Investigation of Future Air Taxi Services Using Discrete-Event Simulation

Jeffrey Boyd, Ellen Bass, Stephen Patek, Douglas Lee
2006 2006 IEEE Systems and Information Engineering Design Symposium  
This work conducts an analysis of the marketing and logistical considerations of an air taxi service using a discrete-event simulation. The air taxi service consists of a small fleet of aircraft transporting passengers on-demand within a regional network of cities. The discrete-event simulation models airports, passengers, aircraft and an aircraft dispatcher. The study conducted attempts to answer the following questions: What effects will aircraft capacity or fleet size have on system

A factorial experiment revealed: increasing aircraft capacity increases passenger wait times; and increasing the number of cities served increases the passenger wait times, number of flights, number of deadheads, and aircraft utilization rates.

Infant functional connectivity fingerprints predict long-term language and pre-literacy outcomes [article]

Functional connectivity analyses can delineate brain organization in infancy, enabling the characterization of early brain characteristics associated with subsequent behavioral outcomes. Previous studies have identified specific functional networks of infant brains that underlie cognitive abilities and pathophysiology subsequently observed in toddlers. However, it is unknown whether and how functional networks emerging in infancy contribute to the development of higher-order complex functions
more » ... language and literacy. Employing a five-year longitudinal imaging project starting in infancy, the current study utilizes resting-state functional connectivity MRI to examine prospective associations between infant functional connectivity fingerprints (FCF) and subsequent school-age language and foundational literacy skills. Utilizing multivariate pattern analyses, we demonstrate that FCF patterns associated with language-related brain regions established during the first year of life are prospectively associated with oral language and phonological skills at a mean age of 6.5. Moreover, these longitudinal associations are preserved when key environmental influences are controlled for and are independent of emergent language abilities in infancy, suggesting early development of functional network characteristics in supporting the acquisition of high-order language and pre-literacy skills. Altogether, the current results highlight the importance of functional organization established in infancy as a neural scaffold underlying the protracted development of complex cognitive functions.

Kinetics and Kinematics of Working Trials Dogs: The Impact of Long Jump Length on Peak Vertical Landing Force and Joint Angulation

Ellen Williams, Anne Carter, Jacqueline Boyd
2021 Animals  
Working trials is a competitive canine discipline based on work undertaken by military and police dogs. A 9 ft long jump is a key component of the discipline. Research into landing forces and joint angulation in other canine disciplines has highlighted the potential for the occurrence of soft tissue injuries, predominantly in the front limbs. There is a paucity of work into the impact of spread/long jumps on joint angulation and peak vertical force (PVF) on landing, and limited research on

This study aimed to determine whether altering the length of the long jump impacted PVF and apparent joint angulation upon landing. 21 dogs regularly competing in working trials cleared the long jump at three lengths: 9 ft (full length), 8 ft, and 7 ft. The impact of altered long jump length on the PVF, apparent shoulder and carpus angulation, and duration of landing, were analysed using general linear mixed models. There was no significant relationship between the length of the long jump and PVF or joint angulation on landing (p > 0.05). Greatest joint compression was observed on landing after clearing 9 ft. Individual variability in landing joint angulation, PVF and force distribution of the left and right front limbs on landing was observed across all three experimental lengths. We recommend further research is undertaken to examine individual variability and the effect of training and experience in working trials participants, to provide evidence-based recommendations for training people and competing dogs in this discipline.

MEASUREMENT OF THE INTENSITY-DEPENDENT REFRACTIVE INDEX USING COMPLETE SPATIO-TEMPORAL PULSE CHARACTERIZATION

GIOVANNI PIREDDA, CHRISTOPHE DORRER, ELLEN M. KOSIK WILLIAMS, IAN A. WALMSLEY, ROBERT W. BOYD
2005 Journal of nonlinear optical physics and materials  
We use complete spatio-temporal characterization of an ultrashort pulse to study selfphase modulation and other propagation effects in a sample of SF59 optical glass. The goal of this work is to perform accurate experimental measurements of the optical parameters of material samples. From the measured dependence of the self-induced phase shift on the transverse coordinate, we deduce a value of the coefficient n 2 of the intensity-dependent refractive index that is in good agreement with

1998 Geophysical Research Letters  
The effects of reducing the concentration of the potassium iodide (KI) cathode electrolyte from 1% to 0.5% in electrochemical concentration cell (ECC) ozonesondes flown at Lauder, New Zealand (45 ø S, 170 ø E) have been investigated. Four studies were made to assess these effects: 1% and 0.5% KI ozonesonde performance was compared directly in three dual flights, one year of 1% KI and one year of 0.5% KI ozonesonde profiles were compared with near-simultaneous lidar profiles, integrated

Ozonesondes flown with a 1% KI solution showed positive differences of 3% to 8% in the ozone profile and -•5% in the ozone column compared with the 0.5% KI ozonesondes, which also showed better agreement in profiles and ozone column compared with the lidar and Dobson spectrophotometer measurements respectively.

EDITORIALS adults, covering topics such as addressing uncertainty in estimating life expectancy and making a recommendation based on patient values and individual risk factors. Future research should focus on developing improved tools to assist physicians in predicting life expectancy and to support shared decision-making with patients. Although prediction tools are important, obtaining patient perspective on the use of prediction tools and preferences about discussions of life expectancy is critical.
