      Simon-Gillo, Jehanne E. (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1991)
      A Pb/scintillator sampling calorimeter covering the pseudorapidity interval of n=0.83 to 4.20 has been designed and constructed for Experiment 814 of Brookhaven National Laboratory. The calorimeter uses wavelength shifting ...
    • A continuously weighed pycnometer providing densities for carbon dioxide+ethane mixtures between 240 and 350 K at pressures up to 35 MPa / by 

      Lau, Wing-Wah Robbie (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1986)
      A new, continuously weighed pycnometer has been constructed for fast and accurate density measurements. This apparatus consists of a sample cell that is suspended from an electronic balance at all times. The sample cell ...
    • The deterioration and reliability of pavements 

      Barber, Victor C. (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1978)
      This study utilizes the results of full-scale field and prototype laboratory testing to develop methodology for the prediction of deterioration and assessment of the reliability of pavements. Deterministic equations are ...
    • The effect of traffic induced movement on fresh concrete in widened or replaced bridge decks 

      Fouad, Fouad Hilmy (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1981)
      Bridge traffic in lanes adjacent to a deck that is being widened or replaced causes movements in the fresh concrete deck. A study of the effects of these movements in concrete decks is reported here. An experimental ...
    • An investigation of asphalt-rubber binders for use in pavement construction 

      Shuler, Thomas Scott (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1985)
      Two experimental test roads containing asphalt-rubber interlayers were constructed. Both test pavements were designed as statistical experiments such that future performance analysis could be obtained. Precondition surveys ...
    • Investigation of the effects of oil field traffic on low volume roadways 

      Mason, John M. (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1981)
      The farm to market roads in Texas are designed to provide service for relatively low traffic volumes and infrequent heavy vehicles. Efforts to increase domestic oil production have increased the demand placed on the rural ...
    • Monolithic fully balanced OTA based high frequency filters 

      Peterson, Kirk David (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1987)
      This research involved the development of a design approach and the necessary circuit elements for high-frequency continuous-time monolithic filters to be implemented in a standard CMOS process. The investigation began by ...
    • A multilingual high-level language computer architecture 

      Crews, Phillip Lee (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1977)
      The objective of this dissertation is to describe the design considerations for a computer architecture capable of directly executing multiple high order languages (HOL) thereby eleiminating the need to translate source ...
    • Performance of geologic material under hydraulic stress 

      Cato, Kerry Don (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1991)
      Greater than 20,000 small and medium sized dams use excavated emergency spillway channels to handle flood flows. More than 95% of these dams have never experienced a spillway flow. However, because a great number are less ...
    • A queueing model for the simulation of a port grain elevator 

      LeBlanc, Louis Anthony (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1978)
      Transferring grain from land-based modes of transport to ocean carriers, port elevators represent a substantial portion of the total transportation charges for moving grain from the surplus producing regions of the United ...
    • A respiration modulated air sampling pump 

      Levine, Michael Scot (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1984)
      A device was developed which controls the rate of operation of a portable personal air sampling pump proportional to the rate of inspiration of the wearer. The device was based on the relationship between thoracic impedance ...
    • Self burial of offshore pipelines in fine grained cohesive sediment 

      Ali, Muhammad Amzad (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1977)
      Pipelines laid in soft cohesive sediments may attain burial because of their own weight. Shear strength of the sediment, pipe diameter, specific gravity of the pipe and the submerged unit weight of the sediment are the ...
    • A statistical approach to the development of an improved safety index model for narrow bridges 

      Gandhi, Radhakumari Bodapati Venkata (Texas A&M University. Libraries, 1983)
