Nonlinear vibration and frequency response analysis of piezoelectric-based nanotube resonators
To study the vibration behaviour of nanotube-based structures, different models of nanotubes under the effects of piezoelectric layer, intermediate mass, fluid flow and structure curvature are developed. The frequency ...
Electrochemical analysis of CuCl/HCl electrolyser
This thesis presents an electrochemical study on a CuCl/HCl electrolyser which is the hydrogen generation step of the CuCl thermochemical hydrogen production cycle. The anode electrolyte is solution of 2 mol.l−1 CuCl(aq) ...
Optimal farm design with parabolic shape photovoltaic panels using multi-objective optimization
To acquire the maximum efficiency for solar electricity conversion, a solar panel has to absorb nearly every single photon of light emitted from the sun. The shape of the solar panel itself plays an important role in ...
Design and validation of active trailer steering systems for articulated heavy vehicles using driver-hardware-in-the-loop real-time simulation
To improve the low-speed maneuverability and high-speed lateral stability of Double Trailer Articulated Heavy Vehicles (DTAHVs), an Active Trailer Steering (ATS) system has been designed. To date, investigations on ATS ...
Single-stage boost integrated asymmetrical half-bridge AC-DC power converter with dual modulation for indoor led lighting
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) for indoor lighting is a promising technology which can lead to major energy saving and cost reductions. The major concerns of improving power factor and regulating the output current ripple ...
Design and development of an automated pellet inspection system for nuclear fuel pellets
A prototype for inline, non-destructive inspection of uranium dioxide (UO2) fuel pellets at production speeds of two pellets per second is presented. The system tests the surface of each cylindrical ceramic pellet using ...

User-centric analytics for expert crowds
Pervasiveness and permissiveness of social media made content verification an integral part of any analysis involving online generated data. The most natural and convenient way to assess content trustworthiness and validity ...
Development and application of an integrated aerodynamic and thermodynamic testing system for cars
In this thesis an integrated aerodynamic and thermodynamic testing system was developed. It consists of an incremental force measuring system (FMS) that was designed and constructed. In addition, a testing protocol was ...
Jointly optimal pre- and post-channel equalization and distributed beamforming in asynchronous bi-directional relay networks
We consider an asynchronous two-way relay network, consisting of two transceivers and multiple relays, where due to the propagation delays of different transceiver-relay paths being different, inter-symbol- interference ...
