As the demand for oil and gas resources increases pipeline construction pushes further into the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Consequently, these buried pipelines suffer much harsh environmental and complex loading conditions. Moreover, to increase the transporting efficiency, larger size pipes...
This thesis describes the fabrication and characterization of integrated hollow Bragg waveguides fabricated by controlled thin film buckling. Hollow waveguides based on two different set of materials were studied. In the first case, thermal tuning of air-core dimensions was studied using...
An experimental study of the shear-induced buckling of a thin, viscous film in an axisymmetric geometry is presented. Rotating the inner boundary relative to a stationary outer one, generates large in-plane shear forces in the laterally constrained millimetric film, which leads to buckling of the...
