Book review  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This book belongs to the series 'Perspectives in Nanotechnology' of CRC Press. It is a scientific encyclopedic monograph and, at the same time, a practical guide on two overlapping, closely related, very promising, recently emerging and rapidly developing areas of science and technology: medical nanotechnology consisting of a variety of nanoscale technologies applied to medicine and biomedical engineering, and nanomedicine being a newly emerging area of medicine which was created on the basis of the achievements of the research of molecular processes at the cellular level. The book consists of three parts. Part I with the title 'Perspectives' has three short chapters. In chapter 1 the author presents the scientific basis of medical nanotechnology and nanomedicine and discusses their societal implications. The main content of chapter 2 is the brief history of nanomedicine and the milestones of medical nanotechnology. The research initiatives, important publications, organizations, scientific meetings on medical nanotechnology and nanomedicine are listed in chapter 3. Part II with the title 'Beginning of Medical Nanotechnology' can be considered as a comprehensive presentation of the status quo of the successfully performed applications of nanotechnology in medicine and biomedical engineering. It consists of six chapters. In chapter 4 the author presents the impacts of nanotechnology on medicine, the natural evolution from physics, chemistry and bioscience to nanomedicine and the architecture of medical nanotechnology and nanomedicine. The other five chapters of part II are five encyclopedic bibliographical reviews on the advances in five main topics of medical nanotechnology and nanomedicine. In chapter 5 'Medication: Nanoparticles for Imaging and Drug Delivery', after introducing general requirements for the use of nanoparticles, the author presents a review on nanoparticles for x-ray and tomography imaging as well as for the enhancement of magnetic resonance imaging, nanodots for quantum resonance effects, nanoparticles for enhancing IR, visible, UV, ultrasound and optoacoustic imaging, for targeted imaging and energy delivery, such as photothermal and photodynamic therapy. A major part of this chapter is a review on nanoparticles for drug delivery either by direct application of nanoparticles in therapy or by targeted drug delivery. Different examples of cellular nanomachinery targeted by nanodrug are presented. The materials for fabricating drug delivery nanosystems are reviewed: nanocrystal, albumin-based particles, colloids, emulsions, gels, nanodiamonds, fibers, nanotubes, dendrimer, polymer-based particles, polymer-conjugates, polymeric micelles, liposomes, nanocapsules, etc. The therapeutic applications of nanoparticles are also presented with the attention on cancer therapy. The content of chapter 6 'Intervention: Nanotechnology in Reconstructive Intervention and Surgery' is the presentation on the nanoengineered materials in surgical and restorative applications, the use of endoscopic microelectromechanical systems (MEMs) for bridging the gap between drugs and surgery, and robotic technology in surgery. Chapter 7 'Regeneration: Nanomaterials for Tissue Regeneration' is a review on the application of nanotechnology in tissue regeneration. After presenting on the biomaterials for tissue regeneration, the author reviews the application of nanotechnology in tissue engineering, bioactive scaffold-guided tissue regeneration, cellular signaling, cell transplants, stem cell-based therapies and tissue engineering, and nanoencapsulation of cells and tissues. The following topics are then reviewed: nanomaterials for nerve regeneration by means of tissue engineering, nanoengineered materials for brain regeneration, nanoengineered scaffolding with cells for central nervous system regeneration, and new developments in cell therapy accelerated by nanoscience and nanotechnology. Chapter 8 with the title 'Restoration: Nanotechnology in Tissue Replacements and Prosthetics' is a review on the materials which have been used for im

Chapter 2 - MATLAB Tutorial  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The primary goal of this chapter is to help you to become familiar with the MATLAB software, a powerful tool. It is particularly important to familiarize yourself with the user interface and some basic functionality of MATLAB. To this end, it is worthwhile to at least work through the examples in this chapter (actually type them in and see what happens). Of course, it is even more useful to experiment with the principles discussed in this chapter instead of just sticking to the examples. The chapter is set up in such a way that it affords you time to do this.

Chapter 2 - Web Server Hacking  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter covers the fundamental process of hacking a web server by using several seminal network hacking tools. It is critical to understand what each of these tools is trying to accomplish and how to effectively use it yourself. The process is very structured with port scanning with Nmap, vulnerability scanning with Nesssus and Nikto, exploitation with Metasploit, and maintaining access (persistence) with Netcat. It introduces an easy-to-follow process for using each of these tools at the appropriate time with the appropriate technique to ensure high-quality results. This tool-driven approach is the same type of thinking that is used throughout the book on other targets such as the web application and web users.

Methods in environmental toxicology (Chapter 20). Book chapter  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

By expanding the number of species tested in assessing the toxicology of a chemical one is able to gain considerable insight into its mechanism of action, biodegradability, organ specific toxicity, and acute and potential chronic effects. The expansion of comparative toxicology from reliance on laboratory mammals to the inclusion of feral mammals, fish, birds, and some invertebrates is highly desirable in order to better understand the range of responses to a chemical in its interactions with the various target systems possible in different animals. With the inclusion of additional species in toxicity testing has come the need for the development of protocols to standardize approaches for the use of such new species.

The purpose of this document is to present relevant statistical data in the form of tables and graphs. Each of the major transportation modes is treated in separate chapters or sections. Chapter 1 compares US transportation data with data from other countries. Aggregate energy use and energy supply data for all modes are presented in Chapter 2. The highway mode, which accounts for over three-fourths of total transportation energy consumption, is dealt with in Chapter 3. Topics in this chapter include automobiles, trucks, buses, fleet vehicles, federal standards, fuel economies, and high-occupancy vehicle lane data. Household travel behavior characteristics are displayed in Chapter 4. Chapter 5 contains information on alternative fuels and alternatively-fueled vehicles. Chapter 6 covers the major nonhighway modes: air, water, and rail. The last chapter, Chapter 7, presents data environmental issues relating to transportation.

Chapter 4 Drilling Engineering  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Drilling operations are essentially carried out during all stages of the project life cycle (PLC) and in all types of environments. The main objectives of these operations includes: the acquisition of information and the safeguarding of production. Since the expenditure for drilling represents a large fraction of the total project's capital expenditure, an understanding of the techniques, equipment, and cost of drilling is very significant. This chapter focuses on the drilling activities. The chapter also explores the interactions between the drilling team and the other exploration and production (E&P) functions. Specifically, an initial successful exploration well can establish the presence of a working petroleum system. Following this, the data gathered in the first well is evaluated and the results are documented. The next step includes the appraisal of the accumulation requiring more wells. Finally, if the project is subsequently moved forward, development wells then needs to be engineered.

Chapter 3 Property Law  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This chapter examines the economics of property rights and property law. It shows how the economics of property rights can be used to understand fundamental features of property law and related extra-legal institutions. The chapter examines both the rationale for legal doctrine, and the effects of legal doctrine regarding the exercise, enforcement, and transfer of rights. It also examines various property rights regimes including open access, private ownership, common property, and state property. The guiding questions are: How are property rights established? What explains the variation in the types of property rights? What governs the use and transfer of rights? And, how are property rights enforced? In answering these questions we argue that property rights and property law can be best understood as a system of societal rules designed to maximize social wealth. They do this by creating incentives for people to maintain and invest in assets, which leads to specialization and trade.

Chapter 5 - Gasification Processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary There is a broad range of reactor types that are used in the practical realization of the gasification process. For most purposes, these reactor types can be grouped into one of three categories: moving-bed gasifiers, fluid-bed gasifiers, and entrained-flow gasifiers. Moving-bed processes are the oldest processes, and two processes in particular, the producer gas process and the water gas process, have played an important role in the production of synthesis gas from coal and coke. In moving bed processes, there are the sasol-lurgi dry bottom process, British Gas/Lurgi (BGL) slagging gasifier, that are detailed in the chapter along with their applications. Following this, fluid-bed processes are discussed in which the blast has two functions: that of blast as a reactant and that of the fluidizing medium for the bed. The best known fluid-bed gasifiers that have no tar problem are regenerators of catalytic cracking units that often operate under reducing, that is, gasification conditions that can be found in many refineries. HRL process, BHEL gasifier, circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) processes, the KBR transport gasifier, agglomerating fluid-bed processes, the Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (PWR) gasifier, the GEE gasification process, the Shell Gasification Process (SGP), Lurgi s Multi-Purpose Gasification process (MPG), etc. are the various processes discussed in the chapter.

Chapter 1 - How To Hack  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary The aim of this chapter is to introduce the topic of hacking and teach skills that will be useful for breaking into computers. There are some legitimate reasons for hacking. These can be security testing, consumer advocacy and civil rights, military interests, and hacking politics. This chapter introduces the techniques used to hack. Hacking basically means bypassing security measures on computer systems and networks. The word hack can also be used to describe a clever or quick program. There are certain laws that govern how security works. This chapter briefly introduces these laws and how they can be applied to hacking techniques. It also introduces various types of attacks and how serious the potential damage is, and provides examples of each type; the various methodologies that one might employ to discover security problems. Various hacking technique includediffingwhich is comparing code before and after some action has taken place, cryptography and the various means that exist for keeping information hidden or private, sniffing or monitoring of network communications for hacking purposes. This chapter introduces such techniques, security problems, tunneling mechanisms, viruses, and reporting security problems.

Chapter 14 - Glass Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Glass has established itself as an essential material in our lives. The composition of glass depends on what it is used for, but the majority of glass in circulation is of the soda-limesilicate type. It is a material that is eminently recyclable, in the sense that it merely needs to be remelted and reformed to produce another glass article. However, glass must be color-sorted and processed to remove contaminants to ensure it is compatible with the product being manufactured. The key benefit of recycling via remelting is the reduced energy demand. However, because differences in color composition can arise between recovered glass and manufacturing output, alternative outlets are also often necessary. This chapter examines both the recycling of glass back into glass manufacture and these alternatives.

Chapter 11 - Computer Network Defense  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Computer Network Defense is the defensive and largely proactive component of Computer Network Operations, and is one of the few places where military and civilian approaches are similar. But how does Computer Network Defense fit into the category of defensive actions? To answer this question, one must understand what is being defended. This chapter explains what type of information should be protected from cyber attacks and highlights the key principles of securitynamely, the CIA triad of confidentiality, integrity, and availability, and AAA which covers authentication, authorization, and auditing. Of course, no attempt at defending information assets is complete if users security mindset is weak, so this chapter also discusses security awareness and the types of training available today, along with strategies for defending against attacks, such as surveillance tactics, data mining, pattern matching, intrusion detection and prevention, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, disaster recovery planning, and defense in depth.

Chapter 6 - Offshore Structural Analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the primary considerations that the design engineer should bear in mind during the initial design and subsequent structural analysis. The designer is faced with a large number of rules, codes, standards, and specifications describing the general policy for structural systems and the detailed design of structural components, which includes government requirements, certification/classification authorities, and other technical documents. The notation Structures refers to all types of marine units ranging from floating ship-shaped vessels to bottom founded platforms. Emphasis has been placed on ship-shaped structures. Consideration is also given to column-supported structures, e.g., semi-submersibles, tension leg platforms, spars, and mooring buoys, etc., and also to steel bottom founded offshore structures, such as fixed steel jackets. The main output of the planning process is a Design Basis, describing the criteria and a Design Brief, describing the procedure to be followed and software to be used. This chapter discusses the finite element method, which is a powerful computational tool that has been widely used in the design of complex marine structures over the decades. This chapter gives a general overview for the design of marine structures using a finite element modeling technique. It also addresses structural modeling defined by industry codes for fixed platforms and floating production installations. Throughout this chapter, emphasis is placed on the design process where the finite element analysis will be employed.

Chapter 4 Scouring  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents a purifying treatment of textiles to reduce the amount of natural impurities sufficiently to enable level and reproducible dyeings and finishing to be produced. Specialty chemicals have very high value in the chemical processing of textiles and the applications of chemical auxiliaries are included in the relevant processes. Scouring is a purifying treatment of textiles. The objective of scouring is to reduce the amount of impurities sufficiently to obtain level and reproducible results in dyeing and finishing operations. Scouring agents can be generally classified into different groups. The appropriate type of scouring agent generally depends on the kind of fiber; fabric typethat is, woven or knitted, thick or thin; texturised or non-texturised and the extent of impurities present in the fibre. The selection of alkali is most important as free alkali can have a deleterious effect on certain fibersfor example, wool and silk are dissolved by alkali, whereas acetate and triacetate are converted back to their original cellulose form and cotton fiber absorbs alkali. Alkali neutralizes the carboxyl group in cellulose and in pectin. The hydroxyl groups on the glucose units in cellulose are also weakly acidic.

