This thesis presents the design and experimental evaluation of an in-line, active ultrasound, condition monitoring setup for the detection of contamination in offshore bearing grease. This process is divided into three distinct research steps. First of all, the influences that affect ultrasound propagation through a bearing grease sample have...

Mammadov, Ilkin (author)
The main bearing is a critical wind turbine drivetrain component, and its failure can cause the turbine shutdown and expensive repair. As the main bearing degrades, its temperature increases, indicating health deterioration of the component. Various methods proposed in the literature employ physics-based normal behavior models (NBMs) using...

Scour leads to the loss of soil around monopile foundations for offshore wind turbines, which affects their structural safety. In this paper, the effect of scour on the lateral behaviour of monopiles was extensively investigated using finite element analysis, and calibration and comparison were undertaken using centrifuge tests. Piles with three...

Conventional hydrostatic bearings are not suited to use on surfaces with changing curvature which limits their applicability. To improve on this, deformable hydrostatic bearings are currently being researched. The goal of this work is to develop hydrostatic bearings with a single fluid supply that work for sinusoidal counter surfaces. <br/><br/...

As high pointing accuracy spacecraft are being subjected to more stringent requirements on their micro-vibration environment, the reduction and mitigation of these disturbances has become of great importance. The reaction wheel assembly significantly impacts this environment, and as such improvements in bearing technologies have the greatest...

Air bearings are a vital component to high tech machines and have been in widespread use since the 1960s. They provide near frictionless motion, have high stiffness and a near infinite lifetime. When looking at existing literature the influence of the porosity on the dynamic characteristics has not been researched in depth. Especially when...

This research-through-design explores 3D knitting for load-bearing, transformable structures using a Material-Driven Design approach. 3D knitting is a low-waste textile production method that allows for highly adaptable designs and an iterative design process. Current literature is studied in various domains, exhibiting the knowledge gap on...

Nanoimprinting is a manufacturing method to replicate micro- and nanotextures on large-area substrates with ultraviolet-curable resins. Significant potential of large-area nanopatterning lies in its capacity to greatly enhance the performance of an abundance of devices and foster the creation of cutting-edge products. However, current large-area...

Highly-loaded low-speed roller bearings form crucial connections in offshore structures, such as heavy-lifting vessels, single-point mooring systems, and wind turbines. In order to safeguard the integrity and reliability of these assets and their operations, a quantitative methodology for condition monitoring of the bearings can be of...

The corrosion of bearing steel often leads to accelerated damage and loss of properties that condition their service life. This damage is further exacerbated with the absorption of hydrogen into the material, generated from corrosion reactions happening at the surface. A remanufacturing process is proposed to recover the operating capabilities...

Juch, Wieland (author)
Hydrostatic bearings are typically designed to operate on flat, parallel surfaces, but a flexible hydrostatic bearing that can adapt to uneven smooth surfaces would have broader applications. This thesis focuses on the challenges of implementing the whiffletree concept to support a large, deformable hydrostatic bearing on wavy surfaces, which...

Silicon wafers and solar cells are delicate components used in the semiconductor industries and energy industries. Handling and transportation can easily damage these components. Conventional handling methods with mechanical contact can cause various damages to these delicate surfaces. Air bearings can provide a solution by enabling an almost...

This article presents an approach to identify naturally developed damage in low-speed bearings using waveform-similarity-based clustering of acoustic emissions (AEs) under fatigue loading. The approach is motivated by the notation that each recorded AE signal from a particular damage is defined by the convolution of the source signal, transfer...

Container glass is omnipresent and reuse can be observed all around the world. It can even be reused for the construction of structural components for buildings of which several examples exist around the world. However, research on the reuse of glass for structural components seems lacking. Therefore, this paper investigates the potential of...

Despite promising clinical results in osteochondral defect repair, a recently developed bi-layered collagen/collagen-magnesium-hydroxyapatite scaffold has demonstrated less optimal subchondral bone repair. This study aimed to improve the bone repair potential of this scaffold by adsorbing bone morphogenetic protein 2 (BMP-2) and/or platelet...

The microstructure of a damaged bearing from the field was characterized in this work with the intention to better understand microstructural features behind formation of White Etching Cracks (WEC) in bearings. Microstructural characterization of the altered white etching area (WEA) involved conventional electron backscattered diffraction ...

Most of the bridges in Europe countries are now approaching their design life. Therefore, at present crucial is the choice of the most suitable retrofitting solution taking the current design standards into account. From an economic point of view the costs related to the foundations adaptation are not negligible at all, even because design...

This paper aims to investigate the combined effects of working condition and structural parameters of groove texture on the dynamic characteristics, stability and unbalance response of a water-lubricated hydrodynamic bearing–rotor system to avoid instability and excessive vibration of the rotor. The Navier–Stokes equation, standard K-ε model...

Damage in bearings is closely associated with the presence of microstructural alterations, known as white etching areas (WEAs) and white etching cracks (WECs). One of the main reasons for the creation of these microstructural alterations is the presence of defects in the material, such as non-metallic inclusions. Manganese sulfides and...
