  • Maher, Jill; Michael, Hu (Journal of Current Issues and Research in Advertising, 2003)
    This study examines the effects of consumers' internal contexts on judgments and evaluations of the advertised product. Here, the context refers to the material values of the consumer. Experimental findings illustrate that ...
  • Childs, Nancy M.; Maher, Jill K. (British Food Journal, 2003)
    Examines advertisers’ use of gender in food advertising to children. Previous studies of gender preference in children’s advertising suggest gender bias exists. Food products are most often gender‐neutral. Advertising for ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Balazs, Anna C (PHYSICAL REVIEW E, 2003-03-14)
    We couple a morphological study of a mixture of diblock copolymers and spherical nanoparticles with a micromechanical simulation to determine how the spatial distribution of the particles affects the mechanical behavior ...
  • Al-Jaroodi, Jameela; Mohamed, Nader; Jiang, Hong; Swanson, David (IEEE, 2003-04)
    The current technologies have made it possible to execute parallel applications across heterogeneous platforms. However, the performance models available do not provide adequate methods to calculate, compare and predict ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Balazs, Anna C (PHYSICAL REVIEW B, 2004-02-09)
    Using computational models, we examine how shearing a binary polymer melt affects the dynamic fracture mechanics of the final solid material. The phase separation of the immiscible blend under an imposed shear is simulated ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Verberg, Rolf; Jasnow, David; Balazs, Anna C (PHYSICAL REVIEW E, 2005)
    We integrate the lattice Boltzmann model sLBMd and lattice spring model sLSMd to capture the coupling between a compliant bounding surface and the hydrodynamic response of an enclosed fluid. We focus on an elastic, spherical ...
  • Al Jarood, Jameela; Mohamed, Nader; Jiang, Hong; Swanson, David (Concurrency and computation: practice and experience, 2005-02-23)
    Recently there has been an increasing interest in developing parallel programming capabilities in Java to harness the vast resources available in clusters, grids and heterogeneous networked systems. In this paper, we ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Clarke, Nigel (PHYSICAL REVIEW E, 2005-07-27)
    We show how three-dimensional structures can be formed in polymer blends from pre-existing structures. “Tape” of one polymer is inserted into a matrix of an alternative polymer to form an array of parallelepipeds. We subject ...
  • Clark, John S.; Maher, Jill K. (Journal of Vacation Marketing, 2006)
    In many business situations, the primary focus of marketing activities can be viewed as developing and maintaining repeat patronage or loyalty from the firm’s customer base. Due to many alternatives for consumers, vacation ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Clarke, Nigel (PHYSICAL REVIEW E 73, 041801 2006, 2006)
    Dutcher films consist of a layer of liquid sandwiched between two solid capping layers and can spontaneously self-assemble to form corrugated surfaces. The interplay between the attractive van der Waals forces across the ...
  • Al Jarood, Jameela; Hadim, Salem; Mohamed, Nader (IEEE, 2006-01-13)
    For a while, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) use was limited to military applications, however recently UAVs are also used for a wide range of civilian applications. Some of the UAV applications may involve multiple UAVs ...
  • Synowka, D; Smith, Alan D; Manna, Dean R. (Journal of Business and Economics Research, 2006-04)
    The key to sustaining a competitive advantage through effective management is working with people. Especially dealing with sport management and marketing, concepts such as organizational culture and reputation are identifying ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Clarke, Nigel (PHYSICAL REVIEW B 74, 085207 2006, 2006-08-18)
    Plastic solar cells are attractive candidates for providing cheap, clean, and renewable energy. However, such devices are critically dependent on the internal structure, or morphology, of the polymer constituents. We have ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Clarke, Nigel (American Physical Society, 2006-10-18)
    We have developed a multiscale approach for simulating the concentration fluctuations in a miscible blend subject to complex flow dynamics. We first simulate the hydrodynamics of a fluid as it flows through porous media. ...
  • Maher, Jill; Motley, Darlene G (Leadership and Organization Development Journal, 2007)
    Purpose – The purpose of this study is to explore the intersection between managers’ learning strategies and their organizational leadership practices in a nonprofit context. Design/methodology/approach – Survey methodology ...
  • Kalevitch, Maria; Kefeli, Valentine I. (Scientific Journals International, 2007)
    Manufactured soil, also known as Fabricated Soil (FS), is a natural mixture of decaying substrates rich in aluminosilicate, carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium sources (complete composition and quantity cannot be ...
  • Al Jarood, Jameela (International Arab Journal of Information Technology, 2007-01)
    Current technologies and security advances have made networked systems and applications very popular and widely used. The pervasive and practical aspects of wireless Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANET) made them very popular ...
  • Buxton, Gavin A; Clarke, Nigel (PHYSICAL REVIEW LETTERS, 2007-06-07)
    From polymer gels to cytoskeletal structures, random networks of elastic material are commonly found in both materials science and biology. We present a three-dimensional micromechanical model of these networks and identify ...
  • Al Jarood, Jameela; Mohamed, Nader (The System and Information Sciences Notes, 2007-07)
    In this paper, we investigate the requirements and challenges of introducing mobility in large distributed systems. One major obstacle is resource discovery in the presence of mobile nodes. Collaborative resource discovery ...
  • Acharya, Sushil (ASEE Annual Conference, 2008)
    The first page of text has been automatically extracted and included below in lieu of an abstract Introduction Many engineering courses are taught through lecture-only sessions and students garner experiences through ...
