Statistical Performance Evaluation Of Soft Seat Pressure Relief Valves  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Risk-based inspection methods enable estimation of the probability of failure on demand for spring-operated pressure relief valves at the United States Department of Energy's Savannah River Site in Aiken, South Carolina. This paper presents a statistical performance evaluation of soft seat spring operated pressure relief valves. These pressure relief valves are typically smaller and of lower cost than hard seat (metal to metal) pressure relief valves and can provide substantial cost savings in fluid service applications (air, gas, liquid, and steam) providing that probability of failure on demand (the probability that the pressure relief valve fails to perform its intended safety function during a potentially dangerous over pressurization) is at least as good as that for hard seat valves. The research in this paper shows that the proportion of soft seat spring operated pressure relief valves failing is the same or less than that of hard seat valves, and that for failed valves, soft seat valves typically have failure ratios of proof test pressure to set pressure less than that of hard seat valves.

Section 1603 Treasury Grant Expiration: Industry Insight on Financing and Market Implications  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the wake of the 2008-2009 financial crises, tax equity investors largely withdrew from the market, resulting in stagnation of project development. In response, Congress established the Treasury grant program pursuant to Section 1603 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (..Section..1603 Program) to offer a cash payment in lieu of a production and investment tax credit. This study addresses the likely project financing and market impacts from the expiration of the ..Section..1603 Program. The authors assembled an array of insights offered by financial executives active in the renewable energy (RE) market during conference panel discussions and in presentations, direct interviews, and email correspondences. This analysis found that the ..Section..1603 Program alleviated the need to monetize the tax credit incentives through specialized investors, helped lower the transaction and financing costs associated with renewable electricity projects, and generally supported an extensive build-out of renewable power generation capacity. With the expiration of the ..Section..1603 Program, smaller or less-established renewable power developers will have more difficulty attracting needed financial capital and completing their projects, development of projects relying on newer or 'innovative' technologies will likely slow as traditional tax equity investors are known to be highly averse to technology risk in the projects they fund, and, finally, projects relying on tax equity may be more expensive to develop due to higher transaction costs and potentially higher yields required to attract tax equity.

Automatic readout micrometer  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A measuring system is disclosed for surveying and very accurately positioning objects with respect to a reference line. A principal use of this surveying system is for accurately aligning the electromagnets which direct a particle beam emitted from a particle accelerator. Prior art surveying systems require highly skilled surveyors. Prior art systems include, for example, optical surveying systems which are susceptible to operator reading errors, and celestial navigation-type surveying systems, with their inherent complexities. The present invention provides an automatic readout micrometer which can very accurately measure distances. The invention has a simplicity of operation which practically eliminates the possibilities of operator optical reading error, owning to the elimination of traditional optical alignments for making measurements. The invention has an extendable arm which carries a laser surveying target. The extendable arm can be continuously positioned over its entire length of travel by either a coarse or fine adjustment without having the fine adjustment outrun the coarse adjustment until a reference laser beam is centered on the target as indicated by a digital readout. The length of the micrometer can then be accurately and automatically read by a computer and compared with a standardized set of alignment measurements. Due to its construction, the micrometer eliminates any errors due to temperature changes when the system is operated within a standard operating temperature range.

Improve the design of fire emergency relief systems  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In recognition of the potential severe consequences of a process vessel rupture under fire exposure, industry codes such as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 30 and the American Petroleum Institute (API) Standard 2000 have been established for the specification of emergency relief systems (ERSs). The intent is to reduce the risk of human injury and asset losses associated with process plant fires. These codes are largely prescriptive in nature. That is, they provide specific details on how to achieve safe design. Prescriptive standards are easy to apply, because they are simplified approaches which generally apply to many (but not all) situations. But they also have limitations, including the tendency to result in, at best, suboptimal (overly conservative) designs, and in some instances potentially unsafe designs. As the fire community moves toward performance-based standards for building protection, perhaps it is time to consider a similar approach for vessel protection in a fire. The design issues addressed in this article include: Use of heat input based on actual fuel burning rate, heat of combustion, and flame emissive power, vs. NFPA 30 and API 2000 heat-input equations; Effect of drainage (from vessel to sump) on fire duration, rather than heat input; Use of risk assessment to determine the relative frequency of fire and process-induced incidents; and design for containment, rather than vessel protection when fire probability is low

Clothes Dryer Automatic Termination Evaluation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Volume 2: Improved Sensor and Control Designs Many residential clothes dryers on the market today provide automatic cycles that are intended to stop when the clothes are dry, as determined by the final remaining moisture content (RMC). However, testing of automatic termination cycles has shown that many dryers are susceptible to over-drying of loads, leading to excess energy consumption. In particular, tests performed using the DOE Test Procedure in Appendix D2 of 10 CFR 430 subpart B have shown that as much as 62% of the energy used in a cycle may be from over-drying. Volume 1 of this report shows an average of 20% excess energy from over-drying when running automatic cycles with various load compositions and dryer settings. Consequently, improving automatic termination sensors and algorithms has the potential for substantial energy savings in the U.S.

Analysis of HFIR pressurizer pump overspeed transients and relief valve performance  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The pressurizer pump overspeed transients at the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) fall in the category of {open_quotes}increase in coolant inventory transients.{close_quotes} They are among the accident transients to be performed for Chapter 15 of the HFIR safety analysis report (SAR). The pressurizer pump speed starting to increase inadvertently to reach its maximum speed of 3,560 rpm while the reactor operates under normal conditions is the cause of this transient. Increased primary coolant system pressure due to increased pressurizer pump flow into the primary coolant head tank challenges the relief valves to open. If the relief valves do not open, increased primary coolant system pressure will challenge the integrity of the high pressure boundary. Two sets of analyses were performed to analyze the pressurizer pump overspeed transients. The purpose of the first analysis is to estimate how long it will take for the relief valves to open under different conditions and whether or not they will chatter or flutter for a considerable amount of time. The analysis estimates relief valve performance and stability using four different relief valve subsystem models. The relief valve subsystem models are not attached to the primary coolant system model. Vigorous pressure oscillations were produced in all of the computations performed as part of the first analysis. The second analysis includes new simulations of the pressurizer pump overspeed transients that were previously simulated using the RELAP5 thermal-hydraulic computer code. The HFIRSYS, High Flux Isotope Reactor System Transient Analysis computer code, was utilized for these simulations providing referable results for comparisons. The increased pressurizer pump flow due to runaway pressurizer pump speed pressurizes the primary coolant system. The assumptions were made in such a way to form constraining conditions at initiation of and during the transients to generate as high an overpressure situation as possible.

ANALYSIS OF SAFETY RELIEF VALVE PROOF TEST DATA TO OPTIMIZE LIFECYCLE MAINTENANCE COSTS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Proof test results were analyzed and compared with a proposed life cycle curve or hazard function and the limit of useful life. Relief valve proof testing procedures, statistical modeling, data collection processes, and time-in-service trends are presented. The resulting analysis of test data allows for the estimation of the PFD. Extended maintenance intervals to the limit of useful life as well as methodologies and practices for improving relief valve performance and reliability are discussed. A generic cost-benefit analysis and an expected life cycle cost reduction concludes that $90 million maintenance dollars might be avoided for a population of 3000 valves over 20 years.

Probabilistic analysis and operational data in response to NUREG-0737, Item II. K. 3. 2 for Westinghouse NSSS plants. [Modifications to reduce LOCA due to stuck-open power-operated relief valve  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes various modifications to Westinghouse plants since TMI and, using probabilistic analysis via event trees, estimates the effect of the post-TMI changes, including an automatic (PORV) (power operated relief valve) isolation concept identified in NUREG-0731 item II.K.3.1. The requested safety valve operational data is included as an appendix. A significant reduction in the frequency of a small break LOCA, due to a stuck open PORV has already been achieved by the modifications made subsequent to TMI. Domestic Westinghouse operating plant data (based on 181 reactor years of operation) has been collected and evaluated. An auto block valve closure system has been evaluated. The analysis is generally applicable to all Westinghouse plants which have incorporated the post-TMI hardware and procedural changes relative to stuck-open PORVs.

