  • Electromechanical Instability of Dielectric Elastomer Actuators With Active and Inactive Electric Regions اسفند ۲۸, ۱۳۹۷
    Electrically driven dielectric elastomers (DEs) suffer from an electromechanical instability (EMI) when the applied potential difference reaches a critical value. A majority of the past investigations address the mechanics of this operational instability by restricting the kinematics to homogeneous deformations. However, a DE membrane comprising both active and inactive electric regions undergoes inhomogeneous deformation, thus […]
  • Riccati Transfer Equations for Linear Multibody Systems with Indeterminate In-Span Conditions اسفند ۲۸, ۱۳۹۷
    The transfer matrix method for linear multibody systems is capable of providing precise solutions for the dynamics of various mechanical systems, but it may also suffer from numerical instability in some cases, where serial chains with a large number of mechanical elements are involved or high-frequency harmonic responses are computed. Combining such a transfer strategy […]
  • Nonlinear Buckling and Postbuckling of Shallow Arches With Vertical Elastic Supports اسفند ۲۵, ۱۳۹۷
    This paper presents an analytical method to investigate the effects of symmetric and asymmetric elastic supports on the nonlinear equilibria and buckling responses of shallow arches. It is found that arches with symmetric elastic supports can bifurcate into secondary paths with high-order symmetric modes. When a small asymmetry exists in the elastic supports, the equilibria […]
  • Controllable Propagation of Bending Waves in Wrinkled Films اسفند ۲۵, ۱۳۹۷
    Wrinkling is a common phenomenon in natural and engineering film structures. The wrinkles influence the geometry and dynamic response of these structures. In this work, we investigate the wrinkling of a stretched thin film containing engineered microstructures and its derived functionality on controlling the propagation of bending waves. The underlying mechanism is revealed and the […]
  • Effect of Partition on the Mechanical Behaviors of Soft Adhesive Layers اسفند ۲۵, ۱۳۹۷
    A soft adhesive layer bonded between two rigid substrates, which are being pulled apart, may exhibit diverse instability phenomena before failure, such as cavitation, fingering, and fringe instability. In this study, by subdividing the soft layers into different numbers of disconnected smaller parts, we achieve desired instability modes and mechanical responses of the layer. The […]
  • Tunable Contact of Epidermal Electronics With Skin Based on Ionic Polymer–Metal Composite Material اسفند ۲۵, ۱۳۹۷
    Epidermal electronics mounted on the body provides the robust and noninvasive interfaces to monitor the electrophysiological signals of human body. The contact characteristic of the epidermal electronics with the skin affects the accuracy of the measured signals. In this paper, ionic polymer–metal composite is used to regulate the interface force for the consistency of the […]
  • An Innovative Approach of Using Continuous Impedance-Graded Metallic Composite System for Attenuation of Stress Waves اسفند ۲۵, ۱۳۹۷
    This paper presents an innovative approach of stress attenuation through a continuous impedance-graded material system for high strain-rate events. High energetic dynamic events such as blasts and impact could cause stress waves—in the form of elastic, plastic, and shock—to propagate in a solid material. An impedance-graded composite is created by arranging different metallic alloys in […]

  • Flatness Control of the Crossbowed Hot Plate Using Cold Roller Leveling اسفند ۲۸, ۱۳۹۷
    A crossbow is one of the shape defects caused by width differences between the top and bottom plate surfaces. To improve the plate flatness, leveling must be performed to flatten the crossbowed plate prior to the second manufacturing process. Leveling is a process for minimizing shape defects and enhancing the internal stress uniformity in shape-critical […]
  • Investigation of the Machining Behavior of Ti6Al4V/TiC Composites During Conventional and Laser-Assisted Machining اسفند ۱۳, ۱۳۹۷
    Conventional machining of Ti6Al4V/TiC composites is a very difficult process, which exhibits a peculiar cutting force pattern where the thrust forces are higher than the tangential forces. This behavior results in rapid tool wear and consequently very short tool life. This study is concerned with describing the reasons for the attendant behavior using experimentally validated […]
  • A Guiding Framework for Microextrusion Additive Manufacturing اسفند ۱۱, ۱۳۹۷
    Although extrusion-based 3D printing processes have seen many successful applications at the macroscale, it has proven to be challenging for consistent, repeatable, and cost-effective printing at the microscale due to its dynamic complexities. To fully tap into the promise of microextrusion printing (µEP) of fabricating fine resolution features, it is critical to establish an understanding […]

  • Free-Form Design of Electrical Machine Rotor Cores for Production Using Additive Manufacturing اسفند ۲۲, ۱۳۹۷
    This work presents a finite element analysis-based, topology optimization (TO) methodology for the combined magnetostatic and structural design of electrical machine cores. Our methodology uses the Bi-directional Evolutionary Structural Optimization (BESO) heuristics to remove inefficient elements from a meshed model based on elemental energies. The algorithm improves the average torque density while maintaining structural integrity. […]
  • Experimental Investigation of the Implications of Model Granularity for Design Process Simulation اسفند ۲۲, ۱۳۹۷
    Determining a suitable level of description, or granularity, for a product or process model is not straightforward, especially since granularity can manifest in multiple ways, but it is important to capture important elements in the model without building models that are too large to understand. This article investigates the implications of model granularity choices by […]
  • Topology Optimization of Periodic Structures With Substructuring اسفند ۲۲, ۱۳۹۷
    Topology optimization of macroperiodic structures is traditionally realized by imposing periodic constraints on the global structure, which needs to solve a fully linear system. Therefore, it usually requires a huge computational cost and massive storage requirements with the mesh refinement. This paper presents an efficient topology optimization method for periodic structures with substructuring such that […]
  • Design and Optimization of Graded Cellular Structures With Triply Periodic Level Surface-Based Topological Shapes اسفند ۲۲, ۱۳۹۷
    Periodic cellular structures with excellent mechanical properties widely exist in nature. A generative design and optimization method for triply periodic level surface (TPLS)-based functionally graded cellular structures is developed in this work. In the proposed method, by controlling the density distribution, the designed TPLS-based cellular structures can achieve better structural or thermal performances without increasing […]

Nowadays, the main alternative to the use of rotation matrices, to represent rotations in ℝ3, is the use of Euler parameters arranged in […]
  • Controlling the Locomotion of Spherical Robots or Why BB-8 Works اسفند ۸, ۱۳۹۷
    Spherical robots have a wide range of self-propulsion mechanisms. Of particular interest in this paper are propulsion systems where wheels are placed in contact with the inner surface of the spherical shell of the robot. Here, locomotion is achieved by a combination of the actions of the motors along with the rolling constraints at the […]
  • Reconfigurability Analysis of a Class of Parallel Kinematics Machines اسفند ۸, ۱۳۹۷
    A novel parallel kinematics machine (PKM) stemming from the 3-SRU (spherical-revolute-universal) under-actuated joints topology is presented in this paper. The concept here proposed takes advantage of a reconfigurable universal joint obtained by locking, one at a time, different rotations of a spherical pair. Such local reconfiguration causes a slight, yet crucial, modification of the robot […]

  • Sliding Filament Joint Mechanism: Biomimetic Artificial Joint Mechanism for Artificial Skeletal Muscles اسفند ۸, ۱۳۹۷
    Soft linear actuators (SLAs) make linear displacement by shrinkage and relaxation like skeletal muscles, so they can be called as artificial skeletal muscles (ASMs). They deform their body to create displacement. However, the restoring force generated by the deformation of their soft body reduces the force available from the SLA. This actuation structure is a […]
