Hybrid control of a 3-d structure by using semi-active dampers
A base isolated three storey 3-D building is semi-actively controlled not to exceed the maximum allowable base displacement. Large displacements are likely to cause failure in the isolation system, and hence, failure in ...
Function generation synthesis with a 2-DoF overconstrained double-spherical 7R mechanism using the method of decomposition and least squares approximation
This study addresses the approximate function generation synthesis with an overconstrained two degrees-of-freedom double spherical 7R mechanism using least squares approximation with equal spacing of the design points on ...
Thermodynamic performance evaluation of a geothermal drying system
Renewable energy sources such as geothermal energy can be used in drying processes as a heat source due to the high energy costs of fossil fuels. In this study, geothermal cabinet type dryer was constructed and situated ...
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 ...
Kinematic design of a reconfigurable deployable canopy
A reconfigurable and deployable mechanism is proposed for a canopy which can also be used as a tent or a semi-open structure. The proposed single degree-of-freedom mechanism has four as-sembly modes. The conditions for ...
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 ...
