Addresses containment design practices and compares the 2 different material types (steel and concrete). Various failure modes are evaluated and computed in previous containment designs. Margin in steel and concrete containment was compared by designing and analyzing a set of surrogate containment. The containment chosen encompass the primary types of containment shapes and construction materials. For compatibility, each containment has an identical internal volume and design pressure and temperature. These containments are designed according to all applicable code requirements for nuclear reactor containment structures.
A Critical Appraisal of American National Security Policy during the Cold War
Author: John Lewis Gaddis
Publisher: Oxford University Press
When Strategies of Containment was first published, the Soviet Union was still a superpower, Ronald Reagan was president of the United States, and the Berlin Wall was still standing. This updated edition of Gaddis' classic carries the history of containment through the end of the Cold War. Beginning with Franklin D. Roosevelt's postwar plans, Gaddis provides a thorough critical analysis of George F. Kennan's original strategy of containment, NSC-68, The Eisenhower-Dulles "New Look," the Kennedy-Johnson "flexible response" strategy, the Nixon-Kissinger strategy of detente, and now a comprehensive assessment of how Reagan - and Gorbechev - completed the process of containment, thereby bringing the Cold War to an end. He concludes, provocatively, that Reagan more effectively than any other Cold War president drew upon the strengths of both approaches while avoiding their weaknesses. A must-read for anyone interested in Cold War history, grand strategy, and the origins of the post-Cold War world.
One of the policies that has been most widely used to try to limit urban sprawl has been that of urban containment. These policies are planning controls limiting the growth of cities in an attempt to preserve open rural uses, such as habitat, agriculture and forestry, in urban regions. While there has been a substantial amount of research into these urban containment policies, most have focused on issues of land use, consumption, transportation impacts or economic development issues. This book examines the effects of urban containment policies on key social issues, such as housing, wealth building and creation, racial segregation and gentrification. It argues that, while the policies make important contributions to environmental sustainability, they also affect affordability for all the economic groups of citizens aside from the most wealthy. However, it also puts forward suggestions for revising such policies to counter these possible negative social impacts. As such, it will be valuable reading for scholars of environmental planning, social policy and regional development, as well as for policy makers.

"Since the enactment of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) in 1969, there has been increased reliance on confined or on-land facilities for disposal of dredged material. Acquisition, however, is increasingly difficult because of high real estate values, the long-term nature of the easements, and the perception by landowners that dredged material is not aesthetic. The U.S. Corps of Engineers has worked to identify ways in which the landowner can use the acreage for activities that are financially attractive but do not interfere with periodic disposal of dredged material. One of these activities is aquaculture. This report summarizes information on legal and institutional constraints on aquaculture in DMCA. Laws, regulations, and permit requirements that may apply to DMCA aquaculture are outlined; potential legal difficulties are identified and methods of avoiding them are suggested"--National Sea Grant Library publication website.
"This publication is one in a series of reviews of the use of the dredged material containment areas for aquaculture. This handbook is a useful overview of a demonstration project's results; site selection, design and construction; project planning and design; economics and business planning; and legal considerations. It will be of interest to aquaculturists, landowners, coastal zone planners, and other potential users of the containment area aquaculture concept"--National Sea Grant Library publication website.

How To Survive and Thrive in an Age of Managed Care
Author: Bernard D. Beitman
Publisher: SAGE Publications, Incorporated
In an age when psychotherapists are subjected to cost-saving measures which run counter to their wish to optimize care for their clients, this book is particularly timely. After chapters on the mechanics of cost containment and the clash between cost containment and client care, the author shows practitioners how to live with the enemy and to provide psychotherapeutic care in these adverse circumstances.
The Ideology and Deception That Plunged America into the Vietnam War
Author: Pat Proctor
Is it possible that a president and his administration would purposefully mislead the American public so that they could commit the United States to a war that is not theirs to fight? Anyone with even a remote memory of the phrase “weapons of mass destruction” probably finds such a question naive. On the eve of the fiftieth anniversary of the Vietnam War, those with longer memories would consider the unquestioning acceptance of Saddam Hussein’s “gathering threat” even more naive. Providing historical context that highlights how the decision to use force is made, as well as how it is “sold,” Containment and Credibility explores how the half-truths and outright lies of both the Johnson and Nixon administrations brought us into a conflict that cost more than fifty thousand American lives over eight years. As we consider how best to confront the growing threat of ISIS, it is increasingly important for the public to understand how we were convinced to go to war in the past. In the 1960s, the domino theory warning of the spread of communism provided the rationale for war, followed by the deception of the Gulf of Tonkin Incident and the resulting resolution that essentially gave LBJ a blank check. This book will show how this deception ultimately led to the unraveling of the Johnson presidency and will explore the credibility gap that led to the public political debate of that time. Containment and Credibility applies the lessons of the sixties to today’s similar debates regarding military involvement.
