    • A Comparison of Two Sock Types on Navicular Drop and Center of Pressure Measurements in Standing, Walking, and Running
    • Taylor, Ashlee
    • Introduction: The New Balance Core Low Cut Sock (New Balance Athletic Shoe, Inc. · Boston, MA United States) is one of many arch support socks out in the market. These socks have an elastic portion, called a Stability Fit Arch Support & Hold...


    • A Comparison of Two Tape Techniques on Navicular Drop and Center of Pressure Measurements
    • Prusak, Krista M
    • Introduction: Foot over-pronation, attributable to Tibialis Posterior (TP) muscle weakness, is a possible cause of medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS)3. Taping may provide a viable alternative for a dysfunctional TP and its associated navicular...


    • A Safety Analysis of Fatigue and Drowsy Driving in the State of Utah
    • Young, Hunter T 1981-
    • Fatigue and drowsy driving in the state of Utah has been a causal factor in thousands of crashes over the years and poses a serious threat to public safety. Consequently, the purpose of this research was to evaluate the impact of drowsy driving in...


    • Active Noise Control of a Two-Fan Exhaust-Mounted Array Using Near-Field Control Sources and Error Sensors
    • Rust, Ryan Leonard 1982-
    • Multiple fans are sometimes used in an array configuration to cool various types of electronic equipment. In addition to adding another noise source, using two fans with closely spaced blade passage frequencies (BPF) can create an annoying beat...


    • Analysis of Electromagnetic and Seismic Geophysical Methods for Investigating Shallow Sub-surface Hydrogeology
    • Parks, Eric M 1983-
    • An integrated electromagnetic (EM) and seismic geophysical study was performed to evaluate non-invasive approaches to estimate depth to shallow groundwater in arid environments with elevated soil salinity where the installation of piezometers would...


    • Analysis of Viscous Drag Reduction and Thermal Transport Effects for Microengineered Ultrahydrophobic Surfaces
    • Davies, Jason W 1979-
    • One approach recently proposed for reducing the frictional resistance to liquid flow in microchannels is the patterning of micro-ribs and cavities on the channel walls. When treated with a hydrophobic coating, the liquid flowing in the...


    • Analytical Modeling and Optimization of a Thermoelectric Heat Conversion System Operating Betweeen Fluid Streams
    • Taylor, Stephen H
    • Analytical, closed-form solutions governing thermoelectric behavior are derived. An analytical model utilizing a thermal circuit is presented involving heat transfer into, through, out of, and around a thermoelectric device. A nondimensionalization...


    • Calorespirometric Evidence for Adaptation of Blackbrush and Shadscale to Growth Season Temperatures in Cold Deserts
    • Summers, Heidi A 1981-
    • Coleogyne ramosissima Torr. (blackbrush) and Atriplex confertifolia [Torr. & Frem.] Wats. (shadscale) are cold desert shrubs from different families that often grow together in the Great Basin and the Colorado Plateau in the life zone between 800...


    • Capillary Liquid Chromatography Using Micro Size Particles
    • Xiang, Yanqiao 1973-
    • High speed and/or high efficiency separations can be realized using small particles (~ 1 micro) in liquid chromatography (LC). However, due to the large pressure drop caused by small particles, conventional LC pumping systems cannot satisfy the...


    • Change Trajectories and Early Warning System to Identify Youth at Risk for Negative Psychotherapy Outcome
    • Nelson, Philip Legrand 1979-
    • The field of mental health treatment is making efforts to better serve all psychotherapy clients, but especially the 5–10% of clients who deteriorate in treatment (Lambert & Ogles, 2004) and the 30–60% who drop out prematurely (Pekarik &...


    • Characterization of the Thermal Transport Through a Temporally-Varying Ash Layer
    • Cundick,Darron Palmer 1979-
    • Ash deposits in commercial coal-fired boilers frequently pose serious maintenance challenges and decrease thermal efficiency. A better understanding of fundamental thermal transport properties in ash deposits can help mitigate their negative...


    • Computationally Modeling the Effects of Surface Roughness on Soft X-Ray Multilayer Reflectors
    • Johnson, Jedediah Edward Jensen 1979-
    • Electromagnetic scattering from a rough two dimensional homogeneous scatterer has been computationally modeled. The scatterer is intended to simulate reflection from a two interface multilayer. The rough scatterer was created from Gaussian random...


    • Development of Polymer Monoliths for the Analysis of Peptides and Proteins
    • Gu, Binghe 1973-
    • Several novel polymer monoliths for the analysis of peptides and proteins were synthesized using polyethylene glycol diacrylate (PEGDA) as crosslinker. Photo-initiated copolymerization of polyethylene glycol methyl ether acrylate and PEGDA yielded...


    • Effects of Pressure on Coal Pyrolysis at High Heating Rates and Char Combustion
    • Zeng, Dong 1974-
    • Clean coal technologies are now becoming popular because of their high efficiencies and minimal environmental impact. Higher operating pressures have been applied to clean coal technologies. The effect of pressure on coal pyrolysis and char...


    • Electron Microscopy Characterization of Vanadium Dioxide Thin Films and Nanoparticles
    • Rivera, Felipe
    • Vanadium dioxide (VO_2) is a material of particular interest due to its exhibited metal to insulator phase transition at 68°C that is accompanied by an abrupt and significant change in its electronic and optical properties. Since this material can...


    • Failing Drop CO2 Deposition (Desublimation) Heat Exchanger for the Cryogenic Carbon Capture Process
    • James, David William
    • Cryogenic carbon capture removes CO2 and other pollutants from flue and waste stream gases produced from the combustion of fossil fuels such as coal, natural gas, and oil and the production of cement. A transient, 1-dimensional numerical model was...


    • Functionalization of In-plane Photonic Microcantilever Arrays for Biosensing Applications
    • Ness, Stanley J.
    • Microcantilevers have been investigated as high sensitivity, label free biosensors for approximately 15 years. In nearly all cases, a thin gold film deposited on the microcantilevers is used as an intermediate attachment layer because of the...


    • Joining Polycrystalline Cubic Boron Nitride and Tungsten Carbide by Partial Transient Liquid Phase Bonding
    • Cook, Grant O III 1981-
    • Friction stir welding (FSW) of steel is often performed with an insert made of polycrystalline cubic boron nitride (PCBN). Specifically, MS80 is a grade of PCBN made by Smith MegaDiamond that has been optimized for the FSW process. The PCBN insert...


    • Method for the Simulated Layup of Composite Fabrics
    • Christensen, David M.
    • Due to the complexity of designing advanced composite parts, many software tools have been developed to aid the designer and reduce design cycle time. Draping is one of those tools and is used to predict the fiber angles throughout the part. This...


    • Natural Fibers and Fiberglass: A Technical and Economic Comparison
    • Zsiros, Justin Andrew 1981-
    • Natural fibers have received attention in recent years because of their minimal environmental impact, reasonably good properties, and low cost. There is a wide variety of natural fibers suitable for composite applications, the most common of which...
