In this thesis, we focus on topics relevant to developing and deploying large-scale wireless sensor network (WSN) applications within real dynamic urban environments. Given few reported experiences in the literature, we designed our own such network to provide a foundation for our research. The...
The social-psychological process involved in using human patient simulators as a teaching/learning modality in undergraduate nursing educationDownload
The use of the high-fidelity human patient simulator (HPS) based clinical scenario in undergraduate nursing education is a powerful learning tool well suited to modern students’ preference for immersive construction of knowledge through the provision of contextually rich reality-based practice...
Construction contributes significantly to gas emissions. Diverse efforts have been undertaken to mitigate the effects of these emissions; however, there currently is no effective tool to estimate small-scale (e.g., project-based) emissions in construction. Discrete-event simulation (DES), a new...
Heterogeneity of surfaces is often included in mathematical treatments of colloid transport and deposition as an afterthought, if at all. Most previous models of colloid transport and deposition have employed idealizations and simplifications such as assuming smooth collector surfaces with...
The Development of Random Generators of Weather and Industrial Pipelines Data using Parametric and Non-Parametric ApproachesDownload
Construction projects are unique and complex in nature. They are associated with many challenges regarding the randomness, complexity, and interdependency related to the operation/process, the environment hosting the operation, and the product being constructed. These challenges are also common...
The Application of Front End Planning and Special Purpose Simulation Templates to Drainage Tunnel ConstructionDownload
The Construction Industry Institute (CII) has a best practice under the heading “Front End Planning” (1995) that is meant to ensure that projects are as complete, as optimized, and as certain as possible throughout the project life cycle. In order to demonstrate this, the Project Definition...
Studying Structure-Nanoaggregation Relations of Polyaromatic Molecules in the Bulk Oil Phase and at the Oil-Water Interface Using Molecular Dynamics SimulationDownload
The detection, identification and characterization of early stage molecular association of polyaromatic molecules into nanoaggregates, where these nanoaggregates represent the first level of molecular clusters or building blocks are critical in areas such as design and fabrication of advanced 3-D...
In the present work, we focused our attention on triacylglycerols. Their phase behavior strongly influences production processes of products based on fats and oils. However, the mechanisms controlling such behavior are not well understood. Hence, we decided to utilize computer simulation to gain...
Interactions between droplets were studied using two lattice Boltzmann methods (LBMs). The Shan-Chen LBM, in which repulsive forces between fluids maintain phase separation, was used to simulate systems with three immiscible components. The simulations demonstrated the three equilibrium...
Computational simulations of a perturbed vortex ring are performed to recreate and understand the instability seen in impacting water droplet experiments. Three initial conditions are tried to respectively trigger a Widnall instability, a Rayleigh centrifugal instability, and a vortex breakdown...
