AUSTRALIA’S BID FOR THE 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP™ OR 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP™ “The proposal in this Bid Book represents the hopes and dreams of perhaps the world’s most sports-loving nation. Australia will welcome the world for a FIFA World Cup™, as we have welcomed the world since our nationhood little more than 200 years ago. Our Bid is financially and operationally secure. We are ready to host FIFA’s flagship event, and FIFA can be certain Australia will fully deliver on its responsibilities and obligations as a host nation. The expansion of our excellent sports infrastructure will leave a long and lasting benefit to football in Australia and the region.” The Honourable Kevin Rudd MP Prime Minister of Australia “A quarter of Australians were born overseas, and three million Australians speak a language other than English at home. Every nation represented at a FIFA World Cup™ in Australia will have its own base of support and be able to call Australia a “home away from home”. As a member of the Asian Football Confederation, and a former member of the Oceania Football Confederation, Australia can be a bridge between these regions and an integral player in the development of football in the Asia-Pacific. As hosts, we would consider it our obligation and our proud duty, in partnership with FIFA, to find ways to use the world’s greatest event to bring help where it is needed most. Football is a powerful vehicle for sustainable social cohesion, inclusion and equity.” Frank Lowy AC Chairman Football Federation Australia...

About the CIES Football Observatory The CIES Football Observatory is a unique project initiated in 2005 by Drs Raffaele Poli and Loïc Ravenel under the name of the Professional Football Players Observatory (PFPO). Since 2011 it is one of the cornerstones of the broader CIES Sports Observatory project, dedicated to the statistical analysis of sport in all its diversity. Two annual reports are published for football. In January, the Demographic Study presents an in-depth analysis of club composition and player characteristics in 31 top division leagues of UEFA member countries. In June, the Annual Review analyses clubs and players in the big-5 European leagues from a demographic, economic and pitch performance perspective. Methodological rigour coupled with a deep knowledge of football guarantee high quality analyses at competitive rates. For more information: www.football-observatory.com About the CIES The International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES) is an independent study centre located in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. It was created in 1995 as a joint venture between the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the University of Neuchâtel, the City and State of Neuchatel.

