An understanding of the vibration and acoustic properties of cylindrical shells is vital if we are to solve noise problems in a wide range of practical applications, especially those that occur in pipes, ducts, aircraft ...

Some Systems of Ordinary Differential Equations from Cancer Modeling: Qualitative Analysis and Optimal Treatment 

Wan, Xiang (2011-07-25)
In this thesis, we study four systems of ordinary differential equations, which model the interrelationships between different cell populations while tumor cells exist, and treatments, such as immunotherapy, chemotherapy, ...

Some Techniques in the Control of Dynamic Systems with Periodically Varying Coefficients 

Zhang, Yandong (2007-12-15)
The goal of this dissertation is to develop control system design methods for dynamic systems with time periodic coefficients. These systems arise naturally in many branches of science and engineering. As a rule, time ...

Sorority/Fraternity Facilities: Does Type Make a Difference in the Member Experience? 

Hart, Haven (2020-04-20)
The physical environment on a college campus plays an important role in enhancing student learning and positive well-being (Garcia, 2017; Strange & Banning, 2015) and can influence a student’s sense of community and campus ...

Sorption and Biodegradation of Pharmaceutical Compounds in Biological Wastewater Treatment Process 

Yi, Taewoo (2007-12-15)
This study was performed to investigate the removal mechanisms of pharmaceutical compounds (PhACs) in biological treatment processes. The removal efficiencies and byproducts of three model compounds including 17a-ethinylestradiol ...

Sorption of Arsenic by Iron Sulfide Made by Sulfate-reducing Bacteria: Implications for Bioremediation 

Dhakal, Prakash (2008-12-15)
In this study, data from field bioremediation experiments, geochemical modeling, and laboratory batch experiments were integrated with published data on arsenic (As) sorption and coprecipitation onto growing iron (Fe)-sulfide ...

Sorption of Thorium Onto Subsurface Geomedia 

Melson, Nathan Hunter (2011-11-17)
Radionuclide contamination has been a significant environmental problem at US Department of Energy (USDOE) sites for many years. In addition, a final disposal solution for radioactive waste, such as deep geological ...

Sorption/Desorption and Photodegradation of Dispersed Oil Components in Marine Ecosystem 

Zhao, Xiao (2015-08-06)
This effects of a prototype oil dispersant on solubilization, sorption, and desorption of three model Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in sediment-seawater systems were investigated. Increasing dispersant dosage ...

Sorptive Removal of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) from Water by Biochars 

Krebsbach, Samuel (2023-05-01)
This thesis aims to employ biochar (a carbonaceous material) as a cost-effective sorbent to remove per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS) from water by two case studies. Study 1 seeks to identify which biochars perform ...
