A circuit designed to generate and maintain a constant magnetic
flux is presented by using a sample-data control system, instead of a
continuous control system.
A Hall generator is used as the magnetic sensing element, and
is operated with a pulse bias to allow a large output. The output of...
The influence of planting patterns and plant spacings on grain
yield in field corn (Zea mays) was studied at the Oregon State University
Botany and Plant Pathology Field Laboratory near Corvallis,
Oregon in 1969. Plant characteristics and yield components studied
included plant height, ear height, number of ears, ear weight...
In this thesis a method is presented for maintaining the left
ventricular wall stress of the human heart at a constant level during
the systole (active portion of the heart's cycle). This constant stress
level makes it possible to take isotonic measurements on the heart
The left ventricle of...
The purpose of this investigation was to compare some of the
properties of a spore-forming mutant of Bacillus cereus 569R with
the wild type. The strains were grown under identical conditions in
liquid medium. The mutant, strain 45, was characterized with
respect to growth rate, pH changes in the medium,...
This thesis documents a new language which facilitates
the construction of Turing machines. The language translator
is written in Compass and has been debugged and is
available for use on the CDC 3300.
Righting behavior was examined in the asteroids Henricia
leviuscula and Leptasterias aequalis by repeating a standard laboratory
righting trial with a large number of individuals of each species,
and analyzing the observations made by statistical methods. Detailed
observations on the righting method, including leading pairs of
arms and righting time...
A study was made to evaluate the effect of different rates of N
fertilization on Nugaines wheat. The variable N treatments provided
different N regimes as a basis for evaluating potential diagnostic
tests for assessing the N status of the wheat plant. The crop was
grown in Lane county during...
Criteria for the design and construction of a prototype streamside
incubator for Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus) eggs and alevins
are described. Operation of the prototype and methods of transporting
freshly spawned salmon eggs from distant sources are reported.
Effects of water velocity, stocking density, and substrate type
on the growth, development,...
