Microgravity Emergency Medical Containment System - A Concept of Architecture, Prototyping, and Usability Research
Exploration is intrinsic to human nature but is well understood to be accompanied by inherent risks to the explorer. This is particularly evident in the exploration of extreme environments such as long-duration space ...
Analysis of Fatty Acids in Chukchi Sea Sediments
The Arctic Ocean and its marginal seas are key areas for understanding the global climate system. Climate change causes increased terrigenous materials to be carried into the ocean as well as higher production of marine ...
Thermal Management Design of a 6U CubeSat with a High-Power Additive Manufacturing Payload Using Analytical Modeling with Experimental Validation
As the capacity of compact battery technology for spacecraft missions continue to improve, small payloads are less constrained by power limitations, thus relatively high-power applications may be considered. AddCube is ...
Flight Path Control During Hypersonic Atmospheric Entry Using Active Magnetic Arrays
The purpose of this thesis is to study the reaction to the Lorentz force induced during the hypersonic regime of flight by an active magnetic field. The effect that a magnetic array has on the flight characteristics of ...
Flight Testing of the Piper J4A Cub Coupe
Flight testing is an important part of in the airplane design process. This testing is performed to ensure that the airplane complies with the established requirements and regulations for flight safety, as well as to ...
Use of Garmin Autopilot Envelope Protection System for Simplified Vehicle Operations in General Aviation
The general aviation industry suffers from high rates of fatalities and accidents occurring due to loss of control while in flight. This thesis research aims to implement a simple yet effective simplified vehicle operations ...
Nonlinear Attitude Control for a 6U CubeSat with a Flexible, Deployable Boom
A satellite attitude control system was developed in MathWork’s Simulink for a 6U CubeSat with a flexible appendage payload. The flexible appendage is a boom that is able to store into a compact size and deploy out to 1 ...
Critical Elliptic Boundary Value Problems with Singular Trudinger-Moser Nonlinearities
In this dissertation, we prove the existence of solutions for two classes of eliptic problems that are critical with respect to singular Trudinger-Moser embedding. The proofs are based on compactness and regularity arguments.
Characterization of Written Text Using Data and Network Science
The success of humans cannot be attributed to language, but it is certainly true that language and humans are inseparable. Since the first language appeared, we have seen that language continually evolving over space and ...
Examining the Impact of Student Motivation on Performance in Mechanical Engineering Design Courses
Design courses are an integral component of undergraduate engineering education. Design is recognized as one of the primary responsibilities of an engineer in industry. New designs are responsible for stimulating sales ...
