Using species' body sizes is a promising avenue for parameterizing food-web models, but such approaches have not yet been able to fully recover observed community dynamics. Such discrepancies suggest that traits other than body size also play important roles. For example, differences in species' use of microhabitat or non-consumptive effects of intraguild predators may affect dynamics in ways not captured by body size. In Laubmeier et al. (2018), we developed a dynamic food-web model incorporating microhabitat and non-consumptive predator effects in addition to body size, and used simulations to suggest an optimal sampling design of a mesocosm experiment to test the model. Here, we perform the mesocosm experiment to generate empirical time-series of insect herbivore and predator abundance dynamics. We minimize least squares error between the model and time-series to determine parameter values of four alternative models, which differ in terms of including vs excluding microhabitat use and non-consumptive predator-predator effects. We use both statistical and expert-knowledge criteria to compare the models and find including both microhabitat use and non-consumptive predator-predator effects best explains observed aphid and predator population dynamics, followed by the model including microhabitat alone. This ranking suggests that microhabitat plays a larger role in driving population dynamics than non-consumptive predator-predator effects, although both are clearly important. Our results illustrate the importance of additional traits alongside body size in driving trophic interactions. They also point to the need to consider trophic interactions and population dynamics in a wider community context, where non-trophic impacts can dramatically modify the interplay between multiple predators and prey. Overall, we demonstrate the potential for utilizing traits beyond body size to improve trait-based models and the value of iterative cycling between theory, data and experiment to hone current insights into how traits affect food-web dynamics.}, number={7}, journal={PLOS ONE}, author={Wootton, Kate L. and Curtsdotter, Alva and Jonsson, Tomas and Banks, H.

One model for ultrasound attenuation in porous media is based on the independent scattering approximation (ISA) and the other model is based on the Waterman Truell (WT) approximation. The microstructural parameters of interest are pore radius and pore density. Attenuation data are simulated for three-dimensional structures mimicking cortical bone using the finite-difference time domain package SimSonic. These simulated structures have fixed sized pores (monodisperse), allowing fine-tuned control of the microstructural parameters. Structures with pore radii ranging from 50 to 100 μm and densities ranging from 20 to 50 pores/mm3 are generated in which only the attenuation due to scattering is considered. From here, an inverse problem is formulated and solved, calibrating the models to the simulated data and producing estimates of pore radius and density. The estimated microstructural parameters closely match the values used to simulate the data, validating the use of both the ISA and WT approximations to model ultrasonic wave attenuation in heterogeneous structures mimicking cortical bone. Furthermore, this illustrates the effectiveness of both models in inferring pore radius and density solely from ultrasonic attenuation data.}, number={1}, journal={JOURNAL OF THE ACOUSTICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA}, author={White, R.

Declines and shifts in community composition of bumble bees (Bombus spp .) have been documented in North America and Europe, with a suite of lethal and sub-lethal effects of pesticides on bumble bee populations documented. We employ a mathematical model parameterized with values taken from the literature that uses differential equations to track bumble bee populations through time in order to attain a better understanding of toxicant effects on a developing colony of bumble bees. We use a delay differential equation (DDE) model, which requires fewer parameter estimations than agent-based models while affording us the ability to explicitly describe the effect of larval incubation and colony history on population outcomes.

Little is known about the underlying mechanisms driving such differences in species responses, creating challenges for determining how best to manage landscapes for maximizing environmental services such as biological control. The present study addresses gaps in our understanding of the link between noncrop vegetation in field margins and pest suppression by using a system of partial differential equations to model population-level predator–prey interactions, as well as spatial processes, aiming to capture the dynamics of crop plants, herbivores and two generalist predators. We focus on differences in how two predators (a carabid and a ladybird beetle) colonize crop fields where they forage for prey, examining differences in how they move into the fields from adjacent vegetation as a potential driver of differences in overall pest suppression.

Precipitated by the build up of extra fat in the liver not caused by alcohol, it is still not understood why steatosis occurs where it does in the liver microstructure in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It is likely, however, that the location of steatosis is due, at least in part, to metabolic zonation (heterogeneity among liver cells in function and enzyme expression). Recently, there has been an influx of computational and mathematical models in order to investigate the relationship between metabolic zonation and steatosis in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. Of interest among these models are "compartments-in-series" models. Compartments-in-series models include the spatial distribution of metabolite concentrations via series of compartments that are connected through some representation of blood flow. In this paper, we analyze one such model, focusing specifically at how the number of compartments and inclusion of dispersion in the flow affect simulation results. We find the number of compartments to have a much larger effect than the inclusion of dispersion, however this is likely due to numerical artifacts. Overall, we conclude that considering partial differential equations that are equivalent to compartments-in-series models would be beneficial both in computation and in theoretical analyses.}, number={3}, journal={MATHEMATICAL BIOSCIENCES AND ENGINEERING}, author={Noorman, Marcella and Allen, Richard and Musante, Cynthia J. and Banks, H.

