Chapter 4 Drilling Engineering  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Drilling operations are essentially carried out during all stages of the project life cycle (PLC) and in all types of environments. The main objectives of these operations includes: the acquisition of information and the safeguarding of production. Since the expenditure for drilling represents a large fraction of the total project's capital expenditure, an understanding of the techniques, equipment, and cost of drilling is very significant. This chapter focuses on the drilling activities. The chapter also explores the interactions between the drilling team and the other exploration and production (E&P) functions. Specifically, an initial successful exploration well can establish the presence of a working petroleum system. Following this, the data gathered in the first well is evaluated and the results are documented. The next step includes the appraisal of the accumulation requiring more wells. Finally, if the project is subsequently moved forward, development wells then needs to be engineered.

Chapter 3 Property Law  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This chapter examines the economics of property rights and property law. It shows how the economics of property rights can be used to understand fundamental features of property law and related extra-legal institutions. The chapter examines both the rationale for legal doctrine, and the effects of legal doctrine regarding the exercise, enforcement, and transfer of rights. It also examines various property rights regimes including open access, private ownership, common property, and state property. The guiding questions are: How are property rights established? What explains the variation in the types of property rights? What governs the use and transfer of rights? And, how are property rights enforced? In answering these questions we argue that property rights and property law can be best understood as a system of societal rules designed to maximize social wealth. They do this by creating incentives for people to maintain and invest in assets, which leads to specialization and trade.

Chapter 9 - Brake Testing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter describes and explains the role and methods of experimental testing in the design and verification of brakes and their components. It starts by discussing the increasing capability of computer-based predictive techniques, which can simulate many aspects of brake operation and save time and cost compared with previous methods of experimental evaluation. Preparation, procedures, instrumentation, data acquisition and results analysis, interpretation and reporting for experimental testing ranging from whole vehicle braking performance on a test track to component performance and material thermophysical properties in the laboratory, are explained and discussed. By the end of the chapter the design and operation of test rigs including inertia dynamometers for full-size brakes, scale rigs for small-sample friction and wear measurement, machines for cyclic loading and material property measurement, etc. are described. The importance of careful preparation of the friction pair (bedding-in and burnishing) for brake performance testing and the evaluation of variability by repeat testing is emphasised.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter introduces the concept of light sheet microscopy along with practical advice on how to design and build such an instrument. Selective plane illumination microscopy is presented as an alternative to confocal microscopy due to several superior features such as high-speed full-frame acquisition, minimal phototoxicity, and multiview sample rotation. Based on our experience over the last 10 years, we summarize the key concepts in light sheet microscopy, typical implementations, and successful applications. In particular, sample mounting for long time-lapse imaging and the resulting challenges in data processing are discussed in detail.

Background The mid 1990's was a time of significant change in many areas of procurement, particularly in the introduction of new tools and processes that help the procurement professional better meet the needs of demanding customers. The passage of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act in 1994 and the Federal Acquisition Reform Act in 1995 , coupled with Government-wide and Department of Energy (DOE) contract reform efforts not only changed traditional procurement processes but also changed the role of the procurement professional. No longer are procurement

Chapter 2 - MATLAB Tutorial  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The primary goal of this chapter is to help you to become familiar with the MATLAB software, a powerful tool. It is particularly important to familiarize yourself with the user interface and some basic functionality of MATLAB. To this end, it is worthwhile to at least work through the examples in this chapter (actually type them in and see what happens). Of course, it is even more useful to experiment with the principles discussed in this chapter instead of just sticking to the examples. The chapter is set up in such a way that it affords you time to do this.

Chapter Eleven - Safety Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter begins by discussing basic protection concepts related to design, and it considers the development of a hazard tree for an upstream oil and gas facility. The chapter then builds upon the hazard tree to develop a safe process by incorporating findings from a hazards analysis such as a failure mode effect analysis (FMEA) or \\{HAZards\\} \\{OPerability\\} study (HAZOPs). The chapter describes the effects of hydrocarbon releases and how safety devices prevent major accidents from occurring. It further discusses the requirements of API RP 14C, which is a modified FEMA. API RP 14C requires a minimum of two independent layers of protection. This is accomplished through the use of a surface safety system and an emergency support system. The elements of a process safety management system are discussed in detail. The chapter ends by covering all aspects of relief devices and then incorporating them into a relief, vent, or flare system.

Impact evaluation for the Manufactured Housing Acquisition Program: Technical appendix  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This document supplements the Manufactured Housing Acquisition Program (MAP) impact evaluation report, Lee et al. (1995). MAP is a voluntary energy-efficiency program for HUD-code manufactured homes conducted in the Pacific Northwest beginning in April 1992. Pacific Northwest Laboratory (PNL) prepared this and the impact evaluation reports for the Bonneville Power Administration (Bonneville). Lee et al. (1995) presents the objectives, methodology, and findings of the program evaluation. This report presents more details about specific aspects of the analysis. The authors used a three-tier approach to analyze the energy consumption of MAP and baseline homes. Chapter 2 discusses Tier 1, the billing data and simplified regression analysis. Chapter 3 presents the details of the Tier 2 analysis, the PRInceton Scorekeeping Method (PRISM). Chapter 4 presents details of the primary analysis technique that they used, a comprehensive regression analysis. Chapter 5 and 6 review two other studies of energy savings associated with MAP. Chapter 5 discusses the simulation model analysis conducted by Ecotope, Inc. Chapter 6 reviews the analysis by Regional Economic Research conducted for three Pacific Northwest investor-owned utilities. The final chapter, Chapter 7, presents details of the Bonneville levelized cost methodology used to estimate the cost of energy savings associated with MAP. Results are presented and discussed in many cases for the three different climate zones found in the Pacific Northwest. 18 refs., 29 tabs.

These defects can arise at data extraction, data receipt, and at data load into the teams Data Manipulation Environment (DME). You will learn about the five ways in which data can be tested in Guerrilla Analytics. These are (1) completeness, (2) correctness, (3) consistency, (4) coherence, and (5) accountability. This chapter will also describe some tips for successful data testing including scopes of tests, storage of test results, common test routines, and automation of testing.

Chapter Seven - Dehydration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter begins by discussing the major reasons for removing water from natural gas. The two most common methods for removing water from the gas are adsorption (solid desiccant) and absorption (liquid desiccant such as glycol). A third method, refrigeration (cooling the gas), employs cooling to condense the water molecules to the liquid phase, with subsequent injection of an inhibiter to prevent hydrate formation. The chapter details the design of the adsorption and absorption processes. It also considers the design and selection of equipment for each process, and it ends with an example of sizing equipment for a glycol dehydration system and a solid-bed desiccant unit.

Despite remarkable growth in the number of minivans and sport-utility vehicles, passenger cars continued to predominate in the residential vehicle fleet. This chapter looks at changes in the composition of the residential fleet in 1994 compared with earlier years and reviews the effect of technological changes on fuel efficiency (how efficiently a vehicle engine processes motor fuel) and fuel economy (how far a vehicle travels on a given amount of fuel). Using data unique to the Residential Transportation Energy Consumption Survey, it also explores the relationship between residential vehicle use and family income.

Chapter 14 - Ethics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The SarbanesOxley Act of 2002 specifies that corporations must publish a code of ethics for their senior officers, or disclose their reason for not having one. As in business, ethics are important in cyber warfare too. However, cyber operations do not have all of the same attributes that traditional warfare does. Therefore, when considering activities that might be classified as cyber warfare, it is important to realize that things that are clear in conventional warfaredetermining whether an attack is taking place, who is attacking, who is being attacked, and consequences of an attackmay not be as they seem. With this in mind, this chapter covers ethics surrounding cyber warfare. Besides discussing the potential for cyber attacks to be misattributed, the chapter covers secrecy in attacks, noncombatant immunity, use of force, mistaking a technical problem for an attack, intent behind an attack, and collateral damage resulting from an attack.

Chapter 18 - Tanks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter describes the tank's vapor formation rate. When sizing the vapor piping for a manifold expansion roof tank system, the rate of vapor formation must be known. While the rate of vapor formation can be computed by longhand methods, the calculation is tedious and takes much valuable time. The chapter also explains the hand-held calculator program that simplifies dike computations. Earthen dikes are widely used all over the world to contain flammable volumes of above-ground storage. They perform two vital functions: to prevent loss of fluid into the environment and to reduce the likelihood of fire spreading from one tank to another. Sizing dikes by conventional methods is a time-consuming, trial-and-error process. A complete assessment of the problem involves: applicable codes and regulations; land area available; topography of the area; soil characteristics; and the stipulated volume contained by dike and other dimensions of the dike section.

Chapter XII Stochastic Searching  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Research has produced automatic methods of establishing lists and patterns of keywords through statistical procedures performed by data processing machines on the original text of documents. This chapter discusses some of the developments, in this connection that constitute the current state of the art. To document the usage of stochastic processes and data sampling concepts in information retrieval, it suffices to consider that, in the real world, too, communication of data by way of words is largely carried out on a probabilistic basis. In talking or writing, man speculates that, by using certain words, he or she will be able to produce, in the mind of the receptor, a picture of the concept or datum he or she wishes to convey. This datum may be a transmittal from somebody else or it may be a newly originated document that resulted from an actual experience or a process of thought. The chapter evaluates stochastic searching and provides machine records and the upkeep of a dictionary. The sophistication of the document and the over-all effort has been discussed in the chapter.

