Many of the popular building energy simulation programs around the world are reaching maturity –some use simulation methods (and even code) that originated in the 1960s. For more than two decades, the U.S. government supported development of two hourly building energy simulation programs, BLAST and DOE–2. Designed in the days of mainframe computers,(More)
We examine whether Basu's (1997) differential timeliness metric and the related C-Score metric are effective in detecting predictable differences in conservatism surrounding corrections of overstated earnings. Cross-sectional and time-series analyses , employing 2132 firms making restatements during 1999–2005, suggest Basu-based metrics capture variation in(More)

ABTRACT A new building energy simulation program, known as EnergyPlus, was first released in April 2001. EnergyPlus builds on the capabilities and features of BLAST and DOE-2 and includes many simulation features such as variable time steps, configurable modular systems that are integrated with a heat balance-based zone simulation and input and output data(More)

Many building energy simulation programs developed around the world are reaching maturity. Many use simulation methods (and even code) that originated in the 1960s. Without substantial redesign and restructuring of the programs, continuing to expand their capabilities has become difficult, time-consuming, and prohibitively expensive. However, recent(More)

This paper aims to study the steady-state response of the practical sliding mode controlled system (SMC). The nonlinearity of the switching term is approximately characterized by using its equivalent describing function. The parasitic dynamics is modeled as a first order lag transfer function, and the possible transport delay is particularly considered.(More)
On 15 May 2015 during the 18th Annual American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) Meeting 1 regulators from the International Pharmaceutical Regulators Forum Gene Therapy Working Group presented current expectations of various international regulatory authorities for preclinical/nonclinical biodistribution (BD) studies. This session began with a(More)
Alien species are brought into countries world wide on a massive scale for agricultural production, ex situ conservation, landscape aesthetics, gardens, and ecosystem restoration. Unfortunately, some of these species have escaped and adversely impacted on regional as well as global biodiversity conservation and agricultural production. To reduce such risks,(More)
