• #### Soil-structure interaction effects of simple structures supported on rectangular foundations ﻿

(1992)
This thesis deals with the effects of soil-structure interaction, both kinematic and inertial, on the responses of seismically excited rectangular foundations and simple structures supported on such foundations. The ground ...
• #### Solar plasma disturbance observed by a suprathermal ion detector on the moon ﻿

(1972)
An interplanetary plasma disturbance was observed from the Moon by the Rice University Suprathermal Ion Detector Experiment (SIDE) on November 19, 1970 starting at 00h 16min 37sec U.T. The time of observation after the ...
• #### Solar wind control of the open magnetosphere: Comparison of GGS/polar images and theory ﻿

(2001)
This investigation explores the connection between the open polar cap magnetic flux phiPCF and interplanetary conditions. phi PCF is determined from GGS/Polar VIS Earth Camera far ultraviolet observations of the aurora ...

(1976)
• #### Solid phase direct fluorination ﻿

(1991)
In 1970, solid phase direct fluorination, using modern flow control techniques, was pioneered in the laboratories of John Margrave. Modern direct fluorination is rooted in these developments. The direct fluorination of ...
• #### Solid solution formation kinetics----A preliminary study for CaCO3/BaCO3 and BaSO4/SrSO4 system ﻿

(2013-12-05)
The formation kinetics of CaCO3/BaCO3 and BaSO4/SrSO4 solid solution systems is studied in this research. A CaCO3-precoated stainless steel plug flow reactor is developed to study the CaCO3/BaCO3 system. Ba2+ is found to ...
• #### Solidarity with outsiders: The quest for common ground in theological ethics ﻿

(1992)
Definitions of solidarity multiply as religious communities respond to concerns of the marginalized and the oppressed. Roman Catholic social teaching and Sharon Welch's communicative ethics are compared with the communitarian ...
• #### Solidarity, responsibility, and freedom: Health care reform in the United States at the millennium ﻿

(2003)
The current crisis in the distribution of health care resources in the U.S. derives largely from insufficient access to health care, on the one hand, and inadequate control of rising costs, on the other hand. The response ...
• #### SOLIDIFICATION OF BINARY MIXTURE IN A FINITE PLANAR MEDIUM ﻿

(1985)
A model describing the one-dimensional heat transfer and solute redistribution during a planar solidification of a binary mixture in a finite medium, insulated and nonpermeable at one boundary, and subject to thermal ...
• #### Solubility and rheological examination of buckminsterfullerene in decalin and PSVS ﻿

(1996)
The structure-property relationships of C$\sb{60}$ dissolved in decahydronaphtalene (decalin) and a petroleum solvent viscous standard (PSVS) were studied. This work was motivated mainly by the interest to improve fullerene ...
• #### Solubility, length characterization, and cryo-TEM of pristine and functionalized single-walled carbon nanotubes in surfactant and superacid systems, with application to spinning SWNT fibers ﻿

(2010)
Single wall carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) have remarkable properties: the thermal conductivity of diamond, the electrical conductivity of copper, and mechanical properties greater than steel at a sixth of the weight. If these ...
• #### Solubilization, purification and characterization of ME31B, a putative RNA helicase ﻿

(1996)
ME31B, a putative RNA helicase belongs to the DEAD box family. A subclass of the DEAD box family is growing around ME31B. The members are DHH1 (S. cerevisiae), ste 13 (S. pombe), and rck/p54 (human and murine). In a conserved ...
• #### Solubilization-emulsification processes in nonionic surfactant-water-liquid triglyceride systems ﻿

(1994)
Liquid triglycerides, the major component of cooking oils, have been found difficult to remove from synthetic fabrics during washing. The relatively strong adhesion force between triglycerides and fabric and their high ...
• #### Solution chemistry of phosphino-polycarboxylic acid (PPCA) at high ionic strength and high temperature ﻿

(1997)
Phosphino-polycarboxylic acid (PPCA) and its modified types have the potential to be used as multifunctional inhibitors and they have advantages over unifunctional inhibitors in performance, thermal stability, dispersancy ...
• #### Solution of large-scale Lyapunov equations via the block modified Smith method ﻿

(2007)
Balanced truncation is an attractive method for reducing the dimension of medium-scale dynamical systems. Research in recent years has brought approximate balanced truncation to the large-scale setting. At the heart of ...
• #### Solution of the Fokker-Planck Equation by Sequentially Optimized Meshfree Approximation ﻿

(2014-02-20)
This thesis presents a technique to solve the Fokker-Planck equation by applica- tion of the Sequentially Optimized Meshfree Approximation (SOMA) method. It is well known that numerical solution of the Fokker-Planck equation ...
• #### SOLVING COMPUTATIONAL GEOMETRY PROBLEMS ON MESH-CONNECTED COMPUTERS ﻿

(1987)
Parallel algorithms to solve several computational geometric problems on mesh-connected computers (MCC's) and systolic arrays are designed and analyzed. We present parallel MCC algorithms to solve the following proximity ...
• #### Solving structured 0/1 integer programs arising from truck dispatching scheduling problems ﻿

(1993)
A branch-and-cut IP solver is developed for a class of structured 0/1 integer programs arising from a truck dispatching scheduling problem. This problem is characterized by a group of set partitioning constraints and a ...
• #### Solving very large scale school/student assignment problems ﻿

(1994)
Currently, the Houston Independent School District has approximately 175 elementary schools providing education for more than 110,000 students. A question of major logistical impact is how to assign students to schools in ...
• #### Solvothermal Synthesis and Supported Catalysis of Polyanion-derived Metal Oxide Nanoparticles ﻿
