Logic solver white paper
Moore Industries International released a technical white paper exploring the possibilities available to designers of safety instrumented systems using logic solvers as part of a tank overfill protection system. The white paper, "Logic Solver for Tank Overfill Protection," provides examples of straightforward tank overfill protection system topographies and associated safety integrity level calculations. It guides safety engineers through the steps needed to determine the right logic solver for their needs and shows the methodology and calculations for determining applicable logic solvers in SIL 1 and SIL 2 environments. In many cases, discrete logic devices such as the STA Safety Trip Alarm are suitable for use while providing a flexible, low-cost and user-friendly solution.

The proceedings of the 2013 International Conference of Information Science and Management Engineering (ISME 2013) held in Wuhan, China, is presented in the new book, Manufacture Engineering and Environment Engineering by WIT Press. The conference served to present new research results and the demonstration of new systems and techniques in the broad fields of information systems, information technology, information management, and their applications in management engineering. It also brought together researchers, developers and users from around the world to share state-of-art results, explore new areas of research and development, and discuss emerging issues facing business organizations in the knowledge economy.
The Compressed Air and Gas Institute announced the release of its latest standard, CAGI BL 5389, Simplified Acceptance Test of Electric Driven, Low Pressure Turbocompressor Air Blower Packages. The standard provides a simplified, wire-to-air performance test code applicable to packaged, low-pressure turbocompressors handling atmospheric air. The ISO 5389 standard provides a detailed, complex procedure to test and rate turbocompressor blowers. It is an easily-integrated, cost-effective, yet highly accurate approach to testing and is applicable to all dynamic blower packages in all industrial and municipal air applications. While the standard is intended for use with all types of turbocompressor blower packages, it will be particularly useful for machines that are manufactured in batches or in continuous production quantities.

Induced seismicity white paper
For the past several years, the topic of induced seismicity, or earthquakes caused by human activities - in particular hydraulic fracturing and disposal wells - has been the source of heightened interest. To help disseminate factual information on the subject, the Ground Water Protection Council and its research arm, the Ground Water Research and Education Foundation, have released two white papers summarizing important details covered in sessions on induced seismicity presented at two of the organization's 2013 conferences.
