    • Domestic meat demand structure shifts due to changing household characteristics

      Dahlgran, Roger; Larkin, Sherry Lynn, 1966- (The University of Arizona., 1990)
      During the past two decades the fluctuation in the domestic consumption of meat products indicated precarious trends in meat consumption. Furthermore, changes in the prices of goods and income have not fully explained these trends, suggesting that demographic factors have influenced consumer tastes and preferences. Using an iterated procedure for estimating a system of demand equations the effects of own price, cross price, income, and selected household characteristics on the domestic demand for meat products were determined. The selected household characteristics consisted of health information, opportunity cost of time, and the desire for convenience. The significance of the cross price relationships, time trends, and demographic variables suggests certain consumer behavior patterns. These variables indicate that the increased availability of health information negatively affects those products which show visible fat, but not those ground or processed. The employment status of females does not influence meat consumption in any recognizable pattern. And, the acceptance of microwave ovens encourages the consumption of meat that is in ground or processed form, or packaged in small quantities.
    • Domestic violence: A profile of the abuser in Pima County

      Newlon, Betty J.; Hale, Gregory Allen, 1964- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      The purpose of this study was to develop a profile of the domestic violence abuser in Pima County during the year 1990. The population for this study consisted of 160 abusers who had been arrested for domestic violence and referred to the Pima County Attorney's Domestic Violence Diversion Program. The profile information was gathered from law enforcement reports, assessment forms, and domestic violence questionnaires. Also presented are conclusions, discussions, and implications. The profile areas of this study include the relationship between the victim and the perpetrator, the length of the relationship between the victim and the abuser, the number of children living in the home, the perpetrator's level of education, the ethnicity of the abuser, the age of the abuser, the employment status of the perpetrator, the income level of the perpetrator, the number of prior arrests and convictions, the abuser's alcohol and drug using behaviors, prior domestic violence events and frequency, the likelihood of repeated domestic violence, the abuser's support system, prior counseling experience, and present counseling received.
    • Domestic violence: A profile of the victim in Pima County

      Newlon, Betty J.; Randolph, Terry Earls, 1968- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      This research study, entitled Domestic Violence: A Profile of the Victim in Pima County, took 1990 information from the Pima County Attorney's Office Adult Diversion Program, and compiled a profile of the domestic violence victim in Pima County. Data was derived from police reports and questionnaires answered by the participants which were contained in files at the Pima County Attorney's Office. It was shown that the subjects displayed a number of similar specific characteristics. They were between the ages of 25-44, had 0-3 children, were Caucasian or Hispanic, had the gross yearly income between 0-20,000 dollars. It was also shown that the majority of the domestic violence came from a spouse or an unmarried partner, that the incidents involved alcohol and that the subjects suffered minor injuries which required little or no medical treatment.
    • Domestic water considerations within large irrigation and resettlement projects: A case study in Sri Lanka

      Maddock, Thomas, III; Myers, Abigail Ann, 1957- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      Domestic water supply, utilization and management were characterized within the Mahaweli Development Scheme in Sri Lanka. Domestic water in a Mahaweli-developed village was compared to that in an ancient village. Domestic water supply and quality were linked to irrigation supply and local hydrogeology. Taste, flow and accessibility determined water utilization. Hydrogeology in the ancient village provided a better domestic water situation. Agency-provided wells often went unused in the new village because of poor quality and unavailability of groundwater. Surface-water sources were likewise less reliable in the new village. Consequences of poor siting included increased workloads and health risks for domestic water users. Domestic water considerations that must be incorporated in irrigation/resettlement planning are presented. Simple hydrologic investigations utilization of local knowledge and participation can assist planners and managers to provide villagers with safe and acceptable domestic water.
    • The dominant theme of Rolvaag's novels: an analytical approach

    • Dose rate measurements in the cobalt-60 gamma irradiation facility using thermoluminescent dosimeters

      Ganapol, Barry D.; Quinn, Bruce David, 1955- (The University of Arizona., 1991)
      A dose rate measurement survey was performed at various locations inside the radiation chamber of the Cobalt-60 gamma irradiation facility located in Room 130, Building 20 at the University of Arizona. TLDs were used for the dose rate measurements. It was observed that the dose rates decrease rapidly with increasing distance from the source. Also, dose rates decreased with increased distance away from the centerline of the radiation chamber which is indicative of the position of the effective center of the source. Percent dose rates with respect to the dose rate of the calibration position were tabulated.

    • Double cropping in semi-arid regions using water harvesting agrosystems

      Rands, Barry Christopher.; Flug, Marshall (The University of Arizona., 1980)
      Recognizing the need for water efficient food production systems in semi-arid regions of the world, a Desert Strip Farming system (a method of water harvesting) was designed and constructed at Page Ranch to determine the feasibility of double cropping at that location. Crops grown during two consecutive winters offered only limited data due to animal problems, but the intervening summer crop of sorghum demonstrated the potential of the system with significant yields on less than 150 millimeters of rainfall. A detailed account of the design and construction of the system is included, as well as guidelines for determining the applicability of such a system to other semi-arid regions of the world. Five specific locations are outlined as examples of regions that could support double cropped agriculture using water harvesting agrosystems.

    • Double-Skin Façade for Energy Performance and Thermal Comfort in Hot/Humid Climate Highrise Office Buildings

      Chalfoun, Nader; Alkindi, Aisha Saeed; Youssef, Omar; Moeller, Colby (The University of Arizona., 2019)
      Dubai is one of the hot-humid regions characteristic with lots of high-rises buildings that consume lots of energy. In 2010 Dubai was mentioned as one of the cities with the biggest ecological footprint in the world and since that Dubai started to introduce green building evaluation systems and building codes to reach sustainability and reduce energy consumption. The commercial sector in Dubai consumes around 47.52% of the energy and 30% of this energy in the commercial building is used for a conventional cooling system. The question is can we generate a building-integrated system that will generate energy and achieve human thermal comfort without relying on conventional systems to cool the building? According to research building performance save half of the energy from natural ventilation applications. Natural ventilation is considered one important strategy that uses the unlimited resource of wind. The unlimited source in Dubai city is 8.5mph throughout the year. This research will introduce a new system called breathing in the wind system that stop the dependency on the conventional cooling system and let the building be more breathable by developing a double-skin façade that uses the wind power, solar power, maintain views, use natural ventilation to reach the human thermal comfort in the space and shading. Natural ventilation will be used all year round by applying two modes that depend on the availability of wind in Dubai city. In addition, develop methods of using software for natural ventilation analysis in buildings such as eQuest Energy Simulation, and physical modeling.

    • Downward Continuation of Bouguer Gravity Anomalies and Residual Aeromagnetic Anomalies by Means of Finite Differences

      Arenson, John Dean; Sturgul, J. R.; Sumner, J. S.; Norton, D. D.; Arenson, John Dean (The University of Arizona., 1975)
      The depths to buried bodies, characterized by anomalous gravity and magnetic properties, are determined by a combination of two numerical techniques. An upward continuation integral is solved by a method by Paul and Nagy using elemental squares and low order polynomials to describe the behavior of the gravity or magnetic data between observed data points. Downward continuation of the magnetic or gravity data is done by a finite difference technique as described by Bullard and Cooper. The applicability of the techniques are determined by comparison to depths determined by other means over the same anomalies and by comparison to various rule-of-thumb methods prevalent in the geophysical literature. The relative speed and cost of the particular computer system used is also considered in the applicability. The results show that although the initial costs of the computer program are high, the combined technique is as good as and at times better than the rule-of-thumb methods in determining the depth to the anomaly-causing body and is useful when more than just an approximate depth is of interest.
