    PubMed

    Orlandi, Richard; Hopkins, Clair; Philpott, Carl; Rosenfeld, Richard M

    2017-03-01

    The Cochrane Corner is a section in the journal that highlights systematic reviews relevant to otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, with invited commentary to aid clinical decision making. This installment features a pair of related Cochrane Reviews on intranasal steroids for chronic rhinosinusitis, which identify low- to moderate-quality evidence for a beneficial effect on overall symptoms, nasal congestion, and rhinorrhea. There is no evidence, however, to suggest superiority of any particular steroid preparation or drug delivery system. The related expert commentary should help clinicians make the best treatment decisions based on the studies and outcomes identified in these Cochrane Reviews.

  13. Proposed Four Corners-Ambrosia-Pajarito 500 kV transmission project. Final environmental statement

    SciTech Connect

    Not Available

    1980-01-01

    The Public Service Company of New Mexico proposes to construct and operate a 500 kV alternating current (AC) transmission line in the northwestern portion of New Mexico. The proposed line will extend from the Four Corners Power Plant to Ambrosia Station to a proposed Pajarito Station west of Albuquerque, NM. The proposed line will be approximately 173 miles in length. Construction of the 500 kV transmission line will adversely impact soils, vegetation, visual resources, and possibly in an indirect manner, the cultural resources in the area. The adverse impacts may be made minimal by the practice of erosion protection measures, revegetation, and a sound cultural resource management plan. There will be no appreciable impacts, adverse or otherwise in regard to surface or subsurface water by the construction or operation of the proposed transmission line. No adverse effects may be anticipated in regard to communities or social services. Economic impacts in the area will be short-term and should prove beneficial for the duration of the project. Construction and operation of this line will be beneficial in providing needed additional bulk transmission capacity between the Four Corners Plant and Albuquerque and bulk transmission support to the local western New Mexico area.

    Ellyin, Ferdnand; Kujawski, Daniel; Craig, David F.

    1994-01-01

    The behaviour of small corner cracks, inclined or perpendicular to loading direction, is presented. There are two aspects to this investigation: initiation of small cracks and monitoring their subsequent growth. An initial pre-cracking procedure under cyclic compression is adopted to minimize the residual damage at the tip of the growing and self-arresting crack under cyclic compression. A final fatigue specimen, cut from the larger pre-cracked specimen, has two corner flaws. The opening load of corner flaw is monitored using a novel strain gauge approach. The behaviour of small corner cracks is described in terms of growth rate relative to the size of the crack and its shape.

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Mazzaferri, Javier; Ledesma, Silvia

    2008-04-01

    In this work we introduce a new approach for corner extraction. The method that allows the corner extraction with rotation invariance is composed by a spiral phase function and a binary amplitude. The designed function can be easily implemented as a filter for a Vander Lugt-like optical correlator. A final image obtained with the detector presents intensity peaks in each corner location. Numerical simulation has been performed on a set of synthetic scenes, modulated either in amplitude or phase. Results that show the very good performance of the method are shown.

  14. Solar-energy workshops held at Miami-Dade Public Libraries, 1981-1982. Final report

    SciTech Connect

    1982-01-01

    Over a two year period, the Miami-Dade Public Library System gave 12 free solar energy programs throughout Dade County in its various branches; Solar Water Heater Workshops, where registered participants actually took part in building or putting together a solar water heater. Kick-off programs were also given free-of-charge by a number of local solar companies, to inform the audience about solar energy in general and the solar workshops in particular. Average registered attendance at these workshops was twenty, not including the crowds of onlookers at the outdoor building sessions or the earlier kick-off programs, which often had an audience of sixty or more. A later phone check of ten workshop participants picket at random revealed four who had built or were building their own solar systems, three who were considering the purchase of -or had already bought - a domestic solar water heater, one who was reported to be no longer interested by his son, and two who could not be reached. One of the completed heaters has been donated to a local Girl Scout troop, where it is on permanent exhibit; another will be placed in a new library branch, with appropriate publicity about its source. Florida Power and Light, which formerly viewed our early workshops with suspicion, sent a speaker to our final program to announce financial assistance to those who wanted to buy a solar hot water heater.

    We describe a novel type of electromagnetic cloak designed to conceal an object in a corner, and demonstrate its excellent performance by employing direct numerical simulation. Furthermore, we study the angular dependence and the effect of loss on the invisibility performance and compare ideal and simplified cloaks. The proposed structure has homogeneous constitutive parameters, which greatly simplifies practical realization.

  19. Defining the Medical Library Association research agenda: methodology and final results from a consensus process

    PubMed Central

    Eldredge, Jonathan D.; Harris, Martha R.; Ascher, Marie T.

    2009-01-01

    Objective: Using a group consensus methodology, the research sought to generate a list of the twelve to fifteen most important and answerable research questions in health sciences librarianship as part of a broader effort to implement the new Medical Library Association (MLA) research policy. Methods: The delphi method was used. The committee distributed a brief survey to all estimated 827 MLA leaders and 237 MLA Research Section members, requesting they submit what they considered to be the most important and answerable research questions facing the profession. The submitted questions were then subjected to 2 rounds of voting to produce a short list of top-ranked questions. Results: The survey produced 62 questions from 54 MLA leaders and MLA Research Section members, who responded from an estimated potential population of 1,064 targeted colleagues. These questions were considered by the process participants to be the most important and answerable research questions facing the profession. Through 2 rounds of voting, these 62 questions were reduced to the final 12 highest priority questions. Conclusion: The modified delphi method accomplished its desired survey and consensus goals. Future survey and consensus processes will be revised to generate more initial questions and to distill a larger number of ranked prioritized research questions. PMID:19626143

  1. Contour integration with corners.

    PubMed

    Persike, Malte; Meinhardt, Günter

    2016-10-01

    Contour integration refers to the ability of the visual system to bind disjoint local elements into coherent global shapes. In cluttered images containing randomly oriented elements a contour becomes salient when its elements are coaligned with a smooth global trajectory, as described by the Gestalt law of good continuation. Abrupt changes of curvature strongly diminish contour salience. Here we show that by inserting local corner elements at points of angular discontinuity, a jagged contour becomes as salient as a straight one. We report results from detection experiments for contours with and without corner elements which indicate their psychophysical equivalence. This presents a challenge to the notion that contour integration mostly relies on local interactions between neurons tuned to single orientations, and suggests that a site where single orientations and more complex local features are combined constitutes the early basis of contour and 2D shape processing.

  2. Modeling interconnect corners under double patterning misalignment

    2016-03-01

    Publisher's Note: This paper, originally published on March 16th, was replaced with a corrected/revised version on March 28th. If you downloaded the original PDF but are unable to access the revision, please contact SPIE Digital Library Customer Service for assistance. Interconnect corners should accurately reflect the effect of misalingment in LELE double patterning process. Misalignment is usually considered separately from interconnect structure variations; this incurs too much pessimism and fails to reflect a large increase in total capacitance for asymmetric interconnect structure. We model interconnect corners by taking account of misalignment in conjunction with interconnect structure variations; we also characterize misalignment effect more accurately by handling metal pitch at both sides of a target metal independently. Identifying metal space at both sides of a target metal.

    Version 00 For use in applications the ENDF/B-VII.1 library has been processed into the form of temperature dependent cross sections at eight neutron reactor like temperatures, between 0 K and 2100 K, in steps of 300 K (the exception being 293.6 K, for exact room temperature at 20 Celsius). It has also been processed to five astrophysics like temperatures—1, 10, and 100 eV; and 1 and 10 keV. For reference purposes, 300 K is approximately 1/40 eV, so that 1 eV is approximately 12,000 K. At each temperature the cross sections are tabulated and linearly interpolable in energy. As distributed the original evaluated data includes cross sections represented in the form of a combination of resonance parameters and/or tabulated energy dependent cross sections, nominally at 0 K. For use in applications, this data has been processed using the 2012 version of the ENDF/B pre-processing codes PREPRO 2012 to produce temperature dependent, linearly interpolable in energy, tabulated cross sections, in the ENDF-6 format. The steps required and codes used to produce room temperature, linearly interpolable tabulated cross sections, in the ENDF-6 format, are described below; the name of each code in given in parenthesis; for details of each code see reference. Here are the steps, and PREPRO 2012 codes, used to process the data, in the order in which the codes were used. 1) Linearly interpolable, tabulated cross sections (LINEAR) 2) Including the resonance contribution (RECENT) 3) Doppler broaden all cross sections to temperature (SIGMA1) 4) Check data, define redundant cross sections by summation (FIXUP) 5) Update evaluation dictionary in MF/MT=1/451 (DICTIN) For the "cold" (0 K) data steps 1), 2) and 4), 5) were used (no Doppler broadening). For the data at other temperatures, after steps 1) and 2), the data was Doppler broadened to each temperature using step 3), and the results were then made consistent with the ENDF/B formats and conventions using steps 4) and 5), to produce the

  13. NA-42 TI Shared Software Component Library FY2011 Final Report

    SciTech Connect

    Knudson, Christa K.; Rutz, Frederick C.; Dorow, Kevin E.

