Integrated Wireless Optical Networking
The interoperability of wireless and PON topologies is investigated to reduce deployment expenditure by means of centralised network management while providing ubiquitous access connections and mobility. In addition, the ...
A method for the localization of damage in a CFRP plate using damping
In the past 25 years, the scientific and industrial communities have made great efforts on the fields of damage detection and structural health monitoring (SHM). However. no single approach has proven appropriate for all ...
Numerical Simulation of charge stratifications to improve combustion and NO formation of lean-burn SI engines
The influences of charge stratification on spark ignition (SI) engine combustion and NO emission were analyzed using a phenomenological model. The mixture in the cylinder was divided spherically into three parts: a central ...
On multi-objective optimization of geometry of staggered herringbone micromixer
A design methodology for micromixers is presented which systematically integrates computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with an optimization methodology based on the use of design of experiments (DOE), function approximation ...
GPON Extended Wavelength Band Overlay
Local Heat Transfer Measurements on a Rotating Flat Blade Model with a Single Film Hole
An experimental study was performed to measure the heat transfer coefficient distributions on a flat blade model under rotating operating conditions. A steady-state thermochromic liquid crystal technique was employed to ...
CFD analysis of VVT/VVA on the gas exchange and fuel-air mixing in a diesel engine
A three-dimensional simulation was carried out for investigating effects of negative valve overlap (NVO) on gas exchange and fuel-air mixing processes in a diesel homogeneous charge compression ignition (HCCI) engine with ...
Numerical investigation of soot reduction potentials with diesel homogeneous charge compression ignition combustion by an improved phenomenological soot model
An improved phenomenological soot model coupled with a reduced n-heptane chemical mechanism was implemented into KIVA-3V code to describe soot formation and oxidation processes in diesel homogeneous charge compression ...
The impact of manufacturing execution systems on labor overheads
The advantages of Manufacturing Execution Systems have been weel documented. One such advantage, reduced labour overheads, has been tested at an agile manufacturing facility to determine the extent of the capability. A ...
