The onrushing Qiantang tidal bore in east China's Zhejiang Province rose to its highest point and hit Laoyancang dam, sending roaring sounds up to the air and forming a spectacular scene by creating a huge backflow bore. The tidal bore moves very fast in the river, reaching speeds of up to 13 meters per second.
This crisscrossing would extend into an indefinite future, surely, a compound matrix of matrices of acquaintance and similar hopes. But of course, like the movies themselves, they are only part of an onrushing now, ever present, but as memory, elusive instants amid a congeries, a congress, a confluence of taste that we now know would not abide.
Among other. things, onrushing Allied armies have been capturing a gooddeal of topnotch German technical equipment. Last week Dr. VannevarBush's OSRD told how U.S. ingenuity had put some of this equipment touse in spite of Nazi effort to sabotage it.
Our hiking party included six Canadians, six Norwegians, two British citizens, Joe and me (by far the oldest members), and our Peruvian guides. En route to the Inca Trail, we spent a night in Ollantaytambo, the site of a famous battle between the Incas and the Spanish. Our impulsive decision to attend a local bullfight proved more adventurous than we'd intended. The locals formed a large ring in a field, and two bulls were led into the ring and encouraged to fight each other with the help of a whip wielded by a man wearing a bizarre skeleton outfit. The fight was won when one bull pushed the other into the ring of people, who would then flee the onrushing bulls. We promptly joined the ring. But when one pair of bulls declined to fight, Skeleton Man whipped one bull very hard, prompting its owner to run into the ring and punch him. While everyone else joined in the ensuing melee, we hightailed it out of there.
To understand the physical phenomena and propose countermeasures/improvements, simulation tools to perform computations of the entire dynamical system including subground, track structure and the railway vehicle has been developed. In particular, large effort has been devoted to the special wave propagation problem related to high-speed trains running at soft ground materials. As the speed of the train approaches and exceeds the natural (Rayleigh) wave propagation velocity of the ground material, shock waves similar to sonic boom originates from the onrushing train. The problem area contains several computational challenges since it impose techniques to handle non-reflecting boundaries, time integration of large-scale problems, non-linear material response etc.
On theirSenior Night and in a downpour, the Blue Devils came out with a lot of fury butthe Tar Heels weathered the early storm and struck for a sensational goal byMorris at 9:53 of the match. From theright side of the pitch, freshman midfielder Katie Bowen served a ball to thetop of the box where Maria Lubrano laid out and redirected it to an onrushingMorris. The junior from Montclair, N.J.,took one dribble and buried a shot into the lower left corner of the goal pastDuke senior goalkeeper Tara Campbell.
It tookless than eight minutes into the second half for the Tar Heels to get theinsurance goal they needed to put the game away. Off a free kick just inside midfield byCrystal Dunn, Duke was unable to get a clean clearance. Senior midfielder Amber Brooks headed theball back toward the Duke goal and freshman Summer Green gobbled it up,dribbling to the end line and delivering a perfect cross to the onrushingOhai. The junior from Draper, Utah tookthe pass in stride and finished into the left side of the net from thefour-yard line. It was the fourth goalof the season for Ohai. 2b1af7f3a8
