Abstract
Abstracts of new technical reports and other documents resulting from research supported by the Directorate for Engineering and Applied Science (EAS) of the National Science Foundation are presented. These citations have been compiled to alert members of the scientific and technical community to current research results. Some of the categories under which they are organized include: public policy and regulation; public service delivery and urban problems; industrial organizations and markets; physical, mathematical, and engineering applications; biological and ecological applications; geophysical and environmental applications; earthquake hazards mitigation; chemical threats to man and the environment; alternative biological sources of materials; science and technology to aid the physically handicapped; intergovernmental programs; energy systems; non-renewable resources - fossil energy; renewable resources - crops and solar energy; and societal response to natural hazards. The Engineering and Applied Science Directorate (EAS) seeks to strengthen the U.S. engineering and applied science research base and enhance the links between research and applications in meeting selected national goals.
