Design of independent suspension mechanism for a terrain vehicle with four wheels drive and four wheels steeering
Shpetim Lajqi, Stanislav Pehan, Naser Lajqi, Afrim Gjelaj, Jože Pšeničnik, Sašo Emin, 2013, original scientific article

Abstract: In this paper a terrain vehicle with four wheels drive and four wheels steer intended to use for recreational purpose is presented. The main purpose is to design the suspension mechanism that fulfills requirements about stability, safety and maneuverability. Nowadays, as well as in the past, the development of the suspension systems of the vehicle has shown greater interest by designers and manufacturers of the vehicles. Research is focused to do a comprehensive study of different available independent suspension system (MacPherson, double wishbone, multi-link) and hence forth develop a methodology to design the suspension system for a terrain vehicle. Few chosen suspension systems are analyzed into the very details in order to find out the optimal design of it. During development process of the suspension system should be considered design constraints and requirements provided in the checklist. Afterwards the simulation results for kinematics analyses of suspension mechanism are performed in Working Model 2D and MATLAB environments. Achieved results are discussed in detail in order to find the best solution that will fulfill pretentious requirement from developed suspension system. All these investigations and reviews related to the suspension system will be exploited in order to obtain the optimal suspension geometry to equip a terrain vehicle, with such system.

Automated and intelligent programming of cnc machine tools
Afrim Gjelaj, 2014, doctoral dissertation

Abstract: Nowadays, many scientists focus on increasing the level of automation, respectively flexibility in manufacturing systems. In addition, automated programming of CNC machine tools has reached a high level of machining operations. However, it is still impossible for a machine to manipulate completely in an autonomous way. Special attention in this doctoral thesis is focused on the automated programming of CNC machine tools regarding artificial intelligence. The purpose of automated programming is to improve quality and to fulfil the requirements of manufacturing industry and provide commercial solutions. This thesis also provides a description of artificial intelligence usage in order to solve optimal tool path-length and tool selection, as well as the preparation of planned technology. Firstly, the automated programming of CNC machine tools enjoys great success when applying artificial intelligence in regard to the machining processes. Choices of path length and tool selection are analysed in great detail in order to ascertain the optimal problems of tool path- length and tool selection. However, in order to achieve automated and intelligent CNC programming of machine tools, their flexibilities are of major importance. Automation today tends to improve and implement manufacturing flexibility at a strategic level. This means increasing the degree of flexibility whilst at the same time increasing the degree of automation regarding CNC machine tools. In addition to the above-mentioned investigated problems, the influences of cutting force (Fc), power cutting (Pc), tool life (T) and surface roughness (Ra) as functions of tool path- length are also analysed. Analytical and mathematical models are optimised using a multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA). MOGA enables optimisation by employing two or more equations simultaneously. Another problem for the automated and intelligent CNC programming of machine tools focuses on the application of Discrete Systems (DS). The discrete system in our work focuses on analysing cutting force (Fc) in regard to the turning operation.
