  1. The overall objective of this laboratory experiment is to investigate the effects of proportional, derivative and integral control on system performance, in particular transient response (overshoot, speed of response) and steady state error.

    From this figure, we calculate the average acceleration (counts/ ), as given by the encoder by carefully measuring the velocity difference and dividing by the time difference (500ms) through the positive-sloped linear segment: The hardware gain is represented by the following relationship: kkw = kckaktkpkeks Eq.1 Where: kc, the DAC gain, = 10V / 32,768 DAC counts ka, the Servo Amp gain, = approx. 2 (amp/V) kt, the Servo Motor Torque constant, = approx. 0.1 (N-m/amp) kP, the Drive Pulley ratio = 3 (N-m @ disk / N-m @ motor)

  2. The goal of this lab is to understand the dynamic parameters behind a second order oscillatory system. We will see how different inertias, spring coefficients and damping coefficients will affect the natural frequency and damping ratio of the system

    Simply comparing the constants in R(s) and G(s) will yield two equations Eq.2.1.1-1 and Eq.2.1.1-2. (Consider kR(s) and G(s) to be equal.) Eq. 2.1.1-1 Eq. 2.1.1-2 Once we find appropriate values for ?n and ?, the above equations will give values for bsystem, k, and J. 2.1.2 Inverse Transform of the System Transfer Function Some useful relationships pop up when we perform inverse Laplace transform to G(s). Eq. 2.1.2-1 Eq. 2.1.2-2 By the definition of damped natural frequency, we know that. When we substitute t0 to G(t) and divide it with G(tn) we get . Eq. 2.1.2-3 Since t0 and tn are chosen at the peak of the graph, where and reaches its maximum, we can simplify the above equation down to Eq.

    * Utilising a known movable weight positioned on the deck at approximately the middle of the longitudinal centreline and a pendulum hanging inside the vessel. * The weigh(jockey) W is moved from the centreline a known distance (?x)towards the side and this moves the centre gravity of the pontoon from centreline to a new position * This causes the vessel to tilt,the angle of tilt (??) is being measured by the pendulum. In order to obtain a good accurate laboratory readings * Centralized jockey weight correctly, the plumb bob line was central and the bob was not snagging on the scale.

    (Ochi, M. et al 2002) Osteoarthritis affects 8 million people in the UK, many more in America, and these numbers are sure to grow considering the aging population of 1st world countries. The continuing obesity epidemic coupled with the typical western diet of processed, denatured and pasteurised foods will amplify the problem inflating the demand for tissue engineered cartilage worldwide.

The extracted oil is to be used for food preparation etc, so hygiene is a factor to be aware of. Background Hemp is a name that is used in order to refer to at the whole species of the plants known as Cannabis. Hemp products have been used for over 10,000 years; they are useful for making ropes and clothes due to their strong fiber.

  6. Biofuels in the UK - Group report

    The process in which biomass converts this light energy into chemical energy is through photosynthesis. This is the process of converting carbon dioxide and water to sugars and oxygen using solar energy. The equation of this process is: (Equation 1) Carbon Dioxide + Water + Light -->Sugar + Water Plants efficiency of converting solar energy into chemical energy it is very low; it is about 3-6% [2]. It is this low because otherwise the plants can be damaged by the light and can lead to damage of the photosynthetic systems [3]. Comparing this to other renewable energy systems, for example, solar panels which have a far higher efficiency of anywhere between 7%-40% [4].

  7. Microwave Electronics - the Network Analyzer experiment. In this lab, we have used the Hewlett Packard HP8720 Network analyser to measure the S-Parameters for some simple devices.

    By connecting the instrument to various microwave networks a wide variety of precision measurements can be made [1]. And the final part is use of the reflection/transmission test set to observe variations in the amplitude and the phase of the test device over a range of frequencies . Various devices have been thus tested, including stub tuner, horn, and micro strip patch antenna. The procedures are given in details in the next sections of the report. The explanations given do not go into too much depth of the theories of the subject because the experiments were aimed at only giving a brief introduction of the functions of the equipment (the Network Analyser).

    For this we use a Vector Network Analyser, often referred to, without qualification, as a Network Analyser. This instrument has two microwave inputs, the REFERENCE input and the TEST input, and gives as output the relative amplitude (dB) and phase (deg.) between the two inputs. By connecting the instrument to various microwave networks a wide variety of precision measurements can be made. And the final part is use of the reflection/transmission test set to observe variations in the amplitude and the phase of the test device over a range of frequencies .

  12. Field Report - Surveying

    The levelling instrument is set up at different points around the Horton building, depending on the position of the manhole covers. A scaled levelling staff is placed on the manhole cover holding by one person. The observer then reads the measurement on the levelling staff through the levelling instrument and records the readings. In order to set up the levelling instrument correctly, we have to ensure that the horizontal line of collimation of the levelling instrument is perpendicular to its vertical axis using a method called "Two Peg Test".

  15. Control System- Pressure Regulator

    Although the use of control measure is in most cases involved with mechanical equipment, they can also be used in fields such as (e.g. in the social, biological or in different other systems). The science of achieving control, by using or not using feedback, is the method of control theory. This is applicable to system control in general. Most control systems have evolved by the practice of trial and error, for the critical design of system controls with the need for extensive analysis of two factors, the control devices and the process.

  16. Computational fluid dynamic (CFD). The CFD method is an important method to determine the flow characters of submerged jets into cavities.

    Based on the value of Reynolds numbers, the types of flows can be divided as below. Laminar flow generally happens when dealing with small pipes and low flow velocities. Laminar flow can be regarded as a series of liquid cylinders in the pipe, where the innermost parts flow the fastest, and the cylinder touching the pipe is not moving at all. In turbulent flow, the vortices happens, eddies and wakes make the flow unpredictable. Turbulent flow happens in general at high flow rates and with larger pipes.

  20. CO2 Emmisions

    Finally, the research will explore the technologies, both readily available and those being developed, which can establish companies as leaders in combating the CO2 emissions problem. Transport Companies do realize the effects of climate change and the need for new policy to reach the goal of lowering CO2 emissions. The research now needs to be done on the necessary technologies required and how policy will help shape and govern these technologies that will eventually reach the milestone of decarbonization. The issues are dependent upon one another however.

  21. Environmental Issues in Engineering Projects. This paper will be discussing about the environmental impacts and its assessment on each of the phases of the engineering projects and its evaluation throughout the project lifecycle.

    Engineering and manufacturing industry has increasing use of metals, plastic, oil and rubber which are used in the production of numerous end products which can be associated with different industries such as Car production units, shipping industries, Cotton mills, plastics industries, Coal mining, heavy machineries and etc which are causing numerous arduous effects and are considered to be non-environment friendly. Engineering and industrial wastes can be one of the mundane environmental issues which are referred as Anthropogenic (Eoearth, 2008). The term anthropogenic is used in the light of common waste caused by engineering and manufacturing industries which can be chemical waste, metal waste and toxic gas release that can pollute water, land and air severely.
