One-week summer program at MIT


  • Anonymous


A special one-week summer program on Engineering Aspects of Heat Disposal from Power Generation will be held at the MIT Parsons Laboratory for Water Resources and Hydrodynamics June 28–July 2, 1971. This special summer program is designed for engineers, ecologists, educators, members of the utility industry, and regulatory agencies who are concerned with the problem of heat disposal associated with fossil and nuclear power generation. Emphasis will be placed on the use of predictive techniques in assessing the feasibility of alternative methods of heat disposal. Topics will include: once-through cooling processes in lakes, rivers, estuaries, and the ocean; natural temperature variations, cooling ponds, cooling towers, beneficial uses, management models, and the impact of thermal pollution control standards. The program is under the direction of Donald R.F. Harleman.
