Applications of partial depth precast concrete deck panels on horizontally curved bridges

Colter Eastman Roskos &
Horizontally curved bridges are commonly used for direct connectors at highway intersections as well as other applications. The majority of curved bridges utilize continuous steel curved I-girder or tub girder systems. One of the most critical construction stages from a stability perspective is placement of the wet concrete deck at which point the girders must support the full construction load of the system until the deck stiffens and acts compositely with the girders. Bridges with...

Stream and Spring Water Evolution in a Rapidly Urbanizing Watershed, Austin, TX

Lakin Beal, Jay Banner, Jeffrey Senison, MaryLynn Musgrove, Lindsey Yasbek, Nathan Bendick, Christopher Herrington & Christopher Reyes
Quantifying urban development impacts on fresh water quality and quantity is critical, especially as growing populations concentrate in urban centers and with climate change projections of increased hydrologic extremes. We investigate geochemical processes through which municipal supply and waste water, carbonate bedrock, and soils impact stream and spring water compositions within the Bull Creek watershed (Austin, Texas). This watershed exhibits a sharp geographic divide between urban and rural land. Urban and rural waters were assessed...

An Analysis of Myths Surrounding Women’s Running

Jane Buell
This thesis explores inequality for women in the sport of running. The inequality originated in myths and faulty medical beliefs. Research, cultural change, and sporting events have eroded this inequality as women have made headway in the sport, however, some disparity remains. The historical myths held that women were physically and mentally inferior to men and should, consequently, avoid the intense exercise or competition that constituted the male sphere. Women’s inequality in running was due,...

Nightlight

Sahib J. Chandnani
This is an anthology of poems written from 2016 to 2020 mapping my journey through college. These poems are either murals or manifestations of things that exceeded their stay in my head. The words are poets, artists, teachers, friends, and family possessing my hand and speaking in my voice. My poetry is how I process the world. Some people talk their thoughts out loud and others beat punching bags to satisfy a primal urge for...

Nature and source of mineralizing fluids at the Presidio mine, Shafter district, Presidio County, Texas

Fabienne Michèle Rambaud
The object of this research is to determine the nature and source of the mineralizing fluids that formed the Presidio Zn-Pb-Ag deposit, and to determine the relationship of the Presidio deposit to the rest of the Shafter district, including the Red Hills porphyry Cu-Mo deposit, exposed about 7 km to the west. The Presidio deposit is located in the Trans-Pecos mid-Tertiary volcanic field, near the Chinati Mountain caldera margin. Deformation of the Permian and Cretaceous...

Geologic history of Painthorse Quadrangle, Culberson County, Texas

The Painthorse quadrangle was an area of deposition during every geologic period except the Triassic, Jurassic and Tertiary. Prior to Permian time the area was situated on an unstable shelf which, from time to time, was covered by shallow epicontinental seas. The orogeny at the end of Pennsylvanian time marked the area's transition from a shelf-type depositional region to an intracratonic basin which received great thicknesses of Permian sediments. The area was exposed during the...

Problem Solvers or Problem Creators: The Problem Solvers' Caucus and Polarization in the United States House of Representatives

Scarlett A. Neely
In 2017, No, Labels, an organization dedicated to a return to bipartisan behavior in the United States House of Representatives spurred the creation of the Problem Solvers’ Caucus. The caucus established bylaws to encourage collaboration between parties, including forcing a bipartisan voting bloc and requiring each prospective caucus member to bring a member of the opposite party to join as well. Upon its creation, the caucus had different reputations—some thought it a refreshing group with...

Melville's Epistemology: Moby-Dick and The Problem of the Universe

John McDonald
In Moby-Dick, the sailor Ishmael expresses exhaustion with the totalizing philosophical systems of Kantian Idealism and Lockean Empiricism. His solution is to “float light” by letting both go. Throughout the text, Ishmael also references a “Problem of the Universe,” which arises in philosophical contemplation. In this paper, I connect the “Problem of the Universe” to Ishmael’s fraught relationship with philosophical systems. Leaning on K.L. Evans’ Wittgensteinian analysis of Moby-Dick, I argue that the text embodies...

Manifesting the Invisible: Thomas Merton's Vision of Contemplative Christianity in the Modern World

Pablo Christian Soenen
The American Cistercian monk Thomas Merton was a tireless contributor to the 20th century conversations of the role of the monastic contemplative life in the modern world. His concept of the contemplative life’ s openness to the world and service to modernity, and indeed his understanding of his own vocation, developed significantly throughout his life, to the point that some have found it helpful to distinguish between the “early Merton” and the “later Merton.” This...

Exploring the relationship between implicit bias, cultural competency, and racial disproportionality in school discipline

Shontell Smith
Research highlights the pervasiveness of racial disproportionality in school disciplinary practices. Moreover, researchers have theorized that racial implicit bias plays a role in this disparate treatment; yet, there is a lack of empirical evidence to support this relationship. Even still, schools and researchers have suggested cultural competency training as a way of addressing implicit bias to reduce disproportionality in discipline rates. This proposed study seeks to, first, quantify the relationship between racial implicit bias and...
