    Supercritical CO2 technology in resource effective textile production of functional textiles2017Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Supercritical CO2 (SC-CO2) textile processing is a water-free technology with significant savings in energy, chemicals, and wastewater while producing high-quality products thereby creating new business opportunities. It is an attractive alternative to both water and organic solvent since it is inexpensive, essentially nontoxic, nonflammable, environmentally friendly and requires relatively low critical temperature 310c and pressure 7.38 Mpa which can easily be recaptured and recycled after use.

    Today supercritical CO2 dyeing of PET has come up to the commercial level. The Netherlands-based company, DyeCoo Textile Systems, was the first to launch commercial SC-CO2 dyeing system. Meanwhile, SC-CO2 is a resource efficient, flexible, and ecological textile production which could be a suitable technology for textile functionalization. However, there are limited studies on the potential use of this technology for the production of smart and functional textiles. Furthermore, unlike dyes, fundamental understanding of the solubility and transport (kinetics) properties of functional compounds is lacking.

    The aim of this research project is to develop sustainable functional and smart textile materials using SC-CO2 technology. It will focus on combined dyeing and functionalization (antimicrobial, medical/care, and flame retardant) of woven and knitted synthetic textiles using SC-CO2. Preliminary experiments have been conducted to develop antimicrobial polyester fabric in SC-CO2 and a promising result is found. Furthermore, characterization of the functionalized fabric (surface property, wettability), the release kinetics of active principles from textiles (Franz cell device, HPLC) and the skin physiology after the contact with a functionalized fabric (cutometer) will be investigated.

    Eco-designed functionalization of polyester fabric2017Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    There is an increased awareness of the textile dyeing and finishing sector’s high impact on the environment due to high water consumption, polluted wastewater, and inefficient use of energy. To reduce environmental impacts, researchers propose the use of dyes from natural sources. The purpose of using these is to impart new attributes to textiles without compromising on environmental sustainability. The attributes given to the textile can be color and/or other characteristics. A drawback however, is that the use of bio-sourced dyes is not free from environmental concerns. Thus, it becomes paramount to assess the environmental impacts from using them and improve the environmental profile, but studies on this topic are generally absent.

    The research presented in this thesis has included environmental impact assessment, using the life cycle assessment (LCA) tool, in the design process of a multifunctional polyester (PET) fabric using natural anthraquinones. By doing so an eco-design approach has been applied, with the intention to pave the way towards eco-sustainable bio-functionalization of textiles.

    The anthraquinones were obtained from the root extracts of the madder plant (Rubia tinctorum L.), referred to as madder dye. The research questions were therefore formulated related to the use of madder dye. Three research questions have been answered: (I) Can madder dye serve as a multifunctional species onto a PET woven fabric? (II) How does the environmental profile of the dyeing process of PET with madder dye look like, and how can it be improved? (III) What are the main challenges in using LCA to assess the environmental impacts of textile dyeing with plant-based dyes?

    It is concluded that there is a potential for the madder dye to serve as a multifunctional species onto PET. Based on the encouraging result, a recommendation for future work would be to focus on the durability of the functionalities presented and their improvement potential, both in exhaustion dyeing and pad-dyeing. LCA driven process optimization of the exhaustion dyeing enabled improvement in every impact category studied. However, several challenges have been identified which need to be overcome for the LCA to contribute to the sustainable use of multifunctional plant-based species in textile dyeing. The main challenges are the lack of available data at the research stage and the interdisciplinary nature of the research arena. It is envisaged that if these challenges are addressed, LCA can contribute towards sustainable bio-functionalization of textiles.

    Material- och tillverkningsteknikval för en stol åt Källemo2014Independent thesis Basic level (university diploma), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Detta projekt har pågått under sista terminen på maskiningenjörsprogrammet vid högskolan i Halmstad. Projektet har utförts av en student och tillsammans med företaget Källemo. Syftet med projektet har varit att studenten ska hitta och utvärdera ett lämpligt material åt en ny stol. Materialvalet skulle också kompletteras med en lämplig tillverkningsmetod. Stolen är designad av Pierre Sindre, SandellSandberg, och kommer att produceras och säljas av Källemo. Pierre Sindres ritningar och renderingar var underlaget som var utgångspunkt för projektet. Arbetet har inneburit att olika material har utvärderats och framförallt formpressad filt. Lämpligheten har testat genom liknande referensmöbler och fysiska tester. Bland annat har provbitar testat med enkla handtester. En dialog har också förts med leverantörer av material som haft mycket erfarenhet och kunnat bidra med tips och idéer.  Då projektet inte har varit ett typiskt konstruktionsprojekt har metoden utvecklats efterhand som olika resultat uppkommit. Detta har varit ett arbetssätt som har varit väldigt lärorikt för studenten och också väldigt tidseffektivt då ingen onödig tid har lagt på irrelevanta processer. Varje steg i arbetets gång har diskuterats med både uppdragsgivaren på företaget och två handledare som högskolan tillhandahållit. Veckomöten varje vecka har också bidragit till ett mycket tidseffektivt arbete där snedsteg tidigt kunnat upptäckas av de med mer erfarenhet. Dessa möten har varit avgörande för det goda resultatet som erhållits. Resultatet består av fem lösningsförslag som tagits fram och vid diskussion med företaget och leverantörer utmynnat i ett slutligt resultat som nu är färdigt för produktion. När projektet avslutades var den första delen i produktion och således målet med projektet uppfyllt.

