Creative Engineering Design Using Analogy
Designs in different domains vary in structure, performance and in many other aspects. However, their design purposes can be achieved in a limited number of ways. In this paper, we classify...

The North Black Sea and the Sea of Azov Coasts Under a Possible Greenhouse-Induced Global Sea-Level Rise
The first attempt is presented to compile a map of coastal evolution of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov under the possible accelerated greenhouse-induced sea-level rise by 1m (medium...

Numerical Solution of Transient Closed-Conduit Flow Equations by the Method of Lines Along Characteristics
The method of characteristics has long been considered as a natural technique for solving transient closed-conduit problems. In this paper, by using the concept of the method of lines,...

Uranyl Oxide Hydrates and Uraninite Corrosion: Relevance to Natural Analogue Studies of Spent Fuel Corrosion

Discrete Fracture Simulations of the Hydrogeology at Koongarra, Northern Territory, Australia

Application of Results from the Poços de Caldas Project in the Kristallin-I HLW Performance Assessment

Multi-Barrier, Copper-Base Containers for HLW Disposal

The Role of Natural Analogues in Performance Assessment: Applications and Limitations

Solubility of Uranyl in Brine

Natural Analogues: The State of Play in 1992

Analog Electronic Simulations of a Nonlinear System
We perform electronic analog simulations of a harmonically forced Duffing oscillator. The addition of noise perturbations of sufficient intensity is shown to induce transitions between...

Lumped Parameter Model for the Dynamics of the Pulmonary Circulation
The pulmonary circulation is a low pressure system such that respiration has an important effect on pulmonary hemodynamics and has to be taken into account when predicting its behavior....

A Formalism to Generate Probability Distributions for Performance-Assessment Modeling
A formalism is presented for generating probability distributions of parameters used in performance-assessment modeling. The formalism is used when data are either sparse or nonexistent....

An Inexpensive Automatic Control System for Soil Testing
This paper describes an inexpensive automatic control system for soils testing. The system comprises a microcomputer, an analog to digital converter, a relay board, and solenoid valves....

Migrating East Australian Barriers and Reefs Under Greenhouse Scenario
Geological evidence which bears directly on the question of human-induced sea-level change and migrating shorelines is difficult to find. If we could find an ancient analog of the rapid...

Data Acquisition Systems for IBM Compatible System
Portable data acquisition systems composed of IBM compatible PC/XT/AT computers and analog to digital conversion cards can be configured with relative ease. These systems have the flexibility...

Underground Space on Earth: Analog for a Lunar Base

El Malpais Lava Tubes: Analog to Lunar Lava Tubes

Conservation Properties of Flow Simulation Models
The fundamental equations of fluid mechanics and hydraulics posses certain integral properties which should be maintained by their discrete analogs. In this paper the conservation properties...

A Toolset for Tailoring Processor Architectures
The M2 toolset is a collection of programs for determining combinations of algorithms, architectures, and fabrications which meet a set of application constraints. The paper describes...
