  • Allen, Erik C.; Rutledge, Gregory C. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-01)
    Previously, we described a coarse-graining method for creating local density-dependent implicit solvent (DDIS) potentials that reproduce the radial distribution function (RDF) and solute excess chemical potential across a ...
  • Yuan, Yixing; Whittle, Andrew (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2011-01)
    Numerical limit analyses have been used to evaluate the stability of the 17th Street Canal I-wall levee during Hurricane Katrina. The potential formation of a water-filled gap along the canal-side soil-wall interface at ...
  • Pina, Patricia Elena; Cummings, M. L.; Donmez, Birsen (Association for Computing Machinery, 2008-01)
    Previous research has identified broad metric classes for human-automation performance to facilitate metric selection, as well as understanding and comparison of research results. However, there is still lack of an objective ...

    SEXTANT is an extravehicular activity (EVA) mission planner tool developed in MATLAB, which computes the most efficient path between waypoints across a planetary surface. The traverse efficiency can be optimized around ...
  • Kaneva, Biliana K.; Torralba, Antonio; Freeman, William T. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-11)
    Image features are widely used in computer vision applications. They need to be robust to scene changes and image transformations. Designing and comparing feature descriptors requires the ability to evaluate their performance ...
  • Lerer, Adam; Ward, Molly; Amarasinghe, Saman P. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-12)
    Due to the rapid spread of mobile phones and coverage in the developing world, mobile phones are being increasingly used as a technology platform for developing-world applications including data collection. In order to ...
  • Han, Yehui; Cheung, Grace; Li, An; Sullivan, Charles R.; Perreault, David J. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-01)
    This paper investigates the loss characteristics of RF magnetic materials for power conversion applications in the 10 to 100 MHz range. A measurement method is proposed that provides a direct measurement of an inductor ...
  • Zavala-Perez, Miguel Angel; Herndon, S. C.; Wood, E. C.; Onasch, T. B.; Knighton, W. B.; Kolb, C. E.; Molina, Luisa Tan (European Geosciences Union / Copernicus, 2009-03)
    Mobile emissions represent a significant fraction of the total anthropogenic emissions burden in the Mexico City Metropolitan Area (MCMA) and, therefore, it is crucial to use top-down techniques informed by on-road exhaust ...
  • Leifgen, Matthias; Schröder, Tim; Gädeke, Friedemann; Riemann, Robert; Métillon, Valentin; Neu, Elke; Hepp, Christian; Arend, Carsten; Becher, Christoph; Lauritsen, Kristian; Benson, Oliver; Schroder, Tim (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2014-02)
    We demonstrate a quantum key distribution (QKD) testbed for room temperature single photon sources based on defect centres in diamond. A BB84 protocol over a short free-space transmission line is implemented. The performance ...
  • Deonandan, Indira; Balakrishnan, Hamsa (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2010-09)
    Aircraft taxiing on the surface contribute significantly to the fuel burn and emissions at airports. This paper is aimed at estimating the baseline fuel burn and emissions from taxi-out processes at airports, evaluating ...
  • Mueller, Tim; Hautier, Geoffroy; Jain, Anubhav; Ceder, Gerbrand (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-08)
    Cathode materials with structure similar to the mineral tavorite have shown promise for use in lithium-ion batteries, but this class of materials is relatively unexplored. We use high-throughput density-functional-theory ...
  • Memmott, Matthew; Buongiorno, Jacopo; Hejzlar, Pavel (American Nuclear Society, 2011-02)
    Two innovative fuel concepts, the internally and externally cooled annular fuel and the bottle-shaped fuel, were investigated with the goal of increasing the power density and reduce the pressure drop in the sodium-cooled ...
