A new method for solving the kinematics of multifingered grasping and general redundant manipulators: A task oriented approach
Beside our arms, it is our hands that help us to perform tasks. At first glance, we seems to move our arms and use our hands naturally. On closer inspection, however, we find that both our arms and hands are redundant ...
Entrainment and turbulence characteristics of low-velocity isothermal and buoyant jets
The current study examined the transition region of axisymmetric isothermal and buoyant jets of low Reynolds number, directed vertically upwards into a stagnant, unstratified ambient. These flows were examined experimentally ...
Analysis of combustion of pulverized coal by diffusion flame
A two-dimensional theoretical model for the flow and combustion of pulverized coal by diffusion flames is presented. The model predicts gas flows, species concentrations and temperatures. The conservation equations are ...
Computer-aided design of femoral stem prostheses
In the design of femoral stem prostheses, both biologic factors and prosthetic design features influence the long-term performance of the implant. The analysis of all these influences is difficult, if not impossible, at ...
Radiation and convection heat transfer in particle-laden fluid flow
Combined radiation, convection, and conduction heat transfer are studied in a dispersed two phase flow of gray, laminar, axisymmetric media, where both phases are radiatively participating. The radiative transfer equation ...
Interfacial dynamics of liquid droplets and thermophysical property measurement
The interfacial dynamics of a viscous droplet immersed in a viscous medium are considered. The characteristic equation is derived using a normal-mode analysis, and solved for arbitrary, finite fluid properties. The cylinder ...
