Characterization And Modeling Of Thermal Protective And Thermo-Physiological Comfort Performance Of Polymeric Textile Materials—A Review, Sumit Mandal, Nur-Us-Shafa Mazumder, Robert J. Agnew, Guowen Song, Rui Li May 2021

Characterization And Modeling Of Thermal Protective And Thermo-Physiological Comfort Performance Of Polymeric Textile Materials—A Review, Sumit Mandal, Nur-Us-Shafa Mazumder, Robert J. Agnew, Guowen Song, Rui Li

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

In 2017, more than 60,000 firefighters and oilfield-workers injuries and fatalities occurred while they were working under various thermal hazards such as flame, radiant heat, steam, etc., or due to their significant heat stress related discomfort. The majority of these burn injuries and fatalities results from an inadequate protection and comfort provided by firefighters’ and oilfield-workers’ fire protective polymeric textile materials used in their workwear. Hence, both the thermal protective and thermo-physiological comfort performance of fabrics used in workwear significantly contribute to limit firefighters’ and oilfield-workers’ skin burns and heat stress. Considering this, previous studies have focused on characterizing ...


Money, Violence, And The Financialized Self In Michael Haneke's Glaciation Trilogy, William H. Carter Feb 2021

Money, Violence, And The Financialized Self In Michael Haneke's Glaciation Trilogy, William H. Carter

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This essay argues that Haneke's Glaciation Trilogy actively engages the mounting financialization of self during the late 1980s and early 1990s. Against the backdrop of Robert Bresson's 1983 film L'argent, which features the relatively new automated teller machine (ATM), the study analyzes the provocative destruction of money scene in Der siebente Kontinent (1989), the pyramid scheme and financial strategy of hedging against risk in Benny's Video (1992), and the violent denouement in a Viennese bank that concludes 71 Fragmente einer Chronologie des Zufalls (1994). While both Bresson and Haneke focus on money, the latter accentuates the ...

Gan-Based Fast, High Output Magnetic Field Pulser, Wei S. Theh, N. Prabhu Gaunkar, Mani Mina

Industrial Design Publications

Magnetic field pulsers (MFP) generate a pulsed magnetic field by driving current through an inductor. These pulsers have numerous applications based on the output magnetic flux density and switching time. This investigation will explore the application of gallium nitride-based (GaN) transistor in a MFP design. Based on the advantages of GaN transistors, the investigation looks towards creating a pulser capable of producing magnetic flux density of 500 Gauss with a rise/fall time of less than 500 nanoseconds. This investigation will improve upon findings from prior pulsers designed for magneto-optic switching applications. Simulation results have shown that for a given ...


Characterization And Modeling Of Thermal Protective Fabrics Under Molotov Cocktail Exposure, Sumit Mandal, Guowen Song, Rene M. Rossi, Indu B. Grover Jan 2021

Characterization And Modeling Of Thermal Protective Fabrics Under Molotov Cocktail Exposure, Sumit Mandal, Guowen Song, Rene M. Rossi, Indu B. Grover

Apparel, Events and Hospitality Management Publications

This study aims to characterize and model the thermal protective fabrics usually used in workwear under Molotov cocktail exposure. Physical properties of the fabrics were measured; and, thermal protective performances of the fabrics were evaluated under a fire exposure generated from the laboratory-simulated Molotov cocktail. The performance was calculated in terms of the amount of thermal energy transmitted through the fabrics; additionally, the time required to generate a second-degree burn on wearers’ bodies was predicted from the calculated transmitted thermal energy. For the characterization, the parameters that affected the protective performance were identified and discussed with regards to the theory ...

A Typology For Magnetic Field Generator Technologies, N. Robert Y. Bouda, N. Prabhu Gaunkar, W. Shen Theh, Mani Mina

Industrial Design Publications

This paper identifies different methodologies used to design suitable magnetic field generators (MFG) with adjustable characteristics. Variations in parameters, such as pulse frequency and amplitude elicit distinct responses. Assessing the differences between design parameters and experimental observations of magnetic field generators is essential for various applications. The use of magnetic field generator-based techniques is first studied in applications related to optical transmission, transcranial magnetic stimulation devices and magnetic resonance. Decades of research and technological advancement are associated with these methods. The associated nomenclature for describing and characterizing these methods are introduced and discussed. Finally, the paper presents possible future framework ...

