Flood Studies Report
The Flood Studies Report, published in 1975, is used in relation to rainfall events in the United Kingdom. It has since been replaced by the Flood Estimation Handbook, it is possible to use the FSR to predict the depth of rainfall from a storm of a given duration and return period. The FSR includes values for two key variables mapped across the UK: the M5-60 minutes rainfall, the ratio "r". M5-60 minutes rainfall is the expected depth of rainfall in millimetres from a storm lasting 60 minutes with a return period of 5 years. M5-2 days rainfall is the expected depth of rainfall from a storm lasting 2 days with a return period of 5 years; the dimensionless ratio "r" is the M5-60 minutes value divided by the M5-2 days value. Factor Z1 is interpolated from figures based on the values of M5-2 days and "r". Factor Z2 is found from the M5 rainfall depth, depends on the return period; the Areal Reduction Factor takes the catchment area into account. For small catchments the ARF is not required. To find the depth of a rainfall of duration D and return period T at a given location in the UK, the following should be carried out: Find M5-60 minutes rainfall depth and "r" for the location using FSR maps.
Divide this rainfall depth by "r" to get the M5-2 days depth. Multiply the M5-2 days depth by factor Z1 to find the M5-D depth. Multiply the M5-D depth by factor Z2 to find the MT-D depth. Multiply the MT-D depth by the Areal Reduction Factor. Find the depth of rainfall from a storm of duration 6 hours and return period 10 years on a catchment of 5 km2 in Sheffield. From the FSR maps, the M5-60 minutes rainfall is 20.5mm, "r" = 0.4. Divide 20.5mm by 0.4 to get 51.3mm, the M5-2 days rainfall depth. Factor Z1 = 0.64, so multiply 51.3mm by 0.64 to get 32.8mm. Factor Z2 = 1.16, so multiply 32.8mm by 1.16 to get 38.1mm. The ARF is 0.96, so multiply 38.1mm by 0.96 to get 36.6mm. Therefore the expected depth of rainfall from the storm is 36.6mm. The mean intensity of rainfall is given by 36.6mm divided by 6 hours, 6.1mm/hour. The above method is sufficient for finding the overall depth of rainfall during a storm. However, it is useful from an engineering perspective to predict the intensity of rainfall during the storm, to allow structures such as drains and sewers to be designed with sufficient capacity for stormwater.
In general, the intensity of a storm is highest at the mid-duration point, lowest at the start and end of the storm. Therefore, peaked profiles are applied to the storm data to provide a more realistic description of the rainfall intensity during the storm; the Flood Estimation Handbook was published in 1999 and replaces the FSR. It is based on the percentage runoff equation: P R = 0.829 P I M P + 25 S O I L + 0.078 U C W I − 20.7 where PR is percentage runoff, PIMP is percentage imperviousness of the catchment, SOIL is the soil index and UCWI is urban catchment wetness index
First Strike Ration
The First Strike Ration is a compact, eat-on-the move ration concept from the United States Army, designed to be consumed during the first 72 hours of conflict, created by the United States Army Soldier Systems Center in Natick, Massachusetts. The Army said the FSR reduces weight and load and is intended to enhance a consumer's physical performance, mental acuity, mobility; the FSR is a new assault ration developed to provide mobile soldiers with a variety of foods that are lightweight, calorically dense and which are more "easy to consume" than intermediate moisture foods. Enhanced mobility – components are described as "familiar, performance-enhancing, eat-out-of-hand" foods that require little or no preparation by the soldier; the beverages are consumed right out of the pouch. No water is needed for food preparation, only for the beverage mix; the food takes the form of pocket sandwiches to be eaten by hand. Lightweight – when compared to three Meals, Ready-to-Eat, the FSR reduces the weight and volume of one day’s subsistence by 50%.
Characteristics – has a minimum two year shelf life at 80 °F and provides an average of 2,900 calories per day. The FSR has nine meals per shipping container consisting of three each of three different menus. HOOAH! Bar First Strike Rations Menu First Strike Ration information at MREInfo.com
Fort Smith Railroad
The Fort Smith Railroad is a Class III short-line railroad headquartered in Fort Smith, Arkansas. FSR operates an 18 miles line in Arkansas from Fort Smith to Fort Chaffee. FSR traffic consists of grain, food products, paper products and finished steel, peanuts, military equipment, charcoal; the FSR operates with three ex-Santa Fe Railroad EMD GP20 locomotives. The original line, consisting of 47 miles to Paris, was built in the 1890s by a Union Pacific predecessor, was leased to FSR in 1991; the portion between Fort Chaffee and Paris was abandoned in 1995. FSR is a subsidiary of Pioneer Railcorp. Link to Union Pacific Website with FSR Details
Free spectral range
Free spectral range is the spacing in optical frequency or wavelength between two successive reflected or transmitted optical intensity maxima or minima of an interferometer or diffractive optical element. The FSR is not always represented by Δ ν or Δ λ, but instead is sometimes represented by just the letters FSR; the reason is that these different terms refer to the bandwidth or linewidth of an emitted source respectively. The free spectral range of a cavity in general is given by | Δ λ FSR | = 2 π L | − 1 | or, equivalently, | Δ ν FSR | = 2 π L | − 1 | These expressions can be derived from the resonance condition Δ β L = 2 π by expanding Δ β in Taylor series. Here, β = k 0 n = 2 π λ n is the wavevector of the light inside the cavity, k 0 and λ are the wavevector and wavelength in vacuum, n is the refractive index of the cavity and L is the length of the cavity. Given that | | = 2 π λ 2 = 2 π λ 2 n g, the FSR is given by Δ λ FSR = λ 2 n g L, being n g is the group index of the media within the cavity.
