TL;DR: In this paper, fish protein hydrolysates were prepared using minced fillets and Al-calase and papain from raw herring and from herring defatted by ethanol extraction, cooking and pressing.
Abstract: Fish protein hydrolysates were prepared, using minced fillets and Al-calase and papain, from raw herring and from herring defatted by ethanol extraction, cooking and pressing. Physicochemical, sensory and storage properties as well as the molecular weight sizes in spraydried hydrolysates were evaluated. Fat extraction before hydrolysis reduced degree of hydrolysis. Alcalase hydrolyzed samples to a higher degree than papain. Ethanol extraction reduced fishy odor to barely detectable levels. Papain hydrolysates were more bitter than those made with Alcalase. Color and nonenzymic browning measurements indicated darkening during 3 mo storage at room temperature (∼20°C).

TL;DR: In this paper, simple approximate correlation has been obtained to estimate relative density and angle of internal friction; proposed relationships applied to determine ultimate bearing capacity of footings and point resistance and skin friction of piles; results compared with field loading tests on plates and piles.
Abstract: From comparison between standard (dynamic) and static penetration resistances on number of sites, simple approximate correlation has been obtained to estimate relative density and angle of internal friction; proposed relationships applied to determine ultimate bearing capacity of footings and point resistance and skin friction of piles; results compared with field loading tests on plates and piles.

TL;DR: This survey shows that at present the composite of total omega-3 fatty acids in fish and shellfish may contain roughly equal proportions of the functionally effective eicosapentaenoic acid, and of docosahexaenoic Acid, or be biased in favor of more of the latter.
Abstract: Public interest in the health benefits of seafood lipids, or of fish oils, is a most unusual phenomenon because for once the recommendations of health authorities to "eat more fish" are in accord with newer and popular attitudes. Media exploitation of the more sensational health aspects is also generally in favor of more consumption of seafood. The public is however still confused by the multitude of species of fish and shellfish available, and in a quandary over whether fatty fish are risky in terms of calories or cholesterol, or of more benefit than lean fish in terms of omega-3 fatty acids. Most direct questions on how much omega-3 fatty acids are useful in the diet of an average individual may never be answerable until long term studies with humans are carried out. It does appear that marine fish can be broken down into four convenient categories: lean (including shellfish), low fat, medium fat and high fat; and in this review it is suggested that these could contribute, per 100 grams, respectively about 250, 750, 1000 and 2000 mg of total C20 + C22 omega-3 fatty acids. This intake can compare favorably with the alternative of commonly available fish oil capsules. Moreover this survey shows that at present the composite of total omega-3 fatty acids in fish and shellfish may contain roughly equal proportions of the functionally effective eicosapentaenoic acid, and of docosahexaenoic acid with its as yet unknown long-term biochemical effects, or be biased in favor of more of the latter. To assist the public, nutritionists, dietitians, and researchers this review discusses the distribution of fat in edible fish muscle, the classes of lipids encountered, and the major fatty acids of health interest. Included are limited numbers of analyses from parts of the world other than North America.

TL;DR: New procedures are introduced which can cope efficiently with parameters of all sizes which require sampling from the normal distribution as an intermediate step.
Abstract: Accurate computer methods are evaluated which transform uniformly distributed random numbers into quantities that follow gamma, beta, Poisson, binomial and negative-binomial distributions. All algorithms are designed for variable parameters. The known convenient methods are slow when the parameters are large. Therefore new procedures are introduced which can cope efficiently with parameters of all sizes. Some algorithms require sampling from the normal distribution as an intermediate step. In the reported computer experiments the normal deviates were obtained from a recent method which is also described.

TL;DR: In this article, the thermal degradation of four rice husk varieties (Lemont, ROK 14, CP 4, and Pa Potho) were investigated at three heating rates (10, 20 and 50°C/min) in nitrogen atmosphere using the technique of thermogravimetric analysis between ambient temperature and 700°C.
