Design of bipedal walking robot and reduction of dynamic impact in joints
Bipedal walking robots have distinguished themselves from other robots not only for their better mobility but also for the increased amount of complexity in their architecture. The issue of walking stability has inherently been related with these in various aspects from dynamics to controls. It has been defined in various ways for different aspects and these definitions have served as guidelines for designing a walking robot. This research is based on a design of a walking robot and development

Finite element modeling of energy absorption characteristic of hybrid structure - composite wrapped
The study of axial crush behavior of metal and composite tube has become a basis for the design of crashworthy structure in automotive and aircraft applications. Unlike metals, polymer composite material displays little or no plastic deformation characteristics. Research has showed that the hybrid tube usually made of inner aluminum tube over-wrapped with Eglass fiber reinforced epoxy have significantly higher energy absorption than either aluminum tube or composite tube. It is therefore importa

eCHO Vestis - re-engineering of a waistcoat.
The eCHO project was a collaboration between LCF and Queensland University of Technology, Australia. A collection of vintage garments, neither dated nor identified, was donated by the Australian National Trust as inspiration to generate new ideas and projects. I selected a well worn vest (or waistcoat) for study. When examining the garment it revealed fascinating details: the buckle was 'British Made', the fabric was 'homemade tapestry' yet the construction was professionally tailored. Was t
