(2017-12-11)With offshore wind farms gaining substantial momentum in recent years, 2-bladed turbines (2BT) are increasingly becoming a viable alternative to 3-bladed counterparts (3BT). In this wind tunnel study, model wind farms with ...
(2017-12-08)The correlation between the evolution of crystallite orientation in aramid fibers during loading and their mechanical and failure behavior were investigated. Three types of as-spun aramid fibers and a heat-treated type ...
(2017-12-04)Controlling stress waves during impact beyond merely dissipating their energy through material fracture, fragmentation, yielding etc., has been a significant focus of research in recent years. Materials exhibiting stress ...
Observing and modelling the legless jumping mechanism of click beetles for bio-inspired robotic design (2017-12-15)Click beetles (Coleoptera: Elateridae) have evolved a unique jumping mechanism to right themselves when on their dorsal side without using their legs or any other appendages. This work describes and analyzes the stages of ...
(2017-12-15)This thesis presents the study of an advanced non-equilibrium model for state-specific chemical kinetics based on method of moments. The focus of this project is on the rovibrational chemical kinetics of the N2-N system. ...
