Virtual laboratory experiments can be a useful self-learning and teaching tool for Strength of Materials. Three modules (Material Module, Bending Module, and Torsion Module) were developed and integrated with the engineering core course (ENGR 2153) offered during the Spring semester each year by the College of Engineering at the University of Oklahoma. An(More)
He joined UC on 8/15/00 and before that worked 22 years at University of Oklahoma. He teaches structural mechanics, with research in steel structures, seismic analysis and design, and engineering education. He has won five major university teaching awards, two Professorships, two national ASEE teaching awards, and is internationally recognized in his(More)
Over the past 10 years there has been a growing need to introduce closed-loop control technology for vibration suppression of buildings subject to wind or earthquake disturbances. This paper deals with the investigation of the effectiveness of a fuzzy logic based time variable damping tuned mass damper (TMD) on a building structure undergoing free and(More)
The Cincinnati Engineering Enhanced Math and Science (CEEMS) Program, funded by the National Science Foundation, DUE #1102990, empowers secondary math and science teachers to integrate the engineering design process and challenge-based learning into the courses they teach. Some of the curricular materials developed by CEEMS participating teachers also(More)
She earned her Doctorate of Philosophy in Biomedical En-gineering/Engineering Education also from the University of Cincinnati. Her dissertation " Changing the Learning Environment in the College of Engineering and Applied Science: The impact of Educational Training on Future Faculty and Student-Centered Pedagogy on Undergraduate Students " was the first of(More)
Our work is based on an effort to teach the concepts of exponential growth and decay functions using the Challenge Based Learning approach (CBL). The cohort consisted of high-school and middle-school science and math teachers. A unique aspect of this work was that in parallel to teaching the mathematical concepts, the instructors were also explaining how to(More)
Education. He is active in curriculum reform, and has led an NSF supported effort to integrate Mathematica laboratory sessions into the freshman calculus sequence at Wright State University. teaches structural engineering, with research in experimental and finite element analysis of structures. He has received two Professorships, and won four University and(More)
Most blobs are emulsions. From a chemistry perspective, emulsions turn two liquid phases into what appears to be one continuous phase through the use of surfactants. This lesson, created by a chemical engineering graduate student, allows the secondary students to observe this phenomenon in the transformation of vinegar, oil, and egg yolks into mayonnaise.(More)
