Now he is the professor and doctoral supervisor at Institute of Petroleum Engineering at Yanshan University, and he also takes positions of member of Hebei Province Degree Committee, SPE Drilling &amp; Completion technical editor, editorial member of China Petroleum Machinery, editorial member of Petroleum Drilling Techniques, editorial member of Oil Drilling and Production Technology, director of Petroleum Society of Hebei Province, director of Vibration Engineering Society of Hebei Province, project evaluator of the National Science Foundation Committee, 973 Project evaluator, reviewing specialist for Acta Petrolei Sinica, Acta Mechnica Sinica, and so on. Professor Zifeng Li has been working hard in research and teaching of Petroleum Engineering for more than twenty years, by focusing on theories and applications of mechanical study of rod and pipe strings in oil and gas wells. His motto is to promote man's development, to increase our country's economic power, to educate advanced technicians, and to service for the construction of petroleum industry.;Since 1985, Professor Zifeng Li has established the theoretical system of mechanical study of rod and pipe strings in oil and gas wells, under the support ofthe eighth five year plan,the ninth five year plan national key scientific project and 863 advanced technology development plan. He raised the fundamental equations for dynamic analysis of rod and pipe string in oil and gas wells. Because the fundamental equations for dynamic analysis of rod and pipe string in oil and gas wells have successfully unified all the differential equations used in dynamic analysis of rod and pipe string in oil and gas wells, all the differential equations present used in calculation of tension and torque in directional wells, analysis of drillstring vibration, analysis of BHA, analysis of buckling behavior of pipe and casing strings and analysis of sucker rod pumping system can be obtained just by proper simplifying the fundamental equations. Thus, these equations have broad uses in drilling and production. He has established the steady tension - torque model of rod and pipe strings in directional wells, mathematical models for diagnosis and prediction of the behavior of sucker rod pumping system in directional wells, three-dimensional mathematical models for static analysis of BHA under small and large deflections, mathematical model for drillstring longitudinal vibration, mathematical model for drillstring torsional vibration, mathematical model for drillstring coupling vibration of longitudinal and torsional vibrations, performed elastic and plastic analysis of casing and tubing during steam injection, analysis of static buckling of rod and pipe string in oil and gas wells, analysis of expansion and contraction of slotted tubulars, etc.;These innovative theories and research results are basicallyPetroleum and Horizontal Well Drilling Packaged Technology of the NationalEighth Five Year Plan Key Scientific Project. They are also the research contents in nationalNinth Five Year Plan Key Scientific ProjectSidetracking Horizontal Well Exploitation Packaged Technology andUndersea Extended Reach Well Path Control Technology in 863 Project. They have not only made great progresses in theories but also brought huge economic interest, thus receiving good remarks from domestic and foreign petroleum fields and mechanics fields. Professor Zifeng Li has also worked out these models and compiled them into the packaged industry application software, which is extensively used in petroleum exploitation works. For his outstanding contributions, Professor Zifeng Li has received Awards for Sun Yueqi Science Education in Postdoctoral Studies from China Science Development Foundation in 1997, he has also received the 4 th scientific award for youths in Heilongjiang Province.

YuriKeilman <p>I graduated in theoretical physics in Russia in 1966. Worked in theoretical physics at home only. In 1982 I obtained nonsingular particle in Classical Electrodynamics (CED). This solution will replace the famous singular solution (1/r). Later I obtained solutions that correspond to light particles. I think that besides E-M transverse waves that carry energy and momentum there exist the longituginal waves in CED that do not carry any energy or momentum but influence particles through boundary conditions.;Articles (General Science Journal);Added Apr. 7, 2009: The Real Meaning of Special Relativity;Added Oct. 18, 2008: Objective Formulation of Special Relativity;Added Oct. 1, 2007: Once More on the Meaning of Special Relativity Theory;Added Sep. 24, 2007: In-Depth Analysis of Classical Electrodynamics (CED);Added Dec. 28, 2006: The Nicola Tesla Connection;Added Oct. 10, 2006: On the Physical Meaning of the Energy-Momentum Tensor;Added Sep. 25, 2006: We Live in a World where Non-Conservation of Linear Momentum is a Common Phenomenon;Added Sep. 12, 2006: Difficult Statements;Added Sep. 2, 2006: Dummy Waves Are Responsible for Gravity;Added Aug. 24, 2006: Dummy Waves;Added Aug. 22, 2006: My Mistake: The Notion That There is No Electric Field Inside a Capacitor is Wrong;Added Jun. 11, 2006: Unfortunate Relativity;Updated Jan. 5, 2005: The Failure of Maxwell's Equations Inside a Capacitor [HTML] - Version;Added Dec. 6, 2005: Classical Interpretation of de Broglie's Waves;Added Dec. 6, 2005: The Lorentz Problem of 1890 Solved by Einstein in 1905;Updated Feb. 2, 2005: The Basic Principles of Classical Electrodynamics (HTML) - PDF Version;Updated Feb. 2, 2005: Classical Approach to the Theory of Elementary Particles [HTML] - PDF Version;Added Sep. 23, 2004: The Concept of "Mass" in Extended Classical ElectroDynamics (ECED);Added Sep. 16, 2004: Mathematics that Every Physicist Should Know;Added Sep. 13, 2004: Symmetry in Classical Physics;Updated Sep. 13, 2004: Classical Electrodynamics;Updated Sep. 13, 2004: Experiment to Test the Local Equivalence Principle;Added May 24, 2004: Special Relativity is a Classical Theory;Added Dec. 4, 2002: Relativity is a Two-Faced Janus;Added Jul, 14, 2002: Derivation of Special Relativity from Maxwell's Equations</p> 9 2011-12-16 More...

