On the Off-Energy-Shell Behaviour of the Nuclear Reaction Matrix
<p> Even with a good fit to nucleon-nucleon scattering data, there is considerable freedom in the off-energy-shell behaviour of the nuclear reaction matrix because of (1) the unavailability of the elastic scattering data in...
A Comparison of Freeway Flow-Occupancy Relationship
<p> Traffic operations can be described by the relationship that occurs between flow and occupancy. This paper investigates the flow-occupancy relationship of an Ontario system and a
Minnesota system to see if the same...
Nitrate Assimilation in Seedlings of Zea mays L.
<p> The experiments described in this thesis were performed to investigate the: 1. Role of nitrate in the growth of maize seedling and 2. Role of amino acids in the assimilation of nitrate
by the growing e...
Time Dependent Studies of a 19-Element CANDU Fuel Bundle in the Blanket of a Thermonuclear Reactor
<p> Effects in 19 element CANDU fuel bundles containing ThO2 and UO2, located in thermonuclear reactor blankets, have been examined for a variety of blanket designs. The buildup in time of nuclides derived from Th232 ...
The Aerodynamic Design and Testing of High Turning Angle Turbine Blades
<p> Continuous development of Gas Turbines to realise higher work output has necessitated the design of turbine blades having large turning angles.</p> <p> Improvements to existing calculation methods have been carried ...
MacSphere is·McMaster University’s Institutional Repository (IR). The purpose of an IR is to bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research. The research and scholarly output included in MacSphere has been selected and deposited by the individual university departments and centres on campus.
To contribute to McMaster's Institutional Repository, please sign on to MacSphere with your MAC ID. If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Scholarly Communication.
Students wishing to deposit their PhD or Masters thesis, please follow the instructions outlined by the School of Graduate Studies.
