Profiles of the Round Turbulent Jet in A Cross Flow
The shape of a jet issuing normal to a uniform cross wind has been studied experimentally for a large range of jet-to-wind velocity ratios, R,...

Mapping Standards for Urban Planning
Accurate and up-to-date surveys and maps are essential for community planning, but available mapping is not meeting the requirements of planners. Better coordination and integration are...

Apollo Lunar Landing Site Selection Process
The selection of potential lunar landing sites for the Apollo Program poses some unusual problems. Among the factors to be considered are geographic location on the moon, surface topography,...
