explosives testing Books

  • Industrial Dust Explosions

    Papers provide new data from laboratory and large-scale dust explosibility testing, data from recent accident investigations in industry, and information on the practical design of preventive and protective measures for industrial equipment. This is a comprehensive reference for such industries as coal mining, electric power generation, grain ...

  • Nuclear Test Ban

    The book gives a broad presentation in laymen's language of the creation and the implementation of the treaty prohibiting nuclear test explosions (Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: CTBT), one of the key guarantors of nuclear non-proliferation. The writers, who personally guided this work for more than 25 years, give a unique insight into the ...

  • Nuclear Tests

    The first Soviet atomic bomb test, which took place at Semipalatinsk in Kazakhstan on 29 August 1949, was the most egregious test by far in terms of collective exposures to local fallout. This volume is devoted to this first, and to further nuclear weapon test explosions in the Semipalatinsk/Altai region. It analyses the environmental and human ...

  • Atmospheric Nuclear Tests

    Radionuclides produced by past nuclear weapon test explosions comprise the largest source of anthropogenic radioactivity released into the earth's atmosphere to date. This volume presents data and models about the fate of the released radionuclides and their possible effects on human health. It is divided into the following three parts: - Source ...

  • Landslides from Massive Rock Slope Failure

    This unique volume contains papers based on presentations and discussions at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Massive Rock Slope Failure; New Models for Hazard Assessment held in Celano, Italy in June 2002. 32 papers by 64 engineers, geologists, and geomorphologists from 16 countries address the issue of landslides from massive rock slope ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Bant Treaty: Data Processing and Infrasound

    On September 10, 1996, The United Nations General Assembly adopted the Copmprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), prohibiting nuclear explosions worldwide, in all environments. The treaty calls for a global verification system, including a network of 321 monitoring stations distributed around the globe, a data communications network, an ...

  • Monitoring the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty: Source Processes and Explosion Yield Estimation

    This volume presents summaries of recent research results on the related subjects of source processes and explosion yield estimation, which are important elements of any treaty verification system. The term Source Processes, in the context of nuclear test monitoring, refers to a wide range of research topics. In a narrow definition, it describes ...

  • Vapour and Trace Detection of Explosives for Anti-Terrorism Purposes

    Up to now so called ‘sniffer’ dogs are the most successful and widespread systems for the explosives detection at airports and in public areas. Dogs are able to detect explosives under various conditions. On the other hand dogs are living beings and their behavior and skills are influenced by numerous parameters (e.g. age, sex, trainer, daily ...
