    Inspection by nondestructive testing techniques is not perfect and it has become common practice to quantify the reliability of flaw detection in terms of the probability of detection (POD) and the probability of false indication. Experimental measurement of these quantities is expensive and attention has therefore recently turned to modelling them. This paper discusses the benefits of, approaches... View full abstract»

    Two unique low-fall hydroelectric power plants which operated until after the nationalisation of the UK electricity supply industry were built to supply the cities of Chester and York. At Chester, the erection of a hydroelectric power plant at a weir on the River Dee in 1913 provided an attractive alternative to extending the existing thermal station. This scheme was the only one in England dealin... View full abstract»
