With renewed interest in the development of civil supersonic aircraft, their return in the future is becoming more ever more likely. The environmental impact of emissions in the stratosphere on climate and the ozone layer therefore needs to be explored. The stratospheric ozone levels determine the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation reaching...

Micro- and nanoelectromechanical (MEM/NEM) resonators are used in numerous fields of engineering and are crucial for time keeping, synchronization, and sensing applications. These systems are subjected to energy dissipation, which is a limiting factor in the performance. Extensive understanding is essential when nonlinearities show up in both...

Meta-heuristic optimisation algorithms are high-level procedures designed to discover near-optimal solutions to optimisation problems. These strategies can efficiently explore the design space of the problems; therefore, they perform well even when incomplete and scarce information is available. Such characteristics make them the ideal...

Micro and nanomechanical resonators are essential to the state-of-the-art communication, data processing, timekeeping, and sensing systems. The discovery of graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials has been a profound source of inspiration for the next generation of these devices, owing to their exceptional mechanical, electrical, and...

While nonlinear phenomena in mechanical systems are well understood, strategies for designing structures that exhibit certain nonlinear responses have received little attention. Design optimization is a systematic and iterative process aimed at improving the performance and efficiency of a system. It involves exploring various design choices and...

Underactuated mechanical systems (UMS) feature prominently in robotics and aerospace, with aircraft, unmanned air vehicles, and aeroelastic wings as prime examples. These systems present multifaceted control challenges, ranging from inherent underactuation and stability concerns to state and control saturation and an overarching need for...

Structural joints influence the design strength, material requirement of a structure. Structural joints experience damping dissipation due to friction damping or hysteresis damping. Damping is often used for reducing the vibrations in a structure. However, large amount of energy dissipation leads to deterioration of the material used for...

From the motion of electrons in an atom to the orbits of celestial bodies in the cosmos, governing equations are essential to the characterisation of dynamical systems. They facilitate an understanding of the physics of a system, which enables the development of useful techniques such as predictive control. An increasingly popular method to...

Mode coupling has extensive use in the MEMS field, including frequency division, vibration direction conversion, and energy transfer. In practice, these applications can be used to improve the performance of various devices such as sensors and energy harvesters. Nonlinear spring also has a wide application in MEMS field. Various nonlinear spring...

Two-dimensional (membrane) materials have been receiving much scientific attention due to their unique material properties that can be used to study the smallest physical phenomena. One such material is graphene, perceived as the holy grail in material physics, due to its unique material properties. Its aspect ratio diminishes the bending...

Control of a helicopter with a deployed dipping sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) is no trivial task due to the complex dynamics of the suspension cable. The cable can change shape, which influences the effect of water, wind and the motion of the helicopter itself. To control such a system, a control method is needed that can cope with these...

Practical tracking results have been reported in the literature for high-order odd-rational-power nonlinear dynamics (a chain of integrators whose power is the ratio of odd integers). Asymptotic tracking remains an open problem for such dynamics. This note gives a positive answer to this problem in the framework of prescribed performance...

The friction force at joints of engineering structures is usually unknown and not directly identifiable. This contribution explores a procedure for obtaining the governing equation of motion and correctly identifying the unknown Coulomb friction force of a mass-springdashpot system. In particular, a single degree-of-freedom system is...

In the industry field, the increasingly stringent requirements of lightweight structures are exposing the ultimately nonlinear nature of mechanical systems. This is extremely true for systems with moving parts and loose fixtures which show piecewise stiffness behaviours. Nevertheless, the numerical solution of systems with ideal piecewise...

In this work, we consider the problem of learning the Koopman operator for discrete-time autonomous systems. The learning problem is formulated as a generic constrained regularized empirical loss minimization in the infinite-dimensional space of linear operators. We show that a representer theorem holds for the introduced learning problem...

Floating Offshore Wind Turbines (FOWT) can harness the abundant offshore wind resource at reduced installation requirements. However, a further decrease in the development risks through higher confidence in the design and analysis methods is needed. The dynamic behaviour of FOWT systems is complex due to the strong interactions between the...

—This technical note addresses the problem of transforming a single-input–single-output discrete-time system into the extended observer form, which comprise a linear time-invariant observable component, and a nonlinear injection term, which depends on the input, output, and their forward shifts up to a finite order. Intrinsic necessary and...

Compositional simulation is computationally intensive for high-fidelity models due to thermodynamic equilibrium relations and the coupling of flow, transport and mass transfer. In this report, two methods for accelerated compositional simulation are outlined and demonstrated for a gas vaporization problem. The first method uses a proxy model...

To reduce the environmental impact of aircraft, technological innovations are required. The Flying-V could be one of these technical innovations, as research shows it could be up to 20 % more efficient than regular aircraft of the same size. The Flying-V however has low lateral control authority, and pitch<br/>break-up could occur for high...

Chandrashekar, A. (author)
Most physical phenomena be it mechanical, chemical or biological are inherently nonlinear in nature. In fact, it is the linear phenomenon that is the exception rather than the rule. By harnessing these nonlinearities one can obtain far greater information about the underlying physics and develop more sensitive and efficient devices. This is...
