  • Responding to the widespread need for the geotechnical community to discuss instrumentation for nuclear waste repositories, a meeting was held December 2 and 3, 1981, in Denver, Colorado. This report gives the group's consensus recommendations to aid in making decisions for development of instrumentation for future repository work. The main conclusions of the working group meeting were as follows: (1) monitoring of geotechnical parameters in nuclear waste repositories will be necessary to meet licensing requirements; (2) currently available instruments are underdeveloped for this monitoring; (3) research and development to provide adequate instrumentation will need to be performed under federal sponsorshipmore » by national laboratories, universities, contractors, and consultants; and (4) a NASA-type reliability program is needed to meet the quality assurance, durability, calibration, and time schedule demands of geotechnical instrumentation development. This will require significant financial commitments from the federal sector.« less
  • Issues associated with the storage, treatment and disposal of mixed radioactive and hazardous wastes (mixed wastes) are numerous and challenging from both a technical and social standpoint. Currently, treatment capability and capacity are limited for the majority of the wastes in storage across the Department of Energy (DOE) Complex and for many commercial generators. In addition to the technical and regulatory challenges presented when treating mixed wastes, stakeholders demand a higher level of proof of the safety and effectiveness of new technologies. Often, technology has been developed without regard to the stakeholder concerns until implementation is attempted. A new approachmore » to stakeholder involvement in technology development and implementation was, and continues to be, tested by the Federal Advisory Committee to Develop On-site Innovative Technology (DOIT). The Mixed Waste Working Group (MWWG) of the DOIT Committee brought together stakeholders from around the nation to examine new technologies that, if given the change to be tested and evaluated, offered the prospect for better, safer, cheaper, faster solutions to the mixed waste problem.« less
  • Results are presented of the Working Group Meeting for Distribution Automation and Control (DAC) on the Electric Power System held on November 20--22, 1978 at Baltimore, Maryland. Its purpose was to bring together some members of the electric utility community so that they might reach a common understanding on: key issues and uncertainties to be resolved; the existing state of the art; and specific requirements for further RD and D in the area of DAC. The meeting consisted of several presentations and working sessions. The statements and recommendations formulated by the group on various topics are presented.
  • In this summary report of the 2001 Snowmass Electroweak Symmetry Breaking Working Group, the main candidates for theories of electroweak symmetry breaking are surveyed, and the criteria for distinguishing among the different approaches are discussed. The potential for observing electroweak symmetry breaking phenomena at the upgraded Tevatron and the LHC is described. We emphasize the importance of a high-luminosity e{sup +}e{sup -} linear collider for precision measurements to clarify the underlying electroweak symmetry breaking dynamics. Finally, we note the possible roles of the {mu}{sup +} {mu}{sup -} collider and VLHC for further elucidating the physics of electroweak symmetry breaking.
