The design of small propellers operating at low Reynolds numbers and associated experimental evaluation.
Small-scale Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) are becoming increasingly important in the field of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. As the desire for higher payloads and longer flight times increases, so does ...
Investigation of the impact resistance of carbon nanotube forests within carbon fiber laminated composites through experimental confirmation and finite element substantiation.
Carbon fiber laminated thermoset composites have become the industry standard for applications dictating a high strength-to-weight ratio. However, their brittle nature limits energy dissipation characteristics, often leading ...
Alternatives using the Leap Motion to extend mid-air word-gesture keyboards.
Lately, the use of touchless, mid-air, gesture-based interactions has increased significantly due to the popularity of augmented and virtual reality and advances in other industries (e.g., medicine, gaming), and with this ...
Models for rested touchless gestural interaction.
Touchless mid-air gestural interaction has gained mainstream attention with the emergence of off-the-shelf commodity devices such as the Leap Motion and the Xbox Kinect. One of the issues with this form of interaction is ...
Applying mass and energy balances to model series and parallel fan-powered terminal units.
Performance data from four manufacturers of fan-powered terminal units was analyzed and simple models of the fan/motor power use developed. These data included two fan motors: permanent split capacitor motors with silicon ...
Effects of nozzle geometry and extrudate swell on fiber orientation in Fused Deposition Modeling nozzle flow.
Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a rapidly growing Additive Manufacturing (AM) technology using extruded thermoplastics to produce intricate three-dimensional parts from digital data. Adding discrete fibers to FDM filament ...
