  • Análisis del efecto del apriete y la rigidez de contacto en la precisión de un mecanismo de levas conjugadas 

    Català Calderon, Pau; Cardona Foix, Salvador; Santos López, M. Antonia de los (2012)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Los mecanismos de levas conjugadas requieren de un ajuste con apriete para compensar las tolerancias de fabricación y montaje y al mismo tiempo evitar la separación de las superficies de las levas y los ...
  • Physics-based motion planning: evaluation criteria and benchmarking 

    Ud Din, Muhayy; Akbari, Aliakbar; Rosell Gratacòs, Jan (Springer, 2015)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Motion planning has evolved from coping with simply geometric problems to physics-based ones that incorporate the kinodynamic and the physical constraints imposed by the robot and the physical world. Therefore, the criteria ...
  • Reasoning-based evaluation of manipulation actions for efficient task planning 

    Akbari, Aliakbar; Ud Din, Muhayy; Rosell Gratacòs, Jan (Springer, 2015)
    Conference lecture

    Nowadays, the environmental concern in machining industry is a fact. Because of that, in this article a new cooling-lubrication system which combines CO2 cryogenic and MQL technologies is presented. The aim of this new ...
  • New solution to prevent excessive wear in wind turbine gears 

    Farré Lladós, Josep; Westerberg, Lars; Casals Terré, Jasmina (Curran, 2014)
    Conference report
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    During wind turbines operation, yaw and pitch bearings suffer from sequential traction-compression stresses causing millions of micro movements per cycle between the gear teeth. This situation reduces the lubricant thickness ...
