Effect Of Sky Conditions On Light Transmission Through A Suspended Particle Device Switchable Glazing, ARITRA GHOSH, Brian Norton, Aidan Duffy 2017 Dublin Institute of Technology

Effect Of Sky Conditions On Light Transmission Through A Suspended Particle Device Switchable Glazing, Aritra Ghosh, Brian Norton, Aidan Duffy

Articles

A suspended particle device (SPD) switchable glazing changes its state from opaque to transparent in the presence of a power supply. SPD glazing's near normal transmission varies with incident angle and clearness index. Due to a lower diffuse component, higher glazing transmission ensues at higher clearness indices. Transmittance values for different azimuthal incident angle for a SPD glazing for its “transparent” and “opaque” states have been determined. In Dublin, below 0.5 clearness index, isotropic diffuse transmittance was prevailed while transmission of direct insolation was dominant above 0.5 clearness index. For south facing vertical plane SPD glazing transmittance ...


Improving The Player's Recruiting Process By Using Scenario Based Analysis Methodology, Dotan I. Shvorin, Kevin M. Taaffe 2017 Clemson University

Improving The Player's Recruiting Process By Using Scenario Based Analysis Methodology, Dotan I. Shvorin, Kevin M. Taaffe

Dotan Shvorin

High performance physical characteristics can be found today in most of the potential recruitsfor any athletic program and it has become increasingly dificult to select the right candidatebased solely on these characteristics. As a result there is a growing need for a recruiter to evaluatethe decision-making capability of a player in order to understand the mind of the player inaddition to the player physical assessment. We employ scenario-based analysis to evaluate suchdecision-making capabilities while enabling any recruiting to customize the potential candidateevaluation, based on the specific program's needs. The proposed method provides a platformfor decision making evaluation within a ...


Power Requirements Of Biogas Upgrading By Water Scrubbing And Biomethane Compression: Comparative Analysis Of Various Plant Configurations, Wojciech M. Budzianowski, Christophe E. Wylock, Przemysław A. Marciniak 2016 Wroclaw University of Technology

Power Requirements Of Biogas Upgrading By Water Scrubbing And Biomethane Compression: Comparative Analysis Of Various Plant Configurations, Wojciech M. Budzianowski, Christophe E. Wylock, Przemysław A. Marciniak

Wojciech Budzianowski

Biogas upgrading by water scrubbing followed by biomethane compression is an environmentally benign process. It may be achieved using various plant configurations characterised by various power requirements with associated effects on biomethane sustainability. Therefore, the current study has been undertaken to systematically investigate the power requirements of a range of water scrubbing options. Two groups of water scrubbing are analysed: (1) high pressure water scrubbing (HPWS) and (2) near-atmospheric pressure water scrubbing (NAPWS). A water scrubbing plant model is constructed, experimentally validated and simulated for seven upgrading plant configurations. Simulation results show that the power requirement of biogas upgrading in ...


Total Chain Integration Of Sustainable Biorefinery Systems, Wojciech M. Budzianowski, Karol Postawa 2016 Wroclaw University of Technology

Total Chain Integration Of Sustainable Biorefinery Systems, Wojciech M. Budzianowski, Karol Postawa

Wojciech Budzianowski

Biorefineries are increasingly important commercial facilities for the production of biofuels, biopower and various biomaterials from biomass with potentials to displace several existing industries currently based on polluting and finite fossil resources. Biorefinery systems consist of biorefinery facilities and their entire value chain. Integration of biorefinery systems aims at optimising the use of energies and materials in the total chain from biomass plantations to end product utilisation and is therefore capable of successfully improving economic viability and sustainability of biorefineries. Total Chain Integration can minimise capital and operating expenditures, maximise the quality, quantity and value of biorefinery bioproducts as well ...


Evolutionary View Planning For Optimized Uav Terrain Modeling In A Simulated Environment, Ronald A. Martin, Ivan Rojas, Kevin W. Franke, John Hedengren 2016 Brigham Young University

Evolutionary View Planning For Optimized Uav Terrain Modeling In A Simulated Environment, Ronald A. Martin, Ivan Rojas, Kevin W. Franke, John Hedengren

All Faculty Publications

This work demonstrates the use of genetic algorithms in optimized view planning for 3D reconstruction applications using small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The quality of UAV site models is currently highly dependent on manual pilot operations or grid-based automation solutions. When applied to 3D structures, these approaches can result in gaps in the total coverage or inconsistency in final model resolution. Genetic algorithms can effectively explore the search space to locate image positions that produce high quality models in terms of coverage and accuracy. A fitness function is defined, and optimization parameters are selected through semi-exhaustive search. A novel simulation ...

