One of the most common bridge types in Alabama is the multi-span bridge with precast girders and intermediate bents consisting of driven steel piles and a reinforced concrete cap. Due to its common use, effective analysis ...

Experimental Testing of a Rotational Friction Connection for Use with Precast Concrete Cladding Panels in Metal Building Systems 

Sellers, Vincent (2017-11-27)
Lightweight clad metal building systems have been shown to exhibit excellent performance in seismic events; however, metal building systems clad in masonry or precast concrete panels (hard walls) have been shown through ...

Experimental woodsmoke exposure during exercise and an evaluation of blood oxidative stress 

Peters, Bridget (2015-05-18)
Introduction: Woodsmoke exposure and exercise elicit oxidative stress in blood. The purpose of this investigation was to understand the effects of woodsmoke exposure on blood oxidative stress measures. Methods: Ten males ...

Experimentation and Modeling of NOx Formation in a Small Turbo-Charged Diesel Engine 

Thames, Matthew (2012-12-05)
In this thesis a detailed investigation into the primary formation characteristics and modeling approaches for the formation of NOx in turbo-charged diesel engines is presented. Through this investigation a multi-layered ...

Experiments on the Pond Lime Requirement Test and the Effect of Organic Matter on Dissolution of Agricultural Limestone in Aquaculture Ponds 

Han, Yangxue (2018-11-27)
Three investigations were performed related to limestone in aquaculture. The first investigation studied the lime requirement of ponds can be determined by direct titration with standard sulfuric acid of the amount of ...

Explaining Pharmacists' Intentions to use Personal Digital Assistants as Clinical Resources During Patient Care Interventions 

Fox, Brent (2005-05-15)
This research project explored the ability of a modified Technology Acceptance Model 2 (TAM2) to explain pharmacists’ intentions to use personal digital assistants (PDAs) to document interventions. The Technology Acceptance ...

Explaining State Adoption of Performance Funding in Higher Education, 1990 - 2020: A Comparative State Policy Study 

Sears, Towanna (2022-12-05)
In the past 40 years, performance funding has become a state policy reaction for the demand of transparency for public higher education institutions. State legislatures have adopted performance funding as a mechanism to ...

Explaining Workaholism’s Effects on Work-Family Conflict: A Boundary Theory Approach 

Rotch, Michael (2021-07-19)
This research examines the linking mechanisms and conditional processes underlying the workaholism and work-family conflict relationship. Based primarily on the boundary management literature, it was hypothesized that ...

An Explanatory Study to Measure the Effect of an Expanded Target Interface for a Handheld Medication Order Entry Task 

Young, Marc (2006-12-15)
This research experiment intended to determine whether an expanded target interface could improve a medication order task entered on a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA) compared to a standard interface. Subjects in this ...

Explicit and Implicit Instruction of Discourse Markers to Heritage Speakers of Spanish 

Cuartero Marco, Marina (2019-04-22)  ETD File Embargoed
The controversy of using Explicit and Implicit Instruction is widely discussed in the field of Second Language Acquisition (SLA). SLA research generally addresses more salient linguistic elements, than less noticeable ones, ...

Explicit Finite Element Modeling in Conjunction with Digital Image Correlation Based Life Prediction of Lead-Free Electronics under Shock-Impact 

Shantaram, Sandeep (2009-08-12)
