Driver fatigue can be manifested by various highly dangerous direct and indirect symptoms, for example, inattention or lack of concentration. The aim of the study was to compare the behavior of young drivers, older drivers and professional drivers, particularly in situations where they feel fatigued. In the online questionnaire, drivers answered va...

The aim of the article is to show the principle of adjusting the blades movement relative to the forward mower movement. For this Analysis was used software MSC.Adams, which was connected to MATLAB for better data post processing. Finally, the blade's paths were mapped to figure, where we found the optimal speed of blades to mower's movement (with...

The objective of this paper is to describe the procedure of correct determination of the optimum preload of tapered roller bearings in terms of their fatigue life, using the procedure laid down in ISO 281, and by analysis of contact stress state (analytically and by the FEM) with application of the Lundberg-Palmgren theory. The procedures will be a...

The study is concerned with the basic conditions to create a thermographic atlas of the human body. The main goal of research had been measurement and comparison in temperature distribution of healthy human bodies which were obtained by infrared thermography for one year. It was used Infrared Imager with detector type 320x240 Focal Plane Array. For...

This work proposes a modified procedure, based on analytical integrations, to analyse poroelastic models discretized by time-domain Meshless Local Petrov-Galerkin formulations. In this context, Taylor series expansions of the incognita fields are considered, and the related integrals of the meshless formulations are solved analytically, rendering a...

This paper deals with accurate geometric models of rolling bearing components in the CAD system. This model is then employed to create a static structural analysis used to determine the size of stress between the components of a rolling bearing. Following the stress analysis, we specify the maximum load of a rolling bearing with regards to durabili...
