    Masud, Abu S.M.; Zheng, Xitong (Palgrave Macmillan, 1989)
    An interactive algorithm to solve multiple-objective non-linear programming (MONLP) problems is proposed. In each iteration of the proposed algorithm, the decision-maker is presented with a solution and a set of direction ...
  • An experimental validation of mathematical simulation of human thermoregulation 

    Konz, S.; Hwang, C.L.; Dhiman, J.; Masud, Abu S.M. (Elsevier, 1977)
    An experimental validation of Stolwijk's mathematical model of thermoregulation is presented. Although the model seems to be accepted widely, very little experimental data for validation exists in the open literature. ...
  • Anthropometry of south Indian industrial workmen 

    Fernandez, Jeffrey E.; Uppugonduri, Krishna G. (Taylor & Francis, 1992-11)
    This paper presents the results of an anthropometric survey conducted on South Indian male workers in the electronic industry. The data were collected as part of a project to modify work stations that utilized equipment ...
  • Assurance of system service level robustness in complex supply chain networks 

    Almaktoom, Abdulaziz T.; Krishnan, Krishna K.; Wang, Pingfeng; Alsobhi, Samir (© Springer, 2014-09)