Data acquisition system  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A data acquisition circuit for a particle detection system that allows for time tagging of particles detected by the system. The particle detection system screens out background noise and discriminate between hits from scattered and unscattered particles. The detection system can also be adapted to detect a wide variety of particle types. The detection system utilizes a particle detection pixel array, each pixel containing a back-biased PIN diode, and a data acquisition pixel array. Each pixel in the particle detection pixel array is in electrical contact with a pixel in the data acquisition pixel array. In response to a particle hit, the affected PIN diodes generate a current, which is detected by the corresponding data acquisition pixels. This current is integrated to produce a voltage across a capacitor, the voltage being related to the amount of energy deposited in the pixel by the particle. The current is also used to trigger a read of the pixel hit by the particle.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Textiles are nearly 100% recyclable, yet for a variety of reasons many textiles end up in the landfill. In recent years, special attention to value-added products made from recycled textile materials is on the rise as consumers, policy makers, engineers and industry experts focus on environmental stewardship, strategic partnerships and holistic approaches that contribute significantly to the recycling process. This chapter describes the recycling process and the various categories that are considered as recycling companies manage the plethora of textiles that enter the recycling stream. By recycling textiles, the punitive costs of landfill are avoided. In addition, the recycling process contributes significantly to employment, charitable contributions and positive environmental impact.

Chapter 5 - Gasification Processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary There is a broad range of reactor types that are used in the practical realization of the gasification process. For most purposes, these reactor types can be grouped into one of three categories: moving-bed gasifiers, fluid-bed gasifiers, and entrained-flow gasifiers. Moving-bed processes are the oldest processes, and two processes in particular, the producer gas process and the water gas process, have played an important role in the production of synthesis gas from coal and coke. In moving bed processes, there are the sasol-lurgi dry bottom process, British Gas/Lurgi (BGL) slagging gasifier, that are detailed in the chapter along with their applications. Following this, fluid-bed processes are discussed in which the blast has two functions: that of blast as a reactant and that of the fluidizing medium for the bed. The best known fluid-bed gasifiers that have no tar problem are regenerators of catalytic cracking units that often operate under reducing, that is, gasification conditions that can be found in many refineries. HRL process, BHEL gasifier, circulating fluidized-bed (CFB) processes, the KBR transport gasifier, agglomerating fluid-bed processes, the Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne (PWR) gasifier, the GEE gasification process, the Shell Gasification Process (SGP), Lurgi s Multi-Purpose Gasification process (MPG), etc. are the various processes discussed in the chapter.

Chapter 33 - Brain Embolism  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents a discussion on the clinical findings of the brain embolism and cerebrovascular disorders. Brain embolism occurs when material, usually a thrombus, formed or introduced in one part of the vascular system travels to an artery that supplies brain tissue. There are three main componentsthe recipient artery that receives the material, the embolic material itself, and the donor source where the material originated. Donor sources include the heart, the aorta, and the neck arteries and their intracranial arterial branches proximal to the recipient artery. The most common cardiac sources are atrial fibrillation and other atrial arrythmias, myocardial ischemic pathology, and valvular heart diseases. However, less common cardiac pathologies such as myocardiopathies, cardiac tumors, and septal defects within the heart can also lead to brain embolism. The most common disease of arteries that leads to embolism is atherosclerosis. Materials from plaques and thrombi form within arteries in the neck and proximal intracranial arteries and embolize distally. Occasionally tumor particles, fat, and air and foreign particles introduced into veins or arteries embolize to the brain. The discussion on diagnosis includes recipient artery-related finding and donor sources. The chapter discusses treatment of the acute event of brain embolism and states that the goals of treatment of the acute ischemic event are minimization of brain ischemic injury and reperfusion whenever possible.

Chapter 1. Overview of the DOE Project Chapter 1. Overview of the DOE Project Introduction On April 10, 1945, medical staff of the U.S. Manhattan Engineer District in Oak Ridge, TN, injected plutonium into the victim of a car accident. American scientists had only recently begun producing plutonium, and thousands of workers were laboring to produce the quantities required for the first atomic bombs. While aware that plutonium was hazardous, project officials were uncertain how much exposure would cause harm. Desire for information about human metabolism and retention of plutonium led to this first injection in Oak Ridge. Over the next 2 years, 17 other people also received plutonium injections. The Manhattan Project and its postwar successor, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC), also carried out human experiments with uranium, polonium, americium, and other radioactive substances. Radiation tests continued after the war; some of these studies took place under AEC supervision and had direct defense-related applications. The agency also sponsored substantial programs in the medical applications of radiation and in basic biomedical research. In addition, independent physicians and researchers at universities and hospitals conducted many postwar human radiation studies to develop the techniques of present-day nuclear medicine.

Chapter 6 - Eastern Europe  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the library and information systems of four Eastern European countries. In a survey described in the chapter, four libraries in Eastern Europe returned the questionnaires on the role of national libraries in national and international information systems: (1) Bulgaria, (2) the Czech Socialist Republic, (3) Hungary, and (4) Poland. The USSR was regularly present at the meetings of the Conference and made contributions to the discussions but did not return replies to the questionnaires. As in the case of the British Library, answers were given to the questions from personal experience. A study of the Soviet Library system appeared in 1972 under the title Libraries, Documentation and Bibliography in the USSR, which, despite its inadequacies, is the only survey in English of the Russian library and information system as a whole. The influence of the Lenin Library as a library planning center is very strong throughout Eastern Europe, while the Council of Mutual Economic Assistance has strongly influenced the structure and services in the field of scientific and technical information.

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

2. Narratives and Records Series Descriptions 2. Narratives and Records Series Descriptions Introduction This chapter contains two kinds of information. The first consists of brief narrative histories that discuss the involvement of the Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessor agencies with human radiation experiments. These histories cover agency headquarters elements and the various field sites that had significant involvement in experiment activities. The second category of information is series descriptions for groups of original records that are pertinent to either individual experiments or to the organizational context in which they took place. Since many of these records still reside at DOE sites, series descriptions are appended to the narrative for each facility. Where records are not in the custody of DOE, they are listed under their custodial organization (such as the National Archives).

Chapter 17 - Sustainability Analysis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Sustainability analysis plays a key strategic role in industry, and most chemical companies consider nowadays that sustainability is a strategic business success factor, realizing that what is good for the environment and society can be also good for the financial performance of the company. This chapter provides an overview of the available methods that can translate sustainability requirements into working targets. The most used interpretation of sustainable development is the three pillars dividing sustainability into economic growth, ecological balance, and social progress. Although there is no universal approach, there are several methods that can be used in the move towards a more sustainable development and design of chemical products and processes. In this context, several valuable tools are presented: the life cycle assessment, eco-costs value ratio, eco-efficiency analysis, socio-eco-efficiency analysis, and the \\{AIChE\\} sustainability index. The last section presents a procedure for incorporating sustainability metrics in a process design project.

CHAPTER XV - TIME SERIES  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter provides an overview of time series. A time series is a set of observations of a variable made at different points of time and arranged in chronological order, each observation representing the value of the variable either at a given moment or during the interval of time between this observation and the preceding one. In general, the observations forming a time-series as made at equidistant intervals of time are considered. The factors affecting time-series may be recurring or nonrecurring, or evolutionary, periodic, or random. The method of moving averages consists in determining the average value for a certain number of terms of a time series and taking this average as the trend normal value for the middle of the period covered in the calculation of the average, that is, the period extent of the moving average.

Chapter 3 - Offshore Platforms  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Modern offshore crude oil and natural gas explorationthe search for likely environments where crude oil and natural gas may exist in the rock formations that are beneath the surface of the waterways of the world. In addition, offshore operations include transporting crude oil and natural gas from their point of production offshore to refineries and plants on land. Very little refining of the crude oil and natural gas is carried out on the production platform. This chapter focuses on exploration, drilling, and production of crude oil and natural gas and the wide range of technologies involved as well as the additional technologies that relate to a marine environment necessary for offshore activities.

Chapter 33 - Grand Challenges  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter looks to the future of air quality and how the lessons learned in recent decades can be applied to new problems. The challenges include finding ways to prevent emerging economies from repeating the air pollution mistakes and harm that developed nations have experienced in arriving at solutions to air pollution problems. Other challenges include: global problems, such as long-range transport of pollutants, climate change; real-world-exposures (including indoor air pollution); improvements in technologies to remove difficult-to-treat pollutants; and addressing the growing number of mobile sources. This will require more systems thinking and sustainable, transdisciplinary solutions. The legacy of the current cadre of air pollution experts must be one of translational science and the enhancement of early air pollution education for the next generation.

Chapter 9 - Pipeline Insulation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Oilfield pipelines are insulated mainly to conserve heat. The need to keep the product in the pipeline at a temperature higher than the ambient could exist for the following reasons: preventing the formation of gas hydrates, preventing the formation of wax or asphaltenes, enhancing the product flow properties, increasing the cooldown time after shutting down, and meeting other operational/process equipment requirements. On the other hand, in liquefied gas pipelines, such as LNG, insulation is required to maintain the cold temperature of the gas to keep it in a liquid state. This chapter describes the commonly used insulation materials, insulation finish on pipes, and general requirements for insulation of offshore and deepwater pipelines.

