Software for Plastic Deformation and Fatigue Analyses of Materials
Background Plastic deformation is permanent deformation in a metal due to a sufficient load of stress, where fatigue is the weakening of a metal due to repeated loading. Mechanical components in machines are subjected to repeated forces over a desirable life time and fatigue failure is a major design concern. Methods to predict life and strength of...

Method and Loading Module to Mechanically Increase Pile/Drilled Shaft End Bearing Stiffness
Background Drilled shafts are deep foundation elements constructed in soil to resist compressive, uplift and lateral loads. This process involves drilling a hole to a design depth, and filling the hole with reinforcing steel and concrete. Tip resistance is not usually accounted for when estimating the overall capacity of drilled shafts and bored piles...

Deep Foundation Porewater Pressure Dissipater
BackgroundPorewater pressure, or the pressure of groundwater held within soil, rock, or gaps between particles, is an important factor in determining the stress state of soil. If the porewater pressure is increased to equal the applied soil effective stress, the soil may lose its strength and stiffness, and act more like a liquid, in a process called...

Embedded, Dynamic Model Identification for Differential Machine Motion
Background While implementation of a forward kinematics in a machine, it is difficult to follow a task using sensors and actuators, which are usually considered imperfect. Controlling heavy machines with the help of hydraulic adds another difficulty to the efficiency of the actuators. To avoid such difficulty and also for energy loss reduction, mobile...
