Interview by A. R Boone( )
1 edition published in 1937 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Photocopy of a microfilmed copy of a typescript of an interview. Boone was interviewed by T. Pat Matthews in 1937 as part of the Federal Writer's Project for the Works Progress Administration. The item includes handwritten corrections. Boone gives a description of the plantation work and living conditions of slaves. He also describes in detail slave sales and the grueling slave whippings. He adds that he was afraid of the Yankees during the Civil War and that after emancipation everything stayed essentially the same. The black folks did the work and white folks got the money
Feasibility of Floating Platform Systems for Wind Turbines Preprint by Walter D Musial( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This paper provides a general technical description of several types of floating platforms for wind turbines. Platform topologies are classified into multiple- or single-turbine floaters and by mooring method. Platforms using catenary mooring systems are contrasted to vertical mooring systems and the advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Specific anchor types are described in detail. A rough cost comparison is performed for two different platform architectures using a generic 5-MW wind turbine. One platform is a Dutch study of a tri-floater platform using a catenary mooring system, and the other is a mono-column tension-leg platform developed at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Cost estimates showed that single unit production cost is $7.1 M for the Dutch tri-floater, and $6.5 M for the NREL TLP concept. However, value engineering, multiple unit series production, and platform/turbine system optimization can lower the unit platform costs to $4.26 M and $2.88 M, respectively, with significant potential to reduce cost further with system optimization. These foundation costs are within the range necessary to bring the cost of energy down to the DOE target range of $0.05/kWh for large-scale deployment of offshore floating wind turbines
Crew-Centered Cockpit Design (CCCD) Field Demonstration Program. Volume 1 ( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This report was prepared in two volumes. This is Volume 1 of Interim Technical Report No. 1 for the Crew-Centered Cockpit Design (CCCD) Field Demonstration Program, Contract F33615-92-C-5936, Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) Sequence Number AOIO. Volume 1 discusses technical accomplishments and results. Volume 2 contains supplementary material in the form of twelve appendices. (Volume 2 can be obtained by referring to Reference 66, Section 7.) The objectives of the CCCD Field Demonstration Program are to upgrade, validate, and transition a new system for cockpit design. The system consists of a Crew- Centered System Design Process (CSDP) and a set of computer-aided tools known as the Cockpit Design System (CDS). This report summarizes accomplishments during the period September 1992 through June 1993 that include: development of an improved CSDP; system support and management; design of new tools to manage and trace design progress; conversion and improvements to existing software tools; and restructuring of real-time simulation software. The progress on the first of five Field Demonstrations, known as the F-16 Reconnaissance Mission, is described and includes information on planning, crew system analysis tasks, prototyping of design alternatives, and reconfiguration of the real-time simulator