Despite this, our understanding of ecosystem function in multitrophic communities is poor, and research has been limited to either manipulation in small communities or statistical descriptions in larger ones. Recent advances in food web ecology may allow us to overcome the trade-off between mechanistic insight and ecological realism. Molecular tools now simplify the detection of feeding interactions, and trait-based approaches allow the application of dynamic food web models to real ecosystems. We performed the first test of an allometric food web model's ability to replicate temporally nonaggregated abundance data from the field and to provide mechanistic insight into the function of predation. We aimed to reproduce and explore the drivers of the population dynamics of the aphid herbivore Rhopalosiphum padi observed in ten Swedish barley fields. We used a dynamic food web model, taking observed interactions and abundances of predators and alternative prey as input data, allowing us to examine the role of predation in aphid population control. The inverse problem methods were used for simultaneous model fit optimization and model parameterization. The model captured >70% of the variation in aphid abundance in five of ten fields, supporting the model-embodied hypothesis that body size can be an important determinant of predation in the arthropod community. We further demonstrate how in-depth model analysis can disentangle the likely drivers of function, such as the community's abundance and trait composition. Analysing the variability in model performance revealed knowledge gaps, such as the source of episodic aphid mortality, and general method development needs that, if addressed, would further increase model success and enable stronger inference about ecosystem function. The results demonstrate that confronting dynamic food web models with abundance data from the field is a viable approach to evaluate ecological theory and to aid our understanding of function in real ecosystems. However, to realize the full potential of food web models, in ecosystem function research and beyond, trait-based parameterization must be refined and extended to include more traits than body size.}, number={2}, journal={JOURNAL OF ANIMAL ECOLOGY}, author={Curtsdotter, Alva and Banks, H.

Nowadays, they are frequently used to model fluid flow through biological tissues, cartilages, and bones.

The recent work in [ 12 ] provided a theoretical and numerical analysis of nonlinear poro-elastic and poro-viscoelastic models on bounded domains with mixed boundary conditions, focusing on the role of visco-elasticity in the material. Their results show that higher time regularity of the sources is needed to guarantee bounded solution when visco-elasticity is not present. Inspired by their results, we have recently performed local sensitivity analysis on the solutions of these fluid-solid mixture problems with respect to the boundary source of traction associated with the elastic structure [ 3 ]. Our results show that the solution is more sensitive to boundary datum in the purely elastic case than when visco-elasticity is present in the solid matrix. In this article, we further extend this work in order to include local sensitivities of the solution of the coupled system to the boundary conditions imposed on the Darcy velocity.

Estimating a large number of parameters from the limited information in data may not provide useful knowledge about the ZIKV. Here, we developed a method that utilizes a mathematical model of ZIKV dynamics and the complex-step derivative approximation technique to identify parameters that can be estimated from the available data. Applying our method to epidemic data from the ZIKV outbreaks in French Polynesia and Yap Island, we identified the parameters that can be estimated from these island data. Our results suggest that the parameters that can be estimated from a given data set, as well as the estimated values of those parameters, vary from Island to Island. Our method allowed us to estimate some ZIKV-related parameters with reasonable confidence intervals. We also computed the basic reproduction number to be from 2.03 to 3.20 across islands. Furthermore, using our model, we evaluated potential prevention strategies and found that peak prevalence can be reduced to nearly 10% by reducing mosquito-to-human contact by at least 60% or increasing mosquito death by at least a factor of three of the base case. With these preventions, the final outbreak-size is predicted to be negligible, thereby successfully controlling ZIKV epidemics.}, journal={SCIENTIFIC REPORTS}, author={Rahman, Munsur and Bekele-Maxwell, Kidist and Cates, LeAnna L. and Banks, H.

