An Accurate and Cost Effective Method for Ground Based Measurement
of Aerosol Optical Depth

Aerosols content in atmosphere is one of the environmental issues both in climate forcing and human health effects. They exert a variety of impacts on climate directly by interaction with solar terrestrial radiation and on human health because of the pollution in air with particulate matter. Thus, continuous monitoring of aerosol content in air is vital. Measurement of atmospheric aerosol is typically performed by satellite observation, airborne measurement, and ground-based instruments. Aerosol monitoring using satellite, airborne, and LiDAR are quite prohibitive with necessary complex and expensive instrumentation. In contrast, ground-based sunphotometer is cost-effective, portable, and has less complicated measurement algorithms. Unfortunately, frequent calibration of the operating instrument is required to maintain its retrieval accuracy. Conventionally, the existing calibration method is performed either by absolute calibration or using Langley extrapolation at high altitude. The former method is always complicated by the degradation of the standard light source. While the main purpose of the latter method performed at high altitude is to obtain homogeneous and stable sky condition but this involves logistics and financial problems. We proposed a solution for these issues is by introducing an objective algorithm for data selection that closely imitates the high altitude clear-sky condition for measurements taken at low altitudes. For this purpose, Perez and Du Mortier sky classification are used and combined with a statistical filter to ensure ideal clear sky data are selected. Cross reference with i-SMARTS model in aerosol optical depth value shows a perfect agreement with low uncertainty and comparable to most other studies that performed at high altitude.

Increasing the Electrical Power Output From Piezoelectric Harvesting System Using Width-Split Method

We proposed a simple method to increase the piezoelectric power harvesting from ambient vibration by folding equally and then splitting a given dimension of piezoelectric material with the pre-defined dimensions so that the conversion of energy is more efficient during the vibration by reducing the viscous damping of the piezoelectric materials. It can be incorporated with other optimization techniques for maximizing the output power density. The experimental results of this work show that the power harvested increases 145 percent by the first folding and 176 percent by the second folding as compared to power harvested without folding.

Introducing the Ideal Band-pass Filter for Mode Shape Reconstruction of an Impulse Excited Structure
The Hilbert-Huang transform was used to develop the mode shape reconstruction in vibration testing using continuous scanning laser Doppler vibrometer (CSLDV) and empirical mode decomposition. However, the mode shape reconstruction process suffers a great setback due to the interference of frequency components other than the frequency of interest. Although theoretically the interference can be removed using conventional bandpass filter, there is another great setback as the conventional filter suffer from phase shifting problem which could confuse the sign determination and coordinate-trajectory matching. In order to overcome this problem, an innovative step of using ideal bandpass filters was introduced. As a result, the Hilbert-Huang transformation can be used to recreate almost perfect structural mode shape even in the impact excitation case. The work was carried out at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea together with Prof. Dr. Semyung Wang of Intelligent System Design Laboratory

New Application of the Fixed-Points Theory
The fixed-points theory has its root dating back to 1932 by Hahnkamm. Since then, it has been used in many applications as one of the design laws in fabricating a vibration neutralizer for relatively simple structures. We reformulated the theory to be applied in global vibration control of complex body such as beams and plates. Part of the work was developed at Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, South Korea together with Prof. Dr. Semyung Wang of Intelligent System Design Laboratory

Active-Passive Analogy
Prior to the establishment of e-VIBS, Dr. Jedol Dayou, together with Prof. Dr. Micheal John Brennan (formally with ISVR now at Departamento de Engenhaira Mecanica, Universidade Estadual Paulista "Julio De Mesquita Filho") have developed the active-passive vibration control analogy. In this analogy, he successfully established a procedure to make use the well-known active vibration control method to determine the parameters of vibration neutralizers that minimizes the vibration amplitude of a structure. Using this method, the control performance of the passive control device can be made comparable to its active control counterpart.
