1. A General Conformance Testing Framework for IEEE 11073 PHD's Communication Model
Topic: Software
Published: 5/31/2013
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, Linbin Yu, Yu Lei, David R Kuhn, Ram D Sriram, Kevin G Brady
Abstract: ISO/IEEE 11073 Personal Health Data (IEEE 11073 PHD) is a set of standards that addresses the interoperability of personal healthcare devices. As an important part of IEEE 11073 PHD, ISO/IEEE 1107-20601 optimized exchange protocol (IEEE 11073-20601) ...

2. A New Convexity Measurement for 3D Meshes
Topic: Software
Published: 6/16/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Zhouhui Lian
Abstract: This paper presents a novel convexity measurement for 3D meshes. The new convexity measure is calculated by minimizing the ratio of the summed area of valid regions in a mesh‰s six views, which are projected on faces of the bounding box whose edg ...

3. ACTS: A Combinatorial Test Generation Tool
Topic: Software
Published: 3/22/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: In this paper, we introduce a combinatorial test generation tool called Advanced Combinatorial Testing System (or ACTS). ACTS supports t-way combinatorial test generation with several advanced features such as mixed-strength test generation and c ...

4. An Efficient Algorithm for Constraint Handling in Combinatorial Test Generation
Topic: Software
Published: 3/18/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has been shown to be a very effective testing strategy. An important problem in combinatorial testing is dealing with constraints, i.e., restrictions that must be satisfied in order for a test to be valid. In this paper, we ...

5. An Empirical Comparison of Combinatorial and Random Testing
Topic: Software
Published: 4/4/2014
Authors: Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Some conflicting results have been reported on the comparison between t-way combinatorial testing and random testing. In this paper, we report a new study that applies t-way and random testing to the Siemens suite. In particular, we investigate the s ...

6. An evaluation of local shape descriptors for 3D shape retrieval
Topic: Software
Published: 9/26/2012
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Sarah Y. Tang
Abstract: As the usage of 3D models increases, so does the importance of developing accurate 3D shape retrieval algorithms. A common approach is to calculate a shape descriptor for each object, which can then be compared to determine two objects‰ similarity. H ...

7. Artificial Intelligence Tools for Failure Event Data Management and Probability Risk Analysis for Failure Prevention
Topic: Software
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 ...

8. Automated Peak Picking and Integration Algorithm for Mass Spectral Data
Topic: Software
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Anthony J Kearsley, William E Wallace III, Javier Bernal, Charles Martin Guttman

9. Ave Atque Vale
Topic: Software
Published: 11/1/2012
Author: Isabel M Beichl

10. Combinatorial (t-way) testing for software: an adaptation of design of experiments
Topic: Software
Published: 11/1/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Most modern instruments of measurements for science, engineering, and commerce have embedded software. Also software is required for data handling and mathematical computations. Therefore verification and validation of software used in metrology is i ...
