Evaluation of a Modified Void Descriptor Function to Uniquely Characterize Pore Networks and Predict Fracture Location in Additively Manufactured Metals

November 15, 2021
Author(s)
Dillon Watring, Jake Benzing, Orion Kafka, Li-Anne Liew, Newell Moser, John Erickson, Nik Hrabe, Ashley Spear
Variations in additive manufacturing (AM) processing parameters can lead to variations in porosity, making it challenging to predict pore- or void-sensitive mechanical response in AM metals. A recently developed pore metric, the void descriptor function

Experimental study of shear and tensile properties of LIGA Ni-Fe and Ni-Co alloys at quasi-static and intermediate strain rates

April 1, 2021

Li-Anne Liew, David T. Read, May Martin, Todd R. Christenson, Peter E. Bradley, Nicholas Barbosa, Frank W. DelRio, John T. Geaney, Jeffrey Smyth
We report the in-plane shear properties, to fracture, of 200 um-thick LIGA nanocrystalline Ni- 10%Fe and micrograined Ni-10%Co. Planar simple shear specimens were designed, fabricated and pulled to fracture using a miniature commercial tension test stage

Elastic-plastic properties of mesoscale electrodeposited LIGA nickel alloy films: microscopy and mechanics

November 22, 2020

Li-Anne Liew, David T. Read, May Martin, Frank W. DelRio, Peter E. Bradley, Nicholas Barbosa, Todd R. Christenson, John T. Geaney
The elastic-plastic properties of mesoscale electrodeposited LIGA Ni alloy specimens are investigated as a function of specimen size, strain rate, and material composition. Two material compositions are studied: a high-strength fine-grained Ni-Fe alloy and

Dominant factors for fracture at the micro-scale in electrodeposited nickel alloys

Author(s)
May L. Martin, Li-Anne Liew, David T. Read, Todd Christensen, Frank W. DelRio, John Geaney
Two different LIGA electrodeposited nickel alloys displayed distinct fracture modes after meso- scale tensile testing. The Ni-Co alloy failed in a ductile manner, while the Ni-Fe alloy failed in a more brittle-appearing manner. Various factors affecting

MEMS Device for Fatigue Testing of 25 mm Thick Aluminum Specimens

June 13, 2013

Li-Anne Liew, David T. Read, Nicholas Barbosa
We report the development and demonstration of a MEMS test instrument to perform fatigue testing on 25 µm thick aluminum 1145 H19 foil. Both the foil material and the specimen fabrication were obtained from commercial sources, separate from the fabrication

MEMS-based universal fatigue test technique

August 22, 2012
Author(s)
Li-Anne Liew, David T. Read, Nicholas Barbosa
We have developed a MEMS (micro electro mechanical systems) -based method for fatigue testing of micro- to millimeter-sized specimens of any material (hence ‘universal’). The miniature, re- usable, stand-alone fatigue test frame is fabricated as a single

A thickness-shear MEMS resonator employing electromechanical transduction through a coplanar waveguide

Ward L. Johnson, Thomas M. Wallis, Pavel Kabos, Eduard Rocas, Juan C. Collado Gomez, Li-Anne Liew, Albert Davydov, Alivia Plankis, Paul R. Heyliger
The design, modeling, fabrication, and characterization of a vibrationally trapped thickness-shear MEMS resonator is presented. This device is intended to avoid various limitations of flexural MEMS resonators, including nonlinearity, clamping losses
