Polymers are prone to deform slowly over long periods of time when subjected to applied load, a phenomenon known as creep. Over time, the deformation can grow so large that the part no longer functions as intended. Veryst utilized creep testing to compare material choices and set temperature specifications for polymers.
Veryst used topology optimization to design an additively manufactured bracket for adhesive assembly and then used cohesive zone modeling to predict the strength of the bonded joint.
Knowledge of thin film mechanical properties is important for device operation, reliability, and simulation. Veryst measured the elastic modulus of a low stress silicon nitride thin film using nanoindentation and validated the technique with atomic force microscopy.
The microelectronics packaging industry relies heavily on adhesive bonding to assemble electronic components. Veryst built a COMSOL Multiphysics model of a thermocompression bonding process to help reduce bonding cycle time by simultaneously optimizing material and process variables.

Allyson Hartzell was invited to speak at the International Workshop on Nano/Micro 2D and 3D Fabrication and Manufacturing of Electronic and Biomedical Devices and Applications (IWNEBD-2018), at the India Institute of Technology, Mandi.
Dr. Mark Oliver and Dr. Scott Grindy offered a webinar hosted by the Adhesives and Sealants Council. They discussed methods for characterizing the mechanical behavior of adhesive materials and adhesive joints to take advantage of FEA, identified strategies for modeling adhesive joints and described the pros and cons of each, and much more.
