The study of dynamics of tank
vehicles carrying liquid fuel cargo is complex. The forces and moments due to
liquid sloshing create serious problems related to the instability of tank
vehicles. In this paper, a complete analytical model of a modular tank vehicle
has been developed.The model included all the vehicle systems and subsystems. Simulation
results obtained using thismodelwas compared
with those obtained using the popular TruckSimsoftware. The comparison proved the
validity of the assumptions used in the analytical model and showed a good
correlation under single or double lane change and turning manoeuvers.

Abstract:
Let D be a bounded domain in ℝn(n≥2). We consider the following nonlinear elliptic problem: Δu=f(⋅,u) in D (in the sense of distributions), u|∂D=ϕ, where ϕ is a nonnegativecontinuous function on ∂D and f is a nonnegativefunction satisfying some appropriate conditions related to someKato class of functions K(D). Our aim is to prove that the aboveproblem has a continuous positive solution bounded below by afixed harmonic function, which is continuous on D¯. Next, we will be interested in the Dirichlet problem Δu=−ρ(⋅,u) in D (in the sense of distributions), u|∂D=0, where ρ is a nonnegative function satisfying some assumptions detailed below.Our approach is based on the Schauder fixed-point theorem.

This paper is concerned with the existence of bounded positive solution for the semilinear elliptic problem in subject to some Dirichlet conditions, where is a regular domain in ？ with compact boundary. The nonlinearity is nonnegative continuous and the potential belongs to some Kato class . So we prove the existence of a positive continuous solution depending on by the use of a potential theory approach. 1. Introduction In this paper, we study the existence of positive bounded solution of semilinear elliptic problem where is a -domain in with compact boundary, and are fixed nonnegative constants such that , and when is bounded. The parameter is nonnegative, and the function is nontrivial nonnegative and continuous on . Numerous works treated semilinear elliptic equations of the type For the case of nonpositive function , many results of existence of positive solutions are established in smooth domains or in , for instance, see [1–5] and the references therein. In the case where changes sign, many works can be cited, namely, the work of Glover and McKenna [6], whose used techniques of probabilistic potential theory for solving semilinear elliptic and parabolic differential equations in . Ma and Song [7] adapted the same techniques of those of Glover and McKenna to elliptic equations in bounded domains. More precisely, the hypotheses in [6, 7] require in particular that and on each compact, there is a positive constant such that . In [8], Chen et al. used an implicit probabilistic representation together with Schauder's fixed point theorem to obtain positive solutions of the problem ( ). In fact, the authors considered a Lipschitz domain in , with compact boundary and imposed to the function to satisfy on , where is nonnegative Borel measurable function defined on and the potentials are nonnegative Green-tight functions in . In particular, the authors showed the existence of solutions of ( ) bounded below by a positive harmonic function. In [9], Athreya studied ( ) with the singular nonlinearity , , in a simply connected bounded -domain in . He showed the existence of solutions bounded below by a given positive harmonic function , under the boundary condition , where is a constant depending on , , and . Recently, Hirata [20] gave a Chen-Williams-Zhao type theorem for more general regular domains . More precisely, the author imposed to the function to satisfy where the potential belongs to a class of functions containing Green-tight ones. We remark that the class of functions introduced by Hirata coincides with the classical Kato class introduced for

Let D be a bounded domain in n ( n ≥ 2 ) . We consider the following nonlinear elliptic problem: Δ u = f ( , u ) in D (in the sense of distributions), u | D = , where is a nonnegative continuous function on D and f is a nonnegative function satisfying some appropriate conditions related to some Kato class of functions K ( D ) . Our aim is to prove that the above problem has a continuous positive solution bounded below by a fixed harmonic function, which is continuous on D ˉ . Next, we will be interested in the Dirichlet problem Δ u = ρ ( , u ) in D (in the sense of distributions), u | D = 0 , where ρ is a nonnegative function satisfying some assumptions detailed below. Our approach is based on the Schauder fixed-point theorem.

Abstract:
We present in this paper a new formulation of the iterative method FWCIP “Fast Wave Concept Iterative Process” based on the wave concept. It calculates the electromagnetic parameters of a planar structure including a via-hole. This is modelled by the electromagnetic field that it creates in the structure. The validation of results found by this new formulation is ensured by comparison with those obtained by HFSS “high frequency structural simulator” software from Ansoft. They show that they are in good agreement.

Abstract:
Field experiment was conducted on a sandy soil during spring of 2005 in southern Tunisia for evaluating the effects of drip and furrow irrigation methods on soil salinity, yield and water use efficiency of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). For both irrigation methods, irrigations were scheduled when readily available water in the root zone (35% of the total available water) was depleted. Well water with an ECi of 3.25 dS m 1 was used for irrigation. Growth, yield, yield components, water supply and soil salinity were measured. Results show that higher soil salinity was maintained in the root zone with furrow than drip irrigation. The growth and yield of potato irrigated through furrows were significantly lower when compared with drip irrigation. Potato yield was increased 11% relative to that for furrow irrigated potato. Under drip irrigation, 20.8% of the irrigation water was saved in comparison with furrow irrigated potato; and irrigation water use efficiency increased by 29% compared with that of furrow irrigation. Drip irrigation method provides significant advantage on yield and WUE, compared to furrow irrigation in potato production under experimental conditions. Therefore, the drip irrigation method is recommended to optimize the use of saline water in potato production under the arid mediterranean conditions of southern Tunisia.

Abstract:
Reaction of phenylpiperazine and nitric acid yields the new organicinorganic hybrid material of phenylpiperazinium (C10H16N2)(NO3)2.H2O, (I). To understand the interaction between components of this salt, single crystal structure and computational studies are performed and reported. X-ray diffraction analysis was employed for the structural characterization. Computational methods were exploited for ground state structure determination and HOMO-LUMO calculations were determined. Detailed studies on ground state structure determinations as well as Electrostatic Potential Surface maps have been estimated by applying second-order Møller- Plesset (MP2) perturbation theory.

Abstract:
This study presents an investigation on trajectory control of a robot using fuzzy control and adaptive fuzzy control. We considered initially fuzzy controller of Mamdani type then to equip the proposed control scheme with adaptive controller, we have replaced the fuzzy regulators of Mamdani type by those of Seguno type in order to project the latter in neural networks, thus determining suitable fuzzy control rules and membership functions. We have synthesized two adaptive fuzzy controllers; Neural-fuzzy controller and Neural-fuzzy controller by model of reference.
