A new feedback control model is provided that allows a wheeled vehicle to follow a prescribed path. Differently from all other methods in the literature, the method that is proposed neither requires the computation of a projection of the robot position on the path, nor does it need to consider a moving virtual target to be tracked. Nevertheless, it(More)
Ethylene-butyl acrylate copolymer (EBA) with 13% of butyl acrylate content was used to produce blends with 10, 30 and 60% of thermoplastic starch (TPS) plasticized with glycerol. Ethylene-acrylic acid copolymer (EAA) was used as compatibilizer at 20% content with respect to EBA. The blends were characterized by X-ray diffraction, ATR-Fourier Transform(More)
This work shows two models of nonlocality for the phase field of non-isothermal phase transitions. In one case the constitutive equations involve the phase field through functionals of the phase field over the region of the body; in the other one the nonlocality is represented by functions of the gradient. The second law is expressed in integral form for(More)
A class of models of Cahn-Hilliard fluids are developed by considering two incompressible non-reacting phases. The concentration of one of the phases, satisfying the classical diffusion equation, is regarded as the order parameter. The balance of energy and the entropy inequality are taken as for a single constituent but, owing to the non-simple character(More)