Henan Li Marine Technology Submission date: June 2012 Supervisor: Svein Sævik, IMT Norwegian University of Science and Technology Department of Marine Technology THESIS WORK SPRING 2012 for Stud. tech. Henan Li Flexible Pipe Stress and Fatigue Analysis Spennings- og utmatnings-analyse av fleksible stigerø r The flexible riser represents a vital part of many oil and gas production systems. During operation of such risers, several failure incidents may take place e.g. caused by fatigue and corrosion. In limit cases where inspections indicate damage, the decision making with regard to continue operation or replacing the riser may have large economic and environmental consequences. Hence, the decision must be based on accurate models to predict the residual strength of the pipe. In most applications, one or several steel layers are used to carry the hoop stress resulting from internal pressure. This is further combined with two layers of cross-wound armour tendons (typically 40-60 tendons in one layer installed with an angle of 35o with the pipe’s length axis) acting as the steel tensile armour to resist the tension and end cap wall force resulting from pressure. The riser fatigue performance may in many cases be governed by the dynamic stresses in the tensile armour. The existing lifetime models for such structures is primarily based on inherent assumptions with respect to the slip properties of the tensile armour. This thesis work focus on establishing a FEM based model for analysis of the tensile armour, so as to analyse the stress and slip behaviour when exposed to different load conditions. The thesis work is to be based on the project work performed and shall include the following steps: 1) Literature study, including flexible pipe technology, failure modes and design criteria, analytical methods for stress analysis of flexible pipes,...
The asymptotic results (Kumaran 1998b) obtained for Λ ∼ 1 for the ﬂow in a ﬂexible tube are extended to the limit Λ 1 using a numerical scheme, where Λ is the dimensionless parameter Re1/3 (G/ρV 2 ), Re = (ρV R/η) is the Reynolds number, ρ and η are the density and viscosity of the ﬂuid, R is the tube radius and G is the shear modulus of the wall material. The results of this calculation indicate that the least-damped mode becomes unstable when Λ decreases below a transition value at a ﬁxed Reynolds number, or when the Reynolds number increases beyond a transition value at a ﬁxed Λ. The Reynolds number at which there is a transition from stable to unstable perturbations for this mode is determined as a function of the parameter Σ = (ρGR 2 /η 2 ), the scaled wavenumber of the perturbations kR, the ratio of radii of the wall and ﬂuid H and the ratio of viscosities of the wall material and the ﬂuid ηr . For ηr = 0, the Reynolds number at which there is a transition from stable to 1, and the unstable perturbations decreases proportional to Σ 1/2 in the limit Σ neutral stability curves have a rather complex behaviour in the intermediate regime with the possibility of turning points and isolated domains of instability. In the limit Σ 1, the Reynolds number at which there is a transition from stable to unstable perturbations increases proportional to Σ α , where α is between 0.7 and 0.75. An increase in the ratio of viscosities ηr has a complex eﬀect on the Reynolds number for neutrally stable modes, and it is observed that there is a maximum ratio of viscosities at speciﬁed values of H at which neutrally stable modes exist; when the ratio of viscosities is greater than this maximum value, perturbations are always stable.
When a ﬂow is driven through a deformable channel or tube, interactions between ﬂuid-mechanical and elastic forces can lead to a variety of biologically signiﬁcant phenomena, including nonlinear pressure-drop/ﬂow-rate relations, wave propagation, and the generation of instabilities. Understanding the physical origin and nature of these phenomena remains a signiﬁcant experimental, analytical, and computational challenge, involving unsteady ﬂows at low or high Reynolds numbers, large-amplitude ﬂuid-structure interactions, free-surface ﬂows, and intrinsically 2D or 3D motion. Whereas frequently the internal ﬂow involves a single ﬂuid phase (albeit often of a complex biological ﬂuid such as blood), in many instances the presence of two or more distinct ﬂowing phases is of primary importance (as is the case for air-liquid ﬂows in peripheral lung airways, for example). We divide this review accordingly: Section 2 treats single-phase ﬂows in collapsible tubes, Section 3 covers recent applications of such ﬂows to a wide range of physiological 0066-4189/04/0115-0121$14.00
The latest 3.4 litre version of the Powertec RP V8 Doubled up Tom Sharp investigates a cost effective V8 racing engine on behalf of Powertec. It essentially consists of a pair of Hayabusa engines, arranged at a 72° bank angle, driving a common crankshaft and mounted to a dedicated dry-sumped crankcase. The result is a P keenly priced V8 engine that is very light, powerful and reliable. The having initially a 2.6 litre displacement, it had been commissioned by been joined by three other varieties (see Table 1), which demonstrates Radical Motorsport for installation into that company’s SR8 sports-racing just how much flexibility is in the base package. The numbers tell the car. Radical specialised in motorcycle-engined sports-racers and was story of commercial success well enough. Powertec have to date built keen to augment its popular four cylinder machines with a V8. a total of 110 RP engines (including 75 RPAs and 25 RPBs); volumes owertec Engineering’s innovative, Suzuki Hayabusa-based engine is now owned, manufactured and built by Powertec Engineering RP V8 engine was introduced in the UK at the Autosport from its base in Peterborough, England.

However, DOSSIER : POWERTEC RP V8 ENGINE RP V8 CAD image governs UK motorsport – they banned it on the grounds of it not being derived from a passenger-carrying vehicle. Horne’s solicitors eventually ensured the car received its required log book but the MSA made it clear that the RP was not welcome in rallying. Powertec’s original product portfolio plan had included a 2.0 litre ‘screamer’ version, but as Ted Hurrell explains customer demand drove the capacity in the opposite direction. “The screamer was originally conceived for use in 2.0 litre hillclimb and VdeV sportscar racing, however the VdeV regulations quickly changed to insist upon four cylinder car engines and our hillclimb customers went in the direction of the unlimited classes, which means increasing swept volume as far as possible to maximize torque. So only one 2.0 litre engine was built before that variant was then unfortunately the RP series only represents 20% of Powertec’s business; the majority revolves around building and tuning the Suzuki Hayabusa four cylinder shelved. “Those two examples, of the 2.5 and 2.0 litre engines go to engines for markets such as motorbike racing, low volume production...
