    The present work shows the implementation of the scheme of predictive control IMC (Internal Model Control) in order to control the level of the deareador of a combined cycle thermoelectric power station of (C.C.T.S.). The implementation has the purpose of looking for alternative strategies of control to the classic ones (PID`s) that more efficiently control the variables of interest, in addition to getting into the new control techniques of control. Following the philosophy of predictive control IMC the form to applying this technique is shown, as well as the implementation of this type of controllers. A comparison of predictive control IMC is made with the scheme of conventional control (three control elements PID`s ) used at present to control the level of the deareador in the Combined Cycle Thermoelectric Power stations of Dos Bocas, Veracruz, Mexico and of Gomez Palacio, Durango, Mexico. [Espanol] El presente trabajo muestra la implementacion del esquema de control predictivo IMC (Control con Modelo Interno) con el objeto de controlar el nivel del deareador de una Central Termoelectrica de Ciclo Combinado (C.T.C.C.).

    Howey, G. R. [Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario, Toronto, Ontario (Canada)

    1963-10-15

    Canada's Nuclear Power Demonstration station (NPD), initiated by the federal agency Atomic Energy of Canada Limited, is operated and staffed by the Hydro-Electric Power Commission of Ontario, a provincial public utility. Obtaining and training staff for the station was hampered by the fact that until recently most of Ontario's electricity requirements were supplied by the abundant hydro-electric resources of the province. Increasing use of thermal-electric energy since 1950 created an extreme shortage of staff experienced in the operation of thermal stations. To meet this situation, trained manpower for nuclear generating stations was developed by the following steps: (1) An initial group of professional engineers was selected from among persons with considerable experience in nuclear work, thermal stations and electrical operation; (2) Another group of highly experienced operators and maintainers was selected; (3) The selected groups were given a rigorous training programme involving operation of both nuclear and coal-fired stations, instruction from the designers of NPD and training in the classroom and on the job; and (4) A nuclear training centre was established to select and train additional staff, conduct formal examinations and be generally responsible for personnel quality standards. Independent examinations of personnel were conducted by the Atomic Energy Control Board, a separate federal regulatory agency. Five general categories of personnel are being developed: (1) Supervisors: professional engineers responsible for operation, maintenance and administrative supervision, rotated periodically to increase their versatility; (2) Operators: four levels of qualification depending on the requirements of the job; (3) Control maintainers: four levels of qualification, responsible for maintenance of all instruments, control equipment and electrical equipment; (4) Mechanical maintainers: various levels and combinations of skills (welding, machining, fitting, etc

    The industry of the petroleum has become in the last decades, an user of the Nuclear Techniques. Due to the amplification of activities in some of the technical and economic characteristics of this industry the possibilities of application of the nuclear techniques in the oil sector are proportionally bigger and more important than in many other sectors of the economy. This work was carried out in the Station of Treatment of Industrial Wastes in PETROBRAS (Brazil). It has the objective of determinating the time of real residence of the misture of waste inside the separator by means of radioactive tracer, using the Tc-99m. This has a great economic and environmental importance, because when obtaining the time of residence experimentally in the separators, you can compare with those obtained theoretically, which allows to influence with more precision on the system, optimizing their operation, and diminishing the magnitude of its possible negative environmental impact.

    Full Text Available Encontra-se espalhada pela obra de Kant uma série de teses que dizem respeito ao que hoje é conhecido por hermenêutica, isto é, a arte ou a técnica da interpretação. Apesar da clara e marcante influência dessas teses sobre Fr. Schlegel e Schleiermacher, que devem ser reconhecidos como os verdadeiros fundadores da hermenêutica moderna, elas não são devidamente levadas em consideração pelos historiadores da hermenêutica. O presente trabalho visa recuperar a memória histórica destas conexões, no intuito de chegar a uma imagem mais justa do desenvolvimento da hermenêutica moderna.There are throughout Kant's work many propositions concerning to what is today called hermeneutics, i. e., the art or the technique of interpretation. Notwithstanding the clear influence of these propositions on Fr.

Blue, ochre, red and black pigments of Mexica culture (1325-1521 a.C. / late Post Classic period); blue, ochre, red, brown, pink, green and white of Olmeca- Xicalanca culture (700-900 a.C. / Epiclassic period) were studied. Data about materials used, technological evolution, mineralogical background, cultural interchange and origin was obtained. Environmental exposition of these paintings since their discovering has produced changes and damage on their materials. Therefore, stability of some pigments has been notorious, ''Maya Blue'' specially presents extraordinary resistance to diluted and concentrated acids and alkalis including boiling condition, acqua regia, solvents, oxidant and reducing agents, moderate heat and biocorrosi6n; for that reason its study was emphasized. ''Maya Blue'' pigment was synthesized in laboratory using the processes described by historic sources (with indigophera suffruticosa leaves and synthetic indigo) up to obtain a stable pigment including acqua regia action. Clay matrix sorbs nearly 0.4 weight percent of organic dye, which cover 79% of palygorskita surface area. (Author)

    aerospaziale in ogni fase di qualsiasi sua realizzazione.
    In fase di progetto è fondamentale l'impiego del calcolo analogico o
    digitale, di quello analogico-digitale e delle tecniche di simulazione.
    Nel volo spaziale la guida e la stabilizzazione si basano sull'uso di
    sistemi elettronici che sono anche impiegati largamente nella essenziale fase
    di preparazione al volo.
    Così pure le comunicazioni coi passeggeri e le telemisure sono possibili
    soltanto grazie all'impiego delle tecniche più avanzate delle telecomunicazioni.
    Si esamina infine la situazione attuale per ciò che si riferisce al grado
    di affidamento delle apparecchiature elettroniche in conseguenza della loro
    crescente complessità: l'impiego di elementi allo stato solido e di adeguate
    tecniche circuitali consente di conservarlo ad un valore accettabile nonostante

Este texto tem por objetivo cercar determinados “usos do primitivismo” na arquitetura sul-americana, que coincidem com a presença de materiais naturais, como a pedra e o barro, e de técnicas construtivas pré-industriais. Embora essa presença possa ser discutida apenas nos termos de uma relação com o “vernáculo”, adota-se propositalmente a noção de “primitivismo”, por exibir um impasse (de certa forma indiferente ao vernáculo de uma ligação intelectual, e não natural, com a tradição.

  4. Da Revolução: Arendt, uma moderna?

    Daiane Eccel

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available Em Da Revolução, Arendt aponta para o vigor da política que renasce por meio das iniciativas revolucionárias. Por outro lado, é preciso atentar para o fato de que várias outras características presentes em Da Revolução apontam para aspectos críticos e negativos da modernidade que estão presentes dentro do âmago das próprias revoluções. O objetivo deste texto consiste em analisar os elementos modernos presentes nas revoluções que são admirados por Arendt, bem como os retornos que ela faz à antiguidade, de modo que seja possível contrapô-los e mostrar que, apesar de a autora louvar os feitos modernos das revoluções, o faz tendo Atenas e Roma como referências, já que a forma de participação dos conselhos provenientes das revoluções lembra, em grande escala, a polis grega, e a liberdade pública exaltada pelas revoluções (neste caso, a americana corresponde à liberdade dos antigos, da mesma maneira como o ato de fundação da república americana lembra com grande vigor a fundação da "cidade eterna". O objetivo, longe de enquadrar Arendt em alguma das categorias que seus comentadores já fizeram, está em perceber a relevância de não negar a importância que os antigos legaram para as considerações "modernas" de Arendt, assim como voltar os olhares para essa autora como alguém que realmente pensou seu tempo tendo os antigos como alguns parâmetros, mas não considerando isso de forma inteiramente negativa. Em outras palavras, trata-se de tentar assumir esse caráter presente na obra de Arendt, sem que ele seja tomado como um defeito.

    Tetrachlorohydroquinone (TCHQ) was determined by two methods: iodometry and cerimetry. Tritation with aqueous ceric ammonium sulphate using potentiometric end-point detection proved to be the method of choice on account of its coefficient of variation (CV=0.475%) and its excellent accuracy. Chloranil (TCQ) was quantified by titration with aqueous ascorbic acid in acetone-water-hexamethylene tetramine (HMT), the golden-yellow color of the TCQ-HMT complex disappearing at the end point. This method is accurate and has CV=0.396%. [Spanish] Se cuantifico la tetraclorohidroquinona (TCHQ) mediante una tecnica yodometrica y un metodo potenciometrico, basado en el uso de sulfato cerico amoniacal. Se concluyo que el metodo potenciometrico es el mejor, ya que tiene un coeficiente de variacion (CV) de 0.475%, y una exactitud muy aceptable. Se desarrollo un tecnica para cuantificar el Cloranilo (TCQ) por titulacion con Acido Ascorbico en presencia de Hexametilentetramina (HMT) en medio acetona-agua; el punto final se determino por la separacion del color amarillo oro del complejo TCQ-HMT. Esta tecnica presenta un coeficiente de variacion (CV) de 0.396% y una exactitud aceptable. Se realizaron pruebas de hipotesis para verificar la exactitud de los metodos elegidos.

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available Este artigo teve como objetivo compreender as formas de controle invisível apresentadas nas organizações modernas e pós-modernas, tendo como ponto de partida a cultura organizacional. Deste modo, um ensaio teórico foi realizado buscando respostas na relação da cultura organizacional com os mecanismos de controle, dentre eles foram abordados a burocracia, poder, ideologia e mediação. Dos resultados, obteve-se que as formas de dominação e controle social apresentam-se tanto na modernidade como na pós-modernidade, fazendo uma transição criativa dos artifícios de controle, enquanto na organização burocrática os controles invisíveis estão nos aspectos formais, como manuais e regulamentos, nas pós-burocráticas os controles são internalizados pelos indivíduos pelos valores compartilhados e pelos pressupostos básicos, ou seja, tornando-se cada vez mais inconscientes.

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available Recibido 23 de marzo de 2009 • Aceptado 29 de abril de 2009 • Corregido 28 de julio de 2009   En la actualidad, el gerente educativo, o director, dispone de una serie de herramientas de la administración moderna que permiten guiar la institución educativa hacia la calidad. Para ello, debe cumplir con una serie de funciones que se enmarcan dentro del proceso administrativo, tales como: planear, organizar, dirigir y controlar las actividades del centro a educativo. Este escrito tiene como objetivo dar a conocer algunos de estos aportes y la manera en que el gerente educativo puede utilizarlos para mejorar la institución educativa. La administración moderna pone a disposición de éste diferentes concepciones, que ayudan a visualizar la forma en que se debe gerenciar la institución. La principal conclusión que se extrae es que no existe un cuerpo teórico único que garantice el éxito a un gerente educativo, sino que se debe utilizar lo mejor de cada una de las concepciones que aporta la administración moderna, y adaptarlas, de acuerdo con las circunstancias.

De esta manera la técnica del hormigonado continuo y el muro cortina, libre de obligaciones resistentes, traerían consigo no sólo una revolución de las posibilidades estructurales, con sus respectivas transformaciones de función, sino también un cambio en la concepción estética del edificio y de su papel en la configuración del espacio urbano circundante.

  11. El materialismo vitalista de Diderot y el desarrollo de la novela moderna

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Nicolás Olszevicki

    2017-07-01

    Full Text Available En este artículo, analizamos la distancia que separa el supuesto proyecto novelístico de Denis Diderot, esbozado en su « Éloge de Richardson » (1762, de su praxis concreta como novelista. En primera instancia, reconstruimos el lugar excéntrico que ocupa la novela en el pensamiento del philosophe y las dificultades a las que se enfrenta la crítica para comprender sus usos. Luego, argumentamos que la puesta en crisis de esa forma narrativa por parte del codirector de la Encyclopédie, específicamente en Jacques le fataliste et son maître (publicada por primera vez de manera completa póstumamente, en 1796,  no apunta solo contra formas perimidas del roman a la usanza medieval y temprano-moderna, como podría sugerir una lectura del « Éloge » qua poética del autor, sino, incluso, contra el propio género que ese texto vindica, la novela sentimental. Esta crítica se ilumina si se la lee en consonancia con las propuestas epistemológicas a la vez escépticas y eclécticas que, desde fines de la década del 40, Diderot defiende, y permite rescatar a nuestro autor como un ineludible precursor, a menudo soslayado, de la novelística moderna.

  12. A metafísica na ciência moderna: uma discussão heideggeriana

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Flávio Oliveira Silva

    2015-07-01

    Full Text Available O artigo apresenta duas teses de Heidegger: a interpretação da Crítica da Razão Pura como metafísica e a afirmação da permanência da metafísica na ciência moderna. Em seguida analisa as objeções que Loparic apresenta a essas teses no artigo A metafísica e o processo de objetificação,para enfim argumentar que suas contestações não se sustentam. Loparic afirma que  a Crítica da Razão Pura não se destina a investigar a quididade dos entes, mas as condições nas quais os juízos sintéticos a priori podem ser verdadeiros ou falsos, de modo que o problema tratado por Kant não seria ontológico, mas semântico. Loparic afirma ainda que a ciência moderna deixou o quadro ontológico da metafísica aristotélica, na medida em que não mais se destina a estudar os entes como tais, isto é, como uma coisa em si, mas tão somente investigar a resposta da natureza, mediante intervenção técnica no curso dos processos naturais e, portanto não há sequer resquício da metafísica na ciência moderna. Essas objeções apresentam dificuldades na medida em que o autor se utiliza do conceito tradicional de metafísica para tratar da filosofia de Heidegger. Argumenta-se que o sentido de metafísica para Heidegger não se restringe à concepção de metafísica da tradição, de modo que, constitui um equívoco analisar as teses heideggerianas em conformidade com a leitura da tradição.  Heidegger se pauta na indicação de que Kant se ocupa das condições de possibilidade da compreensão, isto é, do Dasein, enquanto o ente que coloca a pergunta sobre o ser e é nesta dimensão que a Crítica da Razão Pura é recepcionada como metafísica. No tocante à ciência, o filósofo afirma que, mesmo a ciência moderna tendo abandonado a representação de objetos, ela não renunciou e nem poderia renunciar à necessidade de a natureza fornecer dados que se possa calcular e de continuar sendo um sistema disponível de informação, de modo

    Calixto, Claudia Ribeiro

    2015-01-01

    Full Text Available Com vistas a uma análise crítica das proposições de uma pedagogia dita empreendedora, o presente artigo tenciona trazer à baila o papel da racionalidade pedagógica moderna na constituição de determinadas formas de governo de si e dos outros, segundo as quais o indivíduo converte-se em capital de si mesmo, e sua própria vida, em ocasião de investimentos formativos ininterruptos. Elegendo Michel Foucault como interlocutor teórico principal, o estudo investiga algumas modulações do poder pastoral e da governamentalidade operadas em textoschave de Pestalozzi, Froebel, Herbart e, em especial, em Os anos de aprendizado, de Wilhelm Meister, romance de formação de Goethe. As reflexões assinalam o fato de que a modernidade pedagógica, em confluência aos preceitos do pietismo, forja um nexo indissociável entre querer, obedecer e empreender, convertendo-se em matriz de certos modos de veridicção/subjetivação correntes

    The application of new concepts for the energy analysis of industrial processes, which consider the thermal integration of the process equipment, not only allows to detect energy recovery potentials that cannot be visualized with the traditional treatment of energy diagnosis of individual equipment, allows in addition, to suggest changes in the operation of the process that, without modifying the production, result in the reduction of the consumption of energy by the services and fuel. The analysis of thermal integration is illustrated for the case of a sugar mill, detecting a reduction potential in the use of fuel oil of 75%, and a potential increase of electrical production by cogeneration of 41%, departing from the modification of the use of the steam available in the process, and of the change of operation parameters of operation in the evaporation section. [Spanish] La aplicacion de nuevos conceptos para el analisis energetico de procesos industriales, los cuales consideran la integracion termica de los equipos del proceso, no unicamente permiten detectar potenciales de recuperacion de energia que no se pueden visualizar con el tratamiento tradicional de diagnostico energetico de equipos individuales, permiten ademas, sugerir cambios en la operacion del proceso que, sin modificar la produccion, redundan en una reduccion del consumo de servicios y combustible. El analisis de la integracion termica se ilustra para el caso de un ingenio azucarero, detectandose un potencial de reduccion del uso de combustoleo de 75%, y un potencial de incremento de produccion electrica por cogeneracion de 41%, a partir de la modificacion del uso del vapor disponible en el proceso, y del cambio de parametros de operacion en la seccion de evaporacion.

    Full Text Available Molti studi ormai hanno messo in evidenza la persistenza del fenomeno della schiavitù in epoca moderna sull’una e l’altra sponda del mar Mediterraneo, frutto di azioni di pirateria o di corsa che alimentavano un fiorente mercato. Il saggio analizza la presenza di schiavi cosiddetti ‘turchi’ a Firenze a partire dal XVII secolo fino a metà del XVIII, sulla base degli attestati di battesimo. Sebbene la natura della fonte impedisca una ricostruzione completa del quadro, permette però alcune interessanti osservazioni sui luoghi di origine degli schiavi, la loro età al momento del battesimo, e l’identità assunta dopo la cerimonia religiosa: particolarmente significativo il rinvenimento dei matrimoni tra alcuni neofiti e cristiani dalla nascita, che attesta la possibilità che si apriva ai primi, attraverso la conversione, di un pieno inserimento nella società cristiana.

The available steam not required for electricity generation is used to provide process heat and the new feature is that the process plant capacity is determined to make the most economic use of the steam supply system, and not to match the passout capacity of the turbine of the turbogenerator. The product of the process plant should, therefore, be capable of being stored. A dual-purpose power station with a nuclear-powered steam source, turbogenerating means connected to the steam source and steam-powered process plant susceptible to wide variation in its rate of operation is described.

    Full Text Available Da oltre un ventennio, il tema della guerra da corsa e quello del commercio dei captivi nel Mediterraneo di età moderna, ad esso strettamente connesso, sono oggetto di rinnovato interesse da parte della storiografia internazionale. Soprattutto in Italia, Spagna e Francia (ma anche altrove, ricerche sistematiche hanno permesso di ricostruire diversi aspetti della schiavitù nel Mediterraneo di età moderna: modalità della cattura, condizioni di vita dei prigionieri, riscatti, conversioni. Non solo storici, ma anche antropologi, economisti, storici delle religioni e del diritto hanno dato il loro contributo alla ricerca, tradottosi in raccolte di saggi o in volumi monografici; tale abbondante produzione ha innanzitutto mostrato chiaramente come la guerra da corsa e il commercio dei captivi abbiano rappresentato a lungo un elemento cruciale della storia dei paesi che si affacciano sul Mediterraneo, dal medioevo all’età moderna, giungendo fino ai primi decenni del secolo XIX. Nelle prossime pagine proveremo a ricostruire, a grandi linee, l’evoluzione del dibattito storiografico sull’argomento, in modo da far emergere le questioni ancora aperte e di individuare nuovi possibili percorsi di indagine, che sfruttino in particolare le serie documentarie ancora scarsamente utilizzate o meritevoli di ulteriori ricerche.

  14. Algunas reflexiones acerca de cuestiones de método, inmanencia y evidencia en la filosofía moderna

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Gustavo SARMIENTO

    2014-03-01

    Full Text Available En este trabajo se expone una crítica a la perspectiva de la conciencia, propia de la filosofía moderna: A partir de una errada interpretación del método de las matemáticas, Descartes y la filosofía moderna piensan que el conocimiento filosófico cierto se basa en la evidencia de un principio, la del yo existo, lo evidente dado a ese yo, más lo que se siga de ello. Como consecuencia de este error inicial, la doctrina moderna de la percepción sensible reduce toda la inmediatez del ente dado al cognoscente humano a la inmediatez de lo dado a la percepción sensible, negando que pueda haber otra inmediatez, entendida como la ausencia de representaciones, en la relación del hombre con las cosas, entre las cuales él estaría. Con esto, solo quedan el yo reducido a conciencia y sus representaciones y se niega el conocimiento inmediato de las cosas mismas, desembocando en la doctrina de la inmanencia de la conciencia.

