Transistors: Counters

Transistors: Counters

Date: May 29, 1957
Creator: Pollard, Neith
Description: Abstract: "Two transistor plug-in decade counters are described, one of which operates over the SCS-7 temperature range. A transistor digital scanner with storage and parallel readout is described. It utilizes one of the plug-in decades. A simple design procedure for flip-flops is presented."

The Unified Soil Classification System, Appendix B: Characteristics of Soil Groups Pertaining to Roads and Airfields

The Unified Soil Classification System, Appendix B: Characteristics of Soil Groups Pertaining to Roads and Airfields

Date: June 1957
Creator: Waterways Experiment Station (U.S.)
Description: Report describing various kinds of soils and their characteristics, for use in constructing roads and airfields: "The properties desired in soils for foundations under roads and airfields and for base courses under flexible pavements are: adequate strength, good compaction characteristics, adequate drainage, resistance to frost action in areas where frost is a factor, and acceptable compression and expansion characteristics. Certain of these properties, if inadequate in the soils available, may be supplied by proper construction methods" (p. B1).

Flood Protection Plans for Cumberland, Maryland & Ridgeley, West Virginia: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Flood Protection Plans for Cumberland, Maryland & Ridgeley, West Virginia: Hydraulic Model Investigation

Date: January 1957
Creator: Waterways Experiment Station (U.S.)
Description: Report of a hydraulic model investigation "to determine the most economical method of providing protection for Cumberland and Ridgeley against floods somewhat greater than the flood of March 1936 Specifically, the model was used to determine: the proper sections and grades of channels required to pass the design flood with maximum reductions in flood stages; the minimum heights of levees and walls; and the channel treatment required at bridges to insure the safe passage of floodwaters with minimum alterations to the structures" (p. 4).
