  • Dynamic States in Cellular Flames 

    Gorman, Michael (2009-10-08)
    Dynamic States in Cellular Flames, Michael Gorman, University of Houston. A premixed flame on a circular porous plug burner appears a thin (0.5 mm) luminous disk. Premixed flames are distinctive as a dynamical system ...
  • Dynamic Virtual Private Networks 

    Rodeh, Ohad Birman, Ken Hayden, Mark Dolev, Danny (Cornell University, 1998-08)
    We extend traditional Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) with fault-tolerance and dynamic membership properties, defining a Dynamic Virtual Private Network (DVPN). We require no new hardware and make no special assumptions ...
  • Dynamical Automata 

    Tabor, Whitney (Cornell University, 1998-07)
    The recent work on automata whose variables and parameters are real numbers (e.g., Blum, Shub, and Smale, 1989; Koiran, 1993; Bournez and Cosnard, 1996; Siegelmann, 1996; Moore, 1996) has focused largely on questions about ...
  • Dynamical Tides And Oscillations In Star And Planetary Systems 

    Fuller, James (2014-01-27)
    I investigate tidal interactions and global oscillations in various types of stellar and planetary systems, with a focus on dynamical tidal effects. Dynamical tides arise from the excitation of non-hydrostatic waves within ...
  • Dynamically forced cells of a viscoelastic fluid over an array of rollers 

    Liu, Bin; Zhang, Jun; Shelley, Michael (2009-10-17)
    Our fluid dynamics video shows the response of a layer of viscoelastic fluid to an array of four-roll mills steadily rotating underneath. When the relaxation time of the fluid is sufficiently long, the fluid divides into ...
  • Dynamics And Consequences Of Debris From The Irregular Satellites Of The Giant Planets 

    Tamayo, Daniel (2015-01-26)
    Each of the solar system's giant planets host a large population of irregular satellites, small moons on distant orbits that were gravitationally captured early in the solar system's history. Because of the frequent ...
  • The Dynamics And Control Of Flux-Pinned Space Systems: Theory And Experiment 

    Jones, Laura (2012-08-20)
    Advanced space systems are increasingly reliant on close-proximity operations to achieve complex mission objectives on orbit. These maneuvers - such as docking and rendezvous, formation flying, and on-orbit assembly, refit, ...
  • Dynamics And Control Of Gyroscopically Actuated Space-Robotic Systems 

    Carpenter, Michele Deanne (2009-05-22)
    Control-moment gyroscopes (CMGs) are power-efficient, internal momentum actuators that produce high torque for the attitude control of spacecraft. CMGs are proposed for actuating joint degrees of freedom in a spacecraft-mounted, ...
  • Dynamics and Origin of the Irregular Satellites of the Giant Planets 

    Cuk, Matija (2004-12-01)
    Although analytical studies on the secular motion of the irregular satellites have been published recently, these theories have not yet been satisfactorily reconciled with the results of direct numerical integrations. These ...
  • Dynamics and Trajectory Optimization of Morphing Aircraft in Perching Maneuvers 

    Wickenheiser, Adam (2007-09-20)
    Advances in materials, actuators, and control architectures have enabled new design paradigms for unmanned aerial vehicles based on biological inspiration. Indeed, there has been a recent drive to design aircraft features ...
  • Dynamics in Coarse-grained Models for Oligomer-grafted Silica Nanoparticles 

    Hong, Bingbing; Chremos, Alexandros; Panagiotopoulos, Athanassios (The Journal of Chemical Physics, 2012-05-30)
    Coarse-grained models of poly(ethylene oxide) oligomer-grafted nanoparticles are established by matching their structural distribution functions to atomistic simulation data. Coarse-grained force fields for bulk oligomer ...
  • Dynamics Of 3D Coulomb Branches 

    Martone, Mario (2015-01-26)
    In this thesis we focus on the dynamics of Coulomb branches in 3 dimensional N = 2 SUSY theories. The first part of this thesis is dedicated for the most part to a review of previously known results, providing the necessary ...
  • The Dynamics Of A Mantle With A Plume-Fed Asthenosphere -- Method Development And Numerical Experimental Studies 

    Shi, Chao (2012-01-31)
    This dissertation is composed of three studies addressing different but related problems on dynamic processes occurring in a Plume-fed Asthenosphere system, as well as techniques for improving numerical models of mantle ...
  • The Dynamics Of Design-Manufacturing Laptops: How Taiwanese Contract Manufacturers Matter In The History Of Laptop Production 

    Lin, Ling-fei (2015-01-26)
    This dissertation aims to open the knowledge production "black box" of laptop contract manufacturers in Taiwan and their factories in China from 1988 to 2012. By examining their engineering practices, I demonstrate the ...
  • The Dynamics Of Entrepreneurial Human Capital 

    Toth, Russell (2012-01-31)
