With the advent of IoT and trends toward intelligent manufacturing, having mechanical systems with integrated sensors is becoming more popular. Bearings are one of the components that have attracted more attention toward being integrated with sensors. Therefore, in this research, the design and...
This study focuses on simultaneous vibration suppression and energy harvesting in a broad frequency band. For this purpose, a variant nonlinear energy sink (NES) is developed. The developed variant NES consists of a nonlinear oscillator and an electromagnetic energy harvester. Unlike a true NES,...
Over the past decade, researchers have shown an increased interest in Set-Based Design motivated by the potential benefits of shortening product development time while creating robust products. Despite the growing number of publications around the topic, most of them have focused on practical...
Numerical and experimental comparison of confinement effects on a Fully-Passive Oscillating-Foil TurbineDownload
A numerical and experimental comparison of a fully-passive oscillating-foil turbine operating in different confinement levels is conducted to assert how well CFD-based FSI simulations can predict the performances of the turbine. It is found the present 3D URANS simulations match reasonably well...
This paper focuses on the problematic position tracking of a quadcopter under external disturbances by developing a super-twisting sliding mode controller (STSMC) based on a higher-order sliding mode observer (HOSMO). A generalized quadcopter model is presented with position and attitude...
Combined in Vitro-in Silico Approach to Predict Deposition and Pharmacokinetics of Budesonide Dry Powder InhalersDownload
Purpose: A combined in vitro – in silico methodology was designed to estimate pharmacokinetics of budesonide delivered via dry powder inhaler. Methods: Particle size distributions from three budesonide DPIs, measured with a Next Generation Impactor and Alberta Idealized Throat, were input into a...
Impact Deposition Behavior of Al/B4C Cold-Sprayed Composite Coatings: Understanding the Role of Porosity on Particle RetentionDownload
This study explores the role of porosity in the impact deposition of a ceramic-reinforced metal-matrix (i.e., Al/B4 C) composite coating fabricated via cold spraying. The Johnson–Holmquist–Beissel constitutive law and the modified Gurson–Tvergaard–Needleman model were used to describe the high...
Investigating mechanisms of laser pulse-induced reflectivity modulations in photoacoustic remote sensing with a 10 million frames-per-second cameraDownload
Photoacoustic remote sensing has been recently developed as an all-optical imaging modality capable of imaging a variety of endogenous contrast agents label-free. Initially predicted laser pulse-induced refractive index perturbation-based interrogation beam reflectivity modulations have been...
Low-Cost and High-Speed Fabrication of Camouflage-Enabling Microfluidic Devices using Ultrahigh Molecular Weight PolyethyleneDownload
This study demonstrates a multi-spectrum camouflage control via microfluidic methods within a thermally and visibly semi-transparent polymer (polyethylene). Microfluidic devices have a high potential for achieving multiband camouflage including both visible and infrared (IR) spectrums because...
