• #### Signposts in a Strange Land. (Original composition); (Walker Percy) ﻿

(1994)
Signposts in a Strange Land is a work for string quartet inspired by native Alabama author Walker Percy. Percy's humorously existential novels usually center around a character living with a sense of loss of identity and ...
• #### 'Sikhing' a husband: Bridal imagery and gender in Sikh scripture ﻿

(2003)
Bridal imagery is found in many religions, following the pattern of the soul, gendered female, longing for the male divine Beloved. Rich examples of this imagery are found in the Guru Granth Sahib, the Sikh scripture. Even ...
• #### Silence, Sentimentalism, and the British Romantic Novel, 1789–1824 ﻿

(2015-04-24)
My dissertation argues that silence provides a lens through which we can trace the development of the Romantic novel from the eighteenth century novel. In the eighteenth century, anxieties about female selfhood and identity ...
• #### SILICA PRESERVATION IN THE OCEANS ﻿

(1980)
This study was undertaken to explain why silica is preserved in the oceans, which are undersaturated in silica. Ion probe, electron probe and SEM analysis of the surface chemistry of radiolarians (a siliceous microfossil) ...
• #### SILICOALUMINOPHOSPHATE-5 MOLECULAR SIEVE: CHARACTERIZATION AND CATALYTIC ACTIVITY FOR ALKYLAROMATIC REACTIONS ﻿

(1986)
Highly crystalline silicoaluminophosphate-5 (SAPO-5) was prepared according to a Union Carbide patent. This solid material was characterized by a number of physical techniques and used as a catalyst for several alkylaromatic ...
• #### Silicon microlithography using metastable argon((3)phosphorus(0,2)) atoms ﻿

(1999)
The design and characterization of an intense source of metastable Ar(3P0,2) atoms is described together with its application in the patterning of Si surfaces. Two different approaches to patterning were investigated. In ...
• #### Silicon Photonic Devices for Optical Computing ﻿

(2013-11-26)
The requirement for high performance computer will be significantly increased by the fast development of the internet. However, traditional CMOS computer will meet its bottleneck due to the miniaturization problem. Optical ...

(1966)
• #### Similarity as an organizing principle in primary memory ﻿

(1990)
The role of stimulus similarity as an organizing principle in immediate memory was explored in a series of experiments. Each experiment involved the presentation of a short sequence of items. The items were drawn from two ...
• #### Similarity solutions for density currents ﻿

(1958)
In this thesis, a steady-state hydrodynamic analysis of density currents, or flows of silt-laden sea water adjacent to the bottom of the ocean, is presented. The density current is considered to be analogous to the turbulent ...
• #### Simplicity and complexity through a progressive ordering system ﻿

(2002)
Proportion is a way to perceive a whole world as parts, and to change the parts into a system in terms of human thought. As a relationship between form and number, meaning can be eliminated and then, reinvented by human ...
• #### Simply supported steel I-beams prestressed with horizontal restrained tendons ﻿

(1963)
This study is concerned with the prestressing of rolled sections by means of a tendon which at various points throughout its length is restrained from moving relative to the cross section but is free to move through the ...

(1972)
• #### Simulated impact of NOx on SOA formation from oxidation of toluene and m-xylene ﻿

(2014-04-22)
Despite the crucial role of aromatic-derived secondary organic aerosol (SOA) in deteriorating air quality, its formation mechanism is not well understood, and the dependence of aromatic SOA formation on nitrogen oxides ...
• #### Simulating the driven magnetosphere ﻿

(2005)
A significant effort is focused on understanding the behavior of the Earth's magnetosphere during times of southward interplanetary magnetic field, when the magnetosphere is in a driven state. In situ observations of the ...
• #### Simulating Z' boson going to positron electron events at sqrt.s = 40 TeV to evaluate a proposed silicon-scintillating fiber tracking system for SDC ﻿

(1992)
Computer simulation is used to study the ability of a proposed silicon-scintillating fiber tracking system for SDC to correctly interpret $Z\sp\prime\to e\sp+e\sp-$ events. Two versions of the Lund Monte Carlo model for ...
• #### SIMULATION AND DESIGN OF PUMPING AND INJECTION SCHEMES FOR AQUIFER RESTORATION UNDER VARIABLE HYDROGEOLOGIC CONDITIONS ﻿

(1987)
The USGS MOC Model is a useful tool for evaluating different well patterns in an aquifer restoration scheme under variable hydrogeologic conditions. The best well pattern for a groundwater cleanup is highly site-specific ...
• #### Simulation and Optimization of ESA Designs for Space Plasma Missions ﻿

(2011)
A novel electrostatic analyzer (ESA) simulation method that differs significantly from traditional methods is presented in this study, the "reverse-fly" simulation method. The simulation process and its applications are ...
• #### Simulation of CO2 sequestration in saline aquifers using discontinuous Galerkin method ﻿

(2014-08-01)
Carbon dioxide disposal into deep aquifer has been an important venue to trap excess gas emission which causes global warming. In the CO2 sequestration process, CO2 is captured from the point source and injected into the ...
• #### Simulation of Dislocated Flux in Space Plasma Environments: Applications in Geospace Modeling and Ionosphere-Magnetosphere Coupling ﻿

(2015-04-23)
In this study, simulations of a dislocated flux tube are used to model oscillatory flow events and to explore possible ionospheric-magnetospheric coupling mechanisms. A numerical code called the Thin Filament Code (TFC) ...