Chapter 14 - Glass Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Glass has established itself as an essential material in our lives. The composition of glass depends on what it is used for, but the majority of glass in circulation is of the soda-limesilicate type. It is a material that is eminently recyclable, in the sense that it merely needs to be remelted and reformed to produce another glass article. However, glass must be color-sorted and processed to remove contaminants to ensure it is compatible with the product being manufactured. The key benefit of recycling via remelting is the reduced energy demand. However, because differences in color composition can arise between recovered glass and manufacturing output, alternative outlets are also often necessary. This chapter examines both the recycling of glass back into glass manufacture and these alternatives.

Chapter 7 - Copper Recycling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter gives a brief overview of copper recycling from a metallurgist's view. As it is deemed impossible to give an in-depth presentation of such a broad and complex subject, a selection of references is given for further reading. Secondary sources of copper include a large variety of raw materials, ranging from slags, sludge and low-grade copper scrap, containing only a few percent Cu up to very high-grade copper as well as pure copper close to 100% Cu. Thus there are several options for recycling processes, within both primary and secondary plants. Although there are good recycling rates for copper, some challenges can be foreseen such as a scarcity of pure and high-grade scrap and an increased amount of products containing a mixture of materials and with low copper concentrations.

Chapter 27 - Nuclear weapons  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter faces the realization that the same atoms that can produce life-saving electricity can also be used to construct weapons of mass destruction. Some facilities, such as enrichment and reprocessing, in the nuclear fuel cycle can also serve dual uses when considering proliferation. The original atomic bombs were constructed of highly enriched uranium and high-grade plutonium, but their development led to thermonuclear devices with much larger yields. Thus far, nuclear war has been avoided by policies such as mutual assured destruction and international agreements such as the Non-Proliferation Treaty. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) is charged with performing worldwide nuclear material safeguards inspections. The legacy of the nuclear weapons arms race has left considerable weapons-grade materials that must be dealt with.

Chapter 15 - Measurement  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with the multiphase flow meter. The major parts of the TopFlow meter are the Venturi insert and the electrodes inside the Venturi throat. The flow rates of oil, water, and gas are calculated based on the measurements performed by the electrodes and the measurement of the differential pressure across the Venturi inlet. The TopFlow meter utilizes a capacitance sensor for oil-continuous liquid mixtures, where the capacitance caused by the dielectric constant of the fluid mixture is measured in the throat of the Venturi. Similarly, it utilizes a four-electrode conductance sensor for water-continuous liquid mixtures, where the conductance is caused by the conductivity of the fluid mixture. All the necessary electrodes are incorporated within a Venturi that is somewhat modified. Advanced data processing is utilized to have continuous readings of the flow rates of oil, water, and gas.

Chapter 11 - Sulfur Recovery  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Sulfur is present in many raw industrial gases and in natural gas in the form of hydrogen sulfide. Sulfur removal facilities are located at the majority of oil and gas processing facilities throughout the world. The sulfur recovery unit does not make a profit for the operator but it is an essential processing step to allow the overall facility to operate, as the discharge of sulfur compounds to the atmosphere is severely restricted by environmental regulations. Concentration levels of H2S vary significantly depending upon their source. H2S produced from absorption processes, such as amine treating of natural gas or refinery gas, can contain 5075% H2S by volume or higher. This chapter provides information about fundamentals of sulfur removal facilities in the natural gas industry.

Chapter 1. Introduction  

U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Indexed Site

1. Introduction 1. Introduction Chapter 1. Introduction Household Vehicles Energy Consumption 1994 reports on the results of the 1994 Residential Transportation Energy Consumption Survey (RTECS). The RTECS is a national sample survey that has been conducted every 3 years since 1985. For the 1994 survey, more than 3,000 households that own or use some 6,000 vehicles provided information to describe vehicle stock, vehicle-miles traveled, energy end-use consumption, and energy expenditures for personal vehicles. The survey results represent the characteristics of the 84.9 million households that used or had access to vehicles in 1994 nationwide. (An additional 12 million households neither owned nor had access to vehicles during the survey year.) To be included in the RTECS survey, vehicles must be either owned or used by household members on a regular basis for personal transportation, or owned by a company rather than a household, but kept at home, regularly available for the use of household members. Most vehicles included in the RTECS are classified as "light- duty vehicles" (weighing less than 8,500 pounds). However, the RTECS also includes a very small number of "other" vehicles, such as motor homes and larger trucks that are available for personal use.

Chapter 17 - Nuclear Fusion  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Nuclear fusion, the joining of light nuclei of hydrogen into heavier nuclei of helium, has potential environmental, safety and proliferation characteristics as an energy source, as well as adequate fuel to power civilization for times long compared to human history. It is, however, more challenging to convert to an energy source than nuclear fission. This chapter introduces the physics, advantages, difficulties, progress, economics and prospects for fusion energy power plants. Nuclear fusion is the process, in which light nuclei can release large amounts of energy if they combine, or fuse, into heavier nuclei. The principal nuclear reactions which have been considered for reactor concepts involve reactions of isotopes of the two lightest elements: hydrogen and helium. The fuel costs for fusion reactors will be negligible in comparison with the value of the electricity produced. It is difficult to precisely assess the cost of fusion-generated electricity until there is experience with an operating power plant, since the cost will be dependent upon the reliability and the frequency and expense of maintenance, both of which are likely to improve with the hindsight of experience. A fusion reactor does not directly emit CO2 or other greenhouse gases, or any combustion products that contribute to acid rain, and the indirect emissions due to factors like fuel gathering and transport, plant construction and maintenance, and activated parts storage would be small. Thus, fusion power would not have appreciable adverse effects upon global warming, atmospheric quality or acidification of the oceans, lakes and streams.

Chapter 2 - Energy Sources  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In todays industrialized world, energy became vital to all human activities including manufacturing, data processing, heating, cooling, lighting, transportation, food processing, etc., yet it is invisible for most of us. Todays energy generation technologies are undergoing a paradigm shift; the solution to our current dilemma requires more renewable contribution as well as the more efficient utilization of conventional energy sources. Recognizing this importance, this chapter focuses on energy sources and energy generation technologies including, coal, hydroelectric, nuclear, solar, wind, ocean, and several others. Alternative energy technologies received great interest in recent years due to environmental impact, greenhouse gas emissions, national energy security, and increasing cost of fossil fuel-based sources. With particular emphasis on renewable and alternative energy systems, characteristic features of the renewable energy sources have been reviewed. Since power electronics is a key enabling technology for renewable energy utilization, power electronic converters and interfaces that are used for grid interconnection and stand-alone operation have been presented.

Chapter 1 - LNG Fundamentals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Natural gas has remained the fastest growing energy resource in most regions of the world for more than two decades, driven by the low greenhouse gas emissions as well as high conversion efficiency in power generation. For almost a century, natural gas has been transported safely, reliably, and economically via pipeline. However, for the past decades it has become clear that significant quantities of new gas reserves are not so conveniently located. Attention has shifted to more isolated large gas reservoirs that were previously thought to be too remote, or technically too difficult and costly to develop. A number of solutions for exploiting stranded gas reserves are currently being developed and considered for commercialization. On the other hand, over the past three decades, only the liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry has successfully brought many large remote gas fields to the gas markets that are unreachable by pipeline (e.g., Japan, South Korea). This chapter briefly summarizes the components of the LNG supply chainthe steps and industrial processes used in producing, storing, and delivering LNG to commercial and residential customers.

Chapter 4 Scouring  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents a purifying treatment of textiles to reduce the amount of natural impurities sufficiently to enable level and reproducible dyeings and finishing to be produced. Specialty chemicals have very high value in the chemical processing of textiles and the applications of chemical auxiliaries are included in the relevant processes. Scouring is a purifying treatment of textiles. The objective of scouring is to reduce the amount of impurities sufficiently to obtain level and reproducible results in dyeing and finishing operations. Scouring agents can be generally classified into different groups. The appropriate type of scouring agent generally depends on the kind of fiber; fabric typethat is, woven or knitted, thick or thin; texturised or non-texturised and the extent of impurities present in the fibre. The selection of alkali is most important as free alkali can have a deleterious effect on certain fibersfor example, wool and silk are dissolved by alkali, whereas acetate and triacetate are converted back to their original cellulose form and cotton fiber absorbs alkali. Alkali neutralizes the carboxyl group in cellulose and in pectin. The hydroxyl groups on the glucose units in cellulose are also weakly acidic.

Chapter 10 - Dissecting Hacks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary It is essential that every Solaris administrator understand the risks posed to a Solaris system by errors in configuration as well as programming. Understanding Solaris' weaknesses as well as its strengths makes a Solaris system defending against easier hacking attempts. The chapter covers some of the more common hacks and exploits used against Solaris systems. These exploits include denial of service (DOS) attacks, either to bring the system down or simply make it unavailable for legitimate users, and buffer overflows to gain remote access or elevated privilegesusually root. Other attacks can include IP spoofing, MAC address spoofing, rootkits, connection hijacking, and logic bombs. With system and network administrators struggling to keep up with user requests and other demands, security is usually the first item to be dropped. Attackers rely on this fact. By understanding how exploits work under Solaris and how exploits affect the Solaris operating environment, the Solaris system administrator is better prepared to eliminate or mitigate the effects of these threats.

