3D catalytic regeneration and stress modeling of diesel particulate filters by ABAQUS FEM software
(2002)The design of reliable DPF systems has proved a complex and demanding task that is increasingly being assisted by modeling. 1D but also 2D (axisymmetric) modeling has already been applied in design optimization case ... 
Adjusting the parameters of metal oxide gapless surge arresters' equivalent circuits using the harmony search method
(2017)The appropriate circuit modeling of metal oxide gapless surge arresters is critical for insulation coordination studies. Metal oxide arresters present a dynamic behavior for fast front surges; namely, their residual voltage ... 
Algorithms for optimization of building design: A review
(2014)Building design is quite a complicated task with the design team trying to counterbalance various antagonistic parameters, which in turn are subject to various constraints. Due to this complexity, performance simulation ... 
Alloy Design Based on Computational Thermodynamics and Multiobjective Optimization: The Case of MediumMn Steels
(2017)A new alloy design methodology is presented for the identification of alloy compositions, which exhibit process windows (PWs) satisfying specific design objectives and optimized for overall performance. The methodology is ... 
Analytics and Blockchain for Data Integrity in the Pharmaceuticals Industry
(2022)The data quantity explosion that we witnessed during the last two decades has lead industrial organizations to exploit this sheer amount of data for tasks that previously would seem impossible. However, larger data volumes, ... 
An ANN approach on the optimization of the cutting parameters during CNC plasmaarc cutting
(2010)The objective of the present study is to develop an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) in order to predict the bevel angle (response variable) during CNC plasmaarc cutting of St37 mild steel plates. The four (4) input ... 
Application of building energy simulation in the sizing and design optimization of an office building and its HVAC equipment
(2011)The reduction of energy consumption in buildings is of central importance in the North America's and European Union's energy policy. Following the adoption of legislative measures, methodologies are developed and employed ... 
Application of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps to water demand prediction
(2015)This article is focused on the issue of learning of Fuzzy Cognitive Maps designed to model and predict time series. The multistep supervisedlearning basedongradient methods as well as populationbased learning, with ... 
Application of zonal pricing in Greece's electricity market
(2009)Greece's electricity market is divided in two zones, North and South, due to a generationconsumption system configuration that creates a significant transmission bottleneck from North to South. Clearly, a zonal pricing ... 
Auction mechanisms for network resource allocation
(2010)In the autonomic Internet of the future, auction mechanisms arise as key methods for realizing efficient resource allocation. The major asset of auctions is their obliviousness to node utilities, which renders them capable ... 
AVS video decoder on multicore systems: Optimizations and tradeoffs
(2011)Newer video compression standards provide high video quality and greater compression efficiency, compared to their predecessors. Their increased complexity can be outbalanced by leveraging all the levels of available ... 
A Bayesian methodology for crack identification in structures using strain measurements
(2010)A Bayesian system identification methodology is presented for estimating the crack location, size and orientation in a structure using strain measurements. The Bayesian statistical approach combines information from measured ... 
Bayesian optimal experimental design for parameter estimation and response predictions in complex dynamical systems
(2017)A Bayesian optimal experimental design (OED) framework is revisited and applied to a number of structural dynamics problems. The objective is to optimize the design of the experiment such that the most informative data are ... 
Bayesian optimal experimental design using asymptotic approximations
(2017)Bayesian optimal experimental design (OED) tools for model parameter estimation and response predictions in structural dynamics include sampling (Huan and Marzouk, J. Comput. Phys., 232:288–317, 2013) and asymptotic ... 
Bayesian uncertainty quantification of turbulence models based on highorder adjoint
(2015)The uncertainties in the parameters of turbulence models employed in computational fluid dynamics simulations are quantified using the Bayesian inference framework and analytical approximations. The posterior distribution ... 
The berth allocation problem with stochastic vessel handling times
(2013)In this paper, the berth allocation problem with stochastic vessel handling times is formulated as a biobjective problem. To solve the resulting problem, an evolutionary algorithmbased heuristic and a simulationbased ... 
Bin Packing Heuristics for the Multiple Workflow Scheduling Problem
(2021)In the multiple workflow scheduling problem a set of workflows has to be scheduled concurrently onto system's available resources. Workflows exhibit different characteristics e.g., topological structure, size and ... 
Black hole search and exploration in unoriented tori with synchronous scattered finite automata
(2012)We consider the problem of locating a black hole in a synchronous, anonymous, and unoriented torus network using mobile agents. A black hole is a harmful network node that destroys any agent visiting it without leaving any ...
