The study involves a combination of laboratory and field research to develop materials, construction, and structural specifications and to construct low-cracking, high-performance concrete (LC-HPC) bridge decks. To date, 20 bridge decks have been built, 14 in Kansas and six in partner states, using a full complement of best practices. All but one of the(More)
Alcohol consumption is associated with higher breast cancer risk. While studies suggest a modest association between alcohol intake and mammographic density, few studies have examined the association in racial/ethnic minority populations. We assessed dense breast area and total breast area from digitized film mammograms in an urban cohort of African(More)
BACKGROUND Vitamin D, which influences cellular proliferation and breast tissue characteristics, has been inversely correlated with breast cancer risk. Dietary vitamin D intake has been associated with lower mammographic density (MD), a strong intermediate marker of breast cancer risk. FINDINGS We examined the relationship between MD and serum(More)

Autogenous shrinkage, however, is not a concern at the w/cm used in bridge decks, which are typically greater than 0.42. Research using porous normalweight aggregates in combination with slag cement as a partial replacement for portland cement has demonstrated that the combination can significantly reduce shrinkage compared to concretes containing porous(More)
The use of lightweight aggregates to supply a source of internal curing for Low Cracking, High Performance Concrete (LC-HPC) is evaluated. Prior research is used as a basis to estimate the amount of with lightweight aggregate replacement needed to optimize the amount of moisture available in the mix for internal curing. An aggregate optimization program (KU(More)
