Of all microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), regardless of application, micron-scale spacing of interleaved electrodes and high-dielectric ceramics in multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) provide exceptionally high capacitances in small volumes. This has led to MLCCs being the preferred type of capacitor...

 

This report presents an initial investigation of the mechanics of I-beams developed with plastic-aluminum composite technology. Plastic-aluminum composites in structural beam/frame/truss elements are a relatively new concept that has seen little, if any, application in modern construction. This technology...

 

The motivation for this report is a proposed new microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) sensor with applications in civil infrastructure sensing. This report analyzed the influence of three assumptions employed in the Euler-Bernoulli, Rayleigh, and Timoshenko beam theories by comparing their results to...

 

Alternatives to existing transportation truck escape ramps and crash barriers are examined using arrays of wood, bamboo, and fiberglass structural elements that act as energy absorbers as they deform. The behaviors of each material type are analyzed to determine if they have the necessary potential for...

 
Flexible Highway Barriers (May 2008, MPC-08-198)

Highway barriers exist in part to protect life and property from excessive danger as part of normal road usage. Typically, these barriers can be characterized as stiff and passive. In this study, we report on the potential use of highly flexible materials that maintain the effective resistance to load...

 
Highly Flexible Crash Barriers (Jun 2004, MPC-04-162)

A preliminary study modeling the nonlinear behavior of long, slender wooden members was conducted at Colorado State University for the purpose of their use in inexpensive, destroyable crash barriers. This preliminary study compared the results of physical test data, published exact solutions, and the...