Investigation Of Adhesion Formation In New Stainless Steel Trim Spring Operated Pressure Relief Valves  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Examination of proof test data for new (not previously installed) stainless steel (SS) trim spring operated pressure relief valves (SOPRV) reveals that adhesions form between the seat and disc in about 46% of all such SOPRV. The forces needed to overcome these adhesions can be sufficiently large to cause the SOPRV to fail its proof test (FPT) prior to installation. Furthermore, a significant percentage of SOPRV which are found to FPT are also found to ''fail to open'' (FTO) meaning they would not relief excess pressure in the event of an overpressure event. The cases where adhesions result in FTO or FPT appear to be confined to SOPRV with diameters < 1 in and set pressures < 150 psig and the FTO are estimated to occur in 0.31% to 2.00% of this subpopulation of SS trim SOPRV. The reliability and safety implications of these finding for end-users who do not perform pre-installation testing of SOPRV are discussed.

Strategic planning for disaster relief logistics: lessons from supply chain management  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Management of disaster relief logistics requires different techniques at different levels. We identify four stages: 1 strategic planning which concerns high level decisions such as supplier selection and confirmation of communication protocols; 2 preparedness which concerns decisions regarding the amount and location of relief supplies to be stored; 3 pre-event response which concerns decisions during those occasions when an approaching disaster, such as a hurricane, has been detected; 4 post-event response which concerns what needs to be done immediately after a disaster has occurred. In this article, we concentrate on the strategic planning stage and build an integrated logistics model based on elements of supply chain management theory. This model provides specific recommendations to practitioners and identifies important areas to be researched. We also point out the applicable techniques at each of the other stages and cite relevant literature.

Deepwater royalty relief product of 3 1/2 year U.S. political effort  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Against the backdrop of more than 20 years of increasingly stringent environmental regulation, ever-expanding exploration and development moratoria on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS), and reductions in producer tax incentives, oil and natural gas exploration companies active in deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico recently won a significant legislative victory. On Nov. 28, 1995, President Clinton signed into law S.395, the Alaska Power Administration Sale Act. Title 3 of S.395 embodies the Outer Continental Shelf Deep Water Royalty Relief Act. This landmark legislation provides substantial incentives for oil and natural gas production in the gulf of Mexico by temporarily eliminating royalties on certain deepwater leases. It is the first direct incentive for oil and gas production enacted at the federal level in many years. This paper reviews the elements used to arrive at this successful legislation including the congressional leadership. It describes debates, cabinet level discussions, and use of parlimentary procedures.

THE EFFECTS OF MAINTENANCE ACTIONS ON THE PFDavg OF SPRING OPERATED PRESSURE RELIEF VALVES  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The safety integrity level (SIL) of equipment used in safety instrumented functions is determined by the average probability of failure on demand (PFDavg) computed at the time of periodic inspection and maintenance, i.e., the time of proof testing. The computation of PFDavg is generally based solely on predictions or estimates of the assumed constant failure rate of the equipment. However, PFDavg is also affected by maintenance actions (or lack thereof) taken by the end user. This paper shows how maintenance actions can affect the PFDavg of spring operated pressure relief valves (SOPRV) and how these maintenance actions may be accounted for in the computation of the PFDavg metric. The method provides a means for quantifying the effects of changes in maintenance practices and shows how these changes impact plant safety.

Automatic TLI recognition system, general description  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report is a general description of an automatic target recognition system developed at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory for the Department of Energy. A user`s manual is a separate volume, Automatic TLI Recognition System, User`s Guide, and a programmer`s manual is Automatic TLI Recognition System, Programmer`s Guide. This system was designed as an automatic target recognition system for fast screening of large amounts of multi-sensor image data, based on low-cost parallel processors. This system naturally incorporates image data fusion, and it gives uncertainty estimates. It is relatively low cost, compact, and transportable. The software is easily enhanced to expand the system`s capabilities, and the hardware is easily expandable to increase the system`s speed. In addition to its primary function as a trainable target recognition system, this is also a versatile, general-purpose tool for image manipulation and analysis, which can be either keyboard-driven or script-driven. This report includes descriptions of three variants of the computer hardware, a description of the mathematical basis if the training process, and a description with examples of the system capabilities.

Fluoroscopically Guided Feeding Tube Insertion for Relief of Postoperative Gastrointestinal Anastomotic Obstruction and Leakage  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose. To evaluate the feasibility and effectiveness of feeding tube insertion and enteral feeding for the treatment of postoperative gastrointestinal anastomotic obstruction and leakage. Materials and Methods. From June 1999 to June 2002, thirty-four cases of postoperative gastrointestinal anastomotic obstruction and leakage after surgery for gastric carcinoma were treated by insertion of a feeding tube under fluoroscopic guidance. Twenty-one patients were male and 13 were female. The patients' ages ranged from 39 to 74 years (mean age: 61 years). All the patients experienced vomiting, and 15 patients had anastomotic site or duodenal stump leakage. We evaluated the feasibility of feeding tube insertion for enteral feeding to improve the obstruction and facilitate leakage site closure, and the patients' nutritional benefit was also evaluated by checking the serum albumin level between pre- and post-enteral feeding via the feeding tube.Results. Thirty-two patients (94%) were successfully managed by feeding tube insertion, but the remaining two were not managed, and this was due to severe angulations at the anastomotic site. The procedure times for feeding tube insertion ranged from 15 to 60 minutes (mean time: 45 minutes). Twenty-eight patients experienced symptomatic relief of gastrointestinal obstruction, and they were able to resume a normal regular diet after feeding tube removal. Three patients underwent stent insertion due to recurrent symptoms, and one patient underwent jejunostomy feeding due to the presence of a persistent leakage site. Eleven patients achieved leakage site closure after enteral feeding via a feeding tube. The serum albumin level was significant, increased from pre-enteral feeding (2.65 {+-} 0.37 g/dL) to the post-enteral feeding (3.64 {+-} 0.58 g/dL) via the feeding tube (p < 0.001). The duration of follow-up ranged from one to 53 months (mean: 23 months). Conclusion. The insertion of a feeding tube for enteral feeding under fluoroscopic guidance is safe, and it provides effective relief from gastrointestinal anastomotic site obstruction and leakage after gastric surgery. Moreover, our findings indicate that feeding tube insertion for enteral feeding may be used as the primary procedure to treat postoperative anastomotic obstruction and leakage.

Environmental Assessment of Urgent-Relief Acceptance of Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Department of Energy has completed the Environmental Assessment (EA) of Urgent-Relief Acceptance of Foreign Research Reactor Spent Nuclear Fuel and issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the proposed action. The EA and FONSI are enclosed for your information. The Department has decided to accept a limited number of spent nuclear fuel elements (409 elements) containing uranium that was enriched in the United States from eight research reactors in Austria, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Sweden, and Switzerland. This action is necessary to maintain the viability of a major US nuclear weapons nonproliferation program to limit or eliminate the use of highly enriched uranium in civil programs. The purpose of the EA is to maintain the cooperation of the foreign research reactor operators with the nonproliferation program while a more extensive Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is prepared on a proposed broader policy involving the acceptance of up to 15,000 foreign research reactor spent fuel elements over a 10 to 15 year period. Based on an evaluation of transport by commercial container liner or chartered vessel, five eastern seaboard ports, and truck and train modes of transporting the spent fuel overland to the Savannah River Sits, the Department has concluded that no significant impact would result from any combination of port and made of transport. In addition, no significant impacts were found from interim storage of spent fuel at the Savannah River Site.

