Drosophila suzukii Matsumura, often called spotted wing drosophila, is an exotic vinegar fly that is native to Southeast Asia and was first detected in the continental United States in 2008. Previous modeling studies have suggested that D. suzukii might not survive in portions of the northern United States or southern Canada due to the effects of cold. As a(More)
Low bone density, fractures, and kyphosis complicate the lives of adults with cystic fibrosis (CF), and inflammatory cytokines (interleukin [IL]-1beta, IL-6, and tumor necrosis factor [TNF]-alpha) that may alter bone metabolism have been previously found to be increased in the lungs and serum of CF patients. The objective of this prospective study was to(More)
During the end-to-end digital design of a commerical airliner, a massive amount of geometric data is produced. This data can be used for inspection or maintenance throughout the life of the aircraft. Massive model interactive ray tracing can provide maintenance personnel with the capability to easily visualize the entire aircraft at once. This paper(More)
Interactive display and visualization of large geometric and textured models is becoming a fundamental capability. There are numerous application areas, including games, movies, CAD, virtual prototyping, and scientific visualization. One of observations about geometric models used in interactive applications is that their model complexity continues to(More)
Visualizing, testing and debugging distributed systems is a challenging task that is not well addressed by conventional software tools. OverView, an event-based Eclipse plug-in that provides runtime visualization of systems running on distributed Java virtual machines is presented. In the same way that the coding and debugging tools in Eclipse make writing(More)
This article describes the application of ray tracing to several aircraft manufacturing scenarios. Today's computer-aided design frameworks and techniques are extensively applied in virtually all industrial engineering design projects. The emergence of modeling systems powerful enough to manage an entire geometric project database has made it possible to(More)
Online visualization enables developers to test, de-bug, and monitor the behavior of distributed systems, while they are running. While important in software development, online visualization of distributed systems is largely unaddressed by conventional tools. Distributed systems are often programmed using high-level abstractions that facilitate reasoning(More)
