On April 19, 2009, we began a one week assessment of the electrical safety of DoD facilities occupied or constructed by U.S. personnel and contractors in Afghanistan. The assessment team performed work at Bagram Airfield (BAF), Forward Operating Base (FOB) Altimur, FOB Sharana, Kandahar Airfield (KAF), Camp Brown, FOB Tarin Kowt, FOB Spin Boldak, Camp Phoenix, and Camp Eggers. We used a subject matter expert (senior electrician from A Co., 249th Engineer Battalion (Prime Power))to assess the electrical safety and code compliance of facilities visited at various locations. The team's subject matter expert performed limited assessments of electrical components at select facilities in Afghanistan. The subject matter expert did not conduct full electrical inspections of each facility due to time constraints in country. Subsequent to departing Afghanistan, the team provided U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) briefing charts with the team's preliminary observations and recommendations. We requested CENTCOM provide comments regarding our observations and recommendations. The Command provided preliminary comments on May 11, 2009. Those comments were incorporated into the draft and final reports. See Appendix D for comments provided by CENTCOM to the preliminary observations and recommendations. CENTCOM and the Defense Contract management Agency (DCMA) provided comments to the draft report on June 29, 2009, and July 9, 2009, respectively. See Appendix E for comments to the draft report provided by CENTCOM and DCMA.

Unique in its focus, this book provides an evidence-based framework for assessing work-related neurological and psychological injuries. Meeting a key need, chapters address a range of problems encountered in the workplace: traumatic brain injury, sports concussion, electrical injury, exposure to neurotoxic substances, posttraumatic stress, depression, and brain and psychological injuries experienced in combat. Professionals will find the best available tools and strategies for conducting effective, ethical evaluations of injured workers, making diagnostic determinations, considering causality, determining disability status, and offering treatment recommendations. The complexities of consulting to attorneys, government agencies, and insurance companies are also discussed.

Rock dynamics has become one of the most important topics in the field of rock mechanics and rock engineering, and involves a wide variety of topics, from earthquake engineering, blasting, impacts, failure of rock engineering structures as well as the occurrence and prediction of earthquakes, induced seismicity, rock bursts to non-destructive testing and explorations. Rock dynamics has wide applications in civil and infrastructural, resources and energy, geological and environmental engineering, geothermal energy, and earthquake hazard management, and has become one of the most topical areas. 2019 Rock Dynamics Summit contains 8 keynote addresses and 128 regular full papers that were presented at the 2019 Rock Dynamics Summit (2019 RDS, Okinawa, Japan, 7-11 May 2019), a specialized conference jointly organized by the Rock Dynamics Committee of the Japanese Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE-RDC), the Japanese Society for Rock Mechanics (JSRM), and which was supported by the International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM) and the Turkish National Society for Rock Mechanics (TNSRM). The contributions cover a wide range of topics on the dynamic behavior of rock and rock masses and scientific and engineering applications, and include: - Laboratory tests on Dynamic Responses of Rocks and Rock Masses / Fracturing of Rocks and Associated Strong Motions - Estimation Procedures and Numerical Techniques of Strong Motions Associated with the Rupture of Earth’s Crust and Some Strong Motion - Dynamic Response and Stability of Rock Foundations, Underground Excavations in Rock, Rock Slopes Dynamic Responses and Stability of Stone Masonry Historical Structures and Monuments - Induced Seismicity - Dynamic Simulation of Loading and Excavation - Blasting and machinery induced vibrations - Rockburst, Outburst, Impacts - Nondestructive Testing Using Shock Waves - Case Histories of Failure Phenomenon in Rock Engineering 2019 Rock Dynamics Summit contains the state-of-the-art in rock dynamics, and will be invaluable to professionals and academics interested in the latest advances in new techniques for experiments, analytical and numerical modelling as well as monitoring in dynamics of rocks and rock engineering structures.
