Multi-Objective Optimization Of The Molecular Structure Of Refrigerants, Suvrat Bhargava 2010 Florida International University

Multi-Objective Optimization Of The Molecular Structure Of Refrigerants, Suvrat Bhargava

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The aim of this work was to develop a new methodology, which can be used to design new refrigerants that are better than the currently used refrigerants. The methodology draws some parallels with the general approach of computer aided molecular design. However, the mathematical way of representing the molecular structure of an organic compound and the use of meta models during the optimization process make it different. In essence, this approach aimed to generate molecules that conform to various property requirements that are known and specified a priori. A modified way of mathematically representing the molecular structure of an organic ...


Testing Guidelines For New Product Development, Derek W. Egbert 2010 Brigham Young University - Provo

Testing Guidelines For New Product Development, Derek W. Egbert

All Theses and Dissertations

While many literary sources outline the product development process, few make mention of the prototyping and testing stage. This thesis suggests that because of its importance in the product development process, "Testing" should be documented as a major step and not just listed as a side note. As part of the testing step, it is suggested that standardized, in-use, and market tests be used to properly evaluate a product. While many rely solely on standardized tests to validate their products, effective in-use tests can be another vital tool that can prove the performance of the product in more specific and ...

Particle Shape, Type And Amount Of Fines, And Moisture Affecting Resilient Modulus Behavior Of Unbound Aggregates, Debakanta Mishra, Erol Tutumluer, Yuanjie Xiao 2010 Boise State University

Particle Shape, Type And Amount Of Fines, And Moisture Affecting Resilient Modulus Behavior Of Unbound Aggregates, Debakanta Mishra, Erol Tutumluer, Yuanjie Xiao

Debakanta Mishra

This paper presents the application of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) approach to study effects of different aggregate properties on the resilient modulus behavior of unbound aggregates. In a recent research project at the University of Illinois, stress-dependent resilient modulus characterization models, in the form proposed for use by the Mechanistic Empirical Pavement Design Guide (MEPDG), were established for three different aggregate types (dolomite, limestone, and uncrushed gravel) using a statistically well-formulated laboratory test matrix. Such a consistent database enabled the evaluation of the model parameter dependence on different aggregate properties, such as particle shape, type and amount of fines, and ...


Maximum-Likelihood Sequence Detector For Dynamic Mode High Density Probe Storage, Naveen Kumar, Pranav Agarwal, Aditya Ramamoorthy, Murti V. Salapaka 2010 Iowa State University

Maximum-Likelihood Sequence Detector For Dynamic Mode High Density Probe Storage, Naveen Kumar, Pranav Agarwal, Aditya Ramamoorthy, Murti V. Salapaka

Electrical and Computer Engineering Conference Papers, Posters and Presentations

There is an increasing need for high density data storage devices driven by the increased demand of consumer electronics. In this work, we consider a data storage system that operates by encoding information as topographic profiles on a polymer medium. A cantilever probe with a sharp tip (few nm radius) is used to create and sense the presence of topographic profiles, resulting in a density of few Tb per in.2. The prevalent mode of using the cantilever probe is the static mode that is harsh on the probe and the media. In this article, the high quality factor dynamic ...
