Geotechnical investigations of site and bearing capacity analysis are very important procedures for construction of building. Plate loading test is conventional method usually used to measure a bearing capacity of ground directly. But this method is not used widely because it needs large measurement space, long time for measurement and rather costly for single house foundation survey. Therefore, development of easy and cheapest way of bearing capacity survey is keen interest of Japanese geotechnical engineers. In this context, the authors have developed a portable ground bearing capacity survey instruments that could solve aforesaid problems associated with plate loading test. The relationship curve between the loading pressure and penetration directly gives the ground bearing capacity value.

Objective: The aim of this study was to explore the prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and/or autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and its relation to lifestyle in female college students. Subjects and methods: A total of 375 female college students (19.2 ± 1.3 years) among 439 students were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. Using a self-reported questionnaire, we measured the prevalence of ADHD using the ADHD Self-Report Scale-v1.1 (ASRS) and the prevalence of ASD using the Autism-Spectrum Quotient (AQ). In addition, lifestyle choices such as medications, physical activity, cigarette smoking, alcohol drinking and sleeping habits were also evaluated. Results: The suspected prevalence of ADHD was 102 students (27.2 %) and the suspected prevalence of ASD was 4 students (1.1 %). Only one student (0.3 %) was thought to have both ADHD and ASD. Subjects with suspected ADHD had higher AQ scores compared with those without suspected ADHD. There were no unhealthy lifestyle choices in subjects with suspected ADHD and/or ASD. Conclusion: The prevalence of suspected ADHD and/or ASD may be relatively high even among female college students in Japan. © 2016 The Japanese Society for Hygiene
