The effect of ambient environment on the fatigue behavior of two Zr-Ti-Cu-Ni-Be bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) is examined in the present study. The first metallic glass, Zr₄₄Ti₁₁Ni₁₀Cu₁₀Be₂₅, was tested to establish the presence of an environmental effect in the fatigue growth curve measured in ambient air. Fatigue growth curves produced...
The metal-organic–framework MOF-5 is used as an adsorbent in advanced systems for vehicular hydrogen storage that are currently under development. Presently, these systems are limited by poor thermal conductivity of the adsorption bed, and thus our research addresses how the interfaces between grains of MOF-5 can be engineered to improve...
This research was conducted in the Mamora National Forest of
Morocco to: (1) Evaluate the effect of cork oak (Quercus suber L.)
crown cover on seasonal herbage production, nutritive quality, and
foliar cover on two distinctive sites in each of two years (1982,
1983) and to (2) assess the effects...
This study looks at the properties of glycerol/citric acid as they are affected by the
length and temperature of the bake used to facilitate the condensation reaction that creates
the polymer. In particular, the length of time required for the polymer to break down in
the presence of water, both...
Studies with fluorodifen were conducted to gain more information
about its field performance and the influence of light quantity,
quality and timing of exposure on its phytotoxic properties. Uptake
and trans location in three plant species were also investigated.
These studies were aimed at evaluating the usefulness of this chemical...
Meadowfoam (Limnanthes alba) is a winter annual oilseed crop
native to the Pacific Coast states. Seven experiments were conducted
to evaluate extracted meadowfoam meal (MFM) as a feedstuff
for poultry, rabbits and sheep.
Three experiments were conducted to evaluate MFM as a protein
supplement for broiler chicks and weanling rabbits....
Experiments were conducted to determine if the plagiotropic
growth habit of rooted cuttings of Douglas-fir might result from a
system favoring the accumulation of indoleacetic acid in the adaxial
side of the shoot in response to vertical placement.
Actively growing excised branch terminals were subjected to
gravitational disorientation to determine...
Sheep and cattle dietary preferences were determined on tall fescue-subclover ( Festuca arundinacea-Trifolium subterraneum) and
perennial ryegrass-subclover (Lolium perenne-Trifoliuni subterraneum)
pastures in western Oregon during the spring and summer periods
of 1964 and 1965. Esophageal-fistulated Willamette ewes and
Hereford and Hereford-Angus yearling cattle were grazed separately
on each pasture mixture...
