      Automatic test derivation from formal specifications offers a rigorous discipline to functional conformance testing. In various application domains, such as communication protocols and other reactive systems, the specification ...
    • Fault Detection of Fuel Systems Using Polynomial Regression Profile Monitoring 

      Awad, Mahmoud (Wiley Online Library, 2016-08-09)
      Anomaly detection is the characterization of a normal behavior of a system or process and identification of any deviation from such normal behavior. Anomaly detection of critical systems provides an important financial and ...
    • Fault-Tolerant Network Topologies for Datacenters 

      Attia, Heba Mahmoud Helal (2017-05)
    • Feasibility of 3D Depth Camera in the Civil Engineering Field 

      Bastaki, Amira; Al-Saleh, Dareen; AlAwadhi, Mariam; Alalawi, Saeed; AlSamahi, Soughah (2016-11)
      In the civil engineering field, land surveying is the foundation of any construction process and has always been the method of choice for topographic mapping analysis. One of the latest technologies of 3D Depth Camera is ...
    • Feasibility of Condensate Recovery in Humid Climates 

      Hassan, Noha M. (2013)
      This study investigates the practicality of using the air-conditioning condensate as an additional source of water. The scarcities of natural water resources, especially in arid regions, represent a major obstacle restraining ...
    • Feature modeling using polynomial classifiers and stepwise regression 

      Shanableh, Tamer; Assaleh, Khaled (Elsevier, 2010)
      In polynomial networks, feature vectors are mapped to a higher dimensional space through a polynomial function. The expanded vectors are then passed to a single layer network to compute the model parameters. However, as ...
    • Fetal ECG Signal Enhancement 

      Ahmadi, Maryam (2008-06)
      Fetal heart monitoring yields vital information about the fetus health and can support medical decision making in critical situations. A compound signal is obtained non-invasively by placing electrodes on the abdomen area ...
    • Few-cycle laser driven reaction nanoscopy on aerosolized silica nanoparticles 

      Rupp, Philipp; Burger, Christian; Kling, Nora G.; Kübel, Matthias; Mitra, Sambit; Rosenberger, Philipp; Weatherby, Thomas; Saito, Nariyuki; Itatani, Jiro; Alnaser, Ali; Raschke, Markus B.; Rühl, Eckart; Schlander, Annika; Gallei, Markus; Seiffert, Lennart; Fennel, Thomas; Bergues, Boris; Kling, Matthias F. (Springer Nature, 2019)
      Nanoparticles offer unique properties as photocatalysts with large surface areas. Under irradiation with light, the associated near-fields can induce, enhance, and control molecular adsorbate reactions on the nanoscale. ...
    • Finding a Solution For Recycling Wastes 

      Amer, Karim; Hamdan, Hassan; Charkaoui, Younis (2014-07-22)
      Over the past few years, there has been a remarkable growth in trash disposal all over the UAE, especially in Dubai, due to its huge demographic growth. Most of this trash is being disposed in large landfills in huge ...
