Title:A Measurement of Thin Film Properties with the RUSpec Method from Vibrations of Covered Elastic Cuboids

Abstract:In modern products from advanced manufacturing processes like semiconductor and electronic device industries, thin films are frequently utilized for essential functions such as conductive layers and functioning materials for various applications.  With sophisticated processing techniques, thin films can be coated on surfaces of various substrates with relatively thin thickness and desired planner patterns to satisfy application needs.  It is known that thin films are made from bulk materials by a phase transformation technology, and the large temperature variation will induce many changes related to the physical properties and material formation.  As a result, concerns about property changes in thin films are justified and should be addressed to support product development efforts. In this study, we start with a cuboid sample coated with thin films on faces.  The vibrations of such a coated cuboid are formulated with the Rayleigh-Ritz method as a layered structure.  With one set of displacement functions in the entire structure, strain and kinetic energies are calculated separately with the consideration of different material properties and sizes, providing the basis for the determination of unknown properties of materials through the frequency solutions.  By combining this analysis with the RUSpec technique, we can obtain the physical properties of the thin film layers based on the frequency variations.  With the advantages of easy-use and simple sample preparation, this will be a simple and accurate method for the evaluation of the physical properties of thin films which can be found in many applications today.

Title:Research on key manufacturing technology of core equipment for offshore wind farm construction

Abstract:China is vigorously developing offshore wind power, which is the national strategy of China to adjust the energy structure, reduce environmental pollution and achieve the "double carbon target". It is very difficult to install super-large wind turbines in the harsh environment of deep water with many typhoons, large wind waves, rapid velocity, many ice flows, complex seabed, long offshore distance and short annual construction time. The report introduces the research results of the design and manufacture of the core equipment for offshore wind farm construction for many years, and focuses on how to solve the following technical problems: the operation of the huge self-propelled jack-up installation platform is "easy to overturn and unstable", the lifting of the ultra-100-meter-long blade in the high wind is "easy to be misaligned", the single pile driving of the complex submarine giant wind turbine is "easy to be deflected and not straight", and the connection of the ultra-long submarine cable is "easy to be damaged and broken". This report introduces the technical innovation of the research results, a series of internationally leading ultra-large installation platforms, submarine cables and connection joints, international influence, application in the construction of famous offshore wind farms at home and abroad, and core patents obtained, etc.

Title:Macroscopic Two-Dimensional Polymers: Synthesis and Structure Control 

Abstract:At present, one of the key challenges faced by the scientific community is to go beyond graphene, a prototypical two-dimensional polymer (2DP, a laterally infinite, one atom- or monomer-unit thin, free-standing network with long-range order along two orthogonal directions), to synthesize its analogues with structural control at the atomic- or molecular- level under mild conditions. Here we present the rational synthesis of monolayer and multilayer 2DPs at an air-water interface. Such 2DPs are highly crystalline with controlled aggregate structure and microstructure and tunable single-crystal domain size in the range of tens of nanometers to several micrometers. They have a tunable thickness ranges from 0.7 nm to around 1μm and a lateral size up to 4-inch wafer, and can be freely suspended over 40 μm × 40 μm sized holes. They are rigid and flexible, and can be conformed and bonded robustly to nearly any surface, facilitating their integration with target supports or into devices for the extraction of properties. On the basis of the elucidation of their molecular structures, near atomic structures, grain boundaries and edge structures, some preliminary structure-property relationships of the 2DPs were obtained.

Title:Study on Vibration Reduction Performance of Gear Pairs Made of High Strength Fe-Mn Damping Alloy

Abstract:Based on the characteristics that the damping alloy can convert mechanical energy into heat energy and dissipate it in materials and environment, high-strength Fe-Mn damping alloys were used to replace common gear materials to absorb vibration-generated energy from the vibration source. A high-strength Fe-Mn damping alloy was developed. Taking two kinds of new damping alloy materials and common materials as the research object, the constitutive model of Fe-Mn damping alloy material was established, the temporal increment step form of a three-dimensional constitutive model was deduced, and a user-defined material (UMAT) sub-program of damping alloy constitutive model were developed by FORTRAN language. Based on the three-dimensional contact nonlinear finite element model of the gear shaft-bearing box, the transient dynamic analysis was conducted by using the non-explicit algorithm to obtain the responses of vibration acceleration on the gear reducer box, which can verify the correctness of the proposed constitutive model. The vibration experiments of gear reducer made of the above-mentioned materials were carried out under different working conditions. Vibration reduction of the developed high-strength Fe-Mn damping alloy can be certificated by comparing the vibration acceleration response and the measuring point temperature of the gear reducer house prepared by different alloys.
