    • Inverse Strategies For Characterization Of Material Properties 

      Aguilo, Miguel (2011-01-31)
      The imaging of constitutive parameters is of interest in many science and engineering fields. Indeed, non-invasive and nondestructive techniques are used to characterize key properties of a system given its response due ...
    • Modeling Of Deformations Of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes 

      Fang, Chao (2012-08-20)
      This thesis presents a study of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) using revised Cosserat rod models. A SWNT is a thin hollow cylinder, with diameter of the order of 1 nm and length possibly as large as 1[MICRO SIGN]m. ...
    • Modeling Sub-Millisecond Laser Spike Annealing Processes 

      Iyengar, Krishna (2012-01-31)
      Laser Spike Annealing (LSA), a non-melt thermal process in the sub-millisecond time regime, has demonstrated significant advantages for ultra-shallow junction formation at the 32 nm and later nodes. A comprehensive approach ...
    • Models For Projectile Impact Into Hybrid Multi-Layer Armor Systems With Axisymmetric Or Biaxial Layers With Gaps 

      Li, Wei (2011-05-29)
      Analytical and numerical modeling of fibrous material resistance to penetration under impact by high-velocity projectiles has been of great interest not only for personnel protection reasons but also because trial-and-error ...
    • Multiphase Transport In Deformable Phase-Changing Porous Materials 

      Dhall, Ashish (2011-01-31)
      The primary aim of this work is mathematical modeling of transport phenomena during processing of food materials. Quantitative information from such models can be used to design food processes that deliver microbiologically ...
    • Nano- and Micro-scale Structures 

      Al Saleem, Fadi M.; Arafat, Haider N.; Chandraseker, Karthick; Craighead, Harold G.; Ghosh, Ranajay; Ilic, Bojan R.; Julien, Scott E.; Krylov, Slava; Liu, Kuo-Kang; Lobontiu, Nicolae; Lupea, Iulian; Mukherjee, Subrata; Ouakad, Hassen; Sahai, Tuhin; Schreiber, David; Seretensky, Shimon; Wan, Kai-tak; Younis, Mohammad I.; Zehnder, Alan (Internet-First University Press, 2008-05)
      IASS-IACM 2008 Session: Nano- and Micro-scale Structures -- Session Organizers: Slava KRYLOV (Tel Aviv Univ.), Alan ZEHNDER (Cornell Univ.) -- Plenary Lecture: Abstract, Slides and Video: "Nanomechanical resonators ...
    • Two-Way Coupling Of Multiphase Transport And Viscoelastic Large Deformation Of Unsaturated Swelling Porous Materials 

      Zhu, Haolin (2012-01-31)
      Multiphase transport in unsaturated swelling porous materials involves fluid mass transport, heat transfer as well as swelling of the porous solid matrix. Neglecting the deformation of the solid matrix can lead to erroneous ...
