This thesis evaluates new, large power generating plants of
the various types expected to be practicable in the time span of
the next 50 years. By using thermodynamic principles, the plants
are evaluated on the basis of conservation of energy; the basic
assumption is that the best policy is the...
This report presents a refined method for the calculation of fuel centerline temperatures and the linear-heat-rating-to-incipient melting, ' Q'[subscript m], of mixed-oxide fuel typical of that to be used in the Fast Flux Test Facility and in Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactors. Of primary concern are the effects of the...
The direction and intensity of consumer attitudes toward prescription
prices by varying socio-economic positions and age groups
were measured by use of the semantic differential technique. The
potential relationships between consumer attitudes toward prescription
prices and (1) consumer prescription experience, (2) select consumer
knowledge, (3) select consumer beliefs, and (4)...
An investigation concerning the acceptance of a new, legend drug
product was conducted within a community of 15,000 population.
Twenty-eight physicians within the community were chosen for evaluation
relative to acceptance of the new drug product.
Data were obtained by means of a prescription audit of nine retail
The study investigated the prescription drug
purchasing behaviors of independent retail pharmacies,
and selected pharmacy characteristics which may be related
to purchasing behaviors. The purchasing function
was considered as a major area of concern for independent
pharmacies in attempting to improve operating efficiencies,
particularly in view of increased competition
Analysis of the pinniped remains from site 35 LNC 14 reveal
the presence of four species: Eumetopias jubata (Stellar sea lion),
Zalophus californianus (California sea lion), Callorhinus ursinus
(Northern fur seal),'and Phoca vitulina (Harbor seal). Ratios
based on minimum number of individuals calculations disclose a
high incidence of mature Stellar...
The Philpott site (35CS1) is located on the north bank of the
Coquille River near Bandon, Oregon. Test excavations at the site were
conducted in 1978 by Oregon State University under the direction of
Richard E. Ross.
One artifact assemblage and one distinct component were defined
during the analysis of...
Surveys of amateur artifact collections in southwest Oregon indicate
that traditional settlement pattern models for this region may be in error.
Based on the distribution of major styles of projectile points, at least
two distinct periods of occupation are definable. The Early period is
tentatively dated between 1000 B.C. and...
A sample of fish remains from two late-prehistoric
archaeological sites on the central coast of Oregon
were analyzed to partially evaluate two models of
aboriginal subsistence-settlement systems. One
model is based upon ethnograhpic data, primarily
Drucker's (1939), for Yakonen speakers collected
in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The...
