Variable Friction Device for Structural Control based on Duo-Servo Vehicle Brake: Modeling and Experimental Validation (Civil/Mechanical Project)

ABSTRACT

Supplemental damping can be used as a cost-effective method to reduce structural vibrations. In particular, passive systems are now widely accepted and have numerous applications in the field. However, they are typically tuned to specific Continue reading

Numerical Examination of the Nonlinear Dynamics of a Hybrid Acousto-Optic Bragg Cell with Positive Feedback under Profiled Beam Propagation (Electrical Project)

In standard weak interaction theory, acousto-optic Bragg analysis typically assumes that the incident light and sound beams are uniform plane waves. Acousto-optic Bragg diffraction with nonuniform profiled input beams is numerically examined under Continue reading

Cross-layer Optimization Protocols in Ad-hoc Networks: Analysis and Practical Implementation of Transport and Network Layers (Electronics Project)

Ad-hoc wireless networks use multi-hop transmissions to communicate, without exploiting any infrastructure. Logical links create unreliable connections between nodes: the capacity of the channel can unpredictably change due to the Continue reading
