Analytic pressure-volume diagrams are utilized to illustrate the effects of gasoline engine design on performance and combustion requirements. Topics discussed include design, construction, inspection techniques and servicing of the internal combustion engine and its components. Laboratory activities are performed to provide relevant hands-on experience to the students.

The Priory has been in the Chaworth-Musters family sincebut most of the daffodils were planted in the s. Since then, many of their names had been lost, so the Priory asked three experts — including our friend Ron Scamp — to help identify them.
We offer eight of them: Even if — alas! Cow dung is also profitable. Four gallons of heated water qualifies 20 gallons to milk-warm. From tulips and peonies to dahlias and iris, our gardens are filled with immigrants.
Mexico and South America — dahlias, tuberoses, rain lilies, oxblood lily. Africa — gladiolus, freesia, crocosmia. China, Japan, and Korea — most peonies, many daylilies, tiger lilies, Formosa lily, gold-band lily, red spider lily, pink surprise lily.
Asia from Turkey and Syria to Afghanistan and Mongolia — tulips, hyacinths, crocus, bearded iris, regal lily, Madonna lily, Byzantine glads, Elwes snowdrop, Turkish glory-of-the-snow, Allium sphaerocephalum, sowbread cyclamen, sternbergia, Siberian squill which, despite its name, is not from Siberia.
June Multiplying Hyacinths in and Today Daffodils, tulips, and most other bulbs multiply naturally underground by producing offsets or daughter bulbs.
Roman hyacinths do, too, but — after centuries of breeding — traditional garden hyacinths reproduce so slowly this way that bulb growers long ago developed ways to speed up the process.
The techniques described below by Liberty Hyde Bailey in his Nursery Manual would have been familiar to bulb-growers a century earlier and are still standard practice in the Netherlands today. Growth of stem and leaves is more or less checked and the energy is directed to the formation of minute bulbs.
The strongest bulbs should be chosen, and the operation is performed in spring or early summer, when the bulb is taken up. This operation is sometimes performed later in the season than the other, and precaution should be exercised that the bulbs do not become too moist, else they will rot.
The wounded bulbs produce very little foliage, but at the end of the first season the bulbels will have formed. The bulbels are then separated and planted by themselves in prepared beds.
Some of the strongest ones may produce flowering bulbs in three years, but some of them, especially those obtained from the hollowed bulbs, will not mature short of six years. If you do, please share your story and photos with us.

Objectives: To develop knowledge and understanding of the strength of plant fiber in a plant stem. To develop problem solving and experimental skills, for example, information is accurately processed, using calculations where appropriate, experimental procedures are planned, designed and evaluated properly, the use of microscopes, producing .
A rope is a group of yarns, plies, fibers or strands that are twisted or braided together into a larger and stronger form. Ropes have tensile strength and so can be used for dragging and lifting, but are too flexible to provide compressive strength.
Testing of single bamboo fibers: Tensile strength testing of the single bamboo fibers was conducted following the testing procedure described by Cao (). In brief, the fibers were.
