User-centered technology a rhetorical theory for computers and other mundane artifacts by Robert R Johnson( file )
8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 2,001 libraries worldwide
Working from an interdisciplinary perspective, Johnson uses rhetoric theory to present a definition of user knowledge; human factors engineering to illuminate the ideological presuppositions built into technology design; and history, philosophy, and sociology to explain technological determinism, possibly the greatest impediment to user-centered technology development in modern times. The latter part of the book applies user-centered theory in two contexts: the nonacademic sphere, where the writing and design of computer user documentation is discussed, and the academic sphere, through a discussion of how user-centered concepts might drive university technical communication and composition curricula

Thermal Expansion Properties of Composite Materials ( file )
1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Thermal expansion data for several composite materials, including generic epoxy resins, various graphite, boron, and glass fibers, and unidirectional and woven fabric composites in an epoxy matrix, have been compiled into one comprehensive report. A discussion of the design, material, environmental, and fabrication properties affecting thermal expansion behavior is presented. Test methods and their accuracy are discussed. Analytical approaches to predict laminate coefficients of thermal expansion (CTE) based on lamination theory and micromechanics are also included. For space applications, a near-zero CTE is often highly desirable to maintain the thermal dimensional stability of a structure on-orbit. Although this is easily achievable with composite materials, it is often at the expense of some structural efficiency. A discussion is included of methods of tuning a laminate to obtain a near-zero CTE. Related references that describe these data more extensively are included. (MM)

Evaluation of Quarrying and Asphalt Construction Equipment ( Book )
1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
New equipment and construction techniques are being developed and incorporated by industry to quarry and produce aggregates and for the mixing and construction of asphalt concrete pavements. This report is a presentation of those developments and the pertinent pieces of equipment that could readily be incorporated into the Army's inventory. The incorporation of this equipment would enable units to significantly increase material production with compact, readily transportable machinery with negligible impact on Table of Organization and Equipment allotments.
