    • Collier heights: a neighborhood case study examining the intersection of architecture and racial equality 

      Malino, Jill F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04-29)
      By using the Collier Heights neighborhood in the west side of Atlanta as a case study, this thesis will examine questions which arise at the intersection of architecture and racial equality. Research will focus on the ...
    • Command Shaping for Vibration Reduction in Nonlinear Cabled Systems 

      Blackburn, David F. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07-11)
      Cables are an integral part of many engineering systems; thus, the control of cables and systems containing cables is an important problem to address. This thesis proposes to use command shaping techniques to reduce ...
    • Direct Conversion for Space Solar Power 

      Boechler, Nicholas Sebastian (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-05)
      Space Solar Power (SSP) is a powerful yet nearly untapped resource with revolutionary potential. SSP systems currently have several roadblocks to their implementation. With the technology in use today, converting solar ...
    • Evaluation and automation of space habitat interior layouts 

      Simon, Matthew (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-01-13)
      Future human exploration missions beyond Earth vicinity will be demanding, requiring highly efficient, mass-constrained systems to reduce overall mission costs and complexity. Additionally, long duration transits in space ...
    • A Feasibility Study of Thin-Shell Deformable Mirrors with Adaptive Truss Support for Spaced-Based Telescopes 

      Marzette, Russell K., Jr. (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07-19)
      Space-based telescopes are limit by the payload requirements of existing launch vehicles. Thus, despite distinct advantages the resolution of terrestrial telescopes exceeds space-based telescopes due to larger size and ...
