A Two-Dimensional Model Study of Elastic Waves

A Two-Dimensional Model Study of Elastic Waves

Date: 1955
Creator: Fulton, Thomas K.
Description: In seismic field operations complex problems often arise which cannot be solved mathematically. In recent years investigators in both the commercial and academic fields have begun to approach the problems of elastic wave propagation by the use of seismic scale models. This thesis discusses the results measured from simulated seismic activity on a scale model built by the researcher.

Preparation of Pyridinium Derivatives of 2,3-Dichloro-5(8?)-Nitro-1,4-Naphthoquinone

Preparation of Pyridinium Derivatives of 2,3-Dichloro-5(8?)-Nitro-1,4-Naphthoquinone

Date: 1955
Creator: Mahon, Frank
Description: This paper describes the preparation of pyridine derivatives of 2,3-dichloro-5(8?)-nitro-1,4-naphthoquinone. A method for the nitration of 2,3-dichloro-1,4-naphthoquinone is also described. Certain 4-n-alkyl, 3,4-dialkyl, and 4-cycloalkyl pyridine derivatives are caused to undergo condensation reactions with the nitrated naphthoquinone, giving rise to a series of compounds of the preceding type (X). All of the compounds prepared will be tested for anti-tubercular activity by Parke-Davis and Company.

Strong Verbs in English

Strong Verbs in English

Date: 1955
Creator: Pearson, Sharon M.
Description: The purpose of this study is to give a brief history of the strong verbs in Old English and to trace their development in Middle English and in Modern English, concentrating on the last period. In Modern English two lines of development are of particular interest and importance: the confusion of children and illiterates in using strong verb forms and the treatment of strong verbs in recent grammars. It is hoped that this study will show the pertinence of these verbs and that from this study recommendations can be made as to the simplest procedure for teaching them.

Charles Ives and a Stylistic Analysis of his Three Piano Sonatas

Charles Ives and a Stylistic Analysis of his Three Piano Sonatas

Date: 1955
Creator: Harer, Carolyn Bertha
Description: This thesis has been written with several goals in mind. The first purpose has been to inform the reader about the life of Charles Ives and the influences he experienced that gave him the impetus to experiment and write music of a nature thirty years ahead of its time, while the rest of the world was basking in the waning light of Romanticism. The second purpose has been to describe in a short space general characteristics that may be found throughout the entire musical output of Ives. The third purpose has been to analyze in greater detail the major portion of his contributions to piano literature, the three piano sonatas, so that the student may better understand the complexities which will face him in performance of these compositions. Perhaps the strongest motivation for the present study has been the hope that it might induce more students to be explorers themselves and become familiar with this music of Ives.
