Changing the direction of locomotion involves lateral translation of the body in addition to body reorientation to align with the new travel direction. We designed this study to investigate the CNS control of these postural adjustments. The specific aims of the study were: first, to test the hypothesis that anticipatory head movements towards the new travel(More)
This study investigated the contribution of ankle muscle proprioception to the control of dynamic stability and lower limb kinematics during adaptive locomotion, by using mechanical vibration to alter the muscle spindle output of individuals' stance limbs. It was hypothesised that muscle length information from the ankle of the stance limb provides(More)
— This paper tackles the problem of power regulation for wind turbines operating in the top region by an adaptive passivity based individual pitch control strategy. An adaptive nonlinear controller that ensures passivity of the mapping aerodynamic torque-regulation error is proposed, where the inclusion of gradient based adaptation laws allows for the(More)
The main objective of this work concerns the evaluation of the biological aerated filtration model found in GPS-X, which had never been evaluated with adequate data. This model is interesting since it integrates the physical and biological phenomena involved during filtration with a low complexity of use. The validation of the model parameters combines(More)
