A mathematical model is presented for the problem of determining the two-dimensional temperature distribution resulting from the discharge of a heated effluent into a shallow, quiescent receptacle. The physical model ofr the problem is the...
Today, the engineer is faced with the task of predicting and evaluating the extent of the Nonpoint Sources that pollute our waterways. A mathematical model may be an extremely useful tool in helping the engineer solve problems in the area of water...
The purpose of this thesis is to illustrate the nature of blood flow within capillaries by using familiar mathematical techniques. Because the circulatory system is so complex, the fluid dynamics of the system is prefaced by a discussion of the...
The problem of ""Total Water Management"" is reviewed; particular emphasis is given to the magnitude and intensity of pollution from nonpoint sources. The relationship between land usage in south Florida and subsequent effects upon receiving water...
The objective of this study is to develop guidelines for the analysis of storm water retention ponds in Central Florida. Development of a combined seepage analysis considering both unsaturated and saturated groundwater flow incorporation into a...
A mathematical analysis seeking an accurate measure of the worth of numerical integration techniques used for real-time digital flight simulation problems is presented. This investigation allows the subject of ""best integration methods to be...
Hypocyclic mechanisms are the basic building blocks in the design of many widely used mechanical systems such as gear differentials, computing devices and other useful instruments. This paper presents a unique variation to the conventional...
Stormwater management in urban areas is a major concern today. The problem of disposing of this stormwater runoff in a satisfactory manner is very difficult indeed. Both the quantity and quality aspects of the runoff must be dealt with to obtain...
Two types of solar collecting systems are frequently employed--flat plate collectors with spectrally selective windows which trap sunlight with the "greenhouse effect" and focusing systems with curved mirrors which concentrate the sun's rays on an...
An overview of a flight simulation system is presented with a discussion of the system components and the interaction between functional units. The functions of each unit in the visual system are described. Specifically, the projectile subsystem...
A Gold code sequence generator suitable for use in a code division multiple access spread spectrum communication application is designed. A dual, single return shift register configuration is used to generate Gold code sequences. The code sequences...
Stormwater management necessitates a reional plan based on the best practical methods. "Storm", a mathematical model, is employed to simulate runoff conditions in the Shingle Creek Basin. The computed runoff quantity is calibrated directly with...
This research report documents the various types of Data Acquisition Systems in use for testing jet aircraft engines. The cost trade offs and design considerations are explored for systems which employ a digital computer as the prime...
The paper discusses the theoretical analysis and the experimental work done to describe the cause of intermodulation distortion in class C transistorized amplifiers. A mathematical basis for the intermodulation was derived using a single frequency...
This is a research report that discusses some continuous and discrete modeling techniques. The report applies these techniques to the analysis of Canal 38 (Kissimmee River) part of Central and South Florida Flood Control District. The analysis is...
This report reviews the state of the art with respect to permeability determination and sanitary landfills. Characteristics of the soil which determine the permeability are g1ven. Processes which can change the permeability are discussed. Darcy's...
A mathematical model is derived to provide quasi-steady state predictions of the performance of a high pressure hydraulic supply system, using equations which govern the physical processes as opposed to equations which match input-output...
The concept of a cavity absorber for use with a focusing parabolic trough is developed in this paper. A mathematical model is formulated and used to compare different absorber geometries. Limitations of the model are discussed and within the...
A mathematical computer model has been developed for the prediction of the thermal performace of a flat-plate solar collector used as the generator for an absorption cycle cooling system. The system employs thermoelectric cells to power its pump. ...
Traditional critical path methods imply the assumption of unlimited availability of resources. Mathematical models and heuristic techniques are two alternatives that consider resource limitiation to sequence the activities of a project. This...
