    The United States healthcare spending was about $7,681 per resident and accounted for 16.2% of the nation's GDP in 2008 and rose to compromise about 18% of the nation's GDP by 2010. As healthcare sector continues to grow ...
  • Environmental impacts of healthcare services: delivery of x-ray services 

    Esmaeili, Mohammad Amin; Twomey, Janet M.; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram; Overcash, Michael; Jahromi, Ashkan S.; Thomas, Nicholas; Mcadam, Ashlee; Dominquez, Fernando (IEEE, 2011-05)
    THE healthcare sector of the U.S rose to compromise about 18% of the nation's GDP in 2010. In meeting patient needs healthcare organizations spend nearly $8.8 billion each year on energy. To achieve energy reduction, the ...
  • Estimating nonprocess energy from building energy consumption 

    Overcash, Michael; Bawaneh, Khaled; Twomey, Janet M. (Springer, 2013-02)
    From this research, an important technique for estimating the nonprocess energy (also known as overhead energy) in industrial and manufacturing buildings was examined. The building energy data for six industrial facilities ...
  • Evaluation of recycling efforts of aircraft companies in Wichita 

    Asmatulu, Eylem; Twomey, Janet M.; Overcash, Michael (Elsevier Science BV, 2013-11)
    The number of manufactured aircraft has been continuously increasing worldwide because of the high demand for airline transportation. During manufacturing, many advanced materials and devices are used to build various sizes ...
  • Hospital radiology department overhead energy estimation 

    Esmaeili, Mohammad Amin; Jahromi, Ashkan S.; Twomey, Janet M.; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram; Overcash, Michael; Dominquez, Fernando; Thomas, Nicholas; Mcadam, Ashlee (IEEE, 2011-05)
    The interest in the energy management is found in every sector of the economy. This is true of the commercial sector which includes the healthcare industry. The focus of this study is on estimating the overhead energy ...
  • Industrial facilities non-process energy 

    Bawaneh, Khaled; Overcash, Michael; Twomey, Janet M. (Taylor & Francis Inc, 2014-04-18)
    In this study, published information on non-process energy use, which includes lighting, heating, cooling, ventilation, humidity control, and particulate control, for industrial buildings has been analyzed and compiled and ...
  • Life cycle and nano-products: end-of-life assessment 

    Asmatulu, Eylem; Twomey, Janet M.; Overcash, Michael (Springer, 2012-03)
    Understanding environmental impacts of nanomaterials necessitates analyzing the life cycle profile. The initial emphasis of nanomaterial life cycle studies has been on the environmental and health effects of nanoproducts ...
  • Prognosis informed stochastic decision making framework for operation and maintenance of wind turbines 

    Tamilselvan, Prasanna; Wang, Yibin; Wang, Pingfeng; Twomey, Janet M. (ASME/ISCIE 2012 International Symposium on Flexible Automation, 2013)