    Full Text Available Os enfoques administrativos oriundos da modernidade estão, cada vez mais, se tornando obsoletos face às necessidades das organizações, sobretudo, daquelas prestadoras de serviços como é o caso das instituições de saúde, bem como de seu capital humano. Sendo a racionalidade o elemento essencial na consecução dos objetivos organizacionais, a ética moderna exige apenas que os trabalhadores se ajustem aos cargos descritos e às normas de desempenho no cumprimento de suas tarefas. A pós-modernidade é caracterizada pela saturação de informação e consumo, pelo prazer de usar bens e serviços, pela ausência de valores e de sentido para a vida, refletindo a apatia pós-moderna. Sem projetos, a vida interior do homem é sem substância. As organizações de saúde estão sofrendo fortes influências deste contexto. Nesse sentido, a ética precisa ser tratada de maneira nova. Assim sendo, nosso propósito é abordar a liderança da enfermeira à luz da ética pós-moderna.

    The coatings applied by thermal projection have an important number of applications in different industries (chemical, oil, electric, nuclear, etc.). The main purpose of the protection by means of coatings is to alter the surface characteristics of a component so as to resist corrosive environments, abrasion and erosion, among others. The coatings can be applied by different methods, but due to the fact that its characteristics appreciably differ from the base metal, it is important the knowledge of its properties when a coating is selected for a specific use.

    Full Text Available Este trabajo propone trazar un panorama general del desarrollo de la Arquitectura Moderna en Mendoza entre 1930 y 1970, a través de los autores y obras más significativos. La producción arquitectónica lograda en el período, en el presente de valor patrimonial, no cuenta con acciones gubernamentales ni legislación de protección. Esto se debe a dos razones concurrentes: La primera, desde el imaginario social el recorte temporal de lo patrimonial finaliza con la arquitectura de los años ’20 del siglo pasado. La segunda razón, la estética y la vigencia funcional de estas obras impiden poner la distancia crítica que requiere toda mirada histórica, aún más desde lo cultural. Vamos a revisar algunos autores a partir de sus trayectorias y su producción arquitectónica, con el objetivo de descubrir las singularidades de la producción local, haciendo aportes para la valoración de estos bienes y por ende para su patrimonialización.

São apresentados estudos que contemplam desde a formação de uma moral universal e estruturalista, com o pensamento do filósofo Immanuel Kant e sua influência para a teoria de Piaget e Kholberg, no desenvolvimento moral de uma pessoa dividida em seus específicos estágios, até os estudos atuais que mostram as conclusões de Bauman sobre a sociedade pós-moderna e suas implicações no âmbito social e pessoal. As consequências de uma fragmentação social em vários aspectos são colocadas à mostra a fim de chamar a atenção do leitor para ter consciência e percepção de sua existência. Um excesso de contradições é posto para o leitor confrontar com a pós-modernidade um quadro negativo de ações presentes, e levar à reflexão do que pode ser alcançado diante do que nós temos atualmente na nossa sociedade.

    Partendo dalle tesi di McLuhan e di André Leroi-Gourhan secondo cui la storia dell'evoluzione umana è la storia integrata delle tecniche e dei linguaggi rapportata alle prospettive filosofiche sulla tecnica di Günther Anders, Arnold Gehlen e Martin Heidegger, si analizzano i mutamenti antropologici in relazione alle rivoluzioni mass mediali dalla comparsa del grafismo ai “mass media della terza ondata”. Sulla scorta di tali analisi, si prova infine a indagare e delineare una prospettiva etica della civiltà tecnologica in relazione al corretto uso e comprensione dei nuovi mass media.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: Aunque género y familia son dos perspectivas complementarias, no se utilizan conjuntamente, por lo que se suelen omitir los condicionamientos culturales que particularizan la situación de las mujeres en la institución familiar. Sujetas a una fuerte presión ideológica, no son los discursos, sino sus contradicciones lo que más repercute en su vida diaria. Realidad que no impide que, en la Edad Moderna, se produzcan cambios positivos y que la práctica social les fuera abriendo esferas de actuación que la ley no contemplaba. Por ello, así como resulta imposible abordar la historia de las mujeres sin. hacer referencia a la evolución de la familia de un modelo jerárquico y patriarcal, a otro, también patriarcal, pero de relaciones asentadas sobre el afecto, tampoco se puede entender el porqué de esta transformación sin integrar ni manejar las categorías analíticas adecuadas.ABSTRACT: Even though gender and family are complementary views, both terms are not used at the same time, and the result is that cultural conditions that makes particular women's situation in the family are often omitted. Under a heavy ideological pressure, the contradictions were what most strongly influenced a woman everyday's life. -This fact does not mean that there were no positive changes in early modern age. Some spheres of activity were opened to women aside from the prevailing legal principles. That is to say that Women History can not be approached without considering the evolution in family as a institution, which from patriarchal and hierarchical patterns turned into a patriarchal one in which relationship is based on affection. This change can not be understood without and using suitable analitic categories.

    Full Text Available El presente artículo invita a una reconsideración crítica y epistemológica de la hipnosis y su relación con la ciencia de la Psicología moderna. En este sentido, busca una discusión de dos vías que trae a colación varias contradicciones presentes en la invocación de esta ciencia en los aspectos modernos. Primero, el artículo enfatiza las dificultades de unir clínica y ciencia; adicionalmente sugiere que las visiones de la hipnosis pueden ser aplicables también, de forma general, a la psicología clínica, que a su vez supone que los pensamientos evocados por la hipnosis todavía tienen una pertinencia considerable para esta asociación, clínica y ciencia. Segundo, el artículo también postula que las instituciones involucradas en la formación de la Psicología tuvieron un papel crucial en la determinación de una visión distorsionada no sólo de la hipnosis sino de lo que podría o no considerarse científico. Finalmente, el artículo propone que aunque el estudio de la hipnosis no muestra una gran cantidad de respuestas en el sentido moderno, todavía es pertinente al invocar preguntas importantes sobre la construcción de dicha ciencia. Algunas de estas preguntas están relacionadas con las deformaciones históricas hechas por los procesos institucionales y por el aspecto científico de la práctica clínica.

    Full Text Available Il contributo presenta in modo sintetico il quadro concettuale all'interno del quale uno studio dei prezzi dei libri nella prima età moderna dovrebbe muoversi, così come i problemi metodologici da affrontare. Nonostante la natura di manufatto semi-industriale ponga il libro a stampa in una classe merceologica del tutto particolare nell'economia pre-industriale, è possibile utilizzare le categorie generali di domanda e offerta per identificare alcuni fattori atti ad impostare specifici percorsi di ricerca basati sull'analisi storico-economica. La storia del libro può essere quindi messa in relazione con alcuni temi classici della storia economica, allo scopo di inserire il problema del commercio librario e dei prezzi dei libri in un dibattito storiografico più ampio. Tra le fonti disponibili per lo studio dei prezzi dei libri nella prima età moderna, l'inventario di bottega di Bernardo Giunti (Department of Special Collections, UCLA, Collection 170/622 è una chiara testimonianza del fiorente mercato librario allora esistente a Venezia. Le quasi 12.000 registrazioni incluse nella lista dei libri in vendita riflettono gli scopi e gli obiettivi dell’azienda. La struttura di questo documento è decisamente complessa, frutto di più di venti anni di uso continuo (1600-1620 c.. Lungo questo periodo di tempo, il documento sembra essere evoluto da un semplice elenco o catalogo ad uso del personale interno a un importante strumento per la gestione della bottega e del suo magazzino.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN: A lo largo de la Edad Moderna los Estados Pontificios mantuvieron una naturaleza compleja, caracterizada por fuertes tradiciones municipales, amplios poderes feudales y la herencia de los ducados que habían pertenecido a dinastías extintas, como el caso de Ferrara y Urbino. Todo ello condicionó el gobierno romano en los distintos lugares. También fue necesario adaptar las diversas clases de justicia —laica, eclesiástica, distributiva y conmutativa— a las circunstancias locales, sin comprometer la autoridad del Papa o de sus representantes. En este proyecto político de dominación del territorio, Roma y su sistema de justicia se propusieron como modelo para el conjunto de los Estados Pontificios. El control del orden y de la administración de justicia, sinónimos de buen gobierno y factores determinantes para mantener el consenso hacia el poder papal, se manifestaron en la adaptación de la norma y de la práctica a la realidad local, como prueba la correspondencia de las congregaciones romanas —la Sacra Consulta, el Buon Governo, la Inquisición— con los funcionarios judiciales periféricos.ABSTRACT: Throughout the early modern period the Papal States maintained their composite nature; characterized by territories with strong traditions of local government, extensive feudal powers and by the inheritance of duchies that had belonged to dynasties that had become extinct, as happened in the cases of Ferrara and Urbino. These characteristics of the papal dominions strongly determined the nature of Roman government in the localities.

Il test PNE ? eseguito normalmente sotto guida fluoroscopica. Questa tecnica pue se valida, pui presentare alcuni inconvenienti, quali l'esposizione radiogena per gli operatori, la mancata visualizzazione del foro sacrale per gli artefatti da gas colico e l'impossibilite di valutare correttamente la profondita e la sede d'impianto dell'elettrodo-stimolatore. Scopo del lavoro e stato quello di perimentare una tecnica alternativa utilizzando la guida TC al fine di valutarne vantaggi e un possibile uso routinario. Materiale e metodi: Abbiamo testato con PNE test in guida TC 30 pazienti (16 maschi e 14 femmine) affetti da gravi disfunzioni pelviche refrattari agli usuali regimi terapeutici. Ventisette pazienti presentavano una relativa integrit? anatomica del bacino e del sacro, 3 pazienti invece erano portatori du anomalie morfologiche dei forami sacrali. Si e proceduto all'identificazione dei fori sacrali mediante scansioni TC volumetriche, a paziente prono, utilizzando un apparecchio TC spirale dotato di una seconda consolle per le ricostruzioni tridimensionali. Identificata la sede dei forami S3, viene preparato il campo sterile e s'introduce l'ago verificandone la corretta posizione con una scansione TC di controllo. Si passa successivamente all'introduzionedell'elettrodo dopo avere verificato la corretta risposta contrattile muscolare e la precisa posizione con una ulteriore scansione TC. Risultati: Trenta pazienti sono stati sottoposti a PNE test sotto guida TC, per un totale di 38 centraggi. In 8 pazienti e stata eseguito il PNE test su entrambi i fori S3. Il forame sacrale e stato centrato al primo tentativo in 36/38 casi. In due casi sono stati necessari pi? tentativi per centrare correttamente il forame. In 4/30 pazienti e stato

    Full Text Available La planeación moderna de ciudades surgió a mediados del siglo XIX; la disciplina buscó orientar su expansión en un contexto de problemas generados por la industrialización en las ciudades. Si bien dicha disciplina se expresó de diversas formas en los países desarrollados, al paso de los años y gracias a trabajos teóricos y prácticos de ingenieros y arquitectos alemanes, fue adquiriendo una estructura, objetivos y metodologías propias. Esos profesionales finalmente formaron toda una escuela que trascendió a otros países, para sentar las bases del movimiento llamado planeación moderna de ciudades, al cual se plegaron quienes orientaron las primeras acciones de planeación en ciudades mexicanas, desde los inicios del siglo XX. Lamentablemente, los tratados de urbanismo abordan poco o de manera tangencial ese origen, pese a que los aportes en su tiempo fueron resaltados por profesionales europeos, norteamericanos y mexicanos.

    Fonnesu, Luca

    2008-12-01

    Full Text Available This paper addresses the traditional distinction between commands and advices in modern practical philosophy as doctrine of duties. The distinction plays an essential role in Christian Thomasius’ thought for his differentiation between distinct spheres of practical life, iustum, honestum and decorum, i. e. the spheres of law (iustum, proper ethics (honestum and incoercible external behaviour – with ethical meaning –, including good manners (decorum. In Kant’s practical philosophy, the distinction between commands and counsels corresponds to the distinction between morality and prudence as pursuit of happiness. Moral life is ruled by moral law and by the idea of duty, that organizes in its own perspective the other aspects of practical activity and the different kinds of duties. As time passed, Kant is more and more interested to the historical realization of morality as Moralisierung through promotion of its external conditions such as pacific coexistence through the juridical law and improvement of intersubjective relations through Zivilisierung and good manners. Kant’s and eighteenth century’s doctrine of duties leave no space for a morality beyond duty as supererogation, a concept that has received a new attention in contemporary moral debate and can still be discussed in a Kantian perspective.

    Full Text Available A medicina moderna tem realizado muitas coisas nos campos de doenças infecciosas e de emergências para assistir a cura. Na maior parte dos outros campos, ela visa, sobretudo, ao controle, que é outro nome para o tratamento paliativo. A farmacologia, na qual se inclui a psicofarmacologia, é igualmente dirigida ao controle e ao alívio. Está na hora de profissionais da área e pesquisadores voltarem-se decisivamente para a prevenção e para a cura. Ademais, o outro grande desafio da medicina moderna é a longevidade aliada ao bem-estar. Avanços em vacinas contra hipertensão, diabetes, câncer etc. merecem atenção, bem como o papel da meditação, yoga, espiritualidade etc. na prevenção de doenças em vários níveis. Pesquisas sobre longevidade, mudanças no estilo de vida e centenários saudáveis merecem um exame especialmente minucioso na busca dos fatores que contribuem para a longevidade com bem-estar. Um olhar de perto para a medicina complementar e alternativa é necessário para encontrar modelos apropriados que esta possa vir a ter, à parte seus grandes discursos ou sua hostilidade para com o cuidado médico tradicional. A medicina é uma manifestação do Eros humano, e não deve tornar-se instrumento de seu Tanatos. Ela deve realizar seu verdadeiro potencial, de forma que Eros prevaleça, e Tanatos prevaleça apenas finalmente, não prematuramente.

In addition, receipt in 2004 of $8.1 million against earlier target years allowed the Secretariat to reinstate, during the second quarter of the year, programme budgets which had been curtailed as a result of the lower than expected resources received in 2003. During the year, the Secretariat has been heavily involved in a review of TC processes, with a view to streamline and strengthen them. The main part of the change process is planned to be completed in 2005. While the implementation rate for the programme dropped four percentage points to 68%, compared with 2003, the total disbursements for the programme in 2004 were slightly higher than in 2003 by nearly $120 000. A further challenge to the programme has been the replacement of assessed programme costs with national participation costs as approved by the Board of Governors in 2004.

    Full Text Available No Rio de Janeiro, os primeiros anos do século XX foram marcados por uma série de reformas urbanas vinculadas aos objetivos das classes dirigentes de construir uma capital compatível com o nível de civilidade e cosmopolitismo que permitisse inserir não apenas a cidade, como também o país que ela era incumbida de representar, no rol do mundo moderno. Entretanto, o crescimento urbano não acarretou apenas efeitos entendidos como progressos, mas gerou uma cidade ainda mais complexa, heterogênea e conflituosa, características que cada vez mais definiriam a vida na cidade moderna. Este artigo analisa as fotografias de Augusto Malta desde a destruição dos cortiços até o surgimento das primeiras favelas no Rio de Janeiro, com o objetivo de refletir sobre o embate entre as expectativas de construção de um futuro moderno e civilizado e a apreensão de uma realidade multifacetada que parecia cada vez mais imprevisível.

  11. Los trastornos temporomandibulares y la oclusión dentaria a la luz de la posturología moderna

    José Miguel Montero Parrilla

    Full Text Available Introducción: la posturología es una especialidad de la ciencia de la salud que estudia el sistema tónico postural del ser humano, descrito en estrecha interacción con la oclusión dentaria y los trastornos temporomandibulares. Objetivo: identificar los antecedentes de la posturología moderna y los factores que determinan el equilibrio postural del cuerpo, así como la asociación entre las variables posturales, oclusales y los trastornos temporomandibulares. Métodos: por medio del sistema PubMed, Lilacs y el buscador Google se obtuvo la bibliografía impresa y digital, referida la tema y publicada desde 1995 hasta la actualidad. Resultados: la mayoría de las investigaciones sugieren algún tipo de correlación entre el tipo de oclusión, la existencia de signos y síntomas de trastornos temporomandibulares, dimensiones cráneo-faciales y el desequilibrio postural. Conclusiones: Los estudios relacionados con el tema generalmente han sido realizados con un número reducido de sujetos o con pobre metodología, por lo que no son concluyentes en sus resultados.

    Full Text Available La legislación de la Edad Moderna, como parte del discurso dominante, situó a las mujeres en una posición de inferioridad con respecto a los hombres. Esta discriminación se manifestó incluso en las normativas impuestas al cuerpo femenino. Aquí se analizan dos aspectos de esas normativas: el referido a la necesidad de cubrir el cuerpo de una determinada manera y el que concierne a la virginidad, cuya exigencia es consecuencia del control de la sexualidad femenina por parte del hombre.Law in Early Modern Times, as a part of the the prevailing discourse, put women in a position of inferiority in relation to men. This discrimination became apparent even in the rules imposed on women's body. The article analyses two aspects of these rules: the exigence for women to cover their body in a concrete way and the exigence of virginity, as a consequence of men's control of feminine sexuality

    Full Text Available Este artículo examina la organización y el uso del espacio doméstico de los sirvientes durante el siglo XVII y en hogares de clase media. Relaciona los modelos de cambio arquitectónico y social con las formas en que los individuos describieron su experiencia y uso del espacio doméstico en los registros judiciales. Concluye que, si bien existía una tendencia a separar el trabajo y los espacios de vida de los sirvientes del resto de la familia, una casa moderna temprana no era aquella en la que los patrones sociales rígidos y estáticos estaban mapeados. Una serie de factores sociales lucharon por definir el carácter social de un espacio, una lucha que giró en torno a los conceptos de control y uso en lugar de separación o segregación según el estatus o el género. Los patrones espaciales fueron efímeros, no obstante, es posible ilustrar cómo algunos aspectos de las relaciones sociales de la familia se reflejaron y se reforzaron por la forma en que se organizó y utilizó el espacio doméstico.

    Full Text Available Este texto estudia la constitución de mujeres modernas durante el siglo XIX en Colombia, y ahonda en los cambios que en los años de 1930 y 1940 inflamaron el debate sobre este tópico, justamente cuando aumentaron las reivindicaciones de igualdad entre los sexos, se agudizaron las luchas por la emancipación femenina y diversas transformaciones sociales hicieron inminente revisar la doctrina sobre la educación de las mujeres. Al margen de las diferencias expresadas respecto a la conveniencia de que las mujeres adquirieran el derecho al voto y ampliaran su educación escolar y su participación en la vida pública, tanto promotores como detractores de estas transformaciones coincidieron en proteger el núcleo básico de la educación de la mujer, constituido en el siglo XIX en sus expresiones de ama de casa, madre y esposa. Durante estos años se sumó la belleza al conjunto de deberes de la feminidad, que de don natural pasó a ser asequible mediante el consumo y el esfuerzo acumulados en el capital corporal femenino.

    The effect of temperature and processing time during post-oxidation on hardness and corrosion resistance of AISI 1045 samples treated through nitriding and post-oxidation in a pulsed plasma discharge is evaluated in this paper. Also, a comparative analysis of the mechanical properties obtained with the dual nitriding - post oxidation process versus those properties of typical hard chrome coatings was performed with an aim to propose an alternative technique to the processes of galvanic coatings. The latter revealed that the process of ion nitriding and post-oxidation provides similar properties in hardness and improves the corrosion resistance compared to the hard chrome case. It is conclude that the technique of ion nitriding and post-oxidation is a non environmental harmful technology with strong potential to replace highly polluting electroplating techniques for application of hard chrome coatings. [Spanish] En el presente trabajo se evalua el efecto del tiempo y la temperatura de post-oxidacion sobre las propiedades de dureza y resistencia a la corrosion de muestras de acero AISI 1045 sometido al proceso de nitruracion post-oxidacion ionica en plasmas pulsados. Asi mismo, con el objetivo de fundamentar la propuesta de utilizacion de la nitruracion post-oxidacion ionica como una tecnica alternativa a los procesos galvanicos para aplicacion de recubrimientos de cromo duro, se realizo un analisis comparativo de propiedades, evidenciando que, mediante el proceso nitruracion postoxidacion ionica, es posible obtener caracteristicas similares en dureza y mejores en resistencia a la corrosion que las tipicas obtenidas para el cromo duro. Los resultados obtenidos permiten postular una tecnica que no dana al medio ambiente, como lo es la nitruracion post-oxidacion ionica, como candidata potencial para sustituir las tecnicas galvanicas altamente contaminantes para aplicacion de cromo duro.

