Drilling resistance: A method to investigate bone quality
(Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Wroclaw University of Technology, 2017-03)
Purpose: Bone drilling is a major part of orthopaedic surgery performed during the internal fixation of fractured bones. At present, information related to drilling force, drilling torque, rate of drill-bit penetration and ...
A Multi-mode Waveguide Tunnel Channel Model for High-Speed Train Wireless Communication Systems
(9th European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP), 2015, 2015-08)
The recent development of high-speed trains (HSTs) introduces new challenges to wireless communication systems for HSTs. For demonstrating the feasibility of these systems, accurate channel models which can mimic key ...
Using Lean Philosophy to Improve Passenger Departure Flow in Abu Dhabi Airport
(IJSER Publications, 2015-07)
Lean is an established process improvement philosophy to achieve the operational excellence and the benefits can be more than just improving the process. This is evident as the benefits of Lean are truly exploited in ...
Energy and Utilities Infrastructure: Can All be in One?
In today‘s developed society it is fully expected that every household is provided with general utility products such as heating, lighting, water supply, communication, and waste removal. Provision of these utility products ...
Interface model between the bioreactor and the membrane in a membrane bioreactor for wastewater treatment.
This paper proposes a structure of an integrated mathematical model of a membrane bioreactor (MBR) and describes the links between two main parts of a MBR model: the bioreactor and the membrane. In case of an immersed MBR ...
On a variational formulation of the Maximum Energy Dissipation principle for nonequilibrium chemical thermodynamics
In this work we revise the applicability of the optimal control and variational approach to the maximum energy dissipation (MED) principle in non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The optimal control analogies for the kinetical ...
Monitoring and Performance Analysis of a Large Non-domestic Ground Source Heat Pump Installation
Application of GSHP systems to provide heating and cooling for non-domestic buildings is seen as a viable and effective way of reducing carbon emissions and achieving design renewable energy targets. The application of ...
Numerical Simulation of Bone Cutting: Hybrid SPH-FE Approach
(Numerical Methods and Advanced Simulation in Biomechanics and Biological Processes, 2017-10-05)
Model-based control of renewable energy systems in buildings
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc., 2006)
The paper describes a research project concerned with the problem of supervisory control of systems which combine a range of heat sources with active and passive thermal storage. The work is based around a prototype building ...
