Smart Soft Actuation System
(Austin Publishing Group, 2015-06-06)
We have demonstrated the fabrication of cantilever shaped soft material actuator, by integrating soft silicon material with Ti-Ni shape memory alloy (SMA) wires with the diameter of 250 micrometer. A 3D stereo-lithographic ...
Thermo Hydrodynamic (THD) Computational Analysis For Tilting Pad Thrust Bearings (TPTBs)
The report details a thermo-hydrodynamic (THD) analysis for the static and dynamic force performance of TPTBs. The goal is to deliver a modern predictive tool for TPTBs to be further integrated into the XLTRC2 software ...
Towards the Application of Uncertainty Analysis in Architectural Design Decision-Making
To this day, proper handling of uncertainties -including unknown variables in primary stages of a design, an actual climate data, occupants` behavior, and degradation of material properties over the time- remains as a ...
Single-Phase PQ Inverter Model and Application to Unbalance Compensation in Islanded Microgrids (PSCAD Simulation)
This is a simulation study of islanded microgrids for black start purpose. The study focuses on the voltage unbalance that results from serving unbalanced loads in the distribution system and how this could be mitigated ...
Critical Infrastructure and Cyber Security
We were tasked by CENTRA Technology, Inc., to create a methodology that could be used to prioritize critical cyber assets in the United States. We have answered that call by developing a user-friendly, consequence-based ...
