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

System Identification and Parameter Estimation
This course is about non-parametric system identification based on estimators of spectral densities and its application to open-loop and closed-loop systems. Furthermore parameter estimation for linear and non-linear systems playes an important role. At the end of the course, a choice can be made out of three final assignments, for which recorded signals are available. The available demonstration programs have to be adapted in order to estimate proper transfer functions and model parameters. St
