Structural design for unconventional aircraft can be quite challenging and could undergo<br/>many iterations until a solution is found for all load-cases such as static sizing, stability and<br/>crashworthiness. Ultimately, all of the design aspect are integrated in the earliest design<br/>changes for which Topology Optimization (TO) could...

Achilles tendinopathy (AT) is a common Achilles tendon injury, yet its exact cause and the factors influencing progression of individuals remain unclear. Strain distribution is indicated to play a significant role in the progression, possibly linked to the twist of the subtendons. Pizzolato et al. (2020) proposed an integrated framework for...

Current service and installation activities for offshore wind turbines are carried out by jack-up vessels, which eliminate wave disturbances to a large extent. The use of these vessels imposes several disadvantages, including high operational costs and the limitation of operating in restricted water depths. An alternative is a crane mounted on a...

To address the increasing housing demand in Europe and simultaneously tackle the challenge of creating a more sustainable construction industry, timber modular buildings present an innovative solution. However, before multi-storey modular buildings become a widespread practice, various engineering challenges need to be addressed. Ensuring...

About 70 prestressed concrete T-beam bridges, constructed in the Netherlands between 1953–1977, are still in use today with many located in the main highway network. This type of bridge consists of prefabricated and prestressed T-shaped beams, with an integrated deck slab, cross-beams and transverse prestressing. Even if these bridges are well...

Reijers, Rico (author)
Numerous traffic bridges have been constructed over the last 150 years. Because bridges are commonly built based on an expected lifetime of 75 to 100 years, a large quantity of bridges are reaching the end of their design lifetime, or even are far overdue. To ensure these bridges remain operational without experiencing catastrophic failures,...

The currently available treatments for inner ear disorders often involve systemic drug administration, leading to suboptimal drug concentrations and side effects. Cochlear implants offer a potential solution by providing localized and sustained drug delivery to the cochlea. While the mechanical characterization of both the implants and their...

The computational analysis of nanophotonic devices is usually carried out via the standard finite element method (FEM). However, FEM requires meshes that are fitted to the devices’ boundaries, so making changes to the geometry (and thus the mesh) results in an inefficient process at best. Such an approach is therefore at odds when conducting...

This paper presents the work on six single-stringer specimens manufactured using the card-sliding technique with non-crimp fabrics and adopting a Double-Double (DD) stacking sequence. These specimens, representative of sub-structure level components, are used to investigate post-buckling and failure in aerospace structures. Two specimens...

This article describes a dataset used to calibrate a finite element model of a thick circular hollow section (CHS) with varying d/t (diameter to thickness) ratio under cyclic loading which may be used as a computational model validation benchmark by researchers working on similar problems in structural and mechanical engineering. The test...

Personalized treatment informed by computational models has the potential to markedly improve the outcome for patients with a type B aortic dissection. However, existing computational models of dissected walls significantly simplify the characteristic false lumen, tears and/or material behavior. Moreover, the patient-specific wall thickness...

Modeling the consolidation of fiber-reinforced thermoplastic composites at the part level presents a formidable computational challenge due to the multi-scale nature of the process. In this article, a method to bypass the multi-scale problem by homogenizing the micro scale and describing the medium with characteristic parameters is described....

3-D braided composites are a promising material for manufacturing tubular structures. However, a thorough understanding of their damage mechanisms under torsion is required to maximize their potential applications. The present work constructed a multiscale equivalent model, integrating mesoscopic and homogeneous structures to reveal torsional...
