Reacting to situational needs for disaster relief measures and deployment of limited resources is a two-pronged operational and procedural protocol. It involves pre-disaster scenario-based planning and subsequently real-time on-the-field execution. In view of the potential complexity in terms of scale and magnitude involved, the pre-disaster stage has taken on a greater significance in an effort to achieve a state of operational readiness. In this article, we outline OptiSmart, a fully integrative planning system that can help fulfill such requirements. The system incorporates state-of-the-art optimization algorithms to carry out planning and scheduling, coupled with effective visualization and simulation tools to facilitate high-level operational support planning. This is applicable to both pre-disaster scenario planning as well as on the ground deployment and execution of real-time disaster management of operational protocol. © 2017 ACM.

A generalized high-order finite-difference method [discrete singular convolution-symplectic integrator propagator (DSCSIP)] is proposed to analyze the electromagnetic scattering problem in which the time difference is discretized by the SIP and the spatial difference by the DSC. When compared with the standard finitedifference time-domain (FDTD) method, the DSC-SIP method not only has higher stability and accuracy but also can save the computing memory space and CPU time with suitable meshes. Numerical examples are provided to show the high stability and effectiveness of the proposed method. © 2011 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

During expiration, the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels inside the dead space of a filtering facepiece respirator (FFR) increase significantly above the ambient concentration. To reduce the CO2 concentration inside the dead space, we attach an active lightweight venting system (AVS) comprising a one-way valve, a blower and a battery in a housing to a FFR. The achieved reduction is quantified with a computational-fluid-dynamics model that considers conservation of mass, momentum and the dilute species, CO2, inside the FFR with and without the AVS. The results suggest that the AVS can reduce the CO2 levels inside the dead space at the end of expiration to around 0.4% as compared to a standard FFR, for which the CO2 levels during expiration reach the same concentration as that of the expired alveolar air at around 5%. In particular, during inspiration, the average CO2 volume fraction drops to near-to ambient levels of around 0.08% with the AVS. Overall, the time-averaged CO2 volume fractions inside the dead space for the standard FFR and the one with AVS are around 3% and 0.3% respectively. Further, the ability of the AVS to vent the dead-space air in the form of a jet into the ambient - similar to the jets arising from natural expiration without a FFR - ensures that the expired air is removed and diluted more efficiently than a standard FFR. © 2015 Birgersson et al.

A generalized higher-order finite-difference method (in which the time difference utilizes the symplectic integrator propagator and the spatial difference utilizes the discrete singular convolution) is proposed to analyze electromagnetic scattering from multiple targets. Numerical test results have demonstrated the higher stability and enhanced effectiveness of the proposed method when compared with the standard FDTD procedure. In addition, there are significant reductions in CPU time and memory space requirements when used with suitable meshes. © 2010 IEEE.
