1. A Baseline for Assessing Biometrics Performance Robustness: A Case Study across Seven Iris Datasets
Published: 11/7/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, Michael D Garris, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We examine the robustness of algorithm performance over multiple datasets collected with different sensors. This study provide insight as to whether an algorithm performance derived from traditional controlled environment studies will robustly extrap ...

2. A Bayesian Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) Approach to Estimating Remaining Life of Aging Pressure Vessels and Piping
Published: 1/1/2013
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, William F Guthrie, James J Filliben, Nathanael A Heckert
Abstract: In this paper, we use a Bayesian quantitative nondestructive evaluation (QNDE) approach to estimating the remaining life of aging structures and components. Our approach depends on in-situ NDE measurements of detectable crack lengths and crack g ...

3. A Comparative Study of CMM Flat-Surface Inspection Plans
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 4897
Published: 7/1/1992
Authors: J Hsu, T Hsu, James J Filliben, Ted Hopp
Abstract: This document reports on the findings from a collaborative effort by J. P. Hsu of the University of Texas at El Paso, T. W. Hsu (also of the same affiliation), James J. Filliben of the Statistical Engineering Division of the National Institute of Sta ...

4. A Design-of-Experiments Approach to FEM Uncertainty Analysis for Optimizing Magnetic Resonance Imaging RF Coil Design
Published: 10/10/2014
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben, Li Ma, Karl F Stupic, Kathryn E Keenan, Stephen E Russek
Abstract: Using the RF module of COMSOL, we compute the magnetic flux density norm (BN) profiles for frequencies in the 76 to 100 MHz range, inside of a prototype birdcage coil, courtesy of Japan's National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), loaded wit ...

5. A Design-of-Experiments Plug-In for Estimating Uncertainties in Finite Element Simulations
Published: 5/18/2009
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Roland deWit, Pedro Vincente Marcal, James J Filliben, Nathanael A Heckert
Abstract: The objective of this paper is to introduce an economical and user-friendly technique for estimating a specific type of finite element simulation uncertainties, or, "error bars," for a class of mathematical models, of which no closed-form o ...

6. A Human Inspired Local Ratio-Based Algorithm for Edge Detection in Fluorescent Cell Images
Published: 11/25/2010
Authors: Adele P Peskin, Joe Chalfoun, Alden A Dima, John T Elliott, James J Filliben
Abstract: We have developed a new semi-automated method for segmenting images of biological cells seeded at low density on tissue culture substrates, which we use to improve the generation of reference data for the evaluation of automated segmentation algor ...

7. A Hurricane Damage Prediction Model for Residential Structures
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: A Cope, K Gurley, James J Filliben, Emil Simiu, J P Pinelli, C Subramanian, L. Zhang, S Hamid
Abstract: The focus of this paper is the development of a probabilistic model for the prediction of structural damage due to hurricane winds in the state of Florida. This is a necessary component to a model currently under development to predict annualized in ...

8. A New Approach to Finding a Risk-Informed Safety Factor for ,Fail-SafeŠ Pressure Vessel and Piping Design
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben, Pedro Vincente Marcal, Stephen W. Freiman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a new approach to finding a risk-informed safety factor for the "fail-safe" design of a high-consequence engineering system. The new approach is based on the assumption of a 99.99 % confidence level and a 99.9 ...

9. A New Protocol for Semi-Automatic Generation of Reference Data for High Resolution Biological Images
Published: 11/30/2008
Authors: Adele P Peskin, Joe Chalfoun, Alden A Dima, James J Filliben
Abstract: We compare manually segmented masks of cell images that are independently hand-selected by several different people, with a new semi-automated method for estimating reference data for images of cells with very sharp clear edges. By quantifying the la ...

10. A Risk-Uncertainty Formula Accounting for Uncertainties of Failure Probability and Consequence in a Nuclear Powerplant
Published: 7/20/2010
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Stephen R Gosselin, Pedro Vincente Marcal, James J Filliben, Nathanael A Heckert, Robert E Chapman
Abstract: This paper is a continuation of a recent ASME Conference paper entitled "Design of a Python-Based Plug-in for Bench-marking Probabilistic Fracture Mechanics Computer Codes with Failure Event Data" (PVP2009-77974). In that paper, which was co-authore ...
