A binary tree coding scheme is a bijection mapping a set of binary trees to a set of integer tuples called codewords. One problem considered in the literature is that of listing the codewords for n-node binary trees, such that successive codewords...
A cogeneration system using a noncondensing steam turbine to simultaneously provide electricity and process steam to a citrus plant was modeled in order to assess the source energy savings and the economic implications with the employment of this...
A computer graphics simulation of an aircraft Head-Up Display was designed using an RDS-3000 Ikonas Graphics Processor and a PDP-11/34 host computer system. The software control and display modules were accomplished using Ikonas microcode and...
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...
A computer model of a fin and tube air-to-air heat exchanger is presented. The model incorporates a computational scheme to account for latent effects due to small amounts of moisture in one or both fluid streams. A testing program is described...
A computer model of a flat plate solar collector has been devised. The model is able to simulate most common types of collectors, with up to three transparent covers of any material. Using primarily equations available from the literature the...
A computer simulation of a thermosyphon system allowing load drawoff and non-ideal weather conditions has been developed. The model is restricted to the more common single cover, flat plate collector system. Using an analysis based on the present...
A concrete beam is rarely subjected to pure torsion loading. However, in many design applications a beam is subjected to torsional loads in addition to bending and shear loading. The American Concrete Institute has developed a specification for the...
A field experiment was conducted to evaluate the possibility of using shallow reservoirs containing aquatic plants to reduce excess nutrient levels of agricultural drainage effluent from organic soils. The reservoir systems consisted of three...
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...
A formula for the average fade time of the intensity of a spherical optical wave travelling through atmospherica turbulence is developed. The model employed involves isotropic, homogeneous statistics using a lognormal distribution for the...
A formula for the average fade time of the intesity of a plane optical wave traveling through atmospheric turbulence is developed. The model employed involves isotropic, homogeneous statistics using a lognormal distribution for the channel. The...
A gas-phase system to oxidize and remove the platinum and palladium from automotive catalytic converter units was studied. The effects of varying reaction temperature, time and reactant gas concentration upon yields were monitored using a...
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...
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...
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...
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...
A microbiological and economic study of methan production from dairy cattle waste was performed. The profit potential of producing methane and other vendable products from dairy cattle wastes was studied using a computerized cost model. The unit...
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 new concept in motivation has recently been devised: that of work values. The Work Values Inventory (WVI) developed by Donald E. Super (1970) was used to test five hypotheses: (1) The underlying work value structures of persons will not vary...
