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% ...
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 ...
Design of a harmonic drive test apparatus for data acquisition and control
Harmonic drive gear reducers were developed during the mid-1950's and are used in many industrial and military applications. The harmonic drive is a compact, "in-line" gear reducer capable of producing reduction ratios of ...
Developing an introductory civil engineering course
A new course designed to introduce freshmen to civil engineering and to give non-engineers a taste of engineering was developed and taught. The course is divided into four sections (demand, design, construction, and effects) ...
Sapling growth and recruitment as affected by flooding and canopy gap formation in a river floodplain forest in southeast Texas
I used sapling population data collected since 1980 to investigate how canopy disturbance interacts with chronic understory disturbance to determine regeneration patterns. I reconstructed flooding history using a combination ...
The biodegradation patterns of mixtures of the polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons naphthalene, acenaphthene and fluoranthene in sediments
The biodegradation patterns of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) mixtures were studied in systems with and without sediments. Naphthalene showed no change in its behaviour in the presence of any other PAH. In sediment-free ...
