The evolution of the airborne forward air controller : an analysis of mosquito operations in Korea by J Farmer ( Book )
2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
An assessment of the role of the airborne forward air controller (FAC) in the Korean conflict--organization, tactics, equipment, and operational procedures. The function for which the airborne FAC was initially conceived was strike control. To this was soon added the responsibility for performing visual reconnaissance over the entire front line and for calling for strike aircraft for immediate close air support. With these three functions--strike control, visual reconnaissance, and strike aircraft procurement--the airborne FAC became the focal point of the TACS. The organization, tactics, and operational procedures developed 'under fire and in crisis' in Korea failed to survive after the war. The stature of the airborne FAC in Air Force doctrine and attitudes did not change from 1946 until 1966, when the operation had to be 'reinvented' in Vietnam. (Author)
Applying analytic methods to problems of development assistance by J Farmer ( Book )
2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are several hazards in allocating development assistance funds, such as unintended distortions in infrastructures and the national economy of the recipient causing inefficient employment of the nation's resources, and failure to identify the critical investment level for success of development assistance projects. This paper gives examples of these problems and how analytic techniques can, in many cases, be useful to the decisiomaker. Development assistance problems can still be characterized by difficulties in criteria formulation, data collection or derivation, and identification of resource costs. This paper describes various approaches used by others and illustrates how systems analysis and cost-benefit methods used for business and defense problems can be adapted for development assistance. It suggests methods adapted from economic analysis which can be used to test criteria for validity and identify the scarce resources which should be the basis for costing. (Author)

High-Performance Corrosion-Resistant Iron-Based Amorphous Metals - The Effects of Composition, Structure and Environment Fe49.7Cr17.7Mn1.9Mo7.4W1.6B15.2C3.8Si2.4 ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Several Fe-based amorphous metal formulations have been identified that appear to have corrosion resistance comparable to (or better than) that of Ni-based Alloy C-22 (UNS No. N06022), based on measurements of breakdown potential and corrosion rate in seawater. Both chromium (Cr) and molybdenum (Mo) provide corrosion resistance, boron (B) enables glass formation, and rare earths such as yttrium (Y) lower critical cooling rate (CCR). SAM2X5 (Fe{sub 49.7}Cr{sub 17.7}Mn{sub 1.9}Mo{sub 7.4}W{sub 1.6}B{sub 15.2}C{sub 3.8}Si{sub 2.4}) has no yttrium, and is characterized by relatively high critical cooling rates of approximately 600 Kelvin per second. Data for the SAM2X5 formulation is reported here. In contrast to yttrium-containing iron-based amorphous metals, SAM2X5 can be readily gas atomized to produce spherical powders which enable more facile thermal spray deposition. The reference material, nickel-based Alloy C-22, is an outstanding corrosion-resistant engineering material. Even so, crevice corrosion has been observed with C-22 in hot sodium chloride environments without buffer or inhibitor. SAM2X5 also experiences crevice corrosion under sufficiently harsh conditions. Both Alloy C-22 and Type 316L stainless lose their resistance to corrosion during thermal spraying, due to the formation of deleterious intermetallic phases which depletes the matrix of key alloy elements, whereas SAM2X5 can be applied as coatings with the same corrosion resistance as a fully-dense completely amorphous melt-spun ribbon, provided that its amorphous nature is preserved during thermal spraying. The hardness of Type 316L Stainless Steel is approximately 150 VHN, that of Alloy C-22 is approximately 250 VHN, and that of HVOF SAM2X5 ranges from 1100-1300 VHN [MRS12-13]. Such hardness makes these materials particularly attractive for applications where corrosion-erosion and wear are also issues. Since SAM2X5 has high boron content, it can absorb neutrons efficiently, and may therefore find useful applications as a criticality control material within the nuclear industry
Application of Neutron-Absorbing Structural-Amorphous Metal (SAM) Coatings for Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) Container to Enhance Criticality Safety Controls ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spent nuclear fuel contains fissionable materials ({sup 235}U, {sup 239}Pu, {sup 241}Pu, etc.). Neutron multiplication and the potential for criticality are enhanced by the presence of a moderator during cask loading in water, water incursion in accidents conditions during spent fuel storage or transport. To prevent nuclear criticality in spent fuel storage, transportation, and during disposal, neutron-absorbing materials (or neutron poisons, such as borated stainless steel, Boral{trademark}, Metamic{trademark}, Ni-Gd, and others) would have to be applied. The success in demonstrating that the High-Performance Corrosion-Resistant material (HPCRM) can be thermally applied as coating onto base metal to provide for corrosion resistance for many naval applications raises the interest in applying the HPCRM to USDOE/OCRWM spent fuel management program. The fact that the HPCRM relies on the high content of boron to make the material amorphous--an essential property for corrosion resistance--and that the boron has to be homogeneously distributed in the HPCRM qualify the material to be a neutron poison

