Mercury is an air pollutant emitted from coal fired power plants. Once released into the environment, mercury undergoes conversion to organomercury compounds, which cause health concerns for both humans and animals. Many studies have been completed with the goal of reducing mercury emissions...
Identification of atomistic mechanisms for grain boundary migration in  twist boundaries: molecular dynamics simulationsDownload
In this thesis, molecular dynamics simulations were performed to characterize the atomic motions governing grain boundary migration in a series of  twist boundaries. Particularly, migrations of a θ=36.87° Σ5, a θ=22.63° Σ13 and a θ=40.23° general high angle  twist boundaries driven by...
In this research, a literature review is conducted for landslide reactivation and movement caused by reservoir water level fluctuation around the world and especially in China in the past decades. Based on the movement patterns and characteristics, landslides triggered by reservoir level...
Tracking and Controlling Persons: Identification for Control in Cognitive Behaviours and Cultural PracticesDownload
This research aims (i) to demonstrate the unity of the phenomena of person identification and control and (ii) to propose the first philosophical theory that uses a single conceptual framework to describe and explain these phenomena. Chapter 1 introduces the philosophical significance of the...
