In the present study, ejecta dynamics techniques are used to investigate the ballistic response of shear thickening particle suspensions as a means of assessing the particle hardness and the role of interparticle friction during penetration. Through particle material variations, the role of...
Alberta’s food processing industry is the second largest food waste producer after the household sector. Most of the waste currently produced from the food processing industry is landfilled. Decomposing landfill waste, moreover, emits greenhouse gases (GHG), which contribute to global warming. In...
We present an analysis of the superposed incremental deformations of lipid membranes in contact with a circular substrate. A complete analytical solution describing the morphological transitions of lipid membranes is obtained via Monge parametric representation and admissible linearization. The...
A model of elastic solids reinforced with fibers resistant to extension and bending is formulated in finite-plane elastostatics. The linear theory of the proposed model is also derived through which a complete analytical solution is obtained. The presented model can serve as an alternative...
This paper investigates the robustness of two well-known applications of second-order consensus dynamics, namely mechanical and power networks. For uniform subsystem parameters, we derive expressions for the H∞ norms of mechanical and power networks, from external disturbances to body...
The traditional approach of cooling tower plume abatement is supposed to result in an unsaturated, well-mixed plume with a ‘‘top-hat” structure in the radial structure, but this is an idealization that is rarely achieved in practice. Meanwhile, previous analyses have shown that there may be an...
Buoyancy-driven exchange flow between two adjacent building zones connected with top and bottom ventsDownload
We examine the buoyancy driven flow between two adjacent building zones separated by top and bottom vents with and without a source of buoyancy. In the absence of a source, by opening the vents, the pressure difference between the two zones drives the exchange flow. When there is an isolated...
Most recent research on flywheel rotors has focused on high-speed composite rotors as the storage element of the flywheel energy storage system (FESS). Literature research indicates that this is primarily due to the high specific energy of composites compared to metals. However, a quantitative...
We report upon a theoretical and experimental investigation of a porous medium ‘filling box’ flow by specifically examining the details of the laminar descending plume and its outflow in a control volume having an impermeable bottom boundary and sidewalls. The plume outflow initially comprises a...
The application of turbulent plume theory in describing the dynamics of emptying filling boxes, control volumes connected to an infinite exterior through a series of openings along the upper and lower boundaries, has yielded novel strategies for the natural ventilation of buildings. Making the...