Development, Processing, and Testing of High-Performance Corrosion-Resistant HVOF Coatings ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
New amorphous-metal and ceramic coatings applied by the high-velocity oxy-fuel (HVOF) process may reduce the waste package materials cost of the Yucca Mountain high-level nuclear waste repository by over $4 billion (cost reduction of 27 to 42%). Two critical requirements that have been determined from design analysis are protection in brines that may evolve from the evaporative concentration of pore waters and protection for waste package welds, thereby preventing exposure to environments that might cause stress corrosion cracking (SCC). Our efforts are directed towards producing and evaluating these high-performance coatings for the development of lower cost waste packages, and will leverage a cost-effective collaboration with DARPA for applications involving marine corrosion
Corrosion Resistances of Iron-Based Amorphous Metals with Yttrium and Tungsten Additions in Hot Calcium Chloride Brine & Natural Seawater Fe48Mo14CR15Y2C15B6 and Variants ( )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The passive film stability of several Fe-based amorphous metal formulations have been found to be comparable to that of stainless steels and Ni-based Alloy C-22 (UNS No. N06022), based on electrochemical measurements of the passive film breakdown potential and general corrosion rates. Electrochemical studies of the passive film stability of SAM1651 are reported here. Chromium (Cr), molybdenum (Mo) and tungsten (W) provide corrosion resistance; boron (B) enables glass formation; and rare earths such as yttrium (Y) lower critical cooling rate (CCR). Yttrium-containing SAM1651, also known as SAM7 (Fe{sub 48.0}Cr{sub 15.0}Mo{sub 14.0}B{sub 6.0}C{sub 15.0}Y{sub 2.0}), has a critical cooling rate (CCR) of approximately 80 Kelvin per second, while yttrium-free SAM2X5 (Fe{sub 49.7}Cr{sub 17.7}Mn{sub 1.9}Mo{sub 7.4}W{sub 1.6}B{sub 15.2}C{sub 3.8}Si{sub 2.4}) has a higher critical cooling rate of approximately 600 Kelvin per second. SAM1651's low CCR enables it to be rendered as a completely amorphous material in practical materials processes. While the yttrium enables a low CCR to be achieved, it makes the material relatively difficult to atomize, due to increases in melt viscosity. Consequently, the powders have irregular shape, which makes pneumatic conveyance during thermal spray deposition difficult. The reference material, nickel-based Alloy C-22, is an outstanding corrosion-resistant engineering material. Even so, crevice corrosion has been observed with C-22 in hot sodium chloride environments without buffer or inhibitor. SAM1651 may also experience crevice corrosion under sufficiently harsh conditions. Both Alloy C-22 and Type 316L stainless lose their resistance to corrosion during thermal spraying, due to the formation of deleterious intermetallic phases which depletes the matrix of key alloy elements, whereas SAM1651 can be applied as coatings with the same corrosion resistance as a fully-dense completely amorphous melt-spun ribbon, provided that its amorphous nature is preserved during thermal spraying. Materials synthesis and characterization is discussed. Data showing the corrosion resistance of SAM1651 in hot concentrated calcium chloride, as well as natural seawater are presented, and compared to a number of reference materials

Needs assessment in continuing professional education: An interpretive study by Bonnie Bowen Hudson ( )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The purpose of this case study was to investigate the processes used by the Illinois Administrators' Academy to identify the professional development needs of one of its client groups, public school superintendents. A qualitative method was used to investigate, describe, and understand the needs assessment processes at the 18 Academy sites. Participants included Academy directors and coordinators, Illinois State Board of Education officials involved either in the initial stages or in current operations of the Academy, and five district superintendents. Twenty-nine interviews were tape recorded, transcribed, and analyzed. The findings suggested that most Academy sites used multiple formal and informal approaches to identify the superintendents' professional development needs. The identified needs are identified as either felt (learner-identified) or prescribed (other-identified) needs, extending Brookfield's (1988) definitions of the terms. A matrix is offered which suggests the felt or prescribed nature of the source of the needs identification, and illustrates the formal and informal approaches used to identify such needs. Additional findings suggested