In laboratory experiments, a flameless catalytic infrared emitter, fueled by propane, was used to disinfest hard red winter wheat, Triticum aestivum L., containing different life stages of the lesser grain borer, Rhyzopertha dominica (F.), an economically important insect species associated with stored wheat in Kansas. The emitter generates infrared(More)
This paper focuses on understanding the role of structural parameters and starch crystallization on the toughness of cake samples. Accurate mechanical measurements were performed to obtain toughness values, and these were related to structural parameters obtained from image analyses. Three-dimensional skeletons of food samples were generated by using X-ray(More)
In this paper, a new method based on the Artificial Bee Colony (ABC) for determining the Schottky barrier height (&#x03A6;<inf>b</inf>), ideality factor (n) and series resistance (R<inf>S</inf>) of a Schottky barrier diode (SBD) model using forward current-voltage (I-V) characteristics, is described. For this SBD model, the Ni/n-GaAs/In Schottky barrier(More)
In this paper, a new method based on the modified artificial bee colony (MABC) algorithm to determine the main characteristic parameters of the Schottky barrier diode such as barrier height, ideality factor and series resistance. For this model, the Ni/n-GaAs/In Schottky barrier diode was produced and annealed at different temperature in a laboratory. The(More)
One third of the world is infected with tuberculosis disease. The disease is diagnosed visually by laboratory technicians. In the microscopy diagnosis with hand-eye control, misdiagnosis rate is quite high. In microscopic imaging, by using computer aided automatic diagnosis methods, the disease is true diagnosed. The robustness of the automatic diagnosis(More)
Nowadays several modifications on the digital images are made with the rapid development of image editing tools in recent years. The most common method in the modifications made is copy-move forgery. Majority of the proposed methods to detect copy-move forgery in the literature are based on block and not resistant to various geometric transformation before(More)
A laboratory benchtop flameless catalytic infrared emitter was evaluated against all life stages of the rice weevil, Sitophilus oryzae (L.), an insect species associated with stored wheat. The emitted infrared radiation was in the 3e7 mm range. A non-contact infrared thermometer measured grain temperatures continuously during exposures of infested wheat.(More)
The susceptibility of various life stages of the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum (Herbst) (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae), a pest of stored wheat, Triticum aestivum L., to flameless catalytic infrared radiation in the 3-7-microm range was evaluated in the laboratory. Immature stages were collected from flour infested with T. castaneum adults only for 1 d.(More)
Virtual mouse implemented with hand gesture tracking based on image is one of studies in human-computer interaction. In this study that human-computer interaction is implemented with virtual mouse is purposed. This study consists of three main steps that are hand gesture tracking, features of hand region extraction and classification of these features. In(More)