This paper models the propagation in heterogeneous structures with controlled porosity using a two-dimensional finite-difference time domain numerical simulation in order to measure the frequency dependent attenuation. The paper then fits a phenomenological model to the simulated frequency dependent attenuation by optimizing parameters under an ordinary least squares framework. Local sensitivity analysis is then performed on the resulting parameter estimates in order to determine to which estimates the model is most sensitive. This paper finds that the sensitivity of the model to various parameter estimates depends on the micro-architectural parameters, pore diameter (ϕ) and pore density (ρ). In order to get a sense for how confidently model parameters are able to be estimated, 95% confidence intervals for these estimates are calculated. In doing so, the ability to estimate model-sensitive parameters with a high degree of confidence is established.

Bumble bee populations have been decreasing in recent decades, with demise of flower resources and pesticide exposure being two of several suggested pressures causing declines. Many empirical investigations have been performed on bumble bees and their natural history is well documented, but the understanding of their population dynamics over time, causes for observed declines, and potential benefits of management actions is poor. To provide a tool for projecting and testing sensitivity of growth of populations under contrasting and combined pressures, we propose a delay differential equation model that describes multi-colony bumble bee population dynamics. We explain the usefulness of delay equations as a natural modeling formulation, particularly for bumble bee modeling. We then introduce a particular numerical method that approximates the solution of the delay model. Next, we provide simulations of seasonal population dynamics in the absence of pressures.

This assumption leads to an overconfidence in model parameter values and model based predictions. We propose a novel method which accounts for inter-individual variability in experiments where only unidentified individual data is available. Both parametric and nonparametric methods for estimating the distribution of parameters which vary among individuals are developed. These methods are illustrated using both simulated data, and data taken from a physiological experiment.

In practice, many population censuses are conducted by non-governmental organizations or volunteer citizen scientists who are constrained by fiscal and temporal resources. Less than optimal sampling regimens (characterized by infrequent and/or irregular schedules) for conducting population censuses can result in woefully misleading population estimates – and thus have dire consequences for management and conservation. We illustrate this using an East African case study in which 14 years of bird data was collected in the Arabuko-Sokoke Forest in coastal Kenya. We first estimate life history parameters in a discrete matrix model. Desiring a data collection protocol which would lessen observation error and lend to a deeper understanding of population projections and dynamics of a threatened species, we carry out mathematical and statistical modeling efforts with an adaptation of a Leslie model for simulated population estimates stemming from different population sampling schemes. We illustrate how resource managers might take a strategic approach, using simple quantitative models, to develop an optimal sampling scheme that considers important species traits, such as breeding season, and balances the tradeoff between resources and accuracy.}, journal={ECOLOGICAL MODELLING}, author={Banks, J.

While the approach is applicable to behavior change in eating disorders, smoking, substance abuse and other behavioral disorders, here we present our novel dynamical systems modeling approach to understand the processes governing an individual’s behavior in the context of problem drinking. Recent advances in technology have resulted in large intensive longitudinal data sets which are particularly well suited for study within such frameworks. However, the lack of previous work in this area (specifically, on the interand intra-personal factors governing drinking behavior of individuals) renders this a daunting and unique challenge. As a result, issues which are typically routine in mathematical modeling require considerable effort such as the determination of key quantities of interest, and the timescale on which to represent them. We discuss the construction of an initial mathematical model for two starkly distinct individuals and make a case for the potential for such efforts to help in understanding the underlying mechanisms responsible for behavior change in problem drinkers.

(in Comput. Methods Appl. Mech. Engrg., 190:6685-6708, 2001) for temporally discontinuous Galerkin FEMs applied to a parabolic partial differential equation. In that approach, block systems arise because of the coupling of the spatial systems through inner products of the temporal basis functions. If the spatial finite element space is of dimension D and polynomials of degree r are used in time, the block system has dimension (r + 1)D and is usually regarded as being too large when r > 1. Werder et al. found that the space-time coupling matrices are diagonalizable over [Formula: see text] for r ⩽100, and this means that the time-coupled computations within a time step can actually be decoupled. By using either continuous Galerkin or spectral element methods in space, we apply this DG-in-time methodology, for the first time, to second-order wave equations including elastodynamics with and without Kelvin-Voigt and Maxwell-Zener viscoelasticity. An example set of numerical results is given to demonstrate the favourable effect on error and computational work of the moderately high-order (up to degree 7) temporal and spatio-temporal approximations, and we also touch on an application of this method to an ambitious problem related to the diagnosis of coronary artery disease.

