This study was initiated to determine the relative efficiency
of systematic, stratified and simple random sampling for crown area
and tree frequency estimation of five of the major forest types found
in the Pacific No ...
Nitrate contamination in ground and surface waters is of great concern to
environmentalists. A two-dimensional model of water and solute movement in soils was
used to test the usefulness and relative advantages of a tw ...
Interval arithmetic is applied to the problem of obtaining
rigorous solutions to integral equations on a computer. The
integral equations considered are the linear Fredholm equation of
the second kind and the nonlinea ...
Gusset plates are an important component of bridges. They are thick sheets of steel that join steel members together using fasteners and also strengthen their joint. Transportation agencies regularly evaluate and rate th ...
An attempt to determine the relationship between the computer,
the computer program exchange organization and today's practicing
civil engineer has just been completed. A questionnaire was used to
obtain information a ...
The emergence of the three-input majority gate as a practical
element for logical design has demanded a useful method of design
using these elements. In order to facilitate the use of this gate, a
digital computer pro ...
The primary goal of any model is to emulate, as closely as possible, the desired
behavioral phenomena of the real system but still maintain some tangible qualities
between the parameters of the model and the system res ...
A model was developed for the inventory control of the Volkswagen
spare parts distribution in Greece. The model utilizes the
capabilities of a digital computer, and features four systems, the
necessary system files an ...
Qualitative data analysis (QDA) is a time consuming and, potentially unreliable research activity. In qualitative research, a number of tasks must be repeated for every new
research case, even if each case is closely re ...
In current practice, design documentation often fails
to support the activities of design understanding,
communication, and redesign. A Design History Tool has been
developed to improve current design documentation. T ...
The Motor Systems Resource Facility (MSRF) at Oregon State University
presently conducts a variety of steady state tests on Motors and Generators, with
ratings of upto 300Hp.(225kW), using a dynamometer. The dynamomete ...
Much has been written concerning the determination
of a single sampling plan given two points on the operating characteristic (OC) curve. A computer program is
presented which will provide minimum sample size for
sing ...
A method for delineating watersheds by computer using digital
elevation model (OEM) data is presented. The five steps in this
process are detailed and examples are shown. The algorithm was tested
using a manually crea ...
Evaluation of the safety hazards along a highway is usually
performed at specific locations and on known hazards. But, it is also
important to find any unrecognized hazards and their locations. Many
factors contribute ...
In this work we propose a computer based approach by means of
which the decision maker in Bendel State, Nigeria, can best be assisted
in the formulation of policies related to land use.
In Chapter I we briefly discuss ...
For a certain class of Z²-actions, we provide a proof of a
conjecture that the ratio of the Perron eigenvalues of the transfer
matrices of the free boundary restrictions converge to the entropy
of that action. Also, a ...
