Cardiovascular networks span the body by branching across many generations of vessels. The resulting structure delivers blood over long distances to supply all cells with oxygen via the relatively short-range process of diffusion at the capillary level. The structural features of the network that accomplish this density and ubiquity of capillaries are often(More)
Modern models that derive allometric relationships between metabolic rate and body mass are based on the architectural design of the cardiovascular system and presume sibling vessels are symmetric in terms of radius, length, flow rate, and pressure. Here, we study the cardiovascular structure of the human head and torso and of a mouse lung based on(More)
This paper reports on the development of a prototype interface for a community discussion forum. The intention of the interface is to not only provide a means of access to a community forum, but also to portray information about that forum to the participants. The interface is therefore, being designed as being both an access mechanism to content(More)
Selection of multi-rotor aircraft systems for robotics research is a trade-off between competing objectives. While Commercial Off The Shelf systems are fast to set up and provide a ready-made platform, they often lack complete documentation and have limited extensibility for allowing researchers to modify them for scientific work. Conversely, developing an(More)
An effective presentation of components at the workstation can have a significant impact in reducing assembly time. Our goal is to develop optimal presentation plans based on design for assembly theory. The assembly factors recognized as relevant to both parts acquisition and assembly workstation layout are recognition, orientation, weight, and handling(More)
