  • 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 ...
  • Saba, Rami Elias (Lebanese American University, 2019-11-27)
    Corruption in public works construction is a problem that governments and political administrations have to contend with all over the world. Lebanon is no stranger to this situation with the country ranking in the most ...
  • Harb, Moustapha (King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, 2019-03-22)
    Conventional activated sludge-based wastewater treatment is an energy and resource-intensive process. Historically it has been successful at producing safely treated wastewater effluents in the developed world, specifically ...
  • Chatila, Jean Georges (University of Ottawa, 2017-12-01)
    The present research investigates the numerical and experimental modelling aspects of flow in compound channels, with special interest in the transport of inert pollutant aspects. This is examined through developing a 2-D ...
  • Salame, Charlie (Lebanese American University, 2020-12-14)
    The modern manufacturing industry needs to meet the growing demands of aerospace production, while adhering to increasingly strict environmental and sustainability constraints. Cryogenic machining is steadily gaining ...
  • Mansour, Charbel (École nationale supérieure des mines (Paris), 2021-02-26)
    L'objectif de cette thèse est d'évaluer le potentiel d'amélioration de l'économie de carburant des véhicules, par l'hybridation thermique/électrique du groupe motopropulseur (GMP). Plusieurs configurations sont d'abord ...
  • Zouein, Pierette (University of Michigan, 2018-09-17)
    Site layout planning is crucial for enhancing the overall efficiency of construction operations and for reducing materials (re)location costs. More importantly, it helps identify construction time periods with potential ...
  • Akle, Barbar J. (V irginia Polytechnic Institute and State U niversity, 2018-01-22)
