Avalanching and Self Organised Criticality, a paradigm for geomagnetic activity?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The characterization of global energy storage and release in the coupled solar wind-magnetosphere system remains one of the fundamental problems of space physics.Recently, it has been realised that a new paradigm in physics, that of Self Organised Criticality (SOC) may encapsulate the mixing and merging of flux on many scales in the magnetotail prompting bursty energy release and reconfiguration. SOC is consistent with qualitative measures such as power law power spectra and bursty bulk flows and with more quantitative tests such as power law burst distributions in auroral indices and auroral optical activity. Here, we present a careful classification of the broad range of systems that fall under the general description of "SOC". We argue that some, but not all, of these are consistent with our current understanding of the magnetosphere. We discuss the observed low dimensionality of the dynamic magnetosphere in terms of both SOC model properties, and observables. Observations of burst statistics are highlighted; we show that these are currently suggestive but not sufficient to confirm SOC and in particular we find that auroral indices are not effective at distinguishing the internal dynamics of the magnetosphere from that of the intermittent solar wind driver. This may also elucidate the paradox of predictability and complexity of the coupled solar wind-magnetosphere system.

Service Oriented Architecture in Network Security - a novel Organisation in Security Systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Current network security systems are a collection of various security components, which are directly installed in the operating system. These check the whole node for suspicious behaviour. Armouring intrusions e.g. have the ability to hide themselves from being checked. We present in this paper an alternative organisation of security systems. The node is completely virtualized with current virtualization systems so that the operating system with applications and the security system is distinguished. The security system then checks the node from outside and the right security components are provided through a service oriented architecture. Due to the running in a virtual machine, the infected nodes can be halted, duplicated, and moved to other nodes for further analysis and legal aspects. This organisation is in this article analysed and a preliminary implementation showing promising results are discussed.

objectives: 1) to compare the size and age composition of cod catches between a single-vessel otter trawl and a pair trawl; 2) to provide data on catch rates of cod off the NE coast of England using a single-vessel otter trawl, for comparison with last year’s programme; and 3) to evaluate day-night differences in catch rates. The project used the commercial pair trawlers FV Allegiance and FV Independence, and the single-vessel otter trawler FV Christina during the period 13 – 31 October 2004 No difference was found in the size composition of cod caught by the two fishing gears. However, the pair trawl caught five times as many cod per hour on average as the single-vessel otter trawl. There were several possible reasons for this difference in catch rate, for example the longer foot rope and greater headline height of the pair trawl, and some operational problems encountered by FV Christina in fishing alongside the pair team, but it was not possible to determine the relative contribution of these factors. The attempt to address three separate objectives during this FSP Programme resulted in only 19 tows being carried out by FV Christina to contribute to the potential timeseries

A Practical Approach to Managing Spreadsheet Risk in a Global Business  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Spreadsheets are used extensively within today's organisations. Although spreadsheets have many benefits, they can also present a significant risk exposure, requiring appropriate management. Protiviti has worked with a number of organisations, ranging in size up to huge multi-nationals, to help them build appropriate spreadsheet governance frameworks, including the design and implementation of policies, minimum design standards, control processes, training and awareness programmes and the consideration and implementation of spreadsheet management tools. This paper presents a case-study explaining the practical and pragmatic approach that was recently taken to control spreadsheet risk at one of Protiviti's clients - a global energy firm.

unknown title  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Almuth Ernsting assesses the current social and environmental impacts of large-scale biofuel production and questions whether ‘sustainability standards ’ will be enough to prevent serious problems. Few people now doubt that some of the biofuels used in Europe are produced at the expense of rainforests and other biodiverse ecosystems and that those should not be promoted as ‘green energy’. Nobody would choose to buy biodiesel made from Colombian palm oil grown on illegal plantations owned by companies linked to paramilitaries which have killed, evicted and tortured local people to grab their land. Governments and international organisations are therefore keen to develop ‘sustainability standards’. In Europe, various countries including the UK are planning ‘reporting requirements ’ on environmental and social sustainability. The European Commission has proposed environmental standards, though they do not include human rights and food security. Can sustainability guarantees work and ensure that biofuels will contribute to climate change mitigation and socially just development? Scepticism has come from many grassroots organisations, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and even a report published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

Status Report of the DPHEP Study Group: Towards a Global Effort for Sustainable Data Preservation in High Energy Physics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Data from high-energy physics (HEP) experiments are collected with significant financial and human effort and are mostly unique. An inter-experimental study group on HEP data preservation and long-term analysis was convened as a panel of the International Committee for Future Accelerators (ICFA). The group was formed by large collider-based experiments and investigated the technical and organisational aspects of HEP data preservation. An intermediate report was released in November 2009 addressing the general issues of data preservation in HEP. This paper includes and extends the intermediate report. It provides an analysis of the research case for data preservation and a detailed description of the various projects at experiment, laboratory and international levels. In addition, the paper provides a concrete proposal for an international organisation in charge of the data management and policies in high-energy physics.

In this digital age organizations depend upon the technologies to provide customer-centric solutions by understanding well about their customers' behaviour and continuously improving business process of the organization. Business intelligence (BI) applications will play a vital role at this stage by discovering the knowledge hidden in internal as well as external sources. On the other hand, Knowledge Management (KM) will enhance the organisations performance by providing collaborative tools to learn, create and share the knowledge among the employees. The main intention of the BI is to enhance the employees' knowledge with information that allows them to make decisions to achieve its organisational strategies. However only twenty percent of data exist in structured form, majority of banks knowledge is in unstructured or minds of its employees. Organizations are needed to integrate KM with Knowledge which is discovered from data and information. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the need of business insi...