    Full Text Available The crisis of modernity is particularly evident in the educational systems of advanced societies. These societies project on school systems more paradoxes and contradictions than they can really cope with. In the face of the deep transformations that concepts such as globalization, information and consumer society, postmodernity or reflexive modernity appear to claim, schools are losing their ability to successfully transmit models of identity and citizenship. This article explores the crisis of the socialising function of educational systems, and in particular the decline of the emancipatory goals this function is aimed at in its bureaucratic, systemic and communicative dimensions. In this way, the traditional strategies of socialization in advanced societies loose pace, and a restructuring is required. This restructuring should be tackled by departing from an eligibility horizon which in turn should be articulated by an ethos of desire.La crisis de la modernidad se manifiesta con gran crudeza en los sistemas educativos de las sociedades avanzadas, que proyectan sobre aquéllos más contradicciones y paradojas de las que pueden superar. Ante las profundas transformaciones invocadas por conceptos como globalización, sociedad de la información y/o del consumo, postmodernidad o modernidad reflexiva, las instituciones escolares están perdiendo su capacidad de transmitir modelos de identidad y ciudadanía eficazmente. Este trabajo explora la crisis de la función socializadora de los sistemas educativos, entendida como un declive sistémico, burocrático y comunicativo. De este modo, las clásicas estrategias de socialización propias de las sociedades modernas pierden su eficacia, siendo precisa su reconversión. Ésta puede ser afrontada orientando los procesos de socialización desde un horizonte de elegibilidad articulado por un ethos del deseo.

Los nuevos recursos alcanzaron una cota maxima sin precedentes de 101,0 millones de dolares; de ellos, 76,8 millones fueron para el Fondo de Cooperacion Tecnica y se recibieron 22,3 millones como recursos extrapresupuestarios y 1,9 millones en contribuciones en especie. Las nuevas obligaciones netas durante el ano ascendieron a 104,5 millones de dolares, es decir, un incremento de mas del 30% con respecto a 2005. En 2007 se celebra el 50{sup o} aniversario del OIEA, lo que brinda la oportunidad de examinar retrospectivamente la historia de las actividades de CT. Al principio, el programa de 'asistencia tecnica', como entonces se denominaba, era modesto: en 1960 la Junta de Gobernadores aprobo 28 proyectos en 16 Estados Miembros. Con el tiempo, la demanda de asistencia y competencia tecnica del Organismo ha aumentado sin cesar: el programa de CT que la Junta de Gobernadores aprobo en 2006 constaba de mas de 780 proyectos en 115 Estados Miembros. En los ultimos anos se ha experimentado en varios paises del mundo un cambio de las posturas respecto de la energia nucleoelectrica. El origen de esta tendencia se puede remontar al rapido aumento de la demanda de energia a escala mundial, el mayor enfasis en la seguridad energetica y una mayor sensibilizacion en cuanto a los riesgos del cambio climatico. Como consecuencia de ello, esta aumentando el numero de solicitudes de proyectos de planificacion energetica, una de cuyas opciones es la energia nucleoelectrica. En 2006, la Secretaria elaboro y finalizo el programa de CT para el bienio 2007-2008 haciendo uso del Marco de gestion del ciclo del programa (PCMF) en estrecha colaboracion con las autoridades nacionales. El PCMF esta respaldado por un sitio web especial, que facilita la colaboracion entre los interesados directos de los Estados Miembros y la Secretaria. En consonancia con la Estrategia de CT, la

    2001-02-01

    Full Text Available O artigo aborda concepções de infância e as liga com a filosofia da educação. Em um primeiro momento o texto apresenta Descartes e Rousseau como pensadores modernos - eles abriram nossas mentes para a infância. Lembra que Nietzsche e Nabokov falaram de modo diferente sobre a infância. Mas todos falaram de uma "natureza da criança", boa ou má. Nossas histórias sobre a infância começaram a mudar porque o historicismo de Hegel, Collodi e Ariés solicitou uma infância feita pela sociedade e pela história. Ela não é boa nem má. O texto explica que a filosofia da educação seguiu esse modo moderno com Herbart, Dewey e Paulo Freire. Esses pensadores falaram sobre a infância e, mais ou menos, sobre uma "natureza da criança" - mas não radicalizaram essa idéia. Mas toda idéia sobre infância é rompida em uma era pós-moderna. Pós-modernismo diz: não precisamos de uma concepção de infância. Assim, podemos ter uma educação diferente e uma filosofia da educação diferente - sem discriminação. Leis protegem as crianças - isso estava junto com a idéia de "natureza da criança", mas a discriminação veio junto - ela veio com o conceito de infância. O Pós-modernismo diz adeus ao conceito de infância, e advoga que, sem ele, estamos em uma situação melhor.

    En pasadas publicaciones me he referido a la necesidad de revisar los planes de estudio y de reorientar la precaria condición de la educación médica colombiana, tan seriamente afectada, entre otros factores, por la crisis del sistema hospitalario público, sistema que ha sido el eje de la educación tanto de pregrado como de postgrado, y por las recientes disposiciones legales que han reformado los sistemas de salud y de seguridad social en Colombia (Patiño 1991,1992a,b,1993a,b,1998.

    Hace diez años Jiménez Arango se refería a los escenarios educativos en los servicios de salud y en los hospitales públicos, de tan mala calidad por su extrema pobreza y atraso tecnológico, que no constituían un ambiente favorable para una sólida formación en las ciencias clínicas. Hoy, en medio de la profunda crisis que afecta al sector hospitalario y al sector de la salud en general, la situación no ha mejorado y, por el contrario, aparece aún más deteriorada.

    En cuanto a los planes de estudios de las facultades de medicina, he planteado que un curriculum adecuado debe partir de la premisa de que el enorme volumen de conocimiento biomédico actual no puede ser transmitido en su totalidad al estudiante y que, forzosamente, se debe aceptar la imposibilidad de formar un médico que “sepa de todo”, mediante un curriculum único y rígido. Más bien deben identificarse los campos de acción que son previsibles en el ejercicio futuro de la medicina, y diseñar planes de estudio flexibles, diversificados y versátiles destinados a capacitar a los médicos para las diferentes áreas de la actividad profesional a través de programas que ofrezcan áreas de concentración o de “especialización” en el pregrado. Entre ellas, la principal sería la de la medicina familiar, que es la versión moderna de la medicina general (Patiño 1991, 1992a,b,1993ab.

Space Station Freedom will be assembled over a three year period where the operational environment will change as significant capability plateaus are reached. First Element Launch, Man-Tended Capability, and Permanent Manned Capability, represent milestones in operational capability that is increasing toward mature operations capability. Operations management concepts are being developed to accomodate the varying operational capabilities during assembly, as well as the mature operational environment. This paper describes operations management concepts designed to accomodate the uniqueness of Space Station Freedoom, utilizing tools and processes that seek to control operations costs.

    achievements in technical cooperation in each of the regions in 2007, describing regional emphases and responses to national priorities. As the Millennium Development Goals remain a key area of focus, the report demonstrates how the IAEA is making a contribution to global efforts to fight poverty, hunger and disease, as well as to support environmental sustainability and the health of mothers and children. Health in Asia was addressed in 2007, for example, through regional projects to train new medical staff, while in Europe, radiotherapy services were being upgraded in the Balkans. In Africa, projects on better animal health and improved crop productivity contributed to the fight against hunger, and in Latin America, activities in food fortification and the determination of vitamin deficiency helped to improve the health of mothers and children. Ensuring sustainable socioeconomic development in the future will depend on a reliable energy supply. Among the energy-related technical cooperation projects in Africa in 2007, support to energy planning helped to train national energy planning teams in Burkina Faso, Chad, Cote d'Ivoire, Mauritania and Niger. Assistance was also being provided to several African countries to help with the different stages of planning a nuclear power programme. In Asia and the Pacific, RCA Member States received support in the application of Agency-developed analytical tools for energy planning. In Latin America, energy security is seen as a priority issue. In 2007, the Agency provided assistance to the conversion of Europe's older research reactors from high to low enriched uranium. In Asia and the Pacific, the Agency provided advice on the development of nuclear power, based on the latest Agency guidelines and the document 'Milestones in the Development of a National Infrastructure for Nuclear Power'.

    The Shippingport Atomic Power Station was located on the Ohio River in Shippingport Borough (Beaver County), Pennsylvania, USA. The US Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) constructed the plant in the mid-1950s on a seven and half acre parcel of land leased from Duquesne Light Company (DLC). The purposes were to demonstrate and to develop Pressurized Water Recovery technology and to generate electricity. DLC operated the Shippingport plant under supervision of (the successor to AEC) the Department of Energy (DOE)-Naval Reactors (NR) until operations were terminated on October 1, 1982. NR concluded end-of-life testing and defueling in 1984 and transferred the Station's responsibility to DOE Richland Operations Office (RL), Surplus Facility Management Program Office (SFMPO5) on September 5, 1984. SFMPO subsequently established the Shippingport Station Decommissioning Project and selected General Electric (GE) as the Decommissioning Operations Contractor.

    Aware of the increasing impact of human activities on the Earth system, Belgian Science Policy Office (Belspo) launched in 1997 a research programme in support of a sustainable development policy. This umbrella programme included the Belgian Scientific Programme on Antarctic Research. The International Polar Foundation, an organization led by the civil engineer and explorer Alain Hubert, was commissioned by the Belgian Federal government in 2004 to design, construct and operate a new Belgian Antarctic Research Station as an element under this umbrella programme. The station was to be designed as a central location for investigating the characteristic sequence of Antarctic geographical regions (polynia, coast, ice shelf, ice sheet, marginal mountain area and dry valleys, inland plateau) within a radius of 200 kilometers (approx.124 miles) of a selected site. The station was also to be designed as "state of the art" with respect to sustainable development, energy consumption, and waste disposal, with a minimum lifetime of 25 years. The goal of the project was to build a station and enable science. So first we needed some basic requirements, which I have listed here; plus we had to finance the station ourselves. Our most important requirement was that we decided to make it a zero emissions station. This was both a philosophical choice as we thought it more consistent with Antarctic Treaty obligations and it was also a logistical advantage. If you are using renewable energy sources, you do not have to bring in all the fuel.

    2010-09-01

    The weakness of small island electrical grids implies a handicap for the electrical generation with renewable energy sources. With the intention of maximizing the installation of photovoltaic generators in the Canary Islands, arises the need to develop a solar forecasting system that allows knowing in advance the amount of PV generated electricity that will be going into the grid, from the installed PV power plants installed in the island. The forecasting tools need to get feedback from real weather data in "real time" from remote weather stations. Nevertheless, the transference of this data to the calculation computer servers is very complicated with the old point to point telecommunication systems that, neither allow the transfer of data from several remote weather stations simultaneously nor high frequency of sampling of weather parameters due to slowness of the connection. This one project has developed a telecommunications infrastructure that allows sensorizadas remote stations, to send data of its sensors, once every minute and simultaneously, to the calculation server running the solar forecasting numerical models. For it, the Canary Islands Institute of Technology has added a sophisticated communications network to its 30 weather stations measuring irradiation at strategic sites, areas with high penetration of photovoltaic generation or that have potential to host in the future photovoltaic power plants connected to the grid. In each one of the stations, irradiance and temperature measurement instruments have been installed, over inclined silicon cell, global radiation on horizontal surface and room temperature. Mobile telephone devices have been installed and programmed in each one of the weather stations, which allow the transfer of their data taking advantage of the UMTS service offered by the local telephone operator. Every minute the computer server running the numerical weather forecasting models receives data inputs from 120 instruments distributed

  15. Hydrogen vehicle fueling station

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    1995-09-01

    Hydrogen fueling stations are an essential element in the practical application of hydrogen as a vehicle fuel, and a number of issues such as safety, efficiency, design, and operating procedures can only be accurately addressed by a practical demonstration. Regardless of whether the vehicle is powered by an internal combustion engine or fuel cell, or whether the vehicle has a liquid or gaseous fuel tank, the fueling station is a critical technology which is the link between the local storage facility and the vehicle. Because most merchant hydrogen delivered in the US today (and in the near future) is in liquid form due to the overall economics of production and delivery, we believe a practical refueling station should be designed to receive liquid. Systems studies confirm this assumption for stations fueling up to about 300 vehicles. Our fueling station, aimed at refueling fleet vehicles, will receive hydrogen as a liquid and dispense it as either liquid, high pressure gas, or low pressure gas. Thus, it can refuel any of the three types of tanks proposed for hydrogen-powered vehicles -- liquid, gaseous, or hydride. The paper discusses the fueling station design. Results of a numerical model of liquid hydrogen vehicle tank filling, with emphasis on no vent filling, are presented to illustrate the usefulness of the model as a design tool. Results of our vehicle performance model illustrate our thesis that it is too early to judge what the preferred method of on-board vehicle fuel storage will be in practice -- thus our decision to accommodate all three methods.

    1993-01-01

    Power stations are characterized by a wide variety of mechanical and electrical plant operating with structures, liquids and gases working at high pressures and temperatures and with large mass flows. The voltages and currents are also the highest that occur in most industries. In order to achieve maximum economy, the plant is operated with relatively small margins from conditions that can cause rapid plant damage, safety implications, and very high financial penalties. In common with other process industries, power stations depend heavily on control and instrumentation. These systems have become particularly significant, in the cost-conscious privatized environment, for providing the means to implement the automation implicit in maintaining safety standards, improving generation efficiency and reducing operating manpower costs. This book is for professional instrumentation engineers who need to known about their use in power stations and power station engineers requiring information about the principles and choice of instrumentation available. There are 8 chapters; chapter 4 on instrumentation for nuclear steam supply systems is indexed separately. (Author)

    and the sample upon which the analytic use of LIBS technique relays. RSD % (Relative Standard Deviation) for LIBS and ICP data have been compared. LIBS values appeared systematically higher than the ICP ones. Also the correlation coefficients, calculated as the ratio between certified value and experimental one, both for LIBS and ICP, were considerably less close to one for LIBS than for ICP. In order to minimize the matrix effect, a model for correcting LIBS data by taking into account the plasma temperature experimentally determined both in the unknown and in the standard sample was introduced. Preliminary results showed a considerable improvement in the correlation coefficients for corrected LIBS data. Once the model validity is proven for different elements used in the plasma temperature determination, which is possible once known all the parameters of Boltzmann equation for experimental intensity spectral line, it is quite general and can be applied on all the samples and for all the elements.

    Hydrogen is an environmentally attractive transportation fuel that has the potential to displace fossil fuels. The Freedom CAR and Freedom FUEL initiatives emphasize the importance of hydrogen as a future transportation fuel. Presently, Las Vegas has one hydrogen fueling station powered by natural gas. However, the use of traditional sources of energy to produce hydrogen does not maximize the benefit. The hydrogen fueling station developed under this grant used electrolysis units and solar energy to produce hydrogen fuel. Water and electricity are furnished to the unit and the output is hydrogen and oxygen. Three vehicles were converted to utilize the hydrogen produced at the station. The vehicles were all equipped with different types of technologies. The vehicles were used in the day-to-day operation of the Las Vegas Valley Water District and monitoring was performed on efficiency, reliability and maintenance requirements. The research and demonstration utilized for the reconfiguration of these vehicles could lead to new technologies in vehicle development that could make hydrogen-fueled vehicles more cost effective, economical, efficient and more widely used. In order to advance the development of a hydrogen future in Southern Nevada, project partners recognized a need to bring various entities involved in hydrogen development and deployment together as a means of sharing knowledge and eliminating duplication of efforts. A road-mapping session was held in Las Vegas in June 2006. The Nevada State Energy Office, representatives from DOE, DOE contractors and LANL, NETL, NREL were present. Leadership from the National hydrogen Association Board of Directors also attended. As a result of this session, a roadmap for hydrogen development was created. This roadmap has the ability to become a tool for use by other road-mapping efforts in the hydrogen community. It could also become a standard template for other states or even countries to approach planning for a hydrogen

    Bergey, M.

    1997-12-01

    This paper discusses the concept of battery charging stations (BCSs), designed to service rural owners of battery power sources. Many such power sources now are transported to urban areas for recharging. A BCS provides the opportunity to locate these facilities closer to the user, is often powered by renewable sources, or hybrid systems, takes advantage of economies of scale, and has the potential to provide lower cost of service, better service, and better cost recovery than other rural electrification programs. Typical systems discussed can service 200 to 1200 people, and consist of stations powered by photovoltaics, wind/PV, wind/diesel, or diesel only. Examples of installed systems are presented, followed by cost figures, economic analysis, and typical system design and performance numbers.

    Full Text Available This article aims to discuss the beginning of criminology in Argentina in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, to understand how it was articulated during the nation-state building process. To achieve this purpose, a state project reflection unfolded in criminological perspective that is based on legal positivism of the period was made. The country was forefront in interest in criminology in that some intellectuals jurists published numerous articles on the crime studies in the first criminology journal of Argentina, Criminalogia Moderna magazine, founded in 1898 and directed by the teacher, lawyer and intellectual Italian, Pietro Gori. The influence of European sociological perspective in Argentina criminology can be seen from a literature review. The examination of some articles published in the journal indicates how criminology introduced in Europe grounds the buenosairean intellectuality. Some authors have linked criminology with social phenomena of a nation increasingly industrialized, proletarianized, politicized and urbanized.

    The objective of this work is to determine the technical feasibility of replacing the chlorine use by another biocida (ionization of silver or copper) non dangerous in cooling waters. This technique of ionization could be used to treat the water of industrial processes in general. The used water came from the make up water of the cooling system of the Thermoelectric Power Station of Valle de Mexico (CTEVM) and residual water of the treatment plants of the Instituto Mexicano de Tecnologia del Agua (IMTA) (Mexican Institute of WaterTechnology) and the Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE). The three types of water used have similar physical, chemical and biological characteristics. The used methodology was the jar tests and by continuous system. The bacteriological analysis is indicated reaching the conclusion. The metallic systems studied in the establishment of the microbiological control in the residual water and make up water are silver, silver/copper and copper in the concentration intervals of 200 mg/l to 3000 mg/l of silver and 200 mg/l to 1200 mg/l of copper. The experiments performed in the jar tests (closed system) were carried out at two temperatures (25 {+-} 0.5 and 32 {+-} 0.5 ) without pH control; whereas in the continuous system the pH was maintained in the pH interval of 7 to 8 by means of the sulfuric acid addition and a delta temperature of 10 was maintained (27 {+-} 5 ). The pH, the conductivity and the temperature were continuously measured. Graphs are shown on the effect silver/copper ions on the annihilation of total coliform bacteria and fecal coliforms the effect of the concentration of the silver metallic ion is given as a figure on the annihilation of bacteria related to iron. It is possible to conclude that the plant systems studied of silver/copper and copper turned out to be a good alternative with a minimum environmental impact to replace chlorine in the cooling systems.