Achieving this goal in practice has proved challenging, especially for numerical models on parallel architectures. To track the progress in addressing the challenges, and to present the state of the art in automatic differentiation (AD), every four years the scientific community holds a conference focusing on AD applications in science and engineering, its theory, and the development of compiler-based tools and web-based differentiation services.

Automatic identification of abstract online groups  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Online abstract groups, in which members aren't explicitly connected, can be automatically identified by computer-implemented methods. The methods involve harvesting records from social media and extracting content-based and structure-based features from each record. Each record includes a social-media posting and is associated with one or more entities. Each feature is stored on a data storage device and includes a computer-readable representation of an attribute of one or more records. The methods further involve grouping records into record groups according to the features of each record. Further still the methods involve calculating an n-dimensional surface representing each record group and defining an outlier as a record having feature-based distances measured from every n-dimensional surface that exceed a threshold value. Each of the n-dimensional surfaces is described by a footprint that characterizes the respective record group as an online abstract group.

ESTIMATED SIL LEVELS AND RISK COMPARISONS FOR RELIEF VALVES AS A FUNCTION OF TIME-IN-SERVICE  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Risk-based inspection methods enable estimation of the probability of spring-operated relief valves failing on demand at the United States Department of Energy's Savannah River Site (SRS) in Aiken, South Carolina. The paper illustrates an approach based on application of the Frechet and Weibull distributions to SRS and Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) Process Equipment Reliability Database (PERD) proof test results. The methodology enables the estimation of ANSI/ISA-84.00.01 Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) as well as the potential change in SIL level due to modification of the maintenance schedule. Current SRS practices are reviewed and recommendations are made for extending inspection intervals. The paper compares risk-based inspection with specific SILs as maintenance intervals are adjusted. Groups of valves are identified in which maintenance times can be extended as well as different groups in which an increased safety margin may be needed.

CERN automatic audio-conference service  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Scientists from all over the world need to collaborate with CERN on a daily basis. They must be able to communicate effectively on their joint projects at any time; as a result telephone conferences have become indispensable and widely used. Managed by 6 operators, CERN already has more than 20000 hours and 5700 audio-conferences per year. However, the traditional telephone based audio-conference system needed to be modernized in three ways. Firstly, to provide the participants with more autonomy in the organization of their conferences; secondly, to eliminate the constraints of manual intervention by operators; and thirdly, to integrate the audio-conferences into a collaborative working framework. The large number, and hence cost, of the conferences prohibited externalization and so the CERN telecommunications team drew up a specification to implement a new system. It was decided to use a new commercial collaborative audio-conference solution based on the SIP protocol. The system was tested as the first European pilot and several improvements (such as billing, security, redundancy...) were implemented based on CERN's recommendations. The new automatic conference system has been operational since the second half of 2006. It is very popular for the users and has doubled the number of conferences in the past two years.

Recrystallization and modification of the stainless-steel surface relief under photonic heat load in powerful plasma discharges  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Targets made of ITER-grade 316L(N)-IG stainless steel and Russian-grade 12Cr18Ni10Ti stainless steel with a close composition were exposed at the QSPA-T plasma gun to plasma photonic radiation pulses simulating conditions of disruption mitigation in ITER. After a large number of pulses, modification of the stainless-steel surface was observed, such as the formation of a wavy structure, irregular roughness, and cracks on the target surface. X-ray and optic microscopic analyses of targets revealed changes in the orientation and dimensions of crystallites (grains) over a depth of up to 20 ?m for 316L(N)-IG stainless steel after 200 pulses and up to 40 ?m for 12Cr18Ni10Ti stainless steel after 50 pulses, which is significantly larger than the depth of the layer melted in one pulse (?10 ?m). In a series of 200 tests of ITER-grade 316L(N)-IG ITER stainless steel, a linear increase in the height of irregularity (roughness) with increasing number of pulses at a rate of up to ?1 ?m per pulse was observed. No alteration in the chemical composition of the stainless-steel surface in the series of tests was revealed. A model is developed that describes the formation of wavy irregularities on the melted metal surface with allowance for the nonlinear stage of instability of the melted layer with a vapor/plasma flow above it. A decisive factor in this case is the viscous flow of the melted metal from the troughs to tops of the wavy structure. The model predicts saturation of the growth of the wavy structure when its amplitude becomes comparable with its wavelength. Approaches to describing the observed stochastic relief and roughness of the stainless-steel surface formed in the series of tests are considered. The recurrence of the melting-solidification process in which mechanisms of the hill growth compete with the spreading of the material from the hills can result in the formation of a stochastic relief.

Automatic sample Dewar for MX beam-line  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

It is very common for crystals of large biological macromolecules to show considerable variation in quality of their diffraction. In order to increase the number of samples that are tested for diffraction quality before any full data collections at the ESRF*, an automatic sample Dewar has been implemented. Conception and performances of the Dewar are reported in this paper. The automatic sample Dewar has 240 samples capability with automatic loading/unloading ports. The storing Dewar is capable to work with robots and it can be integrated in a full automatic MX** beam-line. The samples are positioned in the front of the loading/unloading ports with and automatic rotating plate. A view port has been implemented for data matrix camera reading on each sample loaded in the Dewar. At last, the Dewar is insulated with polyurethane foam that keeps the liquid nitrogen consumption below 1.6 L/h. At last, the static insulation also makes vacuum equipment and maintenance unnecessary. This Dewar will be useful for increasing the number of samples tested in synchrotrons.

Program Your Thermostat for Automatic Savings Program Your Thermostat for Automatic Savings Program Your Thermostat for Automatic Savings December 23, 2008 - 4:00am Addthis Allison Casey Senior Communicator, NREL Did you know that you can save around 10% a year on your heating and cooling bills by simply turning your thermostat back 10°-15°F for eight hours? Sounds great, but I know when I'm rushing out the door, the last thing on my mind is turning down the thermostat. Luckily, programmable thermostats make it easy to save without much effort. In fact, once you get the thermostat installed and programmed to your schedule, you can stop thinking about it; your home is programmed to save. First, decide what to set your thermostat at when you are home and awake; 68°F is a good guideline in the winter. From there, program the thermostat

Composition pulling effect and strain relief mechanism in AlGaN/AlN distributed Bragg reflectors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report on the composition pulling effect and strain relief mechanism in AlGaN/AlN distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) grown on GaN template/{alpha}-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3}(0001) by metal organic chemical vapor deposition. The reciprocal space mapping contours reveal that these DBRs are coherently grown. Cross-section transmission electron microscopy image of the AlGaN/AlN DBRs and the energy-dispersive x-ray analysis indicate that an AlGaN layer with gradient Al composition is located between the Al{sub 0.4}Ga{sub 0.6}N and AlN layers along the [0001] direction. It is attributed to the fact that Ga atoms in AlGaN are pulled and segregated to the upper layer by the strain. The density of strain energy is estimated to reduce more than one order by forming this quasi-three-sublayer structure comparing to the designed bi-sublayer structure.

Impact of automatic switches on power distribution system reliability  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper quantitative impact of automatic switches on the reliability of power distribution systems is studied. Based on the characteristics of the studied system's topology, the reliability model is developed for the implementation of Monte Carlo simulation. Reliability indices on each load have been computed to obtain an overall reliability assessment of the system, and the sensitivity of the reliability indices to the location of automatic switches is also studied. Simulation results are used to illustrate the validity of the approach and are compared with the historical reliability records.

