Design of flexible manpower line walk cycles for a fixed number of operators.
(Taylor & Francis, 2005-01-01)
Flexible manpower lines (FMLs) are a form of flow process line in which operators are allocated 'walk cycles', i.e. a repetitive sequence in which to load and unload machine tools. The effective design of such lines is ...
A distributed e-commerce system for virtual product development teams.
(Professional Engineering Publishing, 2002-01-01)
This paper presents a distributed information system that facilitates virtual multidisciplinary product development activities. A growing problem today for many companies is that of facing up to increasing global competition, ...
The performance and oxidation stability of sustainable metalworking fluid derived from vegetable extracts.

A novel approach to collaborative product design and development environment.
(Professional Engineering Publishing, 2006-09-01)
Effects of incompatible boundary information in EIT on the convergence behavior of an iterative algorithm.
In electrical impedance tomography, currents are applied to the body through electrodes that are attached to the surface and the corresponding surface voltages are measured. Based on these boundary measurements, the internal ...
Advanced machine service support using Internet-enabled three-dimensional-based virtual engineering.
(Taylor & Francis, 2007-01-01)
In the era of globalization, one of the key factors for manufacturing machine builders/suppliers to remain competitive is their capability to provide cost-effective and comprehensive machine service and maintenance for ...
Dynamic optimization approach for solving an optimal scheduling problem in water distribution systems
A new dynamic optimization (DO) approach to solve large scale optimal scheduling problems for water distribution networks is presented. The main motivation of this research is to formulate an algorithm which is significantly ...
Aircraft dynamics at high incidence flight with account of unsteady aerodynamic effects.
An adequate modelling of nonlinear and unsteady aerodynamics at high incidence flight is important for design of future agile and stealth fighters as well as for improved prediction of high angle of attack dynamics of ...
Computational framework for investigation of aircraft nonlinear dynamics.
A computational framework based on qualitative theory, parameter continuation and bifurcation analysis is outlined and illustrated by a number of examples for inertia-coupled roll maneuvers. The focus is on the accumulation ...
Experimental and simulation studies on a single pass, double duct solar air-heater.
A mathematical model of a single pass, double duct solar air heater (SPDDSAH) is described. The model provides a design tool capable of predicting: incident solar radiation, heat transfer coefficients, mean air flow rates, ...
