In order to study the effect of different bolts tightening sequences on the stress of bolts work-piece, the finite element simulation and stress test experiments are adopted. Three types of bolt work-piece: two, five, and frame type bolts work-pieces are studied under different tightening sequences. The stress values and distribution are obtained under different tightening sequences by simulation. It is observed that the stress distribution tendency of bolts work-piece has little change under di

A reference-beam multi-slit autocollimator built using off-the-shelf components with variable number of slits and increased sensitivity at frequencies from 1 to 100 Hz
Nikolaus Dragostinoff, David Alexander Müller, Nicole Plank
Optical levers for precision angle measurement have the advantage of exerting only a negligible force on the object being measured. Also, in autocollimating configuration, optical levers are insensitive to longitudinal movements of the target mirror. In this article, a reference-beam multi-slit autocollimator with variable number of slits, built from cost-effective off-the-shelf components, is presented. Further, an optimized algorithm for data processing is introduced, reducing computational ef

Geotubes are made by sewing geotextiles together and geotextiles are woven with warp and weft threads of different mechanical properties. This research explores effect of geotextile sewing method on dewatering performance of geotubes using a hanging bag test. Two types of hanging bags are made by different geotextile sewing methods: horizontal bag with the warp threads along its circular direction and vertical bag with the warp threads along its axial direction. The test results show that the de

Error correction and uncertainty measurement of short-open-load calibration standards on a new concept of software defined instrumentation for microwave network analysis
M. Nazrin, S. J. Hashim, F. Z. Rokhani, B. M. Ali, Z. Yusoff
Software-Defined Radio (SDR) has appeared as a sufficient framework for the development and testing of the measurement systems such as a signal generator, signal analyzer, and network analysis used in the network analyzer. However, most of researchers or scientists still rely on commercial analyzers were larger benchtop instruments, highly cost investment and minimum software intervention. In this paper, a new concepts measurement revolution called as Software Defined Instrumentation (SDI) on ne

Application of fractal analysis methods to images obtained by crystallization modified by an additive
Natalia Ampilova, Igor Soloviev, Jean-Georges Barth
The fractal and multifractal methods are now widely used for analysis and classification of digital images having complex structure. We present the results of the application of such methods to the images of crystallograms obtained by crystallization with additives. This technique was developed for studying images of blood crystals, and now finds increasing use in the analysis of medicines, checking food and soil quality. In this work we study images of crystallograms of various milk dilutions a

The reliability evaluation of vibration based (VB) tests in compactness evaluation of masonry bearing parts in sensitive case study as monuments and historic construction, is here proposed. The scientific aim is through a comparison between a lot of experimental data in situ relieved for different construction with different building age and level of conservation. In detail the investigation focuses on sonic device employed in direct and indirect way, whose use is very strategic in structural co

Masonry vaults strengthened with a GFRP reinforced mortar coating: evaluation of the resisting peak ground acceleration
Natalino Gattesco, Ingrid Boem
The reinforcement of existing masonry vaults against seismic actions is an extremely timing issue and it has already involved many researchers in experimental testing and numerical modelling. However, up to now, the results of the research have been expressed and compared in terms of load-displacement capacity curves. But the designers, in the practice, need to assess the resisting peak ground acceleration of the vault (PGA), so to compare it with the seismic demand. In the paper, a strategy to

A passive diffusion model of fluorescein derivatives in an in vitro human brain microvascular endothelial cell (HBMEC) monolayer
Jamelle M. Simmons, Yong Woo Lee, Luke Achenie
Eukaryotic cells have a protective plasma membrane, which restricts the free movement of molecules from the external environment to the internal environment. This study aims to computationally model the transport of fluorescein derivatives across the monolayer of human brain microvascular endothelial cells (HBMEC). The determination of plausible effective diffusion constants (Deff) will allow models to be built that could be useful beyond in vitro experimentation. Fluorescein-5-isothiocyanate (F

Aiming at the problem that the complex parts are difficult to process precisely, a flexible processing method, abrasive flow technology, is proposed. Based on the FLUENT software, a realizable k-ε model was adopted and a Z-tube was used as the research object for numerical analysis. Parameters such as turbulence intensity, turbulent kinetic energy, and flow field pressure under different inlet pressures were simulated and discussed. The simulation results show that with the increase of inlet pre

The maximum displacement in a soil nail bond system considering the pull-out, overburden load and grouting pressure effects has been evaluated. The Pull-out tests were carried out in five sites that located in Tehran, Iran. Moreover, additional pull-out test data from South Korea is considered. The displacement of the nailing system due to gravity and pressure grouting has been measured. Based on achieved data, four practical relationships between bound strength and pull-out displacements are de
