131 Whitty, Kevin J.A system for measuring bubble voidage and frequency around tubes immersed in a fluidized bed of particlesGas-solid fluidized beds are common in chemical processing and energy production industries. These types of reactors frequently have banks of tubes immersed within the bed to provide heating or cooling, and it is important that the fluid dynamics within these bundles is efficient and uniform. This p...2010

135 Seeley, DonnA tour of the wormOn the evening of November 2, 1988, a self-replicating program was released upon the Internet 1. This program (a worm) invaded VAX and Sun-3 computers running versions of Berkeley UNIX, and used their sources to attack still more computers2. Within the space of hours this program had spread aacross ...Computer worm1989
136 Gopalakrishnan, GaneshA transformational approach to asynchronous high-level synthesisAsynchronous high-level synthesis is aimed at transforming high level descriptions of algorithms into efficient asynchronous circuit implementations. This approach is attractive from the point of view of the flexibility it affords in performing high level program transformations on users' initial d...High level synthesis tool; SHILPA1993
137 Cohen, ElaineA triangulation-invariant method for anisotropic geodesic map computation on surface meshesThis paper addresses the problem of computing the geodesic distance map from a given set of source vertices to all other vertices on a surface mesh using an anisotropic distance metric. Formulating this problem as an equivalent control theoretic problem with Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman partial different...2012-01-01
138 Furse, Cynthia M.A tutorial on Stochastic FDTDThe Stochastic FDTD (S-FDTD) method provides a way to determine the mean and variance of the electric and magnetic fields in a model where the electrical properties (conductivity and permittivity) vary stochastically, from a single S-FDTD simulation. This method is a realistic and more efficient alt...2014-01-01
139 Mathews, V. JohnA unified approach to nonparametric spectrum estimation algorithmsAbstract-Different approaches to spectrum estimation can be broadly classified as parametric and nonparametric methods. In the parametric techniques, an underlying model is assumed in the formulation of the spectrum estimation problem and one estimates the parameters of the model. For nonparametric...1987
140 Sutherland, James Clayton; Kerstein, Alan R.A unified approach to the various formulations of the one-dimensional-turbulence modelThe One-Dimensional Turbulence (ODT) model has been successfully applied as a stand-alone model for predicting turbulence statistics in both nonreacting and reacting flows. There are several formulations of the model in the literature, and most of the variable-density formulations do not clearly dis...2010
141 Sobh, Tarek M.; Henderson, Thomas C.A unifying framework for tolerance analysis in sensing, design, and manufacturingIn this work we address the problem of tolerance representation and analysis across the domains of industrial inspection using sensed data, CAD design, and manufacturing. Instead of using geometric primitives in CAD models to define and represent tolerances, we propose the use of stronger methods t...Tolerance representation; Tolerance analysis; Industrial inspection; Sensed data; CAD design1994

144 Panangaden, PrakashAbstract interpretation and indeterminacyWe present a semantic theory that allows us to discuss the semantics of indeterminate operators in a dataflow network. The assumption is made that the language in which the indeterminate operators are written has a construct that allows for the testing of availability of data on input lines. We then...Semantics; Indeterminate operators1984
145 Lindstrom, Gary E.Abstract semantics for functional constraint programmingA denotational semantics is given for a lazy functional language with monotonic side-effects arising from the unification of singly-bound logical variables. The semantics is based on a Scott-style information system, which elegantly captures the notion of "constraint additin" inherent in unificati...Abstract semantics1989