Technical evaluation report, TMI action NUREG-0737 (II.D.1), relief and safety valve testing, Comanche Peak, Unit 2, Docket No. 50-446  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the past, safety and relief valves installed in the primary coolant system of light water reactors have performed improperly. As a result, the authors of NUREG-0578 (TMI-2 Lessons Learned Task Force Status Report and Short-Term Recommendations) and, subsequently, NUREG-0737 (Clarification of TMI Action Plan Requirements) recommended development and completion of programs to do two things. First, the programs should reevaluate the functional performance capabilities of pressurized water reactor safety, relief, and block valves. Second, they should verify the integrity of the pressurizer safety and relief valve piping systems for normal, transient, and accident conditions. This report documents the review of those programs by EG&G Idaho, Inc. Specifically, this report documents the review of the Comanche Peak, Unit 2, Applicant response to the requirements of NUREG-0578 and NUREG-0737. This review found the Applicant provided an acceptable response reconfirming they met General Design Criteria 14, 15, and 30 of Appendix A to 10 CFR 50 for the subject equipment.

An automatic coastline detector for use with SAR images  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

SAR imagery for coastline detection has many potential advantages over conventional optical stereoscopic techniques. For example, SAR does not have restrictions on being collected during daylight or when there is no cloud cover. In addition, the techniques for coastline detection witth SAR images can be automated. In this paper, we present the algorithmic development of an automatic coastline detector for use with SAR imagery. Three main algorithms comprise the automatic coastline detection algorithm, The first algorithm considers the image pre-processing steps that must occur on the original image in order to accentuate the land/water boundary. The second algorithm automatically follows along the accentuated land/water boundary and produces a single-pixel-wide coastline. The third algorithm identifies islands and marks them. This report describes in detail the development of these three algorithms. Examples of imagery are used throughout the paper to illustrate the various steps in algorithms. Actual code is included in appendices. The algorithms presented are preliminary versions that can be applied to automatic coastline detection in SAR imagery. There are many variations and additions to the algorithms that can be made to improve robustness and automation, as required by a particular application.

Tracking software usage is important for HPC centers, computer vendors, code developers and funding agencies to provide more efficient and targeted software support, and to forecast needs and guide HPC software effort towards the Exascale era. However, accurately tracking software usage on HPC systems has been a challenging task. In this paper, we present a tool called Automatic Library Tracking Database (ALTD) that has been developed and put in production on several Cray systems. The ALTD infrastructure prototype automatically and transparently stores information about libraries linked into an application at compilation time and also the executables launched in a batch job. We will illustrate the usage of libraries, compilers and third party software applications on a system managed by the National Institute for Computational Sciences.

Pilot Study: Measurement of Room Illuminance to Assess Automatic Brightness  

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

Study: Measurement of Room Illuminance to Assess Automatic Brightness Study: Measurement of Room Illuminance to Assess Automatic Brightness Control in Televisions Title Pilot Study: Measurement of Room Illuminance to Assess Automatic Brightness Control in Televisions Publication Type Conference Proceedings Year of Publication 2012 Authors Greenblatt, Jeffery B., Mia Forbes Pirie, Louis-Benoit Desroches, Sally M. Donovan, Clancy Donnelly, Craig Billingsley, and Chris Calwell Pagination 13 Date Published August 12 Conference Location Berkeley Abstract Automatic brightness control (ABC) is an increasingly common feature found in newtelevisions (TVs) and computer monitors. ABC is intended to adjust TV screen brightness(luminance) according to the ambient light level (room illuminance). When implementedcorrectly, this can both reduce energy consumption and improve viewing quality. The currentENERGY STAR test procedure provides for a more favorable energy use rating for TVs withABC, by measuring power consumption at two light levels (0 and 300 lux) and reporting aweighted-average energy use. However, this and other studies suggest that these levels are notrepresentative of actual TV viewing conditions.As there were currently only limited data available concerning room illuminance, weundertook a small pilot study in 2011 to begin to answer two key questions: 1. To what extent doroom illuminance levels vary depending on the location of measurement (e.g., center of theroom, on the couch, or at the TV)? 2. What room illuminance conditions are prevalent whenpeople watch TV?We measured room illuminance in the homes of nine volunteers in California andColorado to begin addressing the above two questions. Although the study had the usualdrawbacks of a pilot (limited sample size, time duration, etc.), it has, nonetheless, yielded usefulresults. The study shows definitively that there is large variability between measurements madeat different locations in the room and, therefore, that location of room illuminance measurementsis critical. Moreover, the majority (over 75%) of TV viewing occurred at illuminance levels ofless than 50 lux (though measurements of up to several hundred lux were also recorded), a resultthat was consistent with subsequent larger-scale studies. This type of information can helpdetermine how ABC-enabled TVs should be tested to best represent actual viewing conditions.

A wind energy plant is protected against damage from high winds by permitting the propeller assembly thereof to fold with respect to the tail assembly of the plant when the wind velocity with respect to the plant exceeds a predetermined value. Return of the propeller assembly to a wind facing orientation is controlled to prevent oscillating or whipping in gusty or turbulent winds. A safety system is included to control plant shutdown, and automatically shuts down the plant if the plant is being subjected to excessive vibration.

A propeller hub carries pivotally-mounted blades that are linked to a spring-loaded collar on the propeller shaft for automatic coning and feathering under predetermined high velocity movement along the propeller shaft to change the blade pitch angle during low wind velocity conditions. An airfoil support mounts a propeller shaft and turns therewith to reduce tower shadow effects. This is called a ''down-wind system'' meaning the propeller is behind the tower and causes the assembly to rotate into the wind without a tail vane.

Automatic Testing Tool for OSCAR Using System-level Virtualization  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To ensure quality, software development has to include testing mechanisms. OSCAR today supports several Linux distributions and several architectures. In such a context, the release cycle suffers of a important overhead created by the testing and stabilization phase. To address this issue, an approach is to implement a tool for automatic testing. This paper presents such a tool which is based on the OSCAR command line interface. This tool, based on system-level virtualization techniques, creates a virtual cluster to perform the test. This approach has the benefit of not corrupting the system of the physical machine and guarantee that the environment used for testing has not been corrupted before testing.

Automatic CNC Part Programming for through Hole Drilling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper describes a novel method for automatic generation of process plans and numerical control (NC) part programs from STEP data files. Using proposed system, it is possible to achieve fully automation of recognition of through hole features, generation of process plans and NC part programs. Thus, it becomes possible to go from neutral file to finished product in a fully automated fashion. The algorithms have been implemented on mini-computer to process product data, and display recognized hole features, process plans and creates output files containing NC part programs. These NC part programs are tested through BMV45TC24 CNC Vertical Machining Centers. The results are satisfactory.

Rapid automatic keyword extraction for information retrieval and analysis  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Methods and systems for rapid automatic keyword extraction for information retrieval and analysis. Embodiments can include parsing words in an individual document by delimiters, stop words, or both in order to identify candidate keywords. Word scores for each word within the candidate keywords are then calculated based on a function of co-occurrence degree, co-occurrence frequency, or both.

Development of an automatic heliostat cleaning system. Final technical report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An automatic washing system was designed consisting of a water treatment system, a pressurized underground water distribution system, an automatic spray washing module for each heliostat, a water collection system, and appropriate controls to operate this equipment. In order to determine the required values for the various washing parameters, a series of washing tests was undertaken in which mirrors were soiled and then cleaned by a high pressure water spray. Reflectivity was measured for the clean, soiled and washed conditions to determine the effectiveness of the cleaning. A heliostat spray module was constructed and operated mainly to obtain information on the mechanical operation of one concept. This testing showed that this system was generally satisfactory, but did show some areas for improvement. Water distribution and waste water systems were designed and evaluated with the main conclusion that conventional waste water collection is complex and the most expensive part of the system. The total system is shown to be cost effective if site meteorological conditions do not supply a large number of cycles of natural cleaning occurrences. Continued development of this concept by constructing a small scale washing system within an existing heliostat field is recommended.

