The objective of the present research is to develop a standard hexahedral Finite Element (FE) model of the human femur accounting for the material characteristics of cortical bone, cancellous bone and bone marrow. The anatomical data were acquired from the Visible Human Project. A detailed outline of the steps necessary in developing hexahedral FE meshes… (More)
With the advent of the SAS Integrated Object Model (IOM), which has even found its way into the $125 SAS Learning Edition, SAS has made communication between Excel and SAS more flexible than ever. This paper presents simple examples of how one can write SAS code, run SAS programs, and retrieve the results for presentation in Excel–all without leaving the… (More)
In the fall of 2010, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Veteran's Administration jointly supported a review of mobility technology in Europe. A delegation of American Scientists traveled to Europe to visit a number of research centers and engaged in a demonstration and dialogue related to the global… (More)
Ever wish you could easily transpose and summarize monthly data using just PROC SQL? Regardless of whether the data is stored in a SAS dataset or other relational databases? Even if scores of variables for dozen of months are involved? This paper tackles the task of data denormalization with a simple macro that uses PROC SQL to take a "vertical" table with… (More)
Creating good looking Excel Pivot Tables to hold your nicely summarized SAS data can be surprisingly labor intensive. This paper presents a technique and macro that combine Base SAS with Visual Basic Scripting to make it possible to fully automate the creation of custom formatted Excel Pivot Tables from SAS data sets.
The XSLT language can be used to transform XML into desired web output, but it sometimes requires more highly structured XML than the default produced by the SAS XML engine. This paper presents a macro that can be used to impose greater structure on XML produced from SAS data, making it easier to use XSLT to obtain desired formatting results. As an added… (More)
Compression of large collections of data can lead to improvements in retrieval times by offsetting the CPU decompression costs with the cost of seeking and retrieving data from disk. In this paper, the author has study the different compression method which can compress the large DNA sequence. In this paper, authors have explored the DNA compression method… (More)
