Journal of the Korea Academia-Industrial cooperation Society, volume 13, issue 10, 2012, Pages 4371~4377
DOI : 10.5762/KAIS.2012.13.10.4371
In this paper, the structure-fluid coupled analysis is carried out in order to examine the cause of the vibration induced by fluid in the pressure-reducing valves for water. It is confirmed that there is the noise at the area of low frequency of 250Hz by measuring noise at pressure reducing valve. The flow analysis is performed by the commercial software ANSYS/CFX. The flow velocity of about 40 m/s is formed by nozzle effect, and so negative pressure is happened in the pressure reducing valve. The structure analysis is carried out with the load condition of pressure distribution by flow formed in valve. The rubber material at disk is deformed to the extent of closing up flow passage. It is confirmed that the disc deformation which is occurred repeatedly is due to noise and vibration at the pressure reducing valve.

Journal of the Korea Academia-Industrial cooperation Society, volume 13, issue 10, 2012, Pages 4411~4417
DOI : 10.5762/KAIS.2012.13.10.4411
The present study proposes the optimization of wing structure base on reduced model which assures the solution accuracy and computational efficiency. Well-constructed reduced model assures the accurate result in the eigenvalue problem, dynamic analysis or sensitivity of design optimization. Reduced system is classified into the reduce-order model based on structural modes and the reduced system based on degrees of freedom. Because this study uses the reduced system based on degrees of freedom, it is important to select the dominant degrees of freedom properly. For this work, robust selection method, two-level selection scheme, is employed and IRS(Improved Reduced System) is applied to construct the final reduced system. In the optimization process based on the reduced system, all of the equivalent stress, eigenvalue and design sensitivities are calculated from the reduced system. Through a numerical example, it is shown that the present optimization methodology based on the reduction method can provide an optimal results for objective function satisfying constraint condition.
On Modeling the PBL Process and the ILS Development from a Life Cycle View with Resultant Enhanced Interrelationship
Ju, Hyun-Jun ; Lee, Jae-Chon ;
Journal of the Korea Academia-Industrial cooperation Society, volume 13, issue 10, 2012, Pages 4418~4425
DOI : 10.5762/KAIS.2012.13.10.4418
The demand on applying the performance-based logistics (PBL) in the operational phase of the weapon systems development is increasing these days. Therefore, the enhancement of the PBL concept and process needs to be done. This is the objective of the paper. As a method of approach, a modeling method is adopted to cover the whole life cycle of the weapon systems development from the concept development to the operation. The modeling results for the PBL process yield an useful suggestion for improvement. Also, by analyzing the interrelationship model between the PBL process and the integrated logistics support (ILS) procedure, it is possible to take advantage of the PBL concept in the ILS elements development, which is usually carried out from the beginning of the development phase, a lot earlier than the operational phase. Note that the PBL concept has been restrictively applied in only the supply support among many ILS elements up until now. However, the results obtained in the paper can make it also possible to consider the availability, reliability, logistics support, cost and so on from the early phase of the weapon systems development.
Simulation Method for Playing Complex Polyrhythm
Kim, Hyounjong ;
Journal of the Korea Academia-Industrial cooperation Society, volume 13, issue 10, 2012, Pages 4426~4431
DOI : 10.5762/KAIS.2012.13.10.4426
Though polyrhythm is definitely a complex form of rhythm as we all know, some forms of polyrhythm(for example, `2 against 3` or `3 against 4`) are considered as simple rhythm compared with others such as `5 against 4` or `7 against 4`. It is because this kind of polyrhythm might be used as often as enough to be able to be understood and to be played. However, the polyrhythm that we are talking about in this study(I`d like to call them as complex polyrhythm) is not able to be played by someone who is not familiar with quintuplets or septuplets. Here I would like to suggest a new way of playing polyrhythm, called the `Simulation Method`. The main purpose of this method is to easily approach the complex polyrhythm by using its mathematical similarity even though these polyrhythms are originally hard to be played due to its mathematical complexity.
Artistic Value and Art Price: A Comparison between Auction and Non-auction Markets
Shin, Hyung-Deok ; Kim, Tae-Hwang ; Kim, Myung-Soo ; Kim, Young-Sun ;
Journal of the Korea Academia-Industrial cooperation Society, volume 13, issue 10, 2012, Pages 4432~4439
DOI : 10.5762/KAIS.2012.13.10.4432
Previous studies on art pricing mostly focused on auction data because of the limitation of non-auction market data. This study investigated on both auction and non-auction markets to see the difference in art pricing mechanisms of both markets. Especially, while prior hedonic models included only quantatative variables to predict art prices, we added a qualitative measure, artistic value of a artwork, along with the original hedonic model to develop a more comprehensive model, and tested if his change may make more precise predictions. As a result, when we did not divide our data into auction and non-auction groups, we did not find any significant difference between the original hedonic model and the new model including artistic value. However, when we separated non-auction group from auction group, we found that predicted prices in the new model showed significantly closer values to the actual prices. This study contributes to our knowledge on art pricing by showing that artistic value may have important but differential impacts on different art dealing channels.

