  • Measuring A Rural And An Urban Catchment

    1588 Words  | 7 Pages

    2004). At the completion of the first catchment simulation, the majority of the water in sponge was removed, and 1000 millilitre tube topped up with water to have exactly 1000 millilitres. The repeat of this simulation was to have a plastic A4 sheet placed on the sponge to represent an urban catchment, and the same process was implemented. To keep the simulations fair and balanced, the roles in the experiment have to be consistent, and the motion in which

  • Simulating The Entire Learning Environment, To Be Used

    1288 Words  | 6 Pages

    opportunity: how can a system designer design, implement, and validate a simulation to be used in evaluating adaptive support systems for doctoral learners. My proposed research aims to address this gap by depicting the design process, implementation, validation, and use of a simulation model for em-pirical evaluation of various personalized support strategies for doctoral learners. While the long-term goal is to show how simulation can be used to evaluate the design process of advanced learning

  • Policy Gaming For Strategy And Change Essay

    1405 Words  | 6 Pages

    “Policy Gaming for Strategy and Change” The following assignment is a summary of the article “Policy Gaming for Strategy and Change” that was written by Geurts, Duke and Vermeulen in 2007. In the article, it can be read how companies can use gaming simulations in order to analyse future scenarios and adapt certain strategies to their complex organisational environment. The article begins with an introduction about policy gaming, why it is becoming more useful for today 's organisations and the statement

  • Questions On Derivation Of Equations

    914 Words  | 4 Pages

    DERIVATION OF EQUATIONS The purpose of this section is to find the analytical expressions which relate the S-parameters of an SUS, S _ij and error box, S _ijE, to the whole simulation results, S _ijm. Fig. 3 describes the network flow graph of a typical and all-inclusive simulation involving an SUS, shifted (de-embedded) reference planes and wave ports. According to the wave port characteristic (Appendix), the de-embedded sections are non-reflecting transmission lines with the following known S-parameter

  • Jet Copies Case Problem Essay

    Assignment #1: JET Copies Case Problem   Read the “JET Copies” Case Problem on pages 678-679 of the text.  Using simulation estimate the loss of revenue due to copier breakdown for one year, as follows: 1. In Excel, use a suitable method for generating the number of days needed to repair the copier, when it is out of service, according to the discrete distribution shown. 2. In Excel, use a suitable method for simulating the interval between successive breakdowns, according to the continuous

    wish to simulate. The model output is the NR and the optimum amino acid intake. Statistical approach and mathematical models The model described simulates the potential performance and hence nutrient requirements at a flock bird level, for this simulation needed of the µ and σ of the population, this parameter can be acquired from experiments or literature data. Body weight gain (BWG.R) with random numbers from a standardized normally distributed population were generated using the following generalized

  • Software And Flip Flop Gates

    Abstract In recent years, much research has been devoted to the construction of extreme programming; contrarily, few have evaluated the confusing unification of extreme programming and courseware. After years of typical research into extreme programming, we demonstrate the investigation of XML, which embodies the robust principles of complexity theory. WAG, our new heuristic for courseware, is the solution to all of these challenges. Table of Contents 1 Introduction End-users agree that relational

  • A Multi Agent Cross Platform Modelingand-

    Dor Abrahamson, and Uri Wilensky ABSTRACT NetLogo [3], a multi-agent cross-platform modelingand- simulation environment, has been enhanced with new capabilities. We explain selected simulations from our Models Library and describe recent enhancements (e.g., 3D) and demonstrate extensions (e.g., music). We focus on H u b N e t [5], a technological infrastructure for facilitating participatory simulations [6], run these activities with participants, and discuss learning experiences afforded by these

  • Activity-based costing in restaurants

    5341 Words  | 22 Pages

    Activity-based costing in restaurants 1. Introduction Interest in cost and management accounting practices in the restaurant industry is rising (Raab et al., 2009; Annaraud et al., 2008). Pavesic (1985) has initiated research in pricing and cost accounting for restaurants, introducing the concept of profit factor (PF) in menu engineering (ME). Prior studies, such as the one presented in Chan and Au (1998) investigate the implications of not incorporating overhead costs in menu-item profitability

  • The Importance Of Sea Temperature Anomalies

    1856 Words  | 8 Pages

    The oceans play an important role in the climate system owing to the interannual and longer timescale variability in sea surface temperature (SST). Hasselmann (1976) proposed that this climate variability could be represented by a stochastic first order auto-regressive process (AR1-process) and should be considered as the null hypothesis for extra-tropical sea surface temperature anomalies (SSTA). According to this concept, SSTAs quickly responds to the atmospheric heat fluxes at short time period
