Selected mechanical problems in load- and depth-sensing indentation testing
Indentation techniques are used extensively in mechanical property testing. In this dissertation, selected mechanical problems in load and depth sensing indentation testing are presented. One commonly used technique for ...
Optimal control of ship maneuvers for course change, sidestep, and collision avoidance
We consider a ship subject to kinematic, dynamic, and moment equations and steered via the rudder under the assumptions that the rudder angle and rudder angle time rate are subject to upper and lower bounds. We formulate ...
Wavelets and the discrete ordinate method for the solution of radiative heat transfer through a participating medium
Wavelet method is applied to the study of radiative heat transfer and combined conductive-radiative heat transfer through the gray and nongray participating medium in one- and two-dimensional (1-D and 2-D) geometries. The ...
Control of serial and parallel robots: Analysis and implementation
The research presented in this thesis is categorized into two areas. In the first part we address the issue of uniform boundedness of the elements of the equations of motion of serial robots, an important issue for the ...
