Nonlinear dynamics analysis of the human balance control subjected to physical and sensory perturbations

Postural control after applying perturbation involves neural and muscular efforts to limit the center of mass (CoM) motion. Linear dynamical approaches may not unveil all complexities of body efforts. This study was aimed at determining two nonlinear dynamics parameters (fractal dimension (FD) and largest Lyapunov exponent (LLE)) in addition to the linear standing metrics of balance in perturbed stance. Sixteen healthy young males were subjected to sudden rotations of the standing platform. The

Despite focusing their research on cities, there is no focus on spatiality in the context of the knowledge creation process of firms. Contextualizing city–firm relations Germany is an interesting case for studying the functional and spatial dynamics of the knowledge economy since it is Europe’s biggest

The wheel-rail contact friction influence on high speed vehicle model stability

Right estimating of the coefficient of friction between the wheel and rail is essential in modelling rail vehicle dynamics. Constant value of coefficient of friction is the typical assumption in theoretical studies. But it is obvious that in real circumstances a few factors may have significant influence on the rails surface condition and this way on the coefficient of friction value. For example the weather condition, the railway location etc. Influence of the coefficient of friction changes

MODIFIED RECURSIVE BAYESIAN ALGORITHM FOR ESTIMATING TIME-VARYING PARAMETERS IN DYNAMIC LINEAR MODELS

An attempt to address this limitation resulted in the use of Recursive Bayesian Algorithms (RBAs) which is also affected by increased computational problems in estimating the Evolution Variance (EV) of the time-varying parameters.

QUANTITATIVE FEEDBACK THEORY-BASED ROBUST CONTROL FOR A SPINDLE OF LATHE MACHINE

This paper presents theoritical and experimental design of a robust control based on quantitative feedback theory (QFT) approach to control deepness variations on cutting process for a spindle of lathe machine. The dynamics of a spindle is uncertain and varying due to deepness variation on cutting process. Practical design steps are explained in which QFT based conditions are assembled to obtain a compensator and pre-filter gain to control a spindle. The robust controller show an advantage
