    Abstract User experiences for electronic devices with high portability and flexibility, good intuitive human interfaces and low cost have driven the development of semiconductor technology toward flexible electronics and display. In this study proposes, an advanced flexible interconnect technology is proposed for flexible electronics, in which an ultra-thin IC chip having a great number of micro-bumps is bonded onto a very thin flex substrate using an epoxy-based anisotropic conductive film (ACF) to form fine-pitch and reliable interconnects or joints (herein termed ACF-typed thin-flip-chip-on-flex (TFCOF) technology). The electrical and thermal -mechanical performances of the micro-joints are the key to the feasibility and… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.38, No.3, pp. 155-173, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.038.155
    Abstract In a precast shell pier cap, cracking at the interface between the precast shell and the cast-in-place concrete may happen due to differences between the drying shrinkage of the inner and the outer concrete. The objective of this study is to establish a prediction method for interfacial cracking that will consider the real mechanism of differential drying shrinkage and creep. The main parameters used in the analysis were determined from experiments for a concrete mix that is applied to the manufacturing of pier caps. The variation of internal relative humidity over time was first calculated based on the nonlinear moisture… More >

    Microstructural Modeling and Second-Order Two-Scale Computation for Mechanical Properties of 3D 4-Directional Braided Composites

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.38, No.3, pp. 175-194, 2013, DOI:10.3970/cmc.2013.038.175
    Abstract This study is concerned with the microstructural modeling and mechanical properties computation of three-dimensional (3D) 4-directional braided composites. Microstructure of the braided composite determines its mechanical properties and a precise geometry modeling of the composite is essential to predict the material properties. On the basis of microscopic observation, a new parameterized microstructural unit cell model is established in this paper. And this model truly simulates the microstructure of the braided composites. Furthermore, the mathematical relationships among the structural parameters, including the braiding angle, fiber volume fraction and braiding bitch, are derived. By using the unit cell model, the second-order two-scale… More >
