  • Schubert, Peter J.; Vitkin, Lev; Winters, Frank (2006)
    Model-based systems development relies upon the concept of an executable specification. A survey of published literature shows a wide range of definitions for executable specifications [1-10]. In this paper, we attempt to ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Saxena, Roopesh; Pinagapani, Sachi; Gopal, Madana (2006-04-03)
    Through the use of finite-element modeling, pressure patterns on the underside of seat foam can be computed for a variety of occupants and seating positions. A design tool has been created which allows an engineer to ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (David Publishing, 2016)
    Hydrogen fuel cell cars are now available for lease and for sale. Renewable hydrogen fuel can be produced from water via electrolysis, or from biomass via gasification. Electrolysis is power-hungry with high demand from ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (2001)
    Increasing sophistication of electronic safety systems requires more advanced tools for design and optimization. Systems of safety products already being designed are becoming too interdependent to calibrate as stand-alone ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Fu, Y. (TechConnect, 2014)
    Grid-level storage of renewable energy using electrolytes from seawater is a platform technology with multiple byproducts and use-case scenarios. The core application is to provide load-leveling for intermittent sources ...

  • Schubert, Peter J. (2009)
    Agricultural residue, the organic matter left over after grain harvesting, has the potential to replace a large fraction of our petroleum and coal use, making this a significant national benefit. However, agricultural ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Vitkin, Lev; Braun, David (2007)
    Audio playbacks are mechanisms which read data from a storage medium and produce commands and signals which an audio system turns into music. Playbacks are constantly changed to meet market demands, requiring that the ...
  • Kragt Finnell, Abigail J.; Heng, Penghui; Powell, Sawyer H.; Schubert, Peter J. (IEEE, 2019-10)
    Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) from space-to-earth at a large scale will not be possible until the Side Lobe Levels (SLL) are reduced many orders of magnitude from the current technology available today. To accomplish this, ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (Juniper Publishers, 2019-11)
    Extraction of purified metals from extraterrestrial materials can be accomplished in several ways, such as beneficiation, hydrogen reduction, recovery of spent rockets, direct melting of iron meteorites, and plasma isotope ...
  • Kragt Finnell, Abigail J.; Schubert, Peter J. (IEEE, 2019)
    Space-to-earth Wireless Power Transfer (WPT) in large scale will not be allowed unless the side lobe levels (SLL) can be reduced many orders of magnitude lower than the current technology allows. In particular, high SLL ...
  • Schubert, Peter J.; Izadian, Afshin; Wheeler, J. W. (Juniper Publishers, 2019)
    Pumped Storage Hydro (PSH) is geographically limited but can expand greatly if abandoned subsurface coal mines are leveraged for the lower reservoir. Such lands are already permitted, generally less desirable, and found ...
  • Schubert, Peter J. (Juniper Publishers, 2019)
    Thorium on the lunar surface can be transmuted into fissile uranium suitable for a controlled chain reaction to provide heat. Thorium is fertile, requiring bombardment by neutrons to become a suitable nuclear fuel. Oxides ...
  • Vance, David; Razban, Ali; Schubert, Peter J.; Weissbach, Robert (2019-05)
    A simulation tool was developed through MATLAB for comparing Centralized Energy Sharing (CES) and Interconnected Energy Sharing (IES) operating strategies with a standard Stand-Alone Photovoltaic System (SAPV). The tool ...
  • Higbee, Steven; Miller, Sharon (ASEE, 2019-06)
    Relevant and robust biomedical engineering programs integrate challenging, hands-on engineering design projects that require student teams to develop and deliver functional prototypes in response to biomedical design ...
  • Deal, Scott; Smith, Rodney; Meng, Chuiyuan; Vice, Matt (Stony Brook University, 2019)
    Participation in conferences is an elemental component of professional life throughout the world. Two problems offset the social synergy gained from attending a far-away gathering of like-minded people. The first is the ...
  • Hess, Justin L.; Fore, Grant A.; Sorge, Brandon H.; Coleman, M. A.; Price, Mary F.; Hahn, Thomas William (ASEE, 2019-06)
    Ethics continues to be required in the accreditation of engineers. However, ethics is seldom the core focus of departmental instruction. Yet, standard instruction may have myriad impacts on students' ethical development. ...
  • Sorge, Brandon; Feldhaus, Charles (2020)
    Using data from the 2010 Indiana, USA public high school graduating class (N=55612), this project employed a multi-level analysis to determine, what if any differences occurred in majoring in science, technology, engineering, ...
  • Lee, John J.; Souryal, Youssef; Tam, Darren; Kim, Dongsoo; Kang, Kyubyung; Koo, Dan D. (BEIESP, 2019)
    LoRaWAN technology has been here for several years as one of LPWAN technologies. It consists of various components such as end nodes, a gateway, a network server, and an application server at the minimum. The servers have ...
  • Joe, John; Gandhi, Viraj; Dannenhoffer, John F., III; Dalir, Hamid (ARC, 2019)
    Within the aerospace design, analysis and optimization community, there is an increasing demand for automatic generation of parametric feature tree (build recipe) attributed multidisciplinary models. Currently, this is ...
