11. Fault Localization Based on Failure-Inducing Combinations
Topic: Math
Published: 11/7/2013
Author: Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has been shown to be a very effective testing strategy. After a failure is detected, the next task is to identify the actual fault that causes the failure. In this paper, we present an approach to fault localization that le ...

12. Fourier, Gegenbauer and Jacobi expansions for a power-law fundamental solution of the polyharmonic equation and polyspherical addition theorems
Topic: Math
Published: 6/5/2013
Author: Howard S Cohl
Abstract: We develop complex Jacobi, Gegenbauer and Chebyshev polynomial expansions for the kernels associated with power-law fundamental solutions of the polyharmonic equation on d-dimensional Euclidean space. From these series representations we derive Fouri ...

13. Determining Mechanical Reliability of Brittle Materials
Topic: Math
Published: 4/18/2013
Authors: Stephen W. Freiman, Jeffrey T Fong
Abstract: The widespread existence of slow crack growth in most glasses and ceramics due to a stress-enhanced reaction between an external environment and strained bonds at a crack tip greatly complicates the challenge of assuring the reliability of components ...

14. An Input Space Modeling Methodology for Combinatorial Testing
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2013
Authors: Mehra N. Borazjany, Laleh Ghandehari, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: The input space of a system must be modeled before combinatorial testing can be applied to this system. The effectiveness of combinatorial testing to a large extent depends on the quality of the input space model. In this paper we introduce an input ...

15. Applying Combinatorial Testing to the Siemens Suite
Topic: Math
Published: 3/22/2013
Authors: Laleh Ghandehari, Mehra N. Borazjany, Yu Lei, Raghu N Kacker, David R Kuhn
Abstract: Combinatorial testing has attracted a lot of attention from both industry and academia. A number of reports suggest that combinatorial testing can be effective for practical applications. However, there still seems to lack systematic, controlled stud ...

16. Five Examples of Assessment and Expression of Measurement Uncertainty
Topic: Math
Published: 2/12/2013
Author: Antonio M Possolo
Abstract: It is a long accepted tenet of scientific practice that every measurement result ought to include a statement of uncertainty associated with the measured value, and that such uncertainty should be propagated to derivative products. It is also widely ...

17. A Bayesian Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) Approach to Estimating Remaining Life of Aging Pressure Vessels and Piping
Topic: Math
Published: 1/1/2013
Authors: Jeffrey T Fong, William F Guthrie, James J Filliben, Nathanael A Heckert
Abstract: In this paper, we use a Bayesian quantitative nondestructive evaluation (QNDE) approach to estimating the remaining life of aging structures and components. Our approach depends on in-situ NDE measurements of detectable crack lengths and crack g ...

18. Definite integrals using orthogonality and integral transforms
Topic: Math
Published: 10/19/2012
Authors: Howard S Cohl, Hans Volkmer
Abstract: We obtain definite integrals for products of associated Legendre functions with Bessel functions, associated Legendre functions, and Chebyshev polynomials of the first kind using orthogonality and integral transforms.

19. Counting on Today's Students
Topic: Math
Published: 9/3/2012
Author: Isabel M Beichl

20. Transient Convection-Diffusion Modelling of Peak Temperature in Orthogonal Cutting
Topic: Math
Published: 8/19/2012
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak
Abstract: Numerical finite-difference simulations of a two-dimensional transient fast convection-slow diffusion model of the temperature field in orthogonal cutting, due to Tlusty, have been shown to provide better predictions of the peak temperature during or ...
