    • Citation Databases for Legal Scholarship 

      Beatty, John (Taylor & Francis, 2020-03-19)
      Traditional citation sources, such as Web of Science, index limited numbers of law journals. Consequently, although not designed for generating scholarship citation metrics, many law scholarship citation studies use ...
    • Contact Dynamics Modeling and Simulation of Tether Nets for Space-Debris Capture 

      Botta, Eleonora M.; Sharf, Inna; Misra, Arun K. (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2016-11-23)
      A proposed method for containing the growth of space debris, which jeopardizes operation of spacecraft, is the active debris removal of massive derelict spacecraft and launcher upper stages by means of tether nets. The ...
    • Energy and momentum analysis of the deployment dynamics of nets in space 

      Botta, Eleonora M.; Sharf, Inna; Misra, Arun K. (Elsevier, 2017-09-06)
      In this paper, the deployment dynamics of nets in space is investigated through a combination of analysis and numerical simulations. The considered net is deployed by ejecting several corner masses and thanks to momentum ...
    • Experiments and simulation of a net closing mechanism for tether-net capture of space debris 

      Sharf, Inna; Thomsen, Benjamin; Botta, Eleonora M.; Misra, Arun K. (Elsevier, 2017-07-17)
      This research addresses the design and testing of a debris containment system for use in a tether-net approach to space debris removal. The tether-net active debris removal involves the ejection of a net from a spacecraft ...
    • Hard Saying: Language and Teaching in Augustine and Kierkegaard 

      Kicey, Michael (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2014-07-15)
      When we teach, what are we actually doing with words? Our everyday way of talking and thinking about teaching tends to call upon the resources of two distinct models. Although we rarely make our tacit understanding of these ...
    • How to become a “Kwa” noun 

      Good, Jeff (Springer Netherlands, 2012-03-21)
      An important problem of comparative Niger-Congo morphology is understanding the processes that relate word structures in languages of the isolating “Kwa” type to those of the agglutinating “Bantu” type. A salient sub-problem ...
    • Ice sheet influence on atmospheric circulation explains the patterns of Pleistocene alpine glacier records in North America 

      Tulenko, Joseph P.; Lofverstrom, Marcus; Briner, Jason P. (Elsevier, 2020-01-27)
      We explore the hypothesis that the relative size of Pleistocene ice sheets in North America modulated regional climate and alpine glaciation. We compare Pleistocene alpine glacier chronologies across North America with a ...
    • Local flow topology and velocity gradient invariants in compressible turbulent mixing layer 

      Vaghefi, N.S.; Madnia, C.K. (Cambridge University Press, 2015-06-04)
      The local flow topology is studied using the invariants of the velocity gradient tensor in compressible turbulent mixing layer via direct numerical simulation (DNS) data. The topological and dissipating behaviors of the ...
    • Maximum Southwest Greenland Ice Sheet recession in the early Holocene 

      Lesnek, A.J.; Briner, J.P.; Young, N.E.; Cuzzone, J.K. (American Geophysical Union, 2020-01-03)
      Establishing the timing of maximum Holocene warmth in the Arctic is critical for understanding global climate system response to external forcing. In Greenland, challenges in obtaining climate records that span the full ...
    • On the Simulation of Tether-Nets for Space Debris Capture with Vortex Dynamics 

      Botta, Eleonora M.; Sharf, Inna; Misra, Arun K.; Teichmann, Marek (Elsevier, 2016-03-02)
      Tether-nets are one of the more promising methods for the active removal of space debris. The aim of this paper is to study the dynamics of this type of systems in space, which is still not well-known and the simulation ...
    • Road to Nowhere: The Mobility of Oedipus and the Task of Interpretation 

      Kicey, Michael (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2014-04-01)
      This article draws on a close reading of the language of Sophocles’ Oedipus Tyrannus to explore how the text problematizes concepts of place, space, and movement through the ambiguous figure of Oedipus. Considering Oedipus’ ...
    • Simulation of tether-nets for capture of space debris and small asteroids 

      Botta, Eleonora M.; Sharf, Inna; Misra, Arun K. (Elsevier, 2018-07-26)
      One of the most promising techniques to capture large debris on orbit consists in the use of tether-nets. With this concept currently at a medium technological readiness level only, numerical studies on tether-net removal ...
