  • This bibliography contains citations concerning the safety of biomedical radiography. Radiation-protection methods and techniques are described, and safety techniques for specific radiology procedures are detailed. Radiation exposure of health workers and patients is discussed. Safety limits are defined. (Contains 166 citations fully indexed and including a title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning motor vehicle applications for certification by the Environmental Protection Agency. Certification applications are prepared by vehicle manufacturers themselves, who give detailed technical descriptions of the vehicles or engines they intend to market during the upcoming model year. These engineering data include explanations and/or drawings which describe engine/vehicle parameters such as engine design, fuel systems, ignition systems, and exhaust and evaporative emission control systems. Information on emissions test procedures, service accumulation procedures, fuels to be used, and proposed maintenance requirements to be followed during testing is also provided. Citations include the results of emissions testing, amore » statement of compliance with EPA regulations, production engine parameters, and a Summary Sheet Input Form on which issuance of an EPA Certificate of Conformity is based. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)« less
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning health hazard evaluation investigations performed by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Industrial inspections performed by NIOSH as routine surveys or as a result of a health-related complaint are presented. A majority of the citations evaluate potential exposure to toxic materials or hazardous working conditions. Other occupational health issues are discussed in separate bibliographies. (Contains 250 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the processes and effects of radiation curing on epoxy resins, phenolics, fluorocarbons, and silicones. Gamma, ultraviolet, and infrared radiation are emphasized; however, polymer crosslinking by such electromagnetic wave radiation as microwave, laser, vacuum irradiation, and ionization is included. The citations also discuss the influence of radiation induced polymer curing on mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties of the polymers. (Contains a minimum of 235 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
  • The bibliography contains citations concerning the design, development, construction, and evaluation of various anthropomorphic phantoms: mathematical or physical models or constructs simulating human tissue which are used in radiotherapy and diagnostic radiology. The radiation characteristics of phantom materials are addressed, simulating human body tissue, muscles, organs, bones, and skin. (Contains a minimum of 112 citations and includes a subject term index and title list.)
