  • Flight loads spectra of two business jets 

    Rokhsaz, Kamran; Kliment, Linda K.; Weinstein, Edward M. (American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., 2014-01-17)
    Operational flight loads have been analyzed from two business jets, a Global 5000 and a Global Express XRS. It is shown that due to the differing nature of their missions, both airframes were subjected to nearly the same ...
  • Flow downstream of partially blocked stented cardiac arteries 

    Gogineni, Aneesha; Ravigururajan, Tiruvadi S. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2012)
    Intravascular stents play a major role in restoring the patency in atherosclerotic coronary arteries. However restenosis occurs in an artery after certain period of time. In order to obtain the consequences of various ...
  • Flow through a partially blocked artery downstream of a stented region 

    Gogineni, Aneesha (Wichita State University, 2011-07)
    A numerical analysis of flow through a stenosed artery downstream of a stented region is presented. Three different Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved stents (Bx Velocity, NIR, and Multilink Zeta) are considered ...
  • Flow through coated coronary stented arteries: a review 

    Gogineni, Aneesha; Ravigururajan, Tiruvadi S. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers, 2012)
    This paper reviews the recent literature on the stent applications and their recent advancements due to some controversies. The paper consists of two parts flow modeling of stents and a comparison between normal and stenosed ...
  • Food vs. biofuel: an optimization approach to the spatio-temporal analysis of land-use competition and environmental impacts 

    Cobuloglu, Halil I.; Bueyuektahtakin, I. Esra (Elsevier Ltd., 2015-02-15)
    Biofuel production from food crops leads to debates about the increase in food prices and security of the food supply. On the other hand, biofuels derived from cellulosic (energy) crops offer positive environmental impacts. ...
  • Forecasting plant labor productivity with a time series model 

    Masud, Abu S.M. (Elsevier Ltd., 1985)
    Plant labor productivity index, defined as the ratio of the standard labor hours and actual labor hours, is an important factor in the determination of the future manpower needs at Cessna Aircraft Co. (Pawnee Division). ...

  • Fracture mechanics of sandwich structures 

    Denning, Shawn Patrick (Wichita State University, 2013-05)
    Over the past few decades both the demand for knowledge as well an increase in the application of composite materials has boomed. This has led to an intensive focus by the research community to gather information and ...
  • A Framework for a Fuzzy Sustainable Maintenance Strategy Selection Problem -- restricted access to full text 

    Nezami, Farnaz Ghazi (Wichita State University. Graduate School, 2011-05-04)
    Maintenance cost constitutes 15-60% of the total production cost. Choosing the right maintenance strategy might provide significant savings in lost production, additional power consumption and lifecycle costs. An optimum ...
  • A framework to minimise total energy consumption and total tardiness on a single machine 

    Mouzon, Gilles C.; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram (Taylor & Francis, 2008)
    A great amount of energy is wasted in industry by machines that remain idle due to underutilisation. A way to avoid wasting energy and thus reducing the carbon print of an industrial plant is to consider minimisation ...
