    • Adaptive Backstepping Control for a Fully-Actuated Rigid-Body in a Dual-Quaternion Framework 

      Andersen, Tom Stian; Kristiansen, Raymond (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2020-03-12)
      We address the trajectory tracking problem for a fully actuated rigid-body with unknown mass and inertia parameters and unknown disturbance forces, using an adaptive backstepping controller based on dual-quaternions. We show that the proposed controller, in closed loop with a nonlinear model of the system, renders the equilibrium points uniformly asymptotically stable. The proposed controller ...

      Within this paper the ISO 12494 assumption of standard of slowly rotating reference collector under ice accretion has been tested. This concept, introduced by (Makkonen, 1984), suggests that the power line cables, which are the basis of the “reference collector” in the ISO framework, are slowly rotating under ice load, due to limited torsional stiffness. For this purpose, several Computational Fluid ...

    • An Empirical Study on the Impact of Cultural Types on Resources Integration Model 

      Solvang, Wei Deng; Zhan, Yan; Lu, Jiansha (Journal article; Peer reviewed; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2012)
      From the perspective of Resource-based Theory (RBT), organizational culture can be a source of sustained competitive advantage. And resources integration models, divided by property rights of resource, not firm boundary, as internal and external resources integration models, are presented as being specific in different cultural contexts. However, the litera- ture review shows the absences of an ...
