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 ...
Direct Yaw-Moment Control Evaluation of an In-Wheel-Motored Electric Vehicle Based on Body Slip Angle Fuzzy Observer
A stabilizing observer-based control algorithm for an in-wheel-motored vehicle is proposed, which generates direct yaw moment to compensate for the state deviations. The control scheme is based on a fuzzy rule-based body ...
Tensile testing of cellulose based natural fibres for structural composite applications
A series of tensile tests were conducted on a Lloyd LRX tensile testing machine for numerous natural fibers deemed potential candidates for development in composite applications. The tensile tests were conducted on the ...
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 ...
BER performance analysis of radio over free-space optical systems considering laser phase noise under Gamma-Gamma turbulence channels
This paper analytically investigates a bit error rate (BER) performance of radio over free space optical (FSO) systems considering laser phase noise under Gamma-Gamma turbulence channels. An external modulation using a ...
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 ...
Open-Set Speaker Identification under Mismatch Conditions
(ISCA-INST SPEECH COMMUNICATION ASSOC, 2009)
This paper presents investigations into the performance of open-set, text-independent speaker identification (OSTI-SI) under mismatched data conditions. The scope of the study includes attempts to reduce the adverse effects ...
Optimal Control Design For Robust Fuzzy Friction Compensation in a Robot Joint
This paper presents a methodology for the compensation of nonlinear friction in a robot joint structure based on a fuzzy local modeling technique. To enhance the tracking performance of the robot joint, a dynamic model is ...
