Unlike the falling cat, lizards can right themselves in mid-air by a swing of their large tails in one direction causing the body to rotate in the other. Here, we developed a new three-dimensional analytical model to investigate the effectiveness of tails as inertial appendages that change body orientation. We anchored our model using the morphological(More)
INTRODUCTION We developed a protocol to initiate surgical source control immediately after admission (early source control) and perform initial resuscitation using early goal-directed therapy (EGDT) for gastrointestinal (GI) perforation with associated septic shock. This study evaluated the relationship between the time from admission to initiation of(More)

—Electric vehicles (EVs) have a disadvantage in that the cruising distance per charge is short. This paper proposes a model-based range extension control system (RECS) for EVs. The proposed system optimizes the front and rear driving-braking force distributions by considering the slip ratio of the wheels and the motor loss. The optimal distribution depends(More)
