The political use of racial narratives : school desegregation in Mobile, Alabama, 1954-97 by Richard A Pride ( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Arguing that politics is essentially a contest for meaning and that telling a story is an elemental political act, Richard A. Pride lays bare the history of school desegregation in Mobile, Alabama, to demonstrate the power of narrative in cultural and political change. This book describes the public, personal, and meta-narratives of racial inequality that have competed for dominance in Mobile. Pride begins with a white liberal's quest to desegregate the city's public schools in 1955 and traces which narratives--those of biological inferiority, white oppression, the behavior and values of blacks, and others--came to influence public policy and opinion over four decades. Drawing on contemporaneous sources, he reconstructs the stories of demonstrations, civic forums, court cases, and school board meetings as citizens of Mobile would have experienced them, inviting readers to trace the story of desegregation in Mobile through the voices of politicians, protestors, and journalists and to determine which narratives were indeed most powerful. Exploring who benefits and who pays when different narratives are accepted as true, Pride offers a step-by-step account of how Mobile's culture changed each time a new and more forceful narrative was used to justify inequality. More than a retelling of Mobile's story of desegregation, The Political Use of Racial Narratives promotes the value of rhetorical and narrative analysis in the social sciences and history."--Book cover

Mechanical behavior of boron-epoxy and glass-epoxy filament-wound cylinders under various loads by Harvey W Herring ( Book )
5 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A study was made to determine the mechanical behavior of boron-epoxy and S-glass-epoxy filament-wound cylinders under tensile, compressive, torsional, and pressure loads. These cylinders were fabricated in either an orthotropic winding pattern or an isotropic pattern. Conventional theory used to predict the elastic behavior of glass-epoxy filament-wound cylinders was discovered to be equally adequate for the boron-epoxy cylinders. Attempts to correlate cylinder failure strengths calculated from existing state-of-the-art theories with experimental failure strengths met with varying success
Design, tests, and analysis of a hot structure for lifting reentry vehicles by Richard A Pride ( Book )

A study of several oxidation-resistant coatings on Mo-0.5Ti alloy sheet at 2,500 ̊F by Donald R Rummler ( Book )
3 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The results are presented of a study of several silicide-base oxidation-resistant coatings applied to 0.012-inch-thick molybdenum-alloy sheet. The specimens were both continuously and cyclically exposed at 2,500 degrees F in air. The effect of three different types of thermal cycles was investigated. A failure mechanism is proposed to explain the severe reduction observed in the ability of a coating to protect the substrate when thermally cycled. A failure mechanism for the continuously exposed coated specimens is also proposed. The investigation includes the results of X-ray studies and room-temperature mechanical-property tests on the coated specimens
Salt-stress-corrosion cracking of residually stressed Ti-8Al-1Mo-1V brake-formed sheet at 550° F (561° K) by Richard A Pride ( Book )

Plastic buckling of simply supported compressed plates by Richard A Pride ( Book )
4 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tests were made of 14S-T6 aluminum-alloy square tubes to determine the critical compressive stress of simply supported flat plates in the plastic range. Excellent agreement is shown with with Stowell's theory for plastic buckling which is based upon a deformation theory of plasticity, close agreement with two other deformation-type theories of plastic buckling and withthe secant-modulus method, and marked disagreement with a buckling theory based upon a flow theory of plasticity
Party systems and democracy a cross-national study in historical perspective by Richard A Pride ( Book )

Compressive strength of stainless-steel sandwiches at elevated temperatures by Eldon E Mathauser ( Book )

Plastic buckling of extruded composite sections in compression by Elbridge Z Stowell ( Book )
2 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The theory of plastic buckling, originally developed for individual plates, has been extended to apply to combinations of plates such as H- and Z-sections. The theory has been applied specifically to extruded H-sections of 75S-T aluminum alloy; the calculated buckling stresses agree satisfactorily with the results of tests
Transient heating effects on the bending strength of integral aluminum-alloy box beams by Richard A Pride ( Book )
2 editions published in 1958 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Good agreement was found between the buckling loads determined experimentally for both types of heat input and local buckling loads calculated according to a theory that incorporates the .effects of material properties and thermal stress in both the elastic- and the plastic-stress ranges. A marked reduction in buckling strength was observed as a result of thermal stress
Experimental investigation of the pure-bending strength of 75S-T6 aluminum-alloy multiweb beams with formed-channel webs by Richard A Pride ( Book )
2 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Experimental results are presented for the pure-bending strength of 52 multiweb beams of various proportions. The beams were fabricated from 75S-T6 aluminum-alloy sheet material and had channel-type webs which had been cold formed with bend radii of four times the web thickness. Local and wrinkling modes of buckling were observed prior to failure. All failures occured with the formation of a trough in the compression skin extending across the web attachment flanges. The stress levels achieved at buckling and failure are discussed in terms of existing theory. Based upon the failure stresses, design charts are presented which permit rapid selection of the most efficient proportions for given values of an appropriate structural index
Poisson's ratios and volume changes for plastically orthotropic material by Elbridge Z Stowell ( Book )
2 editions published in 1956 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Measurements of Poisson's ratios have been made in three orthogonal directions on aluminum alloy blocks in compression and on stainless-steel sheet in both tension and compression. These measurements, as well as those obtained by density determinations, show that there is no permanent plastic change in volume within the accuracy of observation. A method is suggested whereby a correlation may be effected between the measured individual values of the Poisson's ratios and the stress-strain curves for the material. Allowance must be made for the difference in the stress-strain in tension and compression; this difference, wherever it appears, is accompanied by significant changes in the Poisson's ratios

The combinations of thermal and load stresses for the onset of permanent buckling in plates by George W Zender ( Book )
2 editions published in 1957 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A simple and practical method for evaluating the onset of permanent buckling in plates in the presence of combined thermal and compressive load stresses is outlined. A particular application of the method shows reasonable agreement with tests of 17-7 PH stainless steel square tubes. The results indicate that the compressive load stress which the plate can support at the onset of permanent buckling is substantially reduced as the temperature difference of the plate and adjoining members increases
