This study proposes an analytical model for prediction of the through thickness permeability, based on Poiseuille TMs law for hydraulic ducts approximating realistic flow channel geometries in woven fabrics. The model is applied to four 3D woven fabrics and three 2D woven fabrics. The geometrical parameters of the fabrics were characterized by employing optical microscopy. […]

This paper addresses the problem of how to represent negated statementsinvolving constants, thus asserting the absence of specific individuals, in the context of Euler diagram based logics. Our first contribution is to explore the potential benefits of explicitly representing absence using constants, in terms of clutter reduction, and to highlight ontological issues that arise. We […]

The most important parameter that affects the ability to hear and understand speech in the presence of background noise is the signal to noise ratio (SNR). Despite decades of research in speech intelligibility, it is not currently known how much improvement in SNR is needed to provide a meaningful benefit to someone. We propose that […]
