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)
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)
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)
Environmental engineering education has rapidly expanded in recent years and new teaching methods are needed. Many professionals and educators believe that a MS degree in environmental engineering should be the minimum in order to practice the profession, along with practical training. This paper describes an innovative program being offered at the(More)
