But I will offer my own rule of thumb: Pay attention to any discomfort you might feel about the tradeoff between a sloped
runway and a significant tailwind.
In order to consider the influence of slope effects, the analysis model for laterally loaded pile near sloped ground is set up as shown in Figure 2.
In order to study the effect of adhesion coefficient [alpha] on the lateral behavior of pile in sloped ground, this paper analyzes the parameter [alpha] from 0 to 1, with increment of 0.1, and chooses lateral load [H.sub.0] = 500 kN and the bending moment [M.sub.0] = 0 (kN-m) as the fixed loading condition to calculate and analyze the deflection of pile head.
In theory if a typist were to type on a negatively sloped keyboard with a wrist extension angle closer to a neutral posture than the approximately 200 extension with a conventional keyboard, then the typist would be less susceptible to WMSDs.
Research on how a negatively sloped keyboard affects wrist position -- wrist extension in particular -- has been sparse.
In 1992, as part of a road improvement project engaged in by the village and the Illinois DOT, the street in front of the Stodgels' business was widened, creating a sloped area between the street and the sidewalk.
She argued that the defendants were negligent in: 1) constructing or maintaining the sloped area by covering it with loose gravel while knowing that pedestrians would walk on it; 2) constructing or maintaining the sidewalk without a railing to prevent pedestrians from stepping from the sidewalk to the slope; and 3) failing to warn of the danger of stepping from the sidewalk to the slope.
