Recovering elastic moduli of nonlinear anisotropic annular membranes from interior measurements of deformation and pressure
We investigate the problem of inferring elastic moduli of nonlinearly elastic membranes from interior measurements of deformation and pressure. We begin by formulating a model of membrane deformation under a vertical force ...
Estimation of contaminant concentration in ground water using a stochastic flow and transport model
Bioplume II, a widely used computer model developed by researchers at Rice University, models the transport of dissolved hydrocarbons in ground water under the influence of oxygen-limited biodegradation. The model is ...
The future of longleaf pine in a mixed pine-oak forest (Big Thicket, Texas)
A mixed pine-oak stand in the Turkey Creek Unit of the Big Thicket National Preserve was logged in 1929-1930 and has experienced no fires since at least 1974. Stand basal area, density, and species richness increased from ...
A Matlab implementation of the Implicitly Restarted Arnoldi Method for solving large-scale eigenvalue problems
This thesis describes a Matlab implementation of the Implicitly Restarted Arnoldi Method for computing a few selected eigenvalues of large structured matrices. Shift-and-invert methods allow the calculation of the eigenvalues ...
