The master of Ballantrae : a winter's tale by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

11 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Stevenson's tale of father - son confrontation, the father, Adam Weir, is modelled on Lord Braxfield, the eighteenth-century 'hanging judge'. Weir, a 'risen man' who has married a wealthy but weak woman, is both feared and respected, not least by his own son, Archie. At a public hanging, Archie speaks out against capital punishment, knowing that it was his own father who sentenced the man
The ebb-tide : a trio and quartette by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

13 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is Tahiti in the 1890's and three men, an American sea captain, an English gentleman and a cockney thief, are 'on the beach'. Dispossessed and destitute, the 'trio' agree to sail a smallpox-infected ship loaded with champagne to Sydney, Australia, plotting to steal the cargo, scupper the vessel, and head for the 'Dangerous Archipelago'. Predictably, the thieves fall out. They lose their course and are driven towards an uncharted island which flies the red ensign. The owner of the island, also an English gentleman, has amassed a fortune in pearls. He is both a stern disciplinarian and a religious megalomaniac. As the protagonists in this 'quartette' begin to play out their parts, the plot moves to its dramatic, but ambiguous, conclusion. Stevenson's tale of exploitation in the South Seas recreates both the period and the place through a brilliant exploration of the moral corruption of colonisation

The collected poems of Robert Louis Stevenson by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Louis Stevenson has always been a writer's writer. Contemporaries like Arthur Conan Doyle and Henry James were awed by his kaleidoscopic invention and the flawless "English" of his prose, while later authors like Somerset Maugham and Robertson Davies, drawn to the physical and psychological exotica of his subject, introduced him into their own writing-a quasi-postmodernist way of elevating their own status by alluding to his achievement and doffing their hats at the same time. Yet Stev

Effect of Roof Load on Substantial Dividing Wall (SDW) Protection( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NAVFAC ESC) was tasked by the U.S. Department of Defense Explosive Safety Board (DDESB) to evaluate the effect of roof load on the protection provided by substantial dividing walls (SDW). The latest DDESB Substantial Dividing Wall (SDW) guidance memo (January 2003) allows the placement of up to 425 pounds of Sensitivity Group (SG) 1 through SG 4 explosives in a partial containment bay for siting purposes. The application of this SDW guidance includes a weight limit of 10 psf for all frangible surfaces. If one of the frangible surfaces is a roof, the memo requires consideration of the site specific snow load in calculating the roof's weight. In many areas of the U.S. the snow load is too high to allow the roof to be considered a frangible surface. In other areas, snow may not be present, but the actual roof weight may exceed 10 psf anyway. As a result, the SDW memo often cannot be applied and the SDWs must be analyzed according to criteria developed for the U.S. Navy High Performance Magazine Non-Propagation Wall. The resulting net explosive weight (NEW) limits are often too low to satisfy minimum operational requirements for preventing propagation of detonation. This paper examines the effect of additional roof loading using three storage facilities (described in Section 3.0) as examples. Roof loads between 10 psf and 40 psf are examined as well as charge weights up to 425 pounds
Multidisciplinary Redesign of Hill Air Force Base Modular Storage Magazine for Orote Point, Guam. 2010 DDESB Seminar( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center (NAVFAC ESC) was tasked by NAVFAC Pacific in FY09 to analyze and provide technical support to adapt the Hill Air Force Base (AFB) Modular Storage Magazine (MSM) for use at Orote Point, Guam. The objective of this effort focused on four design issues (1) satisfying seismic design criteria in regions of high seismicity, (2) eliminating safety issues during stowing and retrieving ordnance from the MSM, (3) satisfying physical security protection criteria, and (4) ensuring the structural modifications satisfied explosives safety standards. The final MSM is an earth-covered, reinforced concrete box with a single sliding door. NAVFAC Pacific was responsible for overall design and satisfying user requirements. NAVFAC ESC was responsible for explosives safety and physical security requirements. The final design addresses several outstanding issues. Structural analysis was conducted to meet seismic criteria for the Guam region. The magazine roof, sidewalls, front headwall, and door have been modified to meet the required explosive safety standards. The change from a double swinging door to a single sliding door satisfies physical security and logistics requirements. The change will enhance ordnance handling operations. Physical security requirements were considered upfront by integrating access delay technologies and advance locking systems into the door and headwall. This paper summarizes the critical design details and advanced analysis methods used to guide and validate the design changes; including finite element, Single Degree of Freedom analysis and parameter studies
