The Extreme Programming development Methodology (XP) seems appropriate for some teams or projects. Anecdotal stories from developers who have tried XP are often favorable. However, there is little empirical evidence to support or refute claims regarding XP. The Extreme Programming Evaluation Framework (XP-EF) provides a benchmark measurement framework for(More)
Software organizations are progressively adopting the development practices associated with the Extreme Programming (XP) methodology. Most reports on the efficacy of these practices are anecdotal. This paper provides a benchmark measurement framework for researchers and practitioners to express concretely the XP practices the organization has selected to(More)

Computer models simulating blast effects on ship personnel are needed, but thus far, development of models has focused on simulating blast effects on ship structure and equipment. Thus, capability gaps exist in predicting the type and severity of injuries from surface or underwater weapon impact, estimating medical response requirements, and determining(More)
The release of oil into the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) during the Deepwater Horizon event coincided with the white and pink shrimp spawning season. To determine the potential impact on shrimp larvae a series of static acute (24–96 h) toxicity studies with water accommodated fractions (WAFs) of Macondo Canyon (MC) 252 crude oil, the Corexit 9500A dispersant, and(More)
