• #### Software design for simulation driven optimization ﻿

(2005)
This thesis describes a flexible framework for abstract numerical algorithms which treats algorithms as objects and makes them reusable, composable, and modifiable. These algorithm objects are implemented using the Rice ...
• #### Software distributed shared memory protocols that adapt between single writer and multiple writer ﻿

(1997)
We present two software distributed shared memory protocols that dynamically adapt between a single writer (SW) and a multiple writer (MW) protocol based on the application's sharing patterns. The first protocol adapts ...
• #### Software methods for improvement of cache performance on supercomputer applications ﻿

(1989)
Measurements of actual supercomputer cache performance has not been previously undertaken. PFC-Sim is a program-driven event tracing facility that can simulate data cache performance of very long programs. PFC-Sim simulates ...
• #### Software Support for Efficient Use of Modern Computer Architectures ﻿

(2015-08-14)
Parallelism is ubiquitous in modern computer architectures. Heterogeneity of CPU cores and deep memory hierarchies make modern architectures difficult to program efficiently. Achieving top performance on supercomputers is ...
• #### Software use in the workplace: A study of efficiency ﻿

(2005)
Although existing laboratory research shows that software is often used inefficiently, relatively little is known about (a) how efficiently software is used in a real work environment and (b) the factors that influence the ...
• #### Soil acetate and methane emissions from irrigated rice: The effects of field drainage and cultivar choice ﻿

(1996)
Methane emissions from flooded rice paddies are important contributors to the increasing atmospheric concentrations of methane, a potent greenhouse gas. With an increased need for rice agriculture to feed the growing global ...
• #### Soil moisture modelling, characteristics, and measurement in the Big Thicket (Texas) ﻿

(1996)
A three-fold investigation of soil-water relations in the Big Thicket of East Texas was conducted. This study included an examination of the accuracy and reliability of electronic resistance soil moisture sensors in ...
• #### 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 ...
