      Claesen, S; Heart, G; Li, W; Bharath, A; Chandra, S; e.a. (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, 1995)
      The imminent balloting of the draft DICOM 3.0 module on ultrasound represents a major step forward in the progress of digital storage formats for echocardiography. In this paper, we discuss a software suite soon to be ...
    • Analysis of Slow Convergence Regions in Adaptive Systems 

      Nouwens, Oscar; Annaswamy, Anuradha; Lavretsky, Eugene (2015-10-07)
      We examine convergence properties of errors in a class of adaptive systems that corresponds to adaptive control of linear time-invariant plants with state variables accessible. We demonstrate the existence of a sticking ...
    • Applications of Finite Element Methods

    • Areas of contact and pressure distribution in bolted joints 

      Gould, Herbert Hirsch; Mikic, B. B. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Engineering Projects Laboratory, [1970], 1970)
      When two plates are bolted (or riveted) together these will be in contact in the immediate vicinity of the bolt heads and separated beyond it. The pressure distribution and size of the contact zone is of considerable ...
    • Boiling and condensation in a liquid-filled enclosure 

      Bar-Cohen Avram; Bergles A. E. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Heat Transfer Laboratory, [1971], 1971)

    • Bubble growth rates in boiling 

      Griffith, P. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Division of Industrial Cooperation, [1956], 1956)
      The conditions determining the growth rate of a bubble on a surface in boiling are considered and a mathematical model framed in the light of these conditions. The growth rate is then calculated for bubbles growing under ...
    • The bubbly-slug transition in a high velocity two phase flow 

      Griffith, P.; Snyder, George A. (Cambridge, Mass. : M.I.T. Division of Sponsored Research, [1964], 1964)
      A possible mechanism for the transition between bubbly and slug flow is proposed and tested in a simulated slug flow system. No sudden collapse of slug flow with increasing velocity is found and it is concluded that: a. ...
