black american engineer magazine, published by Career Communications Group, has released this year’s list of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Engineering Supporters. Among the many companies on the listing, A select few topped each category for helping to strengthen employment education pathways for minority students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).


“The past two years have been pivotal for underserved communities staying connected through STEM,” said Tyrone Taborn, CEO of Career Communications Group, Inc. “These supporters have gone above and beyond to help solidify the school-to-career pipeline within HBCUs and companies seeking top talent.”

Taborn said the companies included in the survey report range from Fortune 500 companies to startups. The survey methodology has traditionally been to ask HBCU engineering deans which employers provide the most support. Deans vote for their supporters, and members of the non-profit organization Advancing Minorities’ Interest in Engineering (AMIE) can also vote.

Career Communications Group continued to promote a number of workshops, career days and webinars to provide access to resources. the STEM CITY Village HBCU is one of the spaces created to bring HBCUs and business leaders together.

The Nigerian Academy of Engineering has highlighted the need to deploy a multidisciplinary approach to mitigate the impact of climate change on the environment.

NAEng also recommended reducing or eliminating emissions, implementing a global agreement on climate change, and raising public awareness of the effects of climate change.

An energy consultant, Dr. Funmi Coker, led the call at a forum on “Climate Change, COP26 and the Nigerian Engineer” at a webinar hosted by NAEng in Lagos.

He said engineers need to identify how, where and when to best deploy available technology solutions, balancing technological, economic and social factors, as well as developing and implementing engineering design standards and practices to climate changes.

He stressed the need to also develop and implement low greenhouse gas emission power supply, transport systems and industrial facilities, low GHG emission agriculture, human and agricultural waste management. and energy efficiency systems.

Coker said climate goals and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals could not be achieved without engineers, calling for multidisciplinary approaches to respond to the climate crisis.

He recommended that policymakers, professionals and stakeholders come together to build on fundamental scientific evidence and quickly implement solutions that are affordable, effective, equitable, respectful and inclusive for all.

“Engineers should build capacity and ensure technology transfer, work with government and international organizations on developing green engineering skills, work with academic institutions on climate change in curricula, and work with universities and research institutes on climate change research and development.”

The President, Engineering and Environment Management Services ltd, Professor Samuel Adefila explained that the challenges of climate change can only be managed through the transdisciplinary application of Policy, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal and Environmental (PESTLE) as a framework to ensure the sustainability of human civilization on earth.

He said the climate crisis was a complex problem but engineering had the solutions, warning that a rise in temperature above 1.5 degrees would have serious repercussions for humans.

Chairman of NAEng’s Environment and Climate Change Committee, Professor Salihu Mustafa, said actions to tackle the root causes of climate include launching a nature-based solution, reducing methane leaks from manufacturing industries, replacement of GHG emitting fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas with renewable.

Others, he said, were retrofitting old buildings and new structures to make them energy efficient, and using more electric and solar vehicles.

“Measures and policy documents have been produced by the federal government to address the impacts of climate change and these include: the Climate Change Act of 2021; National Climate Change Policy for Nigeria 2021-2030; Nationally Determined Contribution, and the National Agency for the Great Green Wall (NAGGW) Act 2015, the National Strategy for REDD+ and the recent meeting of the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) of COP15 in Côte d’Ivoire,” he said.

FORT SMITH, Ark. – City officials, planners and U of A researchers gathered Thursday in North Fort Smith for the official launch of Ride 4 Smilies, a low-cost bike-sharing service being rolled out to areas where the majority of residents report not having a vehicle or access to reliable public transportation.

“We are thrilled to offer our residents the opportunity to experience the many benefits of cycling,” said Fort Smith Mayor George McGill. “Whether it’s picking up a few items at the convenience store or just taking a spin and enjoying the outdoors, bike sharing is a healthy way to travel.”

The partners established eight stations with shared bikes accessible using an app called Movatic. After downloading the app and creating an account, residents can scan a QR code on the bike, ride it where they need to go, then come back and lock it at the station.

Initially, one-hour rides will be free to encourage participation. Over time, researchers will test pricing and incentive strategies to develop a sustainable revenue model that balances profitability and affordability.

Supply chain issues have delayed the delivery of e-bikes, so the program will start using traditional bikes until e-bikes arrive.

Reese Brewer, director of the Frontier Metropolitan Planning Organization, said the group is eager to hear how the Smilies bike-sharing pilot program can provide the diverse communities north of Fort Smith with reliable, equitable and healthy transportation choices.

“The program should reflect the neighborhoods it will serve,” she said. “Rather than placing brand new, sparkling Smilies bikes in pre-determined locations, we intentionally sought out public feedback to indicate where the Smilies bike share would best meet the needs of the community. partner with the community and find the best bike sharing model and structure that changes lives.”

