The dynamic response of timber shear walls

Dolan, James Daniel (1989)
Publisher: University of British Columbia
This thesis describes three numerical models, developed by the author, that predict the behavior of timber shear walls. Two of the models have been implemented in finite element programs. One program predicts the static behavior of shear walls and the other predicts the dynamic response to earthquakes. Both programs incorporate 1) the ability to predict the ultimate load capacity of the walls, 2) the effects of bearing between adjacent sheathing panels, 3) the effects of bending in the sheath...

National Health Examination Survey, Cycle I, 1959-1962: Cardiovascular Findings

United States Department of Health and Human Services: National Center for Health Statistics (1989)
Publisher: ICPSR - Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research
The National Health Examination Surveys, Cycle I (NHES I), conducted during the period 1959-1962, were designed to secure statistics on the health status of the population of the United States. More specifically, their purpose was to determine the prevalence of certain chronic diseases, the status of dental health, and the distributions of auditory and visual acuity and certain anthropometric measurements. This collection contains information on cardiovascular findings collected from a medica...

Bureau of Health Professions Area Resource File, 1940-1990: [United States]

United States Department of Health and Human Services. Health Resources and Services Administration. Bureau of Health Professions (1989)
Publisher: ICPSR - Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research
The Bureau of Health Professions Area Resource File is a county-based data file summarizing secondary data from a wide variety of sources into a single file to facilitate health analysis. The file contains over 6,000 data elements for all counties in the United States with the exception of Alaska, for which there is a state total, and certain independent cities that have been combined into their appropriate counties. The data elements include: (1) County descriptor codes (name, FIPS, HSA, PSR...

Inventory of Long-Term Care Places, 1986

United States Department of Health and Human Services: National Center for Health Statistics (1989)
Publisher: ICPSR - Interuniversity Consortium for Political and Social Research
The purpose of this data collection was to provide a current sampling frame for two portions--nursing and related-care homes and facilities for the mentally retarded--of the Institutional Population Component of the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey. Data include type of ownership of facility, number of beds, age group served, types of persons served, and descriptions of facilities (i.e., skilled nursing home, intermediate care facility, licensed but not certified nursing home, long-te...

Anchorage to concrete

Eligehausen, Rolf; Sawade, Gottfried (1989)
Publisher: Universität Stuttgart
Embargo end date: 2016/03/31
Summarizing it can be said that material models based on plasticity and stress-strain relationships together with stress criteria indicating failure do not catch all aspects of anchor behavior as observed in experiments. Furthermore the predicted failure load depends on the element size and number of load steps. A better explanation of anchorage behavior can be expected by means of fracture mechanics.

Trust and credibility in risk communication

Renn, Ortwin; Levine, Debra (1989)
Publisher: Universität Stuttgart
Embargo end date: 2016/03/31
A good communication program should not start with communication at all, but with a critical review of the organizational structure and the potentials within this structure to meet the demand for openness and public involvement. Then a thorough analysis of the issues is needed to identify public concerns and characterize the risk debate. As late as then comes the design of the communication program with the formulation of the message, its proper packaging, channeling, sending, and testing in ...