Experiments On Differential Scalar Mixing In Turbulence In A Sheared, Stratified Flow, P. Ryan Jackson, Chris R. Rehmann 2016 United States Geological Survey

Experiments On Differential Scalar Mixing In Turbulence In A Sheared, Stratified Flow, P. Ryan Jackson, Chris R. Rehmann

Chris R. Rehmann

Laboratory experiments were performed to measure differential diffusion of temperature and salinity across a sheared density interface. The eddy diffusivity of temperature KT exceeded the eddy diffusivity of salinity KS by as much as 1.5 orders of magnitude at low ε/νN2, where ε is the rate of dissipation of turbulent kinetic energy, ν is the kinematic viscosity, and N is the buoyancy frequency in the pycnocline. The diffusivity ratio d = KS/KT increased from about 0.05 to 1 over the range 0.1 < ε/νN2 < 40. These differences made the eddy diffusivity of density depend on the density ratio. The trend of d with ε/νN2 was ...


Evaluation Of Mean Velocity And Turbulence Measurements With Adcps, Elizabeth A. Nystrom, Chris R. Rehmann, Kevin A. Oberg 2016 United States Geological Survey

Evaluation Of Mean Velocity And Turbulence Measurements With Adcps, Elizabeth A. Nystrom, Chris R. Rehmann, Kevin A. Oberg

Chris R. Rehmann

To test the ability of acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs) to measure turbulence, profiles measured with two pulse-to-pulse coherent ADCPs in a laboratory flume were compared to profiles measured with an acoustic Doppler velocimeter, and time series measured in the acoustic beam of the ADCPs were examined. A four-beam ADCP was used at a downstream station, while a three-beam ADCP was used at a downstream station and an upstream station. At the downstream station, where the turbulence intensity was low, both ADCPs reproduced the mean velocity profile well away from the flume boundaries; errors near the boundaries were due to ...

The Big One: Earthquakes, Liquefaction And Engineering Geology In California, Connor Roberts 2016 Pomona College

The Big One: Earthquakes, Liquefaction And Engineering Geology In California, Connor Roberts

Connor Roberts

Liquefaction is a deadly result of earthquakes. The San Andreas Fault is due for a large earthquake which could have serious impacts on the populations of both Los Angeles and San Francisco. Hopefully the cities' histories of earthquakes and the resulting legislature and building practices will allow these two major metropolitan areas to avoid a catastrophe like the one in Christchurch in 2011. Engineering Geology, a field largely established in California, will save millions of lives in the event of the "Big One".

A Multiband Ofdma Heterogeneous Network For Millimeter Wave 5g Wireless Applications, Solmaz Niknam, Ali Arshad Nasir, Hani Mehrpouyan, Balasubramaniam Natarajan

Hani Mehrpouyan

Emerging fifth generation (5G) wireless networks require massive bandwidth in higher frequency bands, extreme network densities, and flexibility of supporting multiple wireless technologies in order to provide higher data rates and seamless coverage. It is expected that utilization of the large bandwidth in the millimeter-wave (mmWave) band and deployment of heterogeneous networks (HetNets) will help address the data rate requirements of 5G networks. However, high pathloss and shadowing in the mmWave frequency band, strong interference in the HetNets due to massive network densification, and coordination of various air interfaces are challenges that must be addressed. In this paper, we consider ...

‘‘Can I Drop It This Time?’’ Gender And Collaborative Group Dynamics In An Engineering Design-Based Afterschool Program, Jessica Schnittka, Christine Schnittka

Journal of Pre-College Engineering Education Research (J-PEER)

The 21st century has brought an increasing demand for expertise in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Although strides have been made towards increasing gender diversity in several of these disciplines, engineering remains primarily male dominated. In response, the U.S. educational system has attempted to make engineering curriculum more engaging, informative, and welcoming to girls. Specifically, project-based and design-based learning pedagogies promise to make engineering interesting and accessible for girls while enculturating them into the world of engineering and scientific inquiry. Outcomes for girls learning in these contexts have been mixed. The purpose of this study was to explore ...


In-Plane Loading Of Brick Veneer Over Wood Shear Walls, Elias Anis Toubia, James M. Lintz 2016 University of Dayton

In-Plane Loading Of Brick Veneer Over Wood Shear Walls, Elias Anis Toubia, James M. Lintz

Elias Toubia

In the design of wood stud walls with brick veneer, current design building codes specify that the wood stud wall should resist all in-plane and out-of-plane loads (IBC 2009). For out-of-plane loads, this assumption is entirely justified as the brittle brick veneer will crack and lose its capacity to resist bending. For in-plane loads, the brick veneer is significantly stiffer than the wood shear wall, and the veneer is unlikely to crack before the wood shear wall reaches its allowable capacity. The assumption that the wood shear wall resists the entire load is based on the further assumption that the ...
