Thesis title

Knit-quakes Prediction through Machine Learning.

Short abstract

Knitted fabric is a thread-based metamaterial that exhibits crackling noise both in the force signal and in the deformation field when deformed. The occurrence of those intermittent, scale-invariant events cannot be accurately predicted at the time being, as in most systems with similar avalanche-like behavior. However, Machine Learning methods have proven to be a useful tool when dealing with time-series predictions and image processing, giving hope to be able to predict relevant knit-quakes quantities.
