  • El Khoury, John; Hobeika, A. (2018-05-18)
    The geometric design of highway elements is based on a set of standards that do not consider the risk levels associated with these designs. Safety elements including risk measures need to be identified and incorporated ...
  • Bazi, Gabriel; El Khoury, John; Srour, F. Jordan (2017-10-12)
    This paper describes a method for using location data to optimize the routing of pavement data collection vehicles. In much of the developed world, pavement testing is performed on a regular basis; the pavement testing ...
  • Ghajar, Raymond (Iafor, 2017-05-03)
    The purpose of this paper is to examine the status of Renewable Energy (RE) development in Lebanon and to investigate the policy options that must be adopted in order to accelerate the realization of the Government’s ...
  • Abou-Rjeily, Chadi; Haddad, Serj (2016-02-15)
    In this paper, we study the effect of the presence of inter-relay connections on the performance of cooperative free-space optical (FSO) networks. Unlike the existing literature where conventional cooperation in FSO systems ...
  • Zouein, Pierrette; Tommelein, I. (2016-02-18)
    The layout of temporary facilities on a construction site necessarily changes over time, so the term dynamic layout is used to describe a sequence of layouts spanning the entire duration of construction of a project. Many ...
  • Abou-Jaoude, Grace; Appelhans, Nadine; Carlow, Vanessa Miriam; Mumm, Olaf; Murad, Majd; Schroder, Boris; Trapp, Jan Hendrik (2022-06-16)
    Cities worldwide are being confronted with perpetual economic challenges, flows of migration, and increasing vulnerability to the consequences of global changes. Within contemporary urban lines of conflict, the ‘open city’ ...
  • Ammouri, Ali H.; Kridli, Ghassan T.; Ayoub, George; Hamade, Ramsey F. (2017-05-24)
    This manuscript aims to investigate the effect of cryogenic in-process cooling via liquid nitrogen on the outcomes of the friction stir processing (FSP) of twin roll cast (TRC) magnesium alloy AZ31B. Friction stir ...
  • Wazne, Mahmoud; Chrysochoou, Maria; Dermatas, Dimitris; Moon, Doek Hyun; Christodoulatos, Christos; French, Chris; Morris, John; Kaouris, Maria (2017-08-10)
    Barium addition to chromite ore processing residue COPR was investigated in order to address a the pronounced heaving phenomena that are associated with mainly the presence of ettringite and b hexavalent chromium ...
  • Akle, Barbar J.; LEo, Donald J. (ASME, 2018-01-22)
    Ionomeric polymer transducers have received considerable attention in the past ten years due to their ability to generate large bending strain and moderate stress at low applied voltages. Bending transducers made of an ...
  • Akle, Barbar; Leo, Donald; Bennett, Matthew (ASME, 2018-01-22)
    Ionomeric polymer actuators based on Nafion membranes exhibit large bending motion (1%) under the application of small voltages (1-5 V). Actuation in these materials is believed to arise from the field-induced motion of ...
  • Akle, Barbar; Leo, Donald J.; Sundaresan, Vishnu Baba (2017-06-01)
    Plants have the ability to develop large mechanical force from chemical energy available with bio-fuels. The energy released by the cleavage of a terminal phosphate ion during the hydrolysis of a bio-fuel assists the ...
  • Akle, Barbar J.; Bennett, Matthew D.; Leo, Donald J. (SPIE, 2017-05-30)
    Ionic electroactive actuators have received considerable attention in the past ten years. Ionic electroactive polymers, sometimes referred to as artificial muscles, have the ability to generate large bending strain and ...
  • Akle, B.; Nah, C.; Kwak, S. K.; Kim, N.; Lyu, M.-Y.; Hwang, B.S.; Leo, D. J. (2016-10-17)
    A new attempt is made for application of the NafionTM nanofiber mat prepared by the electrospinning process to solve the main disadvantage of slow response speed of ionomer-ionic liquid transducers. The measured conductivities ...
  • Akle, Barbar; Weiland, Lisa Mauck (2016-10-21)
    Accurate sensing of mechanical strains in civil structures is critical for optimizing structure reliability and lifetime. For instance, combined with intelligent control systems, electromechanical sensor output feedback ...
  • Akle, Barbar J.; Duncan, Andrew J.; Long, Timothy E.; Leo, Donald J. (2016-10-17)
    Ionic polymer transducers are devices that display electromechanical transduction and are projected to have extensive applications as actuators and sensors. This study employs novel, highly branched sulfonated polysulfones ...
  • Atiyah, Perla; Pendleton, Linwood; Moorthy, Aravind (2017-09-07)
    Analysts increasingly look to the literature for estimates of the non-market value of coastal and marine resources. We examine the comprehensiveness, timeliness, geographical completeness, and methodological breadth of the ...
  • Habchi, Wassim; Bair, Scott (2019-07-26)
    The classical study of friction in elastohydrodynamic lubrication (EHL) has often invoked viscoelastic response to explain the friction behavior at small slide-to-roll ratios. In these studies the shear modulus has been, ...
  • ISSP 
    Zouein, P.P.; Shedid, D. (ASCE, 2017-08-21)
    This paper presents the ISSP system for activity scheduling and site layout planning under spatial constraints. The importance of tying schedule and layout data has been established and dealt with extensively in the ...
  • Nasr, G.; Meghabghab, G. (IEEE Xplore, 2017-12-05)
    Research into emerging technological approaches to make computer simulations more effective and efficient is an essential ingredient to developing successful manufacturing models. This study is a premiere study in using ...
  • Denis, B.; Pierrot, J. B.; Abou-Rjeily, C. (2017-05-23)
    Print Request Permissions In this paper, we describe a global distributed solution that enables the simultaneous performance of time synchronization and positioning in ultra-wideband (UWB) ad hoc networks. On the one ...
