Abstract

The article is devoted to highlight the challenges, bottlenecks and possible solutions of VHF antenna integrated into a winglet from both the designer‘s and the airframer‘s perspective. We look into pros and cons specific for different antenna solutions and discuss ways how to [...]

Abstract

Within this paper we discuss a numerical strategy to solve the elasticity problem upon unstructured and non conforming meshes, allowing all kinds of flat-faced elements (polygons in 2D and polyhedra in 3D). The core of the formulation relies on two numerical procedures 1) the Control [...]

Abstract

A large number of breakaway-type highway signs toppled over during hurricane María in Puerto Rico.  The cause was the unintended rupture of the fuse plates, a key component of the breakaway system.  The design of fuse plates is unusual because two opposing constraints [...]