    2011-07-21

    The NA-42 TI program initiated an effort in FY2010 to standardize its software development efforts with the long term goal of migrating toward a software management approach that will allow for the sharing and reuse of code developed within the TI program, improve integration, ensure a level of software documentation, and reduce development costs. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) has been tasked with two activities that support this mission. PNNL has been tasked with the identification, selection, and implementation of a Shared Software Component Library. The intent of the library is to provide a common repository that is accessible by all authorized NA-42 software development teams. The repository facilitates software reuse through a searchable and easy to use web based interface. As software is submitted to the repository, the component registration process captures meta-data and provides version control for compiled libraries, documentation, and source code. This meta-data is then available for retrieval and review as part of library search results. In FY2010, PNNL and staff from the Remote Sensing Laboratory (RSL) teamed up to develop a software application with the goal of replacing the aging Aerial Measuring System (AMS). The application under development includes an Advanced Visualization and Integration of Data (AVID) framework and associated AMS modules. Throughout development, PNNL and RSL have utilized a common AMS code repository for collaborative code development. The AMS repository is hosted by PNNL, is restricted to the project development team, is accessed via two different geographic locations and continues to be used. The knowledge gained from the collaboration and hosting of this repository in conjunction with PNNL software development and systems engineering capabilities were used in the selection of a package to be used in the implementation of the software component library on behalf of NA-42 TI. The second task managed by PNNL

    Ferrer, Gonzalo; Leon, Agustín; Wirth, Hans; Mena, Adolfo; Tuca, María José; Espinoza, Gonzalo

    2017-01-01

    Objective: Report the experience, after 1-year follow-up, of 30 patients who underwent anatomical knee reconstruction of posteromedial corner (PMC) injuries, using La Prade´s Technique. Methods: Retrospective cohort study of 30 consecutive patients with PMC injuries operated between November 2010 and May 2014 by the same surgical team. Inclusion criteria: patients with clinical presentation and images (stress radiographs and MRI) compatible with PMC injury, who maintained a grade III chronic instability in spite of at least 3 months of orthopedic treatment, who were reconstructed using La Prade’s anatomical technique, and completed at least 12 months of follow-up. Exclusion criteria: discordance between clinical and image studies, grade I or II medial instability, and surgery performed through a different technique. Data was collected by reviewing the electronic files and images. Functional scores (IKDC and Lysholm) were applied and registered in the preoperative evaluation, and then 6 and 12 months after surgery. Results: Thirty patients (28 men and 2 women) met the inclusion criteria. Mean age was 43 years (24-69). The vast majority (28 patients) had a high-energy mechanism of injury. Twenty patients were diagnosed in the acute setting, while 10 had a delayed diagnosis after poor results of concomitant ligament reconstructions. With the exception of 2 patients, who presented with isolated PMC injury, the majority had associated injuries as detailed: 11 cases had PMC + anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, 3 patients had PMC + posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury, 3 patients had PMC + meniscal tears, 9 patients had PMC + ACL + PCL injuries, and there were 2 cases of PMC + ACL + PCL + lateral collateral ligament injuries. Mean time for PMC reconstruction surgery was 5 months (range 2-32). Lysholm and IKDC scores were 18,2 (2-69) and 24,3 (9,2-52,9) respectively in the preoperative setting, improving to 76,7 (44-94) and 70,7 (36,8-95,4) after 1-year follow

    1986-01-01

    The Geometrical Theory of Diffraction (GTD), which supplements Geometric Optics (GO), and the Physical Theory of Diffraction (PTD), which supplements Physical Optics (PO), are used to predict the backscatter cross sections of dihedral corner reflectors which have right, obtuse, or acute included angles. These theories allow individual backscattering mechanisms of the dihedral corner reflectors to be identified and provide good agreement with experimental results in the azimuthal plane. The advantages and disadvantages of the geometrical and physical theories are discussed in terms of their accuracy, usefulness, and complexity. Numerous comparisons of analytical results with experimental data are presented. While physical optics alone is more accurate and more useful than geometrical optics alone, the combination of geometrical optics and geometrical diffraction seems to out perform physical optics and physical diffraction when compared with experimental data, especially for acute angle dihedral corner reflectors.

  19. a Novel and Fast Corner Detection Method for SAR Imagery

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Jiao, N.; Kang, W.; Xiang, Y.; You, H.

    2017-09-01

    Corners play an important role on image processing, while it is difficult to detect reliable and repeatable corners in SAR images due to the complex property of SAR sensors. In this paper, we propose a fast and novel corner detection method for SAR imagery. First, a local processing window is constructed for each point. We use the local mean of a 3 x 3 mask to represent a single point, which is weighted by a Gaussian template. Then the candidate point is compared with 16 surrounding points in the processing window. Considering the multiplicative property of speckle noise, the similarity measure between the center point and the surrounding points is calculated by the ratio of their local means. If there exist more than M continuous points are different from the center point, then the candidate point is labelled as a corner point. Finally, a selection strategy is implemented by ranking the corner score and employing the non-maxima suppression method. Extreme situations such as isolated bright points are also removed. Experimental results on both simulated and real-world SAR images show that the proposed detector has a high repeatability and a low localization error, compared with other state-of-the-art detectors.

  4. Inviscid instability of streamwise corner flow

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Balachandar, S.; Malik, M. R.

    1993-01-01

    Linear stability of the incompressible flow along a stream wise corner is studied by solving the two-dimensional eigenvalue problem governed by partial differential equations. It is found that this fully three-dimensional flow is subject to inviscid instability due to the inflectional nature of the stream wise velocity profile. The higher growth rates for the inviscid instability mode, which is symmetric about the corner bisector, as compared to the viscous Tollmien-Schlichting instability operative away from the corner is consistent with the experimental findings that the corner flow transitions to turbulence earlier than the two-dimensional Blasius flow away from the corner.

  13. Rapid Corner Detection Using FPGAs

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Morfopoulos, Arin C.; Metz, Brandon C.

    2010-01-01

    In order to perform precision landings for space missions, a control system must be accurate to within ten meters. Feature detection applied against images taken during descent and correlated against the provided base image is computationally expensive and requires tens of seconds of processing time to do just one image while the goal is to process multiple images per second. To solve this problem, this algorithm takes that processing load from the central processing unit (CPU) and gives it to a reconfigurable field programmable gate array (FPGA), which is able to compute data in parallel at very high clock speeds. The workload of the processor then becomes simpler; to read an image from a camera, it is transferred into the FPGA, and the results are read back from the FPGA. The Harris Corner Detector uses the determinant and trace to find a corner score, with each step of the computation occurring on independent clock cycles. Essentially, the image is converted into an x and y derivative map. Once three lines of pixel information have been queued up, valid pixel derivatives are clocked into the product and averaging phase of the pipeline. Each x and y derivative is squared against itself, as well as the product of the ix and iy derivative, and each value is stored in a WxN size buffer, where W represents the size of the integration window and N is the width of the image. In this particular case, a window size of 5 was chosen, and the image is 640 480. Over a WxN size window, an equidistance Gaussian is applied (to bring out the stronger corners), and then each value in the entire window is summed and stored. The required components of the equation are in place, and it is just a matter of taking the determinant and trace. It should be noted that the trace is being weighted by a constant k, a value that is found empirically to be within 0.04 to 0.15 (and in this implementation is 0.05). The constant k determines the number of corners available to be compared against

    The objectives of this grant proposal include (1) development of a chromosome microdissection and PCR-mediated microcloning technology, (2) application of this microtechnology to the construction of region-specific libraries for human genome analysis. During this grant period, the authors have successfully developed this microtechnology and have applied it to the construction of microdissection libraries for the following chromosome regions: a whole chromosome 21 (21E), 2 region-specific libraries for the long arm of chromosome 2, 2q35-q37 (2Q1) and 2q33-q35 (2Q2), and 4 region-specific libraries for the entire short arm of chromosome 2, 2p23-p25 (2P1), 2p21-p23 (2P2), 2p14-p16 (wP3) and 2p11-p13 (2P4). In addition, 20--40 unique sequence microclones have been isolated and characterized for genomic studies. These region-specific libraries and the single-copy microclones from the library have been used as valuable resources for (1) isolating microsatellite probes in linkage analysis to further refine the disease locus; (2) isolating corresponding clones with large inserts, e.g. YAC, BAC, P1, cosmid and phage, to facilitate construction of contigs for high resolution physical mapping; and (3) isolating region-specific cDNA clones for use as candidate genes. These libraries are being deposited in the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) for general distribution.

