Air muscles are simple pneumatic devices that have high potential to be used as robotic manipulators, as they have a behavior similar to biological motors or muscles. Hence, they have a wide range of potential applications in areas such as robotics, bio-robotics, biomechanics, and... READ MORE
The objective of this project is to develop and test two qualitative flood risk models for use in first responder and planning roles. The first, the Obstruction Detection Model (ODM), uses Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) derived Digital Elevation Models (DEMs) and a slope... READ MORE
A solid silver – ligand complex, m-oxolato-bis(ethylenediaminesilver(I)) was developed for formulating particle-free conductive inks. The complex has approximately 47% silver content by weight and is soluble in ink-jet compatible polar solvents. Aqueous ink formulations for the inkjet printing was developed to print uniform films on... READ MORE
High blood pressure blood pressure is an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease and affects almost one-third of the U.S. adult population. Historical cuff-less non-invasive techniques used to monitor blood pressure are not accurate and highlight the need for first principal models. The first... READ MORE
A study was conducted to choose a new resin for the BP Castro( bottle-making process. Four resins were tested using the standard 10-week stack test: ExxonMobil HY A30 I (the control), Chevron Marlex 9512H, Dow DMDA 6200, and BP Solvay HPS0-25-155. The study focused on... READ MORE