    Biofilm adhesion on silicone materials2011Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Silicone composite high voltage insulators are sometimes contaminated by microorganisms in outdoor applications, which results in the insulator becoming conductive and thereafter failure of the insulators. In this work, it has been tried to develop silicone materials with antimicrobial properties. Silicone was blended with various antimicrobial agents. Affectivity and appropriate concentration of the biocides were decided through a fast test prior to the manufacturing of the samples.

    Samples were aged according to an international biodegradation test. To study the extent of the growth on the samples’ surface visual analysis and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were performed. Samples were studied for changes in surface properties and surface chemical composition with carrying out dynamic contact angle measurements and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy respectively. Results from the biodegradation test showed some biocides could inhibit the fungal growth comparing the results for the reference samples. Biofilm formation resulted in changes in surface hydrophobicity and surface chemical composition.

    Further, silicone materials were compounded with clay nanoparticles, which were modified with different organic compounds. Reference samples were manufactured with clay nanoparticles modified with a siloxane surfactant to make the dispersion of the particles into the silicone matrix easier. Clay nanoparticles were also grafted with two organic compounds with antimicrobial effect in order to synthesis organoclays, which have antimicrobial properties. Furthermore, grafting clay with these two compounds was also aimed to make the easy dispersion of the particles into silicone possible.

    Nanocomposites compounded with antimicrobial clay nanoparticles as well as reference nanocomposites were tested with quick test for microbial growth. Changes in the clay particles morphology were examined with x-ray diffraction as well as SEM. Manufactured nanocomposites were also examined with x-ray and SEM to study the dispersion of nanoparticles into the silicone matrix. Changes in clay morphology were observed due to modification with organic compounds. Microbial growth was inhibited on some samples due to presence of antimicrobial organoclays.

    Image Analysis Determination of the Influence of Surface Structure of Silicone Rubbers on Biofouling2015Inngår i: International Journal of Polymer Science, ISSN 1687-9422, E-ISSN 1687-9430, 390292Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This study focuses on how the texture of the silicone rubber material affects the distribution of microbial growth on the surface of materials used for high voltage insulation. The analysis of surface wetting properties showed that the textured surfaces provide higher receding contact angles and therefore lower contact angle hysteresis. The textured surfaces decrease the risk for dry band formation and thus preserve the electrical properties of the material due to a more homogeneous distribution of water on the surface, which, however, promotes the formation of more extensive biofilms. The samples were inoculated with fungal suspension and incubated in a microenvironment chamber simulating authentic conditions in the field. The extent and distribution of microbial growth on the textured and plane surface samples representing the different parts of the insulator housing that is shank and shed were determined by visual inspection and image analysis methods. The results showed that the microbial growth was evenly distributed on the surface of the textured samples but restricted to limited areas on the plane samples. More intensive microbial growth was determined on the textured samples representing sheds. It would therefore be preferable to use the textured surface silicone rubber for the shank of the insulator.

    Constitutive Models for Rubber IV: proceedings of the 4th European Conference for Constitutive Models for Rubber, ECCMR 2005, Stockholm, Sweden, 27-29 June 20052005Collection/Antologi (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The unique properties of elastomeric materials are taken advantage of in many engineering applications. Elastomeric units are used as couplings or mountings between stiff parts. Examples are shock absorbers, vibration insulators, flexible joints, seals and suspensions etc.

     

    However, the complicated nature of the material behavior makes it difficult to accurately predict the performance of these units, using for example finite element modelling. It is therefore necessary that the constitutive model accurately capture relevant aspects of the mechanical behavior.

     

    The latest development concerning constitutive modelling of rubber is collected in these proceedings. It is the fourth ECCMR-European Conference on Constitutive Modelling in a series on this subject.

     

    Topics included in this volume are, Hyperelastic models, Strength, fracture & fatigue, Dynamic properties & the Fletcher-Gent effect, Micro-mechanical & statistical approaches, Stress softening, Viscoelasticity, Filler reinforcement, and Tyres, fiber & cord reinforced rubber.

