At a state university in the Pacific Northwest, the authors surveyed 477 matriculating
college students about their immunization status, knowledge, self-perceived risk, and
health risk behaviors for hepatitis A and B vaccinations. Review of immunization
records revealed that 10% of these students were completely immunized for hepatitis
A and 58.8%...
A procedural manual for sampling and analyzing sanitary landfill
leachate was designed to guide sanitarians and other public health
officials in monitoring mineral and organic material drainage from
landfill sources. The manual was constructed to allow flexibility of
conducting analytical tests in a field or laboratory environment.
Step-by-step procedures for...
The major purpose of this study was to investigate the effects

Three groups of students were used in the investigation: the
experimental group, comprised of students enrolled in aquatic
activities, and two control groups, the first comprised of...

Forced vital capacity lung expiration examinations of nonsmoking
and cigarette-smoking male sample populations were compared to
determine if the 75 to 85 percent segment was a more sensitive test
of early lung dysfunction. The nonsmoking population was composed
of 240 men who were tested for values of forced vital capacity...
The pulmonary function scores of 250 male cigarette smokers
were compared with 406 lifetime nonsmokers. A Stead-Wells spirometer
was used to obtain forced vital capacity, forced expiratory
flow, forced mid-expiratory flow, and forced expiratory volume. All
individuals included in the sample were between. the ages of 20 and
A lightweight carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) c-channel beam was previously designed using analytical theory and finite element analysis and subsequently manufactured through a pultrusion process. Physical testing revealed the prototype did not meet the bending and torsional stiffness of the beam model. An investigation revealed that the manufactured prototype...
