Interval Approach To Phase Measurements Can Lead To Arbitrarily Complex Sets - A Theorem And Ways Around It, Bharat C. Mulupuru, Vladik Kreinovich, Roberto Osegueda Oct 2003

Interval Approach To Phase Measurements Can Lead To Arbitrarily Complex Sets - A Theorem And Ways Around It, Bharat C. Mulupuru, Vladik Kreinovich, Roberto Osegueda

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

We are often interested in phases of complex quantities; e.g., in non-destructive testing of aerospace structures, important information comes from phases of Eddy current and magnetic resonance.

For each measurement, we have an upper bound D on the measurement error dx=X-x, so when the measurement result is X, we know that the actual value x is in [X-D,X+D]. Often, we have no information about probabilities of different values, so this interval is our only information about x. When the accuracy is not sufficient, we perform several repeated measurements, and conclude that x belongs to the intersection ...


Statistical And Dempster-Shafer Techniques In Testing Structural Integrity Of Aerospace Structures, Roberto A. Osegueda, Seetharami R. Seelam, Ana C. Holguin, Vladik Kreinovich, Chin-Wang Tao, Hung T. Nguyen Dec 2001

Statistical And Dempster-Shafer Techniques In Testing Structural Integrity Of Aerospace Structures, Roberto A. Osegueda, Seetharami R. Seelam, Ana C. Holguin, Vladik Kreinovich, Chin-Wang Tao, Hung T. Nguyen

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

We describe the existing statistics-related methods of testing structural integrity for aerospace structures, describe their drawbacks, how they can be overcome, and compare the resulting techniques.


Computational Geometry And Artifical Neural Networks: A Hybrid Approach To Optimal Sensor Placement For Aerospace Nde, Roberto A. Osegueda, Carlos M. Ferregut, Mary J. George, Jose M. Gutierrez, Vladik Kreinovich Sep 1997

Computational Geometry And Artifical Neural Networks: A Hybrid Approach To Optimal Sensor Placement For Aerospace Nde, Roberto A. Osegueda, Carlos M. Ferregut, Mary J. George, Jose M. Gutierrez, Vladik Kreinovich

Departmental Technical Reports (CS)

The ideal design of an airplane should include built-in sensors that are pre-blended in the perfect aerodynamic shape. Each built-in sensor is expensive to blend in and requires continuous maintenance and data processing, so we would like to use as few sensors as possible. The ideal formulation of the corresponding optimization problem is, e.g., to minimize the average detection error for fault locations. However, there are two obstacles to this ideal formulation:

--First, this ideal formulation requires that we know the probabilities of different fault locations etc., and there are usually not enough statistics to determine these probabilities.

--Second ...

Proceedings of the International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Semiotics (ISAS'97), National Institute of Standards and Technology Publ., Gaithersburg, MD, 1997, pp. 378-382.

Celestial bodies such as galaxies, stellar clusters, planetary systems, etc., have different geometric shapes (e.g., galaxies can be spiral or circular, etc.). Usually, complicated physical theories are used to explain these shapes; for example, several dozen different theories explain why many galaxies are of spiral shape. Some rare shapes are still difficult to explain.

It turns out that to explain these "astroshapes", we do not need to know the details of physical equations: practically all ...
