Allen DJ, Harvey B, Brett SJ, 2005, "FOURCRACK" - An investigation of the creep performance of advanced high alloy steel welds, Pages: 772-782
Creep failure by "Type IV" cracking in the weld heat-affected zone (HAZ) is likely to be the life-limiting failure mechanism in high alloy steel components for advanced power plant. A UK collaborative project, "FOURCRACK", has therefore been carried out to investigate and compare the cross-weld creep rupture performance of several casts of the advanced steels E911, P92, and P122, and the established steel P91. The experimental matrix included both stress and temperature variations while minimising the testing required to characterise the comparative performance of different welded materials. The results clarify the interplay between weld metal and HAZ failure mechanisms, the relationships between parent material and cross-weld creep strength, and the relative merits of the alternative steels. Finally, problems which arise in the assessment of cross-weld creep test data are discussed, and recommendations put forward to address the risks of biased assessment when failure can take place in different locations within the weldment.

The Adult Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a life threatening condition with a high mortality. Computer tomography (CT) has helped us to develop an understanding of the morphological and pathophysiological changes that occur during the course of the disease. This has allowed us to adopt more appropriate ventilation strategies with the aim of not only improving survival but also reducing ventilator associated lung damage for survivors. CT scanning may also be of use in the acute clinical setting in the diagnosis and management of complications, in assessing the progress of the disease and the use of other medical therapies.

Horrocks C, Brett S, 2000, Blast injury, Current Anaesthesia and Critical Care, Vol: 11, Pages: 113-119, ISSN: 0953-7112
Explosions are physical, chemical or nuclear processes that involve the rapid release of considerable amounts of energy. Their deleterious effects on living organisms are embodied by the term 'blast injury' Injuries caused by explosions have increased in frequency throughout this century. This has been caused in part by industrial expansion. More significant has been the proliferation of explosive weapons and their increased use worldwide. The International Committee of the Red Cross has estimated that throughout 70 countries, at least 2000 people are killed or injured every month by anti-personnel mines. The use of explosive devices by terrorist organizations has increased relentlessly, and from time to time civilian doctors are faced with the aftermath of such episodes. Furthermore, many doctors now seek experience of medicine in developing countries and an understanding of blast injury is useful. Explosions and the injuries caused by them are the subject of this review. (C) 2000 Harcourt Publishers Ltd.