that the language was primarily quantitative when Academy personnel discussed needs identification and that several assumptions underlie the processes, including assumptions concerning what a professional development need involves, assumptions concerning who identifies needs, and assumptions concerning the use of the needs assessment findings. Other factors which seemed to influence the process of identifying the needs of this client group included factors such as the political and professional context of the Academy, participation by superintendents in Academy programs, the relationship of the Administrators' Academy with the Educational Service Centers which implement the programming of the Academy, and the priority of needs assessment. Conclusions drawn from these findings relate to the effect of both the language and the assumptions on the effective identification of needs, the effect of the Academy nesting within another educational service agency, and the awareness of their needs identification processes by these continuing professional educators

The Use of Carbon Aerogel Electrodes for Environmental Cleanup ( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Carbon aerogel has a very high specific surface area, a relatively large pore size, and exceptionally low electrical resistivity. Such properties make this monolithic material idea for some electrode applications. An electrochemical cell with a stack of carbon aerogel electrodes has been constructed and used to remove a variety of contaminates from aqueous waste streams and natural waters. In the case of non-reducible and non-oxidizable salt solutions, the cell is operated in a capacitive mode. Electrolytic or electrophoretic deposition is used for the removal of heavy metals. It has been shown that capacitive deionization with carbon aerogel electrodes can be used to remove salts such as NaNO3 from water. It has also shown that electrolysis with carbon aerogel electrodes can be used to effectively remove a variety of metals from process streams and natural waters. The exceptional electrical conductivity carbon aerogel is due to its unique interconnected nanostructure and has made it possible to eliminate the need for metal substrates in more recent cell designs
Technical Basis Document No. 6 Waste Package and Drip Shield Corrosion ( )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The waste package and drip shield will experience a wide range of interactive environmental conditions and degradation modes that will determine the overall performance of the waste package and repository. The operable modes of degradation are determined by the temperature regime of operation (region), and are summarized here. Dry-Out Region (T {ge} 120 C; 50 to 400 Years): During the pre-closure period, the waste package will be kept dry by ventilation air. During the thermal pulse, heat generated by radioactive decay will eventually increase the temperature of the waste package, drip shield and drift wall to a level above the boiling point, where the probability of seepage into drifts will become insignificant. Further heating will push the waste package surface temperature above the deliquescence point of expected salt mixtures, thereby preventing the formation of deliquescence brines from dust deposits and humid air. Phase and time-temperature-transformation diagrams predicted for Alloy 22, and validated with experimental data, indicates no significant phase instabilities (LRO and TCP precipitation) at temperatures below 300 C for 10,000 years. Neither will dry oxidation at these elevated temperatures limit waste package life. After the peak temperature is reached, the waste package will begin to cool, eventually reaching a point where deliquescence brine formation may occur. However, corrosion testing of Alloy 22 underneath such films has shown no evidence of life-limiting localized corrosion. Transition Region (120 C {ge} T {ge} 100 C; 400 to 1,000 Years): During continued cooling, the temperature of the drift wall will drop to a level close to the boiling point of the seepage brine, thus permitting the onset of seepage. Corrosion in a concentrated, possibly aggressive, liquid-phase brine, evolved through evaporative concentration, is possible while in this region. However, based upon chemical divide theory, most ({ge} 99%) of the seepage water entering the drift is predicted to evolve as benign chloride-sulfate or bicarbonate brines. Less than one percent will evolve to aggressive calcium chloride brines, and these brines will have significant levels of nitrate inhibitor present. Thus, waste package life will not be limited by localized corrosion while in this region of operation. Rates of uniform general corrosion are relatively insignificant, and stress corrosion cracking is prevented by stress mitigation, and physical isolation of welded regions from corrosive environments. Low Temperature Region (100 C {le} T; 1,000-10,000 Years) Continued cooling will eventually lower the temperature below the boiling point of the seepage brine, thus minimizing the extent of evaporative concentration. Once the waste package temperature drops below the critical temperature for crevice corrosion, corrosion will no longer limit waste package performance
