  • The development of reliable classificatory models of urban journey-to-work mode choice is reported. The models are based upon disaggregate data collected in an extensive home interview survey of Columbus, Ohio households. A variety of variable-types are utilized in the analyses, ranging from conventional socio-economic and locational classifications of commuters to perceptual and attitudinal assessments of modal alternatives by each survey respondent. All developed models are subsequently tested for predictive accuracy using an independent data set drawn from a second, clustered survey of Columbus households. Designated ''optimal'' mode choice models are then used to evaluate probable commuter responsiveness to a seriesmore » of proposed changes in bus transit characteristics. Results are disaggregated by homogeneous groupings of respondents to better measure differential demand sensitivities within the urban commuter market.« less
  • The Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia used metering as the principal management tool to cut energy use by 42% from the base year 1973. 235 meters were installed. Transducers were installed with each meter (as pictured) to transmit signals, via telephone lines, to a centrally located base station. Computers analyzed the power data and allocated energy to seven directorates within the Langley base. A schematic of the system, and several graphic examples of successful energy saving metering adjustments are given.
  • Air pollution control regulations which apply to the user's plant will indicate allowable particulate emission, stack opacity, and sulfur dioxide emission. These emission requirements should be reviewed with the local or state environmental agency to get a clear understanding of the regulations and how to interpret them. Also it should be determined if and what changes are anticipated or are in the process of being made. While the regulations indicate maximum allowable particulate emissions and stack opacity, the quantitative limits may not be comparable. Methods for determining certain data have to be acceptable to the pollution control manufacturers in ordermore » for them to use this information in the selection of control hardware. Source testing is desirable, but may not be possible because the boiler is not set up for coal burning, or the environmental agency will not allow coal burning until proper air pollution controls are installed. The remaining alternative is to predict the required data. The original boiler manufacturer is in the best position to predict, both by calculations and experience, much of the information required to select pollution control equipment. For the boiler manufacturer to determine this, the specific coal to be used would have to be known. Air pollution control equipment companies and other users of similar boilers firing similar coal might also be sources of useful information. The air pollution control equipment is part of and dependent on the front end combustion process. It is critical that the front end of the process be operated in accordance with the conditions for which the pollution controls are designed. Properly selected, designed, installed, operated and maintained, the air pollution controls should provide optimum performance with minimum expense.« less
  • DOE and contractor emergency planners come from diverse backgrounds and lack a consistent base of professional training and orientation. The complexity of emergency preparedness has increased over time and we are now at a critical threshold. We cannot continue to deliver adequate emergency preparedness programs unless we increase the professionalism of our emergency planners. This document calls for an increased emphasis on the professional development of emergency planners. Such a commitment and investment will see returns in improved and more cost-effective programs, including more consistent interpretation of standards, reduced development costs, more sharing of ideas and programs, improved communication willmore » foster proactive approach, and increased internal and public confidence in DOE emergency preparedness. 2 refs.« less
