Most widely held works by David W Shaw
Cyberchase ( visu )
26 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 1,520 libraries worldwide
The villainous Hacker is determined to rule Cyberchase - no matter what it takes. But he never will - at least, not if Jackie, Matt, and Inez have anything to say about it. These three young heroes embark on thrilling adventures - from tackling time in ancient Egyptian tombs to cracking codes in creepy caves - in their quest to foil Hacker's dastardly schemes. In the wacky live action segments that ends each show, tween characters show that math can also save the day in real life

Sea wolf of the Confederacy : the daring Civil War raids of naval lt. Charles W. Read by David W Shaw( Book )
6 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 503 libraries worldwide
"In June 1863, just days before the epic clash at Gettysburg ended the last rebel land invasion of the North, a small party of the Confederate Navy mounted a devastating series of raids on the New England coast, culminating in a battle off Portland, Maine. Veteran author David W. Shaw brilliantly re-creates this almost forgotten chapter of the Civil War in rich narrative detail drawn from accounts of the participants." "At the center of the conflict were two men: the hotheaded young adventurer Charles W. Read, who resigned his commission as a Union midshipman to become a lieutenant in the Confederate Navy; and Secretary of the United States Navy Gideon Welles, a well-connected politician who ably oversaw the explosive growth of the fleet - including the revolutionary ironclads - during the war despite his lack of maritime experience. Serving aboard CSS Florida off the coast of Brazil, Read hatched a daring plan to sail a captured brig directly into the Union's home waters and wreak havoc on their shipping lanes. Burning or capturing more than twenty merchant vessels in less then three weeks, and switching ships several times to elude capture, Read's rampage caused widespread panic in Northern cities, made headlines in the major daily newspapers, and brought enormous pressure on Welles to "stop the rebel pirate." At one point there were nearly forty Union ships sent to hunt down Read in a cat-and-mouse game that finally led to his dramatic capture off the coast of Maine."--Jacket

Die Eroberung des Horizonts die wahre Geschichte der ersten Männer, die über den Atlantik ruderten by David W Shaw( Book )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in German and Undetermined and held by 16 libraries worldwide
Find those gleamers Codename: Icky ( visu )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 15 libraries worldwide
In Find Those Gleamers, the Hacker challenges Jackie, Matt and Inez to a contest on cyber-wide television! In order to prove to all of Cyberspace that Hacker's not as powerful or smart as he seems--the kids return to Topsy-Turvy Island on the Northern Frontier for the contest. Their mission is to power up a Mini-Wreaker using cyber-fireflies of varying power before the island turns inside out at sunset. The kids must use algebraic equations to determine how many Gleamers--and how much power--they'll need. The Big Idea: When you use a letter to stand in for a number that repeats or changes in a problem, you can simplify the arithmetic and make the problem easier to solve. In Codename: Icky, the kids and Hacker go in search of a giant cyber-slug, who feeds on pure energy. The kids and Digit travel underwater in two separate vessels, but Hacker has a listening device that taps into their communications system, allowing him to overhear their plans and track every move they make. The kids outsmart Hacker by devising a series of codes so they can send messages back and forth in secret even though Hacker can hear what they're saying. But unless the kids can reach the slug first, Hacker will use the slug to attack Motherboard's circuitry and disable her once and for all! The Big Idea: You can use a code (a communication system that substitutes one thing for another) to send top-secret messages as long as your code has an adjustable rule that can be reversed to read the message
Edifice stability assessment of Lassen Peak, Lassen Volcanic National Park, California by David W Shaw( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Lassen Peak (one of the largest active lava domes on Earth) is the southernmost active volcano in the Cascade Range, located in Lassen Volcanic National Park (LVNP), California. Large scale slope failures have been identified in other areas of LVNP, but not at Lassen Peak, which may be prone to major instabilities, as eruptions within the past 100 years and its relatively active tectonic setting may have weakened its dome and edifice. This edifice stability assessment of Lassen Peak focused on locating hydrothermally altered and / or structurally weakened zones, quantifying geotechnical properties of the rock mass, and modeling potential failure surfaces within the edifice using limit equilibrium slope stability techniques. Results of the assessment indicate that the northeast and northwest flanks are the most likely areas for catastrophic circular (global) failures, though these potential instabilities would likely need to by triggered by a combination of earthquake loading and elevated fluid (groundwater, gas, or magma) pressures. Understanding fluid pressures within active volcanoes is a complex issue, where some of the destabilizing forces are functions of rock mass permeability, the depths of intrusions, magma degassing, and magma viscosity. Water table sensitivity analyses were performed to estimate equivalent fluid pressures and indirectly model gas and magma pressures. Due to the highly cohesive rock mass, the circular failures may be deep-seated, potentially displacing rock volumes up to 4 cubic km from the northeast flank and 2 cubic km from the northwest flank. Based on field observations and trends in structural data, a large-scale planar failure (displacing about 0.1 cubic km) is possible within the southeast flank but would require triggering by elevated joint fluid pressures and/or seismic loading
