• Kinematic analysis of cam profiles used in compound bows 

    Hanson, Andrew Joseph, 1984- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    The first compound bow was invented in Missouri in 1969. [Allen, 1968] Compound bows are uniquely different from other types of bows in that they use a set of cables, cams and pulley, and two elastic limbs that act as ...
  • Modeling, verification, optimal design of nonlinear valve spring 

    Su, Yu-Cheng, 1982- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    The objective of this study is the optimal design of helical spring based on dynamic criteria. The most important dynamic performance criterion of a helical spring is the resonance behavior, including dynamic stress, coil ...
  • Parametric and optimal design of modular machine tools 

    Harby, Donald, 1967- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Over the years machine tools for manufacturing have developed into two classes. One is the general purpose machine tools, and the other is designed for machining large quantities of a specific part or process. These ...
  • Research and design of 5.4-inch diameter mold rotary press for coal log and biomass compaction 

    Xue, Kang, 1955- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 1999-07)
    The research and development (R&D) of coal log compaction machines is very important for commercializing tl1e new technology of coal log pipeline (CLP). The CLP technology will be successful commercially only if the machine ...