This study aimed to investigate pain, perceived exercise barriers, and related factors in arthritis patients. The study was conducted on 140 arthritis patients (89 rheumatoid arthritis patients and 51 osteoarthritis patients) who visited C University Hospital in Daejeon due to arthritis and agreed to participate in a survey. The self-administered survey was conducted from February 2011 to September 2011. The results are as follow. The perceived exercise barriers increased in both groups as the education level and monthly household income decreased. In the rheumatoid arthritis group, the pain became more intense as the self-rated health status became poorer while the perceived exercise barriers became more significant as the self-rated health status became poorer and the patients had other diseases besides arthritis. In the osteoarthritis group, the pain was greater as the duration of arthritis was longer and the self-rated health status became poorer. In both groups, the perceived exercise barriers became more significant as the exercise stage approached the pre-planning stage. The results of the multiple linear regression analysis showed that the most influential factor on pain in both groups was the `very bad` self-rated health status. In the rheumatoid arthritis group, influential factors on the perceived exercise barriers were the exercise stage and the education level while for the osteoarthritis group, they were the exercise stage and the monthly household income. In conclusion, the results of this study showed that the pain and perceived exercise barriers of arthritis patients were associated with various factors such as the education level, monthly household income, self-rated health status, and exercise stage, which suggests that these factors should be considered in the planning of exercise programs.

This study was aimed at the relationship between peak EMG amplitude on low back muscles acting on L5/S1 and load center of gravity, trunk lateral bending while lifting an object. Musculoskeletal disorders including low back pain can occur even when handling heavy objects only once as well as when doing non-heavy materials repeatedly. 11 male subjects with average 23 age were required to lift a 15.8kg object symmetrically three times. Peak EMG amplitudes on 6 muscles related with L5/S1 were recorded and analyzed. The lifting conditions consisted of lifting symmetric load with no trunk lateral bending, asymmetric load with no trunk lateral bending, and asymmetric load with trunk lateral bending to the load center of gravity within an object. The results showed that peak EMG amplitude on back muscles contralateral to load center of gravity was observed greater in comparison with the symmetric load. Also, in case of lifting asymmetric load the posture with trunk lateral bending increased peak EMG amplitude on muscles contralateral to load center of gravity more than with no trunk lateral bending. This research can be used as one administrative intervention in order to reduce the low back pain incidence with suggesting workers that they keep the trunk not bending to load center of gravity if possible when lifting a heavy asymmetric object.

We investigated to compare the effects of a low intensity eccentric exercise and dynamic stretching on symptoms of delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). The eighteen women who had not participated in a regular exercise programme for the lower extremities in the previous five months were randomly assigned to one of three experimental groups: control group, a low intensity eccentric exercise group and dynamic stretching group. We measured the joint range of motion (ROM), maximal voluntary isometric exercise (MVIC), muscle soreness rating scale and ultrasound image measurement before eccentric exercise inducing DOMS, and 24, 48, and 72 hours after an eccentric exercise inducing DOMS. The exercise programme in a low intensity eccentric exercise group and dynamic stretching group were respectively performed 3 times a week for 4 weeks before eccentric exercise inducing DOMS. There was significantly different between the groups in muscle soreness rating scale and MVIC (p<.05). However, there was not significantly different between groups in ultrasound image measurement and ROM (p<.05). These results suggest that a low intensity eccentric exercise group and dynamic stretching group effectively reduced muscle soreness rating scale out of the symptoms of DOMS. A low intensity eccentric exercise group may be an effective improvement than dynamic stretching group in muscle soreness rating scale.

