Crafts for crafts sake, 1973-88
Investigation and discussion of the magazine 'Craft' 1973-88. Focusing on the identity crisis of the handmade object in an emerging post-industrial world where,conventionally, craft had meant the deployment of traditional skills in the service of functional objectives

The Paradigm Laboratory Project
This project plans to develop problem-based inquiry learning laboratories that have science majors in introductory chemistry laboratories transfer an understanding of the attitudes and methods of scientific inquiry to knowledge and experiences in their disciplines of study.

Intuitive Biostatistics: Choosing a Statistical Test
This page provides a table for selecting an appropriate statistical method based on type of data and what information is desired from the data. It also compares parametric and nonparametric tests, one-sided and two-sided p-values, paired and unpaired tests, Fisher's test and the Chi-square test, and regression and correlation. It comes from Chapter 37 of the textbook, "Intuitive Biostatistics".
Food Interaction Study
This dataset comes from a study of 8 healthy males randomly assigned to a two-period crossover design, in which they either fasted and then ate, or ate and then fasted. They were given one dose of a drug, blood samples were collected and data on plasma levels were collected. Questions from this study refer to the absorption of the drug. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Pharmacokinetic Study of Carbidopa
This dataset comes from a study of 12 healthy males randomly assigned to a three-period crossover design, in which were given one of 3 doses of a drug. Blood samples were collected at specified time intervals, and data on plasma levels were collected. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage and plasma levels. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Organ Weight Study in Rats
This dataset comes from a study of 90 rats given one of 3 doses of a drug. At sacrifice, data on body weight and the weights of various organs were collected. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage and body and organ weight. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Developmental Signs Testing in Rat Pups
This dataset comes from a study of rats given one of 4 doses of a drug. The resulting pups were tested for developmental signs. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage and developmental response. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Exploratory Pharmacokinetic Study
This dataset comes from a study of 7 healthy males given a topical medication. Blood samples were collected at specified time intervals, and data on isomer concentrations were collected. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between time and concentration of the isomer. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Oral Toxicity Study in Dogs
This dataset comes from a study on dogs 4 doses of a drug. Data on the alkaline phosphatase levels in their blood was collected throughout the experiment. Questions from this study refer to the relationship between dosage of the drug and alkaline blood levels. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Datasets from Drug Research
This collection of datasets comes from several phases of drug research. Each dataset comes with a full description and questions to answer from the data.
This dataset comes from a study on two treatment sequences (AB, BA) given to 14 healthy male volunteers randomly assigned to a two-period crossover design. Three pharmacokinetic variables were collected on the subjects at the end of each treatment period. Questions this study focused on refer to whether the treatments (A,B)are equivalent. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Swim Maze Testing in Rat Pups
This dataset comes from a study on rats swimming in a T-shaped maze. Rats were given 4 doses of a drug, and their resulting pups swam the maze until they successfully escaped it 3 consecutive times. Questions from this study refer to the dosage of the drug, the number of swims until 3 consecutive successful escapes, and gender differences. A text file version of the data is found in the relation link.
Deposition of Gold Onto a Glass Substrate by Evaporation Through a Polycarbonate
The deposition of 10 micrometer gold islands on a glass surface by evaporation through a polycarbonate membrane is described.
Simplified method for predicting residual solvent content in polymer coatings
Polymer coatings have a wide variety of uses in a number of industries. The polymeric films are coated on a substrate in a wet state and are dried to meet residual solvent content (RSC) specifications. Drying models predict the residual solvent content in the films. Previous models are elaborate and involve coupled mass and heat transfer equations. These equations are non-linear partial differential equations and are solved using numerical methods such as the finite element and finite difference
Studies in isothermal heat conduction calorimetry: I. The 2-Drop Calorimeter and educational applica
Heat conduction calorimetry is a well-developed technology that can be used on a variety of levels ranging from high school and undergraduate laboratories to diverse applications in industry and research. Both the educational and research aspects of heat conduction calorimetry are explored in this study. The 2-Drop Calorimeter was designed as an educational project in collaboration with researchers at Dow Chemical, Midland, MI and Lund University, Lund, Sweden. Calorimetry Sciences Corporation h
Effect of transverse load on fiber bragg grating measurements (The)
The field of communications has been revolutionized by the advent of optical fiber. Optical fiber now connects most of the world carrying a vast amount of information through a very limited physical medium. To the materials engineer, optical fiber technology has stimulated interest in a new type of micro-sensor application, where the size, weight, and the ability to integrate the sensor into a material structure play a major role. Areas of interest currently include materials characterization, c
Model testing of passive site stabilization
Passive site stabilization is a new technology proposed for use in mitigation of liquefaction risk at developed sites. Liquefaction is the rapid loss of strength caused by earthquakes, typically found in saturated sands or loose fills, which causes the formation to flow like later. Liquefaction has been known to be a very costly occurrence claiming many lives, damaging structures and businesses, and costing billions of dollars in repairs; however, sites can be remediated to prevent liquefaction.
