  • Fire retardancy, thermal stability and mechanical properties of polymeric based nanocomposites 

    Ghazinezami, Ali (Wichita State University, 2013-12)
    Polymeric materials have a wide variety of applications in many manufacturing industries. However, because of the molecular structures and chemical compositions of polymeric materials, they have considerably low resistances ...
  • A first best toll pricing framework for variable demand traffic assignment problems 

    Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram; Hearn, Donald W. (Elsevier, 2005)
    In this paper, we present a toll pricing framework for a general variable demand traffic assignment problem with side constraints, where the demand between an origin destination pair is a function of the least total travel ...
  • The first stage in two-stage template matching 

    Li, Xiaobo; Dubes, Richard C. (IEEE, 1985-11)
    This paper formulates the problem encountered in the first stage of two-stage, binary template matching as a set of hypotheses to be tested, including a hypothesis of "no object." Two new statistics R and G are proposed, ...

  • Flexible autonomous robotic task scheduling using advanced RISC machines 

    Zaccagni, Zachary James (Wichita State University, 2008-08)
    This research presents two methods for a group of Garcia robots to collaboratively decide which task to attend to, and to move to their respective locations. One method allows for a needed flexibility and dynamic analysis ...
  • Flight environment of the propellers on commuter aircraft 

    Dorfling, Johann (Wichita State University, 2008-12)
    Data obtained from digital flight data recorders installed on a fleet of 27 Beech 1900Ds are used to assess the actual operational environment of propellers on commuter aircraft. The data consists of 910 complete flights ...
  • Flight loads monitoring of USFS aerial supervision modules 

    Kliment, Linda K.; Rokhsaz, Kamran; Menon, Alok; Nelson, John; Terning, Brett; Weinstein, Edward M. (American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics, Inc., 2014-01-17)
    The USFS has collected flight data on Beechcraft King Airs which are being used as Aerial Supervision Modules. Data from seven aircraft is presented. The missions are separated into four flight phases: climb, cruise, ...
  • 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 characteristics and wall shear stresses in bifurcated peripheral arteries 

    Gogineni, Aneesha (Wichita State University, 2015-12)
    Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is further complicated by co-morbidities like diabetes, hypertension and anemia. Previous studies on coronary and carotid arteries indicate that bifurcation at the arteries has an effect in ...
  • 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)
