Prognostics and Electronics: Development of Research Questions

- Research Questions The primary goal of this paper was to examine the validity of four sets of hypotheses that stem from four central research questions: 1.) Can prognostics be successfully implemented on electronic circuit cards that have embedded diagnostics. The reason this research question was chosen is that prior research indicates that there have been no successful instances where prognostics have been implemented on electronic circuit cards. The cases that were presented in the prior research were all unsuccessful because of modeling uncertainties, the lack of intelligent algorithms, and the lack of technical exploration in electronic prognostics (Saxena, Celaya, Saha, Saha, & Goebel,...   [tags: Electronics]

A Brief Biography of Ludwig Prandtl

- Fluid Dynamics is a subject that is well over 2,000 years old. Archimedes, da Vinci, Galileo and Newton are all classical forerunners of modern fluid dynamics researchers such as Bernoulli and Euler (Anderson 42). However, until the early 19th century, this subject was not well quantified; instead, textbooks were comprised of endless tables and figures demonstrating phenomena. When Daniel Bernoulli, Claude Navier and George Stokes introduced mathematics to the realm of fluid flow, new research was possible, but this work was highly theoretical and required extensive use of differential equations (Eckert 15)....   [tags: Biography ]

Carbon Fibers Invented by Thomas Edison

- Introduction: Carbon fibers were invented in the late 1800’s by Thomas Edison for use as filaments in the first lightbulbs. They were originally composed of cellulose based materials like cotton, which underwent pyrolysis: the process of being carbonised by baking at high temperatures. These early carbon fibres were used predominantly for their resistance to changes in temperature and also their ability to conduct, however lacked the high tensile strength of modern fibres. Nowadays these are created from petroleum based substances....   [tags: modern fibres, lighbulbs]
