Engineering Analysis with Boundary Elements | Year: 2013
Evaluation of shear stresses distribution due to external shear forces applied to De Saint-Venant beams has been solved through Complex Variable Boundary Element Method properly extended, to benefit from advantages of this method, so far widely used for twisted solids. Extending the above method, further simplifications have been introduced such as those of performing line integrals only, instead of domain integrals. Numerical applications confirm accuracy and efficiency of the proposed extended version of the method, since the good agreement with results proposed in literature. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

Many studies on reducing across-wind responses of tall buildings have been investigated, mainly focusing on the effect of corner shape. And it is also known that changing section along the height through tapering or set-back could reduce across-wind responses of tall buildings. In this paper, to investigate the mechanism of aerodynamic force reduction, the wind tunnel tests for fluctuating pressure and fluctuating force were carried out. Two models with different tapering ratio of 5% and 10%, one set-backed model and one prototype square prism with side ratio of unity were employed under two typical boundary layers which represent suburban and urban flow condition. It is concluded that tapering or set-back helps to reduce the mean drag force and the fluctuating lift force. Reduction ratio increases as tapering ratio increases, and the set-backed model is more effective to reduce the fluctuating lift force than the tapered model with identical surface area, reducing the coefficients about 40% in suburban flow condition. And by tapering and set-back, the power spectra of wind pressures at sideward surface become wideband and the peak frequencies depend on height, which makes the correlation near the Strouhal component low or even negative. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

Optical Review | Year: 2014
The progress of science and technology has directly affected the development of lens optics, and the requirements for high-performance optics have been a driving force behind improvement in this field. I will introduce various improvements in lens optics in which I have had a hand, and which make me firmly believe that the development of lens optics will never cease, thus leading us to conclude that “Lens optics will be brilliant forever”. © 2014, The Optical Society of Japan.

This paper presents the review of the development and application of the thermally activated desiccant cooling technologies. The paper first introduces the global problem of energy and the environment related to the consumption of the carbon-based energy sources (gas, oil and coal). The contribution of the building sector to the above problem so as to maintain indoor environment providing human thermal comfort is shown. In this paper, the alternative methods for the provision of the human thermal comfort through thermally activated desiccant cooling technologies are discussed - solid desiccant, liquid desiccant and hybrid desiccant cooling systems. These technologies are potential alternatives to the mechanical vapor compression cooling technologies in the provision of human thermal comfort conditions. However, the development and application is mostly in developed and advanced developing countries. For a global scale solution to the problem of energy and environment contributed by the building sector for maintenance of comfortable conditions, dissemination of ideas and technologies to the developing world (Africa, South and South East Asia, South America) enhances the applicability and practicability of these technologies. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

Structural damping, particularly in wind-resistant design applications where the main structure is desired to generally remain within linear-elastic limits, has been widely attributed to a stick-slip mechanism occurring at material interfaces between primary structural members and secondary components. However, no one has yet proven this analytically using an appropriate mathematical model and probabilistic considerations. A theoretical expression for damping due to one stick-slip component (SSC) in a simple linear 1DOF system is thus first derived. In actual structures, there can be a very large number of SSCs, so theoretical expressions are then derived to pursue the study for a number of different cases, also considering different probability distributions to characterize the large number of unknown parameters. One apparent result from all analyses carried out is found: damping increases but eventually decreases with amplitude due to these SSCs. This amplitude dependency of structural damping can be observed in measurements on actual structures, demonstrating that the stick-slip phenomenon can indeed be a primary mechanism behind structural damping in wind-resistant design applications. Finally, the implication on the design wind loads of using the derived model in contrast to current models is discussed, illustrating a limitation in these damping models. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

Since islanding of photovoltaic (PV) generation can cause safety problems, it should be prevented. This paper proposes a correlation-based islanding-detection method (IDM) using current-magnitude disturbance for a PV system. As an islanding-detection index, this paper uses the correlation factor between current-magnitude disturbance and the corresponding inverter output voltage. The proposed IDM uses the characteristics in which the up/down current disturbance has a strong correlation with the PV output voltage when islanding occurs. The proposed method has fast islanding capability and high power quality. For verification of the proposed method, the simulated and experimental results of a 3-kW PV inverter by IEEE Std. 929-2000 and IEEE Std. 1547.1-2005 are provided. The proposed correlation technique can be used in other active antiislanding methods based on the correlation between the current and voltage after islanding occurs. © 2006 IEEE.

This study investigates the interference effects between two rectangular-section high-rise buildings by wind tunnel experiments, focusing on local peak pressure coefficients. Wind tunnel experiments were carried out under 72 wind incidence angles for various configurations. Two building arrangements were considered: parallel and perpendicular. To evaluate the interference effects for local peak pressures in detail, interference factors for largest positive and smallest negative peak pressures are presented and discussed. The results show that interference effects greatly depend on configuration and wind direction. Unfavorable positions are generally concentrated at the edges and corners of a building. Flow visualization was also conducted to check the flow field between two buildings. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd.

A lifetime prediction model of stress-induced voiding (SIV) has been developed to investigate the geometry dependence of lifetime in Cu/low-? interconnects. A physical extrapolation model based on Cu ionic transport and time-dependent stress relaxation is proposed for obtaining an accurate estimation. The validity of the model is discussed from the viewpoints of linewidth and temperature dependences by comparison with an extrapolation using the empirical power law. © 2014 The Japan Society of Applied Physics.