Chapter 9 - Hydraulic Pumps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter provides an overview of hydraulic-powered downhole pumps, which are powered by a stream of high pressure power fluid supplied by a power fluid (PF) pump at the surface and sent to a downhole pump or pump engine. Hydraulic pumps are basically of two typespiston downhole pumps that are similar to beam down-hole pumps, and jet downhole pumps that reduce the pressure on the formation by high-speed power fluid flow through the throat of a venturi or jet pump nozzle-diffuser combination. Hydraulic pumps can be used to remove liquids from gas wells. A skid-mounted hydraulic pump can be used to kick off a gas well and then be moved to another well for testing, production, or longer term de-watering. Hydraulic pumping is generally not depth limited, and deviated or crooked wells do not present problems. Hydraulic reciprocating pumps can produce a low bottomhole pressure. A jet pump may require a fluid height over the pump of 20% of submergence. A jet pump is more trouble-free than a reciprocating hydraulic pump and can tolerate some solids in the production. Fairly high rates of more than several hundred bbls/day are possible. In general, hydraulic systems are not rate limited when removing liquids from gas wells.

Chapter 9 - Hydraulic pumping  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary The hydraulic pumping system takes liquid (water or oil) from a liquid reservoir on the surface, puts it through a reciprocating multiplex piston pump or horizontal electrical submersible pump to increase the pressure, and then injects the pressurized liquid (power fluid) down-hole through a tubing string. At the bottom of the injection tubing string, the power fluid is directed into the nozzle of a jet pump or to the hydraulic engine of a piston pump, both of which have been set well below the producing fluid level. The surface injection pressures normally range from approximately 2000 psi up to 4000 psi, with some going up to but rarely above 4500 psi. An electric motor, diesel engine, or gas engine is used to drive the multiplex pump. The fundamental operating principle of subsurface hydraulic pumps is Pascal's Law, postulated by Blaise Pascal in 1653. This principle makes it possible to transmit pressure from the surface by means of a liquid-filled tubing string to any given point below the surface. The chapter further highlights applications to dewatering wells-gas and coal bed methane, limitations of other forms of lift, advantages of hydraulic pumping, disadvantages of hydraulic pumping, and different types of operating systems.

Chapter 6 - Compression  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Compression is crucial to all gas well production as it is the primary means to transport gas to market. Compression is also vital to deliquification, lowering wellhead pressure, and increasing gas velocity. The lower bottom hole producing pressure from deliquifying wells and lowering surface pressures with compression can result in substantial production and reserves increases. Compressing associated gas in oil wells is often seen as a simple rate acceleration project that seldom has good economics. Compression and reduced surface pressure is usually the first tool used in the life of a gas well to keep it deliquified and sometimes the only artificial lift method used, but compression can also be used to increase the effectiveness of other artificial lift deliquification methods including foamers, gas lift, beam pumping, ESPs, and velocity strings. There are many different types of compressors, each of which has its own operating ranges, efficiencies, strengths, and weaknesses. A majority of the applications for gas well deliquification involve the use of reciprocating or screw compressors. In addition, the study discusses compression horsepower and critical velocity; compression horsepower is related to the ratio of the discharge and suction pressures in psia commonly known as the compression ratio. Along with this, the effect of permeability on compression, pressure drop in compression suction, downstream gathering, and compression's effect on uplift from deliquifying individual gas wells are briefly discussed in this chapter.

Chapter 20: Graphite  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Graphite is truly a unique material. Its structure, from the nano- to the millimeter scale give it remarkable properties that lead to numerous and diverse applications. Graphite bond anisotropy, with strong in-plane covalent bonds and weak van der Waals type bonding between the planes, gives graphite its unique combination of properties. Easy shear of the crystal, facilitated by weak interplaner bonds allows graphite to be used as a dry lubricant, and is responsible for the substances name! The word graphite is derived from the Greek to write because of graphites ability to mark writing surfaces. Moreover, synthetic graphite contains within its structure, porosity spanning many orders of magnitude in size. The thermal closure of these pores profoundly affects the properties for example, graphite strength increases with temperature to temperatures in excess of 2200 C. Consequently, graphite is utilized in many high temperature applications. The basic physical properties of graphite are reviewed here. Graphite applications include metallurgical; (aluminum and steel production), single crystal silicon production, and metal casting; electrical (motor brushes and commutators); mechanical (seals, bearings and bushings); and nuclear applications, (see Chapter 91, Nuclear Graphite). Here we discuss the structure, manufacture, properties, and applications of Graphite.

Chapter Eleven - Safety Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter begins by discussing basic protection concepts related to design, and it considers the development of a hazard tree for an upstream oil and gas facility. The chapter then builds upon the hazard tree to develop a safe process by incorporating findings from a hazards analysis such as a failure mode effect analysis (FMEA) or \\{HAZards\\} \\{OPerability\\} study (HAZOPs). The chapter describes the effects of hydrocarbon releases and how safety devices prevent major accidents from occurring. It further discusses the requirements of API RP 14C, which is a modified FEMA. API RP 14C requires a minimum of two independent layers of protection. This is accomplished through the use of a surface safety system and an emergency support system. The elements of a process safety management system are discussed in detail. The chapter ends by covering all aspects of relief devices and then incorporating them into a relief, vent, or flare system.

Descriptive basis for a model of soils biogeochemistry (Chapter 12). Book chapter  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A model of biogeochemical processes for use in simulating greenhouse gas production and consumption is described. The model uses kinetic equations to describe a vertically distributed soil column that is characterized physically by soil properties. Transport processes move soluble and gaseous components in the soil column, including loss of gaseous components at the soil-atmosphere interface. Biogeochemical reactions are described beginning with hydrolysis of fresh, decomposable biopolymeric material to more resistant biopolymers and to monomers. Oxidative processes remove monomers and produce by-products including greenhouse gases. These processes include aerobic decomposition in aerobic zones and denitrification and germentation in anaerobic zones. Initial testing of the model for its general behavior indicates that this approach holds promise as a component of earth system models for simulating biogeochemical cycling.

Chapter 12 - Geothermal Energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses where the earth's thermal energy is sufficiently concentrated for economic use, the various types of geothermal systems, the production and utilization of the resource, and the environmental benefits and costs of geothermal production. Earth scientists quantify the energy and temperature in the earth in terms of heat flow and temperature gradient. The heat of the earth is derived from two components: the heat generated by the formation of the earth, and heat generated by radioactive decay of elements in the upper parts of the earth. The word geothermal comes from the combination of the Greek words go, meaning earth, and thrm, meaning heat. Geothermal resources are concentrations of the earth's heat, or geothermal energy, that can be extracted and used economically now or in the reasonable future. The earth contains an immense amount of heat but the heat generally is too diffuse or deep for economic use. Hence, the search for geothermal resources focuses on those areas of the earth's crust where geological processes have raised temperatures near enough to the surface that the heat contained can be utilized. Currently, only concentrations of heat associated with water in permeable rocks can be exploited economically. These systems are known as hydrothermal geothermal systems. All commercial geothermal production is currently restricted to geothermal systems that are sufficiently hot for the use and that contain a reservoir with sufficient available water and productivity for economic development. Geothermal energy is one of the cleaner forms of energy now available in commercial quantities. Use of geothermal energy avoids the problems of acid rain and greatly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of air pollution.

CHAPTER XI - THE CHILTERN CROSSES  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the Chiltern Crosses. So far, no evidence has been forthcoming to vouch for the origin of the interesting enigmas known as Whiteleaf Cross and Bledlow Cross. At present, all that can be said with certainty is that an illustration of Whiteleaf Cross accompanied its description in a book, dated 1742, by Francis Wise, Radcliffe Librarian, entitled Further Observations upon the White Horse and other Antiquities in Berkshire. In 1742, he regarded Whiteleaf Cross as an antiquity and made no mention of Bledlow Cross although he refers to a Danish camp at Bledlow. The dating and origin of the Crosses have been discussed by the late Sir Lindsay Scott in Antiquity, where he suggests that Whiteleaf Cross, in regard to 16th or 17th century undergraduate activities in turf-cutting near Cambridge, might be the work of the brighter youth of the two Risboroughs, in perhaps the 17th century A.D. And still he's in the self-same place Where, at his setting out, he was. Samuel Butler

Chapter 3 - Solar Energy Collectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Chapter 3 gives a review of solar collectors which are the main components of any solar system. The review includes various types of stationary and sun-tracking collectors. The stationary collectors include flat-plate collectors (FPCs), under which glazing materials, collector absorbing plates, and collector construction are presented; compound parabolic collectors (CPCs) and evacuated tube collectors (ETCs). The sun-tracking concentrating collectors section cover parabolic trough collectors (PTCs), which include parabola construction and tracking mechanisms; Fresnel collectors; parabolic dish reflector and heliostat field collector. This review is followed by the optical and thermal analysis of both \\{FPCs\\} and concentrating collectors. The analysis for \\{FPCs\\} includes both water and air type systems whereas the analysis for concentrating collectors includes the CPC and the PTC. The analysis of flat-plate water collectors starts with an analysis of the absorbed solar radiation followed by collector energy losses, temperature distribution between the tubes, collector efficiency factor, heat removal factor, flow factor, and thermal efficiency. This is followed by practical considerations concerning FPCs. Subsequently, concentrating collectors are considered which include optical and thermal analysis of a CPC and optical and thermal analysis of PTCs. The chapter includes also the second law analysis of solar thermal systems and includes minimum entropy generation rate, optimum collector temperature, and non-isothermal collector analysis.

Chapter Seven - Dehydration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter begins by discussing the major reasons for removing water from natural gas. The two most common methods for removing water from the gas are adsorption (solid desiccant) and absorption (liquid desiccant such as glycol). A third method, refrigeration (cooling the gas), employs cooling to condense the water molecules to the liquid phase, with subsequent injection of an inhibiter to prevent hydrate formation. The chapter details the design of the adsorption and absorption processes. It also considers the design and selection of equipment for each process, and it ends with an example of sizing equipment for a glycol dehydration system and a solid-bed desiccant unit.

This chapter points out some important safety aspects of the nuclear industry. Beginning with the current laws and regulations of nuclear safety, this chapter reviews different types of nuclear reactors, nuclear waste treatment systems, reliability of nuclear system, operations of reactors, incident reporting, and a short review of previous accident history. Finally, historical Rasmussen reports are reviewed.

Despite remarkable growth in the number of minivans and sport-utility vehicles, passenger cars continued to predominate in the residential vehicle fleet. This chapter looks at changes in the composition of the residential fleet in 1994 compared with earlier years and reviews the effect of technological changes on fuel efficiency (how efficiently a vehicle engine processes motor fuel) and fuel economy (how far a vehicle travels on a given amount of fuel). Using data unique to the Residential Transportation Energy Consumption Survey, it also explores the relationship between residential vehicle use and family income.

Chapter 14 - Ethics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The SarbanesOxley Act of 2002 specifies that corporations must publish a code of ethics for their senior officers, or disclose their reason for not having one. As in business, ethics are important in cyber warfare too. However, cyber operations do not have all of the same attributes that traditional warfare does. Therefore, when considering activities that might be classified as cyber warfare, it is important to realize that things that are clear in conventional warfaredetermining whether an attack is taking place, who is attacking, who is being attacked, and consequences of an attackmay not be as they seem. With this in mind, this chapter covers ethics surrounding cyber warfare. Besides discussing the potential for cyber attacks to be misattributed, the chapter covers secrecy in attacks, noncombatant immunity, use of force, mistaking a technical problem for an attack, intent behind an attack, and collateral damage resulting from an attack.

Chapter 18 - Tanks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter describes the tank's vapor formation rate. When sizing the vapor piping for a manifold expansion roof tank system, the rate of vapor formation must be known. While the rate of vapor formation can be computed by longhand methods, the calculation is tedious and takes much valuable time. The chapter also explains the hand-held calculator program that simplifies dike computations. Earthen dikes are widely used all over the world to contain flammable volumes of above-ground storage. They perform two vital functions: to prevent loss of fluid into the environment and to reduce the likelihood of fire spreading from one tank to another. Sizing dikes by conventional methods is a time-consuming, trial-and-error process. A complete assessment of the problem involves: applicable codes and regulations; land area available; topography of the area; soil characteristics; and the stipulated volume contained by dike and other dimensions of the dike section.

Abstract Chapter 4 introduces enzymes, which collectively represent a highly influential special class of receptors, and which comprise several major classes of protein drug targets. Mechanisms that account for the catalytic action of enzymes are extensively covered, together with the detailed mechanisms of action of key coenzymes, including pyridoxal 5?-phosphate, tetrahydrofolate, pyridine nucleotides, flavin, heme, and ATP. Enzymes used in drug synthesis and those that can serve as therapeutic agents, rather than as drug targets, also are discussed.

Chapter 5 - Properties of Enzymes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract: This chapter provides broad coverage on enzyme properties, describing the characteristics and activities therein. The reasons for the unidirectional nature of enzyme-catalyzed reactions is outlined. Nomenclature is discussed with the aim of students being able to identify the enzyme activity type, based on name. Methods of control of enzyme activity, including induction of gene expression; noncovalent enzyme-substrate interactions; feedback inhibition; reversible covalent modification; control proteins; and proteolytic activation are characterized and discussed. The impact of phosphorylation is described. Overview Most enzymes are proteins. Enzymes are used to diagnose and treat disease. Some enzymes require coenzymes. Allosteric interactions can either facilitate or inhibit enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Phosphorylation of an enzyme may either increase or decrease its activity. Proteolytic enzymes in the lumen of the digestive tract are activated irreversibly. Synthetases stimulate synthesis using ATP.

