  • 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 ...
  • A framework to minimize total energy consumption and total tardiness on a single machine 

    Mouzon, Gilles C.; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram (Wichita State University. Graduate School., 2008-04-25)
    A great amount of energy is wasted in industry by machines which stay idle due to underutilization. A way to avoid consuming the wasted energy is to incorporate energy consumption into consideration while making the ...
  • Frequency and time domain analysis of an aeroelastic wing multiple component structure 

    Chakravarthy, Animesh; Evans, Katie A.; Kuhn, Lisa M.; Walters, Jonathan B. (Taylor & Francis Group, 2015-09-02)
    A multiple component structure consisting of two Euler-Bernoulli beams connected to a rigid mass is used to model the heave dynamics of a wing micro air vehicle. In the time domain, the attainment of a C-0-semigroup in the ...
