Keywords: Wind turbines Power curve modelling Artificial neural network Air density Turbulence intensity Wind shear a b s t r a c t Technical improvements over the past decade have increased the size and power output capacity of wind power plants. Small increases in power performance are now financially attractive to owners. For this reason, the need for(More)
CAD/CAM systems and CNC machines are now commonly utilized in the manufacturing industry. The integration level between these two technologies is one key element which directly impacts the productivity of NC programming and that of machining operations. With advanced integration between these technologies, significant benefits can be expected for the(More)
Juvenile and mature neotenous Ambystoma mexicanum received allogeneic and xenogeneic skin transplants. Rejection times for 1st-set, and 3rd-set grafts were noted at 21 degrees C, and for axolotls placed in a cold-room at 7 degrees C 7 h post-grafting, 1 week post-grafting and 2 weeks post-grafting respectively. In all cases graft-rejection was chronic; 2nd(More)
A B S T R A C T Numerous genotypic diversity measures (GDMs) are available in the literature to assess the convergence status of an evolutionary algorithm (EA) or describe its search behavior. In a recent study, the authors of this paper drew attention to the need for a GDM validation framework. In response, this study proposes three requirements(More)
Both juvenile (14-16 week) and adult (18 month) Ambystoma mexicanum reject skin allografts from adult Ambystoma more speedily than they reject such grafts from juvenile axolotls. Donor-specific histocompatibility antigen, prepared from splenocytes, is more effective in inhibiting adult host splenocyte migration when the antigen is prepared from spleen cells(More)
