Configuration of a magnetorheological (MR) damper is similar to a traditional fluid damper. The difference is that a magnetorheological damper uses MR fluid to replace traditional hydraulic oil. MR fluid is composed of many tiny magnetic particles suspended in silicon oil. Without a magnetic field, the fluid acts like traditional hydraulic oil. With a(More)
The performance aspects of a wireless ‘active’ sensor, including the reliability of the wireless communication channel for real-time data delivery and its application to feedback structural control, are explored in this study. First, the control of magnetorheological (MR) dampers using wireless sensors is examined. Second, the application of the MR-damper(More)
The objective of this paper is to present two modal identification methods that extract dynamic characteristics from output-only data sets collected by a low-cost and rapid-to-deploy wireless structural monitoring system installed upon a long-span cable-stayed bridge. Specifically, an extensive program of full-scale ambient vibration testing has been(More)
This study explores decentralized structural control using wireless sensors and controllers. In a decentralized control scheme, control decisions are based upon data acquired from sensors located in the vicinity of a control device. Specifically, this paper studies a time-delayed decentralized structural control strategy that aims to minimize the H2 norm of(More)
This study examines the potential use of wireless communication and embedded computing technologies (WiSSCon) within real-time structural control applications. Based on the implementation of the prototype WiSSCon system in a three story steel test structure with significant eccentricity, a centralized control architecture is implemented to mitigate the(More)
Breast-conserving surgery (BCS) including radiotherapy (RT) has been demonstrated to provide at least equivalent prognosis to mastectomy in early-stage breast cancer. However, studies on triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) patients are relatively scarce. The current population-based study aimed to investigate the distinct outcomes between BCS+RT and(More)
Adenoid cystic carcinoma of the breast (breast-ACC) is a rare and indolent tumor with a good prognosis despite its triple-negative status. However, we observed different outcomes in the present study. Utilizing the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database, we enrolled a total of 89,937 eligible patients with an estimated 86 breast-ACC(More)
Innovative numerical-substructure-based (NB) approach for the control and performance testing of a nonlinear base-isolated structure dynamically substructured system is presented. Dynamic substructuring enables a full-size, critical component of an entire system to be physically tested, whilst the remaining parts are simulated numerically. Successful tests(More)
