Design and Development of a Dual-Actuator Mixed-Mode Interaction Tester
A dual-actuator system is designed and developed to test mixed-mode fracture of laminated beams. Material and geometric properties of silicon/epoxy interface was used to develop a failure envelope of energy release rates ...
Integrating Pulsed High Power Light Emitting Diodes for Schlieren Imaging
This honors thesis describes the development of a light source for schlieren imaging that is based on pulsed high-brightness light emitting diodes. Schlieren imaging is an optical technique that enables the visualization ...
Experimental Characterization of Long-Chain Polymer Drilling Fluids
Sophisticated new drilling technologies such as managed pressure drilling (MPD) and dual gradient drilling (DGD) rely critically on accurate hydraulics modeling. Current fluid measurement and characterization technology ...
3D Printing and Structural Testing of Quick Connection
3D printing technology allows three-dimensional solid objects to be created from a digital file. It is an additive manufacturing process that creates objects by laying down successive layers of material in one continuous ...
Production of Hydroxyl Radicals in the Dark
Oxidation is prevalent in atmospheric chemistry due to the abundance of oxidants in the atmosphere. One of the commonly found oxidants is hydroxyl (OH) radical. Previously, OH radicals have been generated by means of UV ...
