    , Article Scientia Iranica ; Volume 19, Issue 5 , 2012 , Pages 1265-1278 ; 10263098 (ISSN) Aminzadeh, M ; Maleki, A ; Firoozabadi, B ; Afshin, H ; Sharif University of Technology
    In the present study, the motion of Newtonian and non-Newtonian liquid drops has been investigated experimentally. In order to investigate the effect of bulk fluid on drops, we have used water and air, as two fluids with different properties, and various industrial and biological applications. Image processing is utilized to analyze the images obtained by a high speed camera. The research has been separated into two parts. The first part has been devoted to the experiments in which air is the bulk fluid, and the second is related to the experiment carried out in water. The range of Reynolds number is, approximately, 50

    This paper investigates the finite-Time landing of a spacecraft on a celestial target subjected to disturbances and air drag forces. Based on nonsingular fast terminal sliding mode control, a novel guidance law is designed to accomplish the landing goal within a specified finite time while the upper bound of disturbances is assumed to be known. Finally, a numerical example of the spacecraft landing problem is simulated by applying the proposed scheme. The obtained results illustrate that the designed guidance law can achieve the landing goal in the specified finite time