Chapter XII Stochastic Searching  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Research has produced automatic methods of establishing lists and patterns of keywords through statistical procedures performed by data processing machines on the original text of documents. This chapter discusses some of the developments, in this connection that constitute the current state of the art. To document the usage of stochastic processes and data sampling concepts in information retrieval, it suffices to consider that, in the real world, too, communication of data by way of words is largely carried out on a probabilistic basis. In talking or writing, man speculates that, by using certain words, he or she will be able to produce, in the mind of the receptor, a picture of the concept or datum he or she wishes to convey. This datum may be a transmittal from somebody else or it may be a newly originated document that resulted from an actual experience or a process of thought. The chapter evaluates stochastic searching and provides machine records and the upkeep of a dictionary. The sophistication of the document and the over-all effort has been discussed in the chapter.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Textiles are nearly 100% recyclable, yet for a variety of reasons many textiles end up in the landfill. In recent years, special attention to value-added products made from recycled textile materials is on the rise as consumers, policy makers, engineers and industry experts focus on environmental stewardship, strategic partnerships and holistic approaches that contribute significantly to the recycling process. This chapter describes the recycling process and the various categories that are considered as recycling companies manage the plethora of textiles that enter the recycling stream. By recycling textiles, the punitive costs of landfill are avoided. In addition, the recycling process contributes significantly to employment, charitable contributions and positive environmental impact.

Chapter 9 - Brake Testing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter describes and explains the role and methods of experimental testing in the design and verification of brakes and their components. It starts by discussing the increasing capability of computer-based predictive techniques, which can simulate many aspects of brake operation and save time and cost compared with previous methods of experimental evaluation. Preparation, procedures, instrumentation, data acquisition and results analysis, interpretation and reporting for experimental testing ranging from whole vehicle braking performance on a test track to component performance and material thermophysical properties in the laboratory, are explained and discussed. By the end of the chapter the design and operation of test rigs including inertia dynamometers for full-size brakes, scale rigs for small-sample friction and wear measurement, machines for cyclic loading and material property measurement, etc. are described. The importance of careful preparation of the friction pair (bedding-in and burnishing) for brake performance testing and the evaluation of variability by repeat testing is emphasised.

Chapter 33 - Brain Embolism  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents a discussion on the clinical findings of the brain embolism and cerebrovascular disorders. Brain embolism occurs when material, usually a thrombus, formed or introduced in one part of the vascular system travels to an artery that supplies brain tissue. There are three main componentsthe recipient artery that receives the material, the embolic material itself, and the donor source where the material originated. Donor sources include the heart, the aorta, and the neck arteries and their intracranial arterial branches proximal to the recipient artery. The most common cardiac sources are atrial fibrillation and other atrial arrythmias, myocardial ischemic pathology, and valvular heart diseases. However, less common cardiac pathologies such as myocardiopathies, cardiac tumors, and septal defects within the heart can also lead to brain embolism. The most common disease of arteries that leads to embolism is atherosclerosis. Materials from plaques and thrombi form within arteries in the neck and proximal intracranial arteries and embolize distally. Occasionally tumor particles, fat, and air and foreign particles introduced into veins or arteries embolize to the brain. The discussion on diagnosis includes recipient artery-related finding and donor sources. The chapter discusses treatment of the acute event of brain embolism and states that the goals of treatment of the acute ischemic event are minimization of brain ischemic injury and reperfusion whenever possible.

Chapter 1. Overview of the DOE Project Chapter 1. Overview of the DOE Project Introduction On April 10, 1945, medical staff of the U.S. Manhattan Engineer District in Oak Ridge, TN, injected plutonium into the victim of a car accident. American scientists had only recently begun producing plutonium, and thousands of workers were laboring to produce the quantities required for the first atomic bombs. While aware that plutonium was hazardous, project officials were uncertain how much exposure would cause harm. Desire for information about human metabolism and retention of plutonium led to this first injection in Oak Ridge. Over the next 2 years, 17 other people also received plutonium injections. The Manhattan Project and its postwar successor, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), also carried out human experiments with uranium, polonium, americium, and other radioactive substances. Radiation tests continued after the war; some of these studies took place under AEC supervision and had direct defense-related applications. The agency also sponsored substantial programs in the medical applications of radiation and in basic biomedical research. In addition, independent physicians and researchers at universities and hospitals conducted many postwar human radiation studies to develop the techniques of present-day nuclear medicine.

Chapter 6 - Eastern Europe  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the library and information systems of four Eastern European countries. In a survey described in the chapter, four libraries in Eastern Europe returned the questionnaires on the role of national libraries in national and international information systems: (1) Bulgaria, (2) the Czech Socialist Republic, (3) Hungary, and (4) Poland. The USSR was regularly present at the meetings of the Conference and made contributions to the discussions but did not return replies to the questionnaires. As in the case of the British Library, answers were given to the questions from personal experience. A study of the Soviet Library system appeared in 1972 under the title Libraries, Documentation and Bibliography in the USSR, which, despite its inadequacies, is the only survey in English of the Russian library and information system as a whole. The influence of the Lenin Library as a library planning center is very strong throughout Eastern Europe, while the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance has strongly influenced the structure and services in the field of scientific and technical information.

Abstract Sustainability analysis plays a key strategic role in industry, and most chemical companies consider nowadays that sustainability is a strategic business success factor, realizing that what is good for the environment and society can be also good for the financial performance of the company. This chapter provides an overview of the available methods that can translate sustainability requirements into working targets. The most used interpretation of sustainable development is the three pillars dividing sustainability into economic growth, ecological balance, and social progress. Although there is no universal approach, there are several methods that can be used in the move towards a more sustainable development and design of chemical products and processes. In this context, several valuable tools are presented: the life cycle assessment, eco-costs value ratio, eco-efficiency analysis, socio-eco-efficiency analysis, and the \\{AIChE\\} sustainability index. The last section presents a procedure for incorporating sustainability metrics in a process design project.

CHAPTER XV - TIME SERIES  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter provides an overview of time series. A time series is a set of observations of a variable made at different points of time and arranged in chronological order, each observation representing the value of the variable either at a given moment or during the interval of time between this observation and the preceding one. In general, the observations forming a time-series as made at equidistant intervals of time are considered. The factors affecting time-series may be recurring or nonrecurring, or evolutionary, periodic, or random. The method of moving averages consists in determining the average value for a certain number of terms of a time series and taking this average as the trend normal value for the middle of the period covered in the calculation of the average, that is, the period extent of the moving average.

Chapter 3 - Offshore Platforms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Modern offshore crude oil and natural gas explorationthe search for likely environments where crude oil and natural gas may exist in the rock formations that are beneath the surface of the waterways of the world. In addition, offshore operations include transporting crude oil and natural gas from their point of production offshore to refineries and plants on land. Very little refining of the crude oil and natural gas is carried out on the production platform. This chapter focuses on exploration, drilling, and production of crude oil and natural gas and the wide range of technologies involved as well as the additional technologies that relate to a marine environment necessary for offshore activities.

Chapter 33 - Grand Challenges  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter looks to the future of air quality and how the lessons learned in recent decades can be applied to new problems. The challenges include finding ways to prevent emerging economies from repeating the air pollution mistakes and harm that developed nations have experienced in arriving at solutions to air pollution problems. Other challenges include: global problems, such as long-range transport of pollutants, climate change; real-world-exposures (including indoor air pollution); improvements in technologies to remove difficult-to-treat pollutants; and addressing the growing number of mobile sources. This will require more systems thinking and sustainable, transdisciplinary solutions. The legacy of the current cadre of air pollution experts must be one of translational science and the enhancement of early air pollution education for the next generation.

Chapter 9 - Pipeline Insulation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Oilfield pipelines are insulated mainly to conserve heat. The need to keep the product in the pipeline at a temperature higher than the ambient could exist for the following reasons: preventing the formation of gas hydrates, preventing the formation of wax or asphaltenes, enhancing the product flow properties, increasing the cooldown time after shutting down, and meeting other operational/process equipment requirements. On the other hand, in liquefied gas pipelines, such as LNG, insulation is required to maintain the cold temperature of the gas to keep it in a liquid state. This chapter describes the commonly used insulation materials, insulation finish on pipes, and general requirements for insulation of offshore and deepwater pipelines.

Chapter 7 - Copper Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter gives a brief overview of copper recycling from a metallurgist's view. As it is deemed impossible to give an in-depth presentation of such a broad and complex subject, a selection of references is given for further reading. Secondary sources of copper include a large variety of raw materials, ranging from slags, sludge and low-grade copper scrap, containing only a few percent Cu up to very high-grade copper as well as pure copper close to 100% Cu. Thus there are several options for recycling processes, within both primary and secondary plants. Although there are good recycling rates for copper, some challenges can be foreseen such as a scarcity of pure and high-grade scrap and an increased amount of products containing a mixture of materials and with low copper concentrations.

Chapter 27 - Nuclear weapons  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter faces the realization that the same atoms that can produce life-saving electricity can also be used to construct weapons of mass destruction. Some facilities, such as enrichment and reprocessing, in the nuclear fuel cycle can also serve dual uses when considering proliferation. The original atomic bombs were constructed of highly enriched uranium and high-grade plutonium, but their development led to thermonuclear devices with much larger yields. Thus far, nuclear war has been avoided by policies such as mutual assured destruction and international agreements such as the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is charged with performing worldwide nuclear material safeguards inspections. The legacy of the nuclear weapons arms race has left considerable weapons-grade materials that must be dealt with.

Chapter 15 - Measurement  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with the multiphase flow meter. The major parts of the TopFlow meter are the Venturi insert and the electrodes inside the Venturi throat. The flow rates of oil, water, and gas are calculated based on the measurements performed by the electrodes and the measurement of the differential pressure across the Venturi inlet. The TopFlow meter utilizes a capacitance sensor for oil-continuous liquid mixtures, where the capacitance caused by the dielectric constant of the fluid mixture is measured in the throat of the Venturi. Similarly, it utilizes a four-electrode conductance sensor for water-continuous liquid mixtures, where the conductance is caused by the conductivity of the fluid mixture. All the necessary electrodes are incorporated within a Venturi that is somewhat modified. Advanced data processing is utilized to have continuous readings of the flow rates of oil, water, and gas.

Chapter 11 - Sulfur Recovery  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Sulfur is present in many raw industrial gases and in natural gas in the form of hydrogen sulfide. Sulfur removal facilities are located at the majority of oil and gas processing facilities throughout the world. The sulfur recovery unit does not make a profit for the operator but it is an essential processing step to allow the overall facility to operate, as the discharge of sulfur compounds to the atmosphere is severely restricted by environmental regulations. Concentration levels of H2S vary significantly depending upon their source. H2S produced from absorption processes, such as amine treating of natural gas or refinery gas, can contain 5075% H2S by volume or higher. This chapter provides information about fundamentals of sulfur removal facilities in the natural gas industry.

Chapter 1 - Nanoscience and Nanotechnology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Assuming that the reader is relatively new to the area of carbon nanotube reinforced composites, this chapter aims to create a solid background in the topics of nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N). We start with an introduction to the nanoscale, from basic themes, such as the importance of size, and why the properties of materials change at the nanoscale. The concepts of N&N are presented from the starting point: the Feynmans lecture in 1959. The different types of nanotechnology are discussed. The history of nano shows us that nanotechnology was, somehow, already been used in the ancient world as demonstrated by great examples as the Lycurgus cup and stained glass windows. The nano world has inspired many applications that make use of the new features and phenomena observed at the nanoscale. We discuss some of the existing and envisioned applications in many areas, including medicine, food, electronics, energy, air pollution, space, and even sports. Finally, we take a look to the future and realize that although scientists are able to manipulate materials at the atomic scale, atom by atom, there is still much to be done, i.e., There is Plenty of Room at the Bottom!

1. Introduction 1. Introduction Chapter 1. Introduction Household Vehicles Energy Consumption 1994 reports on the results of the 1994 Residential Transportation Energy Consumption Survey (RTECS). The RTECS is a national sample survey that has been conducted every 3 years since 1985. For the 1994 survey, more than 3,000 households that own or use some 6,000 vehicles provided information to describe vehicle stock, vehicle-miles traveled, energy end-use consumption, and energy expenditures for personal vehicles. The survey results represent the characteristics of the 84.9 million households that used or had access to vehicles in 1994 nationwide. (An additional 12 million households neither owned nor had access to vehicles during the survey year.) To be included in the RTECS survey, vehicles must be either owned or used by household members on a regular basis for personal transportation, or owned by a company rather than a household, but kept at home, regularly available for the use of household members. Most vehicles included in the RTECS are classified as "light- duty vehicles" (weighing less than 8,500 pounds). However, the RTECS also includes a very small number of "other" vehicles, such as motor homes and larger trucks that are available for personal use.

