Multivalued adaptive neuro-fuzzy controller for robot vehicle - art. no. 1406
(Proceedings of the International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Knowledge Engineering (iske 2007), 2007-01-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Robotic vehicle navigation in unstructured and uncertain environments is still a challenge. This paper presents the implementation of a multivalued neurofuzzy controller for autonomous ground vehicle (AGVs) in indoor ...
Estimating outcomes in newborn infants using fuzzy logic
(Revista Paulista de Pediatria, 2014-06-01) [Artigo]
OBJECTIVE: To build a linguistic model using the properties of fuzzy logic to estimate the risk of death of neonates admitted to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. METHODS: Computational model using fuzzy logic. The input ...
Microstructural effects on fatigue crack growth behavior of a microalloyed steel
(Procedia Engineering, 2010-04-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Thermal transformations on microalloyed steels can produce multiphase microstructures with different amounts of ferrite, martensite, bainite and retained austenite. These different phases, with distinct morphologies, are ...
Behavior analysis of electromyographic activity of the masseter muscle in sleep bruxers
(Journal of Bodywork and Movement Therapies, 2010-07-01) [Artigo]
The effects of occlusal splint on the electric activity of masseter were studied in 15 women who presented sleep bruxism using surface electromyography. Sleep bruxism was defined by its clinical characteristics. The signal ...
A new device to measure isometric strength in upper limbs: comparison between dominant and non-dominant limbs
(Clinics, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Effect of the usual weight of a backpack on body sway during quiet standing
(Journal of Physical Therapy Science, 2012-12-01) [Artigo]
[Purpose] The purpose of this study was to verify the effect on body sway during quiet standing of the habitual weight carried by students in a backpack. [Subjects] Forty-six students between the ages of 8 and 14 years ...
Predicting academic success of engineering students in technical drawing from working memory
(Journal for Geometry and Graphics, 2012-11-27) [Artigo]
Tests on spatial aptitude, in particular Visualization, have been shown to be efficient predictors of the academic performance of Technical Drawing stu-dents. It has recently been found that Spatial Working Memory (a ...
Evaluation of the fretting fatigue behaviour of commercially pure titanium
(Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers Part L-Journal of Materials-design and Applications, 2007-07-01) [Artigo]
Fretting fatigue occurs when the contact surfaces of two components undergo small oscillatory movement while they are subjected to a clamping force. A cyclic external load gives rise to the early initiation of fatigue ...
Electrodeposition of copper on titanium wires: Taguchi experimental design approach
(Journal of Materials Processing Technology, 2009-02-01) [Artigo]
Electrodeposition of thin copper layer was carried out on titanium wires in acidic sulphate bath. The influence of titanium surface preparation, cathodic current density, copper sulphate and sulphuric acid concentrations, ...
An evaluation of shot peening, residual stress and stress relaxation on the fatigue life of AISI 4340 steel
(International Journal of Fatigue, 2002-08-01) [Artigo]
Shot peening is a method widely used to improve the fatigue strength of materials. through the creation of a compressive residual stress field (CRSF) in their surface layers. In the present research the gain in fatigue ...
