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.
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 ...
Behaviour of Shear Deficient Reinforced Concrete Beams with Externally Bonded Aluminum Plates
Enhancing the shear capacity of reinforced concrete (RC) beams was done using many different ways and materials. Steel and Fiber reinforced polymers are the most common materials used to strengthen RC beams in shear. ...
Establishing Autonomous AUS-Quadrotor
Vertical takeoff and landing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (VTOL-UAVs) are superior to their counterparts fixed wing UAVs for urban applications. The objective of this thesis is to establish a VTOL UAV platform to complement ...
Thermo-economic Optimization of Hybrid Combined Power Cycles Using Heliostat Field Collector
Electricity has an essential role in our daily life. However, with the ever increasing cost of fossil fuels and natural gas, power generation with higher efficiency and lower capital cost is in high demand. Nowadays, global ...
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 ...
Conceptual Design and Analysis of Concentrated Photovoltaic Thermal (CPVT) Solar Collectors with Different Configurations
In light of the globally dwindling fossil fuel reserves, escalating fuel prices, and growing environmental concerns; the need for energy-efficient and environmentally-benign sustainable energy solutions becomes direr than ...
