This article presents a BIE (Boundary Integral Equation) modeling that applies the technique of domain mapping (Shiah and Tan (1998) [12]) as well as MRM (Multiple Reciprocity Method (Nowak (1989) [10])) to treat the problem of 3D anisotropic heat conduction involving arbitrary volume heat source. By the domain mapping technique, the original function of(More)
The project's major objective is to demonstrate and assess the applicability of commercial remote sensing products and spatial information technologies to environmental analysis in transportation planning, using the I-405 corridor in Washington State as a test case. The project consisted of six major tasks: 1) Undertake field study in two stages, first to(More)
