  • The commonly used TMD design method in the project assumes the TMD has pure linearity. However, in real engineering TMD will exhibit nonlinear behaviors. Without considering the nonlinearity of TMD, the control effect of the TMD that is designed by the linear design method, may be worse and even enlarge the structural response. In this paper, based on the previous study results of nonlinear TMD, the improved design method for engineering application is proposed. The linear design method and the improved design method are compared. Taking the best parameter obtained by the improved design method is less than or equal to 90% of that obtained by the original design method as the dividing line. The critical nonlinear coefficient, reaching which value the improved design method needs to be used, is given. Finally, numerical simulations on two engineering examples are conducted to proof the results.

  • In this paper, we propose an efficient design method for a thermal camera with continuous zoom based on the research and manufacturing experience of the thermal camera. In addition, it is divided into system design method, optical design method, mechanical design method, and electronic design method. First, we propose an effective NUC compensation method and a lens-specific sensitivity design method in terms of system. Second, we propose a zoom trajectory design method considering the temperature effect on the optical aspect. Third, it suggests the minimization of optical axis shaking between magnification conversion in terms of mechanism. Finally, we propose a lens-specific temperature compensation method and a speed conversion algorithm according to the zoom interval as an electronic aspect.

  • Objective: This study aims to compare the usability of the adaptive touch design method with that of the height adjustable design method that are applied to the Korean QWERTY keyboard and Naratgul keyboard on smartphones, examine the results, and present practical implications. Background: Smartphone manufacturers have failed to satisfy every user with their uniform touch keyboard designs that do not consider the high use rates of keypad use. In reality, touch keyboard designing customized for every individual is impossible, but there need to be researches on was to improve usability by having touch areas changed automatically depending on user behaviors or having users adjust the keyboard height depending on their hand size. Method: As for the design methods, an object group was given smartphones with the adaptive touch design method and the other group those with the height adjustable design method. As they entered the same characters in the smartphones, typing error rates and text input speed were measured and the average values were compared. 35 individuals who would frequently use smartphones in daily life participated in the experiment. The group variable was the type of touch keyboards, and the test variables were typing error rates and text input speed, for which a T-test was implemented. Results: As for the QWERTY keyboard, the significant improvement effect was verified as the typing error rate of the adaptive touch design method was 4.21% but that of the height adjustable design method was 3.28% although there was no significant difference in terms of text input speed. As for the Naratgul keyboard, in contrast, the typing error rate of the adaptive touch design method was 2.5% while that of the height adjustable design method was 1.48%, which indicates a measure of improvement, but the effect was not significant. On the other hand, the text input speed per minute was improved as much as 22.2%, which is significant. Conclusion: First, the Korean touch keyboard usability of the adaptive touch design method and that of the height adjustable design method, when applied to Model A of Company L, showed significant difference from each other. Second, the height adjustable design method was applied to the QWERTY keyboard, the typing error rate was improved significantly. This indicates that as the keyboard height was raised, the number of buttons within the range of fingering decreased, decreasing the touch bias was reduced. Third, the height adjustable design method was applied to the Naratgul keyboard, the text input speed was improved. Application: When the QWERTY keyboard was applied to a smartphone as small as 5.5inch or less, it is highly probably that the height adjustable design method decreases the typing error rate. It may be considered to develop additional UX functions to make the keyboard font larger or give users the option to adjust button intervals in utilization of the SW advantages of the height adjustable design method.

  • The movable building has very specific solutions and operation mechanisms in order to solve problems of the non-movable buildings. The design method of the movable building needs to be done through an understanding process of its own characteristics and mechanisms. This study aims to make a proposal of a basic design method for movable building and to think about its appliance possibilities. A design method for movable buildings following a process of five steps was developed and was based on the evaluation step, recent studies and literature review about movable mechanisms. Finally, the present study proposes the deploying movable building on road spaces and its application plans through the movable building design method application.

  • Recently, a variety of uses for combined reinforced concrete and steel have been applied in actual construction, which are called hybrid structures. The purpose of the hybrid construction is the high-efficiency of structural behaviors. But the design method of SRC is relatively complicated design method. So, it hasn't detailed design method yet and we are depending upon foreign specifications. In this study, To develop the design method of SRC at the condition of composite behaviors, makes process about major factors that affects the composite behaviors. And we suggested fundamental data of the composite behaviors by experiments.

  • The design method of Geosynthetics reinforced Railway Roadbed that was developed in Germany in 1997 is presently putting into practice. This method insists that Railway Roadbed Thickness has to be measured by Frost and Bearing Capacity The Maximum Value from the above two measurements is the necessary Railway Roadbed Thickness. This design method has many kinds of advantage in economic, constructive aspect, and environmentalism. Recently a few Korean experts actively have researched on this area, but their results are not enough for proper design method. Ⅰ hope more complete study on this area will be progressed.

  • In this paper, the design method of sliding mode control (SMC) system for SISO linear system is discussed. First, we consider the similarity between the design method of sliding mode hyper plane using the strict positive realness and the characteristics of zeros of feedback system and the design method of simple adaptive control. Based on such a consideration, we propose the new design method of SMC system using parallel dynamic compensator. As a result, SMC system can be constructed only with the derivative of output signal for controlled plant. The performance of SMC system designed by proposed method is confirmed through the numerical example.

  • A new earthquake design method performing iterative calculations with secant stiffness was developed. Since basically the proposed design method uses linear analysis, it is convenient and stable in numerical analysis. At the same time, the proposed design method can accurately estimate the inelastic strength and ductility demands of the structural members through iterative calculations. In the present study, the procedure of the proposed design method was established, and a computer program incorporating the proposed method was developed. The proposed method, as an integrated analysis and design method, can directly address the earthquake design strategy intended by the engineer, such as limited ductility of member and the concept of strong column - weak beam. Through iterative calculations on a structural model with member sizes preliminarily assumed, the strength and ductility demands of each member can be determined so as to satisfy the given design strategy. As the result, structural safety and economical design can be achieved.
