    Discovering Jewish Studies Collections in Academic Libraries: A Practical Guide

    Full text link
    The U.S. colleges and universities offering non-sectarian educational programs in Jewish Studies rely on the support of their academic libraries for research materials and library services. For college libraries which use Library of Congress Classification scheme, it is a common practice to integrate studies resources into their general library collections. Since Jewish Studies sources span a vast number of subjects within all major disciplines, shelving integration leads to the dispersion of all relevant sources and such dispersion in turn leads to a variety of problems for library professionals and library users. For collection development librarians the problems range from lack of information about collection\u27s size, strengths or weaknesses, and for library users interested in browsing the collection, dispersion of subjects creates a major roadblock. This practical guide aims at providing a solution to such problems. By identifying all relevant Library of Congress call numbers and the corresponding Library of Congress subject headings, the guide offers a simplified access to Jewish Studies sources in general library collections. It is arranged by four major discipline: Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Sciences, and General Works & Bibliographies. Within each discipline, specific LC call number ranges and corresponding subjects are listed. The subjects are further subdivided and precisely identified. The guide will assist collection development librarians, library liaisons, grants and fundraising professionals and especially the Jewish Studies faculty and students, in identifying and locating relevant sources

    An improved panel method for the solution of three-dimensional leading edge vortex flows Volume 2: User's guide and programmer's document

    Get PDF
    A computer program developed for solving the subsonic, three dimensional flow over wing-body configurations with leading edge vortex separation is presented. Instructions are given for the proper set up and input of a problem into the computer code. Program input formats and output are described, as well as the overlay structure of the program. The program is written in FORTRAN

    Feasibility study for a numerical aerodynamic simulation facility. Volume 1

    Get PDF
    A Numerical Aerodynamic Simulation Facility (NASF) was designed for the simulation of fluid flow around three-dimensional bodies, both in wind tunnel environments and in free space. The application of numerical simulation to this field of endeavor promised to yield economies in aerodynamic and aircraft body designs. A model for a NASF/FMP (Flow Model Processor) ensemble using a possible approach to meeting NASF goals is presented. The computer hardware and software are presented, along with the entire design and performance analysis and evaluation

    Computer programs for calculating two-dimensional potential flow in and about propulsion system inlets

    Get PDF
    Incompressible potential flow calculations are presented that were corrected for compressibility in two-dimensional inlets at arbitrary operating conditions. Included are a statement of the problem to be solved, a description of each of the computer programs, and sufficient documentation, including a test case, to enable a user to run the program

    Application of a Computer Model for Simulating Build-up of Ash in the Powdered Activated Carbon Treatment (PACT)/Wet Air Regeneration (WAR) Process at Burlington, NC

    Ash generation is the byproduct of the regeneration of spent PAC in the WAR unit of a PACT/WAR system. Successive regenerations of PAC have resulted in ash accumulation in the system. Operational and design data from the East Burlington Wastewater Treatment Plant, NC were used to verify and test the effectiveness of a constant input, steady state model for simulating this phenomenon. The model performs mass balances for four different solids (Biomass, PAC, Light ash, and Heavy ash) around each essential unit of the system. A sensitivity analysis identified WAR unit efficiency, fraction of biomass converted to Light ash at the WAR unit, fraction of Heavy ash lost to the WAR unit, and secondary clarifier efficiencies to remove Light and Heavy ash to be important process parameters. Results of a 12-month and a 2-month simulation runs indicate that the model is capable of predicting percent increase in average mixed liquor ash concentrations and has potential as a tool for design and decision making. It is unable, however, to follow the variation present in reported data of a system that exhibits periods of unsteady state conditions, as in the case of Burlington.Master of Science in Environmental Engineerin
