On Utilization of Contributory Storage in Desktop Grids
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2007), TR-07-16
The availability of desktop grids and shared computing platforms has popularized the use of contributory resources, such as desktops, as computing substrates for a variety of applications. However, addressing the exponentially ...
This module addresses the concepts, development and implementation of digital library protocols and covers the roles of protocols in information retrieval systems (IR) and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA).
Integration of VT ETD-db with Banner
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2008), TR-08-04
The Electronic Thesis and Dissertation database (ETD-db) was developed at Virginia Tech by Digital Library and Archives for the VT Graduate School and the Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD). The ...
Science of Digital Libraries(SciDL)
(Department of Computer Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University, 2003), TR-03-13
Our purpose is to ensure that people and institutions better manage information through digital libraries (DLs). Thus we address a fundamental human and social need, which is particularly urgent in the modern Information ...
Recommendations for the Connection Between Full-Depth Precast Bridge Deck Panel Systems and Precast I-Beams
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2007-06-01)
Precast bridge deck panels can be used in place of a cast-in-place concrete deck to reduce bridge closure times for deck replacements or new bridge construction. The panels are prefabricated at a precasting plant providing ...
Construction of a Virginia Short-Span Bridge with the Strongwell 36-Inch Double-Web I-Beam
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2005-10-01)
The Route 601 Bridge in Sugar Grove, VA, spans 39 ft over Dickey Creek. The bridge is the first to use the Strongwell 36-in-deep fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) double-web beam (DWB) in a vehicular bridge superstructure. ...
Proof Testing a Bridge Deck Design with Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Bars as Top Mat of Reinforcement
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2003-06-01)
The primary objective of this project was to test a full-scale prototype of a bridge deck design containing glass fiber reinforced polymer (GFRP) bars as the top mat of reinforcement. The test deck mimics the design of the ...
Fundamental-limit perspectives on ultrawideband antennas
(American Geophysical Union, 2009-02-25)
The fundamental-limit theory of antennas provides a theoretical limit to assist in the evaluation of antenna performance in terms of antenna size, fractional impedance bandwidth, and gain. The limit is very useful in ...
Native Backfill Materials for Mechanically Stabilized Earth Walls
(Virginia Center for Transportation Innovation and Research, 2005-04-01)
Mechanically stabilized earth walls are an attractive alternative to conventional reinforced concrete retaining walls. The economy of these walls for non-critical applications might be improved by using alternative backfills ...
Implementation Of A Loss-Compensated Recirculating Delayed Self-Heterodyne Interferometer For Ultranarrow Laser Linewidth Measurement
(Optical Society of America, 2006-12-01)
Ultranarrow laser linewidth measurement using an optimized loss-compensated recirculating delayed self-heterodyne interferometer is described. An experimental setup is constructed to measure subkilohertz laser linewidths. ...