The project is funded by a $1 million National Science Foundation grant to the U of A College of Engineering. The study is titled Shared micromobility for affordable and accessible housing.

In addition to Brewer, the co-principal investigators are Suman Mitra, assistant professor of civil engineering at the U of A; Sarah Hernandez, associate professor of civil engineering at the U of A; Rogelio Garcia Contreras, director of the social innovation program at the U of A Walton College of Business; and Elizabeth McClain, wellness manager at Arkansas Colleges of Health Education.

Mitra said he was thrilled to see the Ride 4 Smilies program launch after months of planning, research and data collection. He thanked the project team for their hard work over the past six months.

“I hope this bike share program helps those who need it most. We have tried to develop an inclusive and sustainable program tailored to the needs of Fort Smith residents,” he said. “As a researcher, I appreciate the opportunity to work with this great community. In the coming months, we will be developing models and collecting user data to assess the impact of the program on the livelihoods of the community. local community so that we can improve the system based on their needs and preferences.”

Other partners in the project include bike-sharing provider Tandem Mobility, the City of Fort Smith and bike store Champion Cycling. More information about the program can be found on the project webpage or Tandem Mobility Mount 4 smileys page.

Dallas to pay an additional $16 million to an engineering firm to shore up the new convention center plan https://itramways.net/dallas-to-pay-an-additional-16-million-to-an-engineering-firm-to-shore-up-the-new-convention-center-plan/ Wed, 11 May 2022 20:32:48 +0000 https://itramways.net/dallas-to-pay-an-additional-16-million-to-an-engineering-firm-to-shore-up-the-new-convention-center-plan/ Dallas officials have agreed to pay an engineering and design firm $16 million to flesh out plans for a new convention center and everything around it.

Dallas officials have agreed to pay an engineering and design firm $16 million to flesh out plans for a new convention center and everything around it.

Although the Dallas City Council in February approved the demolition of the downtown Kay Bailey Hutchison Center and the construction of a new facility that could cost up to $2 billion, the plan is currently only a concept. Rosa Fleming, the city’s director of convention and event services, told council members Wednesday.

She said WSP Inc. will need nearly $15 million to assess the realism of the new convention center project, including working with the Texas Department of Transportation and the Union Pacific Railroad to authorize construction. part of the planned 2.5 million square foot structure over a nearby rail yard and Interstate 30.

Nearly $1.2 million more would be added to the contract WSP has had with the city since January 2021 for transportation and land use planning as well as helping coordinate public meetings related to the redevelopment of the area around of the installation.

“Now it’s really about digging into the master plan, not design, not build, just the master plan,” Fleming said.

The determination of the feasibility of the project could be completed by December and a revised price tag for the construction of the new convention center could accompany it.

The design and construction phase would come next.

The city plans to cover the costs of the new convention center and surrounding projects with hotel tax revenue. Construction of the new center is expected to begin in 2024 and be completed in 2028.

City Council’s approval of more money for WSP means Dallas has committed about $21 million to the company since last year to spearhead the convention center reorganization. The group was hired to plan a 10-year redevelopment for the South Griffin Street Convention Center and surrounding area, from Union Station Eddie Bernice Johnson to the Dallas Farmers Market.

The convention center is a key part of the plan. The planned footprint of the new convention center would essentially rotate 90 degrees to the current building, so that the entrance would run parallel to the west side of Lamar Street/Botham Jean Boulevard. Current plans call for the convention center arena and the Black Academy of Arts and Letters building not to be demolished, but questions remain about how current nearby landmarks like the Pioneer Cemetery and the Square of pioneers will integrate.

It was WSP that pushed the idea of ​​building a new convention center rather than other options the company presented to repair or add to the facility. Rebuilding was the most expensive option, but WSP said it would spur more downtown development, increase tourism-related revenue and generate billions in spending and new property taxes in the area.

According to WSP and city staff, the demolition of the current convention center could open up 29 to 40 acres to the area. They envision a new mixed-use entertainment district linking downtown with the Cedars neighborhood.

The convention center began as the 350,000 square foot Dallas Memorial Auditorium in the 1950s and has undergone five expansions and renovations since. The complete space redevelopment plan has been underway since 2015.

The convention center has maintenance needs of $500 million to $700 million, city officials say, largely due to neglect. Needs include a new roof, escalators and the reconstruction of other parts of the building to allow for modern upgrades.

Mods are one of the most used external features associated with Minecraft. Although not officially in the game, mods are used to alter the game and change it in ways that were previously unimaginable.

Mods help players modify, remove or add things to Minecraft. They can add new monsters, change the behavior of entities, and even redesign how all mechanics work in the game. One mod that has grown in popularity is Immersive Engineering.

