STABILITY OF CONTROL FORCES IN REDUNDANT MULTIBODY SYSTEMS

1996-01-03
IDER, SK
In this paper inverse dynamics of redundant multibody systems using a minimum number of control forces is formulated. It is shown that the control forces and the task accelerations may become noncausal at certain configurations, yielding the dynamical equation set of the system to be singular. For a given set of tasks, each different set of actuators leads to a different system motion and also to different singular configurations. To avoid the singularities in the numerical solution, the dynamical equations are modified in the neighborhoods of the singular configurations by utilizing higher order derivative information. The modification is made easier by transforming the equations of motion to the null space of the control force direction matrix. The conditions for the existence of solution are also discussed. A redundant planar manipulator is analyzed to illustrate the methods proposed.

Time series on riemannian manifolds
Ergezer, Hamza; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2017)
In this thesis, feature covariance matrices are utilized to solve several problems related to time series. In the first part of the thesis, a novel representation is proposed to represent the time series using feature covariance matrices. By this representation, time series are carried onto Riemannian manifold space. The proposed representation is firstly applied to trajectories which are essentially 2D time series. Anomaly detection and activity perception problems in crowded visual scenes are studied by usi...
Numerical methods for multiphysics flow problems
Belenli Akbaş, Mine; Kaya Merdan, Songül; Rebholz, Leo G.; Department of Mathematics (2016)
In this dissertation, efficient and reliable numerical algorithms for approximating solutions of multiphysics flow problems are investigated by using numerical methods. The interaction of multiple physical processes makes the systems complex, and two fundamental difficulties arise when attempting to obtain numerical solutions of these problems: the need for algorithms that reduce the problems into smaller pieces in a stable and accurate way and for large (sometimes intractable) amount of computational resou...
Stability criteria for linear Hamiltonian systems under impulsive perturbations
Kayar, Z.; Zafer, Ağacık (2014-03-01)
Stability criteria are given for planar linear periodic Hamiltonian systems with impulse effect by making use of a Lyapunov type inequality. A disconjugacy criterion is also established. The results improve the related ones in the literature for such systems.
Theory of impurity induced lattice distortions in the normal phase of charge density wave systems
Turgut, Sadi (1994-05-01)
A phenomenological Ginzburg-Laundau theory is applied to the normal phase of one-dimensional charge-density-wave systems with a finite concentration of impurities. It is found that the interaction between the impurities and the highly polarizable electron gas leads to a strong and oscillatory impurityimpurity interaction, which in turn leads to ordered impurity arrangements and to sizeable periodic lattice distortions. The effect is very strongly dependent on the charge of the impurities, their concentratio...
