There is a very popular fable, dating back to the early 1800s, about three little pigs that build their houses of different materials and a wolf that tries to catch them by blowing down their houses. From the three houses built from straws, sticks or bricks, only the house made out of bricks withstands the blow of the wolf. Although the moral of...

Constitutive modeling is the cornerstone of computational and structural mechanics. In a finite element analysis, the constitutive model is encoded in the material subroutine, a function that maps local strains onto stresses. This function is called within every finite element, at each integration point, within every time step, at each Newton...

This thesis investigates the ability of Bayesian EUCLID to retrieve a predictive approximate material model for the myocardium in the presence of heterogeneous deformation fields due to simulated biaxial stretch tests. The Holzapfel-Ogden material model is used as the ground-truth material model of the simulation, since it is capable of...

Golchin, A. (author)
In the serviceability lifespan of thermo-active geo-structures such as energy-piles, soils surrounding these structures are exposed to a combination of mechanical and thermal loads. These loads are often complex (including cycles) and, depending on the state of the soils, the response of the surrounding soil to these loads may differ. Since the...

The stability of rock engineering projects is tightly related to the mechanical behaviour of rock discontinuities. Although the mechanical behaviour of a discontinuity is often associated with shearing (sliding), experimental data have shown that it can be accompanied by more complex phenomena such as dilation and post-peak strength reduction....

Tailings dam failures are one of the most destructive phenomena in terms of the number of victims and the environmental impact generated. Over the years, different causes have been identified, with flow liquefaction being a prominent factor to consider when assessing the stability of tailings deposits. Due to the complex nature of these events,...

Numerical modelling in Geo-Engineering is used to solve complex problems by simulating, analysing, or predicting soil behaviour under certain loading and boundary conditions. The soil behaviour is simulated by constitutive models that describe the relationship between stresses and strains through a mathematical formulation. Model parameters are...

The comprehensive assessment of the deviatoric behaviour in peats is paramount in ensuring the resilience of soil structures. The understanding of this material is riddled with intricacies, given its highly complex fabric, which includes organic matter such as fibers. This thesis evaluates the capabilities of a recent constitutive model (JMC) to...

Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are advanced materials that consist of a ceramic matrix reinforced with a high-strength, high-stiffness material, such as carbon fibers. They offer excellent thermal and chemical stability while exhibiting low weight and exceptional mechanical properties. A novel CMC material is the C/C-SiC produced with 2/2...

High-strength steel (HSS) has higher strength but lower ductility than mild steel. The cross-section of the structural members may be reduced using HSS instead of mild steel, provided the buckling of elements does not govern the failure. The reduced member size benefits the environment and economy by means of less energy consumption, less carbon...

Element testing of soft soils is challenging due to the large strains attained in the pre-failure range. Besides the heterogeneity of natural samples, the set-up configuration is the main driving factor for non-homogenous response. Stress, strain and pore pressure non-uniformities induced by the loading system affect the observed behaviour and...

The stress–strain response of sintered silver nanoparticles (AgNP) materials is precisely characterized in order to adapt for numerical analysis and rational design of electronic packaging structures in this study. A framework of crystal plasticity finite element method (CPFEM) is established based on the mechanism of crystal plastic...

Cement-bentonite cut-off walls are commonly employed in geoenvironmental applications to limit ground water flow and pollutant transport. The wide diffusion of this artificial material in the current practice is not only due to its low permeability, but also to its simplicity of use. In this paper, experimental evidences about the role of...

As a promising technology for high-power and high-temperature power electronics packaging, nanocopper (nanoCu) paste sintering has recently received increasing attention as a die-attachment. The high-temperature deformation of sintered nanoCu paste and its underlying mechanisms challenge the reliability of high-power electronics packaging. In...

We propose an automated computational algorithm for simultaneous model selection and parameter identification for the hyperelastic mechanical characterization of biological tissue and validate it on experimental data stemming from human brain tissue specimens. Following the motive of the recently proposed computational framework EUCLID ...

Data assimilation methods have been implemented on a slope stability problem, and the performance of different constitutive models and data assimilation schemes has been investigated. In the first part, a data assimilation scheme called the ensemble Kalman filter (EnKF) is implemented using a finite element model (FEM) and its performance with...

We extend the scope of our recently developed approach for unsupervised automated discovery of material laws (denoted as EUCLID) to the general case of a material belonging to an unknown class of constitutive behavior. To this end, we leverage the theory of generalized standard materials, which encompasses a plethora of important constitutive...

A welded connection consists of three main material zones, the base material (BM), the heat-affect zone (HAZ), and the weld metal (WM). The strength of HAZ depends on the BM grade and manufacturing process, electrode grade, and welding parameters. Under certain conditions, HAZ has the lowest material strength, especially for high-strength...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

The two most common Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) plastics, isotactic polypropylene (iPP) and high density polyethylene (HDPE), differ in composition and mechanical behavior when compared to their virgin counterparts. This thesis focuses on understanding and modeling the mechanical performance of these two PCR plastics separately. Within this...
