  1. 1. Structural Control and Identification of Civil Engineering Structures

    Author : Tarek Edrees; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggproduktion; Construction Engineering and Management; Structural Engineering; Konstruktionsteknik;

    Abstract : In general, the main purpose of a structural control system is to apply powerful control techniques that improve the behaviour of civil structures under various kinds of dynamic loading. The first part of this thesis presents novel applications of posicast and input shaping control schemes that have never previously been applied in the field of structural control. READ MORE

  2. 2. Resistivity and Surface Wave Seismic Surveys in Geotechnical Site Investigations

    Author : Roger Wisén; Teknisk geologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; teknisk geografi; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; resistivity method; surface wave seismic method; inverse modelling; site investigation; geophysics;

    Abstract : The adaptation of geophysical methods for civil engineering purposes represents an important contribution to the development of geotechnical site investigation methodology. The term geotechnical site investigation here refers to all investigations performed prior to or during construction; i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Subspace Fitting Concepts in Sensor Array Processing

    Author : Mats Viberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Subspace fitting; Sensor array processing;

    Abstract : The area of sensor array processing has recently received considerable attention in the litterature. Much interest stems from the potential of applying advanced concepts from signal processing to a variety of real-world problems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adaptation and Learning for Manipulators and Machining

    Author : Olof Sörnmo; Institutionen för reglerteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis presents methods for improving the accuracy and efficiency of tasks performed using different kinds of industrial manipulators, with a focus on the application of machining. Industrial robots offer a flexible and cost-efficient alternative to machine tools for machining, but cannot achieve as high accuracy out of the box. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the Application of Surface Wave Surveys for Seismic Site Response Evaluation

    Author : Edwin Obando; Teknisk geologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Surface wave; MASW; seismic site response; ground motion; seismic transfer functions; shear wave velocity; site amplification; walk-away; near-field effect; dispersion curve.;

    Abstract : In sites where earthquakes occur, the use of surface wave methods represents a convenient and effective procedure for soil characterization. In particular, Multichannel Analysis of Surface Wave (MASW) has become a popular tool in many seismic micro-zoning projects. READ MORE
