Recent Submissions

  • Randell, Charles James (2017-05-25)
    This dissertation presents a novel underwater machine vision technique which uses the optical properties of water to extract range information from colour images. By exploiting the fact that the attenuation of light in ...
  • Losier, Valérie Raymonde (2017-05-25)
    Liquid water management in the cathode of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC) is crucial to efficient transport of gases and to maintaining electrochemical activity in the catalyst layer. Cracks and interfacial ...
  • Huo, Yiming (2017-05-18)
    The last two decades have witnessed the CMOS processes and design techniques develop and prosper with unprecedented speed. They have been widely employed in contemporary integrated circuit (IC) commercial products resulting ...
  • Wilson, Preethy (2017-05-18)
    The Internet of things (IoT) recently blossomed remarkably and has been transforming the everyday physical entities around us into an ecosystem of information that will enrich our lives in unimaginable ways. Authentication ...
  • Thomas, Robin (2017-05-17)
    Quadrotor is one type of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL). In this project, the well-established Sliding Mode Control (SMC) approach is studied and applied to a quadrotor to ...
  • Li, Hui (2017-05-15)
    Sculptured parts, characterized by interconnected and bounded parametric surface patches, are widely used in aerospace, automobile, shipbuilding and plastic mold industries due to their functional and aesthetic properties. ...
  • Kirmani, Ghulam Ashraf-Ul-Harmain (2017-05-11)
    Fatigue life prediction following overloads is required in such applications as, aerospace, automobile, and pressure vessels industries for damage tolerant design. Modelling of life prediction in fatigue is complicated ...
  • Kerr, Ronald W. (2017-05-11)
    Rate 1/2 systematic recursive convolutional codes over integer rings modulo-q are investigated for their performance. The investigation examines the performance in severe fading and additive white Gaussian noise for codes ...
  • Mohammadzadeh, Alireza; Struchtrup, Henning (International Journal for Heat and Mass Transfer, 2015)
    Recently Struchtrup (2013) proposed an extension to the original Maxwell boundary conditions for the Boltzmann equation which introduces velocity dependent accommodation coefficients. These boundary conditions are implemented ...
  • Bharadwaj, Devesh; Fyles, Thomas M.; Struchtrup, Henning (J. Non-Equilibrium Thermodynamics, 2016)
    One promising sustainable energy source is the chemical potential difference between salt and freshwater. The membrane process of pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) has been the most widely investigated means to harvest ...
  • Gupta, Vinay Kumar; Struchtrup, Henning; Torrilhon, Manuel (Physics of Fluids, 2016)
    The applicability of the order of magnitude method [H. Struchtrup, “Stable transport equations for rarefied gases at high orders in the Knudsen number,” Phys. Fluids 16, 3921–3934 (2004)] is extended to binary gas mixtures ...
  • Mohammadzadeh, Alireza; Struchtrup, Henning (AIP Conference Proceedings, 2016)
    Heat transfer in solids is modeled by deriving the macroscopic equations for phonon transport from the phonon-Boltzmann equation. In these equations, the Callaway model with frequency dependent relaxation time is considered ...
  • Rahimi, Behnam; Struchtrup, Henning (AIP Conference Proceedings, 2016)
    A high-order macroscopic model for the accurate description of rarefied polyatomic gas flows is used to explore heat transfer in rarefied polyatomic gases. The unsteady heat conduction of a gas at rest is studied numerically ...
  • Timokhin, M. Yu; Struchtrup, Henning; Kokhanchik, A. A.; Bondar, Ye. A. (AIP Conference Proceedings, 2016)
    This paper studies the applicability of various versions of the regularized 13-moment system (R13) as applied to the problem of the shock wave structure in a monatomic Maxwell gas in a wide range of Mach numbers (1.0<M<8.0). ...
  • Rehouma, Hichem (2017-05-09)
    In the past decade, the application of adaptive beamforming methods to medical ultrasound imaging has become a field of increased interest, due to their ability to achieve superior ultrasound image quality. Such enhancements, ...
  • Chen, Haiying (2017-05-04)
    The class of frequency-response-masking (FRM) filters, first investigated by Y.C. Lim in 1980s, has shown to provide considerably improved performance for the design of finite impulse response (FIR) filters with narrow ...
  • Bryce, Robert William (2017-05-03)
    Currently, new algorithms are being incorporated into operating systems to deal with a host of new requirements from multimedia applications. These new algorithms deal with soft real-time scheduling, different memory ...
  • Chen, Fei (2017-05-03)
    Applying linear programming (LP) to spectroscopy techniques, such as IR, Raman and SFG, is a new approach to extract the molecular orientation information at surfaces. In Hung’s previous research, he has shown how applying ...
  • Li, Yunlong (2017-05-01)
    GitHub labels are designed for helping people to classify and recognize different issues. When naming a label, people may use different word formats (e.g., bug, Bug, bugs, etc.) to express the same meaning. Therefore, ...
  • Sahbaei, Parto (2017-05-01)
    We present an implicit approach for constructing smooth isolated or interconnected 3-D inscribed volumes which can be employed for volumetric modeling of various kinds of spongy or porous structures, such as volcanic rocks, ...
