    • Laser Irradiation of Tumors for the Treatment of Cancer: An Analysis of Blood Flow, Temperature and Oxygen Transport 

      Sood, Ravi; Nahlik, David; Nichols, Weston; Graham, Evan (2007-07-10)
      It has been shown that hypoxic tumor cells are resistant to radiation and that increasing tumor oxygen levels via laser-mediated hyperthermia treatment increases tumor cell radiosensitivity. Hence, studies of the effects ...
    • Life Under the Ice: The Effect of Ice Development on Photosynthetic Submerged Plants 

      Bishop, Sochima; Callahan, Rowan; Sendelbach, Luke (2018-05-10)
      Many submerged plants rely on photosynthesis as a means to obtain sugars and oxygen. Plants that inhabit deeper regions have limited exposure to sunlight, as light irradiance decreases exponentially with increasing distance ...
    • Long Term Flux Profile of Implanon Birth Control Implant 

      Aiwazian, Jonathan; Baker, Courtney; Nissanka, Nadee; Sarker, Upal (2010-05-21)
      Hormonal birth control methods have become increasingly popular since 2000, as the technology becomes more convenient for users, moving from daily pills, to weekly patches, to yearly implants. Implanon is an example of a ...
    • Lord of the Mood Rings 

      Celia, Chan; Yen, Cu; Jessica, Kadlec; Jennifer, Lee (2003-06-17)
      Our main objective is to study the mechanisms by which heat transfer taking place in the human finger will affect the color change in the mood ring. This project uses GAMBIT and FIDAP to model the heat transfer from the ...
    • Lou Albright Reminisces 

      Albright, Louis D.; Scott, Norman R. (Internet-First University Press, 2013-09-04)
    • Lynah Rink: The Science of the Ice 

      Lund, Stephen; Mathew, Esha; Pratt, Kristamarie; Zacherman, Jonathan (2007-07-10)
      Ice hockey is probably the most popular sports team at Cornell, easily selling out tickets to every game at the start of every year. Although eager fans study the team, plays, opponents, and results, it is doubtful that ...
    • Lynne H. Irwin Reminisces 

      Irwin, Lynne H.; Scott, Norman R. (Internet-First University Press, 2013-09-04)
      This video is about Lynne H. Irwin and his stewardship of the Local Roads Program.
    • MacElastic : Instructional Finite Element Analysis for Solving Elasticity Problems With the Macintosh® 

      Cooke, J. Robert; Davis, D. C.; Sobel, E. Ted (Cooke Publications, Ithaca, New York, 1989)
      Finite Element Analysis is a numerical method for solving problems by breaking the physical space into discrete “elements” for which the approximate solution is known. The composite of these finite elements is used to form ...
    • MacPoisson: Instructional Finite Element Analysis for Solving Poisson’s Equation With the Macintosh® 

      Cooke, J. Robert; Davis, D. C.; Sobel, E. Ted (Cooke Publications, Ithaca, New York, 1989)
      Two major obstacles to widespread use of the FEM in the undergraduate curriculum have been addressed by MacPoisson™. First, there has been little finite element software developed specifically for the novice user. Commercial ...
