    • A quantitative assessment of the model form error of friction models across different interface representations for jointed structures 

      Porter, Justin H.; Balaji, Nidish Narayanaa; Little, Clayton R.; Brake, Matthew R.W. (2022)
      Hysteretic models are widely used to model frictional interactions in joints to recreate experimental behavior. However, it is unclear which models are best suited for fitting or predicting the responses of structures. The present study evaluates 26 friction model/interface representation combinations to quantify the model form error. A Quasi-Static ...
    • Measurement and identification of the nonlinear dynamics of a jointed structure using full-field data; Part II - Nonlinear system identification 

      Jin, Mengshi; Kosova, Giancarlo; Cenedese, Mattia; Chen, Wei; Singh, Aryan; (2022)
      The dynamic responses of assembled structures are greatly affected by the mechanical joints, which are often the cause of nonlinear behavior. To better understand and, in the future, tailor the nonlinearities, accurate methods are needed to characterize the dynamic properties of jointed structures. In this paper, the nonlinear characteristics of a ...
    • Measurement and identification of the nonlinear dynamics of a jointed structure using full-field data, Part I: Measurement of nonlinear dynamics 

      Chen, Wei; Jana, Debasish; Singh, Aryan; Jin, Mengshi; Cenedese, Mattia; (2022)
      Jointed structures are ubiquitous constituents of engineering systems; however, their dynamic properties (e.g., natural frequencies and damping ratios) are challenging to identify correctly due to the complex, nonlinear nature of interfaces. This research seeks to extend the efficacy of traditional experimental methods for linear system identification ...
    • Mechanical Strength of Water-Saturated Solnhofen Limestone at Elevated Temperatures 

      French, Melodie (2021-10-07)
      The data is a record of the stress and strain during experimental deformation of Solnhofen limestone across its brittle (localized deformation) to ductile (distributed deformation) transition. We conducted conventional triaxial compression tests on both water-saturated and nominally dry cores of Solnhofen at temperatures up to 200 Celsius and effective ...

    • Ultrasonic measurements on Orocopia schist 

      Fliedner, Celine; French, Melodie (2021-07-27)
      The purpose of the study is to calculate the speed of waves in a rock from the time of arrival. Four datasets are representing experimental measurements at 4 different experimental conditions. The data provided are waves measured in time, with amplitude and energy of the wave. The heading is the experimental setup.

    • Signal recovery via deep convolutional networks 

      Baraniuk, Richard G.; Mousavi, Ali (2021-04-20)
      Real-world data may not be sparse in a fixed basis, and current high-performance recovery algorithms are slow to converge, which limits compressive sensing (CS) to either non-real-time applications or scenarios where massive back-end computing is available. Presented herein are embodiments for improving CS by developing a new signal recovery framework ...
    • Viscosity reduction of crude oil through structure determination of asphaltene molecule 

      Verma, Manjusha; Venkataraman, Pradeep; Pradhan, Sivaram; Shammai, Houman Michael; Billups, Wilbur Edward; (2021-04-20)
      Asphaltene may be effectively broken into smaller molecules by first elucidating the structure of the asphaltene and then developing a catalyst system based on the elucidated structure. The structure may be determined based on a series of analytical techniques including NMR, FTIR, Raman spectroscopy, XPS, and LDI. The most probable structure is ...
