Damage Modes of Carbon Nanotubes embedded in epoxy-resin polymeric material

Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) have extraordinary mechanical, electrical, optical and thermal properties closely related to their shape and deformation, creating a wide potential of applications. However, enough investigation has not been done to study multi-modal deformation of individual CNT suspended in polymeric material. The research team is devoted to study present literature, while also prepare polymer […]

Proposed Enhancements to Pavement ME Design: Improved Consideration of the Influence of Subgrade Soils Susceptible to Shrink/Swell on Pavement Performance

A hypothesis has been put forward that the seasonal variation in moisture demands of vegetation growing in the vicinity of the pavement has adverse effects on the subgrade through shrink/swell of expansive clays leading to pavement distress. The shrink/swell cycle is predominantly driven by suction pressures either from the soils or nearby vegetation. The soils […]

Regression analysis of lithium-ion battery degradation data

The focus of this research is to carry out regression analysis to discover the factors that significantly contribute to the life cycle of the lithium-ion cells using the degradation data. The research was conducted by investigating the batchwise degradation model of these cells which concludes that the degradation of the cells starts slowly and accelerates […]

Needle Tracking System

The motivation for the project is to design a method for tracking a needle, steered by permanent magnets, inside the human body while performing targeted drug delivery. A small tube will trail the needle while it makes its way to a tumor sight and is also used as part of the tracking method. By knowing […]

Lizard Inspired Tube Inspection Robot

The environmental conditions within the boiler tube can be highly aggressive, which can alter the microstructure of tubing. Electromagnetic sensors have the capability to scan through these tubes and detect these changes at early stages. In this work a Lizard Inspired Robot with sensors embedded in its fingers is being developed for boiler tube inspection. […]

Study of Exfoliation Steps for Copper 2D MOFs

2D MOFs (metal organic frameworks) have shown promise in applications such as separation, catalysis, and medicine due to their tailorable structure and function, a result of high aspect ratios. This study aims to examine the exfoliation procedure of CuBDC MOFs under various tip sonicator conditions. Results have shown that sonication time and power are the […]
