A model of clocked electric field inputs for molecular quantum-dot cellular automata.
Quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA) is a low-power, high-speed, beyond- CMOS approach to general-purpose computing . Elementary devices called “cells” are implemented using mixed-valence molecules with redox centers ...
Optimizing multi-agent dynamics for underwater tactical applications.
Large groups of autonomous agents, or swarms, can exhibit complex emergent behaviors that are difficult to predict and characterize from their low-level interactions. These emergent behaviors can have hidden implications ...
Design, analysis and simulation of a new current controller for wind power generation system using proportional plus resonance control.
This thesis presents design, analysis and simulation of a new current control scheme for wind power generation system (WPGS). Proportional plus resonance (PR) controller is proposed to improve the accuracy of the control ...
Adaptive load impedance optimization for power amplifiers in reconfigurable radar transmitters.
A fundamental tradeoff exists in radar transmitter design between linearity and efficiency due to the signal amplification. These transmitters are driven into saturation in order to increase efficiency, but may potentially ...
Correlation of skin friction and convective heat transfer on surfaces with realistic roughness variations.
Ice accretions can considerably degrade the in-flight performance and safety of an aircraft. Increases in aerodynamic drag and decreases in lift and stall angle of attack limit aircraft maneuverability, and can destabilize ...
An explicit electron-vibron model for olfactory inelastic electron transfer spectroscopy.
The vibrational theory of olfaction was posited to explain subtle effects in the sense of smell inexplicable by models in which molecular structure alone determines an odorant’s smell. Amazingly, behavioral and neurophysiological ...
Linear stability analysis of Mach 10 nitrogen flow over 7-deg half-angle cones.
Linear stability theory (LST) analysis was performed on Mach 10 7-degree half-angle straight cones in nitrogen for comparison with experimental results obtained in the Arnold Engineering Development Complex (AEDC) Hypervelocity ...
The General Linear Group of GF(2)^4
This technical report lists all 4x4 matrices over GF(2). Each matrix is listed along with its order and its inverse. At the end is a summary of the number of matrices belonging to each order.
Robust geolocation techniques for multiple receiver systems.
The purpose of this thesis is to investigate signal processing algorithms that allow multiple moving receivers to locate a stationary emitter. This problem has received considerable attention over the past 50 years, yet ...
The use of the flexural modulus in the comparison of fiber orientation models for concentrated suspensions in short fiber-filled thermoplastics.
Advances in modeling spatially varying fiber orientation within an injection molded thermoplastic composite part have led to better structural designs and manufacturing efficiencies by optimizing mold designs and processing ...