Chapter 17 - Nuclear Fusion  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Nuclear fusion, the joining of light nuclei of hydrogen into heavier nuclei of helium, has potential environmental, safety and proliferation characteristics as an energy source, as well as adequate fuel to power civilization for times long compared to human history. It is, however, more challenging to convert to an energy source than nuclear fission. This chapter introduces the physics, advantages, difficulties, progress, economics and prospects for fusion energy power plants. Nuclear fusion is the process, in which light nuclei can release large amounts of energy if they combine, or fuse, into heavier nuclei. The principal nuclear reactions which have been considered for reactor concepts involve reactions of isotopes of the two lightest elements: hydrogen and helium. The fuel costs for fusion reactors will be negligible in comparison with the value of the electricity produced. It is difficult to precisely assess the cost of fusion-generated electricity until there is experience with an operating power plant, since the cost will be dependent upon the reliability and the frequency and expense of maintenance, both of which are likely to improve with the hindsight of experience. A fusion reactor does not directly emit CO2 or other greenhouse gases, or any combustion products that contribute to acid rain, and the indirect emissions due to factors like fuel gathering and transport, plant construction and maintenance, and activated parts storage would be small. Thus, fusion power would not have appreciable adverse effects upon global warming, atmospheric quality or acidification of the oceans, lakes and streams.

Chapter 2 - Energy Sources  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In todays industrialized world, energy became vital to all human activities including manufacturing, data processing, heating, cooling, lighting, transportation, food processing, etc., yet it is invisible for most of us. Todays energy generation technologies are undergoing a paradigm shift; the solution to our current dilemma requires more renewable contribution as well as the more efficient utilization of conventional energy sources. Recognizing this importance, this chapter focuses on energy sources and energy generation technologies including, coal, hydroelectric, nuclear, solar, wind, ocean, and several others. Alternative energy technologies received great interest in recent years due to environmental impact, greenhouse gas emissions, national energy security, and increasing cost of fossil fuel-based sources. With particular emphasis on renewable and alternative energy systems, characteristic features of the renewable energy sources have been reviewed. Since power electronics is a key enabling technology for renewable energy utilization, power electronic converters and interfaces that are used for grid interconnection and stand-alone operation have been presented.

Chapter 1 - LNG Fundamentals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Natural gas has remained the fastest growing energy resource in most regions of the world for more than two decades, driven by the low greenhouse gas emissions as well as high conversion efficiency in power generation. For almost a century, natural gas has been transported safely, reliably, and economically via pipeline. However, for the past decades it has become clear that significant quantities of new gas reserves are not so conveniently located. Attention has shifted to more isolated large gas reservoirs that were previously thought to be too remote, or technically too difficult and costly to develop. A number of solutions for exploiting stranded gas reserves are currently being developed and considered for commercialization. On the other hand, over the past three decades, only the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry has successfully brought many large remote gas fields to the gas markets that are unreachable by pipeline (e.g., Japan, South Korea). This chapter briefly summarizes the components of the LNG supply chainthe steps and industrial processes used in producing, storing, and delivering LNG to commercial and residential customers.

Chapter 10 - Dissecting Hacks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary It is essential that every Solaris administrator understand the risks posed to a Solaris system by errors in configuration as well as programming. Understanding Solaris' weaknesses as well as its strengths makes a Solaris system defending against easier hacking attempts. The chapter covers some of the more common hacks and exploits used against Solaris systems. These exploits include denial of service (DOS) attacks, either to bring the system down or simply make it unavailable for legitimate users, and buffer overflows to gain remote access or elevated privilegesusually root. Other attacks can include IP spoofing, MAC address spoofing, rootkits, connection hijacking, and logic bombs. With system and network administrators struggling to keep up with user requests and other demands, security is usually the first item to be dropped. Attackers rely on this fact. By understanding how exploits work under Solaris and how exploits affect the Solaris operating environment, the Solaris system administrator is better prepared to eliminate or mitigate the effects of these threats.

Chapter 3 - Substation Layouts  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Substations are the points in the power network, where transmission lines and distribution feeders are connected together through circuit breakers or switches via busbars and transformers. This allows for the control of power flows in the network and general switching operations for maintenance purposes. This chapter describes the principal substation layouts, the effects of advancements in substation equipment, the modular design, the compact substations, and the moves toward design and construction turnkey contract work. The descriptions concentrate on air insulated switchgear (AIS) outdoor open terminal designs at rated voltages of 72 kV and higher. In an ideal situation all circuits and substation equipment would be duplicated such that following a fault or during maintenance a connection remains available. This would involve very high cost. Methods have therefore been adopted to achieve a compromise between complete security of supply and capital investment. A measure of circuit duplication is adopted while recognizing that duplication may itself reduce the security of supply by, for example, providing additional leakage paths to earth.

Chapter 12 - Swimming Pools  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses water conservation opportunities for swimming pools. Swimming pool water is an expensive commodity given the fact that a large body of water needs to be continually pumped, treated, filtered and backwashed and then heated to temperatures. Councils, leisure and fitness centers, hotels and most motels all have swimming pools. In indoor pools the air needs to be ventilated. For this reason swimming pools consume two to three as much energy as an air-conditioned office building per square area. The typical average energy use in sports centers with pools and dry sports centers are shown. It becomes evident the energy consumption of swimming pools is two to three times per square meter. Twenty-five per cent of the energy is used to heat pools to maintain these temperatures and another 53% of energy is used for space heating in indoor pools. The typical breakdown of water usage in large public swimming pools which show, retrofitting showerheads and minimizing leakage will have a significant effect on reducing water use. Data indicates that 33% of the water usage can be reduced by instituting good management practices. Water conservation opportunities for swimming pools consist of: reducing leakage, installing water-efficient taps, showerheads and toilets, reducing backwash frequency and time and reducing pool evaporation.

Chapter 6 - Impersonation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the use of impersonation to conduct the email attacks. Impersonation means pretending to be someone that is known to the victim in one degree or another. The use of impersonation in a professional penetration test may appear to be a simple thingassume a disguise and play a role. For most pentest projects, this may be true. However, if one needs to avoid detection at all costs, impersonation becomes a much more complicated endeavor. To conduct an attack using pretexting, one need to make sure that the disguise is perfect and that the knowledge, language, understanding of geography, and understanding of human psychology is exceptional for the task at hand. If one doesn't want to go through the effort to create a physical disguise, one can choose to perform e-mail attacks using our spear phishing skills to gain information necessary to access the corporate systems of the target organization. The problem with the use of a phishing attack is that one cannot always be assured that they will have access to a server within the target corporation's network in which to conduct the attack.

Chapter 6 - Ecosystem Services  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Forested ecosystems have always provided a large suite of services that benefit human civilizations, animals, plants, and other organisms living within the Earths biosphere. As suggested in earlier chapters, forested ecosystems generate numerous provisioning, regulating, supporting, and cultural services. These services provide the basic building blocks of life on Earth and for human civilizations. Unfortunately, at times humans neither understand nor appreciate the regulating or supporting functions provided by ecosystems. Maintaining the health and well-being of our forested ecosystems can improve human health concerns and protect our homes from unexpected events such as floods and wildfires. Many also argue that healthy ecosystems are the foundation upon which we can build a secure future for our children and grandchildren. Managers of forests and natural resources will undoubtedly face trade-offs among ecosystem services when considering their actions. Even deciding to do nothing at all will involve the analysis of trade-offs, since some of the services provided by ecosystems include the food, shelter, and materials we may use in our normal, daily lives.

Chapter 5 - Technologies for Coal Utilization  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with the technologies for coal utilization. Coal use in the United States had been primarily for iron and steel production, locomotives for transportation, and household heat. In addition, many chemicals, including medicines, dyes, flavorings, ammonia, and explosives were produced from coal. Coal is used in the industrial sector for producing steam and to a lesser extent electricity, and some chemicals are produced from coal. The chapter explores the technologies used for generating power, heat, coke, and chemicals and includes combustion, carbonization, gasification, and liquefaction, which have been referred to as the four grand processes of coal utilization. Advances in materials of construction, system designs, and fuel firing have led to increasing capacity and higher steam operating temperatures and pressures. In the United States, utilities typically choose between two basic pulverized coal-fired watertube steam generators: subcritical drum-type boilers with nominal operating pressures of either 1900 or 2600 psig or once-through supercritical units operating at 3800 psig advances. The chapter concludes by emphasizing on coal combustion, as this technology is the single largest user of coal.

Chapter 1 Introduction  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter introduces refining. Catalytic processes form the majority of unit operations in the oil industry. Catalysis, therefore, becomes a significant factor in the economic viability and, nowadays, a strong factor in the environmental viability of the industry. Catalyst development and understanding is essential to the majority of refining and petrochemical advances. New technical improvements and breakthroughs depend on catalysis and are expected to come through a molecular-level understanding of the processes. The oil industry would need continued catalysis support to change its product portfolio with environment-friendly technologies. The market pattern for oil refining products is evolving and will continue to do so in the future. The trend is toward lighter and cleaner products. The demand for fuel oil and residuals is decreasing consistently, but the consumption of lighter fuels is increasing. In the long term, the residuals market would disappear. The resemblance of a refinery would then be closer to a chemical plant, rather than the landscape exhibited these days. In a contraposition, the market share of the heavy and extra heavy oils might have increased because of the decline of the light and median reserves. In fact, an increase on heavier feedstocks has already begun and will be a constant factor in the future. Introduction of new, non-oil derived fuels will impact the oil-derived market share. Also, if gasoline uses remains where it is or increases, the specifications are bound to be severe. Speciation, well known in biology, will be a fact in the fuel business.

The gasification of any carbonaceous or hydrocarbonaceous material is, essentially, the conversion of the carbon constituents by any one of a variety of chemical processes to produce combustible gases. The process includes a series of reaction steps that convert the feedstock into synthesis gas (syngas, carbon monoxide, CO, plus hydrogen, H2) and other gaseous products. This conversion is generally accomplished by introducing a gasifying agent (air, oxygen, and/or steam) into a reactor vessel containing the feedstock where the temperature, pressure, and flow pattern (moving bed, fluidized, or entrained bed) are controlled. The gaseous products other than carbon monoxide and hydrogen and the proportions of these product gases (such as carbon dioxide, CO2, methane, CH4, water vapor, H2O, hydrogen sulfide, H2S, and sulfur dioxide, SO2) depends on the: (1) type of feedstock, (2) the chemical composition of the feedstock, (3) the gasifying agent or gasifying medium, as well as (4) the thermodynamics and chemistry of the gasification reactions as controlled by the process operating parameters. In addition, the kinetic rates and extents of conversion for the several chemical reactions that are a part of the gasification process are variable and are typically functions of: (1) temperature, (2) pressure, and (3) reactor configuration, and (4) the gas composition of the product gases and whether or not these gases influence the outcome of the reaction. It is the purpose of this chapter to present descriptions of the various reactions involved in gasification of carbonaceous and hydrocarbonaceous feedstocks as well as the various thermodynamic aspects of these reactions which dictate the process parameters used to produce the various gases.

Chapter 4 - Low tech wireless hacking  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents the reader with a variety of attacks and countermeasures for wireless technologies in the home and office by applying a technical approach to low tech hacking. These attacks fall in five primary categories: denial of service and availability, backdoors and cracks, rogue exploits, default vulnerabilities, and attacks on specific security tools. Wireless is a broad topic, with a variety of implementations throughout the world and in every facet of life. Wireless ploys bestowed range from disrupting municipal Wi-Fi with an antenna attack to bypassing access control systems with simple spoofing attacks. In the great world of wireless hacking, there are even a few low tech hacks that can bypass very specific higher tech security mechanisms. Several ways of bypassing media access control (MAC) filtering, port security, and even some of the newer network access control (NAC)-based controls are also discussed. It does no good to hermetically seal the windows in an organization if the doors are left wide open. But that is precisely what many organizations are doing today when they neglect to secure their wireless communications systems. Organizations habitually overlook the security of their wireless communications because they cannot see it. If they cannot see it, then they presume that no one else can either, and it is safe. However, that presumption cannot be farther from the truth. This chapter is dedicated to thwarting wireless systems of all types, armed with everything from a bobby pin to a yagi antenna. The goal of this chapter is to enable readers to see wireless, by explaining how it works, describing different types of devices that share common mediums and functionality, and offering clear explanations of security vulnerabilities using real-world examples. The attacks included are part of the low tech hacking subgenre of wireless assaults.

Chapter 2 - Ethics and Experiments  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The pursuit of knowledge through social scientific research requires consideration of the many ways to protect the human dignity of study participants. This chapter reviews issues inherent in conducting ethical research, both generally and specifically with regard to experimental studies. To the extent that researchers remain mindful of these ethical concerns, they are more prepared to navigate the (federal) regulations pertaining to the protection of the rights and welfare of research subjects. The chapter concludes with suggestions on how to successfully meet the demands of institutional review boards, which oversee these regulations.

