The Food Drug Administration (FDA) Food Code 2013 contains the latest FDA advice on preventing foodborne disease in food outlets including restaurants, grocery stores, and food vending operations. It consists of model requirements for safeguarding public health and ensuring that food offered to the consumer is safe, unadulterated, and honestly presented. The model is adopted … Read moreFood Code 2013 (on CD-ROM) (powered by Flipviewer).
NASA’s long-range goal is focused upon human exploration of Mars. Missions to Mars will require campaigns of multiple launches to assemble Mars Transfer Vehicles in Earth orbit. Launch campaigns are subject to delays, launch vehicles can fail to place their payloads into the required orbit, and spacecraft may fail during the assembly process or while … Read moreLaunch and Assembly Reliability Analysis for Mars Human Space Exploration Missions
The United States Bureau of Mines of the Department of the Interior was established in 1910 by the Department of the Interior and abolished on March 30, 1996. NTIS maintains the entire collection of the Bureau’s publications, some 5,000 documents. This page lists the printed indexes that are available to locate these publications as well … Read moreBureau of Mines Publications and Journal Articles 1910-1996
Developing CIGS solar cells calls for the understanding of materials and processing in order to translate the record small efficiency to module and the strategy to produce thin cells for materials and processing saving. This project has exploited nanostructuring of CIG solar cells, including nanowires and nanotextured substrates. We showed that nanowires function as well-defined … Read moreCuln(Ga)Se2 (CIGS) Nanowire Solar Cells
The research, development, deployment and demonstration (RDD&D) conducted under this US Department of Energy (DOE) Advanced Water Power Program (AWPP) project has significantly contributed to advancing the design and construction of stronger, larger, and higher-capacity composite turbine blades for use in the nascent Marine and Hydrokinetic (MHK) renewable energy industry. MHK turbines convert energy from … Read moreImproved Structure and Fabrication of Large, High-Power KHPS Rotors, Final Scientific/Technical Report
Soil has a long and successful history as trace evidence. Originally, the use of soil as trace evidence was accomplished via light microscopy. But the value of soil as trace evidence has expanded significantly with the development of new techniques. Most recently these include using the biochemical molecules from soil microbial communities to make a … Read moreDeveloping a High Throughput Protocol for using Soil Molecular Biology as Trace Evidence. Final Technical Report
In the past several years there has been considerable interest and effort in assessing wind integration costs (solar integration costs have not been as rigorously pursued but this is expected to change with increasing solar energy penetration). This interest is understandable, because wind energy does increase the variability and uncertainty that must be managed on … Read moreIntegration Costs: Are They Unique to Wind and Solar Energy
The report, from the National League of Cities US Conference of Mayors reports that most mayors expect their cities deployments of new energy technologies to increase over the next five years, despite today’s economic climate. Three in four cities (75%) say their use of new energy technologies is likely to grow, with more than one-quarter … Read moreUnited States Conference of Mayors.
