    The equations of linear elasticity for rotationally symmetric deformations are expanded using a small parameter related to the thickness to radius of curvature ratio of the shell to obtain the classical thin shell equations of conical shells as a first approximation. These classical equations with variable coefficients permit further asymptotic expansions in the cases of steep as well as shallow cones, yielding systems of equations with constant coefficients. Solutions of these equations are used to compute the influence coefficients relating edge loads and edge displacements.

    5/22/2018 · Applied Mechanics
    The feasibility of two-beam speckle interferometry for the study of time-varying mechanical deformation of diffusely reflecting bodies is demonstrated. A sequence of speckle patterns produced by a vibrating cantilever beam was recorded photographically by means of a high-speed camera. These speckle photographs were subsequently digitized using a CCD camera for input into an image processing computer. By gray-level subtraction of carefully registered pairs of speckle images, fringes corresponding to the relative surface displacements were obtained. A sequence of these fringe patterns was reconstructed to obtain the time-history of deformation. These are compared with time-frozen (strobed) patterns for the same body.

    4/25/2018 · Applied Mechanics
    The development of a nondestructive, full-field, quantitative optical technique, and its feasibility to study dynamic deformations of opaque and diffusively reflecting solids under transient loads, are discussed. The technique involves recording a sequence of dynamically changing two-beam speckle interference patterns (also called holographic speckle patterns) of a rapidly deforming body which is doubly illuminated by a laser light source. The time sequence of speckle patterns is recorded by means of a high-speed camera on an ultra-sensitive 35-mm film. The developed negatives are then digitized by a CCD camera into an image processing system. An initial speckle pattern corresponding to the undeformed state of the object is taken as the reference, and subsequent speckle patterns are digitally subtracted (reconstructed) from it to produce time-varying fringe patterns corresponding to the relative deformation of the test object. In order to gain confidence that the technique can be used to record truly transient deformation, it is tested here on a vibrating plate at resonance, thereby obtaining the evolution of the fringe pattern during 1/2 cycle of deformation corresponding to 160 µs.

    4/6/2018 · Engineering
    A gray level transformation is presented to simulate the interferometric process. The transformation uses properties of sinusoidal functions to produce rapidly varying intensities from those with nearly zero gradients. The transformation when used in conjunction with optical techniques, such as holographic interferometry, has the effect of increasing the optical sensitivity and producing a large number of fringes where otherwise only a fraction of a fringe would be observed. This technique is ideal for holographic analysis of deformations in microscopic regions.

    An In-Vehicle Data Acquisition/Monitoring Device (Data Logger) has been developed to be used for evaluating the performance of alternators during vehicle operation. It can be linked to other controllers and electronic devices for exchange of information through the use of a serial communication port. By utilizing a microcontroller, eight analog and three TTL level signals are measured and recorded in non-volatile EEPROM memory devices. The system measures temperatures of critical components, system voltage and rotational speed.

    Companies invest considerable time, effort and money when selecting and implementing a major mission critical computer system. Successfully completing the process can be complicated and frustrating; as a result, it doesn't take a lot for implementations to fail. The problem is that the business organization that undertook the implementation in the first place is stuck - stuck with the time, money and the inconvenience of not having the system they purchased. The company has not only left without the new system, they are back to using the systems that they originally thought so inadequate that they committed to spending the time and money for a new system.

    Implementing a mission critical computer system has a significant impact upon a business organization. Successfully completing the process can be complicated and frustrating; as a result, it doesn't take a lot for the implementation to fail. Once an implementation fails, there is always enough blame to go around. The problem is that the business organization that undertook the implementation in the first place is stuck – stuck with the time, money and the inconvenience of not having the system they purchased. The company has not only left without the new system, they are back to using the systems that they originally thought sufficiently inadequate that they committed to spending the time and money for a new system. Successful litigation will help – but will not make them whole. But worse, a failed litigation only compounds the problem.

    Recordings involving cellular telephones or personal digital assistants (“PDAs”) are increasingly the source evidence in audio forensic examinations, compared to recordings originating with other devices such as hand-held digital recorders. On modern PDA cellular telephones recordings can be made either directly to the telephone or transmitted as voice mail messages. The current investigation focuses on differences in the two types of recordings in terms of dynamic range and linearity of levels. Such information can be important for characterizing the distance of sound sources relative to the microphone and are important for understanding transformation of recorded speech and non-speech sounds.
