  7. High Fidelity Modeling of Building Collapse with Realistic Visualization of Resulting Damage and Debris

    SBC: Thornton Tomasetti, Inc.            Topic: DTRA082005

    An approach for performing high fidelity modeling for blast and progressive collapse simulations of buildings will be developed. The modeling approach will allow complete simulations of building response to be performed within several days of computing time on desktop PCs. An 'easy to use' modeling interface will also be demonstrated in this effort. All response regimes will be addressed includi ...

  8. Advanced Prediction Methods for Augmentative Communication

    SBC: ENKIDU RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) devices can provide an effective avenue of communication for individuals with communicative disabilities. A core component of many AAC systems is dynamic word prediction, in which a list of probable words is autonomously generated and presented for immediate user selection. Current word prediction systems employ algorithms which do not take full a ...
