This invention is related to an adjustable dashpot (1) whose damping effect can be controlled, whose damping range does not change by means of its impermeability feature, which can be adapted to different joint geometries, comprising at least a control element (3) which can be mounted onto the body (2) and which can change the viscosity of the material whose viscosity can be changed depending on time, at least a housing (4) in which a material whose viscosity can be changed is housed, at least a pressure means (5) which applies a preferred amount of pressure onto the housing (4) and at least a rotating means (6) which can rotate around a central axis.


An SOI-MEMS tuning fork gyroscope with linearly coupled drive mechanism
Azgın, Kıvanç; Akın, Tayfun (2007-01-25)
This paper presents a new tuning fork gyroscope structure with a highly linear coupling mechanism that keeps the phases of the drive mode oscillating masses exactly opposite with the help of a symmetrically anchored ring-shaped spring. This structure eliminates the risk of drive mode instability due to any lower frequency structural modes and provides very linear drive mode oscillations together with very low g-sensitivity. The gyroscope is fabricated with the SOI-MUMPS process of MEMSCAP. The fabricated gy...
Optimal Control for the MHD Fow and Heat Transfer with Variable Viscosity in a Square Duct
Evcin, Cansu; Uğur, Ömür; Tezer, Münevver (null; 2018-06-08)
The direct and optimal control solution of the laminar, fully developed, steady MHD flow of an incompressible, electrically conducting fluid in a duct is considered together with the heat transfer. The flow is driven by a constant pressure gradient and an external uniform magnetic field. The fluid viscosity is either temperature dependent, varying exponentially, or it depends on the flow in the case of power law fluid; and the viscous and Joule dissipations are taken into consideration. The coupled nonline...

In the present study, the effect of initial winding angle, and the starting edge of the winding operation on the variation of the thickness, stiffness coefficients and undamped free vibration characteristics of filament wound composite shells of revolution are investigated. Filaments are assumed to be placed along the geodesic fiber path on the surface of the shell of revolution resulting in the variation of the stiffness coefficients and thickness along the axis of the composite shell of revolution with ge...
External Search Coil as a Means of Measuring Rotor Speed of an Induction Motor
Özlü Ertan, Hatice Gülçin; Keysan, Ozan (2009-07-03)
The study in this paper investigates whether the air gap harmonics can be identified by using an external search coil placed on the frame of an induction motor. For this purpose the study focuses on the prediction of rotor speed of an induction motor from external search coil emf, using spectral analysis techniques. In the first stage of the study the type of search coil which maximizes the induced emf is sought, also the position of the coil on the induced emf is investigated. Several motors are tested wit...
A remark on the state-space concept applied to bending, buckling and free vibration of composite laminates
Khdeir, AA (1996-06-03)
The present study shows that the state-space concept used to generate exact solutions for various boundary conditions for bending, buckling and free vibration of composite laminates, can be modified easily and exactly and has no drawback when the laminate thickness is reduced. Numerical results for central deflections, axial stresses, transverse shear stresses, critical buckling loads and natural frequencies of cross-ply laminated plates are obtained using the classical, first- and third-order theories for ...
