Propagation of Vaccinium arboreum by Stem Cuttings for Use as a Rootstock for Commercial Blueberry Production 

Bowerman, Jessica (2012-04-19)
Commercial blueberries, including V. corymbosum and V. ashei, have very specific needs for optimum growth; hence, growing sites are limited. They require acidic soil (pH 4.0-5.5), good drainage, thorough aeration, and a ...

Propeller Design and Optimization Using a Robust Genetic Algorithm and a Computationally Efficient Solver 

Pastor, Grady (2022-03-28)
A computationally efficient and reliable propeller design tool has been constructed using an advanced real coded Genetic Algorithm (GA) and a mid-fidelity potential flow solver. The GA constructs a population of propeller ...

Propeller Performance Analysis and Multidisciplinary Optimization Using a Genetic Algorithm 

Burger, Christoph (2007-12-15)
A propeller performance analysis program has been developed and integrated into a Genetic Algorithm for design optimization. The design tool will produce optimal propeller geometries for a given goal, which includes ...

Properties of Iron-Sulfur Clusters in Heterodisulfide Reductase 

Engel, Carly (2019-07-17)
Global warming is a continuing crisis today. It has caused great damage to our planet and health. One of the leading causes of this issue originates from humans releasing an enormous amount of greenhouse gases into the ...

Properties of Nonmetric Hereditarily Indecomposable Subcontinua of Finite Products of Lexicographic Arcs 

Greiwe, Regina (2009-11-09)
Nonmetric hereditarily indecomposable subcontinua of finite products of Lexicographic arcs are examined. It is shown that these subcontinua cannot intersect certain subsets of the products. Then nonmetric hereditarily ...

A Property Based Approach to Integrated Process and Molecular Design 

Eljack, Fadwa (2007-05-15)
In this work, a new simple yet effective, systematic method to synthesize and design molecules is presented. Visualization of the problem is achieved by employing an annex to the recently developed property clustering ...

A Property of GO-Topologies on the Reals 

Guest, Mark (2019-04-04)
In 1981 Peter de Caux proved that finite powers of the Sorgenfrey line are hereditarily D-spaces. In this paper we build on de Caux's technique to show that any subspace of a finite power of the reals with a generalized ...

Property Value Impacts and Risks Perceptions: A Hedonic Analysis of Anniston, Alabama 

de Parisot, Christophe (2007-05-15)
The city of Anniston, and to a larger extent Calhoun County, Alabama, has been affected by two major types of environmental disamenities: polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) released into the soils and waterways, and the ...

Prophet Without Honor: Hosea Williams and the Anomalies of the Black Freedom Struggle 

Rice, Rolundus (2015-05-18)
Examining the life of civil rights activist Hosea Lorenzo Williams’s life illuminates the entire landscape of the civil rights movement from a different vantage point, broadening the familiar geography and chronology of ...

Proposal and Guide for Development of an Archival Special Collection for the Preservation of the Contributions of Auburn University and its Alumni to NASA and Space Exploration 

Self, David (2013-08-07)
Auburn University, a major research institution, has a long and rich history of engineering scholarship as well as scholarship in the history of technology and aviation. Many graduates of Auburn have gone on to serve the ...

Proposed Improvements to Overlay Test for Determining Cracking Resistance of Asphalt Mixtures 

Ma, Wangyu (2014-04-25)
There is an increasing need in evaluating the cracking resistance of asphalt mixtures as more recycled materials are used in the mixes. A promising method that has been used to evaluate the mixture cracking resistance is ...

Prosodic Characteristics Observed in Verbal Children with Autism 

McAlpine, Ashlynn (2012-04-11)
Children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) exhibit difficulties with the suprasegmental aspects of speech production, more specifically, with prosody. However, there is a paucity of research regarding the perception ...

Prosody: A Taught Means to an End or an End Result? 

Veal, Margo (2011-09-30)
This study investigates the effectiveness of teaching prosody in a readers’ theatre format. Prosody is traditionally defined as an end result that fluent readers inadvertently possess. In that case, struggling readers ...

Protection from Oxidative Stress in the Cardiac H9c2-Cell Line by the Transcription Factor Nrf2 

Gray-Edwards, Heather (2007-08-15)
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the United States, and its prevalence is increasing in all populations and age groups worldwide (71). In 2002 alone, more than 927,000 Americans died from heart ...

Protection or Provocation: Does Hosting a U.S. Military Base Increase the Incidence of Terrorist Attack in a Country? 

Smith, Robert (2010-12-01)
Historically, and particularly since the end of World War II, United States military installations overseas have served to protect the U.S. and the nation hosting the installations against prevailing international threat. ...

Protective Effects of Positive Emotions 

Busler, Jessica (2016-07-27)
This dissertation investigates the protective effects of positive emotions in cognitive and physiological realms. Previous research indicates that positive emotions lead to broader thinking compared to negative emotions ...