Immersive Engineering is a tech-based mod that aims to bring machines and gear inspired by realism. It seeks to move away from blocky and cartoon-like designs.

For example, instead of red tubes for pipes or transportation devices, the mod introduces real pipelines and overhead power lines to the game, along with tons of new machinery.


Minecraft mods: Crafting Blast Furnaces in Immersive Engineering mod

youtube cover

A blast furnace is a machine needed to make steel in the Immersive Engineering mod. Steel is of utmost importance in the mod, as it is used to craft almost all the machinery added to it, such as wire coils, lightning rod bases, radiator blocks, steel scaffolding and, more importantly, engineering blocks.

To build the Blast Furnace, users will need to collect a few items. The first is the blast brick block, which is what a blast furnace is made of in IE. The Explosive Bricks recipe requires four regular bricks, four nether bricks, and a single blaze powder.

This requires players to travel the Nether and try to find the Nether-based items. Twenty-seven blow bricks are needed for a blast furnace.

youtube cover

However, not everyone needs to travel to the Nether to get Nether Bricks and Firepowder. Players who use the Revolution 2 Pack and follow the included quest book can build the Blast Furnace without going downstairs.

This is made possible because Nether Bricks and Blaze Powder are available as quest rewards.

To build a “raw” blast furnace or blast furnace in the Immersive Engineering mod, Minecraft users must place their 27 explosive bricks into the design of a solid 3×3 cube. After that, they have to use an item called “Engineer’s Hammer” on it.

Players can craft the Engineer’s Hammer using two sticks, two iron ingots, and a piece of string.

Upon opening the oven, Minecraft users will notice that it has four slots. The bottom left slot is for the fuel source, the top left slot is for the iron ingots, the resulting steel ingots go into the top right space, and the bottom right slot is for the slag produced in the process.

From an air transport system on Mars to a new way to rehabilitate wrist paralysis, College of Engineering graduates presented their flagship projects.

The maneuver was a little tricky at first, but Samuel Feuer stuck to it.

With a video game-like controller strapped to his right hand, he manipulated the animated image of a green worm that appeared on a computer screen in front of him, moving his wrist to the left until the creature swiped. come close enough to an apple to pick it up. a big bite.

But after each nibble, the apple would move to a different spot on the screen, requiring Feuer to perform another hand motion to chase the fruit away.

As some might say, it was all in the wrist.

For patients with spinal cord injuries, however, wrist movements, so essential to performing a variety of tasks, can be challenging. And the rehabilitation process for such a condition, if patients can afford it, can be uninviting and require long trips to a rehabilitation center.

That’s why a team of four University of Miami biomedical engineering students, focused on the goal of improving wrist function in paralyzed patients, created an interactive, easy-to-use rehabilitation device.

ParaMove uses a wearable accelerometer attached to the hand to track wrist movements at different axis points, feeding the data to encoding software that converts the movements into video game-like graphics of a snake and an apple.

It was one of 57 projects featured at the College of Engineering’s Senior Design Expo, a showcase of capstone projects developed by senior graduates across all engineering disciplines.

Manhattan-based global investment firm Schonfeld Strategic Advisors, which recently chose Miami as its second headquarters, sponsored the exhibit.

A development plan to combat the effects of climate change in a Miami community, an analysis tool to determine whether the presence of specialized surgical teams would increase the efficiency of a hospital’s operating room procedures, and a transportation system for a future colony on Mars were among other projects showcased at the event, which was held May 3 at the Shalala Student Center.

During the exhibit, several students like Feuer and other attendees stopped at the ParaMove table, strapping down the controller and moving their wrists to manipulate the worm.

“We could have done something in a lab,” said Golnoosh Goltapeh, one of the ParaMove team members. “But we wanted to get to the heart of biomedical engineering. So we created a device and pointed it at a problem that doesn’t really get attention and where there’s little innovation.

Goltapeh and his three team members — Grace Ghiazza, Nicole Navratil, and Tyler Schellenberg — interviewed patients at Christine E. Lynn Rehab Center for the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, getting their thoughts on what would make wrist exercises more engaging. “They said they wanted something fun, something they could take home and do with family and friends or other patients,” Schellenberg said.

The four students tested their device on friends and classmates. But time constraints, COVID-19 protocols and clinical trial restrictions prevented them from trying it on patients.

“Research and development can take up to 15 years in some cases,” Goltapeh said. “We operated on a shoestring budget and came up with something that could potentially be a million dollar idea.”

Using various engineering methods to mitigate the effects of sea level rise in a long-standing Miami community is the focus of the capstone project by College of Engineering seniors Paul Spada, Ali Alqanaee, Yousef Alsaad, Bader Alshawaf and Anthony Milton.