  17. Corner stores: the perspective of urban youth.

    2015-02-01

    We examined the perspectives of low-income, urban youth about the corner store experience to inform the development of corner store interventions. Focus groups were conducted to understand youth perceptions regarding their early shopping experiences, the process of store selection, reasons for shopping in a corner store, parental guidance about corner stores, and what their ideal, or "dream corner store" would look like. Thematic analysis was employed to identify themes using ATLAS.ti (version 6.1, 2010, ATLAS.ti GmbH) and Excel (version 2010, Microsoft Corp). Focus groups were conducted in nine kindergarten-through-grade 8 (K-8) public schools in low-income neighborhoods with 40 fourth- to sixth-graders with a mean age of 10.9±0.8 years. Youth report going to corner stores with family members at an early age. By second and third grades, a growing number of youth reported shopping unaccompanied by an older sibling or adult. Youth reported that the products sold in stores were the key reason they choose a specific store. A small number of youth said their parents offered guidance on their corner store purchases. When youth were asked what their dream corner store would look like, they mentioned wanting a combination of healthy and less-healthy foods. These data suggest that, among low-income, urban youth, corner store shopping starts at a very young age and that product, price, and location are key factors that affect corner store selection. The data also suggest that few parents offer guidance about corner store purchases, and youth are receptive to having healthier items in corner stores. Corner store intervention efforts should target young children and their parents/caregivers and aim to increase the availability of affordable, healthier products.

    Corner cutting algorithms are used in different fields and, in particular, play a relevant role in Computer Aided Geometric Design. Evaluation algorithms such as the de Casteljau algorithm for polynomials and the de Boor-Cox algorithm for B-splines are examples of corner cutting algorithms. Here backward and forward error analysis of corner cutting algorithms are performed. The running error is also analyzed and as a consequence the general algorithm is modified to include the computation of an error bound.

  19. Three Corner Sat Communications System

    2000-01-01

    Three Corner Satellite is a constellation of three nanosatellites designed and built by students. New Mexico State University has taken on the design of the communications system for this constellation. The system includes the forward link, return link, and the crosslink. Due to size, mass, power, and financial constraints, we must design a small, light, power efficient, and inexpensive communications system. This thesis presents the design of a radio system to accomplish the data transmission requirements in light of the system constraints. In addition to the hardware design, the operational commands needed by the satellite's on-board computer to control and communicate with the communications hardware will be presented. In order for the hardware to communicate with the ground stations, we will examine the link budgets derived from the radiated power of the transmitters, link distance, data modulation, and data rate for each link. The antenna design for the constellation is analyzed using software and testing the physical antennas on a model satellite. After the analysis and testing, a combination of different systems will meet and exceed the requirements and constraints of the Three Corner Satellite constellation.

  20. Corner-cutting mining assembly

    DOEpatents

    Bradley, J.A.

    1981-07-01

    This invention resulted from a contract with the United States Department of Energy and relates to a mining tool. More particularly, the invention relates to an assembly capable of drilling a hole having a square cross-sectional shape with radiused corners. In mining operations in which conventional auger-type drills are used to form a series of parallel, cylindrical holes in a coal seam, a large amount of coal remains in place in the seam because the shape of the holes leaves thick webs between the holes. A higher percentage of coal can be mined from a seam by a means capable of drilling holes having a substantially square cross section. It is an object of this invention to provide an improved mining apparatus by means of which the amount of coal recovered from a seam deposit can be increased. Another object of the invention is to provide a drilling assembly which cuts corners in a hole having a circular cross section. These objects and other advantages are attained by a preferred embodiment of the invention.

  1. Study on hologram mosaic algorithm based on Harris corners

    2016-01-01

    To solve the problem of the small field of the view caused by CCD in the process of the hologram record, the hologram mosaic algorithm based on the Harris corners is proposed. The Harris corners in multi-scale are extracted and the mismatching points are removed. The final homography is calculated by using the improved RANSAC algorithm based on L-M algorithm. Finally, the stitched hologram with high quality can be obtained based on the weighted average fusion algorithm. It can overcome the influence to the hologram that the incident angles of the object beam are not consistent. Two experiments carried out with different reconstructed distance demonstrate that the proposed algorithm can realize the measurement of the big object by using the hologram method. Furthermore, it has high accuracy and strong robustness.

  2. Adaptive algorithm for corner detecting based on the degree of sharpness of the contour

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    2011-04-01

    We propose an adaptive corner detector based on the degree of sharpness of the contour, which can detect the corners efficiently and accurately. First, we extract edges from an image using an edge detector, such as Canny, Sobel, etc. Second, we define a degree-of-sharpness variable and calculate its value for each point on the edge. Then we use an adaptive threshold of the degree of sharpness to find the initial corner candidates for each edge. Third, we propose a method of making a projection for an edge segment toward the edge's fitting line to remove salient points. Finally, if some neighboring corner candidates are detected in a support area, we offer an effective method to merge them into one point, and the final corners are reserved. The proposed detector is compared to a classical corner detector and two state-of-the-art methods on planar curves and gray-level images, respectively. The experimental results show that the proposed detector has high correctness in finding true corners. In addition, the algorithm is robust to the additive noise and can detect the circular contour well.

    Automation of image-based alignment of NIF high energy laser beams is providing the capability of executing multiple target shots per day. One important alignment is beam centration through the second and third harmonic generating crystals in the final optics assembly (FOA), which employs two retro-reflecting corner cubes as centering references for each beam. Beam-to-beam variations and systematic beam changes over time in the FOA corner cube images can lead to a reduction in accuracy as well as increased convergence durations for the template-based position detector. A systematic approach is described that maintains FOA corner cube templates and guarantees stable position estimation.

    The analysis of the backscatter cross section of a dihedral corner reflector, using Geometrical Theory of Diffraction (GTD) and Physical Theory of Diffraction (PTD), is completed in the azimuthal plane, and very good agreement with experimental results is obtained. The advantages and limitations of the GTD and PTD techniques are discussed specifically for radar cross section applications. The utilization of GTD and PTD in oblique incidence diffraction from conducting targets is discussed. Results for equivalent current off-axis diffraction from the flat rectangular plate are presented using the equivalent currents of Knott, Senior, and Michaeli. The rectangular subdivision technique of Sikta, and its extension by Sunatara, alleviate some of the limitations of the equivalent techniques. As yet, neither technique can be used in bistatic scattering or for multiple scattering of a complex target.

  7. Evolution of supersonic corner vortex in a hypersonic inlet/isolator model

    2016-12-01

    There are complex corner vortex flows in a rectangular hypersonic inlet/isolator. The corner vortex propagates downstream and interacts with the shocks and expansion waves in the isolator repeatedly. The supersonic corner vortex in a generic hypersonic inlet/isolator model is theoretically and numerically analyzed at a freestream Mach number of 4.92. The cross-flow topology of the corner vortex flow is found to obey Zhang's theory ["Analytical analysis of subsonic and supersonic vortex formation," Acta Aerodyn. Sin. 13, 259-264 (1995)] strictly, except for the short process with the vortex core situated in a subsonic flow which is surrounded by a supersonic flow. In general, the evolution history of the corner vortex under the influence of the background waves in the hypersonic inlet/isolator model can be classified into two types, namely, from the adverse pressure gradient region to the favorable pressure gradient region and the reversed one. For type 1, the corner vortex is a one-celled vortex with the cross-sectional streamlines spiraling inwards at first. Then the Hopf bifurcation occurs and the streamlines in the outer part of the limit cycle switch to spiraling outwards, yielding a two-celled vortex. The limit cycle shrinks gradually and finally vanishes with the streamlines of the entire corner vortex spiraling outwards. For type 2, the cross-sectional streamlines of the corner vortex spiral outwards first. Then a stable limit cycle is formed, yielding a two-celled vortex. The short-lived limit cycle forces the streamlines in the corner vortex to change the spiraling trends rapidly. Although it is found in this paper that there are some defects on the theoretical proof of the limit cycle, Zhang's theory is proven useful for the prediction and qualitative analysis of the complex corner vortex in a hypersonic inlet/isolator. In addition, three conservation laws inside the limit cycle are obtained.

