Climate models show that Bangladesh will experience high rates of change in temperature, precipitation, runoff, and local sea level rise rates by 2100. Sea level rise will result in the degradation of groundwater quality ...

Modeling the Risk of Wrong-Way Driving at Freeway Exit Ramp Terminals 

Atiquzzaman, Md (2019-07-23)
Wrong-way driving (WWD) crashes are a critical safety issue on freeways. Although these crashes are rare in nature, they often result in severe injuries and/or fatalities. Typically, exit ramp terminals are the initial ...

Modeling Water Quality Impacts of Off-Road Vehicles in Forested Watersheds 

Brodbeck, Christian (2005-08-15)
Erosion from off-road vehicles can cause negative effects on water quality by impairing fish habitat and shortening reservoir life. Due to an increasing level of off-road vehicle use throughout the country, this impact ...

Modeling, Analysis, and Validation of Temperature Dependent Vibration Induced Fretting Corrosion 

Ibrahim, Rebecca (2010-04-27)
Connector reliability is an extremely important factor in electronic packaging, especially with regard to vehicle electronics. Two of the major drivers for fretting corrosion are vibration and thermal cycling. Most previous ...

Modeling, Machine Vision Sensing and Material Flow System Definition of Braiding Point Motion 

Ma, Guangli (2011-02-03)
This dissertation is focused on the modeling of one kind of braiding machine and its key part, the carrier. The carrier is a small mass-spring-damping tensioning system, which defines the characteristics and response of ...

Modeling, Validation and Analysis of Degradation Processes of Lithium Ion Polymer Batteries 

Fu, Rujian (2014-07-29)
The lithium ion polymer battery (LiPB) has become one of the most widely used energy storage devices because of its high energy and power densities. However, its performance and life span are limited by the degradation ...

Modelling, Control and Estimation Techniques For Micromachined Electrostatic Actuators Using Macro Magnetic Actuators 

Li, Chong (2016-07-29)
Parallel plate actuators (PPAs) are fundamental devices in micro-electro-mechanical systems. PPAs' main drawback is their limited open loop stable traveling range which is caused by their nonlinear electrostatic force. ...

Models and Solution Approaches for Large-scale Multistage Stochastic Programs with Endogenous or/and Exogenous Uncertainty 

Zuo, Zeng (2020-12-01)
This dissertation aims to develop both models and solution approaches of multistage stochastic programs (MSSP) with endogenous and/or exogenous uncertainty. My work first develops two discrete-time large-scale nonconvex ...

Models Based Practice in Chinese College Physical Education 

Liu, Hairui (2021-05-24)  ETD File Embargoed
Research has supported that Sport Education (Siedentop, 1994; Siedentop, Hastie, Van der Mars, 2020) and Play Practice (Launder, 2001, 2013) in physical education can efficiently promote teaching and learning for both ...

Models for Thermo-Mechanical Reliability Trade-offs for Ball Grid Array and Flip Chip Packages in Extreme Environments 

Hariharan, Ganesh (2007-05-15)
In the current work, decision-support models for deployment of various ball grid array devices and flip chip electronics under various harsh thermal environments have been presented. The current work is targeted towards ...

Models of Moral Treatment: British Lunatic Asylums in the Mid-Nineteenth Century 

Spain, Austin (2018-04-19)
Samuel Tuke established a model of moral treatment for British insane asylums in the first half of the nineteenth century with his Description of the Retreat (1813). The West Riding Pauper Lunatic Asylum at Wakefield—under ...

The Moderating Effect of Attachment Styles on the Relationship between the Ability to Identify Criteria and Interview Performance 

Stuhlman, Melissa (2016-12-12)
The ability to identify criteria (ATIC), which is an individual’s aptitude to correctly gauge performance criteria in a selection context, is an emerging topic of interest in the field of personnel selection. While research ...

Modification and characterization of liquefied biomass-based epoxy resin 

Nan, Wei (2013-07-18)
