    Study on Proper Arrangement of Damping Material for a Partial Structure with Coupling Loss Factor as an Objective Function

    P(čĢ–æ–‡)A structural optimization method of subsystems to realize desired SEA parameters was proposed by the authors in the past studies. This method is based on a combination of SEA and FEM calculation, calculating repeatedly until satisfying the value of objective functions under arbitrary constraints. As a result of applying the proposed method to a simple structure consisting of two flat plates connected in an L shaped configuration, the design variable is taken as the thickness of the FEM element, a subsystem structure with the desired value of the CLF or power flow between subsystems for the one frequency band or multi frequency bands were constructed. However, it is difficult to apply the optimal results to real machine structure because of setting the thickness of the FEM element as the design variable. In this paper, the method is also validated through numerical analyses, using a finite element method, of a multiple plates partially composed of L shaped, the subsystem is grouped into a plural elements for the extracted L shaped part, and the each grouped element is set as a design variable, which should take a discrete value, the total mass is taken as a constraint function in order to minimize CLF23 at one frequency band. As a result of optimization, the sound pressure level was reduced by minimizing the value of CLF23 in the target frequency band.departmental bulletin pape

    Improvement of Navigation Optimization Technologies in ships

    Various endeavors for environmental protection are continuing in many fields of industry. The author has approached this problem by developing new technologies for minimizing fuel oil consumption to reduce exhaust gases over the navigation routes in marine transportation. In the preceeding studies, the relationship between speed drop caused by waves and wave resistance was made clear quantitatively in the case that the work of thrust to navigate straight over a definite distance is the same between calm sea and wave conditions. Moreover the amount of fuel oil consumption was analyzed to distribute the main engine outputs optimally on the basis of this relationship. In this paper, the above relationship was formulated more strictly in the case that ships navigate under wave conditions with the same main engine output as under calm sea conditions to analyze fuel oil consumption , and the decision equations for optimal steering and distribution of main engine outputs are modified. Finally, the effectiveness of the results of this study is evaluated in comparison with preceeding studies through several cases of numerical simulation.departmental bulletin pape

    Dynamism of inter-organizational cooperation in regional universities--Modeling industry-academia collaboration in northern Nagasaki City

    Get PDF
    P(čĢ–æ–‡)The most important factor in inter-organizational collaboration between companies and local universities is the "boundary spanning personnel" that serves as a "joint" between the organizations. In this study, based on an example of regional revitalization in collaboration with the Chamber of Commerce, businesses, high schools, and others in the northern Nagasaki City, Our University is one of the missions of regional universities based on regional inter-organizational cooperation.  One of the greatest missions of regional universities is to contribute to regional management strategies that regional universities are trusted to take on as “knowledge” and influence the cooperation between regional organizations. It is to foster and supply "human resources" who are in charge of the environment.  Spinning with the community by returning value to the community is the dynamism of inter-organizational collaboration at local universities.departmental bulletin pape

    A Moral Education Lesson to Enhance Self-Affirmative Consciousness in Japan and Taiwan

    Get PDF
    This paper addresses clinical research on moral education lessons to enhance the self-affirmative consciousness of students in Japan and Taiwan. We conducted four lessons for fifth and sixth graders under the same conditions. The lesson was about the natural environment and was organized as a cooperative learning experience. The Association Method was employed as an assessment.  Prompted by the image of , response words such as “water,” “air,” and “environment” appeared in four classes after the lesson. Through the 60-minute lesson, more than half of the response words changed. This indicates that the children concentrated deeply on the lesson, and that it made an impression on them.  The results from the Japanese A and B and Taiwanese C and D schools were diverse. We compared the response words before andafter the lesson, using the Association Method by cue word , which shows self-affirmative consciousness. In class A, words that recognize the importance of nature appeared even in self-consciousness, and in class B, positive words increased and negative words decreased significantly (p < .05). In class C, consciousness of “oneself” and “family” increased, and in class D, “life” and “friend” increased. We interpreted these differences as a result of the children’s reflections on their own inner character and the historical background they have learned and not learned.departmental bulletin pape

    A Quantitative Study of Sentencing Standards for the Term of Imprisonment to be Imposed for Sexual Offenses

    Get PDF
    P(čĢ–æ–‡)This article presents a quantitative sentencing standard for sexual offenses using statistical analyses of judicial precedents obtained from database. The analyses found the following. (1) The basic position on the sentencing standards for sexual offences is determined by the number of victims and the presence or absence and degree of injury related to the most serious case. (2) The victim's failure and drinking influence the range of the sentencing as modifying factors to the basic position determined in (1) above. And, (3) settlement out of court, likelihood of recidivism, youth, etc., exert an influence as modifying factors to the range of sentencing determined in (1) and (2) above to finally determine the sentencing. Japanese sentencing standards for sexual offences have revealed a tendency to emphasize results. In addition, the present study found that sexual offences against spouses, partners, and mentally-handicapped persons tended to receive lighter sentences, while sexual abuse by parents and teachers tended to receive heavier sentences. The study also reveals that sentencing for sexual offences has become moderately heavier in Japan over the 15-year period from 2002 to 2016.departmental bulletin pape

    The Chinese Community of Nagasaki seen through “The Nagasaki Times” during 1868-1869

    Get PDF
    During the Edo period, Europeans lived on Dejima and Chinese were segregated to a facility called “Tojin Yashiki.” According to the descriptions of European visitors to Nagasaki in the 1860s, it is certain that the visitors noticed the existence of Chinese who were quickly expanding their power in the national trade. Therefore, I analyzed English-language newspaper “The Nagasaki Times” to determine the opinions of foreigners in the foreign settlements regarding Chinese residents and arranged the content of descriptions into categories of “economy”, “politics” and “culture and customs” of Chinese.departmental bulletin pape

    War and Peace Described in Textbooks for Moral Education in The People's Republic of China--Integration through Moral Textbooks

    Get PDF
    Moral education textbooks of “Morality and Life” and “Morality and Society” in the PRC combine history, geography and politics with morality in a world view. Morality is not integrated as a separate world view within personality, as it is in Japan, but it is overwhelmingly organized outside of children themselves. We analyzed 10 kinds of moral education textbooks used in the PRC, published from 2002 to 2013. In Chinese moral textbooks, the history of the Opium War and the defeat of the Japanese military are organized in order to legitimize the Chinese Communist party's integration and operation within China. Peace in these textbooks is not only viewed as the opposite of War, but the concept richly includes a view of the Chinese people’s liberation, global unity of economy with other countries, development of science and technology in the PRC, along with world politics from a Chinese perspective.departmental bulletin pape
