Natural Frequencies Identification of a Reinforced Concrete Beam using Carbon Nanotube Cement based Sensors (Civil Project)

ABSTRACT

Cementitious materials doped with carbon nanoparticles are robust materials capable of transducing strain into changes in electrical resistance. These properties encourage the development of spatially distributed sensors for structural health monitoring Continue reading

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