    Piezoelektriska filament: från garn till textil applikation2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Piezoelektriska material används flitigt i olika sensorer då de kan generera en mätbar elektrisk signal vid tryck eller töjning. Arbetet utreder hur ett piezoelektriskt garn innehållandes Polyvinyldiflourid (PVDF) påverkas av faktorer som långvarig mekanisk deformation, fukt och värme. Fokus har legat på det piezoelektriska garnets egenskaper men projektet undersöker också hur integrering i tyg samt applicering i en textil produkt fungerar. Det piezoelektriska garnet har utsatts för ett stort antal tester. I de flesta tester har proverna utvärderats genom cyklisk deformation i en extensometer. Det piezoelektriska garnet har undersökts genom experiment i laboratoriemiljö, praktiska tester i textila applikationer samt vid statistisk analys. Det kan konstateras att yttre faktorer så som fukt och temperatur har inverkan på garnets piezoelektriska effekt. Långvariga tester avslöjar hur garnet uppvisar en längdförändring vid deformation som bidrar till garnets minskade signalstyrka. Garnet kan framgångsrikt integreras i tyg genom sömnad vid rätt inställning för stygnlängd, där högre stygnlängd ger bättre resultat. Samma metod kan användas för att konstruera en piezoelektrisk sensor som appliceras i en träningsstrumpa. Slutsatsen av detta arbete är att parametrar som fukt, krypningsbeteende samt strukturell variation i de individuella PVDF-filamenten har en betydande effekt på det piezoelektriska garnets elektriska signal. Potential i garnets förmåga att fungera som sensor kan ses genom att garnet integrerats med tyg på ett framgångsrikt sätt i en träningsstrumpa för mätning av fotnedsättning. Det kvarstår mycket gällande forskning kring piezoelektriska filament och garn. Vidare forskning i ämnet kommer kunna leda till nya innovativa applikationsmöjligheter som kan komma till nytta inom olika delar av samhället, inte minst inom medicinska användningsområden.

    Development of thermoplastic biocomposites based on aligned hybrid yarns for fast composite manufacturing2015Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The interest in natural fibres as reinforcement for composite materials has been steadily increasing due to their attractive mechanical properties and the possibility of making more eco-friendly materials. Currently, various alternatives are being introduced for commercial applications, as fibres such as hemp, jute and flax exhibit properties, which make them appropriate for structural composite components. Biocomposites offer reductions in weight and cost and have less reliance on foreign oil resources, making them attractive. Several investigations have revealed that the full utilisation of fibre mechanical properties in the final composites can be exploited, provided an aligned fibre orientation is chosen. In fact, a major challenge for natural fibre reinforced composites is to achieve high mechanical performance at competitive prices. The use of commingled/hybrid yarns is one of the more promising methods for manufacturing structural thermoplastic composites.

    Commingled yarns of thermoplastic and reinforcing fibres offer a potential for cost-effective production of composite parts, thanks to reduced applied pressures and impregnation times during processing. Besides economic advantages, there is also direct control over fibre placements and ease of handling of fibres in yarn process. The yarn technologies provide homogenous distribution of reinforcing fibre and matrix. Variation in natural fibre properties has been a major problem facing composite manufacturers, compared to carbon and glass fibres that have well-defined production processes. This issue can be addressed by regenerated cellulose fibres. These fibres can be reproduced easily with high surface evenness and even quality, making it possible to get consistent results, which is not possible with natural fibres. Combination of natural and regenerated cellulose fibre brings together the best of both materials. The end result is a product with superior properties, which could not be obtained by the individual components.

    This thesis describes the development of aligned hybrid yarns with low fibre twist, for high performance natural (hemp) and man-made (Lyocell) cellulose fibre-reinforced biocomposites, suitable for use in structural or semi-structural applications. The properties of composites in terms of fibre orientation, off-axis angle and alkali treatment were investigated, focusing on determining void%, water absorption, mechanical and thermo-mechanical properties. The results show that combining hemp and Lyocell in PLA composite leads to the reduction of moisture absorption and can improve the mechanical properties. The mechanical properties of the composites were highly affected by the fibre direction. The alkali treatment on hemp fibre improved the mechanical properties of the composites.

    Spray-freeze-dried nanosized silicon carbide containing granules: Properties, compaction behaviour and sintering2016Inngår i: Journal of the European Ceramic Society, ISSN 0955-2219, E-ISSN 1873-619X, Vol. 36, nr 16, 3863-3877 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Spherical granules comprising silicon carbide nanoparticles have been produced with the help of sprayfreeze-drying (SFD) technique. The effect of solid loading of slurries on rheological properties, flowability and morphology of the resulting SFD granules has been studied. Further, a systematic study has been performed to investigate the effect of applied pressures and granule density on the relative densities and microstructures of the green compacts. A marginal increase in viscosity is noted as the solid content of slurries increases from 5 to 15 vol% with significant increase in viscosity being observed in case of 18 vol% slurry. The granules prepared from SiC slurries are spherical in shape with their mean size, density, gravimetric flow rate, and yield strength increasing with the increase in solid content. The mechanical properties of sintered SiC produced from SFD granules are found relatively superior to that made from commercially available spray-dried (SD) granules.

    Functionalization of polymer electrolytes for electrochromic windows2013Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Saving energy in buildings is of great importance because about 30 to 40 % of the energy in the world is used in buildings. An electrochromic window (ECW), which makes it possible to regulate the inflow of visible light and solar energy into buildings, is a promising technology providing a reduction in energy consumption in buildings along with indoor comfort. A polymer electrolyte is positioned at the center of multi-layer structure of an ECW and plays a significant role in the working of the ECW.

