3D IC assembly processes are introducing new stress mechanisms not observed in 20 environments, which have significant effects on the performance of both BEOL and FEOL. This paper deals with the underfill-microbump interaction mechanism observed after 3D IC stacking and focuses on its scarcely explored impact on the FEOL. FEOL stress sensors and finite(More)
In a virtual prototyping context the importance of physical uncertainty modelling has become more evident. The increased computational performance over the last years enlarges the potential in the use of large models (more DOF’s) and in the application of more advanced numerical methods. This results in more accurate models from the numerical point of view.(More)
The objective of this paper is to give a survey on the use of non-probabilistic methods for non-deterministic numerical analysis. It consists of a general theoretical discussion on the use of non-deterministic concepts in numerical analysis, an overview of the basic properties of possible implementations of the non-probabilistic finite element code, and(More)
This paper concerns with the design of an acoustic cavity (transmission suite) for the vibro-acoustic characterization of lightweight panels. This setup has the big advantage of being a small (1150x984x820 mm) which allows the identification of the studied behaviour for both structureand airborne excitation, on panels of different size (from A4 to A2) and(More)
This article demonstrates the application of a generic methodology, based on the flexible multibody simulation technique, for the dynamic analysis of a wind turbine and its drive train, including a gearbox. The analysis of the complete wind turbine is limited up to 10 Hz, whereas the study of the drive train includes frequencies up to 1500 Hz. Both studies(More)
This paper uses a non-probabilistic Fuzzy Finite Element Method (FFEM) for the analysis of the dynamic behaviour of structures with uncertain parameters. In two case studies, the concepts of the interval and the fuzzy finite element frequency response function analysis are illustrated for different types of uncertainties, for undamped as well as for damped(More)
A new prediction technique, based on the indirect Trefftz method, has been developed for the steady– state dynamic analysis of coupled vibro–acoustic systems. In contrast with the finite element method, in which the dynamic field variables within each element are expanded in terms of local, non–exact shape functions, the dynamic field variables are(More)
In this paper an experimental-numerical approach is presented to tackle the vibro-acoustic characterization of composite sandwich structures. A novel experimental setup allows for fast and comprehensive understanding of the NVH behaviour of composite sandwich panels. This information can then be further exploited in numerical model updating and design tools(More)
In the automotive industry, vehicle interior acoustics has become an important design criterion. Both legal restrictions and the growing demand for comfort, force the car manufacturers to optimize the vibro-acoustic behaviour of their products. The tendency to minimise the number of physical prototypes and to reduce the overall development cost and time, as(More)
The use of the new wave based (WB) method, instead of the finite element (FE) method, for the steady-state dynamic response analysis of flat plates is considered. The mathematical background of the WB method is discussed in detail, where much attention is paid to the least-squares formulation. The comparison of both prediction techniques applied to an(More)
