Model complexity of distributed parameter systems: An energy-based approach
(Springer International Publishing, 2016)
Continuous components, like the cantilever beam, are widely used in numerous engineering systems with their geometric and material properties varying depending on the application. Calculating the dynamic behavior of a ...
Thermoresponsive electrospun polymer-based (nano)fibers
Wavelet transform modulus maxima decay lines: Damage detection in varying operating conditions
(IGI Global, 2015)
An important task in structural health monitoring (SHM) is that of damage detection under varying environmental and operational conditions. Structures, under varying environmental conditions, change their mass, elasticity ...
Relations between information theory, robustness and statistical mechanics of stochastic uncertain systems via large deviation theory
(Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2006)
Robustness issues of stochastic uncertain controlled systems are intimately related to concepts from information theory and statistical mechanics. These relations are unveiled by using the theory of large deviations through ...
Poly[2-(acetoacetoxy)ethylmethacrylate]-based hybrid micelles
Block copolymers based on n-butyl mediacrylate (BMA) and 2-(acetoacetoxy)ethyl methacrylate (AEMA), a commercially available monomer bearing a β-dicarbonyl ligand, are used for the solubilization of metal ions (Fe3+, Co2+, ...
Ultrasound imaging modalities
After a short introduction on generation and propagation of ultrasound waves, this chapter presents and discusses currently available and emerging ultrasound imaging modalities, such as standard modes in one, two, and three ...
Application of a New Algebraic Structure-Based Model to Rotating Turbulent Flows
This chapter discusses application of a new algebraic structure-based model to rotating turbulent flows. A primary goal of Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS-based modeling is to determine the Reynolds stress tensor in ...
Effective utilization of liquefied natural gas for distributed generation
(Nova Science Publishers, Inc., 2015)
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is considered a safe and transportable fuel and could become a fueling option for distributed generation applications, particularly in locations which are situated far from centralized power ...
Cucurbituril: A Versatile “Bead” for Polyrotaxane Synthesis
