THERMAL VACUUM TEST CORRELATION OF A ZERO PROPELLANT LOAD CASE THERMAL CAPACITANCE PROPELLANT GAUGING ANALYTICAL MODEL (2016)This thesis describes the development and correlation of a thermal model that forms the foundation of a thermal capacitance spacecraft propellant load estimator. Specific details of creating the thermal model for the ...
Variable Recruitment in Bundles of Miniature Pneumatic Artificial Muscles and Space Qualified Pneumatic Artificial Muscles (2016)The natural compliance and force generation properties of pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) allow them to operate like human muscles in anthropomorphic robotic manipulators. Traditionally, manipulators use a single PAM ...
(2016)Soft robots are robots made mostly or completely of soft, deformable, or compliant materials. As humanoid robotic technology takes on a wider range of applications, it has become apparent that they could replace humans in ...
(2016)A systematic study was conducted to elucidate the effects of acoustic perturbations on laminar diffusion line-flames and the conditions required to cause acoustically-driven extinction. Flames were produced from the fuels ...
(2016)The development of accurate modeling techniques for nanoscale thermal transport is an active area of research. Modern day nanoscale devices have length scales of tens of nanometers and are prone to overheating, which reduces ...
