Circuit Tolerance Analysis of a Broadband Pulse Transformer
https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154770&ref=Feed
The application implements three circuit tolerance analysis methods.
<br><br>
• For the DC analysis<br>
– a full factorial analysis (the approach allows both symmetric and asymmetric tolerances)<br>
– Monte-Carlo simulation, assuming normally distributed component parameters<br>
• For the AC analysis, the symbolic partial derivatives of the circuit equations are used for a sensitivity analysis, with magnitude and phase plots illustrating the frequency-dependent behavior.
<br><br>
The application also demonstrates how you can generate a customized table of results using Maple's programmatic report generation tools.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=154770/Broadband_pulse_transformer.png" alt="Circuit Tolerance Analysis of a Broadband Pulse Transformer" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>The application implements three circuit tolerance analysis methods.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154653&ref=Feed
You can use a discrete Fourier transform (DFT) to identify the amplitude of a sinusoidal signal. Given a signal with N samples and a sample rate of Fs, the frequency spacing of its DFT is Fs/N. An amplitude at a frequency that falls in a DFT bin can be accurately estimated.
<BR><BR>
But what if a signal frequency falls between DFT bins? Its energy will be shared between the adjacent bins, and its amplitude will not be accurately identified.
<BR><BR>
One possible solution to better amplitude estimation is zero padding the time domain signal. If you zero-pad the signal, the value of N increases, and the frequency spacing of the DFT decreases. For example, if you double the time-domain signal with zero-padding, the frequency spacing decreases by a factor of two.
<BR><BR>
This is not a magical way of increasing the sampling rate, or injecting more data. Zero-padding in the time domain is simply equivalent to sinc interpolation of the DFT.
<BR><BR>
In this application, we will
<UL>
<LI>generate a sinusoidal signal with three frequencies at three amplitudes (one frequency will fall in a DFT bin, but two won't)
<LI>use a DFT to estimate the signal amplitudes
<LI>zero-pad the original signal
<LI>use a DFT of the zero-padded signal to again estimate the amplitudes
</UL>
You will see that zero-padding the signal results in better amplitude estimation.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=154653/thumb.png" alt="Zero Padding a Signal to More Accurately Estimate Amplitudes from a DFT" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>You can use a discrete Fourier transform (DFT) to identify the amplitude of a sinusoidal signal.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=154647&ref=Feed
When a vehicle travels around a curve, a centripetal force is needed to keep the vehicle on the road. If the road is completely horizontal, this force is entirely provided by side friction (i.e. the friction of the tires on the road).
<BR><BR>
However, road curves are usually banked - the outer edge is higher than the inner edge. This uses the weight of the vehicle to help keep the vehicle on the road, and is called superelevation.
<BR><BR>
In this application, we derive an equation that describes the relationship between velocity, side friction, road radius and superelevation for a point-mass vehicle traveling around a bend. This relationship is then rearranged to give an explicit equation for the road radius.
<BR><BR>
This equation is then used to calculate the road radius required to maintain the trajectory of a vehicle as it travels around a bend. For a specific set of parameters, the calculated road radius matches the minimum road radius given in the AASHTO Green Book.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=154647/superelevation.png" alt="Minimum Road Radius for Highway Superelevation" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>When a vehicle travels around a curve, a centripetal force is needed to keep the vehicle on the road.
