Building the bombs : a history of the nuclear weapons complex by Charles R Loeber( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 276 libraries worldwide
The Nuclear Weapons Complex (NWC) is a nationwide group of government-owned sites that is responsible for the design, development, production, modification, repair, assemble, disassembly, and testing of all nuclear weapons in the U S stockpile. The NWC has evolved since the beginning of the Manhattan Project in 1942 to meet national security objectives. It has met these objectives by: building the weapons that ended World War II; building a stockpile of weapons that served as a deterrent to the Soviet Union during the Cold War; incorporating new technologies into the stockpile; safely downsizing the stockpile and dismantling the excess nuclear weapons after the Cold War was over, and ensuring that the remaining stockpile is safe and reliable. This book provides a high level summary of this story. It begins in 1905 with Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity and his famous equation, E=mc2, and ends in the year 2001 with a discussion of the post-Cold War challenges for the NWC. It explains how and why the NWC grew from three sites at the start of the Manhattan Project to over fifty sites at the height of the Cold War, to eight sites-three laboratories, four production plants and one test site-after the Cold War ended

Origins, goals, and tactics of the U.S. anti-nuclear protest movement by Victoria Daubert( Book )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 132 libraries worldwide
"This Note describes the origins, goals and tactics of the anti-nuclear-weapons and anti-nuclear-energy protest movements in the United States; characterizes American anti-nuclear protest activities of the past several years, and compares them with analogous protests abroad; and suggests some approaches for using this information to assess the potential for violent actions against U.S. nuclear-energy and nuclear-weapons installations. Appendixes include brief histories of the Clamshell Alliance and the Livermore Action Group, and a chronology of anti-nuclear protests from 1977 to 1983"--Rand abstracts

Discrete element methods : numerical modeling of discontinua : proceedings of the third international conference September 23-25, 2002, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA by International Conference on Discrete Element Methods( Book )
4 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 101 libraries worldwide
This proceedings contains 72 technical papers from a September 2002 conference on discrete element methods (DEM), a suite of numerical techniques developed to model granular materials, rock, and other discontinua at the grain scale. Topics addressed include DEM formulation and implementation techniques, coupled methods, experimental validation, and applications. Formulation and implementation techniques cover 3D particle representations, efficient contact detection algorithms, particle packing schemes, and code design. Coupled methods discussed include approaches to linking solid continuum and fluid models with DEM to stimulate multiscale and multiphase phenomena. Applications described include fundamental investigations of granular mechanics, and micromechanical studies of powder, soil, and rock behavior.
