A novel adaptive sliding mode control design is developed for trajectory tracking of a class of flexible robots in this paper. This control design uses a force/position controller for robots with flexible joints where the friction between the end effector and the environment is taken into account. For systematic reasons the controller is designed(More)
Three-dimensional integration provides a new way of performance growth for microprocessor architectures. While a recent studies report promising performance improvement numbers, majority of the processor stacking options are thermally-limited. Elevated stack temperatures have significant effect on the overall energy efficiency and reliability of the(More)
A critical part of structural health monitoring is accurate detection of damages in the structure. This paper presents the results of two multi-class damage detection and identification approaches based on classification using Support Vector Machine (SVM) and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN). The article under test was a fiber composite panel modeled by a(More)
