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 ...
PARTICIPATORY MAPPING GIS TOOLS FOR MAKING HIDDEN PLACES VISIBLE: A CASE STUDY OF THE TEXAS FREEDOM COLONIES ATLAS
Freedom colonies are historic black settlements established by freed black men and women after emancipation. They exist all over the United States with a high concentration in Texas. Black Texans founded more than 557 ...

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 ...
On the Static Load Performance of a Large Size, Heavily Loaded Spring Supported Thrust Bearing
(Society of Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers, 2019-02-18)
This abstract describes a thermo-elasto-hydrodynamic (TEHD) analysis for prediction of the static load performance of a large size spring-supported thrust bearing (SSTB) operating at a mean surface speed of 20 m/s and 4 ...
Finite element formulation of variable thickness plates
The intense competition between companies especially in automotive industries, pushes the engineers and designers to safer and cheaper products every day. Multi-variable and multi-strength blanks known as Tailor Welded ...
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 ...
