Analysis Of Multiply-Connected Acoustic Filters with Application To Design Of Combination Mufflers And Underwater Noise Control Linings
This thesis endeavors towards developing various concepts employed in analysis and design of acoustic ﬁlters for varied applications ranging from combination mufflers for automobiles to complex networks of gas carrying ...
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 ...
Force Measurements On Rigid And Flexible Oscillating Foils
In the present work, we experimentally study thrust generation from sinusoidally pitched rigid and flexible foils immersed in a uniform flow. The flexible foils are made by attaching a flexible flap of known flexural ...
