Peano compactifications and property metric spaces
(198011)Let (X,d) denote a locally connected, connected separable metric space. We say the X is Smetrizable provided there is a topologically equivalent metric ρ on X such that (X,ρ) has Property S, i.e. for any ϵ>0, X is the ... 
kspace function spaces
(198011)A study is made of the properties on X which characterize when Cπ(X) is a kspace, where Cπ(X) is the space of realvalued continuous functions on X having the topology of pointwise convergence. Other properties related ... 
Note on a role for entire functions of the classes and
(198111)We use the B and B* operators of Levin on the Classes P and P* and a comparison principle to prove a GaussLucas Theorem for differential operators. The connection with the determination of final sets for differential ... 
Influence of wall waviness on friction and pressure drop in channels
(198111)An attention has been given to investigate the flow behavior of anincompressible viscous fluid confined in horizontal wavy channels and set in motion due to the movement of the upper wall and the pressure differences. The ... 
Complete function spaces
(198311)A study is made of certain completeness properties of the space of allcontinuous realvalued functions on a space, where this function space has the compactopen topology. 
Fine topology on function spaces
(198611)This paper studies the topological properties of two kinds of fine topologies on the space C(X,Y) of all continuous functions from X into Y. 
Commutative rings with homomorphic power functions
(199211)A (commutative) ring R (with identity) is called mlinear (for an integer m≥2) if (a+b)m=am+bm for all a and b in R. The mlinear reduced rings are characterized, with special attention to the finite case. A structure ... 
Topologies between compact and uniform convergence on function spaces
(199311)This paper studies two topologies on the set of all continuous realvalued functionson a Tychonoff space which lie between the topologies of compact convergence and uniformconvergence. 
Derivation of Equations for Flexible Multibody Systems in Terms of QuasiCoordinates from the Extended Hamilton’s Principle
(199311)Early derivations of the equations of motion for single rigid bodies, single flexible bodies, and flexible multibody systems in terms of quasicoordinates have been carried out in two stages. The first consists of the use ... 
An Efficient Automatic Test Pattern Generator forStuckOpen Faults in CMOS Combinational Circuits
(199411)In this paper, we describe a highly efficient automatic test pattern generator for stuckopen (SOP) faults, calledSOPRANO, in CMOS combinational circuits. The key idea of SOPRANO is to convert a CMOS circuit into anequivalent ... 
BlockLevel Logic Extraction from CMOS VLSILayouts
(199411)This paper describes a Prolog based Block Extraction System (ProBES) which converts a transistor level descriptionof a CMOS circuit into a logic block level description. The operation of ProBES is conceptually similar to ... 
Parametrically Excited Nonlinear TwoDegreeofFreedom Systems with Repeated Natural Frequencies
(199511)The method of normal forms is used to study the nonlinear response of twodegreeoffreedom systems with repeated natural frequencies and cubic nonlinearity to a principal parametric excitation. The linear part of the ... 
Mapping Nonsquare and Unevenly Spaced 2D SLDV Data of an Aircraft Fuselage by Using Spatial DFTIDFT Techniques
(199611)The scanning laser Doppler vibrometry (SLDV) technique provides velocities of a structure at 2dimensional (2D) angularly evenly spaced (in the laser scanning sense) data points. This causes an unevenly spaced data point ... 
Effects of antiinflammatory drugs on fever and neutrophilia induced by Clostridium difficile toxin B
(199611)This study investigated the ability of Clostridium difficile toxin B, isolated from the VPI 10463 strain, to induce fever and neutrophilia in rats. Intravenous injection of toxin B (0.005–0.5 μg/kg) evoked a dosedependent ... 
Nonlinear Response of Cantilever Beams to Combination and Subcombination Resonances
(199811)The nonlinear planar response of cantilever metallic beams to combination parametric and external subcombination resonances is investigated, taking into account the effects of cubic geometric and inertia nonlinearities. ... 
Investigation of Subcombination Internal Resonances in Cantilever Beams
(199811)Activation of subcombination internal resonances in transversely excited cantilever beams is investigated. The effect of geometric and inertia nonlinearities, which are cubic in the governing equation of motion, is considered. ... 
Neural Network Identification and Control of a Parametrically Excited Structural Dynamic Model of an F15 Tail Section
(200011)We investigated the design of a neuralnetworkbased adaptive control system for a smart structural dynamic model of the twin tails of an F15 tail section. A neural network controller was developed and tested in computer ... 
Active Vibration Isolation Using an Induced Strain Actuator with Application to Automotive Seat Suspensions
(200111)Active vibration isolation of automotive seats requires actuators that achieve millimeterrange displacements and forces on the order of 300 N. Recent developments in piezoceramic actuator technology provide a means for ...