Or, equivalently, Δ ν FSR = c n g L. If the dispersion of the material is negligible, i.e. ∂ n ∂ λ ≈ 0 the two expressions above reduce to Δ λ FSR ≈ λ 2 n L, Δ ν FSR ≈ c n L. A simple intuitive interpretation of the FSR is that it is the inverse of the roundtrip time T R: T R = n g L c = 1 Δ ν FSR. In wavelength, the FSR is given by Δ λ FSR = λ 2 n g L, where λ is the vacuum wavelength of light. For a linear cavity, such as the Fabry-Pérot discussed below, L = 2 l, where L is the distance travelled by light in one roundtrip around the closed cavity, l is the length of the cavity; the free spectral range of a diffraction grating is the largest wavelength range for a given order that does not overlap the same range in an adj
A finite-state machine or finite-state automaton, finite automaton, or a state machine, is a mathematical model of computation. It is an abstract machine that can be in one of a finite number of states at any given time; the FSM can change from one state to another in response to some external inputs. An FSM is defined by a list of its states, its initial state, the conditions for each transition. Finite state machines are of two types – deterministic finite state machines and non-deterministic finite state machines. A deterministic finite-state machine can be constructed equivalent to any non-deterministic one; the behavior of state machines can be observed in many devices in modern society that perform a predetermined sequence of actions depending on a sequence of events with which they are presented. Simple examples are vending machines, which dispense products when the proper combination of coins is deposited, whose sequence of stops is determined by the floors requested by riders, traffic lights, which change sequence when cars are waiting, combination locks, which require the input of combination numbers in the proper order.
The finite state machine has less computational power than some other models of computation such as the Turing machine. The computational power distinction means there are computational tasks that a Turing machine can do but a FSM cannot; this is because a FSM's memory is limited by the number of states it has. FSMs are studied in the more general field of automata theory. An example of a simple mechanism that can be modeled by a state machine is a turnstile. A turnstile, used to control access to subways and amusement park rides, is a gate with three rotating arms at waist height, one across the entryway; the arms are locked, blocking the entry, preventing patrons from passing through. Depositing a coin or token in a slot on the turnstile unlocks the arms, allowing a single customer to push through. After the customer passes through, the arms are locked again. Considered as a state machine, the turnstile has two possible states: Unlocked. There are two possible inputs that affect its state: pushing the arm.
In the locked state, pushing on the arm has no effect. Putting a coin in – that is, giving the machine a coin input – shifts the state from Locked to Unlocked. In the unlocked state, putting additional coins in has no effect. However, a customer pushing through the arms, giving a push input, shifts the state back to Locked; the turnstile state machine can be represented by a state transition table, showing for each possible state, the transitions between them and the outputs resulting from each input: The turnstile state machine can be represented by a directed graph called a state diagram. Each state is represented by a node. Edges show the transitions from one state to another; each arrow is labeled with the input. An input that doesn't cause a change of state is represented by a circular arrow returning to the original state; the arrow into the Locked node from the black dot indicates. A state is a description of the status of a system, waiting to execute a transition. A transition is a set of actions to be executed when a condition is fulfilled or when an event is received.
For example, when using an audio system to listen to the radio, receiving a "next" stimulus results in moving to the next station. When the system is in the "CD" state, the "next" stimulus results in moving to the next track. Identical stimuli trigger different actions depending on the current state. In some finite-state machine representations, it is possible to associate actions with a state: an entry action: performed when entering the state, an exit action: performed when exiting the state. Several state transition table types are used; the most common representation is shown below: the combination of current state and input shows the next state. The complete action's information is not directly described in the table and can only be added using footnotes. A FSM definition including the full actions information is possible using state tables; the Unified Modeling Language has a notation for describing state machines. UML state machines overcome the limitations of traditional finite state machines while retaining their main benefits.
