Roosevelt at Pomona College
President Theodore Rooseveolt gives a speech to a crowd from a platform constructed in front of Pearsons Hall. College officials and dignitaries sit on the platform behind the president. A giant American flag hangs over the entrance to Pearsons Hall and people watch from the windows.

Winter Twig Key
This interactive key to deciduous trees is based on winter twig images and is modified from a dichotomous key by E. Lucy Braun. Winter Twig Key combines side by side images of twigs with contrasting features emphasized by text and field marks. You choose the image that has the general feature most like the twig you are trying to identify and click on the image to display a new page with more choices until an identification to genus is reached. At the top of each page, the previous descriptive
The Search for the Hereditary Molecule
Using this simulation, you can manipulate virtual tubes of bacteria in a virtual lab to discover the transforming principle and recreate classic experiments in the discovery of DNA. How was the hereditary molecule isolated and identified? What decisions do we need to make as we recreate the lab work of researchers like Oswald Avery and his colleagues?
Redesign of SPAN 1B-N, PA S. R. 0095 Segment 0300 using ductile-hybrid fiber reinforced polymer reba
The deterioration of transportation facilities has become a major concern in todayâ s society due to their age and increased use. Many existing bridges require rehabilitation to their concrete bridge decks and even new bridges will require repair or replacement within fourteen years of construction. These conditions are the result of the use of steel reinforcement in the concrete, which despite its high strength, ductility, low cost, and availability, is highly susceptible to corrosion. The ne
Cnoidal and sinusodail wave reflection from a laboratory sand beach
This study focuses on the evolution of accretional beach profiles under cnoidal and sinusoidal waves and on the reflection of those waves from the sand beach. The SUPERTANK test, STi0, conducted at Oregon State University in 1991 was reproduced at three different scales, 1:10, 1:8.5 and 1:11. Two tests were run at each scale by using sinusoidal and cnoidal waves. The results are compared and differences discussed for: energy spectra, reflection coefficients, phase angles between incident and ref

H [infinity symbol]/H2/Kalman filtering of linear dynamical systems via variational techniques with
Filtering of linear dynamical systems has historically been accomplished through the application of the Kalman filter. The Kalman filter has a minimum mean squared error type performance for linear systems with stochastic inputs. In practice, the Kalman filter has been adapter for use with systems outside its usual solution set. For example, the extended Kalman filter for nonlinear systems. While the Kalman filter has been rather successful in general, practical applications have found that mode
Probabilistic approach for sensor fault detection and identification (A)
Operation performance of chemical, petrochemical and biochemical processes can be enhanced considerably by an integrated advisory system that is capable of performing simultaneous tasks of (1) instrument fault detection and identification and (2) process fault detection and diagnosis. Lack of such advisory system, at present, is due to the fact that one of the assumptions of normal process operation and functional sensors is always required in existing methods that perform tasks 1 and 2. This di
Organic-inorganic hybrid mesoporous silica materials and their application as host matrix for protei
Transparent, organic-inorganic hybrid mesoporous silica materials have been prepared successfully via the acid-catalyzed hydrolysis and cocondensation of tetramethyl orthosilicate and various organosiloxanes via the nonsurfactant templated sol-gel process. The organic groups were attached to the silica matrix via the non-hydrolyzable Si-C covalent bond and functioned as network modifier. The synthetic conditions have been systematically studied and optimized. Nitrogen adsorption and transmission

Going around in circles!: around and about a geometric figure
Geometry can be an exercise arena for strengthening those logic muscles that middle school students need to flex. When we work with a geometric figure—a circle, for instance—and apply the ancient tools of compass and straightedge, geometry can become a rich ground for developing design. And a circle has size, so a unit on this topic necessarily brings in the mathematics of its measurement. Circles, then, is a geometric topic that can provide mental challenge, opportunity for artistic develop
Gulag: Many Days, Many Lives
Millions of prisoners suffered the brutal assault on human dignity that was the Gulag. Many Days, Many Lives presents the history of this system through a browseable archive of video, art, artifacts, photographs, and the life stories of former Gulag prisoners. Online exhibitions take visitors on a thematic exploration of Gulag life, including a virtual tour of the reconstructed camp and museum made possible by the Gulag Museum at Perm-36. Teaching resources for introducing the Gulag's history in
