  • Dynamics: A Lecturebook 

    Lyon, Bob (University of Kansas Libraries, 2018)
    Engineering mechanics deals with the effects on bodies that are subjected to forces. The two primary subdivisions of mechanics are statics; where the bodies remain at rest, and dynamics; where the bodies are put in motion. ...

    Rock, Brian A. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2017-12)
    Designs of stairways are highly code-regulated for life-safety reasons. Today, for improved environmental sustainability as well as better personal health, popular advice says to use the stairs instead of an elevator ...
  • Mini-Split: Two-Story Houses and Stratification 

    Rock, Brian A. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2017-02)
    A common complaint from occupants of low or moderate cost two-story houses and apartments is that their “upstairs” floor is often uncomfortably warm in the summer, while their “main” floor is either comfortable or too cool. ...
  • Controlling Cracks in Bridge Decks 

    Khajehdehi, Rouzbeh; Darwin, David (University of Kansas Center for Research, Inc., 2018-12)

    Pinar, Orkun; Tamerler, Candan; Yazgan Karataş, Ayten (TÜBİTAK, 2017)
    In this study, a novel laccase gene, named as Cplcc1, and its corresponding cDNA were isolated and characterized from the Coriolopsis polyzona MUCL 38443 strain. The Cplcc1 gene consists of a 1563-bp open reading frame ...
  • The effect of variations in first- and second-order derivatives on airfoil aerodynamic performance 

    Yi, Penghui; Wang, Ying; Sun, Xiaojing; Huang, Diangui; Zheng, Zhongquan (Taylor & Francis, 2016-12-04)
    The geometric factors which influence airfoil aerodynamic performance are attributed to variations in local first- and second-order curvature derivatives. Based on a self-developed computational fluid dynamics (CFD) program ...
  • Abstracting Extensible Data Types: Or, Rows by Any Other Name 

    Morris, J. Garrett; McKinna, James (Association for Computing Machinery, 2019)
    We present a novel typed language for extensible data types, generalizing and abstracting existing systems of row types and row polymorphism. Extensible data types are a powerful addition to traditional functional programming ...
  • Exceptional Asynchronous Session Types: Session Types without Tiers 

    Fowler, Simon; Lindley, Sam; Morris, J. Garrett; Decova, Sara (Association for Computing Machinery, 2019)
    Session types statically guarantee that communication complies with a protocol. However, most accounts of session typing do not account for failure, which means they are of limited use in real applicationsÐespecially distributed ...
  • Securing Smart Grid In-Network Aggregation through False Data Detection 

    Li, Fengjun; Yang, Lei (European Alliance for Innovation, 2017-01-14)
    Existing prevention-based secure in-network data aggregation schemes for the smart grids cannot e ectively detect accidental errors and falsified data injected by malfunctioning or compromised meters. In this work, we ...
  • Macroscopic and microscopic analyses of managed lanes on freeway facilities in South Florida 

    Sajjadi, Soheil; Kondyli, Alexandra (Elsevier, 2017-12-05)
    As congestion grows in metropolitan areas, agencies tend to utilize managed lanes on their freeway systems. Managed lanes have several forms and names, such as high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes, high-occupancy toll (HOT) ...
