This instruction manual is anxious with ideas of human components engineering for layout of the human-computer interface. It has either educational and functional reasons; it summarizes the learn and gives suggestions for the way the knowledge can be utilized through designers of computers. The articles are written essentially for the pro from one other self-discipline who's looking an figuring out of human-computer interplay, and secondarily as a reference ebook for the pro within the zone, and may rather serve the next: computing device scientists, human components engineers, designers and layout engineers, cognitive scientists and experimental psychologists, structures engineers, managers and bosses operating with structures improvement.

Runoff samples containing the diluted bromide solution were collected at the point where each rill discharged into the collection trough. Samples of approximately 800 ml were obtained using polyethylene bags. The concentrations of diluted bromide in each of these samples were determined later using an ion analyser. From measurements of the bromide injection rate and concentration, and diluted concentration, rill discharge rate was determined. Mean flow velocity in each rill was measured using a fluorometer (Hubbard et al.

(1991) to identify roughness coefficients for selected crop residue materials.
