The Mining Industry in the Territory of Alaska During the Calendar Year 1915

Description: From Introduction: "This condition is likely to be serious, as preparations have been made for opening the Matanuska, Bering River, and Neanna coal fields, and a number of permits granting the free use of 10-acre tracts in other fields throughout the Territory have been issued.The need of a comprehensive inspection law and experienced engineers to safeguard the opening of coal mines by operators who are not familiar with coal mining and are using inexperienced help is obvious."

Regulation of Explosives in the United States: with Especial Reference to the Administration of the Explosives Act of October 6, 1917, by the Bureau of Mines

Description: From Origin of Federal Explosives Act, October 6, 1917: " A competent force from the Bureau of Mines was then assigned to study the laws and ordinances of countries, States, and municipalities in which lawas and ordinances regulating explosives have been enacted, and especially to ascertain how these laws had been modified by the necessities of the existing state of war, and, also, wherein the proposed law might conflict with or overlap the jurisdiction of existing laws. This incomplete enumeration of the peace-time uses of explosives shows that the quantity consumed is large. A more definite conception is given by the following statistics of production, to which is added statistics for exportation that disclose something of the effect of war on the explosives industry."

Pennsylvania Mining Statutes Annotated

Description: From Author's Explanation: "This bulletin is intended to include every legislative enactment of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania relating to the mining and mineral industries. The entire body of mining laws is set out for these obvious reasons: (1) To show the progress and advancement made, and the changes through which the enactments have passed; (2) an author may not assume the determination of what particular laws are in fact in effect, as this is within the jurisdiction of the courts alone; (3) it was at least necessary to set out all acts that had at any time been construed by the courts."

State Compensatory Provisions for Occupational Diseases

Description: From Introduction: "This publication includes the laws of the States, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Island through 1964.

Regulation of Air Traffic

Description: The ways in which the international and internal French air traffic accords interact with each other is outlined in this report. The principal questions covered by the present legislation are as follows: 1) Conditions of safety which must be fulfilled by aircraft; 2) Licenses for members of the crew; 3) Traffic rules to be observed by French and foreign aircraft.

Unemployment Insurance: Consequences of Changes in State Unemployment Compensation Laws

Description: This report analyzes recent changes to state Unemployment Compensation (UC) programs. Two categories of UC state law issues are considered: changes in the duration of state UC unemployment benefits and (changes in the UC weekly benefit amount. Overall, the two types of changes to state UC laws and programs have consequences for the duration and amount of unemployment benefits. This report describes these changes and analyzes their consequences for UC, EUC08 (when it was authorized), and EB benefits. It will be updated, as needed, to reflect additional state UC changes.

The similarity law for nonsteady hypersonic flows and requirements for the dynamical similarity of related bodies in free flight

Description: Report presenting the use of the similarity law for steady hypersonic flow about slender shapes as extended to nonsteady flows. The aerodynamic forces and moments are correlated for related shapes by means of this law. The motions of related bodies in free flight could be correlated using the hypersonic similarity parameters and additional parameters relating the inertial properties of the bodies and air densities.

Permeability Upscaling Measured on a Block of Berea Sandstone: Results and Interpretation

Description: To physically investigate permeability upscaling over 13,000 permeability values were measured with four different sample supports (i.e., sample volumes) on a block of Berea Sandstone. At each sample support spatially-exhaustive permeability data sets were measured, subject to consistent flow geometry and boundary conditions, with a specially adapted minipermeameter test system. Here, we present and analyze a subset of the data consisting of 2304 permeability values collected from a single block face oriented normal to stratification. Results reveal a number of distinct and consistent trends (i.e., upscaling) relating changes in key summary statistics to an increasing sample support. Examples include the sample mean and semivariogram range that increase with increasing sample support and the sample variance that decreases. To help interpret the measured mean upscaling we compared it to theoretical models that are only available for somewhat different flow geometries. The comparison suggests that the non-uniform flow imposed by the rninipermeameter coupled with permeability anisotropy at the scale of the local support (i.e., smallest sample support for which data is available) are the primary controls on the measured upscaling. This work demonstrates, experimentally, that it is not always appropriate to treat the local-support permeability as an intrinsic feature of the porous medium; that is, independent of its conditions of measurement.
