In this paper, we are interested in aggregated search in XML documents. Our goal is to retrieve the best set of XML elements to be returned. We present a structured information retrieval model based on the Bayesian networks theory. The networks structure provides a natural representation of links between a document, its elements, and its contents. In this(More)
Successful use of composite primary structure in the automotive world is dependent on cost and performance criteria. The focus of this thesis is on the decision making process involving both of these factors for automotive applications. Emphasis was placed on composite materials and fabrication processes that can be used for medium volume (500-100,000(More)
