  • Sand dispersion in a laboratory flume 

    Contributor:Yang, Tsung;
    Date Submitted:1968
    This study is concerned mainly with the longitudinal dispersion of sand particles along the bed of an alluvial channel under conditions of steady, uniform flow. Attention is focused on developing a general one-dimensional ...
  • Low-sensitivity active filter design 

    Contributor:Geiger, Randall Lee;
    Date Submitted:1977
    At high frequencies, the performance of active filters is impaired by the frequency dependent nature of the operational amplifiers. Much research has been devoted to the design of active filters with reduced dependence on ...

    Contributor:Currier, Mary Jean Pfile;
    Date Submitted:1979
    The objectives of this study were: (1) to devise a method for estimating the ages of individual, wild-caught mountain lions, (2) to identify the normal ranges of various physiological and morphological parameters in the ...
  • Clonal multiplication of carnation by micropropagation 

    Contributor:Davis, Michael Jay;
    Date Submitted:1975
    Clonal multiplication of carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus L.) was accomplished in three stages: (1) shoot tip culture initiation, (2) shoot multiplication , and (3) rooting stages . Shoot tips approximately 1 mm in height, ...
  • Ethnicity and mobility orientations : a study of the Mexican-Americans of Southern Colorado 

    Contributor:Ward, Valerie Lynn;
    Date Submitted:1972
    Data analyzed in this study are from questionnaire responses of 645 Mexican American high school students from schools in southern Colorado. The sample included both males and females at the junior and senior levels. The ...
  • Statistical properties of dune profiles 

    Contributor:Nordin, Jr., Carl F;
    Date Submitted:1968
    Properties of sand waves formed by subcritical unidirectional water currents are investigated by statistical analyses of records of streambed profiles. Records of bed elevation y as a function of distance x along the ...
  • Investigation of wet and dry years by runs 

    Contributor:Saldarriaga, Jaime;
    Date Submitted:1969
    A technique is advanced for testing the structure of time series, with the basic statistical parameter being the mean run-length. This technique is shown to be distribution-free, as opposed to other techniques of investigation ...
  • A simple ice phase parameterization 

    Contributor:Stephens, Mark Argyle;
    Date Submitted:1979
    A two variable ice parameterization was developed for use in three dimensional models of cumulonimbus clouds and mesoscale squall lines. Bulk water techniques were employed to simulate the growth and decay of snow crystals ...
  • Physical mechanisms of extra area effects from weather modification 

    Contributor:Mulvey, G. (Gerald);
    Date Submitted:1977
    One of the complexities of weather modification, namely extra area effects have long posed an opportunity for the long-term control of the earth's weather. This study investigates the physical mechanisms by which cloud ...
  • Aluminum sculpture : assemblage compositions in full mold sand casting 

    Contributor:Stroh, Dennis Lee;
    Date Submitted:1979
    These works attempt to convey visual situations that are disquieting in their exploration of space, visually unstable through apparent tenuous balance, or fragile in quality. The aspects of potential change and fragility ...
  • Sculptural forms in metal 

    Contributor:Molliconi, Michael Alan;
    Date Submitted:1979
    The concern of this thesis is with the creation of sculptural forms expressing the synthesis of organic and geometric silhouettes. The thesis work is centered on arrangements of silhouetted shapes as abstracted from my ...
  • Scour at culvert outlets 

    Contributor:Opie, Thomas Roy;
    Date Submitted:1967
    The procedures used in, and results of, experiments to determine the size and geometry of scour holes in flat, loose rock beds at culvert outlets are given. A review of four recent approaches to the problem is also included. ...
  • Botanical environments 

    Contributor:Corwin, Elizabeth Jane;
    Date Submitted:1977
    In creating an environment for botanical life, I have used clay and plants which are both harmonious and complimentary to each other. The milieu created can be directly associated with my close personal involvement with ...
  • Non-objective, two-dimensional, multi-planar space via line, form and color 

    Contributor:Radding, Rosanna;
    Date Submitted:1979
    Transcendence of the inherent flat orientation of a two dimensional format and interrelation of opposites are the major objectives of my work. Visual references are extended through line, color and shape enabling one's eye ...
  • Petrology and structure of a portion of the pЄ Mullen Creek metaigneous mafic complex, Medicine Bow Mountains, Wyoming 

    Contributor:Donnelly, Michael Edward;
    Date Submitted:1979
    The Mullen Creek mafic complex, located in the central Medicine Bow Mountains of Wyoming, is a Precambrian sequence of layered metaigneous mafic rocks intruded by several small, irregular plutons of felsic composition. The ...
  • Painted pots : the relationship of forms through surface, textural and color interaction 

    Contributor:Ortiz, Michael Raymond;
    Date Submitted:1978
    I wish to show in my work, that it is possible to combine the qualities of painting and sculpture into ceramic form. This involves the integration of the surface and form in such a way as to enhance one another. I see ...
  • Acoustic scattering by fluid spheres 

    Contributor:Frey, Harlan Glen;
    Date Submitted:1962
    The problem of scattering of acoustic waves and pulses by an elastic sphere embedded in an infinite elastic medium is investigated for the case where the two media are very similar acoustically. This physical situation ...
