Semi-analytic models of flow in large-scale fractures with corrugated walls immersed in the porous medium

In this project the full set of Navier Stokes equations in a long fracture with wavy walls will be solved asymptotically. The fracture's walls are wavy and fluid passes through them and enters into the fracture. The fracture geometry will be mapped to a cylindrical geometry and the flow equations will be solve in this new system. The objective is to determine the effective permeability of the fracture. ...

How presidential candidate TV ads use news evidence

Many presidential campaign TV spots include mentions of news-mediated evidence. (Example: The New York Times says (fill in candidate's name) once smoked pot with Oscar the Grouch.) Ads use this third-party evidence, of course, because people generally don't trust political ads -- and third-party evidence, especially from a news organization, is more likely to be trusted. The question is: How often is this news evidence distorted from the news organization's original meaning? This content analysis requires us to find all the political ads that mention a news source, find the news content, and then determine whether it was used "correctly." We hope to analyze all the presidential spots we can find from 2008, 2012 and 2016. We need p...

Online Monitoring System for Concrete Structures Affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR)

Students will be tasked with assistant a graduate student with fabricating reinforced and unreinforced concrete specimens for this project funded by the Department of Energy to study how to monitor the progress of alkali-silica reaction in concrete structures. This project is a collaborative effort with researchers at Nebraska, South Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Idaho National Laboratory. It involves research at the intersection of construction materials, mechanics, structural health monitoring, and geochemistry. There will be opportunities to meet faculty and students from these different institutions. Initial tasks will include fabricating formwork, tying rebar, installing instrumentation, batching materials for concrete mixes, and as...

Microcontroller based sensors

There are multiple projects that deal with interfacing of sensors to microcontrollers (MSP430, STM32). Skills in hardware and software interfacing are needed. These skills may include: microcontroller programming, PCB design, 3D design, sensor prototyping, smartphone programming, etc. Some of the projects may be taken for class credit in the research scholars program, some are paid positions. The paid positions typically are on time cards, but do not pay for time, but rather for the final result. Previous projects like this resulted in students writing papers and presenting them at various conferences. One project took the second place at student paper competition at IEEE Southeastcon, another took 3rd place (and a $5000 award) at TI Innov...

Use of LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) in Geological Research

During the past 3 years, I have been conducting natural fracture analysis research on the Chattanooga shale rock outcrops in Northeastern Alabama with using LIDAR, a Light Detection and Ranging equipment, which provides state-of-the art method to analyze natural fractures. The equipment images rock outcrops with high resolution, allowing precision and accuracy when evaluating fracture relationships. The Chattanooga shale has high concentrations of organic compounds and therefore is capable of producing natural gas from its natural fractures. This research will continue over the course of the spring, 2017 semester and beyond. The student involved in the project will not only learn how to operate the LIDAR equipment, but will also greatly i...
