A small perturbation based optimization approach for the frequency placement of high aspect ratio wings
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-03-26)
Design denotes the transformation of an identified need to its physical embodiment in a traditionally iterative approach of trial and error. Conceptual design plays a prominent role but an almost infinite number of possible ...
Methods for increased computational efficiency of multibody simulations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-08-08)
This thesis is concerned with the efficient numerical simulation of finite element based flexible multibody systems. Scaling operations are systematically applied to the governing index-3 differential algebraic equations ...
Multiresolution strategies for the numerical solution of optimal control problems
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-03-26)
Optimal control problems are often characterized by discontinuities or switchings in the control variables. One way of accurately capturing the irregularities in the solution is to use a high resolution (dense) uniform ...
