      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 ...
