Experimental Exposure of Naive Alpacas to Different Genotypes of Bovine Viral Diarrhea Virus Isolated from Cattle and Alpacas
Recent outbreaks of bovine viral diarrhea virus (BVDV) have involved alpacas and evidence demonstrates that alpacas can contract and propagate the virus. The objective of this research was to compare and characterize ...
Reliability and Concurrent Validity of Three Self-Report Measures of Trauma Exposure
The DSM-IV-TR requires identification of a traumatic event in order for an individual to meet criteria for PTSD. There are currently many self-report measures designed to assess for exposure to traumatic events, but these ...
Stability Analysis of a Segmented Free-wing Concept for UAS Gust Alleviation in Adverse Environments
High altitude, long endurance (HALE) aircraft feature large wing spans and have very low wing loadings resulting in sensitivity to turbulence. While turbulence is usually quite low in the stratosphere where HALE aircraft ...
AE Simulator A Serial Production Line Simulator
Consider an unreliable serial line with capacitated buffers between machines. Operators are required to repair machines when they fail and machines are blocked when the buffers are full and are starved when the buffers are ...
The Chromatic Number of the Euclidean Plane
We discuss the chromatic number of the plane problem. We provide a detailed history of its origins, along with some of the recent progress.
A Brief Survey of Hyperspaces and a Construction of a Whitney Map
This paper is a brief survey of hyperspaces of topological spaces. In particular, the hyperspace of all nonempty compact subsets of a space and the hyperspace of all nonempty subcontinua of a space with the Vietoris topology. ...
Effects of Steroid and Prostaglandin Injections on Hybridization Success Between Female Channel Catfish and Male Blue Catfish
Hybrid catfish produced from female channel catfish, Ictalurus punctatus, and male blue catfish, I. furcatus, exhibit superior traits for commercial aquaculture when compared to those of the channel catfish. However, one ...
Thermal Field Mapping Technique for Friction Stir Process
Friction Stir Welding is a solid state “green” welding method developed by The Welding Institute (UK). An internal thermal mapping instrument has been developed which allows for symmetrical mapping of the thermal fields ...
Optimizing Military Tactical MANETs efficiently using PSO
A mobile ad-hoc network (MANET) is a self-configuring network of autonomous agents designed to continuously support users who change the topology of the network dynamically and independently. The dynamic mobility of user ...
Modeling Service Performance and Dynamic Worker Allocation Policies for Order Fulfillment Systems
In this dissertation, we propose several dynamic worker allocation policies based on the sojourn time distribution in due-date order fulfillment systems. To establish a sojourn-based policy, we must be able to compute ...
