Experimental comparison of voting algorithms in cases of disagreement (1997)
Conference Proceeding
Bass, J., Latif-Shabgahi, G., & Bennett, S. (1997). Experimental comparison of voting algorithms in cases of disagreement. . https://doi.org/10.1109/EURMIC.1997.617368

Voting algorithms are used to mask erroneous results from redundant subsystems (variants) in fault tolerant systems. While voting algorithms are well known and widely used, the authors are not aware of any detailed investigation of voter behaviour in...

Design tools for hybrid control systems (1997)
Book Chapter
Hajji, M., Bass, J., Browne, A., & Fleming, P. (1997). Design tools for hybrid control systems. . Springer. https://doi.org/10.1007/BFb0014717

Hybrid systems exhibit a variety of discrete and continuous behaviour. Extensions to the Development Framework, an environment for real-time control system design, are described here. These extensions allow the management of discrete events such as m... Read More about Design tools for hybrid control systems.

The effects of physical characteristics of the environment and feeding regime on the behavior of captive felids (1997)
Journal Article
Lyons, J., Young, R., & Deag, J. (1997). The effects of physical characteristics of the environment and feeding regime on the behavior of captive felids. Zoo Biology, 16(1), 71-83. https://doi.org/10.1002/%28SICI%291098-2361%281997%2916%3A1%3C71%3A%3AAID-ZOO8%3E3.0.CO%3B2-8

The behavior of captive felids is influenced by enclosure design and management regime. The behavior of nine felid species housed in 11 enclosures was recorded using instantaneous scan sampling. Stereotypic pacing was observed in 15 out of 19 individ... Read More about The effects of physical characteristics of the environment and feeding regime on the behavior of captive felids.

Attitude of zoo visitors to the idea of feeding live prey to zoo animals (1997)
Journal Article
Ings, R., Waran, N., & Young, R. (1997). Attitude of zoo visitors to the idea of feeding live prey to zoo animals. Zoo Biology, 16(4), 343-347. https://doi.org/10.1002/%28SICI%291098-2361%281997%2916%3A4%3C343%3A%3AAID-ZOO6%3E3.0.CO%3B2-A

Two hundred UK zoo visitors were asked about their attitudes regarding the feeding of live prey to zoo animals. All visitors agreed with live insects being fed to lizards, providing it was done off-exhibit, and only 4% objected if done on-exhibit. Se...

Technology-based approach for managing large classes : a case study (1997)
Presentation / Conference
Meziane, F., & Kulathuramaiyer, N. (1997, December). Technology-based approach for managing large classes : a case study. Presented at Proceeding of the International Conference on Computers in Education, (ICCE97), Kuching, Sarawak

Educational institutions are faced with many problems. In one hand they face a shortage of staff and funding and at the same time the number of students enrolled is ever increasing. The lecturers are faced with large and sometimes huge classes. Prov... Read More about Technology-based approach for managing large classes : a case study.

Effects of foraging enrichment on the behaviour of parrots (1997)
Journal Article
Coulton, L., Waran, N., & Young, R. (1997). Effects of foraging enrichment on the behaviour of parrots. Animal Welfare Journal, 6(4), 357-363. https://doi.org/10.1017/S0962728600020066

The purpose of this study was to enrich parrot enclosures by creating foraging opportunities appropriate for the species and to investigate the possible preference for a variable versus a constant food supply. The foraging device comprised of a lengt... Read More about Effects of foraging enrichment on the behaviour of parrots.

On the generation of ultra-broad bandwidth light in air at atmospheric pressure (1997)
Journal Article
atmospheric pressure. Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, 30(21), L719-L725. https://doi.org/10.1088/0953-4075/30/21/002

We predict that ultra-broadband light consisting of over 150 distinct frequencies of comparable energy can be generated in air at atmospheric pressure by stimulated Raman scattering using resonant symmetric pumping. Nanosecond input pulses and the hi... Read More about On the generation of ultra-broad bandwidth light in air at atmospheric pressure.

An integrated approach of maintenance tools and techniques to improve manufacturing performance (1997)
Thesis
Wyant, T. An integrated approach of maintenance tools and techniques to improve manufacturing performance. (Dissertation). University of Salford

In todays competitive markets with increasing demands on manufacturers to produce quality products to tight deadlines, the availability of manufacturing plant and equipment is of prime importance. Traditionally, maintenance has often been consider... Read More about An integrated approach of maintenance tools and techniques to improve manufacturing performance.

Testing fault-tolerant systems using a unified error model (1997)
Conference Proceeding
Tyrrell, A., & Bass, J. (1997). Testing fault-tolerant systems using a unified error model. . https://doi.org/10.1109/EMSCNT.1997.658455

This paper presents a method of designing test data based around a unified error model. The model allows error 'surfaces' to be defined for a given application, and used to define a test region(s) that give a measure of test coverage. The paper appli...

Developing a more empirical approach to culture, attitude and motivation in construction management research: a critique and a proposal (1997)
Journal Article
Rooke, J. (1997). Developing a more empirical approach to culture, attitude and motivation in construction management research: a critique and a proposal. Journal of construction procurement, 3(2),

This paper addresses the problem of achieving adequate empirical accounts of culture, motivation and attitudes in construction management research. The usual association of adequacy with objectivity, causality and quantification is criticised and it...
