In this work, an innovative and more efficient actuation system to power the knee joint is proposed. The key and nonconventional elements of this alternative design are a flywheel and a micro infinitely variable transmission (IVT). This particular powertrain configuration permits to exploit efficiently the dynamics of human locomotion, which offers the possibility to recover energy. By means of simulations of level ground walking and running, it is here demonstrated how storing energy in the flywheel permits to reduce the energy consumption and to downsize the electric motor.",

    	abstract = "Teflon (polytetrafluoroethylene) surface has been modified with a single step oxygen-fed plasma process resulting in the formation of peculiar “sphere-on-cone” micro-scale relieves. Though presenting some irregularity and random distribution, surfaces with a steep variation of topography can be obtained by properly tuning plasma process parameters. We show that, though exhibiting similar superhydrophobic properties in terms of water contact angle, the ability to withstand vertically impacting water droplets falling at medium/high impacting speeds can be sensitively different. In particular, high repulsive properties characterize surfaces with denser and smaller relieves. In the other cases the occurrence of pinning events results in longer time-of-contact and a shorter time-of-flight of the drop. Interestingly, the impact pressure values at which pinning transitions have been observed are consistent with critical pressures for penetration calculated by modeling the surface as an array of spheres. When critical pressure is exceeded, and water penetration is expected, reversible or non reversible pinning can be explained on the basis of the wetting/de-wetting cycle within the sphere-on-cone's layer.",

The F-IVT is an innovative actuation system to power artificial knee joint with energy recovery capabilities. Its key and non-conventional elements are a flywheel that acts as a mechanical energy storage system, and an Infinitely Variable Transmission (IVT). The design of the F-IVT can be optimized for a certain walking condition, resulting in a heavy reduction of both the electric energy consumption and of the electric peak power. In this work, by means of simulations of level ground walking at different speeds, it is demonstrated that the F-IVT is still an advantageous actuator which permits to save energy consumption and to downsize the electric motor even when it does not work in nominal conditions.",

We show that for ran-domly rough surfaces, given the Young angle, Cassie states are robust when a threshold value of theWenzel roughness factor, rW, is exceeded. In particular, superhydrophobic nano-textured surfaces havebeen generated by self-masked plasma etching. In view of their random roughness, topography features,acquired by Atomic Force Microscopy, have been statistically analyzed in order to gain information onstatistical parameters such as power spectral density, fractal dimension and Wenzel roughness factor(rW), which has been used to assess Cassie state robustness. Results indicate that randomly rough sur-faces produced by plasma at high power or long treatment duration, which are also fractal self-affine,have a rWhigher than the theoretical threshold, thus for them a robust superhydrophobicity is predicted.In agreement with this, under dynamic wetting conditionson these surfaces the most pronounced super-hydrophobic character has been appreciated: they show the lowest contact angle hysteresis and resultin the sharpest bouncing when hit by drops at high impact velocity.",

We compare its performance with the single roller full-toroidal variator (SFTV) and the single roller. half-toroidal variator (SHTV). Modeling of these variators involves challenging tribological issues; the traction and efficiency. performances depend on tribological phenomena occurring at the interface between rollers and disks, where the lubricant. undergoes very severe elastohydrodynamic lubrication regimes. Interestingly, the DFTV shows an improvement of the mechanical. efficiency over a wide range of transmission ratios and in particular at the unit speed ratio as in such conditions in which the DFTV. allows for zero-spin, thus strongly enhancing its traction capabilities.The very highmechanical efficiency and traction performances. of the DFTV are exploited to investigate the performance of a flywheel-based Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS), where. the efficiency of the variator plays an important role in determining the overall energy recovery performance. The energy boost. capabilities and the round-trip efficiency are calculated for the three different variators considered in this study.The results suggest. that the energy recovery potential of the mechanical KERS can be improved with a proper choice of the variator.",
