energy industry. This has challenged the scientific communities for years, and still, the problem has not been solved. This research aims to find a solution to this problem and provide a basis for further research in this field. The failure rate and...

Ice accumulation on aircraft surfaces is a prevalent issue, and icephobic coating strategies can be implemented to assist in the removal of or ice on an aircraft. However little is known regarding the effects of novel icephobic coatings and surfaces on ice adhesion strength, which is difficult to measure and quantify, and is typically reported...

Gelatine adhesives, also known as animal glues, are collagen-based water-soluble biopolymers derived from vertebrate connective tissues. One of the various fields in which gelatine adhesives are widely used is the conservation of cultural heritage such as decorated furniture and panel paintings. It is observed that, with time, the failure in...

Similar to wood, adhesives may exhibit duration of load effects. When loaded for longer periods of time, damage processes in the material may develop, eventually leading to failure. From wood research it is known that load level, temperature and relative humidity have an important influence on this behaviour. In general, higher stress levels,...

Birch bark tar was used extensively throughout human history. While later ceramic-based production technologies are known, prehistoric aceramic techniques leave little to no archaeological evidence. Experimental tar production attempts to fill this gap and suggest potential techniques. However, their archaeological relevance is unclear....

This study explores traditional adhesives using an ethnobiological approach within a multisocioecological context in Zambia. Through semi-structured interviews, videotaped demonstrations, and herbarium collections, we investigated the traditional adhesives people know and use, the flexibility of production processes, resource usage, and...

The transition of bacteria from an individualistic to a biofilm lifestyle profoundly alters their biology. During biofilm development, the bacterial cell-cell adhesions are a major determinant of initial microcolonies, which serve as kernels for the subsequent microscopic and mesoscopic structure of the biofilm, and determine the resulting...

Wind turbine blades carry the risk of impact damage during transportation, installation, and operation. Such impacts can cause levels of damage that can propagate throughout the structure compromising performance and safety. In this study, the effect of impact damage on fatigue damage propagation in test specimens representative of a spar cap...

Archaeological findings prove the appearance and use of birch bark tar since the Middle Palaeolithic. The production and use of birch bark tar and pine wood tar has overlapped since at least the late Neolithic, but probably for much longer. The reliable chemical identification of such archaeological tar residues can offer valuable insights...

Much research is conducted on the biomechanical properties of cells, particularly in cancer research. Cell stiffness and cell adhesion are two properties often studied, because they are important for the functioning of a cell. To study these properties, atomic force microscopy(AFM) is often used, using nanoindentation for stiffness analysis and...

Enceladus, one of the icy moons of Saturn, has been of major scientific interest since the Cassini-Huygens mission has explored the Saturn system. This is due to cryovolcanic geysers with complex organic molecules and other ingredients for life in it blasting into space from its subglacial warm ocean. The moon's harsh environmental conditions...

A Helically wrapped structure is a hollow pipe structure that is made from a metal strip and the overlapping interfaces are adhesively joined. It is yet unknown how to determine the quasi-static strength and predict the fatigue life of this structure. A method was developed to determine whether either the adherend or the adhesive is critical to...

This paper presents an extensive experimental and numerical study on the behavior of CFRP/Steel adhesively bonded double strap joints (DSJ). A total of 50 DSJ specimens were tested under static tensile loading. The digital image correlation (DIC) was used to measure the backface deformation. A total of six adhesives that feature different...

Using fiber-reinforced composite patches for repairing damaged structures made of metal or/and concrete is an interesting and widely available solution on the market using synthetic materials. These repairing patches are bonded on the structures’ surfaces to increase their strength against internal stresses, as well as protect them from external...

Understanding the relationship between the sensors’ outputs and the damage evolution within the joints is becoming increasingly crucial to improving structural health monitoring systems and collecting data to improve the joint’s design. Therefore, a study of the acoustic emission method associated with visual fracture evaluation was proposed to...

Spider silk is recognized for its exceptional mechanical properties and biocompatibility, making it a versatile platform for developing functional materials. In this study, a modular functionalization strategy for recombinant spider silk is presented using SpyTag/SpyCatcher chemistry, a prototype of genetically encoded click chemistry. The...

The use of the brittle adhesives commonly adopted in construction industry do not provide the best performance for steel structures. CFRP/Steel joint bonded with extremely tough adhesive achieve much higher strength and ductility. However, tough adhesives are not developed for the construction industry and their cost may question the...

Silk fibers combine good stiffness and strength with a very high strain to failure and are as such highly promising to realize composites with high impact resistance. It is shown that to realize this potential it is quite beneficial to employ matrix materials of high strain to failure, particularly thermoplastic matrices. High impact...

A time-domain finite element model is developed to study the transient rolling contact of a driving wheelset over a curved track with Low Adhesion Zones (LAZs) shorter than 1.0 m. LAZs on one rail, i.e., unilateral LAZs occurring more likely, is treated for a speed up to 500 km/h. Structural vibrations of wheelset are analyzed to explain the...

Gelatine adhesives aka ‘animal glues’ are water-soluble biopolymers used in historic objects such as wooden cabinets and panel paintings since ancient times. This paper investigates the correlations between microstructural features, namely triple helices, and macroscopic properties of four different types of gelatine adhesives, prevalently...
