Progress in Laser powder bed fusion manufacturing has led to greater use of Additive Manufacturing in combustion chambers/nozzles. This allows for the creation of more intricate and efficient solutions, but generates the need for a better understanding of how surface roughness in micro-channels used for engine cooling relates to build angle and...

Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs) are a class of metallic multi-functional materials which possess sensing and actuation capabilities, thanks to their unique ability to couple thermal and mechanical fields. NiTi-based Shape Memory Alloys exhibit properties which guarantee their high performance in adverse environments and, with the added benefit of two...

Electrovibration offers potential to enrich virtual touch experiences with authentic tactile sensations on touchscreens. In controlled environments, responses to tactile stimuli may be anticipated, yet this predictability becomes uncertain in unconstrained settings due to dynamic factors like varied applied force, finger scanning speed, and...

Awe, the feeling of encountering something greater or more powerful, has been explored in design and the arts. However, the potential of creating awe through the interplay of light and textiles remains underexplored. While the possibilities are vast, the precise tuning of their respective qualities to elicit a sense of awe over time have yet to...

The phenomenon of one element moving and progressively overlaying another is common in nature, such as waves swashing and backwashing, or eyelids moving over eyeballs while blinking. Folding Texture, which was proposed by Thorben, can simulate this texture “folding” visual effect in real-time without changing geometry.<br/>However, to date, no...

After an earthquake, a rapid identification of the damaged building stock is crucial to prioritise rescue operations, ensure primary services to the most affected regions and support reconstruction. Whilst in-situ reconnaissance missions provide invaluable data on the intensity and distribution of earthquake-induced structural damage, the...

Thin-film silicon technology creates electricity out of micrometer thick silicon absorber layers, which makes this technology less material heavy compared to classic crystalline technology. This advantage can be further exploited with the transition towards flexible thin-film technology, where the non-modular cost can be further reduced compared...

inPhocal, a startup company specialized in laser marking, developed a novel optical module to make the depth of focus more than 50mm, and wants to replace ink marking by this laser marking system in the production line when marking information on products. Distortion will always happen when marking 2D patterns onto 3D objects with laser, so...

Heemskerk, Robert (author)
In dangerous environments, teleoperation is needed to enable humans to execute tasks remotely. To assist in these tasks, haptic teleoperation systems provide the human operator with the sense of touch of the telerobot. One way to provide this sense of touch is through high-frequency vibration feedback. State-of-the-art solutions generally rely...

This work investigates the role of grain size and recrystallization texture in the corrosion behavior of pure iron in 0.1 M sulfuric acid solution. Annealing heat treatment was applied to obtain samples with different average grain sizes (26, 53 and 87 µm). Optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction and electron backscatter diffraction techniques...

We introduce a novel deep learning-based framework to interpret 3D urban scenes represented as textured meshes. Based on the observation that object boundaries typically align with the boundaries of planar regions, our framework achieves semantic segmentation in two steps: planarity-sensible over-segmentation followed by semantic...

Polycrystalline boron-doped diamond (BDD) films were surface nanotextured by femtosecond pulsed laser irradiation (100 fs duration, 800 nm wavelength, 1.44 J cm<sup>−2</sup> single pulse fluence) to analyse the evolution of induced alterations on the surface morphology and structural properties. The aim was to identify the occurrence of laser...

The ever-emerging mobile market induced a blooming interest in stylus-based interactions. Most state-of-the-art styluses either provide no haptic feedback or only deliver one type of sensation, such as vibration or skin stretch. Improving these devices with display abilities of a palette of tactile feels can pave the way for rendering...

In a material under stress, grain boundaries may give rise to stress discontinuities. Stress localization is crucial to materials' behavior such as segregation, precipitation, and void nucleation. Here, the stress state at a grain boundary perpendicular to a uniaxial external stress is studied systematically. The grain boundary with the most...

A critical review of lab and field measurement methodologies, harmonization in measuring techniques, and modelling of skid resistance of asphalt concrete pavement have been provided. Although several past studies have provided literature review on general topics of skid resistance, to the best of the author's knowledge, none of them have...

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...

Remote reconnaissance missions are promising solutions for the assessment of earthquake-induced structural damage and cascading geological hazards. Space-borne remote sensing can complement in-field missions when safety and accessibility concerns limit post-earthquake operations on the ground. However, the implementation of remote sensing...

In the context of climate change and global warming, the attention on the environmental cost of pavements is increasing. To scientifically quantify the environmental cost of pavements, accurate prediction of rolling resistance and fuel consumption is important. In this paper, a comprehensive review on rolling resistance of asphalt pavements...

This work presents an improved gravimetric algorithm to derive reference soil moisture, with removal of some of the hypothesis on which its original expression was based, and addition of a new corrective term that takes into account the interdependence between temperature and non-unitary water density. The temperature correction term improves...
