A nonlinear model describing the relationship between the biosurfactant concentration as a process output and the critical medium components as the independent variables was developed by artificial neural network modeling. The model was optimized for the maximum biosurfactant production by using genetic algorithm. Based on a single-factor-at-a-time(More)
Tissue engineering of the small intestine remains experimental despite worldwide attempts to develop a functional substitute for short bowel syndrome. Most published studies have reported predominant use of PLLA (poly-L-lactide acid)/PGA (polyglycolic acid) copolymer as the scaffold material, and studies have been limited by in vivo experiments. This lack(More)
Mass transport across surfactant-covered oil-water interfaces of microemulsions plays an important role in numerous applications. In the current work, we use coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations to investigate model systems containing flat hexadecane-water interfaces covered by monolayers of nonionic surfactants of various lengths. Several(More)
This paper proposes a new thermal nonlinear modeling technique for packaged integrated systems. Thermal behavior of complicated systems like packaged electronic systems may exhibit nonlinear and temperature dependent properties. As a result, it is difficult to use a low order linear model to approximate the thermal behavior of the packaged integrated(More)
Efficient temperature estimation is vital for designing thermally efficient, lower power and robust integrated circuits in nanometer regime. Thermal simulation based on the detailed thermal structures no longer meets the demanding tasks for efficient design space exploration. The compact and composable model-based simulation provides a viable solution to(More)
This paper proposes a new thermal modeling method for package design of high-performance microprocessors. The new approach builds the thermal behavioral models from the given accurate temperature and power information by means of the subspace method. The subspace method, however, may suffer predictability problem when the practical power is given as a(More)
Accurate runtime power estimation is important for on-line thermal/power regulation on today's high performance processors. In this paper, we introduce a power calibration approach with the assistance of on-chip physical thermal sensors. It is based on a new error compensation method which corrects the errors of power estimations using the feedback from(More)
Temperature estimation and prediction are critical for online regulation of temperature and hot spots on today's high performance processors. In this paper, we present a new method, called FRETEP, to accurately estimate and predict the full-chip temperature at runtime under more practical conditions where we have inaccurate thermal model, less accurate(More)
In this paper, we propose a new behavioral thermal modeling technique for high-performance microprocessors at package level. Firstly, the new approach applies the subspace identification method with the consideration of practical power maps with correlated power signals. We show that the input power signal needs to meet an independence requirement to ensure(More)
