Study of degradation in tunneling oxide thin films in EEPROM and FLASH EEPROM test stuctures
Degradation of the tunneling oxide film in EEPROM and FLASH memory test structures has been studied. Two models have been used to characterize the tunneling induced degradation of the oxide thin film. They are the effective ...
Analysis of testing procedures for determining mechanical properties of composite specimens manufactured with zoned pressure molding
A program of testing various material properties for fiberglass and carbon fiber composites processed using a new proprietary process called Zoned Pressure Molding developed by Stewart Automotive Research (SAR) was developed. ...
Longitudinal magnetic media with soft magnetic under-layers read with magneto-resistive heads
Keepered media refers to traditional magnetic media with the addition of a soft magnetic "keeper" layer adjacent to the recording layer. Numerous recent reports have shown performance improvements associated with keepered ...
Ventricular interaction in a closed-loop model of the canine circulation
A mathematical model of the dynamic interaction between the ventricles over a complete cardiac cycle is presented. The ventricles are modeled as a three-walled system, each of which is individually characterized by a ...
A finite element study of the effects of residual stress on conical indentation
The finite element method has been used to study the behavior of an aluminum alloy during elastic-plastic indentation by a rigid conical indenter to determine how the indentation process is affected by residual stress. The ...
Thermophysical property measurements at high temperatures for liquid metal alloys and gadolinium oxide-doped uranium dioxide samples
New techniques for obtaining various thermophysical properties, i.e., densities and incremental enthalpies of selected materials at high temperatures have been developed with emphasis on the utilization of levitation ...