    In this study, polyethyleneimine: lithium (bis(trifluoromethane)sulfonimide (PEI:LiTFSI)-based polymer electrolytes were characterized by using dielectric/impedance spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, viscosity recording, optical spectroscopy, and electrochromic measurements.

    In the first part of the study, PEI:LiTFSI electrolytes were characterized at various salt concentrations and temperatures. Temperature dependence of viscosity and ionic conductivity of the electrolytes followed Arrhenius behavior. The viscosity was modeled by the Bingham plastic equation. Molar conductivity, glass transition temperature, viscosity, Walden product, and iso-viscosity conductivity analysis showed effects of segmental flexibility, ion pairs, and mobility on the conductivity. A connection between ionic conductivity and ion-pair relaxation was seen by means of (i) the Barton-Nakajima-Namikawa relation, (ii) activation energies of the bulk relaxation, and ionic conduction and (iii) comparing two equivalent circuit models, containing different types of Havriliak-Negami elements, for the bulk response.

    In the second part, nanocomposite PEI:LiTFSI electrolytes with SiO2, In2O3, and In2O3:Sn (ITO) were examined. Adding SiO2 to the PEI:LiTFSI enhanced the ionic conductivity by an order of magnitude without any degradation of the optical properties. The effect of segmental flexibility and free ion concentration on the conduction in the presence of SiO2 is discussed. The PEI:LiTFSI:ITO electrolytes had high haze-free luminous transmittance and strong near-infrared absorption without diminished ionic conductivity. Ionic conductivity and optical clarity did not deteriorate for the PEI:LiTFSI:In2O3 and the PEI:LiTFSI:SiO2:ITO electrolytes.

    Finally, propylene carbonate (PC) and ethylene carbonate (EC) were added to PEI:LiTFSI in order to perform electrochromic measurements. ITO and SiO2 were added to the PEI:LiTFSI:PC:EC and to a proprietary electrolyte. The nanocomposite electrolytes were tested for ECWs with the configuration of the ECWs being plastic/ITO/WO3/polymer electrolyte/NiO (or IrO2)/ITO/plastic. It was seen that adding nanoparticles to polymer electrolytes can improve the coloring/bleaching dynamics of the ECWs.

    From this study, we show that nanocomposite polymer electrolytes can add new functionalities as well as enhancement in ECW applications.

    Arc jets blown by outgassing polymers in air2014Inngår i: Proceedings of the 20th International Conference on Gas Discharges and Their Applications GD2014, GD2014 , 2014, 1-4 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper describes experimental results about the behaviour of arc jets transversely blown in the presence of outgassing polymers (POM –CH2O– or PMMA –C5H8O2–). The arc jets are ignited in air between copper electrodes under a 2 kA, 50 Hz AC current. High speed photography and optical emission spectroscopy are used to study the mechanism leading to the increase of the arc voltage when polymers are used instead of non-ablating materials (e.g. quartz). It is found that the transversal blowing flow caused by the injection of ablation vapours have a weak effect on the arc voltage build-up. Instead, the chemical changes in the plasma environment appear to better explain the observed increase in the arc voltage when polymers are used.

    Inse mitt värde och behåll mig en stund till: Ett undersökande projekt i hållbar textildesign2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

     Inse mitt värde och behåll mig en stund till är ett utforskande projekt i hållbar textildesign. Huvudfokuset i projektet är att utforska vilka möjliga designlösningar som kan ge produkter egenskapen av föränderlighet och på så vis möjliggöra en förlängning av deras livscykler. Detta undersöks utifrån ett eget formulerat förhållningssätt till hållbar design, genom praktiska experimentella undersökningar av olika material och föränderliga mönsterbilder. Detta kombinerat med att ge konsumenten en aktiv roll i förändring av en produkts utseende och funktion. Projektet resulterar i tre produktprototyper som på olika sätt gestaltar föränderlighet och det formulerade förhållningssättet. 1. Mossa, en tröja gjord av rundstickat, jacquard trikåtyg med materialkombinationen Sally Fox bomull och oblekt bomull. Textilen är ett följsamt mjukt tyg med en mönsterbild som ändrar nyans för varje gång konsumenten tvättar den. 2. Kotte, ett påslakan och örngott gjord av en fem-skaftad satängväv i jacquard- teknik. En textil där mönsterbild och färg inverteras på den aviga sidan. Sängklädernas estetiska uttryck kan förnyas av konsumenten själv genom växtfärgning. 3. Bark, en ullfilt gjord av flatstickad dubbelrelief stickning med olika maskstorlekar i jacquardteknik. Filten kan transformeras av konsumenten själv, genom tvättning, och då få en ny funktion som matta. Den går då från en mjuk, tvådimensionell och följsam textil till en kompakt, tredimensionell tålig textil.

