Ranked critical factors in PPP briefings
Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are increasingly used to procure Australian infrastructure projects. As with all construction projects, the early briefing stages are often the most crucial in de...
A review of studies on Public–Private Partnership projects in the construction industry
Public–Private Partnership (PPP) in construction is gaining in popularity. Although papers published in major journals have documented real cases of PPP projects, there appears to be a lack of syst...
Critical success factors for value management workshop in Malaysia
The application of value management (VM) in Malaysia increased dramatically after it was made a mandatory requirement for public projects exceeding 50 million Renminbi. This paper reports the findi...
A comparison between electromyography-driven robot and passive motion device on wrist rehabilitation for chronic stroke
Background: The effect of using robots to improve motor recovery has received increased attention, even though the most effective protocol remains a topic of study.
Motivational differences across post-acceptance information system usage behaviors : an investigation in the business intelligence systems context
We identify two post-acceptance information system (IS) usage behaviors related to how employees leverage implemented systems. Routine use (RTN) refers to employees' using IS in a routine and stand...
丁译《万国公法》研究 = A Study on the translation of Elements of international law by W.A.P. Martin
《万国公法》（1864）一书由美国传教士丁韪良译自亨利 惠顿的《国际法原理》（1855），标志了中国被纳入国际法体系的开端。现有 研究多关注其史学和法学贡献，在翻译研究领域对文本规范进行描写 的研究尚未展开。通过借鉴兹瓦特提出的翻译迁移模式，本研究引入 "句段" 概念，完善了从英文到文言文的双语文本对比模式，并以此 为出发点建立了原作和译作的平行语料库。随后结合伦理论证模式， 从事实、逻辑...
Computation partitioning in mobile cloud applications : modeling, optimization and evaluations
Second, we study the model of single user computation partitioning, where the application is composed of dependent computations and the partitioning decision is done for one single user. We found t...
Development of two optical fiber sensing technologies and applications in monitoring geotechnical structures
The recent advances in optical fiber sensing techniques have inspired researchers to explore potential applications in geotechnical engineering due to the inherent merits that optical fiber sensors...
Low-temperature sintered lead-free piezoelectric ceramics and their applications for vibratory gyrosensors
The main objectives of the present work are to prepare low-temperature sintered lead-free piezoelectric ceramics and to fabricate piezoelectric vibratory gyro-sensors using the lead-free piezoelect...
Low power organic field effect transistors and inverters with high dielectric constant (high-k) amorphous metal oxide
Organic field effect transistors (OFETs) are critical building blocks in many new generations of organic electronic devices, such as memories, bio-sensors, flexible organic light emitting diodes (O...
A system monitoring model by examining entity dynamics
Monitoring plays an essential role in the manufacturing processes, as it bridges the gap between system conditions and the necessary corrective activities. Generally, for a Computer Integrated Manu...
Failure prediction of hydroforming aluminum tubular blanks
Aiming for weight and product cost reduction as well as structure enhancement, different industries have been embarking on the development of new manufacturing processes and materials to produce di...
Crosswind effects on road vehicles moving on ground and long-span bridges
This thesis mainly focuses on the ride comfort and safety of road vehicles moving on either the ground or long-span bridges under crosswinds using advanced vehicle models and considering aerodynami...
Behavior of chitosan immobilized CdS nanocrystals with various crosslinking and drying treatments in textile dye photodegradation
Chitosan based photocatalyst composites containing semiconducting CdS nanocyrstals with and without glutaraldehyde and epichlorohydrin crosslinking treatments were studied for the photodegradation ...
Modeling and querying probabilistic RDFS data with correlated triples using Bayesian networks
Resource Description Framework (RDF)is a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) data model for the Semantic Web. RDF data are RDF triples, and an RDF triple is a triple (subject, property, object). RDF Sc...
Surface modification of polydimethysiloxane through plasma ion implantation
Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) is a silicone elastomer with many attractive properties such as machinability, low cost, and resistance to corrosion in various industrial and biomedical applications, a...
Electromagnetic damping and energy harvesting devices in civil structures
Energy harvesting is an emerging technique that extracts green energy from ambient environment to power electronics. For example, it can provide sustainable power to autonomous wireless sensors, th...
Asset-based and capacity-building in postdisaster Sichuan : community social work intervention in rural China
Among the many natural disasters that hit China in recent years, the "5.12 Earthquake" which occurred on May 12th in 2008 in Sichuan has to be the one that provided social work to demonstrate its s...
Miniature fiber-tip Fabry-Perot interferometric sensors for pressure and acoustic detection
Pressure/acoustic detection has widespread applications in automobile, bio-medical, and oil/gas industries. Compared with their electro-mechanical counterparts, optical fiber pressure sensors (OFPS...
Alkoxy- and amino-benzamides as inhibitors of the bacterial cell division protein FtsZ and antibacterial agents
Since their discovery in the 20th century, antibiotics have been prescribed for patients with bacterial infections. The first commercially available antibiotic was penicillin, which was discovered ...
