• #### Surface reconstruction from surface contours ﻿

(1983)
Surface reconstruction from surface contours has become increasingly important in the medical field. Given a set of serial cross sections, it is shown that a structural technique of reconstruction can be developed. The ...
• #### Surface Studies of C60 on Ferromagnetic Ni/Cu(100) and Co/Ru(OOOl) Thin Film Systems ﻿

(2011)
This dissertation determined how the electronic and atomic structure of Ni/Cu(100) and Co/Ru(0001) thin films affect C6O-metal bonding and local magnetic properties at the surface. In-situ spin-averaged and spin-polarized ...
• #### Surface studies using spin-polarized electron energy loss spectroscopy ﻿

(1990)
Spin-polarized electron energy loss spectroscopy (SPEELS) has been used to investigate several paramagnetic surfaces. In this technique, a low energy beam of spin-polarized electrons from a GaAs source is directed at the ...
• #### Surface studies using spin-polarized ion neutralization spectroscopy ﻿

(2000)
Spin-polarized ion neutralization spectroscopy (SPINS), in which a beam of electron-spin-polarized He+ ions is directed onto a surface and analysis is done of the electrons ejected from the surface as a result of ion ...
• #### Surface study of process contamination of plasma spray metal deposition process ﻿

(1996)
The purpose of the present study was to analyze the contamination which resulted from processing steps applied to substrate surfaces for the metal coating process known as plasma spray metal deposition. Additionally, the ...
• #### Surface-immobilized adeno-associated virus nanoparticles for applications in controlled gene delivery and biosensing ﻿

(2011)
Adeno-associated virus (AAV) is a 25 nm replication deficient DNA virus most commonly studied for human gene therapy applications. The work detailed in this thesis investigates the controlled delivery of AAV from surfaces ...

(1968)
• #### Surfactant Enhanced Oil Recovery ﻿

(2015-02-03)
The application of surfactants in Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) is the central theme of this thesis. The use of different EOR methods, thermal, gas flooding, surfactant flooding, etc. to improve the recovery of oil has become ...
• #### Surfactant-enhanced oil recovery process for a fractured, oil-wet carbonate reservoir ﻿

(2005)
Oil recovery by water flooding is usually not effective because of capillary forces in fractured, oil-wet carbonate formations. Sodium carbonate/surfactant solution was used to enhance spontaneous imbibition between the ...
• #### Surfactant/foam enhanced aquifer contacting and modeling for aquifer remediation ﻿

(2006)
Experiments and numerical simulations were carried out to improve the understanding of foam flow in underground porous media, especially three-dimensional foam flow, and to develop a numerical model for the design of the ...
• #### SURFcity ﻿

(2013-09-16)
SURFcity reorganizes, redistributes, and recentralizes the peripheral urban environment of diffuse and urbanized architectures into condensed architectural form. Through surface elaboration and densification techniques, ...

(1973)
• #### Surgery, bordism and equivalence of 3-manifolds ﻿

(1997)
We call two closed, oriented 3-manifolds, $M\sb0$ and $M\sb1,$ HTS-equivalent if there exists a sequence $M\sb{j\sb{i}},\ i = 1..m$ where $M\sb0 = M\sb{j\sb1}$ and $M\sb1 = M\sb{j\sb{m}}$ and $M\sb{j\sb{i}}$ is obtained ...
• #### Survey of results in impartial combinatorial games and an extension to three-player game ﻿

(2001)
There are several known methods to find winning strategies for two-player combinatorial games. This thesis surveys results known for two-player combinatorial games and elucidates a particular winning strategy for a three ...
• #### SURVIVAL OR COMMUNITY: A CRITIQUE OF GARRETT HARDIN'S "LIFEBOAT ETHICS" BASED UPON PAUL TILLICH'S ONTOLOGICAL THEOLOGY ﻿

(1983)
Although specific articles by the biologist Garrett Hardin have been frequently cited there is a lack of critical analysis of them and of his position as a whole. Hardin's position has two basic problems: it holds survival ...
• #### SURVIVORSHIP MODELS FOR SEXUALLY TRANSMISSIBLE DISEASES ﻿

(1980)
Motivated by the type of data naturally generated at Venereal Disease clinics, the author develops a general theory of survivorship analysis of sexually transmissible diseases (STD), with specific reference to estimating ...
• #### Suspended Si Ring Resonator for Mid-IR Application ﻿

(2013-11-22)
Suspended ring resonators formed by both single-mode waveguide (SMW) and multi-mode waveguide (MMW) are designed, fabricated and characterized near 3.4 μm by thermal tuning and near 4.5 μm and 5.2 μm by tunable quantum ...
• #### Sustainability Measurement: A New Evaluation Framework and a Case Study of Houston, Texas ﻿

(2011)
Sustainability thinking has advanced considerably in the last few decades. Despite these advances, there remains a significant disconnect between thoughts and actions in this field. Sustainability metrics are one method ...
• #### Sustainable Production of Biofuels: Plant Optimization and Environmental Impact ﻿

(2012-09-05)
Many recent studies on the relative costs and benefits of biofuels have raised the need for a detailed and rigorous analysis of the operations of a biorefinery that is focused on optimization. The current thesis concentrates ...
• #### Suture and Estrangement in Architecture ﻿
