  1. 1. Vibro-acoustic modelling of anisotropic poroelastic materials characterisation of the anisotropic properties

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Christophe Van der Kelen; KTH.; KTH.; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : The present-day challenges in the transport industry, steered by the increasing environmental awareness, necessitate manufacturers to take measures to reduce emissions related to the movements of goods and humans. In particular, the measures aiming at a reduced mass or higher load capacity to increase fuel efficiency,  generally deteriorate the noise and vibration insulation properties of their products.

  2. 2. Finite Element Simulations of Biphasic Articular Cartilages With Localized Metal Implants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Universitetsservice US-AB

    Author : Krishnagoud Manda; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; finite element analysis; articular cartilage defects; knee joint; metal implant; poroelastic; biphasic; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Other engineering mechanics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Övrig teknisk mekanik;

    Abstract : Articular cartilage is a specialized connective soft tissue that resides onthe ends of long-bones, transfers the load smoothly between the bones in diarthrodialjoints by providing almost frictionless, wear resistant sliding surfacesduring joint articulation. Focal chondral or osteochondral defects in articularcartilage are common and show limited capacity for biological repair. READ MORE

    Abstract : In the context of interior noise reduction, the present work aims at proposing Finite Element (FE) solution strategies for interior structural-acoustic applications including 3D modelling of homogeneous and isotropic poroelastic materials, under timeharmonic excitations, and in the low frequency range. A model based on the Biot-Allard theory is used for the poroelastic materials, which is known to be very costly in terms of computational resources. READ MORE

    Author : Juan Pablo Parra Martinez; KTH.; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; poroelastic media; anisotropy; plane waves; multilayered systems; dynamics; acoustics; optimisation; matériaux poro-visco-élastique; anisotropie; ondes planes; panneaux multicouches; dynamique; acoustique; optimisation; Poroelastiska material; anisotropi; planvågor; flerskiktssystem; dynamik; akustik; optimering; Farkostteknik; Vehicle and Maritime Engineering;

    Abstract : The mechanical and acoustic anisotropy of media is a governing factor in the behaviour of multilayered systems including such media. The understanding of the mechanisms conditioning the dynamic behaviour of multilayered systems is of paramount importance. READ MORE