Chapter 3 - Substation Layouts  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Substations are the points in the power network, where transmission lines and distribution feeders are connected together through circuit breakers or switches via busbars and transformers. This allows for the control of power flows in the network and general switching operations for maintenance purposes. This chapter describes the principal substation layouts, the effects of advancements in substation equipment, the modular design, the compact substations, and the moves toward design and construction turnkey contract work. The descriptions concentrate on air insulated switchgear (AIS) outdoor open terminal designs at rated voltages of 72 kV and higher. In an ideal situation all circuits and substation equipment would be duplicated such that following a fault or during maintenance a connection remains available. This would involve very high cost. Methods have therefore been adopted to achieve a compromise between complete security of supply and capital investment. A measure of circuit duplication is adopted while recognizing that duplication may itself reduce the security of supply by, for example, providing additional leakage paths to earth.

Chapter 12 - Swimming Pools  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses water conservation opportunities for swimming pools. Swimming pool water is an expensive commodity given the fact that a large body of water needs to be continually pumped, treated, filtered and backwashed and then heated to temperatures. Councils, leisure and fitness centers, hotels and most motels all have swimming pools. In indoor pools the air needs to be ventilated. For this reason swimming pools consume two to three as much energy as an air-conditioned office building per square area. The typical average energy use in sports centers with pools and dry sports centers are shown. It becomes evident the energy consumption of swimming pools is two to three times per square meter. Twenty-five per cent of the energy is used to heat pools to maintain these temperatures and another 53% of energy is used for space heating in indoor pools. The typical breakdown of water usage in large public swimming pools which show, retrofitting showerheads and minimizing leakage will have a significant effect on reducing water use. Data indicates that 33% of the water usage can be reduced by instituting good management practices. Water conservation opportunities for swimming pools consist of: reducing leakage, installing water-efficient taps, showerheads and toilets, reducing backwash frequency and time and reducing pool evaporation.

Chapter 6 - Impersonation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the use of impersonation to conduct the email attacks. Impersonation means pretending to be someone that is known to the victim in one degree or another. The use of impersonation in a professional penetration test may appear to be a simple thingassume a disguise and play a role. For most pentest projects, this may be true. However, if one needs to avoid detection at all costs, impersonation becomes a much more complicated endeavor. To conduct an attack using pretexting, one need to make sure that the disguise is perfect and that the knowledge, language, understanding of geography, and understanding of human psychology is exceptional for the task at hand. If one doesn't want to go through the effort to create a physical disguise, one can choose to perform e-mail attacks using our spear phishing skills to gain information necessary to access the corporate systems of the target organization. The problem with the use of a phishing attack is that one cannot always be assured that they will have access to a server within the target corporation's network in which to conduct the attack.

Chapter 9 - Hydraulic Pumps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter provides an overview of hydraulic-powered downhole pumps, which are powered by a stream of high pressure power fluid supplied by a power fluid (PF) pump at the surface and sent to a downhole pump or pump engine. Hydraulic pumps are basically of two typespiston downhole pumps that are similar to beam down-hole pumps, and jet downhole pumps that reduce the pressure on the formation by high-speed power fluid flow through the throat of a venturi or jet pump nozzle-diffuser combination. Hydraulic pumps can be used to remove liquids from gas wells. A skid-mounted hydraulic pump can be used to kick off a gas well and then be moved to another well for testing, production, or longer term de-watering. Hydraulic pumping is generally not depth limited, and deviated or crooked wells do not present problems. Hydraulic reciprocating pumps can produce a low bottomhole pressure. A jet pump may require a fluid height over the pump of 20% of submergence. A jet pump is more trouble-free than a reciprocating hydraulic pump and can tolerate some solids in the production. Fairly high rates of more than several hundred bbls/day are possible. In general, hydraulic systems are not rate limited when removing liquids from gas wells.

Chapter 9 - Hydraulic pumping  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary The hydraulic pumping system takes liquid (water or oil) from a liquid reservoir on the surface, puts it through a reciprocating multiplex piston pump or horizontal electrical submersible pump to increase the pressure, and then injects the pressurized liquid (power fluid) down-hole through a tubing string. At the bottom of the injection tubing string, the power fluid is directed into the nozzle of a jet pump or to the hydraulic engine of a piston pump, both of which have been set well below the producing fluid level. The surface injection pressures normally range from approximately 2000 psi up to 4000 psi, with some going up to but rarely above 4500 psi. An electric motor, diesel engine, or gas engine is used to drive the multiplex pump. The fundamental operating principle of subsurface hydraulic pumps is Pascal's Law, postulated by Blaise Pascal in 1653. This principle makes it possible to transmit pressure from the surface by means of a liquid-filled tubing string to any given point below the surface. The chapter further highlights applications to dewatering wells-gas and coal bed methane, limitations of other forms of lift, advantages of hydraulic pumping, disadvantages of hydraulic pumping, and different types of operating systems.

Chapter 6 - Compression  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Compression is crucial to all gas well production as it is the primary means to transport gas to market. Compression is also vital to deliquification, lowering wellhead pressure, and increasing gas velocity. The lower bottom hole producing pressure from deliquifying wells and lowering surface pressures with compression can result in substantial production and reserves increases. Compressing associated gas in oil wells is often seen as a simple rate acceleration project that seldom has good economics. Compression and reduced surface pressure is usually the first tool used in the life of a gas well to keep it deliquified and sometimes the only artificial lift method used, but compression can also be used to increase the effectiveness of other artificial lift deliquification methods including foamers, gas lift, beam pumping, ESPs, and velocity strings. There are many different types of compressors, each of which has its own operating ranges, efficiencies, strengths, and weaknesses. A majority of the applications for gas well deliquification involve the use of reciprocating or screw compressors. In addition, the study discusses compression horsepower and critical velocity; compression horsepower is related to the ratio of the discharge and suction pressures in psia commonly known as the compression ratio. Along with this, the effect of permeability on compression, pressure drop in compression suction, downstream gathering, and compression's effect on uplift from deliquifying individual gas wells are briefly discussed in this chapter.

Chapter 20: Graphite  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Graphite is truly a unique material. Its structure, from the nano- to the millimeter scale give it remarkable properties that lead to numerous and diverse applications. Graphite bond anisotropy, with strong in-plane covalent bonds and weak van der Waals type bonding between the planes, gives graphite its unique combination of properties. Easy shear of the crystal, facilitated by weak interplaner bonds allows graphite to be used as a dry lubricant, and is responsible for the substances name! The word graphite is derived from the Greek to write because of graphites ability to mark writing surfaces. Moreover, synthetic graphite contains within its structure, porosity spanning many orders of magnitude in size. The thermal closure of these pores profoundly affects the properties for example, graphite strength increases with temperature to temperatures in excess of 2200 C. Consequently, graphite is utilized in many high temperature applications. The basic physical properties of graphite are reviewed here. Graphite applications include metallurgical; (aluminum and steel production), single crystal silicon production, and metal casting; electrical (motor brushes and commutators); mechanical (seals, bearings and bushings); and nuclear applications, (see Chapter 91, Nuclear Graphite). Here we discuss the structure, manufacture, properties, and applications of Graphite.

Chapter 6 - Ecosystem Services  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Forested ecosystems have always provided a large suite of services that benefit human civilizations, animals, plants, and other organisms living within the Earths biosphere. As suggested in earlier chapters, forested ecosystems generate numerous provisioning, regulating, supporting, and cultural services. These services provide the basic building blocks of life on Earth and for human civilizations. Unfortunately, at times humans neither understand nor appreciate the regulating or supporting functions provided by ecosystems. Maintaining the health and well-being of our forested ecosystems can improve human health concerns and protect our homes from unexpected events such as floods and wildfires. Many also argue that healthy ecosystems are the foundation upon which we can build a secure future for our children and grandchildren. Managers of forests and natural resources will undoubtedly face trade-offs among ecosystem services when considering their actions. Even deciding to do nothing at all will involve the analysis of trade-offs, since some of the services provided by ecosystems include the food, shelter, and materials we may use in our normal, daily lives.

Chapter 1 Introduction  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter introduces refining. Catalytic processes form the majority of unit operations in the oil industry. Catalysis, therefore, becomes a significant factor in the economic viability and, nowadays, a strong factor in the environmental viability of the industry. Catalyst development and understanding is essential to the majority of refining and petrochemical advances. New technical improvements and breakthroughs depend on catalysis and are expected to come through a molecular-level understanding of the processes. The oil industry would need continued catalysis support to change its product portfolio with environment-friendly technologies. The market pattern for oil refining products is evolving and will continue to do so in the future. The trend is toward lighter and cleaner products. The demand for fuel oil and residuals is decreasing consistently, but the consumption of lighter fuels is increasing. In the long term, the residuals market would disappear. The resemblance of a refinery would then be closer to a chemical plant, rather than the landscape exhibited these days. In a contraposition, the market share of the heavy and extra heavy oils might have increased because of the decline of the light and median reserves. In fact, an increase on heavier feedstocks has already begun and will be a constant factor in the future. Introduction of new, non-oil derived fuels will impact the oil-derived market share. Also, if gasoline uses remains where it is or increases, the specifications are bound to be severe. Speciation, well known in biology, will be a fact in the fuel business.

