Chemistry, meteorology, and the function of digestion : considered with reference to natural theology by William Prout( Book )

58 editions published between 1831 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 764 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book was the last of eight treatises from the 1830s that were commissioned by the Royal Society with advice from leading churchmen under the terms of a legacy from the Earl of Bridgewater. They aimed to support the idea that the natural world was made by a divine designer. William Prout, a respected physician and biochemist who specialised in nutrition and urology, argues in the introduction to this book that the biological adaptation seen in nature is divinely planned as a means to an end. His text covers chemistry, geology, the ocean, the planets, and processes of the human body. Remembered today for his discovery of hydrochloric acid in the gastric juices of animals, here Prout is on the front line in the early battles between scientific method and religious belief, a debate which continues to this day

Analysis of Modification Types in Navy Construction Contracts by William Prout( Book )

5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modifications, or change orders, in Navy construction contracts are a seemingly inevitable fact of life. In this report I analyzed nearly 8400 modifications in over 2200 completed Navy construction contracts from Southern Division of the Naval Facilities Engineering Command to identify the most frequent and expensive categories. Using the modification reason code, the modifications were divided into 20 categories and the effect of each of these categories was determined quantitatively. The data, which I found was not normally distributed, was run three ways: (1) Unadjusted; (2) Adjusted for planned or expected modifications; (3) Adjusted for planned or expected modifications and terminated contracts. The third way is the most representative of a "typical" contract and the modifications with the largest effect on contract price are: (1) Unforeseen Conditions, 2.65% increase over the total of all contract prices; (2) Design Changes, 1.82% increase; (3) Customer Requested Changes, 1.64% increase. Overall, modifications increased the average contract price by 7.78%, justifying the customary practice of including a 10% contingency in funding estimates. I also report on several problems in the use of modification reason codes that effect the analysis, though not significantly
