Debonding or decohesion along a fiber-matrix interface frequently becomes the main mode of failure of a composite structure. Hence, a methodology to evaluate the decohesion is of interest of many scientists and engineers. Unfortunately, many existing methods such as the micro-bond method, the fiber pull-out method, and the fiber push-out method are too restrictive in term of the specimen design and the rate of loading. In this work, we propose a methodology to characterize the decohesion at various loading rates and verify the method experimentally. © Owned by the authors, published by EDP Sciences, 2014. Source

These days people demand more from design for a valuable offer, a design that could understand them more. And this sort of things happen in fashion design too, people need more than just a fancy and extravagant clothes and it becomes a new challenge for fashion designer to explore the design and combine it with the need of the future market. The idea on focusing on function as added value in fashion design has already emerged since the early Modernism in the early 60's. In Modernism, the beauty of aesthetic formulated based on function and material/structure exploration considered to be the future of effective design. But as time goes by, Modernism was considered to be rigid, dull and cliché, their beauty esthetic regarded as inhuman and less personal. The market demand seemed to be shifted to something more personal and have a “soul” in design, which later answered by Post Modernism that bloom in late 70's until today. So the question of how Modernism approached design, which in the beginning was actually based on human needs, technology, effectiveness and function to offer, have failed the market? How Postmodern with personal touch that less effective can answer the need of soul for humanist design in the future? But in the end are both Modernism and Post Modernism really an opposite?. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers. All rights reserved. Source

This study is conducted to investigate the relationship between price fairness, customer satisfaction, loyalty, and price acceptance in Indonesia's low-cost carrier market. The study is using a combined method of a quantitative study with paper-based questionnaires and a qualitative study by means of a focus group discussion, to LCC customers in Jakarta. Convenience sampling collects 200 usable respondents. The data is analyzed using the regression method in SPSS. The empirical result shows that in the low cost carrier market, price fairness has an impact on customer satisfaction, loyalty, and price acceptance. Customer satisfaction affects price acceptance and loyalty positively. However, loyalty has shown no effect on price acceptance. This study suggests that customer satisfaction is the main factor to build price acceptance in the low-cost airlines industry. Some managerial implications relevant to the findings are provided. © 2015 American Scientific Publishers. All rights reserved. Source

Software Product Line Development needed inconsistency checking in order to improve software quality. In order to handle conflict (inconsistency) is one of active areas in the research of Goal Oriented Requirements Engineering (GORE). Ontology is used to capture the knowledge of certain domain wished. One of the features of Ontology described using OWL is the checking of consistency. The case study is Indonesian Government Tourism System. This paper presents how to develop software product line in Indonesian Government with the Ontology OWL that used for the consistency checking in the software product line for e-government applications. It is important, because the software product line would be derived from goal model that has been consistent and no conflict These paper presents how the Ontology OWL act to handle inconsistency checking in goal model. The first step conducted is to convert the goal model into Ontology using Protégé. Parallel with the first step, Ontology with equipped carried out the checking consistency of terminology, designation, and structure. The next step is to conduct the checking of logic consistency (Strong conflict and/or Weak conflict) by defining the rules using SWRL Tab. © 2016, ASERS Publishing House. All rights reserved. Source

Understanding the behavior of tourists has been an important topic of research for decades in tourism studies. A systematic study on the behavior of tourists visit to Indonesia, specifically the reason choosing this destination for vacation and also type of participated activities seek by different tourist groups, is lacking. Therefore, this study is undertaken to fill the gap by profiling the tourists and associating them with different tourism activities. A self-administrated questionnaire was distributed to tourists in Jakarta International airport and some tourist areas around Jakarta. Statistical analysis such as factor analysis, multiple linear regressions and descriptive analysis were employed in order to analyze the data. Results indicated the push factors behind choosing Indonesia for vacation and also different participated activities among tourists from different geographical origins. The findings of this study should be considered by tourism marketers and stakeholders while developing marketing strategies. Results also will have significant practical applications and theoretical implications. © 2015, ASERS Publishing House. All right reserved. Source
