    07 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Manuel Acosta

    The need for materials that would enable maneuverability during hypersonic flight in atmosphere re-entry conditions has focused materials scientists on the study of Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics...

  2. Characterization of Dynamic Soil-Pile Interaction by Random Vibration Methods: Experimental Design and Preliminary Results

    06 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Jeramy C Ashlock

    Preliminary results are presented for full-scale vibration tests of piles using random vibration methods and a new servo-hydraulic inertial shaker testing system.  Separate tests of vertical...

  3. Stacked Rapid Sand Filters: An Economical Technology for Sustainable Development

    06 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Michael James Adelman

    Provision of safe drinking water represents one of the most significant global environmental and human health challenges. Filtration is an important component of water treatment systems, but it...

  4. Accurate and Efficient Modeling of Probabilistic Dependence and its Impact on Decision Making Under Uncertainty

    05 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): J. Eric Bickel

     The objective of this research is to investigate the accuracy of different approximations to unknown joint probability distributions. This is achieved through a general sampling methodology...

  5. Resource Allocation and the Value of Information (VOI)

    05 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): J. Eric Bickel

    We consider value of information (VOI) within a portfolio of projects, whose values are uncertain. We formulate this portfolio-VOI (PVOI) problem analytically, and analyze its properties in...

  6. Mechanics of CNT Turfs: Modeling, Experiments and Characterization

    04 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Harish Radhakrishnan

    Of interest in the project is the mechanical behavior of a Carbon Nanotube (CNT) turf - a complex network of intertwined CNTs.  Their excellent mechanical, electrical and thermal properties...

  7. Piezoelectric Nanoribbon Assemblies Printed onto Rubber for Highly Efficient, Flexible Energy Harvesting

    04 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Michael C. McAlpine

      The research objective of this proposal is the hierarchical assembly of highly efficient nanoengineered piezoelectric materials onto rubber and plastic to harvest biomechanical energy for...

  8. Measurement & Characterization of Hurricane Wind Loads on Structures Using a Wireless Sensing Networking System

    04 Jan 2011 | Poster | Contributor(s): Jean-Paul Pinelli

    A third generation of wireless sensors was developed to study wind-borne pressure variations in low-rise buildings during hurricanes. The system has the capability of measuring pressure and...
