    • Analysis of orthogonal edge trimming of uni-directional composites: numerical, analytical, and experimental approach 

      Jahromi, Ashkan S. (Wichita State University, 2010-05)
      As the use of composites increases, more problems arise with processing and manufacturing of this type of material in order to make it a more durable and reliable for today’s applications. One of the most important problems ...
    • An analytical method for predicting damage zone in orthogonal machining of unidirectional composites 

      Jahromi, Ashkan S.; Bahr, Behnam; Krishnan, Krishna K. (SAGE Publications, 2014-11)
      The objective of this research was to study chip formation mechanisms in order to predict damage in the orthogonal machining of unidirectional polymer-matrix composites by experimentation and analysis. This study presents ...

      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 ...
    • Energy use in healthcare services: radiography procedures 

      Esmaeili, Mohammad Amin; Jahromi, Ashkan S.; Dominquez, Fernando; Thomas, Nicholas; Mcadam, Ashlee; Twomey, Janet M.; Overcash, Michael; Yildirim, Mehmet Bayram; Malzahn, Don E. (2011-02-17)
      In 2010 the U.S. healthcare sector rose to comprise 18% of the nation’s GDP. During that year $8.8 billion was on energy to meet patient needs. As the percent of GDP spent on healthcare rises over the next several years, ...
    • 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 ...
    • 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 ...
