Description
The mission of the Department of National Security Affairs (NSA) is to deliver advanced education and research to promote the security of the United States and its allies, and enhance the effectiveness of the U.S. Navy. NSA brings an outstanding faculty of political scientists, historians, and economists together with students from all branches of the U.S. military, defense-related civilian agencies, and international officers in an engaging learning environment designed to deepen knowledge of regional and security affairs, while fostering critical thinking, intellectual independence, and a global perspective.

    NSA Professor Jessica Piombo Awarded Minerva Grant
    (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-11-13) National Security Affairs (NSA); School of International Graduate Studies (SIGS); National Security Affairs
    NSA Professor Jessica Piombo has been awarded one of the Minerva Initiative University Grants. It is part of the full grant program that OSD Minerva runs, rather than the defense institution program, which means that this is an award for three years for a project that she will conduct with Professor Pierre Englebert from Pomona College. The two will split the $780k grant between their two institutions. The basic topic asks why states respond to international intervention in different ways. More specifically, why do some states cooperate with international statebuilding interventions as passive recipients of external action, while others are much more controlling of the processes of international intervention, and yet others seem to go along with the goals and programs of international actors, yet undermine the implementation of programs. The project will look at interventions in fragile and post-conflict states are often designed and implemented by outside actors as technocratic responses to situations of political disorder, state weakness, and civil unrest. The interventions, often built on international best practices, rarely unfold in the ways initially conceived by their designers, however, because in reality, these are highly political processes. The awardees propose to investigate how the ways that local actors and institutional environments engage with these projects during implementation significantly changes their nature, by proposing two related questions. First, how do local political dynamics explain variations in the degree and type of engagement of African regimes with outside actors, particularly in conflict-affected countries where international and local agents share sovereignty? Second, how do these variations condition the course of the intervention and the actions of the interveners?

    Numerical and experimental study of failure of the human proximal femur
    (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1996-03) Van Court, Ronald R.; Kwon, Young W.; National Security Affairs (NSA); School of International Graduate Studies (SIGS); Mechanical Engineering
    Static and dynamic experiments were conducted to study the failure loads and fracture patterns of human proximal femur bones, that are intact and core drilled. This was done to assist orthopedic surgeons better understand the effects of core drilling into the femoral head to remove osteonecrosis. Unlike pervious studies, where only static tests were conducted, dynamic tests were preformed to better simulate a lateral fall. A Finite Element Analysis (FEA) was also completed to understand stress distributions in the proximal femur when subjected to static and dynamic loads. Previous PEA models of the femur analyzed static loads only with just a core drilled hole at the lesser trochanter. This PEA model examines various sizes of hole diameters and locations on the greater trochanter as well as having the model loaded statically and dynamically.
