Chaos control of a nonlinear oscillator with shape memory alloy using an optimal linear control: Part I: Ideal energy source
(Nonlinear Dynamics, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
In this paper, an optimal linear control is applied to control a chaotic oscillator with shape memory alloy (SMA). Asymptotic stability of the closed-loop nonlinear system is guaranteed by means of a Lyapunov function, ...
Refrigerator COP with thermal storage
(Applied Thermal Engineering, 2009-08-01) [Artigo]
Due to the extreme necessity to diversify renewable energy sources, the search for energy recycling methods through the utilization of thermal losses from equipment has become fundamental. Thus, these losses can be used ...
Effect of abutment's height and framework alloy on the load distribution of mandibular cantilevered implant-supported prosthesis
(Clinical Oral Implants Research, 2009-02-01) [Artigo]
In cantilevered implant-supported complete prosthesis, the abutments' different heights represent different lever arms to which the abutments are subjected resulting in deformation of the components, which in turn transmit ...
Chaos control of a nonlinear oscillator with shape memory alloy using an optimal linear control: Part II: Nonideal energy source
(Nonlinear Dynamics, 2009-05-01) [Artigo]
In Part II of this two-part work, we apply an optimal linear control technique to suppress chaotic behavior in a SMA oscillator, driven by a DC motor with limited power supply (Nonideal sources). Nonideal sources of ...
