case-hardening or surface hardening is the process of hardening the surface of a metal object while allowing the metal deeper underneath to remain soft, thus forming a thin layer of harder metal called the 'case' at the surface. for iron or steel with low carbon content, which has poor to no hardenability of its own, the case-hardening process involves infusing additional carbon or nitrogen .
raeder believed the navy was unprepared for the start of world war ii by at least five years. the surface fleet was inadequate to fight the royal navy and instead adopted a strategy of convoy raiding.
the effects of natural movement due to settlement, expansion, and contraction may eventually lead to leaks. copper is an excellent material for flashing because of its malleability, strength, solderability, workability, high resistance to the caustic effects of mortars and hostile environments, and long service life. this enables a roof to be built without weak points.
60 fe is an extinct radionuclide of long half-life 2.6 million years . it is not found on earth, but its ultimate decay product is its granddaughter, the stable nuclide 60 ni. much of the past work on isotopic composition of iron has focused on the nucleosynthesis of 60 fe through studies of meteorites and ore formation.
liberty ships were a class of cargo ship built in the united states during world war ii.though british in concept, the design was adapted by the united states for its simple, low-cost construction. mass-produced on an unprecedented scale, the liberty ship came to symbolize u.s. wartime industrial output.

fuel, operational, and maintenance costs are relatively small components of the total cost. the long service life and high productivity of nuclear power plants allow sufficient funds for ultimate plant decommissioning and waste storage and management to be accumulated, with little impact on the price per unit of electricity generated.
