  • Hammour, Hiba (Lebanese American University, 2022-08-23)
    The thesis addresses the high end private residential projects in Lebanon, and discusses the reasons for projects’ change orders. This research aims to determine the reasons for change orders, the party responsible for ...
  • Mattouk, Patrick Elias (2011-04-18)
  • Issa, Jimmy (Michigan State University, 2018-09-17)
    In this work, the Marciniak and Kuczynski model (MK) will be reviewed and will be generalized to a more general approach for the calculation of forming limit diagrams. In the new model we will account for all directions ...
  • Tabbara, Mazen (Northwestern University, 2018-09-17)
    The principal object of investigation is the behavior of structures with softening load-displacement curves. The study deals with three interrelated areas: (1) a model for fracture of aggregate composites, (2) stability ...
  • Chami, Mohammad (Lebanese American University, 2018-03-06)
    We explore the performance of N-user multi-point-to-multi-point Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems. For such systems, the communication between the N transmitters and N receivers relies on user grouping for ...
  • Bkassiny, Mario (2010-12-20)
    Local Area Networks (LAN’s) are being expanded over large geographic areas and they are used in many business fields. Thus, communication links between buildings are to be optimized in order to achieve high transmission ...
  • Habchi, Wassim (L’Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon, 2018-01-02)
    In this thesis, a full-system finite element approach to elastohydrodynamic (EHD) lubrication problems is introduced. EHD lubrication is a full-film regime where the pressure generated in the conjunction is high enough to ...
  • Sabbagh, Mona Majzoub (2015-02-26)
    While the graphic novel is becoming a well-established genre in the West with its own definitions, bi-cultural authors develop a new West Asian trajectory, both in form and subject, from their own displacements as well as ...
  • Ouaiss, Iyad Elias (University of Cincinnati, 2018-02-07)
    A Reconfigurable Computer (RC) is a hardware platform that typically includes several programmable devices, memory devices, and possibly specialized devices such as analog-to-digital converters. Such high-performance ...
  • Nakad, Zahi (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, 2018-01-19)
    Many problems faced in the engineering world are computationally intensive. Filtering using FIR (Finite Impulse Response) filters is an example to that. This thesis discusses the implementation of a fast, reconfigurable, ...
  • Amine, Kamar Ali (Lebanese American University, 2018-10-15)
    This research investigates the potential changes in the geometric design of highway elements in response to a fully autonomous vehicle fleet. When driverless vehicles completely replace conventional vehicles, the human ...
  • Khabbaz, Maurice (2011-10-06)
    The IEEE 802.11 Medium Access Control (MAC) gained widespread popularity as a layer-2 protocol for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). While the continuous lack of accurate analytical 802.11 MAC models as well as the ...
  • Noun, Zeina K. (2016-04-06)
    In recent times, FSO (Free Space Optics) technology placed itself as a powerful means to transport data in communication systems. Its great potential to provide relatively high data rates services amongst many other ...
  • Haddad, Marc George (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2017-12-08)
    The development of complex products requires widespread knowledge interactions among a significant number of individuals and teams designing numerous interrelated components. Increasing product complexity typically leads ...
  • Al Kawam, Ahmad (2016-03-03)
    We introduce the K-way Thermal Chip Clustering (KT2C) algorithm; a VLSI chip partitioning algorithm that is used to reduce the chip’s temperature and prevent the formation of hotspots. The clustering algorithm is integrated ...
  • Kaafarani, Rouba (Lebanese American University, 2020-08-18)
    Human activities are continuously altering the geometry and steepness of natural slopes. When left exposed and unprotected, these slopes become susceptible to slide due to natural triggering factors like earthquakes and ...
  • Toukhtarian, Raffi (2013-09-03)
    Controlling a plant and automatically driving its output to track a user-defined reference trajectory with sufficiently small error has been an important problem in control theory and application. This problem is referred ...
  • Nassar, Dina (Lebanese American University, 2020-12-21)
    Wastewater treatment is an essential life process that enhances water quality as population and urbanization are increasing proportionally. The increase in population alongside the increase of wastewater treatment plants’ ...
  • Al Sobbahi, Rayan (Lebanese American University, 2021-05-11)
    Low-light image (LLI) enhancement is an important image processing task that aims at improving the illumination of images taken under low-light conditions. Recently, a remarkable progress has been made in utilizing deep ...
  • Abou-Jaoude, Grace (Delft University of Technology, 2018-07-02)
    ‘Machinic Utopias, Automated Futures’ speculates on the role of designers as active agents addressing the potential implications of automated technologies on urban space in the specific context of the horticultural production ...
