  • History of the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Maryland, College Park: 1894 to 2018 

    Anand, Davinder K. (2018-10-15)
    Research and education activities of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park from 1894 to 2018. Significant growth in the student body, research depth and breadth, and the size and quality of ...

    Zhang, Xiang; Keramati, Hadi; Arie, Martinus; Singer, Farah; Tiwari, Ratnesh; Shooshtari, Amir; Ohadi, Michael (Global Digital Central, 2018)
    Heat exchangers are key components of most power conversion systems, a few industrial sectors can particularly benefit from high temperature heat exchangers. Examples include conventional aerospace applications, advanced ...
  • Creative Exploration Using Topic Based Bisociative Networks 

    Ahmed, Faez; Fuge, Mark (Cambridge University Press, 2018-02-05)
    Bisociative knowledge discovery is an approach that combines elements from two or more `incompatible' domains to generate creative solutions and insight. Inspired by Koestler's notion of bisociation, in this paper we propose ...
  • Multipass Target Search in Natural Environments 

    Kuhlman, Michael J.; Otte, Michael W.; Sofge, Donald; Gupta, Satyandra K. (MDPI, 2017-11-02)
    Consider a disaster scenario where search and rescue workers must search difficult to access buildings during an earthquake or flood. Often, finding survivors a few hours sooner results in a dramatic increase in saved ...
  • Targeted Feature Recognition Using Mechanical Spatial Filtering with a Low-Cost Compliant Strain Sensor 

    Barnett, Eli M.; Lofton, Julian J.; Yu, Miao; Bruck, Hugh A.; Smela, Elisabeth (Nature Publishing Group, 2017-07-11)
    A tactile sensing architecture is presented for detection of surface features that have a particular target size, and the concept is demonstrated with a braille pattern. The approach is akin to an inverse of mechanical ...