    Full Text Available El artículo se propone analizar la configuración de la trayectoria literaria en dos escritoras chilenas modernas, María Flora Yáñez y Marta Brunet, considerando que sus distintas inserciones en el campo cultural de su época están determinadas por sus respectivos orígenes sociales y las normas de género sexual. María Flora Yáñez y Marta Brunet son parte de una generación de autoras profesionales que entienden su ejercicio escritural como una actividad pública, reconociendo en ella características propias, distintas a otras prácticas discursivas y que debe ser perfeccionada a través del tiempo a partir de una labor permanente de lectura, escritura y divulgación de sus obras. Para las mujeres, sin embargo, la profesionalización se experimentó con dificultades producto de la persistencia de discursos que limitaban su ingreso en las esferas públicas y, por tanto, culturales. El silencio letrado al que históricamente ha sido sometido el género femenino impulsó el surgimiento de voces críticas que leían con desconfianza o rechazo el trabajo de las autoras modernas, lo que las obligó a definir trayectorias literarias a partir de distintas estrategias que posibilitarán su reconocimiento en los campos culturales. Estas estrategias dieron lugar a un campo profesional femenino heterogéneo, en donde el habitus de clase social y las normas de género jugaron un papel fundamental al configurar sus particulares relaciones con el campo cultural y, en definitiva, sus trayectorias.

    The orbit maintenance problem is examined for two low-earth-orbiting space station concepts - the large, manned Space Operations Center (SOC) and the smaller, unmanned Science and Applications Space Platform (SASP). Atmospheric drag forces are calculated, and circular orbit altitudes are selected to assure a 90 day decay period in the event of catastrophic propulsion system failure. Several thrusting strategies for orbit maintenance are discussed. Various chemical and electric propulsion systems for orbit maintenance are compared on the basis of propellant resupply requirements, power requirements, Shuttle launch costs, and technology readiness.

    Jones, Jack A.; Chao, Yi; Curtin, Thomas

    2014-01-01

    Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) are becoming increasingly important for military surveillance and mine detection. Most AUVs are battery powered and have limited lifetimes of a few days to a few weeks. This greatly limits the distance that AUVs can travel underwater. Using a series of submerged AUV charging stations, AUVs could travel a limited distance to the next charging station, recharge its batteries, and continue to the next charging station, thus traveling great distances in a relatively short time, similar to the Old West “Pony Express.” One solution is to use temperature differences at various depths in the ocean to produce electricity, which is then stored in a submerged battery. It is preferred to have the upper buoy submerged a reasonable distance below the surface, so as not to be seen from above and not to be inadvertently destroyed by storms or ocean going vessels. In a previous invention, a phase change material (PCM) is melted (expanded) at warm temperatures, for example, 15 °C, and frozen (contracted) at cooler temperatures, for example, 8 °C. Tubes containing the PCM, which could be paraffin such as pentadecane, would be inserted into a container filled with hydraulic oil. When the PCM is melted (expanded), it pushes the oil out into a container that is pressurized to about 3,000 psi (approx equals 20.7 MPa). When a valve is opened, the high-pressure oil passes through a hydraulic motor, which turns a generator and charges a battery. The low-pressure oil is finally reabsorbed into the PCM canister when the PCM tubes are frozen (contracted). Some of the electricity produced could be used to control an external bladder or a motor to the tether line, such that depth cycling is continued for a very long period of time. Alternatively, after the electricity is generated by the hydraulic motor, the exiting low-pressure oil from the hydraulic motor could be vented directly to an external bladder on the AUV, such that filling of the bladder

Dermoscopy of each macule revealed a parallel ridge pattern of homogenous reddish-brown pigment. We propose that these lesions were induced by repetitive trauma from a Sony PlayStation 3 (Sony Corporation, Tokyo, Japan) vibration feedback controller. The lesions completely resolved following abstinence from gaming over a number of weeks. Although the parallel ridge pattern is typically the hallmark for early acral lentiginous melanoma, it may be observed in a limited number of benign entities, including subcorneal haematoma.

  17. Tether applications for space station

    1986-01-01

    A wide variety of space station applications for tethers were reviewed. Many will affect the operation of the station itself while others are in the category of research or scientific platforms. One of the most expensive aspects of operating the space station will be the continuing shuttle traffic to transport logistic supplies and payloads to the space station. If a means can be found to use tethers to improve the efficiency of that transportation operation, it will increase the operating efficiency of the system and reduce the overall cost of the space station. The concept studied consists of using a tether to lower the shuttle from the space station. This results in a transfer of angular momentum and energy from the orbiter to the space station. The consequences of this transfer is studied and how beneficial use can be made of it.

    In order to compare three radiographic techniques -pneumocolon, barium enema and double contrast- in the large intestine of the dog, three radiographic series in ventrodorsal and right lateral projections were taken. Six healthy adult dogs of both sexes with an approximate weight between 5 to 10 kg were used. Three enemas were administered 24, 12 and 2 hrs. before the series of radiographs were taken. Then dogs were anaesthetized with sodium tiopental (20 mg/kg iv) and the contrast media were introduced. Pneumocolon was carried out in the first series introducing air (20 cc/kg) in the large intestine through a Foley rectal catheter. Radiographs were taken in both projections, after 5 and 15min. respectively. Barium enema was performed in the second series introducing barium sulfate (18%) in the large intestine through a Foley rectal catheter (25 cc/kg); 5 and 15 min. later, the radiographs were taken. In the third series -double contrast- the barium sulfate, which was obtained from each dog using a catheter, was substituted by a volume of air equal to that obtained from the contrast medium. Later the radiographs were taken in both projections. The radiographic plates of each series were analized comparing the characteristics of: radiographic density, outline and volume. With the pneumocolon barium enema and double contrast, the radiographic density was, in most cases, low, high and inter-mediate respectively. The radiographic outline was, in most cases, regular for the three techniques. Thee radiographic volume was similar in all of the series. From the results obtained, it is concluded that double contrast best outlines the intestinal mucosa and more information can be obtained from it [Spanish] Con la finalidad de comparar tres tecnicas radiograficas del intestino grueso del perro -neumocolon, enema baritado y doble contraste-, se tomaron tres series radiograficas en proyeccion ventrodorsal y lateral derecha en 6 perros adultos, de 5 a 10 kg de peso, que

    Draper Station Analysis Tool (DSAT) is a computer program, built on commercially available software, for simulating and analyzing complex dynamic systems. Heretofore used in designing and verifying guidance, navigation, and control systems of the International Space Station, DSAT has a modular architecture that lends itself to modification for application to spacecraft or terrestrial systems. DSAT consists of user-interface, data-structures, simulation-generation, analysis, plotting, documentation, and help components. DSAT automates the construction of simulations and the process of analysis. DSAT provides a graphical user interface (GUI), plus a Web-enabled interface, similar to the GUI, that enables a remotely located user to gain access to the full capabilities of DSAT via the Internet and Webbrowser software. Data structures are used to define the GUI, the Web-enabled interface, simulations, and analyses. Three data structures define the type of analysis to be performed: closed-loop simulation, frequency response, and/or stability margins. DSAT can be executed on almost any workstation, desktop, or laptop computer. DSAT provides better than an order of magnitude improvement in cost, schedule, and risk assessment for simulation based design and verification of complex dynamic systems.

    The Countryside Council for Wales (CCW's) policy on wind turbine power stations needs to be read in the context of CCW's document Energy:Policy and perspectives for the Welsh countryside. This identifies four levels of action aimed at reducing emission of gases which contribute towards the risk of global warming and gases which cause acid deposition. These are: the need for investment in energy efficiency; the need for investment in conventional power generation in order to meet the highest environmental standards; the need for investment in renewable energy; and the need to use land use transportation policies and decisions to ensure energy efficiency and energy conservation. CCW views wind turbine power stations, along with other renewable energy systems, within this framework. CCW's policy is to welcome the exploitation of renewable energy sources as an element in a complete and environmentally sensitive energy policy, subject to the Environmental Assessment of individual schemes and monitoring of the long-term impact of the various technologies involved.

    This paper describes research concerning the effects of human engineering design at local control stations (i.e., operator interfaces located outside the control room) on human performance and plant safety. The research considered both multifunction panels (e.g. remote shutdown panels) as well as single-function interfaces (e.g., valves, breakers, gauges, etc.). Changes in performance shaping factors associated with variations in human engineering at LCSs were estimated based on expert opinion. By means of a scaling procedure, these estimates were used to modify the human error probabilities in a PRA model, which was then employed to generate estimates of plant risk and scoping-level value/impact ratios for various human engineering upgrades. Recent documentation of human engineering deficiencies at single-function LCSs was also reviewed, and an assessment of the current status of LCSs with respect to human engineering was conducted

    In relation to modern demographic trends, evolving technologies and environment-friendly solutions increases the potential of rail considered as sustainable form of public transport. Contemporary tendencies of designing railway stations in Europe are focused on lowering energy consumption and reducing carbon emission. The main goal of the designers is to create a friendly and intuitive space for its users and at the same time a building that uses renewable energy sources and minimizes negative impact on the environment by the increase of biologically active areas, reuse of rainwater and greywater, innovative heating and cooling solutions and reduction of energy losses. The optimisation of a life circle in railway architecture introduces new approach to passenger service. Examples mentioned in the content of this article help to synthesize changes in approach to the design within the context of sustainability.

    1987-01-01

    When built, the Magnox reactors were expected to have operating lifetimes of 20-25 years. In order to satisfy the licensing authorities of their continued safety, long term safety reviews (LTSRs) are being carried out as the reactors reach 20 years of operation. This is the Nuclear Installations Inspectorate's (NII) summary report on Bradwell nuclear power station. The objectives of the LTSR are stated. A description of the plant is followed by an explanation of the statutory position on licensing. The responsibilities of the Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) and the NII are defined. From the examination of the CEGB's LTSR it is concluded that this generally confirms the validity of the existing safety case for present operation. However, some recommendations are made as to work required for reactor operation up to 1992. A summary of the NII findings is presented. This includes the reactor pressure circuit integrity, effects of ageing and in-service wear and radiation doses. (U.K.)

    The microfluidic probe (MFP) consists of a flat, blunt tip with two apertures for the injection and reaspiration of a microjet into a solution--thus hydrodynamically confining the microjet--and is operated atop an inverted microscope that enables live imaging. By scanning across a surface, the microjet can be used for surface processing with the capability of both depositing and removing material; as it operates under immersed conditions, sensitive biological materials and living cells can be processed. During scanning, the MFP is kept immobile and centered over the objective of the inverted microscope, a few micrometers above a substrate that is displaced by moving the microscope stage and that is flushed continuously with the microjet. For consistent and reproducible surface processing, the gap between the MFP and the substrate, the MFP's alignment, the scanning speed, the injection and aspiration flow rates, and the image capture need all to be controlled and synchronized. Here, we present an automated MFP station that integrates all of these functionalities and automates the key operational parameters. A custom software program is used to control an independent motorized Z stage for adjusting the gap, a motorized microscope stage for scanning the substrate, up to 16 syringe pumps for injecting and aspirating fluids, and an inverted fluorescence microscope equipped with a charge-coupled device camera. The parallelism between the MFP and the substrate is adjusted using manual goniometer at the beginning of the experiment. The alignment of the injection and aspiration apertures along the scanning axis is performed using a newly designed MFP screw holder. We illustrate the integrated MFP station by the programmed, automated patterning of fluorescently labeled biotin on a streptavidin-coated surface.

    Full Text Available RESUMEN Referirse a la fotografía de maquetas implica enfrentarse a un desatendido subgénero fotográfico. Si la fotografía como disciplina, en relación con la arquitectura, no ha despertado hasta tiempos recientes la atención historiográfica y teórica que merece, cuando se trata de fotografía de maquetas, la genérica condición instrumental de esta la confina a los márgenes del discurso de la representación, alejada de las narrativas canónicas tanto de la arquitectura como de la fotografía. Rescatar y plantear un primer y explícito análisis, en el contexto de la arquitectura moderna en España, de este amplio y particular legado fotográfico —hasta la fecha nunca atendido y valorado como tal— plantea el reto de ver en qué medida es posible trazar los mimbres de un discurso reivindicativo que haga justicia con la fortuna crítica de ambas, fotografías y maquetas, como canales de visualización de la arquitectura moderna mediante un discurso autónomo que trasciende su mera naturaleza documental. Subsidiariamente esta revisión apunta a una posible historia paralela de la arquitectura moderna española a través de sus maquetas y refiere por tanto no ya a la historia transitada sino a aquella otra —en aletargada miniatura— que podría haber sido. SUMMARY To consider the photography of architectural models is to confront one of its most neglected sub-genres. The discipline of the photography of architecture has not captured until recently the attention of scholars and historians that it deserves. Its generic functionality seems to confine it to the margins of any discourse on representation, far removed from the canonical narratives of both architecture and photography. To reevaluate and make the first explicit analysis of such an extensive and unique photographic legacy in the context of modern architecture in Spain — up to now underrated and ignored — poses the challenge of seeing how far it is possible to sketch out

    . Estos aspectos han provocado que dichos sistemas operen con margenes de seguridad mas limitados y que su estabilidad tenga que ser analizada de una manera confiable y precisa. Tomando en cuenta los aspectos arriba mencionados, a medida que los sistemas electricos han tenido que operar en condiciones mas forzadas para satisfacer la demanda de la carga, los problemas de estabilidad de voltaje se han presentado con mayor frecuencia provocando serios disturbios y en algunos casos, hasta apagones totales. Ante la ocurrencia de estos problemas, el analisis de establidad de voltaje ha cobrado cada vez mayor importancia en los estudios de las companias suministradoras de energia electrica provocando con esto que se destinen mayores recursos para la investigacion de este fenomeno con el proposito de comprenderlo y desarrollar tecnicas y herramientas que permitan estudiarlo de una manera mas completa. El analisis modal es una de las mas recientes tecnicas en estado estable la cual, desde su aparicion ha tenido un gran auge debido a la valios y rapida informacion que proporciona, ademas de su facilidad de implementacion y el poco esfuerzo computacional que requiere. En este trabajo se realiza la evaluacion de la estabilidad de voltaje d eun sistema electrico real aplicando de manera conjunta la tecnica de analisis modal con otras tecnicas convencionales como las curvas P-V y V-Q. Se ilustra tambien la manera en que la distinta informacion obtenida de estas tecnicas se complementa para lograr un estudio de estabilidad de voltaje mas completo y representativo. Ademas de analizar la estabilidad de voltaje para las condiciones normales de operacion (caso base), se evaluan tambien tres distintas alternativas de compensacion reactiva capacitiva con objeto de mejorar el margen o distancia a la inestabilidad de voltaje del sistema. Los resultado obtenidos con cada una de las opciones de compensacion son analizados y comparados entre si para finalmente proponer la alternativa que presente

    When information on plans to build a power station in Trebisov first appeared reactions differed. A 40-billion investment in a town with more than 20% unemployment seemed attractive. But some people did not like the idea of having a power plant located in the town. Around one year after the investment was officially announced TREND returned to Trebisov. In the meantime the investor has managed to overcome one of the biggest obstacles on its way to building a new power plant. The ministry responsible gave the environmental study a positive rating. But objectors are still not sure that everything is fine. They claim that the study misinterprets data and that the ministry did not show expertise when evaluating it. 'Is it possible that a coal power plant located in a town would have twice as many positive effects on peoples' health than negative ones? Why don't we build them everywhere?'asked the chairman of the civic society, Trebisov nahlas, Gejza Gore. The developer of the project, Ceskoslovenska energeticka spolocnost (CES), Kosice is fighting back and claims that their counterpart lacks professional arguments. In the meantime it is preparing for area management proceedings. Trebisov is also involved in the discussion and claims that the town planning scheme does not include such a project. The Ministry of Construction has a different opinion. In the opinion of the Ministry the town planning scheme allows a 885-megawatt power plant to be built only a few hundred meters away from housing estates. (author)

    Stote, J.J.

    1988-01-01

    At the Shippingport Station Decommissioning Project, the central idea of the communications program that was developed for use was purposely designed to be as uncomplicated as possible. The central theme, that was developed and communicated, is that all nuclear plants will someday need to be retired and also decommissioned. The Shippingport Plant, originally constructed as a demonstration nuclear power plant, was now being decommissioned as a demonstration to the world-wide nuclear industry that this evolution can be done in a safe and cost-effective manner. Furthermore, the technology currently exists to complete this process. The new phase of the communications program was initiated even before the responsibility for the plant was transferred from Duquesne Light to GE. With such a change forthcoming, it was necessary to inform local officials of these plans, and the reasons for them. Equally important was the need to inform a variety of agencies and offices in the three-state area of the changes, and the continuing need to involve them in the Site Emergency Plan. This document was also revised in recognition of changing site conditions, as well as the changes in responsibility. 1 ref

    O objetivo deste trabalho é analisar as relações entre o funk carioca enquanto gênero musical e a teoria sobre as condições de uma economia política moderna no estágio contemporâneo, em que a acumulação flexível e os rápidos giros nos ciclos do capital se desdobram em uma sociabilidade e em aspectos culturais de mobilidade, risco, incerteza, crise, fluidez, portabilidade e interconexão. O referencial teórico é baseado principalmente nas obras de Harvey (2006, Lyotard (2003 e Anderson (1999. A primeira seção discute, com base nestes autores, a conjuntura pós-moderna; a segunda apresenta alguns exemplos dos desdobramentos das características classificadas como pós-modernas na música massiva/popular; a terceira discute algumas características do funk carioca como gênero musical e como cena cultural, inserindo-o no contexto político-econômico do Rio de Janeiro contemporâneo.

    Full Text Available La transferencia, a principios del año 2002, del INSALUD a todas las comunidades autónomas que no disponían todavía de las competencias sobre servicios sanitarios de la Seguridad Social cierra un ciclo de gestión sanitaria moderna en España que, no obstante, no ha tenido el dinamismo ni la capacidad de innovación de la gestión empresarial. A pesar de ello, ha conocido, en estos 25 años de existencia, un auge y florecimiento espectaculares. Los problemas de nuestro sistema sanitario, o bien están vinculados a los inherentes a un sistema público de cobertura universal, generosas prestaciones y subfinanciación clara, o son los propios de un modelo organizativo obsoleto con falta de autonomía de los centros y de los profesionales, o guardan relación con las mayores expectativas de los ciudadanos y con la enorme complejidad de la medicina del futuro. Todo ello debe abordarse desde la perspectiva de una nueva gestión propia del nuevo siglo. El Sistema Nacional de Salud es apreciado por los ciudadanos, a la vez que tiene carencias y problemas muy serios; el principal riesgo es una deslegitimación crónica y progresiva, por la que los ciudadanos pierdan la fe y la confianza en el sistema sanitario público.

    2014-01-01

    Full Text Available Os livros de segredos foram um gênero de enorme sucesso nos séculos XVI e XVII, que unia elementos de diversas tradições: técnicas, hermetismo, alquimia, medicina empírica e magia natural. Graças à imprensa, traduções e reedições desses livros circularam por toda a Europa. Os “professores de segredos” foram os articuladores de saberes científicos e populares que se difundiram através de seus livros. O sincretismo da literatura de segredos ajudou a formar redes de transmissão de saberes, em que múltiplos agentes participaram. Como resultado desses encontros culturais, formou-se uma nova percepção do homem como operador sobre a natureza. Através da experiência, o homem podia melhor compreender a natureza e, através das técnicas, até mesmo melhorá-la, para seu próprio benefício. Essa concepção surgida do encontro da herança hermética com o universo do artesão, exemplificada pelos livros de segredos, facilitou o desenvolvimento tanto de um empirismo quanto de uma promessa de acesso ao saber que constituem a base da ciência moderna e do método experimental

    Full Text Available Las poblaciones humanas varían significativamente en su morfología craneana. Aún se debate hasta dónde ésta variabilidad se ha acumulado a través de procesos neutrales (e.g. deriva genética o bien por efecto de la selección natural. Entender los procesos evolutivos que dieron origen a esta variación es una de las metas de la biología humana en particular y de la biología evolutiva en general. Para analizar la relación entre los patrones de cambio y variación morfológica observados y los esperados bajo un escenario de evolución neutral, aplicamos un modelo genético cuantitativo sobre una muestra muy amplia de poblaciones que abarcan el continente Americano, Asia y Oceanía. La morfología craneofacial se estudió a partir de medidas lineales correspondientes al método craneofuncional, en donde treinta variables métricas describen los distintos componentes funcionales observables en el cráneo. Los resultados indican que los procesos aleatorios, tales como la deriva genética, no son suficientes para explicar la variación morfológica del cráneo en las poblaciones humanas modernas.

