—This paper discusses the design optimization of a wing for supersonic transport (SST) using a multiple-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA). Three objective functions are used to minimize the drag for supersonic cruise, the drag for transonic cruise, and the bending moment at the wing root for supersonic cruise. The wing shape is defined by 66 design(More)
This paper describes an application of Adaptive Range Multiobjective Genetic Algorithms (ARMOGAs) to aerodynamic wing optimization. The objectives are to minimize transonic and supersonic drag coefficients, as well as the bending and twisting moments of the wings for the supersonic airplane. A total of 72 design variables are categorized to describe the(More)
Recently, it has been proposed that novel methodologies are needed to re-evaluate apoptotic cell death, as studies of apoptosis have shown it to be a complex process. Since mitochondria are key regulators in cell death pathways, we developed a simultaneous 3-parameter flow cytometric analysis that incorporates the change in mitochondrial membrane potential(More)
Self-Organizing Maps (SOMs) have been used to visualize tradeoffs of Pareto solutions in the objective function space for engineering design obtained by Evolutionary Computation. Furthermore, based on the codebook vectors of cluster-averaged values of respective design variables obtained from the SOM, the design variable space is mapped onto another SOM.(More)
— In this study, in order to realize an assist of independent life for the elderly or people in need of care and relieve a physical burden for care worker, an active support splint driven by pneumatic soft actuator (ASSIST) has been developed. ASSIST consists of a plastic interface with the palm and arm and two rotary-type soft actuators put in both sides(More)
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is a model organism for the functional genomics of monocotyledonous plants since the genome size is considerably smaller than those of other monocotyledonous plants. Although highly accurate genome sequences of indica and japonica rice are available, additional resources such as full-length complementary DNA (FL-cDNA) sequences are(More)
A wireless 3-D NoC architecture for CMPs, in which the number of processor and cache chips stacked in a package can be changed after the chip fabrication, is proposed by using the inductive coupling technology that can connect more than two known-good-dies without wire connections. Each chip has data transceivers for uplink and downlink in order to(More)
