184 Burroughs, Michelle L.A sarrus-based passive mechanism for rotorcraft perchingFlying rotorcraft, such as helicopters and quadrotors, can gather useful information without the need for human presence, but they consume a great deal of power and have limited on-board energy resources. Our work aims to provide a passive perching mechanism so that a rotorcraft is able to grip bran...Mechanism; Perching; Robotics; Rotorcraft; Sarrus2014-12
185 Kumar, SidharthA scalable and tunable adaptive resolution parallel i/o frameworkThe increase in computational power of supercomputers is enabling complex scientific phenomena to be simulated at ever-increasing resolution and fidelity. With these simulations routinely producing large volumes of data, performing efficient I/O at this scale has become a very difficult task. Large-...File system; HPC; Parallel I/O2016
186 Stryker, Donald LA schools and staffing survey analysis of teacher job attitudes and working conditions in native american communitiesThe United States federal government funds two distinct types of school systems on or near indigenous lands: tribally controlled schools and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE)-operated schools.

187 Tsegay, Yonas T.A simple poroelastic-based algorithm for evaluating anomalous fluid pressure attributed to surface loading: case study of michigan basin glaciationIn Michigan and surrounding states, anomalous high fluid pressures at depth are attributed to Pleistocene glaciation. Specifically, surface loading of ice and glacial till is hypothesized to compact deep subsurface sediments, and low hydraulic diffusivity of those sediments may require 105 years or...Civil engineering2016
188 Schmidt, Clinton ToddA simplified model for understanding the evolution of Cirrus cloudsDeveloping an understanding of cloud evolution is central to understanding the climate system as a whole. Stratiform cirrus layers play a significant role in the radiative interaction with the climate system. Radiational effects are a driving force in the dynamic evolution of these layers, particul...Cirrus; Clouds; Mammatus; Microphysics; Thermodynamics2011-05
189 Smith, Edward Albert.A simulator of a multiphasic patient-screening facility.A SIMULTOR of the Multiphasic Patient Screening Facility at the L.D.S. Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah was developed. The SIMULATOR run "on-line" from the MEDLAB terminal on the research computer in the Department of Biophysics and Bioengineering at the L.D.S. Hospital. The purpose of the SIMULAT...MEDLAB; Digital Computer Stimulation1970-08
190 Winslow, Dustin W.A single electron tunneling force spectroscopy study of dielectric materialsSingle electron tunneling force microscopy has been developed over the last decade as a tool to manipulate the occupation and probe the properties of trap states in completely non conducting materials.