Are You Being Rhetorical? An Open Corpus Of Machine Annotated Rhetorical Moves, Simon Knight, Sophie Abel, Antonette Shibani, Yoong Kuan Goh, Rianne Conijn, Andrew Gibson, Sowmya Vajjala, Elena Cotos, Ágnes Sándor, Simon Buckingham Shum

English Publications

Writing analytics has emerged as a sub-field of learning analytics, with applications including the provision of formative feedback to students in developing their writing capacities. Rhetorical markers in writing have become a key feature in this feedback, with a number of tools being developed across research and teaching contexts. However, there is no shared corpus of texts annotated by these tools, nor is it clear how the tool annotations compare. Thus, resources are scarce for comparing tools for both tool development and pedagogic purposes. In this paper, we conduct such a comparison and introduce a sample corpus of texts representative ...

Citation Context Analysis As A Method For Conducting Rigorous And Impactful Literature Reviews, Marc H. Anderson, Russell K. Lemken Dec 2020

Citation Context Analysis As A Method For Conducting Rigorous And Impactful Literature Reviews, Marc H. Anderson, Russell K. Lemken

Management Publications

Citation context analysis is a detailed and rigorous form of literature review that goes beyond traditional narrative and systematic reviews to better understand the impact of seminal works and influential authors. We discuss the types of questions citation context analyses can answer and provide a set of guidelines for how to effectively conduct them. Citation context analysis holds promise for enabling a more systematic assessment of how theories are used, empirically tested, and critiqued by subsequent citing authors. This has implications for both theory development and testing, and for the improvement of citation practices within the field of organizational studies ...


Standard Language Hegemony In French Language Teaching In The United States, Carol A. Chapelle Nov 2020

Standard Language Hegemony In French Language Teaching In The United States, Carol A. Chapelle

English Publications

In the United States, the French of l’académie française and the culture of France (referred to as Standard French in this paper) has been valued by language educators to the near exclusion of North American French and culture. I construct a historiographical sketch by analyzing 1) primary sources written by French Canadians and their descendants in the United States, 2) secondary sources consisting of the historical accounts of French Canadian immigrants, linguistic descriptions of North American French, and historiography of language ideology in the United States, 3) artefacts produced by and for French language teachers in the United States ...


Focus On Friendship Or Fights For Civil Rights? Teaching The Difficult History Of Japanese American Incarceration Through The Bracelet, Noreen Naseem Rodriguez Nov 2020

Focus On Friendship Or Fights For Civil Rights? Teaching The Difficult History Of Japanese American Incarceration Through The Bracelet, Noreen Naseem Rodriguez

Education Publications

In regard to the imprisonment of 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, euphemisms abound. The most popular of these is the term “internment” in reference to the events initiated by the War Relocation Authority as a result of Executive Order 9066. However, as Daniels (2005) and other Asian Americanists have noted, internment is a legal process designed for prisoners of war and civilian enemy nationals. As two-thirds of those who were imprisoned as a result of EO 9066 were U.S. citizens, these individuals by definition do not fall under the legal designation of ...


