    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.

His clients include P&G, Nestle, Pepsico, Unilever, Kraft, Colgate, The Home Depot, Brown-Foreman, Novartis, J&J and more than 50 market leading companies. Manhattan-based, Rob has been an expert witness for important litigation involving:

    • Likelihood of Consumer Confusion
    • Secondary Meaning
    • Brand Valuation & Dilution
    • Package Graphic/Structural Design
    • Product Design

    Trademarks are everywhere. They're embodied in logos and symbols (Nike's Swoosh), color schemes (John Deere's green and yellow), numbers (501 jeans), slogans ("Eat Fresh"), and even shapes (Method's product packaging). They're memorable. They distinguish products and services of one provider from those of another, ensuring that customers do not confuse their source. In fact, avoiding consumer confusion is trademark law's primary goal.

    In the visual circus that has become the retail environment, the icon can be your most effective tool for communicating your brand s message and for connecting with your consumers.

    2/14/2013 · Design
    Several months ago, a well-respected Fortune 500 consumer products corporation asked its design leader to fire his entire staff and re-hire them under the payroll of one of its pre-press consultants. As a reward for completing this awkward transition, the design manager was, in turn, laid off.

    In the past few weeks I have heard marketing directors from three different large consumer packaged goods companies begin a strategic brand identity design discussion with the warning, "My brand needs significant enhancement, but don't to go too crazy.

    Today's world is cluttered with messages. In this enviromnent, Rob Wallace urges simplicity. Powerful brands cut through perceptional noise with a memorably iconic and minimalist approach to colors and symbols. Case studies amplify the principles he advocates, and a three-step process outlines specific criteria managers can use to build designs that are visually clean and engaging.

    I've spent the better part of 20 years on the package/brand identity design pulpit.With my colleagues in corporate and consultant design, I have tried to spread the gospel of package design's pre-eminent role in communicating the brand's core identity, its emotional essence, and its primary connection to consumers.

    Brand extensions are more than twice as likely to succeed as new brands. With mega-brands like Crest extending to more than 80 SKUs in the United States alone and over 300 products worldwide, today's brands are not just expanding-they are hyper-proliferating.

    12/9/2009 · Design
    A new set of design advocates is needed: individuals & organizations who aren't afraid to weigh the costs of design against marketplace results.

    4/5/2009 · Marketing
    The value of being the genuine original cannot be overstated. Behaviorists like Malcolm Gladwell and Barry Schwartz recognize that in a sea of newness, we consumers find comfort in brands that are consistent, honest and real. We immediately recognize their familiar identities

    8/30/2017 · Audio Forensics
    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.

    According to contemporary thinking, Imhotep was the first Architect to be known by name, in recorded history. He was the designer of the monumental step-pyramid building for the Egyptian pharaoh Djoser including perhaps, the first known use of stone columns to support a building structure. Fast forward approximately 4,680 years. Today Architecture has become so much more than a single building. Present-day Architecture is the art, science, and entrepreneurial business of designing and constructing individual spaces, buildings, neighborhoods, communities, and municipalities to add greater value to societies' future growth and viability.

    January 28, 2015, The Preservation Foundation of Palm Beach offered a public exhibit to highlight fifteen recent examples of "Contemporary Modern Architecture in Palm Beach". The time period of these works ranged from approximately 1954 through to 2015. Although some residences have as of yet been constructed, this sampling of designs represented the characteristics of the "International Style" of Architecture with typically "white" rectilinear forms, cantilevered construction, interior/exterior openness, steel, glass and concrete wall planes, horizontal linear elements, asymmetrical composition absent of ornamentation and flat roofs, which typify one of the predominant residential Architectural style choices by owners in Palm Beach. Current examples are interspersed throughout Palm Beach.