The intracellular dye CFSE is a powerful experimental tool for the analysis of a population of dividing cells, and numerous mathematical treatments have been aimed at using CFSE data to describe an immune response [30,31,32,37,38,42,48,49]. Recently, partial differential equation structured population models, with measured CFSE fluorescence intensity as the structure variable, have been shown to accurately fit histogram data obtained from CFSE flow cytometry experiments [18,19,52,54]. In this report, the population of cells is mathematically organized into compartments, with all cells in a single compartment having undergone the same number of divisions. A system of structured partial differential equations is derived which can be fit directly to CFSE histogram data. From such a model, cell counts (in terms of the number of divisions undergone) can be directly computed and thus key biological parameters such as population doubling time and precursor viability can be determined. Mathematical aspects of this compartmental model are discussed, and the model is fit to a data set. As in [18,19], we find temporal and division dependence in the rates of proliferation and death to be essential features of a structured population model for CFSE data. Variability in cellular autofluorescence is found to play a significant role in the data, as well. Finally, the compartmental model is compared to previous work, and statistical aspects of the experimental data are discussed.}, number={4}, journal={MATHEMATICAL BIOSCIENCES AND ENGINEERING}, author={Banks, H.

The goal in this problem is to maintain the delicate balance between over-suppression (where opportunistic latent viruses threaten the patient) and under-suppression (where rejection of the transplanted organ is probable). First, a mathematical model is formulated to describe the immune response to both viral infection and introduction of a donor kidney in a renal transplant recipient. Some numerical results are given to qualitatively validate and demonstrate that this initial model exhibits appropriate characteristics of primary infection and reactivation for immunosuppressed transplant recipients. In addition, we develop a computational framework for designing adaptive optimal treatment regimes with partial observations and low-frequency sampling, where the state estimates are obtained by solving a second deterministic optimal tracking problem. Numerical results are given to illustrate the feasibility of this method in obtaining optimal treatment regimes with a balance between under-suppression and over-suppression of the immune system.}, number={2}, journal={JOURNAL OF BIOLOGICAL DYNAMICS}, author={Banks, H.

Prompted by this, we described two recent approaches that have been investigated in the literature to describe this growth uncertainty/variability in a physiologically structured population. One involves formulating growth as a Markov diffusion process while the other entails imposing a probabilistic structure on the set of possible growth rates across the entire population. Both approaches lead to physiologically structured population models with nontrivial dispersion.

This methodology relies on finding an approximate large-population behavior of an appropriate scaled stochastic system. The approach leads to a deterministic approximation obtained as solutions of rate equations (ordinary differential equations) in terms of the large sample size average over sample paths or trajectories (limits of pure jump Markov processes). Using the resulting deterministic model, we select parameter subset combinations that can be estimated using an ordinary-least-squares (OLS) or generalized-least-squares (GLS) inverse problem formulation with a given data set. The selection is based on two criteria of the sensitivity matrix: the degree of sensitivity measured in the form of its condition number and the degree of uncertainty measured in the form of its parameter selection score.

We present a new Prohorov metric based theoretical framework that permits one to treat succinctly and rigorously any optimal design criteria based on the Fisher Information Matrix (FIM).

However, the response is dependent on CD4+ T-helper cell 1 (Th1) recruitment and activation. It is this very recruitment of HIV-susceptible target cells that is associated with the initial viral proliferation. Hence, global enhancement of the inflammatory response by T-cells and dendritic cells will likely feed viral propagation. Mucosal entry sites contain inherent pathways, in the form of natural regulatory T-cells (nTreg), that globally dampen the inflammatory response. We created a model of this inflammatory response to virus as well as inherent nTreg-mediated regulation of Th1 recruitment and activation. With simulations using this model we sought to address the net effect of nTreg activation and its specific functions as well as identify mechanisms of the natural inflammatory response that are best targeted to inhibit viral spread without compromising initial antiviral activity. Simulation results provide multiple insights that are relevant to developing intervention strategies that seek to exploit natural immune processes: (i) induction of the regulatory response through nTreg activation expedites viral proliferation due to viral production by nTreg itself and not to reduced Natural Killer (NK) cell activity; (ii) at the same time, induction of the inflammation response through either DC activation or Th1 activation expedites viral proliferation; (iii) within the inflammatory pathway, the NK response is an effective controller of viral proliferation while DC-mediated stimulation of T-cells is a significant driver of viral proliferation; and (iv) nTreg-mediated DC deactivation plays a significant role in slowing viral proliferation by inhibiting T-cell stimulation, making this function an aide to the antiviral immune response.}, journal={JOURNAL OF THEORETICAL BIOLOGY}, author={Wendelsdorf, K. and Dean, G. and Hu, Shuhua and Nordone, S. and Banks, H.

