  • Transfer of load between precast bride slabs 

    Pauw, Adrian; Breen, John E. (University of Missouri, 1961)
    "This paper presents the procedures used and the results obtained in a series of static load tests designed to study the mechanism of load transfer between adjacent precast bridge-slab sections. These tests were undertaken ...
  • Method for obtaining the trees of a v vertix complete graph from the trees of a v-1 complete graph 

    Zobrist, G.W.; Lago, G.V. (University of Missouri, 1965)
    "A method is described for obtaining the trees of a v vertex complete graph through an iterative process. The iterative process is as follows, first find all the trees of a 3 vertex complete graph, then by an appropriate ...
  • The engineer becomes a professional manager 

    Rubey, Harry (University of Missouri, 1953)
    "Today over a third of the management of large industry in America is in the hands of engineers, over a third of mature engineering graduates now find their duties largely managerial in nature, and most engineers have ...
  • Supplemental irrigation for missouri and regions of similar rainfall 

    Rubey, Harry (University of Missouri, 1951)
    "The expansion of supplemental irrigation in Missouri will ensure satisfactory crops in those seasons where rainfall is inadequate in amount or distribution through the season, ensure increased quality and quantity of crop ...
  • Controlled-deflection design method for reinforced concrete beams and slabs 

    Pauw, Adrian (University of Missouri, 1962)
    "Describes a design method for reinforced concrete beams and slabs in which the allowable ratio of span to deflection is a criterion. The method may also be used for estimating deflections in given designs including those ...
  • Equivalent load method for analyzing prestressed concrete structures 

    Moorman, Robert B.B. (University of Missouri, 1952)
    "A method is presented for post-tensioned reinforced concrete structures whereby the effect of cable tension can be expressed as a distributed or concentrated load. The analysis thus becomes a simple matter of applying ...
  • Additions to sample data theory 

    Lago, G.V. (University of Missouri, 1955)
    "In the current literature, two different approaches to sampled-data theory prevail. One approach emphasizes the z-transformation methods for design and synthesis. The other approach emphasizes the Laplace transformation ...
  • Characteristics equation of cylindrical shells : a simplified method of solution 

    Pauw, Adrian; Sangster, W.M. (University of Missouri, 1962)
    "Messrs. Ramaswamy and Ramaiah suggest an elegant procedure for determining the roots of the eighth-degree characteristic equation. The method consists of converting the eighth-degree equation into a biquadratic and then ...
  • Measuring equivalent circuits 

    Hogan, J.C.; Verrall, V.E. (University of Missouri, 1960)
    "The equivalent circuit is a familiar tool to power system engineers. Today's large interconnected power systems often are studied as electric networks in which part of the network is a simplified equivalent of the actual ...
  • Coating thickness measurements using pulsed eddy currents 

    Waidelich, Donald L. (University of Missouri, 1955)
    "The nondestructive measurement of the thickness of one metal coated or clad upon another metal as a base has been studied for the past twenty years or more. If one of the metals is magnetic, the problem is relatively ...
  • Lightweight aggregates for structural concrete 

    Pauw, Adrian (University of Missouri, 1955)
    "In recent years interest in lightweight concrete has become widespread, not only on account of its light weight, which is desirable in floor slabs, walls and partitions, but also because of its high thermal and sound ...
  • An evaluation of the overhead projector in teaching kinematics 

    Covert, Richard P. (University of Missouri, 1961)
    "The overhead projector has been used as a teaching aid for several years, in elementary education and in engineering drawing. No use of an overhead projector in kinematics has been reported, nor has there been a statistical ...
  • Into the darkness : the erosion of empathy in the age of connectivity 

    Benson, Haley (University of Missouri, College of Arts and Sciences, 2018)
    “In an age of images and entertainment, in an age of instant emotional gratification, we neither seek nor want honesty or reality. Reality is complicated. Reality is boring. We are incapable or unwilling to handle its ...
  • Static modulus of elasticity of conrete as affected by density 

    Pauw, Adrian (University of Missouri, 1960)
    "The elastic modulus of concrete is an important parameter in reinforced concrete design and analysis. With the increased use of lightweight aggregates for structural concrete a better understanding of the relationship ...
  • Dreaming of love’s elysium : the prodigal beauty of John Keats’s Endymion 

    Gallagher, A.A. (University of Missouri, College of Arts and Sciences, 2018)
  • The end of Cape Town : neoliberal deception in K. Sello Duiker’s Thirteen Cents 

    Nutakor, Elorm (University of Missouri, College of Arts and Sciences, 2018)
    Centuries ago, white settlers arrived at the area that would become modern day Cape Town, making their first contact with Southern Africa. Today, the city emulates its past role by continuing to host foreigners. Cape Town ...
  • Under the Bell Jar and across the Wide Sargasso Sea : women’s mental health and wellness in novels by Sylvia Plath and Jean Rhys 

    Kjar, Courtney (University of Missouri, College of Arts and Sciences, 2018)
    Many works of women’s literature find their purpose by acting as ways to draw attention to what Maria Farland labels “the psychological implications of sexist stereotypes” (925). The 1960s saw an emerging trend of feminist ...
  • Swipe right : college, dating, and the digital world 

    Hurwitz, Kelsey (University of Missouri, College of Arts and Sciences, 2018)
    This thesis is about the modern process of “dating” or hooking up, the way technology is at the center of it, the exhaustion it creates, and the sadness for a loss of innocence/loss of simpler times/ loss of a better way ...
  • Mustache memoir 

    Conrad, Bailey (University of Missouri, College of Arts and Sciences, 2018)
