Applications of circuit analysis computer programs to estuarine pollution problems
This research establishes a method of analyzing the equations that describe pollution problems employing a digital computer program previously in existence, the IBM Electronic Circuit Analysis Program (ECAP). In this ...
The electrodeposition of aluminum
Abstract Not Available.
Laser microspectrofluorometry for the diagnosis of atherosclerosis
Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of death in the U.S., and atherosclerosis, the principle cause of myocardial and cerebral infarctions, accounts for most of these deaths. In current clinical practice, cholesterol ...
Modeling, analysis, and comparative study of several seismic passive protective systems for structures
This thesis is concerned with passive control systems for seismic protection of building structures, with special emphasis on elastomeric bearings, viscous dampers and tuned mass dampers. Both mathematical modeling and ...
Integration of a surcharged pipe model and an overland flow model for flood prediction in a highly urbanized area
Two models were incorporated to evaluate the hydrologic and hydraulic behavior of the Harris Gully watershed in Houston, Texas. A HEC-1 model was created and calibrated to three historical storms for average errors of 6% ...
Three-Dimensional, Time-Dependent Spectral Element Simulations of a Thermocapillary Liquid Bridge with Magnetic Stabilization
The spectral element method is used to obtain 3D, time-dependent solutions for a thermocapillary driven liquid bridge with magnetic stabilization, which arises from the float-zone crystal growth process. The methods and ...
A comprehensive approach to spatial and spatiotemporal dependence modeling
One of the most difficult tasks of modeling spatial and spatiotemporal random fields is that of deriving an accurate representation of the dependence structure. In practice, the researcher is faced with selecting the best ...
A mixed integer nonlinear formulation for improving membrane filtration water treatment plant design
This thesis provides several contributions to the problem of building large-scale membrane filtration water treatment plants needed to meet increasingly stringent drinking water standards. The first contribution is an ...
Interprocedural pointer analysis for C
Many powerful code optimization techniques rely on accurate information connecting the definitions and uses of values in a program. This information is difficult to produce for programs written with pointer-based languages ...
Mitral Valve Organ Culture Provides a Novel Experimental Paradigm
Mitral valve diseases and disorders affect tens of thousands of Americans each year, but understanding of the disease processes has yet to be fully developed. The behavior and characteristics of valve cells and tissue are ...
