Field-Scale Experimental Analysis Of Helical Steel Piles As In-Ground Heat Exchangers For Ground Source Heat PumpsDownload
With the increasing concern of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions, innovative solutions to produce energy via renewable sources are needed. Geothermal energy has the potential to provide heating and cooling to residential and commercial buildings, however, its implementation has been...
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...
Objective. Review the reported activation methods of maxillary expansion devices for midpalatal suture separation from an engineering perspective and suggest areas of improvement. Materials and Methods. A literature search of Scopus and PubMed was used to determine current expansion methods. A...
Investigation into the effects of stainless steel ligature ties on the mechanical characteristics of conventional and self-ligated brackets subjected to torqueDownload
Objective: Torque is applied to orthodontic brackets in order to alter the buccal-lingual angulation of a tooth. One factor that can affect torque is the ligation mode used to retain the archwire in the bracket slot. The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of stainless steel...
A new ductility exhaustion model for high temperature low cycle fatigue life prediction of turbine disk alloysDownload
Based on ductility exhaustion theory and the generalized energy-based damage parameter, a new viscosity-based life prediction model is introduced to account for the mean strain/stress effects in the low cycle fatigue regime. The loading waveform parameters and cyclic hardening effects are also...
Bottom propagating gravity currents resulting from full- and partial-depth lock-release experiments are investigated as they approach and then propagate up a rising slope. Consistent with the prediction of a WKB-like theory, the gravity current front decelerates in a nearly uniform manner along...
Evaluation and prediction of the tensile properties of continuous fiber-reinforced 3D printed structures composite structuresDownload
Three dimensional (3D) printing is a technique conventionally used to manufacture prototypes. Commercial desktop 3D printers have become available which produce functional 3D printed parts. The MarkOne by Mark Forged manufactures printed structures reinforced with continuous Carbon, Fiberglass or...
This study investigates the effects of the processing-induced defect population on the dynamic compressive strength and failure of a hot-pressed boron carbide. Quantitative microscopic analysis was used to determine the distributions of three types of processing-induced inhomogeneities: aluminum...
Constructing set-valued fundamental diagrams from jamiton solutions in second order traffic models.
Fundamental diagrams of vehicular traffic flow are generally multi-valued in the congested flow regime. We show that such set-valued fundamental diagrams can be constructed systematically from simple second order macroscopic traffic models, such as the classical Payne-Whitham model or the...
