Settlement of structures built on geologically
recent compressible alluvium is a common cause of
concern during design. Total settlement results from
a combination of: 1) initial elastic settlement,
2) primary consolidation, and 3) secondary compression.
The reliability of prediction of total settlement is
affected by an understanding of these components...
This thesis presents a novel methodology that enables power efficient video decoding
in an embedded system based on MPSoC (Multiprocessor System on Chip). This
methodology is a physical combination of parallel processing which reduces power
consumption of processors by exploiting thread-level parallelism and Dynamic
Voltage Frequency Scaling (DVFS) that allows...
The development of the Lee strain of type B influenza
virus was shown to be inhibited by puromycin in tissue culture of the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane. The
compound is an antibiotic of unique structure which has
been reported to possess a broad range of biological activity
against unicellular and...
