Active materials are a type of material that can respond to external stimuli and change their physical properties as a response. Neutrally stable compliant mechanisms are a class of compliant mechanisms that use the flexibility of their members to deform and maintain that deformed configuration without requiring external work. In order to make a...

This paper aims to provide a systematical review of the available printing strategies, sustainable cementitious materials and characterization methods for extrusion-based 3D concrete printing (3DCP). The printing strategies, consisting of printing setup, process, and material requirements, were summarized initially. In the material aspect,...

Objective: Plaque rupture in atherosclerotic carotid arteries is a main cause of ischemic stroke and it is correlated with high plaque stresses. Hence, analyzing stress patterns is essential for plaque specific rupture risk assessment. However, the critical information of the multicomponent material properties of atherosclerotic carotid...

To date, several different structural representations of masonry are available for use in the numerical and analytical assessment methods, each calling for a distinct level of refinement regarding the material input. To determine material properties, in terms of strength, stiffness, and toughness under compression, bending, and shear loading,...

In this paper, a series of experiments were conducted to systematically and quantitively explore the effects of control factors on the early age properties, i.e., workability and strength of slag and fly ash-based alkali-activated paste (BFS/FA-AAP). The control factors on the workability (flowability and setting time) of BFS/FA-AAP include...

Material Extrusion (MEX) systems with dual-material capability can unlock interesting applications where flexible and rigid materials are combined. When chemically incompatible materials are concerned the adhesion between the two might be insufficient. Therefore researchers typically rely on dovetail type interlocking geometries in order to...

Multi-Material Additive Manufacturing (MMAM) is an emerging manufacturing approach that is gaining interest in architecture and construction as an expansion of Additive Manufacturing. Hereby, different materials or material properties are combined in a single additive process in order to create objects that are composed of multiple materials....

This paper investigates the mechanisms by which flow-permeable materials provide noise reduction in an installed jet configuration. Numerical simulations are carried out with a flat plate placed in the near field of a single-stream subsonic jet (M<sub>a</sub>=0.3 and M<sub>a</sub>=0.5). The trailing-edge region of the plate is replaced by...

To date, the potential development of 3D laser scanning has enabled the capture of high-quality and high-precision reality-based datasets for both research and industry. In particular, Terrestrial Laser Scanning (TLS) technology has played a key role in the documentation of cultural heritage. In the existing literature, the geometric properties...

Prysmian Netherlands as a cable producer uses a cable drum to deliver products to their customers. However, these customers do not always participate in returning this returnable packaging material (RPM). Customer willingness and reverse supply chain (RSC) visibility are mentioned as the main contributors. The study aims to develop improvement...

In this thesis we describe three results of the interaction between WS2 and light: photoluminescence, the formation of exciton-polaritons and Raman scattering. The chirality of the photoluminescence interaction between WS2 and light opens the way for applictions in nanophotonics and specifically valleytronics, the field of interacting with and...

Filamentous fungi grow large networks of biomass with minimal energy input. This biomass consists of polysaccharide-based filamentous networks and adherent extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). Recent reports show that this biomass can be formed into plastic-like thin film materials. Further, non-filamentous fungi have been applied as living...

The material point method (MPM) is gaining increasing amounts of attention due to its capacity to solve geotechnical problems involving large-deformations. While some problems require dynamic analysis, simulating the (infinite) continuous domain using typical Dirichlet (fixed) boundary conditions induce spurious reflections causing (1)...

The Linear Economy currently follows the Take - Make – Dispose model. This paradigm is based on the consumption of resources rather than the preservation of their value. If this model remains dominant, it will lead to material scarcity, thereby increasing materials prices. The linear economy has a negative effect on nature as this model creates...

Tm<sup>2+</sup>-doped halides exhibit excellent properties for use in Luminescence Solar Concentrator (LSC) applications. Such LSCs consist of a glass waveguide with small Copper-Indium- Selenide (CIS) solar cells attached to its edges. The waveguide contains a luminescent coating based on a Tm<sup>2+</sup>-doped halide, whose 4f125d1 absorption...

Functional gradients in hard-soft interfaces are abundant in nature, and we often mimic them to create strong and tough composites. A powerful tool for the designs and fabrication of biomimetic composites is voxel-based multi-material 3D printing. Earlier researches mainly focused on using this technique in the creation of gradients based on...

Piezoelectric materials have the ability to convert mechanical to electrical energy (direct effect) and vice versa. They are readily used in the aerospace, automobile, telecommunication industry etc. as both sensors and actuators. For this work the focus is on the sensor application, which utilizes the direct piezoelectric effect. With the...
