A series of essays on the changes in command & control (C&C) & the reorganization of a reduced NATO force structure at the end of the Cold War. Topics addressed include: reorganizing NATO C&C structures; the NATO CJTF C&C concept; command authorities & multinationality in NATO; Canadian forces in Europe; France's military command structures in the 1990s; centralizing German operational C&C structures; Italy's command structure; Portugal's defense structures & NATO; present & future command structure: a Danish view; & NATO restructuring & enlargement. Charts & maps.

Hierarchical structures are assemblages of molecular units or their aggregates that are embedded or intertwined with other phases, which in turn are similarly organized at increasing size levels. The multilevel architectures are capable of conferring unique properties to the structure. Hierarchical structures are found in practically all complex systems, particularly naturally occurring ones. Synthetic hierarchical structures can be prepared from metals, ceramics, or polymers, or from hybrids of various classes of these materials. The Committee on Synthetic Hierarchical Structures made an asse

Chap. 1 sets forth the general require. for applying the analysis & design provisions contained in Chap. 2 through 12 of the Nat. Earthquake Hazards Reduction Prog. Recommended Provisions for Seismic Reg's. for New Bldgs. & Other Structures. It is similar to what might be incorporated in a code as administrative regulations. Also includes info. on: quality assurance; ground motion; structural design criteria; architectural, mechanical, & electrical components; seismically isolated structures; & design require. for foundation, steel structure, concrete structure, composite steel & concrete stru

Improving the structural integrity together with the performance (weight, time to failure,...) of structures requires a persisting effort in the field of mechanics of materials and structures. This can be achieved by a better understanding of the relationships between microscopic mechanisms and the macroscopic material behavior and structural response with respect to damage and fracture. This improvement strategy of materials, structures and assement methods can be described as local approach to fracture. The local approach to fracture is an active research field. Initially developped in the c

Inventory and monitoring of coastal aquaculture and fisheries structures provide important baseline data for decision-making in planning and development, including regulatory laws, environmental protection and revenue collection. Mapping these structures can be performed with good accuracy and at regular intervals by satellite remote sensing, which allows observation of vast areas, often of difficult accessibility, at a fraction of cost of traditional surveys. This study is based on interpretation of satellite imaging radar data and a detailed image analysis procedure is described. The report

Nearly 400 accelerograph records were recovered from the National Cooperative Strong-Motion Network (NCSMN) during 1989. There are more than 1,000 NCSMN stations in 40 states & Puerto Rico. Primary objectives are to record strong ground motions & the response of representative engineered structures during moderate to large earthquakes, & to disseminate the resultant data & information about the records, sites, & structures to the earthquake engineering research & design community.
