Flow-sound interaction mechanism of a single spirally finned cylinder in cross-flow
Over the years, some effort has been expended in the improvement of heat transfer performance in tubular heat exchangers. This can be achieved by adding different types of fins to the outer tube surface, effectively ...
Development and analysis of techniques to improve air-cooling and temperature uniformity in battery packs
One of the challenges to the advancement of electric vehicles is the requirement of an effective thermal management system to maintain the temperature, and temperature uniformity of the battery pack and the cell within the ...
A pragmatic testbed for distributed systems
Distributed systems have become ubiquitous and they continue their growth through a range of services. With advances in resource virtualization technology such as Virtual Machines and software containers, developers no ...
Localization of a robotic crawler for CANDU fuel channel inspection
This thesis discusses the design and development of a pipe crawling robot for the purpose of CANDU fuel channel inspection. The pipe crawling robot shall be capable of deploying the existing CIGAR (Channel Inspection and ...
Development of an autonomous radiation mapping robot
The development of an autonomous robotic platform for generating radiation maps is presented. An integrated autonomous exploration algorithm, Particle Swarm Optimization algorithm, and the ability to accurately localize ...
Development of multi-wheel drivetrain control system for future electric combat vehicle
In modern times, electric vehicle and autonomous driving control technology have been rapidly evolving for use in civilian passenger vehicles. They bring forth many benefits in improved mobility, cost savings and life-preserving ...
Fault tolerant control of active trailer steering systems for multi-trailer articulated heavy vehicles
Faults in a controlled plant often deteriorate the system performance. In severe cases, faults pose a risk of component damage, plant shutdown or even personnel safety. Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) aims at preventing the ...
Design of active trailer steering systems for long combination vehicles using robust control techniques
The exponential growth in freightage and the ever-increasing traffic congestion has aided Long Combination Vehicles (LCVs) to emerge as an economical and pragmatic solution for freight transport compared to single unit ...
