(2016-11-23)This thesis presents a novel monocular-vision-based localization and mapping algorithm using moments of polygon features. The landmarks we use are polygonal regions instead of a dense set of feature points, which can ...
(2016-12-09)The goal of this thesis is to investigate the synthesis and mechanical behavior of novel refractory coatings for applications subjected to extreme conditions. Starting from aligned carbon nanotube (CNT) forests as scaffolds, ...
(2016-12-08)The increasing demand of applications in polymer industry requires new or improved combinations of material properties, which cannot be satisfied by few polymers alone. There has therefore been scientific and industrial ...
(2016-12-06)Meshing tools for finite element meshes have been studied extensively over the last few decades. However, relatively less attention has been paid to spectral element meshes. This thesis focuses on mesh generation and mesh ...
Asynchronous parallel solver for hyperbolic problems via the Spacetime Discontinuous Galerkin method (2016-12-08)This thesis presents a parallel Space Time Discontinuous Galerkin (SDG) finite element method which makes use of the method's unstructured mesh generation and localized solution technique to achieve a high level of parallel ...