    Full Text Available La lectura atenta de procesos inquisitoriales de fines del siglo XV y de los primeros decenios del XVI, permite rastrear abundantes noticias acerca del uso de los malos tratos en el seno de las familias judeoconversas españolas en el tránsito de la Edad Media a la Moderna. El recurso a la violencia doméstica es particularmente frecuente en las relaciones señores-criados, y todo permite sospechar que este tipo de actuaciones no debía ser objeto de condena social ni de sanción penal, siempre que el castigo fuera «oportuno y moderado».The careful reading of the Inquisition trials at the end of the XV century and the first decades of the XVI century, allows us to track the abundant news about the maltreatments inside the converted Spanish Jewish families in the transition of the Middle Ages to the Modern Age. The use of the domestic violence is particularly frequent in the relations lord-servant, and everything allows us to suspect that this type of behaviours did not have to be object of social condemnation nor of penal sanction, provided that the punishment was «appropriate and moderate».

Acompanhado o desenvolvimento de sua teoria da modernidade e das conseqüências dessa teoria para a escrita da história e para a auto-consciência disciplinar. Por fim, proponho uma releitura da história da historiografia através dos dois tipos de culturas propostas por Gumbrecht, ou seja, culturas de sentido e culturas de presença. Argumento que mesmo que a historiografia moderna possa ser caracterizada como predominantemente ancorada na produção de sentido, aspectos centrais de sua história só podem ser explicados através de elementos típicos da produção de presença.This paper analyses some historiographical aspects of Hans Ulrich Gumbrecht's work, particularly his theory of modernity and its consequences to the writing of history and its disciplinary self-conscious. Finally, it is proposed a reinterpretation of the history of historiography based on the distinction between cultures of presence and cultures of meaning. It is argued that despite the fact that the elements of meaning are predominant in the constitution of modern historiography, the forces acting in its constitution cannot be explained without typical elements of a culture of presence.

    Full Text Available Las economías modernas que funcionan dentro de paisajes tradicionales van siendo un fenómeno creciente en muchas partes del mundo. El lugar, motivo del presente estudio, es Huixquilucan, México, un municipio complejo en el borde montañoso del Valle de México, que la ciudad de México ha comenzado a invadir. La apariencia general y la distribución del uso del suelo dentro del municipio dan todavía la impresión de que la población está dedicada al cultivo de maíz, actividad típica del México pre–industrial. Sin embargo, el análisis de la estructura de ocupación del municipio revela lo contrario: la población se dedica a actividades que no son agrícolas, particularmente tiene empleos en la ciudad de México. Esta situación se describe en este trabajo como un "paisaje de atraso" en el que la estructura de ocupación del campo no refleja ya el uso primario del suelo. En el análisis se plantean problemas fundamentales de persistencia, cambio y predicción.

    Full Text Available O objetivo deste artigo é problematizar o mito da Paz de Vestfália nas relações internacionais modernas, trazendo interpretações alternativas para tal evento e para seus impactos no estudo da história das relações internacionais e nas relações internacionais contemporâneas. Problematizando, primeiramente o marco histórico, o argumento central aponta que a Paz de Vestfália não promoveu profunda inovação nem ruptura em relação à perspectiva anterior à Guerra dos Trinta Anos no que diz respeito aos aspectos essenciais das unidades constitutivas do Sacro Império Romano e das prerrogativas do imperador, apenas confirmou uma ordem cooperativa legal de entidades autônomas não-soberanas. O questionamento da existência empírica de um sistema inviolável de Estados soberanos evidencia, a seguir, as brechas nos princípios de autonomia e de territorialidade do modelo vestfaliano de relações internacionais. Finalmente, as interpretações alternativas do impacto da Paz de Vestfália para as relações internacionais e para seu estudo indicam que a igualdade formal entre os Estados intensifica dificuldades na resposta às diferenças na cultura, na religião e no modo de vida.

    Full Text Available O objetivo do presente ensaio é fornecer uma leitura sobre os resultados do clássico experimento de Stanley Milgram em torno da obediência à autoridade a partir de algumas categorias extraídas dos estudos teóricos do sociólogo Anthony Giddens e da filósofa Hannah Arendt. O texto está estruturado em torno de dois aspectos centrais. O primeiro afirma o contexto das tendências culturais e as características das instituições modernas como fatores decisivos para a compreensão dos resultados experimentais. Enfatiza, para tanto, a modalidade de confiança que os sistemas sociais, como os sistemas peritos, instauram na vida hodierna, capaz de produzir uma peculiar subordinação ao conhecimento científico e técnico, concomitante a uma plena desinformação sobre seus princípios de funcionamento. O segundo aspecto do artigo visa realçar a importância da responsabilidade moral dos sujeitos experimentais, propondo, com base nas reflexões de Hannah Arendt, o deslocamento do eixo central da análise do experimento da categoria obediência para a categoria consentimento.

  1. Dualidade e dicotomia da geografia moderna: a especificidade científica e o debate recente no âmbito da geografia brasileira

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco MENDONÇA

    1998-12-01

    Full Text Available A geografia moderna nasceu com expressiva característica dualística, evidenciada pelo tratamento da natureza por um lado e, por outro, pelo da sociedade e de suas dinâmicas. Com o aprofundamento destes dois ramos no século XX e com o desenvolvimento do pensamento crítico dentro da ciência, através do qual ressaltou-se o caráter ideológico do pensamento científico, o dualismo geográfico foi alçado à condição de dicotomia. Dualidade e dicotomia da geografia tornaram-se então, sobretudo depois da década de cinquenta, temas de acirrados debates na academia e nas entidades de congregação de geógrafos. Este tipo de debate intensificou-se dentro da geografia brasileira a partir do final dos anos setenta, tendo promovido um considerável distanciamento entre geógrafos físicos e geógrafos humanos.

  3. Seismometer array station processors

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Key, F.A.; Lea, T.G.; Douglas, A.

    1977-01-01

    A description is given of the design, construction and initial testing of two types of Seismometer Array Station Processor (SASP), one to work with data stored on magnetic tape in analogue form, the other with data in digital form. The purpose of a SASP is to detect the short period P waves recorded by a UK-type array of 20 seismometers and to edit these on to a a digital library tape or disc. The edited data are then processed to obtain a rough location for the source and to produce seismograms (after optimum processing) for analysis by a seismologist. SASPs are an important component in the scheme for monitoring underground explosions advocated by the UK in the Conference of the Committee on Disarmament. With digital input a SASP can operate at 30 times real time using a linear detection process and at 20 times real time using the log detector of Weichert. Although the log detector is slower, it has the advantage over the linear detector that signals with lower signal-to-noise ratio can be detected and spurious large amplitudes are less likely to produce a detection. It is recommended, therefore, that where possible array data should be recorded in digital form for input to a SASP and that the log detector of Weichert be used. Trial runs show that a SASP is capable of detecting signals down to signal-to-noise ratios of about two with very few false detections, and at mid-continental array sites it should be capable of detecting most, if not all, the signals with magnitude above msub(b) 4.5; the UK argues that, given a suitable network, it is realistic to hope that sources of this magnitude and above can be detected and identified by seismological means alone.

  4. The Trencin water power station

    2005-01-01

    This leaflet describes the Trencin water power station. The Trencin water power station was built seven years after the Dubnica nad Vahom water power station started its operation and was the last stage of the first and the oldest derived cascade of water power stations on the Vah River. After completing water power stations at Ladce (1936), Ilava (1946) and Dubnica nad Vahom (1949) and before constructing the Trencin water power station, the whole second derived cascade of water power stations including water power stations at Kostolna, Nove Mesto nad Vahom and Horna Streda was built as soon as possible mainly because the need to get compensation for discontinued electricity supplies as well as energetic coal from the Czech Republic. Hereby, experiences from the construction of previous grades were used, mainly as far as the dimensioning was concerned, as the fi rst installed power stations had, in comparison with the growing requirements on the electricity supplies, very low absorption capacity - only 150 m 3 .s -1 . Thus the Trencin power station (original name was the Skalka power station) was already dimensioned for the same absorption capacity as the cascade located downstream the river, that is 180 m 3 .s -1 . That was related also to growing demands on electricity supplies during the peaks in the daily electric system load diagram, and thus to the transfer from continuous operation of the water power station to semi-peak or even peak performance. According to the standards of power station classification, the Trencin water power station is a medium size, low pressure, channel power station with two units equipped by Kaplan turbines and synchronous hydro-alternators. The water power station installed capacity is 16.1 MW in total and its designed annual production of electrical energy for medium water year is 85,000 MWh, while the average annual production during the last 30 years is 86,252 MWh. Installed unit has a four-blade Kaplan turbine with the diameter

    1985-01-01

    Propulsion system requirements to support Low Earth Orbit (LEO) manned space station development and evolution over a wide range of potential capabilities and for a variety of STS servicing and space station operating strategies are described. The term space station and the overall space station configuration refers, for the purpose of this report, to a group of potential LEO spacecraft that support the overall space station mission. The group consisted of the central space station at 28.5 deg or 90 deg inclinations, unmanned free-flying spacecraft that are both tethered and untethered, a short-range servicing vehicle, and a longer range servicing vehicle capable of GEO payload transfer. The time phasing for preferred propulsion technology approaches is also investigated, as well as the high-leverage, state-of-the-art advancements needed, and the qualitative and quantitative benefits of these advancements on STS/space station operations. The time frame of propulsion technologies applicable to this study is the early 1990's to approximately the year 2000.

    Full Text Available Se presenta aqui una tecnica estadistica para medir la conflictividad social a traves del registro mortuorio. Nace al amparo del metodo de valoracion contextual empleado en el analisis de los ajuares funerarios desde 1993. Se trata de una herramienta fundamental para el desarrollo de la arqueologia de los fenomenos sociales, cuyos relevantes resultados empiricos avalan su trascendencia teorica. Tras proceder a su conceptualizacion en funcion de la desigualdad social y la riqueza relativa, se explican las dos clases de conflictividad social definidas: estructural o estatica y coyuntural o dinamica. Finalmente, se incluyen sus conexiones con la ley demografica de Malthus a traves de sus dos parametros: poblacion y recursos. Todo este entramado teorico se ilustra con algunas aplicaciones referidas a las civilizaciones antiguas, abarcando la protohistoria iberica, la Mesoamerica prehispanica o la Roma altoimperial. ENGLISH: A statistical technique to measure social conflict through the mortuary record is presented here. It is born under the contextual valuation method used in the analysis of grave goods since 1993. This is a fundamental tool for the development of the archaeology of social phenomena, whose relevant empirical results support its theoretical significance. After conveying its conceptualization in terms of social inequality and relative wealth, the two classes of social conflict are explained: static or structural and dynamic or conjunctural. Finally, connections with the Malthusian demographic law through its two parameters—population and resources—are included. The synthesis of these theoretical frameworks is illustrated with applications to ancient civilizations, including Iberian protohistory, prehispanic Mesoamerica, and early imperial Rome.

    The scope of this project was changed during the course of the project. Phase I of the project was to construct a site similar to the site at Central West Virginia Regional Airport in Charleston, WV to show that duplication of the site was a feasible method of conducting hydrogen stations. Phase II of the project was necessitated due to a lack of funding that was planned for the development of the station in Morgantown. The US Department of Energy determined that the station in Charleston would be dismantled and moved to Morgantown and reassembled at the Morgantown site. This necessitated storage of the components of the station for almost a year at the NAFTC Headquarters which caused a number of issues with the equipment that will be discussed in later portions of this report. This report will consist of PHASE I and PHASE II with discussions on each of the tasks scheduled for each phase of the project.

  7. Advances in power station construction

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Anon.

    1986-01-01

    This book is about power stations - specifically about the construction of modern power stations by the Central Electricity Generating Board in England and Wales over the past decade. It describes the work of the CEGB's Generation Development and Construction Division, perhaps better known throughout the world as simply 'Barnwood' where it has its Headquarters in Gloucester, UK. Barnwood was formed in the early 1970s to concentrate the CEGB's then dispersed engineering construction resources to cope with the smaller number but greatly increased size and complexity of modern power station projects. Perhaps uniquely over the ten years since its formation Barnwood has managed the construction of all types of station; coal-fired, oil-fired, nuclear, pumped storage and hydro. This book tells the story of these various projects and gives detailed descriptions of the respective stations. However, it is not intended as a comprehensive description of power station technology. Rather it is intended to convey the scale of such projects and the many decisions and compromises which have to be made in the course of managing their construction

    Full Text Available This article attempts to promote a better understanding of early modern Galician women’s situation through an initial rapprochement to the complex connections between written culture and them. In order to achieve this, we will outline the historiographical framework, as well as a global context in which we will take into account the possibilities and diffi culties that women had to gain access to learned culture, together with their participation in the intellectual and physical production of Galician printed works. Consequently, a revision of the latest bibliography about this topic will allow us to observe a great variety of situations; such as the high rate of women’s illiteracy, the problems to turn females’ discourses into printed texts and the development of printing jobs by a small number of Galician women.

    El presente artículo tiene por objetivo fundamental contribuir al mejor conocimiento de la situación de las mujeres en la Galicia moderna a través de una primera aproximación a las complejas relaciones que surgieron entre éstas y la cultura escrita.

    Full Text Available María Rojas Tejada hizo parte importante de un proceso que fue fundamental y protagónico para Colombia al despertar del siglo XX como el de la educación, ayudando a la introducción de ideas extranjeras inscritas en la corriente llamada escuela nueva, que chocaban con las ideas tradicionales en el país. Este papel nunca estuvo desligado de su lucha por el derecho de las mujeres a educarse, teniendo en cuenta que la Modernidad y la introducción de la mujer al mundo laboral le planteaban nuevos retos y le abrían nuevas perspectivas educativas. Si bien el lugar de la mujer en la sociedad seguía basándose en una visión determinista, que permanece hoy en algunos sectores de la sociedad, María Rojas no solo tenía esa perspectiva de mujer moderna, sino que tomaba la palabra en representación de las mujeres, rompiendo paradigmas e impulsando nuevas ideas en torno a ellas. María Rojas Tejada was an important part of a fundamental and leading educational process for Colombia early in the 20th century, helping with the introduction of foreign ideas coming from a current called new school; these ideas were contrary to the traditional ones of the country. Her role was never apart from her fight for the woman’s right to be education, bearing in mind that Modernity and introduction of women in the labor world represented new challenges and opened new educational perspectives for them. Despite the woman’s place in society was based on a deterministic view that is still seen in our society, María Rojas not only had the idea of a modern woman but raised her voice on behalf of women, breaking paradigms and promoting new ideas around women

Poniendo en cuestión la hipótesis de que la expansión de la escuela fue un movimiento ascendente y progresivo, analiza cómo se construyó la equivalencia discursiva entre igualdad y homogeneización en el espacio educativo latinoamericano, y cómo esta equivalencia congeló a las diferencias como amenaza o deficiencia. A partir de dos ejemplos (las pedagogías normalizadoras y el uso de delantales en las escuelas argentinas, discute los efectos de la producción de estas identidades, y plantea desafíos para una rearticulación más democrática de la propuesta escolar.This article revisits the history of modern schooling in Latin America, using concepts provided by poststructuralist theories on identity and its paradoxical constitution. Questioning the hypothesis that the expansion of schooling was a progressive, ascending movement, the article analizes how a peculiar discursive equivalence between equality and homogenization was constructed in the Latin American educational space, and how this equivalence froze difference as threat or defficiency. Using two examples (normalizing pedagogies and the wearing of uniforms in Argentinean schools, it discusses the effects of producing such identities, and posits the challenges faced towards a more democratic rearticulation of schooling.

    2015-02-01

    Full Text Available La matriz originaria de la profesión asociada a los orígenes de la escuela moderna da cuenta de los rasgos constitutivos de la formación docente, algunos de los cuales se han ido superando mientras que otros se mantienen. Es frecuente que tanto los modelos como las prácticas de formación disocien la teoría y la práctica, el pensamiento de la acción. Aún en los currículos más actualizados de la región, los espacios destinados a la transmisión del conocimiento formalizado se fueron complejizando, mientras la «práctica» ha mantenido la concepción originaria que la identifica con el hacer, es decir, con la «aplicación» del saber aprendido en otras instancias. Sostenemos en este artículo que las dificultades o imposibilidades detectadas a la hora de enseñar en el presente se deben, fundamentalmente, a que maestros y profesores no han aprendido el oficio. Intentamos esbozar una propuesta formativa poniendo en valor los saberes de la experiencia, y avanzamos hacia modos de formar superadores de la dicotomía clásica entre teoría-práctica, saber-hacer, pensamiento y acción. Rasgos tales como la modelización y la vocación devenida en compromiso son recuperados y re-significados para la formación de docentes que sepan enseñar en los escenarios educativos actuales.

    Full Text Available Vincenzo Chiarugi was director of St Boniface’s Hospital between 1788 and 1818.Based on his experiences in this institution he produced two works we now centuria di osservazioni, published in 1793, where madness is treated as a unity centered in the term pazzia, which can present three clinical aspects: melancholy, mania and amencia, that remind us largely of Pinel’s alienation. Also, in pazzia we find the firstreference to the conception of mental illness as a clinical and evolutive entity, and 2 The Regulation of Boniface, published in 1789, where he exposes the institutional and legal aspects of pazzia. From the analysis of both works we believe we can state that Chiarugi’s conception is at the basis of modern psychiatry disciplinary matrix.Vincenzo Chiarugi fue director del Hospital de San Bonifacio entre 1788 y 1818. De su experiencia en esa institución para enfermos mentales surgen las dos obras aquí presentadas: 1 Della Pazzia in genere e in spece. Trattato medico-analitico con una centuria di osservazioni, publicado en 1793, en él encontramos un tratamiento de la locura como unidad centrada en el término pazzia, que puede presentar tres aspectos clínicos: melancolía, manía y amencia, que recuerdan bastante a la alienación de Pinel, pero en la pazzia encontramos también la primera referencia a la concepción de enfermedad mental como entidad clínico evolutiva, y 2 Reglamento de Bonifacio, publicado en 1789, en donde expone el régimen institucional y jurídico de la pazzia. Creemos que del análisis de estas dos obras se puede sostener que el pensamiento de Chiarugi está a la base de la conformación de la matriz disciplinar psiquiátrica moderna.

    Full Text Available El propósito del presente artículo es realizar una introducción a la obra pictórica del artista hispano-cubano Federico Beltrán. Nadie como él representa la transición entre la estética simbolista española de principios del siglo XX y el primer estilo decó que se gesta a finales de los años diez, como queda reflejado en el propio título del mismo: Pintor de Almas en la Moderna Babilonia. Significamos además su amistad con los «escritores eróticos» José Francés o Antonio de Hoyos y Vinent, como punto de partida del núcleo referencial de su obra, marcada por un simbolismo decadente, inspirado por la tradición centroeuropea y anglosajona, y aderezada con abundantes tópicos de españolidad.The aim of the following article is to provide an introduction about the works of Cuban painter Federico Beltrán. He may well represent a model in the transition between the symbolist painting tradition within the Spanish Art in the early 20th century towards the déco style which was later developed in the 1910's and 1920's. This model is referred to in the title itself, i.e.: Painter of Souls in the Modern Babilon. Since he befriended «erotic writers» José Francés and Antonio de Hoyos y Vinent, his style tended towards a decadent symbolism of central european and anglosaxon inspiration, presenting neverthelees abundant features of Spanish identity.

