  • Battery prognostics using a self-cognizant dynamic system approach 

    Bai, Guangxing; Wang, Pingfeng (IEEE, 2015)
    This paper proposes a new self-cognizant dynamic system approach for Battery PHM, that incorporates an artificial neural network model into a dual extended Kalman filter (DEKF) algorithm. A feed-forward neural network ...
  • Modeling of corrosion pit growth for prognostics and health management 

    Xie, Chaoyang; Wang, Pingfeng; Wei, Fayuan; Huang, Hongzhong (IEEE, 2015)
    Pitting corrosion is one of the most destructive types of metal degradation and it can result in catastrophic failure of components due to transition of pits to stress corrosion cracks under loading. To facilitate the ...
  • Mechanical properties of out-of-autoclave non-crimp fabric epoxy composites for manufacturing plant elevations 

    Soltani, Seyed A.; Le, Gena; Asmatulu, Ramazan (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2015)
    Mechanical properties of a commercial out-of-autoclave non-crimp fabric epoxy prepreg (AR2527 NCF) composite were investigated in detail for the manufacturing plant elevations. To simulate the effects of elevation, the ...
