Environmental Engineering Abstracts

Environmental Engineering Abstracts covers the world literature pertaining to technological and engineering aspects of air and water quality, environmental safety, and energy production.

Sources include more than 500 primary journals thoroughly indexed and abstracted. Over 2,500 additional sources, including monographs and conference proceedings, are also monitored for relevant articles.

Subject Coverage
    Major areas of coverage include:
    • Agricultural equipment and methods
    • Arctic and tropical engineering
    • Coastal engineering
    • Environmental impact and protection
    • Hazardous materials
    • Heat exchangers
    • Hydroelectric power
    • Internal combustion engines
    • Mines and quarry equipment
    • Nuclear power plants
    • Pipes and pipelines
    • Sources and control of air pollution
    • Steam power
    • Thermoelectric energy
    • Tidal and wind power
    • Treatment of sewage and industrial wastes
    • Turbines
    • Water analysis and treatment techniques
Dates of Coverage
    Approximately 1990-current. The oldest record in the database has a publication date of 1973; about 50% of its records have publication dates of 1997 or later.

    AB: Abstract
    As obsolescence and spare parts issues drive nuclear power plants to upgrade with new technologies (such as optical fiber communication systems), the ability of the new technologies to withstand environmental stresses that act at the installation location needs to be determined. New standards may be required to address environmental qualification and their application to the nuclear power plants of tomorrow. This article discusses the failure modes and age-related degradation mechanisms relevant to fiber-optic communication systems in particular, and suggests a methodology for identifying conditions under which accelerated aging should be performed during qualification testing. While optical fiber communication systems have been used as the basis for discussion, the methodology presented should be applicable to any safety-related instrumentation and control equipment not covered under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR 50.49).