Magic And Disbelief In Carolingian Lyon, Michael D. Bailey Nov 2020

Magic And Disbelief In Carolingian Lyon, Michael D. Bailey

History Publications

Doubt, disbelief, and skepticism have become important topics in the study of medieval Europe. Following a seminal article by the historian Susan Reynolds, medievalists from many disciplines have examined a range of tendencies often grouped together under the unlovely but encompassing term “unbelief.”2 They are engaged in an important project. In the overall historiography of Europe and the West, skeptical inquiry founded on the rejection of any kind of unquestioning belief has long stood as a hallmark of modernity, set against an enduring stereotype of the Middle Ages as credulous, superstitious, and altogether irrational.3


Revisiting The Intelligibility And Nativeness Principles, John Levis Oct 2020

Revisiting The Intelligibility And Nativeness Principles, John Levis

English Publications

Levis (2005) named two conflicting approaches to pronunciation teaching, the Nativeness Principle and the Intelligibility Principle. This paper revisits those two principles to argue for the superiority of the Intelligibility Principle in regard to where pronunciation fits within the wider field of language teaching, in how it effectively addresses teaching goals, in how it best addresses all contexts of L2 pronunciation learning, and in how it recognizes the reality of social consequences of pronunciation differences. In contrast, the Nativeness Principle, despite its long pedigree and many defenders, falls short by advocating native pronunciation for L2 learners, which is both unlikely ...

Lack Of Consensus On An Aging Biology Paradigm? A Global Survey Reveals An Agreement To Disagree, And The Need For An Interdisciplinary Framework, Alan A. Cohen, Anne M. Bronikowski, Luigi Ferrucci, Et Al.

Ecology, Evolution and Organismal Biology Publications

At a recent symposium on aging biology, a debate was held as to whether or not we know what biological aging is. Most of the participants were struck not only by the lack of consensus on this core question, but also on many basic tenets of the field. Accordingly, we undertook a systematic survey of our 71 participants on key questions that were raised during the debate and symposium, eliciting 37 responses. The results confirmed the impression from the symposium: there is marked disagreement on the most fundamental questions in the field, and little consensus on anything other than the ...

Type-2 diabetes has increased 160% for African American males in the United States. This two-part study’s purpose was to apply social marketing theory to understand the Type-2 diabetes education needs of men in Iowa. Study One was a preference assessment of Type-2 diabetes education strategies. Four African American men participated in a series of four focus groups and indicated that they were interested in diabetes prevention programming with their families but not in having it labeled as diabetes education. Participating men would rather increase their physical activity as opposed to tracking their food intake. As a follow-up to this ...

An Analysis Of The Academic Environment In Business And Professional Communication, Paula Lentz Paula Lentz, Tina Coffelt, Peter Cardon, Linda Cresap, Ashley Nelson, Dirk Remley

English Publications

While previous research in business communication has surveyed business and professional communication instructors regarding their courses, it has not yet asked instructors about additional factors that affect their ability to teach and their students’ ability to learn. These factors include job satisfaction, institutional and collegial support, academic rank, physical teaching environment, teaching and learning resources, and student issues. This study examines the results of a survey of business and professional communication instructors regarding these factors, discusses implications for the disciplines of business and professional communication, and suggests additional avenues for advocacy and research.


Who Shot Le Corbusier? The Architect Of The Century And His Photographers, Daniel J. Naegele Aug 2020

Who Shot Le Corbusier? The Architect Of The Century And His Photographers, Daniel J. Naegele

Architecture Books

Who were Le Corbusier’s photographers? The question is seldom asked yet is germane to under­standing the architect’s work. Le Corbusier used photography to promote modern architecture in ways no others did. He directed the photography of his buildings, selected the images that he liked, cropped them, abstracted them, and placed them on the pages of his many books. He mediated the medium of photography mani­pulating visual facts in an era when “the camera never lied”. Yet always he began with images that others provided him. Photographers and advancing photo-technology were essential and when they changed, his ...


Exemplary And Unacceptable Workplace Communication Skills, Tina Coffelt, Frances L. M. Smith Aug 2020

Exemplary And Unacceptable Workplace Communication Skills, Tina Coffelt, Frances L. M. Smith

English Publications

Thematic analysis of interviews with 22 managers highlight their perspectives on exemplary and unacceptable workplace communication skills. Exemplary skills were perceived to be relatability, documentation, and audience awareness/adaptation, while unacceptable skills were verbal aggression, deception, and defensive communication behaviors. The findings contribute to closing-the-gap research by identifying highly notable skills—both positive and negative—on typical lists of business and professional communication skills. This study also enriches anticipatory socialization scholarship by its application to vocational preparation. Business and professional communication instructors can use the findings here when deciding what topics to emphasize in a course.


