Whole Skin Locomotion Inspired by Amoeboid Motility Mechanisms: Mechanics of the Concentric Solid Tube Model Ingram, Mark Edward (Virginia Tech, 2006-08-10)As the technology of robotics intelligence advances, and new application areas for mobile robots increase, the need for alternative fundamental locomotion mechanisms for robots that allow them to maneuver into complex ...
Garguilo, Keith Francis (Virginia Tech, 1995-12-05)
A four-bar linkage with prescribed nonlinear mechanical advantage has been synthesized and tested. This tool is intended to in1prove cognition of linkage synthesis theory through interactive demonstrations and has both ...
The mechanisms under the Kyoto Protocol: Joint implementation, the clean development mechanism and emissions trading UNFCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC), 2006)The Kyoto Protocol broke new ground by defining three innovative 'flexibility mechanisms' to lower the overall costs of achieving its emissions targets. These mechanisms enable Parties to access cost-effective opportunities ...
