Damage accumulation of bovine bone under variable amplitude loads.
Stress fractures, a painful injury, are caused by excessive fatigue in bone. This study into damage accumulation in bone sought to determine if the Palmgren-Miner rule (PMR), a well-known linear damage accumulation ...
Models for rested touchless gestural interaction.
Touchless mid-air gestural interaction has gained mainstream attention with the emergence of off-the-shelf commodity devices such as the Leap Motion and the Xbox Kinect. One of the issues with this form of interaction is ...
Bootstrapping Bipartite Graphs Consisting of Edges Based on Ontology Terms Occurring in Scientific Abstract
The Ontological Discovery Environment (ODE) provides an efficient structure for storage of gene and pheno- type relations. The relations can be represented by a bipartite graph, where the gene and phenotype items can be ...
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 ...
Non-isothermal non-Newtonian flow and interlayer adhesion in Large Area Additive Manufacturing polymer composite deposition.
Large Area Additive Manufacturing (LAAM) has seen substantial improvement in recent years due in large part to the addition of short carbon fiber reinforcement to the polymer feedstock. The addition of short carbon fibers ...
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 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 ...
Characterization of optically pumped interband cascade lasers.
Interband cascade laser (ICL) devices have been optically pumped and the results observed are presented here. The samples being used for this research were grown by molecular beam epitaxy at the Naval Research Laboratory. ...
