The first main issue in strength costs was once certainly a robust stimulus for the involvement of the fee of the eu groups in learn and improvement on replacement power resources. certainly, the necessity to triumph over problems confronted by means of the neighborhood as a complete, rather these caused by its critically unbalanced strength offer, made a standard group method look specially apt. This reasoning additionally applies to power R&D, making an allowance for that responses to the concern might be not just political or fiscal, but additionally medical. 4 years have handed because the selection of the Council of Ministers to release the 1st neighborhood power study and improvement Programme, facing geothermal strength, solar power, hydrogen construction and utili­ sation, strength conservation and effort platforms research. A seminar on geo­ thermal strength was once held years in the past to file on paintings in development on the half-way degree of the four-year programme. the second one foreign seminar, suggested during this quantity, was once arrang­ ed that allows you to provide a chance to envision the ultimate end result of this group funding in learn in geothermal power. This complaints quantity for that reason has major goals: - to provide an overview of the result of the group geothermal programme, via eighty three formal studies describing the person examine programmes; - to teach how the group study programme suits into the general context of nationwide and overseas learn on geothermal strength, through together with the shows of six visitor audio system who brought the periods and gave keynote addresses.

Grand Designs and Visions of Unity: The Atlantic Powers and the Reorganization of Western Europe, 1955-1963

Within the overdue Nineteen Fifties, opposed to the unfolding backdrop of the chilly conflict, American and eu leaders all started operating to reshape Western Europe. They sought to conform the area to a altering international during which ecu empires have been swiftly disintegrating, Soviet effect used to be spreading, and the U.S. may perhaps not shoulder the total political and monetary burden of the West but hesitated to percentage it with Europe.

Computation and Comparison of Efficient Turbulence Models for Aeronautics — European Research Project ETMA

The computation of advanced turbulent flows through statistical modelling has already an extended background. the preferred two-equation versions this day have been brought within the early sev­ enties. even though those types were regularly demonstrated in quite educational instances. The develope­ ment of pcs has resulted in a growing number of acurate numerical equipment.

There is aLso the geological context of the system which can be sub-divided into two classes: sedimentary and volcanic (with some overlapping areas of course), these affect the prospecting objective which will take account of structural and geometric factors in the first case, and anomalies in the second. They also affect the choice of method which may be complicated by logistic considerations and by the penetration of the signal in the overlying formation. As to interpretation models, it is thought that, knowing geothermal landscapes, as we do, they should rarely be tabular with infinite extent of layers.

The pLanned experiment at TravaLe couLd throw some Light on this interesting matter. DipoLar eLectricaL methods (dipoLe-dipoLe and bipoLe-dipoLe) present no particuLar advantages over the SchLumberger quadripoLe, as their Logistic fLexibiLity is offset by the buiLt-in sensitivity of the equipment to LateraL effects. The Latter bias interpretation by introducing more noise, compared with the SchLumberger, as has been shown by the investigations at TravaLe. The use of two-and-three-dimensionaL resistivity modeLs which correspond more fuLLy to the actuaL topography of the deposits shouLd however improve the reLiabiLity of the dipoLe and soundings and profiLings.

Seismic interpretation wiLL pLay an essentiaL roLe, just as it did recentLy in the expLoratory driLling for oiL at Binnenweg, south of Strasbourg. It is likeLy that reservoir appraisals wiLL also be carried out in the near future in the United Kingdom, Northern Italy, the Netherlands, North Germany and the MoLasse Basin, and in Ireland as weLL. These reports which require that the vaLuabLe cooperation hitherto enjoyed with the oil companies (depositaries of so much of the information about reservoirs) wiLL continue, wiLL receive support from the Commission.
