Stability control of a fixed full-wing layout UAV under manipulation constraints
- The fixed full-wing layout unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has simple structure and high aerodynamic efficiency, but the special configuration and manipulation characteristics bring challenges to...
Epitaxially Integrated Hierarchical ZnO/Au/SrTiO3 and ZnO/Ag/Al2O3 Heterostructures: Three-Dimensional Plasmo-Photonic Nanoarchitecturing
30/11/2021 - In this study, we fabricated three-dimensional (3D) hierarchical plasmo-photonic nanoarchitectures by epitaxially integrating semiconducting zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires with vertically oriented...
Mechanical, thermo-mechanical and biodegradation behaviors of green-composites prepared from woven structural nettle (Girardinia diversifolia) reinforcement and poly(lactic acid) fibers
- A driving force for rising demand in green composites is a growing necessity of cleaner environment. The green composites are increasingly being assessed for their efficacies as a structural...
Evaluating the transition to the circular economy in the agri-food sector: Selection of indicators
01/01/2022 - The agri-food sector is one of the key sectors where the action is needed to ensure the transition to a more sustainable development model in line with the principles of the circular economy (CE)....
Whole slurry saccharification of mild oxalic acid-pretreated oil palm trunk biomass improves succinic acid production
- The present work compared two different routes in preparing oil palm trunk biomass (OPTB) hydrolysates for producing industrially-valuable succinic acid (SA). OPTB was initially pretreated with...
Chemical Modification of Banana Trunk Fibers for the Production of Green Composites
11/06/2021 - Natural fibers have proven to be excellent reinforcing agents in composite materials. However, a critical disadvantage of natural fibers is their hydrophilic nature. In this study, banana trunk...
Isolation and Characterization of Alpha and Nanocrystalline Cellulose from Date Palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) Trunk Mesh
07/06/2021 - Highly pure cellulosic polymers obtained from waste lignocellulose offer great potential for designing novel materials in the concept of biorefinery. In this work, alpha-cellulose and nanocrystalline...
Integrated design and experimental verification of assembly fiber reinforced thermoplastic plastics (AFRTP) automobile seat beams
01/09/2021 - Although the fiber reinforced thermoplastic plastics (FRTP) materials has been widely applied in the automotive industry for non-load-bearing or semi-load-bearing parts, they are hardly used in...
Chemical and Morphological Composition of Norway Spruce Wood (Picea abies, L.) in the Dependence of Its Storage
17/05/2021 - Chemical composition and morphological properties of Norway spruce wood and bark were evaluated. The extractives, cellulose, hemicelluloses, and lignin contents were determined by wet chemistry...
Some improvements of hybrid trim method for a helicopter rotor in forward flight
- The main difficulty of the trimming for helicopter rotor CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) lies in the high computational cost and low computational efficiency. The BET/CFD hybrid trim method,...