UML state machines introduce the new concepts of hierarchically nested states and orthogonal regions, while extending the notion of actions. UML state machines have the characteristics of Moore machines, they support actions that depend on both the state of the system and the triggering event, as in Mealy machines, as well as entry and exit actions, which are associated with states rather than transitions, as in Moore machines. The Specification and Description Language is a standard from ITU that includes graphical symbols to describe actions in the transition: send an event receive an event start a timer cancel a timer start another concurrent state machine decisionSDL embeds basic data types called "Abstract Data Types", an action language, an execution semantic in order to make the finite state machine executable. There are a large number of variants to represent an FSM such as the one in figure 3. In addition to their use in modeling reactive systems
Friends of Soviet Russia
The Friends of Soviet Russia was formally established in the United States on August 9, 1921 as an offshoot of the American Labor Alliance for Trade Relations with Soviet Russia. It was launched as a "mass organization" dedicated to raising funds for the relief of the extreme famine that swept Soviet Russia in 1921, both in terms of food and clothing for immediate amelioration of the crisis and agricultural tools and equipment for the reconstruction of Soviet agriculture. From 1927 the organization was known as the Friends of the Soviet Union and was the American national affiliate of a new international authority known as the International Association of Friends of the Soviet Union; the Friends of Soviet Russia proved successful in raising funds for Russian relief, generating about $750,000 and clothing worth an additional $300,000 during the first 14 months of its existence. The funds were raised transparently, with the name of each donor and the amount given published in each issue of Soviet Russia.
In round numbers, about 25% of the group's income went to administration and the costs of fundraising with the balance to relief. The FSR was the American division of Workers International Relief, an international organization headed by the German Communist Willy Münzenberg. Membership in the FSR was open without regard to an individual's politics, but the organizational apparatus was controlled by dedicated adherents of the Communist movement. In the documents of the underground Communist Party of the day, the ALA was referred to as "the A" and the FSR as "the B." The FSR published a program in December 1922 which listed the group's aims: to advocate the extension of credits to and recognition of the Soviet government. The FSR was structured around over 200 organized branches around the country, which raised funds to support the relief effort and the organization directing it, it maintained an office in New York and a paid staff of about 40 "organizers", members of the Workers Party of America, some of whom were engaged to travel the country speaking on behalf of the organization and engaging in politics "in their free time."
In this sense, the FSR subsidized WPA activity by providing paid employment for some of its leading cadres. This structure drew the ire of the opponents of the WPA Abraham Cahan, editor of the Socialist Party-affiliated Yiddish daily The Jewish Daily Forward, which began making charges of irregularity and extravagance in the handling of funds on the part of FSR in editorials and news stories in the summer of 1922. In response to these charges, the FSR appointed an "Investigating Committee of Five", including Roger N. Baldwin of the ACLU, Norman Thomas of the League for Industrial Democracy, Robert Morss Lovett of the liberal magazine The New Republic, Timothy Healy of the Stationary Fireman's Union, attorney Walter Nelles. While the last-mention recused himself to avoid possible charges of conflict of interest, the other four members of the committee issued a report at the end of October 1922 clearing the FSR of wrongdoing and attributing the charges against the group to "factional interests."
The organ of the FSR was the magazine Soviet Russia, a plain-paper magazine which had originated as the journal of the Russian Soviet Government Bureau, headed by Ludwig Martens in New York in 1919. The Martens Bureau had first sent out 13 issues of a weekly news sheet called The Weekly Bulletin of the Bureau of Information of The Soviet Union, intended as a sort of news service for the used of other periodicals but had decided to issue its own magazine starting June 7, 1919; the RSGB stated that its new official magazine "is published in order to acquaint the people of the United States with the real conditions in russia and to combat the campaign of deliberate misrepresentation, being waged by enemies of the Russian workers..."As the government of Soviet Russia was not recognized by the government of the United States, Martens was forced to shut down his bureau and leave the country in 1920. To some extent, Friends of Soviet Russia seems to have emerged as a publishing unit to keep this magazine alive.
The group had a more important function, that being the raising of funds for relief of the devastating famine in Soviet Russia in 1921. The group issued and additional typeset newsletter in conjunction with this effort, Russian Famine Relief Bulletin, although Soviet Russia absorbed this auxiliary publication's function. From its earliest days Soviet Russia magazine was a Communist publication printing articles by Soviet leaders such as Zinoviev and Radek about matters of Soviet internal policy and foreign relations; the magazine covered the Russian Civil War and post-war diplomatic relations, economic reconstruction in Russia, domestic political affairs, such as the show trial of the leaders of the Socialist-Revolutionary Party in 1922. This magazine was a bi-weekly for most of the time it was under FSR auspices, switching over to a monthly publication schedule under editor Eugene Lyons in December 1922. Effective with the January 1923 issue, the magazine moved to glossy paper with a new name — Soviet Russia Pictorial.
In late 1923 and 1924, in response to the economic chaos in Germany
