—Curriculum development in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) in the Mechanical Engineering and Applied Mechanics (MEAM) Department at the University of Michigan is presented. A course curriculum structure that integrates both mechanical and electrical engineering courses is proposed for mechanical engineering students. The proposed curriculum starts(More)
—A simulation program is developed which is capable of calculating the output responses of piezoresistive pressure sensors as a function of pressure and temperature. Analytical models based on small and large deflection theories have been applied to predict the sensitivity and linearity of pressure sensors. Surface-micromachined diaphragms with square or(More)
The last few years have witnessed a meteoric rise of microblogging platforms, such as Twitter and Tumblr. The sheer volume of the microblog data and its highly dynamic nature present unique technical challenges for the platforms that provide search services. In particular, the search service must provide real-time response to queries, and continuously(More)
