Modeling of flexible fiber motion and prediction of material properties.
This work employs the rod chain model of Wang et al. (2006) to study the motion of discrete flexible fibers. Results are presented for both individual fibers and a stochastic distribution of fibers to study the variations ...
The Super Symmetric Representations of S4 in GL3(2)
This report gives all conjugacy classes of the super symmetric groups HR3 and VR3
The Class 4 4x4 Faithful Representations of S4 over GF(2)
There are 9 conjugacy classes of faithful representations of S4 in the general linear group of 4x4 matrices over GF(2). This report lists the representations belonging to class 4.
Assessment of shaped film cooling holes at high density ratios for gas turbine cooling using S-PIV and PSP.
During film-hole cooling, relatively cold air is extracted from the compressor of a gas turbine engine and forced through the turbine airfoils in order to lower their surface temperatures. To investigate the effects of ...
A neural inspired grid cell aid for robot intertial navigation.
Accurate position information is needed for a robot's guidance and control systems. Therefore, the navigation system is foundational for a robot's interactions with the world. This thesis explores a biologically inspired ...
Implementation of a Multi-Agent System in Java Agent Development Framework for a large-scale fossil-fuel electrical power unit control.
With technology and a larger-than-ever population, the society demand for energy has achieved records in the last few years. Currently, large-scale fossil fuel power plants, ranging in the hundreds of MW’s, produce most ...
The Class 1 4x4 Faithful Representations of S4 over GF(2)
There are 9 conjugacy classes of faithful representations of S4 in the general linear group of 4x4 matrices over GF(2). This report lists the representations belonging to class 1.
Development and implementation of a multi-agent system for intelligent optimized power plant control.
As the demand for electric power grows and regulations on power plant operation become stricter, the size, and therefore complexity, of new power plant units is increasing while the intricacies of the multiple simultaneous ...
Algorithmic specified complexity.
Information theory is a well developed field, but does not capture the essence of what information is. Shannon Information captures something in its definition of improbability as information. But not all improbable ...
Robust and efficient methods for proton computed tomography.
Proton computed tomography (pCT) is a recent promising imaging modality with the goal of generating accurate 3D maps of relative stopping power (RSP) with respect to water. Since the early developments of this imaging ...
