The analysis of a member carrying a combination of lateral and axial
loads (a "beam-column") is a problem of frequent occurrence in aircraft
structural design. This thesis presents the derivation and application
of the Polar method, both analytical and graphical. The method was first
suggested in Germany, several years later...
In the construction of a rifle for sporting or target work
there are several conditions to be met. In the first place the
rifle must be made to balance easily.at all times, whether the magazine
is full of loaded cartridges or is empty. In all cases the
barrel of the...
The purpose of this study is to develop
a workable plant layout
evaluation technique incorporating adequate
definitive measures of
intangible plant layout considerations.
A summary and critique is
given of existing evaluation methods. A
quantitative evaluation index
(QEI) is proposed to remedy the described
The proposed index can be...
Geometric design standards have not been developed specifically for low volume roads. Design standards and criteria are extrapolated from higher standard roadways that are often not relevant to low volume roads. Safety is a primary criterion used for selection of design standards along with economic, financial, social and environment factors....
The Code of Federal Regulations (10CFR20.1201) mandates occupational dose limits to the shallow, lens and deep tissue layers. The NRC-accepted procedure of estimating dose to these layers from contamination events is laborious. The current work aims to further the development of a portable phoswich-style skin dosimeter that will operate in...
A relatively recent development in the late 1980s in processors has been the superscalar processor. Superscalar processors use multiple pipelines in an attempt to achieve higher performance than previous generations of processors. Having multiple pipelines makes it possible to execute more than one instruction per cycle. However, since instructions are...
