Beautiful war : uncommon violence, praxis, and aesthetics in the novels of Monique Wittig by James D Davis( )

12 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beautiful War explores the interdependent political, linguistic, and erotic registers of lesbian feminism in Monique Wittig's novels, querying in particular how they function collectively to destabilize male hegemony and heterosexism. Beginning with the assertion that Wattig expressly dismantles the Classical veneration of la belle femme in order to create an agent more capable of social change (la femme belliqueuse), the author traces the permutations of violence through her four novels, L'Opoponax, Les Guerilleres, Le Corps Lesbien, and Virgile, Non and examines the relevance of brutality to Wittig's feminist agenda. Drawing on literary criticism, intellectual and political history, queer theory, and feminist theory in his readings of the primary texts, the author argues that Wittig's œuvre constitutes a progressive textual actualization of paradigm shifts toward gender parity and a permanent banishment of the primacy of male and heterosexist political and sexual discourse. --Book Jacket

The Joint Expeditionary Culture Gap( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Transformation has all the Services reevaluating the way they think about warfare and more importantly, how they can best leverage technology, be strategically mobile and thus relevant to future operating environment. "Getting to the fight" quickly coupled with sustainability appears to be the "long pole in the tent" for most of the Department of Defense (DOD). The term "expeditionary" pervades most Service's common vocabulary, yet it is discussed superficially not holistically. Categorized as merely a rapid deployability issue, little has been discussed of the cultural issues that are inherent in adoption of this expeditionary capability or mind-set. The significance of this topic becomes clear as Joint Vision (JV) 2020 mandates cultural assimilation. The document states, "To be the most effective force for 2020, we must be fully joint: intellectually, doctrinally, and technically interoperability is a mandate for the joint force of 2020 training, education, experience, exercises this will not only overcome the barriers of organizational culture and differing priorities, but will teach members of the joint team to appreciate the full range of Service capabilities to them." The implications of developing more expeditionary forces for our Nation go beyond getting to a hostile country quickly. The very nature of future warfare demands us to be prepared for conflict before a crisis occurs--across the full spectrum of conflict. The attributes of an expeditionary force need to be analyzed collectively, for there are many inexplicably linked visible components of this complex system. The most obvious are Service doctrine, equipment and the means for deploying. The focus of this monograph is on the not so visible component-the Service's organizational culture. Looking at the historical evolution of the Services through numerous case studies presented evidence

Measurement of flexible wing deformations in flight by James D Davis( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: Adverse flying conditions such as wind gusts are an unavoidable reality and a concern for aircraft of any scale where out door flight is mission critical. In the realm of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs), where relative low mass inertias and low flight speeds are prevalent almost by definition, handling characteristics in such typical conditions are of primary concern. In the interest of keeping the craft volume minimal and autopilot simple these characteristics should be as inherent and unsupplemented as possible. With these realizations and inspiration from sailing technology, the University of Florida developed a thin significantly cambered flexible membrane wing. The flexible wing design passively adapts to the changing flight conditions in such a way it results in more stable and manageable flight characteristics. The behavior and characteristics of the flexible wing have been studied in theories, computations, and wind tunnels all of which are limited to steady or quasi steady state conditions. The research presented in this thesis is an initial investigation into developing a system to monitor and measure the deformational behavior of the flexible wing in flight as it responds to real world aerodynamic and inertial conditions. The method proposed and investigated is one of videogrammetry. A camera was placed on the tail of the aircraft oriented so as that the wing was in the view. The wing was outfitted with tracking points and an angle of attack (AOA) indicator. The system was termed single point optical tracking (SPOT). SPOT was calibrated using the University of Florida's low speed, low turbulence wind tunnel and the visual image correlation (VIC) measurement system. A comparison of in flight deformation measurements to wind tunnel measurements at a similar angle and airspeed was made with agreeable results demonstrating the effectiveness and viability of the system. An error and sensitivity analysis was performed

An Appraisal of Cost-Effectiveness Models Used in the Air Force and Navy Aircraft Engine Component Improvement Programs( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis examines the cost-effectiveness models used by the Air Force and Navy to assist with the decision-making process of their Component Improvement Programs (CIP). The focus on the elements of the two models and the reasonableness of each model's results. A sensitivity analysis was performed on significant input parameters to determine what effect errors in these parameters would have on the predicted return-on-investment (ROI) results. The author concluded that, although the models provide insight into life cycle costs (LCC) of aircraft engines, they are extremely sensitive to errors in certain input variables and should not be relied upon for CIP budget justification
