Title: MATLAB implementation of W-matrix multiresolution analyses

Abstract

We present a MATLAB toolbox on multiresolution analysis based on the W-transform introduced by Kwong and Tang. The toolbox contains basic commands to perform forward and inverse transforms on finite 1D and 2D signals of arbitrary length, to perform multiresolution analysis of given signals to a specified number of levels, to visualize the wavelet decomposition, and to do compression. Examples of numerical experiments are also discussed.

  • Traditional polar format image formation for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) requires a large amount of processing power and memory in order to accomplish in real-time. These requirements can thus eliminate the possible usage of interpreted language environments such as MATLAB. However, with trapezoidal aperture phase history collection and changes to the traditional polar format algorithm, certain optimizations make MATLAB a possible tool for image formation. Thus, this document's purpose is two-fold. The first outlines a change to the existing Polar Format MATLAB implementation utilizing the Chirp Z-Transform that improves performance and memory usage achieving near realtime results for smaller apertures.more » The second is the addition of two new possible image formation options that perform a more traditional interpolation style image formation. These options allow the continued exploration of possible interpolation methods for image formation and some preliminary results comparing image quality are given.« less
  • In this research, thermal residual stresses were incorporated in an analysis of fiber-bridged matrix cracks in unidirectional and cross-ply titanium matrix composites (TMC) containing center holes or center notches. Two TMC were investigated, namely, SCS-6/Timelal-21S laminates. Experimentally, matrix crack initiation and growth were monitored during tension-tension fatigue tests conducted at room temperature and at an elevated temperature of 200 C. Analytically, thermal residual stresses were included in a fiber bridging (FB) model. The local R-ratio and stress-intensity factor in the matrix due to thermal and mechanical loadings were calculated and used to evaluate the matrix crack growth behavior in themore » two materials studied. The frictional shear stress term, tau, assumed in this model was used as a curve-fitting parameter to matrix crack growth data. The scatter band in the values of tau used to fit the matrix crack growth data was significantly reduced when thermal residual stresses were included in the fiber bridging analysis. For a given material system, lay-up and temperature, a single value of tau was sufficient to analyze the crack growth data. It was revealed in this study that thermal residual stresses are an important factor overlooked in the original FB models.« less
  • The objective of this research is to evaluate the capability of regional stations in discrimination of underground nuclear explosions from earthquakes and non-nuclear explosions. Efforts during the first year of this program have focused on studies of regional data from the Chinese Digital Seismic Network(CDSN) and Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology(IRIS) stations in the Soviet Union. A previous report described observations from the CDSN station at WMQ which indicated differences in relative spectral content of Lg versus regional P for explosions and earthquakes. In the current research we used different spectral analyses to study the signals from a larger eventmore » sample including 27 East Kazakh explosions and 32 regional earthquakes. Lg/P ratios for regional earthquakes were found to be enriched at high frequencies compared to similar explosions. In comparing explosions from Shagan River and Degelen Mountain areas it was found that regional P signals are relatively stronger from SR than from DM explosions with similar Lg signals. Analysis of East Kazakh explosion signals recorded at Soviet IRIS stations indicates that regional signals are observable down to very low magnitudes. Lg magnitude residuals from these stations have been used to derive effective Q values for these paths.« less
  • The activity focuses on the traffic operational impacts of Automated Highway Systems (AHS) entry/exit facilities at the points where they interface with the local street network. Information and results from several of the other Precursor Systems Analyses (PSA) activity areas are utilized in the conduct of the entry/exit research. Various strategies for AHS entry and exit are considered and their attributes identified. Analyses determined the operating conditions based on AHS volumes and ramp volumes from other PSA studies. Measures of effectiveness were established to allow comparison of different entry and exit strategies.
  • The overall project is to assess the applicability of intracavity laser absorption spectroscopy for in-situ, non-instrusive monitoring of the desorption of barium-containing species from operating thermionic cathodes. The goal was the implementation, characterization, and optimization of a CW dye laser system with regard to its performance in an intracavity laser absorption apparatus. The purpose of the final report is to document the course of events associated with the task in the context of the overall mission of cathode evaluation and advanced approaches for predicting and improving cathode performance and lifetime. Four observations demonstrate the success of the project: (1) manymore » unassigned absorption features due to the atmosphere (most likely due to molecular oxygen) were discovered in the vicinity of the barium absorption line.« less
