The studies on the conical and spherical shell are also reviewed. This review aticles contain 236 referencees.
Human Postural Response to Linear Perturbation
Kim, Se-Young ; Park, Su-Kyung ;
Transactions of the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers A, volume 33, issue 1, 2009, Pages 27~33
DOI : 10.3795/KSME-A.2009.33.1.27
Human postural responses appeared to have stereotyped modality, such as ankle mode, knee mode and hip mode in response to various perturbations. We examined whether human postural control gain of full-state feedback could be decoupled along with the eigenvector. To verify the model, postural responses subjected to fast backward perturbation were used. Upright posture was modeled as 3-segment inverted pendulum incorporated with feedback control, and joint torques were calculated using inverse dynamics. Postural modalities such as ankle, knee and hip mode were obtained from eigenvectors of biomechanical model. As oppose to the full-state feedback control, independent eigenvector control assumes that modal control input is determined by the linear combination of corresponding modality. We used optimization method to obtain and compare the feedback gains for both independent eigenvector control and full-state feedback control. As a result, we found that simulation result of eigenvector feedback was not competitive in comparison with that of full-state feedback control. This implies that the CNS would make use of full-state body information to generate compensative joint torques.

DOI : 10.3795/KSME-A.2009.33.1.34
In this paper, a novel MR brake with permanent magnet is developed. This system consists of rotary disk, permanent magnet, spring and MR fluid. Permanent magnets are attached to the rotary disk and moves in the direction of radius. The magnets are linked to rotor axis by spring. As rotation speed increases, the magnets move outward from the center of the system by centrifugal force in the MR fluid. A proper design of stator or case makes the system have unique torque characteristics. The research is performed like following procedures. First, the electromagnetic characteristic of the system is analyzed using Maxwell. Next, torque is calculated using the results of the electromagnetic analysis. Finally, the performance of various types of the brake systems are investigated and compared with each other.

Nam, Yoon-Su ; Yoon, Tai-Jun ; Yoo, Neung-Soo ;
Transactions of the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers A, volume 33, issue 1, 2009, Pages 42~48
DOI : 10.3795/KSME-A.2009.33.1.42
A design methodology for control strategy and control structure gives a direct impact on wind turbine's performance and life cycle. A baseline control law which is a variable rotor speed and variable pitch control strategy is introduced, and a mathematic performance model of a wind turbine dynamics is derived. By using a numeric optimization algorithm, the steady state operating conditions of wind turbines are identified. Because aerodynamic interaction of winds with rotor blades is basically nonlinear, a linearization procedure is applied to analyze wind turbine dynamic variations for whole operating conditions. It turns out the wind turbine dynamics vary much depending on its operating condition.

This paper presents the optimal shape of microelectrode that generates dielectrophoretic(DEP) force to separate particles in homogeneous medium. The principle of the particles sorting is based on the use of the relative strengths of negative DEP (nDEP) and drag forces, as in a general DEP-activated cell sorter (DACS). To numerically calculate the DEP force and drag force, the simulation is implemented in MATLAB 7.0. The properties of particles, which are used in simulation, are similarly selected as those of cells to apply cell separation. The most optimized shape of electrode is selected by numerical simulation according to a variety of electrode shape such as rectangle, trapezoidal, and right-triangle. Through, in addition, parameter study, we found that applied frequency is more significant factor on the separation than various parameters, such as applied voltage and permittivity of medium, that decide on the strength of DEP force.

Cell migration is one of the essential mechanisms responsible for complex biological processes. Intensive researches have begun to elucidate the mechanisms and search intriguing conditions for efficient control of cell migration. One general mechanism that is widely applicable for cells including Escherichia coli, amoebae and endothelial cell is chemotaxis. The single cell study for bacterial chemotaxis has an advantage over studies with the population of cells in providing a clearer observation of cell migration, which leads to more accurate assessments of chemotaxis. In this paper, we propose a three-dimensional model considering a single bacterium to study its chemotaxis. The semi-implicit Fourier spectral method is applied for high efficiency and numerical stability. The simulation results reveal rich dynamics of cell migration and provide quantitative assessments of bacterial chemotaxis with various chemoattractant gradient fields.

Jeon, Kwang-Woo ; Shin, Kwang-Bok ; Ko, Hee-Young ; Kim, Dae-Hwan ;
Transactions of the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers A, volume 33, issue 1, 2009, Pages 64~71
DOI : 10.3795/KSME-A.2009.33.1.64
In this paper, a study on low-velocity impact response of honeycomb sandwich panels was done for the changes of impact location and core fabrication angles. The test specimens were made of glass/epoxy laminate facesheet and aluminum honeycomb core. Square samples of 100mm and 100mm sides were subjected under low-velocity impact loading using instrumented testing machine at three energy levels. Impact parameters like maximum force, time to maximum force, deflection at maximum force and absorbed energy were evaluated and compared for the changes of impact location and core fabrication angle. The impact damage size were measured at facesheet surface by 3-Dimensional scanner. Also, sandwich specimens after impact test were cut to analyse the failure mode.

This paper provides simulational round robin test results for welding residual stress prediction of safety/relief nozzle. To quantify the welding variables and define the recommendation for prediction and determination of welding residual stress, 6 partners in 5 institutes participated in round robin test. It is concluded that compressive axial and hoop residual stress occurs in dissimilar metal weld and pre-existing residual stress distribution in dissimilar metal weld was affected by similar metal weld due to short length of safe end. Although the reason for the deviation among the results was not pursued further, the effect of several key elements of FE analyses on welding residual stress was investigated in this paper.
A Study on Optimal Wear Design for a Gerotor Pump
Kwon, Soon-Man ; Nam, Hyoung-Chul ; Lu, Lei ; Shin, Joong-Ho ;

DOI : 10.3795/KSME-A.2009.33.1.82
A disadvantage in the design of gerotor pump is a lack of parts that can be adjusted to compensate for wear in the rotor set, and as a consequence, it causes a sharp reduction of efficiency. In this paper, an attempt has been made to reduce the wear rate between the rotors of a gerotor pump. To do this, floating genetic algorithm (FGA) is used as an optimization technique for minimizing the wear rate proportional factor (WRPF). The result shows that the wear rate can be reduced considerably, e.g. approximately 8% in this paper, throughout the optimization using FGA.

DOI : 10.3795/KSME-A.2009.33.1.89
In this paper, a computer software for dynamic analysis of a high mobility tracked vehicle with pre/post processor is developed. Model of a tracked vehicle is composed of chassis, turret, mount, gun, and road-wheel assembly. Track is modeled as an extensible cable and the track tensions are applied on the wheels as external forces. The system equations of motion and constraint acceleration equations are derived in the joint coordinate space using the velocity transformation method. The pre and post processors are developed using the Visual C++.
