A macroscopic model for self-organized aggregation in swarm robotic systems
Soysal, Onur; Şahin, Erol (2006-10-01)
We study the self-organized aggregation of a swarm of robots in a closed arena. We assume that the perceptual range of the robots are smaller than the size of the arena and the robots do not have information on the size of the swarm or the arena. Using a probabilistic aggregation behavior model inspired from studies of social insects, we propose a macroscopic model for predicting the final distribution of aggregates in terms of the parameters of the aggregation behavior, the arena size and the sensing chara...

A Numerical forced convection heat transfer analysis of nanofluids considering performance criteria
Kirez, Oğuz; Güvenç Yazıcıoğlu, Almıla; Kakaç, Sadık; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
A nanofluid is a new heat transfer fluid produced by mixing a base fluid and solid nano sized particles. This fluid has great potential in heat transfer applications, because of its increased thermal conductivity and even increased Nusselt number due to higher thermal conductivity, Brownian motion of nanoparticles, and other various effects on heat transfer phenomenon. In this work, the first aim is to predict convective heat transfer of nanofluids. A numerical code is created and run to obtain results in a...

© 2015 American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics Inc, AIAA. All rights reserved.A framework for the design and optimization of a morphing wing is presented. It allows the user to simplify the design process of a morphing UAV wing with a simple and effective interface with the possibility to easily switch between flight phases and morphing concepts. It consists of two main solvers: a high-fidelity CFD module for detailed RANS simulation and a fast low-fidelity module that solves the aeroelastic prob...