Chapter 7 - Hydrolysis in Near- and SupercriticalWater for Biomass Conversion andMaterial Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Supercritical water (SCW) has been investigated for about 20years for chemical reactions and processes. Water above its critical point (Tc=374C, pc=22.1MPa, ?c=0.322g/cm3) has remarkable tunable properties and has been at the origin of a number of major developments especially due to its environmental innocuousness. SCW has been extensively used in the last 15years to perform hydrolysis reactions. We propose to discuss in this book chapter the main fields of the application of the SCW hydrolysis reactions: (1) biomass liquefaction toward biofuels and platform molecules and (2) material recycling. SCW has been identified as an efficient medium in the transformation of biomass. Actually, Supercritical Biomass Valorization is a new generation of SCW-based technology, following the R&D development performed in SCW Oxidation. Two main routes can be investigated: the SuperCritical Biomass Gasification process and the SuperCritical Biomass Liquefaction process. Moreover, at present, the increase in the plant sourcing in the chemical industry is inescapable because of the social request for low environmental impact products and the high prices of products from fossil resources. In this context, biomass is particularly interesting because it is abundant and can be easily mobilized. Since lignocellulosic materials constitute approximately 95% of the total plant biomass, the discovery and the investigation of novel and effective pathways for their conversion are very important. In this chapter, we will present the direct SCW liquefaction of this new resource of carbon in order to produce two types of biobased products: 2G biofuels and platform molecules. In the context of a sustainable society, material recycling has an important role to play. Nowadays, the industry cannot produce consumer goods or industrial products without thinking about the future of each product in an environment and energetic point of view. Therefore in the field of environmentally friendly processes, a major challenge is the recycling of man-made materials. SCW has also been identified as an interesting medium for this aim. In this chapter, we will present two major aspects of material recycling using SCW: recycling of plastics and composite materials. We will see that hydrolysis reactions can be completed with alcoholysis reactions using near- and supercritical alcohols.

Chapter 4 - Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this chapter, hydrogen and fuel cell systems are introduced. Hydrogen is closely related to fuel cells because fuel cells are very efficient devices for power generation which when supplied with hydrogen generate non-polluting effluents, mainly water or steam. A hydrogen economy is necessary in the context of continuous growth of population and per-capita energy consumption. In this context, renewable energy solutionsespecially solarbecome more important and their harvesting requires hydrogen as energy carrier. Therefore the role of hydrogen and fuel cell systems in power generation becomes very important. As detailed in the chapter, these systems are useful for converting the fluctuating and intermittent energy of renewable sources and providing power on demand. Hydrogen and fuel cell systems can work either as grid-connected or as independent power generators. Connection to the grid allows for better load leveling and major savings as well as for reduction of pollution associated with power generation. Hydrogen can also be used to power residences and to cogenerate heat or other commodities. In addition, hydrogen and fuel cell technologies are much required for the transportation sector, where they can contribute to pollution and cost reduction and increased efficiency. Hydrogen production methods are reviewed in this chapter with a focus on electrolysis and thermochemical cycles. These systems appear to be leading technologies for the future. Other revised hydrogen production methods are gasification and reforming, which are very relevant for biomass conversion into hydrogen. Photochemical and photo-biochemical hydrogen production methods are also discussed. All types of fuel cells are introduced; these include alkaline, proton-exchange-membrane, phosphoric acid, molten carbonate, solid oxide, direct methanol, and direct ammonia fuel cells. Construction and specific application for power generation are presented for each type. The modeling and optimization aspects of fuel cells and their systems are explained. Several power generation systems with fuel cells are discussed, in which each type of fuel cells has specific system requirements. The overall system must include various types of separators, pumps, and compressors depending on the case. In aqueous systems water must be recycled, e.g., in the case of proton-exchange membrane fuel cells water must be actually fed in excess so that the membrane is wetted. Also for a direct methanol fuel cell water must be recovered and recycled. In molten carbonate fuel cell systems carbon dioxide must be recovered and recycled. In solid oxide fuel cell systems, the fuel must be supplied in excess and is not completely consumed; therefore it is important to couple these systems with gas turbines.

Chapter 8 - Seafood  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Global total production of fish, mollusks and crustaceans has been continuously increasing from the beginning of the century, and at the same time, seafood is continuously being associated with a number of foodborne outbreaks. Food safety challenges differ by region, due to differences in income level, diets, local conditions, and government infrastructures. Important biological causative agents of seafood-borne illnesses in the last decade have been histamine, caliciviruses, marine biotoxins and Vibrio spp. The contamination of seafood by environmental and aquaculture chemicals has also been a public health concern. The hazards are differently assessed in the primary production (aquaculture) and in the seafood processing industry, where the level of risk additionally depends on a type of product. For protection of public health and ensuring safety of food entering the food chain, food safety principles should be efficiently applied by all parties in the food chain. Food safety regulation should be harmonized over the world with the aim of easier and undisrupted international trade of goods.

Chapter 3 - The First Law of Thermodynamics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This chapter briefly reviews the history of some of the key experiments and ideas that led to the development of the first law of thermodynamics. Then the first law is presented and some of its implications discussed. At this time several new variables are introduced: internal energy (E), which is a state function; work (w) and heat (q), which are path-dependent functions; enthalpy (H), which is a state function; and the constant-pressure and constant-volume heat capacities (CP and CV). Pressure-volume work, indicator diagrams, and the concept of reversibility are described. Then the first law is applied to reversible processes involving ideal gases (e.g., isothermal, isobaric, isochoric, and adiabatic changes of state). The different amounts of work done by reversible and irreversible processes are described. The thermal structure of convective regions of planetary atmospheres is described and the dry (i.e., cloud-free) adiabatic lapse rate is derived. The chapter closes with a discussion of other types of work (e.g., chemical, electrochemical, gravitational, magnetic, and mechanical).

Chapter 12 - Nonparametric Tests  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Most of the tests that we have learned up to this point are based on the assumption that the sample(s) came from a normal population, or at the least that the population probability distribution(s) is specified except for a set of free parameters. Such tests are called parametric tests. In general, a parametric test is known to be generally more powerful than other procedures when the underlying assumptions are met. Usually the assumption of normality or any other distributional assumption about the population is hard to verify, especially when the sample sizes are small or the data are measured on an ordinal scale such as the letter grades of a student, in which case we do not have a precise measurement. For example, incidence rates of rare diseases, data from gene-expression microarrays, and the number of car accidents in a given time interval are not normally distributed. Nonparametric tests are tests that do not make such distributional assumptions, particularly the usual assumption of normality. In situations where a distributional model for a set of data is unavailable, nonparametric tests are ideal. Even if the data are distributed normally, nonparametric methods are frequently almost as powerful as parametric methods. These tests involve only order relationships among observations and are based on ranks of the variables and analyzing the ranks instead of the original values. Distribution-free tests generally do make some weak assumptions, such as equality of population variances and/or the distribution, and are of the continuous type.

Chapter 21 - Hydroelectric Power  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Hydroelectric power (hydropower) is a renewable energy source where electrical power is derived from the energy of water moving from higher to lower elevations. It is a proven, mature, predictable and price competitive technology. Hydropower has the best conversion efficiencies among all known energy sources (about 90% efficiency, water to wire). It requires relatively high initial investment, but has a long lifespan with very low operation and maintenance costs. The existing hydropower system has an annual generation capacity of 3500TWha?1 and contributes to 16% of the annual electricity generation worldwide. There is still a large potential for further development, as the total technical potential has been estimated to be roughly 15000TWh. Out of this, about 8000TWh has been classified as economical potential. In Europe close to 50% of technical potential has already been developed, in Asia 25% and in Africa only 8%. Significant potential can also be found in existing infrastructure that currently lacks generating units (e.g. existing barrages, weirs, dams, canal fall structures, water supply schemes) by adding new hydropower facilities. Only 25% of the existing 45000 large dams in the world are currently used for hydropower, the other 75% are used exclusively for other purposes (e.g. irrigation, flood control, navigation and urban water supply schemes). Hydropower offers significant potential for carbon emissions reductions, since greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are generally very low, typically less than 1% of that from coal power plants. Hydropower is cost competitive, with levelised cost of energy (LCOE) typically in the range (3 to 5) USc(kWh)?1, which is comparable to the cost of energy from thermal power plants. Hydropower has an energy payback ratio (EPR) of 200300, highest of all types of renewable energies. Hydropower can provide both energy and water management services and also help to support other variable renewable energy sources like wind and solar, by providing storage and load balancing services.

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with the Google hacking showcase. As quoted by the founder of the Google hacking database, this chapter states that Google searches can reveal medical, financial, proprietary and even classified information. Despite government edicts, regulation and protection acts like HIPPA and the constant barking of security watchdogs, this problem still persists. Stuff still makes it out onto the web, and Google hackers access it at their disposal. It takes a look at some technical discoveries uncovered by Google hackers. It begins by various utilities that really have no business being online, unless of course one's goal is to aid hackers. Following this, it considers open network devices and open applications, neither of which requires any real hacking to gain access to. Through various examples, it describes what can go drastically wrong when the Google hacking threat is ignored, thus emphasizing the importance of knowledge of understanding of Google hacking, and online security measures.

Chapter 10 - Natural Gas Sweetening  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Acid gas constituents present in most natural gas streams are mainly hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Many gas streams, however, particularly those in a refinery or manufactured gases, may contain mercaptans, carbon sulfide, or carbonyl sulfide. The level of acid gas concentration in the sour gas is an important consideration for selecting the proper sweetening process. Some processes are applicable for removal of large quantities of acid gas, and other processes have the capacity for removing acid gas constituents to ppm range. This chapter covers the minimum process requirements, criteria, and features for accomplishment of process design of gas sweetening units. The basic principles for process design of main equipment, piping, and instrumentation together with guidelines on present developments and process selection in the gas sweetening process are the main objectives throughout this chapter.

Chapter 2 - The plastics industry: Economic overview  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter clarifies the real applications and the relative importance of the various families and processes of plastic industry. The Asian consumption is specifically orientated to glass reinforced plastics (GRP) without significant production of advanced composites. Three application sectorspackaging, building & civil engineering, and automotive & transportation consume 76% of all plastics. For each type of polymer, it is necessary to choose to best suit the required geometries, production rates, targeted properties, and economic context from several possible processing methods. Thermosets are mono- or bi-component liquids that harden at ambient or elevated temperatures, and can require a post-curing stage. Polymeric materials are intrinsically expensive, but their use becomes appealing if the processing costs, the new technical possibilities that they permit, and the total cost at the end of their lifetime are taken into account. Glass fibers account for an estimated 95% of the total fiber consumption for polymer reinforcement.

Chapter 8 - Solar Desalination Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Chapter 8 deals with solar desalination systems. The chapter initially analyzes the relation of water and energy as well as water demand and consumption and the relation of energy and desalination. Subsequently, the various desalination processes are described starting with a general exergy analysis of desalination systems and thermal desalination processes. This is followed by a review of the direct and indirect desalination systems. The typical direct system is the solar still and the analysis includes classification of solar distillation systems, performance of solar stills, and general comments on solar distillation. Indirect collection systems presented include the multistage flash process, the multiple-effect boiling process, the vapor compression process, reverse osmosis, and electrodialysis. These are described technologically and the system design equations are given. The chapter includes also a review of the renewable energy desalination systems and examines solar thermal energy, solar ponds, solar photovoltaic, wind power, hybrid solar PVwind power, and geothermal energy. Finally, the parameters to consider in the selection of a desalination process are examined.

Chapter 17 - Nuclear heat energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter delves into the important heating processes within a nuclear power plant. Applying Fouriers law of heat conduction permits determining temperature distributions within the nuclear fuel rods. In contrast, convective cooling occurs on the rod surface. The coolant, cladding and fuel temperature distributions through a reactor are determined. Besides heat transfer in the reactor core, some power plants employ heat exchangers to generate steam that is fed to a turbine-generator to produce electricity. As a consequence of the second law of thermodynamics, thermal power plants reject condenser heat to the environment through mechanisms such as cooling towers.

Chapter 3 - Google Hacking Basics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the basics of Google hacking and the functionality of the directory listings that can be used to locate specific files and directories. Google cache is a powerful tool in the hands of an advanced user. It can be used to locate old versions of pages that may expose information that normally would be unavailable to the casual user. The cache can be used to highlight terms in the cached version of a page, even if the terms were not used as part of the query to find that page. An advanced Google user will always pay careful attention to the details contained in the cached page's header, since there can be important information about the date the page was crawled, the terms that were found in the search, whether the cached page contains external images, links to the original page, and the text of the URL used to access the cached version of the page. Directory listings contain a great deal of information that is interesting from a security perspective. The directory listings can be used to determine specific information about the software installed on a server. Traversal techniques can be used to locate information that is often outside the piercing gaze of Google's crawlers. The chapter explores some specific techniques including directory traversal, incremental substitution, and extension walking.

Chapter Three - Steroids and NMR  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this chapter, the NMR spectroscopic investigation of steroids is analyzed from five different angles, yet the general stage, the steroid-specific aspect and the provision of an illustrative example are the common themes for each perspective. Firstly, steroids and NMR are placed in their chemical, analytical and pharmaceutical context. Secondly, the characteristic challenges of steroid structure elucidation and the aspects of specific moieties of steroidal compounds are described following chronological and also stereospecific lines. Subsequently, the application of NMR methodology is reviewed with respect to hostguest chemistry, impurity profiling and isotopic labelling, such as 3H, 17O and 19F. Furthermore, the use of computer-assisted structure elucidation applied to the steroids using incremental systems, simple databases and the current sophisticated spectral prediction algorithms will be discussed and their applications compared for testosterone and tibolone. The most recently developed and also the rare, but nonetheless valuable, NMR methods will also be presented. These include covariance processing, residual dipolar couplings and high-sensitivity CC INADEQUATE experiments. Finally, suitable experiment sets for steroid structure elucidation and structure confirmation are discussed. Tibolone is used as the common thread and serves as an illustrative example throughout this chapter.

