The expression of two temperature-sensitive reporter genes, hsp70 and an hsp70-LacZ fusion, in free-ranging adult Drosophila melanogaster indicates that natural thermal stress experienced by such small and mobile insects may be either infrequent or not severe. Levels of the heat-shock protein Hsp70, the major inducible Hsp of Drosophila, were similar in(More)

DOI: 10.3141/2037-04 The research, design, and manufacturing of functionally graded materials (FGMs) have been extensively applied to high-performance materials such as graded(More)
In concrete pavements, a single concrete mixture design is selected to resist mechanical loading without attempting to adversely affect the concrete pavement shrinkage, ride quality, or noise attenuation. An alternative approach is to design distinct layers within the concrete pavement surface which have specific functions thus achieving higher performance(More)
1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The objective of this study was to show that using recycled concrete as a coarse aggregate with and without the addition of synthetic fibers can produce a paving concrete with similar fracture properties as those made with virgin coarse aggregate. Six different concrete mixtures were produced. Two mixtures were made completely with(More)
