Ship and Offshore Structure Design in Climate Change Perspective (SpringerBriefs in Climate Studies)

by Elzbieta Maria Bitner-Gregersen and Lars Ingolf Eide

This book summarizes results of longstanding research and scientific contributions from many projects and relevant working groups. It collects and evaluates wind and wave climate projections under changing climate having design needs and marine safety in focus. Potential impact of projected climate change in met-ocean conditions on ships and offshore structures is discussed and illustrated by an example of the expected wave climate change on tanker design. The monograph is intended for students, researchers and industry based engineers who want a summary of the many studies that have been carried out on climate change effects on wind and waves and their importance for design and operations of ship and offshore structures. The reader needs only a moderate knowledge of marine wind and wave ...

Rethinking the Internet of Things: A Scalable Approach to Connecting Everything

by Francis daCosta and Byron Henderson

Apress is proud to announce that Rethinking the Internet of Things was a 2014 Jolt Award Finalist, the highest honor for a programming book. And the amazing part is that there is no code in the book.Over the next decade, most devices connected to the Internet will not be used by people in the familiar way that personal computers, tablets and smart phones are. Billions of interconnected devices will be monitoring the environment, transportation systems, factories, farms, forests, utilities, soil and weather conditions, oceans and resources.Many of these sensors and actuators will be networked into autonomous sets, with much of the information being exchanged machine-to-machine directly and without human involvement. Machine-to-machine communications are typically terse. Most sensors and act...

A History of Radionuclide Studies in the UK: 50th Anniversary of the British Nuclear Medicine Society

by Ralph McCready and Gopinath Gnanasegaran

The British Nuclear Medicine Society celebrates its 50th Anniversary with this booklet, which reflects the research of many of the pioneers in the use of radionuclides for the diagnosis and therapy of human disease. Since 1949 there have been remarkable advances in radionuclide techniques and imaging equipment: from the first devices “home-made” in the many physics departments throughout the UK, to the sophisticated multimodality imagers now in everyday use in Nuclear Medicine. The BNMS has been instrumental in promoting the use of radionuclide techniques in the investigation of pathology by supporting and providing education, research and guidelines on the optimum use of radiation to help patients. The future of Nuclear Medicine is bright, thanks to improved imaging resolution, new ra...

One Hundred Years of Chemical Warfare: Research, Deployment, Consequences

by Bretislav Friedrich and Dieter Hoffmann

This book is open access under a CC BY-NC 2.5 license. On April 22, 1915, the German military released 150 tons of chlorine gas at Ypres, Belgium. Carried by a long-awaited wind, the chlorine cloud passed within a few minutes through the British and French trenches, leaving behind at least 1,000 dead and 4,000 injured. This chemical attack, which amounted to the first use of a weapon of mass destruction, marks a turning point in world history. The preparation as well as the execution of the gas attack was orchestrated by Fritz Haber, the director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry in Berlin-Dahlem. During World War I, Haber transformed his research institute into a center for the development of chemical weapons (and of the means of protection agains...

Cognitive Supervision for Robot-Assisted Minimally Invasive Laser Surgery (Springer Theses)

by Loris Fichera

This thesis lays the groundwork for the automaticsupervision of the laser incision process, which aims to complement surgeons’perception of the state of tissues and enhance their control over laserincisions. The research problem is formulated as the estimation of variablesthat are representative of the state of tissues during laser cutting. Priorresearch in this area leveraged numerical computation methods that bear a highcomputational cost and are not straightforward to use in a surgical setting.This book proposes a novel solution to this problem, using models inspired bythe ability of experienced surgeons to perform precise and clean laser cutting.It shows that these new models, which were extracted from experimental datausing statistical learning techniques, are straightforward to use...

The Illusion of Risk Control: What Does it Take to Live With Uncertainty? (SpringerBriefs in Safety Management)

by Gilles Motet and Corinne Bieder

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book explores the implications of acknowledging uncertainty and black swans for regulation of high-hazard technologies, for stakeholder acceptability of potentially hazardous activities and for risk governance. The conventional approach to risk assessment, which combines the likelihood of an event and the severity of its consequences, is poorly suited to situations where uncertainty and ambiguity are prominent features of the risk landscape. The new definition of risk used by ISO, “the effect of uncertainty on [achievement of] one’s objectives”, recognizes this paradigm change. What lessons can we draw from the management of fire hazards in Edo-era Japan? Are there situations in which increasing uncertainty allows more effective...

Voices of Labor: Creativity, Craft, and Conflict in Global Hollywood

by Michael Curtin and Kevin Sanson

Motion pictures are made, not mass produced, requiring a remarkable collection of skills, self-discipline, and sociality—all of which are sources of enormous pride among Hollywood’s craft and creative workers. The interviews collected here showcase the ingenuity, enthusiasm, and aesthetic pleasures that attract people to careers in the film and television industries. They also reflect critically on changes in the workplace brought about by corporate conglomeration and globalization. Rather than offer publicity-friendly anecdotes by marquee celebrities, Voices of Labor presents off-screen observations about the everyday realities of Global Hollywood. Ranging across job categories—from showrunner to make-up artist to location manager—this collection features voices of labor from Los ...
