Validation of Subject Specific Computed Tomography-based Finite Element Models of the Human Proximal Tibia using Full-field Experimental Displacement Measurements from Digital Volume Correlation
Quantitative computed tomography-based finite element (QCT-FE) modeling is a computational tool for predicting bone’s response to applied load, and is used by musculoskeletal researchers to better understand bone mechanics ...
IMPROVEMENT OF A MANUFACTURING PROCESS FOR COST REDUCTION: A CASE STUDY
The labor cost variance in the case study company used in this study has been trending increasingly on the negative side in the last four years. In a bid to protect the identity of the case study organization while ensuring ...
Investigation of hydrogen induced cracking susceptibility of API 5L X65 pipeline steels
The service environment of oil and gas pipelines often subject them to harsh conditions, such as, very low temperatures, microbial attack, acidic or sour environments etc. These conditions can trigger different failure ...
A Method to Evaluate the Thermal Stress Management of Firefighters' Protective Clothing
The clothing worn by firefighters is essential in ensuring their safety. One of the tradeoffs that is made when designing apparel for firefighting is between its ability to protect the individual from high external heat ...
A Machine Design for Launching Curling Stones and an Initial Evaluation of its Efficacy
The goal of this thesis was to design, prototype, and test a device to launch curling stones at preset linear and rotational velocities, and at preset angles to the long axis of the curling ice sheet. This device will help ...
Data Modeling for the Integrated and Intelligent Computer-Aided Design of Buildings and HVAC systems
Building design includes design (namely selection and configuration) of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air, and Conditioning) systems. Conventionally, building design goes first, followed by design of a HVAC system, which ...
