Abstract:The move to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electric power system (EPS). The addition of numerous high-power electric loads has drastically altered the dynamics of… more
Abstract:Fish consumption has increased dramatically over the last 20 years. Unfortunately, this increase in demand for fish has resulted in an alarming depletion of the natural fisheries. With the closure of many marine fisheries due to over-harvesting and the increased domestic demand for fish it is… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): An estimated 23.6 million people (7 percent of the population) in the United States have diabetes; 90 to 95 percent of all diagnosed cases are type 2 diabetes (CDC, 2007). Obesity and metabolic syndrome are the leadingcauses of type 2 diabetes. The search for new… more

There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