  10. Chimera-free, high copy number YAC libraries and efficient methods of analysis. Final technical progress report

    SciTech Connect

    1995-10-01

    The first experiment involved a low chimera YAC library in recombination deficient host strains. To determine if the genetic background of the yeast host strain contributes to the formation of chimeric YACs the same YAC ligation mixture was introduced into three isogenic yeast hosts differing only in their recombination abilities. To prepare YACs, human genomic DNA was partially digested with EcoR1 and then ligated to YAC vector pCGS966 arms. DNA was size fractionated before and after ligation by preparative pulsed field gel electrophoresis (CHEF), selecting for fragments greater than 400 kb, and introduced into competent spheroplasts. CHEF gel Southern blots of resulting colony-purified YACs were probed with human DNA to determine if multiple YACs or YAC fragments were present in the same cell. The frequency of chimeric YACs was measured by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) of YACs to human prometaphase spreads. YACs that hybridized to more than one location were assumed to be chimeric. In the second experiment new YAC vectors featuring tags for capture of YACs and YAC inserts were constructed. Yeast Artificial Chromosomes (YACs) have been of tremendous value in the physical mapping of the human genome. Because they can carry very large inserts, YACs are likely not only to contain entire genes but also their control elements. However, the only mode of purification of YAC DNA from current commonly used YAC libraries such as the CEPH library is by pulsed field gel electrophoresis. This is an inefficient, time consuming process and due to the single copy nature of these YACs, often result in poor yields. The vector pCGS1000 was designed to test new efficient ways of YAC DNA purification.

  11. Finding corners in images by foveated search

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Arnow, Thomas L.; Bovik, Alan C.

    2006-01-01

    We develop a new approach to finding corners in images that combines foveated edge detection and curvature calculation with saccadic placement of foveal fixations. Each saccade moves the fovea to a location of high curvature combined with high edge gradient. Edges are located using a foveated Canny edge detector with spatial constant that increases with eccentricity. Next, we calculate a measure of local corner strength, based on a product of curvature and gradient. An inhibition factor based on previous visits to a region of the image prevents the system from repeatedly returning to the same locale. A long saccade is move thes fovea to previously unexplored areas of the image. Subsequent short saccades improve the accuracy of the location of the corner approximated by the long saccade. The system is tested on two natural scenes and the results compared against subjects observing the same test images through an eyetracker. Results show that the algorithm is a good locator of corners.

  12. Cornering law: the difficulty of negotiating corners with an unmanned ground vehicle.

    PubMed

    Helton, William S; Head, James; Blaschke, Benno A

    2014-03-01

    We investigated skill development and workload of pilots driving teleoperated unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) through different apertures and viewpoints using the cornering law. Due to technological and cost restraints, humans are still needed for tasks involving UGVs. Operators of teleoperated UGVs are likely to have less situation awareness and thus are more prone to getting stuck or damaged when negotiating apertures.To our knowledge, the operation of physical UGVs through corners has not been examined. Therefore, a better understanding of cornering a teleoperated UGVs is imperative. In Experiment 1, 20 novice participants repeatedly teleoperated a physical UGV using a third-person overhead view through apertures that varied in width. In Experiment 2, 18 additional novice participants completed a similar task but used a first-person view. Participants' performance increased (i.e., faster cornering times and less collisions) over sessions. The cornering law successfully modeled the effect of different aperture widths on participant performance for both viewing perspectives. In this study, we successfully modeled human performance of teleoperated UGVs using the cornering law. Analogous to Fitts' and steering law, we were able to successfully model and predict cornering performance based on a derived index of cornering difficulty. The cornering law could be used to aid in the development of prototype user interfaces and also to examine the effects of different teleoperation views (first person vs. third person).

    Sperm migration through the female tract is crucial to fertilization, but the role of the complex and confined structure of the fallopian tube in sperm guidance remains unknown. Here, by confocal imaging microchannels head-on, we distinguish corner- vs. wall- vs. bulk-swimming bull sperm in confined geometries. Corner-swimming dominates with local areal concentrations as high as 200-fold that of the bulk. The relative degree of corner-swimming is strongest in small channels, decreases with increasing channel size, and plateaus for channels above 200 μm. Corner-swimming remains predominant across the physiologically-relevant range of viscosity and pH. Together, boundary-following sperm account for over 95% of the sperm distribution in small rectangular channels, which is similar to the percentage of wall swimmers in circular channels of similar size. We also demonstrate that wall-swimming sperm travel closer to walls in smaller channels (~100 μm), where the opposite wall is within the hydrodynamic interaction length-scale. The corner accumulation effect is more than the superposition of the influence of two walls, and over 5-fold stronger than that of a single wall. These findings suggest that folds and corners are dominant in sperm migration in the narrow (sub-mm) lumen of the fallopian tube and microchannel-based sperm selection devices.

    2009-10-01

    Comer point is one of the most important feature points in computer vision and pattern recognition. In the paper, a novel corner detection algorithm is proposed. In the improved algorithm, firstly transform the image using the Contourlet transform. Then the corner candidates are selected using the SUSAN algorithm. Lastly, the real corners are selected according to both directional information and correlation of the corner candidates. Experiment results show that the proposed corner detector is more effective than the traditional SUSAN algorithm.

  16. The flow along an external corner revisited

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Denier, Jim; Jewell, Nathaniel

    2013-11-01

    We revisit the problem of the flow of an almost inviscid fluid along an external corner made from the junction of two quarter infinite plates joined at an angle 0 < α < π / 2 . The structure of the boundary layer which develops along the corner is explored using a computational approach based upon a spectral element discretisation of the steady two-dimensional boundary-layer equations. We pay particular attention to the case when the angle α is small, thus approximating the semi-infinte quarter plate problem considered by Stewartson (1961) and recently revisited by Duck & Hewitt (2012). Our results, which demonstrate a thickening of the boundary-layer near the sharp corner, will be discussed in the context of the asymptotic theory developed in the aforementioned papers.

    2014-01-01

    This paper presents a novel approach of finding corner features between retinal fundus images. Such images are relatively textureless and comprising uneven shades which render state-of-the-art approaches e.g., SIFT to be ineffective. Many of the detected features have low repeatability (<; 10%), especially when the viewing angle difference in the corresponding images is large. Our approach is based on the finding of blood vessels using a robust line fitting algorithm, and locating corner features based on the bends and intersections between the blood vessels. These corner features have proven to be superior to the state-of-the-art feature extraction methods (i.e. SIFT, SURF, Harris, Good Features To Track (GFTT) and FAST) with regard to repeatability and stability in our experiment. Overall in average, the approach has close to 10% more repeatable detected features than the second best in two corresponding retinal images in the experiment.

    1978-01-01

    An experimental investigation was conducted to visualize the flow field about external axial corners. The investigation was initiated to provide answers to questions about the inviscid flow pattern for continuing numerical investigations. Symmetrical and asymmetrical corner models were tested at a Reynolds number per meter of 60,700,000. Oil-flow and vapor-screen photographs were taken for both models at angle of attack and yaw. The paper presents the results of the investigation in the form of oil-flow photographs and the surrounding shock wave location obtained from the vapor screens.

  1. Mold Simulator Study on the Initial Solidification of Molten Steel Near the Corner of Continuous Casting Mold

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Lyu, Peisheng; Wang, Wanlin; Zhang, Haihui

    2017-02-01

    Corner cracks are one of the most widespread surface defects of continuous casting slabs, and they are especially severe for peritectic steels and low-alloy steels. Therefore, a clear understanding of molten steel initial solidification around mold corner would be of great importance for the inhibition of corner cracks. This paper has been conducted with the aim to elucidate this understanding, by using a novel mold simulator equipped with a right-angle copper mold. The responding temperatures and heat fluxes across the mold hot-face and corner were firstly calculated through a 2D-inverse heat conduction program mathematical model, and the results suggested that the cooling ability and the fluctuation of heat fluxes around the mold corner are stronger than those for mold hot-face. With the help of power spectral density analysis and fast Fourier transformation, the four characteristic signals of heat fluxes were discussed in this paper. Next, the relation between the thickness of solidified shell and solidification time was fitted with the solidification square root law; as a result, the average solidification factor bar{K} for the hot-face shell is 2.32 mm/s1/2, and it is 2.77 mm/s1/2 for the shell near-corner. For the same oscillation marks (OMs), it appeared that the OMs positions on the shell corner are lower than those on the shell hot-face along the casting direction, because the stronger shrinkage of shell at the corner allows the overflowing steel to penetrate deeper into the larger gap between the shell corner and mold, which is demonstrated through the heat transfer analysis and metallographic examination. Finally, the interrelation between shell profile, mold oscillation, variation rate of heat flux, high-frequency heat flux and high-frequency temperature was discussed for above two cases, and the results suggested that meniscus conditions (heat transfer and melt flow) around the mold corner are more unsteady.

  2. Excimer laser machining of corner cube structures

    Jolic, K. I.; Ghantasala, M. K.; Harvey, E. C.

    2004-03-01

    Fabrication of corner cube structures using excimer laser projection has been a challenge for many years due to lack of a suitable machining strategy. This paper presents a new process methodology developed for this purpose, which consists of varying the projection aperture during machining by applying relative motion to two overlapping masks. The effective projection aperture is the two-dimensional area defined by the intersection of the apertures of each mask. During machining the volume of material removed per laser pulse is defined by the etch rate and the effective projection aperture. Using this approach, arrays of corner cubes up to 200 µm in size and 80 µm in depth were laser machined in polycarbonate. Their geometries and surface roughness were characterized using optical and confocal microscopy. The effects of fluence and number of laser shots on the angle and surface roughness of the corner cube facets have been studied. A relatively low cost replication technique has been established by making an electroformed nickel shim using the laser machined corner cube structures in a polycarbonate substrate. Retroreflectance properties of these structures evaluated using ray tracing simulations showed the importance of having near 90° facet angles and low facet roughness for achieving the highest intensity retroreflected signal.

