11. Computation of Complex Airy Functions and Zeros using Asymptotics and Differential Equation
Topic: Software
Published: 12/1/2004
Authors: Bruce R Fabijonas, Daniel W Lozier, Frank William John Olver

12. Contact function, uniform-thickness shell volume, and convexity measure for 3D star-shaped random particles
Topic: Software
Published: 3/15/2013
Authors: Edward Joseph Garboczi, Jeffrey W Bullard
Abstract: Using a spherical harmonic series, the three-dimensional shape of star-shaped particles can be represented mathematically as readily as can a sphere, cube, or ellipsoid. In principle, any particle parameter, such as volume, surface area, moment of in ...

13. Cut it out!
Topic: Software
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.

14. Fast Sequential Importance Sampling to Estimate the Graph Reliability Polynomial
Topic: Software
Published: 11/8/2012
Authors: David G. Harris, Francis Sullivan, Isabel M Beichl
Abstract: The reliability polynomial of a graph measures the number of its connected subgraphs of various sizes. Algortihms based on sequential importance sampling (SIS) have been proposed to estimate a graph's reliahbility polynomial. We develop an improved ...

15. Fitting Weighted Total Least-Squares Planes and Parallel Planes to Support Tolerancing Standards
Topic: Software
Published: 10/19/2012
Authors: Craig M Shakarji, Vijay Srinivasan
Abstract: We present elegant algorithms for fitting a plane, two parallel planes (corresponding to a slot or a slab) or many parallel planes in a total (orthogonal) least-squares sense to coordinate data that is weighted. Each of these problems is reduced to a ...

16. Gauging the Repeatability of 3D Imaging Systems by Sphere Fitting
Topic: Software
Published: 9/30/2009
Authors: Marek Franaszek, Geraldine S Cheok, Kamel S Saidi
Abstract: Multiple scans of the same object acquired with 3D imaging system (e.g., laser scanner) in the same experimental conditions could provide valuable information about the instrument s performance (e.g., stability, existence of bias, measurement error). ...

17. Hybrid shape descriptor and meta similarity generation for non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval
Topic: Software
Published: 7/26/2013
Author: Afzal A Godil
Abstract: Non-rigid and partial 3D model retrieval are two significant and challenging research directions in the field of 3D model retrieval. Little work has been done in proposing a hybrid shape descriptor that works for both retrieval scenarios, let alone ...

18. Isolating Failure-Inducing Combinations in Combinatorial Testing using Test Augmentation and Classification
Topic: Software
Published: 4/21/2012
Authors: Kiran Shakya, Tao Xie, Nuo Li, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Combinatorial Testing (CT) is a systematic way of sampling input parameters of the software under test (SUT). A t-way combinatorial test set can exercise all behaviors of the SUT caused by interactions between t input parameters or less. Although com ...

19. Methodology and Calculator for High Precision Regression Fits of Pyranometer Angular Responsivities and the Associated Uncertainties
Topic: Software
Published: 6/23/2015
Author: Matthew T Boyd
Abstract: An easy to implement method for accurately utilizing pyranometer incidence angle dependent calibration factors, or responsivities (uV/W/m2), along with the associated uncertainties has been developed. This method uses algorithms for creating single p ...

20. OOF3D: An Image-Based Finite Element Solver for Materials Science
Topic: Software
Published: 3/28/2012
Authors: Valerie R. Coffman, Andrew Charles edmu Reid, Stephen A Langer, Gunay Dogan
Abstract: Recent advances in experimental techniques (micro CT scans, automated serial sectioning, electron back-scatter diffraction, synchrotron radiation x-rays) have made it possible to characterize the full, three dimensional structure of real materials. S ...
