Effect of layer thickness on the rolling-sliding wear behavior of low-temperature plasma-carburized austenitic stainless steel.
(Springer Verlang, 2002-07-01)
Dry rolling-sliding wear tests have been carried out in the present work to investigate the tribological behavior of the novel surface engineered layers produced on AISI 316 austenitic stainless steel by the low-temperature, ...
Computation of controllability regions for unstable aircraft dynamics.
(American Institute Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2004-01-01)
An active control approach to air vehicle design can significantly expand the flight envelope and improve vehicle performance characteristics. In some cases it can be attained by implementing the aerodynamically ...
Design of flexible manpower line walk cycles for a fixed number of operators.
(Taylor & Francis, 2005-01-01)
Flexible manpower lines (FMLs) are a form of flow process line in which operators are allocated 'walk cycles', i.e. a repetitive sequence in which to load and unload machine tools. The effective design of such lines is ...
A distributed e-commerce system for virtual product development teams.
(Professional Engineering Publishing, 2002-01-01)
This paper presents a distributed information system that facilitates virtual multidisciplinary product development activities. A growing problem today for many companies is that of facing up to increasing global competition, ...

Efficient energy management of a large-scale water supply system
(Taylor & Francis, 2006-09-01)
Efficient energy management is important for water companies in order to meet economic and environmental targets. For many water supply systems, increased savings can only be accomplished by taking into account the non-linear ...
Dynamic modeling of pressure reducing valves
(American Society of Civil Engineers, 2003-01-01)
Models are currently available for representing the dynamical behavior of most water network components. Such models are relatively simple, accurate and can be easily solved. However, there is no generally accepted dynamic ...