To make a practical difference, this information needs to be disseminated and used in everyday clinical practice. This paper describes a highly successful knowledge management project, which uses the Internet to make the latest medical evidence available at the point of care. We describe how the project was implemented, its organisational impact, success factors and barriers encountered. The theoretical significance of this work is that this is one of the first empirical studies of a knowledge management project in the public sector. The practical significance of this study is that it provides a model for other similar organisations to follow in implementing such a project.

Part II - The effect of data on waste behaviour: The South African waste information system  

SciTech Connect

Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer This empirical study explores the relationship between data and resultant waste knowledge. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer The study shows that 'Experience, Data and Theory' account for 54.1% of the variance in knowledge. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer A strategic framework for Municipalities emerged from this study. - Abstract: Combining the process of learning and the theory of planned behaviour into a new theoretical framework provides an opportunity to explore the impact of data on waste behaviour, and consequently on waste management, in South Africa. Fitting the data to the theoretical framework shows that there are only three constructs which have a significant effect on behaviour, viz experience, knowledge, and perceived behavioural control (PBC). Knowledge has a significant influence on all three of the antecedents to behavioural intention (attitude, subjective norm and PBC). However, it is PBC, and not intention, that has the greatest influence on waste behaviour. While respondents may have an intention to act, this intention does not always manifest as actual waste behaviour, suggesting limited volitional control. The theoretical framework accounts for 53.7% of the variance in behaviour, suggesting significant external influences on behaviour not accounted for in the framework. While the theoretical model remains the same, respondents in public and private organisations represent two statistically significant sub-groups in the data set. The theoretical framework accounts for 47.8% of the variance in behaviour of respondents in public waste organisations and 57.6% of the variance in behaviour of respondents in private organisations. The results suggest that respondents in public and private waste organisations are subject to different structural forces that shape knowledge, intention, and resultant waste behaviour.

Developing A Safety Culture In A Research And Development Environment: Air Traffic Management Domain  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Measuring safety climate has been undertaken in many industries (e.g. oil, nuclear, aviation) over the past twenty years, as a proactive method of collecting safety information about the current level of safety in the organisation. However, there has been little work undertaken to develop the safety culture of the designers of these technological systems, to ensure that their designs are endeavouring to reach the highest levels of safety. A tool was developed to measure the current level of safety culture of designers in an air traffic navigation R&D organisation and contains 21 sub-sections under the following four main headings: i) Management Demonstration of Safety; ii) Planning and Organising for Safety; iii) Communication, Trust & Responsibility for Safety and iv) Measuring, Auditing and Reviewing. The findings indicated that the main areas for improvement are: i) the safety management system; ii) team integration; iii) responsibility for safety. Based on the survey findings some changes were undertaken in an attempt to improve the safety culture at the centre and a repeat survey is planned for April, 2005 to assess any improvements. This paper will describe the survey method and findings, the safety improvement plan, preliminary findings from the follow-up survey and lessons learnt during the change process. 1.

Offshore wind farms are set to become a major part of our electricity supply in the UK. BWEA, the industry's representative body has, since the earliest discussions of the potential, been committed to ensuring that offshore wind farms are developed consistent with good environmental practice and that they win the support of local communities and other organisations. We believe that these goals can best be achieved by our industry working with communities, local authorities, Government agencies, NGOs, other stakeholder groups and all with an interest in the schemes. The Best Practice Guidelines: Consultation for Offshore Wind Energy Developments provide a useful tool for achieving these goals. We are particularly pleased that so many organisations have already agreed to put their names to this document. We trust that the guidelines will be used by everyone with an interest in a proposal. We are grateful to the dozens of organisations who have worked with us in preparing these guidelines and we'll be pleased to hear from you with your thoughts on how we can make this document even more useful as the industry grows and we learn more. By working together, we can ensure that offshore wind farms are developed with the highest level of participation, consultation and satisfaction.

The Network Paradigm Applied to Criminal Organizations: Theoretical nitpicking or a relevant doctrine for investigators? Recent developments in the Netherlands  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The orthodox organized crime doctrine that focuses on more or less stable and hierarchical criminal organizations is slowly giving way to new and more sophisticated paradigmata, such as the enterprise metaphor and the concept of fluid social networks. This has certain consequences for control strategies. Thinking about crime more in terms of opportunity, of risk mechanisms, of personal motives, co-optation and seduction demands a willingness to depart from familiar paths and usual suspects. In the Netherlands, an unprecedented crisis of confidence in law enforcement in the mid-1990s produced the organisational and intellectual space for more elaborate approaches to organised crime. As a result at least two dozen academics have started working with and in Dutch law enforcement in some capacity, many of them with a direct involvement in operational matters. A multitude of solid organized crime analyses and studies have appeared, which confirm that the network mode of organisation between people and functional entities is far better adapted to modern modes of collaboration, trading and communication than the traditional hierarchic structures. Sophisticated network analysis methods need to enable investigators to identify positions of power and to attribute these to specific

The dynamic nature of threats and vulnerabilities within the E-business environment can impede online functionality, compromise organisational or customer information, contravene security implementations and thereby undermine online customer confidence. To negate these problems, E-business security has to become proactive, by reviewing and continuously improving security to strengthen E-business security measures and policies. This can be achieved through benchmarking the security measures and policies utilised within the Ebusiness, against recognised information technology (IT) and information security (IS) security standards.