  9. ECG data compression by corner detection.

    PubMed

    Tai, S C

    1992-11-01

    An ECG sampled at a rate of 360, 500 samples s-1 or more produces a large amount of redundant data that are difficult to store and transmit. A process is therefore required to represent the signals with clinically acceptable fidelity and with the least code bits possible. In the paper, a real-time ECG data compressing algorithm, CORNER, is presented. CORNER is an efficient algorithm which locates significant samples and at the same time encodes the linear segments between them using linear interpolation. The samples selected include, but are not limited to, the samples that are significantly displaced from the encoded signal such that the allowed maximum error is limited to a constant epsilon which is specified by the users. The way in which CORNER computes the displacement of a sample from the encoded signal guarantees that the high activity regions are more accurately coded. The results are compared with those of the well known data compression algorithm, AZTEC, which is also a real-time algorithm. It is found that, under the same bit rate, a considerable improvement of the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and root mean square error (RMSerr) can be achieved by employing the proposed CORNER algorithm. An average value of SNR (RMSerr) of 27.0 dB (5.668) can be achieved even at an average bit rate of 0.79 bit sample-1 by employing CORNER, whereas the average value of SNR (RMSerr) achieved by AZTEC under the same bit rate is 16.60 dB (19.368).

  10. Choosing corners of rectangles for mapped meshing

    SciTech Connect

    Mitchell, S.A.

    1996-12-16

    Consider mapping a regular i x j quadrilateral mesh of a rectangle onto a surface. The quality of the mapped mesh of the surface depends heavily on which vertices of the surface correspond to corners of the rectangle. The authors problem is, given an n-sided surface, chose as corners four vertices such that the surface resembles a rectangle with corners at those vertices. Note that n could be quite large, and the length and width of the rectangle, i and j, are not prespecified. In general, there is either a goal number or a prescribed number of mesh edges for each bounding curve of the surface. The goals affect the quality of the mesh, and the prescribed edges may make finding a feasible set of corners difficult. The algorithm need only work for surfaces that are roughly rectangular, particular those without large reflex angles, as otherwise an unstructured meshing algorithm is used instead. The authors report on the theory and implementation of algorithms for this problem. They also given an overview of a solution to a related problem called interval assignment: given a complex of surfaces sharing curves, globally assign the number of mesh edges or intervals for each curve such that it is possible to mesh each surface according to its prescribed quadrilateral meshing algorithm, and assigned and user-prescribed boundary mesh edges and corners. They also note a practical, constructive technique that relies on interval assignment that can generate a quadrilateral mesh of a complex of surfaces such that a compatible hexahedral mesh of the enclosed volume exists.

  13. Optimization and Improvement of FOA Corner Cube Algorithm

    SciTech Connect

    McClay, W A; Awwal, A S; Burkhart, S C; Candy, J V

    2004-10-01

    Alignment of laser beams based on video images is a crucial task necessary to automate operation of the 192 beams at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). The final optics assembly (FOA) is the optical element that aligns the beam into the target chamber. This work presents an algorithm for determining the position of a corner cube alignment image in the final optics assembly. The improved algorithm was compared to the existing FOA algorithm on 900 noise-simulated images. While the existing FOA algorithm based on correlation with a synthetic template has a radial standard deviation of 1 pixel, the new algorithm based on classical matched filtering (CMF) and polynomial fit to the correlation peak improves the radial standard deviation performance to less than 0.3 pixels. In the new algorithm the templates are designed from real data stored during a year of actual operation.

    Automation of image-based alignment of NIF high energy laser beams is providing the capability of executing multiple target shots per day. One important alignment is beam centration through the second and third harmonic generating crystals in the final optics assembly (FOA), which employs two retro-reflecting corner cubes as centering references for each beam. Beam-to-beam variations and systematic beam changes over time in the FOA corner cube images can lead to a reduction in accuracy as well as increased convergence durations for the template-based position detector. A systematic approach is described that maintains FOA corner cube templates and guarantees stable positionmore » estimation.« less

  13. Polarization conversion cube corner retro-reflector

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Crabtree, Karlton

    This document presents the polarization conversion cube-corner retroreflector (PCCCR). The PCCCR is a cube-corner retroreflector which transforms the electric field as follows: the major axis is rotated by 90° and the handedness is reversed. Since the polarization properties of a CCR are dependent on the polarization properties of each surface, exploration of the space of Mueller matrices is organized by surface type. The Mueller matrix of CCR having each of several surface types is calculated, including the traditional hollow metal and solid glass CCR types. PCCCR only occur for non-isotropic surface types. Four particular surface polarization properties are found which produce PCCCR. Three examples of PCCCR are presented using sub-wavelength grating surfaces. Several other interesting CCR are presented, including a 45° polarization rotator.

  16. Adaptive Harris corner detection algorithm based on iterative threshold

    Wang, Zhicheng; Li, Rong; Shao, Zhihao; Ma, Mengxin; Liang, Jianhui; Liu, Weizhao; Wang, Jie; Liu, Yongli

    2017-05-01

    An adaptive Harris corner detection algorithm based on the iterative threshold is proposed for the problem that the corner detection algorithm must be given a proper threshold when the corner detection algorithm is extracted. In order to avoid the phenomenon of clustering and restrain the pseudo corner, this algorithm realizes the adaptive threshold selection by iteration instead of the threshold value of the Harris corner detection algorithm. Simulation results show that the proposed method achieves good results in terms of threshold setting and feature extraction.

  17. The dihedral corner reflector as a reference target

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Corona, P.; Ferrara, G.; Gennarelli, C.

    The radiation properties of a dihedral corner reflector are analyzed in detail in order to assess the effectiveness of such a device as a standard reference in experimental determinations of radar cross section. A short review of reference targets is presented, and the physical optics approach and the images method are used to develop a mathematical model for the dihedral corner. Results from a computer program implemented to evaluate the field backscattered from the corner and to compute patterns for various dihedral sizes are reported. It is concluded that the dihedral corner can be conveniently used as a reference target by scanning in a plane containing the corner wedge.

  19. Capillary Flow in an Interior Corner

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Weislogel, Mark Milton

    1996-01-01

    The design of fluids management processes in the low-gravity environment of space requires an accurate model and description of capillarity-controlled flow in containers of irregular geometry. Here we consider the capillary rise of a fluid along an interior corner of a container following a rapid reduction in gravity. The analytical portion of the work presents an asymptotic formulation in the limit of a slender fluid column, slight surface curvature along the corner, small inertia, and low gravity. New similarity solutions are found and a list of closed form expressions is provided for flow rate and column length. In particular, it is found that the flow is proportional to t(exp 1/2) for a constant height boundary condition, t(exp 2/5) for a spreading drop, and t(exp 3/5) for constant flow. In the experimental portion of the work, measurements from a 2.2s drop tower are reported. An extensive data set, collected over a previously unexplored range of flow parameters, includes estimates of repeatability and accuracy, the role of inertia and column slenderness, and the effects of corner angle, container geometry, and fluid properties. Comprehensive comparisons are made which illustrate the applicability of the analytic results to low-g fluid systems design.

  16. Cornering Gapless Quantum States via Their Torus Entanglement

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Witczak-Krempa, William; Hayward Sierens, Lauren E.; Melko, Roger G.

    2017-02-01

    The entanglement entropy (EE) has emerged as an important window into the structure of complex quantum states of matter. We analyze the universal part of the EE for gapless systems on tori in 2D and 3D, denoted by χ . Focusing on scale-invariant systems, we derive general nonperturbative properties for the shape dependence of χ and reveal surprising relations to the EE associated with corners in the entangling surface. We obtain closed-form expressions for χ in 2D and 3D within a model that arises in the study of conformal field theories (CFTs), and we use them to obtain Ansätze without fitting parameters for the 2D and 3D free boson CFTs. Our numerical lattice calculations show that the Ansätze are highly accurate. Finally, we discuss how the torus EE can act as a fingerprint of exotic states such as gapless quantum spin liquids, e.g., Kitaev's honeycomb model.

  17. Radar detection of moving objects around corners

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Sume, A.; Gustafsson, M.; Jänis, A.; Nilsson, S.; Rahm, J.; Örbom, A.

