ix PREFACE This document is the final report of the findings and recommendations of the Blue Ribbon Panel on Simulation-Based Engineering Science. The report contains recommendations critical to the acceleration of advances in Simulation-Based Engineering Science (SBES), and it identifies several areas in which SBES can play a remarkable role in promoting(More)
Superconformal electrodeposition of copper is explained by the recently developed curvature-enhanced-accelerator coverage (CEAC) model, which is based on the assumptions that 1) the local growth velocity is proportional to the surface coverage of the accelerator, or catalyst, and 2) the catalyst remains segregated at the metal/electrolyte interface during(More)
The electronic structures of the three oxidation states of the " noninnocent " ligand 3,6-di-tert-butylorthoquinone (3,6-DTBQ) have been studied by nonlocal gradient-corrected density functional theory. Optimized structures obtained at the B3LYP/6-31G* and BLYP/6-31G* levels show that neutral 3,6-DTBQ has two equivalent CO double bonds and a nonaromatic(More)
Real world projects are imminent part of an effective capstone software engineering course. As capstone projects grow larger and more sophisticated, software engineering practices to control the complexity are needed. Involving students in real world projects is a great way to teach valuable software engineering skills. In this paper we present our(More)
