In this paper, estimation of the applied force on a planar catheter is considered. An image processing approach has been chosen as the most suitable tool. For this purpose, we create a comprehensive database of catheters with different shapes and operating forces. Using image processing...
Municipal drainage systems have a key role in public health and are considered one of the main components of every modern city's infrastructure. However, as the drainage system ages, its pipes gradually deteriorate at rates that vary based on the different conditions of utilization. To prevent...
The importance of anchor ice transport of sediment on a river is significantly understudied. This study addresses the lack of data related to anchor ice release and rafting. A large sample set of anchor ice was collected in the field over the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 winter seasons to compute a...
Dynamic Behavior of an Ordinary Chondrite: the Effects of Microstructure on Strength, Failure and FragmentationDownload
Knowledge of the relationships between microstructure, stress-state and failure mechanisms is important in the development and validation of numerical models simulating large-scale impact events. In this study, we investigate the effects of microstructural constituent phases and defects on the...
This thesis concentrates on the construction of directional tensor product complex tight framelets. It uses a complex tight framelet filter bank in one dimension and the tensor product of the one-dimensional filter bank to obtain high-dimensional filter bank. It has a number of advantages over...
It is well known that most information of an image is contained in its edges. Therefore capturing edges in an image is of fundamental importance in image processing. Tensor product real-valued wavelets only capture edges along the horizontal and vertical direc- tions. Hence they are only...
Herein, we propose generating CAPTCHAs through random field simulation and give a novel, effective and efficient algorithm to do so. Indeed, we demonstrate that sufficient information about word tests for easy human recognition is contained in the site marginal probabilities and the...
Development of a Novel Electro-thermal Anti-icing System for Fiber-reinforced Polymer Composite AirfoilsDownload
Given the trend towards expanded use of polymeric composites for wind turbine blades and aircrafts wing, icing of polymer composite airfoils is a challenge; this thesis is addressing this issue from a conceptual perspective. For the first time, the concept of embedded thermal elements as an...
Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) measures the dynamic activity of each voxel of a brain. This dissertation addresses the challenge of learning a diagnostic classifier that uses a subject’s fMRI data to distinguish subjects with neuropsychiatric disorders from healthy controls. fMRI...
This paper presents a novel, simple, yet powerful texture analysis method inspired by the well-known Local Binary Patterns (LBP) method called the Local Frequency Descriptors (LFD). Like LBP, the proposed method is invariant to rotation and linear changes of illumination; however,it does not...
