Ringfort
RINGFORTS, RING FORTS or RING FORTRESSES are circular fortified settlements that were mostly built during the Early Middle Ages
Early Middle Ages
up to about the year 1000. They are found in Northern Europe, especially in Ireland. There are also many in South Wales and in Cornwall

, where they are called ROUNDS. Ringforts come in many sizes and may be made of stone or earth. Earthen ringforts would have been marked by a circular rampart (a bank and ditch), often with a stakewall . Both stone and earthen ringforts would generally have had at least one building inside

Shockwave
In physics, a SHOCK WAVE (also spelled SHOCKWAVE), or SHOCK, is a type of propagating disturbance. When a wave moves faster than the local speed of sound in a fluid , it is a shock wave. Like an ordinary wave, a shock wave carries energy and can propagate through a medium; however, it is characterized by an abrupt, nearly discontinuous change in pressure , temperature and density of the medium. In supersonic flows, expansion is achieved through an expansion fan , also known as a Prandtl-Meyer expansion fan . Unlike solitons (another kind of nonlinear wave), the energy of a shock wave dissipates relatively quickly with distance. Also, the accompanying expansion wave approaches and eventually merges with the shock wave, partially cancelling it out. Thus the sonic boom associated with the passage of a supersonic aircraft is the sound wave resulting from the degradation and merging of the shock wave and the expansion wave produced by the aircraft

Promontory Fort
A PROMONTORY FORT is a defensive structure located above a steep cliff, often only connected to the mainland by a small neck of land, thus utilizing the topography to reduce the ramparts needed. Although their dating is problematic, most seem to date to the Iron Age . They are mainly found in Brittany , Ireland , the Orkney Islands , the Isle of Man , Devon and Cornwall . CONTENTS * 1 Ireland * 2 Isle of Man * 3 Devon "> Entrance to Dunbeg Fort Only a few Irish promontory forts have been excavated and most date to the Iron Age , though some, like Dunbeg ( County Kerry ) might have originated in the Bronze Age . Others, like Dalkey Island (County Dublin ) contain imported Eastern Mediterranean pottery and have been reoccupied and changed in the early medieval period

Ancient History
ANCIENT HISTORY is the aggregate of past events from the beginning of recorded human history and extending as far as the Early Middle Ages or the Postclassical Era . The span of recorded history is roughly 5,000 years, beginning with Sumerian Cuneiform script , the oldest discovered form of coherent writing from the protoliterate period around the 30th century BC. The term classical antiquity is often used to refer to history in the Old World
Old World
from the beginning of recorded Greek history in 776 BC (First Olympiad

). This roughly coincides with the traditional date of the founding of Rome in 753 BC, the beginning of the history of ancient Rome , and the beginning of the Archaic period in Ancient Greece

Reinforced Concrete
REINFORCED CONCRETE (RC) is a composite material in which concrete 's relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility. The reinforcement is usually, though not necessarily, steel reinforcing bars (rebar ) and is usually embedded passively in the concrete before the concrete sets. Reinforcing schemes are generally designed to resist tensile stresses in particular regions of the concrete that might cause unacceptable cracking and/or structural failure. Modern reinforced concrete can contain varied reinforcing materials made of steel, polymers or alternate composite material in conjunction with rebar or not. Reinforced concrete
Reinforced concrete
may also be permanently stressed (in tension), so as to improve the behaviour of the final structure under working loads

Explosion
An EXPLOSION is a rapid increase in volume and release of energy in an extreme manner, usually with the generation of high temperatures and the release of gases . Supersonic
Supersonic
explosions created by high explosives are known as detonations and travel via supersonic shock waves . Subsonic explosions are created by low explosives through a slower burning process known as deflagration . When caused by a human-made device such as an exploding rocket or firework, the audible component of an explosion is referred to as its "report" (which can also be used as a verb, e.g., "the rocket reported loudly upon impact")

Terrorism
TERRORISM, in its broadest sense, describes the use of intentionally indiscriminate violence as a means to create terror or fear , in order to achieve a political, religious or ideological aim. It is used in this regard primarily to refer to violence against peacetime targets or in war against non-combatants . The terms "terrorist" and "terrorism" have been used since the late 18th century, have gained popularity during the U.S. Presidency of Ronald Reagan (1981–89) after the 1983 Beirut barracks bombings and again after the attacks on New York City
New York City
and Washington, D.C. in September 2001 and on Bali in October 2002 . Nevertheless, there is no commonly accepted definition of 'terrorism'. Having the moral charge in our vocabulary of 'something morally wrong', the term 'terrorism' is often being used, both by governments and non-state-groups, to abuse or denounce opposite groups

Industrial Accident
A WORK ACCIDENT, WORKPLACE ACCIDENT, OCCUPATIONAL ACCIDENT, or ACCIDENT AT WORK is a "discrete occurrence in the course of work" leading to physical or mental occupational injury . According to the International Labour Organization
International Labour Organization
(ILO), more than 337 million accidents happen on the job each year, resulting, together with occupational diseases , in more than 2.3 million deaths annually. The phrase "in the course of work" can include work-related accidents happening off the company's premises, and can include accidents caused by third parties, according to Eurostat
Eurostat
. The definition of work accident includes accidents occurring "while engaged in an economic activity, or at work, or carrying on the business of the employer" according to the ILO. The phrase "physical or mental harm" means any injury , disease , or death

Overpressure
OVERPRESSURE (or BLAST OVERPRESSURE) is the pressure caused by a shock wave over and above normal atmospheric pressure . The shock wave may be caused by sonic boom or by explosion , and the resulting overpressure receives particular attention when measuring the effects of nuclear weapons or thermobaric bombs . CONTENTS * 1 Effects of overpressure * 2 Overpressure calculation for an enclosed space * 3 See also * 4 References EFFECTS OF OVERPRESSUREAccording to an article in the journal Toxicological Sciences , "Blast overpressure (BOP), also known as high energy impulse noise, is a damaging outcome of explosive detonations and firing of weapons. Exposure to BOP shock waves alone results in injury predominantly to the hollow organ systems such as auditory, respiratory, and gastrointestinal systems." An EOD suit worn by bomb disposal experts can protect against the deadly effects of BOP