A Cyclic Distributed Garbage Collector for Network Objects  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract. This paper presents an algorithm for distributed garbage collection and outlines its implementation within the Network Objects system. The algorithm is based on a reference listing scheme, which is augmented by partial tracing in order to collect distributed garbage cycles. Processes may be dynamically organised into groups, according to appropriate heuristics, to reclaim distributed garbage cycles. The algorithm places no overhead on local collectors and suspends local mutators only brie y. Partial tracing of the distributed graph involves only objects thought to be part of a garbage cycle: no collaboration with other processes is required. The algorithm o ers considerable exibility, allowing expediency and fault-tolerance to be traded against completeness.

Reliability and Functional Availability of HVAC Systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper presents a model to calculate the reliability and availability of heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems. The reliability is expressed in the terms of reliability, maintainability and decision capability. These terms are a function of the mean time between failure, mean time to repair and decision time. The availability is expressed as an operational and functional availability of the systems. These terms are a function of both the technical and human characteristics to maintain the systems in correct operational state. The result is based on a large amount data from operational organisations, the compulsory inspection of ventilation systems and momentary and continuous measurements made in HVAC-systems.

Modeling Safety Case Evolution - Examples from the Air Traffic Management Domain  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In order realistically and cost-e#ectively to realize the ATM (Air Tra#c Management) 2000+ Strategy, systems from di#erent suppliers will be interconnected to form a complete functional and operational environment, covering ground segments and aerospace. Industry will be involved as early as possible in the lifecycle of ATM projects. EUROCONTROL manages the processes that involve the definition and validation of new ATM solutions using Industry capabilities (e.g., SMEs). In practice, safety analyses adapt and reuse system design models (produced by third parties). Technical, organisational and cost-related reasons often determine this choice, although design models are unfit for safety analysis.

R.: Adding Semantics to Business Intelligence  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Despite the importance of analytical tools to organisations, they still lack the inference power needed to solve the requests of decision makers in a flexible way. Our approach aims at integrating business semantics into analytical tools by providing semantic descriptions of exploratory functionalities and available services. We propose an architecture for business intelligence, which uses semantic web technology based on IRSIII. In addition, we present OntoDSS, a prototype tool based on this architecture that illustrates some of the functionalities that may be provided to decision makers within an application scenario. 1

It carries out a comprehensive programme of energy co-operation among twenty-six of the OECD’s thirty member countries. The basic aims of the IEA are: • To maintain and improve systems for coping with oil supply disruptions. • To promote rational energy policies in a global context through co-operative relations with non-member countries, industry and international organisations. • To operate a permanent information system on the international oil market. • To improve the world’s energy supply and demand structure by developing alternative energy sources and increasing the efficiency of energy use. • To assist in the integration of environmental and energy policies.

Freezing and sorption/desorption of water confined in a Polymeric Electrolyte Membrane  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Nafion is a perfluorosulfonated polymer, widely used in Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells. This amphiphilic polymer adopts a structural organisation made of channels and cavities formed by the organisation of the sulfonate groups. Upon hydration, the cavities are filled with water in which are released the acidic protons to form a solution of hydronium ions in water, confined in the polymer matrix. Below 0OC, a phenomenon of water sorption/desorption occurs, whose origin is still an open question. Performing neutron diffraction, we monitored the quantity of ice formed during the sorption/desorption as a function of temperature down to 180 K. Upon cooling, we observe that ice forms outside of the membrane and crystallises in the hexagonal Ih form. Simultaneously, the membrane shrinks and dehydrate, leading to an increase of the hydronium ions concentration inside the matrix. Reversibly, the ice melts and the membrane re-hydrate upon heating. A model of solution, whose freezing point varies with the hydronium concentration, is proposed to calculate the quantity of ice formed as a function of temperature. The quantitative agreement between the model and experimental data explains the smooth and reversible behavior observed during the sorption or desorption of water, pointing out the origin of the phenomena. Other examples of water filled electrolyte nano-structures are eventually discussed, in the context of clarifying the conditions for water transport at low temperature.

Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Existing qualifications do not meet the needs of the sector in Queensland. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Businesses may not be best positioned to identify training needs. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Companies are developing training internally to meet their own specific needs. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Smaller companies lack the resources to develop internal training are disadvantaged. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer There is industry support for an entry-level, minimum industry qualification. - Abstract: Vocational Education and Training (VET) is an essential tool for providing waste management and recycling workers with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to beneficially influence their own employment and career development; and to also ensure productivity and safe working conditions within the organisations in which they are employed. Current training opportunities within Queensland for the sector are limited and not widely communicated or marketed; with other States, particularly Victoria and New South Wales, realising higher numbers of VET enrollments for waste management courses. This paper presents current VET opportunities and trends for the Queensland waste management sector. Results from a facilitated workshop to identify workforce requirements and future training needs organised by the Waste Contractors and Recyclers Association of Queensland (WCRAQ) are also presented and discussion follows on the future training needs of the industry within Queensland.

Scenario Modelling: A Holistic Environmental and Energy Management Scenario Modelling: A Holistic Environmental and Energy Management Technique for Building Managers Speaker(s): James O'Donnell Date: September 30, 2010 - 12:00pm Location: 90-3122 Seminar Host/Point of Contact: Vladimir Bazjanac At the operational level of organisations, building managers most commonly evaluate environmental and energy performance. They originate from a variety of technical and non-technical backgrounds with corresponding experiences, knowledge and skill sets. The profile of building managers as established in this work accounts for this diverse variation. Building performance data and information that is typically available for the established profile of building managers is insufficient for optimum operation.

