Micromechanical resonators, which have become feasible due to advanced manufacturing techniques, have shown several interesting phenomena including mode coupling in a range of applications that span metrology and sensing. Conventional fabrication methods of these resonators have been used throughout the field. However, fabrication of...

Lightweight materials used for impact mitigation must be able to resist impact and absorb the maximum amount of energy from the impactor. Auxetic materials have the potential to achieve high resistance by drawing material into the impact zone and providing higher indentation and shear resistance. However, these materials must be artificially...

High computational costs are encountered in topology optimization problems of geometrically nonlinear structures since intensive use has to be made of incremental-iterative finite element simulations. To alleviate this computational intensity, reduced-order models (ROMs) are explored in this paper. The proposed method targets ROM bases...

In recent studies, selection criteria for lattice materials suitable for active shape-morphing have been composed. These criteria have directly resulted in the proposal of a lattice that is able to compete with the Kagome lattice, which in the literature is identified as a lattice material with optimal in-plane stiffness and shape-morphing...

In this paper, a micromechanical framework for modeling the rate-dependent response of unidirectional composites subjected to off-axis loading is introduced. The model is intended for a thin slice representative volume element that is oriented perpendicular to the reinforcement of the composite material. The testing conditions from a uniaxial...

The present paper deals with the buckling and post-buckling analysis of a multilayered composite reinforced panel. The panel, design for aeronautical applications, results in a complex stacking sequence, and the development of a refined model able to describe its geometrical nonlinear behavior is mandatory to avoid the usage of highly...

This paper presents a robust density-based topology optimization approach for synthesizing pressure-actuated compliant mechanisms. To ensure functionality under manufacturing inaccuracies, the robust or three-field formulation is employed, involving dilated, intermediate and eroded realizations of the design. Darcy's law in conjunction with a...

This paper explores buildability quantification of randomly meshed 3D printed concrete objects by considering structural failure by elastic buckling. The newly proposed model considers the most relevant printing parameters, including time-dependent material behaviors, printing velocity, localized damage and influence of sequential printing...

Increased traffic loads and ageing of concrete bridges and overpasses in the Netherlands make it necessary to reassess these existing structures. Consequently, the current condition and capacity of many concrete structures need to be evaluated. Residual capacity could be discovered during reassessments of concrete slabs due to a phenomenon...

In the past decade, MDO researchers have developed capabilities to simultaneously optimise the shape and internal structure of aircraft based on coupled high fidelity Computational Fluid Dynamics and Finite Element Analysis. However, to date the finite element methods used for the structural analysis are typically linear and are known to be...

This paper presents a novel model order reduction technique for 3D flexible multibody systems featuring nonlinear elastic behavior. We adopt the mean-axis floating frame approach in combination with an enhanced Rubin substructuring technique for the construction of the reduction basis. The standard Rubin reduction basis is augmented with the...

A new high-order model for in-plane vibrations of rotating rings is developed in this paper. The inner surface of the ring is connected to an immovable axis through an elastic foundation (distributed springs), whereas the outer surface is traction free. The developed model enables the dynamic analysis of the rings on stiff elastic foundation...

Dynamic analysis of large-size finite element models has been commonly applied by mechanical engineers to simulate the dynamic behavior of complex structures. The ever-increasing demand for both detailed and accurate simulation of complex structures forces mechanical engineers to pursue a balance between two conflicting goals during the...

Holtzer, Bart (author)
So far, structural topology optimization has been mainly focused on linear problems. Much less attention has been paid to geometrically nonlinear problems, although it has a lot of interesting applications. The objective of this work is to implement a method to solve topology optimization problems under finite displacements and rotations. The...

An effective reduction technique is presented for flexible multibody systems, for which the elastic deflection could not be considered small. We consider here the planar beam systems undergoing large elastic rotations, in the floating frame description. The proposed method enriches the classical linear reduction basis with modal derivatives...

This master thesis presents research into buckling of thin hyperboloid shells structures. This type of structure is typically applied as the large cooling towers at coal fired electricity plants. However, modelling cooling towers is not the objective of this research. The objective of this research is to understand the buckling behaviour of...

Model order reduction techniques are widely applied in the floating frame of reference. The use of linear vibration modes, however, is not applicable when the elastic deformations become finite. In this paper, the non-linear elastic formulation, where the higher-order terms will be included in the strain energy expression to consider the bending...

In high precision motion systems, rather flexible cable slabs provide electrical power and cooling liquid to moving stages. The positioning accuracy of free floating stages is defined by the disturbances action on it. So, it is of utmost importance to accurately quantify the disturbance forces of these cables. The mathematical model of such a...

In the field of computational physics and engineering, the introduction of computers opened a world of possibilities. The finite element method was developed in order to solve complex problems numerically. Over time, the method matured and structures in the field of engineering became more and more complex, resulting in large degree of freedom...

Thin-walled structures, when properly designed, possess a high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratio, and therefore are used as the primary components in some weight critical structural applications, such as aerospace and marine engineering. These structures are prone to be limited in their load carrying capability by buckling, while...
