  • Keulen, C.J.; Yildiz, M.; Suleman, Afzal (Shock and Vibration, 2014)
    Lamb wave based structural health monitoring shows a lot of potential for damage detection of composite structures. However, currently there is no agreement upon optimal network arrangement or detection algorithm. The ...
  • Salkuyeh, Mostafa Asgharpoor; Hendessi, Faramarz; Gulliver, T Aaron (EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking, 2013-04-18)
    Vehicular ad hoc networks are an important new class of wireless networks with applications ranging from safety and crash avoidance to Internet access and multimedia distribution. In this article, an efficient method of ...
  • Khan, Usman; Valeo, Caterina; Chu, Agnes; He, Jianxun (MDPI, 2013)
    Bioretention cells are an urban stormwater management technology used to address both water quality and quantity concerns. A lack of region-specific design guidelines has limited the widespread implementation of bioretention ...
  • Froese, Thomas M. (CSCE 4th Construction Specialty Conference, 2013)
    Risk is a major factor in construction. Few of the information systems commonly used in construction address risk explicitly, yet risk is complex, and the analysis and management that requires deep analysis of all aspects ...
  • Ferreira Vargas, Taise; Ceolin Baía, Célia; Lemos da Silva Machado, Tatiana; Chang Dórea, Caetano; Rodrigues Bastos, Wanderley (Water, 2021)
    The concentration of chlorine in water declines as it reacts with various substances, causing decay of the residual free chlorine until its total consumption. In light of the typical characteristics of the water from ...
  • Haworth, Brandon; Berseth, Glen; Moon, Seonghyeon; Faloutsos, Petros; Kapadia, Mubbasir (MIG ’20: Motion, Interaction and Games, 2020)
    Many multi-agent navigation approaches make use of simplified representations such as a disk. These simplifications allow for fast simulation of thousands of agents but limit the simulation accuracy and fidelity. In this ...
  • Tanaka, Shigenori; Froese, Thomas M.; Kubota, Satoshi; Nakamura, Kenji; Monobe, Kantaro (CSCE International Construction Specialty Conference, 2015)
    Civil infrastructure drawing data are normally generated by computer-aided design (CAD) software in the design phase, and are also frequently needed during the construction and maintenance phases. An environment would be ...
  • Zeb, Jehan; Froese, Thomas M. (CSCE 3rd International / 9th Construction Specialty Conference, 2011)
    In the AEC/FM industry, partners must frequently exchange information to accomplish a wide range of collaborative tasks. While this exchange of information is typically manual or human-to-human communication, there is ...
  • Buckley, Heather L.; Hart-Cooper, William M.; Kim, Jong H.; Faulkner, David M.; Cheng, Luisa W.; Chan, Kathleen L.; Vulpe, Christopher D.; Orts, William J.; Amrose, Susan E.; Mulvihill, Martin J. (ACS Sustainable Chemistry & Engineering, 2017)
    Preservatives deter microbial growth, providing crucial functions of safety and durability in composite materials, formulated products, and food packaging. Concern for human health and the environmental impact of some ...
  • MacLean, Doug; Mukhopadhyaya, Phalguni; Korn, Juergen; Mooney, Stephen (Energy Procedia, 2017-03)
    Vacuum Insulation Panels (VIPs) have been used in a variety of insulation applications in the built-environment in Yukon, Canada, which is located North of 60° latitude. As a result of this experience in a cold climate, ...
  • Hesari, Sara Salem; Bornemann, Jens (Electronics, 2019)
    This paper proposes a new beam steering antenna system consisting of two variable reflection-type phase shifters, a 3 dB coupler, and a 90° phase transition. The entire structure is designed and fabricated on a single layer ...
  • Dechev, Nikolai; Cleghorn, William L.; Mills, James K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005-06)
    This paper presents guidelines for designing the grasping interface between passive, surface micromachined microgrippers and micro-parts used for a microassembly system. The microassembly system is based on a robotic ...
  • Nongpiur, R. C.; Shpak, D. J.; Antoniou, A, (IEEE, 2014-04-01)
    A new optimization method for the design of fullband and lowpass IIR digital differentiators is proposed. In the new method, the passband phase-response error is minimized under the constraint that the maximum passband ...
  • Nongpiur, Rajeev (IEEE, 2014-06)
    Broadband beamformers with small-size microphone arrays are known to be highly sensitive to microphone imperfections. A new method for the design of minimax broadband beamformers that are robust to microphone gain, phase, ...
  • Nongpiur, R. C. (Elsevier, 2014-09-01)
    A new method for the design of robust minimax far-field broadband beamformers with optimized microphone positions is proposed. The method is formulated as an iterative optimization problem where the maximum passband1 ...
  • Bergen, Stuart W. A.; Antoniou, Andreas (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2005)
    An efficient method for the design of nonrecursive digital filters using the ultraspherical window function is proposed. Economies in computation are achieved in two ways. First, through an efficient formulation of the ...
  • Chen, Yi; Adams, Michael David; Lu, Wu-Sheng (Hindawi, 2007)
    Two new optimization-based methods are proposed for the design of high-performance quincunx filter banks for the application of image coding. These new techniques are used to build linear-phase finite-length-impulse-response ...
  • Nongpiur, R. C.; Shpak, D. J.; Agathoklis, P. (IEEE, 2014-04)
    Removal of impulse noise from speech in the wavelet domain has been found to be very effective due to the multi-resolution property of the wavelet transform and the ease of removing the impulses in that domain. A critical ...
  • Pragalath, Haran; Seshathiri, Sankarasrinivasan; Rathod, Harsh; Esakki, Balasubramanian; Gupta, Rishi (Journal of Performance of Constructed Facilities, 2018)
    The safety and serviceability of civil infrastructures have to be ensured either as part of a periodic inspection program or immediately following a given hazardous event. The use of digital imaging techniques to identify ...
  • Valeo, Caterina; Gupta, Rishi (Water, 2018-01)
    Cell phone images of pervious pavement surfaces were used to explore relationships between surface infiltration rates (SIR) measured using the ASTM C1701 standard test and using a simple falling head test. A fiber-reinforced ...
