This paper addresses the use of a subset of genetic algorithms, an artificial immune system, to increase the responsiveness and accuracy of fault tolerant control in an over-actuated vehicle. These algorithms allow both inexact a priori to be easily incorporated into a model to represent the vehicle even within dynamic fault states. © 2016 Institute of Control, Robotics and Systems - ICROS.

Based upon studies between 2001 and 2010 and the continued presence of adult shrimp including gravid females, Palaemon macrodactylus (Oriental Shrimp) is established in the estuarine waters of New York City. In summer 2010, we sampled a 1000-m 2 area of the East River and found that P. macrodactylus represented 4.3% of the total shrimp population, and 15.2% of the Palaemonidae (84.8% consisted of the native species Palaemonetes vulgaris [Common Grass Shrimp]). In 2001/2002, P. macrodactylus comprised 4.2% of all palaemonids, suggesting an increase in the past decade of non-native relative to native palaemonids. While not yet appearing to be "invasive" based upon population size, the feeding habits and reproductive biology of P. macrodactylus suggest that future interactions with native shrimp may occur. A key to regional shrimp is presented.

As modern technology advances rapidly, it becomes crucial to train and educate our young engineering students. From pedagogical point of view, computer simulation provides a hands-on tool for students to gain deep insights on the dynamic performance and interactions of electric machinery, which often are not easily mastered through studying theory. In order to well prepare engineering students for the challenges presented by advanced technologies in the 21st century, the author developed a series of Matlab/Simulink programs for modeling and simulation of electric machinery, which is used by the following project. In this paper, an intelligent control of induction motor simulation program is presented, which was used in a senior design project (Independent Study) in the electrical engineering program. This project includes the following modules: motor module, PWM module, abc-to-dq module, dq-to-abc module, three phase current generator module, intelligent velocity controller module, and current controller module. Among the above modules, there are several novel ones created by the author, which replaced those existing ones in Matlab/Simulink. For an instance, to clearly visualize the relationship between internal parameters and system performances, all of the referential differential equations were embedded into the models of electrical machines. The theoretical derivation, modeling work, and simulation results in the aforementioned project are provided in the paper. © 2011 American Society for Engineering Education.

Control course is a classic but also a difficult course in engineering education. Its traditional laboratory components usually are made up of using analog devices to simulate control systems, which lack the emphasis on the soft side of intelligent control design skills. In order to well prepare our engineering students for the challenges presented by advanced technologies in the 21st century, a student-oriented control laboratory has been developed in the SUNY Maritime College for a senior control course. We adopted Windows XP based software, Program CC, in our laboratory. Program CC is a powerful tool for efficiently and effectively developing sophisticated control systems in a wide range of applications. In the laboratory, a series of eight application projects were elaborated, which include the following design themes: ship control system, submarine depth control system, DC motor control system, machine tool control system, automotive power train control system, PID controllers, aircraft control system, and satellitetracking antenna control system. Through the above hands-on projects, students not only learned how to design, analyze and synthesize a control application system, but also strengthened their understanding of theoretical and abstract subjects in control theory. With the feedbacks from students, we are confident that our newly developed laboratory made contributions in enhancing student intelligent control design skills on the soft side, which is highly demanded for a 21st century and future engineer. © 2011 American Society for Engineering Education.

Seaports have traditionally been the focus of maritime logistics supply chains. Changing production patterns demanding greater end to end visibility by customers and accessibility to key inland population centers assume greater importance in the organization and design of transport resources and cargo flows. While synchronization of all aspects of the supply chain has become an operational necessity for firms, it is often held hostage to the efficiency of hinterland networks who must respond to a large group of stakeholders with sporadic coordination. This is particularly true when looking at the central US city and region of Chicago, a critical intermodal exchange point for truck, air and river barge traffic domestic and global, as well as a major central distribution location. This paper analyzes supply chain integration (SCI) efforts in the metropolitan Chicago region and considers efforts by public and private actors to collaborate for region-wide SCI improvements. Pareto analysis suggests that concentrated freight corridors exist, influencing freight planning for regional transportation networks more directly than diffused regional freight movements. If the corridor service becomes less responsive or congested the corridor will move to different end nodes within the broad region. Regional planning must thus address national, regional, and local moves. Private/public sector infrastructure firms should address functional cooperation on SCI by focusing on corridors as well as local improvements. © 2016 Elsevier Ltd.

