We consider a time-dependent stopping problem and its application to the decision-making process associated with transplanting a live organ. "Offers" (e.g., kidneys for transplant) become available from time to time. The values of the offers constitute a sequence of independent identically distributed positive random variables. When an offer arrives, a(More)
Interface cracks are seldom subjected to pure Mode I or pure Mode II conditions. Station~y interface cracks between two distinct, bonded elastic-creep materials subjected to remotely applied mixed mode loading are simulated. The finite element method (FEM) is used to examine crack tip fields and candidate driving force parameters for crack growth. Plane(More)
