  • Fox, Garey; Sheshukov, Aleksey Y.; Cruse, Rick; Kolar, Randall; Gesch, Karl; Dutnell, Russ (2016-02-17)
    The future reliance on water supply and flood control reservoirs across the globe will continue to expand, especially under a variable climate. As the inventory of new potential dam sites is shrinking, construction of ...
  • Sharda, Ajay; Fulton, J. P.; Taylor, R. K. (2016-05-01)
    Variable-rate application continues to gain interest among precision agriculture practitioners including the use of crop sensor technology for application of nitrogen in grain crops. For liquid fertilizers, variable-orifice ...
  • Turner, Aaron P.; Montross, Michael D.; McNeill, Samuel G.; Sama, Michael P.; Casada, Mark E.; Boac, Josephine M.; Bhadra, Rumela; Maghirang, Ronaldo G.; Thompson, Sidney A. (2016-04-01)
    The bulk density of grain in a storage structure varies vertically and horizontally due to the overburden pressure created by the cumulative weight of the overlying material. As the overburden pressure increases, the stored ...
  • Frink, Elizabeth; Flippo, Daniel; Sharda, Ajay (2015-12-21)
    This study looked at developing a simple concept for an object-following robot, meant to follow a person in an agricultural setting. A KIPR Link was used as the framework, and simple mathematical relationships were derived ...
  • Liu, Zifei; Murphy, James P.; Maghirang, Ronaldo; Devlin, Daniel (2016-11-01)
    Smoke exposure is often an inevitable side effect of open vegetation fires (both planned and wild) and is an important public health concern. The objective of this paper is to summarize state-of-the-art knowledge on health ...
  • Liu, Zifei; Powers, W.; Harmon, J. D.
    The CO2 production rates from various animal species were measured as well as the ventilation rates (VR) in environmental rooms at Michigan State University over the course of 15 studies that considered dietary strategies ...
  • Turner, Aaron P.; Montross, Michael D.; Jackson, Joshua J.; McNeill, Samuel G.; Casada, Mark E.; Boac, Josephine M.; Bhadra, Rumela; Maghirang, Ronaldo G.; Thompson, Sidney A. (2016-06-01)
    Estimation of the quantity of stored grain is important for crop insurance, financial statements, and inventory control. Traditionally, the height of grain has been measured using weighted tape measures, and the volume is ...
  • Luck, J. D.; Schaardt, W. A.; Forney, S. H.; Sharda, Ajay (2016-01-01)
    The purpose of this study was to develop and evaluate an automated spray pattern measurement system which utilized digital liquid level sensors to quantify the coefficient of variation (CV) for different nozzle configurations. ...
  • Bhadra, Rumela; Casada, Mark E.; Boac, Josephine M.; Turner, Aaron P.; Thompson, Sidney A.; Montross, Michael D.; Maghirang, Ronaldo G.; McNeill, Samuel G.
    In grain bins, the compaction of stored grain is caused by the overbearing pressure of the bulk material in the bin. To predict the amount of grain in the bin, compaction values must be determined based on the average bulk ...
  • James, M.; Yuan, W.; Boyette, M. D.; Wang, Donghai H.; Kumar, A. (2016-01-01)
    The objective of this study was to characterize biochar produced from rice hulls and wood chips in a top-lit updraft gasifier. Biochar from four airflows (8, 12, 16, or 20 L min-1) and two insulation conditions (not insulated ...
  • Kisekka, Isaya; Aguilar, Jonathan P.; Rogers, Danny H.; Holman, Johnathon; O'Brien, Daniel M.; Klocke, N. (2016-01-01)
    Declining groundwater levels in the Ogallala aquifer due to withdrawals exceeding annual recharge result in diminished well capacities that eventually become incapable of meeting full crop water needs. Producers need ...
  • Zhao, Z.; Yang, Y.; Zeng, Y.; He, Mei (2015-11-20)
    Tumor-derived circulating exosomes, enriched with a group of tumor antigens, have been recognized as a promising biomarker source for cancer diagnosis via a less invasive procedure. Quantitatively pinpointing exosome tumor ...
