      Atemplate-based modeling approach for system design: Theory and implementation 

      Stein, J. L.; Louca, Loucas S. (1996)
      Previous research has developed search algorithms for deducing Proper Models (minimum complexity models with physically meaningful parameters) of dynamic systems. It has also been proposed that these Proper Models can be ...

      Coding approaches to fault tolerance in linear dynamic systems 

      Hadjicostis, Christoforos N.; Verghese, G. C. (2005)
      This paper discusses fault tolerance in discrete-time dynamic systems, such as finite-state controllers or computer simulations, with focus on the use of coding techniques to efficiently provide fault tolerance to linear ...

      Fault-tolerant dynamic systems 

      Hadjicostis, Christoforos N.; Verghese, G. C. (2000)
      We use unreliable system replicas and unreliable voters to construct redundant dynamic systems that tolerate transient failures in their state transition and error correcting mechanisms. Using low density parity check ...

      First-passage study and stationary response analysis of a BWB hysteresis model using quasi-conservative stochastic averaging method 

      Noori, M.; Dimentberg, M.; Hou, Z.; Christodoulidou, R.; Alexandrou, Andreas N. (1995)
      The quasi-conservative stochastic averaging (QCSA) method is applied to a Bouc-Wen-Baber hysteretic system (BWB) under Gaussian white noise excitations. The stationary probability density of the system's response amplitude ...

      Systematic model decoupling through assessment of power-conserving constraints - An engine dynamics case study 

      Rideout, G.; Stein, J. L.; Louca, Loucas S. (American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), 2004)
      Simplified models for predicting engine mount forces have traditionally been developed based on the assumption that for a well-balanced low-speed engine, the reciprocating dynamics can be decoupled from the three-dimensional ...

      Target cascading in vehicle redesign: A class VI truck study 

      Kim, H. M.; Kokkolaras, M.; Louca, Loucas S.; Delagrammatikas, G. J.; Michelena, N. F.; Filipi, Z. S.; Papalambros, P. Y.; Stein, J. L.; Assanis, D. N. (2002)
      The analytical target cascading process is applied to the redesign of a U.S. class VI truck. Necessary simulation and analysis models for predicting vehicle dynamics, powertrain, and suspension behaviour are developed. ...

      TDM- vs. FDM- based data-item scheduling in wireless broadcast systems with user retrials 

      Vlajic, N.; Charalambous, Charalambos D.; Makrakis, D. (2003)
      In the previous research works on wireless data broadcast, time-division-multiplex (TDM) based data-item scheduling has been exclusively studied, while no mention or clear evidence against frequency-division-multiplex, ...

      Upper limb assessment of people with multiple sclerosis with the use of a haptic nine hole peg-board test 

      Xydas, E. G.; Louca, Loucas S. (Affiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus, CyprusCorrespondence Address: Xydas, E. G.Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of CyprusCyprus, 2009)
      In this work, a nine-hole peg-board test (NHPT) arrangement is implemented in a Virtual Environment with the use of a Haptic Interface that has the form of a small robotic arm. The Haptic NHPT is used as a mean for ...
