The primary objective of the research was to identify and evaluate effective ways of improving traffic operations and safety on congested freeways. There was particular interest in finding condition-responsive traffic control solutions for the following problem areas: (1) end-of-queue warning, (2) work zones with lane closure, and (3) queue spillover at(More)
The effects of graded levels of corn distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) were investigated as a partial replacement for sources of protein, energy, and other nutrients for broilers when the digestible amino acid balance was maintained. Zero, 8, 16, and 24% DDGS were incorporated into isonutritive diets at the expense of corn, soybean meal, and(More)
Received (received date) Revised (revised date) Accepted (accepted date) We review the security requirements for a vehicle communication network. We also provide a critical assessment of the security communication architectures and perform an analysis of the keys to design an efficient and secure vehicular network. We propose a novel unconditionally secure(More)
Closed-loop traffic control systems can be operated by either Time-of-Day (TOD) mode or Traffic Responsive Plan Selection (TRPS) mode. When properly configured, the TRPS mode has the potential to provide an optimal operation due to its ability to accommodate abnormal traffic conditions such as incidents, special events, and holiday traffic. TRPS mode can(More)
Received (received date) Revised (revised date) Accepted (accepted date) In a former paper [Fluct. Noise Lett., 13 (2014) 1450020] we introduced a vehicular communication system with unconditionally secure key exchange based on the Kirch-hoff-Law-Johnson-Noise (KLJN) key distribution scheme. In this paper, we address the secure KLJN key donation to(More)

The intestinal peptide transporter, PepT1, is known to be regulated by a variety of dietary factors, including protein quantity, protein quality, and feed intake. The objective of this experiment was to determine the effect of dietary protein composition on mRNA abundance of chicken PepT1. From day of hatch to day 8, chicks from 2 genetic lines (A and B,(More)
A given data set can be analyzed many ways, but only one is the correct analysis based on the design actually used when running the experiment. This work gives a tutorial-like illustration of the effects of the presence of a regression variable (or covariate) on the recorded responses in an experiment set up as a standard factorial design and shows how the(More)
