<p>Developing real-time traffic diversion strategies is a major issue of Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS), a component of Intelligent Vehicle Highway Systems (IVHS). Traffic diversion utilizes available capacity ...
A study of blister tests for film adhesion measurement and fracture efficiency of tests for adhesive bonds
(Virginia Tech, 1994-04-05)
<p>A novel concept, the fracture efficiency, is proposed in this dissertation as a performance index of fracture specimen designs for adhesive bonds. Evaluated based on a simple quantity, the fracture efficiency parameter, ...
Finite element analysis of geodesically stiffened cylindrical composite shells using a layerwise theory
(Virginia Tech, 1994-06-01)
Layerwise finite element analyses of geodesically stiffened cylindrical shells are presented In this work. The layerwise laminate theory of Reddy (LWTR) is developed and adapted to circular cylindrical shells. The Ritz ...
Use of the Gompertz equation to model non-linear survival curves and predict temperature, pH, and sodium chloride effects for Listeria monocytogenes Scott A
(Virginia Tech, 1994-05-05)
<p>Numerous examples of non-linear survival curves, plotted as log surviving cells vs. time, for bacteria exposed to heat have been reported. Factors which may affect the shape of a survival curve and the heat resistance of ...
