Friel is widely recognised as Ireland's leading playwright but through the ability of plays like Translations and Dancing at Lughnasa to translate into other cultures he has also made a major impact on world theatre. This study draws on the Friel Archive in the National Library of Ireland to deepen our understanding of how his plays were developed. Brian Friel is widely recognized as one of the greatest contemporary dramatists writing in the English language. This is the first book-length study to draw on the Brian Friel Papers in the National Library of Ireland: the numerous drafts and revisions of the plays, the author's notes, correspondence, etc. These help to provide a deeper awareness of the radical, experimental nature of Friel's dramaturgy and a more nuanced understanding of the plays' politics in relation to both Northern Ireland and the Republic. The book covers the entire span of Friel's career and its twenty-four original plays, from the late 1950s to the present. It addresses such central topics as: Friel and the role of the director; negotiations between the past and the present; the operation of fantasy; the politics of space; and the interplay of memory and history. The book deepens and extends our understanding of Friel's achievement and will be an invaluable guide to students of theatre and drama, cultural and Irish studies

The thermomechanical response of WIPP repositories by D. E. S Maxwell( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Coarsely zoned STEALTH 2D calculations were used to investigate two candidate WIPP repositories. The grid was designed for one hundred thousand years of response with modest computing costs. As a result, the early time mechanical response was compromised by non-real oscillations that could not be damped completely before a few thousand years. In spite of these oscillations, it was possible to see that the dominant effects of stress and strain peaked between one and two thousand years, at the time of maximum heat in the site. This time corresponded to the condition that the surface heat loss rate balanced the heat generation rate. Though the creep strains were quite small, a large volume of salt was involved and the effects were significant. The peak surface uplift of 75HLW was increased by about 25% due to creep. However, the deviatoric stress relaxation due to creep produced large changes in the stress fields. The Rustler layer survived reasonable failure criterion for the 75HLW case with creep, and failed both in tension and shear, according to these same criterion, when the calculation was repeated without creep. The deviatoric stress fields, with and without salt creep, concentrated near the repository as expected and also in the Rustler layer due to its relatively high Young's modulus compared to the neighboring layers. Since the time of interest is so much smaller than the 100,000 years this calculation was designed to examine, it is possible to model the WIPP stratigraphy in much more detail and still be able to calculate the response for the time of interest. A finer zoned calculation of the response of the WIPP stratigraphy to a repository similar to the 75 K watt/acre repository is modeled in this report. In this calculation the Rustler formation is modeled as a five layered formation using material properties derived from data taken at the Nome site
