Effect of Girder Damage on the Structural Behavior of Slab-on-Girder Bridges
There are many bridges around the world that have been constructed with inadequate vertical clearance. Such bridges are susceptible to over-height vehicle collisions, causing damage to the underside of the supporting ...
Technology Management and Analysis of Integrating Fuel Cell Systems in Gas Turbine Power Plants
In this thesis, comprehensive and detailed energy and economic analyses of integrating different types of fuel cells in gas turbine power plants are performed. The research investigates the performance of a hybrid system ...
Joint Transmitter / Receiver Optimization for Cognitive Radio Applications
The increasing demand for high data rate services is a primary motivation for the development of next generation mobile radio networks. As such, efficient utilization of the available radio spectrum is an important objective ...
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 ...
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.
2D Elasto-Plastic Finite Element Analysis of Tunnels in Dubai, UAE
Major cities in UAE in general and Dubai in particular are facing significant challenges in terms of traffic flow patterns. Tunnels are being considered as viable option to alleviate the problems faced by transportation ...
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 ...
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 ...
