This research and practice compendium works to question the ways in which relationships with digital objects and digital selves are being naturalized, and more specifically, what is to be done with the dead-digital-data-body ...
Thermal imaging to monitor and enhance sterilization effectiveness with plasma glow by RF induction
This is a comprehensive study on thermal cameras and their application in industrial and medical fields where we cannot use traditional sensors to measure the temperature of the object of interest. This could be inaccessibility ...
Inheritance of molecular orbital energies from monomer building blocks to larger copolymers in organic semiconductors
The thesis at hand was motivated by the somewhat surprising observation that in certain cases, properties of monomer building blocks can be inherited to larger copolymers that contain them, i.e., in these cases the property ...
Low temperature performance of elastomeric bearings in a full size field experimental bridge
Elastomeric bearings have been extensively used as bridge and seismic isolation bearings. Seismic bearings support gravity and earthquake-induced axial loads and can accommodate large lateral displacements. Past experimental ...
Hydraulic linkages to ecosystem integrity: Determining metrics for evaluating in-stream flow conditions and relative shifts in stream ecosystem structure and function
An investigation was made into the connections between ecosystem function and hydraulic conditions in a stream ecosystem impacted by degradation and affected by restoration activities. Stream ecosystem function was measured ...
Calcium Oxalate Crystal Growth in Silica Hydrogels. Influence of pH and Additives
Calcium oxalate is one of the major constituents of kidney and gallbladder stones formed in the human body. In-vivo, these are mineralized in a complex organic matrix consisting of proteins and polysaccharides. The main ...
