Effective virtual teams for new product development

At present, the existing literature shows that the factors which influence the effectiveness of virtual teams for new product development are still ambiguous. To address this problem, a research design was developed, which includes detailed literature review, preliminary model and field survey. From literature review, the factors which influence the effectiveness of virtual teams are identified and these factors are...

Security verification of the return routability protocol by Murphi

  The return routability protocol (RRP) is commonly used in route optimization to secure and authenticate mobile IPv6 signals between the mobile node and its correspondent node. In this paper, the correctness and the security of RRP were verified using a Murphi model checker. The results show that RRP has no failure and is correct. However, it is not secure, because an...

Application of Schmidt rebound hammer and ultrasonic pulse velocity techniques for structural health monitoring

The concept of non-destructive testing (NDT) is to obtain material properties of "in place" specimens without the destruction of the specimens and to do the structural health monitoring. Ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) used together with Schmidt Rebound Hammer (SRH) tests give a combined test method for health assessment by a suitable correlation between these two tests along with test by compressive testing...

Evaluation of reinforced concrete beam behaviour using finite element analysis by ABAQUS

In this research, the ABAQUS program is used to model the behaviour of reinforced concrete (RC) beams. The finite element model uses the concrete damaged plasticity approach; this model can help to confirm the theoretical calculations as well as to provide a valuable supplement to the laboratory investigations of behaviour. For validation, a reinforced concrete beam was modelled that had been experimentally tested and...