The CC-system carries along the PC-system during instantaneous step deformations. The subsequent relaxation of the PC-system is determined by the configuration of the CC-system, its own configuration and confirmation, and external force fields. Conversely, the deformation of the PC-system acts as an internal variable affecting the deformations of the constraining CC-system. We model the relationship between these processes to derive a model of viscoelasticity in rubber deformation. In developing a relaxation process for the PC-system, we start from the fact that the PC-system is composed of long molecular chains. The dynamics of these molecular chains are developed by modelling them as chains of beads connected by springs, which represent inter-molecular potentials. Various segments of the molecular chains relax at different rates. In addition, variability in relaxation times across molecular chains is permitted.}, number={12}, journal={APPLIED MATHEMATICAL MODELLING}, author={Banks, H. T. and Hood, J. B. and Medhin, N.

These include the role of CD4+ memory cells that serve as a major reservoir of latently infected cells, a critical role for T-helper cells in the generation of CD8 memory cells capable of efficient recall response, and stimulation by antigens other than HIV. A stability analysis illustrates the capability of this model in admitting multiple locally asymptotically stable (locally a.s.) off-treatment equilibria.We show that this more biologically detailed model can exhibit the phenomenon of transient viremia experienced by some patients on therapy with viral load levels suppressed below the detection limit. We also show that the loss of CD4+ T-cell help in the generation of CD8+ memory cells leads to larger peak values for the viral load during transient viremia. Censored clinical data is used to obtain parameter estimates. We demonstrate that using a reduced set of 16 free parameters, obtained by fixing some parameters at their population averages, the model provides reasonable fits to the patient data and, moreover, that it exhibits good predictive capability. We further show that parameter values obtained for most clinical patients do not admit multiple locally a.s off-treatment equilibria.

Many models that are useful for capturing deterministic constant-parameter dynamics are inadequate for dealing with temporally variable life history parameter values typical of many anthropogenic disturbances, including those associated with toxicological insults.

However, a simple modification of the differential equation model with time-varying mortality rates provides a highly accurate fit to aphid population data.

In essence, the SDRE approach involves mimicking standard linear quadratic regulator (LQR) formulation for linear systems. In particular, the technique consists of using direct parameterization to bring the nonlinear system to a linear structure having state-dependent coefficient matrices. Theoretical advances have been made regarding the nonlinear regulator problem and the asymptotic stability properties of the system with full state feedback. However, there have not been any attempts at the theory regarding the asymptotic convergence of the estimator and the compensated system. This paper addresses these two issues as well as discussing numerical methods for approximating the solution to the SDRE. The Taylor series numerical methods works only for a certain class of systems, namely with constant control coefficient matrices, and only in small regions. The interpolation numerical method can be applied globally to a much larger class of systems. Examples will be provided to illustrate the effectiveness and potential of the SDRE technique for the design of nonlinear compensator-based feedback controllers.}, number={2}, journal={COMPUTATIONAL OPTIMIZATION AND APPLICATIONS}, author={Banks, H.

We demonstrate using the key example of treatment strategies for human immunodeficiency virus type-1 (HIV) infection. Although there has been considerable progress in management of HIV infection using highly active antiretroviral therapies, continuous treatment with these agents involves significant cost and burden, toxicities, development of drug resistance, and problems with adherence; these latter complications are of particular concern in substance-abusing individuals. This has inspired interest in structured or supervised treatment interruption (STI) strategies, which involve cycles of treatment withdrawal and re-initiation. We argue that the most promising STI strategies are adaptive treatment strategies. We then describe how biological mechanisms governing the interaction over time between HIV and a patient's immune system may be represented by mathematical models and how control methods applied to these models can be used to design adaptive STI strategies seeking to maintain long-term suppression of the virus. We advocate that, when such mathematical representations of processes underlying a disease or disorder are available, they can be an important tool for suggesting adaptive treatment strategies for clinical study.}, journal={DRUG AND ALCOHOL DEPENDENCE}, author={Rosenberg, Eric S. and Davidian, Marie and Banks, H.

