2. EFFECTIVE AND SCALABLE UNCERTAINTY EVALUATION FOR LARGE-SCALE COMPLEX SYSTEM APPLICATIONS
Published: 12/7/2014
Authors: Kevin L Mills, James J Filliben, Junfei Xie, Yan Wan, Yi Zhou, Yu Lei
Abstract: Effective uncertainty evaluation is a critical step toward real-time and robust decision-making for complex systems in uncertain environments. A Multivariate Probabilistic Collocation Method (M-PCM) was developed to effectively evaluate system uncert ...

3. A Design-of-Experiments Approach to FEM Uncertainty Analysis for Optimizing Magnetic Resonance Imaging RF Coil Design
Published: 10/10/2014
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben, Li Ma, Karl F Stupic, Kathryn E Keenan, Stephen E Russek
Abstract: Using the RF module of COMSOL, we compute the magnetic flux density norm (BN) profiles for frequencies in the 76 to 100 MHz range, inside of a prototype birdcage coil, courtesy of Japan's National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS), loaded wit ...

4. Determining Relative Importance and Best Settings for Genetic Algorithm Control Parameters
Published: 9/25/2014
Authors: Kevin L Mills, James J Filliben, Andrea Haines
Abstract: We intend to use a classic genetic algorithm (GA) to steer a population of cloud-computing simulators into behavioral directions that reveal degraded performance and system collapse. Such a method could serve as a design tool, empowering system engin ...

5. Generalizing Face Quality and Factor Measures to Video
Published: 9/24/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: Methods for assessing the impact of factors and image-quality metrics for still face images are well-understood. The extension of these factors and quality measures to faces in video has not, however, been explored. We present a specific methodology ...

6. A New Approach to Finding a Risk-Informed Safety Factor for ,Fail-SafeŠ Pressure Vessel and Piping Design
Published: 8/24/2014
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, Nathanael A Heckert, James J Filliben, Pedro Vincente Marcal, Stephen W. Freiman
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present a new approach to finding a risk-informed safety factor for the "fail-safe" design of a high-consequence engineering system. The new approach is based on the assumption of a 99.99 % confidence level and a 99.9 ...

7. Identifying Face Quality and Factor Measures for Video
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8004
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: This paper identifies important factors for face recognition algorithm performance in video. The goal of this study is to understand key factors that affect algorithm performance and to characterize the algorithm performance. We evaluate four factor ...

8. A Baseline for Assessing Biometrics Performance Robustness: A Case Study across Seven Iris Datasets
Published: 11/7/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, Michael D Garris, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We examine the robustness of algorithm performance over multiple datasets collected with different sensors. This study provide insight as to whether an algorithm performance derived from traditional controlled environment studies will robustly extrap ...

9. Combining Genetic Algorithms & Simulation to Search for Failure Scenarios in System Models
Published: 10/28/2013
Authors: Kevin L Mills, Christopher E Dabrowski, James J Filliben, Sanford P Ressler
Abstract: Large infrastructures, such as clouds, can exhibit substantial outages, sometimes due to failure scenarios that were not considered during system design. We define a method that uses a genetic algorithm (GA) to search system simulations for parameter ...

10. Statistical Prediction of Sealant Modulus Change due to Outdoor Weathering
Published: 10/17/2013
Authors: Christopher C White, Kar T. Tan, Donald Lee Hunston, Adam L Pintar, James J Filliben
Abstract: Recently a statistically based model has been created to predict the change in modulus for a sealant exposed to outdoor weathering. The underlying high precision data supporting this model was obtained using the NIST SPHERE (Simulated Photo degrada ...
