Numerical Investigations Of Aerodynamic Noise Due To Flow Past A Bluff Body
Landing gears (LG) are primarily designed to support all the loads of an aircraft during landing, taxiing, and taking off. To ease inspection and maintenance, the aerodynamic design is not refined, where many components ...
Inclusion Of Aerodynamic Effects In Multibody Dynamics
The Equations of Motion (EoM) software, developed by University of Windsor Vehicle Dynamics and Control Research Group, can be used to generate linear or linearized equations of motion for mechanical systems, and is ...
Droplet Impact, Spreading and Freezing on Metallic Surfaces of varying Wettability
Ice formation and accumulation can lead to operational failure and risks for structures, including power transmission lines, aircraft, offshore platforms, marine vessels, and wind turbines. Liquid repellent and icephobic ...
An Experimental Evaluation On Air Conditioning Performance With Vairtex Air Director Applied On Residential Condenser Unit
Thermodynamic performance measurements of a 1.5 ton residential air conditioning system and fluid flow hot-wire velocity measurements at the outlet of the condenser were performed with and without an add-on device (VairTEX ...
Incorporating Asymmetric Hardening Behavior In Modeling The Cold Expansion Process Of Az31B Sheet
The Variable Material Properties (VMP) method of elastoplastic analysis for axisymmetric problems is extended to the applications of the cold expansion problem for magnesium sheets exhibiting asymmetric hardening behavior. ...
The Evaluation Of Modelling Techniques For Lubricant Cavitaion In The Application Of Squeeze Film Dampers
Squeeze film damper (SFD) is widely adopted in turbo-engines to suppress the rotor vibration. However, the prediction of SFD performance is complicated due to the inevitable occurrence of lubricant cavitation. This paper ...
On The Validity Extent Of Linear Viscoelastic Models Of Human Brain
Characterization of human brain material properties in the form of computationally feasible mathematical models is a complex problem; especially when the models are used in complicated Finite Element simulations. Various ...
Design And Optimization Of A Novel Beam-Based Shimmy Damper
Shimmy damper is a passive solution for undesirable oscillations in landing gears. Although it mitigates shimmy to an allowable degree, it can introduce weight, cost, and reliability penalties especially when retrofitted ...
Robust Cooperative Close Formation Flight Control Of Multiple Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
This paper investigates the close formation control problem of multiple unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). A robust cooperative control algorithm is proposed in light of the uncertainty and disturbance estimation technique. ...
