motus et re-creation: Movement and re-creation on accotink creek
(Virginia Tech, 2011-06-24)
Speed has long been equated with "progress". The Romans' paved roads begot much of this concept, allowing faster travel that improved communication, commerce, and enabled control over vast territories. Additionally paved ...
Mobile Robot Obstacle Avoidance based on Deep Reinforcement Learning
(Virginia Tech, 2018)
Obstacle avoidance is one of the core problems in the field of autonomous navigation. An obstacle avoidance approach is developed for the navigation task of a reconfigurable multi-robot system named STORM, which stands for ...
The influence of algal growth and related ecological factors in reservoirs on the production and control of trihalomethane precursors
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1982)
Using Incremental Dynamic Analysis to Visualize the Effects of Viscous Fluid Dampers on Steel Moment Frame Drift
(Virginia Tech, 2007-07-03)
This thesis presents the details of a study regarding both the use of linear viscous fluid dampers in controlling the interstory drift in steel moment frames, and the use of incremental dynamic analysis as a method of ...
Sensitivity Study on Modification of Vertical Distribution of Strength and Stiffness in Wood Shear Wall Building Models
(Virginia Tech, 2018-06-26)
This thesis presents a numerical study of the influence of varying story strength on the seismic performance of multi-story wood-frame shear wall buildings. In the prior FEMA P695 studies of these buildings, the non-simulated ...
An interleaving warehouse layout model
(Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 1985)
This thesis describes the development and implementation of an Interleaving Warehouse Layout Model. Traditionally, the space allocated to items in a warehouse is determined on the basis of inventory cost considerations. ...
The market potential and economic feasibility of a wooden pallet bin leasing system
(Virginia Tech, 1985-06-05)
A Microfludic Assay Device for Study of Cell Migration on ECM-mimicking Suspended Nanofibers in Presence of Biochemical Cues
(Virginia Tech, 2016-08-12)
Eukaryotic cell chemotaxis, or directed cell migration in response to a chemoeffector gradient, plays a central role in many important biological process such as wound healing, cancer metastasis, and embryogenesis. In vivo, ...
A Scrolling Geotextile Fabric Filter Device for Primary Clarification
(Virginia Tech, 2002-09-17)
This study investigated the feasibility of using a portable geotextile fabric based filtering device to remove suspended solids from raw sewage. This device was considered to replace a conventional primary clarifier. The ...
The Utility of Mathematical Symbols
(Virginia Tech, 2015-05-27)
Explanations of why mathematics is useful to empirical research focus on mathematics' role as a representation or model. On platonist accounts, the representational relation is one of structural correspondence between ...
