In this paper, we concern the Principal Ideal Theorem (PIT) for w-Noetherian rings. Let R be a w-Noetherian ring and a be a nonzero nonunit element of R. If p is a prime ideal of R minimal over (a), then ht p ≦ 1.
The AL-R8 stainless steel sealed insert that is currently used for interim storage of plutonium pits at the Pantex facility in Amarillo, Texas, is designed to provide an inert storage environment for the plutonium pits for a 50-year service life. There is concern that the high chlorine content and absorbed moisture present in the packaging material, Celotex, may lead to corrosion of the container over time. The main objective of this study was to determine chlorine in the Celotex as well as in the various leaching procedures using neutron activation analysis.
The fragments of a high quality, enamel painted, blue glass bottle with the date 1671 on its shoulder were found in the Castle District of Buda, in a huge pit dated to the period of the Ottoman occupation. The shape of the object shows eastern influences, while its decoration is clearly western. The origin of the bottle is probably Transylvanian, based on its characteristics and a small group of parallels.

Topochemistry of the initial stages of evaporation and dissolution of monoclinic single crystals of paracetamol and phenacetin was studied. Thermal treatment of these crystals showed that the morphology of etch pits depicts the symmetry of etched planes. The shapes of pits formed during chemical etching of the cleavage plane of a paracetamol crystal by different etchants were not similar to each other. The chemical etching of the cleavage plane of a phenacetin crystal resulted in the formation of pits stretched along the same direction, independently of the chosen solvent. An interpretation of this result is suggested, based on the analysis of the anisotropy of the crystal structure and presence of steric hindrance.
The paper presents some results of in-situ seismological observations in hard-coal mines in the Ostrava-Karviná Coal Basin (OKCB) (Czech Republic) and in open-pit brown-coal and shale mines in Northwest and Central Bohemia, respectively. Trial measurements were aimed at investigating the peak particle velocity (PPV), which usually enables some criteria for the limitations of damage extent to be derived, e.g. of surface residential buildings, workings underground, failure and/or wall sliding. While rockbursts in hard-coal mines represent the source of recorded seismic waves, as opposed to that, shot-hole explosions for generating seismic waves in open-pit mines were used. Based on the regression analysis of the results of PPV experimental measurements vs. the square-root scaling factor for rockbursts and cube square factor for hole-shot explosion were applied, the slopes b of straight lines on the bilogarithmic scale were derived, i.e. b = −0.962 and b = −1.894, −1.843 and −2.256, respectively. On the other hand, PPV observed in the region of OKCB displayed values about 1–2 mm/s, while PPV at the sites in open-pit mines reached values roughly of 1–2 m/s due to a significantly smaller hypocentral distance, i.e. seismic source-velocity sensor distance.