Reactor protection system with automatic self-testing and diagnostic  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A reactor protection system is disclosed having four divisions, with quad redundant sensors for each scram parameter providing input to four independent microprocessor-based electronic chassis. Each electronic chassis acquires the scram parameter data from its own sensor, digitizes the information, and then transmits the sensor reading to the other three electronic chassis via optical fibers. To increase system availability and reduce false scrams, the reactor protection system employs two levels of voting on a need for reactor scram. The electronic chassis perform software divisional data processing, vote 2/3 with spare based upon information from all four sensors, and send the divisional scram signals to the hardware logic panel, which performs a 2/4 division vote on whether or not to initiate a reactor scram. Each chassis makes a divisional scram decision based on data from all sensors. Automatic detection and discrimination against failed sensors allows the reactor protection system to automatically enter a known state when sensor failures occur. Cross communication of sensor readings allows comparison of four theoretically ``identical`` values. This permits identification of sensor errors such as drift or malfunction. A diagnostic request for service is issued for errant sensor data. Automated self test and diagnostic monitoring, sensor input through output relay logic, virtually eliminate the need for manual surveillance testing. This provides an ability for each division to cross-check all divisions and to sense failures of the hardware logic. 16 figs.

Automatic stellar spectral parameterization pipeline for LAMOST survey  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The Large Sky Area Multi-Object Fiber Spectroscopic Telescope (LAMOST) project performed its five year formal survey since Sep. 2012, already fulfilled the pilot survey and the 1st two years general survey with an output - spectroscopic data archive containing about 3.5 million observations. One of the scientific objectives of the project is for better understanding the structure and evolution of the Milky Way. Thus, credible derivation of the physical properties of the stars plays a key role for the exploration. We developed and implemented the LAMOST stellar parameter pipeline (LASP) which can automatically determine the fundamental stellar atmospheric parameters (effective temperature Teff, surface gravity log g, metallicity [Fe/H], radial velocity Vr) for late A, FGK type stars observed during the survey. An overview of the LASP, including the strategy, the algorithm and the process is presented in this work.

Identifying web navigation behaviour and patterns automatically from clickstream data  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A user's clickstream, such as that which is found in server-side logs, can be a rich source of data concerning the ways in which a user navigates a site, but the volume and level of detail found in these logs makes it difficult to identify and categorise specific navigational patterns. In this paper, we describe the three-step automatic pattern discovery (APD) method, a tool that utilises sequential mining to extract a user's navigation route based on two levels of basic navigational elements. This paper contains descriptions of two studies in which the APD was used; the first makes use of APD to analyse the usage of an educational website; the second describes how APD was used to improve the design of a technical support website in a university department.

Automatic generation of executable communication specifications from parallel applications  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Portable parallel benchmarks are widely used and highly effective for (a) the evaluation, analysis and procurement of high-performance computing (HPC) systems and (b) quantifying the potential benefits of porting applications for new hardware platforms. Yet, past techniques to synthetically parameterized hand-coded HPC benchmarks prove insufficient for today's rapidly-evolving scientific codes particularly when subject to multi-scale science modeling or when utilizing domain-specific libraries. To address these problems, this work contributes novel methods to automatically generate highly portable and customizable communication benchmarks from HPC applications. We utilize ScalaTrace, a lossless, yet scalable, parallel application tracing framework to collect selected aspects of the run-time behavior of HPC applications, including communication operations and execution time, while abstracting away the details of the computation proper. We subsequently generate benchmarks with identical run-time behavior from the collected traces. A unique feature of our approach is that we generate benchmarks in CONCEPTUAL, a domain-specific language that enables the expression of sophisticated communication patterns using a rich and easily understandable grammar yet compiles to ordinary C + MPI. Experimental results demonstrate that the generated benchmarks are able to preserve the run-time behavior - including both the communication pattern and the execution time - of the original applications. Such automated benchmark generation is particularly valuable for proprietary, export-controlled, or classified application codes: when supplied to a third party. Our auto-generated benchmarks ensure performance fidelity but without the risks associated with releasing the original code. This ability to automatically generate performance-accurate benchmarks from parallel applications is novel and without any precedence, to our knowledge.

Automatic Detection of Expanding HI Shells Using Artificial Neural Networks  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The identification of expanding HI shells is difficult because of their variable morphological characteristics. The detection of HI bubbles on a global scale therefore never has been attempted. In this paper, an automatic detector for expanding HI shells is presented. The detection is based on the more stable dynamical characteristics of expanding shells and is performed in two stages. The first one is the recognition of the dynamical signature of an expanding bubble in the velocity spectra, based on the classification of an artificial neural network. The pixels associated with these recognized spectra are identified on each velocity channel. The second stage consists in looking for concentrations of those pixels that were firstly pointed out, and to decide if they are potential detections by morphological and 21-cm emission variation considerations. Two test bubbles are correctly detected and a potentially new case of shell that is visually very convincing is discovered. About 0.6% of the surveyed pixels are identified as part of a bubble. These may be false detections, but still constitute regions of space with high probability of finding an expanding shell. The subsequent search field is thus significantly reduced. We intend to conduct in the near future a large scale HI shells detection over the Perseus Arm using our detector.

Development of tools for automatic generation of PLC code  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

This Master thesis was performed at CERN and more specifically in the EN-ICE-PLC section. The Thesis describes the integration of two PLC platforms, that are based on CODESYS development tool, to the CERN defined industrial framework, UNICOS. CODESYS is a development tool for PLC programming, based on IEC 61131-3 standard, and is adopted by many PLC manufacturers. The two PLC development environments are, the SoMachine from Schneider and the TwinCAT from Beckhoff. The two CODESYS compatible PLCs, should be controlled by the SCADA system of Siemens, WinCC OA. The framework includes a library of Function Blocks (objects) for the PLC programs and a software for automatic generation of the PLC code based on this library, called UAB. The integration aimed to give a solution that is shared by both PLC platforms and was based on the PLCOpen XML scheme. The developed tools were demonstrated by creating a control application for both PLC environments and testing of the behavior of the code of the library.

Kernel for modular robot applications: Automatic modeling techniques  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A modular robotic system consists of standardized joint and link units that an be assembled into various kinematic configurations for different types of tasks. For the control and simulation of such a system, manual derivation of the kinematic and dynamic models, as well as the error model for kinematic calibration, require tremendous effort, because the models constantly change as the robot geometry is altered after module reconfiguration. This paper presents a frame-work to facilitate the model-generation procedure for the control and simulation of the modular robot system. A graph technique, termed kinematic graphs and realized through assembly incidence matrices (AIM), is introduced to represent the module-assembly sequence and robot geometry. The kinematics and dynamics are formulated based on a local representation of the theory of lie groups and Lie algebras. The automatic model-generation procedure starts with a given assembly graph of the modular robot. Kinematic, dynamic, and error models of the robot are then established, based on the local representations and iterative graph-traversing algorithms. This approach can be applied to a modular robot with both serial and branch-type geometries, and arbitrary degrees of freedom. Furthermore, the AIM of the robot naturally leads to solving the task-oriented optimal configuration problem in modular robots. There is no need to maintain a huge library of robot models, and the footprint of the overall software system can be reduced.

However the conventional BPNN has the problems of slow learning and easy to involve into the local minimum. We use a revised algorithm to improve the conventional BPNN that can overcome these problems. A well constructed thesaurus has been recognized as valuable tool in the effective operation of document categorization, it overcome some problem for the document categorization based on bag of words which ignored the relationship between words. To investigate the effectiveness of our method, we conducted the experiments on the standard Reuter-21578. The experimental results show that the proposed model was able to achieve higher categorization effectiveness as measured by the precision, recall and F-measure.

