  • Johnson, Alyssa R., 1993-- (Northern Illinois University, 2016-12-02)
    The purpose of this thesis is to explore the role of behavior management techniques in the classroom and to determine if students learn best in a student-centered classroom or a teacher-centered classroom. This exploration ...
  • Hasan, Sana M., 1993-- (Northern Illinois University, 2016-12-10)
    According to the CDC, there were 5.2 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease in 2013 (CDC 2013). That number is expected to nearly triple in 2050 as the baby boomer generation reaches retirement age. Underutilization ...
  • Moraga, Roxana; Hosmane, Narayan S. (Northern Illinois University, 2016-12-27)
    ABSTRACT: Synthesis of Lithium Intercalated Boron Nitride Nanotubes (Li-BNNT) was conducted in an attempt to gain access to their promising applications for electronics, lithium batteries, hydrogen storage, and supercapacitors. ...
  • Martin, Rachel L., 1995-- (Northern Illinois University, 2016-12-06)
    This research examines the recovery of the employment rate in non-metropolitan Illinois and the Midwest after the Great Recession. Data from the 2010 U.S. Census as well as the Bureau of Labor Statistics was used to compile ...
  • Schibelka, Mary Claire (Northern Illinois University, 2013)
    As a special educator, it is one’s goal to ensure that students are as successful after high school as possible. This means that teachers are responsible for making sure their students have appropriate social, functional, ...
  • Nwaiwu, Sebastine (Northern Illinois University, 2009)
    The energy poverty being witnessed in many developing countries and the fear of a deteriorating environment are some of the factors driving the nuclear renaissance. Over the years, global energy demand has continued to ...
  • Hill, James (Student of mechanical engineering) (Northern Illinois University, 2006)
    The main goal of this project is to design and implement a reliable testing method for the efficiency of rotational deaerators. The efficiency can be determined by monitoring the percentage of air the deaerator removes ...
  • Kane, Thomas J. (Student of mechanical engineering) (Northern Illinois University, 1992)
    A working model for a thermal anemometry system compatible with the TSI brand probe and control box that provides a digital readout of both wind speed and direction was constructed. The design was intended to (1) eliminate ...
  • Julkowski, Adam (Northern Illinois University, 2007)
    Typically, freecoasters are used in BMX street-riding applications. The freecoaster is a mechanism found in the rear hub of a bicycle which allows a bicycle to roll backwards without the bikes' pedals having to move along ...
  • Papp, Dan (Northern Illinois University, 1993)
    I conducted an analysis to determine the ergonomic stressors placed on an employee during a grinding operation. A review of a videotape filmed of the operation indicated that the employee's discomfort was probably related ...
  • Houtakker, Bradley (Northern Illinois University, 1989)
    The following is a basic summary of the commands needed to execute FORTRAN programs on a personal computer (PC). A few basic DOS commands are covered along with the basics to Wordstar. There is a sample program to illustrate ...
  • Crow, Andrew (Northern Illinois University, 2005)
    The objective ofthis project is to create a walking robot employing a cam controlled leg. The cam controlled walker was first theorized in the Master's Thesis of Xiaonan Wan of Northern Illinois University. The principle ...
  • Sethna, Sohrab B. (Northern Illinois University, 2008)
    The deaerator is a mechanical device that is used to separate air from oil. The deaerator is a component of the Integrated Drive Generator (IDG). The Integrated Drive Generator is used in aircrafts as the main power ...
  • Jaskoviak, Dennis (Northern Illinois University, 1999)
    A heat sink was designed and built which removed 100 watts of heat from a simulated computer processor with dimensions similar to the Intel Pentium Il processor. Forced convection of the 3-M heat transfer fluid FC-72 was ...
  • Lindvall, Johan G. E. (Northern Illinois University, 2011)
    While training for a triathlon, 6-hour bike rides come with the territory. As a result, protein-based drinks are a must to keep nourished. Currently, the only way to keep a drink from spoiling is to have an insulated bottle. ...
  • Beckendorf, Alexander (Northern Illinois University, 2008)
    This project was conducted with the sole intention of creating an aircraft to compete in the Society of Automotive and Aerospace Engineers (SAE) Aero Design Series open class competition in Marietta, Georgia. Beginning in ...
  • Patel, Bhavini (Northern Illinois University, 2003)
    This paper examines the effects, causes, symptoms, prevention methods, and treatments of osteoporosis. Various forms of literature including journal articles and books were used to research this topic. The information ...
  • Wirtz, Adam (Northern Illinois University, 2006)
    The purpose of this project is to develop an automatically temperature and flow controlled faucet/shower system. The system should allow a user to pre-select a temperature for their comfort. The system should automatically ...
  • Woodward, William (Student of mechanical engineering) (Northern Illinois University, 2007)
    A turbocharger designed to increase intake pressure of an internal combustion engine using the hot exhaust gas has two of the four major components of a simple turbojet engine. The turbine side of the turbocharger can be ...
  • Guethle, Marcus (Northern Illinois University, 2007)
    Typically, freecoasters are used in BMX street-riding applications. The freecoaster is a mechanism found in the rear hub of a bicycle which allows a bicycle to roll backwards without the bikes' pedals having to move along ...
