Re-Evaluation and Recommendations for Redesign of the World Trade Center : Final Report
After the collapse of the World Trade Center, Towers 1 and 2, several questions were raised about the fire protection, egress and emergency evacuation systems. Full engineering services were provided to analyze the design of these systems to investigate what improvements can be made to keep the buildings standing longer, which could have saved more lives. Towers 1 and 2 each has a building footprint of an acre, stood 110 stories tall, housed 50,000 employees and an additional 26,000 visitors da
Hydrophone spatial averaging corrections from 1 to 100 MHz
The purpose of this work was to develop and experimentally verify a set of robust and readily applicable spatial averaging models to account for ultrasonic hydrophone probe's finite aperture in acoustic field measurements in the frequency range 1 - 100 MHz. Electronically and mechanically focused acoustic sources of different geometries were considered. The geometrics included single element circular sources and rectangular shape tranducers that were representative of ultrasound imaging arrays u
How to Predict the Wind from Isobars
Video is narrated by Melissa Schenk, a meteorologist. Predicting the wind is an aspect of weather prediction you'll want to master before becoming a meteorologist, learn how to predict the weather. In this video she discusses wind is important in forecasting temperature, isobars (which are a line of constant pressure), if isobars are close together or far apart, how these affect the wind, direction of wind and how these affect the temperature that is going to occur. This video includes closed ca
The Language of Mathematics (10): Finding Prime Factors
The instructor continues in his series by discussing prime numbers and rational and irrational numbers. How many numbers are there between 1 and 20. This instructor says there are only nine numbers between 1 and 20. Watch this video and find out why. He assumes his audience is a high school audience, but middle school and upper elementary may benefit from this video as well.
Derecho Internacional Privado (2012)
El Derecho internacional privado (= DIPr.) es el sector del ordenamiento jurídico de cada Estado que se ocupa de la regulación jurídica de las “situaciones privadas internacionales” (= “concepción privatista del DIPr.”). Esta concepción privatista del DIPr. es una concepción con coherencia científica (=el objeto del DIPr. está compuesto por una serie de relaciones jurídicas de caracteres similares: son relaciones entre particulares y que presentan carácter internacional). Es un

In this monograph, Butler Shaffer addresses an important question that has aroused much interest among libertarians: What is the status of intellectual property? Are patents and copyrights legitimate? This is a major contribution to libertarian legal theory and an indispensable guide to a vital topic. Narrated by Clay Barnett. Music by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com).

Throughout known architectural history, representation, media and design have been recognized to have a close relationship. This relationship is inseparable; representation being a means for engaging in design thinking and making and this activity requiring media. Interpretations as to what exactly this relationship is or means have been subject to debate, disagreement and change along the ages. Whereas much has been said about the interactions between representation and design, little has been
One question regarding orphan works is the role public and private registries might play in any orphan works solution. The most obvious of these registries, the Copyright Office's own registration and recordation system, provides a wealth of copyright information but has limitations based on both technological requirements and the fact that registration and recordation is not mandatory in the United States. There are other registries that have ownership information, and there has been some sugge
6.828 teaches the fundamentals of engineering operating systems. The following topics are studied in detail: virtual memory, kernel and user mode, system calls, threads, context switches, interrupts, interprocess communication, coordination of concurrent activities, and the interface between software and hardware. Most importantly, the interactions between these concepts are examined. The course is divided into two blocks; the first block introduces an operating system, xv6, which runs on x
WAIS seminar: Alan Walks Wales: Data and Challenges
In this course, evolutionary pathways that have led to the development of innate and adaptive immunity are analyzed, the conserved and unique features of the immune response from bacteria to higher vertebrates is traced, and factors, such as adaptive changes in pathogens that have shaped the evolution of immune system are identified.This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest

The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow is a major passive stabilizer againstvalgus moments and is a frequent site of injury for the professional throwing athlete. Due to theimportance of the UCL in elbow stabilization, many clinical and biomechanical studies wereconducted in the past to understand its role; however, no study has evaluated the stabilizingfunction of the UCL when subjected to a pure valgus-varus moment at varying degrees of flexion.In addition, few comparative studies ha
Welcome to ‘Personality and Values’, one of several ‘Futures’ workbooks, which help you choose and prepare a career route after graduation. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio The aim of this workbook is to help you to clarify or identify your personality type and work values as a step toward choosing work
This video explains how to add mixed numbers that have the same denominators. A problem is presented and the tutorial goes through all the steps to solve. NOTE: the sound is NOT good, the narrator's voice is completely robotic. The end of the video shows how a quiz would be taken on their website (promotional). The instruction stops after 03:30.
