An empirical approach to river bed degradation.
Degradation in a homogeneous alluvial channel due to complete stoppage of sediment downstream of a high capacity reservoir has been studied empirically. Based on dimensional analysis, a method has been established for ...
An experimental study of stratified flow in enclosures
This paper presents all experimental investigation of flow scenarios that lead to stratification within the ventilated enclosures. The effect of supply terminal and extract terminal at various airflow rates on the flow ...

On the enhancement of speaker identification accuracy using weighted bilateral scoring
This paper presents investigations into an effective bilateral scoring method in open-set speaker identification. The approach is based on the fact that two different speakers usually are not reciprocal. A difficulty in ...
The fundamental solution of Mindlin plates with damping in the Laplace domain and its applications
In this paper, a fundamental solution for the Mindlin plate theory with damping is derived in the Laplace transform domain first time. The applications of this fundamental solution are demonstrated by the method of fundamental ...
Detection of Cardiac Signal Characteristic Point Using Log-Domain Wavelet Transform Circuits
To meet the requirement of low power consumption in biomedical implantable pacemaker applications, a novel method based on balanced log-domain wavelet transform (WT) circuits has been developed for detecting QRS complexes ...
Electrical properties of aggregated detonation nanodiamonds
Nanometer-scale diamonds formed using a detonation process are an interesting class of diamondmaterials. Commercially supplied material is highly aggregated with∼5nm diamond crystals forming particles with micron sizes. ...
Characterization and performance of glass-ceramic sealant to join metallic interconnects to YSZ and anode-supported-electrolyte in planar SOFCs
This work describes the design, development and performance of a glass-ceramic sealant used to join the ceramic electrolyte (YSZ wafer and anode-supported-electrolyte (ASE)) to the metallic interconnects (Crofer22 APU and ...
Energy absorption and bending stiffness in CFRP laminates : the effect of 45º plies
The impact characteristics of cross-ply and angle-ply composite laminates were investigated, with an instrumented impact drop tester by performing gravity-assisted drop tests on [0/90]6s and [0/45/90]4s laminates. The ...
Modelling the dispersion of flashing jets using CFD
Risk assessments related to industrial environments where gas is kept in liquid form under high pressure rely on the results from predictive tools. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is one such predictive tool and it is ...