    2009-05-01

    Detection of moving objects around corners, with no direct line-of-sight to the objects, is demonstrated in experiments using a coherent test-range radar. A setting was built up on the test-range ground consisting of two perpendicular wall sections forming a corner, with an opposite wall, intended to mimic a street scenario on a reduced scale. Two different wall materials were used, viz. light concrete and metallic walls. The latter choice served as reference, with elimination of transmission through the walls, e.g. facilitating comparison with theoretical calculations. Standard radar reflectors were used as one kind of target objects, in horizontal, circular movement, produced by a turntable. A human formed a second target, both walking and at standstill with micro-Doppler movements of body parts. The radar signal was produced by frequency stepping of a gated CW (Continuous Wave) waveform over a bandwidth of 2 or 4 GHz, between 8.5 and 12.5 GHz. Standard Doppler signal processing has been applied, consisting of a double FFT. The first of these produced "range profiles", on which the second FFT was applied for specific range gates, which resulted in Doppler frequency spectra, used for the detection. The reference reflectors as well as the human could be detected in this scenario. The target detections were achieved both in the wave component having undergone specular reflection in the opposite wall (strongest) as well as the diffracted component around the corner. Time-frequency analysis using Short Time Fourier Transform technique brought out micro-Doppler components in the signature of a walking human. These experiments have been complemented with theoretical field calculations and separate reflection measurements of common building materials.

  19. Corners, Cusps, and Pearls in Running Drops

    SciTech Connect

    Podgorski, T.; Flesselles, J.-M.; Limat, L.

    2001-07-16

    Small drops sliding down a partially wetting substrate bifurcate between different shapes depending on their capillary number Ca . At low Ca , they are delimited by a rounded, smooth contact line. At intermediate values they develop a corner at the trailing edge, the angle of which evolves from flat to 60{sup o} with increasing velocity. Further up, they exhibit a cusped tail that emits smaller drops (''pearls''). These bifurcations may be qualitatively and quantitatively recovered by considering the dynamic contact angle along the contact line.

  20. Backscattering by loaded and unloaded dihedral corners

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Corona, Paolo; Ferrara, Giuseppe; Gennarelli, Claudio

    1987-10-01

    An accurate mathematical model for the backscattering from a loaded dihedral corner has been developed. Such a model employs a generalization of physical optics (PO) to loaded surfaces which takes into account the lighting of each face by the rays diffracted by the edge of the other one. The inclusion of the currents due to such diffracted fields in the PO current distribution has been found relevant in order to improve the accuracy of the solution. Moreover the solution is uniform with respect to the loading impedance; as it coincides with the previously obtained solution for the perfectly conducting case, when the loading impedance approaches zero.

  1. Improved corner detection by ultrasonic testing using phase analysis.

    PubMed

    Broberg, Patrik; Runnemalm, Anna; Sjödahl, Mikael

    2013-02-01

    In ultrasonic testing, corners are used for sensitivity calibration in the form of notches, for measuring the sound velocity in the material, and as known reference points during testing. A 90° corner will always reflect incoming waves in the opposite direction due to a double reflection and therefore give a strong echo. This article presents a method for separating the echo from a corner from other echoes and more accurately find the position of the corner. The method is based on analysing the phase of the reflected signal. The proposed method was tested on a steel calibration block and the width of the indication was reduced by up to 50% compared to the amplitude signal. This results in a more accurate positioning of the corner. Using the phase instead of the amplitude will also improve the reliability, since reflections other than from corners will disappear.

  3. Abundance of unconformities in Four Corners area

    SciTech Connect

    Owen, D.E. )

    1989-09-01

    An important consideration about unconformities is how much of geologic time is recorded in the stratigraphic record and how much is lacuna represented by unconformities Writers as early as Charles Darwin during 1859 argued that more of geologic time is represented by breaks than beds. In looking at the stratigraphy of most areas, the authors tend to be impressed with the thickness of the record but fail to appreciate the vast amount of time represented by no thickness at all at unconformities. In many (most ) areas, there is truly more gap than record. In the Four Corners area, including the Paradox and San Juan basins and the San Juan Mountains, approximately 41% of Phanerozoic geologic time is recorded in the strata, and approximately 59% is represented by the 17 known Phanerozoic unconformities. Less than 200 mi south of Four Corners in the Fence Lake, New Mexico area, they find that approximately 87% of Phanerozoic geologic time is unrecorded at only five unconformities. If they compare basins and uplifts that were active during deposition, they can devise a general rule of thumb: the maximum lacuna and minimum number of unconformities occur on uplifts, whereas the minimum lacuna occurs in the basin center; but the maximum number of unconformities generally occurs near the flanks of the basin.

  4. See around the corner using active imaging

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Steinvall, Ove; Elmqvist, Magnus; Larsson, Håkan

    2011-11-01

    This paper investigates the prospects of "seeing around the corner" using active imaging. A monostatic active imaging system offers interesting capabilities in the presence of glossy reflecting objects. Examples of such surfaces are windows in buildings and cars, calm water, signs and vehicle surfaces. During daylight it might well be possible to use mirrorlike reflection by the naked eye or a CCD camera for non-line of sight imaging. However the advantage with active imaging is that one controls the illumination. This will not only allow for low light and night utilization but also for use in cases where the sun or other interfering lights limit the non-line of sight imaging possibility. The range resolution obtained by time gating will reduce disturbing direct reflections and allow simultaneous view in several directions using range discrimination. Measurements and theoretical considerations in this report support the idea of using laser to "see around the corner". Examples of images and reflectivity measurements will be presented together with examples of potential system applications.

  8. Hypersonic turbulent expansion-corner flow with shock impingement

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Chung, Kung-Ming; Lu, Frank K.

    1992-01-01

    Mean and fluctuating surface pressure data were obtained in a Mach 8, turbulent, cold flow past an expansion corner subjected to shock impingement. The expansion corner of 2.5 or 4.25 deg was located at 0.77 m (30.25 in.) from the leading edge of a shape-edged flat plate while an external shock, generated by either a 2- or 4-deg sharp wedge, impinged at the corner, or at one boundary layer thickness ahead or behind the corner. The mean pressure distribution was strongly influenced by the mutual interaction between the shock and the expansion. For example, the upstream influence decreased when the shock impinged downstream of the corner. Also, the unsteadiness of the interactions was characterized by an intermittent region and a local rms pressure peak near the upstream influence line. The peak rms pressure fluctuations increased with a larger overall interaction strength. Shock impingement downstream of the corner resulted in lower peaks and also in a shorter region of reduced fluctuation levels. These features may be exploited in inlet design by impinging the cowl shock downstream of an expansion corner instead of at the corner. In addition, a limited Pitot pressure survey showed a thinning of the boundary layer downstream of the corner.

  9. Metal nanoparticles with sharp corners: Universal properties of plasmon resonances

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Sturman, B.; Podivilov, E.; Gorkunov, M.

    2013-03-01

    We predict the simultaneous occurrence of two fundamental phenomena for metal nanoparticles possessing sharp corners with variable curvature: First, the main dipolar plasmonic mode experiences a strong red shift with increasing corner curvature; for large values of the curvature, the resonant frequency is controlled by the apex angle of the corner. Second, the split-off plasmonic mode experiences a strong localization at the corners. Altogether, this paves the way for the tailoring of metal nanostructures providing a wavelength-selective excitation of localized plasmons and a strong near-field enhancement of linear and nonlinear optical phenomena.

    A SUSAN corner detection algorithm for a sequence of images is proposed in this paper, The correlation matching algorithm is treated for the coarse positioning of the detection area, after that, SUSAN corner detection is used to obtain interesting points of the target. The SUSAN corner detection has been improved. For the situation that the points of a small area are often detected as corner points incorrectly, the neighbor direction filter is applied to reduce the rate of mistakes. Experiment results show that the algorithm enhances the anti-noise performance, improve the accuracy of detection.

  16. Measuring the effect of rounding the corners of scattering structures

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Markowskei, Audrey J.; Smith, Paul D.

    2017-05-01

    In studying acoustic or electromagnetic wave diffraction, the choice of an appropriate canonical structure to model the dominant features of a scattering scenario can be very illuminating. A common approach used when dealing with domains with corners is to round the corners, producing a smooth surface, eliminating the singularities introduced by the corners. In order to quantify the effect of corner rounding, this paper examines the diffraction from cylindrical scatterers which possess corners, that is, points at which the normal changes discontinuously. We develop a numerical method for the scattering of a plane wave normally incident on such cylindrical structures with soft, hard, or impedance loaded boundary conditions. We then examine the difference between various test structures with corners and with the corners rounded to assess the impact on near- and far-field scattering, as a function of the radius of curvature in the vicinity of the rounded corner point. We then examine the nature of the differences in the far field between the cornered and rounded scatterers as well as the effect on the differences as the frequency of the plane wave increases and obtain precise quantitative estimates for the rate of convergence of the maximum difference between the far-field solutions as the radius of curvature of the rounded scatterer approaches zero.

