In service-oriented computing, multiple services often exist to perform similar functions. In these situations, it is essential to have good ways for qualitatively ranking the services. In this paper, we present a new ranking method, ServiceRank, which considers quality of service aspects (such as response time and availability) as well as social(More)
SOAlive aims at providing a community-centric, hosted environment and, in particular, at simplifying the description and discovery of situational enterprise services via a service catalog. We argue that a service community has an impact not only on users and services, but also on the environment itself. Specifically, our position is that a service catalog(More)
The hydrodynamic force experienced by a spherical-cap drop moving on a solid surface is obtained from two approximate analytical solutions and used to predict the quasi-steady speed of the drop in a wettability gradient. One solution is based on approximation of the shape of the drop as a collection of wedges, and the other is based on lubrication theory.(More)
Chemical engineering operations commonly involve the use of packed and fluidized beds. These are devices in which a large surface area for contact between a liquid and a gas (absorption, distillation) or a solid and a gas or liquid (adsorption, catalysis) is obtained for achieving rapid mass and heat transfer, and particularly in the case of fluidized beds,(More)
To help drive top line growth of their businesses, the development and IT organizations are under increasing pressure to create and deliver applications at ever faster paces. The advent of Cloud Computing has not only lowered the cost of IT operations but also enabled the notion of continuous delivery, which promises to radically reduce frictions in DevOps(More)
Results from experiments performed on the motion of drops of tetraethylene glycol in a wettability gradient present on a silicon surface are reported and compared with predictions from a recently developed theoretical model. The gradient in wettability was formed by exposing strips cut from a silicon wafer to dodecyltrichlorosilane vapors. Video images of(More)
The Engineering Bernoulli equation can be derived from the principle of conservation of energy. Several books provide such a derivation in detail. The interested student is encouraged to consult White (1) or Denn (2). Here, I have merely summarized the important forms of this equation for your use in solving problems. Whenever you use this equation, be sure(More)
