Office of Sponsored Programs research reports

Pending any Invention Disclosure or Publication Restrictions delays, all Final Reports are submitted to the GT Library. The Library then includes the report in the SMARTech Repository. The SMARTech Repository is publicly accessible database of reports that is searchable via various search engines (Google). This is done to ensure our 501(c)3 not-for profit status by making knowledge generalizable to the public.

  • A proposal for research into the Jacobians of graphs 

    Lipton, Richard; Shokrieh, Farbod (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-12)
    Our potential theory methods allow us to prove some new results about chip-firing games and to give new proofs and/or generalizations of some known results in the subject. We also show that certain ``ad-hoc'' techniques ...
  • Radiation analysis of SiGe HBT devices and circuits 

    Cressler, John D.; Byers, Ken (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-02)
    SiGe HBT technology has generated significant interest in the space community because it effectively marries high-speeds, high levels of integration, and low cost capability, and initial results suggest that SiGe has a ...

    Lacey, Michael (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04)
    This is a final report for the grant DMS-0902259 which supported US-based participants in a program of activity at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM) in Barcelona, Spain. The CRM holds semester long programs of emphasis, ...
  • Regional air quality management aspects of global change: impact of climate-responsive controls and forest management practices on regional air quality and associated uncertainties 

    Russell, Armistead G.; Nenes, Athanasios; Wang, Yuhang (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-12)
    The overarching objective of this study is to provide information as to which global change-related control choices and forest management and utilization practices are most effective for both mitigating climate change and ...
  • Automated guided vehicle survey 

    Christensen, Henrik I.; Trevor, Alexander J. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05)
    Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) are vehicles capable of autonomously navigating their environment. AGVs are used for a variety of applications, such as transportation of materials, forklifts, automation of port operations, ...
  • Qameleon: Hardware/software cooperative automated tuning for heterogeneous architectures 

    Kim, Hyesoon; Vuduc, Richard (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-08)

  • Renewable energy options: Robins AFB 

    Bulpitt, William S. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-02)
    Robins Air Force Base seeks to determine the feasibility and cost effectiveness of utilizing renewable energy sources and technology to meet Robins AFB's energy needs. The Georgia Environmental Facility Authority's Energy ...
  • Dynamic modeling of plasma effects during multi-phase detonations near a surface and/or in a magnetic field 

    Menon, Suresh; Schulz, Joseph (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-12)
    A multi-physics model has been developed to simulate detonations and condensed-phase explosions in the presence of an external electromagnetic field. To simulate these effects, models for high-temperature gas physics, ...
  • Development of compliant free-standing structures for sub 32-nm multi-core ICs 

    Sitaraman, Suresh K.; Swaminathan, Madhavan (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-11)
    With the introduction of on-chip low-K dielectric materials, it is increasingly important to reduce on-chip stresses so that the low-K dielectric material will not crack or delaminate. One way to reduce the thermo-mechanical ...
