Nuclear Plants At Risk For Tsunamis
2012-09-22 06:21:25

April Flowers for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In March 2011, Japan was hit with a tsunami as a result of a magnitude 9.0 undersea earthquake. The tsunami waves reached heights of 133 feet and traveled about 10 kilometers inland. The earthquake was so enormous that it actually shifted the main island of Japan 8 feet east and shifted the Earth on its axis by 4 — 10 inches. As if that weren't bad enough, the tsunami caused the largest nuclear disaster since the...

Lee Rannals for RedOrbit.com New research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) may have an impact in a range of industries, from engineering to pharmaceutical manufacturing. Ken Kamrin of MIT's Department of Mechanical Engineering has created a model that predicts the flow of granular materials under a variety of conditions. Sand's behavior, which is part fluid, part solid, has made it difficult for researchers to predict how it and other granular materials flow under...
