Heat transfer characteristics and associated temperature and flow fields for natural convection in two-dimensional, square, partitioned and non-partitioned enclosures have been determined for Grashof numbers ranging from 10³ to 10⁶. The vertical side walls of the enclosure are isothermal with all other surfaces assumed to be adiabatic. An adiabatic partition...
As an increase in Americans seek their leisure experience in
rationalized forms of play, certain symptoms of non-enjoyment, non-flow
achievement are present; i.e., aggression. This relationship between
aggression and rationalized play has widely manifested in university
intramural sports settings. The review of literature provides the
logical development for this relationship...
Nucleate boiling of water in a vertical annulus was
studied. The test section was entirely of stainless steel
construction and was formed by a length of stainless steel
tubing with a stainless steel heater rod centered in it. Two
test sections with length to diameter ratios of 18 and 33...
To determine whether there were differences between foreign (Arab) and American student attitudes toward academic dishonesty in Oregon State University, a seventy-eight item questionnaire designed by Kirk, (1970) was adapted and administered to two hundred and eighty Arab and American graduate and undergraduate students. Three aspects of academic dishonesty were...
The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between stress, health, and health behaviors. The population for the study was made up of 231 full-time employees from Eastern Montana College. The subjects completed the Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS), the Seriousness of Illness Scale (SIRS), the La Crosse...
An investigation was conducted on parental influence
on adolescent's consumer activities in Malaysia. A total
of 4287 Form Four students from 32 randomly selected
schools, with 80 percent of their parents, participated in
this study. A majority of the adolescents were staying
with parents in rural areas. The adolescents received...
This research involves a numerical study of the
hydrodynamics of gas fluidized beds. We use the continuum
model, treating both gas and particles as
interpenetrating continua. The motion of gas and
particles is strongly coupled by the interactions between
them. For simplicity, we only consider drag forces.
We use MacCormack's...
In western Oregon the titratable acidity of grapes at
harvest may in some seasons be higher than desirable for
making quality wine, due to the retention of malic acid.
The purposes of this study were 1) to investigate the
effects of a vineyard cultural practice, cluster exposure
at veraison by...
