  • University of Missouri Chemical Engineering 1903 to 2013 : a history from the beginning 

    Storvick, Truman S., 1928- (University of Missouri, Department of Chemical Engineering, 2013-09-11)
    This treatise is a history of the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Missouri. It covers the years 1903 to 2013 and includes the successful development of the Nuclear Engineering Graduate Program, the ...
  • Gravitational ionization: a chaotic net in the Kepler system 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David (American Institute of Physics, 1997-03)
    The long-term nonlinear dynamics of a Keplerian binary system under the combined influences of gravitational radiation damping and external tidal perturbations is analysed. Gravitational radiation reaction leads the binary ...
  • Modification, Degradation, and Stability of Polymeric Surfaces Treated with Reactive Plasmas 

    Weikart, Christopher M. (Christopher Michael), 1972-; Yasuda, H. (Journal of Polymer Science: Part A: Polymer Chemistry, 2000-07-11)
    The degradation, modification, and stability of polymeric surfaces exposed to chemically reactive O2 and H2O-vapor plasmas were investigated. Specifically, the effects of these plasmas on etching rate, surface morphology, ...
  • Evolutionary dynamics while trapped in resonance: a Keplerian binary system perturbed by gravitational radiation 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David (American Institute of Physics, 1997-07)
    The method of averaging is used to investigate the phenomenon of capture into resonance for a model that describes a Keplerian binary system influenced by radiation damping and external normally incident periodic gravitational ...
  • Chaos in the Kepler system 

    Chicone, Carmen Charles; Mashhoon, Bahram; Retzloff, David (American Institute of Physics, 1999-02)
    The long-term dynamical evolution of a Keplerian binary orbit due to the emission and absorption of gravitational radiation is investigated. This work extends our previous results on transient chaos in the planar case to ...
