For over a hundred years, analysts have been concerned with
the static and dynamic behavior of flexible cables. Hanging,
towing and mooring cables have been extensively examined but little
work has been done in the area of the anchor deployment problem. In
the anchor deployment problem, a mooring line is...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the pieces of furniture
apartment residents had purchased and their use of this furniture within
the spatial limitations of their apartments. Comparisons were made
between long-term and short-term apartment residents and respective
demographic characteristics, furniture purchase patterns, attitudes
toward the functional aspects...
This biological assessment (BA) documents the potential effects of existing Forest Service (FS) Land and Resource Management Plans (LRMPs), or 'Forest Plans' and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Land Use Plans (LUPs) on the Canada Lynx (Lynx canadensis), hereafter referred to as the lynx. LRMPs and LUPs are collectively referred...
In the event of a small break loss of coolant accident
(SBLOCA) in a nuclear reactor, cold fluid is injected through
the reactor system high pressure injector to compensate for
the coolant loss. When this flow rate is less than a critical
value, however, the hot fluid in the cold...
Key decision variables in aquaculture management are stocking level, feeding schedule, temperature
control and batch length. In many management problems with an infinite planning horizon, the aim is to
find the batch length which results in maximum return if the same batch length applies to all future
batches. This may...
The anchor-last mooring procedure is investigated in order to determine the transient forces in the mooring line and the velocities of the anchor. Transient forces were determined and the results showed that no severe snap loads occurred for the cases investigated. In addition, it was found that the vertical velocity...
This field guide combines classifications of common streamside plant communities and native freshwater wetland communities in Northwest Oregon. It is a condensed version of two separate works which are both available on the CD that accompanies this book. The information is also available for reference or to download as a...
Expansion of the National Flood Insurance Program is
described in the context of a modification of Kates' Systems Model of
Human Adjustments to Natural Hazards for a small central Pennsylvania
town (1970 population=ll,O98) that became eligible for flood insurance
four months after experiencing five million dollars in flood damage
Acetylbenzoyl reacted with dimethylamine hydrochloride
and benzaldehyde in primary isoamyl alcohol under
reflux conditions to form 1,4-diphenvl-3-butene-1,2-dione,
compound I, which melted at 56-57°C.
Compound I formed a quinoxaline derivative, compound
II, which melted at 152.5-153°C.
Compound I was cleaved by hydrogen peroxide to form
cinnamic acid, compound III, which melted...
