The impetus for the investigation was a paper by Gardner and Magnasco. Their paper described an instantaneous frequency decomposition method that they used in the study of bird song and human speech. ...Two questions that immediately arise are can Gardner and Magnasco's technique resolve the low frequency components that occur in door closing sounds and, if so, do they relate to human perception of thump?
The model is based on the Richard's equation simplified for the zero-gravity conditions. The half-saturation distance or the zone of influence of the porous annular suction tubes on the cold-plate porous material will be in the range of 1 to 10 cm for the time scales ranging from 100 to 10,000 seconds and moisture diffusivity in the range of D = 10-4 to 10-6 m2/s.
Spotlight on Bernard Gilmont Ian Adcock talks with the European Aluminium Association director about light weighting and improved vehicle efficiency Hydrogen: The Power Broker Andrew English on the challenges of storing hydrogen, using metal-organic frameworks Bridging the gap In an Automotive Design exclusive, Richard Yarrow reveals the secrets behind Harman's interconnected infotainment technology
In a 1998 SAE presentation Richard Stroud of Delco Electronics showed that ‘more’ of anything related to audio (loudness, equalization, et. al.) is often considered to be ‘better’ by untrained listeners1 This paper discusses the human mechanisms that influence the effect and concludes that independent professional evaluation is the best alternative for preserving quality of listening evaluations.
Another operating company has in service 50 vehicles equipped with Gardner direct-injection engines. Several direct-injection systems are illustrated, and curves for comparative fuel-consumptions of the Leyland engine, using gasoline and using gas oil, are presented.
This paper will take a deeper look at growth, form and proportion in nature (Kriegh & Gardner, 2002), and relate understandings to current work in space-based kit-of-parts building systems (Howe, 2002) and orbital organizational design principles (Sherwood, 2002).
In the introduction of Automotive Engineering Fundamentals, Richard Stone and Jeffrey K. Ball provide a fascinating and often amusing history of the passenger vehicle, showcasing the various highs and lows of this now-indispensable component of civilized societies.
In 1998 the Institute of Architecture and Product Development, led by Professor Richard Horden at the University of Technology Munich started a 1 year program in Space Architecture for architecture students.
From 1983 to 1995, Richard H. Lyon published several papers on Statistical Phase Analysis, showing that the average phase of the transfer functions in complex systems grows with frequency in proportion to the modal density of the system.
In fact, some OEM's have specified a 2.0 or lower sixty degree Gardner gloss level for most first surface interior components molded in color (MIC) and without paint or a secondary finishing process such as a vinyl wrap.

Air Bag Development and Performance: New Perspectives from Industry, Government and Academia begins with five chapters - one each from Editor Richard Kent and the collection's four Associate Editors - offering the authors' unique perspectives on the history, development, or performance of these important safety devices.
A pilot safe driving program for Marines was jointly developed by the Richard Petty Driving Experience and Clemson University Automotive Safety Research Institute. The pilot program includes four modules based on leading causes of vehicle crashes, and uses classroom and behind the wheel components to improve and reinforce safe driving skills and knowledge.
The role that vehicle dynamics can and should play in effective automotive chassis development and the information and technology flow from vehicle system to subsystem to piece-part is integrated into the presentation. Dr. Richard Lundstrom develops and solves governing equations of motion for both steady and transient conditions.