Presenteeism research has only recently extended from a construct capturing lost productivity due to attending work despite health issues to a construct representing students’ perceived academic performance. Aligning with presenteeism’s prevalent research paradigm, the pioneering studies used health-related issues to measure presenteeism. In contrast, this study used the Presenteeism and Perceived Academic Performance (PPAP) Scale, which the researcher developed for this study. The PPAP Scale comprises aspects of student behavior that support academic performance. This study filled gaps in the literature by investigating presenteeism as a concept associated with students’ perceived academic performance, measured with the PPAP Scale, and factors specific to maritime education. The factors investigated were self-identified by the study respondents, in sufficient numbers to support statistical analysis, as favorably (i.e., cruise and license/maritime instruction) or negatively (i.e., mandatory regimental activity, taps, morning or afternoon formations, and watch) impacting their academic performance. This study found no statistical evidence to suggest the level of presenteeism, measured with the PPAP Scale, among the study’s sample of license students is associated with factors perceived to favorably or negatively impact academic performance. Additional insight can be gained from license student participants’ responses to the study’s open-ended questions (e.g., a perceived imbalance between time available to allocate to their academics and time needed to fulfill regimental responsibilities). © 2016, World Maritime University.

Palaemon macrodactylus (Oriental Shrimp), native to estuarine waters of Southeast Asia, has been reported outside of its native range. The spreading of this species to new regions has been well documented, and its disjunct distribution strongly speaks for its transport being attributed to ballast water. In this paper, we report the first record of P. macrodactylus from the eastern coast of the United States and in the estuarine system of New York City (NYC). While this animal has been reported to have crossed the Pacific, and has been found in the eastern Atlantic along the coasts of Spain, France, Germany, and the British Isles, and in the southwestern Atlantic off the coast of Argentina, it has not been previously sighted in the northwest Atlantic. Our preliminary life-history data indicate that the size range for the 98 adult individuals in the 2001 collection was from 2.05 to 5.05 cm, and exhibited a one-to-one sex ratio. The finding of gravid females among these shrimp collected from 2001-2002 and again in 2008 indicates that the oriental shrimp populations in the coastal waters of NYC have become established, and show reproductive activity from May through October. Further studies are required to evaluate whether P. macrodactylus poses a threat to native aquatic organisms in this region.

In this paper, I investigate the effects of cross-border capital flows induced by the rate of risk-adjusted excess returns (Sharpe ratio) on the transitional dynamics of the nominal exchange rate's deviation from its fundamental value. For this purpose, a two-state time-varying transition probability Markov regime-switching process is added to the sticky price exchange rate model with shares. I estimated this model using quarterly data on the four most active floating rate currencies for the years 1973-2009: the Australian dollar, Canadian dollar, Japanese yen and the British pound. The results provide evidence that the Sharpe ratios of debt and equity investments influence the evolution of transitional dynamics of the currencies' deviation from their fundamental values. In addition, I found that the relationship between economic fundamentals and the nominal exchange rates vary depending on the overvaluation or undervaluation of the currencies.

On a natural circle bundle T(M) over a 4-dimensional manifold M equipped with a split signature metric g, whose fibers are real totally null selfdual 2-planes, we consider a tautological rank 2 distribution D obtained by lifting each totally null plane horizontally to its point in the fiber. Over the open set where g is not antiselfdual, the distribution D is (2,3,5) in T(M). We show that if M is a Cartesian product of two Riemann surfaces (Σ1, g1) and (Σ2, g2), and if g = g ⊕ (-g2), then the circle bundle T(∑1 × ∑2) is just the configuration space for the physical system of two surfaces Σ1 and Σ2 rolling on each other. The condition for the two surfaces to roll on each other 'without slipping or twisting' identifies the restricted velocity space for such a system with the tautological distribution D on T(∑1 × ∑2). We call T(∑1 × ∑2) the twistor space, and D the twistor distribution for the rolling surfaces. Among others we address the following question: "For which pairs of surfaces does the restricted velocity distribution (which we identify with the twistor distribution D) have the simple Lie group G2 as the group of its symmetries?" Apart from the well known situation when the surfaces Σ1 and Σ2 have constant curvatures whose ratio is 1:9, we unexpectedly find three different types of surfaces that when rolling 'without slipping or twisting' on a plane, have D with the symmetry group G2. Although we have found the differential equations for the curvatures of Σ1 and Σ2 that gives D with G2 symmetry, we are unable to solve them in full generality so far. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
