Shear Strength Prediction of Deep Beams by Softened Truss Model

B.R Niranjan
2012 IOSR Journal of Mechanical and Civil Engineering  
The softened truss model theory, which has been successively used for low rise shear walls and torsion, is extended to deep beams.  ...  Conclusion: By using the taguchi method/table is shown in below, by using this we can optimize the injection process parameters, using optimum process parameters we can achieve minimum shrinkage, which  ...  There are many reasons for warpage, process parameters alone is often powerless to solve.  ...

A neurofuzzy algorithm for learning from complex granules

Bruno Apolloni, Simone Bassis, Jacopo Rota, Gian Luca Galliani, Matteo Gioia, Luca Ferrari
2016 Granular Computing  
A further complication is that the outputs are evaluated exactly in terms of the true unknown values held by the fuzzy attributes, which in turn must be inferred by the system.  ...  Namely, receiving in input a set of both crisp and fuzzy variables (respectively, from the hard_suit and the soft_suit of the c-granule to account for user and device logs), the inference system is asked  ...  We may see the squeezed thread of the parameters due to the reset of their range after the sticking in a local minimum.  ...

Integration of continuous caster and hot strip mill planning for steel production

Peter Cowling, Wafa Rezig
2000 Journal of Scheduling  
Since these processes lie at the solid=liquid interface we use 'virtual' slabs, corresponding to possible (but not yet cast) solid forms of liquid steel, as a means of communication between hot strip mill  ...  Our model is solved using a combination of mathematical programming and heuristic techniques and we show that the solutions provided are very nearly optimal.  ...  These processes are the subject of our planning system and we will discuss them in detail later.  ...