The four designed a three-story mixed-use community center for the El Portal neighborhood of Little River, incorporating into their plan a ground elevation that matches FEMA’s 100-year floodplain projection maps. They surrounded their structure and a nearby park with vegetated areas and interlocking concrete pavers that capture and store rainfall. And they designed the building with a green roof and structural features that would allow it to withstand Category 4 hurricane-force winds.

“We applied the concepts we learned throughout our years at the College of Engineering,” Milton said. “Blending engineering disciplines allowed us to see problems from different perspectives and find new, innovative ways to solve them.”

If we ever reached and established a base on Mars, a transportation system developed by mechanical and aerospace engineering students Miranda Anhalzer, Yusif Gurbanli, Alexis Abundio and Johan Zambrano would allow astronauts to travel around the Red Planet. Their main design concept, A Transportation and Energy Ecosystem Based on the Martian Atmosphere, won the Best Project award at the expo. It is an electric-powered vertical take-off and landing aircraft that would be powered by converting energy from dust storms, which are quite common on Mars.

“There would be no road network on Mars if we ever got there. Thus, it would be better to travel by plane,” said the students’ faculty mentor, GeCheng Zha, professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering and director of the Aerodynamics and Computational Fluid Dynamics Laboratory at the College of Engineering.

“But flying on Mars is extremely difficult because the air is thin. The vehicles must have ultra-high coefficients of lift with high efficiency. project seems like the most promising way to get the job done,” Zha said.

This year marked the first time that Schonfeld sponsored the exhibit. “We are thrilled with our continued, long-term relationship with the University of Miami, and taking a leadership role in sponsoring the Senior Design Expo is a key step in solidifying this relationship,” said Jennifer Kaplan. , Head of Campus Recruitment and Diversity at Schönfeld. “We have already found strong talent at the University and are looking forward to welcoming several interns this summer.

Modular Plant Solutions (MPS), a global engineering firm specializing in process modularization and project implementation, announced its contract to support Arbor Renewable Gas in the construction of the first modular green gasoline plant in its gender.

The Spindletop mill, located in Beaumont, Texas, will convert woody biomass in the form of pre-commercial thinnings and forestry residues into market-ready, carbon-negative green gasoline, helping to meet a growing demand for low-carbon gasoline. carbon emission. intensity fuels.

Modular Plant Solutions sells its first Methanol-To-GoⓇ methanol plant to Arbor Renewable Gas for use in the world’s first industrial-scale green gasoline plant.

MPS will not only supply its modular MeOH-To-Go® (Methanol-To-Go®) plant for the project, but it will also manage the project engineering and technology partners for the entire plant, procurement and construction to operation. MPS’s modularization process and modular design based on the patent-pending ISO framework for the plant will streamline the transportation of plant components, making assembly easier and minimizing construction issues.

“Being part of the production of this innovative modular green gasoline plant is a pivotal moment for the future of renewable fuels in the United States and for our company, especially as global events shine a spotlight on the supply of fuel,” said Russell Hillenburg, President and CEO. co-founder of MPS. “The way we designed our modular Methanol-To-Go® plant allows customers to modify the feedstock for methanol production based on the resources they have.”

Components of the Arbor Renewable Gas plant include front-end gasification technology using woody biomass as feedstock, followed by MPS’ MeOH-To-Go® plant to convert syngas to methanol using methanol synthesis technology from Haldor Topsoe. The final stage of production uses Haldor Topsoe’s TIGAS™ gasoline synthesis technology, resulting in drop-in renewable biofuel production that meets stringent California fuel quality specifications, as well as the Low Carbon Fuel Standard, adopted by states such as California, Oregon, European Union and British Columbia follow similar standards.

“We are excited to work with the MPS team to realize our vision to produce cost-effective, safe and reliable woody biomass renewable gasoline,” said Timothy Vail, President and CEO of Arbor Renewable Gas. “Going forward, MPS’s plants, expertise, and modularization design approach will allow Arbor to expand our operations and bring more renewable gasoline plants online in a cost-effective manner.” and calendar.

Since MeOH-To-Go® was designed to allow for a variety of raw material and front-end technology process options, as well as complementary back-end technology processes, customers can modify inputs and outputs to achieve various goals according to their needs. . Arbor Renewable Gas’ Spindletop Project plant will use woody biomass as feedstock, converted by gasification into syngas. Other feedstock options for MeOH-To-Go® plants include various compositions of syngas or natural gas that are converted to AA-grade methanol, a building block in the production of several chemical derivatives.

MPS has two other plant options in the design phase: DME-To-Go®, an add-on option for MeOH-To-Go® plants to produce dimethylether (DME), a clean-burning alternative diesel fuel, as well as Gasoline-To-Go™, a small scale modular plant to produce 88 octane gasoline.
