Abstract(2496) PDF(544)
The asymptotic method and phase field simulation were applied to study the influences of variation of the surface tension with temperature on the movements of solid-liquid interfaces in the solidification process of spherical and cylindrical nuclei respectively.Results indicate that Marangoni effect will increase the critical nucleation radius,slow up the movement of interface.The tip speed of dendrite decreases linearly with Marangoni number for melt without convection.The results of phase field simulation are qualitatively in accordance with that of asymptotic method.

Abstract(2173) PDF(488)
The large eddy simulation method has been used to simulate the diffusion of H2SO4 vapor in the parallel twin jets.The distributions of number concentration and size of nanoparticles produced by nucleation and coagulation in sulfuric acid/water system were given.The functions of the sulfur content,relative humidity and jet Reynolds number were evaluated according to the distributions of number concentration and size of nanoparticles.The results show that the nucleation in sulfuric acid/water system produces large number of nanoparticles,and ga-sto-nanoparticle conversion mostly takes place in the middle and interface of the twin jets.The coagulation process of particles reduces the number concentration but increases the mean particle size.For the case with higher sulfur content,more number and smaller size nanoparticles are produced by nucleation and coagulation.There is also a larger number of nanoparticles for the cases with higher relative humidity and jet Reynolds number.

Abstract(2623) PDF(458)
A robust attitude tracking control scheme for spacecraft formation flying is presented.The leader spacecraft with a rapid mobile antenna and a camera was modeled.While the camera is tracking the ground target,the antenna is tracking the follower spacecraft.By an angular velocity constraint and an angular constraint,two methods were proposed to compute the reference attitude profiles of the camera and antenna,respectively.To simplify the control design problem,the desired inverse system(DIS),which can convert the attitude tracking problem of 3D space into the regulator problem,was derived.Based on DIS and sliding mode control(SMC),a robust attitude tracking controller was developed in the presence of mass parameter uncertainties and external disturbance.By Liapunov stability theory,the closed loop system stability can be achieved.The numerical simulations show that the proposed robust control scheme exhibits significant advantages for the multi-target attitude tracking of a two-spacecraft formation.

2008, 29(2): 181-187.
Abstract(4219) PDF(781)
The Hopf bifurcations of an airfoil flutter system with a cubic nonlinearity are investigated with the flow speed as a bifurcation parameter.The center manifold theory and complex normal form method were used to obtain the bifurcation equation.Interestingly,for a certain linear pitching stiffness the Hopf bifurcation is both supercritical and subcritical.It is found,mathematically,this is caused by the fact that one coefficient in the bifurcation equation does not contain the first power of the bifurcation parameter.The solutions of the bifurcation equation are validated by the equivalent linearization method and incremental harmonic balance method.

Abstract(2608) PDF(519)
Disturbances in a homogeneous,isotropic elastic medium with generalized thermoelastic diffusion,when a moving source is acting along one of the co-ordinate axis on the boundary of the medium,are investigated.Eigen value approach was applied to study the disturbance in Laplace-Fourier transform domain for a two dimensional problem.The analytical expressions for displacement components,stresses,temperature field,concentration and chemical potential were obtained in the physical domain by using a numerical technique for the inversion of Laplace transform based on Fourier expansion techniques.These expressions were calculated numerically for a copper like material and depicted graphically.As special cases,the results in generalized thermoelastic and elastic media were obtained to depict the diffusion and thermal effects in the medium theoretically and numerically.

Abstract(2295) PDF(628)
Entropy generation for thermally developing forced convection in a porous medium bounded by two isothermal parallel plates was investigated analytically on the basis of the Darcy flow model where the viscous dissipation effects had also been taken into account.A parametric study showed that decreasing the group parameter and the P clet number increases the entropy generation while for the Brinkman number the converse is true.Heatline visualization technique is applied with an emphasis on Br is less than 0 case where there is somewhere that heat transfer changes direction at some streamwise location to the wall instead of its original direction,i.e.from the wall.

Abstract(2116) PDF(553)
The properties of propagation far-field patterns corresponding to the scattering of time harmonic acoustic waves by a bounded penetrable obstacle in an ocean waveguide were concerned with.The sets of solutions to the transmission problem were constructed such that the restriction of these solutions to the boundary of the penetrable obstacle is dense in a Hilbert space.Then conditions under which a set of propagation far-field patterns is complete in a Hilbert space were determined.These properties are important in investigating inverse transmission problems in an ocean waveguide.
