  • Dynamic web-based configuration changes in a supply chain 

    Whitman, Lawrence E.; Krishnan, Krishna K.; Subbiah, Nishant; Agarwal, Ramesh K. (2000-06)
    An optimized supply chain is a source of competitive advantage. Supply chain design consists of two phases: initial design and on-going design. There is currently much in the literature regarding initial supply chain ...
  • Dynamical adjustment of block replacement algorithms 

    Walterscheidt, U.; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 1998-03-08)
    Block replacement algorithms are an important component of any cache controller, specially for disk caches. In recent years, complex and sophisticated algorithms have been developed, that reduce the miss-rate of disk caches. ...
  • Dynamics and performance of tailless micro aerial vehicle with flexible articulated wings 

    Paranjape, Aditya A.; Chung, Soon-Jo; Hilton, Harry H.; Chakravarthy, Animesh (The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2012-05-05)
    The purpose of this paper is to analyze and discuss the performance and stability of a tailless micro aerial vehicle with flexible articulated wings. The dihedral angles can be varied symmetrically on both wings to control ...
  • Dynamics and safety assessment of a truck impact onto various types of roadside concrete barriers on curved roads 

    Parvatikar, Prasanna K. (Wichita State University, 2013-05)
    Every vehicle manufacturing company invests time and money in researching all the possible ways of eliminating the serious injury to the occupants. These efforts are concentrated on making the vehicle structure and interior ...
  • Dynamics of longitudinal wake vortices 

    Kliment, Linda K. (Wichita State University, 2009-07)
    In the present study, the mid-field vortex wake is investigated. For the most part, the results focus on the motion of a pair of co-rotating vortices prior to merger, both in and out of ground effect. However, in order to ...
  • Early entry program 

    Pendse, Ravi; Johnson, Everett L. (1994-03)
  • An easy case of sorting by reversals 

    Tran, N. (Mary Ann Liebert, 1998)
    We show that a special case of sorting by reversals can be performed in polynomial time, namely, when the number of breakpoints is twice the distance.
  • Economic analysis of electric energy storage 

    Poonpun, Piyasak (2006-05)
    This thesis presents a cost analysis of grid-connected electric energy storage. Various battery energy storage technologies are considered in the analysis. Life-cycle cost analysis is used. The results are presented in ...
  • Economic applications for energy storage 

    Hardy, Trevor David (Wichita State University, 2014-07)
    There are several specific applications that offer potential ways in which energy storage may be able to produce revenue and/or provide savings for system operators. The most obvious is simple energy arbitrage where low-cost ...
  • Economics of quality improvement in manufacturing processes based on attributes 

    Weheba, Gamal; Tola, Akale M.; Masud, Abu S.M. (2008)
    Traditional models of the cost of quality combine prevention and appraisal expenses and consider their coupled effect on failure costs. This approach conceals the real economic value of continuous process improvement and ...
