• Conductivity of proppant mixtures 

    Schulz, Eric Clinton (2014-05)
    Hydraulic fracturing is a physically complex phenomenon, and there are many variables, both environmental and operational, that affect the overall success of a fracture treatment. Amongst the operational variables, the ...
  • Development of reliable pavement models 

    Aguiar Moya, José Pablo, 1981- (2011-08)
    As the cost of designing and building new highway pavements increases and the number of new construction and major rehabilitation projects decreases, the importance of ensuring that a given pavement design performs as ...
  • Generalizing the multivariate normality assumption in the simulation of dependencies in transportation systems 

    Ng, Man Wo (2010-05)
    By far the most popular method to account for dependencies in the transportation network analysis literature is the use of the multivariate normal (MVN) distribution. While in certain cases there is some theoretical ...
  • Measuring liquefaction-induced deformation from optical satellite imagery 

    Martin, Jonathan Grant (2014-05)
    Liquefaction-induced deformations associated with lateral spreading represent a significant hazard that can cause substantial damage during earthquakes. The ability to accurately predict lateral-spreading displacement is ...
  • Novel tools for ultrafast spectroscopy 

    Jarvis, Thomas William (2011-12)
    Exciton dynamics in semiconductor nanostructures are dominated by the effects of many-body physics. The application of coherent spectroscopic tools, such as two-dimensional Fourier transform spectroscopy (2dFTS), to the ...
