Gadolinium-148 and Other Spallation Production Cross Section Measurements for Accelerator Target Facilities
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-03-31)
At the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center accelerator complex, protons are accelerated to 800 MeV and directed to two tungsten targets, Target 4 at the Weapons Neutron Research facility and the 1L target at the Lujan ...
Solubility and phase transitions in batch and laminar-flow tubular crystallizers
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-12-03)
The research addressed in this thesis focuses on monitoring and characterization of pharmaceutical compounds by laser backscattering. In particular, this study covers two topics: (1) the determination of naproxen sodium ...
Securing Access to Wireless Local Area Networks using a Passive Approach to Device Identification
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-04-06)
IEEE 802.11 wireless networks are plagued with problems of unauthorized access. Left undetected, unauthorized access is the precursor to additional mischief. Current approaches to detecting intruders are invasive or can ...
Continued Development of a Cloud Droplet Formation Parameterization for Global Climate Models
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-07-01)
This study presents continued development of the Nenes and Seinfeld (2003) cloud droplet activation parameterization. First, we expanded the formulation to i) allow for a lognormal representation of aerosol size distribution, ...
Constructive Adaptive Visual Analogy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-08-11)
Visual knowledge appears to be an important part of problem solving, but the role of visual knowledge in analogical problem solving is still somewhat mysterious. In this work I present the Constructive Adaptive Visual ...
Fabrication of Atomic Force Microscope Probes Integrated with Microelectrodes for Micro Four-Point Porbe and SECM-AFM
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-01-09)
This research is dedicated to develop novel batch fabrication procedures for two distinct AFM (Atomic Force Microscope) probes integrated with electrodes enabling electrical sample characterization and electrochemical ...
Thin Layers: Physical and Chemical Cues Contributing to Observed Copepod Aggergations
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-11-18)
In the current study, behavioral responses of several species of calanoid copepods to mimics of oceanographic structure were observed and evaluated in the context of foraging and aggregation. Zooplankton distributions in ...
Impact of Particle Morphology on the Rheology of PCC-Based Coatings
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-05-18)
The impact of particle size, size distribution, and particle shape on the rheology of precipitated calcium carbonate (PCC) based coatings was studied. Evaluating the interactions between different particle sizes and shapes ...
Effect of Follower Forces on Aeroelastic Stability of Flexible Structures
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-07-09)
Missile bodies and wings are typical examples of structures that can be represented by beam models. Such structures, loaded by follower forces along with aerodynamics, exhibit the vehicle's aeroelastic instabilities. The ...
Batch scheduling of two-machine limited-buffer flowshop with setup and removal times
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2003-12-01)
