ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations


This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries.

In this thesis, a FORTRAN code is rewritten in C++ with an object oriented ap- proach. There are several reasons for this purpose. The first reason is to establish the basis of a GPU programming. To write programs that utilize GPU hardware, CUDA or OpenCL is used which only support C and C++. FORTRAN has a feature that lets its programs to call C/C++ functions. FORTRAN sends relevant data to C/C++, which in turn sends that data to OpenCL. Although this approach works, it makes the code messy and bulky and in the end more difficult to deal with. More- …

Recent studies of the occurrence of post-flutter limit cycle oscillations (LCO) of the F-16 have provided good support to the long-standing hypothesis that this phenomenon involves a nonlinear structural damping. A potential mechanism for the appearance of nonlinearity in the damping are the nonlinear geometric effects that arise when the deformations become large enough to exceed the linear regime. In this light, the focus of this investigation is first on extending nonlinear reduced order modeling (ROM) methods to include viscoelasticity which is introduced here through a linear Kelvin-Voigt model in the undeformed configuration. Proceeding with a Galerkin approach, the ROM …
