Site specific response analysis for performance based design earthquake characteristics
(Springer Science+Business Media, 2014-06)
During strong earthquakes, seismic waves travelling towards the ground surface alter the engineering characteristics of the soil layers and consequently the characteristics of travelling seismic waves also change with ...
A new control plane for 5G network architecture with a case study on unified handoff, mobility, and routing management
The tremendous growth in wireless Internet use is showing no signs of slowing down. Existing cellular networks are starting to be insufficient in meeting this demand, in part due to their inflexible and expensive equipment ...
Error-rate performance analysis of cooperative OFDMA system with decode-and-forward relaying
In this paper, we investigate the performance of a cooperative orthogonal frequency-division multiple-access (OFDMA) system with decode-and-forward (DaF) relaying. Specifically, we derive a closed-form approximate ...
Generalized performance analysis of mixed RF/FSO systems
We investigate the performance of dual-hop fixed-gain amplify-and-forward relaying systems over Nakagami-m and double generalized Gamma fading channels with pointing error for mixed radio frequency/free space optical ...

Micro-a-fluidics ELISA for rapid CD4 cell count at the point-of-care
HIV has become one of the most devastating pathogens in human history. Despite fast progress in HIV-related basic research, antiretroviral therapy (ART) remains the most effective method to save AIDS patients' lives. ...
Relay-assisted OFDM transmission for indoor visible light communication
In this study, we investigate a relay-assisted visible light communication (VEC) system where an intermediate light source cooperates with the main light source. Specifically, we consider two light sources in an office ...
Supplier selection for framework agreements in humanitarian relief
In this study, we consider the supplier selection problem of a relief organization that wants to establish framework agreements (FAs) with a number of suppliers to ensure quick and cost-effective procurement of relief ...
Near-optimal modified base stock policies for the capacitated inventory problem with stochastic demand and fixed cost
(World Scientific Publishing, 2014-06)
In this study, we investigate a single-item, periodic-review inventory problem where the production capacity is limited and unmet demand is backordered. We assume that customer demand in each period is a stationary, discrete ...
Thresholds for global existence and blow-up in a general class of doubly dispersive nonlocal wave equations
In this paper we study the global existence and blow-up of solutions for a general class of nonlocal nonlinear wave equations with power-type nonlinearities, View the MathML source, where the nonlocality enters through two ...
