On increasing the order and density of 3D finite element meshes
A simple procedure is suggested to increase the order of 3D finite element meshes. The method suggested can be applied to any 3D finite element mesh containing different commonly used 3D element types such as tetrahedron, ...
Shear lag analysis by the adaptive finite element method
The adaptive finite element analysis procedure proposed in Part 1 of this study is employed to solve the shear lag problems for complex plated structures with more general and complex geometries including core walls with ...
Temperature dependence of near ultraviolet photoluminescence in ZnO/(Mg, Zn)O multiple quantum wells
We report on temperature dependence of excitonic photoluminescence (PL) from ZnO/(Mg, Zn)O multiple quantum wells (MQWs). Two kinds of MQWs having different barrier heights grown by laser molecular-beam epitaxy showed ...
The future of the ASEAN regional forum
My attention to this issue was prompted by recent reports that the George W. Bush Administration is re-thinking its relationship to the main regional groupings – ASEAN, the ARF and APEC – as part of a larger review of US ...
Singapore, Malaysia and the Water Issue: A Concern Desecuritised
This paper focuses on one core issue: is Singapore’s water security vulnerable? The answer to that question will determine the prospect for conflict between Singapore and Malaysia over water. In recent years, a number of ...
