Two Inverse Problems In Linear Elasticity With Applications To Force-Sensing And Mechanical Characterization
Two inverse problems in elasticity are addressed with motivation from cellular biomechanics. The first application is computation of holding forces on a cell during its manipulation and the second application is estimation ...
In Situ Transmission Elecron Microscope Triboprobe For Tribological Studies Of Materials At Nanoscale
In most of the tribological experiments studying friction and wear behaviour, the contact interface is hidden. The present work attempts to overcome this hidden-interface problem by carrying out real-time tribological ...
Measurement And Analysis Of Friction Induced By A Cutting Operation Lubricated By Oil In Water Emulsion
The lubricants that are applied during metal cutting acts on the interface between the tool and the nascent surfaces generated by the cutting process. Dispersions of oil in water made using suitable emulsifier(s) are used ...
Fuel Filim Visualization And Measurement In The Inlet Manifold Of A Carbureted Spark-Ignition Engine
In order to meet future emission norms for small carbureted SI engines, such as those used on motorcycles in India, there is a need to study mixture preparation, specifically the two-phase flow exiting the carburetor and ...
A Continuous Optimization Approach To Protein Design With Structural And Functional Constraints
We have developed a novel computational approach to functional de novo protein design using gradient based continuous optimization techniques. Motivated by many engineering applications in which a cost function is optimized ...
Tribology Of An Etched Near-Eutectic Aluminium-Silicon Alloy Sliding Against A Steel Counterface
Lightweight aluminium-silicon alloy is an attractive material for making engine cylinders in automobiles. It imparts good power to weight ratio to the engine. High silicon containing aluminium alloys are used in current ...
