Fisheries scientists face a challenge in that virtually all methods of fish capture or observation are selective. Further, most fish capture methods can be applied to only a fraction of the entire area of interest. Thus, measures such as catch per unit effort (C/f) or catch per area can only be regarded, at best, as being proportional to the true population(More)
Recent additive manufacturing technologies, such as 3-D printing and printed electronics, require constant speed motion for consistent material deposition. In this paper, a new path planning algorithm is developed for an \(XY\) -motion stage with an emphasis on aerosol printing. The continuous aerosol stream provided by the printing nozzle requires constant(More)
One of the major challenges facing fishery scientists and managers today is determining how fish populations are influenced by habitat conditions. Many approaches have been explored to address this challenge, all of which involve modeling at one level or another. In this paper, we explore a process-oriented model approach whereby the critical population(More)
Recently, new multifunctional fasteners called `smart fasteners' have been proposed for structural health monitoring applications. These devices can be fabricated by modifying the design of ordinary fasteners such that they have a piezoceramic stack transducer embedded in their body. Like ordinary fasteners, smart fasteners can be installed simply by(More)
