The formation of a financial base for a total energy policy whose scope includes both measures for reducing present energy consumption habits, and research support for the development of new sources of energy in order to relieve the U. S. of its almost complete dependence on fossil fuel. was the subject of a series of hearings before Congress. Both public and private sector measures are discussed, including the establishment of a national energy trust fund supported by a tax on energy consumption, the creation of incentives for the production of energy by private industry, and a variable import levy on foreign energy to protect and encourage domestic investment in energy technology.

The TASSIM model integrates an urban transportation planning model, vehicle emission factors and simple air diffusion models in a simulation framework that can be used to analyze the air quality effects of transportation policies. The model is spatially disaggregated, and it is compatible with data sources available in many metropolitan areas. This volume briefly describes the structure of the model and then analyzes several model applications that simulate for Boston the air quality effects of transportation control land use, and stationary source policies. The transportation control policies are evaluated in a cost effectiveness framework. The final sections consider possible extensions of the model and outline the model's computational aspects.

The report is designed to illustrate cost savings which would result from specific efforts in the areas of product improvement in quality and design. For the purpose of this study the cost savings produced in the area of product improvement are based on total elimination of a certain failure mode or modes. Appropriate modes are chosen because of their proportion of the total removals or their proportion in combination with other similar modes. These eliminated removals are then assumed to follow the distribution of the remaining removal modes. The actual cost savings are determined from the increase in the mean time to removal based on the new removal distributions. The data used and methods involved are described.

Current economic analyses indicate that the processing of oil shale is within or near the range of economic feasibility. Environmental acceptability remains to be tested on a large-scale basis Advances in environmental control technologies, for example, revegetation and chemical processing of effluents, are said to reduce some of the harmful environmental impacts resulting from development of this resource. This paper discusses proposed legislation concerned with the development of oil shale which would establish a cooperative Government industry corporation to construct models of an oil shale processing plant to demonstrate the economic feasibility and environmental acceptability of different technological methods, and, if deemed feasible, construct a commercial sized plant.

The Second Report of the Large Windtunnels Working Group of the AGARD Fluid Dynamics Panel is presented. The group confined its further considerations to the need for and definitions of a large transonic windtunnel in Europe. The engineering studies on the proposed four options for the tunnel drive system are reviewed: engineering of all four appears to be feasible but at higher cost than anticipated. The Group still cannot recommend a preferred option technical grounds, but recommends that following further work a selection should be made before the end of 1975 The program of further work necessary to provide the information needed for selection of a preferred option is defined, together with recommendations on how it should be shared between National Programs and on indepedent Technical Project Group. with coordination as required by the MiniLaWs Group of the Fluid Dynamics Panel. It is concluded that the reasons given on the need for a large European transonic windtunnel still apply, and no change is required in the standard specification of the windtunnel.

Transportation requirements are considered during the engine design layout reviews and maintenance engineering analyses. Where designs cannot be influenced to avoid transportation problems, the transportation representative is advised of the problems permitting remedies early in the program. The transportation representative will monitor and be involved in the shipment of development engine and GSE hardware between FRDC and vehicle manufacturing plant and thereby will be provided an early evaluation of the transportation plans, methods and procedures to be used in the space tug support program. Unanticipated problems discovered in the shipment of development hardware will be known early enough to permit changes in packaging designs and transportation plans before the start of production hardware and engine shipments. All conventional transport media can be used for the movement of space tug engines.

A systematic approach for applying methods for fracture control in the structural components of space vehicles consists of four major steps. The first step is to define the primary load-carrying structural elements and the type of load, environment, and design stress levels acting upon them. The second step is to identify the potential fracture-critical parts by means of a selection logic flow diagram. The third step is to evaluate the safe-life and fail-safe capabilities of the specified part. The last step in the sequence is to apply the control procedures that will prevent damage to the fracture-critical parts. The fracture control methods discussed include fatigue design and analysis methods, methods for preventing crack-like defects, fracture mechanics analysis methods, and nondestructive evaluation methods. An example problem is presented for evaluation of the sale-crack growth capability of the space shuttle crew compartment skin structure,