    Structural and Electronic Properties of Graphene on 4H- and 3C-SiC2016Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Graphene is a one-atom-tick carbon layer arranged in a honeycomb lattice. Graphene was first experimentally demonstrated by Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov in 2004 using mechanical exfoliation of highly oriented pyrolytic graphite (exfoliated graphene flakes), for which they received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010. Exfoliated graphene flakes show outstanding electronic properties, e.g., very high free charge carrier mobility parameters and ballistic transport at room temperature. This makes graphene a suitable material for next generation radio-frequency and terahertz electronic devices. Such applications require fabrication methods of large-area graphene compatible with electronic industry. Graphene grown by sublimation on silicon carbide (SiC) offers a viable route towards production of large-area, electronic-grade material on semi-insulating substrate without the need of transfer. Despite the intense investigations in the field, uniform wafer-scale graphene with very high-quality that matches the properties of exfoliated graphene has not been achieved yet. The key point is to identify and control how the substrate affects graphene uniformity, thickness, layer stacking, structural and electronic properties. Of particular interest is to understand the effects of SiC surface polarity and polytype on graphene properties in order to achieve large-area material with tailored properties for electronic applications. The main objectives of this thesis are to address these issues by investigating the structural and electronic properties of epitaxial graphene grown on 4HSiC and 3C-SiC substrates with different surface polarities. The first part of the thesis includes a general description of the properties of graphene, bilayer graphene and graphite. Then, the properties of epitaxial graphene on SiC by sublimation are detailed. The experimental techniques used to characterize graphene are described. A summary of all papers and contribution to the field is presented at the end of Part I. Part II consists of seven papers.

    Experimental Analysis and Modelling of Textile Transmission Line for Wearable Applications2007Inngår i: International Journal of Clothing Science and Technology, ISSN 0955-6222, Vol. 19, nr 1, 59-71 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose – The paper seeks, by means of measurement and modelling, to evaluate frequency dependent per-unit-length parameters of conductive textile transmission line (CTTL) for wearable applications and to study deterioration of these parameters when CTTL is subjected to washing.

    Design/methodology/approach – The studied transmission line is made of Nickel/Copper (Ni/Cu) plated polyester ripstop fabric and is subjected to standard 60°C cycle in a commercial off-the-shelf washing machine. The per-unit-length parameters (resistance and inductance) and characteristic impedance of the line are extracted from measurements before and after washing. Using the measurement data an equivalent circuit is created to model the degradation of the line. The circuit is then integrated in a three-dimensional transmission line matrix (TLM) model of the transmission line.

    Findings – Both an electrical equivalent circuit and a TLM model are developed describing the degradation of the conductive textile when washed. A severe deterioration of the electrical parameters of the line is noticed. Experimental and modelling results are in good agreement in the addressed frequency band.

    Research limitations/implications – Analysis is performed for frequencies up to 10?MHz. The developed TLM model can be used to conduct parametric studies of the CTTL. To counteract the degradation of the line, protective coating is to be considered in further studies.

    Originality/value – This paper extends knowledge of the subject by experimental and simulation-based characterization of the CTTL when subjected to washing cycles.

    Evaluation of Conductive Textile for Wearable Computer Applications2006Inngår i: The IMAPS Nordic Annual Conference, 2006, 220-227 s.Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Wearable systems put high demands on wearability and robustness. Conductive fabrics are very likely to be used in wearable systems due to their textile-like characteristics. However conductive fabrics must be able to resist environmental stresses (wearing, laundering, etc.) in the same way as clothing in order to fully comply with the requirements.

    A demonstrator, TxWear, was constructed to exploit conductive fabrics in building a conductive textile transmission line for intermodular communication and power transmission (DC power line communication bus), thus eliminating the need for cables between the modules. The hardware modules are connected to the conductive line through connectors from textile industry, i.e., snap fasteners. Different types of conductive fabrics (Ni/Cu plated polyester fabrics and stainless-steel based elastic ribbon) were evaluated and compared according to their conductivity, flexibility and robustness characteristics. The effect of washing on the electrical properties (per-unit-length parameters) of the textile transmission line was studied. Different coating processes, i.e., parylene and silicone coating, were studied and evaluated in order to isolate and enhance the robustness of the conductive textile. Ni/Cu plated polyester ripstop fabric was found to be not appropriate for wearable applications, while conductive elastic ribbon showed good robustness to laundry induced stresses.

    Chitosan and chitosan/wheat gluten blends: properties of extrudates, solid films and bio-foams2015Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This thesis presents four different studis describing the characteristics and processing opportunities of two widely available biopolymers: chitosan and wheat gluten. The interest in these materials is mainly because they are bio-based and obtained as co- or by-products in the fuel and food sector

    In the first study, high solids content chitosan samples (60 wt.%) were successfully extruded. Chitosan extrusion has previously been reported but not chitosan extrusion with a high solids content, which decreases the drying time and increases the production volume. An orthogonal experimental design was used to assess the influence of formulation and processing conditions, and the optimal formulation and conditions were determined from the orthogonal experimental analysis and the qualities of the extrudates. The mechanical properties and processing-liquid mass loss of the optimized extrudates showed that the extrudates became stable within three days. The changes in the mechanical properties depended on the liquid mass loss.

