Making Audio/Visual Digital Collections Content Accessible for All Texans

Description: Project to improve audio/visual (A/V) content accessibility available through The Portal to Texas History at the University of North Texas Libraries. The project addresses the needs of Deaf and Blind users who often lack fundamental access for many A/V materials in digital repositories while also providing benefit to abled users and those with other special needs through efforts to transcribe, translate, describe, interpret, and chapter both research-oriented and primary-source A/V content.

MRI: Acquisition of a High Performance Hybrid Computer Cluster for Computational Modeling

Description: Research grant for the purchase, installation, and operation of a new high-performance computing (HPC) resource, called CRUNTCH4, to be deployed at the University of North Texas’ (UNT) Center for Advanced Scientific Computing and Modeling (CASCaM). This much needed HPC resource combines different computing architectures and significant amounts of data storage, all connected via a high-speed communications fabric. This computing resource will provide the means for CASCaM investigators to continue research on a broad range of topics including quantum chemistry, materials design, biomolecular simulations, machine-learning based chemical discovery, and bioinformatics, among others.

Development of Novel Approaches to Earth-abundant Methane Catalysis

Description: Research on catalytic cycles for C–H activation and functionalization of light alkanes based on the CMD (concerted metalation deprotonation) mechanism will be modeled for Earth-abundant metal dicarboxylates and related complexes. The impact of inner and outer coordination sphere effects upon catalytic cycles for light alkane functionalization will be assessed using computational chemistry techniques. The aforementioned studies will be leveraged to identify promising, synthetically feasible lead catalysts for experimental collaborators.

Modulating 3D Cellular Connectivity Via Spatially-Controlled Programmable Bonding

Description: This project seeks to demonstrate proof-of-concept for technology that allows one to systematically place cells on substrates to create complex 3D assemblies with precise control over individual cellular interactions. The technology generated within this proposal will open new avenues for studying multicellular communication pathways, stem cell differentiation, and understanding developmental processes. Spatially-defined cell-cell communication plays a critical role in numerous disease and developmental processes that include osteoarthritic degeneration, cancer metastasis, and organ regeneration.

Patterns and Drivers of Intra-Urban Heat and Pollution Island Interactions

Description: Research on the urban heat island (UHI) and urban pollution island (UPI) effects at the neighborhood scale by integrating sensor networks, earth observations, and geospatial analysis. We will also examine the spatial patterns and intra-annual variability of UHI-UPI interactions and model the urban form drivers controlling UHI-UPI interaction variability.

Process and Materials Development for Additive Manufacturing (AM) of Tungsten-Based Alloys with Superior High Temperature Performance and Good Room Temperature Ductility

Description: Research on CALPHAD simulations will be conducted to optimize the chemical composition of tungsten based alloys towards 3D printability while boosting mechanical performance through solid solution and dispersion strengthening. This will followed by powder prototyping to validate the simulation results experimentally and to finalize the chemical composition of interest. Process parameter optimization and post-process heat treatment design will help to achieve optimal low-to-high temperature mechanical properties. Mechanical testing and microstructural characterization will be performed to establish process-microstructure-property relationships.
