Spring 1985 leeway experiment by Lewis Nash( Book )

2 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Coast Guard R and DC and Florida Atlantic University (FAU) conducted an experiment off the east coast of Florida during March and April 1985 in order to determine the leeway of various craft common in Search and Rescue (SAR) situations. Leeway, defined as the response of a survivor craft to the effect of wind alone, is an important component of the total drift calculation for a survivor craft. Other components are the sea current, tidal current, and wind-driven current. Leeway data will be utilized by search planners to predict the movement of various search targets. The search targets evaluated were three types of 4-man life rafts, one 6-man life raft, and three types of small boats (less than 21 feet in length). This report presents results of the R and DC's statistical analysis. Results of FAU's use of the data to calibrate and test a numerical model are presented separately, DOT/OST/P-34/87/058, August 1986. Leeway was calculated as the difference between the test craft's velocity and the average current of the upper three feet of the water column. The oceanic surface current at the test craft was determined from an array of drifters surrounding the test craft. The drifters and small craft were tracked by a Microwave Tracking System (MTS). The wind was measured onboard the small craft at a height of six feet above the ocean surface. The apparent wind relative to the current at the raft was used in the analysis. life raft, drogue, leeway

Modern Baptists a novel by James Wilcox( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This novel is] the tale of Bobby Pickens, assistant manager of Sonny Boy Bargain Store, who gains a new lease on life, though he almost comes to regret it. Bobby's handsome half brother F.X. - ex-con, ex-actor, and ex-husband three times over - moves in, and things go awry all over town. Mistaken identities; entangled romances with Burma, Toinette, and Donna Lee; assault and battery; charges of degeneracy; a nervous breakdown - it all comes to a head at a Christmas Eve party in a cabin on a poisoned swamp. This is sly, madcap romp that offers readers the gift of abundant laughter. -Back cover
J. Development of Methods to Account for HCl and Cl2 from Open Burning and Characterization of Emissions from the Open Burning of Three Selected Propellants( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An important class of propellant, explosive, and pyrotechnic (PEP) material that requires disposal permits is the chlorine-containing perchlorate explosives and propellants. Characterization of the recovery of HCl and Cl2 is necessary to the development of emission factors for these materials. While characterization of emissions for many energetic materials (EMs) has proven feasible, chlorine-containing PEP materials pose a special challenge. Methods to account for chlorine emissions in PEP materials from open burning (OB) have eluded scientists except in small-scale bench tests

Co-synthesis of LiFePO4 and Carbon Nanotubes( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The rate capabilities of LiFePO{sub 4} composites are dependent on the structure of the carbon that coats the powders, formed during co-calcination with carbon containing precursors. The addition of readily decomposed pyromellitic acid and graphitization catalysts such as ferrocene during synthesis results in coatings with low D/G (disordered/graphene) ratios, while maintaining the carbon content of the powders below 2 wt. %. This is important to avoid adversely affecting the tap density. The good correlation between the pressed pellet conductivities of the LiFePO{sub 4}/C composites and their rate capability in lithium cells is further confirmation of the importance of the carbon structure, because graphitic carbons generally have higher conductivities than disordered ones
