Low frequency responses of negative-stiffness viscoelastic continuum
Yun-Che Wang

Composite materials consist of alternate ferroelastic, such as barium titanate, and metallic material, may exhibit unusual viscoelastic behavior due to ferroelastic phase transition. The unusual behavior includes singular damping and extreme viscoelastic stiffness, as well as enhancements on coupled-field properties, such as piezoelectricity and pyroelectricity. Following the …

Increased Aortic Stiffness and Attenuated Lysyl Oxidase Activity in Obesity
Yau-Sheng Tsai

Obesity increases the risk for stroke, cardiovascular diseases, cardiovascular mortality, and all-cause mortality in humans. One potential mechanism through which obesity exerts adverse effects on the vascular system is by increasing aortic stiffness, a change known to be predictive of increased cardiovascular mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate the pathophysiology that links …

Design and evaluation of small, linear QWERTY keyboards
Fong-Gong Wu

Smaller keyboards are necessary in order to minimize the size of digital devices. The QWERTY keyboard has been around so long that most people are accustomed to its key positions. However, small keyboards result in slower typing. Besides, traditional keyboards are mechanical and shifting of position is required when typing, while digital keyboards do not require the shift of position but …

A Fast Color Information Setup Using EP-Like PSO for Manipulator Grasping Color Objects
Tzuu-Hseng S. Li

How to separate useful information from the raw image data is an important issue to all the applications of visual servoing. Without accurate positions of objects, a manipulator cannot move to the right position and grasp the target what we want. This paper presents a novel approach to classify different color objects, obtain the target image, and build a lookup table based on the preceding …
