In this paper we are interested in the problem of convergence of the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the Laplacian with Went zell-Robin boundary condition to the eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the Laplacien with Dirichlet boundary condition when the Robin parameter tends to infinity. We show in particular that the convergence of eigenfunctions is better than the usual internal convergence in and boundary convergence in

It is known that the Green function of a boundary value problem is a meromorphic function of a spectral parameter. When the boundary conditions contain integro differential terms, then the meromorphism of the Greens function of such a problem can also be proved. In this case, it is possible to write out the structure of the residue at the singular points of the Greens function of the boundary value problem with integro differential perturbations. An analysis of the structure of the residue...

"Upright is modified version of knuckle. It is one of the most critical components in an automotive. Upright is the part that is connected with suspension arms, the hub brake caliper mounting and also the steering tie rod in formula vehicle. For Formula vehicle the goal is to design a light weight, yet sufficiently strong upright. All the loads reacted by the wheels are transmitted to the chassis through the â€˜A' arms indirectly from the upright. Generally the nature of the loads is...

This work is dedicated to the solution of direct and inverse spectral problems for Sturm-Liouville differential operators on star-shaped graphs with n+ 1 edges; n edges are finite, and one edge is infinite. Eigenvalues visible at infinity, eigenvalues invisible at infinity and resonances of this spectral problem are found. It is shown that the problem of determining n unknown coefficients of boundary conditions by n eigenvalues visible at infinity and (or) resonances has n! solutions. If the...

Employing a recently proposed 'multi-wave interaction' theory, inertial spectra of capillary gravity waves are derived. This case is characterized by a rather high degree of nonlinearity and a complicated dispersion law. The absence of scale invariance makes this and some other problems of wave turbulence (e.g., nonlinear inertia gravity waves) intractable by small-perturbation techniques, even in the weak-turbulence limit. The analytical solution obtained in the present work for an arbitrary...

These fundamental differences include the convergence of the sample path of stochastic models to the disease-free state and...

The matter dealt with in the present paper has a direct bearing on the taking-off and alighting of seaplanes. The liquid is assumed as being non-viscous and incompressible, and the acceleration due to gravity is neglected. The following considerations therefore apply the more exactly the smaller the body and the more quickly it moves. In the case of prolonged. and primarily of uniform processors, the arguments hold only in the close neighborhood of the body. The investigations deal first with...

High density-altitude operations of helicopters with advanced performance and maneuver capabilities have lead to fundamental research on active high-lift system concepts for rotor blades. The requirement for this type of system was to improve the sectional lift-to-drag ratio by alleviating dynamic stall on the retreating blade while simultaneously reducing the transonic drag rise of the advancing blade. Both measured and computational results showed that a Variable Droop Leading Edge (VDLE)...

Abstract — Stochastic advection diffusion equation (SADE) with multiplicative stochastic input is a practical mathematical model for different physical phenomena. In this paper, SADE will be studied using two spectral stochastic techniques. The first is the Wiener chaos expansion (WCE) technique and the second is the Wiener-Hermite expansion with perturbation (WHEP) technique. These techniques convert the SADE into a system of deterministic partial differential equation (DPDE) that can be...

The steady full-potential equation is written in the form of Poisson's equation, and the solution for the velocity field is expressed in terms of an integral equation. The integral solution consists of two surface integrals and one volume integral. The solution is obtained through successive iteration cycles. Each cycle of iteration consists of two sub-cycles, an inner cycle for wake relaxation and an out cycle for the strength of the source distribution integrals representing the flow...
