Improving The Player's Recruiting Process By Using Scenario Based Analysis Methodology, 2016 Clemson University
Improving The Player's Recruiting Process By Using Scenario Based Analysis Methodology, Dotan I. Shvorin, Kevin M. Taaffe
High performance physical characteristics can be found today in most of the potential recruits for any given athletic program. It has become increasingly difficult to select the right candidate based solely on physical or mental characteristics. There is growing need for a recruiter to evaluate the decision-making (DM) capability of a player in order to differentiate between predicted levels of performance. The scenario based analysis (SBA) methodology is a unique approach to evaluating such decision-making capabilities while enabling any recruiting process to customize the potential candidate evaluation, based on its specific program needs. The proposed methodology provides a platform for ...
Improving Risk Assessment Communication, 2016 Iowa State University
Improving Risk Assessment Communication, Mark A. Gallagher, Douglas A. Boerman, Cameron A. Mackenzie, David M. Blum
Industrial and Manufacturing Systems Engineering Publications
Assessors often diminish communicating risk to show a single category or color without providing a full context of the evaluation, basis, and assumptions behind the risk assessment. We attempt to remedy that by presenting an approach to communicate risk assessments more completely with a clearer understanding of these issues. First, we specify assessor should present necessary information as part of a standard risk assessment statement. This information is discussed in four groups: 1) the activity or a collection of activities being assessed, 2) the context of the assessment (who made it, when, with what scope, and how rigorously), 3) setting ...

On Convergence Analysis Of Dual Proximal-Gradient Methods With Approximate Gradient For A Class Of Nonsmooth Convex Minimization Problems, Sanming Liu, Zhijie Wang, Chongyang Liu
In this paper, we consider the problem of minimizing a nonsmooth convex objective which is the sum of a proper, nonsmooth, closed, strongly convex extend real-valued function with a proper, nonsmooth, closed, convex extend real-valued function.
Nonlinear 3d Finite Element Modeling For Structural Failure Analysis Of Concrete Sleepers/Bearers At An Urban Turnout Diamond, 2015 University of New South Wales
Nonlinear 3d Finite Element Modeling For Structural Failure Analysis Of Concrete Sleepers/Bearers At An Urban Turnout Diamond, Minh Vu, Sakdirat Kaewunruen, Mario Attard
Railway urban turnout is a special track system used to divert a train from a particular direction or a particular track onto other directions or other tracks. It is a structural grillage system that consists of steel rails, points (or called “switches”), crossings, steel plates, rubber pads, insulators, fasteners, screw spikes, beam bearers (either tim- ber, polymer, steel, or concrete), ballast and formation. There are two types of turnouts, a conventional turnout and a tangential turnout. Standard conventional turnouts are designed typically for straight main line track. The combination of switch length, heel angle, and cross rate defines the turnout ...
Bi Objective P-Hub Median Location In Public Administration Considering Economies Of Scales, Ali Tofighian
ali asghar tofighian
This paper addresses hub location systems with regard to financial issues, in view point of constructors and customers. It challenges classic assumptions of hub location problem and develops three mathematical models which satisfy more realistic assumption. These models are based on three possible policies: 1) constructors (government) want to establish a new system to facilitate public transportation. In this case gaining financial benefits is not high prior 2) constructors want to participate in an economically feasible project and achieve breakeven point within very first period (year) and 3) constructors want to participate in an economically feasible project and gain breakeven ...
Perspectives For Low-Carbon Electricity Production Until 2030: Lessons Learned From The Comparison Of Local Contexts In Poland And Portugal, 2015 Wroclaw University of Technology
Perspectives For Low-Carbon Electricity Production Until 2030: Lessons Learned From The Comparison Of Local Contexts In Poland And Portugal, Wojciech Budzianowski, Joao Gomes
This paper compares perspectives for low-carbon electricity production in two EU member states - Poland and Portugal until 2030. Electricity production capacities, carbon emissions of electricity production, and production cost of electricity (COE) of Poland and Portugal are analyzed. The dilemmas of investments into low-carbon electricity production technologies relying on: (i) renewable energy sources (RES), (ii) nuclear fuel, and (iii) fossil fuels integrated with carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) are discussed. Roadmap 2050 recommends about 40% decarbonization of electricity generation by 2030 and 100% by 2050. Based on electricity production mix forecast for 2030 carbon emissions of electricity are estimated at ...
Supporting Shrinkage: Better Planning And Decision-Making For Shrinking Cities, 2015 Tufts University
Supporting Shrinkage: Better Planning And Decision-Making For Shrinking Cities, Justin Hollander, Michael Johnson, Eliza Whiteman
Michael P. Johnson
The goal of this book is to describe and analyze a powerful new tool to help shrinking cities: analytics, in particular, decision models. The poster child for decline, Detroit, Michigan, has been subject to much media and scholarly attention in recent years with its ongoing depopulation and recent bankruptcy filing. In a New York Times story on the city’s new mayor, the reporter asked the question: “Do services and infrastructure designed for all of this city’s 139 square miles still make sense with a population of 700,000 and stretches of blocks where only a few houses remain ...
System-Wide Prediction Of General, All-Cause, Preventable Hospital Readmissions, 2015 Purdue University
System-Wide Prediction Of General, All-Cause, Preventable Hospital Readmissions, Ken Musselman, Brandon Pope, Steve Witz, Zhiyi Tian, Lingsong Zhang, Linda Leon, Ann Davis
Existing studies of hospital readmissions typically focus on specific diagnoses, age groups, discharge dispositions, payer classes, or hospitals, and often use small samples. It is not clear how predictive models generated from such studies generalize across diseases, hospitals, or time periods. In this study, a logistic regression model of readmission risk within 30 days based on hospital administrative data was constructed and validated across hospitals and time periods. The hospitals included both general and specialty hospitals such as long-term care, women’s, and children’s hospitals. The administrative data included information on patient’s demographics, diagnoses, procedures, and discharge disposition ...

Journal of Human Performance in Extreme Environments
We used a field excursion to the West Clearwater Lake Impact structure as an opportunity to test factors that contribute to the decisions a remote field team (for example, astronauts conducting extravehicular activities (EVA) on planetary surfaces) makes while collecting samples for return to Earth. We found that detailed background on the analytical purpose of the samples, provided to the field team, enables them to identify and collect samples that meet specific analytical objectives. However, such samples are not always identifiable during field reconnaissance activities, and may only be recognized after outcrop characterization and interpretation by crew and/or science ...

Developing And Testing An Anguilliform Robot Swimming With Theoretically High Hydrodynamic Efficiency, 2015 University of New Orleans
Developing And Testing An Anguilliform Robot Swimming With Theoretically High Hydrodynamic Efficiency, John B. Potts Iii
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
An anguilliform swimming robot replicating an idealized motion is a complex marine vehicle necessitating both a theoretical and experimental analysis to completely understand its propulsion characteristics. The ideal anguilliform motion within is theorized to produce ``wakeless'' swimming (Vorus, 2011), a reactive swimming technique that produces thrust by accelerations of the added mass in the vicinity of the body. The net circulation for the unsteady motion is theorized to be eliminated.
The robot was designed to replicate the desired, theoretical motion by applying control theory methods. Independent joint control was used due to hardware limitations. The fluid velocity vectors in the ...
