A snare in every human path: "Tamerlane" and the Paternal Scapegoat

Description: This book chapter examines Edgar Allan Poe's poem "Tamerlane" through Poe's reimagination of the artist-as-scapegoat figure as a viable alternative for preserving artistic integrity in the face of paternal and literary authority.

The last years of Dallas Bible College (1983-1985)

Description: This study explores the reasons behind the close of the Dallas Bible College in 1985. It surveys the history but emphasizes the events from 1983 to 1985. The study investigates the change of mission, location, and name which occurred in the final year of existence. Also included is an extended study of disunity on the board of directors. Exploration is made of reasons why no strong leadership emerged to step in and save the school as it was on its downward path.

The replacement of geothermal reservoir brine as a means of reducing solids precipitation and scale formation

Description: A number of technical difficulties are encountered in producing geothermal energy from reservoirs containing brines with high concentrations of dissolved solids. The reduction in temperature and pressure associated with brine production results in the precipitation of solids which can form heavy scale in producing and injection wells and in surface equipment. Evidently under many conditions precipitates form in the reservoir surrounding producing wells, thereby reducing their productivity. In some cases the precipitation of solids is so severe that it can prevent economic production. This paper presents results of an investigation of the possibility of injecting a different water in a geothermal reservoir as a means of reducing problems caused by solids precipitation and scale formation. Corrosion problems may also be reduced depending upon the water-rock-metal behavior. The results are confined chiefly to reservoir mechanics, a logical first step in evaluating the process for a given reservoir. Water-rock chemistry, water treating, water supply, brine disposal and overall economics are discussed only briefly or are beyond the scope of this paper. In general the composition of water injected into geothermal reservoirs does not remain the same. In addition to mixing with the original water the injected water tends to equilibrate with the reservoir rock. if fresh water is injected it may pick up such minerals as silica, carbonate, iron, sulfur, etc. These minerals may precipitate and cause problems in producing the reservoir. Nevertheless, under suitable conditions, a change in the reservoir water may be an attractive alternative to cycling the original reservoir brine.

Roller Burnishing - A Cold Working Tool to Reduce Weld Induced Residual Stress

Description: The possibility of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in regions of tensile residual stress introduced by weld deposited material has been a concern where environmental effects can reduce component life. Roller burnishing, a form of mechanical cold-working, has been considered as a means of providing for residual stress state improvements. This paper provides a computational evaluation of the roller burnishing process to address the permanent deformation needed to introduce a desirable residual stress state. The analysis uses a series of incrementally applied pressure loadings and finite element methodology to simulate the behavior of a roller burnishing tool. Various magnitudes of applied pressure loadings coupled with different size plates and boundary conditions are examined to assess the degree and depth of the residual compressive stress state after cold working. Both kinematic and isotropic hardening laws are evaluated.

A vector study of linearized supersonic flow applications to nonplanar problems

Description: Report presenting a vector study of the partial-differential equation of steady linearized supersonic flow. General expressions are derived which relate the velocity potential in the stream to the conditions on the disturbing surfaces. A discussion of problems dealing with planar bodies is given and the conditions for the solution to be unique are investigated.

A vector study of linearized supersonic flow applications to nonplanar problems

Description: A vector study of the partial-differential equation of steady linearized supersonic flow is presented. General expressions which relate the velocity potential in the stream to the conditions on the disturbing surfaces, are derived. In connection with these general expressions the concept of the finite part of an integral is discussed. A discussion of problems dealing with planar bodies is given and the conditions for the solution to be unique are investigated. Problems concerning nonplanar systems are investigated, and methods are derived for the solution of some simple nonplanar bodies. The surface pressure distribution and the damping in roll are found for rolling tails consisting of four, six, and eight rectangular fins for the Mach number range where the region of interference between adjacent fins does not affect the fin tips.

The calculation of downwash behind wings of arbitrary plan form at supersonic speeds

Description: Report presenting exact and approximate methods based on linearized supersonic flow theory for the calculation of the velocity potential and the downwash from thin wings of arbitrary plan form. The applicability of the method inherently depends on a knowledge of the load distribution over the plan form of the wing.
