  • Synthesized AI LMI-based Criterion for Mechanical Systems
  • Abstract This paper proposes a novel artificial intelligence sythethized controller in the mechanical system which has high speed computation because of the LMI type criterion. The proposed membership functions are adopted and stabilization criterion of the closed-loop T-S fuzzy systems are obtained through a new parametrized LMI (linear matrix) inequality which is rearranged by machine learning membership functions.

  • Investigation on Noise Pollution Comprehensive Treatment of Distribution Transformer in Living Area
  • Abstract In the current paper, which deals with the noise pollution excited by distribution transformers in the living area, a comprehensive treatment scheme is put forward for the purpose of reducing the sound pressure level emitting into the environment. In accordance with the associated test standard, the sound pressure levels of distribution transformer and surrounding environment are not only tested but analyzed as well. The measurements were carried out with the frequency analysis of the 1/3 octave resolution, with the center frequencies at 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 400 Hz, and 500 Hz. As illustrated, on the basis of the measurement results,… More

  • Species-Related Difference to Noise Reduction Between Trees in Urban Forest: The Abidar Forest Park (Case Study)
  • Abstract Sound pollution is one of the most important urban problems which endangers mental and physical health of the residents. This study was aimed to assess the influence of different tree species, including Fraxinus rotundifolia, Robinia pseudoacacia, Platanus orientalis, Platycladus orientalis, and Pinus eldarica, in reducing noise pollution in the Abidar Forest Park. A further objective was to identify the contaminated areas of Sanandaj city and to propose suitable noise absorbent tree species in consistent conditions. For each tree stands the noise measurements were performed during intervals at frequencies of 250, 500 and 1000 Hz, besides an open area with the… More

  • Experimental Investigation of Nonlinear Vibration Isolator with Fluidic Actuators (NLVIFA)
  • Abstract This paper elaborates a nonlinear fluidic low frequency vibration isolator designed with the characteristics of quasi-zero stiffness (QZS). The existing model of QZS vibration isolator enhances amplitude of vibration and attenuating vibration frequencies. This concern with displacement plays a vital role in the performance and instability of oblique spring setup reduces the isolator performance in horizontal non-nominal loads, in this accordance; this paper associates double acting hydraulic cylinder (fluidic actuators in short) in oblique and helical coil spring. An approximate expression of unique analytical relationship between the stiffness of vertical spring and bulk modulus of the fluid is derived for… More

  • Experimental Investigation and Semi-Active Control Design of A Magnetorheological Engine Mount
  • Abstract In this paper; the dynamic characteristics of a semi-active magnetorheological fluid (MRF) engine mount are studied. To do so, the performance of the MRF engine mount is experimentally examined in higher frequencies (50~170 Hz) and the various amplitudes (0.01 ~ 0.2 mm). In such an examination, an MRF engine mount along with its magnetically biased is fabricated and successfully measured. In addition, the natural frequencies of the system are obtained by standard hammer modal test. For modelling the behavior of the system, a mass-spring-damper model with tuned PID coefficients based on Pessen integral of absolute error method is used. The… More