In this technique a travelling acoustic pressure wave in the Debye medium is used as a virtual reflector for an interrogating microwave electromagnetic pulse that is generated in free space. The reflections of the microwave pulse from the air-Debye interface and from the acoustic pressure wave are recorded at a remote antenna. the data is used in an inverse problem to estimate the locally pressure dependent dielectric parameters of the Debye medium. We present a time domain formulation that is solved using finite differences (FDTD) in time and in space. Perfectly matched layer (PML) absorbing boundary conditions are used to absorb outgoing waves at the finite boundaries of the computational domain, preventing spurious reflections from reentering the domain. Using the method of least squares for the parameter identification problem, we compare two different algorithms (the gradient based Levenberg-Marquardt method, and the gradient free, simplex based Nelder-Mead method) in solving an inverse problem to calculate estimates for two or more dielectric parameters.

TCE is a widespread environmental contaminant, and has been shown to produce toxic effects in both animals and humans. A key characteristic of TCE is its tendency to accumulate in fat tissue, which has a major impact on the overall systemic disposition of TCE. Here we use PBPK models to predict the dynamics of TCE in the various tissues and organs, including the adipose tissue. The first model utilizes the standard 'perfusion-limited' compartmental model for the fat tissue, while the second model uses a 'diffusion-limited' model to describe the transport through the adipose tissue. Both of these ODE models are based on 'well-mixed' and rapid equilibrium assumptions, and do not take into account the specific and largely heterogeneous physiology of adipose tissue. The third model we discuss is a PBPK hybrid model with an axial-dispersion type model for the adipose tissue. This PDE-based model is designed to capture key physiological heterogeneities of fat tissue, including widely varying fat cell sizes, lipid distribution, and blood flow properties. Model simulations demonstrate that this model may be well-suited to predict the experimental behavior of TCE in adipose tissue using parameter estimation techniques.}, number={1}, journal={BULLETIN OF MATHEMATICAL BIOLOGY}, author={Albanese, RA and Banks, HT and Evans, MV and Potter, LK}, year={2002}, month={Jan}, pages={97–131} }

Precise control of the film thickness and composition is highly desirable, making real-time control of the deposition process very important. The source vapor species transport is modeled by the standard gas dynamics partial differential equations, with species decomposition reactions, reduced down to a small number of ordinary differential equations through use of the proper orthogonal decomposition technique. This system is coupled with a reduced order model of the surface reactions involved in the source vapor decomposition and film growth on the substrate. Also modeled is the real-time observation technique used to obtain a partial measurement of the deposition process. The utilization of reduced order models greatly simplifies the mathematical formulation of the physical process so that it can be solved quickly enough to be used for real-time model-based feedback control. This control problem is fairly complicated, however, because the surface reactions render the model nonlinear. To deal with this we use a nonlinear feedback control method based on the state-dependent Riccati equation (SDRE). A second SDRE is contained in a state estimator which uses the nonlinear partial observations of the growth process to obtain an estimated state on which to base the feedback control. These nonlinear control techniques are implemented on the HPCVD model, and the results analyzed as to the effectiveness of the reduced order model and nonlinear control at tracking the desired film growth profile.}, number={4}, journal={SIAM JOURNAL ON APPLIED MATHEMATICS}, author={Banks, HT and Beeler, SC and Kepler, GM and Tran, HT}, year={2002}, month={Apr}, pages={1251–1280} }

These patches can act both as actuators and sensors in a selfanalyzing fashion, which is a characteristic of smart materials. A Galerkin method is used to approximate the dynamic response of these structures. The natural frequency shifts due to the damage are estimated numerically and compared to experimental data obtained from tests on cantilever aluminum plate-like structures damaged at different locations with defects of different depths. The damage location and extent are determined by an enhanced least square identification method. Efficacy of the frequency shift based algorithms is demonstrated using experimental data.}, number={10}, journal={JOURNAL OF INTELLIGENT MATERIAL SYSTEMS AND STRUCTURES}, author={Banks, HT and Emeric, PR}, year={1998}, month={Oct}, pages={818–828} }

Our main objective is to ascertain conditions under which the combined systems have classical normal modes.

Two standard derivations of a commonly used expression for the RF heating source term were reviewed. In this context difficulties involving the associated inherent polarization assumption and asymptotic behavior of dielectric parameters as a function of the frequency of the RF signal were discussed. These difficulties cast doubt on the validity of the standard RF expression. Two standard polarization models (Debye and Lorentz) then were used to demonstrate how one can systematically derive general RF heating expressions which do not suffer the inconsistencies that arise in the standard RF expression.}, number={4}, journal={Journal of Microwave Power and Electromagnetic Energy}, author={Banks, H.

