Better bamboo trusses

, : Better bamboo trusses. Building Research and Practice 12(6): 369-372

Four types of joint, suitable for use in bamboo trusses, were tested. The type that was chosen for further tests, mainly because of its performance and simplicity, is joined by pins (which support both the purlin and the diagonal) and the upper member of each joint is supported and protected by split bamboo. Trusses incorporating these joints can be made up to 8-m free span and can be loaded with a 4-kN permanent load and an additional live load of 2 kN.

Zwitterions are well known for their anti-biofouling properties. Past investigations of zwitterionic materials for biomedical uses have been centered on exploiting their ability to inhibit non-specific adsorption of proteins. Here, we report that...

Adherence of some wild-type and mutant strains of Vibrio cholerae was studied and the relation between adherence, motility, multiplication, and virulence was examined. Vibrios adhered readily to freshly isolated tissue segments of rabbit intestine...

The authors sought to determine the incidence, time course, and risk factors for overall adverse radiation effect (ARE) and symptomatic ARE after stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) for brain metastases. All cases of brain metastases treated from 1998...
