    Experience on the use of MOSTAB-HFW computer code for horizontal-axis wind turbines

    Three topics are covered dealing with the frequencies of a rotating beam, the use of the fundamental mode of a uniform cantilever beam, and the analysis of resonance dwell. Immensely high peak loads were generated by the code for resonance dwell indicating further need for including structural damping and for transient analysis capability. The effect of structural damping, newly incorporated in the code, is described

Copyright @ 2010 Elsevier B.V.Nonparametric quantile regression with multivariate covariates is a difficult estimation problem due to the “curse of dimensionality”. To reduce the dimensionality while still retaining the flexibility of a nonparametric model, we propose modeling the conditional quantile by a single-index function View the MathML sourceg0(xTγ0), where a univariate link function g0(⋅)g0(⋅) is applied to a linear combination of covariates View the MathML sourcexTγ0, often called the single-index. We introduce a practical algorithm where the unknown link function g0(⋅)g0(⋅) is estimated by local linear quantile regression and the parametric index is estimated through linear quantile regression. Large sample properties of estimators are studied, which facilitate further inference. Both the modeling and estimation approaches are demonstrated by simulation studies and real data applications

    Dynamic instability of ducts conveying fluid

    A finite element analysis was used to study dynamic instability in ducts conveying high speed fluids. Ducts examined include cantilevered curved, flexibly supported, arbitrarily shaped, and composite duct systems. Partial differential equations were used to study the duct systems

    Dibaryons with two heavy quarks

    Full text link
    The relativistic six-quark equations are constructed in the framework of the dispersion relation technique. The relativistic six-quark amplitudes of dibaryons including the light uu, dd and heavy cc, bb quarks are calculated. The approximate solutions of these equations using the method based on the extraction of leading singularities of the heavy hexaquark amplitudes are obtained. The poles of these amplitudes determine the masses of charmed and bottom dibaryons with the isospins I=0, 1, 2 and the spin-parities JP=0+J^P=0^+, 1+1^+, 2+2^+.Comment: 10 pages, types corrected. arXiv admin note: substantial text overlap with arXiv:1105.081

    Value distribution of the hyperbolic Gauss maps for flat fronts in hyperbolic three-space

    Full text link
    We give an effective estimate for the totally ramified value number of the hyperbolic Gauss maps of complete flat fronts in the hyperbolic three-space. As a corollary, we give the upper bound of the number of exceptional values of them for some topological cases. Moreover, we obtain some new examples for this class.Comment: 14 pages, to appear in Houston Journal of Mathematic

    Port Decoupling for Small Arrays by Means of an Eigenmode Feed Network

    Get PDF
    An alternative approach to port decoupling and matching of arrays with tightly coupled elements is proposed. The method is based on the inherent decoupling effect obtained by feeding the orthogonal eigenmodes of the array. For this purpose, a modal feed network is connected to the array. The decoupled external ports of the feed network may then be matched independently by using conventional matching circuits. Such a system may be used in digital beam forming applications with good signal-to-noise performance. The theory is applicable to arrays with an arbitrary number of elements, but implementation is only practical for smaller arrays. The principle is illustrated by means of two examples
