Because of the fuel crisis and problems associated with thermal
pollution there is new impetus and urgency for developing more
efficient energy conversion systems for power generation. A preliminary
analysis was undertaken to determine the potential of staged
Rankine cycle systems for substantially higher efficiency. It was
necessary to optimize...
The flooding phenomenon can be defined as the maximum attainable flow
condition beyond which the well defined countercurrent flow pattern can no longer
exist. Thus the countercurrent flow limit (CCFL) or the flooding limit may be thought
of as the flow condition at which the strong interaction between the two...
Muitiregion annular geometry is a basic feature of energy removal
systems ranging from advanced heat exchangers to fission reactor fuel
rods. For the symmetric cases, the heat conduction through annular regions
is well defined. However, for a shift of an annular region, analysis
of the system must be made in...
This study examined the role perceptions of trustees
in the locally controlled Oregon community college system
and the state controlled Washington community college
system. Authorities in the literature were consulted to
define the "ideal trustee role" and the study determined
which governance system was most effective in fostering
Of great benefit, but not limited to seafloor mineral
exploration, is a technique that fairly rapidly determines the
composition of a drilled vibracore (in a time comparable to the time
involved in obtaining the core). The rapid assessment is desired to
predict whether a given region warrants further exploration by...
While seemingly harmless, stereotypes can play a significant role in prejudice and discrimination. In two studies, we examined stereotypes of Asian American women and how they may vary with different clothing types. We used a mixed factorial design with a sample of college students from a U.S. university. In the...
