Development Of A New Finite-Volume Lattice Boltzmann Formulation And Studies On Benchmark Flows
This thesis is concerned with the new formulation of a finite-volume lattice Boltzmann equation method and its implementation on unstructured meshes. The finite-volume discretization with a cell-centered tessellation is ...
Active Vibration Control Synthesis Using Viscoelastic Damping Phenomena
In this thesis, a new method is followed to design an active control system which imparts viscoelastic phenomenological damping in an elastic structure. Properties of a hypothetical viscoelastic system are used to design ...
Structural Health Monitoring Of Composite Helicopter Rotor Blades
(Indian Institute of Science, 2007-04-18)
Helicopter rotor system operates in a highly dynamic and unsteady aerodynamic environment leading to severe vibratory loads on the rotor system. Repeated exposure to these severe loading conditions can induce damage in the ...
Optimal Trajectory Planning for Fixed-Wing Miniature Air Vehicles
Applications such as urban surveillance, search and rescue, agricultural applications, military applications, etc., require miniature air vehicles (MAVs) to fly for a long time. But they have restricted flight duration due ...
Novel Finite Element Formulations For Dynamics Of Acoustic Fluids
Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) as the name suggests, is the study of dynamic interaction of both fluid and structure motions. Fluid-structure interaction exists in almost all engineering and science fields. Moreover, ...
A Study On Boundary Layer Transition Induced By Large Freestream Disturbances
The initial slow viscous growth of the Tollmein-Schlichting wave in a canonical boundary layer transition is absent in bypass and wake-induced transitions. Although there have been a great deal of studies pertaining to ...
