Kriging-Based Design For Robust High-Performance Control Systems, Laura Micheli, Simon Laflamme 2020 Catholic University of America

Kriging-Based Design For Robust High-Performance Control Systems, Laura Micheli, Simon Laflamme

Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Publications

High-performance control systems (HPCS) are sophisticated vibration-mitigation devices that include active, semiactive, and hybrid systems. HPCS leverage feedback mechanisms to dynamically adjust the damping force in response to motion, offering a good mitigation performance over a wide excitation bandwidth. These damping systems are attractive for multihazard mitigation of civil structures. However, the application of HPCS necessitates the design and integration of a closed-loop control system that can be susceptible to local failure or reduction in performance in the form of, for example, malfunctions of HPCS components, noisy measurements, wear, aging, and power unavailability. It follows that these sources of uncertainties ...

Formal Verification Of The Adversarial Robustness Property Of Deep Neural Networks Through Dimension Reduction Heuristics, Refutation-Based Abstraction, And Partitioning, Joshua Smith

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Neural networks are tools that are often used to perform functions such as object recognition in images, speech-to-text, and general data classification. Because neural networks have been successful at approximating these functions that are difficult to explicitly write, they are seeing increased usage in fields such as autonomous driving, airplane collision avoidance systems, and other safety-critical applications. Due to the risks involved with safety-critical systems, it is important to provide guarantees about the networks performance under certain conditions. As an example, it is critically important that self driving cars with neural network based vision systems correctly identify pedestrians 100% of ...


Development And Validation Of A Nonlinear Dynamic Model For Tuned Liquid Multiple Columns Dampers, Liang Cao, Yongqiang Gong, Filippo Ubertini, Hao Wu, An Chen, Simon Laflamme 2020 Lehigh University 81818app手机版下载

Development And Validation Of A Nonlinear Dynamic Model For Tuned Liquid Multiple Columns Dampers, Liang Cao, Yongqiang Gong, Filippo Ubertini, Hao Wu, An Chen, Simon Laflamme

Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering Publications

The tuned liquid column damper (TLCD), a passive damping device consisting of a large U-tube with oscillating liquid, has been shown to be effective at mitigating structural responses under natural hazards. Aside from their bandwidth-limited mitigation capabilities, a key limitation of TLCDs is in their large geometries that occupy large space often at prime locations. A solution is to implement multi-columned versions, termed tuned liquid multiple columns dampers (TLMCDs), which have the potential to be tuned to multiple frequencies and occupy less space by leveraging the multiple columns to allow fluid movement. However, mathematical models characterizing their dynamic behavior must ...

Hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection is one of the main causes of liver damage, which can also lead to chronic hepatitis B (CHB) infection. More than 240 million individuals worldwide are chronic carriers of HBV. Among individuals with CHB who are untreated, approximately 15% – 40% will progress to liver cirrhosis or cancer. The interactions between HBV and host immune response play significant roles in the progression of CHB. CHB can be generally divided into four different clinical phases: immune tolerance (IT), immune clearance, inactive carrier, and Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg)-negative reactivation phase (ENEG). Many studies showed that interleukins ...

Distributed Energy Resource Aggregation Using Customer-Owned Equipment: A Review Of Literature And Standards, Manasseh Obi, Tylor Slay, Robert B. Bass

Electrical and Computer Engineering Faculty Publications and Presentations

Large-scale deployment of renewable energy resources, both utility-scale and distributed, create reliability concerns for electrical power system operators. The weather-dependent, non-dispatchable nature of renewable resources decreases the ability of operators to match supply with demand. Concurrently, distributed energy resources, defined as small-scale loads, generation sources, and storage systems, are becoming ubiquitous within modern electrical systems. This literature review presents the grid services that utilities use to alleviate power systems reliability concerns, particularly those caused by renewable resources, and how aggregations of residential-scale distributed energy resources can be used to provide these services.

By aggregating distributed energy resources en masse to ...

Increasing Accuracy Of K-Nearest Neighbor Classifier For Text Classification, Falguni N. Patel

International Journal of Computer Science and Informatics

k - Nearest Neighbor Rule is a well-known technique for text classification. The reason behind this is its simplicity, effectiveness, easily modifiable. In this paper, we briefly discuss text classification, k-NN algorithm and analyse the sensitivity problem of k value. To overcome this problem, we introduced inverse cosine distance weighted voting function for text classification. Therefore, Accuracy of text classification is increased even if any large value for k is chosen, as compared to simple k Nearest Neighbor classifier. The proposed weighted function is proved as more effective when any application has large text dataset with some dominating categories, using experimental ...

Formal specification of UML models in OCL is essential to improve software quality. Owing to the use of OCL in precise model specification, its application has been looked in different perspectives such as early measurement of module complexity. Moreover, when UML class diagrams are complemented with OCL, the metrics collected from OCL specification can serve as an indicator of fault-prone components. In the proposed approach an empirical study has been conducted on five soft real time case study applications. In this paper, existing metrics which are applicable to OCL expression are validated using module complexity. Moreover, a new metrics suite ...

Dynamic Slicing Of Aspect-Oriented Uml Communication Diagram, Alina Mishra, Subhrakanta Panda, Dishant Munjal

International Journal of Computer Science and Informatics

Aspect-oriented Programming (AOP) is a recent programming paradigm that focuses on modular implementations of various crosscutting concerns. The typical features of AOP such as join-point, advice, introduction, aspects etc. make it difficult for applying slicing. Program slicing is a method to extort statements that are relevant to a particular variable. Program slicing, as initially defined by Weiser is based on static dataflow examination on the flow graph of the program. Program slicing has been applied in parallel processing, program debugging, program integration,program understanding , software testing and maintenance etc.In this paper, we proposed a technique for dynamic slicing of ...
