Improving Airplane Touchdown Control By Utilizing The Adverse Elevator Effect, 2014 AAR Aerospace Consulting, LLC

#### Improving Airplane Touchdown Control By Utilizing The Adverse Elevator Effect, Nihad E. Daidzic Ph.D., Sc.D.

*International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace*

The main objective of this original research article is to understand the short-term dynamic behavior of the transport-category airplane during landing flare elevator control application. Increasing the pitch angle to arrest the sink rate, the elevator will have to produce negative lift to rotate the airplane’s nose upward. This has an immediate adverse effect of initially accelerating airplane downward. A mathematical model of landing flare based on the flat-Earth longitudinal dynamics of rigid airplane was developed which is realistic only on very short time-scales as pitch stiffness and damping were neglected. Pilot control scenarios using impulse and step elevator ...

Parameter Identification For Ordinary And Delay Differential Equations By Using Flat Inputs, 2014 German Aerospace Center

#### Parameter Identification For Ordinary And Delay Differential Equations By Using Flat Inputs, René Schenkendorf, Michael Mangold

*René Schenkendorf*

The concept of differential flatness has been widely used for nonlinear controller design. In this contribution, it is shown that flatness may also be a very useful property for parameter identification. An identification method based on flat inputs is introduced. The treatment of noisy measurements and the extension of the method to delay differential equations are discussed. The method is illustrated by two case studies: the well-known FitzHugh-Nagumo equations and a virus replication model with delays.

An Applied Functional And Numerical Analysis Of A 3-D Fluid-Structure Interactive Pde, 2014 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

#### An Applied Functional And Numerical Analysis Of A 3-D Fluid-Structure Interactive Pde, Thomas J. Clark

*Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research Papers in Mathematics*

We will present qualitative and numerical results on a partial differential equation (PDE) system which models a certain fluid-structure dynamics. In Chapter \ref{ChWellposedness}, the wellposedness of this PDE model is established by means of constructing for it a nonstandard semigroup generator representation; this representation is essentially accomplished by an appropriate elimination of the pressure. This coupled PDE model involves the Stokes system which evolves on a three dimensional domain $\mathcal{O}$ being coupled to a fourth order plate equation, possibly with rotational inertia parameter $\rho >0$, which evolves on a flat portion $\Omega$ of the boundary of $\mathcal{O ...

Modelling And Optimal Control Of A Time-Delayed Switched System In Fed-Batch Process, 2014 Shandong Institute of Business and Technology

#### Modelling And Optimal Control Of A Time-Delayed Switched System In Fed-Batch Process, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong

*Chongyang Liu*

The main control goal of the fed-batch process is to maximize the yield of target product as well as to minimize the operation costs simultaneously. Considering the existence of time delay and the switching nature in the fed-batch process, a time-delayed switched system is proposed to formulate the 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) production process. Some important properties of the system are also discussed. Taking the switching instants and the terminal time as the control variables, a free terminal time delayed optimal control problem is then presented. Using a time-scaling transformation and parameterizing the switching instants into new parameters, an equivalently ...

A Computational Method For Solving Time-Delay Optimal Control Problems With Free Terminal Time, 2014 Shandong Institute of Business and Technology

#### A Computational Method For Solving Time-Delay Optimal Control Problems With Free Terminal Time, Chongyang Liu, Ryan Loxton, Kok Lay Teo

*Chongyang Liu*

This paper considers a class of optimal control problems for general nonlinear time-delay systems with free terminal time. We first show that for this class of problems, the well-known time-scaling transformation for mapping the free time horizon into a fixed time interval yields a new time-delay system in which the time-delays are variable. Then, we introduce a control parameterization scheme to approximate the control variables in the new system by piecewise-constant functions. This yields an approximate finite-dimensional optimization problem with three types of decision variables: the control heights, the control switching times, and the terminal time in the original system ...

Optimal Control For A Nonlinear Time-Delay System In Fed-Batch Fermentation, 2013 Shandong Institute of Business and Technology

#### Optimal Control For A Nonlinear Time-Delay System In Fed-Batch Fermentation, Chongyang Liu, Zhaohua Gong, Enmin Feng

*Chongyang Liu*

The main control goal in fed-batch fermentation is to maximize yield of target product and reduce operation costs. In this paper, we propose a controlled nonlinear time-delay system, in which the flow rate of glycerol is taken as the control function and the terminal time of the fermentation as the optimization variable, to model the 1,3-propanediol (1,3-PD) production in fed-batch process. Taking the mass of 1,3-PD per unit time as the performance index, we formulate a constrained optimal control model with free terminal time to optimize the production process. Using a time-scale transformation, the optimal control problem ...

Predator Prey Models In Competitive Corporations, 2013 Olivet Nazarene University

#### Predator Prey Models In Competitive Corporations, Rachel Von Arb

*Honors Program Projects*

Predator prey models have been used for years to model animal populations. In recent years they have begun to be applied to economic situations. However, the stock market has remained largely untouched. We examine whether the success of competitive corporations such as Target and Walmart, as measured by the indicators of price per share, market share, and volume, can be modeled by various predator prey models. We consider the basic Lotka-Volterra model and the two-predator, one-prey model, as well as a ratio-dependent model. We discuss the use of numerical techniques and regression analysis as tools to estimate model parameters. For ...
