Effects of interatomic potentials on the determination of the minimum depth of cut in nanomachining
(Inderscience Enterprises Ltd., 2013-01)
The minimum depth of cut (MDC) is a major limiting factor on achievable accuracy in nanomachining, because the generated surface roughness is primarily attributed to the ploughing process when the uncut chip thickness ...
Solving the Combined Heat and Power Dispatch Problem: A Semi-definite Programming Approach
(Electric power component and system, 2018-08)
This article presents a new solution using the semi-definite programming approach to solve the combined heat and power economic dispatch problem. The proposed method involves reformulating the combined heat and power ...
Solving Multi-Objective Economic Dispatch Problem Via Semidefinite Programming
This paper presents a solution for multi-objective economic dispatch problem with transmission losses semidefinite programming (SDP) formulation. The vector objective is reduced to an equivalent scalar objective through ...

(Springer Link, 2010-01)
The objectives of the paper was to design a feedback model for congestion control in packet switched WAN and carry out the performance evaluation of the model. A feedback approach was generated by designing a feedback ...
Automatic recognition of oral vowels in tone language: Experiments with fuzzy logic and neural network models.
(Computing in Research and Development in Africa, 2011)
Automatic recognition of tone language speech is a complex problem in that it involves two parallel recognition tasks. A recognition system to accomplish this task must be able to simultaneously recognise tone and phone ...
Modelling User-Centered Attributes: The Web Search Engine as a Case
( Knowledge Organization, 2015-01-26)
This paper modeled user-centered attributes with which First and Second-order Measurement Models (I'SoMM) were proposed using factor analysis in a quantitative evaluative procedure. There was need to relate users needs as ...
