Graduated at TU Delft and new colleague at Huygens Engineers
On the 31st of March, our new hire Lars Koel graduated from the TUDelft with his master thesis Aerospace Engineering.
The topic of his thesis, sponsored by Huygens Engineers, was the determination of the quasi-static and fatigue strength of helically wrapped structures.
The helically wrapped structure is made of a metal strip which is helically wrapped around itself, and the overlapping interfaces are adhesively joined. A thin-walled hollow tube is created with this method. It is being considered for load carrying structures.
Lars analysed the fatigue crack growth through the adhesive joint and the metal. It was found that the metal was critical for the quasi-static and fatigue strength under some hypotheses. The animation shows the manufacturing of the helically wrapped structure. The structure was created and tested for validation of the FEA models.
We congratulate Lars with his graduation and we warmly welcome him at Huygens Engineers.
Huygens Engineers has a new website
The website of Huygens Engineers is renewed. Or new website provides a beter overview of who we are and where we can add value for our customers.
Electrical Engineer systems & control
Horizon 2020 Seatech - full scale design phase started
After the delivery of the designs for small-scale and medium scale measuring prototypes for the seatech horizon 2020 project, the full size design for wave-energy based bow-propulsor has started.
Master thesis on fatigue behavior of a new type of metallic composite has started
Master thesis for preliminary research on fatigue behavior of a new type of composite for affordable high strength large scale structures has started.
Horizon 2020 Seatech - Pursuing greater fuel efficiency and lower emissions
The EU funded SeaTech consortium is developing two symbiotic ship engine and propulsion innovations, that when combined, will lead to a great increase of fuel efficiency and radical emission reductions. The innovations will be characterized by high retrofitability, maintainability and offer ship owners a return-on-investment of 400% due to fuel and operational cost savings.
Huygens Engineers documentary in "de Barometer"
The documentary about Huygens Engineers in the Dutch program de Barometer is now available on our YouTube channel. We are very satisfied with the result.