Chapter 12 Geomorphometry in SAGA  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses (SAGA) is a full-fledged geographic information system (GIS) and many of its features have some relation with geomorphometry that makes it an ideal tool for operational work. This chapter emphasizes the particular characteristics of SAGA and the relation between some of its features and concepts. SAGA is GIS software with support for raster and vector data. It includes a large set of geo-scientific algorithms and is especially powerful for the analysis of digital elevation models (DEMs). The chapter introduces SAGA with a strong focus on the analysis and application of DEM data. SAGA has been designed to be a flexible and useful tool for the geoscientific community and a large part of its actual structure is due to that particular aim. Conceptually, the architecture of SAGA consists of three different components: (1) The application programming interface (API) provides all the basic functions for performing geographical analysis and is the true heart of SAGA itself. (2) A set of modules that are organized in module libraries, represents the geo-scientific methods. (3) The graphical user interface (GUI) is the system's front end, through which the user manages data and executes modules.

Chapter 3 - Fuels for Fuel Cells  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with various types of liquid fuels and the relevant chemical and physical properties of these fuels as a means of comparison to the fuels of the future. It gives an overview of the manufacture and properties of the common fuels as well as a description of various biofuels. A fuel mixture usually contains a wide range of organic compounds (usually hydrocarbons). The specific mixture of hydrocarbons gives a fuel its characteristic properties, such as boiling point, melting point, density, viscosity, and a host of other properties. Depending on the application (stationary, central power, remote, auxiliary, transportation, military, etc.), there are a wide range of conventional fuels, such as natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, light distillates, methanol, ethanol, dimethyl ether, naphtha, gasoline, kerosene, jet fuels, diesel, and biodiesel, that could be used in reforming processes to produce hydrogen (or hydrogen-rich synthesis gas) to power fuel cells. Fossils fuels include gaseous fuels, gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, and jet fuels. Gaseous fuels include natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas. Types of gasoline include automotive gasoline, aviation gasoline, and gasohol. Some additives added into gasoline are antioxidants, corrosion inhibitors, demulsifiers, anti-icing, dyes and markers, drag reducers, and oxygenates.

Chapter 10 God's Sacred Words  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents different domains of linguistics and language activity. A living system is characterized by having constraints as an inherent part of the system. A group of words that functions together as a unit is called a constituent. A constituent is an important notion in syntactic theory. Moreover, constituents are embedded one inside another and create a hierarchical structure. The power of the linguistic metaphor for biology is raising the awareness about the constraints imposed on tokens in a string of letters as a part of a meaning-making process. The rules that constrain the organization of micro-level particles are just one aspect of meaning making and should be careful not assigned them a hegemonic role in the multifaceted process of meaning making. Grammar can never be a substitute for meaning but just one layer of meaning making.

Chapter 24 - Nuclear energy future  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter attempts to concisely describe the role that nuclear power may take in the meeting the worlds future energy needs. Historically, economic considerations have triumphed all other considerations when selecting an energy source. Nuclear power growth stagnated in the late twentieth century for a variety of reasons. A revival in nuclear reactor construction is beginning in the United States and elsewhere at the start of the twenty-first century. World energyand especially electricityuse is increasing and sustainable approaches to meeting this need are sought. With rising concern about climate change, nuclear power is found to be the lowest contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, even compared to solar and wind power. Besides electricity generation, power reactors can be utilized for large-scale desalination and hydrogen generation.

Chapter 8 - Corrosion/Coatings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter explains that pipe is buoyant, and an empty line may float in water. Wet silts are like viscous fluids causing inadequately weighted pipelines to pop up. There are various government entities that have jurisdiction over navigable rivers, bays, marshlands, and offshore waters. These agencies may stipulate that pipelines be buried at certain depths and be stabilized. A good way to stabilize a pipeline is to use an adequate concrete weight coating. Determining the thickness of the concrete involves a process of balancing upward forces such as buoyancy of the mud and the downward forcesweights of pipe, protective coating, and concrete, allowing a factor of 60 (negative buoyancy). Such computations with several variables can become involved and tedious.

Chapter 17: Estimating Net Savings: Common Practices  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This chapter focuses on the methods used to estimate net energy savings in evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V) studies for energy efficiency (EE) programs. The chapter provides a definition of net savings, which remains an unsettled topic both within the EE evaluation community and across the broader public policy evaluation community, particularly in the context of attribution of savings to particular program. The chapter differs from the measure-specific Uniform Methods Project (UMP) chapters in both its approach and work product. Unlike other UMP resources that provide recommended protocols for determining gross energy savings, this chapter describes and compares the current industry practices for determining net energy savings, but does not prescribe particular methods.

Chapter 6 - The fusion - hydrogen energy system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter shows that the combination of fusion generation combined with hydrogen distribution will provide a system capable of virtually eliminating the negative impact on the environment from the use of energy by humanity. It addition, implementation of the energy system will provide techniques and tools that can ameliorate environmental problems unrelated to energy use. The nations that implement the FusionHydrogen energy system will experience a powerful surge of growth as companies, new and old, compete to product the supporting equipment. The Fusionhydrogen energy system will provide the means for dramatically reducing all forms of soil, water, and air pollution resulting from the extraction and use of fossil fuels. Hydrogen fuel use will stop the addition of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere and the attendant warming of the earth. It will stop atmospheric pollution by materials responsible for acid rain. It will also provide a reliable energy source with an inconsequential potential for generation of new types of pollution. The hydrogen energy carrier can be easily transported throughout the world without damage to the environment. It provides a safe and highly reliable energy distribution system for use by all the sectors of the economy.

Chapter 2 Offshore Wind Power Stations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents the historical background and development of offshore wind power stations. As early as 1890, windmills were put to work to produce electricity and more than 50,000 mills were in use in the United States alone in the twenties and thirties. Their decline was precipitated by the Rural Electrification Program. According to the San Francisco based Transaction Energy Projects Institute, offshore windmills could generate all the electrical power needed by northern California. Ocean winds have of course provided energy to windmills for centuries. In 1976, a study was commissioned by the (U.S.) Energy Research and Development Administration to ascertain and assess the economic value of offshore multi units aiming at identification and classification of area offshore types, assessing utility requirements for offshore power systems. It includes developing installation concepts including various floating and bottom-mounted designs, assessing current WECS (wind energy converter systems) for use in offshore environments, assessing various electric transmission and hydrogen delivery concepts, and performing an economic assessment, providing tradeoffs for variables such as distance offshore, climate, bottom and wave characteristics and average wave velocities. It is suggested that high wind velocity sites must be identified because the energy flow increases with the cube of the wind velocity; the kinetic energy of the wind passing through the area swept by the blades of a turbine is the energy available to that wind turbine. An average wind speed distribution is required.

Chapter 8: Plasma operation and control  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The ITER plasma control system has the same functional scope as the control systems in present tokamaks. These are plasma operation scenario sequencing, plasma basic control (magnetic and kinetic), plasma advanced control (control of RWMs, NTMs, ELMs, error fields, etc) and plasma fast shutdown. This chapter considers only plasma initiation and plasma basic control. This chapter describes the progress achieved in these areas in the tokamak experiments since the ITER Physics Basis (1999 Nucl. Fusion 39 2577) was written and the results of assessment of ITER to provide the plasma initiation and basic control. This assessment was done for the present ITER design (15?MA machine) at a more detailed level than it was done for the ITER design 1998 (21?MA machine) described in the ITER Physics Basis (1999 Nucl. Fusion 39 2577). The experiments on plasma initiation performed in DIII-D and JT-60U, as well as the theoretical studies performed for ITER, have demonstrated that, within specified assumptions on the plasma confinement and the impurity influx, ITER can produce plasma initiation in a low toroidal electric field (0.3?V?m?1), if it is assisted by about 2?MW of ECRF heating. The plasma basic control includes control of the plasma current, position and shapethe plasma magnetic control, as well as control of other plasma global parameters or their profilesthe plasma performance control. The magnetic control is based on more reliable and simpler models of the control objects than those available at present for the plasma kinetic control. Moreover the real time diagnostics used for the magnetic control in many cases are more precise than those used for the kinetic control. Because of these reasons, the plasma magnetic control was developed for modern tokamaks and assessed for ITER better than the kinetic control. However, significant progress has been achieved in the plasma performance control during the last few years. Although the physics basis of plasma operation and control is similar in ITER and present tokamaks, there is a principal qualitative difference. To minimize its cost, ITER has been designed with small margins in many plasma and engineering parameters. These small margins result in a significantly narrower operational space compared with present tokamaks. Furthermore, ITER operation is expensive and component damage resulting from purely operational errors might lead to a high and avoidable repair cost. These factors make it judicious to use validated plasma diagnostics and employ simulators to 'pre-test' the combined ITER operation and control systems. Understanding of how to do this type of pre-test validation is now developed in present day experiments. This research push should provide us with fully functional simulators before the first ITER operation.

Chapter 6 - Subsea Cost Estimation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter provides guidelines for cost estimation during a project feasibility study, where the accuracy range is between 30% for subsea field development projects. Subsea cost refers to the cost of the whole project, which generally includes the capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operation expenditures (OPEX) of the subsea field development. The feasibility studies are performed before execution of the project, which may include three phases as shown in the figure: prefield development; conceptual/feasibility study; and front-end engineering design (FEED). Cost estimations are made for several purposes, and the methods used for the estimations as well as the desired amount of accuracy will be different. The cost estimation classifications according to Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering (AACE): level of project definition: expressed as percentage of complete definition; end usage: typical purpose of estimation; methodology: typical estimating method; expected accuracy range: typical range relative to best index of 1; and preparation effort: typical degree of effort relative to least cost index of 1.

Chapter 2 Conventional refining processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses conventional refining processes. Refining is a very elaborate operation by which crude oil is transformed into a series of products such as, gases, fuels, solvents, lube oils, etc. Crude oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons (HC) of different C/H ratio and molecular structures. The different classes of HC molecules comprise paraffins, olefins, cycles, aromatics, resins, asphaltenes, and other poly-unsaturated molecules. In addition to hydrocarbons, crude oils also contain some other compounds composed by other atoms (heteroatoms) than carbon and hydrogen. Those moieties consist of sulfur (S), nitrogen (N), oxygen (O), and heavy metals. Crudes are usually classified in terms of their specific gravity as very light, light, median, heavy, and extra heavy. An empirical set of units for the crude gravity, defined by the American Petroleum Institute (API), is currently used in oil industry. Their appearance varies from transparent liquids to black solids, going from light to heavy. Light oils have lower specific gravity and larger API gravity, while for heavy oils vice versa. Their composition also changes, and so the concentration of those heteroatomic compounds typically increases from light to heavy. The crude oils are also categorized in terms of their chemical composition, as for instance, sour crude oils, those presenting high acidity, paraffinic, naphthenic, and aromatic.

Chapter 3 Emerging biocatalytic processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses biocatalytic processes. The microbial populations, working in the oil reservoir, influenced the final petroleum product. Indeed, those populations adapted to the reservoir environment under extreme conditions, such as pressure, salinity, temperature, etc. The isolation of such microorganisms from extreme environments as well as those from environments exposed to oil (via oil spills, oily wastewater treatment, etc.) has resulted in identification of biological catalysts, which could be used to remove heteroatoms or transform oil components to improve yields and quality of the oil as well as its refined products. Bacteria have evolved to scavenge carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, and metals present in crude oil over time, and such bacteria have served as the source of catalytic materials for oil bioprocessing applications. The understanding that these biological functionalities are a result of evolutionary pressures, serves as inspiration for development of new and emerging technologies. Five main areas of bioprocessing research have emerged in the search for commercial value addition: (1) microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR), (2) biodesulfurization, (3) biodenitrogenation, (4) viscosity reduction/biocracking, and (5) biodemetallization.

Chapter 6 - Google Hacking Showcase  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on what can go drastically wrong when the Google hacking threat is ignored. A decent no-tech hacker can accumulate a library of significant data just by observing the world around him. But often that data is completely useless on its own. Arguably the most well known of no-tech hacking techniques among hackers in the know, Google hacking has become a standard weapon in every attacker's arsenal. A self-respecting Google hacker spends hours trolling the Internet for juicy stuff. Firing off search after search, they thrive on the thrill of finding clean, mean, streamlined queries and get a real rush from sharing those queries and trading screenshots of their findings. Google Hacking Showcase consists of screenshots of wild Google hacks the author had witnessed. Borrowing from the pool of interesting Google queries he had created, along with scores of queries from the community. The author snagged screenshots and presented them one at a time, making smarmy comments along the way. It makes sense to include the showcase in the edition of Google Hacking.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter describes ways of hacking into Google services. It reveals tricks to recover interesting information from Google's vast indexes. AJAX Search API is one of the leading Google services on the AJAX front. This service is meant as a replacement of the older SOAP search service which support was discontinued some time ago. AJAX Search API is considered to be more powerful then the SOAP service and easier to work with. The primary goal of the service is to enable external websites to host Google supplied gadgets which provide searching facilities within or outside of the hosting website and also among video clips, maps, blogs, custom search engines, etc. The Google AJAX Search API is designed to be embedded within external pages. This is described in the study. Following this, it reveals the characteristics of AJAX search, using Firefox as the primary tool of development. Furthermore, it describes the ways of hacking into the AJAX search engine. It also discusses Google calendar, Google's blog search, and subversion version management system. Finally, the study demonstrates that that the search facility is quite fuzzy and queries need to be often refined in order to get better results.

