He demonstrates how designs may be regarded as instruments for cognition - extensions of the viewer's mind in a lot an identical manner hammer is an extension of the user's hand.

Experienced expert designers and scholars alike will find out how to maximize the facility of the data instruments they layout for the folk who use them.
• offers visible pondering as a fancy procedure that may be supported in each level utilizing particular layout techniques.
• offers useful, task-oriented info for designers and software program builders charged with layout responsibilities.
• contains thousands of examples, many within the kind of built-in textual content and full-color diagrams.
• Steeped within the ideas of "active vision", which perspectives image designs as cognitive instruments.

Example text

A screening approach to determine the level of monitoring necessary is described by NCRP (1996a). 1 Academic Institutions. Academic institutions that support research and teaching with radioactive materials and radiation use a variety of radionuclides and radiation sources, including radiation-producing machines. Some research institutions are focused on specific applications for a few radionuclides, while others use a large number of radionuclides in small quantities (NCRP, 2007a). Most NRC and Agreement State licensees including academic institutions and research facilities must comply with the NRC Constraint Rule (NRC, 2010d).

The radiological effluent monitoring program must provide data to evaluate potential health and environmental impacts, long-term effects, and the need for mitigative measures. The effluent monitoring program must be capable of detecting radionuclides from the facility before they leave the site boundary (EPA, 2001a). For high-level waste repositories (EPA, 2000a; 2000b; NRC, 2010g) and land burial units (NRC, 2010h), monitoring requirements in NRC (2010d) apply. ” Monitoring systems are required to have testable alarms.

Radiological effluent releases are generally limited to uranium in the forms of U2O8, UO3, UO2F2, and UF4. 3 Enrichment Facilities. Radiological effluent monitoring and environmental surveillance programs at enrichment facilities such as gaseous diffusion and ultracentrifuge plants also are focused on the 238U decay series. However, 235U series radionuclides may be a more significant concern. In the enrichment process, the ratio of 234U to 238U activity is altered such that enriched uranium has a significantly higher specific activity due to the increased 234U activity.
