Design of a reconfigurable deployable structure
This paper introduces a reconfigurable mechanised structure design composed of planar linkage units. The alternative forms that a linkage can be constructed with the same links and connections are called configurations or ...
Design and analysis of a parallel mechanism for kinematically redundant hybrid planar laser cutting machine
Conventional planar laser cutting machines cannot achieve high accelerations, because the required precision values cannot be achieved due to the high inertial loads. Machines configured as kinematically redundant mechanisms ...
Function generation synthesis of planar 5R mechanism
This paper deals with the function generation problem for a planar five-bar mechanism. The inputs to the mechanism are selected as one of the fixed joints and the mid-joint, whereas the remaining fixed joint represents the ...
Thermal and acid treatment of diatom frustules
(International OCSCO World Press, 2011-06)
Purpose: Diatoms, belonging to Bacilariophyta family, are single-celled microscopic (1-100 micron) plants living in aquatic environment. The diatom cell is protected inside a shell (frustule) constructed from amorphous ...
Function synthesis of the planar 5R mechanism using least squares approximation
In this paper, the problem of function generation synthesis of planar 5R mechanism is studied using the least squares approximation method with equal spacing of the design points. The study represents a case study for ...
Synthesis and experiments of inherently balanced umbrella canopy designs
(Makina Teorisi Derneği, 2015-06-14)
This paper shows how umbrella canopies and umbrella canopy-like mechanisms can be designed inherently balanced. Inherently balanced means that the center of mass of the moving parts remains stationary at a single point for ...
Numerical analysis of planar cam follower mechanisms
Given planar cam profiles and follower types, this paper analyzes their displacement diagrams numerically. The algorithm is based on the concept that a cam and its follower must have a common normal at the contact point. ...
Derivation of input/output relationships for the Bennett 6R linkages based on the method of decomposition
The Bennett overconstrained 6R linkages are the double-planar, the double-spherical and the plano-spherical 6R linkages. These mechanisms are obtained by combining simple planar and/or spher-ical mechanisms and then removing ...
Transforming VHDL to timed automata
This report presents the transformation of behavioral VHDL programs to Timed Automata.
Model checker-based delay fault testing of sequential circuits
This paper applies model checker-based testing, a well-known method from software engineering, to the delay fault testing of synchronous sequential logic circuits. We first model the circuit as timed automata to reveal its ...
