Aerodynamic modeling of a 2-dimensional airfoil with a covert-inspired deployable flap using a discrete vortex method (2017-07-21)Unmanned aerial vehicles are expected to fulfill increasingly complex mission requirements but are limited by their inability to efficiently perform high-angle-of-attack maneuvers at low Reynolds numbers, while birds seem ...
(2017-07-20)Long-term crutch users utilize Lofstrand crutches for locomotion commonly using swing-through or reciprocal gait patterns. Repetitive high forces, hyperextension and ulnar deviation of the wrist, and excessive palmar ...
(2017-07-20)The degrees of freedom problem is ubiquitous within motor control arising out of the redundancy inherent in motor systems and raises the question of how control actions are determined when there exist infinitely many ways ...
Investigating the influence of film formation on the machining performance in an atomization-based cutting fluid spray system (2017-07-18)Titanium alloys are difficult to machine materials due to their poor thermal conductivity, high affinity to tool materials at cutting temperatures and production of thin chips during machining. Heat generated in the tool-chip ...
Modeling and control of an easy-to-use direct write printing system for fabrication of bone scaffolds (2017-07-21)3D printing is a diverse field, in particular for biological or bioengineering applications. As a result, research teams working in this area are often multidisciplinary. A (bio) 3D printer in this research environment ...