    In a separate study, monocarboxylic (formic, acetic, propionic, and butyric) acid uptake and diffusion in chitosan films were investigated. It is of importance in order to be able to optimize the production of this material with the casting technique. The time of the equilibration uptake in the chitosan films exposed to propionic and butyric acid was nine months. This long equilibration time encouraged us study the exposed films further. The uptake and diffusivity of acid in the films decreased with increasing acid molecular size. A two-stage absorption curve was observed for the films exposed to propionic acid vapour. The films at the different stages showed different diffusivities. The acid transport was also affected by the structure of the chitosan films. X-ray diffraction suggested that the crystal structure of the original films disappeared after the films had been dried from their acid-swollen state, and that the microstructure of the dried films depended on the molecular size of the acid. Compared with the original films, the dried films retained their ductility, although a decrease in the molecular weight of the chitosan was detected. The water resistance of the acid-exposed films was increased, even though the crystallinity of these films was lower.

    The third study was devoted to chitosan/wheat gluten blend films cast from aqueous solutions. Different solvent types, additives and drying methods were used to examine their effects on the microstructures of the blended films. Chitosan and wheat gluten were immiscible in the aqueous blend, and the wheat gluten formed a discrete phase, and the homogeneity of the films was improved by using a reducing agent, compared with films prepared using only water/ethanol as cast media. Adding urea and surfactants resulted in a medium homogeneity of the films compared to those prepared with the reducing agents or with only water/ethanol. An elongated wheat gluten phase was observed in a film using glyoxal, in contrast to pure chitosan/wheat gluten blends. The opacity of the different films was studied. The mechanical properties and humidity uptake of the films increased with increasing chitosan content. The films containing 30 wt.% of wheat gluten showed the most promising mechanical properties, close to those of the pristine chitosan films.

    The final part describes the preparation and properties of a bio-foam composed of a blend of chitosan and wheat gluten. This foam was prepared without any porogen or frozen liquid phase to create porosity. A unique phase distribution of the chitosan and wheat gluten solutions formed without any agitation, and the foam was obtained when the liquid phase were withdrawn under vacuum. These foams showed high mass uptake of n-hexane and water in a short time due to their open pores and high porosity. The maximum uptake of n-hexane measured was 20 times the initial mass of the foam. The foams showed a high rebound resilience (94 % at 20 % compression strain) and they were not broken when subjected to bending.

    Unusual Effects of Monocarboxylic Acids on The Structure and on The Transport and Mechanical Properties of Chitosan Films2015Inngår i: Carbohydrate Polymers, ISSN 0144-8617, E-ISSN 1879-1344, Vol. 132, 419-429 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The purpose of this study was to study the transport of monocarboxylic acids in chitosan films, since this is important for understanding and predicting the drying kinetics of chitosan from aqueous solutions. Despite the wealth of data on chitosan films prepared from aqueous monocarboxylic acid solutions, this transport has not been reported. Chitosan films were exposed to formic, acetic, propionic and butyric acid vapours, it was found that the rate of uptake decreased with increasing molecular size. The equilibration time was unexpectedly long, especially for propionic and butyric acid, nine months. A clear two-stage uptake curve was observed for propionic acid. Evidently, the rate of uptake was determined by acid-induced changes in the material. X-ray diffraction and infrared spectroscopy indicated that the structure of the chitosan acetate and buffered chitosan films changed during exposure to acid and during the subsequent drying. The dried films previously exposed to the acid showed less crystalline features than the original material and a novel repeating structure possibly involving acid molecules. The molar mass of the chitosan decreased on exposure to acid but tensile tests revealed that the films were always ductile. The films exposed to acid vapour (propionic and butyric acid) for the longest period of time were insoluble in the size-exclusion chromatography eluent, and they were also the most ductile/extensible of all samples studied.

    PIEZOELEKTRISK TRYCKSENSOR: En undersökning om textil struktur och piezoelektricitet2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Arbetet syftar till att skapa en prototyp av en textil trycksensor som kan känna av och skilja på olika typer av belastning. En lämplig metod för att på ett vetenskapligt sätt testa sagda prototyp har också utvecklats. Prototypen har tillverkats för hand på en datoriserad vävstol och de ingående materialen är piezoelektrisk poly(vinyldifluorid), PVDF, tvinnad tillsammans med ett konduktivt garn, Shieldex®, samt polyester. När PVDF-fiber utsätts för töjning genererar de en spänning, vars storlek står i relation till töjningen. Den vävda konstruktion som valdes till prototypen är en distansvara där väftinläggen lagts in i 7 olika lager för att skapa volym. Därmed möjliggörs en töjning av PVDF-fibern som relaterar till trycket strukturen utsätts för.

    För att utvärdera strukturen skapades tre likadana trycksensorer innehållandes fyra PVDF-fiber som lagts in med ett mellanrum på ca 1,5 cm. Dessa prototyper har sedan fästs på en egentillverkad ramp och PVDF- samt Shieldex®-garnet har kopplats in till ett oscilloskop. Därefter har vikter rullats över prototypen för att generera spänning, vilken har kunnat uppmätas med oscilloskopet. De uppmätta resultaten har analyserats och utvärderats med hjälp av Excel.