BRITISH SOCIETY OF CRIMINOLOGY ANNUAL CONFERENCE ‘Research and Theory: New Directions in Criminology’ Hosted by  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

On behalf of the Local Organising committee, I am pleased to welcome you to the 2006 British Criminology Conference hosted by Glasgow’s three Universities. The theme of the conference is ‘Criminology: New Directions in Research and Theory ’ and many papers address innovative methods of research and theoretical developments. Other papers centre on the analysis of new directions in criminal justice and some, particularly fitting given the Scottish location of the conference, explore aspects of post devolutionary criminal justice in Britain. Hosting the conference in Scotland at this time is of particular relevance given the recent launch, by the Scottish Executive and SHEFCE along with Scottish Universities, of the new Scottish Centre for Crime and Justice Research. We hope that you will find the conference intellectually stimulating and our programme of receptions enjoyable. We also hope that you will find time to further explore the city of Glasgow, about which you will find information supplied by the Glasgow City Marketing

Regulation and Public-Private Partnerships  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

INTRODUCTION As a result of the development of the free-market economy, most countries are engaged in radical changes, not only in their economic functions, but also in the characteristics and the respective roles of the state and the private sector. The traditional concept of an autonomous private sector acting in pursuit of its own immediate goals, notably profit maximisation, and a public sector with discretionary powers and multiple objectives that relate to the pursuit of long term goals in the public interest, has been challenging. This concept apparently no longer reflects the dynamics and interdependencies of economics and social environment. Murray (1975) asserts that the changing situation seems to be evolving toward a mixture of public-private and government-market decision making with a blurring of the lines rather than a distinct bifurcation of responsibilities. Presently, a concept of co-operation between public and private sectors to form an inter-organisational partner

Inverted random nanopyramids patterning for crystalline silicon photovoltaics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We demonstrate a nanopatterning technique for silicon photovoltaics, which optically outperforms conventional micron-scale random pyramids, while decreasing by a factor of ten the quantity of silicon lost during the texturing process. We combine hole-mask colloidal lithography, a bottom-up nanolithography technique, with reactive ion etching to define nanopyramids at the surface of a silicon wafer. Thanks to the self-organised aspect of the technique, the beads are randomly distributed, however keeping a interbead distance of the order of their diameter. We tune the nanopattern feature size to maximize the absorption in the crystalline silicon by exploiting both anti-reflection and light trapping. When optimized, the nanopyramids lead to a higher absorption in the crystalline silicon than the conventional micron-scale random pyramids in the visible and near the band edge, with a superior robustness to variations of the angle of the incident light. As the nanopatterning technique presented here is simple, we e...

The Bioverse API and Web Application  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Bioverse is a framework for creating, warehousing and presenting biological information based on hierarchical levels of organisation. The framework is guided by a deeper philosophy of desiring to represent all relationships between all components of biological systems towards the goal of a wholistic picture of organismal biology. Data from various sources is combined into a single repository and a uniform interface is exposed to access it. The power of the approach of the Bioverse is that, due to its inclusive nature, patterns emerge from the acquired data and new predictions are made. The implementation of this repository (beginning with acquisition of source data, processing in a pipeline and concluding with storage in a relational database) and interfaces to the data contained in it, from a programmatic application interface to a user friendly web application, are discussed

Identification of R&D Needs Relating to the Mitigation of Fouling in Crude Oil Pre-Heat Trains  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Worrell & Price (at a paper presented at the Industrial Energy Technology Conference organised by Texas A&M University and held in Houston in May 2001) examined the potential of over 50 emerging energy efficient technologies covering a range of industries. In terms of projected implemented fuel savings achievable by the year 2015, minimisation of fouling in crude oil systems was found to be the second most significant of the technologies considered. It yielded a potential fuel saving of 123 TBtu (130 PJ) in the USA. The next step proposed for the development of the technology was R&D. Over the last year ESDU International, with support from the UK Government's Energy Best Practice Scheme, have been examining how these R&D needs can be identified and met.

An Evaluation of Economy-based Resource Trading and Scheduling on Computational Power Grids for Parameter Sweep Applications  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

: Computational Grids are becoming attractive and promising platforms for solving large-scale (problem solving) applications of multi-institutional interest. However, the management of resources and scheduling computations in the Grid environment is a complex undertaking as they are (geographically) distributed, heterogeneous in nature, owned by different individuals or organisations with their own policies, different access and cost models, and have dynamically varying loads and availability. This introduces a number of challenging issues such as site autonomy, heterogeneous substrate, policy extensibility, resource allocation or co-allocation, online control, scalability, transparency, and "economy of computations". Some of these issues are being addressed by system-level Grid middleware toolkits such as Globus. Our work in general focuses on economy/market driven resource management architecture for the Grid; and in particular on resource brokering and scheduling through a user-lev...

The purpose of the paper is to target audience and stakeholder individuals whom are in charge of securing the assets of their organisations and institutions. This paper starts by providing a brief overview of information security, outlining the main goals and techniques of the discipline. The paper also discusses the role of human factors and how the information security research community has recognised the increasingly crucial role of human behaviour in many security failures. This is followed by a literature review of human errors in information security. Finally, this paper discusses Reason's Generic Error Modelling System (GEMS) as a potential model for explaining human errors in information security [18]. The terms computer security, network security and information security are used interchangeably in this paper.

An Agent-Based Simulation of In-Store Customer Experiences  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Agent-based modelling and simulation offers a new and exciting way of understanding the world of work. In this paper we describe the development of an agent-based simulation model, designed to help to understand the relationship between human resource management practices and retail productivity. We report on the current development of our simulation model which includes new features concerning the evolution of customers over time. To test some of these features we have conducted a series of experiments dealing with customer pool sizes, standard and noise reduction modes, and the spread of the word of mouth. Our multi-disciplinary research team draws upon expertise from work psychologists and computer scientists. Despite the fact we are working within a relatively novel and complex domain, it is clear that intelligent agents offer potential for fostering sustainable organisational capabilities in the future.

