Technology Potential and Assessment Throughout this technology assessment, the use of composites for vehicles, wind turbines, and compressed gas storage are highlighted as primary examples for clean energy applications where composite materials can have a significant impact. The technology acceptance model (TAM) is an information systems theory that models how users come to accept and use a technology.. The actual system use is the end-point where we want everyone to be able to do with technology, so we have to form Behavioral Intention, which is a factor that leads people to use the behavioral intention (BI) is influenced by the attitude (A) which. This work presents an assessment of classical and state of the art reduced order modeling (ROM) techniques to enhance the computational efficiency for dynamic analysis of jointed structures with local contact by: 3.
