Modeling distribution issues in the industrial gas business
This dissertation addresses some of the issues arising from the distribution of industrial gas. In the industrial gas business, the concept of vendor managed inventory (VMI) is practiced. Thus the supplier decides which ...
Declarative inconsistency handling in relational and semi-structured databases
In many novel database applications inconsistency becomes an important issue that cannot be addressed with simple techniques like data cleaning. For instance, data conflicts can arise during the integration of independent ...
A Portable Road
An augmented reality and life recording system is described in architecture, construction process, and implementation. The system is described in relationship to a proposed architecture of perception. The system's construction ...
Development and evaluation of a new high-sensitivity, region-of-interest, x-ray imaging system for neuro-interventional applications
Neurovascular image-guided interventional (IGI) procedures require very high resolution (3 to 10 lp/mm), large dynamic range, and real-time imaging capability for visualization and navigation of endovascular devices during ...
Safety in numbers and power in determining strategy evolution in the game of Chicken
Game theory has been used in computer simulations to model bargaining and conflict behavior. The game of Chicken, in particular, recognizes the need for a cooperative collusive strategy for the success of the competitors. ...
Investigation in to energy efficiency of an electrical generator with a superconductor element as a rotor
This dissertation investigated in to a new type of electrical generator where a rotating High Temperature Superconductor thin film disk, acts as a "magnetic flux shield" creating a rate of change of flux and hence inducing ...
Analysis of the NED and ECEF covariance propagation for the navigational extended Kalman filter
The Extended Kalman Filter (EKF) is the most widely used algorithm for the estimation of IMU bias and scale factor errors for GPS/INS navigation. The EKF is a suboptimal sequential state estimator for use with nonlinear ...
A reaction progress variable approach for LES of strongly radiating sooty flames
A reaction progress variable approach is developed for subgrid scale (SGS) modeling of non-premixed turbulent diffusion flames with soot. Two-phase state-relations are constructed using three reaction progress variables ...
Robust microbial fabrication of plant pharmaceuticals: Complexities and solutions
Abstract not available.
Extension of the nondimensional tire theory to general operating conditions
Advances in computing technology have led to an increase in the use and complexity of automotive vehicle simulations. The limiting factor in the accuracy and speed of these simulations is often the detail and complexity ...
