Understanding the biomechanics of the forearm motion is essential for many research areas to improve the quality of human life. In this study, a new kinematic forearm model is proposed for estimating the rotation axis and obtaining proper forearm orientation during the pro/supination motion. As an improvement, a moving rotation axis is included as a link inside the model, and the rotation of the radius segment around the moving rotation axis is investigated. The model is tested in different motion patterns ...
Development of a control strategy for road vehicles with semi-active suspensions using a full vehicle ride model
Erdoğan, Zeynep; Ünlüsoy, Yavuz Samim; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2009)
The main motivation of this study is the design of a control strategy for semi-active vehicle suspension systems to improve ride comfort for road vehicles. In order to achieve this objective, firstly the damping characteristics of Magnetorheological dampers will be reviewed. Then an appropriate semi-active control strategy manipulating the inputs of the dampers to create suitable damping forces will be designed. Linear Quadratic Regulator (LQR) control strategy is the primary focus area on semi-active contr...
Development of an optical system calibration and alignment methodology using Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensor
Adil, Fatime Zehra; Konukseven, Erhan İlhan; Balkan, Raif Tuna; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2013)
Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors are commonly used in optical alignment, ophthalmology, astronomy, adaptive optics and commercial optical testing. Wavefront error measurement yields Zernike polynomials which provide useful data for alignment correction calculations. In this thesis a practical alignment method of a helmet visor is proposed based on the wavefront error measurements. The optical system is modeled in Zemax software in order to collect the Zernike polynomial data necessary to relate the error me...
