The Anisotropic Elasticity of the Human Vocal Fold
Objective: To verify the anisotropic nature of the vocal folds by reproducing an experiment led by Rholfs that measured vocal fold elasticity in the transverse and longitudinal directions. To present a physiological ...
Using PVS for Interval Temporal Logic proofs, part 1: The syntactic and semantic encoding
Interval temporal logic (ITL) is a logic that is used to specify and reason about systems. The logic has a powerful proof system but rather than doing proofs by hand, which is tedious and error prone, we want a tool that ...
A Normative Theory of the Information Society
This is a book review, no abstract.
Risk across design domains.
(Professional Engineering Publishers, 2005)
Design processes involve risk: to life and limb if the product is unsafe, to the financial health of the company if the product is late, unsuccessful or simply the wrong product, as well as to the emotions and careers of ...
The systematic construction of information systems
Process modelling is a vital issue for communicating with experts of the application domain. Depending on the roles and responsibilities of the application domain experts involved, process models are discussed on different ...
A Methodology for comparing design processes.
(Design Society, 2003-08-19)
We gain insights into design processes by recognising similarities to other processes, often in radically different industries. The crucial determinants of what happens are characteristics shared with some other design ...
A framework for analysing the effect of "change" in legacy code
We propose a sound and practical approach, based on a formal method (known as Interval Temporal Logic), to cope with “change” and analyse its effect. The approach allows us to capture a snapshot of system’s behaviour over ...
THE ISSUE. Traffic, Health, Environment; Intelligent Solutions Sustaining Urban Economies.
(Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress, Tokyo, 2013, 2013-10)
THE ISSUE is a project within the Regions of Knowledge scheme funded through the European Commission’s Seventh Framework Programme. THE ISSUE focuses on Traffic, Health and Environment to achieve Intelligent Solutions for ...
This paper argues that the widespread belief that ambiguity is beneficial in design communication stems from conceptual confusion. Communicating imprecise, uncertain and provisional ideas is a vital part of design teamwork, ...
