STOP Analysis

Background Consistent behavior of high-performance optical structures requires maintenance of structural stability over the range of potential operating conditions. In practice, thermally induced aberrations are ubiquitous in optical systems and can limit the performance of optical devices such as gravitational wave detectors, deformable mirrors, lithographic systems, high power lasers, space optical instruments and telescopes, optical …

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Simulation

MRI – Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Simulation Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is one of the most widely used and safest imaging modalities for medical diagnostics. Despite this, one of the major technological challenges facing the biomedical imaging world has been the issues created when a patient with metallic medical implants suffers the need (for any …

Residual Stress and Distortion – Ceramic Matrix Composites

Residual Stress and Distortion – Ceramic Matrix Composites   Now that we have the analysis formulated to address the issues associated with fluid flow, reaction and thermal history the approach can be extended to predict the development of residual stresses and resulting component distortion in the final component. The residual stress generated during processing was …
