Drop size distributions produced by the turbulent pipe flow of
dispersions of immiscible liquids were measured photographically.
A mathematical model was developed which predicted both the shape
of the experimentally observed distributions and the experimentally
observed kinetics of the breakup process.
The mutually saturated water and organic phases were pumped...
Chipping varieties and model systems were used to determine the role of potato
constituents on chip color. Composition was evaluated by HPLC and chip color
measured using a ColorQuest colorimeter. Reducing sugar (RS) content did not
completely explain color quality when present in low concentrations (<60 mg/lOOg).
Levels of ascorbic...
A significant proportion of the population of the United States suffers from chronic pain, a category of disease that is not yet well understood by healthcare professionals. A majority of this group is made up of women; individuals who often have to convince healthcare professionals that their symptoms are real...
In his works, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916) and Ulysses
(1922), James Joyce demonstrates what he perceives to be the paralyzing effects of
those institutionalized religions that sit at the center of cultures. Drawing on Michel
Foucault's analysis of institutional dressage as well as his...
El Salvador's land resources are intensively cultivated.
Labor is relatively abundant and wages are low. This study
analyzed the effects of government policies and observed farm
price distortions on enterprise/weed control system choices
and associated income-employment effects.
A regional linear programming framework was employed to
analyze the effects of alternative...
In the Pacific Northwest, regulatory agencies have recently
implemented management strategies for restoration and maintenance of wood
recruitment to streams over time. This allochthonous organic material is a
critical component in the geomorphic and biological structure of forested
streams. Mathematical models are commonly used to evaluate long-term
wood dynamics in...
Conceptually, the dynamics of wood in streams can be viewed in terms of input
and in-channel processes. Input processes are associated with both the riparian (tree fall,
bank cutting, windthrow) and upslope forests (mass failures). In-channel processes
include log breakage, movement, and decomposition. A mechanistic view of these
