Vorticity Dynamics of Leading-Edge Vortex Formation on a Revolving Wing

Vorticity Dynamics of Leading-Edge Vortex Formation on a Revolving Wing

A leading-edge vortex (LEV) forms and remains stably attached on high angle-of-attack (AoA), low aspect ratio (AR) wings undergoing revolving or flapping motion at an insect’s wing. Here, the LEV formation on a revolving wing is investigated. The 'Shake-the-box' (STB) Lagrangian particle tracking velocimetry (PTV) system and a volumetric patching process helped reconstruct the entire time-resolved flow field.

Experimental and Finite Element Studies of a 250 kW Brushless Doubly Fed Induction Generator

Experimental and Finite Element Studies of a 250 kW Brushless Doubly Fed Induction Generator

Brushless doubly fed induction generator (BDFIG) can replace doubly fed slip-ring induction generators for offshore wind power generation. This study uses experimentally verified finite element (FE) analysis, various performance measures of the BDFIG when magnetic wedges are used for closing stator open slots to show that the use of magnetic wedges increases the performance of the generator.

Independent Generation of Sequence Elements by Motor Cortex

Independent Generation of Sequence Elements by Motor Cortex

Rapid execution of motor sequences depends on fusing movement elements into cohesive units that are executed holistically. The contribution of the primary motor and dorsal premotor cortex to this ability is determined in this paper. Also, the hypothesis that movement elements fuse makes specific predictions regarding three forms of activity, preparation, initiation, and execution is investigated.
