Dual independent displacement-amplified micropumps with a single actuator
We report a dual-micropump structure operated by a single actuator element. The constituent micropumps are a form of micro throttle pump (MTP) comprising a narrow flow channel incorporating two microthrottles. We term this ...
A review of vibration-based structural health monitoring with special emphasis on composite materials
Structural health monitoring and damage detection techniques are tools of great importance in the off-shore, civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineering communities, both for safety reasons and because of the economic ...
Multimodal Authentication using Qualitative Support Vector Machines
(ISCA-INST SPEECH COMMUNICATION ASSOC, 2006)
This paper proposes an approach to enhancing the accuracy of multimodal biometrics in uncontrolled environments. Variation in operating conditions results in mismatch between the training and test material, and thereby ...
Verification Effectiveness in Open-Set Speaker Identification
This paper is concerned with the verification effectiveness in open-set, text-independent speaker identification. The study includes an analysis of the characteristics of this mode of speaker recognition and the potential ...
Improvement of newman's model on fatigue crack closure
Newman had brought his crack closure model. It is done well in simple closure model, but it is not exactitude when there is a complex elastic-plastic region in crack front and has a variety stress-ratio. The paper improved ...
The effect of pre-straining on the mechanical behaviour of self-piercing riveted aluminium alloy sheets
Self-piercing riveting as an alternative joining method to spot-welding has attracted considerable interest from the automotive industry and has been widely used in aluminium intensive vehicles. Pressing and stamping are ...