WilliamStubbs <p>William L. Stubbs is a retired nuclear engineer who worked for nearly 30 years for the Federal Government and in the private sector. During his career, he designed and analyzed nuclear reactor cores, developed computer models of nuclear systems, and managed the disposal of radioactive wastes.;I studied nuclear engineering at the University of Tennessee during the mid 1970s. While working as a nuclear engineer in Pittsburgh, in my spare time I attempted to formulate simpler explanations of nuclear phenomena such as structure and binding with little success. Finally in 1993 it dawned on me that protons and neutrons might be made of beta particles. I had been taught that beta particles did not reside in the nucleus, but had not realized that the assertion was made because betas in the nucleus did not fit the theory scientists were attempting to validate at the time. The alpha-beta theory of the nucleus was born out of the idea that the structures and mechanisms that make up the nucleus of the atom should not be bizarre or exotic, but should be simple and resemble other systems found in nature. Its purpose is to show that relatively simple simple explanations are available for nuclear structure and behavior that produce consistent and accurate results.</p> 4 2012-06-07 More...

WilliamSpann <p>I began my interest in Cosmology and Catastrophism in 1975 at the tender age of 16 when my family moved to Decatur Georgia just a few miles from the Fernbank Science center, where I spent an inordinate amount of time at the planetarium events and rummaging through the science museum and exhibits. One day I met with the curator of the Museum with whom I'd gained acquaintance, to ask for advise on a topic or subject on which I might be able to write one single term paper to cover all three term paper assignments for my History, Science, and Sociology classes I had due that semester. He reached behind him and pulled from his bookshelf a rather tattered and yellowed paperback book, which he freely offered to me on the one condition that I never tell anyone where I got it. I thought the condition odd at the time, but I took the book and read it cover to cover in a matter of days. The title of that book was WORLDS IN COLLISION.</p> 0 2011-12-16 More...

WilliamBlackmon <p>I obtained a B.S. in chemistry from Duke University in 1961 and entered the Navy. After four years in the Navy (two years with Underwater Demolition Team 21) I returned to school at NCSU and got a Ph. D. in the area of Plant Physiology. As a graduate student at NCSU, I had been trying to understand how enzymes lower the activation energies of reactions. Then what became obsessive questions emerged: What is energy and Why does matter possess relative movement;モSnakes In a Boxヤ;As a young kid my Uncles told me that my Grandfather had found two snakes eating each other. Each had the otherメs tail in its mouth. He placed them in a secure box and when he opened the box the next day, it was empty. The snakes had eaten each other! Try as hard as I could, I could not visualize how it could have happened. But it had to be true, my trusted Uncles had told me.;I entered college with the same faith in my professors and encountered concepts such as the dual nature of light that I could not reconcile. Later, an acquaintance asked: モWhy do you think you are wrong and are just unable to grasp such foundational conceptsヤ From that point my quest has become to understand: What is the structure of the Universe that makes our laws and theories useful This approach is different from trying to disprove or support a law or theory.;Laws and theories are not logical necessities but empirical associations derived from observations in the distributions of matter. Thus, the ultimate unit of matter should represent the ultimate reference point. If one had a grasp of the ultimate components of a system, it should be possible, in theory, to envision a structure for the system that accounts for the phenomena as detected at the observational level. This type of rational has been an influence in manメs quest to understand the workings of nature for a long time. However, since the musings of Democritus, storehouses of scientific observations have been accumulated that provide a background of information available for interpretation and reinterpretation. Sometimes a better understanding of a previously conducted experiment is as valuable as a new experiment. (See the Ultimate Components presented under William Blackmon @ http://www.Researchgate.net.);Listed below are some モSnakes in a Boxヤ for which Pivotal Concepts (See http://www.pivotalconceptsinscience.com) offers explanations.;1. Matter and energy are inter-convertible, i.e. E 0 = m 0 c 2.;2. The speed of light c is independent of the relative motion of the source and observer.;3. Light is both a wave and a particle ヨ the dual nature of light.;4. A light signal traveling in a vacuum at c undergoes a reduction in speed when it enters a transparent medium, but resumes the speed c upon exit back into the vacuum.;5. Regardless of the intensity of a source, the velocity of energy released never exceeds c, and the radiation component from a source only occurs at c.;6. In the area of optics, signal transmission may be represented by rays, which may change directions, be divided, and recombined.;And the snakes in the box --- They were virtual quantum snakes of course!</p> 0 2013-09-14 More...