In a recent mobile computing environment, the research for a transaction model have been actively carried out to deal with real-time transaction. However, the research for recovery model is relatively insufficient. Therefore, it would be very important for mobile recovery methods for database stability, just in case of data loss due to hand-off in mobile computing system. So, further efficient research should be keenly done to reduce I/O hand-off in mobile computing systems. SLL method increases I/O time due to sequential file. This paper have been suggested to efficient mobile recovery method in mobile computing system. Finally, it has been clearly demonstrated for system efficiency, conducting the performance assessment that currently proposed recovery system.

Many researches have been performed to resist buffer overflow attacks. However, the attack still poses one of the most important issue in system security field. It is because programmers are using library functions containing security hole and once buffer overflow vulnerability has been found, the security patches are distributed after the attacks are widely spreaded. In this paper, we propose a new cache level return address stack architecture for resisting buffer overflow attack. We implemented our hardware onto SimpleScalar simulator and verified its functionality. Our circuit can overcome the various disadvantages of previous works with small overhead.

Since the existing methods of segmenting target objects from various images mainly use 2-dimensional features, they have several constraints due to the shortage of 3-dimensional information. In this paper, we therefore propose a new method of accurately segmenting target objects from three dimensional stereoscopic images using 2D and 3D feature clustering. The suggested method first estimates depth features from stereo images by using a stereo matching technique, which represent the distance between a camera and an object from left and right images. It then eliminates background areas and detects foreground areas, namely, target objects by effectively clustering depth and color features. To verify the performance of the proposed method, we have applied our approach to various stereoscopic images and found that it can accurately detect target objects compared to other existing 2-dimensional methods.

An e-passport is equipped with bio information by adding the non-attachable IC chip with a smart function. In order to solve such a problem, the user`s privacy is protected by using the BAC, PA, AA and EAC mechanisms. However, the password key used in the BAC mechanism is made of the combination of the MRZ values. As a result, it is possible to decode the password by using the indiscriminate attacking program after finding out the combined rules of MRZ. This thesis suggests the mechanism with an improved level of efficiency through the time-stamp values by using the information of images and fingerprints and checking the forge or falsification of the e-passport when establishing a safe channel between the chip of the e-passport and the decoding system.

During the 2000s there were changes in the educational facility policy having impact on school architecture, such as departmental classroom system by the 7th national curriculum and BTL projects. Especially for secondary school architecture with the new keyword of `departmental classroom system` unlike elementary school with the well-known keyword of `open classroom`, the emergence of new school architecture was anticipated. For these reasons it is worth while to notice secondary school architecture in the 2000s and this study aims to review the architectural characteristics of middle schools as first step. Cases of 18 schools selected by EDUMAC were analyzed focused on site planning and planning characteristics of each spaces. Through the analysis, the architectural characteristics of middle schools in the 2000s are summarized and comments on some problems are made. In summary, case schools have typical characteristics of Korean school architecture in unit classrooms and block plan for daylight condition. On the other hand, they have more diversity in space organization and facility program. But it leave something to be desired in expressing urban architectural characteristics, traditionality and locality with searching for new school architecture.

This study was designed to assess the factor of influence to occupational stress who work in the field of firefighters and questionnaire was uesd to analyse the stress scores and find the primary factors influence to occupational stress. The number of respondents were 408 who received the refresher training and period of investigation was august 2011 through october 2011. A structured questionnaire was employed to evaluate the participants` socio-demographics, job-related factors, health-related behaviors, occupational stress, reaction factor (fatigue, job satisfaction) and buffer factor (social support). Occupational stress and fatigue were assessed using the Korean Occupational Stress Scale-Short Form (KOSS-SF) and the Multidimensional Fatigue Scale (MFS), respectively. The analysis showed that we found a strong correlation between fatigue, job satisfaction and occupational stress. Occupational stress was associated with an increased risk of fatigue and decreased the job satisfaction. In the multiple regression analysis(stepwise), main factor that influence to occupational stress were job satisfaction, gender, age, processing number for a day, exercise. In logistic regression analyses, a higher occupational stress was associated with higher odds of fatigue(High) and the odds was down by 15.0% after adjustment for job satisfaction, gender, age, processing number for a day, exercise. Thus, a job satisfaction promote program for the reduction of occupational stress and the promotion of firefighters`s health is strongly recommended.
