Designing, constructing, and testing a second-generation prototype mechanical hippotherapy horse.
The use of horses as a means of therapy has been documented for some time. To determine why this type of therapy works and to provide a means of expanding its accessibility, a mechanical horse has been developed. Data ...
The design of small propellers operating at low Reynolds numbers and associated experimental evaluation.
Small-scale Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) are becoming increasingly important in the field of intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. As the desire for higher payloads and longer flight times increases, so does ...
Faster k-means clustering.
The popular k-means algorithm is used to discover clusters in vector data automatically. We present three accelerated algorithms that compute exactly the same clusters much faster than the standard method. First, we redesign ...
Metamorphic programming is an effective tool for creating efficient and elegant solutions to many programming problems, at least once you get over the shock of seeing code that violates many of the accepted rules of good ...
The EVCF Software Package
This is the software described in the technical report “Event Driven Simulation without Loops or Conditionals” available from this archive. This package is part of the FHDL system and must be installed in your FHDL directory.
The Subgroups of S5 in Cycle Form
This technical report lists all subgroups of S5 in cycle form, using the integers 0-4.
High-density intraoperative brain monitoring during cardiac surgery.
Functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) is a prominent technique that allows assessment of functional brain activity by measuring hemodynamic responses. Most existing functional brain imaging methods are only capable ...
Design and validation of new testing apparatus for testing helical compression springs under combined axial, shear, torsion, and bending loads.
Helical compression springs are normally used to provide a linear force response to compressive displacement. However, compression springs can be used to provide lateral force and rotational torque responses to lateral and ...
The effect of roughness element thermal conductivity on turbulent convection.
Many flows of engineering interest occur over surfaces that exhibit roughness with thermal conductivities much lower than common metals and alloys. This is especially true of in-service gas turbine blades with surface ...
An investigation of observed Algorithmic Specified Complexity.
Two experiments were carried out to investigate how Algorithmic Specified Complexity (ASC) might serve as a tool, specifically in the area of classification AI, and how well the theory around it predicts the characteristics ...
