    • IPMC-actuated robotic fish 

      Chen, Zheng; Bart-Smith, Hilary; Tan, Xiaobo (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2015-05-07)
      Excellent swimmers, such as tuna, rays, and goldfish, take advantage of their flexible fins, compliant bodies, and swimming bladders to achieve fast, highly maneuverable, and energy-efficient locomotion. Ionic polymer-metal ...
    • Progressive damage and failure prediction of interlaminar tensile specimen with initial fabrication induced defects 

      Cui, Xiaodong; Karuppiah, Anand Vijay; Pham, Dinh Chi; Lua, Jim Y.; Saathoff, Caleb; Seneviratne, Waruna P. (DEStech Publications Inc., 2018)
      An automatic solution process to evaluate the effects of fabrication induced defects in composite components is developed. The framework of this approach includes defects extraction from the X-ray computed tomography (CT) ...
    • Timing analysis of block replacement algorithms on disk caches 

      Rajamoni, R.; Bhagavathula, Ravi; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 2000)
      Cache memories are used to reduce the memory latency in systems. While instruction references of a CPU exhibit high temporal and spatial locality, disk references exhibit very minimal temporal and spatial locality. Owing ...