Chapter 12 - Geothermal Energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses where the earth's thermal energy is sufficiently concentrated for economic use, the various types of geothermal systems, the production and utilization of the resource, and the environmental benefits and costs of geothermal production. Earth scientists quantify the energy and temperature in the earth in terms of heat flow and temperature gradient. The heat of the earth is derived from two components: the heat generated by the formation of the earth, and heat generated by radioactive decay of elements in the upper parts of the earth. The word geothermal comes from the combination of the Greek words go, meaning earth, and thrm, meaning heat. Geothermal resources are concentrations of the earth's heat, or geothermal energy, that can be extracted and used economically now or in the reasonable future. The earth contains an immense amount of heat but the heat generally is too diffuse or deep for economic use. Hence, the search for geothermal resources focuses on those areas of the earth's crust where geological processes have raised temperatures near enough to the surface that the heat contained can be utilized. Currently, only concentrations of heat associated with water in permeable rocks can be exploited economically. These systems are known as hydrothermal geothermal systems. All commercial geothermal production is currently restricted to geothermal systems that are sufficiently hot for the use and that contain a reservoir with sufficient available water and productivity for economic development. Geothermal energy is one of the cleaner forms of energy now available in commercial quantities. Use of geothermal energy avoids the problems of acid rain and greatly reduces greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of air pollution.

These can be security testing, consumer advocacy and civil rights, military interests, and hacking politics. This chapter introduces the techniques used to hack. Hacking basically means bypassing security measures on computer systems and networks. The word hack can also be used to describe a clever or quick program. There are certain laws that govern how security works. This chapter briefly introduces these laws and how they can be applied to hacking techniques. It also introduces various types of attacks and how serious the potential damage is, and provides examples of each type; the various methodologies that one might employ to discover security problems. Various hacking technique includediffingwhich is comparing code before and after some action has taken place, cryptography and the various means that exist for keeping information hidden or private, sniffing or monitoring of network communications for hacking purposes. This chapter introduces such techniques, security problems, tunneling mechanisms, viruses, and reporting security problems.

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the primary considerations that the design engineer should bear in mind during the initial design and subsequent structural analysis. The designer is faced with a large number of rules, codes, standards, and specifications describing the general policy for structural systems and the detailed design of structural components, which includes government requirements, certification/classification authorities, and other technical documents. The notation Structures refers to all types of marine units ranging from floating ship-shaped vessels to bottom founded platforms. Emphasis has been placed on ship-shaped structures. Consideration is also given to column-supported structures, e.g., semi-submersibles, tension leg platforms, spars, and mooring buoys, etc., and also to steel bottom founded offshore structures, such as fixed steel jackets. The main output of the planning process is a Design Basis, describing the criteria and a Design Brief, describing the procedure to be followed and software to be used. This chapter discusses the finite element method, which is a powerful computational tool that has been widely used in the design of complex marine structures over the decades. This chapter gives a general overview for the design of marine structures using a finite element modeling technique. It also addresses structural modeling defined by industry codes for fixed platforms and floating production installations. Throughout this chapter, emphasis is placed on the design process where the finite element analysis will be employed.

"Data Acquisition Systems"  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This project involved support for Lou Costrell and myself in the development of IEEE and IEC standards for nuclear counting and data acquisition systems. Over the years, as a result of this support, Lou and I were able to attend standards meetings of IEEE and IEC, which led directly to the publication of many standards for NIM systems, FastBus and CAMAC. We also chaired several writing committees as well as ANSI N42 (Nuclear instrumentation), IEEE NIM (NIM standard), IEEE NID (NPSS nuclear instruments and detector) and IEC TC45 WG9 (Nuclear instrumentation). Through this support we were able to assure that the interests of the US and DOE were expressed and implemented in the various standards.

Chapter 11 - Google Hacking Showcase  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter deals with the Google hacking showcase. As quoted by the founder of the Google hacking database, this chapter states that Google searches can reveal medical, financial, proprietary and even classified information. Despite government edicts, regulation and protection acts like HIPPA and the constant barking of security watchdogs, this problem still persists. Stuff still makes it out onto the web, and Google hackers access it at their disposal. It takes a look at some technical discoveries uncovered by Google hackers. It begins by various utilities that really have no business being online, unless of course one's goal is to aid hackers. Following this, it considers open network devices and open applications, neither of which requires any real hacking to gain access to. Through various examples, it describes what can go drastically wrong when the Google hacking threat is ignored, thus emphasizing the importance of knowledge of understanding of Google hacking, and online security measures.

Chapter 10 - Natural Gas Sweetening  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Acid gas constituents present in most natural gas streams are mainly hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and carbon dioxide (CO2). Many gas streams, however, particularly those in a refinery or manufactured gases, may contain mercaptans, carbon sulfide, or carbonyl sulfide. The level of acid gas concentration in the sour gas is an important consideration for selecting the proper sweetening process. Some processes are applicable for removal of large quantities of acid gas, and other processes have the capacity for removing acid gas constituents to ppm range. This chapter covers the minimum process requirements, criteria, and features for accomplishment of process design of gas sweetening units. The basic principles for process design of main equipment, piping, and instrumentation together with guidelines on present developments and process selection in the gas sweetening process are the main objectives throughout this chapter.

Chapter 11 - Computer Network Defense  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Computer Network Defense is the defensive and largely proactive component of Computer Network Operations, and is one of the few places where military and civilian approaches are similar. But how does Computer Network Defense fit into the category of defensive actions? To answer this question, one must understand what is being defended. This chapter explains what type of information should be protected from cyber attacks and highlights the key principles of securitynamely, the CIA triad of confidentiality, integrity, and availability, and AAA which covers authentication, authorization, and auditing. Of course, no attempt at defending information assets is complete if users security mindset is weak, so this chapter also discusses security awareness and the types of training available today, along with strategies for defending against attacks, such as surveillance tactics, data mining, pattern matching, intrusion detection and prevention, vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, disaster recovery planning, and defense in depth.

Chapter 17 - Nuclear heat energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter delves into the important heating processes within a nuclear power plant. Applying Fouriers law of heat conduction permits determining temperature distributions within the nuclear fuel rods. In contrast, convective cooling occurs on the rod surface. The coolant, cladding and fuel temperature distributions through a reactor are determined. Besides heat transfer in the reactor core, some power plants employ heat exchangers to generate steam that is fed to a turbine-generator to produce electricity. As a consequence of the second law of thermodynamics, thermal power plants reject condenser heat to the environment through mechanisms such as cooling towers.

Abstract The chapter discusses various techniques for coal seam degasification. All coal seams are gassy but they differ in their degree of gassiness. Pre-mining and post-mining techniques for underground coal mines are discussed. With good planning, 5080% of in-situ gas in coal can be removed before mining improving both safety and productivity. Similarly, 5080% of gas from mined-out areas (gobs) can be removed to minimize ventilation air requirements. Gas transport in underground mines and economics of coal seam degasification are also discussed.

The cache can be used to highlight terms in the cached version of a page, even if the terms were not used as part of the query to find that page. An advanced Google user will always pay careful attention to the details contained in the cached page's header, since there can be important information about the date the page was crawled, the terms that were found in the search, whether the cached page contains external images, links to the original page, and the text of the URL used to access the cached version of the page. Directory listings contain a great deal of information that is interesting from a security perspective. The directory listings can be used to determine specific information about the software installed on a server. Traversal techniques can be used to locate information that is often outside the piercing gaze of Google's crawlers. The chapter explores some specific techniques including directory traversal, incremental substitution, and extension walking.

Chapter 8 - Automation and Monitoring  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This chapter begins with the topic of process automation which has the intent of making repetitive tasks more consistent, faster, and cheaper. As part of this discussion, we talk about how to determine if a process should be automated, how to document the process in preparation for automation, and how to perform the actual automation. A variety of scripting languages can be used to perform process automation and general best practices for scripting these processes is discussed as well as some thoughts on how to choose the right scripting language for the job. The second part of the chapter is all about monitoring of enterprise applications. Key performance indicators (KPIs) that give insight into the enterprise applications performance over time as well as determining when to alert the enterprise applications administrator to potential problems within the application are discussed. Alerts are another important topic associated with enterprise application monitoring that is discussed including how to properly tune alerts through the selection of appropriate KPIs, retry counts, and retry intervals.

