Success through Academic Recognition (STAR): Sustaining and Expanding UHCL and SJC TWD Computer Science Scholar Program
(The third annual Texas Engineering and Technology Consortium Best Practices Conference, 2008-02)
(Water Environment Research, 2008)
conducted experiments to track variations in natural organic matter (NOM) and bromide (Br-) through various treatment processes (coagulation, sand filtration, ozonation, and biological activated carbon [BAC]) comprising a ...
Photoddegradation of Methyl tert-butyl Ether (MTBE) by UV/H202 and UV/TiO2
(Journal of Hazardous Materials, 2008)
Two UV-based advanced oxidation processes (AOPs), UV/H2O2 and UV/TiO2, were tested in batch reactor systems to evaluate the removal efficiencies and optimal conditions for the photodegradation of methyl tert-butyl ether ...
A Proactive Distance aided Flooding Technique for MANETs with Heterogeneous Radio Ranges
(IEEE Conference Paper, 2008)
Recently, many flooding techniques for Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) have been proposed. However, most of these techniques assume that every node in the network has the same transmission range. Therefore, these techniques ...
Dispersion Characterization of Nanoclay in Molded Epoxy Disks by Combined Image and Electron Microbeam Analysis
(Journal of Engineering Materials and Technology, 2008)
The state of nanoclay dispersion in a molded epoxy disk and its effects on the thermo-mechanical properties of the resulting nanocomposite are analyzed. A commercially available nanoclay, Cloisite® 25A, is mechanically ...
Filtration and Breakdown of Clay Clusters During Resin Transfer Molding of Nanoclay/Glass/Epoxy Composites
(Journal of Composite Materials, 2008)
Dispersion of nanoclay clusters during resin transfer molding of nanoclay/glass/epoxy disks is investigated. In addition to a center-gated disk containing only 14% glass fibers, three nanocomposite disks are fabricated ...
Effect of Nanoclay Content on Void Morphology in Resin Transfer Molded Composites
(Journal of Thermoplastic Composite Materials, 2008)
Effects of nanoclay content on morphology and spatial distribution of voids in resin transfer molded nanoclay/E-glass/epoxy composite disks are investigated. Closite®25A nanoclay loads of 2, 5, and 10wt% are mixed by ...
Design and Fabrication of a Microfluidic Pressure Inverter,” Andrew K. Palican
(ASME 2008 International Design Engineering Technical Conferences & Computers and Information in Engineering Conference, 2008-08-03)
Fluidic inverters, or venturi effect vacuum pumps, are commonly used in industrial components that provide a point of use vacuum from an existing compressed air infrastructure. Typical applications include grippers for ...
Suppressed Expression of Non-DSB Repair Genes Inhibits Gamma-radiation Induced Cytogenetic Repair And Cell Cycle Arrest
(DNA Repair (Amst), 2008)
Changes of gene expression profile are one of the most important biological responses in living cells after ionizing radiation (IR) exposure. Although some studies have shown that genes up-regulated by IR may play important ...
Consistency-Driven Data Quality Management in Wireless Sensor Networks
(Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, 2008)
With more and more real deployments of wireless sensor network applications, we envision that their success is nonetheless determined by whether the sensor networks can provide a high-quality stream of data over a long ...
