The models described in this paper for treating congestion in DEA are extended by according them chance constrained programming formulations. The usual route used in chance constrained programming is followed here by replacing these stochastic models with their ''deterministic equivalents.'' This leads to a class of non-linear problems. However, it is shown(More)
Tumor necrosis factor (TNF) plays a key role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bone resorption and associated morbidity in diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and periodontitis. Mechanisms that regulate the direct osteoclastogenic properties of TNF to limit pathological bone resorption in inflammatory settings are mostly unknown. Here, we show that the(More)
Sculptured surfaces are usually machined to their final shapes by a series of rough and finish passes. After each pass, excess material may be left at some concave or C1 discontinuous areas. Traditionally these undercut areas are " cleaned up " by repeatedly machining the whole surface with progressively smaller cutting tools. We present an algorithm for(More)

Failure analysis is a critical step for solving design, process, product and customer application issues. Failure analysts need to have strong and broad technical background as well as unique personality to be successful in this field. Failure analysis flow contains 8 basic steps, and should be followed to ensure the quality of the daily analysis work.(More)
