INVESTIGATION OF MULTIPHASE MANUFACTURING PROCESSES FOR POLYMERIC MICRO-LENSES AND LENS ARRAYS
Micro-lenses, as well as micro-lens arrays, have been widely used and attracted attention in miniature optical systems in recent decades. However, the fabrication methods for micro-lenses and lens arrays are limited. In ...
MULTISCALE MODELING AND SIMULATION OF THE MECHANICAL BEHAVIOR OF THE DUAL PHASE STEELS: PARAMETRIC STUDY AND MICROSTRUCTURE OPTIMIZATION
The goal of this thesis is to investigate the relationship between microstructure properties and mechanical properties of dual phase (DP) steels to design advanced materials for automotive applications. In this research, ...
Atomistic Simulations of Protein Conformational Changes: Biological and Engineering Applications
Proteins are large bio-molecules exist in all living organisms consist of amino acids. Molecular interactions result in a hierarchy of protein structures essential to biological functionalities. In this thesis, through ...
CHARACTERIZING DISSOLVED GASES IN CRYOGENIC LIQUID FUELS
Pressure-Density-Temperature-Composition (PρT-x) measurements of cryogenic fuel mixtures are a historical challenge due to the difficulties of maintaining cryogenic temperatures and precision isolation of a mixture sample. ...
CAPILLARY FLOW OF LIQUID METALS IN BRAZING
Capillary flow is driven or controlled by capillary forces, exerted at the triple line where the fluid phases meet the solid boundary. Phase field (PF) models naturally accommodate diffusive triple line motion with variable ...
Numerical Modeling of Multi-Surface Planing Hull Hydrodynamics Using Source-Based Boundary Element Method
A source-based boundary element method (BEM) built on the potential flow theory is developed to study hydrodynamic characteristics of multi-surface planing hulls. Initially, both 2D and 3D numerical models are implemented ...
