Time-to-event analysis is important in a wide range of applications from clinical prognosis to risk modeling for credit scoring and insurance. In risk modeling, it is sometimes required to make a simultaneous assessment of the hazard arising from two or more mutually exclusive factors. This paper applies to an existing neural network model for competing(More)
1. ABSTRACT Probabilistic Finite Element (FE) models have recently been developed to assess the impact of experimental variability present in knee wear simulator on predicted Total Knee Replacement (TKR) mechanics by determining the performance envelope of joint kinematics and contact mechanics. The gold standard for this type of analysis is currently the(More)

This paper presents a simulation scheme for water distribution systems based on loop equations. Water networks are large scale and non-linear systems. The operational control of such system has posed difficulties in the past to the human operator that had to take the right decisions, such as pumping more water or closing a valve, within a short period of(More)
Explicit finite element (FE) and multi-body dynamics (MBD) models have been developed to evaluate total knee replacement (TKR) mechanics as a complement to experimental methods. In conjunction with these models, probabilistic methods have been implemented to predict performance bounds and identify important parameters, subject to uncertainty in component(More)
Multispectral imaging is an important technique for improving the readability of written or printed text where the letters have faded, either due to deliberate erasing or simply due to the ravages of time. Often the text can be read simply by looking at individual wavelengths, but in some cases the images need further enhancement to maximise the chances of(More)