Identity Management For Self-Portrayal  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Identity management systems help users to organise their digital profiles in order to communicate parts of them, whenever needed and wanted, to communication partners like internet services or personal contacts. Most current identity management research tries to achieve the highest possible degree of data hiding for best privacy. After sketching some of these projects, this paper presents a different approach where users are assumed to be interested in presenting themselves to selected online communities or internet services for better personalisation, to achieve a consistent reputation, or to establish an application- and serviceindependent internet society. It thereby stresses the aspect of privacy that persons have the option for self-portrayal. To support this thesis, a survey is presented which shows that many users who actively participate in Internet communities would make high use of such a system. Finally, the project "onefC" is presented which prototypically realises this approach.

Interpretation of parabolic arcs in pulsar secondary spectra  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Pulsar dynamic spectra sometimes show organised interference patterns; these patterns have been shown to have power spectra which often take the form of parabolic arcs, or sequences of inverted parabolic arclets whose apexes themselves follow a parabolic locus. Here we consider the interpretation of these arc and arclet features. We give a statistical formulation for the appearance of the power spectra, based on the stationary phase approximation to the Fresnel-Kirchoff integral. We present a simple analytic result for the power-spectrum expected in the case of highly elongated images, and a single-integral analytic formulation appropriate to the case of axisymmetric images. Our results are illustrated in both the ensemble-average and snapshot regimes. Highly anisotropic scattering appears to be an important ingredient in the formation of the observed arclets.

Momentum Scale Expansion of Sharp Cutoff Flow Equations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We show how the exact renormalization group for the effective action with a sharp momentum cutoff, may be organised by expanding one-particle irreducible parts in terms of homogeneous functions of momenta of integer degree (Taylor expansions not being possible). A systematic series of approximations -- the $O(p^M)$ approximations -- result from discarding from these parts, all terms of higher than the $M^{\\rm th}$ degree. These approximations preserve a field reparametrization invariance, ensuring that the field's anomalous dimension is unambiguously determined. The lowest order approximation coincides with the local potential approximation to the Wegner-Houghton equations. We discuss the practical difficulties with extending the approximation beyond $O(p^0)$.

Application of Learning Fuzzy Inference Systems in Electricity Load Forecast  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper highlights the results and applied techniques for the electricity load forecast competition organised by the European Network on Intelligent Technologies for Smart Adaptive Systems (www.eunite.org). The electricity load forecast problem is tackled in two di#erent stages by creating two di#erent models. The first model will predict the temperature and the second model uses the predicted temperature to forecast the maximum electricity load. For both model, learning fuzzy inference systems are applied. Initial fuzzy rules are generated and then the numerical data provided by Eastern Slovakian Electricity Corporation are used to learn the parameters of the learning fuzzy inference systems. The learning technique is applied for both temperature and load forecast.

R eflections Beware of your dishwasher! Your dishwasher probably harbours a fungus that is potentially able to grow in your brain. This disturbing news was presented by Polona Zalar at a Workshop on Black yeasts in Slovenia, May 2010, with data from a worldwide sampling study. Dishwashers appeared to be an excellent environment for fungi that we otherwise extract from nature only with great efforts and sophisticated isolation methods. Earlier also bathrooms, steambaths and swimming pools had been found positive for an array of black fungi that are otherwise known from human infections (Matos et al. 2002, Lian & de Hoog 2010). This waterborne mycobiota has large health implications, and has systematically been neglected in indoor studies. The workshop was organised by Nina Gunde-Cimerman and

Power law burst and inter-burst interval distributions in the solar wind: turbulence or dissipative SOC ?  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We calculate for the first time the probability density functions (PDFs) P of burst energy e, duration T and inter-burst interval tau for a known turbulent system in nature. Bursts in the earth-sun component of the Poynting flux at 1 AU in the solar wind were measured using the MFI and SWE experiments on the NASA WIND spacecraft. We find P(e) and P(T) to be power laws, consistent with self-organised criticality (SOC). We find also a power law form for P(tau) that distinguishes this turbulent cascade from the exponential P(tau) of ideal SOC, but not from some other SOC-like sandpile models. We discuss the implications for the relation between SOC and turbulence.

On-chip COMA cache-coherence protocol for microgrids of microthreaded cores  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper describes an on-chip COMA cache coherency protocol to support the microthread model of concurrent program composition. The model gives a sound basis for building multi-core computers as it captures concurrency, abstracts communication and identifies resources, such as processor groups explicitly and where mapping and scheduling is performed dynamically. The result is a model where binary compatibility is guaranteed over arbitrary numbers of cores and where backward binary compatibility is also assured. We present the design of a memory system with relaxed synchronisation and consistency constraints that matches the characteristics of this model. We exploit an on-chip COMA organisation, which provides a flexible and transparent partitioning between processors and memory. This paper describes the coherency protocol and consistency model and describes work undertaken on the validation of the model and the development of a co-simulator to the Microgrid CMP emulator. 1

Mechanism of laser drilling superhigh-aspect-ratio holes in polymers  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A brief review of recent theoretical and experimental studies of multipulse laser drilling keyholes in polymers is presented. The stationary keyhole profile is obtained after irradiation by a quite great number of laser pulses due to self-organisation processes and is a new more stable state of the surface irradiated by intense light. This concept together with ample experimental data obtained for various polymers form the basis of the analytical model of multipulse drilling holes with a superhigh depth - diameter ratio (300-600) (the so-called aspect ratio) by using UV excimer KrF laser radiation. The model reveals the main factors controlling the parameters of drilling holes by nanosecond UV pulses and, in particular, determines the conditions for drilling holes with virtually parallel side walls and very high aspect ratios.