Linearization of the PR intensity with regard to the phase factor associated with the SRL results in a good approximation that can be expressed as Rp4 = Rp3 + ΔRp.Rp3 is the reflectivity of the three-layer stack ambient-epilayer-substrate. ΔRp describes the properties of the SRL. An explicit relation is derived between ΔRp(t) and the time-dependent surface concentrations ch(t) (h = 1, 2, …, N) of the constituents of the SRL, which holds for conditions of submonolayer coverage of the surface by source vapor molecules. Under conditions of low temperature PCBE at high flux, the SRL is expected to exhibit nonideal behavior, mandating replacement of the surface concentrations by activities. Also, in this case, the thickness of the SRL must be represented in terms of partial molar volumina Vh. Since the relation between ΔRp(t) and the activities of reactants, intermediates and products of the chemical reactions driving heteroepitaxial growth is non-linear, the extraction of kinetic parameters from the measured time dependence of the PR signal generally requires numerical modeling.}, number={3}, journal={JOURNAL OF CRYSTAL GROWTH}, author={Bachmann, KJ and Sukidi, N and Hopfner, C and Harris, C and Dietz, N and Tran, HT and Beeler, S and Ito, K and Banks, HT}, year={1998}, month={Jan}, pages={323–337} }

In typical systems, the coupling mechanisms are manifested in two ways. The first leads to the transfer of energy from an ambient field to an adjacent structure and is often responsible for exogenous structural excitation. The second involves the transfer of energy from the vibrating structure to an adjacent field. This is the source of structure-borne noise and is ultimately the mechanism through which structural actuators are utilized to attenuate noise. The examples presented here demonstrate that in fully coupled systems, both mechanisms should be incorporated to accurately model system dynamics. The examples also illustrate advantages and limitations of compensators which utilize the accurate modeling of the structural coupling.}, number={2}, journal={JOURNAL OF THE ACOUSTICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA}, author={Banks, HT and Demetriou, MA and Smith, RC}, year={1998}, month={Feb}, pages={872–887} }

As part of our numerical experiments, we compare schemes with a method that employs hybrid B-spline basis elements and a method that employs just one family of B-spline basis elements. We calculate the first four fundamental frequencies and mode shapes of the structure, and we simulate patch-activated vibrations.

While the motivating application involves the reduction of vibration levels for a circular plate through excitation of surface-mounted piezoceramic patches, the general techniques described here will extend to a variety of applications. The initial step is the development of a PDE model which accurately captures the physics of the underlying process. This model is then discretized to yield a vector-valued initial value problem. Optimal control theory is used to determine continuous-time voltages to the patches, and the approximations needed to facilitate discrete-time implementation are addressed.

For example, when piezoceramic actuators are operated under the influence of strong electric fields, it is known that the resulting input–output behavior is hysteretic. Likewise, when shape memory alloys are resistively heated to induce phase transformations, the input–output response at the structural level is also known to be strongly hysteretic. This paper investigates the mathematical issues that arise in identifying a class of hysteresis operators that have been employed for modeling both piezoceramic actuation and shape memory alloy actuation. Specifically, the identification of a class of distributed hysteresis operators that arise in the control influence operator of a class of second order evolution equations is investigated. In Part I of this paper we introduce distributed,hysteretic control influence operators derived from smoothed Preisach operators and generalized hysteresis operators derived from results of Krasnoselskii and Pokrovskii. For these classes, the identification problem in which we seek to characterize the hysteretic control influence operator can be expressed as an ouput least square minimization over probability measures defined on a compact subset of a closed half-plane. In Part II of this paper, consistent and convergent approximation methods for identification of the measure characterizing the hysteresis are derived.}, number={4}, journal={MATHEMATICAL PROBLEMS IN ENGINEERING}, author={Banks, HT and Kurdila, AJ and Webb, G}, year={1997}, pages={287–328} }

In particular, it was demonstrated that the output least squares identification problem for the KP operator is well-posed over compact subsets of the Preisach plane. The identification of the hysteretic control influence operator was shown to be equivalent to the identification of a measure in the space of probability measures taken with the weak* topology. In this paper, a consistent and convergent approximation scheme is introduced for this class of integral hysteresis operator. The Galerkin approximation scheme is shown to be function space parameter convergent.
