The method of intelligent computer simulation of laser gyros behavior under vibrations to ensure their reliability and cost-effective development and production
Paper presents the computer simulation of laser gyros behavior under vibrations at the designing early stages. It allows for savings on repetitive tests and re-designing, finally improves reliability and economic efficiency of development and production.
This book constitutes the proceedings of the First Asia Pacific Conference on Business Process Management held in Beijing, China, in August 2013.
In all, 19 contributions from seven countries were submitted. Following an extensive review process by an international Program Committee, seven full papers and one short paper were accepted for publication in this book and presentation at the conference. In addition, a keynote by Wil van der Aalst is also included.
Three types of copper traces for PCBs were investigated: 1) 2.5 μm thin film lines (Ti;Cu;Ni) on aluminium and ceramic (Al2O3) substrates; 2) 2.5 μm thin film lines (Ti;Cu;Ni;Au) on ceramic (Al2O3) substrates; 3) 15 μm traces (Cu;Ni) on polyimide substrate for high density interconnection PCBs. The width of all types of traces was varying in the range of 100-500 μm. The set of temperature-current diagrams for different PCB scenarios are presented and analyzed. The temperature caused by Joule heating was measured using IR camera Flir A40 with macrolens. For different cases the current was set in the range of 0.1-3 A; the measured temperature was in the range of 20-140 oC. The close agreement between the results measured and simulated with ELCUT software tool was achieved.
Business Process Management (BPM) has become one of the most widely used approaches for the design of modern organizational and information systems. The conscious treatment of business processes as significant corporate assets has facilitated substantial improvements in organizational performance but is also used to ensure the conformance of corporate activities. This Handbook presents in two volumes the contemporary body of knowledge as articulated by the world' s leading BPM thought leaders. This first volume focuses on arriving at a sound definition of BPM approaches and examines BPM methods and process-aware information systems. As such, it provides guidance for the integration of BPM into corporate methodologies and information systems. Each chapter has been contributed by leading international experts. Selected case studies complement their views and lead to a summary of BPM expertise that is unique in its coverage of the most critical success factors of BPM. The second edition of this handbook has been significantly revised and extended. Each chapter has been updated to reflect the most current developments. This includes in particular new technologies such as in-memory data and process management, social media and networks. A further focus of this revised and extended edition is on the actual deployment of the proposed theoretical concepts. This volume includes a number of entire new chapters from some of the world's leading experts in the domain of BPM. "The practice of Business Process Management has progressed significantly since Michael Hammer and I wrote the Reengineering book. This "handbook" presents the most complete description of the competencies required for BPM and exhaustively describes what we have learned about process management in the last 20 years."
Computer simulation of mechanical testing is used primarily for the correct interpretation of their results and is particularly relevant in cases, when the properties of the material during deformation are essentially nonlinear. For example: when we study mechanical properties of materials with high rate sensitivity. First of all it is superplastic titanium alloys. Superplastic materials exhibit the ability to severe plastic deformation without discontinuities if forming occurs in a narrow range of strain rates, specific to each alloy and temperature-dependent. In the study of superplastic materials, it’s necessary to maintain a constant rate of deformation of the sample. This is achieved by conducting an experiment with a special program loading, crosshead speed at which change during the experiment.
We consider the problem of estimating 3-d structure from a single still image of an outdoor urban scene. Our goal is to efficiently create 3-d models which are visually pleasant. We chose an appropriate 3-d model structure and formulate the task of 3-d reconstruction as model fitting problem. Our 3-d models are composed of a number of vertical walls and a ground plane, where ground-vertical boundary is a continuous polyline. We achieve computational efficiency by special preprocessing together with stepwise search of 3-d model parameters dividing the problem into two smaller sub-problems on chain graphs. The use of Conditional Random Field models for both problems allows to various cues. We infer orientation of vertical walls of 3-d model vanishing points.