  16. La génesis y la evolución de la valoración moderna del paisaje en Cataluña

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Joan Nogué

    2016-01-01

    Full Text Available El presente texto esboza la génesis y la evolución de la valoración moderna del paisaje en Cataluña, desde mediados del siglo XIX hasta el presente. Para entender mejor dicha evolución se han establecido cuatro etapas. La primera etapa, la que va de finales del siglo XIX hasta la Guerra Civil española, es de gran relevancia por su carácter seminal y por la estrecha conexión de la valoración cultural y simbólica del paisaje con los orígenes del pensamiento catalanista. La segunda se refiere al período franquista y en ella prácticamente desaparece cualquier interpretación del paisaje que se vincule al catalanismo político. La tercera etapa va de los primeros años de la democracia hasta la quiebra del consenso constitucional, a principios de los años 2000, y la cuarta etapa, la actual, está estrechamente relacionada con el cambio de paradigma impulsado por una sociedad civil que reclama, entre otros derechos, el de autodeterminación. El artículo muestra que, de una manera u otra, la valorización del paisaje en Cataluña ha tenido siempre una connotación identitaria y de reafirmación de una personalidad propia y diferenciada y ha sido siempre concebido como el resultado de un largo y lejano proceso de historicidad del territorio y de territorialización de la historia.

    Full Text Available Este ensaio analisa o desenvolvimento da instituição psiquiátrica moderna, representado de maneira mais significativa pelo surgimento da organização manicomial tradicional. Nesse tipo de instituição, o processo de controle comportamental opera nas mesmas bases epistemológicas que deram ensejo ao modelo burocrático de dominação, ou seja, de acordo com a orientação racional instrumental que legitima a previsibilidade e a eficiência como princípios centrais. Em contrapartida, observa-se recentemente uma ruptura com tal tipo organizacional, expressa pelos movimentos antimanicomial e da antipsiquiatria, que se deram, primeiro, sob a forma de denúncia e crítica ao telos contraditório patente no instituto manicomial, e depois a partir de propostas reformistas. Em último plano, tal mudança de paradigma ocorre no sentido de uma humanização da interação entre os diferentes atores do modelo manicomial.The essay analyzes the development of the modern psychiatric institution, represented most importantly by the emergence of the traditional asylum organization. In this type of institution, the process of behavioral control operates upon the same epistemological bases that fostered the bureaucratic model of domination-in other words, in consonance with the instrumental-rational approach that legitimizes as key principles predictability and efficacy. In contrast, there has recently been a break with this organizational type, expressed through the anti-asylum and anti-psychiatry movements, chiefly in the form of denunciations and criticisms of the contradictory 'telos' so evident at asylums and, secondarily, in the form of reformist proposals. Lastly, this change in paradigm has moved towards humanizing interactions between actors within the asylum model.

    One of the main problems for the installation of new natural gas stations has been the high investment for compressor acquisition. Out of 900 thousand Reais, which is an average value for the construction of a supplying structure, 600 thousand are destined for the acquisition of the compression system (average outflow of 800 Nm{sup 3}/hour at 20 deg C, 1 atm), approach commonly used in Brazil. To be economically feasible, it is necessary that the fueling station has a supplying volume of at least 600 vehicles/day. Niches of NGV market have been identified to new potentials, where the compressed gas demand is lower, therefore not justifying an investment in compression systems of high capacity. A solution for reduction of this investment would be the introduction in the Brazilian market of compression systems of medium and low outflow and with lower cost. In this context, CTGAS has a project into RedeGasEnergia in partnership with PETROBRAS, funded by FINEP/CTPETRO, to develop, to acquire, and to mount prototypes of compression systems of small and medium capacities. To attend the objectives of this project, a compressor was developed in a partnership with a national manufacturer, MOVITEC, and participation of CENPES, with an outflow of 200 Nm{sup 3}/hour (at 20 deg C 1 atm.), for a demand of up to 200 vehicles/day. Another alternative, for the case of small consumers with supplying demand of up to 15 vehicles/day is being made possible by the introduction in the Brazilian market of two compression systems of outflow with up to 13,0 Nm{sup 3}/h (at 20 deg C 1 atm). The installation of these systems will assist in the economical and technical feasibility studies. At this moment, there are some companies interested in knowing this new technology for using the compressor in their installations, thus demonstrating the success of this project, as well as the wakening of a new consuming market.

  19. The Miksova water power station

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    2005-01-01

    This leaflet describes the Miksova water power station. The Miksova water power station is part of the second derived cascade of hydro power stations on the river Vah. It was built at the end of a huge development in Slovak hydro-energy in the late 1950's and the beginning of the 1960's. It is the second water power station on this derived cascade, which is situated downstream the Hricov reservoir and water power station. At the power station, three turbine sets with vertical Kaplan turbines are installed with a total power output of 3 x 31.2 = 93.6 MW. With this power output the Miksova water power station (Miksova I) was the biggest water power station in the Slovak Republic until the construction of Pumping water power station Liptovska Mara. And it is still the biggest channel water power station on the Vah so far. It was put into operation during the period 1963 to 1965. There are three turbine sets with Kaplan turbines from CKD Blansko, with a synchronous hydro-alternator installed in the power station. Their installed capacity is 93.6 MW in total and the projected annual production of electrical energy is 207 GWh. The turbines are fi ve-bladed (on the Hricov and Povazska Bystrica water power stations they are four-bladed) and the impeller wheel has a diameter of 4800 mm. They are designed for extension of the head from 24.1 to 22.21 m and each of them has an absorption capacity of 134 m 3 .s -1 nd a nominal operating speed of 2.08 m 3 .s -1 , runaway speed 4.9 m 3 .s -1 . Each synchronous hydro-alternator has a maximum power output of 31.2 MW, a nominal voltage of 10.5 kV and power factor cos φ of 0.8. Power from the power station is led out through 110 kV switchgear. The water power station operates under automatic turbine mode of operation with remote indication and control from the Dispatch Centre at Vodne elektrarne, in Trencin. From start of operation until the end of 2003 all three turbine sets operated for a total of 450,500 running hours and the

    2015-12-01

    As objectives of development are high for renewable energies (they are supposed to cover 50 per cent of new energy needs by 2035), pumped energy transfer stations are to play an important role in this respect. The author first discusses the consequences of the development of renewable energies on the exploitation of electric grids: issue of intermittency for some of them, envisaged solutions. Then, he addresses one of the solutions: the storage of electric power. He notices that increasing the potential energy of a volume of water is presently the most mature solution to face massive needs of the power system. Dams and pumped energy transfer stations represent now almost the whole installed storage power in the world. The author then presents these pumped energy transfer stations: principle, brief history (the first appeared in Italy and Switzerland at the end of the 1890's). He indicates the various parameters of assessment of such stations: maximum stored energy, installed power in pumping mode and turbine mode, time constant, efficiency, level of flexibility. He discusses economic issues. He describes and comments the operation of turbine-pump groups: ternary groups, reversible binary groups. He discusses barriers to be overcome and technical advances to be made for varying speed groups and for marine stations. He finally gives an overview (table with number of stations belonging to different power ranges, remarkable installations) of existing stations in China, USA, Japan, Germany, Austria, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, France and UK, and indicate predictions regarding storage needs at the world level. Some data are finally indicated for the six existing French installations

  1. Shippingport Station decommissioning project overview

    Schreiber, J.J.

    1985-01-01

    The U.S. Department of Energy is in the process of decommissioning the Shippingport Atomic Power Station located on the Ohio River, 30 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Shippingport Station is the first commercial size nuclear power plant to undergo decommissioning in the United Staes. The plant is located on approximately 7 acres of land owned by the Duquesne Light Company (DLC) and leased to the U.S. Government. DLC operates two nuclear power plants, Beaver Valley 1 and 2, located immediately adjacent to the site and the Bruce Mansfield coal-fired power plant is also within the immediate area. The Station was shutdown in October, 1982. Defueling operations began in 1983 and were completed by September, 1984. The Shippingport Station consists of a 275' x 60' fuel handling building containing the reactor containment chamber, the service building, the turbine building, the radioactive waste processing building, the administration building and other smaller support buildings. The Station has four coolant loops and most of the containment structures are located below grade. Structures owned by the U.S. Government including the fuel handling building, service building, contaminated equipment room, the boiler chambers, the radioactive waste processing building and the decontamination and laydown buildings will be dismantled and removed to 3 feet below grade. The area will then be filled with clean soil and graded. The turbine building, testing and training building and the administration building are owned by DLC and will remain

    As the first stage in the construction of the Paks Nuclear Power Station, two units of 440 MW(e) each will be built. They are operated with two coolant loops each. The reactor units are VVER 440 type water-moderated PWR type heterogeneous power reactors designed in the Soviet Union and manufactured in Czechoslovakia. Each unit operates two Soviet-made K-220-44 steam turbines and Hungarian-made generators of an effective output of 220 MW. The output of the transformer units - also of Hungarian made - is 270 MVA. The radiation protection system of the nuclear power station is described. Protection against system failures is accomplished by specially designed equipment and security measures especially within the primary circuit. Some data on the power station under construction are given. (R.P.)

    Full Text Available The last Hungarian repeat station survey was completed between October 2010 and February 2011. Declination, inclination and the total field were observed using one-axial DMI fluxgate magnetometer mounted on Zeiss20A theodolite and GSM 19 Overhauser magnetometer. The magnetic elements of the sites were reduced to the epoch of 2010.5 on the basis of the continuous recordings of Tihany Geophysical Observatory. In stations located far from the reference observatory, the observations were carried out in the morning and afternoon in order to decrease the effect of the distant temporal correction. To further increase the accuracy, on-site dIdD variometer has also been installed near the Aggtelek station, in the Baradla cave, during the survey of the easternmost sites. The paper presents the technical details and the results of our last campaign. The improvement of the accuracy of the temporal reduction by the use of the local variometer is also reported.

    The purpose of the invention is to create a process for undelayed automated detection and monitoring of accidents in the operation of nuclear power stations. According to the invention, this problem is solved by the relevant local measurements, such as radiation dose, components and type of radiation and additional relevant meteorological parameters being collected by means of wellknown data collection platforms, these being transmitted via transmission channels by means of satellites to suitable worldwide situated receiving stations on the ground, being processed there and being evaluated to recognise accidents. The local data collection platforms are used in the immediate vicinity of the nuclear power station. The use of aircraft, ships and balloons as data collection systems is also intended. (HWJ)

    1976-01-01

    For measurement of nuclear power station achievement against original purchase the usual gross output figures are of little value since the term loosely covers many different definitions. An authentically designed output figure has been established which relates to net design output plus house load at full load. Based on these figures both cumulative and moving annual load factors are measured, the latter measuring the achievement over the last year, thus showing trends with time. Calculations have been carried out for all nuclear stations in the Western World with 150 MW(e) gross design output and above. From these are shown: moving annual load factor indicating relative station achievements for all the plants; cumulative load factors from which return of investment can be calculated; average moving annual load factors for the four types of system Magnox, PWR, HWR, and BWR; and a relative comparison of achievement by country in a few cases.

    This paper introduces the Japanese experiment module (JEM) in developing a space station. The JEM consists of systems of a pressurizing section, an exposure section, a pressurizing portion of a supply section, a manipulator and an exposure portion of the supply section. The pressurizing section circulates and controls air so that crews can perform experiments under pressurized environment. The exposure section is a part in which experiments are carried out under exposure environment. The supply section runs between a station and the ground, with required devices loaded on it. The manipulator performs attaching a payload for the exposure section and replaces experimental samples. The JEM undergoes a schedule of fabricating an engineering model, testing for a certification a prototype flight model, and putting the model on a flight. The pressurizing section, exposure section and manipulator are at the stage of system tests. Surveillance of the JEM and control of the experiments are carried out at the Tsukuba Space Center. The Center is composed of a space experiment building, a zero-gravity environment testing building, an astronaut training building, a space station operating building, and a space station testing building. 7 figs., 2 tabs.

    A personal hygiene system is currently under development for Space Station application that will provide capabilities equivalent to those found on earth. This paper addresses the study approach for specifying both primary and contingency personal hygiene systems and provisions for specified growth. Topics covered are system definition and subsystem descriptions. Subsystem interfaces are explored to determine which concurrent NASA study efforts must be monitored during future design phases to stay up-to-date on critical Space Station parameters. A design concept for a three (3) compartment personal hygiene facility is included as a baseline for planned test and verification activities.

    In assessing the prospects of the NASA Space Station program, it is important to take account of the long term perspective embodied in the proposal; its international participants are seen as entering a complex web of developmental and operational interdependence of indefinite duration. It is noted to be rather unclear, however, to what extent this is contemplated by such potential partners as the ESA, which has its own program goals. These competing hopes for eventual autonomy in space station operations will have considerable economic, technological, and political consequences extending well into the next century.

    Stepped chutes have been used as hydraulic structures since antiquity. They can be found acting as spillways and fish ladders in dams and weirs, as energy dissipators in artificial channels, gutters and rivers, and as aeration enhancers in water treatment plants and polluted streams. In recent years, new construction techniques and materials (Roller Compacted Concrete RCC, rip-rap gabions, etc.) together with the development of the above-mentioned new applications have allowed cheaper construction methods, increasing the interest in stepped chute design. During the last three decades, research in stepped spillways has been very active. However, studies prior to 1993 neglected the effect of free-surface aeration. A number of studies have focused since then on steep stepped chutes ({theta} {approx} 45 degrees), but the hydraulic performance of moderate-slope stepped channels is not yet totally understood. This study details an experimental investigation of physical air-water flow properties down moderate-slope stepped spillways conducted in two laboratory models: the first model was a 3.15-m-long stepped chute with a 15.9 degrees slope comprising two interchangeable step heights (h = 0.1 m and h = 0.05 m); the second model was a 3.3 m long, stepped channel with a 21.8 degrees slope (h = 0.1 m). A broad range of discharges within transition and skimming flow regimes was investigated. Measurements were conducted using a double tip conductivity probe. The study provides new, original insights into air-water stepped chute flows not foreseen in prior studies and presents a new design criterion for chutes with moderate slopes based on the experimental results.

    In development of ground motion prediction equations (GMPEs), the residuals are assumed to have a log-normal distribution with a zero mean and a standard deviation, designated as sigma. Sigma has significant effect on evaluation of seismic hazard for designing important infrastructures such as nuclear power plants and dams. Both aleatory and epistemic uncertainties are involved in the sigma parameter. However, ground-motion observations over long time periods are not available at specific sites and the GMPEs have been derived using observed data from multiple sites for a small number of well-recorded earthquakes. Therefore, sigma is dominantly related to the statistics of the spatial variability of ground motion instead of temporal variability at a single point (ergodic assumption). The main purpose of this study is to reduce the variability of the residuals so as to handle it as epistemic uncertainty. In this regard, it is tried to partially apply the non-ergodic assumption by removing repeatable site effects from total variability of six GMPEs driven from the local, Europe-Middle East and worldwide data. For this purpose, we used 1837 acceleration time histories from 374 shallow earthquakes with moment magnitudes ranging from M w 4.0 to 7.3 recorded at 370 stations with at least two recordings per station. According to estimated single-station sigma for the Iranian strong motion stations, the ratio of event-corrected single-station standard deviation ( Φ ss) to within-event standard deviation ( Φ) is about 0.75. In other words, removing the ergodic assumption on site response resulted in 25% reduction of the within-event standard deviation that reduced the total standard deviation by about 15%.

    Nowadays the treatment of the solid and liquid remainders in the municipal slaughter houses is small because of the idea that the treatment is expensive; nevertheless, it is important to take advantage of them, since this can reduce to the environmental impacts they cause, as well as the discharge of greenhouse effect gas. The use of bio digesters for the treatment of these remainders has become an efficient process to avoid the exit of methane gas to the atmosphere, taking advantage of the biogas and other residues to produce electricity. The elaboration of a technical-economical evaluation of a pilot plant shows the costs of investment, maintenance, as well as the income that can be obtained by the total usage of these residues and the savings in the electrical power consumption. The analysis of this study demonstrates that the use of biogas through bio-digesters for the generation of electrical energy is a profitable option for the treatment of the residues, because the income by the sale of compost, blood flour, as well as the diminution of the electrical tariff, justifies the initial investment. These projects will be more attractive, if they use financing and are registered as MDL projects.

Fundamentada nos conceitos de sedução, fascínio e servidão voluntária e trabalhando na instância mítica, esta pesquisa apresenta uma nova leitura do imaginário moderno e do discurso organizacional. A metodologia empregada foi de pesquisa qualitativa por meio de entrevistas semi-estruturadas com executivos de duas empresas modernas, líderes em suas organizações, que foram submetidas à categorização e à análise de discurso. Como resultado, foram apresentadas as descrições das relações dos executivos com os seus discursos organizacionais por meio de três categorias: submissão à vontade do dono, os preciosos recursos humanos e a supervalorização dos próprios predicados. Algumas das conclusões obtidas revelam que o executivo contribui para a construção do discurso organizacional, sujeitando-se de forma voluntária, simplesmente porque é favorável; assim como, pela mesma razão, contribui efetivamente para a adesão dos seus empregados, que ocorre por habitualidade, pelo comprometimento e pelo sonho do sucesso.ABSTRACTThis article describes the relationship between the executive and the organizational discourse of the modern company as it presents itself: how can the executive interfere with its creation, and the executive’s degree of acceptance and contribution in disseminating the organizational discourse amongst employees.

In Spain under king Philippe II are very clear the plentiful connections of the nobility with all things around the state’s violence —the war—, even the others ways not controlled by himself. From a social point of view, we see that the primitive function of the nobility is important in the social structure. The list of military functions, features, attributes (the symbolism of the war like a good social virtue, and its owner’s condition of weapons gives to the noblemen a power, at least intimidator, very great. From this point of view, its manoeuvrability was wide and important in the social relations too. In this way the nobility was able to continue in its privileged position for a long time.

    Este artículo pretende mostrar la importancia que tiene la nobleza, como estamento social, dentro de los esquemas del mundo de la guerra a comienzos de la Edad Moderna. En el caso de la España de Felipe II se puede ver con claridad las abundantes implicaciones de los nobles con todo lo que rodea a la violencia auspiciada por Estado —la guerra—, y también incluso la que se aparta de este tipo de cauces «oficiales». Desde un punto de vista propiamente social, se puede observar que la función originaria de la nobleza todavía tiene sentido dentro de la propia ordenación social. El elenco de funciones militares, características, atributos (la simbología de la exaltación de lo guerrero como un enaltecido valor social, y su propia tenencia y disposición de gran número de armas, otorgaban a los nobles un poder, al menos intimidatorio, muy grande. Desde esta perspectiva, su capacidad de maniobra se nos muestra así muy amplia, y configuradora también de determinadas relaciones sociales, entre las que se encuentra la propia capacidad de la nobleza como grupo social para autoperpetuarse en su posici

Se observa que la variedad temática y volumen de trabajos publicados para otras órdenes militares es mucho mayor que para ésta, y dentro la propia orden, frente a la producción de autores italianos, franceses o ingleses, las españolas tienen menos publicaciones, de ellas la mayoría relativas a la Edad Media. Además, la lengua de Castilla está menos estudiada que la de Aragón, quizá por la destrucción del Archivo del Priorato de San Juan en la Guerra de la Independencia. Frente a escasas visiones generales, se van conociendo más algunas encomiendas, los aspectos artísticos y muchos otros que se ven favorecidos por las convocatorias de sucesivos congresos celebrados en los últimos años, donde se demuestra que en los archivos españoles y en la National Librery of Valetta queda aún un filón por explotar.ABSTRACT: This bibliographic review deals with the Military Order of Malta. This name was adopted by the Order of Saint John of Jerusalem during the Early Modern and Modern Age.

