An absorption principal cooling system, currently proposed for installation and evaluation at the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC), is described as a system and modeled through use of "A Transient Simulation Program (TRNSYS)" developed by the...
A computer model has been developed for the purpose of allocating funds, by department, within a university. This model categorizes each class as one of three types—lecture, problem solving, or laboratory. A standard class size is assigned to each...
This paper presents the background and procedures leading to development of a simulation model to analyze the impact of certain decision variables on operational system performance and workloads as the repair facility of a typical Navy field site. ...
This paper presents the considerations that must be taken into account when formalizing a simulation model to determine the operational availavility of a Navy training device. Consideration is given to those design and logistic support parameters...
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...
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...
This thesis presents an introduction into surface acoustics wave (SAW) unidirectional transducer (UDT) technologies and identifies advantages and disadvantages of various approaches. A complete model of the three-phase unidirectional structure is...
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...
After exploring the successes, failures, and conflicting explanations for results in two communications research traditions, distraction and counter-attitudinal advocacy, an attempt was made to explain these results in terms of a more comprehensive...
A linear programming model has been developed fro a Central Energy Plant which minimizes operational costs for a system involving the generation of chilled water and high temperature hot water plus the generation and/or purchase of electric power...
The demand for energy increases every year, and it is important that we ensure that the energy consumed is used eficiently. This study examines a system which provides energy in multiple forms from multiple energy sources using multiple energy...
A perspective of the Naval Education and Training System (NETS) is developed and utilized as a framework on which a simulation model of general training system activities is constructed. The simulation model, which is based on functional...
A model (NONLINRK) was developed for a closed tank system under feedback control by an ideal proportional-integral-derivative controller. Under servo action the fluid level in the tank is altered from its equilibrium set point. Under regulatory...
A methodology is presented for evaluting the performance of database update schemes. The methodology uses the M/Hr/1 queueing model as a basis for this analysis and makes use of the history of how data is used in the database. Parameters have...
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...
The pollutant transport from watershed to receiving waters is modeled for Spruce Creek basin. The data requirements for such a model are: daily rainfall; monthly lake evaporation; soil and land use breakdown; water quality history for the main...
A fixed charge model has been developed for a case study of a total energy power plant involving energy demands for chilled water, high temperature hot water, and electrical power. Using a FORTRAN computer program, which employs the Land and Doig...
Lights is almost always detected by its interaction with matter. One of these interaction phenomena is the scattering of light by small particles. A model is developed that estimates the amount of energy that is scattered towards a detector from a...
The study examined the nubmer of significant factors in the Hackman and Oldham (1980) job characteristics model. The original factors were: Skill Variety, Task Significance, Task Identity, Autonomy, and Feedback. Scores on these dimensions for 84...
This thesis, "A Hypothetical Model for System Safety in Air Transportation," is addressed to an individual having a basic technical background and some familiarity with the air transportation system in the United States. The thesis identifies the...
