Investigation in to energy efficiency of an electrical generator with a superconductor element as a rotor
This dissertation investigated in to a new type of electrical generator where a rotating High Temperature Superconductor thin film disk, acts as a "magnetic flux shield" creating a rate of change of flux and hence inducing ...
Analysis of the NED and ECEF covariance propagation for the navigational extended Kalman filter
The Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is the most widely used algorithm for the estimation of IMU bias and scale factor errors for GPS/INS navigation. The EKF is a suboptimal sequential state estimator for use with nonlinear ...
A reaction progress variable approach for LES of strongly radiating sooty flames
A reaction progress variable approach is developed for subgrid scale (SGS) modeling of non-premixed turbulent diffusion flames with soot. Two-phase state-relations are constructed using three reaction progress variables ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
The long term effects and performance analysis of tire derived aggregate septic system leachfields: On site evaluation of a full-scale septic system, Lewiston, New York
The management of waste tires has become increasingly important in recent years due to the urgency to reduce unsightly tire stockpiles and their environmental hazards. Recently there has been an aggressive shift in the ...
Flow induced aneurysm-type remodeling near arterial bifurcation apex
Cerebral aneurysms are often found at arterial bifurcation apices, raising the possibility that the unique hemodynamics associated with flow dividers predispose the wall to aneurysm formation. To identify the specific ...
Enhancing the through-thickness thermal conductivity of carbon fiber polymer-matrix composites by nanostructuring
A combined method of microstructuring and nanostructuring has been developed to improve the through-thickness thermal conductivity of carbon fiber polymer-matrix composites. The nanostructuring involved applying carbon ...
Effect of laser annealing on partial discharge behavior in alumina dielectrics
In a variety of high-voltage applications, surface flashover and dielectric breakdown are major concerns to the engineering design team. With the decrease in device size as time passes, the need for quality insulators ...
Representative ridge points in fingerprints: A modified minutiae matching algorithm and analysis of individuality
Existing algorithms using ridge information for fingerprint matching suffer from non-linear deformation, high computational complexity and are not scalable for partial fingerprint matching. We proposed an algorithm utilizing ...
Extension of the nondimensional tire theory to general operating conditions
Advances in computing technology have led to an increase in the use and complexity of automotive vehicle simulations. The limiting factor in the accuracy and speed of these simulations is often the detail and complexity ...
