LAMB WAVE BASED MONITORING OF PLATE-STIFFENER DEBODING USING A CIRCULAR ARRAY OF
PIEZOELECTRIC SENSORS

In this paper we propose an efficient way of localization and parametric identification of metallic plate-stiffener debonding. A concept and experimental results based on a circular array of Piezoelectric Wafer Active Sensors (PWASs) is presented. Implementation of this circular array of PWASs combines the Lamb wave technique and symmetry breaking in the signal pattern to monitor the growth of a debonding of a stiffener on a metallic plate. Wavelet time-frequency maps of the sensor signals are

STATE OF THE ART ON SECURE AND LOW COST RFID AUTHENTICATION PROTOCOLS FOR RFID BASED VEHICLE LICENSE PLATE

RFID technology has many potential applications that would ease object identification seamlessly. One of its potential benefits to government is the adoption of RFID tag as embedded smart material within vehicle license plate. However, adoption of RFID in vehicle license plate is fragile from various RFID attacks while efforts to improve its security will lead to additional cost. Enhancing RFID security without extra cost poses new challenges to researchers in the area. This study aims to

ANALYSIS OF OSCILLATORY MOTION OF SIN GIRDERS WITH SEMIRIGID JOINTS

In girders with corrugated web, semirigid joints alter damping and vibrational frequency, which indirectly produces a change in the integrated stiffness of girders K, thus diversifying the magnitude of displacement amplitudes of forced vibration [4, 5, 6]. On the basis of investigations relying on the method of vibration measurements, rotational stiffness of semirigid end-plate connections was determined [2, 3].

It has been suggested that motor behaviours should be taken into account when evaluating the influence of EE on pain modulation (Parent-Vachon and Vachon, 2018). For that reason, the current study aimed to evaluate the effects of EE on both pain sensitivity in the hot plate and emotional measures obtained in the elevated zero maze. One of the most common basic components of EE

Multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification assay for blood group genotyping, copy number quantification, and analysis of  RH variants

the MLPA to facilitate these different types of genetic variation is a prerequisite in blood group typing. An MLPA assay allows the simultaneous detection of up to 50 polymorphisms in a single tube. The blood group MLPA currently consists of three separate probe pools targeting 104 different blood group alleles of 18 blood group systems. The assay is performed in a 96-well plate; therefore, a maximum of 32 genomic DNA samples can be processed simultaneously. Results are available within 24 hours
