This project continues a theme of 40+ years of research started as a graduate student. The DLAI in its current manifestation is a collection of the first 2 editions of the Dictionary of Latin American Racial and Ethnic Terminology, for which I was the sole author. DLAI is a collaboration between me and John Maddox, a scholar at the University of Alabama Birmingham; the first paper edition was published in summer 2021. As we move further into the 21st century, it is abundantly clear to us that (...)

Bridge decks are the most critical element of the highway infrastructure for maintaining it in the state of good repair. Steel orthotropic bridge decks (SOBD) have the potential for improving durability and extending service life of highway bridges. Steel orthotropic bridge decks are a stiffened steel plate deck system that is integral with the primary floor framing of the bridge superstructure. The deck plate for SOBD are stiffened by elements having open or close sections. Accordingly, the orthotropic (...)

Bridge decks are the most critical element of the highway infrastructure for maintaining it in the state of good repair. An innovative layered steel deck system, steel sandwich plate (SSP) deck, is being developed under this project for application to highway bridge structures, both existing and new. The deck consists of a corrugated core enclosed by plates. The envisioned deck system has several advantages: lightweight, prefabricated/modular, hermitically sealed, enables accelerated construction (...)

Over the five decades between the 1962 coastal storm and Hurricane Sandy, vacation home communities of the Jersey Shore experienced a great deal of development, mostly with relatively modest homes on small lots. These homes were in many cases owned by households of relatively modest means. In recent decades, market forces appear to have resulted in greatly escalating land values, relative to the value of the property improvements (the homes). This research project poses the hypothesis that high (...)

The goal of the project is to fabricate and test a humidity and gas sensor based on the response of single layer graphene to the adsorption of different molecules. The students will learn to synthesize graphene using chemical vapor deposition and then transfer the graphene layers onto a Si wafer capped with a SiO2 layer. They will proceed to fabricate a device to demonstrate humidity and gas sensing by using the change of the electrical resistance in response to various molecules. Finally the studentys (...)
