Influence of the Interphase on the Mechanical Properties of Nylon 66 Composites
(Virginia Tech, 1996-08-01)
The mechanical properties of glass fiber and carbon fiber reinforced nylon 66 were investigated using both microscopic and macroscopic testing techniques. The objective was to determine how different interphase morphologies ...
A Numerical Study of the Sensitivity of Cloudy-Scene Bidirectional Reflectivity Distribution Functions to Variations in Cloud Parameters
(Virginia Tech, 1996-06-28)
The goal of this research has been to characterize the sensitivity of the earth's shortwave bidirectional reflectivity distribution function (BRDF) to variations in cloud parameters. The BRDF is a remote sensing ...
Locating Structural Damage in Real Time Using Contrast Maximization
(Virginia Tech, 1996-04-01)
A technique to identify structural damage in real time using limited instrumentation is presented, Contrast maximization is used to find the excitation forces that maximize the difference in the response of the damaged ...
