  • Sustained memory bandwidth for range of strides is a key to high-performance vector processing. To reduce the number of memory bank conflicts and thereby increase memory bandwidth, one often resorts to data skewing schemes. In this paper, the authors present a family of data skewing schemes called logical skewing schemes. In logical skewing schemes, the location of a data element is determined solely by logical manipulation of the address bits. The authors' experiments show that logical skewing schemes allow for better vector memory system performance than other known data skewing schemes without the significant increase in memory latency that ismore » traditionally associated with data skewing schemes.« less
  • The application of atmospheric diffusion models for calculating air pollution is related to the data received. Evaluation of the results by field and regular measurements gives different values if the averaging period grows. Diffusion models are used in studies of background monitoring data analysis and evaluation of environmental pollution from local sources. The basic model formula contains analytical equations in the Gaussian approach with dispersion parameters by Brigg`s approximation. The calculating scheme and program were modified according to experiment conditions. The wind-tunnel experimental measurements of diffusion were used for study in the case of floor roughness surface. The comparison showsmore » a good correlation of results.« less
  • This collection assembles the level schemes for A> 44 from the Nuclear Data Sheets. Although this volume was mainly prepared by photocopying the drawings contained in past issues of the Nuclear Data Sheets, the editors made corrections in a few cases where gross errors were known. As the drawings were self-contained. (RWR)
  • Radioactivity is released in effluents from nuclear power plants and their supporting fuel cycle facilities. Methods have been developed by which the radiological impact on man of these releases can be assessed. These methods rely on data from field laboratory studies concerned with radionuclide and stable element distribution and transport in both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. The data from these studies have been published in journals and reports from research institutions over a period of several decades. The present work presents a review of the data and gives guidelines for their use in assessments of the impacts of routine releasesmore » of radioactive effluents.« less