Automatic ball bar for a coordinate measuring machine  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

An automatic ball bar for a coordinate measuring machine determines the accuracy of a coordinate measuring machine having at least one servo drive. The apparatus comprises a first and second gauge ball connected by a telescoping rigid member. The rigid member includes a switch such that inward radial movement of the second gauge ball relative to the first gauge ball causes activation of the switch. The first gauge ball is secured in a first magnetic socket assembly in order to maintain the first gauge ball at a fixed location with respect to the coordinate measuring machine. A second magnetic socket assembly secures the second gauge ball to the arm or probe holder of the coordinate measuring machine. The second gauge ball is then directed by the coordinate measuring machine to move radially inward from a point just beyond the length of the ball bar until the switch is activated. Upon switch activation, the position of the coordinate measuring machine is determined and compared to known ball bar length such that the accuracy of the coordinate measuring machine can be determined. 5 figs.

Automatic control in petroleum, petrochemical and desalination industries  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This is the second IFAC workshop on the subject of Automatic Control in Oil and Desalination Industries. Presentations and discussions underscored the priorities of oil and desalination industries in getting better overall quality, improved energy use, lower cost, and better safety and security. These factors will take on added importance to oil exporting nations that have been hit recently by large oil price declines, which are forcing them to improve the efficiency of their industries and rationalize all new capital expenditures. Papers presented at the workshop included reviews of theoretical developments in control and research in modelling, optimization, instrumentation and control. They included the latest developments in applications of control systems to petroleum, petrochemical and desalination industries such as refineries, multi-stage flash desalination, chemical reactors, and bioreactors. The papers covered the latest in the applications of adaptive control, robust control, decentralized control, bilinear control, measurement techniques, plant optimization and maintenance, and artificial intelligence. Several case studies on modernization of refineries and controls and its economics were included. Two panel discussions, on new projects at the Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) and needs for control systems were held. Participation in the workshop came from the oil industry and academic institutions.

Computer controlled synchronous shifting of an automatic transmission  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A multiple forward speed automatic transmission produces its lowest forward speed ratio when a hydraulic clutch and hydraulic brake are disengaged and a one-way clutch connects a ring gear to the transmission casing. Second forward speed ratio results when the hydraulic clutch is engaged to connect the ring gear to the planetary carrier of a second gear set. Reverse drive and regenerative operation result when an hydraulic brake fixes the planetary and the direction of power flow is reversed. Various sensors produce signals representing the torque at the output of the transmission or drive wheels, the speed of the power source, and the hydraulic pressure applied to a clutch and brake. A control algorithm produces input data representing a commanded upshift, a commanded downshift, a commanded transmission output torque, and commanded power source speed. A microprocessor processes the inputs and produces a response to them in accordance with the execution of a control algorithm. Output or response signals cause selective engagement and disengagement of the clutch and brake at a rate that satisfies the requirements for a short gear ratio change and smooth torque transfer between the friction elements.

Automatic fault detection on BIPV systems without solar irradiation data  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

BIPV systems are small PV generation units spread out over the territory, and whose characteristics are very diverse. This makes difficult a cost-effective procedure for monitoring, fault detection, performance analyses, operation and maintenance. As a result, many problems affecting BIPV systems go undetected. In order to carry out effective automatic fault detection procedures, we need a performance indicator that is reliable and that can be applied on many PV systems at a very low cost. The existing approaches for analyzing the performance of PV systems are often based on the Performance Ratio (PR), whose accuracy depends on good solar irradiation data, which in turn can be very difficult to obtain or cost-prohibitive for the BIPV owner. We present an alternative fault detection procedure based on a performance indicator that can be constructed on the sole basis of the energy production data measured at the BIPV systems. This procedure does not require the input of operating conditions data, such as solar ...

EVALUATION OF SPRING OPERATED RELIEF VALVE MAINTENANCE INTERVALS AND EXTENSION OF MAINTENANCE TIMES USING A WEIBULL ANALYSIS WITH MODIFIED BAYESIAN UPDATING  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Savannah River Site (SRS) spring operated pressure relief valve (SORV) maintenance intervals were evaluated using an approach provided by the American Petroleum Institute (API RP 581) for risk-based inspection technology (RBI). In addition, the impact of extending the inspection schedule was evaluated using Monte Carlo Simulation (MCS). The API RP 581 approach is characterized as a Weibull analysis with modified Bayesian updating provided by SRS SORV proof testing experience. Initial Weibull parameter estimates were updated as per SRS's historical proof test records contained in the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) Process Equipment Reliability Database (PERD). The API RP 581 methodology was used to estimate the SORV's probability of failing on demand (PFD), and the annual expected risk. The API RP 581 methodology indicates that the current SRS maintenance plan is conservative. Cost savings may be attained in certain mild service applications that present low PFD and overall risk. Current practices are reviewed and recommendations are made for extending inspection intervals. The paper gives an illustration of the inspection costs versus the associated risks by using API RP 581 Risk Based Inspection (RBI) Technology. A cost effective maintenance frequency balancing both financial risk and inspection cost is demonstrated.

OpenAD/F: Automatic Differentiation of Fortran Codes OpenAD/F: Automatic Differentiation of Fortran Codes OpenAD/F: Automatic Differentiation of Fortran Codes The OpenAD/F project seeks to develop a modular, open-source tool for the automatic generation of adjoint code from Fortran 95 source code. Discrete adjoint computations are used for sensitivity analysis and to provide the gradients used in geophysical state estimation. Because derivatives are needed with respect to millions or billions of independent variables, finite different approximations are impractical: a gradient computation that would take minutes or hours using an adjoint computation would take months or years using finite differences.

Technical evaluation report TMI action -- NUREG-0737 (II.D.1). Relief and safety valve testing, Watts Bar Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2 (Dockets 50-390 and 50-391)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In the past, safety and relief valves installed in the primary coolant system of light water reactors have performed improperly. As a result, the authors of NUREG-0578 (TMI-2 Lessons Learned Task Force Status Report and Short-Term Recommendations) and, subsequently, NUREG-0737 (Clarification of TMI Action Plan Requirements) recommended development and completion of programs to do two things. First, they should reevaluate the functional performance capabilities of pressurized water reactor safety, relief, and block valves. Second, they should verify the integrity of the pressurizer safety and relief valve piping systems for normal, transient, and accident conditions. This report documents the review of those programs by Lockheed Idaho Technologies Company. Specifically, this report documents the review of the Watts Bar Nuclear Plant, Units 1 and 2, Applicant response to the requirements of NUREG-0578 and NUREG-0737. This review found the Applicant provided an acceptable response reconfirming they met General Design Criteria 14, 15, and 30 of Appendix A to 10 CFR 50 for the subject equipment. It should also be noted Lockheed Idaho performed this review for both Units 1 and 2. However, the applicability of this review to Unit 2 depends on verifying that the Unit 2 as-built system conforms to the Unit 1 design reviewed in this report.

The Automatic Real-Time GRB Pipeline of the 2-m Liverpool Telescope  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The 2-m Liverpool Telescope (LT), owned by Liverpool John Moores University, is located in La Palma (Canary Islands) and operates in fully robotic mode. In 2005, the LT began conducting an automatic GRB follow-up program. On receiving an automatic GRB alert from a Gamma-Ray Observatory (Swift, INTEGRAL, HETE-II, IPN) the LT initiates a special override mode that conducts follow-up observations within 2-3 min of the GRB onset. This follow-up procedure begins with an initial sequence of short (10-s) exposures acquired through an r' band filter. These images are reduced, analyzed and interpreted automatically using pipeline software developed by our team called "LT-TRAP" (Liverpool Telescope Transient Rapid Analysis Pipeline); the automatic detection and successful identification of an unknown and potentially fading optical transient triggers a subsequent multi-color imaging sequence. In the case of a candidate brighter than r'=15, either a polarimetric (from 2006) or a spectroscopic observation (from 2007) will be triggered on the LT. If no candidate is identified, the telescope continues to obtain z', r' and i' band imaging with increasingly longer exposure times. Here we present a detailed description of the LT-TRAP and briefly discuss the illustrative case of the afterglow of GRB 050502a, whose automatic identification by the LT just 3 min after the GRB, led to the acquisition of the first early-time (< 1 hr) multi-color light curve of a GRB afterglow.

