  • Praul, Samuel; Hmurcik, Lawrence V. (American Institute of Physics, 1973-05-11)
    Measurement of temperature using a thermocouple or any other device requires a certain length of time. This time interval is of the order of magnitude of the thermal time constant of the measuring device. Here we describe ...
  • Hmurcik, Lawrence V.; Kaup, D. J. (The Optical Society of America, 1979-04)
    If an incident pulse is chirped, the critical parameters for self-induced transparency to occur in coherent pulse propagation can no longer be obtained from the well-known McCall-Hahn area theorem. We have been able to ...
  • Hmurcik, Lawrence V.; Micinilio, J. P. (American Association of Physics Teachers, 1986-11)
  • Hmurcik, Lawrence V.; Kinsler, Mark R. (Technomic Publishing Co., 1988-04)
    The van der Pauw (VdP) technique provides a four-probe measurement of a sample’s average resistivity. It is generally applied to samples which have a uniform density and thickness but an arbitrary shape. We apply the VdP ...
  • Kinsler, Mark R.; Patton, Joyce; Hmurcik, Lawrence V. (Chapman and Hall Ltd., 1988-04)
    Stainless steel fibres in ABS plastic form a composite with an anisotropic resistivity. Samples are rectangular shapes with uniform thickness. By assuming two principal resistivities and by using van der Pauw's technique, ...
  • Hmurcik, Lawrence V.; Slacik, Amy; Miller, Hilda; Samoncik, Sandy (American Association of Physics Teachers, 1989-02)
    Linear regression analysis (least squares) is used in the first physics lab in order to introduce students to computer-aided analysis and to teach data fitting techniques. Application is made to two experiments: Fletcher’s ...
  • Hettinger, Mathias; Gottschalk, Kenneth; Fitchen, Franklin; Hmurcik, Lawrence V. (IEEE, 1990-05)
    A plan is presented for integrating SPICE (simulation program with integrated circuit emphasis) into an undergraduate electronics curriculum. Three design projects for students are described: a network theory project, an ...
  • Alameldin, Tarek K.; Badler, Norman; Sobh, Tarek M.; Mihali, Raul (SPIE, 1991-03-01)
    An efficient computation of 3D workspaces for redundant manipulators is based on a "hybrid" algorithm between direct kinematics and screw theory. Direct kinematics enjoys low computational cost, but needs edge detection ...
  • Elleithy, Khaled M.; Bayoumi, Magdy A. (IEEE, 1992-04)
    An implementation of a fast and flexible residue decoder for residue number system (RNS)-based architectures is proposed. The decoder is based on the Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT). It decodes a set of residues to its ...
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Owen, Jonathan C. (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1994-05-25)
    The reverse engineering of machined parts requires sensing an existing part and producing a design (and perhaps a manufacturing process) for it. We have developed a reverse engineering system that has proven effective with ...
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Owen, Jonathan C.; Valavanis, Kimon P.; Gracanin, Denis (IEEE, 1994-06)
    A Subject-indexed Bibliography of Discrete Event Dynamic Systems is given. Each Subject is briefly and some characteristic topics and references for each subject are listed. The complete reference list is provided on the ...
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Alameldin, Tarek K. (Informatica, 1994-09-20)
    In this paper we address the problem of host to host communication. In particular, we discuss the issue of efficient and adaptive transmission mechanisms over possible physical links. We develop a tool for making decisions ...
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Bajcsy, Ruzena (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1995-09-08)
    In this work we establish a framework for the general problem of observation, which may be applied to different kinds of visual tasks. We construct 'intelligent' high-level control mechanisms for active visual recognition ...
  • Elleithy, Khaled M.; Bayoumi, Magdy A. (1995-11)
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Dekhil, Mohamed; Henderson, Thomas C.; Mecklenburg, Robert (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1996)
    Developing an environment that enables optimal and flexible design of robot manipulators using reconfigurable links, joints, actuators, and sensors is an essential step for efficient robot design and prototyping. Such an ...
  • Elleithy, Khaled M.; Amin, Alaaeldin A.M. (Academic Publication Council, Kuwait University, 1996-12)
    In this paper a new approach for implementing CIRCAL algorithms using event logic is presented. A high-level description of an algorithm is expressed in CIRCAL, a formal parallel hardware description language. The approach ...
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Benhabib, Beno (IEEE, 1997-06)
    Discrete Event and Hybrid Systems modeling has been used extensively in automation, robotics, and manufacturing appilications. Different frameworks for dynamic supervisory controllers are used in flexible manufacturing ...
  • Xiong, Xingguo; Zou, Qiang; Lu, Deren; Wang, Weiyuan (SPIE, 1997-09-29)
    A simple and effective method using a balance to measure micro force and corresponding deflection is presented. The method is proved to be very practical in testing the force-deflection behavior of silicon cantilever, in ...
  • Mahmood, Ausif; Chu, Y.; Sobh, Tarek M. (IEEE, 1997-12)
    Sparse-matrix solution is a dominant part of execution time in simulating VLSI circuits by a detailed simulation program such as SPICE. The paper develops a parallel-block partitionable sparse-matrix-solution algorithm ...
  • Sobh, Tarek M.; Henderson, Thomas C.; Zana, Frederic (1998)
    In this work we address the problem of tolerance analysis across the domains of industrial inspection using sensed data, CAD design, and manufacturing. Instead of using geometric primitives in CAD models to define and ...
