Damping of Seismic Vibrations of a 3D Asymmetrical Building Model with Multiple TMD’s
In this paper, the authors investigate the control of the seismic response of a three dimensional asymmetrical tier-building model, with a combination of three tuned mass dampers (TMD) located on the upper floor of the ...
Smart actuation of inlet guide vanes for small turbine engine
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have gained popularity over the past few years to become an indispensable part of aerial missions that include reconnaissance, surveillance, and communication . As a result, advancements ...
Design of a piezoceramic-driven synthetic-jet actuator for aerodynamic performance improvement
The interest in synthetic-jet actuators is elicited by their employment in fluid-control applications, including boundary-layer control, combustion control etc. These actuators are zero net-mass-flux devices, and generally ...
Investigations on the development of a mixed displacement-pressure formulation for an anelastic displacement-field finite element
Space and weapon delivery systems contain guidance components and payload that need to be protected from the extremely harsh acoustic excitation present during launch operations. The above example represents just one ...
