How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Wind energy is one of the alternative energy sources that respond positively to both global warming and energy needs, due to the increasing population density and the adverse effects it has brought in recent years. In this study, modification on current design of wind turbines has been demonstrated in order to increase the energy yield obtained fro...
Stringent international regulations in terms of emissions necessitate more efficient transient calibration procedures for diesel engines which in turn implies utilization of dynamic models of the combustion process. In this paper, a novel input design framework in terms of multi-sweep chirp signals is developed and airpath input channels are excite...
Composite materials are becoming increasingly more valuable due to their high specific strength and stiffness. Currently, most components are operated for a number of service cycles and then replaced regardless of their actual condition. Embedded fiber Bragg gratings are under investigation for monitoring these components in real time and estimatin...
Glass ber reinforced composites (GFRC) are widely used in load bearing industrialapplications. Failure can occur in GFRC due to matrix cracking, ber breaking, crack coupling,delamination, or combined e ects of these failure mechanisms, and it is important to study thefailure mechanisms for qualitative inspection of the material during its operation...
Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) are optical fiber based sensor that are widely used for structural health monitoring. However, the strain and temperature components of the measurement are coupled. This paper discusses a method to decouple the two parameters using spectral subtraction.
A composite plate was manufactured using an in-house resin transfer molding with an FBG sensor embedded into the composite at the manufacturing step. To be able to convert the measured shift in the Bragg wavelength to strain, a strain gage was bonded onto the surface of the composite plate in such a way that both FBG and strain gage are vertically...
