One of the most promising and critical application of vehicular ad hoc networks (VANETs) is improvement of the road traffic safety. Currently there is a growing belief that putting an 802.11-like radio into road vehicles could help the drivers to travel more safely. Although research in this field is in preliminary stage, some simple implementations are… (More)
Cutting stock problem (CSP) affects cost of production and stock use efficiency in many industries. The majority of such industries handle stock of raw material in sheet form with the priority of waste reduction. Thus, in this paper we study the two-dimensional CSP (2-D CSP) with main goal of minimizing trim loss. Current approaches are primarily designed… (More)

BACKGROUND In the living donor liver transplant setting, the preoperative assessment of potential donors is important to ensure the donor safety. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to identify causes and costs of living liver-donors rejection in the donation process. MATERIALS AND METHODS From June 2010 to June 2012, all potential living liver donors… (More)
Information security policy is a critical property in any organization. For systems, the security policy addresses constraints on access by external systems and adversaries including programs and access to data by people. A continuous research effort is done throughout security policy aspects, such as policy procedures, documentation, policy enforcement,… (More)

IMplicit Pressure Explicit Saturation (IMPES) scheme with treating buoyancy and capillary forces is used to solve the two-phase water-CO 2 flow problem. In most of the previous studies of the two-phase flow, the buoyancy force term was ignored; however, in the case of liquid-gas systems such as water-CO 2 , the gravity term is very important to express the… (More)
