Design of Compliant Mechanisms for Engineering Support – A Topology Optimisation Approach

Because of versatility, stability and unitized building, compliant mechanisms are the subject of active study. It is a single elastic continuum used without any connections and joints to mechanically transmit force and movement by elastic deformation. In order to design a compliant amplifier, the authors proposed a topology optimization method and steps for carrying out

Many cold storage applications today need different kinds of cooling loads to be connected to the same cooling system. This is achieved by feeding refrigerants into multi-evaporators. To satisfy this requirement, a bi-evaporator single compression system is typically used with individual expansion valves or with multiple expansion valve arrangements. With a growing appetite for energy

Objective: The scale and features of the medical database are also increasingly growing with the continued production of medical devices and advances in data collection. The majority of current cancer diagnosis, however, still depends on the examination and testing of doctors with samples of cell tissue who do not appear to use the medical database

Parametric Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) is proposed as a new reliability technique to improve the design of a new compressor system subject to repeated pressure loading, as a way to detect and minimize fatigue failure due to design faults in mechanical systems. The approach includes: (1) a parametric ALT schedule focused on the BX lifetime

Some marine activities in the Barents Sea are typically year-round; others are dependent on weather-restricted windows. Specific weather conditions marked by unpredictable Polar Low situations during the fall, winter and spring seasons, as well as cold temperatures that also cause sea spray freezing and the potential for drifting ice in some areas of the sea,

Two out of every three consumers prefer eco-friendly brands of travel items from diet products and are also keen to pay more for the service, based on the survey by the Boston consulting company. The front interface with the user of every finished product is: the packaging design and materials must facilitate the shared objective

Due to its simple handling, outstanding appearance, lack of toxicity and biocompatibility, poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is commonly used in dental technology. As an ideal dental base, however, this material is still constrained by a few drawbacks, such as poor strength and radiopacity. Through using silica-based fillers, attempts to boost the mechanical and radiopacity characteristics of

Breast cancer is a prevalent disease among women and the death rate continues to grow. As there is no cure in the late stage, it is important to detect early breast cancer. The promising candidate for its specificity and lack of ionizing radiation is ultra wide-band (UWB). This chapter presents the performance analysis for breast
