TMI 25 Years Later: The Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant Accident and Its Impact

By Bonnie A. Osif, Anthony J. Baratta, Thomas W. Conkling, "TMI 25 Years Later: The Three Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant Accident and Its Impact"
Publisher: Pennsylvania State University Press | 2004-03 | ISBN 027102383X | PDF | 158 pages | 1.9 MB

Three Mile Island burst into the nation’s headlines twenty-five years ago, forever changing our view of nuclear power. The dramatic accident held the world’s attention for an unsettling week in March 1979 as engineers struggled to understand what had happened and to bring the damaged reactor to a safe condition. Much has been written since then about TMI, but it is not easy to find up-to-date information that is both reliable and accessible to the non-scientific reader. TMI offers a much needed "one-stop" resource for a new generation of citizens, students, and policy makers.
The legacy of Three Mile Island has been far reaching. The worst nuclear accident in U.S. history marked a turning point in our policies, our perceptions, and our national identity. Those involved in the nuclear industry today study the scenario carefully and review the decontamination and recovery process. Risk management and the ability to rationally and understandably convey risks to the general population are an integral part of implementation of new technologies. Political, environmental, and energy decisions have been made with TMI as a factor, and while studies reveal little environmental damage from the accident, long term studies of health effects continue. TMI presents a balanced and factual account of the accident, the cleanup effort, and the many facets of its legacy twenty-five years later.
The authors bring extensive research and writing experience to this book. After the accident and the cleanup, a significant collection of videotapes, photographs, and reports were donated to the University Libraries at Penn State University. Bonnie Osif and Thomas Conkling are engineering librarians at Penn State who maintain a database of these materials, which they have made available to the general public through an award-winning website. Anthony Baratta is a nuclear engineer who worked with the decontamination and recovery project at TMI and is an expert in nuclear accidents. The book features unique photographs of the cleanup and helpful appendixes that enable readers to further investigate various aspects of the story.

The Boundary Element Method with Programming: For Engineers and Scientists (repost)

The Boundary Element Method with Programming: For Engineers and Scientists by Gernot Beer
English | Apr 8, 2008 | ISBN: 3211715746 | 494 Pages | PDF | 7 MB

This thorough yet understandable introduction to the boundary element method presents an attractive alternative to the finite element method. It not only explains the theory but also presents the implementation of the theory into computer code, the code in FORTRAN 95 can be freely downloaded. The book also addresses the issue of efficiently using parallel processing hardware in order to considerably speed up the computations for large systems. The applications range from problems of heat and fluid flow to static and dynamic elasto-plastic problems in continuum mechanics.

A Short, Offhand, Killing Affair: Soldiers and Social Conflict during the Mexican-American War

A Short, Offhand, Killing Affair: Soldiers and Social Conflict during the Mexican-American War by Paul Foos
October 7, 2002 | ISBN: 0807827312 | Pages: 272 | PDF | 2 MB

The Mexican-American War (1846-48) found Americans on new terrain. A republic founded on the principle of armed defense of freedom was now going to war on behalf of Manifest Destiny, seeking to conquer an unfamiliar nation and people. Through an examination of rank-and-file soldiers, Paul Foos sheds new light on the war and its effect on attitudes toward other races and nationalities that stood in the way of American expansionism.

The Finnish progressive rock association, Colossus, have for several years had an ongoing musical project, in which artists are challenged to create epic songs in the same general musical style as classic symphonic prog bands from the early '70s, and where the music also has to incorporate influences from specific movies. The Spaghetti Epic 2 was released early in 2007, and on this recording the artists were challenged to make music inspired by Sergio Leone's classic spaghetti western "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly". All the songs on "The Spaghetti Epic 2" are well performed and well made, though the opening track The Good appears to be slightly less expressive than the following ones…
