Parmetol, a wood preservativerecommended by the manufacturer was used as a fungicidal additive to paint on the Blue Poplar wood sculpture in Amsterdam, by artist Mari Shields [ - art conservation consult DJF- artist MS 2010]. Also see the Blue Poplar wood sculpture tree Project photos Week 2. We discussed mold cleanup, mold prevention, wood preservation, wood painting, and use of restoration expoxies affecting this project.
Cracks, Checking or Splitting Beams & Log Homes - Checking or splits in solid logs used to construct both antique and modern log houses worry homeowners even though usually they do not present a structural problem. But checks in structural wood beams as well as checks and splits in logs used to construct log homes can result in water or air leaks into the building.

PAINT FALURE, DIAGNOSIS, CURE, PREVENTION - Working with museum conservators such as Ulrik Runeberg, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Puerto Rico, San Juan, we have found that forensic analysis of small surface samples of stains, using simple adhesive tape sampling can provide useful art conservation information without requiring punch samples or paint chip samples. Our photo (above right) of a closeup of the surface of a painting whose surface was flaking was provided courtesy of Mr. Runeberg and formed part of a joint investigation into the adhesion failure of paint in this work.

Dynamic language translation, mathematics and computer simulation
Friedman, Dan J., Jr., "Use of a Language Translator for Small Program Transition during Small System Growth", IBM Systems Manufacturing Division, Poughkeepsie, Technical Publication, TR 20.0442, (April, 1972)
Abstract: Managers of data processing installations should avoid several common traps when translating old pograms to run on a new system. Inefficiencies may arise thorugh this approach. While the use of a language translator may seem to be a tempting solution to growth problems, translation or emulation to enable the use of new hardware with old softwater may perpetuate old unit-record logic throughout the evolution of a data processing system. Such translation should be used only for an intermediate step in system growth.
This report points out some of the dangers of such an approach to growth; it evaluates the advantages of using a language translator (which are also applicable to the use of emulators); and, it proposes a technique which makes translation more effective.
Friedman, Dan J., Jr., "Measuring and Evaluating Systems Performance", IBM Systems Manufacturing Division, Poughkeepsie, Technical Publication, TR 20.0427, (June 1971)
Abstract: This report presents a survey of concetps, evaluative schemes, and measurement techniques used in the evaluation of systems. It discusses measurement project planning and implementation, hardware measurement devicves, anmd documentation and use of measurement results. The report is oriented towards measurement techniques, and gives brief mention to predictive techniques, such as simulation, which is discussed widely in the literature. It also contains a glossary , a reference bibliography6 for literature in the field, as well as an appendix of OS/360 performance considerations.
