The Automaton within Man Ray's Films: From Mechanical to Darwinian
This thesis explores two films within Man Ray’s oeuvre: Le Retour à la Raison (1923) and L’Étoile de Mer (1928). These films seem wholly unrelated to one another – Le Retour emphasizes avant-garde filmmaking techniques and ...
Patient Ambulation Assessment Using Depth Cameras
In the field of medical care, effective assessment of human activities is essential for understanding the patient's physical state in general and postoperative recovery, in particular. Detecting human joints by using depth ...
Global Bifurcation of Periodic Solutions in Symmetric Reversible Second Order Systems with Delays
Global bifurcation and spatio-temporal patterns of periodic solutions (with prescribed period) to second order reversible equivariant autonomous systems with commensurate delays is studied using the Brouwer O(2)×Γ×Z2-equivariant ...
Design Improvement of Pumping Mechanisms in Daily Necessities for Efficient Recycling
This thesis concerns the design methodology that replaces metallic springs with plastic ones, which will improve the recycling rate of plastic products. Although metallic compression springs are inexpensive and widely used ...
Torque Profile Improvement of Double Stator Switched Reluctance Motor Through Mechanical Offset Between Inner and Outer Stator
The double stator switched reluctance motor is a derivative of the traditional SRM, using a segmented rotor and two coaxial stators to increase flux density in the machine and improve torque density. Switched reluctance ...