Informing Science InSITE - "Where Parallels Intersect" June 2003 Paper Accepted as a Short Paper  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The paper focuses on the Business Intelligence systems. At the beginning, knowledge as an important and strategic asset that determines a success of an enterprise is presented. Next, some characteristics of the Business Intelligence systems are discussed and their architecture is described. Purposefulness of applying such solutions in an enterprise is highlighted. An integrated approach to build and implement business intelligence systems is offered. The systems are shown in four dimensions: business, functional, technological and organisational Keywords : Business Intelligence, knowledge, Balanced Scorecard, Case Base Reasoning Knowledge as an Asset of an Enterprise Contemporary economy is not based on natural resources any more. They are replaced by the intellectual ones. Intellectual capital -- so called hidden assets -- proves as important as financial capital while reaching objectives of an enterprise ("Knowledge Management", 2000). It enables better evaluation of enterprise abilities to generate potential profits than conventional standards. Hence, there are numerous proposals to apply more adequate systems of measuring potential of an enterprise in the era of knowledge -based economy. It is manifested in attempts to include intellectual capital (consisting of all that is found in the heads of enterprise members and all that is left in an enterprise when its members leave) in the balance sheet of an enterprise. Size, development and position of an organisation on the market are conditioned not only by financial and material capital but also by the intellectual one understood as quality of knowledge, knowledge range and its contribution to the market offer (Figure 1). Knowledge is applied in all key bus iness processes. It constitutes a prerequisite for the devel...

GROWTH OF THE INTERNATIONAL CRITICALITY SAFETY AND REACTOR PHYSICS EXPERIMENT EVALUATION PROJECTS  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Since the International Conference on Nuclear Criticality Safety (ICNC) 2007, the International Criticality Safety Benchmark Evaluation Project (ICSBEP) and the International Reactor Physics Experiment Evaluation Project (IRPhEP) have continued to expand their efforts and broaden their scope. Eighteen countries participated on the ICSBEP in 2007. Now, there are 20, with recent contributions from Sweden and Argentina. The IRPhEP has also expanded from eight contributing countries in 2007 to 16 in 2011. Since ICNC 2007, the contents of the 'International Handbook of Evaluated Criticality Safety Benchmark Experiments1' have increased from 442 evaluations (38000 pages), containing benchmark specifications for 3955 critical or subcritical configurations to 516 evaluations (nearly 55000 pages), containing benchmark specifications for 4405 critical or subcritical configurations in the 2010 Edition of the ICSBEP Handbook. The contents of the Handbook have also increased from 21 to 24 criticality-alarm-placement/shielding configurations with multiple dose points for each, and from 20 to 200 configurations categorized as fundamental physics measurements relevant to criticality safety applications. Approximately 25 new evaluations and 150 additional configurations are expected to be added to the 2011 edition of the Handbook. Since ICNC 2007, the contents of the 'International Handbook of Evaluated Reactor Physics Benchmark Experiments2' have increased from 16 different experimental series that were performed at 12 different reactor facilities to 53 experimental series that were performed at 30 different reactor facilities in the 2011 edition of the Handbook. Considerable effort has also been made to improve the functionality of the searchable database, DICE (Database for the International Criticality Benchmark Evaluation Project) and verify the accuracy of the data contained therein. DICE will be discussed in separate papers at ICNC 2011. The status of the ICSBEP and the IRPhEP will be discussed in the full paper, selected benchmarks that have been added to the ICSBEP Handbook will be highlighted, and a preview of the new benchmarks that will appear in the September 2011 edition of the Handbook will be provided. Accomplishments of the IRPhEP will also be highlighted and the future of both projects will be discussed.

Mind the gap in SEA: An institutional perspective on why assessment of synergies amongst climate change mitigation, adaptation and other policy areas are missing  

SciTech Connect

This article takes its point of departure in two approaches to integrating climate change into Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA): Mitigation and adaptation, and in the fact that these, as well as the synergies between them and other policy areas, are needed as part of an integrated assessment and policy response. First, the article makes a review of how positive and negative synergies between a) climate change mitigation and adaptation and b) climate change and other environmental concerns are integrated into Danish SEA practice. Then, the article discusses the implications of not addressing synergies. Finally, the article explores institutional explanations as to why synergies are not addressed in SEA practice. A document analysis of 149 Danish SEA reports shows that only one report comprises the assessment of synergies between mitigation and adaptation, whilst 9,4% of the reports assess the synergies between climate change and other environmental concerns. The consequences of separation are both the risk of trade-offs and missed opportunities for enhancing positive synergies. In order to propose explanations for the lacking integration, the institutional background is analysed and discussed, mainly based on Scott's theory of institutions. The institutional analysis highlights a regulatory element, since the assessment of climate change synergies is underpinned by legislation, but not by guidance. This means that great focus is on normative elements such as the local interpretation of legislation and of climate change mitigation and adaptation. The analysis also focuses on how the fragmentation of the organisation in which climate change and SEA are embedded has bearings on both normative and cultural-cognitive elements. This makes the assessment of synergies challenging. The evidence gathered and presented in the article points to a need for developing the SEA process and methodology in Denmark with the aim to include climate change in the assessments in a more systematic and integrated manner. - Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Synergies between climate change mitigation, adaptation and other environmental concerns are not addressed in Danish SEA. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Institutional explanations relate to organisational set-ups and understandings of climate change as a new planning issue.

