A Theoretical Analysis of the Velocity Fields in Eccentric Annuli
<p>A theoretical analysis of the velocity and wall shear stress distributions for fully developed turbulent flow in annular passages is reported in this thesis. The study was carried out for a range of eccentricities from...
Pressure Dependence of Hydrogenolysis of Propane over Supported Ruthenium
<p> The hydrogenolysis of propane over 0.5 weight percent ruthenium
supported on (see symbol in text)-alumina in a continuous stirred-tank catalytic reactor was studied at various pressures and temperatures. </p> <p>...
CNDO/2 Calculations on Low-Lying Electronic States of Acetone and Formaldehyde
<p> Various low-lying electronic states of formaldehyde
and acetone have been investigated, using molecular orbital calculations,
to determine their involvement in the photochemical system. The potential
energy surfaces of these...
Evapotranspiration Estimates from the Water Balance and Equilibrium Models
<p> This thesis examines the field performance of the water balance and equilibrium evapotranspiration models, and defines the environmental conditions for which they provided accurate estimates of water loss from a corn crop ...
Body Temperature Regulation During Heat Stress in the Pregnant Rat
<p> Body temperature regulation at high ambient temperatures was compared in pregnant and non-pregnant female albino rats. At an ambient temperature of 40°C, pregnant rats maintained lower body temperatures than non-pregnant rats w...
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.