  18. Corner wetting transition in the two-dimensional Ising model

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Lipowski, Adam

    1998-07-01

    We study the interfacial behavior of the two-dimensional Ising model at the corner of weakened bonds. Monte Carlo simulations results show that the interface is pinned to the corner at a lower temperature than a certain temperature Tcw at which it undergoes a corner wetting transition. The temperature Tcw is substantially lower than the temperature of the ordinary wetting transition with a line of weakened bonds. A solid-on-solid-like model is proposed, which provides a supplementary description of the corner wetting transition.

  19. Orthotropic deflection model for corner-supported plates with segmented in-plane actuators.

    The shape control of thin, flexible structures has been studied primarily for edge-supported thin plates. For applications involving reconfigurable apertures such as membrane optics and active RF surfaces, corner-supported configurations may prove more applicable. Corner-supported adaptive structures allow for parabolic geometries, greater flexibility, and larger achievable deflections when compared to edge-supported geometries under similar actuation conditions. Preliminary models have been developed for corner-supported thin plates actuated by isotropic piezoelectric actuators. However, typical piezoelectric materials are known to be orthotropic. This paper extends a previously-developed isotropic model for a corner-supported, thin, rectangular bimorph to a more general orthotropic model for a bimorph actuated by a two-dimensional array of segmented PVDF laminates. First, a model determining the deflected shape of an orthotropic laminate for a given distribution of voltages over the actuator array is derived. Second, symmetric actuation of a bimorph consisting of orthotropic material is simulated using orthogonally-oriented laminae. Finally, the results of the model are shown to agree well with layered-shell finite element simulations for simple and complex voltage distributions.

  20. A fast and flexible library-based thick-mask near-field calculation method

    Aerial image calculation is the basis of the current lithography simulation. As the critical dimension (CD) of the integrated circuits continuously shrinks, the thick mask near-field calculation has increasing influence on the accuracy and efficiency of the entire aerial image calculation process. This paper develops a flexible librarybased approach to significantly improve the efficiency of the thick mask near-field calculation compared to the rigorous modeling method, while leading to much higher accuracy than the Kirchhoff approximation method. Specifically, a set of typical features on the fullchip are selected to serve as the training data, whose near-fields are pre-calculated and saved in the library. Given an arbitrary test mask, we first decompose it into convex corners, concave corners and edges, afterwards match each patch to the training layouts based on nonparametric kernel regression. Subsequently, we use the matched near-fields in the library to replace the mask patches, and rapidly synthesize the near-field for the entire test mask. Finally, a data-fitting method is proposed to improve the accuracy of the synthesized near-field based on least square estimate (LSE). We use a pair of two-dimensional mask patterns to test our method. Simulations show that the proposed method can significantly speed up the current FDTD method, and effectively improve the accuracy of the Kirchhoff approximation method.

    1991-01-01

    A high-gain monolithic millimeter-wave antenna has been designed, fabricated, and tested at 222 GHz. The structure consists of a traveling-wave antenna integrated on a 1.2-micron dielectric membrane and suspended in a longitudinal cavity etched in a silicon wafer. A new traveling-wave antenna design yields a wideband input impedance and a low cross-polarization component in the E- and quasi-H-plane patterns. A directivity of 17.7 dB and a main-beam efficiency of 88.5 percent are calculated from the 222-GHz pattern measurements. The integrated corner-reflector antenna is well suited for millimeter- and submillimeter-wave imaging applications in large f-number systems.

    Vinokur, M.; Lombard, C. K.

    1983-01-01

    A simple noniterative algebraic procedure is presented for generating smooth computational meshes on a quadrilateral topology. Coordinate distribution and normal derivative are provided on all boundaries, one of which may include a slope discontinuity. The boundary conditions are sufficient to guarantee continuity of global meshes formed of joined patches generated by the procedure. The method extends to 3-D. The procedure involves a synthesis of prior techniques stretching functions, cubic blending functions, and transfinite interpolation - to which is added the functional form of the corner solution. The procedure introduces the concept of generalized blending, which is implemented as an automatic scaling of the boundary derivatives for effective interpolation. Some implications of the treatment at boundaries for techniques solving elliptic PDE's are discussed in an Appendix.

    2016-01-01

    Injuries to the posterolateral corner (PLC) comprise a significant portion of knee ligament injuries. A high index of suspicion is necessary when evaluating the injured knee to detect these sometimes occult injuries. Moreover, a thorough physical examination and a comprehensive review of radiographic studies are necessary to identify these injuries. In this sense, stress radiographs can help to objectively determine the extent of these lesions. Non-operative and operative treatment options have been reported depending on the extent of the injury. Complete PLC lesions rarely heal with non-operative treatment, and are therefore most often treated surgically. The purpose of this article was to review the anatomy and clinically relevant biomechanics, diagnosis algorithms, treatment and rehabilitation protocols for PLC injuries. PMID:27200384

  19. On Corner Frequencies, Attenuation and Low-Frequency Earthquakes

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Bostock, M. G.; Thomas, A.; Rubin, A. M.; Christensen, N. I.

    2016-12-01

    Characterization of earthquake sources is often performed by parametric modelling of particle displacement seismograms in the log-log spectral domain where the low-frequency, horizontal asymptote yields seismic moment and the intersection of low- and high-frequency asymptotes defines corner frequency, a measure of rupture duration from which source dimension and stress drop can be inferred. The latter definition of corner frequency, though practical and in widespread use, is less convenient for analytic purposes. We employ an alternate definition of corner frequency in the context of standard parametric models as the frequency at which the particle velocity spectrum attains its maximum, to examine the effect of attenuation in biassing corner frequency measurements. This approach indicates that, for a given path and attenuation model, there exists a maximum ``saturation'' frequency that can be observed, as true corner frequency tends to infinity. Equivalently, one may set a minimum bound on path averaged Q from an observed apparent corner frequency. We apply these relations to deep crustal and intraplate seismicity beneath Vancouver Island to estimate bulk crustal attenuation parameters that are subsequently used to correct apparent corner frequency measurements of low frequency earthquakes reported in a previous study. The attenuation bias due to bulk crustal structure is shown to be small, with negligible effect on the principal conclusions of that study. However, evidence for high P-to-S LFE corner frequency ratios raises the possibility that strong, localized, near-source attenuation accompanying high pore-fluid pressures governs the peculiar spectral properties of LFEs.

  20. Final report on a pilot academic e-books project at Keio University Libraries : Potential for the scholarly use of digitized academic books

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Shimada, Takashi

    This article reports on the results and significance of a pilot academic e-books project carried out at the Keio University Libraries for fiscal 2010 to 2012 to assess the viability of a new model of the libraries providing all the campuses with accesses to Japanese academic books digitized jointly with academic publishers and cooperative firms. It focuses on the experimental use of digitized books, highlighting the students’ attitudes and expectations towards e-books as found from surveys. Some major findings include the following. Users have a strong demand for digitized readings that are rather lookup-oriented than learning-oriented, with greater value placed on the functionalities of federated full-text searching, reading on a screen, and accessing the desired chapter direct from table of contents. They also want an online space in which to manage different forms of digitized learning resources. We investigated the potential of e-books and new type of textbooks as educational infrastructures based on the results of experiment. Japan’s university libraries should need to engage actively in the mass digitization of academic books to be adaptive to the change in the ways research, study and teaching are conducted. We plan to start a joint experiment with other university libraries to develop a practical model for the use of e-books.

  8. Energy band gaps in graphene nanoribbons with corners

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Szczȩśniak, Dominik; Durajski, Artur P.; Khater, Antoine; Ghader, Doried

    2016-05-01

    In the present paper, we study the relation between the band gap size and the corner-corner length in representative chevron-shaped graphene nanoribbons (CGNRs) with 120° and 150° corner edges. The direct physical insight into the electronic properties of CGNRs is provided within the tight-binding model with phenomenological edge parameters, developed against recent first-principle results. We show that the analyzed CGNRs exhibit inverse relation between their band gaps and corner-corner lengths, and that they do not present a metal-insulator transition when the chemical edge modifications are introduced. Our results also suggest that the band gap width for the CGNRs is predominantly governed by the armchair edge effects, and is tunable through edge modifications with foreign atoms dressing.

  9. Scattering patterns of dihedral corner reflectors with impedance surface impedances

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Balanis, Constantine A.; Griesser, Timothy; Liu, Kefeng

    The radar cross section patterns of lossy dihedral corner reflectors are calculated using a uniform geometrical theory of diffraction for impedance surfaces. All terms of up to third order reflections are considered for patterns in the principal plane. The surface waves are included whenever they exist for reactive surface impedances. The dihedral corner reflectors examined have right, obtuse, and acute interior angles, and patterns over the entire 360 deg azimuthal plane are calculated. The surface impedances can be different on the four faces of the dihedral corner reflector; however, the surface impedance must be uniform over each face. Computed cross sections are compared with a moment method technique for a dielectric/ferrite absorber coating on a metallic corner reflector. The analysis of the dihedral corner reflector is important because it demonstrates many of the important scattering contributors of complex targets including both interior and exterior wedge diffraction, half-plane diffraction, and dominant multiple reflections and diffractions.

