The Effects Of Selected Factors On Design Sensitivity, Leslie Horshal Cochran Jun 1962

The Effects Of Selected Factors On Design Sensitivity, Leslie Horshal Cochran

Master's Theses

Chapter I.

Background of the Study

Introduction

Design is a comprehensive term involving a multitude of areas and activities. Its meaning has varied according to individual tastes and philosophies; however, regardless of the terminology involved, it has always been associated with the planning for an object or a product.

Throughout history the emphasis on design has varied, but its basic framework has been present in all cultures. From the crude but honest designs of primitive man, through the Golden Age of Greece, by means of the Roman Empire, via the Renaissance, and throughout the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries, design served ...


Jurisdictional Disputes Within The Construction Industry, Dominick Joseph Magarelli May 1962

Jurisdictional Disputes Within The Construction Industry, Dominick Joseph Magarelli

Theses

Work assignment disputes, known as jurisdictional disputes are common in the construction industry. They are not only costly but annoying as well, The construction industry has always been plagued with this type of dispute because each of its many craft unions regards certain types of work as a proprietary right. They jealously guard against any encroachment of their area of activity by other unions. Sometimes lines of demarcation between the various jurisdictions are not clear. Also, the development of new products and methods often brings with it clashes between unions each of whom claim exclusive right to the work assignment ...


Sampling Inspection Where A Continuing Relationship Exists Between Consumer And Producer, John Carl Borg Jan 1962

Sampling Inspection Where A Continuing Relationship Exists Between Consumer And Producer, John Carl Borg

Theses and Dissertations

Because of such things as destructive testing, inspection fatigue, inadequacy of mechanical and photo-electric gaging, prohibitive cost of 100% inspection, and so on, sampling inspection for acceptance purposes has come into widespread use.


Narrow-Limit Gaging, Gerald F. Griffin Jan 1962

Narrow-Limit Gaging, Gerald F. Griffin

Theses and Dissertations

A manufacturer desires a control system that will ensure him of an acceptable level of quality. Since control usually implies more a need for quick and reliable indices of instability, rather than of non-conformance to specifications, gages made to inside limits rather than to specifications might work better.


Experimental Investigation Of Welded Built-Up Columns, Florelle Estuar Jan 1962

Experimental Investigation Of Welded Built-Up Columns, Florelle Estuar

Theses and Dissertations

This report is a summary of the experimental investigation conducted on columns built up by welding from universal mill plates of A7 steel. Particular attention was given to columns of medium size box shape cross section, and their behavior is compared with medium size H shapes and box shapes and H shapes of smaller sizes. The investigation included tensile coupon tests, residual stress measurements, stub column tests, and actual column tests. It was concluded that welded columns are weaker than corresponding rolled columns.


A Study Of Load Growth Characteristics Of Electric Power Systems As Related To Timing Generating Capacity Additions, Carl William Watchorn Jan 1962

A Study Of Load Growth Characteristics Of Electric Power Systems As Related To Timing Generating Capacity Additions, Carl William Watchorn

Theses and Dissertations

Methods used by electric power companies for estimating future loads as a basis for timing generating capacity additions have been examined. It has been found that these estimates deviate widely from time to time from the loads subsequently experienced. A method is developed for interrelating the total annual energy requirements, annual energy sales by classes, and the annual peak loads as a possible basis for improving the timing of generating capacity additions.


Evaluating The Inspector's Efficiency, Charles Moore Jan 1962

Evaluating The Inspector's Efficiency, Charles Moore

Theses and Dissertations

The objective of this thesis is to determine whether or not an experimental procedure can be applied to a routine inspection function and a standard derived as a guide for managment evaluation of inspector performance.


Compressive Properties Of Thin Steel Coupons, Robert H. Rampetsreiter Jan 1962

Compressive Properties Of Thin Steel Coupons, Robert H. Rampetsreiter

Theses and Dissertations

This report pertains to the tests on longitudinally stiffened plate panels. It gives a summary of compression tests conducted on thin steel coupons made from the material used in the fabrication of the panels.


Production Paths, Russel Bodnyk Jan 1962

Production Paths, Russel Bodnyk

Theses and Dissertations

In proceeding from 1 point of manufacture to the next, the part or parts flow through the process in what we shall refer to as production paths. We are interested in whether defects are uniformly distributed over the various paths.


An Investigation Of Vendor Quantity Evaluation, Thomas Vincent Mcconville Jan 1962

An Investigation Of Vendor Quantity Evaluation, Thomas Vincent Mcconville

Theses and Dissertations

The enormous complexity of the modern industrial system in the United States has accelerated the trend toward specialization in related areas of manufacturing. The result of this specialization has been a greater diversification of product-types among vendors and the assembly of an increasing share of supplier-furnished parts by large industrial concerns.


Stochastic Linear Programming, Charles Blanchard Millham Jan 1962

Stochastic Linear Programming, Charles Blanchard Millham

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Australian Tractor Tests : International A554d : Report On Test No. 36 (Farmers' Edition), G H. Vasey, W. F. Baillie Jan 1962

Australian Tractor Tests : International A554d : Report On Test No. 36 (Farmers' Edition), G H. Vasey, W. F. Baillie

Journal of the Department of Agriculture, Western Australia, Series 4

THIS Report is taken from the full Technical Report No. 36; results are shown here in briefer form: fuller explanations are added.

Values quoted may be rounded out to two instead of three significant figures; to this extent the values may differ slightly but not significantly from those shown in the Technical Report.
