27 Adams, DanielMicromechanical modeling of high energy compositesHigh-energy polymer-binded explosives (PBXs) are composed of high-energy crystaline particles and a rubbery binder. The volume fraction of particles is approximately 92 percent. The high-energy particles have a Young's modulus that is three orders of magnitude higher than that of the binder. Eff...2000
28 Normann, Richard A.; Horch, Kenneth W.; Cha, KichulMobility performance with a pixelized vision systemA visual prosthesis, based on electrical stimulation of the visual cortex, has been suggested as a means for partially restoring functional vision in the blind. The prosthesis would create a pixelized visual sense consisting of punctate spots of light (phosphenes). The present study investigated the...Visual Prosthesis; Mobility; Phosphene Simulator1992
29 Smith, Amanda D.Modeling two-phase flow and vapor cycles using the generalized fluid system simulation programThis work presents three new applications for the general purpose fluid network solver code GFSSP developed at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center: (1) cooling tower, (2) vapor-compression refrigeration system, and (3) vapor-expansion power generation system.

30 Harman, Todd B.Multiscale modeling of accidental explosions and detonationsAccidental explosions are exceptionally dangerous and costly, both in lives and money. Regarding worldwide conflict with small arms and light weapons, the Small Arms Survey has recorded more than 297 accidental explosions in munitions depots across the world that have resulted in thousands of deaths...2013-01-01
31 Gale, Bruce K.New approaches to bridge nerve gaps: Development of a novel drug-delivering nerve conduitContemporary bridging techniques for repairing nerve gaps caused by trauma require autologous nerve grafts, which are difficult to harvest and handle and result in significant donor site deficit. Several nerve conduits with axon growth-enhancing potential have been proposed, developed and tested ove...2012-01-01