Analyzing the results from the data collected will help to identify, for example, the most frequently used and the least used libraries and codes, and those users that are using deprecated libraries or applications. We will illustrate the usage of libraries and executables on the Cray XT platforms hosted at the National Institute for Computational Sciences and the Oak Ridge Leadership Computing Facility (both located at Oak Ridge National Laboratory).

Design of dynamically updated automatic ontology for mobile phone information retrieval system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper focuses on the construction of an automatic ontology tree which is capable of dynamically updating information for efficient management of up-to-date information in the domain of mobile phones. The proposed system takes the URL of the most relevant website as input. It acquires information from web pages that are related to the domain and based on those information automatically constructs the ontology tree. To make the ontology tree up-to-date periodic comparison of the values are made with information available over the internet, outdated information is pruned and updates are merged into the ontology tree dynamically. The constructed ontology tree can be queried with domain-related queries and the ontology tree provides relevant result for the query. The proposed system is suited for domains that make frequent updates because it takes special care on dynamically monitoring changes on the web and performing updates on par with it.

Automatic high-fidelity 3D road network modeling based on 2D GIS data  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Many computer applications such as racing games and driving simulations demand high-fidelity 3D road network models. However, few methods exist for the automatic generation of 3D realistic road networks, especially for those in the real world. On the other hand, vast 2D road network data in various geographical information systems (GIS) have been collected in the past and are used by a wide range of applications. A method that can automatically produce 3D high-fidelity road network models from 2D real road GIS data will significantly reduce both the labor and time cost, and greatly benefit applications involving road networks. Based on a set of carefully selected civil engineering rules for road design, this paper proposes a novel approach that transforms existing road GIS data that contain only 2D road centerline information into high-fidelity 3D road network models. The proposed method consists of several major components, including road GIS data preprocessing, 3D centerline modeling, and 3D geometric modeling. With this approach, basic road elements such as road segments, road intersections and traffic interchanges are generated automatically to compose sophisticated road networks in a seamless manner. Results show that this approach provides a rapid and efficient 3D road modeling method for applications that have stringent requirements on high-fidelity road models.

Automatic building of a web-like structure based on thermoplastic adhesive  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Animals build structures to extend their control over certain aspects of the environment; e.g., orb-weaver spiders build webs to capture prey, etc. Inspired by this behaviour of animals, we attempt to develop robotics technology that allows a robot to automatically builds structures to help it accomplish certain tasks. In this paper we show automatic building of a web-like structure with a robot arm based on thermoplastic adhesive (TPA) material. The material properties of TPA, such as elasticity, adhesiveness, and low melting temperature, make it possible for a robot to form threads across an open space by an extrusion-drawing process and then combine several of these threads into a web-like structure. The problems addressed here are discovering which parameters determine the thickness of a thread and determining how web-like structures may be used for certain tasks. We first present a model for the extrusion and the drawing of TPA threads which also includes the temperature-dependent material properties. The model verification result shows that the increasing relative surface area of the TPA thread as it is drawn thinner increases the heat loss of the thread, and that by controlling how quickly the thread is drawn, a range of diameters can be achieved from 0.20.75 mm. We then present a method based on a generalized nonlinear finite element truss model. The model was validated and could predict the deformation of various web-like structures when payloads are added. At the end, we demonstrate automatic building of a web-like structure for payload bearing.

Automatic synthesis of quantum circuits for point addition on ordinary binary elliptic curves  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Implementing the group arithmetic is a cost-critical task when designing quantum circuits for Shor's algorithm to solve the discrete logarithm problem. We introduce a tool for the automatic generation of addition circuits for ordinary binary elliptic curves, a prominent platform group for digital signatures. Our Python software generates circuit descriptions that, without increasing the number of qubits or T-depth, involve less than 39% of the number of T-gates in the best previous construction. The software also optimizes the (CNOT) depth for GF(2)-linear operations by means of suitable graph colorings.

Fully-automatic laser welding and micro-sculpting with universal in situ inline coherent imaging  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Though new affordable high power laser technologies make possible many processing applications in science and industry, depth control remains a serious technical challenge. Here we show that inline coherent imaging, with line rates up to 312 kHz and microsecond-duration capture times, is capable of directly measuring laser penetration depth in a process as violent as kW-class keyhole welding. We exploit ICI's high speed, high dynamic range and robustness to interference from other optical sources to achieve fully automatic, adaptive control of laser welding as well as ablation, achieving micron-scale sculpting in vastly different heterogeneous biological materials.

The 2-m robotic Liverpool Telescope (LT) is ideally suited to the rapid follow-up of unpredictable and transient events such as GRBs. Our GRB follow-up strategy is designed to identify optical/IR counterparts in real time; it involves the automatic triggering of initial observations, on receipt of an alert from Gamma Ray Observatories HETE-2, INTEGRAL and Swift, followed by automated data reduction, analysis, OT identification and subsequent observing mode choice. The lack of human intervention in this process requires robustness at all stages of the procedure. Here we describe the telescope, its instrumentation and GRB pipeline.

Methods and systems for automatically generating lists of stop words for information retrieval and analysis. Generation of the stop words can include providing a corpus of documents and a plurality of keywords. From the corpus of documents, a term list of all terms is constructed and both a keyword adjacency frequency and a keyword frequency are determined. If a ratio of the keyword adjacency frequency to the keyword frequency for a particular term on the term list is less than a predetermined value, then that term is excluded from the term list. The resulting term list is truncated based on predetermined criteria to form a stop word list.

FASER (Formal and Automatic Security Enforcement by Rewriting) by BPA algebra with test  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A correct and a cheap enforcement of security policies on information systems is a major problem for most of our institutions. In previous works, we introduced a program rewriting approach that can automatically and formally enforce security policies on untrusted programs. The program and the security policy are specified as processes in an extended version of BPA (Basic Process Algebra). After that, the enforcement problem is turned to the resolution of a linear system. In this paper, we extend the expressiveness of the algebra by adding tests which is an important step towards enforcing security policies on more real interesting systems.

Automatic Transformation of MPI Programs to Asynchronous, Graph-Driven Form  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The goals of this project are to develop new, scalable, high-fidelity algorithms for atomic-level simulations and program transformations that automatically restructure existing applications, enabling them to scale forward to Petascale systems and beyond. The techniques enable legacy MPI application code to exploit greater parallelism though increased latency hiding and improved workload assignment. The techniques were successfully demonstrated on high-end scalable systems located at DOE laboratories. Besides the automatic MPI program transformations efforts, the project also developed several new scalable algorithms for ab-initio molecular dynamics, including new massively parallel algorithms for hybrid DFT and new parallel in time algorithms for molecular dynamics and ab-initio molecular dynamics. These algorithms were shown to scale to very large number of cores, and they were designed to work in the latency hiding framework developed in this project. The effectiveness of the developments was enhanced by the direct application to real grand challenge simulation problems covering a wide range of technologically important applications, time scales and accuracies. These included the simulation of the electronic structure of mineral/fluid interfaces, the very accurate simulation of chemical reactions in microsolvated environments, and the simulation of chemical behavior in very large enzyme reactions.

