The principle of Occam’s razor loosely translates to “the simplest solution is often the best”. The author of Kinematic Geometry of Surface Machining utilizes this reductionist philosophy to provide a solution to the highly inefficient process of machining sculptured parts on multi-axis NC machines. He has developed a method to quickly calculate the necessary parameters, greatly reduce trial and error, and achieve efficient machining processes by using less input information, and in turn saving a great deal of time.

Committees were established to oversee SD efforts in four areas: stock positioning, air distribution, surface distribution, and financial management within the Defense Transportation System (DTS). These committees are led by senior officers from the DLA Defense Distribution Center (DDC), Air Force Air Mobility Command (AMC), TRANSCOM’s Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (MSDDC), and TRANSCOM, respectively. An executive agent, two co-directors,
Leif Mejlbro was educated as a mathematician at the University of Copenhagen, where he wrote his thesis on Linear Partial Differential Operators and Distributions. Shortly after he obtained a position at the Technical University of Denmark, where he remained until his retirement in 2003. He has twice been on leave, first time one year at the Swedish Academy, Stockholm, and second time at the Copenhagen Telephone Company, now part of the Danish Telecommunication Company, in both places doing research....
In lexicalized grammatical formalisms, it is possible to separate lexical category assignment from the combinatory processes that make use of such categories, such as parsing and realization. We adapt techniques from supertagging — a relatively recent technique that performs complex lexical tagging before full parsing (Bangalore and Joshi, 1999; Clark, 2002) — for chart realization in OpenCCG, an open-source NLP toolkit for CCG. We call this approach hypertagging, as it operates at a level “above” the syntax, tagging semantic representations with syntactic lexical categories. ...
This set of candidate surface strings, represented as a word lattice, is then rescored by a wordbigram language model, to produce the bestranked output sentence. FERGUS (Bangalore and Rambow, 2000), on the other hand, employs a model of syntactic structure during sentence realization. In simple terms, it adds a tree-based stochastic model to the approach taken by the Nitrogen system. This tree-based model chooses a best-ranked XTAG representation for a given dependency structure.
As mentioned, C# and the .NET platform were first introduced to the world in 2002 and were intended to
offer a much more powerful, more flexible, and simpler programming model than COM. As you will see
during the remainder of this book, the .NET Framework is a software platform for building systems on
the Windows family of operating systems, as well as on numerous non-Microsoft operating systems such
as Mac OS X and various Unix/Linux distributions. To set the stage, here is a quick rundown of some
core features provided courtesy of .NET...
Different machining processes produce different products with varying qualities. When evaluating the
quality of a finished piece, surface roughness is the most important result of the machining process to
consider, because many product attributes can be determined by how well the surface finish is produced.
Although it has been shown that
frozen storage is feasible for some of the tissue-engineered products such as bone (Kofron et
al., 2003), it is more difficult than that for isolated cells and requires special considerations.
Water transport processes may cause difficulties for tissue-scale freezing. While cells at the
surface layer would respond to freeze-induced osmotic changes much like cells in
suspension, interior cells would dehydrate as a response to the increased intracellular
tonicity in the dehydrate surface layers.

Magnesium is the lightest of all the metals and the sixth most abundant on Earth. Magnesium is ductile and the most machinable of all the metals. Magnesium alloy developments have traditionally been driven by requirements for lightweight materials to operate under increasingly demanding conditions (magnesium alloy castings, wrought products, powder metallurgy components, office equipment, nuclear applications, flares, sacrificial anodes for the protection of other metals, flash photography and tools). The biggest potential market for magnesium alloys is in the automotive industry. ...
Over the past few decades, life-threatening environmental concerns have surfaced in the
developing world. Countrysides are coming under pressure from increasing numbers of
farmers and the landless. Cities are filling with people, cars, and factories.
Gas–liquid multiphase flows play an essential role in the workings of Nature and
the enterprises of mankind. Our everyday encounter with liquids is nearly always
at a free surface, such as when drinking, washing, rinsing, and cooking. Similarly,
such flows are in abundance in industrial applications: heat transfer by boiling is
the preferred mode in both conventional and nuclear power plants, and bubbledriven
circulation systems are used in metal processing operations such as steel
making, ladle metallurgy, and the secondary refining of aluminum and copper.
An ocean wave is an undulation of the sea surface. Wave crest,Wave trough,Wave height,Wave lengt,Wave period
Progressive waves move across the sea surface.,Standing waves oscillate about a fixed point.
Wind velocity : Wind duration, Fetch (distance over which wind blows), Simply put, wave size increases as all
these factors increase.

It takes experience, practice and brain power to
be good mathematical modelers”. Mathematical model of a system must be sufficiently
simple, easy to grasp and give a clear idea about all the qualitative aspects of the
phenomenon of interest. On the other hand, it must be sufficiently accurate in bringing the
quantitative aspects of the process. Simulation represent the application of modelling
techniques to real system, thus enabling information on plant characteristics to be gained
without either constructing or operating the full scale plant or system under consideration.
Humankind’s fascination with Mars predates
recorded history. The bright planet with the reddish tint
is unique among the other celestial objects. Tycho
Brahe’s observations of its unpredictable motion were
deciphered by Johannes Kepler in the early 17th century
as he developed his laws of planetary motion.
Galileo trained his telescope on Mars and saw it as a
disk in 1610. Later in the 1600s, Christiaan Huygens
and Gian Cassini drew the first maps of the Martian