SARNET: Integrating Severe Accident Research in Europe - Safety Issues in the Source Term Area  

SciTech Connect

SARNET (Severe Accident Research Network) is a Network of Excellence of the EU 6. Framework Programme that integrates in a sustainable manner the research capabilities of about fifty European organisations to resolve important remaining uncertainties and safety issues concerning existing and future nuclear plant, especially water-cooled reactors, under hypothetical severe accident conditions. It emphasises integrating activities, spreading of excellence (including knowledge transfer) and jointly-executed research. This paper summarises the main results obtained at the middle of the current 4-year term, highlighting those concerning radioactive release to the environment. Integration is pursued through different methods: the ASTEC integral computer code for severe accident modelling, development of PSA level 2 methods, a means for definition, updating and resolution of safety issues, and development of a web database for storing experimental results. These activities are helped by an evolving Advanced Communication Tool, easing communication amongst partners. Concerning spreading of excellence, educational courses covering severe accident analysis methodology and level 2 PSA have been organised for early 2006. A text book on Severe Accident Phenomenology is being written. A mobility programme for students and young researchers has started. Results are disseminated mainly through open conference proceedings, with journal publications planned. The 1. European Review Meeting on Severe Accidents in November 2005 covered SARNET activities during its first 18 months. Jointly executed research activities concern key issues grouped in the Corium, Containment and Source Term areas. In Source Term, behaviour of the highly radio-toxic ruthenium under oxidising conditions, including air ingress, is investigated. Models are proposed for fuel and ruthenium oxidation. Experiments on transport of oxide ruthenium species are performed. Reactor scenario studies assist in defining conditions for new experiments. Regarding predictability of iodine species exiting the Reactor Coolant System (RCS), which affects the amount entering the containment, iodine behaviour in the circuit and silver-indium-cadmium (SIC) release have been reviewed. New experiments are being discussed and performed, and SIC degradation and release models are being improved. For the radioactive aerosol source term, work is conducted in the risk-relevant areas of steam generator (SG) tube rupture, transport through cracks in containment walls and revaporization from previous deposits in the RCS that could lead to a delayed source term. Models for aerosol retention in containment cracks and interpretation of data on retention in the SG secondary side are proposed. For radioactive iodine release to the environment, many physical and chemical processes affect the iodine concentration in the containment atmosphere; of these effects, mass transfer phenomena and radiolytic oxidation are being investigated first.

Development of the triage, monitoring and treatment Handbook for Members of the Public Affected by Radiological Terrorism - A European Response  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

European national emergency response plans have long been focused on accidents at nuclear power plants. Recently, the possible threats by disaffected groups have shifted the focus to being prepared also for malevolent use of radiation that are aimed at creating disruption and panic in the society. The casualties will most likely be members of the public. According to the scenario, the number of affected people can vary from a few to mass casualties. The radiation exposure can range from very low to substantial, possibly combined with conventional injuries. There is a need to develop practicable tools for the adequate response to such acts and more specifically to address European guidelines for triage, monitoring and treatment of exposed people. Although European countries have developed emergency response plans for nuclear accidents they have not all made plans for handling malevolent use of radioactive material. Indeed, there is a need to develop practical guidance on emergency response and medical treatment of the public affected by malevolent acts. Generic guidance on this topic has been published by international organisations. They are, however, not operational documents to be used in emergency situations. The Triage, Monitoring and Treatment (TMT) Handbook aims to strengthen the European ability to efficiently respond to malevolent acts in terms of protecting and treating exposed people. Part of the Handbook is also devoted to public information and communication issues which would contribute to public reassurance in emergency situations. The Handbook will be drafted by European and international experts before it is circulated to all emergency response institutions in Europe that would be a part of the handling of malevolent acts using radioactive material. The institutions would be given a 6 months consultation time with encouragement to test the draft Handbook in national exercises. A workshop will allow feedback from these end users on the content, structure and usefulness of the Handbook before a final version is produced. In order to achieve the project's objectives a consortium has been drawn together including, Belgian Nuclear Research Centre, the Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority, Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority of Finland, the UK Health Protection Agency, the Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection of Poland and the World Health Organisation. Enviros Consulting is acting as the technical secretariat for the project. The Handbook will aim to harmonise the approaches to handling malevolent acts across Europe. This harmonisation will have an added value on the public confidence in authorities since differing approaches in neighbouring countries could lead to public confusion and mistrust. (authors)

DIP: The Database of Interacting Proteins  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

The DIP Database catalogs experimentally determined interactions between proteins. It combines information from a variety of sources to create a single, consistent set of protein-protein interactions. By interaction, the DIP Database creators mean that two amino acid chains were experimentally identified to bind to each other. The database lists such pairs to aid those studying a particular protein-protein interaction but also those investigating entire regulatory and signaling pathways as well as those studying the organisation and complexity of the protein interaction network at the cellular level. The data stored within the DIP database were curated, both, manually by expert curators and also automatically using computational approaches that utilize the knowledge about the protein-protein interaction networks extracted from the most reliable, core subset of the DIP data. It is a relational database that can be searched by protein, sequence, motif, article information, and pathBLAST. The website also serves as an access point to a number of projects related to DIP, such as LiveDIP, The Database of Ligand-Receptor Partners (DLRP) and JDIP. Users have free and open access to DIP after login. [Taken from the DIP Guide and the DIP website] (Specialized Interface) (Registration Required)

