Wake Meandering -- An Analysis of Instantaneous 2d Laser Measurements
The vast majority of wind turbines are today erected in wind farms. As a consequence, wake generated loads are becoming more and more important. We present a new experimental technique to measure the instantaneous wake deficit directly, thus allowing us to quantify the wake meandering as well as the instantaneous wake expansion expressed in a meandering frame of reference. The experimental results are subsequently used in a preliminary verification of the basic conjecture of a wake meandering mo

"Labor Has To Be International:" David Abdulah Describes Workers Strategies for Organizing Transnati
The power, global reach, and flexibility of multi-national corporations increased dramatically during the 1980's and 1990's as a revolution in communications technology and the increasing adoption of free trade agreements between countries allowed companies to shift production easily from one part of the globe to another. Many companies could now pressure labor unions by negotiating favorable contracts wherever labor costs and local tax laws suited them. However, the increasingly interwoven glob

WWII: The War Economy - US History: from Civil War to Present
What does it mean to be an American? Far from being a fixed concept, over the past 150 years American identity has been constructed and reconstructed through the conflicts, interchanges, and negotiations between different ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. In this course, we will pay particular attention to two major transformations in American identity: the shift from a conception of citizenship grounded on race to one grounded on shared democratic ideals; and the development of the United

This Dynamic Earth: The Story of Plate Tectonics
In the early 1960s, the emergence of the theory of plate tectonics started a revolution in the earth sciences. Since then, scientists have verified and refined this theory, and now have a much better understanding of how our planet has been shaped by plate-tectonic processes. We now know that, directly or indirectly, plate tectonics influences nearly all geologic processes, past and present. Indeed, the notion that the entire Earth's surface is continually shifting has profoundly changed the way