En la España moderna, desde los grandes banquetes cortesanos, llenos de lujo y fantasía, tiasta los más modestos banquetes de las cofradías, todos los grupos sociales, de los más altos a los más bajos, se manifiestan en sus fiestas alimentarias. El ritmo de la vida queda subrayado, por ejemplo, en los siempre espléndidos banquetes de boda. El ritmo del año lo marcan también múltiples celebraciones alimentarias. Navidad, Carnaval, fiestas mayores. El banquete no es sólo realidad es también utopía y se sueña en el imaginario colectivo como un ideal de vida en que la necesidad de comer para vivir se transforma en el placer de vivir para comer.The banquet is, no doubt, one of the signs of feast par excellence. Image of abundance, refinement, pleasure and tradition, it reflects, on the one hand, the established social order and on the other means the extraordinary, the rupture of the daily rutine.

  12. Space Station power system issues

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Giudici, R.J.

    1985-01-01

    Issues governing the selection of power systems for long-term manned Space Stations intended solely for earth orbital missions are covered briefly, drawing on trade study results from both in-house and contracted studies that have been conducted over nearly two decades. An involvement, from the Program Development Office at MSFC, with current Space Station concepts began in late 1982 with the NASA-wide Systems Definition Working Group and continued throughout 1984 in support of various planning activities. The premise for this discussion is that, within the confines of the current Space Station concept, there is good reason to consider photovoltaic power systems to be a venerable technology option for both the initial 75 kW and 300 kW (or much greater) growth stations. The issue of large physical size required by photovoltaic power systems is presented considering mass, atmospheric drag, launch packaging and power transmission voltage as being possible practicality limitations. The validity of searching for a cross-over point necessitating the introduction of solar thermal or nuclear power system options as enabling technologies is considered with reference to programs ranging from the 4.8 kW Skylab to the 9.5 gW Space Power Satellite

    An ergonomic integration of controls, displays, and associated interfaces with an operator, whose body geometry and dynamics may be altered by the state of weightlessness, is noted to rank in importance with the optimal positioning of controls relative to the layout and architecture of 'body-ported' work/control stations applicable to the NASA Space Station Freedom. A long-term solution to this complex design problem is envisioned to encompass the following features: multiple imaging, virtual optics, screen displays controlled by a keyboard ergonomically designed for weightlessness, cursor control, a CCTV camera, and a hand-controller featuring 'no-grip' vernier/tactile positioning. This controller frees all fingers for multiple-switch actuations, while retaining index/register determination with the hand controller. A single architectural point attachment/restraint may be used which requires no residual muscle tension in either brief or prolonged operation.

    In this work, a study was conducted of the flooding and dehydration processes of a PEM fuel cell using the EIS technique. The experiments were conducted in a 50 cm{sup 2} cell. The gradual flooding of the system was induced by operating the cell at a potential of 0.3 V and maintaining the gas outlet closed (that is, stoichiometry of 1 for the anode (H{sub 2}) and the cathode (O{sub 2})) to enable the water produced by the reaction to accumulate inside. The gradual dehydration was induced by operating the cell at a potential of 0.3V and establishing a oxidized gas flow at a stoichiometry of 4. EIS tests were applied throughout both processes. The results showed that the EIS technique is highly sensitive for the analysis of the different degrees of the flooding processes by monitoring variations in the imaginary components of total impedance (Z{sup )} or the phase angle ({theta}). For low degrees of flooding, the technique had good sensitivity, between 1 and 6 Hz, while at high degrees of flooding the technique's greatest sensitivity was limited to a range between 1 and 2 Hz. In the case of the dehydration process of the system, the results showed that this type of process can be analyzed for variations in the value of the real component (Z{sup '}) as well as for the imaginary component of total impedance and variations in the phase angle. The analysis of dehydration with Z{sup '} was possible at a rather wide range, from 100 to 1000 Hz; with Z{sup }or {theta} it was only possible at a range of 20 to 200 Hz.

    ELECTRICITE DE FRANCE currently operates 51 generating stations with 900 and 1300 MW Pressurized Water Reactors while, only 15 years ago, France possessed only a very small number of such stations. It was therefore vital to set up a major training organization to produce staff capable of starting, controlling and maintaining these facilities with a constant eye to improving quality and safety. Operator and maintenance staff training is based on highly-structured training plans designed to match both the post to be filled and the qualifications possessed by the person who is to fill it. It was essential to set up suitable high-performance training resources to handle this fast growth in staff. These resources are constantly being developed and allow EDF to make steady progress in a large number of areas, varying from the effects of human factors to the procedures to be followed during an accident

    The findings from the Skylab missions are discussed as they relate to the operations planning of future space stations such as Spacelab and the proposed Space Operations Center. Following a brief description of the Skylab spacecraft, the significance of the mission as a demonstration of the possibility of effecting emergency repairs in space is pointed out. Specific recommendations made by Skylab personnel concerning capabilities for future in-flight maintenance are presented relating to the areas of spacecraft design criteria, tool selection and spares carried. Attention is then given to relevant physiological findings, and to habitability considerations in the areas of sleep arrangements, hygiene, waste management, clothing, and food. The issue of contamination control is examined in detail as a potential major system to be integrated into future design criteria. The importance of the Skylab results to the designers of future space stations is emphasized.

    The optimized conceptual engineering design of a space station tethered elevator is presented. The tethered elevator is an unmanned, mobile structure which operates on a ten-kilometer tether spanning the distance between Space Station Freedom and a platform. Its capabilities include providing access to residual gravity levels, remote servicing, and transportation to any point along a tether. The report discusses the potential uses, parameters, and evolution of the spacecraft design. Emphasis is placed on the elevator's structural configuration and three major subsystem designs. First, the design of elevator robotics used to aid in elevator operations and tethered experimentation is presented. Second, the design of drive mechanisms used to propel the vehicle is discussed. Third, the design of an onboard self-sufficient power generation and transmission system is addressed.

    1990-01-01

    The feasibility of directly converting solar energy for crew water heating on the Space Station Freedom (SSF) and other human-tended missions such as a geosynchronous space station, lunar base, or Mars spacecraft was investigated. Computer codes were developed to model the systems, and a proof-of-concept thermal vacuum test was conducted to evaluate system performance in an environment simulating the SSF. The results indicate that a solar water heater is feasible. It could provide up to 100 percent of the design heating load without a significant configuration change to the SSF or other missions. The solar heater system requires only 15 percent of the electricity that an all-electric system on the SSF would require. This allows a reduction in the solar array or a surplus of electricity for onboard experiments.

  8. Decommissioning of nuclear power stations

    In the United Kingdom the Electricity Boards, the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) and BNFL cooperate on all matters relating to the decommissioning of nuclear plant. The Central Electricity Generating Board's (CEGB) policy endorses the continuing need for nuclear power, the principle of reusing existing sites where possible and the building up of sufficient funds during the operating life of a nuclear power station to meet the cost of its complete clearance in the future. The safety of the plant is the responsibility of the licensee even in the decommissioning phase. The CEGB has carried out decommissioning studies on Magnox stations in general and Bradwell and Berkeley in particular. It has also been involved in the UKAEA Windscale AGR decommissioning programme. The options as to which stage to decommission to are considered. Methods, costs and waste management are also considered. (U.K.)

  9. Stage measurement at gaging stations

    Sauer, Vernon B.; Turnipseed, D. Phil

    2010-01-01

    Stream and reservoir stage are critical parameters in the computation of stream discharge and reservoir volume, respectively. In addition, a record of stream stage is useful in the design of structures that may be affected by stream elevation, as well as for the planning for various uses of flood plains. This report describes equipment and methodology for the observation, sensing, and recording of stage in streams and reservoirs. Although the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) still uses the traditional, basic stilling-well float system as a predominant gaging station, modern electronic stage sensors and water-level recorders are now commonly used. Bubble gages coupled with nonsubmersible pressure transducers eliminate the need for stilling wells. Submersible pressure transducers have become common in use for the measurement of stage in both rivers and lakes. Furthermore, noncontact methods, such as radar, acoustic, and laser methods of sensing water levels, are being developed and tested, and in the case of radar, are commonly used for the measurement of stage. This report describes commonly used gaging-station structures, as well as the design and operation of gaging stations. Almost all of the equipment and instruments described in this report will meet the accuracy standard set by the USGS Office of Surface Water (OSW) for the measurement of stage for most applications, which is ±0.01 foot (ft) or 0.2 percent of the effective stage. Several telemetry systems are used to transmit stage data from the gaging station to the office, although satellite telemetry has become the standard. These telemetry systems provide near real-time stage data, as well as other information that alerts the hydrographer to extreme or abnormal events, and instrument malfunctions.

    16 nuclear power plants are in commercial operation in Japan, and nuclear power generation holds the most important position among various substitute energies. Hereafter also, it is expected that the construction of nuclear power stations will continue because other advantageous energy sources are not found. In this paper, the outline of the pumps used for BWR plants is described. Nuclear power stations tend to be large scale to reduce the construction cost per unit power output, therefore the pumps used are those of large capacity. The conditions to be taken in consideration are high temperature, high pressure, radioactive fluids, high reliability, hydrodynamic performances, aseismatic design, relevant laws and regulations, and quality assurance. Pumps are used for reactor recirculation system, control rod driving hydraulic system, boric acid solution injecting system, reactor coolant purifying system, fuel pool cooling and purifying system, residual heat removing system, low pressure and high pressure core spraying systems, and reactor isolation cooling system, for condensate, feed water, drain and circulating water systems of turbines, for fresh water, sea water, make-up water and fire fighting services, and for radioactive waste treating system. The problems of the pumps used for nuclear power stations are described, for example, the requirement of high reliability, the measures to radioactivity and the aseismatic design. (Kako, I.)

  13. Optimization of station battery replacement

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Jancauskas, J.R.; Shook, D.A.

    1994-01-01

    During a loss of ac power at a nuclear generating station (including diesel generators), batteries provide the source of power which is required to operate safety-related components. Because traditional lead-acid batteries have a qualified life of 20 years, the batteries must be replaced a minimum of once during a station's lifetime, twice if license extension is pursued, and more often depending on actual in-service dates and the results of surveillance tests. Replacement of batteries often occurs prior to 20 years as a result of systems changes caused by factors such as Station Blackout Regulations, control system upgrades, incremental load growth, and changes in the operating times of existing equipment. Many of these replacement decisions are based on the predictive capabilities of manual design basis calculations. The inherent conservatism of manual calculations may result in battery replacements occurring before actually required. Computerized analysis of batteries can aid in optimizing the timing of replacements as well as in interpreting service test data. Computerized analysis also provides large benefits in maintaining the as-configured load profile and corresponding design margins, while also providing the capability of quickly analyze proposed modifications and response to internal and external audits

  14. CNG Fuelling Stations Design Philosophy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Radwan, H.

    2004-01-01

    I. Overview (a) Compressed Natural Gas - CNG:- Natural Gas, as an alternative fuel for vehicles, is supplied from the Natural Gas Distribution Network to the CNG fuelling stations to be compressed to 250 bars. It is then dispensed, to be stored on board of the vehicle at about 200 bars in a cylinder installed in the rear, under carriage, or on top of the vehicle. When the Natural Gas is required by the engine, it leaves the cylinder traveling through a high pressure pipe to a high pressure regulator, where the pressure is reduced close to atmospheric pressure, through a specially designed mixer, where it is properly mixed with air. The mixture then flows into the engine's combustion chamber, and is ignited to create the power required to drive the vehicle. (b) CNG Fuelling Stations General Description: as Supply and Metering The incoming gas supply and metering installation primarily depend on the pressure and flow demands of the gas compressor. Natural Gas Compressor In general, gas compressors for natural gas filling stations have relatively low flow rates

    Suikki, M.

    2006-01-01

    The working report for the spent fuel canister docking station presents a design for the operation and structure of the docking equipment located in the fuel handling cell for the spent fuel in the encapsulation plant. The report contains a description of the basic requirements for the docking station equipment and their implementation, the operation of the equipment, maintenance and a cost estimate. In the designing of the equipment all the problems related with the operation have been solved at the level of principle, nevertheless, detailed designing and the selection of final components have not yet been carried out. In case of defects and failures, solutions have been considered for postulated problems, and furthermore, the entire equipment was gone through by the means of systematic risk analysis (PFMEA). During the docking station designing we came across with needs to influence the structure of the actual disposal canister for spent nuclear fuel, too. Proposed changes for the structure of the steel lid fastening screw were included in the report. The report also contains a description of installation with the fuel handling cell structures. The purpose of the docking station for the fuel handling cell is to position and to seal the disposal canister for spent nuclear fuel into a penetration located on the cell floor and to provide suitable means for executing the loading of the disposal canister and the changing of atmosphere. The designed docking station consists of a docking ring, a covering hatch, a protective cone and an atmosphere-changing cap as well as the vacuum technology pertaining to the changing of atmosphere and the inert gas system. As far as the solutions are concerned, we have arrived at rather simple structures and most of the actuators of the system are situated outside of the actual fuel handling cell. When necessary, the equipment can also be used for the dismantling of a faulty disposal canister, cut from its upper end by machining. The

  10. Nuclear Station Facilities Improvement Planning

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Hooks, R. W.; Lunardini, A. L.; Zaben, O.

    1991-01-01

    An effective facilities improvement program will include a plan for the temporary relocation of personnel during the construction of an adjoining service building addition. Since the smooth continuation of plant operation is of paramount importance, the phasing plan is established to minimize the disruptions in day-to-day station operation and administration. This plan should consider the final occupancy arrangements and the transition to the new structure; for example, computer hookup and phase-in should be considered. The nuclear industry is placing more emphasis on safety and reliability of nuclear power plants. In order to do this, more emphasis is placed on operations and maintenance. This results in increased size of managerial, technical and maintenance staffs. This in turn requires improved office and service facilities. The facilities that require improvement may include training areas, rad waste processing and storage facilities, and maintenance facilities. This paper discusses an approach for developing an effective program to plan and implement these projects. These improvement projects can range in magnitude from modifying a simple system to building a new structure to allocating space for a future project. This paper addresses the planning required for the new structures with emphasis on site location, space allocation, and internal layout. Since facility planning has recently been completed by Sargent and Leyden at six U. S. nuclear stations, specific examples from some of those plants are presented. Site planning and the establishment of long-range goals are of the utmost importance when undertaking a facilities improvement program for a nuclear station. A plan that considers the total site usage will enhance the value of both the new and existing facilities. Proper planning at the beginning of the program can minimize costs and maximize the benefits of the program

    Full Text Available The paper is devoted to testing electrooptical distance measuring devices (EDM built in total stations, than can be used for various tasks in the contemporary geodetic works. A rich market offer and availability of these universal measuring systems with satisfying distance range, excellent accuracy and other parameters, make total stations as dominant terrestrial geodetic instruments.For succesfully applying these instruments, above all for relliable distance measurements, the stability of the modulation frequency is the most important pre-condition. In the article, therefore, there are given some methods to verify the modulation frequency stability. In addition, some ways for determining the EDM distance constant and periodical corrections of the phase measuring unit are introduced for 4 types of EDM : LEICA 1700L, TOPCON GTS6A, TOPCON GTS2, C.ZEISS ELTA50. It were also investigated their possibilities for precise distance survey. Values of the determined constants and periodical corrections are presented in Tab. 2.Based on the investigation results of the 4 EDM types and using the values m obtained for different distances S, equations of the a posteriori standard deviations in form : m = (a+b.S were derived too.

  1. Insurance of nuclear power stations

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Debaets, M.

    1992-01-01

    Electrical utility companies have invested large sums in the establishment of nuclear facilities. For this reason it is normal for these companies to attempt to protect their investments as much as possible. One of the methods of protection is recourse to insurance. For a variety of reasons traditional insurance markets are unable to function normally for a number of reasons including, the insufficient number of risks, an absence of meaningful accident statistics, the enormous sums involved and a lack of familiarity with nuclear risks on the part of insurers, resulting in a reluctance or even refusal to accept such risks. Insurers have, in response to requests for coverage from nuclear power station operators, established an alternative system of coverage - insurance through a system of insurance pools. Insurers in every country unite in a pool, providing a net capacity for every risk which is a capacity covered by their own funds, and consequently without reinsurance. All pools exchange capacity. The inconvenience of this system, for the operators in particular, is that it involves a monopolistic system in which there are consequently few possibilities for the negotiation of premiums and conditions of coverage. The system does not permit the establishment of reserves which could, over time, reduce the need for insurance on the part of nuclear power station operators. Thus the cost of nuclear insurance remains high. Alternatives to the poor system of insurance are explored in this article. (author)

    The current phase of the Space Station Operating System study is based on the analysis, evaluation, and comparison of the operating systems implemented on the computer systems and workstations in the software development laboratory. Primary emphasis has been placed on the DEC MicroVMS operating system as implemented on the MicroVax II computer, with comparative analysis of the SUN UNIX system on the SUN 3/260 workstation computer, and to a limited extent, the IBM PC/AT microcomputer running PC-DOS. Some benchmark development and testing was also done for the Motorola MC68010 (VM03 system) before the system was taken from the laboratory. These systems were studied with the objective of determining their capability to support Space Station software development requirements, specifically for multi-tasking and real-time applications. The methodology utilized consisted of development, execution, and analysis of benchmark programs and test software, and the experimentation and analysis of specific features of the system or compilers in the study.

    Rogério Ferrer Koff

    2018-04-01

    Full Text Available O texto problematiza a noção moderna de humanidade, enquanto gênero universal, baseada em uma certa visão da natureza humana, em uma cultura de fundamentos e em uma profunda convicção na existência de uma essência universal do homem. A crise da noção de essência faz surgir a historicidade como a forma cabal do pensamento no século XIX, o que teria quebrado o caráter unívoco da palavra “ciência”. O pensamento do Século XX e do alvorecer do novo milênio nos parecem herdeiros desta crise. A relativização da ordem da verdade e a consequente ideia de um caráter provisório do conhecimento e da moral obteve abrigo no pensamento pós-moderno, caracterizado pela rejeição da tradição racionalista inaugurada no pensamento grego clássico e vigente até o Iluminismo. A experiência moderna e sua ênfase na universalidade do gênero humano passou a ser considerada positivista e etnocêntrica. No lugar de verdades absolutas, emergiram as categorias de heterogeneidade, diferença e relativismo.   PALAVRAS-CHAVE: Modernidade; Relativização; humanismo.     ABSTRACT The text problematizes the modern notion of humanity as a universal genre based on a certain vision of human nature, a culture of foundations and a deep conviction in the existence of a universal essence of man. The crisis of the notion of essence gives rise to historicity as the full form of thought in the nineteenth century, which would have broken the univocal character of the word "science." The thought of the twentieth century and the dawn of the new millennium seem to us inheritors of this crisis. The relativization of the order of truth and the consequent idea of ​​a provisional character of knowledge and morality gained shelter in postmodern thought, characterized by the rejection of the rationalist tradition inaugurated in classical Greek thought and in force up to the Enlightenment.

