A factoring of a graph G = (V,E) is a collection of spanning subgraphs F1, F2, ?, Fk, known as factors into which the edge set E has been partitioned. A dominating set of a graph is a set of nodes such that every node in the graph is either...
The College of Engineering at the University of Central Florida (UCF) required a data set containing the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) graduates from 1970 on, to be updated each semester. The data set was created in 1984, through the use...
The need for temporal reasoning is found throughout the engineering disciplines. James Allen introduced a representation for temporal reasoning based upon the concept of intervals. This approach provides a rich set of temporal relations for...
This descriptive study investigated the perceived problem of human fatigue as an operational consideration within the U.S. air carrier industry and the status of fatigue as content within U.S. aviation education/training curricula. An instrument...
A binary tree coding scheme is a bijection mapping a set of binary trees to a set of integer tuples called codewords. One problem considered in the literature is that of listing the codewords for n-node binary trees, such that successive codewords...
A simulation based decision support system is developed for AT&T Microelectronics in Orlando. This sytem uses simulation modeling to capture the complex nature of semiconductor test operations. Simulation, however, is not a tool for optimizations...
This report explains the development of a telephone line multiplexer to be used with a computer based personal paging system. The large geographical area coverage made possible by computer processing results in many calls having to cross telephone...
Window functions have been extensively used for the design of SAW filters. The classical truncated cosine series functions, such as the Hamming and Blackmann functions, are only a few of an infinite set of such functions. The derivation of this...
A Transient Simulation program (TRNSYS) was used to formulate the simulation of a domestic hot water system. Solar percent utilization and collector efficiency was observed for different set temperatures and hot water demand. The effect of hot...
The boundary integral technique was implemented in a computer code for the general static analysis of three dimensional elastic solids. The was based on a formulation of the problem in which the governing boundary equation is developed from the...
A cogeneration system using a noncondensing steam turbine to simultaneously provide electricity and process steam to a citrus plant was modeled in order to assess the source energy savings and the economic implications with the employment of this...
One of the solutions to the world's industrial and economic recovery and survivability is "Flexible Automation," wherein vision is the key to its cost-effective flexibility. Vision gives the robot a measure of environmental intelligence. The...
A methodology is presented for evaluting the performance of database update schemes. The methodology uses the M/Hr/1 queueing model as a basis for this analysis and makes use of the history of how data is used in the database. Parameters have...
This report documents a Process Control Language. It was written to provide an easy-to-use, user-friendly language to control a manufacturing-type process. It is not assumed the user is proficient or even familiar with any computer languages. ...
Hypocyclic mechanisms are the basic building blocks in the design of many widely used mechanical systems such as gear differentials, computing devices and other useful instruments. This paper presents a unique variation to the conventional...
A desirable goal of military simulation training is to provide large scale or joint exercises to train personnel at higher echelons. To help meet this goal, many of the lower echelon combatants must consist of computer generated forces with some...
This research was designed to investigate whether there are any significant relationships between the individual's educational and professional backgrounds and the 1985 Florida Master Teacher Program. This study included information collected on...
The maintenance and supply system of the Atlantic Missile Range Communications Network (AMRCN) is modeled to determine the optimum level of men and parts which must be available at Cape Kennedy, the source of supply, in order to minimize the level...
This report is an analysis of the Model RT-2 Microhmmeter which is a portable apparatus using a pulse current power sourse in the measurement of load resistances in the microhm range. The need for accuractely measuring resistances in the microhm...
Any structural analysis which gives stresses and displacements for some predefined structure is governed by some physical domain of loading, geometry and boundary conditions. Let this domain be called the structures "problem space." In applying...
