• #### The use of spin-labelling techniques in the study of Penning ionization reaction dynamics ﻿

(1992)
The use of spin-labelling to study the dynamics of He (2 $\sp3$S) metastable atom ionization of atoms and simple molecules is described. Briefly, He (2 $\sp3$S) atoms created by a microwave discharge are spin-polarized in ...
• #### The use of statutory control by U.S. state legislators: One step closer to a more complete understanding of legislative control of bureaucrats ﻿

(2009)
Legislative scholars examining the use of statutory control to oversee and control bureaucrats have consistently found that the political environment influences the amount of policy-making discretion provided to bureaucrats ...
• #### The use of strength-duration curves for system identification ﻿

(1972)
The inputs to systems which exhibit threshold behavior can be characterized by a strength-duration curve. In its most basic form, this curve gives the amplitude (strength) of an input required to exceed threshold as a ...
• #### THE USE OF SUPPORTED REAGENTS IN THE SYNTHESIS OF REACTIVE INTERMEDIATES (METHYLENECYCLOPROPENE, CYCLOPROPENES) ﻿

(1985)
The first isolable hydrocarbon derivative of methylenecyclo- propene, 1,4-di-tert-butylmethylenecyclopropene, was synthesized. The chemical shifts of the olefinic protons revealed that the dipolar structure Ia makes a ...
• #### THE USE OF SURFACE HOT-FILM SENSORS IN DILUTE POLYMER FLOWS ﻿

(1987)
The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of using flush-mounted surface hot-film sensors in dilute polymer solutions to measure mean wall shear stress. Experiments were conducted using hot-film sensors mounted ...
• #### The use of vertical grain size progressions in establishing the depositional environment of ancient sand bodies ﻿

(1982)
This study demonstrates the validity of using vertical grain size progressions as an environmental indicator for ancient clastic sequences. Previous methods of grain size analysis are shown to be generally unreliable for ...
• #### The vaporization of an electrically conducting droplet through the use of an external alternating magnetic field ﻿

(1994)
A nondimensionalized model is developed for a falling, electrically conducting, spherical droplet undergoing equilibrium vaporization. Vaporization is caused by the presence of an external, alternating magnetic field. This ...
• #### The Variability of Strains in Bolts and the Effect on Preload in Jointed Structure ﻿

(2019-04-19)
Torque wrenches are the most common method used for tightening bolts; however, this method can cause a large amount of uncertainty in the resulting bolt preload. With the inability to determine the preload in bolted ...
• #### The vascular system of the rabbit ovary and its relationship to ovulation ﻿

(1951)
Abstract Not Available.
• #### The velocities of HF-induced short scale striations ﻿

(1981)
Short scale striations are among the phenomena that occur when the ionosphere is heated by high frequency (HF) radio waves with ordinary mode polarization. These striations are electron density irregularities aligned along ...
• #### THE VELOCITY STRUCTURE AND TURBULENCE AT THE CENTER OF THE ORION NEBULA ﻿

(1987)
Using the Coude Feed System of the Kitt Peak National Observatory at its highest possible dispersion and a CCD detector with wide dynamic range we were able to examine in detail the radial and turbulent velocities of the ...
• #### The Venetian crystal workers' gild in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries ﻿

(1975)
The Venetian crystal workers' gild produced various objects in rock crystal ranging from reliquary crosses to eyeglasses and false gems. Although a highly regarded trade, the crystal workers' gild was politically and ...

(1956)
• #### The vertical urban environment ﻿

(1967)
Man, a gregarious being, is today assuming a passive attitude and his participation in city life is continually diminishing. This passive attitude is increasing due to: the enormous increase and technological advancement ...
• #### THE VICTORIAN HERITAGE OF VIRGINIA WOOLF: THE EXTERNAL WORLD IN HER NOVELS (TIME, SETTING, COMMUNICATION, LANGUAGE, SOCIETY) ﻿

(1985)
Woolf's Victorian background made her ambivalent towards the external world of time, place, history, society, physical phenomena, and language. The Victorian Age stressed factualism, time, and place, embracing society and ...
• #### The Victorian Religious Novel: Conversion, Confession, and the Marriage Plot ﻿

(2012)
Victorian scholars of fiction have hitherto largely overlooked that fiction was an important site for Victorian authors and readers to engage in open discussion of religious issues in the Victorian period, often known, ...
• #### The Victorian short story: A textual culture's forgotten genre ﻿

(2004)
This study claims a space for the Victorian short story in the literary canon. It explores what forces were at work between 1830, when the rise of the magazine created a venue for short story publication, and 1884, when ...
• #### The view from somewhere: Moral judgment in bioethics ﻿

(1993)
Secular bioethics has been involved in the resolution of moral controversies both in the clinic and in the discussion of public policy and there are three models used to justify moral judgments in bioethics. The first is ...
• #### The viola class of Yuri Kramarov: Students, pedagogy, and influences ﻿

(2003)
A Soviet viola player and a professor at the Leningrad Conservatory, Yuri Markovich Kramarov (1929--1982) was a musician in the most beautiful meaning of the word. He taught his students how to approach the preparation of ...
• #### THE VIOLENCE WITHIN AND WITHOUT: IMAGINATION AND REALITY IN THE NOVEL ﻿

(1981)
In response to the paradox implicit in the phrase "realistic fiction," critics have frequently posited that an oppositional structure is an identifying characteristic of the genre. My approach, developed in two theoretical ...
