Abstract:ALCOHOL USAGE OVER TIME RESULTS IN A NUMBER OF METABOLIC ALTERATIONS TO SEVERAL ORGAN SYSTEMS, INCLUDING CHANGES IN LIVER FUNCTION. ONE OF THE LATTER CHANGES IS THE PRODUCTION AND SECRETION INTO THE BLOOD OF AN ISOFORM OF THETRANSFERRIN MOLECULE. THE PI 5.7-TRANSFERRIN ISOFORM CAN BEDETECTED BY… more
Abstract:CERAMIC CANDLE FILTERS HAVE PROVED TO BE EFFECTIVE FOR REMOVING PARTICULATES TO LEVELS EXCEEDING NEW SOURCE PERFORMANCE STANDARDS IN HIGH TEMPERATURE APPLICATIONS. HOWEVER, THE TRADITIONAL "HARD" CERAMIC FILTER ELEMENTS, FORMED TYPICALLY FROM GRANULES OF SILICON CARBIDE, MULLITE, ETC., HAVE BEEN… more
Abstract:CERAMIC FILTRATION IS ONE OF THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE AND PROMISING TECHNOLOGIES FOR REMOVING PARTICULATS AT HIGH TEMPERATURES TO LEVELS EXCEEDING NEW SOURCE PEROFRMANCE STANDARDS (NSPS) ASWELL AS CLEAN AIR ACT MANDATES. WITH SUBMICRON RETENTION CAPABILITIES, CERAMIC FILTERS ARE IDEALLY SUITED FOR… more
Abstract:THE CONCEPT COMBINES INHERENT LACK OF SIGNIFICANT SENSITIVITY TO UNWANTED STRESS COMPONENTS WITH PRACTICALITY OF COUPLING TO ROCK WITH LITTLE OR NO GROUT. BUILDING ON A FOUNDATION OF GHOROUGH THEORETICAL ANALYSIS AND DEMONSTRATION OF MANUFACTURING FEASIBILITY BASED ON PREVIOUS WORK, THE OBJECTIVE IS… more
Abstract:LIQUID PHASE PROCESSING OF CERAMICS, GLASS, SEMICONDUCTORS, AND OXIDE SUPERCONDUCTORS PROVIDES A ROUTE TO PRODUCING USEFUL FORMS OF THESE MATERIALS WHICH IS OFTEN BLOCKED BY REACTION WITH CONTAINERS. THIS RESEARCH EXPLORES A NOVEL CONTAINERLESS PROCESSING METHOD FOR THESE MATERIALS. HETEROGENEOUS… more
Abstract:The long-term objective is the understanding of aromatic compound degradation by bacteria. This research will provide insight into the environmental and human risks of aromatic compounds following release to the environment. In addition, information gained through this work will be useful in the… more
Abstract:MANY OF THE COMMERCIAL SENSORS IN USE (OR UNDER DEVELOPMENT) ARE BASED IN METAL-OXIDE CERAMIC MATERIALS. METAL-OXIDES OFFER SPECIAL ADVANTAGES BECAUSE OF THEIR CHEMICAL AND THERMAL STABILITY, FAST RESPONSE TIMES, AND SENSITIVITY TO ELECTROCHEMICAL CHANGES. THERE ARE REPORTED CASES THAT SHOW… more
Abstract:There are currently no treatments for the neurodegeneration that occurs following a stroke or head trauma. Recent breakthroughs in understanding of the mechanisms by which nervous tissue degenerates have made it possible to design therapeutic drug strategies to prevent the process. We will develop… more
Abstract:INVESTIGATORS ARE EXPLORING THE USE OF METAL FOAMS AS HEAT TRANSFER ENHANCEMENT DEVICES. THE RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE DETERMINATION OF THE UTILIZATION OF METAL FOAMS AS HEAT TRANSFER ENHANCEMENT DEVICES; DEVELOPMENT OF A THEORETIAL MODEL FOR THE EFFECTIVENESS OF METAL FOAMS AS HEAT TRANSFER… more
Abstract:The advancement of custom and specialized seating technology is recognized as a priority for medical and rehabilitation research. This research is aimed at enhancing the mobility and other functions of individuals with physical disabilities. This work is a feasibility study for an innovative… more
Abstract:A new spectroscopy for analysis of biological cells and large macromolecules will be developed. The technique characterizes cells based on their dielectric (polarization) properties. It utilizes time autocorrelation functions from dynamic light scattering to study the dielectric properties of… more
Abstract:MEMBRANE PROTEIN STUDIES ARE SEVERELY LIMITED BY LACK OF EFFICIENT METHODS FOR THEIR PURIFICATION. IAM SURFACES HAVE RECENTLY BEEN DISCOVERED AND ARE EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE AT PURIFYING FUNCTIONAL MEMBRANES PROTEINS. SINCE IAM SURFACES ARE PREPARED BY COVALENTLY BONDING MEMBRANE-FORMING-LIPIDS TO… more
Abstract:A new family of enantioselective dirhodiumn(II) catalysts have been developed by Professor Michael P. Doyle at Trinity University using a rational approach employing molecular modeling and molecular orbital calculations. These catalysts show an extraordinary ability to enantioselectively catalyze a… more
Abstract:This project involves a study with a gas-injected plasma focus facility intended to develop the database to design and build an optimized 1-MJ focus. The ultimate objective is to demonstrate the feasibility and attractiveness of this concept for very high specific impulse space propulsion. Studies… more
Abstract:Liquid crystal-based sonosensitive plates will be investigated for rapid determination of spatial distributions of temporal average intensities for diagnostic ultrasound beams, including real-time imaging and Doppler modes. From such distributions, exposure parameters such as SPTA (spatial… more
Abstract:AN IMPORTANT COMPONENT OF ARCJET THRUSTERS IS THE INSULATOR HOLDING THE CATHODE BASE AND SEPARATING THE ELECTRODES. THE CURRENT BASELINE MATERIAL IS BORON NITRIDE (BN), WHICH IS WELL KNOWN FOR ITS HIGH ELECTRICAL RESISTIVITY AND HIGH THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY. HOWEVER, AT ARCJET OPERATING TEMPERATURE, BN… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
