Quantitative Assessment Of Sample Stiffness And Sliding Friction From Force Curves In Atomic Force Microscopy, Nancy Burnham, Jon Pratt, Gordon Shaw, Lee Kumanchik 2010 Worcester Polytechnic Institute

Quantitative Assessment Of Sample Stiffness And Sliding Friction From Force Curves In Atomic Force Microscopy, Nancy Burnham, Jon Pratt, Gordon Shaw, Lee Kumanchik

Nancy A. Burnham

It has long been recognized that the angular deflection of an atomic force microscope(AFM) cantilever under “normal” loading conditions can be profoundly influenced by the friction between the tip and the surface. It is shown here that a remarkably quantifiable hysteresis occurs in the slope of loading curves whenever the normal flexural stiffness of the AFM cantilever is greater than that of the sample. This situation arises naturally in cantilever-on-cantilever calibration, but also when trying to measure the stiffness of nanomechanical devices or test structures, or when probing any type of surface or structure that is much more compliant ...


Measurement And Analysis Of ‘Small’ Packages In Next-Day Air Shipments, Sher Paul Singh, Jay Singh, K. C. Chiang, K. Saha 2010 Michigan State University

Measurement And Analysis Of ‘Small’ Packages In Next-Day Air Shipments, Sher Paul Singh, Jay Singh, K. C. Chiang, K. Saha

Jay Singh

Packaged goods are shipped globally using various means of transportation. Over the past two decades, there has been a continuous increase in studies that measure and analyze dynamic events that occur to packages during transportation and handling. These data offer useful information to design and test packages, and provide protection from potential hazards like drops and impacts. However, none of the past studies are directed towards single packages regarded as 'smalls'. 'Smalls' or small-package product systems are defined as those with volume of less than 0.013 m3, a longest dimension of 0.356 m and a weight of 4 ...

Microtensile Bond Strength Of Self-Adhesive Resin-Based Dental Cement, SELDA KESKIN 2010 The Pennsilyvania State University, Department of Chemistry

Microtensile Bond Strength Of Self-Adhesive Resin-Based Dental Cement, Selda Keskin


This study investigated the effectiveness of bleaching agents on the micro tensile bond strength (mTBS) of self-adhesive luting cement and enamel. A total of 126 samples were prepared from the labial surfaces of permanent human maxillary central incisors and assigned into three groups with 42 samples each as: control, enamel bleached with 10% hydrogen peroxide (HP), and enamel bleached with 10% carbamide peroxide (CP). Rely X Unicem1 (3 M, ESPE) was used as self-adhesive resin cement. The total testing period for bleaching was selected as 14 days and the bleaching agents were applied 8 hours a day. The statistical one-way ...


The Performance Of Wind Turbine Smart Rotor Control Approaches During Extreme Loads, Matthew Lackner, Gijs van Kuik 2010 University of Massachusetts - Amherst

The Performance Of Wind Turbine Smart Rotor Control Approaches During Extreme Loads, Matthew Lackner, Gijs Van Kuik

Matthew Lackner

Reducing the loads experienced by wind turbine rotor blades can lower the cost of energy of wind turbines. “Smart rotor control” concepts have emerged as a solution to reduce fatigue loads on wind turbines. In this approach, aerodynamic load control devices are distributed along the span of the blade, and through a combination of sensing, control, and actuation, these devices dynamically control the blade loads. While smart rotor control approaches are primarily focused on fatigue load reductions, extreme loads on the blades may also be critical in determining the lifetime of components, and the ability to reduce these loads as ...

Material Properties Of Caenorhabditis Elegans Swimming At Low Reynolds Number, Josué Sznitman, Prashant Kishore Purohit, Predrag Krajacic, Samuel Todd Lamitina, Paulo E. Arratia

Departmental Papers (MEAM)

Undulatory locomotion, as seen in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, is a common swimming gait of organisms in the low Reynolds number regime, where viscous forces are dominant. Although the nematode’s motility is expected to be a strong function of its material properties, measurements remain scarce. Here, the swimming behavior of C. elegans is investigated in experiments and in a simple model. Experiments reveal that nematodes swim in a periodic fashion and generate traveling waves that decay from head to tail. The model is able to capture the experiments’ main features and is used to estimate the nematode’s Young ...

Statistical Approach For Yield Optimization For Minimum Energy Operation In Subthreshold Circuits Considering Variability Issues, Md. Waliullah Khan Nomani, Mohab Anis, Goutam Koley

Faculty Publications

The supply voltage (V-dd) and threshold voltage (V-th) are two significant design variables that directly impact the performance and power consumption of circuits. The scaling of these voltages has become a popular option to satisfy performance and low power requirements. Subthreshold operation is a compelling approach for energy-constrained applications where processor speed is less important. However, subthreshold designs show dramatically increased sensitivity to process variations due to the exponential relationship of subthreshold drive current with V-th variation and drastically growing leakage power. If there is uncertainty in the value of the threshold or supply voltage, the power advantages of this ...
