QUANTITATIVE EVALUATION OF BUILDABILITY IN 3D CONCRETE PRINTING BASED ON SHEAR VANE TEST

Abstract While the slump test is widely used in conventional in situ concrete construction, no field test has yet been proposed for additive manufacturing of cementitious materials. In the extrusion-based 3D printing technology, one of the important material characteristics is buildability; when deposited fresh mortar is not stiff enough, the 3D printed object could collapse […]

RELIABILITY MODEL OF AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL WITH IMA ONBOARD DATA LINK SYSTEM

Aviation flight safety is largely ensured by the reliability and continuity of interactions between ground and airborne systems during data exchange in process of the flight. Modern avionics systems are built on a modular basis. The combination of technical and software components has led to the emergence of a new class of systems – integrated

GPU ACCELERATED MEMBRANE EVOLUTIONARY ARTIFICIAL POTENTIAL FIELD FOR MOBILE ROBOT PATH PLANNING

Abstract This work presents a graphics processing unit (GPU) accelerated membrane evolutionary artificial potential field (MemEAPF) algorithm implementation for mobile robot path planning. Three different implementations are compared to show the performance, effectiveness, and efficiency of the MemEAPF algorithm. Simulation results for the three different implementations of the MemEAPF algorithm, a sequential implementation on CPU,

A NEW ELECTROPLATING WASTEWATER TREATMENT PROCESS USING ELECTRIC LIME AND VACUUM FILTRATION

Abstract This study explores a new electroplating wastewater treatment process which could be cheaper and more efficient than the conventional approaches. The process consists of 3 steps: (1) electric lime is added to the electroplating wastewater to adjust the pH to around 9; (2) activated carbon is added to the turbid liquid; and (3) vacuum

STABILITY ANALYSIS OF PRECAST CONCRETE WALL PANELS AND ITS UTILITY

Abstract Unlike cast in situ construction, precast concrete construction is a type of construction in which the concrete elements used in the structure are not casted on the site but are made off site usually in a factory or casting yard and are cured and treated and then transported to the construction site where they

OPTIMAL DIMENSIONAL SYNTHESIS OF RHOMBUS PATH GENERATING ADJUSTABLE FOUR-BAR MECHANISM

Abstract Precise and continuous generation of rhombus path by adjustable four-bar mechanism is investigated and confirmed using Reconstructed Adjustable Parameter Curve (RAPC) technique. RAPC method is able to extract adjustable parameter value of intermediary path points along the path generation profile corresponding to uniformly incremented crank angle values. Harmonic Spacing (HS) algorithm is used to

COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF CONCENTRATING SOLAR BOILER USES WITH AND WITHOUT GRAPHENE COATING

Abstract This paper presents an enhanced thermal conductivity for composite wall of solar boiler by using the heat-transfer characteristic of a graphene coating. Utilizing the arrangement of reflective mirrors, the sun beams are made to focus on the reflective mirrors. The light beams which produce heat falls on these reflectors get reflected and consumed by

AUTOMATIC STOPWORDS IDENTIFICATION FROM VERY SMALL CORPORA

Abstract Natural Language Processing tools use language-specific linguistic resources, that might be unavailable for many languages. Since manually building them is complex, it would be desirable to learn these resources automatically from sample texts. In this paper we focus on stopwords, i.e., terms which are not relevant to understand the topic and content of a document.
