  • Chatzigeorgiou, Dimitrios; Youcef-Toumi, Kamal; Ben-Mansour, Rached (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-03)
    Leakage is the major factor for unaccounted losses in every pipe network around the world (oil, gas, or water). In most cases, the deleterious effects associated with the occurrence of leaks may present serious economical ...
  • Comfoltey, E. Nicholas; Shapiro, Michael; Sirigiri, Jagadishwar R.; Temkin, Richard J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We report on the design and cold test validation of an overmoded TWT capable of producing power in excess of 100 Watts in the W-band and above. The TWT operates in the TM31 mode of a rectangular cavity and has transverse ...
  • Xia, Cassandra T.; Maes, Patricia (Association for Computing Machinery, 2013-03)
    Fifty years ago, Doug Engelbart created a conceptual framework for augmenting human intellect in the context of problem-solving. We expand upon Engelbart's framework and use his concepts of process hierarchies and artifact ...
  • Gilbertson, Eric W.; Hover, Franz S.; Arellano, Jose; Freeman, Bryan (ASME International, 2011-06)
    Gas-lifted oil wells are susceptible to failure through malfunction of gas lift valve assemblies (GLV). One failure mode occurs when the GLV check valve fails and product passes into the well annulus, potentially reaching ...
  • Zheng, Lizhong; Huang, Shao-Lun; Blankenship, Yufei (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-08)
    In information theory, in order to maximize the total throughput, it is required that the codebook has an empirical distribution that maximizes the mutual information over the channel. In coding theory, however, most codes ...
  • Elbaggari, Khalil M.; Afridi, Khurram K.; Perreault, David J.; Santiago-Gonzalez, Juan Anton (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-02)
    Resonant rectifiers have important applications in very-high-frequency (VHF) power conversion systems, including dc-dc converters, wireless power transfer systems, and energy recovery circuits for radio-frequency systems. ...
  • Forghani Oozroody, Mojtaba; McNew, John M.; Hoehener, Daniel; Del Vecchio, Domitilla (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-11-13)
    This document contains the statements and proofs of the main theoretical results presented in the paper by the same authors with the title \Design of driver-assist system under probabilistic safety specifications near stop ...
  • Hassan, Gimba; Perreault, David J.; Keim, Thomas A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005-01)
    The push to introduce dual-voltage (42 V/14 V) automotive electrical systems necessitates power generation solutions capable of supplying power to multiple outputs. A number of approaches for implementing dual-voltage ...
  • Zheng, H.; Ooi, B. H.; Cho, Wonjoon; Dao, M. H.; Tkalich, P.; Patrikalakis, Nicholas M. (American Institute of Physics, 2010-05)
    Due to the highly non-linear and dynamical nature of oceanic phenomena, the predictive capability of various ocean models depends on the availability of operational data. A practical method to improve the accuracy of the ...
  • Sievers, Martin; Lienhard, John H. (Taylor & Francis, 2013-01)
    Flat-plate heat exchangers are examined for use as dehumidifiers in humidification–dehumidification (HDH) desalination systems. The temperature and humidity ratio differences that drive mass transfer are considerably higher ...
  • Vaucelle, Catherine Nicole; Bonanni, Leonardo Amerigo; Ishii, Hiroshi (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-04)
    Touch is fundamental to our emotional well-being. Medical science is starting to understand and develop touch-based therapies for autism spectrum, mood, anxiety and borderline disorders. Based on the most promising touch ...
  • Pejawar-Gaddy, Sharmila; Kovacs, James M.; Barouch, Dan H.; Chen, Bing; Irvine, Darrell J. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2014-07)
    Immunization strategies that elicit antibodies capable of neutralizing diverse virus strains will likely be an important part of a successful vaccine against HIV. However, strategies to promote robust humoral responses ...
  • Pejawar Gaddy, Sharmila; Kovacs, J.; Barouch, D.; Chen, B.; Irvine, Darrell J. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2012-09)
    Background: Immunization strategies that elicit antibodies capable of neutralizing diverse strains of the virus will likely be an important part of a successful vaccine against HIV. The envelope trimer is the only ...
  • Sinangil, Mahmut E.; Yip, Marcus; Qazi, Masood; Rithe, Rahul; Kwong, Joyce; Chandrakasan, Anantha P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-08)
    Increasing number of energy-limited applications continue to drive the demand for designing systems with high energy efficiency. This tutorial covers the main building blocks of a system implementation including digital ...
  • Demkowicz, Michael J.; Misra, A.; Zhang, X.; Hoagland, R. G.; Nastasi, M. (Cambridge University Press, 2009-01)
    The combination of high strength and high radiation damage tolerance in nanolaminate composites can be achieved when the individual layers in these composites are only a few nanometers thick and therefore these materials ...
  • Kimerling, Lionel C.; Hu, Juejun; Lin, Shiyun; Crozier, Kenneth (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    We design and numerically simulate a photonic crystal waveguide cavity with a nanoslot structure for single nanoparticle trapping. A 135times enhancement of optical gradient trapping force compared to plain waveguide ...
  • Birge, Jonathan R.; Kaertner, Franz X. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    The optimization of phase distortion spectral power density is proposed as an alternative to GDD minimization of ultrafast cavity mirrors. This criterion is shown to minimize the detuning of cavity resonances from a uniform comb.
  • Yin, Jie; Gleason, Karen K.; Yague, Jose Luis; Boyce, Mary Cunningham (2013-01)
    The formation of patterned surfaces is a common tool to engineer materials. The capability to design and reproduce detailed features is a key factor to fulfill requirements for functional surfaces. Generation of wrinkles ...
