On the communicative role of word order in written modern standard Arabic : a contribution to functional linguistics (1989)
Thesis
Osman, M. On the communicative role of word order in written modern standard Arabic : a contribution to functional linguistics. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

The majority of the available studies which have been done on word order in Arabic are derived from improvised and restricted data taken from the classical variety of Arabic. ALL these studies are generatively-oriented, and consequently their main...

Identification of an epidermal growth factor receptor homologue in trypanosomes (1989)
Journal Article
Hide, G., Gray, A., Harrison, C. M., & Tait, A. (1989). Identification of an epidermal growth factor receptor homologue in trypanosomes. Molecular and Biochemical Parasitology, 36(1), 51-59. https://doi.org/10.1016/0166-6851%2889%2990199-0

Considerable advances have been made in our understanding of cell growth regulation in mammalian cells. In particular, studies on transformed and normal cells have highlighted the contribution of growth factor-related control mechanisms in cell growt...

The analysis and behaviour of composite space frames with profiled steel sheet floors (1989)
Thesis
Kuleib, M. The analysis and behaviour of composite space frames with profiled steel sheet floors. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

The objective of this research was to analyse and investigate the behaviour of a composite space frame. The space frame is assembled from individual inverted square-based pyramids. Each pyramid consists of a steelangle section top-tray and diagona... Read More about The analysis and behaviour of composite space frames with profiled steel sheet floors.

Design of self-repairing digital PID controllers for non-square multivariable plants (1989)
Thesis
Othman, M. Design of self-repairing digital PID controllers for non-square multivariable plants. (Thesis). University of Salford

The complexity of today's multivariable plants gives rise to the need for sophisticated control systems to ensure high-performance operation whilst maintaining high system integrity. The integrity of such systems is to be interpreted as the sensiti... Read More about Design of self-repairing digital PID controllers for non-square multivariable plants.

The relationship of personality to body image in adult women and the effect of exercise on this relationship (1989)
Thesis
Quinn, G. The relationship of personality to body image in adult women and the effect of exercise on this relationship. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

This study was undertaken in order to investigate the relationship between personality and body image, and to ascertain the effect of exercise on measures of personality, body image and somatotype. The subjects were 50 adult women in the age rang... Read More about The relationship of personality to body image in adult women and the effect of exercise on this relationship.

A historical survey of low-head hydropower generators and recent laboratory based work at the University of Salford (1989)
Thesis
Bassett, D. A historical survey of low-head hydropower generators and recent laboratory based work at the University of Salford. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

All life depends upon water. For man, however, water can supply the power necessary to relieve him from the drudgeries of life and give the time and means to enrich his existence beyond the bounds set by the mere need to survive. Large scale hydr... Read More about A historical survey of low-head hydropower generators and recent laboratory based work at the University of Salford.

The effect of material property variations on the failure probability of an AGR moderator brick subject to irradiation induced self stress (1989)
Thesis
Preston, S. The effect of material property variations on the failure probability of an AGR moderator brick subject to irradiation induced self stress. (Thesis). University of Salford

The failure of graphite moderator bricks in an Advanced Gas cooled Reactor (AGR) is potentially a serious problem. This thesis describes the generation of self stress in the moderator brick during irradiation and the derivation of a simple analytic...

The generalised beam theory with finite difference applications (1989)
Thesis
Leach, P. The generalised beam theory with finite difference applications. (Thesis). University of Salford

The conventional design of steel beams considers that any deformation of a member due to applied load must be a combination of the four rigid body modes (axial deformation, major axis bending, minor axis bending and twisting) i. e. the member retains...

Electric and magnetic phenomena in water and living systems (1989)
Thesis
Jaberansari, M. Electric and magnetic phenomena in water and living systems. (Thesis). University of Salford, UK

We are called organisms because our cells are organized into a cooperative assemblage of interacting elements. Human beings are more than simply bags of interacting chemicals walking around enclosed within 1.8 square metres of skin. It has long be...
