  • A simpler and better way of monitoring the anisotropy of fiber-reinforced composite materials, based on the acousto-ultrasonic approach, is presented. In this approach, time of flight of the acousto-ultrasonic waves AU, rather than the stress wave factor, is measured. Two fundamental Lamb modes are generated under the first critical frequency: one is the first antisymmetric mode traveling with a slower velocity while the another is the first symmetric mode traveling with a faster speed. The later one is sensitive to the azimuthal angle and nearly nondispersive, and has a phase velocity very close to that of the bulk longitudinal wavemore » of the material. Experimental data measured from two methods, TOF measurement and slope method, are compared with theoretical results; a good agreement is obtained for monitoring the material anisotropy. There is a great potential for this AU approach in material-property evaluation and in quantitative measurements of defects and debonding of fiber-reinforced composites. However, more studies are needed to better understand the effect of the fiber/matrix bonding on the measurements and to extract more information from the AU signals.« less

  • The information retrieval systems on a wide area distributed network, such as the World-Wide Web (WWW), become popular among the extremely large number of users. The caching proxy has an important role on these systems for improving their accessibility and serviceability. The caching proxy mechanism is discussed in this paper as follows: First, the role and structure of the caching proxy are explained, and two major problems of existing systems arepointed out. Our solution to overcome these problems is proposed next. Changing a file size, by controlling a quality level of cached multimedia data, is proposed as a measure tomore » overcome one problem. As a solution to the other problem, making a cluster among neighboring caching proxies, using hyperlink information, is proposed. Finally, an improved caching proxy mechanism based upon these ideas is shown.« less
