Plumes from the acid waste dump in the New York Bight were visible in all nine cloud-free Coastal Zone Color Scanner images from April and May 1981. The CZCS subsurface radiance channels displayed consistent spectral characteristics, wh...

The objective of task assignment problem (TAP) is to minimize the sum of interprocessor communication and task processing costs for a distributed system which subjects to several resource constraints. We use a novel global harmony sear...

The interfacial shear strength in single-wall nanotube–polymer composites is calculated using a traditional force balance approach, modified for a hollow tube, and the effect of varying some of the model parameters is examined and dis...

We consider a new kind of straight and shifted plane partitions/Young tableaux – ones whose diagrams are no longer of partition shape, but rather Young diagrams with boxes erased from their upper right ends. We find formulas for the n...

This article argues that g can arise from the effect of shared genes influencing cognitive test performance. Further, the puzzling effect that intercorrelations between cognitive tests are higher at lower ability levels can be accounted...

A general finite element procedure for obtaining strain-energy release rates for crack growth in isotropic materials is presented. The procedure is applicable to two-dimensional finite element analyses and uses the virtual crack-closure...

A kind of high-contrast grating (HCG) reflector for beam focusing has been proposed. We design a planar grating structure with a parabolic surface and numerical simulations using a finite different time domain (FDTD) method to verify th...

The rapid development in digital acquisition technology in radiography has not been accompanied by information regarding optimum radiographic technique for use with newly developed systems. Three of the most common technologies for digi...

Data mining (DM) methodology has a tremendous contribution for researchers to extract the hidden knowledge and information which have been inherited in the data used by researchers. This study has proposed a new procedure, based on expa...

The effects of indoor climates on thermal perceptions and adaptive behaviour of office workers during a large field study in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, located in a hot-arid region of Western Australia, are discussed. Clothing insulation level...
