An overview of the recently developed Lambert W function approach for analysis and control of linear time invariant time delay systems (TDS) with a single known delay is provided. A solution via the Lambert W function is first presented for systems of order one, then extended to higher order systems using the matrix Lambert W function. Free and forced solutions, stability, observability, controllability, and observer and controller design via eigenvalue assignment can all be studied based on this framework. The use of the Matlab-based open source software in the LambertW-DDE Toolbox is introduced using examples. © 2012 IFAC.

The relationship between the oleophobicity of micropatterned surfaces and the reduction of oil adhesion at low temperatures was explored by using siloxane elastomer surfaces as a model system. Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) surfaces were fabricated with varying oleophobicity from oleophilic to superoleophobic by combing the blending of trichloro(1H,1H,2H,2H-perfluorooctyl)silane (FDTS) into PDMS with the construction of bioinspired micropillars. The oil contact angles of micropillars were >130°, with the largest contact angle measured to be 146°. The micropillared surface showed remarkable self-cleaning properties; the contact angle hysteresis was <15°. The transparent oil droplets on PDMS surfaces of varied oleophobicity were frozen into a white-colored solid at -25 °C with the aid of a cooling system. Adhesion forces of the frozen oil droplets were obtained from the knock-off tests, showing that the adhesion forces dropped with the increased oleophobicity. The largest adhesion force was observed on the oleophilic flat surface, while the lowest adhesion force was on the highest oleophobic micropillared surface. The relative effectiveness of chemical and physical modifications on adhesion strength reduction was studied in terms of FDTS and micropillars, respectively. The results showed that a reduction of adhesion strength by 4% was reached by blending FDTS into flat PDMS, while a much more pronounced reduction of frozen oil adhesion strength by 60% was achieved by blending FDTS into PDMS micropillars; these results suggested a possible synergic effect of the FDTS chemistry and micropillar on the reduction of adhesion strength of frozen oil droplets. © 2015 American Chemical Society.

The internal force of a variable displacement vane pump has been studied in detail with ten Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) cases with different pump speed and eccentricity. The internal moment increases considerably with faster pump speed, and at higher speeds, it can exceed the moment due to the spring force causing the slide to regulate at much lower pump discharge pressure. At low pump speeds, the effect of eccentricity is minimal. The maximum value of internal moment is expected to occur at high speeds and maximum eccentricity. There are two reasons for variation of internal moment with pump speed and eccentricity: (a) the variation of effective pressurized area of the slide changes with pump speed and (b) higher pressure in the blind ports at higher eccentricity. This study provides insight into pump forces during high-speed operation of vane pumps. Copyright © 2012 SAE International.