The Marseilles Unité & Le Corbusier’S Edicts Governing Photography, Daniel J. Naegele Aug 2020

The Marseilles Unité & Le Corbusier’S Edicts Governing Photography, Daniel J. Naegele

Architecture Publications

The photographic representation of the Marseilles apartment block is indicative of these postwar changes. A key component of the urban vision put forth in Le Corbusier’s 1935 La Ville radieuse, the Unité d’Habitation, was the fruit of thirty years of speculation regarding collective living. It was offered as solution to the worldwide housing shortage that had been brought on by the destruction of the war and the postwar population boom. Like much of Le Corbusier’s earlier work, it was proposed as a ‘standard type’ and was intended to be reproduced throughout the world. It would be one ...

Second Language Comprehensibility As A Dynamic Construct, Pavel Trofimovich, Charles L. Nagle, Mary G. O'Brien, Sara Kennedy, Kym Taylor Reid, Lauren Strachan

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This study examined longitudinal changes in second language (L2) interlocutors’ mutual comprehensibility ratings (perceived ease of understanding speech), targeting comprehensibility as a dynamic, time-varying, inter action-centered construct. In a repeated-measures, within-participants design, 20 pairs of L2 English university students from different language backgrounds engaged in three collaborative and interactive tasks over 17 minutes, rating their partner’s comprehensibility at 2–3 minute intervals using 100-millimeter scales (seven ratings per interlocutor). Mutual comprehensibility ratings followed a U-shaped function over time, with comprehensibility (initially perceived to be high) being affected by task complexity but then reaching high levels by the end of ...


Expanding The Scope Of L2 Intelligibility Research, Charles Nagle, Amanda Huensch Jul 2020

Expanding The Scope Of L2 Intelligibility Research, Charles Nagle, Amanda Huensch

World Languages and Cultures Publications

This study investigated relationships among intelligibility, comprehensibility, and accentedness in the speech of L2 learners of Spanish who completed a prompted response speaking task. Thirty native Spanish listeners from Spain were recruited through Amazon Mechanical Turk to transcribe and rate extracted utterances, which were also coded for grammatical and phonemic errors, and speaking rate. Descriptively, although most utterances were intelligible, their comprehensibility and accentedness varied substantially. Mixed-effects modeling showed that comprehensibility was significantly associated with intelligibility whereas accentedness was not. Additionally, phonemic and grammatical errors were significant predictors of intelligibility and comprehensibility, but only phonemic errors were significantly related to ...

The purpose of this study was to design, develop, and evaluate a sports bra that offers responsive behavior, in terms of breast support and comfort, both during rest and running conditions. A biomimetic design framework guided the conceptual phase, and moisture responsive plant biomechanics offered a feasible functional model. Fourteen sports bras were developed and wear- tested using college athletes. The moisture responsive panels inside the bra absorbed the sweat generated during running, making the ...


Études Françaises, Hervé, Martin Et Alexis Lussier (Dir.). Le Regard Et La Proie, Michèle A. Schaal Jul 2020

Études Françaises, Hervé, Martin Et Alexis Lussier (Dir.). Le Regard Et La Proie, Michèle A. Schaal

World Languages and Cultures Publications

Dans ce numéro d’Études françaises, les éditeurs nous offrent un riche panorama autour du thème « le regard et de la proie ». Un aspect particulier se dégage de cette considération : la chasse tant réelle qu’allégorique. Pourtant, à la manière de Magritte, les éditeurs soulignent, dans leur introduction, que ceci n’est guère un dossier spécial sur la chasse. Il s’agit plutôt de souligner comment l’imaginaire cynégétique participe du regard car qui dit regarder dit forcément traquer. Cette approche thématique soulève alors les questions du désir, de son objet ou sujet, de la quête qu’il engendre et ...
