(Virginia Tech, 2018)
Proceedings from the 2018 CTLC conference, hosted by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (formerly CIDER).
Field Laboratory for Emerging Stacked Unconventional Plays (ESUP): Project No. DE-FE0031576
(Virginia Tech, 2018-08-24)
The objective for this project is to investigate and characterize the resource potential for multi-play production of emerging unconventional reservoirs in Central Appalachia. The project team includes Virginia Tech; ...
High efficiency planar-type perovskite solar cells with negligible hysteresis using EDTA-complexed SnO2
(Springer Nature, 2018-08-13)
Even though the mesoporous-type perovskite solar cell (PSC) is known for high efficiency, its planar-type counterpart exhibits lower efficiency and hysteretic response. Herein, we report success in suppressing hysteresis ...
IAWA Archivist’s Report, 2018
(Virginia Tech, 2018)
The IAWA was established in 1985 as a collaborative project between the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and the University Libraries at Virginia Tech. It is overseen by a board of advisors that includes architects, ...
Analyzing the Russian Way of War: Evidence from the 2008 Conflict with Georgia
(Modern War Institute, 2018-03-20)
In the dog days of August 2008, a column of Russian tanks and troops rolled across the Republic of Georgia’s northern border and into South Ossetia, sparking a war that was over almost before it began. The war, while not ...
Women Inventors in Architecture 1700-2000
(Virginia Tech. University Libraries, 2018-03-28)
Women Inventors in Architecture 1700-2000: For centuries, women in architecture have been involved in pushing the boundaries of architecture and architectural practice. Whether as registered architects, members and leaders ...
Computing Functional Gains for Designing More Energy-Efficient Buildings Using a Model Reduction Framework
We discuss developing efficient reduced-order models (ROM) for designing energy-efficient buildings using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. This is often the first step in the reduce-then-control technique ...
Nanoscale Bacteria‐Enabled Autonomous Drug Delivery System (NanoBEADS) Enhances Intratumoral Transport of Nanomedicine
Cancer drug delivery remains a formidable challenge due to systemic toxicity and inadequate extravascular transport of nanotherapeutics to cells distal from blood vessels. It is hypothesized that, in absence of an external ...

A conversation with the recipient of the 2018 Milka Bliznakov Research Prize + A Guest Researcher. Alexander Bala – 2018 MBRP recipient in a Fullbright residency in Poland, studying the role of the Polish architect ...
Dynamical Properties of Postural Control in Obese Community-Dwelling Older Adults
Postural control is a key aspect in preventing falls. The aim of this study was to determine if obesity affected balance in community-dwelling older adults and serve as an indicator of fall risk. The participants were ...
