The vibrations of axially functionally graded (AFG) beams are examined incorporating shear deformation and an imperfection. A coupled nonlinear model is developed in the Hamiltonian framework for an AFG imperfect beam. Different sources of displacement nonlinearities are involved in this problem, namely, the geometrical nonlinearities due to the large deformations, and the nonlinearities due to the presence of a geometrical imperfection along the length of the beam. Expressions for the virtua...
Intestinal infections like worms are common in many poor
countries and even when continuous
treatment is arranged at low cost, diagnostics and identification of
treatment fails due to unavailability of diagnostic equipment and resources.
With the proliferation of raspberry pi micro controller, data transfer networks
and digital microscopy applications the stage is set for alternatives to
conventional microscopy in endemic areas. Our aim was to show, as proof of
concept, that it is po...
