Spills of emulsified fuels : risks and response by National Research Council( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spills of Emulsified Fuels: Risks and Response is part of an evolving body of work conducted by the National Research Council (NRC) to help inform debate and decision-making regarding the ecological consequences of releases associated with the widespread use of fossil fuels. Like earlier NRC reports, it attempts to understand the chemical, physical, and biological behavior of a complex mix of compounds that make up various petroleum hydrocarbon-based fuels. The specific risk factors presented by emulsified fuels are difficult to characterize, mainly because there have been no spills of emulsified fuels to date, and thus there is little practical experience with these products
Key transportation indicators : summary of a workshop by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of the Worksshop on Transportation Indicators was to discuss issues relating to transportation indicators and provide the Bureau of Transportation Statistics with new ideas for issues to address."--Page 1
Going the distance : the safe transport of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste in the United States by Committee on Transportation of Radioactive Waste( )

6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new report from the National Research Council's Nuclear and Radiation Studies Board (NRSB) and the Transportation Research Board reviews the risks and technical and societal concerns for the transport of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste in the United States. Shipments are expected to increase as the U.S. Department of Energy opens a repository for spent fuel and high-level waste at Yucca Mountain, and the commercial nuclear industry considers constructing a facility in Utah for temporary storage of spent fuel from some of its nuclear waste plants. The report concludes that there are no fundamental technical barriers to the safe transport of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive and the radiological risks of transport are well understood and generally low. However, there are a number of challenges that must be addressed before large-quantity shipping programs can be implemented successfully. Among these are managing "social" risks. The report does not provide an examination of the security of shipments against malevolent acts but recommends that such an examination be carried out

Effectiveness and impact of corporate average fuel economy (CAFE) standards by Committee on the Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy CAFE Standards Staff National Research Council( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academy Press, based in Washington, D.C., presents the full text of a book entitled "Effectiveness and Impact of Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards," authored by the Transportation Research Board and originally published in 2001. The Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) program requires automobile manufacturers to increase the sales-weighted average fuel economy of the passenger car and light-duty truck fleets sold in the United States. The book highlights technologies for improving the fuel economy, the impact of a more fuel efficient fleet, and potential modifications and alternatives to CAFE

Technologies and approaches to reducing the fuel consumption of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1,325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Technologies and Approaches to Reducing the Fuel Consumption of Medium- and Heavy-Duty Vehicles evaluates various technologies and methods that could improve the fuel economy of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, such as tractor-trailers, transit buses, and work trucks. The book also recommends approaches that federal agencies could use to regulate these vehicles' fuel consumption. Currently there are no fuel consumption standards for such vehicles, which account for about 26 percent of the transportation fuel used in the U.S. The miles-per-gallon measure used to regulate the fuel economy of passenger cars. is not appropriate for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, which are designed above all to carry loads efficiently. Instead, any regulation of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles should use a metric that reflects the efficiency with which a vehicle moves goods or passengers, such as gallons per ton-mile, a unit that reflects the amount of fuel a vehicle would use to carry a ton of goods one mile. This is called load-specific fuel consumption (LSFC). The book estimates the improvements that various technologies could achieve over the next decade in seven vehicle types. For example, using advanced diesel engines in tractor-trailers could lower their fuel consumption by up to 20 percent by 2020, and improved aerodynamics could yield an 11 percent reduction. Hybrid powertrains could lower the fuel consumption of vehicles that stop frequently, such as garbage trucks and transit buses, by as much 35 percent in the same time frame

Review of the research program of the FreedomCar and fuel partnership by Board on Energy and Environmental Systems( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the institution in making its published report as sound as possible and to ensure that the report meets institutional standards for objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. This is a broad, very challenging research effort to assist in the development of high-risk technologies that will enable the vision of a clean and sustainable transportation energy future
Advancing aeronautical safety : a review of NASA's aviation safety-related research programs by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advancing the state of aviation safety is a central mission of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Congress requested this review of NASA's aviation safety-related research programs, seeking an assessment of whether the programs have well-defined, prioritized, and appropriate research objectives; whether resources have been allocated appropriately among these objectives; whether the programs are well coordinated with the safety research programs of the Federal Aviation Administration; and whether suitable mechanisms are in place for transitioning the research results into operational technologies and procedures and certification activities in a timely manner. Advancing Aeronautical Safety contains findings and recommendations with respect to each of the main aspects of the review sought by Congress. These findings indicate that NASA's aeronautics research enterprise has made, and continues to make, valuable contributions to aviation system safety but it is falling short and needs improvement in some key respects."--Publisher's description

Issues in commuting and pilot fatigue : interim report by National Research Council (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The potential for fatigue to negatively affect human performance is well established. Concern about this potential in the aviation context extends back decades, with both airlines and pilots agreeing that fatigue is a safety concern. A more recent consideration is whether and how pilot commuting, conducted in a pilot's off-duty time, may affect fatigue. The National Academy of Sciences was asked to review available information related to the prevalence and characteristics of pilot commuting; sleep, fatigue, and circadian rhythms; airline and regulatory oversight policies; and pilot and airline practices. This interim report summarizes the committee's review to date of the available information. The final report will present a final review, along with the committee's conclusions and recommendations based on the information available during its deliberations. --