    Full Text Available El siglo XIX dio lugar a nuevas formas de subjetividad metropolitana que tuvieron en el cuento "El hombre de la multitud", de Edgar Allan Poe, un tratamiento excepcional. Es innegable la relevancia de este relato al interior de su obra, así como su aporte al desarrollo del género narrativo. Sin embargo, el cuento de Poe puede ser considerado, a su vez, como una fuente de notable influencia en la redefinición del concepto de modernidad que Baudelaire plasmará en su obra "El pintor de la vida moderna". Al examinar el personaje anónimo de "El hombre de la multitud" y la singularidad del Sr. G, pintor que da fundamento a la crítica de la tradición pictórica de costumbres, quedará en evidencia como los principales argumentos de Baudelaire sobre el arte y las nuevas formas de habitar la ciudad moderna encuentran en el relato de Poe una significativa fuente de inspiración.The 19th century gave rise to new forms of metropolitan subjectivity with an exceptional treatment in EdgarAllan Poe's tale "TheMan of the Crowd". The relevance of this short story into his work is undeniable, as well as its contribution to the development of the narrative genre. However, Poe's story can be considered as a source of considerable influence in the redefinition of the concept of modernity, that Baudelaire will express in his work "The Painter of Modern Life". In examining the anonymous character of "The Man of the Crowd" and the singularity of Mr. G, the painter who gives substance to the criticism of the pictorial tradition of customs, it grows evident how Baudelaire's main arguments on art and the new ways of life in the modern city find in Poe's short story a significant source of inspiration

    2016-12-01

    Full Text Available Este artículo se basa en resultados de la investigación que analizó un corpus de 225 ediciones de las revistas A CASA y ARQUITETURA E URBANISMO, publicado entre 1923 y 1942, cuyo fin consistió en identificar a través de los textos e imáge- nes divulgados las transformaciones de los significados y formas de expresión de “lo moderno”. Se busca, de este modo, entender cómo este término que albergaba una gama diversificada de expresiones se convirtió en una línea hegemó- nica, bastante definida en la arquitectura brasileña, que incluso admitió la denominación de Movimiento Moderno para ser identificado. El “estylo” moderno aparece en las revistas brasileñas a partir de la Exposición de Artes Industriales y Decorativas Modernas de 1925 en París, donde se presentaron diversas manifestaciones arquitectónicas que fueron, por cierto, identificadas indistintamente como “modernas” en las revistas analizadas. Estas variadas expresiones de lo moder- no, ignoradas por la mayoría de las narrativas históricas, fueron precisamente las responsables de conquistar y fertilizar -en gran parte debido a publicaciones de revistas especializadas- un campo árido en el cual florecerían luego las excep- cionales obras de la arquitectura moderna brasileña de matriz corbusiana, celebradas a nivel nacional e internacional.

    The Struve Geodetic Arc was developed in Years 1816 to 1855, 200 years ago. Historic information on the points of the Struve Geodetic Arc are included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2005. Nevertheless, the sites of many points are still not identified nor included in the data bases nowadays. Originally STRUVE arc consisted of 258 main triangles with 265 triangulation points. Currently 34 of the original station points are identified and included in the in the UNESCO World Heritage list. identified original measurement points of the Meridian Arc are located in Sweden (7 points), Norway (15), Finland (83), Russia (1), Estonia (22), Latvia (16), Lithuania (18), Belorussia (28), Ukraine (59) and Moldova (27). In Year 2002 was initiated another large coverage project - European Position Determination System "EUPOS®". Currently there are about 400 continuously operating GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) stations covering EU countries Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and East European countries Ukraine and Moldavia. EUPOS® network is a ground based GNSS augmentation system widely used for geodesy, land surveying, geophysics and navigation. It gives the opportunity for fast and accurate position determination never available before. It is an honorable task to use the EUPOS® system for research of the Struve triangulation former sites. Projects with Struve arc can popularize geodesy, geo-information and its meaning in nowadays GIS and GNSS systems. Struve Arc and its points is unique cooperation cross-border object which deserve special attention because of their natural beauty and historical value for mankind. GNSS in geodesy discovers a powerful tool for the verification and validation of the height values of geodetic leveling benchmarks established historically almost 200 years ago. The differential GNSS and RTK methods appear very useful to identify vertical displacement of landscape by means of

    2016-01-01

    Upon commencement of my internship, I was in charge of maintaining the CoFR (Certificate of Flight Readiness) Tool. The tool acquires data from existing Excel workbooks on NASA's and Boeing's databases to create a new spreadsheet listing out all the potential safety concerns for upcoming flights and software transitions. Since the application was written in Visual Basic, I had to learn a new programming language and prepare to handle any malfunctions within the program. Shortly afterwards, I was given the assignment to automate the Station Program Note (SPN) Pull process. I developed an application, in Python, that generated a GUI (Graphical User Interface) that will be used by the International Space Station Safety & Mission Assurance team here at Johnson Space Center. The application will allow its users to download online files with the click of a button, import SPN's based on three different pulls, instantly manipulate and filter spreadsheets, and compare the three sources to determine which active SPN's (Station Program Notes) must be reviewed for any upcoming flights, missions, and/or software transitions. Initially, to perform the NASA SPN pull (one of three), I had created the program to allow the user to login to a secure webpage that stores data, input specific parameters, and retrieve the desired SPN's based on their inputs. However, to avoid any conflicts with sustainment, I altered it so that the user may login and download the NASA file independently. After the user has downloaded the file with the click of a button, I defined the program to check for any outdated or pre-existing files, for successful downloads, to acquire the spreadsheet, convert it from a text file to a comma separated file and finally into an Excel spreadsheet to be filtered and later scrutinized for specific SPN numbers. Once this file has been automatically manipulated to provide only the SPN numbers that are desired, they are stored in a global variable, shown on the GUI, and

    The shapes and temperature of flames in power stations, fired with powder coal and gas, have been measured optically. Spectral information in the visible and near infrared is used. Coal flames are visualized in the blue part of the spectrum, natural gas flames are viewed in the light of CH-emission. Temperatures of flames are derived from the best fit of the Planck-curve to the thermal radiation spectrum of coal and char, or to that of soot in the case of gas flames. A measuring method for the velocity distribution inside a gas flame is presented, employing pulsed alkali salt injection. It has been tested on a 100 kW natural gas flame. 3 refs., 9 figs.

    The Space Station Freedom program is developing an operations planning structure which assigns responsibility for planning activities to three tiers of management. The strategic level develops the policy, goals and requirements for the program over a five-year horizon. Planning at the tactical level emphasizes program integration and planning for a two-year horizon. The tactical planning process, architecture, and products have been documented and discussed with the international partners. Tactical planning includes the assignment of user and system hardware as well as significant operational events to a time increment (the period of time from the arrival of one Shuttle to the manned base to the arrival of the next). Execution-level planning emphasizes implementation, and each organization produces detailed plans, by increment, that are specific to its function.

The goal of the NASA/USRA project was to first obtain a refinement of the design work done in Spring 1986 on the proposed Mobile Remote Manipulator System (MRMS) for the Space Station. This was followed by design exercises involving the OMV and two armed service vehicle. Three students worked on projects suggested by NASA Goddard scientists for ten weeks this past summer. The knowledge gained from the summer design exercise has been used to improve our current design of the MRMS. To this end, the following program was undertaken for the Fall semester 1986: (1) refinement of the MRMS design; and (2) addition of vision capability to our design.

  18. Space Station alpha joint bearing

    Everman, Michael R.; Jones, P. Alan; Spencer, Porter A.

    1987-01-01

    Perhaps the most critical structural system aboard the Space Station is the Solar Alpha Rotary Joint which helps align the power generation system with the sun. The joint must provide structural support and controlled rotation to the outboard transverse booms as well as power and data transfer across the joint. The Solar Alpha Rotary Joint is composed of two transition sections and an integral, large diameter bearing. Alpha joint bearing design presents a particularly interesting problem because of its large size and need for high reliability, stiffness, and on orbit maintability. The discrete roller bearing developed is a novel refinement to cam follower technology. It offers thermal compensation and ease of on-orbit maintenance that are not found in conventional rolling element bearings. How the bearing design evolved is summarized. Driving requirements are reviewed, alternative concepts assessed, and the selected design is described.

    Lack of charging stations has been a main obstacle to the promotion of electric vehicles. This paper studies deploying charging stations in traffic networks considering grid constraints to balance the charging demand and grid stability. First, we propose a statistical model for charging demand. Then we combine the charging demand model with power grid constraints and give the formulation of the charging station deployment problem. Finally, we propose a theoretical solution for the problem by transforming it to a Markov Decision Process.

    Full Text Available Funcionamos, día a día, con una cierta noción de política. De algún modo, sabemos lo que es un parlamento, un partido, una ideología, aunque se trate de un conocimiento impreciso y que no cuestiona, por ejemplo, la relación entre la teoría y la práctica políticas. No nos resulta difícil trasvasar estas nociones al pasado e identificar las principales características de lo político en cualquier época pasada. En la edad moderna europea podemos también, sin embargo, señalar ausencias importantes, en especial al respecto de la definición de la política como disciplina: en cuanto a su institucionalización como saber dentro de las bibliotecas, su presencia en las enseñanzas universitarias, la aparición de un intelectual con una función especializada, los límites del campo, etc.Existen muchas maneras de salvar la tensión entre una visión extraña del pasado y un tratamiento cercano del mismo y la historiografía, entendida como reflexión teórica acerca del pasado, ha dedicado largas páginas a esta cuestión. Este artículo pretende retomar esta reflexión desde una perspectiva relativamente novedosa. En lugar de explicar teóricamente como se dilucida esta presentación de los rasgos distanciados y próximos del pasado, pretendo reflexionar sobre el modo en que se practica cotidianamente esa negociación en la labor del historiador.

    Turnipseed, D. Phil; Sauer, Vernon B.

    2010-01-01

    The techniques and standards for making discharge measurements at streamflow gaging stations are described in this publication. The vertical axis rotating-element current meter, principally the Price current meter, has been traditionally used for most measurements of discharge; however, advancements in acoustic technology have led to important developments in the use of acoustic Doppler current profilers, acoustic Doppler velocimeters, and other emerging technologies for the measurement of discharge. These new instruments, based on acoustic Doppler theory, have the advantage of no moving parts, and in the case of the acoustic Doppler current profiler, quickly and easily provide three-dimensional stream-velocity profile data through much of the vertical water column. For much of the discussion of acoustic Doppler current profiler moving-boat methodology, the reader is referred to U.S. Geological Survey Techniques and Methods 3-A22 (Mueller and Wagner, 2009). Personal digital assistants (PDAs), electronic field notebooks, and other personal computers provide fast and efficient data-collection methods that are more error-free than traditional hand methods. The use of portable weirs and flumes, floats, volumetric tanks, indirect methods, and tracers in measuring discharge are briefly described.

  18. Space Station Freedom - What if...?

    Grey, Jerry

    1992-10-01

    The use of novel structural designs and the Energia launch system of the Commonwealth of Independent States for the Space Station Freedom (SSF) program is evaluated by means of a concept analysis. The analysis assumes that: (1) Energia is used for all cargo and logistics resupply missions; (2) the shuttles are launched from the U.S.; and (3) an eight-person assured crew return vehicle is available. This launch/supply scenario reduces the deployment risk from 30 launches to a total of only eight launches reducing the cost by about 15 billion U.S. dollars. The scenario also significantly increases the expected habitable and storage volumes and decreases the deployment time by three years over previous scenarios. The specific payloads are given for Energia launches emphasizing a proposed design for the common module cluster that incorporates direct structural attachment to the truss at midspan. The design is shown to facilitate the accommodation of additional service hangars and to provide a more efficient program for spacecraft habitable space.

    Now, the start-up test of No. 2 plant in Fukushima No. 2 Nuclear Power Station is smoothly in progress, and the start of its commercial operation is scheduled at the beginning of 1984. Here, the main features of No. 2 plant including piping design are explained. For No. 2 plant, many improving measures were adopted as the base plant of the improvement and standardization project of the Ministry of International Trade and Industry, such as the adoption of Mark-2 improved PCV, the adoption of an intermediate loop in the auxiliary cooling system, one-body forging of the lower end cover of the reactor pressure vessel, the adoption of many curved pipes, the adoption of large one-body structural components in reactor recirculation system piping and so on, which are related to the reduction of radiation exposure and the improvement of plant reliability in operation and regular inspection. Also, in order to do general adjustment in the arrangement of equipment and piping and in route design, and to establish the rational construction work plan, model engineering was adopted. In No. 2 plant, a remote-controlled automatic and semiautomatic ultrasonic flaw detection system was adopted to reduce radiation exposure in in-service inspection. Automatic welding was adopted to improve the quality. (Kako, I.)

  5. Principles of nuclear power station control

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Knowles, J.B.

    1975-12-01

    This memorandum represents lecture notes first distributed as part of a UKAEA introductory course on Reactor Technology held during November 1975. A nuclear power station is only one element of a dispersed interconnected arrangement of other nuclear and fossil-fired units which together constitute the national 'grid'. Thus the control of any one station must relate to the objectives of the grid network as a whole. A precise control of the supply frequency of the grid is achieved by regulating the output power of individual stations, and it is necessary for each station to be stable when operating in isolation with a variable load. As regards individual stations, several special control problems concerned with individual plant items are discussed, such as: controlled reactivity insertions, temperature reactivity time constants and flow instability. A simplified analysis establishes a fundamental relationship between the stored thermal energy of a boiler unit (a function of mechanical construction) and the flexibility of the heat source (nuclear or fossil-fired) if the station is to cope satisfactorily with demands arising from unscheduled losses of other generating sets or transmission capacity. Two basic control schemes for power station operation are described known as 'coupled' and 'decoupled control'. Each of the control modes has its own merits, which depend on the proposed station operating strategy (base load or load following) and the nature of the heat source. (U.K.)

  10. Background noise spectra of global seismic stations

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Wada, M.M.; Claassen, J.P.

    1996-08-01

    Over an extended period of time station noise spectra were collected from various sources for use in estimating the detection and location performance of global networks of seismic stations. As the database of noise spectra enlarged and duplicate entries became available, an effort was mounted to more carefully select station noise spectra while discarding others. This report discusses the methodology and criteria by which the noise spectra were selected. It also identifies and illustrates the station noise spectra which survived the selection process and which currently contribute to the modeling efforts. The resulting catalog of noise statistics not only benefits those who model network performance but also those who wish to select stations on the basis of their noise level as may occur in designing networks or in selecting seismological data for analysis on the basis of station noise level. In view of the various ways by which station noise were estimated by the different contributors, it is advisable that future efforts which predict network performance have available station noise data and spectral estimation methods which are compatible with the statistics underlying seismic noise. This appropriately requires (1) averaging noise over seasonal and/or diurnal cycles, (2) averaging noise over time intervals comparable to those employed by actual detectors, and (3) using logarithmic measures of the noise.

    1986-01-01

    A conveyor system comprises carriages drive, e.g. by a linear motor, a pre-arranged sequence of steps to move workpieces in forward and reverse directions between work stations. Each work station has a part position and a work position and each carriage has a number of compartments for workpieces spaced apart at a pitch equal to the spacing between the part and work positions at each station. Transfer means at the work stations move workpieces between the carriage compartments and the part and work positions. The workpieces can be nuclear fuel pins mounted in carriers and the carriages shuttle to and fro between adjacent stations to move fuel pins and carriers in a forward direction and the return empty carriers in a reverse direction.

  1. Central station market development strategies for photovoltaics

    Science.gov (United States)

    1980-01-01

    Federal market development strategies designed to accelerate the market penetration of central station applications of photovoltaic energy system are analyzed. Since no specific goals were set for the commercialization of central station applications, strategic principles are explored which, when coupled with specific objectives for central stations, can produce a market development implementation plan. The study includes (1) background information on the National Photovoltaic Program, photovoltaic technology, and central stations; (2) a brief market assessment; (3) a discussion of the viewpoints of the electric utility industry with respect to solar energy; (4) a discussion of commercialization issues; and (5) strategy principles. It is recommended that a set of specific goals and objectives be defined for the photovoltaic central station program, and that these goals and objectives evolve into an implementation plan that identifies the appropriate federal role.

La comprensión de la escuela como un rito requiere la observación de los movimientos internos constitutivos de la vida cotidiana escolar, así como también la comprensión de los protocolos de acciones proyectadas para ser incluidas en prácticas institucionales. En ese sentido, los niños en fila, la organización del espacio en clases agrupadas por grados, la construcción de horarios para albergar las diferentes materias y disciplinas curriculares, las interacciones del profesor y de los alumnos en el espacio del salón de clases, los pupitres, el punto registrado en el pizarrón, todo eso muestra las acciones y movimientos contenidos en lo que conocemos como vida escolar. Esta investigación se inclina hacia algunos ejemplos como un modo de constitución de la liturgia escolar, mediante el trabajo con fuentes primarias consideradas oportunas para averiguar aspectos de la vida cotidiana escolar: códigos de instrucción pública, libros escolares para la formación de profesores, libros de lectura de las escuelas primarias, revistas de enseñanza y reportes de inspección.

    The action of Electricite de France with respect to the environment of PWR nuclear power stations is essentially centred on prevention. Controls are carried out at two levels: - before the power station goes on stream (radioecological study), - when the power station is operational. The purpose of the controls effected on the radioactive effluents and the environment is to check that the maximum discharge rate stipulated in the corresponding orders is complied with and to ensure that there are no anomalies in the environment [fr

  13. Space Station Freedom combustion research

    Science.gov (United States)

    Faeth, G. M.

    1992-01-01

    Extended operations in microgravity, on board spacecraft like Space Station Freedom, provide both unusual opportunities and unusual challenges for combustion science. On the one hand, eliminating the intrusion of buoyancy provides a valuable new perspective for fundamental studies of combustion phenomena. On the other hand, however, the absence of buoyancy creates new hazards of fires and explosions that must be understood to assure safe manned space activities. These considerations - and the relevance of combustion science to problems of pollutants, energy utilization, waste incineration, power and propulsion systems, and fire and explosion hazards, among others - provide strong motivation for microgravity combustion research. The intrusion of buoyancy is a greater impediment to fundamental combustion studies than to most other areas of science. Combustion intrinsically heats gases with the resulting buoyant motion at normal gravity either preventing or vastly complicating measurements. Perversely, this limitation is most evident for fundamental laboratory experiments; few practical combustion phenomena are significantly affected by buoyancy. Thus, we have never observed the most fundamental combustion phenomena - laminar premixed and diffusion flames, heterogeneous flames of particles and surfaces, low-speed turbulent flames, etc. - without substantial buoyant disturbances. This precludes rational merging of theory, where buoyancy is of little interest, and experiments, that always are contaminated by buoyancy, which is the traditional path for developing most areas of science. The current microgravity combustion program seeks to rectify this deficiency using both ground-based and space-based facilities, with experiments involving space-based facilities including: laminar premixed flames, soot processes in laminar jet diffusion flames, structure of laminar and turbulent jet diffusion flames, solid surface combustion, one-dimensional smoldering, ignition and flame

    Somers, Richard E.; Haynes, R. Daniel

    1988-01-01

    The feasibility of using a solar water heater for NASA's Space Station is investigated using computer codes developed to model the Space Station configuration, orbit, and heating systems. Numerous orbit variations, system options, and geometries for the collector were analyzed. Results show that a solar water heater, which would provide 100 percent of the design heating load and would not impose a significant impact on the Space Station overall design is feasible. A heat pipe or pumped fluid radial plate collector of about 10-sq m, placed on top of the habitat module was found to be well suited for satisfying water demand of the Space Station. Due to the relatively small area required by a radial plate, a concentrator is unnecessary. The system would use only 7 to 10 percent as much electricity as an electric water-heating system.

    Within the Space Station program, the Data Management System (DMS) functions in a dual role. First, it provides the hardware resources and software services which support the data processing, data communications, and data storage functions of the onboard subsystems and payloads. Second, it functions as an integrating entity which provides a common operating environment and human-machine interface for the operation and control of the orbiting Space Station systems and payloads by both the crew and the ground operators. This paper discusses the evolution and derivation of the requirements and issues which have had significant effect on the design of the Space Station DMS, describes the DMS components and services which support system and payload operations, and presents the current architectural view of the system as it exists in October 1986; one-and-a-half years into the Space Station Phase B Definition and Preliminary Design Study.

    Radioactive ion exchange resins and sludges arise at nuclear power stations from various operations associated with effluent treatment and liquid waste management. As the result of an intensive development programme, the Central Electricity Generating Board (CEGB) has designed a process to convert power station resins and sludges into a shielded, packaged solid monolithic form suitable for final disposal. Research and development, the generic CEGB sludge/resin conditioning plant and the CEGB Active Waste Project are described. (U.K.)

    Final work station along walking-beam conveyor of solar-array assembly line turns each pretabbed solar cell over, depositing it back-side-up onto landing pad, which centers cell without engaging collector surface. Solar cell arrives at inverting work station collector-side-up with two interconnect tabs attached to collector side. Cells are inverted so that second soldering operation takes place in plain view of operator. Inversion protects collector from damage when handled at later stages of assembly.
