THE DESIGN, MODELING, FABRICATION, AND CHARACTERIZATION OF AN EWOD ACUTATED MICROTHERMAL SWITCH
In this work, a MEMS microthermal switch was designed, modeled, fabricated, and characterized thermally and dynamically. The thermal switch is based on the bulk actuation of electrowetting on a dielectric (EWOD). The switch ...
CAPTURING, SHARING, AND DISCOVERING PRODUCT DATA AT A SEMANTIC LEVEL - MOVING FORWARD TO THE SEMANTIC WEB FOR ADVANCING THE ENGINEERING PRODUCT DESIGN PROCESS
Along with the greater productivity that CAD automation provides nowadays, the product data of engineering applications needs to be shared and managed efficiently to gain a competitive edge for the engineering product ...
FRACTURE OF LEAD-FREE SOLDER JOINTS FOR ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS: EFFECTS OF MATERIAL, PROCESSING AND LOADING CONDITIONS
During service, micro-cracks form inside solder joints making a microelectronic package highly prone to failure during a drop. Hence, the fracture behavior of solder joints under drop conditions at high strain rates and ...
INTERFACE MECHANICS OF LAYERED COMPOSITE BEAM-TYPE STRUCTURES
In this study, improved analytical models are developed to characterize interface behavior of layered composite beam-type structures. The mechanics models of the bonded interface with and without adhesive layer are ...
Orthotropic and Time-Dependent Moisture Diffusion Measurements in Polymer Matrix Composites Using Nuclear Reaction Analysis
Moisture plays a significant role in influencing the mechanical behavior and long-term durability of composites. The objective of this dissertation was to understand the basic concepts of moisture transport in polymeric ...
FABRICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF MEMS THERMAL INTERFACE MATERIALS
