• Hamiltonian Systems of Hydrodynamic Type 

      Reynolds, A. Patrick (2010-12-23)
      We study the Hamiltonian structure of an important class of nonlinear partial differential equations: the so-called systems of hydrodynamic type, which are first-order in tempo-spatial variables, and quasi-linear. Chapters ...
    • On the Hydrodynamics of Anomalocaris Tail Fins 

      Sheppard, Kaley
      This thesis examines the hydrodynamic performance of a tail-fin abstraction of Anomalocaris canadensis, a large arthropod from the Cambrian period believed to have been an apex predator. Through direct force measurements ...
    • The Treatment of Benzene, Toluene, Ethylbenzene and o-Xylene Using Two-Phase Partitioning Bioscrubbers 

      Littlejohns, Jennifer (2009-08-20)
      This thesis examined the biological treatment of gas streams containing benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and o-xylene (BTEX) using solid-liquid two-phase partitioning bioscrubbers (SL-TPPBs). SL-TPPBs consist of a cell ...