    Testerna visade tydligt att spänningen som uppmättes stod i relation till vikternas storlek; högre vikter gav en mätbart större spänning. Det finns dock stor varians bland resultaten och utvärdering av samtliga prover visar på stora standardavvikelser hos samtliga fiber. Detta innebär att även om det är tydligt att ökad vikt medför ökad signal så kan det finnas svårigheter i att avgöra storleken på vikten utifrån den uppmätta spänningen.

    A general methodology for inverse estimation of the elastic and anelastic properties of anisotropic open-cell porous materials-with application to a melamine foam2014Inngår i: Journal of Applied Physics, ISSN 0021-8979, E-ISSN 1089-7550, Vol. 115, nr 8, 084904- s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes an inverse estimation method for the characterisation of the elastic and anelastic properties of the frame of anisotropic open-cell foams used for sound absorption. A model of viscoelasticity based on a fractional differential constitutive equation is used, leading to an augmented Hooke's law in the frequency domain, where the elastic and anelastic phenomena appear as distinctive terms in the stiffness matrix. The parameters of the model are nine orthotropic elastic moduli, three angles of orientation of the material principal directions and three parameters governing the anelastic frequency dependence. The inverse estimation consists in numerically fitting the model on a set of transfer functions extracted from a sample of material. The setup uses a seismic-mass measurement repeated in the three directions of space and is placed in a vacuum chamber in order to remove the air from the pores of the sample. The method allows to reconstruct the full frequency-dependent complex stiffness matrix of the frame of an anisotropic open-cell foam and in particular it provides the frequency of maximum energy dissipation by viscoelastic effects. The characterisation of a melamine foam sample is performed and the relation between the fractional-derivative model and other types of parameterisations of the augmented Hooke's law is discussed.

    Single-step manufacturing of femtoliter microwell arrays in a novel surface energy mimicking polymer2015Inngår i: 18th International Conference on Solid-State Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems (IEEE TRANSDUCER 2015), IEEE , 2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    We report a novel polymer material formulation and stamp-molding technique that enable rapid single-step manufacturing of hydrophilic-in-hydrophobic microwell arrays. We developed a modified thiol-ene-epoxy polymer (mOSTE+) formulation that mimics the surface energy of its mold during polymerization. The polymer inherits the surface energy from the mold through molecular self-assembly, in which functional monomers self-assemble at the interface between the liquid prepolymer and the mold surface. Combining this novel mOSTE+ material with a stamp-molding process leads to simultaneous surface energy mimicking and micro-structuring. This method was used to manufacture microwells with hydrophilic bottom and hydrophobic sidewall, depressed in a surrounding hydrophobic surface. The microwell arrays were successfully tested for the self-assembly of 62’000 femtoliter-droplets. Such femtoliter droplet arrays are useful for, e.g., digital ELISA and single cell/molecule analysis applications.

    Confining metal-halide perovskites in nanoporous thin films2017Inngår i: Science Advances, ISSN 0036-8156, E-ISSN 2375-2548, Vol. 3, nr 8, e1700738Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Controlling the size and shape of semiconducting nanocrystals advances nanoelectronics and photonics. Quantumconfined, inexpensive, solution-derived metal halide perovskites offer narrowband, color-pure emitters as integral parts of next-generation displays and optoelectronic devices. We use nanoporous silicon and alumina thin films as templates for the growth of perovskite nanocrystallites directly within device-relevant architectures without the use of colloidal stabilization. We find significantly blue-shifted photoluminescence emission by reducing the pore size; normally infrared-emitting materials become visibly red, and green-emitting materials become cyan and blue. Confining perovskite nanocrystals within porous oxide thin films drastically increases photoluminescence stability because the templates auspiciously serve as encapsulation. We quantify the template-induced size of the perovskite crystals in nanoporous silicon with microfocus high-energy x-ray depth profiling in transmission geometry, verifying the growth of perovskite nanocrystals throughout the entire thickness of the nanoporous films. Low-voltage electroluminescent diodes with narrow, blue-shifted emission fabricated from nanocrystalline perovskites grown in embedded nanoporous alumina thin films substantiate our general concept for next-generation photonic devices.

    vemod(en): -A tribute to the perfect error.2015Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [en]

    In this collection I have explored the paradox of perfection. The collection is an epic tribute to my prior self and discovers how the unperfect can be transformed to something, perceived, perfect. I flirt with my past obsessions in finding mathematically measured legs, exact tailored arms and perfectly fitted stockings. In a fun, poetic and melancholy way I invite the viewer on a highly visual voyage to my childhood where the obsession of finding costume perfection "Vemoden" the act of control becomes visual through statuesque frozen looks, where the previous unperfect becomes perfection.

