Quality Assessment Of Meat Patties Cooked By Commercial Preparation Methods, Chill Stored, And Microwave Reheated, Anne Looney Cook Dec 1977

Quality Assessment Of Meat Patties Cooked By Commercial Preparation Methods, Chill Stored, And Microwave Reheated, Anne Looney Cook

Doctoral Dissertations

Food quality assessments based on yield, cooking losses, and palatability factors were applied to a model food cooked by commercial preparation methods in a simulated chill/serve food service system. Frozen, soy-extended meat patties of a standard formulation represented a common food material flowing through a food service system. Batch sizes of 24 patties were prepared by (1) grilling, (2) baking by natural convection, and (3) baking by forced-air convection. Refrigerating of bulk packed samples and microwave reheating of plated samples concluded the input effects.

Cooked, whole meat patties were portioned with a specially designed cutting tool and recombined into ...

Landscape Painting In The Secondary Classroom, Margaret Shirley

Dissertations and Theses

This thesis attempts to demonstrate an approach to secondary art education which will emphasize the student's own experience as the basis of his art work. Furthermore, the students' learning activities are given a broader context by the inclusion of material from the history of art within the framework of the studio course. Such an integrated approach can give meaningful insight to the adolescent as he deals with experience in a visual form.

This orientation to art education has evolved through the writer's own teaching experience and from reading the works of art educators. In preparation for the thesis ...

Effect Of Stroke Rate On The Velocity/Time Curve Of A Rowing Shell, John S. Bernfield

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Master’s Theses

The 1976 U. S. Olympic eight oared crew was filmed (16 mm, 70 FPS) rowing six trials each at stroke rates of 37, 39, and 41 st/min. Shell instantaneous velocity was calculated and plotted for positions throughout the stroke cycle and a cubic spline curve fit to these data points. Time and percentage of total time for leg drive, upper body drive, transition, hands and upper body away, seat movement, and blades to water phases of the stroke cycle were determined. In addition, actual stroke rate, boat average velocity, and curve amplitude were calculated for each trial. Data was ...


The Relationship Between Teacher Enthusiasm And Student Involvement During Motor Skill Activities, Eileen Mcelroy Aug 1977

The Relationship Between Teacher Enthusiasm And Student Involvement During Motor Skill Activities, Eileen Mcelroy

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Master’s Theses

Due to the presumed effects a teacher's enthusiasm (T.E.) has upon a student, and the importance of student involvement (S.I.) in an activity, this investigation studied these behaviors as they occurred in the physical education setting. Two specifically designed descriptive-analytic coding systems were developed appropriate to the target behaviors. The subjects were five physical education teachers and a randomly selected student from one of each of their classes. The subjects were video taped, with a separate camera for each teacher and student. Three coders per system were trained until at least 80% inter-coder reliability was attained. The ...
