ASTM Committee developing bender element testing standard.
ASTM International    West Conshohocken, PA 19428-2959
April 14, 2009 Developed by Subcommittee D18.09 on Cyclic and Dynamic Properties of Soils, proposed standard WK23118 covers type of testing that can aid in predicting soil and foundation response to seismic and manmade disturbances. By performing bender element tests and comparing results to field test results, degree of structure compromise can be determined. Also, determining stiffness by bender elements allows for advanced computer modeling of systems such as foundations and retaining walls.

Quantum Computers will require complex software to manage errors.
National Institute of Standards & Technology    Gaithersburg, MD 20899-1070
April 9, 2009 NIST theorists have shown that type of software operation, proposed as solution to fundamental problems with quantum computers' hardware, will not function as some designers had hoped. NIST team has proved that software in question, widely studied due to its simplicity and robustness to noise, is insufficient for performing arbitrary computations. This means that any software computers use will have to employ more complex and resource-intensive solutions to ensure devices function effectively.
