• #### 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 ﻿

(2001)
Terahertz Time-Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) techniques have been shown over the last decade to be useful in many diverse applications. This thesis describes the implementation of interferometry in imaging with few-cycle ...
• #### Interferometry of chondrocytes and impact of articular cartilage ﻿

(2006)
Osteoarthritis and the subset of post-traumatic osteoarthritis both represent the end-stage of a degenerative process that can result from an initial tissue insult, particularly from a single mechanical impact. No current ...
• #### INTERINDUSTRY PRICE EFFECTS OF THE WELLHEAD TAX ON CRUDE OIL ﻿

(1980)
The work deals with the problem of changes in the relative prices of industrial outputs due to the imposition of a tax. Furthermore, the imposition of a tax induces changes in all of the components of the input-output ...
• #### Interiors ﻿

(2008)
Interiors, an 8 minute work for symphony orchestra, explores the sonic potential of that medium through expansion of a primary theme. This material is presented in a variety of harmonic settings of increasing complexity ...
• #### Interkingdom Interactions between Candida albicans and Oral Anaerobes in Mixed-Species Biofilms ﻿

(2016-12-02)
Candida albicans is one of the most important commensal fungi in the human body. This fungus is found in physiologically distinct niches such as the mouth, skin, gastrointestinal tract, and genitourinary tract. Candida ...
• #### Interlacing in sequential systems ﻿

(1965)
The application of a bit interlacing or time-spread coding to a class of convolutional codes is considered. Investigation is made into the bit spread distances required to facilitate the decoding of various maximum burst ...
• #### Intermediate phase formation and spontaneous emulsification of hydrocarbon/alcohol/surfactant/water systems ﻿

(1998)
Spontaneous emulsification, intermediate phase formation, and other dynamic behavior were studied for various ternary and quaternary systems containing hydrocarbon, alcohol, surfactant and water, using several experimental ...
• #### Intermediate valence to Kondo behavior in Yb3T4Ge13 and YbT3M7 compounds ﻿

(2017-12-01)
The f-electrons of Ce- and Yb-based compounds hybridize with conduction electrons, resulting in many interesting electronic properties such as heavy fermions, topological Kondo insulators, and superconductivity in the ...
• #### Internal conversion spectra from heavy and medium weight nuclei ﻿

(1960)
Abstract Not Available.
• #### Internal friction studies of halogenated hydrocarbon polymers ﻿

(1975)
The effect of thermal history and mechanical deformation on the internal friction and dynamic shear modulus of polychlorotrifluoroethylene (PCTFE) and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) was studied using a free oscillating ...
• #### Internal velocities in the Orion Nebula ﻿

(2004)
The Orion Nebula (NGC 1976, M 42) is an H II region composed of a slowly expanding thin zone of photoionized gas on the facing side of the Orion Molecular Cloud. The Orion Nebula is also a famous star formation region in ...
• #### International integration: a model for regional integration in developing areas ﻿

(1972)
Despite the attempts of many scholars in the social sciences, no one has yet developed an adequate theoretical model for describing, explaining, or predicting integration efforts in less developed areas. Jacob Viner, the ...
• #### International trade and interstate conflict: The influence of domestic political institutions ﻿

(2002)
Under what conditions does international trade have pacifying or exacerbating effects on militarized interstate conflict? Previous scholars have asserted that rational, aggregate welfare-maximizing leaders will promote ...

(1973)
