This book is essentially a detailed Sniper Training manual for use by Military/LE Snipers, Competition shooters, Long Range Hunters, and other enthusiasts. It describes, in detail, methods of range and wind estimation and includes practical exercises to ensure that the reader understands the methods outlined and also has a quick reference guide for the most commonly used equations in this skill set. The book was primarily written for those new to long range shooting however, I hope that even experienced shooters will benefit from the book.

Updated 2013 ebook version As a competition shooter you can control many things, but you cannot control the wind conditions. To excel in any outdoor shooting sport you will need to learn how to compensate for the effects of the wind. Written by Master Sergeant Jim Owens, his 20+ years of Marine Corps Shooting Team experience will give you the knowledge of how to read, judge and adjust for the wind - in any type of rifle competition. Jim’s book presents a simple system for judging the speed, direction and value of the wind. You'll learn to read the mirage, how to accurately read the range flag, estimate wind speed, wind strategies, effects on the bullet and much more. The coaching techniques section will help your own performance and that of others when shooting in the wind. Also included are 22 sets of wind charts for a variety of calibers (.223, .308, 6.5-08, 6.5-284, .300 Win. Mag.), bullet weights, and for both Across the course and Long Range. There are 80 wind charts in total ! "My scores have improved drastically. I thank you for your books. High Power shooting is enjoyable when you do better." —Neal Trubitt “Your series of books and tapes have helped me make the first daunting steps and I entered my first competitive event ever, the 2004 NRA High Power Week Competition at Camp Perry. Your Data Book is the best that I have seen and all the information that you had put together and your personal commitment to Juniors in the sport is indeed commendable.” —Steven Field Keywords: windage,rifle,high power,clicks,adjustment,range,chart,training, practice,wind speed,kentucky,hold,sight picture,aim,competition,NRA

Prepared by theØTask Committee on Wind-Induced Forces and Task Committee on Anchor Bolt Design of the Petrochemical Committee of the Energy Division of ASCE. This report presents state-of-the-practice set of guidelines for the determination of wind-induced forces and the design of anchor bolts for petrochemical facilities. Current codes and standards do not address many of the structures found in the petrochemical industry. As a result, engineers and petrochemical companies have independently developed procedures and techniques for handling engineering issues such as the twoØcontained in this report. A lack of standardization in the industry has led to inconsistent structural reliability, however. This volume is intended for structural design engineers familiar with design of industrial-type structures.

During the past 20 years, the field of mechanical engineering has undergone enormous changes. These changes have been driven by many factors, including: the development of computer technology worldwide competition in industry improvements in the flow of information satellite communication real time monitoring increased energy efficiency robotics automatic control increased sensitivity to environmental impacts of human activities advances in design and manufacturing methods These developments have put more stress on mechanical engineering education, making it increasingly difficult to cover all the topics that a professional engineer will need in his or her career. As a result of these developments, there has been a growing need for a handbook that can serve the professional community by providing relevant background and current information in the field of mechanical engineering. The CRC Handbook of Mechanical Engineering serves the needs of the professional engineer as a resource of information into the next century.

This book provides a comprehensive summary of the recent developments in wind-erosion research and a clear outline of its future directions. The physics of wind-erosion, from particle entrainment to transport and deposition, is described with rigor from the viewpoints of fluid dynamics and soil physics. The techniques for quantitative wind-erosion prediction through computational modelling constitutes a unique feature of this book in contrast to others published in the same field. For the first time, wind-erosion has been considered systematically as a multidisciplinary subject. The author has advocated the development of integrated wind-erosion modelling systems which couple dynamic models for the atmosphere and land surface with spatially distributed data for land-surface conditions. The successful applications of such a system have demonstrated its usefulness in wind-erosion assessment and prediction on regional to continental scales. This book offers a valuable reference point for researchers and postgraduate students engaged in wind-erosion related studies, ranging from global climate change to atmospheric aerosols, dust storms, air quality, and land conservation.