Chapter Three - Steroids and NMR  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this chapter, the NMR spectroscopic investigation of steroids is analyzed from five different angles, yet the general stage, the steroid-specific aspect and the provision of an illustrative example are the common themes for each perspective. Firstly, steroids and NMR are placed in their chemical, analytical and pharmaceutical context. Secondly, the characteristic challenges of steroid structure elucidation and the aspects of specific moieties of steroidal compounds are described following chronological and also stereospecific lines. Subsequently, the application of NMR methodology is reviewed with respect to hostguest chemistry, impurity profiling and isotopic labelling, such as 3H, 17O and 19F. Furthermore, the use of computer-assisted structure elucidation applied to the steroids using incremental systems, simple databases and the current sophisticated spectral prediction algorithms will be discussed and their applications compared for testosterone and tibolone. The most recently developed and also the rare, but nonetheless valuable, NMR methods will also be presented. These include covariance processing, residual dipolar couplings and high-sensitivity CC INADEQUATE experiments. Finally, suitable experiment sets for steroid structure elucidation and structure confirmation are discussed. Tibolone is used as the common thread and serves as an illustrative example throughout this chapter.

Chapter 12 Geomorphometry in SAGA  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary System for Automated Geoscientific Analyses (SAGA) is a full-fledged geographic information system (GIS) and many of its features have some relation with geomorphometry that makes it an ideal tool for operational work. This chapter emphasizes the particular characteristics of SAGA and the relation between some of its features and concepts. SAGA is GIS software with support for raster and vector data. It includes a large set of geo-scientific algorithms and is especially powerful for the analysis of digital elevation models (DEMs). The chapter introduces SAGA with a strong focus on the analysis and application of DEM data. SAGA has been designed to be a flexible and useful tool for the geoscientific community and a large part of its actual structure is due to that particular aim. Conceptually, the architecture of SAGA consists of three different components: (1) The application programming interface (API) provides all the basic functions for performing geographical analysis and is the true heart of SAGA itself. (2) A set of modules that are organized in module libraries, represents the geo-scientific methods. (3) The graphical user interface (GUI) is the system's front end, through which the user manages data and executes modules.

Chapter 3 - Solar Energy Collectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Chapter 3 gives a review of solar collectors which are the main components of any solar system. The review includes various types of stationary and sun-tracking collectors. The stationary collectors include flat-plate collectors (FPCs), under which glazing materials, collector absorbing plates, and collector construction are presented; compound parabolic collectors (CPCs) and evacuated tube collectors (ETCs). The sun-tracking concentrating collectors section cover parabolic trough collectors (PTCs), which include parabola construction and tracking mechanisms; Fresnel collectors; parabolic dish reflector and heliostat field collector. This review is followed by the optical and thermal analysis of both \\{FPCs\\} and concentrating collectors. The analysis for \\{FPCs\\} includes both water and air type systems whereas the analysis for concentrating collectors includes the CPC and the PTC. The analysis of flat-plate water collectors starts with an analysis of the absorbed solar radiation followed by collector energy losses, temperature distribution between the tubes, collector efficiency factor, heat removal factor, flow factor, and thermal efficiency. This is followed by practical considerations concerning FPCs. Subsequently, concentrating collectors are considered which include optical and thermal analysis of a CPC and optical and thermal analysis of PTCs. The chapter includes also the second law analysis of solar thermal systems and includes minimum entropy generation rate, optimum collector temperature, and non-isothermal collector analysis.

Chapter 3 - Harnessing and Integrating Africa's Renewable Energy Resources  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Africas long-term economic growth and competitiveness fundamentally depend on reliable access to energy services; yet, the population of Sub-Saharan Africa lags far behind the rest of the world in terms of access to electricity. Recent technological advancements as well as significant drops in associated costs present the African continent with a momentous opportunity to leapfrog to modern renewable energy. Although there is general recognition among African governments that renewable power provides huge opportunities given the continents enormous resources, the lack of coherent, consistent policies, technical skills, institutional capacity, infrastructure and financial incentives remains a major barrier for wide-spread adoption. In this chapter we review i. the significant role of renewables in mitigating Africas key energy challenges; and ii. the importance of coordinated efforts from all angles in guiding Africa towards a cleaner, more sustainable energy future.

Chapter 2 - Web Server Hacking  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter covers the fundamental process of hacking a web server by using several seminal network hacking tools. It is critical to understand what each of these tools is trying to accomplish and how to effectively use it yourself. The process is very structured with port scanning with Nmap, vulnerability scanning with Nesssus and Nikto, exploitation with Metasploit, and maintaining access (persistence) with Netcat. It introduces an easy-to-follow process for using each of these tools at the appropriate time with the appropriate technique to ensure high-quality results. This tool-driven approach is the same type of thinking that is used throughout the book on other targets such as the web application and web users.

Chapter 5 - Properties of Enzymes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract: This chapter provides broad coverage on enzyme properties, describing the characteristics and activities therein. The reasons for the unidirectional nature of enzyme-catalyzed reactions is outlined. Nomenclature is discussed with the aim of students being able to identify the enzyme activity type, based on name. Methods of control of enzyme activity, including induction of gene expression; noncovalent enzyme-substrate interactions; feedback inhibition; reversible covalent modification; control proteins; and proteolytic activation are characterized and discussed. The impact of phosphorylation is described. Overview Most enzymes are proteins. Enzymes are used to diagnose and treat disease. Some enzymes require coenzymes. Allosteric interactions can either facilitate or inhibit enzyme-catalyzed reactions. Phosphorylation of an enzyme may either increase or decrease its activity. Proteolytic enzymes in the lumen of the digestive tract are activated irreversibly. Synthetases stimulate synthesis using ATP.

Chapter 10 God's Sacred Words  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents different domains of linguistics and language activity. A living system is characterized by having constraints as an inherent part of the system. A group of words that functions together as a unit is called a constituent. A constituent is an important notion in syntactic theory. Moreover, constituents are embedded one inside another and create a hierarchical structure. The power of the linguistic metaphor for biology is raising the awareness about the constraints imposed on tokens in a string of letters as a part of a meaning-making process. The rules that constrain the organization of micro-level particles are just one aspect of meaning making and should be careful not assigned them a hegemonic role in the multifaceted process of meaning making. Grammar can never be a substitute for meaning but just one layer of meaning making.

Chapter 24 - Nuclear energy future  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter attempts to concisely describe the role that nuclear power may take in the meeting the worlds future energy needs. Historically, economic considerations have triumphed all other considerations when selecting an energy source. Nuclear power growth stagnated in the late twentieth century for a variety of reasons. A revival in nuclear reactor construction is beginning in the United States and elsewhere at the start of the twenty-first century. World energyand especially electricityuse is increasing and sustainable approaches to meeting this need are sought. With rising concern about climate change, nuclear power is found to be the lowest contributor to carbon dioxide emissions, even compared to solar and wind power. Besides electricity generation, power reactors can be utilized for large-scale desalination and hydrogen generation.

Chapter 8 - Corrosion/Coatings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter explains that pipe is buoyant, and an empty line may float in water. Wet silts are like viscous fluids causing inadequately weighted pipelines to pop up. There are various government entities that have jurisdiction over navigable rivers, bays, marshlands, and offshore waters. These agencies may stipulate that pipelines be buried at certain depths and be stabilized. A good way to stabilize a pipeline is to use an adequate concrete weight coating. Determining the thickness of the concrete involves a process of balancing upward forces such as buoyancy of the mud and the downward forcesweights of pipe, protective coating, and concrete, allowing a factor of 60 (negative buoyancy). Such computations with several variables can become involved and tedious.

Chapter 17: Estimating Net Savings: Common Practices  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This chapter focuses on the methods used to estimate net energy savings in evaluation, measurement, and verification (EM&V) studies for energy efficiency (EE) programs. The chapter provides a definition of net savings, which remains an unsettled topic both within the EE evaluation community and across the broader public policy evaluation community, particularly in the context of attribution of savings to particular program. The chapter differs from the measure-specific Uniform Methods Project (UMP) chapters in both its approach and work product. Unlike other UMP resources that provide recommended protocols for determining gross energy savings, this chapter describes and compares the current industry practices for determining net energy savings, but does not prescribe particular methods.

Chapter 6 - Subsea Cost Estimation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter provides guidelines for cost estimation during a project feasibility study, where the accuracy range is between 30% for subsea field development projects. Subsea cost refers to the cost of the whole project, which generally includes the capital expenditures (CAPEX) and operation expenditures (OPEX) of the subsea field development. The feasibility studies are performed before execution of the project, which may include three phases as shown in the figure: prefield development; conceptual/feasibility study; and front-end engineering design (FEED). Cost estimations are made for several purposes, and the methods used for the estimations as well as the desired amount of accuracy will be different. The cost estimation classifications according to Association for the Advancement of Cost Engineering (AACE): level of project definition: expressed as percentage of complete definition; end usage: typical purpose of estimation; methodology: typical estimating method; expected accuracy range: typical range relative to best index of 1; and preparation effort: typical degree of effort relative to least cost index of 1.

