Control Design and Model Validation for Applications in Nonlinear Vessel Dynamics
(Virginia Tech, 2015-06-03)
In recent decades, computational models have become critical to how engineers and mathematicians understand nature; as a result they have become an integral part of the design process in most engineering disciplines. Moore's ...
Modeling Analysis and Control of Nonlinear Aeroelastic Systems
(Virginia Tech, 2015-01-15)
Airplane wings, turbine blades and other structures subjected to air or water flows, can undergo motions depending on their flexibility. As such, the performance of these systems depends strongly on their geometry and ...
Development of Active Artificial Hair Cell Sensors
(Virginia Tech, 2015-06-04)
The cochlea is known to exhibit a nonlinear, mechanical amplification which allows the ear to detect faint sounds, improves frequency discrimination, and broadens the range of sound pressure levels that can be detected. ...
Modeling of Nonlinear Unsteady Aerodynamics, Dynamics and Fluid Structure Interactions
(Virginia Tech, 2015-01-29)
We model different nonlinear systems, analyze their nonlinear aspects and discuss their applications. First, we present a semi-analytical, geometrically-exact, unsteady potential flow model is developed for airfoils ...
