Natural Headland Sand Bypassing: Towards Identifying and Modelling the Mechanisms and Processes

Mohd Shahrizal Bin Ab Razak
September 01, 2015

This study contributes to the understanding of the mechanisms and processes of sand bypassing in artificial and non-artificial coastal environments through a numerical modelling study. Sand bypassing processes in general is a relevant but poorly understood topic. This study attempts to link the...

Data Fusion Mathematics: Theory and Practice

Jitendra R. Raol
August 27, 2015

Fills the Existing Gap of Mathematics for Data Fusion Data fusion (DF) combines large amounts of information from a variety of sources and fuses this data algorithmically, logically and, if required intelligently, using artificial intelligence (AI). Also, known as sensor data fusion (SDF), the DF...