Chapter 2 Conventional refining processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses conventional refining processes. Refining is a very elaborate operation by which crude oil is transformed into a series of products such as, gases, fuels, solvents, lube oils, etc. Crude oil is a complex mixture of hydrocarbons (HC) of different C/H ratio and molecular structures. The different classes of HC molecules comprise paraffins, olefins, cycles, aromatics, resins, asphaltenes, and other poly-unsaturated molecules. In addition to hydrocarbons, crude oils also contain some other compounds composed by other atoms (heteroatoms) than carbon and hydrogen. Those moieties consist of sulfur (S), nitrogen (N), oxygen (O), and heavy metals. Crudes are usually classified in terms of their specific gravity as very light, light, median, heavy, and extra heavy. An empirical set of units for the crude gravity, defined by the American Petroleum Institute (API), is currently used in oil industry. Their appearance varies from transparent liquids to black solids, going from light to heavy. Light oils have lower specific gravity and larger API gravity, while for heavy oils vice versa. Their composition also changes, and so the concentration of those heteroatomic compounds typically increases from light to heavy. The crude oils are also categorized in terms of their chemical composition, as for instance, sour crude oils, those presenting high acidity, paraffinic, naphthenic, and aromatic.

Chapter 3 Emerging biocatalytic processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses biocatalytic processes. The microbial populations, working in the oil reservoir, influenced the final petroleum product. Indeed, those populations adapted to the reservoir environment under extreme conditions, such as pressure, salinity, temperature, etc. The isolation of such microorganisms from extreme environments as well as those from environments exposed to oil (via oil spills, oily wastewater treatment, etc.) has resulted in identification of biological catalysts, which could be used to remove heteroatoms or transform oil components to improve yields and quality of the oil as well as its refined products. Bacteria have evolved to scavenge carbon, sulfur, nitrogen, and metals present in crude oil over time, and such bacteria have served as the source of catalytic materials for oil bioprocessing applications. The understanding that these biological functionalities are a result of evolutionary pressures, serves as inspiration for development of new and emerging technologies. Five main areas of bioprocessing research have emerged in the search for commercial value addition: (1) microbial enhanced oil recovery (MEOR), (2) biodesulfurization, (3) biodenitrogenation, (4) viscosity reduction/biocracking, and (5) biodemetallization.

Chapter 2 - Black Liquor Gasification  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Black liquor gasification (BLG) is being considered primarily as an option for production of biofuels in recent years due to the focus on the transport sectors high oil dependence and climate impact. BLG may be performed either at low temperatures or at high temperatures, based on whether the process is conducted above or below the melting temperature range of the spent pulping chemicals. The development of various BLG technologiesSCA-Billerud process, the Copeland recovery process, Weyerhaeusers process, the St. Regis hydropyrolysis process, the Texaco process, VTTs circulating fluidized bed BLG process, Babcock and Wilcoxs bubbling fluidized bed gasification process, NSP process (Ny Sodahus Process), DARS (Direct Alkali Recovery System) process, BLG with direct causticization, Manufacturing and Technology Conversion International fluidized bed gasification, Chemrec gasification, catalytic hydrothermal gasification of black liquoris discussed in this chapter. The two main technologies under development are pressurized gasification and atmospheric gasification, being commercialized by Chemrec AB and ThermoChem Recovery International, respectively.

Chapter 6 - Google Hacking Showcase  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on what can go drastically wrong when the Google hacking threat is ignored. A decent no-tech hacker can accumulate a library of significant data just by observing the world around him. But often that data is completely useless on its own. Arguably the most well known of no-tech hacking techniques among hackers in the know, Google hacking has become a standard weapon in every attacker's arsenal. A self-respecting Google hacker spends hours trolling the Internet for juicy stuff. Firing off search after search, they thrive on the thrill of finding clean, mean, streamlined queries and get a real rush from sharing those queries and trading screenshots of their findings. Google Hacking Showcase consists of screenshots of wild Google hacks the author had witnessed. Borrowing from the pool of interesting Google queries he had created, along with scores of queries from the community. The author snagged screenshots and presented them one at a time, making smarmy comments along the way. It makes sense to include the showcase in the edition of Google Hacking.

Chapter 10 - Hacking Google Services  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter describes ways of hacking into Google services. It reveals tricks to recover interesting information from Google's vast indexes. AJAX Search API is one of the leading Google services on the AJAX front. This service is meant as a replacement of the older SOAP search service which support was discontinued some time ago. AJAX Search API is considered to be more powerful then the SOAP service and easier to work with. The primary goal of the service is to enable external websites to host Google supplied gadgets which provide searching facilities within or outside of the hosting website and also among video clips, maps, blogs, custom search engines, etc. The Google AJAX Search API is designed to be embedded within external pages. This is described in the study. Following this, it reveals the characteristics of AJAX search, using Firefox as the primary tool of development. Furthermore, it describes the ways of hacking into the AJAX search engine. It also discusses Google calendar, Google's blog search, and subversion version management system. Finally, the study demonstrates that that the search facility is quite fuzzy and queries need to be often refined in order to get better results.

Chapter 22 - Radioactive Waste Disposal  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses safe disposal of radioactive waste in order to provide safety to workers and the public. Radioactive wastes arise from a great variety of sources, including the nuclear fuel cycle, and from beneficial uses of isotopes and radiation by institutions. Spent fuel contains uranium, plutonium, and highly radioactive fission products. In the United States spent fuel is accumulating, awaiting the development of a high-level waste repository. A multi-barrier system involving packaging and geological media will provide protection of the public over the centuries the waste must be isolated. The favored method of disposal is in a mined cavity deep underground. In other countries, reprocessing the fuel assemblies permits recycling of materials and disposal of smaller volumes of solidified waste. Transportation of wastes is by casks and containers designed to withstand severe accidents. Low-level wastes (LLWs) come from research and medical procedures and from a variety of activation and fission sources at a reactor site. They generally can be given near-surface burial. Isotopes of special interest are cobalt-60 and cesium-137. Transuranic wastes are being disposed of in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant. Establishment of regional disposal sites by interstate compacts has generally been unsuccessful in the United States. Decontamination of defense sites will be long and costly. Decommissioning of reactors in the future will contribute a great deal of low-level radioactive waste.

CHAPTER XI - THE CHILTERN CROSSES  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the Chiltern Crosses. So far, no evidence has been forthcoming to vouch for the origin of the interesting enigmas known as Whiteleaf Cross and Bledlow Cross. At present, all that can be said with certainty is that an illustration of Whiteleaf Cross accompanied its description in a book, dated 1742, by Francis Wise, Radcliffe Librarian, entitled Further Observations upon the White Horse and other Antiquities in Berkshire. In 1742, he regarded Whiteleaf Cross as an antiquity and made no mention of Bledlow Cross although he refers to a Danish camp at Bledlow. The dating and origin of the Crosses have been discussed by the late Sir Lindsay Scott in Antiquity, where he suggests that Whiteleaf Cross, in regard to 16th or 17th century undergraduate activities in turf-cutting near Cambridge, might be the work of the brighter youth of the two Risboroughs, in perhaps the 17th century A.D. And still he's in the self-same place Where, at his setting out, he was. Samuel Butler

Chapter 5 Salinity Gradient Energy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

There exists a huge potential for the generation of energy from the mixing of saltwater and freshwater. The potential is 2.6TW, which is more than the global electricity consumption (2.0TW). Two membrane-based technologies exist to convert this potentially available energy into useful power: pressure-retarded osmosis (PRO) and reverse electrodialysis (RED). In PRO, water is transported through a semipermeable membrane from the less concentrated solution toward the concentrated salt solution to generate power. In RED, salt ions are transported from the concentrated salt solution through ion exchange membranes toward the less concentrated solution to extract the energy. Both technologies were developed in the 1970s and 1980s and both regained interest lately due to recent developments in membrane technology and the need for sustainable energy processes. This chapter describes the potential of salinity gradient energy of both processes in detail, and an overview of the relevant literature on both technologies is presented. Furthermore, it summarizes the recent developments, pilot testing, scale-up, and future expectations of both technologies.

Chapter 13 - Covert Listening Devices  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses a variety of cover listening devices that might be available to the Zukin. Although a range of eavesdropping tools is available, one should gravitate toward passive methods of eavesdropping. Such methods can enable to avoid entering the locations that one wish to monitor. It discusses the use of radio frequency scanners for monitoring several methods of communication. One can use such devices to monitor Bluetooth, cellular, and data networks, and other radio sources as well. Although specialized equipment is required for listening to some forms of radio communication, others are accessible with low-cost devices off the shelf or equipment that we can cobble together ourselves. It discusses the use of key loggers, in both hardware and software forms. Such devices can be used to record everything from keystrokes to complete video of the user's desktop for later perusal. It also discusses some of the issues in using key loggers, such as placement, retrieving data, and taking steps to not be discovered. It concludes with clandestinely placed sensors, including video and audio bugs.

Chapter 1 - Nanoscience and Nanotechnology  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Assuming that the reader is relatively new to the area of carbon nanotube reinforced composites, this chapter aims to create a solid background in the topics of nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N). We start with an introduction to the nanoscale, from basic themes, such as the importance of size, and why the properties of materials change at the nanoscale. The concepts of N&N are presented from the starting point: the Feynmans lecture in 1959. The different types of nanotechnology are discussed. The history of nano shows us that nanotechnology was, somehow, already been used in the ancient world as demonstrated by great examples as the Lycurgus cup and stained glass windows. The nano world has inspired many applications that make use of the new features and phenomena observed at the nanoscale. We discuss some of the existing and envisioned applications in many areas, including medicine, food, electronics, energy, air pollution, space, and even sports. Finally, we take a look to the future and realize that although scientists are able to manipulate materials at the atomic scale, atom by atom, there is still much to be done, i.e., There is Plenty of Room at the Bottom!

