  • Survey experiments and changes in question wording in repeated cross-sectional surveys 

    Holbrook, Allyson L.; Sterrett, David; Crosby, Andrew W.; Stavrakantonaki, Marina; Wang, Xiaoheng; Zhao, Tianshu; Johnson, Timothy P. (Wiley, 2019)
    This chapter first describes what repeated cross-sectional surveys are and their uses. It then briefly reviews how changes in both questionnaire design best practices and language norms impact question wording over time. ...
  • An initial study on the line orientation patterns of a 3D printed specimen and its resistance to stress placed onto a specimen 

    Lopez-Correa, Ricardo; Smith, Nicholas (Wichita State University, 2021)
    The purpose of this project is to determine the best line orientation pattern and material for a printed three-dimensional specimen to reduce the stress being applied. Investigations have been carried out by graduate ...
  • Find a better way to neutralize acid mine drainage 

    Tazawa, Kazune; Swindle, Andrew L. (Wichita State University, 2021)
    Recently, the effects of acid mine drainage (AMD) on our life and the stream aquatic environments have become severe. AMD is recognized in the various areas in the world, such as Africa, North America, Europe and Oceania. ...
  • Reducing noise to improve robotic material recognition 

    Peterson, Mary; Li, Hui; He, Hongsheng (Wichita State University, 2021)
    Denoising Autoencoders (DAEs) are a machine learning tool used to reconstruct noisy data in a way that reduces noise, allowing artificial intelligence systems to better recognize patterns in data or images. An autoencoder ...
  • The implementation of an optimize 3D printing path 

    Lammers, Michael; Smith, Nicholas (Wichita State University, 2021)
    3D printing is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) process that generates several different two-dimensional paths. These paths are than laid on top of each other one at a time to create a three-dimensional object. This process ...
