While 4D models (3D plus time) are becoming more prevalent in design and construction, the characteristics and use of these tools is still being explored. Research at CIFE(Center for Integrated Facility Engineering) is focusing on the usability of the models-not only in terms of their visual and communicative impact-but impact on the construction design… (More)
A technique of continuous sciatic nerve block is described.

A Phase I clinical trial of simultaneous 72-h infusions of dipyridamole and acivicin was carried out in patients with advanced malignancies. The objective of this trial was to determine the maximum tolerated dose of dipyridamole when administered as a 72-h infusion in combination with acivicin. The development of this combination is of interest because of… (More)
and the Journal of Fluid Mechanics published by Cambridge University Press, among many others. These are all available through the Texas A&M University library: newer articles are available through on-line subscriptions, and older articles (usually before 1995) are available in bound volumes in the library stacks. Supplemental Textbooks The material for… (More)
