Statistical Models Of Runway Incursions Based On Runway Intersections And Taxiways, 2016 Purdue University
Statistical Models Of Runway Incursions Based On Runway Intersections And Taxiways, Mary E. Johnson, Xun Zhao, Brian Faulkner, John P. Young
Journal of Aviation Technology and Engineering
According to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the number of runway incursions are rising. The configuration of runways and taxiways at airports has been identified by the FAA as possibly being related to the number of incursions. In this paper, the relationship between airport geometry factors and the number of runway incursions at specific United States airports is explored using statistical analyses. Airport operations data from the FAA Air Traffic Activity System, runway incursion data from the FAA Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing System from 2009 through 2013, and airport geometry data created using airport geometry features from the ...

Manipulation Of Surface Plasmon Resonance In Metal And Alloy Thin Films Using Dielectric Mediamanipulation Of Surface Plasmon Resonance In Metal And Alloy Thin Films Using Dielectric Media, 2016 Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology
Manipulation Of Surface Plasmon Resonance In Metal And Alloy Thin Films Using Dielectric Mediamanipulation Of Surface Plasmon Resonance In Metal And Alloy Thin Films Using Dielectric Media, Benjamin Dubray Hall
Graduate Theses - Physics and Optical Engineering
Surface plasmon polaritons are coherent electron oscillations that propagate along an interface between a Drude metal and a dielectric medium. The excitation of polaritons is highly dependent on the dielectric properties of the metal, the thickness of the metal, and the optical properties of the dielectric material. First, plasmonic activity is assessed for several thicknesses of silver and nickel chromium under He-Ne incidence. Relationships between film thickness and metal dielectric function are explored in both cases. To manipulate the plasmonic activity at the silver surfaces, two methods are explored. Silver oxide was grown on the surface of the silver films ...

Design Of A Mobile Shade And Cooling Structure For Grazing Dairy Herds, 2016 University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Design Of A Mobile Shade And Cooling Structure For Grazing Dairy Herds, William Barbour, Ellen Moore, Jay Mcmillan
EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement
The U.S. organic dairy industry has experienced significant growth in recent years: over 10% growth annually since 2009 and 14.5% from 2010 to 2011; total market share is approximately 5% in the United States. The USDA places certain requirements on diary products that are certified organic, some of which are aimed at grazing practices. One challenge farmers must overcome to comply is keeping the cows in optimum conditions in a free-range grazing scenario; poor conditions such as excessive heat can decrease milk production and pose an economic burden on the dairy. The proposed system intends to control environmental ...

Decision Making Framework Using Probabilistic Pareto For Sustainable Packaging Life Cycle Assessment, 2016 Rutgers University - New Brunswick/Piscataway
Decision Making Framework Using Probabilistic Pareto For Sustainable Packaging Life Cycle Assessment, Euihark Lee, Huihui Qi, Hae Chang Gea
Journal of Applied Packaging Research
The Packaging industry is one of the largest industries in the world and is associated with many environmental concerns. To reduce its environmental impacts, designing sustainable packaging has been one of the top priorities in packaging industries. A common tools for evaluating the environmental impact of a package design is the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) which provides information on environmental impacts for different indicators. However, making decisions based on the LCA results leaves us with major challenges. First, the LCA tools should consider various uncertainties such as measurement and data quality. Second, the LCA may give conflicting results on different ...

Diffusive Behavior Of Physically Cross-Linked Hydrogels, 2016 University of Akron
Diffusive Behavior Of Physically Cross-Linked Hydrogels, Morgan A. Stilke
Honors Research Projects
A hydrogel is a water swollen polymeric network that has the potential to transform a variety of biomedical applications because of its biocompatibility and water content. Unfortunately, hydrogels typically have poor mechanical robustness. The majority of the content is water, while the remaining structure consists of a physical network, a covalent network, or a combination of both, yielding strength and toughness. There are several strategies attempted to improve mechanical properties including double network hydrogels comprised of two interpenetrating networks: one being a highly crosslinked sacrificial network and the other being a weakly crosslinked network that maintains reversibility after deformation. However ...

Corrosion Protection Systems In Offshore Structures, 2016 University of Akron
Corrosion Protection Systems In Offshore Structures, Hristo Ivanov
Honors Research Projects
Corrosion plays a pivotal role in the engineering world. Engineers of all disciplines must consider the dangers that this phenomenon can incur. Interestingly, corrosion mitigation is not a topic that is addressed in most academic curricula. The goal of this paper is to give engineering students a brief introduction into corrosion and some of the prevention techniques commonly used today.
The design of a corrosion protection system for offshore structures is discussed in order to illustrate how these techniques can be utilized even in the most extreme environments. First, the driving force behind corrosion is examined, introducing the basic mechanics ...
Physical Modeling Of The Atmospheric Boundary Layer In The University Of New Hampshire’S Flow Physics Facility, 2016 University of New Hampshire
Physical Modeling Of The Atmospheric Boundary Layer In The University Of New Hampshire’S Flow Physics Facility, Stephanie Gilooly, Gregory Taylor-Power
Honors Theses and Capstones
The atmospheric boundary layer is the lowest part of the atmosphere, and is defined by a region from the surface of the earth to approximately 500-1000m altitude in which air velocity changes from zero at the surface to the velocity of the wind at a certain altitude. The type of atmospheric boundary layer is characterized by the terrain it encounters, varying from open sea and mud flats to suburban areas and city centers with high- and low-rise buildings. The goal of this project is to generate different types of atmospheric boundary layers for scale model testing in the UNH Flow ...
Perspectives For Low-Carbon Electricity Production Until 2030: Lessons Learned From The Comparison Of Local Contexts In Poland And Portugal, 2015 Wroclaw University of Technology
Perspectives For Low-Carbon Electricity Production Until 2030: Lessons Learned From The Comparison Of Local Contexts In Poland And Portugal, Wojciech Budzianowski, Joao Gomes
This paper compares perspectives for low-carbon electricity production in two EU member states - Poland and Portugal until 2030. Electricity production capacities, carbon emissions of electricity production, and production cost of electricity (COE) of Poland and Portugal are analyzed. The dilemmas of investments into low-carbon electricity production technologies relying on: (i) renewable energy sources (RES), (ii) nuclear fuel, and (iii) fossil fuels integrated with carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) are discussed. Roadmap 2050 recommends about 40% decarbonization of electricity generation by 2030 and 100% by 2050. Based on electricity production mix forecast for 2030 carbon emissions of electricity are estimated at ...

Developing And Testing An Anguilliform Robot Swimming With Theoretically High Hydrodynamic Efficiency, 2015 University of New Orleans
Developing And Testing An Anguilliform Robot Swimming With Theoretically High Hydrodynamic Efficiency, John B. Potts Iii
University of New Orleans Theses and Dissertations
An anguilliform swimming robot replicating an idealized motion is a complex marine vehicle necessitating both a theoretical and experimental analysis to completely understand its propulsion characteristics. The ideal anguilliform motion within is theorized to produce ``wakeless'' swimming (Vorus, 2011), a reactive swimming technique that produces thrust by accelerations of the added mass in the vicinity of the body. The net circulation for the unsteady motion is theorized to be eliminated.
The robot was designed to replicate the desired, theoretical motion by applying control theory methods. Independent joint control was used due to hardware limitations. The fluid velocity vectors in the ...
