Article
Brownianlike kinematics of ball milling for particulate structural modeling
(2016)Ball milling motion has been previously studied through computationally expensive, offline experimental video processing and numerical simulations by the discrete element method. This research establishes a more efficient ...

Article
Distributed function calculation and consensus using linear iterative strategies
(2008)Given an arbitrary network of interconnected nodes, we develop and analyze a distributed strategy that enables a subset of the nodes to calculate any given function of the node values. Our scheme utilizes a linear iteration ...

Article
Faulttolerant computation in groups and semigroups: Applications to automata, dynamic systems and Petri nets
(2002)The traditional approach to faulttolerant computation has been via modular hardware redundancy. Although universal and simple, modular redundancy is inherently expensive and inefficient. By exploiting particular structural ...

Article
Ideal physical element representation from reduced bond graphs
(2002)Previous research has demonstrated that bond graphs are a natural and convenient representation to implement energybased metrics that evaluate the relative 'value' of energy elements in a dynamic system model. Bond graphs ...

Article
Influence of water model and nanotube rigidity on the density of water in carbon nanotubes
(2008)The density of water calculated through molecular dynamic simulations using different water models and rigid/flexible carbon nanotubes is studied. A previous equation, determined in an earlier work in order to correlate ...

Mechanics ScienceEnabled Nanoheater MultiLayer Materials Manufactured by Ball Milling
(Materials Research Society, 2017)This article reports investigation of the effects of highrate stochastic micromechanics on the produced particulate size distribution during ball milling of reactive bimetallic foils (nanoheaters), by experimental and ...

On the fixed point problem in the abstract rate distortion theory
(University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, Coordinated Science Laboratory and Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering, 2006)This paper introduces a general framework for dealing with the subject of rate distortion or source coding with fidelity criterion, in Polish spaces. The problem is addressed using a variational approach on the space of ...

Article
Systematic identification of decoupling in dynamic system models
(2007)This paper proposes a technique to quantitatively and systematically search for decoupling among elements of a dynamic system model, and to partition models in which decoupling is found. The method can validate simplifying ...
