A Direct Method to Measure Tropospheric Ozone by Absorption Spectroscopy in the Ultra-Violet Region
The Air Quality Act of 1967 placed a new and greater emphasis on the research and development of air pollution detecting and monitoring systems. By 1971, enough progress in this field had been made to allow the ...
The Diffraction of Acoustic Transients in the Nearfield of a Rectangular Aperture
Working on this SIP has been somewhat of a tightrope act, balancing my efforts between the theoretical and experimental aspects of the undertaking. If either aspect of my work seems over-emphasized in this report, it is ...
Inelastic Scattering of Fast Protons by He
The collision of energetic charged particles with atoms has been an important subject for atomic physicists since E. Rutherford first performed his experiment in 1910. In this paper, the collision of a fast proton with a ...
Maximum Entropy Spectral Analysis: Theory and Application
In this paper, I present the rationale for and the theory behind the maximum entropy method of spectral estimation for stochastic processes. The paper is divided into three sections I Introduction, Theory, and Computer ...
Computer Simulation of Weak Shock Propagation in a Shock-Tube
The purpose of this research was to become familiar with the iterative method and to apply this technique to further the understanding of the previous shock-tube experiments. It was anticipated that the previous results ...
Schlieren Photography of N-Waves about a Focus
The schlieren method is a relatively old technique. The first system has been accredited to Leon Foucault. Foucault designed the system in 1858 as a means of quality control in the manufacture of large objectives. Known ...
