    • Application of Chebyshev polynomials for the analysis of rotating Timoshenko beam 

      Bai, Jiang (Northern Illinois University, 1996)
      A numerical scheme based on Chebyshev Polynomials for the determination of the response of dynamic systems is presented. The approach is based on the expansion of the state vector and its coefficient matrix in terms of ...
    • Ball-bearing noise and vibration correlation to honing 

      Parejko, James A. (Northern Illinois University, 1999)
      SealMaster Bearings, a division of Emerson Power Transmission, has been a precision, industrial, mounted, ball bearing manufacturer for over fifty years. The marketplace has recently begun to request lower vibration and ...
    • A ChebyShev-based computational method for the dynamic analysis of robotic manipulators 

      Ahmed, Nadim (Northern Illinois University, 1998)
      The objective of this study is to develop and evaluate a procedure based on ChebyShev Polynomial expansion for the inverse dynamics of robotic manipulators. This approach was consisted of the following procedure and ...
    • Computation of contact points between wheel and rail surfaces 

      Pan, Chao (Mechanical engineer) (Northern Illinois University, 2015)
      Wheel and rail contact point analysis is a fundamental and critical problem in dynamic simulation of railroad vehicle. The objective of this study is to develop an efficient method to compute the contact points between ...
    • A computational model for switch surfaces 

      Mokhtarian, Ilia (Northern Illinois University, 2015)
      Computation of contact points between the wheel and rail is a fundamental problem in dynamic simulation of trains. For this purpose, an accurate model of a switch surface is needed. The objective of this study is to develop ...
    • Design optimization of a scroll compressor 

      Janamanchi, Niel S. (Northern Illinois University, 1994)
      A strong demand for higher efficiency compressors that meet the stringent requirements of small size, light weight and quiet operation has resulted in the development of the scroll compressor. A scroll compressor’s pressure ...
    • An eigenvalue analysis of Timoshenko beam undergoing coupled elastic-rigid body motion 

      Pan, Yixin (Northern Illinois University, 1995)
      Rotating beam is a common element of many mechanical systems such as propellers, helicopter rotors, and machines. In designing these mechanical systems, knowledge of the natural frequency of the rotating beam is crucial ...
