      Morrison, Aimee (Routledge, 2018)
      This paper proposes we must actively work to craft a new media studies of, by, and for the internet, one that must seek to transform rather than simply disrupt both scholarship and the broader social landscape, or our ...
    • Off-normal solar optical property measurements using an integrating sphere 

      Collins, Michael R.; Wright, John L.; Kotey, Nathan Amon (Elsevier, 2012-01-01)
      Shading devices attached to windows can be used to control solar gain and hence reduce building peak load and annual energy consumption. The performance of a shading device in this regard is strongly dependent on its solar ...

      Liu, Juewen (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011-08-07)
      Hydrogels are crosslinked hydrophilic polymers that undergo swelling in water. The gel volume is affected by many environmental parameters including temperature, pH, ionic strength, and solvent composition. Therefore, these ...

    • On a 2-class polling model with reneging and ki -limited service 

      Granville, Kevin; Drekic, Steve (Springer, 2018-06-18)
      This paper analyzes a 2-class, single-server polling model operating under a ki-limited service discipline with class-dependent switchover times. Arrivals to each class are assumed to follow a Poisson process with phase-type ...
    • On a general mixed priority queue with server discretion 

      Fajardo, Val Andrei; Drekic, Steve (Taylor & Francis, 2016-10-01)
      We consider a single-server queueing system which attends to N priority classes that are classified into two distinct types: (i) urgent: classes which have preemptive resume priority over at least one lower priority class, ...
    • On Achieving High Survivability in Virtualized Data Centers 

      Rabbani, Md Golam; Zhani, Mohamed Faten; Boutaba, Raouf (Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers, 2014-01-01)
      As businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud to host their services, cloud providers are striving to offer guaranteed and highly-available resources. To achieve this goal, recent proposals have advocated to offer ...
    • On Eulerian orientations of even-degree hypercubes 

      Levit, Maxwell; Chandran, L. Sunil; Cheriyan, Joseph (Elsevier, 2018-09-01)
      It is well known that every Eulerian orientation of an Eulerian 2k-edge connected (undirected) graph is strongly k-edge connected. A long-standing goal in the area is to obtain analogous results for other types of connectivity, ...
    • On fixed points of self maps of the free ball 

      Shamovich, Eli (Elsevier, 2018-07-01)
      In this paper, we study the structure of the fixed point sets of noncommutative self maps of the free ball. We show that for such a map that fixes the origin the fixed point set on every level is the intersection of the ...
    • On nonequilibrium shrinkage of supercritical CO2 droplets in a water-carrier microflow 

      Qin, Ning; Wen, John Z.; Chen, Baixin; Ren, Carolyn L. (AIP Publishing, 2018-07-16)
      We report an experimental study on the hydrodynamic shrinkage of supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) microdroplets during a nonequilibrium process. After scCO(2 )microdroplets are generated by water shearing upon a ...
    • On The Complexity Of The Evaluation Of Transient Extensions Of Boolean Functions 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Li, Baiyu; Ye, Yuli (World Scientific Publishing, 2012-01-01)
      Transient algebra is a multi-valued algebra for hazard detection in gate circuits. Sequences of alternating 0's and 1's, called transients, represent signal values, and gates are modeled by extensions of boolean functions ...
    • On the measurement of relative powder-bed compaction density in powder-bed additive manufacturing processes 

      Ali, Usman; Mahmoodkhani, Yahya; Imani Shahabad, Shahriar; Esmaeilizadeh, Reza; Liravi, Farzad; Sheydaeian, Esmat; Huang, Ke Yin; Marzbanrad, Ehsan; Vlasea, Mihaela; Toyserkani, Ehsan (Elsevier, 2018-10-05)
      Experimental studies in the literature have identified the powder-bed compaction density as an important parameter, governing the quality of additively manufactured parts. For example, in laser powder-bed fusion (LPBF), ...
    • On the optimal CFL number of SSP methods for hyperbolic problems 

      Giuliani, Andrew; Krivodonova, Lilia (Elsevier, 2019-01-01)
      We show that the theory for strong stability preserving (SSP) time stepping methods employed with the method of lines-type discretizations of hyperbolic conservation laws may result in overly stringent time step restrictions. ...
