Keywords: Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles Market penetration Agent-based model a b s t r a c t A spatially explicit agent-based vehicle consumer choice model is developed to explore sensitivities and nonlinear interactions between various potential influences on plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) market penetration. The model accounts for spatial and social(More)
Adhesive Particle Flow: A Discrete-Element Approach offers a comprehensive treatment of adhesive particle flows at the particle level. This book adopts a particle-level approach oriented toward directly simulating the various fluid, electric field, collision, and adhesion forces and torques acting on the particles, within the framework of a discrete-element(More)
A Parallelized sharp-interface fixed grid method for moving boundary problems. 1 ABSTRACT The primary objective of this thesis is to develop a general computational framework to perform large scale moving boundary problems in fluid mechanics. The interactions of moving entities with fluid flow are common to numerous engineering and biomedical applications.(More)

This study presents a prototype of a spatially-explicit and socially-embedded agent based model to study adoption of plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) technology under a variety of scenarios. Heterogeneous agents decide whether or not to buy a PHEV by weighing environmental benefits and financial considerations (based on their personal driving habits, their(More)
