      Between the individual and the site exists a philosophical space wherein architecture defines the nature, the edge, of humankind's self understanding. Beyond the philosophical exists the physical reality of humankind's ...
    • Six houses 

      Liu, Dongxiao (2001)
      The series of Six Houses projects offer choices rather than making improvements along the way. The reason for offering these choices is that one choice can not take the place of the other, but rather refers to another. A ...

      The six artists presented in this paper hold important places in the world of the performing arts. Their outstanding talent and perseverance have brought them world recognition. Clara Schumann, the pioneer of women pianists, ...
    • Size analysis of fine material and related size-frequency distributions 

      Krog, Marilyn Kendrick (1963)
      Four groups of naturally-occurring samples were analyzed for size distributions. Four samples with median sizes in the fine sand division (.2-.06mm) graphically approximated a normal distribution. Six samples with median ...
    • Size-Controlled Synthesis of Monodispersed Gold Nanoparticles via Carbon Monoxide Reduction 

      Young, Joseph Keith (2011)
      In this thesis an in depth analysis of nanoparticle synthesis utilizing carbon monoxide as a reducing agent is presented. Synthesized nanoparticle mono and polydispersity was examined via particle distribution profiles, ...
    • Skelton's perspective: the maner of the world 

      Henry, C. Jeanne (1966)
      The popular and still current picture of the poet John Skelton -- scholar, satirist, priest and rogue -- is little, more than a "superficial epitome-effigy" of the man as he appears in his poetry. At the center of his work ...
    • Skirting the house: The evolution of the women's home, 1890-1910 

      Fisher, Kyle Ross (1996)
      Working from the assumption that a distinct women's subjectivity has driven the development of the modern American home, this two part thesis examines the nature of that evolution. The first part shows how a women's ...
    • Skitter 

      Jacobsen, Nicolai Lee (2010)
      Skitter is a modern take on the classic concert overture exemplified by Rossini's La scala di sieta or Berlioz's Le carnival romain. This short piece is in four parts: an energetic fanfare, a melodic pastoral, a frenetic ...
    • Slanty-eyed architecture?: Orientalism and Japanism in the works and writings of Ralph Adams Cram, Greene & Greene, and Frank Lloyd Wright 

      Choi, Don H. (1993)
      Architectural knowledge of Japan, although often implicitly considered to be objective, is the product of personal, political, and subjective circumstances. Ralph Adams Cram's works and writings suggest that the dominant ...
    • Sliding mode control and nonlinear spectra of smart base isolated structures 

      Mao, Yuqing (2002)
      One of the main challenges in structural design is to protect the structures from the damaging effects of destructive environmental forces such as wind loads and earthquakes. In this research, flexibility and energy ...
    • Slip line studies in deformed ordered and disordered Cu3Au single crystals 

      Shaikh, Fasih Ahmed (1970)
      A detailed study of the slip lines in deformed ordered and disordered Cu3Au single crystals has been carried out. The slip lines have been observed via optical metallography and by the two-step replica technique and ...
    • Slow neutrons from a 24 mev betatron 

      Bramblett, Richard Lee (1957)
      Associated with any particle accelerator are always background radiations resulting from interactions of the energized particles with the material of the accelerator. In the case of a betatron, where x-radiation is produced ...
    • Small Cells and Mobile Clients: a Measurement Study of an Operational Network 

      Naribole, Sharan (2014-06-26)
      Small cells address the increasing traffic demands from mobile users and target improved coverage and capacity and better quality of experience to users. This thesis presents the first large-scale measurement study of voice ...
    • Small Gold Nanostruct​ures in Cancer Theranosti​cs 

      Thibodeaux, Christyn A. (2014-04-25)
      The development of small (40-150nm) nanoparticles is of significant interest in biomedicine for effective detection and delivery of therapeutic molecules to diseased cells. The optical exploration of hollow gold nanoshells ...
    • Small Venusian coronae 

      Rupert, Suzanne Tatin (1993)
      The common defining factor of coronae is a distinct annulus of tectonic origin. Current coronae classification is based on an intensive study of coronae primarily with maximum widths in excess of 100 km. Topographically ...
    • Smart cantilever beams for nanomanipulation 

      Chen, Yan (2009)
      A smart micro cantilever beam, consisting of an atomic force microscope probe bonded with a piezoelectric actuator, is proposed to enhance the ability of mechanical nanomanipulation. A precise three-section Euler-Bernoulli ...
    • SmartInhaler : A Platform for Measurement of Inhaler Usage in Asthma Patients 

      Biswas, Rajoshi (2013-12-06)
