  • Design of wide tuning range current-controlled oscillator 

    Wang, Peijun, active 21st century (2014-05)
    This thesis presents a novel current-controlled oscillator (CCO). It charges and discharges a source-coupled capacitor periodically with well-controlled current sources. Its current-to-frequency conversion relies on passive ...
  • Design optimization of radiant enclosures 

    Daun, Kyle James (2003)
    Design problems involving radiant enclosures are encountered in many different industrial applications. Examples include the design of annealing furnaces used in materials processing, ovens that bake food or cure coated ...
  • Design perspectives on diabetes management games 

    Royer, George
    For decades, there has been scholarly interest in the use of serious digital games to assist individuals suffering from diabetes with the self-management of that disease. However, previous research in this area has not ...
  • Design Principles for Ligand-Sensing, Conformation-Switching Ribozymes 

    Chen, Xi; Ellington, Andrew D. (Public Library of Science, 2009-12-24)
    Nucleic acid sensor elements are proving increasingly useful in biotechnology and biomedical applications. A number of ligand-sensing, conformational-switching ribozymes (also known as allosteric ribozymes or aptazymes) ...
  • Design pro-action : the development of a process 

    Nityananda, Ajay (2002)
    In the course of this report I discuss the route that I took to come to an understanding of Design and its societal role, the development of a context for my work, and the nature of my design process. I thereby hope to lay ...
  • Design prototyping methods 

    Camburn, Bradley Adam; 0000-0001-8297-5052 (2015-05)
    Product development is often modeled as a cycle between phases of designing, building, and testing. This work will explore early stage build efforts of product design, which is also known as prototyping. Prototyping is a ...
  • Design provisions for autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) infilled steel moment frames 

    Ravichandran, Shiv Shanker (2009-12)
    In this dissertation, the seismic behavior and design of AAC-infilled steel moment frames are investigated systematically. The fundamental vehicle for this investigation is the ATC-63 methodology, which is intended for the ...
  • Design provisions for autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) structural systems 

    Tanner, Jennifer Elaine (2003-05)
    The objective of this research program was to develop reliable design provisions for AAC structural systems. Typical AAC construction uses AAC shear walls combined with AAC floor or roof diaphragms. AAC shear walls ...
  • Design recommendations for CIP-PCP bridge decks 

    Kwon, Ki Yeon (2012-12)
    Precast, prestressed concrete panels (PCPs) and cast-in-place (CIP) concrete slabs are commonly used in Texas and elsewhere. Because PCPs are placed between bridge girders, and CIP concrete slabs are cast over the PCPs, ...
  • Design synthesis of multistable equilibrium systems 

    King, Carey Wayne (2004)
    Mechanical systems are often desired to have features that can adapt to changing environments. Ideally these systems have a minimum number of parts and consume as little power as possible. Unfortunately many adaptable ...
  • Design techniques for low-power SAR ADCs in nano-scale CMOS technologies 

    Chen, Long (2016-05)
    This thesis presents low power design techniques for successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) in nano-scale CMOS technologies. Low power SAR ADCs face two major challenges especially at ...
  • Design to re-nourish 

    Benson, Eric, 1975- (2006)
    My graduate research explores how sustainable principles can be more fully incorporated into professional graphic design studios. The experiments and projects that I have undertaken include both printed and digital pieces ...
  • Design toward dialogue : a graphic design methodology 

    Paredes, Xochitl Angela (2004)
    This report emphasizes the social design aspect possible in graphic design. It focuses on creating a dialectical environment where critical thinking can begin and flourish. A methodology of graphic design is presented as ...
  • Design trade-off of low power continuous-time [Sigma Delta] modulators for A/D conversions 

    Song, Tongyu (2007-12)
    The research investigates several critical design issues of continuous-time (CT) [Sigma Delta] modulators. The first is to investigate the sensitivity of CT [Sigma Delta] modulators to high-frequency clock spurs. These ...
  • A design validation methodology for high performance microprocessors 

    Krishnamurthy, Narayanan (2003)
    The task of checking whether a circuit implementation satisfies an abstract specification, prior to manufacturing the circuit, is extremely important. This is because of the reliance on the abstract specification ...
  • Design workshops 

    Howell, Bryan Franklin (2003)
    In the course of this report I discuss the creation and meaning of three design workshops. The first workshop, "A Design Process For Everyone," introduces the essentials of a conventional six-step design process of problem ...
  • Design, Analysis, and Fabrication of Two Lightweight, High L’ Railguns
