Ground Penetrating Radar Technique for Bridge Deck Inspection
The rapid growth of infrastructure in the UAE has caused a proportional growth in the transportation system. Bridges are among the major elements in the transportation system that requires continuous monitoring and maintenance ...
Power Characteristics of Selective Buried Oxide MOSFET
Power dissipation is an important factor in electronic circuit design due to the decreasing feature size of microelectronic devices, high clock frequencies, and large die size, as well as the growing number of mobile, ...
Designing Low Frequency I.C Filter Using Pseudo Resistor for Biopotential Measurements
Standard medical diagnosis requires attaching sensors or electrodes to the patient and then connecting these electrodes to bulky equipment powered by mains supply. This is usually an acceptable procedure for short term ...
Suppression of Unstable Flow by Using Rough Surfaces at Small Mass Flow Rates in a Radial Diffuser
The operation of centrifugal compressor systems is limited at low-mass flow rates by fluid flow instabilities leading to rotating stall or surge. These instabilities limit the flow range in which the compressor can operate. ...
Optimization of Commercially Off the Shelf (COTS) Electric Propulsion System for Low Speed Fuel Cell UAV
Fuel cell technology offers higher energy density than any other onboard electric power source. However, despite its high energy content per unit mass, the fuel cell is lacking in power density ratio compared to Lithium-Polymer ...
Nonlinear Adaptive Control of Quadrotor
In this research, nonlinear and adaptive controls of quadrotors are designed. The system is considered as an under-actuated system, which has six degrees of freedom (DOF) and four actuators. In addition, a nonlinear model ...
Artificial Intelligence-Based Modeling of the Nonlinear Behavior of Buckling-Restrained Braces
The present research attempts to investigate and compare various artificial intelligence techniques to model the dynamic nonlinear behavior of Buckling Restrained Braces (BRBs). The various intelligent models are developed ...
Design and Construction of a Cross-Laminated Timber Skyscraper
Concrete and steel are currently the building materials in most skyscraper construction. Due to their negative impact on the environment, timber has been proposed as an alternative material.
Modeling Smartphone Power
Battery technology has not advanced rapidly enough to keep pace with the growing energy demands of today's portable electronics. Leading this critical need for energy are smartphone devices which are being deployed and ...
CFD Based Airfoil Shape Optimization for Aerodynamic Drag Reduction
Commercial airplanes generally follow specific flight profiles consisting of take-off, climb, cruise, descend and landing. These flight profiles essentially change the freestream conditions in which the aircrafts operate. ...
