  1. Perceptions of Mentoring Among Doctoral Students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics [STEM] Disciplines

    2r36tx71d?file=thumbnail
    Description: This study explored the mentoring experiences of doctoral students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) doctoral degree programs at Northwestern University. Research suggests that mentoring relationships support student success in STEM disciplines, and further, that lack of mentorship may be a barrier for female students. A mixed-methods approach employing...

  2. A Tutorial on Approaching the Topic Modeling of Bank Regulation

    6t053g09f?file=thumbnail
    Description: Regtech, a reference to the application of new technologies to bank regulation, mandates a conversation about reducing the burden of bank regulation by letting computers take over some of the handling of regulatory text. Bank regulations and the related manuals, guidance, or other supplements are mostly unstructured. Software tools and...

  3. Effects of Crack Width on Carbonation Penetration: Implications for Crack-Dating

    Xw42n794d?file=thumbnail
    Description: Carbonation, a neutralizing reaction in cement paste, can be used to date cracks in cementitious materials. Currently, comparison between two cracks is the only method available to predict a relative age with carbonation. These two crack studies require a crack of known age in a similar material with similar exposure...

  4. Optimization of Self Consolidating Concrete for Slip-form pavement

    9306sz34x?file=thumbnail
    Description: The concrete currently used in the slip-form paving process is a low slump concrete that requires both internal and external vibration in order to achieve satisfactory compaction. The use of vibrator fingers for the internal vibration often leads to trails on the surface of the pavement and to segregation around...

  5. Automated monitoring and inverse analysis of a deep excavation in Seattle

    8c97kq46t?file=thumbnail
    Description: Performance monitoring of deep excavations typically includes slope inclinometers, optical surveying of soil deformation, tiltmeters and strain gages. Current monitoring data collection and processing requires time consuming site visits and manual data reduction by project engineers. Development of robotic and remote access geotechnical instrumentation conceptually allows processed data to be...

  6. Numerical Simulation of Measured Time Domain Reflectormetry Signatures

    2z10wq29w?file=thumbnail
    Description: Experimental Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) data obtained from the field are compared with numerical simulations using a finite-difference solution of the transmission line equations. The model simulates transmission of a voltage pulse along a lossy coaxial cable where deformities on the cable, such as crimps and shears, are represented by...

  7. Finite Element Analysis of TDR Cable-Grout-Soil Mass Interaction During Localized Shearing

    Cr56n1010?file=thumbnail
    Description: This thesis combines field and laboratory measurements with three dimensional (3D) finite element analysis (FEM) to demonstrate the use of Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) cable-grout composites to measure localized shearing in soft soil. Past field installations of TDR cable-grout composites in rock have lead to its widespread use in the...

  9. Wireless Sensor Networks for Crack Displacement Measurement

    B2773v73c?file=thumbnail
    Description: Miniaturized, wireless instrumentation is now a reality and this thesis describes development of such a system to monitor crack response. Comparison of environmental (long-term) and blast-induced (dynamic) crack width changes in residential structures has lead to a new approach to monitoring and controlling construction vibrations. In wireless systems transducer power...
