Optimal design techniques are not routinely used in the industry when dealing with complex physical phenomena, due to high computing costs. In the CFD field, simplified methods can only provide discrete solutions. The parameterization method described in this paper is based on the differentiation and high-order Taylor-series expansion of the discretized(More)
This paper proposes a multi-model based approach that estimates joint position and collision detection of a lightweight electric actuator dedicated to manipulation tasks. Taking advantage of an optimized back-drivable mechatronic design, the use of proprioceptive measures at the motor level enables the estimation of the unmeasured terminal position of the(More)
Optimal design techniques are not routinely used in the industry when dealing with complex physical phenomena, due to high computing costs. The parameterization method described in this paper is based on the differentiation and high-order Taylor-series expansion of the discretized Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes equations. A flow database containing the(More)
Reliability tests and simulated results on medium power components are discussed in this paper. This study is based on statistical data coming from thermal cycling tests (TCT, air-air test) and thermal shock tests (TST, liquid-liquid test), which are correlated with information coming from failure analysis and compared to results issued from 3D finite(More)
The production of the Standard Model Higgs boson in the associated channel pp ! HW , with H ! ZZ () is studied in the mass range between 150 and 300 GeV/c 2. An isolated electron or muon from the W decay, and 2 electron or muon pairs from the Z decay are selected as signature. We calculate the effect of mass and isolation cuts for the signal and for the(More)
