Recovery of Alkali Values from Trona Purge Streams Using Carbonation Techniques

Eloise Fadial, Kolbi Pickinpaugh & Ahmed Alghubari
Trona is a sodium carbonate compound that forms naturally and is processed into soda ash. Solution mining is practiced by Genesis Alkali to recover trona that was not previously extracted during the dry mining process. As such it is imperative that an economic process exist that allows for abundant recovery from the trona slurry. This project aims to derive an additional recovery process that is both efficient and economical by carbonating the purge stream of...

Autonomous Swarms for Extreme Conditions (ASEC)

Bailey Richard Norman, Nic Robinson, Trey Jennings & Garrett Burrows
Swarms consist of numerous entities that work together to achieve an objective. There are twobroad schools of swarms, centralized and decentralized, which refers to the method of organizationemployed by the swarm. With the abundance and readiness of modern processing equipment, mostmodern swarms use a centralized model where control and instructions converge at one point, usually ata controller station. While practical, the centralized model opens the door for problems that can beavoided with some compromise by...

Accessing Funding for Wildlife Migration Projects

Kimber Logan, Travis Brammer, Hannah Mink & Bryce Nichols
The conservation of big game migration corridors is critical to the longevity of the species that utilize those corridors. In Wyoming, wildlife species, and big game species specifically, are essential to the state’s economy and sense of identity. To protect corridors, states and local governments rely heavily on funding from their own budgets. A comprehensive strategy will require more support from federal funding sources, to reduce the burden on state and local coffers. This project...

Regulating self-defensiveness: If–then plans prevent claiming and creating performance handicaps

Lukas Thuermer, Sean M. McCrea & Peter Gollwitzer
Claiming or creating obstacles before performing important tasks (i.e., self-handicapping) is a costly strategy to protect the self from implications of poor outcomes. We predicted that forming an if-then plan (implementation intention) helps individuals overcome their performance-related worries and thus prevents self-handicapping behavior. In two experiments, all participants formed the goal to perform well on an upcoming task and learned the strategies to ignore worries and tell themselves “I can do it”, either in an...

Creating The Match: A Journey into Multi-Genre Filmmaking

Riley Christopher Box
Ever since I was young, I have been interested in film. For this Capstone Project I wanted to analyze film techniques and genres whilst also doing something creative. I am very intrigued with genres that seemingly do not work together or have not had much of a history together. I chose the genres: Film Noir, Sports Drama, and Dry Comedy. Through my research I have been able to find certain films that mix in two...

Reaction Kinetics of Municipal Wastewater Treatment with Temperature Effects

Katelin N Scheuerman
Anaerobic microorganisms have ideal growth kinetics at temperatures greater than 25 degrees Celsius; however, wastewater treated at the Laramie Wastewater Treatment Plant experiences temperatures ranging from 10 to 25 degrees Celsius. Due to temperature fluctuations in the wastewater, evaluation of growth kinetics of the microorganisms in the system is required. At low temperatures, the microorganisms degrade constituents slowly, so organism retention times in the reactor will have to be adjusted to produce the desired treatment...

Medieval Courtesy Books and Contemporary Conservative Christian Self-Help Books: A Textual Analysis and Psychological Implications

Amy L Gabriel
Much of the rhetoric concerning women’s sexuality, agency, and roles in heterosexual relationships contained in contemporary Christian self-help books mirrior the rhetoric of these topics found in their Medieval counterparts–courtesy books. Though the language has developed over the past six hundred and fifty years, the main lessons that Christian women are supposed to absorb from each of these texts remain the same. This study compares the 1371 text, “The Book of the Knight of the...

How Cohorts Diminish COVID-19 Transmission and Mental Health Concerns: Lessons Learned from the Pandemic

CeeJay Berg
This paper explores the benefits of cohorts on transmission of COVID-19 and student mental health by conducting a literature review and making a policy recommendation. Transmission of COVID-19 drew university administrators to implement changes to course delivery modes which often included sending students home and converting classes to online modality. While this addressed the high transmission, administrators were not yet aware of the significant negative mental health implications of isolation. An alternative transmission reduction method...
