This paper explores the feasibility of detecting damage within structures such as air foils by application of eddy current based techniques and reduced order modeling. To identify the geometry of a damage, an optimization algorithm is employed which requires solving the forward problem numerous times. Therefore, the forward algorithm must be solved with(More)
In this paper, we develop a model for predation movements of a subsocial spider species, Anelosimus studiosus. We expand on a previous model to include multiple spider interaction on the web as well as a latency period during predation. We then use the model to test different spatial configurations to determine the optimal spacing of spiders within a colony(More)
In this paper, we develop a stochastic differential equation model to simulate the movement of a social/subsocial spider species, Anelosimus studiosus, during prey capture using experimental data collected in a structured environment. In a subsocial species, females and their maturing offspring share a web and cooperate in web maintenance and prey capture.(More)

This paper introduces a computational method for use with eddy current damage detection techniques. To identify the geometry of a subsurface damage, an optimization algorithm is employed which requires solving the forward problem numerous times. In order for the method to be effective in a practical setting, i.e., in real-time applications, the forward(More)
