    • Towards A Conceptual Model Of Design Team Learning In Mechanical Engineering Education 

      Ha, Minha; Czekanski, Aleksander (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      Design education is the backbone of the undergraduate Mechanical Engineering (ME) curriculum at Lassonde School of Engineering (LSE). ME students take project-based design courses every year of their program. Students in ...
    • A Two-Stage Conversion Process For Az31B Corrosion 

      Wang, Jie; Jahed, Hamid; Pang, Xin (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      Permanganate phosphate coating is considered as one of the most promising alternative coatings to chromate conversion coating because of the similarity between permanganate and chromate. However, the permanganate phosphate ...
    • Using Visco-Plastic Lubrication For Suspension Transportation 

      Garmeh, Saeed; Dolatabadi, Ali; Karimfazli, Ida (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      This study focuses on a common problem in suspension plasma spraying called clogging. Different mechanisms causing that issue are described and a technique called visco-plastic lubrication is introduced as a solution to ...
    • Vibration Analysis Of A Double Circular Pzt Actuator For A Valveless Micropump 

      Parsi, Behzad; Zhang, Lihong; Masek, Vlastimil (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      In the conventional mechanical micropumps, the motion from one component (such as gear or diaphragm) produces pressure difference, which is needed to move fluid. In this paper, we propose a new method to use double PZT ...
    • Vibration Control Of Downtown Toronto High-Rise Development 

      Noormohamed, Ali; Mercan, Oya; Fathieh, Amirahmad (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      In this industry-academia collaboration, a multi-platform hybrid numerical simulation was performed to assess the effectiveness of a tuned liquid damper (TLD) to be installed in a high-rise condominium located in Downtown ...
    • Vibration Isolation Of A Carbon Nanotube Filled With A Mass Chain 

      Lu, Lu; Ru, C.Q. (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      Vibration isolation is one of the most prominent characteristics of elastic metamaterial with negative effective mass. In this work, we show that a carbon nanotube filled with a linear mass chain can behave like an elastic ...
    • Vision-Based Relative State And Inertia Ratio Estimation Of Unknown Targets 

      Feng, Qian; Pan, Quan; Zhu, Zheng Hong; Hou, Xiaolei; Liu, Yong (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      This paper develops an algorithm to estimate the relative pose, motion, and inertia ratio of an unknown target using stereoscopic vision. First, the positions and velocities of detected feature points on the spacecraft are ...
    • Vortex-Induced Vibrations Of A Low-Tension Cable-Sheave System Modeled Using Nonlinear Finite Elements 

      Westin, Cassidy; Irani, Rishad A. (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      This work presents a finite element model of a cablesheave system constructed to model cable vibrations due to vortex shedding in low-tension cases. The study assesses the potential for vortex shedding to lead to detachment ...
    • Water Droplet Impact And Spreading On A Narrow Gap 

      Bouchard, Jordan; Chandra, Sanjeev (CSME-SCGM, 2018-11)
      The impact and spreading of a water droplet on a gap between two parallel plates has been studied experimentally. A deionized water droplet (2.03 mm diameter) impacted the plates at velocities of 0.06, 0.5, 1.0, and 1.5 ...
    • Wave Interaction Of Partially Immersed Semicircular Breakwater Suspended On Piles Using Flow-3D 

      Abozaid, Ahmed; Mahmod, Wael; Koraim, Ayman; Heikal, Elsadekl; Fath, Hassan (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      This paper experimentally investigates the wave transmission through partially immersed semicircular breakwater suspended on two rows of circular piles. Different wave and structure parameters have been investigated such ...
    • Wind Loads On Cyclists Due To Passing Vehicles 

      Lubitz, William David; Rubie, Bryan (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      Continuous wave photoacoustics has been under investigation for more than a decade. Matched-filtering and pulse compression techniques, which use a chirp waveform as input light source, have been implemented into this ...
    • Wind Turbine Wake Effect Visualization And LiDAR Measurement Techniques 

      Mckinnon, Michael; Johnson, David (CSME-SCGM, 2018-05)
      The expansion of wind energy development has resulted in larger wind farms and closer placement of turbines to utilize the space available. Each turbine produces a wake that affects downstream turbines, which causes issues ...
