Earlier studies have shown that driving behavior differs strongly in emergency conditions compared with behavior in normal traffic conditions. In this paper, these findings are followed up with an investigation of how these differences in driving behavior affect travel time reliability. In particular, the focus is on the effect of relatively...

The three-dimensional instantaneous flow organization in the near wake of a micro-ramp interacting with a Mach 2.0 supersonic turbulent boundary layer is studied using tomographic particle image velocimetry. The mean flow reveals a wake with approximately circular cross section dominated by a pair of counter-rotating streamwise vortices...

Recycling of aluminum alloy scrap obtained from delaminated fibre metal laminates (FMLs) was studied through high temperature refining in the presence of a salt flux. The aluminum alloy scrap contains approximately mass fraction w(Cu) = 4.4%, w(Mg) = 1.1% and w(Mn) = 0.6% (2024 aluminum alloy). The main objective of this research is to obtain a...

GLARE (glass fibre/epoxy reinforced aluminum laminate) is a member of the fiber metal laminate (FML) family, and is built up of alternating metal and fiber layers. About 500m2 GLARE is employed in each Airbus A380 because of the superior mechanical properties over the monolithic aluminum alloys, such as weight reduction, improved damage...

We have engineered the band gap profile of transmon qubits by combining oxygen-doped Al for tunnel junction electrodes and clean Al as quasiparticle traps to investigate energy relaxation due to quasiparticle tunneling. The relaxation time T1 of the qubits is shown to be insensitive to this band gap engineering. Operating at relatively low-EJ/EC...

Precision formation flying missions require formation acquisition and maintenance through the interactions among spacecraft by the inter-satellite communication and relative navigation. This paper analyses the dedicated system constraints of the network architecture for precision formation flying missions. The critical time issue and the...

Launching a new product involves the efforts from design development and market development, which requires cross-functional collaboration. When the novelty of a project is high, it would be rather difficult for co-workers to cross boundaries since the shared knowledge is relatively limited. These knowledge barriers might lead to communication...

The collapse of turbulence in the nocturnal boundary layer is studied by means of a simple bulk model that describes the basic physical interactions in the surface energy balance. It is shown that for a given mechanical forcing, the amount of turbulent heat that can be transported downward is limited to a certain maximum. In the case of weak...

The optimality of the kernel number and kernel centers plays a significant role in determining the approximation power of nearly all kernel methods. However, the process of choosing optimal kernels is always formulated as a global optimization task, which is hard to accomplish. Recently, an algorithm, namely improved recursive reduced least...

The process of evacuating some large high-rise buildings may take upwards of several hours. One question that needs to be asked, however, is whether it is feasible and desirable to completely evacuate the high-rise building in fires. This research seeks to remedy this problem by proposing one or more efficient egress plan(s) for high-rise...

In this study, we exploit the ?PIV (microscale particle image velocimetry) analysis to investigate the internal flow field of a dividing droplet in a bifurcating microchannel. Herein, droplets are generated by a flow focusing scheme and sent downstream toward an asymmetric bifurcation. In order to control the proportion of split droplets, we...

Avoiding high computational loads is essential to online aerodynamic model identi- fication algorithms, which are at the heart of any model-based adaptive flight control system. Multivariate simplex B-spline (MVSB) methods are excellent function approximation tools for modeling the nonlinear aerodynamics of high performance aircraft. However,...

This paper proposes a precise and fast direction of arrival estimation method using Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) carrier phase measurements. Single-epoch, single-satellite integer cycle ambiguities are reliably resolved by making use of constraints and taking advantages of antenna arrays. The algorithm shows good robustness in cases...

In sports facilities, a grandstand is the structure which provides good sight quality and safety evacuation conditions for the spectators. Grandstand plays important functional and formative roles in sports facilities, and especially in large scale stadia. This paper argues the notion of shape grammar and its computer implementation will solve...

In laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS), only one single incision is used to introduce all instruments into the abdominal cavity. The introduction of multi-channel single-port devices enabled insertion of laparoscopic instruments and laparoscope through one single entry point instead of multiple entry points in conventional laparoscopic...

The gait of humans is often assumed to be the most energy efficient way of walking. Srinivasan and Ruina [18] confirm this hypothesis using a simple model in which the human is a point mass with straight legs that can change in length during a step. Their results show that the inverted pendulum walk is the most energy efficient gait. The...

Recently, an incremental type sensor based backstepping (SBB) control approach, based on singular perturbation theory and Tikhonov’s theorem, has been proposed. This Lyapunov function based method uses measurements of control variables and less model knowledge, and it is not susceptible to the model uncertainty caused by fault scenarios. In this...

Travel time reliability is considered to be one of the key indicators of transport system performance. Knowledge of the mechanisms of travel time unreliability enables the derivation of explanatory models with which travel time reliability can be predicted and utilized in traffic management. Inspired by the macroscopic fundamental diagram (MFD),...

The wake resulting from two micro ramps operating in a supersonic boundary layer at Ma = 2:0 is investigated by means of PIV. Two micro ramps are investigated with height of 60% and 80% of the undisturbed boundary layer with thickness of 5.2 mm. The measurement domain encompasses the range from 10 to 32 ramp heights downstream of the device. The...
