Drawing on ideas from turbulent plume theory, a novel solution is presented for buoyant convection from an isolated source in uniform and non-uniform porous media of finite extents. In the former case, the problem is divided into three flow regimes: (i) a negatively-buoyant plume, (ii)...
Quantification of Performance of Wildfire Chemicals using a Custom-Built Sensible Enthalpy Rise CalorimeterDownload
A simple and effective laboratory experiment was developed to investigate the relationship between coverage level, fuel load, and fire intensity for different vegetative fuels. The experiment consisted of a fuel bed consisting of known quantities of fuel load and applied coverage, and an...
Health care organizations are increasingly looking towards information and communication technology to make fundamental changes for quality improvement. Despite numerous potential benefits, the integration of information and communication technology in health care is still hampered by various...
Hot rolled steels are steel alloys manufactured through a very efficient direct rolling process following solidification above the recrystallization temperature. Hot rolled steels have a unique microstructure with relatively high contents of bainite and martensite phases continuously dispersed in...
The atmospheric capture of CO2 was proposed to offset past and future emissions from small distributed sources or past emissions from all sources. The objective of this study is to develop a feasible process to capture 300 Mton of CO2 from the atmosphere, annually, and to integrate the proposed...
Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) from naturally fractured reservoirs (NFR's) involves the injection of external agents into the fracture networks to extract the resident crude oil in the matrix. Characteristically, these agents displace the oil by diffusion (if miscible) or spontaneous imbibition (if...
The purpose of this research was to study the applicability of management system standards (MSSs) in a research and development (R&D)-oriented nanotechnology setting. Since multiple quality and R&D-specific standards were found to be relevant in such environments, a methodology for the...
This thesis aims to develop a motion control strategy for an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) to execute a pursuit algorithm based on a vision based object detection algorithm. This enables a pursuer UAV to follow a target UAV based on images obtained from the onboard camera of the pursuer. The UAV...
