Application of back-propagation neural networks to the modeling and control of multiple-input, multiple-output processes
Certain properties of back-propagation neural networks have been found to be useful in structuring models for multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) processes. The network's simplicity and its ability to identify the ...
Genetic algorithm tuning of a fuzzy logic controller for a dynamic system
This thesis describes the use of the genetic algorithm to facilitate the design process of a fuzzy logic based controller. The basic mechanics of both the fuzzy logic control system and the genetic algorithm are presented ...
Analysis and control of kinematic error in harmonic gear drive mechanisms
Harmonic gear drives have found increasing application in high performance and precision servomechanisms due to their attractive physical and dynamic properties. However all harmonic gear drives exhibit undesireable nonlinear ...
The vaporization of an electrically conducting droplet through the use of an external alternating magnetic field
A nondimensionalized model is developed for a falling, electrically conducting, spherical droplet undergoing equilibrium vaporization. Vaporization is caused by the presence of an external, alternating magnetic field. This ...
Two-dimensional modeling of flow and sedimentation
A two-dimensional (vertical) flow model is developed to simulate open channel flow. The governing equations are solved without any depth averaging. Free surface movement is handled with the help of Arbitrary Lagrangian ...
