  1. 1. On the mechanics of actin and intermediate filament networks and their contribution to cellular mechanics

    Author : Björn Fallqvist; Kroon Martin; Peter McHugh; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; actin; cell; mechanical; constitutive; intermediate; continuum; constitutive; Solid Mechanics; Hållfasthetslära;

    Abstract : The mechanical behaviour of cells is essential in ensuring continued physiological function, and deficiencies therein can result in a variety of diseases. Also, altered mechanical response of cells can in certain cases be an indicator of a diseased state, and even actively promoting progression of pathology. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling of compaction of metal powder and damage accum ulation due to fatigue in powder materials

    Author : Joakim Cedergren; Mekanik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; hydraulik; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; Maskinteknik; hydraulics; Mechanical engineering; friction; FEM; numerical modelling; continuum mechanics; fatigue loading; powder compaction; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering;

    Abstract : This thesis addresses powder manufactured (P/M) components, with special attention to the compaction process and to the sensitivity to damage accumulation due to fatigue within powder compacted specimens. Three dimensional simulations of the compaction process have been performed, using an explicit dynamic dilatant finite strain finite element code supplemented with the effects from contact friction within the die, modelled by Coulomb friction.

  4. 4. Realistic Package Opening Simulations : An Experimental Mechanics and Physics Based Approach

    Author : Eskil Andreasson; Blekinge Tekniska Högskola; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polymer; aluminium foil; semi-crystalline; progressive damage; Abaqus;

    Abstract : A finite element modeling strategy targeting package opening simulations is the final goal with this work. The developed simulation model will be used to proactively predict the opening compatibility early in the development process of a new opening device and/or a new packaging material. READ MORE
