• #### __B(p,2_)_He reaction at 163 keV ﻿

(1966)
The 11B (p,2a)4 He reaction at a bombarding energy of 163 kev has been studied at Rice to complement the measurement previously made there at energies of a few Mev. Many 2-parameter spectra have been taken, both around the ...
• #### B(u)y the sea ﻿

(2003)
This thesis proposes an alternative development for the Odaiba reclamation site. This alternative consists of terrain manipulation and modified infrastructure, as well as procedural guidelines. By forgrounding the artificiality ...
• #### Background and early results for the Atmospheric Electrical Current Sensor Project ﻿

(1992)
This thesis describes the background behind and early results from an instrument designed to measure atmospheric electrical currents. Preliminary data presented herein (including the marked similarity in the signals from ...
• #### Background of a stalemate: a study of the development of tactics and weapons prior to World War I ﻿

(1973)
Why, in World War I, did the western front stagnate into trench warfare after six weeks of mobile fighting? One explanation has been that the leaders were blind to the increased power of the defense brought about by the ...

(1960)
• #### Bacteria and fullerene: The microbial response to fullerene water suspensions ﻿

(2008)
The current nanotechnology boom necessitates timely research into the health and environmental impacts of nanomaterials to enhance their eco-responsible manufacture, use, and disposal. Using the water-insoluble C60 as a ...
• #### Bacterial attachment and transport through porous media: The effects of bacterial cell characteristics ﻿

(1995)
The effects of several microbial, chemical and physical parameters on bacterial attachment was studied in batch adsorption and column transport studies. Specifically, the role of bacterial characteristics, ionic strength ...
• #### Baha'ism: History, transfiguration, doxa ﻿

(2010)
Baha'ism originated in nineteenth-century Middle East. As this religious movement developed, it gained adherents outside the Middle East. In Spain, for example, it arrived in mid-twentieth century and gained more adherents. ...
• #### Ballistic limit equation for hypervelocity impact on composite-orthotropic materials ﻿

(2004)
Two new ballistic limit equations for hypervelocity impact on homogeneous and composite-orthotropic materials have been developed for a velocity range above 6 km/s. The methodology used to develop the ballistic limit ...
• #### Ballots, Vote Casting Procedures and Electoral Outcomes ﻿

(2018-03-16)
This research focuses on the overlooked role that ballot design and vote casting procedure have in shaping voters and elite decisions and electoral outcomes. It seeks to understand how the different presentations of the ...
• #### Band evolution and shell structure in large clusters: Aluminum(3-60)anion, copper(1-1113)anion, silver(1-58)anion, and gold(1-223)anion ﻿

(1990)
Photoelectron spectroscopy of negatively, charged clusters of aluminum, copper, silver, and gold reveals electronic shell structure and electron energy band development. Photodetachment experiments on Au$\sb6\sp-$ also ...
• #### BANDED ION MORPHOLOGY (SPACECRAFT CHARGING) ﻿

(1987)
Bands of ions have been observed at constant pitch angle by the Dynamics Explorer High and Low Altitude Plasma Instruments at auroral latitudes. The observed ion dispersion pattern shows lower energy ions toward the ...
• #### Bang-bang control of second order systems ﻿

(1966)
The applicability of the Laplace transformation for the determination of the time optimal control of low order linear stationary systems is presented. The method -- which can be interpreted as requiring a control whose ...
• #### Banner blindness: What searching users notice and do not notice on the World Wide Web ﻿

(1999)
Web designers attempt to draw attention to important links by making them distinctive. However, when users are asked to find specific items, they often overlook these distinctive banners. The irony of this phenomenon I ...
• #### Barcoding tools to track development and function of stem cell constructs for biomedicine ﻿

(2019-04-04)
Biological regeneration has long been explored as a breakthrough modality for human therapy. Degenerative diseases, a majority of which are a related to ageing, manifest as a wide variety of pathologies: cardiovascular ...

• #### Barden to Powell to Perkins: Leadership and evolution of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Education and Labor, 1951-1984 ﻿

(1990)
This study analyzes the leadership and development of a U.S. House of Representatives committee over a thirty-five year period. It treats the leadership of three disparate chairmen--Graham A. Barden (D-NC), Adam Clayton ...
• #### Bargaining and economic coercion: The use and effectiveness of sanctions ﻿

(2007)
We address international economic sanctions from a bargaining perspective and explain the variation in states' decisions to employ economic coercion, in the objectives they pursue through it, and in the level of political ...
