Observer based adaptive output feedback tracking control of robot manipulators
In this paper, we propose an observer based adaptive output feedback (OFB) tracking controller for rigid-link robot manipulators. Specifically, we used a model independent observer in conjuction with a desired compensation ...
Polycyclic and nitro musks in indoor air: A primary school classroom and a women's sport center
(Blackwell Publishing, 2010-12)
Indoor air gas and particulate-phase samples (PM2.5) were collected from a primary school classroom and a women's sport center because children are one of the sensitive population subgroups and women are frequent users of ...
Two-dimensional finite elements model for selenium transport in saturated and unsaturated zones
A two-dimensional finite element model was developed to simulate species of selenium transport in two dimensions in both saturated and unsaturated soil zones. The model considers water, selenate, selenite, and selenomethionine ...
Heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics of fin-tube heat exchangers with different types of vortex generator configurations
(Begell House Inc., 2010)
A fin-and-tube heat exchanger with three different types of vortex generators is investigated in this study in order to observe the effects of these vortex generators on heat transfer and pressure drop characteristics. The ...
Effect of high aluminum concentration in water resources on human health, case study: Biga Peninsula, northwest part of Turkey
Widespread and intense zones of silicified, propylitic, and argillic alteration exist as outcrop around the Biga Peninsula, NW Turkey. Most of the springs in the study area surface out from these altered volcanic rocks. ...
Interaction of sodium dodecyl sulfate with poly(ethyleneimine) in bulk solution and at the air-solution interface
(Taylor & Francis, 2010-01)
Interaction of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) with the cationic polyelectrolyte poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) was investigated in this study. Turbidity measurements were performed in order to analyze the interaction and complex ...
Piping network design of geothermal district heating systems: Case study for a university campus
Geothermal district heating system design consists of two parts: heating system and piping network design. District heating system design and a case study for a university campus is given in Yildirim et al.  in detail. ...
Exact solutions for the longitudinal vibration of non-uniform rods [J. Sound Vib. 207 (1997) 721-729]
The aims of this communication are to correct the frequency equation for a free–free rod with area variation A(x)=A0 s in2(ax+b) in a published article  and present the corrected non-dimensional natural frequencies.
Water vapor and oxygen-barrier performance of corn-zein coated polypropylene films
A novel corn-zein coating structure on polypropylene (PP) films was developed to examine its feasibility as an alternative water vapor and oxygen-barrier for flexible packaging industry. The barrier properties of the ...
Comparison of fatty acid profiles and mid-infrared spectral data for classification of olive oils
(Wiley-VCH Verlag, 2010-02)
The composition of olive oils may vary depending on environmental and technological factors. Fatty acid profiles and Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy data in combination with chemometric methods were used ...