Chapter 3 - Recycling in Context  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The recycling of metals is widely viewed as a fruitful sustainability strategy, but information on the degree to which recycling is actually occurring is limited in scope and detail. In this chapter we define various metrics for the recycling of metals and present current information on recycled content (RC), end-of-life recycling rates (EOL-RR), and old scrap ratios (OSR) for 60 metals of the periodic table. Because of growth in metal use over time, and because metal in-use lifetimes can be many years to several decades, many RC values are low and will remain so for the foreseeable future. In addition, because relatively low efficiencies often exist in the collection and processing of most discarded products, because of inherent limitations in recycling processes, and because primary material is often relatively abundant and low cost (thereby keeping down the price of scrap), many EOL-RR are very low but have the potential for improvement. Only 12 metals (Co, Fe, Mn, Nb, Ni, Pb, Pd, Pt, Re, Rh, Sn and Ti) have the EOL-RR above 50% at present. Only Nb, Pb and Ru have an RC above 50%, although 15 metals are in the 2550% range. Thirteen metals have an OSR >50%. Improving recycling performance will be increasingly challenging as materials integration continues its rise.

Chapter 13 - Progressing cavity pumps  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Progressing cavity pumps (PCPs) have the advantage of being able to easily pump solids, liquids, and gasses. With comparatively the lowest capital cost and highest operating efficiencies of any ALS, \\{PCPs\\} are the preferred artificial lift system for many CBM operations. Dewatering CBM wells with \\{PCPs\\} is a relatively routine operation that has been deployed successfully since the mid-1980s. The PC pump is composed of two components, the rotor and the stator. The rotor is manufactured from high strength steel and covered with a chrome layer 0.010 to 0.020 inches thick. The rotor is the only moving component of the pump. The stator has an internal helix shape molded into an elastomer compound that is chemically bonded to the inside of a steel tube. When the rotor is inserted into the stator, it creates a continuous seal line (compression/interference fit between the rotor and stator elastomer) that extends from the pump suction to discharge. This creates a series of identical, but separate, cavities that progress from the pump suction to the discharge as the rotor turns. Water production handling, gas production handling, critical tubing flow velocity, and pump landing depth are briefly discussed in this chapter

Chapter 14 - Coal bed methane  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary Methane adsorbed to the surface of coal is a very old issue with some new commercial ramifications. This explosive gas has made underground coal mines dangerous both from the risk of explosion and the possibility of an oxygen-poor atmosphere that wouldn't support life. The miner's main concern with coal bed methane (CBM) has been how to get rid of it. Techniques to deal with CBM in mines have ranged from the classic canary in a cage to detect an oxygen-poor atmosphere to huge ventilation fans to force the replacement of a methane-rich environment with outside air, to drilling CBM wells in front of the coal face to try to degas the coal prior to exposing the mine to the CBM. All these techniques have met with some amount of success. None of the techniques to prevent CBM from fouling the air in an underground mine has been totally successful. With the CBM's unique method of gas storage, the preponderance of the gas is available only to very low coalface pressures. The coalface pressure is set by a combination of flowing wellhead pressure and the hydrostatic head exerted by standing liquid within the well bore. Effective compression strategies can lower the wellhead pressure to very low values. Effective deliquification techniques can reduce or remove the backpressure caused by accumulated liquid. CBM's economic impact is briefly explained in this chapter.

Chapter 2 - Chemistry of Gasification  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The gasification of any carbonaceous or hydrocarbonaceous material is, essentially, the conversion of the carbon constituents by any one of a variety of chemical processes to produce combustible gases. The process includes a series of reaction steps that convert the feedstock into synthesis gas (syngas, carbon monoxide, CO, plus hydrogen, H2) and other gaseous products. This conversion is generally accomplished by introducing a gasifying agent (air, oxygen, and/or steam) into a reactor vessel containing the feedstock where the temperature, pressure, and flow pattern (moving bed, fluidized, or entrained bed) are controlled. The gaseous products other than carbon monoxide and hydrogen and the proportions of these product gases (such as carbon dioxide, CO2, methane, CH4, water vapor, H2O, hydrogen sulfide, H2S, and sulfur dioxide, SO2) depends on the: (1) type of feedstock, (2) the chemical composition of the feedstock, (3) the gasifying agent or gasifying medium, as well as (4) the thermodynamics and chemistry of the gasification reactions as controlled by the process operating parameters. In addition, the kinetic rates and extents of conversion for the several chemical reactions that are a part of the gasification process are variable and are typically functions of: (1) temperature, (2) pressure, and (3) reactor configuration, and (4) the gas composition of the product gases and whether or not these gases influence the outcome of the reaction. It is the purpose of this chapter to present descriptions of the various reactions involved in gasification of carbonaceous and hydrocarbonaceous feedstocks as well as the various thermodynamic aspects of these reactions which dictate the process parameters used to produce the various gases.

Chapter 12 - Security Risk Reviews  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the security risk review (SRR). The purpose of the SRR process is to identify areas where one's security standards are not being met. The focus initially should be on applications and supporting infrastructure that are most critical to the organization. This risk analysis process follows five high-level steps: assess resources, generate findings, analyze risk, risk decision, and risk exceptions. The goal with the SRR is to prioritize not only the resources being evaluated but also the importance of the standards themselves. The standard requiring a log of all guest accesses to the data center may be rightly deemed less critical than the requirement to have swipe card access to the data center. Reviews should be performed periodically or whenever new policies/standards are adopted by the organization. A fundamental control for any organization is a collection of security policies and standards that set the tone for how to operate the business securely. Once these are in place, the challenge then becomes how to assess the organization's current alignment with these standards and determine which gaps most urgently need to be addressed. This may sound like an audit function, but there is a very important distinction here: this process is meant to proactively prioritize those areas where a deviation from the standard might be acceptable and recognize the cases where such a divergence cannot be tolerated. Like many risk activities, the result will either be a formal acceptance of the current state or a plan to mitigate the risks. This is one of the fundamental on-going risk assessment activities that will help to gauge the security posture of the organization versus what controls might be documented on paper.

Chapter 9 - Natural Gas Dehydration  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Natural, associated, or tail gas usually contains water, in liquid and/or vapor form, at source and/or as a result of sweetening with an aqueous solution. Operating experience and thorough engineering have proved that it is necessary to reduce and control the water content of gas to ensure safe processing and transmission. Pipeline drips installed near wellheads and at strategic locations along gathering and trunk lines will eliminate most of the free water lifted from the wells in the gas stream. Multistage separators can also be deployed to ensure the reduction of free water that may be present. However, the removal of the water vapor that exists in solution in natural gas requires a more complex treatment. This treatment consists of dehydrating the natural gas, which is accomplished by lowering the dew point temperature of the gas at which water vapor will condense from the gas. There are several methods of dehydrating natural gas. The most common of these are liquid desiccant (glycol) dehydration, solid desiccant dehydration, and cooling the gas. Any of these methods may be used to dry gas to a specific water content. Usually, the combination of the water content specification, initial water content, process character, operational nature, and economic factors determine the dehydration method to be utilized. However, the choice of dehydration method is usually between glycol and solid desiccants. These are presented in depth in subsequent portions of this chapter. Keywords: absorber, adsorption isotherm, bed loading, chemisorption, dehydration, desiccant, desiccant regeneration, equilibrium zone, flash tank, flow distribution, glycol circulation pump, glycol dehydration, inlet feed contamination, liquid carryover, mass transfer zone, molecular sieve, overcirculation, reboiler, solubility, still, surge tank, undercirculation.

This book contains papers presented at the conference on subsea control and data acquisition. The tasks performed by subsea control systems, although fairly straightforward, are dominated by an alien environment and the high costs associated with failure and repair. The evolution of systems design has resulted in a growing confidence in equipment reliability. In the future, however, more searching demands may include active regulation of valves and the use of data for reservoir management purposes. The emphasis of the papers is on technical depth and understanding, with particular attention being paid to the science control and data monitoring in relation to the task of hydrocarbon recovery.

Chapter 6 - Brake System Layout Design  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This chapter brings together high-level braking system design (Chapters 3 and 4Chapter 3Chapter 4) and the design of friction brakes (Chapter 5) to complete the layout design of road vehicle braking systems. Two actuation systems are studied: hydraulic (used on passenger cars and light commercial vehicles) and pneumatic (used on heavy commercial vehicles). Other braking technologies (e.g. regenerative) and actuation systems (e.g. power hydraulic and electromechanical) are also mentioned. A four-step design procedure is presented, which includes designing the basic braking system parameters based on the vehicle configuration, specifying the brakes (size and torque capacity), designing the actuation system, and verification (legislative requirements). Examples are presented for a hydraulic system with a vacuum booster (passenger car) and a pneumatic system (articulated commercial vehicle), which illustrate the important features of achieving a good basic system configuration. In passenger cars, the importance of driver interface parameters such as pedal feel is explained, and for commercial vehicles, compatibility, load sensing, and predominance between the trailer and towing vehicle brake systems is discussed.
