Design of a magnetically tuned vibration absorber

Nakkaş, Halit Erdem
In this thesis, a TVA is designed, manufactured and validated experimentally. The TVA uses eddy current effect as the damping mechanism with adjustable damping through changing distance between magnets and the conductors. In order to tune the damping level of the absorber to the desired range, magnetic analyzes are conducted and selection of conductor and magnets are made accordingly. Physical design of the TVA consists of a mass element, a spring element and a damping element. Compression helical spring is used as a spring element. A design procedure is developed and demonstrated for the spring that will satisfy the design criteria of the TVA. A procedure to estimate the fatigue life the spring element was also developed and demonstrated. Structural design of the TVA is done such that the natural frequency of the structural assembly should larger compared to tuning frequency of the vibration absorber. Modal analyses are conducted to ensure that. Finally, absorber parameters are extracted through vibration experiments validating the final design.


Impregnation molding of particle-filled preceramic polymers: Process modeling
Erdal Erdoğmuş, Merve; Danforth, SC (1999-08-01)
A process model is presented for the analysis and simulation of impregnation molding of particle-filled, continuous-fiber ceramic composites. A multidimensional, transient particle filtration formulation is coupled with isothermal, anisotropic Darcy flow to predict filler-concentration profiles during molding. The particle filtration is insensitive to the injection flow rate; however, in irregularly shaped molds, the geometry of the mold greatly influences the local velocities, which results in local variat...
Design of a high precision hybrid AM machine
Yılmaz, Yunus Emre; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2019)
Precision requirements in fused deposition modelling (FDM) processes have been increasing in recent years, especially after recognizing the potential of FDM process to produce complex and functional components. In order to increase precision of FDM process, 6-axis hybrid manufacturing system, which can carry out additive- and subtractive manufacturing processes in one manufacturing system platform, is designed. During design, kinematic analysis of the machine is done, axial- and angular errors are estimated...
Design of economical noise array experiments for a partially controlled simulation environment
Köksal, Gülser (1998-12-01)
Design of economical experiments for estimation of a response function's moments in a partially controlled laboratory environment is studied. The noise factors affecting the response are assumed to be statistically independent and normally distributed. It is also assumed that if a factor is set to a specific level in the experimentation, its actual value is also a normally distributed random variable with a smaller variance. Experimental design levels of the factors are found by matching first few moments o...
Verification of Modular Diagnosability With Local Specifications for Discrete-Event Systems
Schmidt, Klaus Verner (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-09-01)
In this paper, we study the diagnosability verification for modular discrete-event systems (DESs), i.e., DESs that are composed of multiple components. We focus on a particular modular architecture, where each fault in the system must be uniquely identified by the modular component where it occurs and solely based on event observations of that component. Hence, all diagnostic computations for faults to be detected in this architecture can be performed locally on the respective modular component, and the obt...
Fabrication of microfluidic devices for dielectrophoretic and acoustophoretic applications using high precision machining
Soheila, Zenaili; Çetin, Barbaros; Özer, Mehmet Bülent; Süleyman, Büyükkoçak (2014-07-03)
In this study, the fabrication of microfluidic devices for dielectrophoretic and acoustophoretic based applications with high-precision CNC machining has been presented. For both devices, molds out of stainless steel have been fabricated, and polymer molding is implemented. For dielectrophoretic device, the metal electrodes have been fabricated using high-precision machining and embedded into the device during the molding process. For acoustophoretic device, piezoelectric slides have been embedded into the ...
