Facilitating FPGA Reconfiguration through Low-level Manipulation
(Virginia Tech, 2014-03-24)
The process of FPGA reconfiguration is to recompile a design and then update the FPGA configuration correspondingly. Traditionally, FPGA design compilation follows the way how hardware is compiled for achieving high ...
Condition Assessment, Indices, and Risk-based Decision-making for Public School Infrastructure Managment
(Virginia Tech, 2014-09-04)
The Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) requires public schools to manage asbestos containing materials. Twenty five years after AHERA was enacted public schools continue to struggle with documenting and managing ...
The development and applications of unsymmetrical diboron compounds
(Virginia Tech, 2014-12-29)
Organoboron compounds have shown a wide variety of applications in both organic synthesis and the pharmaceutical field in the past decades. Transition metal-catalyzed boration of unsaturated compounds has been studied ...
Microstructure-based Constitutive Models for Residual Mechanical Behavior of Aluminum Alloys after Fire Exposure
(Virginia Tech, 2014-04-24)
Aluminum alloys are increasingly being used in a broad spectrum of applications such as lightweight structures, light rail, bridge decks, marine crafts, and off-shore platforms. The post-fire (residual) integrity of ...
Atmospheric Lagrangian transport structures and their applications to aerobiology
(Virginia Tech, 2014-02-21)
Exploring the concepts of long range aerial transport of microorganisms is the main motivation of this study. For this purpose we use theories and concepts of dynamical systems in the context of geophysical fluid systems. ...
Cold Working Holes in Multi-Layer Members
(Virginia Tech, 2014-10-09)
Increasing the life cycle of critical components is a common goal in many vehicle industries. One of the most common ways to increase the fatigue resistance of fasteners holes is the process of cold expansion. This method ...
