Optimal design of protective clothing based on difference equation

Pan Hu, Heng Tang, Ling Zheng, Ci Jun Fang

The temperature distribution and thickness design of high temperature protective clothing are studied in this paper. Based on the data provided by China mathematical modeling competition in 2018. We establish the temperature distribution model and skin layer heat conduction and burn model. The interface continuous conditional difference method, differential iterative method, least squares method and the chasing method are used to solve the given temperature distribution on the protective clothin ...

Optimization of palm methyl ester and its effect on fatty acid compositions and cetane number

Sharath Satya, Aditya Kolakoti, Naga Raju B., Shyam Sundar R., Ranga Rao

This paper proposes the Taguchi based optimization technique for the production of biodiesel from palm oil. For this purpose, L9 orthogonal array was successfully used for better yield estimation by using Minitab-18 software. Different process variables like molar ratio, catalyst concentration, reaction time and reaction temperature were studied. A predicted yield of 92.06 % was achieved by regression analysis by maintaining the process variables of molar ratio 5:1 (methanol to oil), 4 grams of ... Continue reading

Simplified theoretical treatment of lateral structural properties under crowd excitation

Yun Dong, Yan An Gao, Ye Zhu, Peng Zhang

Walking crowd-induced lateral vibrations on slender structures have attracted considerable attention. The improper vibration of a structure adversely affects human comfort. To explore the effects of crowds on lateral structural properties, a pedestrian from a crowd is simulated by a walking bipedal robot. A simplified theory for structural vibration is proposed based on the assumptions of uniform distribution and synchronized walking of pedestrians. This theory can be used to describe the effect ...

Analytical solution for modal analysis of Euler-Bernoulli and Timoshenko beam with an arbitrary varying cross-section

Fatemeh Sohani, H. R. Eipakchi

In this article, the free vibrations of Euler-Bernoulli and Timoshenko beams with arbitrary varying cross-section are investigated analytically using the perturbation technique. The governing equations are linear differential equations with variable coefficients and the Wentzel, Kramers, Brillouin approximation is adopted for solving these eigenvalue equations and determining the natural frequencies and mode shapes. This method relates the solution of equations with the solving of some successiv ... Continue reading

Non-linear vibration analysis of oleo pneumatic landing gear at touchdown impact

S. Sivakumar, M. Syedhaleem

In this paper, nonlinear vibration analysis of a typical aircraft oleo pneumatic landing gear has been done. Mathematical model of the main landing gear is developed, and dynamic equations have been written incorporating the effect of lift force, friction force to study the landing gear behaviour at touchdown condition. The nonlinear effect of stiffness, damping coefficient properties are considered in the analysis. The displacement, velocity, acceleration values are obtained on different landin ...

Study on friction mechanism and performance of disc brakes for mining motor vehicle

Yanan Qin, Sen Zhang, Xiuping Wei

According to the convexity theory, the working principle of the disc brake of mining motor vehicle is analyzed. The dry friction force between brake disc and brake block is mainly composed of three mechanisms, such as meshing effect, adhesion effect and furrow effect. The Link NVH 3900 device is used to simulate the long downhill braking condition with bench test method, which can obtain friction performance with high credibility in different brake conditions. The average friction coefficient an ... Continue reading
