Computational Modeling of Carbon Nanotube Turfs
Carbon nanotubes grown on a substrate form a turf - a complex structure of intertwined, mostly nominally vertical tubes, cross-linked by adhesive contact and few bracing tubes. The turfs are compliant and good thermal and ...
ANALYSIS AND MODELING OF THE PRODUCT STRUCTURE AND COMMUNITY STRUCTURE IN OPEN SOURCE PROCESSES
Open source product development refers to a paradigm where large numbers of participants collaborate in the form of communities to develop new products and services. The fundamental differences between traditional product ...
NUMERICAL MODELLING OF THERMOACOUSTIC HEAT PUMPS AND PRIME MOVERS WITH NO STACKS AND INTERMITTENT STACKS
Thermoacoustic systems with no stacks or intermittent stacks represent a promising alternative to conventional stack-based systems. There is theoretical and experimental evidence that such systems can perform more efficiently ...
FABRICATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF MEMS THERMAL INTERFACE MATERIALS
This work presents the fabrication and characterization of MEMS thermal interface materials. Different materials were used to fabricate and characterize different configurations of sample thermal interface materials. The ...
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 ...
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 ...
