• #### Interactions of the platelet GP Ib-IX-V complex with immobilized von Willebrand factor under flow conditions ﻿

(1999)
Platelets play key roles in physiology, such as the arrest of bleeding following vascular injury, and in pathology, such as mural arterial thrombosis. The initial step in both processes is platelet adhesion to von Willebrand ...
• #### Interactive parallelization of numerical scientific programs ﻿

(1989)
Parallel computers can provide impressive speedups, but unfortunately such speedups are difficult to realize in actual practice unless the program is written in a way that effectively exploits the parallel hardware. This ...

• #### Interfacial dynamics of liquid droplets and thermophysical property measurement ﻿

(1991)
The interfacial dynamics of a viscous droplet immersed in a viscous medium are considered. The characteristic equation is derived using a normal-mode analysis, and solved for arbitrary, finite fluid properties. The cylinder ...
• #### Interfacial mass transfer in laminar and turbulent liquid films ﻿

(1963)
The problem of mass transport across the free surface of both laminar and turbulent liquid films has been studied. The apparatus used in this work consisted of a plate inclined at an angle of 5° to the horizontal. This ...
• #### Interfacial properties of fluid phases in two dimensions and of three-component surfactant systems ﻿

(1989)
In this thesis, we study two fundamental problems in the theory and experiment of interfaces in simple and complex fluids. The first problem concerns the critical behavior of the thickness of interface of simple fluids in ...
• #### Interfacial Properties of Polymeric Nanomaterials ﻿

(2017-12-01)
Polymeric nanomaterials such as nanoparticles and branched polymers are interfacially active and can be used to stabilize or increase the viscosity of an emulsion, which is potentially useful for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) ...
• #### INTERFACIAL TENSION MEASUREMENT BY SESSILE DROP USING DIGITAL IMAGE PROCESSING ﻿

(1987)
In enhanced oil recovery the displacement of oil is most effective at low interfacial tensions, usuall below 10$\sp{-2}$ dyne/cm. This condition can be achieved by surfactant or chemical flooding but requires accurate ...
• #### Interference-aware protocol enhancements for ad hoc wireless networks ﻿

(2006)
An ad hoc network is an autonomous system of wireless mobile nodes, in which each node forwards packets for other nodes so that nodes out of direct wireless transmission range can communicate. In on-demand routing protocols ...
• #### Interferometric studies of ultrashort pulses ﻿

(1974)
The purpose of this work is to study the evolution of ultrashort pulses in mode-locked pulse trains generated by a Nd: glass laser (at 1.6 microns) mode locked by a saturable absorber. Using an infra-red sensitive image ...
• #### Interferometry in terahertz imaging ﻿