    Relational Textiles2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The relationship between technology and the expression of form have always been interconnected in the architectural design process; associating the art of envisioning spaces with the craft of materializing them. Recently in terms of surface fabrication, computational tools of representation and material fabrication opened for architectural design new possibilities to explore novel spatial expressions. Surface design processes in architecture start to borrow from the logic of representation of different non-hierarchical structures, e.g., biological systems or textile construction techniques. Relating to that, the present fascination of textiles in architectural design relies on this specific way of building surface design as non-hierarchical form, and by that, allowing the designer to play with the depth of the surface design at micro and macro levels. Exploring different relations between digital and physical through textiles expressions, this research reassess static principles of form–marking the turn from static to relational principles. Thus, the intention is to describe how the character of the textiles and computation as design material redefines the notion of space trough surface aesthetics merging the digital to the physical, and how spatiality can be questioned through textile and interaction aesthetics. Using practice-based research methodology, this research opens and explores this design space by relating theory and practice; it questions and reframes fundamental concepts of expression and scale in architecture by proposing methods for surface design, and a specific language to describe textile architectural aesthetics.

    Repetition: interactive expressions of pattern translation2012Inngår i: Proceedings The Art of Research 2012, The art of research 2012 Making, Reflecting and understading, 28-29 November 2012 at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture Helsinki, Finland, 2012Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    As a way of opening a space where methods from the fields of fashion design, textile design and interaction design overlap, the project Repetition intersects different methodologies through practice-based research in design. Experiments were conducted to explore ways of creating relationships between body and space by means of translating information as pattern design between garments and interactive knitted walls. By arranging a startup performance, we reflected on the expressional variables that influence the expression of the pattern translations; variables concerning the garments, the walls, the print and the movements were illustrated by the expressions found. The result formulates specific descriptions regarding accuracy and distribution of pattern translation, illustrating basic concepts of pattern formations identified in visual changes appearing in the garment. By communicating our understanding of basic expressions, Repetition aims to formulate a new framework for collaborative work as a method for further design.

    Numerical analysis of dynamic crack propagation in rubber2012Inngår i: International Journal of Fracture, ISSN 0376-9429, E-ISSN 1573-2673, Vol. 177, nr 2, 163-178 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    In the present paper, dynamic crack propagation in rubber is analyzed numerically using the finite element method. The problem of a suddenly initiated crack at the center of stretched sheet is studied under plane stress conditions. A nonlinear finite element analysis using implicit time integration scheme is used. The bulk material behavior is described by finite-viscoelasticity theory and the fracture separation process is characterized using a cohesive zone model with a bilinear traction-separation law. Hence, the numerical model is able to model and predict the different contributions to the fracture toughness, i.e. the surface energy, viscoelastic dissipation, and inertia effects. The separation work per unit area and the strength of the cohesive zone have been parameterized, and their influence on the separation process has been investigated. A steadily propagating crack is obtained and the corresponding crack tip position and velocity history as well as the steady crack propagation velocity are evaluated and compared with experimental data. A minimum threshold stretch of 3.0 is required for crack propagation. The numerical model is able to predict the dynamic crack growth. It appears that the strength and the surface energy vary with the crack speed. Finally, the maximum principal stretch and stress distribution around steadily propagation crack tip suggest that crystallization and cavity formation may take place.

    Numerical analysis of dynamic crack propagation in biaxially strained rubber sheets2014Inngår i: Engineering Fracture Mechanics, ISSN 0013-7944, E-ISSN 1873-7315, Vol. 124/125, 1-17 s.Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper proposes a computational framework for dynamic crack propagation in rubber in which a nonlinear finite element analysis using cohesive zone modeling approach is used. A suddenly initiated crack at the center of biaxially stretched sheet problem is studied under plane stress conditions. A transient dynamic analysis using implicit time integration scheme is performed. In the constitutive modeling, the continuum is characterized by finite-viscoelasticity theory and coupled with the fracture processes using a cohesive zone model. This computational framework was introduced previously by the present authors (Elmukashfi and Kroon, 2012). In the current work, the use of a rate-dependent cohesive model is examined in addition to investigation of generalized biaxial loading cases. A Kelvin–Voigt element is used to describe the rate-dependent cohesive model wherein the spring is described by a bilinear law and dashpot with a constant viscosity is adopted. An explicit integration is used to incorporate the rate-dependent cohesive model in the finite element environment. A parametric study over the cohesive viscosity is performed and the steady crack propagation velocity is evaluated and compared with experimental data. It appears that the viscosity varies with the crack speed. Further, the total work of fracture is estimated using rate-independent cohesive law such that the strength of the cohesive zone is assumed to be constant and the separation work per unit area is determined form the experimental data. The results show that fracture-related processes, i.e. creation of new surfaces, cavitation and crystallization; contribute to the total work of fracture in a contradictory manner.

    Abstract [en]

    The following have been rectified in response to previous evaluation by examiner Olof Bruninge. -We have solely chosen qualitative methods in data collection and analysis by making use of data gathered from focus group workshop. The findings have been coded and analysed descriptively. -We have reformulated research questions and replaced the hypothesis with open questions. Allowing us to explore the participants’ behaviour rather than testing hypothesis. -All quantitative measures have been replaced with qualitative analysis and descriptions. -We have provided tables with results from focus group findings to increase transparency in our data
