This study evaluates the feasibility of retrofitting a rotary
dryer to a hog fuel boiler, using the boiler exhaust gases as the
Two simulation models were developed. As substantiated by experimental
measurement of existing boiler/dryer systems, each model
accurately predicts system performance given site-specific parameters
such as boiler...
Five NAIA intercollegiate men's basketball teams and 53 players
served as subjects to determine the role pre-game anxiety played in
basketball game performance. The study involved four games in which
Western Oregon State College competed against other small colleges
in Oregon during the 19 -81 season. Performance in basketball was...
This work examines the varied populations which have inhabited the South Fork region from prehistoric times to the present.
It disclosed that even though almost no archaeology has been done
in the area, data from contiguous regions suggest that persistent
and careful archaeological investigation should reveal valuable
and informative sites...
Three levels of dietary crude protein (8.6, 11.4, and 17.2) were
fed to 24 pony mares to determine the effects on the estrous cycle,
conception rate, and serum progesterone concentrations. Mares were allotted into three treatment groups designated as low protein (LP),
medium protein (MP), and high protein (HP). Following...
A strain of the phytopathogenic bacterium Pseudomonas syringae
pv. phaseolicola, a pathogen of common bean Phaseolus vulgaris,
harbors a 150 kilobase pair (kb) plasmid pMC7105. In one strain,
LR719, pMC7105 is stably integrated in the bacterial chromosome.
Imprecise excision of the pMC7105 replicon has been shown to result
A new estimator of effective area surveyed is proposed for use
in estimating population sizes or densities. The estimator is based
on the cumulative distribution function for the observed detection
areas and can be used with the data arising from either a line
transect or a variable circular plot survey....
The incidence and duration of breast feeding were determined
via telephone questionnaires from a sample of 95 women who delivered
healthy infants during the month of September 1982, in the greater
metropolitan area of Portland, Oregon. This sample was limited in
that the women were married, predominately white, over 25...
