Investigation of the Double-Trap Intrinsic Kinetic Equation for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction and its implementation into a Membrane Electrode Assembly model.Download
A significant contributor to performance loss in polymer electrolyte fuel cells is the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). A major challenge facing researchers is the development of a kinetic model that accurately accounts for ORR kinetics. Wang et al. proposed a kinetic model that assumes the ORR...
The span-restorable meta-mesh approach was previously proposed as a novel method for improving the capacity efficiency of span restoration in a sparse network. The fundamental idea behind this method is to route lightpaths that fully transit chains of degree-2 nodes onto logical bypass spans that...
Inspired by nature, structured interfaces have been shown to enhance adhesion by trapping crack propagation along the interface. To propagate the trapped crack, more energy input is required externally and therefore the effective fracture toughness is increased. In many applications, directional...
Characterization of Stable Delamination Growth in Fiber-reinforced Polymers using Analytical and Numerical approachesDownload
A new test method, named internal-notched-flexure (INF) test, has recently been proposed to quantify mode II interlaminar fracture toughness of fibre composites. Previous investigation has shown that unlike any of the existing test methods, the INF test generates unconditionally stable...
Last couple of decades have witnessed massive upsurge in efforts of transporting and manipulating solutes and moieties in microfluidic devices. Classical pressure-driven transport demands massive pumping power for microchannels making it unusable in several microfluidic applications. Accordingly,...
Design, Simulation and Evaluation of Effective Industrial Information Systems: Case of Machine Condition Monitoring and Maintenance Management Information SystemsDownload
Industrial information systems can improve the management of industrial operations by providing relevant and timely information on the status of physical assets via condition and process monitoring systems, and by enabling the effective use of data by systems and processes that restore proper...
Assessment of Human Trunk Kinetics Using a Multi-Segment Model: An Approach to Minimize the Propagation of Experimental ErrorsDownload
Evaluating several pathological conditions such as low-back pain, scoliosis, herniated discs, and postural stability after spinal cord injury or chronic stroke requires a deep understanding of the inter-spinal interactions. Assessing the kinetics of the human head-arms-trunk (HAT) could provide...
The health monitoring of critical structures plays a crucial role in locating damage positions timely and preventing catastrophic failures. Much attention has been devoted to exploiting piezoelectric sensors/actuators to develop techniques of recording elastic wave signals to realize structural...
