  • Active wing shaping control for an elastic aircraft 

    Nobleheart, Wilfred (Wichita State University. Graduate School, 2014-04-25)
    This paper discusses active wing shaping control strategies for an elastic aircraft, with highly flexible wings. The objective of in-flight wing shaping is to ensure that the local angle of attack distribution on the ...
  • Active wing shaping control of a morphing aircraft 

    Nobleheart, Wilfred (Wichita State University, 2014-02-13)
    This project performs the control system design of a passenger aircraft with highly flexible wings, being conceptualized by NASA. The flexible wings enable change of the wing twist and bending in flight so as to achieve ...
  • Active wing shaping control of an elastic aircraft 

    Nobleheart, Wilfred; Chakravarthy, Animesh; Nguyen, Nhan (IEEE, 2014-06-04)
    In recent years, lightweight materials have been adopted in airframe design as a means to reduce aircraft weight. These lightweight materials provide adequate strength and durability, but at the expense of reduced structural ...
  • Acuity-based nurse-staffing strategies for inpatient settings using a stochastic modeling approach 

    Eimanzadeh, Parisa (Wichita State University, 2016-04-29)
    The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) projects a deficit of 36 percent of registered nurses nationwide by 2020. The national nurse shortage along with rising patient acuity levels have led to an increase ...
  • Acute effect of 30 and 60 second static hamstring stretch on knee flexion strength 

    Carter, John W.; Dickinson, Jessica; Doty, Shawna; Mettling, Jason; Rohrberg, Justin (Wichita State University. Graduate School., 2008-03-25)
    This study was designed to determine if there is a difference in torque produced with a hamstring curl after a 30 second and 60 second passive static hamstring stretch. Our study included 50 participants (13 males, 37 ...
  • Acute effect of whole-body vibration on knee extensor strength 

    Swart, Brent (Wichita State University. Graduate School., 2012-04-18)
    The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of whole body vibration on knee extensor muscle strength. METHODS: Male college students (n=7) were recruited for the research study. Subjects performed baseline ...
  • Acute effects of dynamic and static stretching during warm-up on balance and agility for untrained adults 

    Nejati, Nazanin; Balarin, Gabriela Bendasoli; Gonzolas, Alex; Neal, Joseph (Wichita State University. Graduate School, 2015-04-24)
    Establishing an effective pre exercise routine is important when taking on physical activity. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine and compare the acute effects of static and dynamic stretching during warm-up ...
  • Acute effects of five-toed shoes on postural SWAY 

    Epps, Elizabeth J.; Staab, Carina A.; Patterson, Jeremy A. (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2013-05)
    The latest trend in athletic footwear is the five-toed running shoes. There are claims that the five-toed shoes will help develop strength and mechanical efficiency. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine ...
  • The acute effects of static stretching on leg extension power: Quadriceps torque production after a 30-second static stretch versus no stretch 

    Reiman, Michael P.; Gard, Jerod; Bastian, Steven; Lehecka, B.J.; Weber, Matt (Wichita State University. Graduate School., 2008-04-25)
    Traditionally, static passive stretching has been used by coaches and athletes as a warm-up technique in an attempt to promote better performances. However, the results of recent research have shown that passive muscle ...
  • The Acute Effects of Whole Body Vibration in College-Aged Individuals 

    Leisinger, Laura L. (Wichita State University. Graduate School, 2011-05-04)
    Whole-body vibration (WBV) training is a method of exercise where the individual is exposed to varying frequencies and amplitudes of mechanical vibratory stimuli. WBV training has shown to activate muscle spindle fibers ...
  • Ad-hoc networks and layer 2 tunnels 

    Baloch, Fariha; Strandmark, C.; Muralidhran, S.; Bhagavathula, Ravi; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 2004-09-26)
    The reach of an ad hoc network is very limited and researchers have studied this issue with great interest. A node that wants to send data to a remote node that is outside its transmission range depends on the intermediate ...
  • Ad-hoc nodes and internet connectivity using pseudo-wire interfaces 

    Thanthry, Nagaraja; Namuduri, Kameswara; Pendse, Ravi (IEEE, 2003-10-06)
    An increasing interest in supporting the nomadic nature of mobile nodes has lead to interesting ideas towards the deployment of Internet access to ad-hoc nodes. Most of the proposed solutions using mobile IP assume that ...
  • Adaptation of the Filipino family upon Immigration to the United States 

    Ramos Herrera, Dana D. (Wichita State University. Department of Anthropology, 1997)