  11. Backscattering reduction of corner reflectors using SCS technique

    Ajaikumar, V.; Jose, K. A.; Aanandan, C. K.; Mohanan, P.; Nair, K. G.

    1992-10-01

    The paper reports the use of a simulated corrugated surface (SCS) to reduce radar cross section of dihedral corner reflectors. The focus is on 90-deg corner reflectors, since they are involved in many targets and normally show an enhancement in RCS. The backscattering cross section of the dihedral corner reflector, which is large due to the mutual perpendicularity of the two flat surfaces, is found to be greatly reduced for TE polarization. This simple method is determined to be very effective in reducing the RCS of corner reflectors for any corner angle by suitably selecting the parameters of SCS. This may find potential use in strategic RCS reduction of targets in defense and space applications.

  12. Properties of the Ising magnet confined in a corner geometry

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Albano, Ezequiel V.; de Virgiliis, Andres; Müller, Marcus; Binder, Kurt

    2007-10-01

    The properties of Ising square lattices with nearest neighbor ferromagnetic exchange confined in a corner geometry, are studied by means of Monte Carlo simulations. Free boundary conditions at which boundary magnetic fields ±h are applied, i.e., at the two boundary rows ending at the lower left corner a field +h acts, while at the two boundary rows ending at the upper right corner a field -h acts. For temperatures T less than the critical temperature T of the bulk, this boundary condition leads to the formation of two domains with opposite orientation of the magnetization direction, separated by an interface which for T larger than the filling transition temperature T(h) runs from the upper left corner to the lower right corner, while for Tcorner or close to the upper right corner. It is shown that for T=T(h) the magnetization profile m(z) in the z-direction normal to the interface simply is linear and the interfacial width scales as w∝L, while for T>T(h) it scales as w∝√{L}. The distribution P(ℓ) of the interface position ℓ (measured along the z-direction from the corners) decays exponentially for Tcorner, is essentially flat for T=T(h), and is a Gaussian centered at the middle of the diagonal for T>T(h). Unlike the findings for critical wetting in the thin film geometry of the Ising model, the Monte Carlo results for corner wetting are in very good agreement with the theoretical predictions.

  13. Finite element model study of the effect of corner rounding on detectability of corner cracks using bolt hole eddy current

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Underhill, P. R.; Krause, T. W.

    2017-02-01

    Recent work has shown that the detectability of corner cracks in bolt-holes is compromised when rounding of corners arises, as might occur during bolt-hole removal. Probability of Detection (POD) studies normally require a large number of samples of both fatigue cracks and electric discharge machined notches. In the particular instance of rounding of bolt-hole corners the generation of such a large set of samples representing the full spectrum of potential rounding would be prohibitive. In this paper, the application of Finite Element Method (FEM) modeling is used to supplement the study of detection of cracks forming at the rounded corners of bolt-holes. FEM models show that rounding of the corner of the bolt-hole reduces the size of the response to a corner crack to a greater extent than can be accounted for by loss of crack area. This reduced sensitivity can be ascribed to a lower concentration of eddy currents at the rounded corner surface and greater lift-off of pick-up coils relative to that of a straight-edge corner. A rounding with a radius of 0.4 mm (.016 inch) showed a 20% reduction in the strength of the crack signal. Assuming linearity of the crack signal with crack size, this would suggest an increase in the minimum detectable size by 25%.

    A corner cube model is developed to calculate the SIM internal metrology optical delay bias (with the accuracy of picometer) due to the component imperfections, such as vertex offset, coating index error, dihedral error, and gimbal offset. This physics-based and Matlab-implemented ray-trace model provides useful guidance on the flight system design, integration, and characterization. In this paper, the details of the corner cube model will be described first. Then the sub-nanometer level model validation through the MAM testbed will be presented. Finally several examples of the model application, such as the metrology delay bias minimization, design parameter error budget (or tolerance) allocation, and the metrology beam prints visualization, will be shown.

  3. Capillary surface discontinuities above reentrant corners

    Korevaar, H. J.

    1982-01-01

    A particular configuration of a vertical capillary tube for which S is the equilibrium interface between two fluids in the presence of a downward pointing gravitational field was investigated. S is the graph a function u whose domain is the (horizontal) cross section gamma of the tube. The mean curvature of S is proportional to its height above a fixed reference plane and lambda is a prescribed constant and may be taken between zero and pi/2. Domains gamma for which us is a bounded function but does not extend continuously to d gamma are sought. Simple domains are found and the behavior of u in those domains is studied. An important comparison principle that has been used in the literature to derive many of the results in capillarity is reviewed. It allows one to deduce the approximate shape of a capillary surface by constructing comparison surfaces with mean curvature and contact angle close to those of the (unknown) solution surface. In the context of nonparametric problems the comparison principle leads to height estimates above and below for the function u. An example from the literature where these height estimates have been used successfully is described. The promised domains for which the bounded u does not extend continuously to the boundary are constructed. The point on the boundary at which u has a jump discontinuity will be the vertext of a re-entrant corner having any interior angle theta pi. Using the comparison principle the behavior of u near this point is studied.

    A paper describes how, based on a structural-thermal-optical-performance analysis, it has been determined that a single, large, hollow corner cube (170- mm outer diameter) with custom dihedral angles offers a return signal comparable to the Apollo 11 and 14 solid-corner-cube arrays (each consisting of 100 small, solid corner cubes), with negligible pulse spread and much lower mass. The design of the corner cube, and its surrounding mounting and casing, is driven by the thermal environment on the lunar surface, which is subject to significant temperature variations (in the range between 70 and 390 K). Therefore, the corner cube is enclosed in an insulated container open at one end; a narrow-bandpass solar filter is used to reduce the solar energy that enters the open end during the lunar day, achieving a nearly uniform temperature inside the container. Also, the materials and adhesive techniques that will be used for this corner-cube reflector must have appropriate thermal and mechanical characteristics (e.g., silica or beryllium for the cube and aluminum for the casing) to further reduce the impact of the thermal environment on the instrument's performance. The instrument would consist of a single, open corner cube protected by a separate solar filter, and mounted in a cylindrical or spherical case. A major goal in the design of a new lunar ranging system is a measurement accuracy improvement to better than 1 mm by reducing the pulse spread due to orientation. While achieving this goal, it was desired to keep the intensity of the return beam at least as bright as the Apollo 100-corner-cube arrays. These goals are met in this design by increasing the optical aperture of a single corner cube to approximately 170 mm outer diameter. This use of an "open" corner cube allows the selection of corner cube materials to be based primarily on thermal considerations, with no requirements on optical transparency. Such a corner cube also allows for easier pointing requirements

  5. Hough Transform Based Corner Detection for Laser Beam Positioning

    In laser beam alignment in addition to detecting position, one must also determine the rotation of the beam. This is essential when a commissioning new laser beam for National Ignition Facility located at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. When the beam is square, the positions of the corners with respect to one another provides an estimate of the rotation of the beam. This work demonstrates corner detection in the presence or absence of a second order non-uniform illumination caused by a spatial mask. The Hough transform coupled with illumination dependent pre-processing is used to determine the corner points. We show examples from simulated and real NIF images.

    In traditional Harris corner detection algorithm, the appropriate threshold which is used to eliminate false corners is selected manually. In order to detect corners automatically, an improved algorithm which combines Harris and circular boundary theory of corners is proposed in this paper. After detecting accurate corner coordinates by using Harris algorithm and Forstner algorithm, false corners within chessboard pattern of the calibration plate can be eliminated automatically by using circular boundary theory. Moreover, a corner sorting method based on an improved calibration plate is proposed to eliminate false background corners and sort remaining corners in order. Experiment results show that the proposed algorithms can eliminate all false corners and sort remaining corners correctly and automatically.

  9. Inviscid and Viscous Interactions in Subsonic Corner Flows

    2013-01-01

    A flap can be used as a high-lift device, in which a downward deflection results in a gain in lift at a given geometric angle of attack. To characterize the aerodynamic performance of a deflected surface in compressible flows, the present study examines a naturally developed turbulent boundary layer past the convex and concave corners. This investigation involves the analysis of mean and fluctuating pressure distributions. The results obtained indicate strong inviscid-viscous interactions. There are upstream expansion and downstream compression for the convex-corner flows, while the opposite trend is observed for the concave-corner flows. A combined flow similarity parameter, based on the small perturbation theory, is proposed to scale the flow characteristics in both subsonic convex- and concave-corner flows. PMID:23935440