125. Statistics and Evaluation with University Libraries Simultaneous Interpretation: Yes Library Management with Cost Data  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The paper deals with methods of cost analysis in libraries and with the use of cost data in library management. It explains the difference of cost accounting to the traditional statistics of income and expenses and shows the value of cost data for organizational decisions. Cost accounting must always be seen in connection with the mission and goals of the library and with quality measures; it should be used as one component of an integrated controlling. Libraries today are experiencing growing problems when organising their work and offering their services within the given budget and resources. The rapid development of electronic publications and technology raises the demand for new web-based-services and for information delivery directly to the working place. On the other side, funding cuts and rising prices reduce the scope for acting: The dilemma is how to accomplish more with less resources. In addition, there is a general demand for transparency as to costs and quality in all areas, especially in the public sector. Funders, institutions, and the public want to know about the resources spent and the values achieved. Thus, financial problems as well as evaluation procedures make it imperative to use more differentiated methods of cost analysis than the

A meeting of the minds on the genome project  

SciTech Connect

There has been some resentment over the the rapidly expanding budget for the Human Genome Project. The genome project is budgeted at nearly $90 million at NIH and $46 million at DOE. Some critics believe this is not being fair to other research efforts. There has also been some differences in opinion in the project's research plans. Bernard Davis of Harvard Medical School supports the first goal of the genome project, mapping the human chromosomes, and thinks sequencing model organisms is a good idea. However, he can't see the value in working out every nucleotide base in the human genome. But, once it was impressed upon Davis that no one is contemplating all-out sequencing for at least 5 years, and even then only if the cost comes down, he endorsed the current plan to map and partially sequence complementary DNAs, or expressed genes. Another skeptic, Don Brown of Carnegie Institution, is opposed to the way the project is organised. Brown's biggest objection is to targeted research, especially the creation of centers to carry out specific research tasks.

Disaster waste management: A review article  

SciTech Connect

Depending on their nature and severity, disasters can create large volumes of debris and waste. The waste can overwhelm existing solid waste management facilities and impact on other emergency response and recovery activities. If poorly managed, the waste can have significant environmental and public health impacts and can affect the overall recovery process. This paper presents a system overview of disaster waste management based on existing literature. The main literature available to date comprises disaster waste management plans or guidelines and isolated case studies. There is ample discussion on technical management options such as temporary storage sites, recycling, disposal, etc.; however, there is little or no guidance on how these various management options are selected post-disaster. The literature does not specifically address the impact or appropriateness of existing legislation, organisational structures and funding mechanisms on disaster waste management programmes, nor does it satisfactorily cover the social impact of disaster waste management programmes. It is envisaged that the discussion presented in this paper, and the literature gaps identified, will form a basis for future comprehensive and cohesive research on disaster waste management. In turn, research will lead to better preparedness and response to disaster waste management problems.

DEMONSTRATION OF POTENTIAL FOR SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTION AND DIESEL PARTICULATE FILTERS  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

This project addresses the potential for Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) devices (using urea as reductant) together with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and low-pressure loop exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) to achieve future stringent emissions standards for heavy-duty engines powering Class 8 vehicles. Two emission control systems consisting of the three technologies (EGR, SCR, and DPF) were calibrated on a Caterpillar C-12 heavy-duty diesel engine. Results of these calibrations showed good promise in meeting the 2010 heavy-duty emission standards as set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). These two emission control systems were developed to evaluate a series of fuels that have similar formulations except for their sulfur content. Additionally, one fuel, code-named BP15, was also evaluated. This fuel was prepared by processing straight-run distillate stocks through a commercial, single stage hydrotreater employing high activity catalyst at maximum severity. An additional goal of this program is to provide data for an on-going EPA technology review that evaluates progress toward meeting 2007/2010 emission standards. These emissions levels were to be achieved not only on the transient test cycles but in other modes of operation such as the steady-state Euro-III style emission test known as the OICA (Organisation Internationale des Compagnies d'Automobiles) or the ESC (European Stationary Cycle). Additionally, hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions standards are to be met.

Evolutionary safety analysis: motivations from the air traffic management domain  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract. In order realistically and cost-effectively to realize the ATM (Air Traffic Management) 2000+ Strategy, systems from different suppliers will be interconnected to form a complete functional and operational environment, covering ground segments and aerospace. Industry will be involved as early as possible in the lifecycle of ATM projects. EURO-CONTROL manages the processes that involve the definition and validation of new ATM solutions using Industry capabilities (e.g., SMEs). In practice, safety analyses adapt and reuse system design models (produced by third parties). Technical, organisational and cost-related reasons often determine this choice, although design models are unfit for safety analysis. Design models provide limited support to safety analysis, because they are tailored for system designers. The definition of an adequate model and of an underlying methodology for its construction will be highly beneficial for whom is performing safety analyses. Limited budgets and resources, often, constrain or inhibit the model definition phase as an integral part of safety analysis. This paper is concerned with problems in modeling ATM systems for safety analysis. The main objective is to highlight a model specifically targeted to support evolutionary safety analysis. 1

Analysis of Cost Estimating Processes Used Within a Concurrent Engineering  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Concurrent engineering environments affect the cost estimating and engineering capability of an organisation. Cost estimating tools become outdated and need changing in order to reflect the new environment. This is essential, since cost estimating is the start of the cost management process and influences the `go', `no go' decisions concerning a new product development. This paper examines both traditional and more recent developments in order to highlight their advantages and limitations. The analysis includes parametric estimating, feature based costing, artificial intelligence, and cost management techniques. This study was deemed necessary because recent investigations carried out by Cranfield University highlighted that many concurrent engineering companies are not making efficient, wide spread use of existing estimating and cost management tools. In order to promote more efficient use of the discussed estimating processes within the twenty first century, this paper highlights the work of a leading European aerospace manufacturer and their efforts to develop a more seamless estimating environment. Furthermore, a matrix is developed that illustrates particular concurrent engineering environments to which each technique is aptly suited.
