    • Analysis of a typical Midwestern structure subjected to seismic loads 

      Hart, Jason Frazier (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      The extent of damage and casualties in Midwest cities such as St. Louis during an earthquake caused by the New Madrid fault system will be due in part to the performance of buildings. Dynamic nonlinear analysis of a ...
    • The Biocomplexity Project 

      Sewell, Christopher Meyer (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      The ultimate goal of the Texas A&M Biocomplexity Project is to numerically and visually simulate a complete chemical mechanism for a simplified cell. It will incorporate the rapidly growing knowledge about cellular ...
    • Frequency of plumbing fixture use through audio sampling 

      Shea, Kevin Bruce (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      Pipe sizing criteria, and thus building water utility connections, are currently based upon a very small statistical sampling of plumbing fixtures performed in the late 1930's. This sampling became the basis for the Hunter ...
    • The interplay between spatially separated ferromagnetic and superconducting thin films 

      Sullivan, Isaac John (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      Ferromagnetic thin films have been grown via physical vapor deposition utilizing the technique of flash evaporation and characterized by measuring magnetization as a function of magnetic field. An Al thin film was evaporated ...
    • Molecularly engineering homogenous catalysts 

      Hughes, Reagan Rebekah (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      A critical issue in the design of new 'Green' recoverable reusable catalyst is the separation strategies used for catalyst recovery. Using materials and solvents that are miscible at elevated temperature but phase separate ...
    • On the relationship between brightness temperature and thunderstorm evolution 

      Rapp, Anita Denise (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      The impact of tropical precipitation on the global energy budget has long been an important topic of investigation. To more accurately assess large-scale heating, we must first understand the small scale cloud processes ...
    • The reaction of Fe and Ni at intermediate energies 

      Liddick, Sean Nicholas (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      Experimentally and theoretically, the affect of isospin on nuclear reactions has been studied intensively. Among the affects that have been observed to affect reactions are neutron number and size of the reaction system. ...
    • Redesign of an isochoric apparatus for P-V-T studies 

      Johansen, Jared Jon (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      Industry and academia require accurate Pressure - Volume - Temperature (P-V-T) relationship data for various mixtures. Equation of state (an equation which models P-V-T relationships) development requires such data. A ...
    • Theoretical study of the photoelectron spectrum of (n5-C5H5)Ni(NO) 

      Miller, Thomas F. (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      The valence photoelectron spectrum of cyclopentadienyl nickel nitrosyl (CpNiNO) was computed to determine the ion state orbital ordering of the 5e1, 7a1, and 3e2 bands. Calculations were performed with Hartree-Fock theory, ...
