Title: The journey so far and the road ahead

Abstract

The talk gives a brief intoduction to the experimental setups and nuclear structure studies at IUAC in the past. Salient features of the setup of 24 Compton suppressed clover detectors known as Indian National Gamma Array (INGA) commissioned at IUAC and some of the recent works pursued by the nuclear structure group are discussed. The talk also gives a brief overview of the experimental facilities that will be available for nuclear structure studies at IUAC in near future.

  • Mr. Sawhill, former FEA Administrator, states that the US is no closer to a coherent, effective energy policy than at the beginning of 1974. Except for the strip mining bill and the bill opening up the naval petroleum reserves to production, no major energy legislation has moved through Congress and nothing has been enacted. Congress and the Administration remain deadlocked over energy pricing policy. It has been suggested that the current situation is not wholly undesirable. The argument is that the economy is recovering more rapidly than if the excise tax proposals of the President had been adopted and thatmore » energy development is proceeding more rapidly than if some of the proposals considered by the Congress were enacted, saying then, that the country is better off without either executive or legislative actions. Mr. Sawhill rejects this argument, and states that it is imperative that the government provide the leadership to solve the serious energy problems now. This paper reviews the current energy situation, outlines some constraints on the country's ability to find solutions, and discusses some areas where government involvement is essential. (MCW)« less
  • Regardless of what software vendors want to do, in the end, it is the user, through his/her choices of software products, who will decide what the software of the petroleum-engineering industry will look like. In this article, the author has looked at several items that will impact the future of petroleum-engineering software. Out of these, two will stand out: (1) the adoption of a single integrated dynamic reservoir model and (2) the move to a client/server architecture. However, the biggest challenge for both vendors and users will be to manage change. This will require users to participate more actively inmore » the development of new technology and to be willing to pay for it, and it will require vendors to adopt standards more readily.« less
  • This article discusses the global automobile explosion of the future and its potential effects on the quality of human life and the sustainability of all life. Discussed in some detail are the rush of the auto industry to take advantage of new market and the socio-economic reasons why the market for automobiles is increasing globally.
  • An expert panel has concluded that new high-energy, high-power batteries for electric vehicles could be in commercial production within five years. Such batteries are expected to provide realistic vehicle driving ranges exceeding 100 miles and acceleration matching that of all but high-powered internal combustion automobiles. The panel`s assessment of the performance and availability of advanced EV batteries was chartered by the California Air Resources Board to support its reexamination of a precedent-setting regulation requiring the sale of zero-emission vehicles beginning in 1998. A member of EPRI`s senior staff served on the advisory panel.
