Twenty eight countersunk culverts in Oregon were evaluated to assess current conditions and hydraulic performance. The culverts were also assessed with respect to their stability, particularly when subjected to high flows. In general, the culverts were
found to be resistant to erosion and effective at conveying large discharges. Based on...
A method of calculating decay heat is presented which is a simplification of existing calculational methods, the summation method in particular. The method involves the assumption that one physical process, neutron capture, is negligible in order to simplify the governing physical equations. A Greens function is derived and the decay...
This study evaluates the Earth Resources Technology Satellite-
One (ERTS-1) multispectral scanner (MSS) as a means of predicting
lacustrine trophic state and the magnitude of selected trophic state
Numerical classificatory methods are employed to ascertain the
trophic character of 100 lakes in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan,
and New York using...
The X-ray dose absorbed in soft tissue located near plane
bone interfaces and in parallel-slab bone cavities was measured
experimentally with a polyethylene-film dosimeter.
The dose absorbed in soft tissue adjacent to plane bone interfaces
was measured by placing a 12.7 micron film of polyethylene,
upon which were deposited graphite...
Two experiments were conducted to study the efficacy
of feeding lasalocid to cattle on pasture on a three times
weekly basis. In experiment 1, 72 crossbred yearling
steers were stratified across a randomized block design of
12 pens including three replications of four treatments.
Treatments consisted of: (1) .45 kg...
