Experimental validation of an L1 controller on a single robotic manipulator on a moving platform and a robotic cooperative network (2017-04-26)This thesis reports on laboratory and in-field experimental results for a single robotic manipulator on a moving platform with unmodeled dynamics that aim to validate theoretical predictions for the dependence on control ...
(2017-04-28)Birds are highly capable and maneuverable fliers, traits not currently shared with current unmanned aerial vehicles. They are able to achieve these flight capabilities by adapting the shape of their wings during flight in ...
Thermo-fluid model of meniscus behavior and oscillation mark formation in steel continuous casting (2017-04-28)The surface quality of steel depends on initial solidification at the meniscus during continuous casting. A computational thermal-fluid model has been developed to simulate the complex transient behavior of the slag layer ...
(2017-04-26)Shear banding and stick-slip instabilities have been long observed in sheared granular materials. Yet, their microscopic underpinnings, interdependencies and variability under different loading conditions have not been ...
Condensation heat flux measurements in ambient conditions on superhydrophobic nanostructured surfaces (2017-04-26)Water vapor condensation is a natural phenomenon experienced in everyday life which can be combined with non-wetting surfaces to enhance heat transfer, desalination, anti-icing and self-cleaning. Recently, superhydrophobic ...