Chapter 22 - Radioactive Waste Disposal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses safe disposal of radioactive waste in order to provide safety to workers and the public. Radioactive wastes arise from a great variety of sources, including the nuclear fuel cycle, and from beneficial uses of isotopes and radiation by institutions. Spent fuel contains uranium, plutonium, and highly radioactive fission products. In the United States spent fuel is accumulating, awaiting the development of a high-level waste repository. A multi-barrier system involving packaging and geological media will provide protection of the public over the centuries the waste must be isolated. The favored method of disposal is in a mined cavity deep underground. In other countries, reprocessing the fuel assemblies permits recycling of materials and disposal of smaller volumes of solidified waste. Transportation of wastes is by casks and containers designed to withstand severe accidents. Low-level wastes (LLWs) come from research and medical procedures and from a variety of activation and fission sources at a reactor site. They generally can be given near-surface burial. Isotopes of special interest are cobalt-60 and cesium-137. Transuranic wastes are being disposed of in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Establishment of regional disposal sites by interstate compacts has generally been unsuccessful in the United States. Decontamination of defense sites will be long and costly. Decommissioning of reactors in the future will contribute a great deal of low-level radioactive waste.

Chapter 5 Salinity Gradient Energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

There exists a huge potential for the generation of energy from the mixing of saltwater and freshwater. The potential is 2.6TW, which is more than the global electricity consumption (2.0TW). Two membrane-based technologies exist to convert this potentially available energy into useful power: pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) and reverse electrodialysis (RED). In PRO, water is transported through a semipermeable membrane from the less concentrated solution toward the concentrated salt solution to generate power. In RED, salt ions are transported from the concentrated salt solution through ion exchange membranes toward the less concentrated solution to extract the energy. Both technologies were developed in the 1970s and 1980s and both regained interest lately due to recent developments in membrane technology and the need for sustainable energy processes. This chapter describes the potential of salinity gradient energy of both processes in detail, and an overview of the relevant literature on both technologies is presented. Furthermore, it summarizes the recent developments, pilot testing, scale-up, and future expectations of both technologies.

Although a range of eavesdropping tools is available, one should gravitate toward passive methods of eavesdropping. Such methods can enable to avoid entering the locations that one wish to monitor. It discusses the use of radio frequency scanners for monitoring several methods of communication. One can use such devices to monitor Bluetooth, cellular, and data networks, and other radio sources as well. Although specialized equipment is required for listening to some forms of radio communication, others are accessible with low-cost devices off the shelf or equipment that we can cobble together ourselves. It discusses the use of key loggers, in both hardware and software forms. Such devices can be used to record everything from keystrokes to complete video of the user's desktop for later perusal. It also discusses some of the issues in using key loggers, such as placement, retrieving data, and taking steps to not be discovered. It concludes with clandestinely placed sensors, including video and audio bugs.

Chapter 3 - Recycling in Context  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The recycling of metals is widely viewed as a fruitful sustainability strategy, but information on the degree to which recycling is actually occurring is limited in scope and detail. In this chapter we define various metrics for the recycling of metals and present current information on recycled content (RC), end-of-life recycling rates (EOL-RR), and old scrap ratios (OSR) for 60 metals of the periodic table. Because of growth in metal use over time, and because metal in-use lifetimes can be many years to several decades, many RC values are low and will remain so for the foreseeable future. In addition, because relatively low efficiencies often exist in the collection and processing of most discarded products, because of inherent limitations in recycling processes, and because primary material is often relatively abundant and low cost (thereby keeping down the price of scrap), many EOL-RR are very low but have the potential for improvement. Only 12 metals (Co, Fe, Mn, Nb, Ni, Pb, Pd, Pt, Re, Rh, Sn and Ti) have the EOL-RR above 50% at present. Only Nb, Pb and Ru have an RC above 50%, although 15 metals are in the 2550% range. Thirteen metals have an OSR >50%. Improving recycling performance will be increasingly challenging as materials integration continues its rise.

Chapter 13 - Progressing cavity pumps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Progressing cavity pumps (PCPs) have the advantage of being able to easily pump solids, liquids, and gasses. With comparatively the lowest capital cost and highest operating efficiencies of any ALS, \\{PCPs\\} are the preferred artificial lift system for many CBM operations. Dewatering CBM wells with \\{PCPs\\} is a relatively routine operation that has been deployed successfully since the mid-1980s. The PC pump is composed of two components, the rotor and the stator. The rotor is manufactured from high strength steel and covered with a chrome layer 0.010 to 0.020 inches thick. The rotor is the only moving component of the pump. The stator has an internal helix shape molded into an elastomer compound that is chemically bonded to the inside of a steel tube. When the rotor is inserted into the stator, it creates a continuous seal line (compression/interference fit between the rotor and stator elastomer) that extends from the pump suction to discharge. This creates a series of identical, but separate, cavities that progress from the pump suction to the discharge as the rotor turns. Water production handling, gas production handling, critical tubing flow velocity, and pump landing depth are briefly discussed in this chapter

Chapter 14 - Coal bed methane  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Methane adsorbed to the surface of coal is a very old issue with some new commercial ramifications. This explosive gas has made underground coal mines dangerous both from the risk of explosion and the possibility of an oxygen-poor atmosphere that wouldn't support life. The miner's main concern with coal bed methane (CBM) has been how to get rid of it. Techniques to deal with CBM in mines have ranged from the classic canary in a cage to detect an oxygen-poor atmosphere to huge ventilation fans to force the replacement of a methane-rich environment with outside air, to drilling CBM wells in front of the coal face to try to degas the coal prior to exposing the mine to the CBM. All these techniques have met with some amount of success. None of the techniques to prevent CBM from fouling the air in an underground mine has been totally successful. With the CBM's unique method of gas storage, the preponderance of the gas is available only to very low coalface pressures. The coalface pressure is set by a combination of flowing wellhead pressure and the hydrostatic head exerted by standing liquid within the well bore. Effective compression strategies can lower the wellhead pressure to very low values. Effective deliquification techniques can reduce or remove the backpressure caused by accumulated liquid. CBM's economic impact is briefly explained in this chapter.

Chapter 12 - Security Risk Reviews  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the security risk review (SRR). The purpose of the SRR process is to identify areas where one's security standards are not being met. The focus initially should be on applications and supporting infrastructure that are most critical to the organization. This risk analysis process follows five high-level steps: assess resources, generate findings, analyze risk, risk decision, and risk exceptions. The goal with the SRR is to prioritize not only the resources being evaluated but also the importance of the standards themselves. The standard requiring a log of all guest accesses to the data center may be rightly deemed less critical than the requirement to have swipe card access to the data center. Reviews should be performed periodically or whenever new policies/standards are adopted by the organization. A fundamental control for any organization is a collection of security policies and standards that set the tone for how to operate the business securely. Once these are in place, the challenge then becomes how to assess the organization's current alignment with these standards and determine which gaps most urgently need to be addressed. This may sound like an audit function, but there is a very important distinction here: this process is meant to proactively prioritize those areas where a deviation from the standard might be acceptable and recognize the cases where such a divergence cannot be tolerated. Like many risk activities, the result will either be a formal acceptance of the current state or a plan to mitigate the risks. This is one of the fundamental on-going risk assessment activities that will help to gauge the security posture of the organization versus what controls might be documented on paper.

Chapter 9 - Natural Gas Dehydration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Natural, associated, or tail gas usually contains water, in liquid and/or vapor form, at source and/or as a result of sweetening with an aqueous solution. Operating experience and thorough engineering have proved that it is necessary to reduce and control the water content of gas to ensure safe processing and transmission. Pipeline drips installed near wellheads and at strategic locations along gathering and trunk lines will eliminate most of the free water lifted from the wells in the gas stream. Multistage separators can also be deployed to ensure the reduction of free water that may be present. However, the removal of the water vapor that exists in solution in natural gas requires a more complex treatment. This treatment consists of dehydrating the natural gas, which is accomplished by lowering the dew point temperature of the gas at which water vapor will condense from the gas. There are several methods of dehydrating natural gas. The most common of these are liquid desiccant (glycol) dehydration, solid desiccant dehydration, and cooling the gas. Any of these methods may be used to dry gas to a specific water content. Usually, the combination of the water content specification, initial water content, process character, operational nature, and economic factors determine the dehydration method to be utilized. However, the choice of dehydration method is usually between glycol and solid desiccants. These are presented in depth in subsequent portions of this chapter. Keywords: absorber, adsorption isotherm, bed loading, chemisorption, dehydration, desiccant, desiccant regeneration, equilibrium zone, flash tank, flow distribution, glycol circulation pump, glycol dehydration, inlet feed contamination, liquid carryover, mass transfer zone, molecular sieve, overcirculation, reboiler, solubility, still, surge tank, undercirculation.

Chapter 1 - Natural Gas Fundamentals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Natural gas is the most energy-efficient fossil fuel; it offers important energy-saving benefits when it is used instead of oil or coal. Although the primary use of natural gas is as a fuel, it is also a source of hydrocarbons for petrochemical feedstocks and a major source of elemental sulfur, an important industrial chemical. Its popularity as an energy source is expected to grow substantially in the future because natural gas can help achieve two important energy goals for the twenty-first century: providing the sustainable energy supplies and services needed for social and economic development and reducing adverse impacts on global climate and the environment in general. Natural gas consumption and trade have been growing steadily over the past two decades, and natural gas has strengthened its position in the world energy mix. Although natural gas demand declined in 2009, as a result of the economic slowdown, it is expected to resume growth in both emerging and traditional markets in the coming decades. Such increase in the near future will be driven because of additional demand in current uses, primarily power generation. There is yet little overlap between the use of natural gas and oil in all large markets. However, there are certain moves in the horizon, including the electrifying of transportation, that will push natural gas use to ever higher levels. This book gives the reader an introduction to natural gas by describing the origin and composition of natural gas, gas sources, phase behavior and properties, and transportation methods. Keywords: Absolute Open Flow, bulk modulus of elasticity, coal-bed methane, cricondenbar, cricondentherm, Expected Ultimate Recovery, gas deviation factor, higher heating value, Inflow Performance Relationship, kerogen, laminar flow, liquefied natural gas, primary thermogenic gas, pyrobitumen, secondary thermogenic gas, super-compressibility factor, thiol, Tubing Performance Curve, turbulent flow, unconventional gas resources, Wobbe Index, Wobbe Number.

Chapter 6 - Brake System Layout Design  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter brings together high-level braking system design (Chapters 3 and 4Chapter 3Chapter 4) and the design of friction brakes (Chapter 5) to complete the layout design of road vehicle braking systems. Two actuation systems are studied: hydraulic (used on passenger cars and light commercial vehicles) and pneumatic (used on heavy commercial vehicles). Other braking technologies (e.g. regenerative) and actuation systems (e.g. power hydraulic and electromechanical) are also mentioned. A four-step design procedure is presented, which includes designing the basic braking system parameters based on the vehicle configuration, specifying the brakes (size and torque capacity), designing the actuation system, and verification (legislative requirements). Examples are presented for a hydraulic system with a vacuum booster (passenger car) and a pneumatic system (articulated commercial vehicle), which illustrate the important features of achieving a good basic system configuration. In passenger cars, the importance of driver interface parameters such as pedal feel is explained, and for commercial vehicles, compatibility, load sensing, and predominance between the trailer and towing vehicle brake systems is discussed.

Chapter 31 - The Economics of Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Recycling is generally considered an important strategy for alleviating the pressures of society on the environment while creating employment and attracting investments. In recent years, many countries have experienced large increases in recycling. This chapter aims to identify the main economic drivers of recycling, address the economic effects of recycling-related activities, and demonstrate the effectiveness of economic policies promoting recycling. The chapter demonstrates how recycling takes place in a volatile, dynamic, and globalizing world, which complicates the projections of future developments in the recycling sector. Moreover, the chapter describes which private and external costs of recycling-related activities need to be taken into account and how these effects can be valued in economic terms. Finally, the most important economic instruments to promote recycling are identified and explained.

