MULTI-SCALE INVERTIGATION OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE MICROSTRUCTURE AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES IN DUAL PHASE STEELS
Dual phase steel alloys belong to the first generation of advanced high strength steels that are widely used in the automotive industry to form body structure and closure panels of vehicles. A deeper understanding of the ...
DISLOCATION-BASED MULTI-SCALE MODELING FOR SIZE-DEPENDENT PLASTICITY OF HETEROGENEOUS MATERIALS
The objective of this research is to investigate the plastic deformation of heterogeneous material with different microstructures including grain orientations, grain size effect, and grain spatial distributions etc., and ...
A maneuverability study on a wheeled bin management robot in tree fruit orchard environments
An important activity during harvesting is bin management, which traditionally requires heavy use of seasonal skilled labor. Due to increased labor cost and uncertainty with labor availability in recent years, tree fruit ...
Mechanical Design and Field Evaluation of a Robotic Apple Harvester
Every apple destined for the fresh market is picked by the human hand. Despite substantial research to develop robotic apple harvesters, there are no robotic systems commercially available. The highly unstructured orchard ...
CHARACTERIZATION OF Ti AND Co BASED BIOMATERIALS PROCESSED VIA LASER BASED ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING
Titanium and Cobalt based metallic materials are currently the most ideal materials for load-bearing metallic bio medical applications. However, the long term tribological degradation of these materials still remains a ...
A DISLOCATION-BASED MULTISCALE MODELING OF PLASTICITY AND CONTROLLING MECHANISMS
The objective of this research is to investigate the plastic deformation and its controlling mechanisms in order to model and predict the material microstructure either dislocation pileups as a feature of plasticity or ...
