Control of summer river temperature is needed for maintaining water temperature standards to protect aquatic biota and wildlife habitats. Given the fact that instream discharge, among meteorological and hydrologicaï factors, may be the only one that can be practically managed, is it feasible to moderate summer river temperature through reservoir and(More)
In order to provide some detailed information on the feeding behavior of freely-feeding dogs, four adult beagles were maintained in an isolated outdoor environment where food and water were freely available. Observations across an 8-month period indicated that the dogs are episodically (in "meals") and that the total daily intake of food and water changed(More)
SciDAC1, with its support for the " Advanced Computing for 21 st Century Accelerator Science and Technology " (AST) project, witnessed dramatic advances in electromagnetic (EM) simulations for the design and optimization of important accelerators across the Office of Science. In SciDAC2, EM simulations continue to play an important role in the " Community(More)
The traditional two-pan choice test and an operant lever-press choice test were used to assess dogs' preferences between various foods. In the first two experiments the foods differed in flavor as manipulated by the amount of fat-coating added to a dry-food base. In the third experiment, the foods were commercially-available dry and semi-moist dog foods.(More)
The feeding behavior of dogs in one-pan and two-pan tests was measured in the usual way (total food intake in the test) and at a fine-grained level (cumulative amount eaten on a moment-by-moment basis during the test). The four experiments reported studied dogs' reactions to different dry foods, and to semi-moist and canned foods. The fine-grained measures(More)
This article presents corrosion data and microstructural analysis data of austenitic stainless steels AISI 316L and AISI 347H exposed to supercritical water (25 MPa, 550 °C) with 2000 ppb of dissolved oxygen. The corrosion tests lasted a total of 1200 h but were interrupted at 600 h to allow measurements to be made. The microstructural data have been(More)

By the time you read this newsletter, ICA staff will be on the move from Austin, TX, where we've been headquartered since 1974, to Washington, DC, with a target date for being fully " up and running " at our new location by September 12. The new headquarters address is 1730 Rhode Island Ave., NW, Suite 300, Washington, DC 20036-3101—just south of Dupont(More)
An apparatus for making fine-grained measurements of eating and drinking in dogs is described. Examples of how this computer controlled measurement system can be used to illustrate eating behavior in one- and two-pan tests are given. Also, very fine-grained measurements are illustrated in illustrating a single meal segment and a single water drinking bout.
