• #### Counterpoint: Understanding forces, reactions, and movement ﻿

(2005)
Counterpoint is an exploration into the relationship between forces and reactions as translated by the material properties of wood, and exploring these relationships within a dynamic system. This relationship is created ...
• #### Coupling a dynamically updating velocity profile and electric field interactions with force bias Monte Carlo methods to simulate colloidal fouling in membrane filtration ﻿

(2009)
Work has been completed in the modeling of pressure-driven channel flow with particulate volume fractions ranging from one to ten percent. Transport of particles is influenced by Brownian and shear-induced diffusion, and ...
• #### Coupling of nanoparticle and metallodielectric grating plasmons ﻿

(2007)
Coupled plasmonic systems have been in the limelight recently for both their interesting fundamental physical properties, and their possible applications in sensing and optoelectrical system integration. Planar plasmonic ...
• #### Coupling of two computational models of the Earth's magnetosphere ﻿

(1997)
The first major step has been completed in a long range project to merge the Fedder-Lyon Global 3D magnetohydrodynamic code and the Rice Convection Model (RCM) of the Earth's magnetosphere. Using MHD results as initial and ...
• #### Coupling surface flow with porous media flow ﻿

(2010)
This thesis proposes a model for the interaction between ground flow and surface flow using a coupled system of the Navier-Stokes and Darcy equations. The coupling of surface flow with porous media flow has important ...
• #### Course Participation, Performance, and Completion by Adult Learners in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC): Trait Complexes, Interest, and Non-Ability Determinants ﻿

(2016-12-01)
The current study examines determinants of course engagement for adult learners registered in a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). It is framed under investment theories of adult intellectual development, which posit that ...
• #### Covalent and non-covalent single wall carbon nanotube chemistries ﻿

(2002)
New methods for covalent functionalization of single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have been developed through fluorinated nanotube material. Nanotube material that had been reacted with elemental fluorine to render a C ...
• #### Covenant Law in the Transformation ofthe Culture of Violence and Revenge: An Interpretation of 2 Kgs 14: 5-6 in the Context of the 1994 Rwanda Genocide ﻿

(2011)
If a Hebrew Biblical text could motivate eighth century B.C.E Israelite society to move a away from the horrendous practice of violence and blood revenge, isn't it possible that the same text can motivate a twenty first ...

(1974)
• #### Covering spaces ﻿

(1959)
Covering Spaces may be studied from several points of view and with respect to many kinds of spaces. The earliest form of covering spaces considered was that of the Riemann surface where the spaces involved are 2-dimensional ...
• #### Covering surfaces ﻿

(1951)
Certain parts of the theory of covering surfaces are treated briefly in the literature as they occur in connection with other topics, but very little has been written on the subject itself, particularly in English. Besides ...

(1982)
• #### Cracking in brittle materials during low-load indentation and its relation to fracture toughness ﻿

(1995)
Nanoindentation is a widely recognized method for characterizing the mechanical properties of thin films and small volumes. This thesis reports the results of an investigation aimed at developing a technique by which the ...

(1969)
• #### Crash motel, perception and process: Machines for people who still walk ﻿

(1995)
"The Machine has not divorced us from nature. By means of the machine, we have discovered a new, previously unanticipated feature of nature."$\sp1$ Human Beings are divine because they participate in the movements of the ...
• #### Creating characters and reconstructing texts: Evaluation in children's oral narrative re-tellings ﻿

(2001)
This research analyzes the use of evaluative features in English language oral narrative re-tellings among a multi-lingual population of ninety-eight 2nd and 4th grade students. The results of the analyses strengthen our ...
• #### Creating Emergency: Hierarchy, Ideology, and Competition in the Humanitarian Network of (Post-)Disaster Port-au-Prince ﻿

(2015-11-10)
I assert that in the months and years following the January 2010 earthquake, the humanitarian ecology in Port-au-Prince was neither a singular apparatus, as it is often called, nor a scattered and uncontained chaos of ...
• #### Creating Selves: An Interdisciplinary Exploration of Self and Creativity in African American Religion ﻿

(2011)
African American religious studies has offered a selective treatment of self. In such discourse, self is equated to a collective identity solely premised upon liberation from multidimensional forms of social oppression, ...
• #### Creating Strontium Rydberg Atoms ﻿

(2013-05-28)
Dipole-dipole interactions, the strongest, longest-range interactions possible between two neutral atoms, cannot be better manifested anywhere else than in a Rydberg atomic system. Rydberg atoms, having high principal ...
• #### Creating the threshold: Between the architectural sublime and the simply terrible (Massachusetts) ﻿

(1993)
The program is the development of a library for Smith College to house the collection of poetic works by Emily Dickinson. The library is the result of an examination of creating an architectural space that generates the ...
