Combustion synthesis and subsequent sintering of titanium-matrix composites
Titanium-matrix composites containing up to 50 wt% TiC particles were prepared by combustion synthesis using elemental powders. The products were subsequently sintered at 1160°C for various periods of time. SEM and X-ray ...
Timing analysis of optimized code
Timing analysis is a crucial test for dependable hard real-time systems (DHRTS). The calculation of the worst-case execution time (WCET) is mandatory. As modern compilers are able to produce small and efficient code, ...
Adaptive ingress admission control for differentiated services
Admission control is a critical element for supporting Quality-of-Service in networks. We propose and evaluate the performance of an adaptive ingress admission control scheme that is suitable for use in a Differentiated ...
