• A GIS model to rapidly predict probability of hurricane damage 

      Vaughan, Ryan Christopher (Mississippi State UniversityDepartment of Geosciences., 2011-04-28)
      Emergency managers are faced with the challenge of acting quickly after a hurricane but rarely have detailed information available about type and amount of damage. In response to this need, linear additive geospatial models ...
    • Experiments And Modeling Of Fatigue And Fracture Of Aluminum Alloys 

      Jordon, J. Brian
      In this work, understanding the microstructural effects of monotonic and cyclic failure of wrought 7075-T651 and cast A356 aluminum alloys were examined. In particular, the structure-property relations were quantified for ...
