The influence of the drainage regime on the installation and the response to vertical cyclic loading of suction caissons

Marc Stapelfeldt
Auf Suction-Caisson-Jackets gegründete Offshore-Windenergieanlagen übertragen Lasten durch einen vertikalen Druck-Zug-Mechanismus. Dieser Mechanismus ist unter Berücksichtigung zyklischer Lasten ein maßgebender Konstruktionsaspekt. Konstruktionsrichtlinien sind begrenzt und liefern lediglich grobe Schätzungen. Der derzeitige Mangel an Daten zum Tragverhalten von Suction-Caissons in Sand und geschichtetem Boden erfordert die Durchführung wissenschaftlicher Untersuchungen. Dies erfolgt durch numerische Berechnungen und Zentrifugenversuche in denen das Tragverhalten von Suction-Caissons unter vertikaler zyklischer Belastung betrachtet wird. Die Ergebnisse zeigen keine keinen systematischen Einfluss der Sauginstallation...

Counter-Current Suspension Extraction Process of Lignocellulose in Biorefineries to Reach Low Water Consumption, High Extraction Yields, and Extract Concentrations

Marc Conrad & Irina Smirnova
The processing of large quantities of water in biorefining processes can lead to immense costs for heating, evaporation, and wastewater disposal. These costs may prohibit the exploitation of alternative products, e.g., xylooligosaccharides from straw, which are regarded as too costly. A new counter-current extractions method is proposed that aims at low solvent (water) consumption, as well as high yields and extract concentrations. This process was evaluated with suspension extraction experiments with steam pretreated wheat straw...

Benedikt Kötter, Janina Mittelhaus, Johann Körbelin, Florian Bittner, Hans-Josef Endres & Bodo Fiedler
This study investigates the influence of load ratio and impact damage on the fatigue behaviour of high-performance carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) with areal fibre weights between 30 gsm and 360 gsm. For undamaged samples, the ultimate tensile and compressive strength, as well as the fatigue properties, are evaluated with regard to their layer thicknesses. The fatigue tests were performed under tension-tension (R=0.1), tension-compression (R=-0.5) and compression-compression (R=10) regime. The results are illustrated as a...

Connector-breaker games on random boards

Dennis Clemens, Laurin Kirsch & Yannick Mogge
The Maker-Breaker connectivity game on a complete graph Kn or on a random graph G ∼ Gn,p is well studied by now. Recently, London and Pluhár suggested a variant in which Maker always needs to choose her edges in such a way that her graph stays connected. It follows from their results that for this connected version of the game, the threshold bias on Kn and the threshold probability on G ∼ Gn,p for winning...

Metamodels for evaluating, calibrating and applying agent-based models : a review

Bruno Pietzsch, Sebastian Fiedler, Kai G. Mertens, Markus Richter, Cédric Scherer, Kirana Widyastuti, Marie-Christin Wimmler, Liubov Zakharova & Uta Berger
The recent advancement of agent-based modeling is characterized by higher demands on the pa-rameterization, evaluation and documentation of these computationally expensive models. Accordingly, there is also a growing request for “easy to go” applications just mimicking the input-output behavior of such mod-els. Metamodels are being increasingly used for these tasks. In this paper, we provide an overview of common metamodel types and the purposes of their usage in an agent-based modeling context. To guide modelers...

Model-based workflow for scale-up of process strategies developed in miniaturized bioreactor systems

Lukas Arndt, Vincent Wiegmann, Kim Beatrice Kuchemüller, Frank Baganz, Ralf Pörtner & Johannes Möller
Miniaturized bioreactor (MBR) systems are routinely used in the development of mammalian cell culture processes. However, scale-up of process strategies obtained in MBR- to larger scale is challenging due to mainly non-holistic scale-up approaches. In this study, a model-based workflow is introduced to quantify differences in the process dynamics between bioreactor scales and thus enable a more knowledge-driven scale-up. The workflow is applied to two case studies with antibody-producing Chinese hamster ovary cell lines. With...

A strategy for dimensionality reduction and data analysis applied to microstructure–property relationships of nanoporous metals

Norbert Huber
Nanoporous metals, with their complex microstructure, represent an ideal candidate for the development of methods that combine physics, data, and machine learning. The preparation of nanporous metals via dealloying allows for tuning of the microstructure and macroscopic mechanical properties within a large design space, dependent on the chosen dealloying conditions. Specifically, it is possible to define the solid fraction, ligament size, and connectivity density within a large range. These microstructural parameters have a large impact...

This study focuses on the oxidation of five selected TrOCs in column experiments simulating soil aquifer treatment (SAT) integrated with Fenton-like reaction using granular ferric hydroxide (GFH) as a catalyst. In order to determine the effectiveness of removing TrOCs by water through this approach, experiments were carried out with ultrapure water...

Critical thresholds for mode-coupling instability in viscoelastic sliding contacts

Antonio Papangelo, Carmine Putignano & Norbert Hoffmann
Mode-coupling instabilities are known to trigger self-excited vibrations in sliding contacts. Here, the conditions for mode-coupling (or “flutter”) instability in the contact between a spherical oscillator and a moving viscoelastic substrate are studied. The work extends the classical 2-Degrees-Of-Freedom conveyor belt model and accounts for viscoelastic dissipation in the substrate, adhesive friction at the interface and nonlinear normal contact stiffness as derived from numerical simulations based on a boundary element method capable of accounting for...

As a result of the prevailing megatrends, many companies are diversifying their product program further and further. Additional product variants are being developed in order to implement the increasing variety of offers. However, these variants increase the complexity within the company. The development of variety-oriented product structures is one way to counteract this increasing complexity. In this contribution, we will show how variety-oriented product structures can be developed with the help of the Design for...

Direct writing of colloidal suspensions onto inclined surfaces: optimizing dispense volume for homogeneous structures

Benedikt Winhard, Stefanie Haugg, Robert H. Blick, Gerold A. Schneider & Kaline Pagnan Furlan
Hypothesis: A process to fabricate structures on inclined substrates has the potential to yield novel applications for colloidal-based structures. However, for conventional techniques, besides the coffee ring effect (CRE), anisotropic particle deposition along the inclination direction (IE) is expected to occur. We hypothesize that both effects can be inhibited by reducing the dispense volume during printing by direct writing. Experiments: We combined an additive manufacturing technique, namely direct writing, with colloidal assembly (AMCA) for an...
