21. Improving the Efficiency of Markov Chain Analysis of Complex Distributed Systems
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7744
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 12/20/2010
Author: Christopher E Dabrowski
Abstract: In large-scale distributed systems, the interactions of many independent components may lead to emergent global behaviors with unforeseen, often detrimental, outcomes. The increasing importance of distributed systems such as clouds and computing grid ...

22. Dystopia
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 11/1/2010
Author: Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: This is an editorial for Computing in Science & Engineering on the subject of undergraduate education.

23. Modeling of the Temperature Field in the Chip and in the Tool in High-speed Machining of a Carbon Steel: Effect of Pearlite to Austenite Phase Transition in AISI 1075
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 4/7/2010
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak, Russell Hugh McFadden
Abstract: A one-dimensional transient finite-difference model for the temperature distribution in orthogonal metal cutting, which was originally developed by Boothroyd, and then improved upon by Tlusty, is used to calculate the temperature field in the chip an ...

24. You Say You Want a Revolution

Report Number: 7671
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 2/25/2010
Author: Ronald F Boisvert
Abstract: This report summarizes the technical work of the Mathematical and Computational Sciences Division (MCSD) of NIST s Information Technology Laboratory. Part I (Overview) provides a high-level overview of the Division s activities, including highlight ...

26. Ephemera
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 1/11/2010
Author: Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: An editorial on the growing importance of soft errors in software.

27. Matching Observed Alpha Helix Lengths to Predicted Secondary Structure
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 11/1/2009
Authors: Brian Dale Cloteaux, Nadezhda Serova
Abstract: Because of the complexity in determining the 3D structure of a protein, the use of partial information determined from experimental techniques can greatly reduce the overall computational expense. We investigate the problem of matching experimentally ...

28. Artificial Intelligence Tools for Failure Event Data Management and Probability Risk Analysis for Failure Prevention
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 10/25/2009
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Pedro Vincente Marcal
Abstract: Over the last thirty years, much research has been done on the development of failure event databases and fatigue modeling of crack growth in pressure vessels and piping. According to a USNRC report (NUREG/CR6674, 2000), results of a fatigue crack g ...

29. Cut it out!
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 5/1/2009
Authors: Isabel M Beichl, Francis Sullivan
Abstract: This is a tutorial article on a probabilistic method for finding minimum cut sets of a connected graph.

30. Quantitative, Interactive Measurement of Tissue Engineering Scaffold Structure in an Immersive Visualization Environment
Topic: Scientific Computing
Published: 10/2/2006
Authors: John G Hagedorn, Joy P Dunkers, Adele P Peskin, John T. Kelso, Lori Henderson, Judith Ellen Terrill
Abstract: We describe a software system that enables the measurement and analysis of tissue engineering scaffold materials from three dimensional images. Essential to this work is the use of an immersive visualization (virtual reality) system that gives the re ...