Chapter 21 - Recycling of Packaging  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Packaging is so common throughout our lives and the world that we hardly realize the massive volume of material consumed for packaging. Packaging is the key factor determining the volume and composition of municipal solid waste in many countries. The volume and composition of packaging waste are affected by a number of factors. Economic development, population, and a variety of national factors are key drivers for the total volume. The composition changes over time due to technology and economic drivers, but it is also affected by national traditions and policies. Due to the important contribution to the total volume of waste generated, packaging has historically received a lot of attention in waste management policy. This had led to a range of experiences with different ways to collect packaging waste throughout the world. The type of collection scheme is driven by the type of packaging or material (i.e. reuse, recycling, or waste treatment). Recycling rates vary by material type, with the highest collection and recycling rates found for metals, glass, and paper. Collection and recycling rates of plastics are generally still very low. The effectiveness and efficiency of collection are affected by a variety of factors, including cultural, economic, and organizational factors.

Chapter 8 - The history of nuclear energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter reviews the history related to nuclear energy beginning with scientific investigations in the late 1800s that led to the discovery of subatomic particles and both atomic and nuclear structure. Those research efforts spawned the discovery of fission. The Manhattan Project to develop an atomic bomb then accelerated the knowledge base of nuclear phenomena. After World War II, the Atomic Energy Commission was established and later the International Atomic Energy Agency. Research and development efforts led to the deployment of the first nuclear power plants. This chapter ends by addressing the controversies surrounding nuclear energy in the late twentieth century.

Chapter 28 - Perceptual Audio Coding  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Audio Coding has proliferated as a mainstream enabling digital technology for all types of applications that provide audio and multimedia to consumers using transmission or storage channels with limited capacity. Since its infancies in the eighties and early nineties, the technology behind low bitrate audio coding has developed rapidly until today. Nonetheless, the technology generations seen to date follow several common themes, including the use of time/frequency-domain processing, redundancy reduction (entropy coding), and irrelevancy removal through the pronounced exploitation of perceptual effects. The latter aspect is of paramount importance to the understanding and the performance of the coding systems and has gained more and more in importance over time. Starting from basic principles, this article provides an overview of methods for low bitrate perceptual audio coding and its evolution over time along with some related coding standards (e.g., mp3) and typical applications.

Chapter 1 - What Is Nuclear Fusion?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter reviews the history of nuclear fusion, and states how in the 20th century it became possible to split an atom through nuclear fission, or combine them together using nuclear fusion. Only in the early 20th century was it realized that nuclear fusion is the energy source that runs the universe and that simultaneously it is the mechanism responsible for creating all the different chemical elements in the world. The chapter talks about the Sun's energy, and points out how the work of Albert Einstein, Francis Aston, and Arthur Eddington led to the realization that the energy radiated by the sun and the stars is because of nuclear fusion. However, it was only after quantum mechanics was developed that a complete understanding of nuclear fusion came about. The chapter also discusses how researchers realized that mass can be turned into energy, especially Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassman, who demonstrated that the uranium atom could be split by bombarding uranium with neutrons, giving way to the release of a large amount of energy. Man-made suns are discussed next, reviewing the experiments done on attempts at harnessing fusion energy. Finally, the development of nuclear power plants is briefly discussed in the chapter.

Chapter 11 - Regulatory and Political Risks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

All major projects have political aspects (11.2). The Project Company may therefore be subject to political risks relating to the projects presence in a particular country and its relationship with the Host Government, rather than to the more general commercial and macro-economic risk aspects of the project covered in Chapter 9 and Chapter 10. These political risks are discussed in detail in this chapter. There are two main areas of risk relating to government actions: firstly regulatory or change in law risks (11.3), which affect all projects to some extent, and secondly investment risks (11.4), which mainly affect cross-border project investments, primarily in developing countries. Linked to the latter are quasi-political risks, which relate to government taking indirect action against the project (11.5). This chapter also deals with the particular issues arising from sub-sovereign risks i.e. where the Offtaker/Contracting Authority is a state or local government instead of the central government (11.6). Finally the terms for a Government Support Agreement, which may help to deal with the issues covered in 11.311.6, are described (11.7). Political-risk insurance may be available to cover these risks (11.8).

Chapter 10 - Novel Power Generating Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this chapter, some novel power generating systems are discussed. It is believed that sustainable thermal energy sources such as industrial waste heat recovery, concentrated solar radiation, ocean thermal energy, nuclear heat, and biomass combustion will gradually become more important. The first part of the chapter presents a novel system for power conversion from low-grade heat. This is an advanced ammoniawater-based power cycle able to operate with minimal exergy destruction due to an excellent match of temperature profiles at the heat source and sink. The chapter continues with thermoelectric power generators that can address the challenge of efficient power generation from high-grade thermal energy. Chemical looping combustion systems for power generation are treated thereafter for situations when carbon emissions must be reduced by carbon dioxide separation and sequestration or partial recycling. The last section of the chapter presents a number of selected novel systems for power generation, including magneto-hydrodynamic generators, thermoacoustic generators, and cryogenic compression oxy-combustion power plants with supercritical carbon dioxide and some novel integrated systems.

Abstract The term cyber terror appeared for the first time in the mid-eighties. Since then the notion has been misused a number of times by journalists and politicians. It does not help that cyber terror does not have a clear, agreed definition. This chapter first analyses the background of the confusion. Secondly, the chapter provides a definition of cyber terrorism which aligns with national definitions of terrorism. From this, it becomes clear that no act of cyber terror has yet occurred. We need to be prepared however as the increasing societal critical reliance on ICT will make ICT systems and services as well as embedded ICT an interesting target for future terrorists.

Chapter 8 - Risk Analysis for Subsea Pipelines  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The purpose of this chapter is to apply risk-based inspection planning methodologies to pipeline systems, by developing a set of methods and tools for the estimation of risks using structural reliability approach and incidental databases, and to illustrate our risk based inspection and management approach through three examples, including risk analysis for a subsea gas pipeline, dropped object risk analysis and how to use RBIM to reduce operation costs. After outlining the constituent steps of a complete risk analysis methodology, it gives detailed information about each step of the methodology such that a complete risk analysis can be achieved. To get the final acceptable design/procedure, these steps are needed, including acceptance criteria, identification of initiating events, crude consequence analysis, cause analysis, quantitative cause analysis, consequence analysis and risk estimation. This chapter also gave a detailed guidance on evaluation of failure frequency, consequence, risk and risk-based inspection and integrity management of pipeline systems.

Chapter 16 - Health, Safety and Environment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The goal of this chapter is to provide students with the basics of health, safety and environment (HSE) activities in conceptual process design. The first section describes the impact factors, associated toxicological and physical properties, as well as estimation methods assisted by computer simulation. These properties are gathered in a compulsory document for design, manufacturing and use of a chemical product that is the material safety data sheet. The most efficient treatment of HSE issues is at the conceptual design stage, when the process modifications have the strongest effect. The goal is achieving inherently safer design. The protection of the equipment by safety valves is shortly presented. This chapter ends with the most commonly employed methods in industry for the assessment and management of potential risks, such as the Dow Fire and Explosion Index and hazard and operability study.

Nanotechnology has been in dentistry for tooth sealants and fillers that use nanosized particles to improve their strength, luster, and resist wear. Antimicrobial nanoparticles in restorative composite materials are used to prevent dental caries. Silver particles as antibacterial agents when used in fillers and toothpastes can retard bacterial growth and reduce tooth decay. It is envisaged that in the longer term biomimetic approaches and nanotechnology will be used to repair and rebuild damaged enamel. In near future, nanomaterials will be used far more widely and will yield superior properties and combined with biotechnology, laser and digital guided surgery will provide excellent dental care. Smarter preventive measures and earlier interventions to avert craniofacial disorders using nanodiagnostics seems a reality. Nanotechnology research will pave the way for development of tools which would allow clinicians to diagnose and treat oral malignancies at their earliest stage. Nanotechnology is a term that is used to describe the science and technology related to the control and manipulation of matter and devices on a scale less than 100nm in dimension. It involves a multidisciplinary approach involving fields such as applied physics, materials science, chemistry, biology, biomedical engineering, surface science, electrical engineering, and robotics. At the nanoscale level, the properties of matter are dictated and there are fewer boundaries between scientific disciplines. Generally, two main approaches have been used in nanotechnology. These are known as the bottom-up and top-down approaches. The former involves building up from atoms into molecules to assemble nanostructures, materials, and devices. The second approach involves making structures and devices from larger entities without specific control at the atomic level. Progress in both approaches has been accelerated in recent years with the development and application of highly sensitive instruments. For example, atomic force microscopy (AFM), scanning tunnelling microscope (STM), electron beam lithography, molecular beam epitaxy, and so on have become available to push forward developments in this exciting new field. These instruments allow observation and manipulation of novel nanostructures. By investigating and understanding the functionality of materials at the micro/nanoscale level, the scientific community is working towards finding new techniques to achieve maximum functional output from these materials with minimum energy and resource input. Extensive research is being done worldwide to understand the advantages and scientific limitations of nanotechnology and its applications in a wide range of disciplines from material science, biomedical research to space research. In the field of medicine, nanotechnology has been extensively applied in nanoparticle-based drug delivery, nanoscale diagnostic tools, tissue engineering, and biosensors. In the field of dentistry, there have been numerous research work done over the past few decades exploring the applications of nanotechnology in dental biomaterials, dental implantology, dental instruments, nanoparticles/scaffolds for bone regeneration around dental implants and maxillofacial region, and nanodiagnostic tools to diagnose oral pathology. In this chapter, the applications of nanotechnology in dentistry have been outlined and are described in the subsequent chapters of this book.

Chapter 8 - Pipeline External Corrosion Protection  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Offshore steel pipelines are normally designed for a life ranging from 10 years to 40 years. To enable the pipeline to last for the design life, the pipeline needs to be protected from corrosion both internally and externally. Internal corrosion is related to fluid that is carried by the pipeline, and this topic is not covered here. This chapter describes the method by which the external corrosion of offshore pipelines may be minimized.

Chapter 7 Microbial Plugging in Enhanced Oil Recovery  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter explores the microbial plugging problems associated with conventional water-flooding operations and evaluates the mechanisms responsible. The characteristics required of bacterial microbiologically enhanced oil recovery (MEOR) cultures for their successful injection are described and the microbial problems anticipated during other enhanced oil recovery (EOR) operations such as polymer flooding is discussed. There are two general mechanisms of microbial plugging likely to occur in the wellbore region. Two mechanisms of plugging can be distinguished: (1) particulate plugging by the microbial cells themselves and (2) viable bacterial plugging through biofilm formation. The mechanisms of microbial plugging is independently demonstrated in a model core system in which the average pore throat size is sufficiently large (33 pm) to ensure that particulate type plugging will be relatively insignificant for suspensions of singly dispersed bacteria. The importance of extracellular polymer production in microbial plugging has also been demonstrated using a culture not noted for biofilm formation.

The book is organized and written in a way that makes it easy to read, whilst keeping a wealth of detailed, up-to-date information available in separate, well defined panels. Astounding photographs and excellent illustrations help to examine the evidence which leads to our current understanding of the structure of the Universe, and investigate the possibility of the existence of other lifeforms. I found the book extremely readable and highly informative on this rapidly developing, high profile area of science. With a layout that would not preclude its use as a reference book for younger (KS3) pupils, at the same time it provides enough depth of information to enthral both myself and older pupils. I will certainly be recommending that both our school and department libraries have a copy, and would unreservedly recommend it to other teachers of Astronomy, Physics or Biology.

Thus Health Physics is a revised version of the 1996 book by the same authors which was written for the Cambridge-examined modular A-level. Superficially the new book is very similar to the original it is light (at 80 pages, only 10 pages longer) and easily accessible. The book follows Cambridge Advanced Sciences (CAS) house style with lots of illustrations, clear chapter objective and summaries, SAQs interspersed in the text and end-of-chapter questions. What's new? Most of the changes reflect changes in the OCR specification. The chapter on Energy Needs is replaced by Body Mechanics. Sadly the chapter is marred with sloppy language, imprecise diagrams and, worst of all, the incorrect classification of a toe raise as class 2 lever. (The author was only recently alerted to this common mistake by reading the ASE's very useful Signs, Symbols and Systematics 16-19 1.) The rest of the book is very similar to the original the chapters on the eye and the ear are almost identical. The chapters covering radiation and ultrasound have been reorganized into smaller, more logical chapters, which I think will suit my lesson-plans better, and my feeling is that there is a slight improvement in the quality and the quantity of medical images (though sadly, they are mostly still in black and white). A useful book by way of an introduction to medical physics, and vital if you teach the OCR course. KP 1 Signs, Symbols and Systematics 16-19, ASE, 2000. ISBN 0863573126, price 30.00.

Chapter 23 - Polymeric Biomaterials in Nanomedicine  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Polymeric nanomaterial-based therapeutics play a key role in the field of medicine in treatment areas such as drug delivery, tissue engineering, cancer, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases. Advantages in the use of polymers over other materials for nanomedicine include increased functionality, design flexibility, improved processability, and, in some cases, biocompatibility. However, with the excitement surrounding the use of nanomaterials for therapeutic and diagnostic biological applications, there are also health and safety concerns. This chapter introduces nanomedicine and the use of both natural and synthetic polymeric biomaterials, focuses on specific current polymeric nanomedicine applications and research, and concludes with the challenges of nanomedicine research.
