A robust fixed point transformation-based approach for type 1 diabetes control

Modeling and control of diabetes mellitus (DM) are difficult due to the highly nonlinear attitude, time-delay effects, the impulse kind input signals and the lack of continuously available blood glucose (BG) level to be regulated. Regarding the mentioned problems, identification of DM model is crucial. Furthermore, due to the lack of information about the internal states (which ...

A new equation and exact solutions describing focal fields in media with modular nonlinearity

Brand-new equations which can be regarded as modifications of Khokhlov–Zabolotskaya–Kuznetsov or Ostrovsky–Vakhnenko equations are suggested. These equations are quite general in that they describe the nonlinear wave dynamics in media with modular nonlinearity. Such media exist among composites, meta-materials, inhomogeneous and multiphase systems. These new models are interesting ...

Targeted energy transfer and modal energy redistribution in automotive drivetrains

The new generations of compact high output power-to-weight ratio internal combustion engines generate broadband torsional oscillations, transmitted to lightly damped drivetrain systems. A novel approach to mitigate these untoward vibrations can be the use of nonlinear absorbers. These act as Nonlinear Energy Sinks (NESs). The NES is coupled to the primary (drivetrain) structure, ...
