A lab study comparing several faking measures under a simulated selection context 

Yuan, Yuan (2015-07-24)
Industrial and organizational psychologists have long been aware that faking is a concern in the personnel selection practices. In high-stakes selection context, applicants can be highly motivated to fake good on personality ...

Laboratory and Field Characterization of Additive-Modified Asphalt Concrete Mixtures 

Kmetz, Matthew (2023-11-27)
There is a need for a more rapid system of evaluation and implementation for new and existing asphalt additives, especially due to the prohibitive cost of full-scale performance evaluations. To help to meet this need, ...

Laboratory and Field Measurements of Moisture Content and Bulk Electrical Conductivity of Subgrade and Base Course Materials 

Diekmann, Amy (2023-08-04)  ETD File Embargoed
Moisture content can impact the resilient modulus of pavement base course and subgrade layers. Given its influence on the post-inundation resilient moduli of the coastal pavement and base course and subgrade layers, it is ...

Laboratory and Field Testing of Precast, Three Sided Arch Culverts 

Meadows, Richard L. (2012-05-10)
The use of precast, three-sided arch culverts has become fairly popular for new short-span bridges and bridge replacements due to their rapid construction time, aesthetic appeal, and minimal impact to the waterway, but ...

Laboratory Evaluation of Heat Exchange Between Superheated Virgin Aggregate and Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement Material 

Gatiganti, Surendra Chowdari (2021-07-27)  ETD File Embargoed
The most common method of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) material processing in the production of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) in the United States is by using cold feed recycling. Superheating the virgin aggregates by hot gas ...

Laboratory Investigation of the Dynamics of Shear Flows in a Plasma Boundary Layer 

DuBois, Ami (2013-10-28)
The laboratory experiments presented in this dissertation investigate a regime of instabilities that occur when a highly localized, radial electric field oriented perpendicular to a uniform background magnetic field gives ...

Laboratory Performance Characterization of Asphalt Mixtures Containing Aging-Resistant Technologies 

Garita Jimenez, Josue (2024-05-06)
Incorporating various aging-resistant technologies to prevent the adverse effects of aging into asphalt mixtures is believed to slow down the oxidative aging process of asphalt binders and, therefore, asphalt mixtures. ...

Laboratory Refinement of 4.75 mm Superpave Designed Asphalt Mixtures 

Rausch, David (2006-12-15)
In 2004 a pooled fund study was initiated to refine mix design criteria for 4.75mm NMAS Superpave designed mixes and field validate design criteria. Nine states were participants in this study, Alabama, Connecticut, Florida, ...

Laboratory Scour Testing of Hard Cohesive Soils in Alabama 

Wright, William (2014-01-09)
Establishing scour parameters in order to estimate the loss of soil adjacent to bridge piers is a crucial element in the design of highway bridges crossing over rivers and streams. Although there are numerous design criteria ...

Laboratory Testing of Transverse Joints in Precast-Panel Bridge-Deck Replacement Systems 

Matthews, Jamieson (2017-08-17)
Out of the 614,387 bridges in the United States, 56,007 are structurally deficient (FHWA 2016). In many instances this structural deficiency relates to the deck of the bridge. Deck degradation is very common in bridges ...

Lactic Acid Production from Filamentous Algae grown using Aquaponics Wastewater 

Burgess, Nicholas (2021-01-07)
Algal Turf Scrubber (ATS) systems are a known method of treating nitrogen and phosphorous rich wastewater by cultivating green filamentous algae biomass. One novel source of this wastewater is from an aquaponics system, ...

The Lactocrine Hypothesis and Laser Microdissection: Evaluating Tissue-Specific Effects of Milk-Borne Factors on Gene Expression in the Neonatal Porcine Uterus 

Miller, Dori (2014-05-29)
In the pig, development of the uterus begins in utero and is promoted postnatally via communication of milk-borne bioactive factors (MbFs) that advance development of neonatal somatic tissues. The passage of MbFs from ...