Automatic thesaurus construction for spam filtering using revised back propagation neural network  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Email has become one of the fastest and most economical forms of communication. Email is also one of the most ubiquitous and pervasive applications used on a daily basis by millions of people worldwide. However, the increase in email users has resulted in a dramatic increase in spam emails during the past few years. This paper proposes a new spam filtering system using revised back propagation (RBP) neural network and automatic thesaurus construction. The conventional back propagation (BP) neural network has slow learning speed and is prone to trap into a local minimum, so it will lead to poor performance and efficiency. The authors present in this paper the RBP neural network to overcome the limitations of the conventional BP neural network. A well constructed thesaurus has been recognized as a valuable tool in the effective operation of text classification, it can also overcome the problems in keyword-based spam filters which ignore the relationship between words. The authors conduct the experiments on Ling-Spam corpus. Experimental results show that the proposed spam filtering system is able to achieve higher performance, especially for the combination of RBP neural network and automatic thesaurus construction.

Automatic Diabetic Macular Edema Detection in Fundus Images Using Publicly Available Datasets  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Diabetic macular edema (DME) is a common vision threatening complication of diabetic retinopathy. In a large scale screening environment DME can be assessed by detecting exudates (a type of bright lesions) in fundus images. In this work, we introduce a new methodology for diagnosis of DME using a novel set of features based on colour, wavelet decomposition and automatic lesion segmentation. These features are employed to train a classifier able to automatically diagnose DME. We present a new publicly available dataset with ground-truth data containing 169 patients from various ethnic groups and levels of DME. This and other two publicly available datasets are employed to evaluate our algorithm. We are able to achieve diagnosis performance comparable to retina experts on the MESSIDOR (an independently labelled dataset with 1200 images) with cross-dataset testing. Our algorithm is robust to segmentation uncertainties, does not need ground truth at lesion level, and is very fast, generating a diagnosis on an average of 4.4 seconds per image on an 2.6 GHz platform with an unoptimised Matlab implementation.

Dentalmaps: Automatic Dental Delineation for Radiotherapy Planning in Head-and-Neck Cancer  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: To propose an automatic atlas-based segmentation framework of the dental structures, called Dentalmaps, and to assess its accuracy and relevance to guide dental care in the context of intensity-modulated radiotherapy. Methods and Materials: A multi-atlas-based segmentation, less sensitive to artifacts than previously published head-and-neck segmentation methods, was used. The manual segmentations of a 21-patient database were first deformed onto the query using nonlinear registrations with the training images and then fused to estimate the consensus segmentation of the query. Results: The framework was evaluated with a leave-one-out protocol. The maximum doses estimated using manual contours were considered as ground truth and compared with the maximum doses estimated using automatic contours. The dose estimation error was within 2-Gy accuracy in 75% of cases (with a median of 0.9 Gy), whereas it was within 2-Gy accuracy in 30% of cases only with the visual estimation method without any contour, which is the routine practice procedure. Conclusions: Dose estimates using this framework were more accurate than visual estimates without dental contour. Dentalmaps represents a useful documentation and communication tool between radiation oncologists and dentists in routine practice. Prospective multicenter assessment is underway on patients extrinsic to the database.

Field test of a high efficiency, automatic defrost refrigerator-freezer  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes the market evaluation and field test portion of a program to design, develop, and demonstrate a high efficiency, automatic defrosting refrigerator-freezer for the residential market. After the successful completion of Phase I of the program, which concentrated on the design, construction, and laboratory testing of a 453 1 (16 ft/sup 3/) high-efficiency refrigerator-freezer prototype, Phase II was initiated in February 1979 to evaluate the sales potential and performance of the high-efficiency refrigerator concept under field conditions, as a necessary step in creating a product that was both manufacturable and marketable. In Phase I, a survey of food consumption and storage trends, family size, and consumer buying habits led to a sales-weighted average-capacity forecast for 1985 of approximately 453 1 (16 ft/sup 3/) and identification of the top-mount, automatic defrosting refrigerator as the projected sales leader. To meet this market demand, a 453 1 (16 ft/sup 3/) top-mount was selected as the baseline for the Phase I design and development. In Phase II, a 509 1 (18 ft/sup 3/) unit using Phase I technology was chosen for the field test, since the slightly larger model better fit the participating manufacturer's new product development efforts and market.

2011 Status of the Automatic Alignment System for the National Ignition Facility  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Automated alignment for the National Ignition Facility (NIF) is accomplished using a large-scale parallel control system that directs 192 laser beams along the 300-m optical path. The beams are then focused down to a 50-micron spot in the middle of the target chamber. The entire process is completed in less than 50 minutes. The alignment system commands 9,000 stepping motors for highly accurate adjustment of mirrors and other optics. 41 control loops per beamline perform parallel processing services running on a LINUX cluster to analyze high-resolution images of the beams and their references. This paper describes the status the NIF automatic alignment system and the challenges encountered as NIF development has transitioned from building the laser, to becoming a research project supporting a 24 hour, 7 day laser facility. NIF is now a continuously operated system where performance monitoring is increasingly more critical for operation, maintenance, and commissioning tasks. Equipment wear and the effects of high energy neutrons from fusion experiments are issues which alter alignment efficiency and accuracy. New sensors needing automatic alignment assistance are common. System modifications to improve efficiency and accuracy are prevalent. Handling these evolving alignment and maintenance needs while minimizing the impact on NIF experiment schedule is expected to be an on-going challenge for the planned 30 year operational life of NIF.

Automatic Generation of Data Types for Classification of Deep Web Sources  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A Service Class Description (SCD) is an effective meta-data based approach for discovering Deep Web sources whose data exhibit some regular patterns. However, it is tedious and error prone to create an SCD description manually. Moreover, a manually created SCD is not adaptive to the frequent changes of Web sources. It requires its creator to identify all the possible input and output types of a service a priori. In many domains, it is impossible to exhaustively list all the possible input and output data types of a source in advance. In this paper, we describe machine learning approaches for automatic generation of the data types of an SCD. We propose two different approaches for learning data types of a class of Web sources. The Brute-Force Learner is able to generate data types that can achieve high recall, but with low precision. The Clustering-based Learner generates data types that have a high precision rate, but with a lower recall rate. We demonstrate the feasibility of these two learning-based solutions for automatic generation of data types for citation Web sources and presented a quantitative evaluation of these two solutions.

A portable, automatic SNM monitor for nuclear safeguards: Development, evaluation, and applications  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The portable SNM monitor is a lightweight, full-size, automatic monitor, suitable for temporary service (such as demonstrations or for use during maintenance) or as a permanent replacement for hand- held monitors. The authors based the monitor on the TSA Systems, Ltd., modular SNM monitor design and, through evaluation and improvement of the commercial modules, obtained adequate sensitivity in a single- cabinet monitor that is easily portable. Complete monitoring of pedestrians with a single detector cabinet is achieved by requiring the pedestrian to stand in front of the detectors and turn around through 360 deg while being observed by a security inspector. The monitor is available commercially as the TSA Systems Model PMD-701, and it is beginning to be used in both temporary and permanent applications.

PWR's xenon oscillation control through a fuzzy expert system automatically designed by means of genetic programming  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This work proposes the use of genetic programming (GP) for automatic design of a fuzzy expert system aimed to provide the control of axial xenon oscillations in pressurized water reactors (PWRs). The control methodology is based on three axial offsets of xenon (AOx), iodine (AOi) and neutron flux (AOf), effectively used in former work. Simulations were made using a two-point xenon oscillation model, which employs the non-linear xenon and iodine balance equations and the one group, one-dimensional neutron diffusion equation, with non-linear power reactivity feedback, also proposed in the literature. Results have demonstrated the ability of the GP in finding a good fuzzy strategy, which can effectively control the axial xenon oscillations.

This enables one to take into account the large scale discrepancies in terms of resolution between the different bodies involved in the simulation, with minimum memory requirements. Two different conversions from the octree to Cartesian grids are proposed: the first one generates Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) type grid systems, and the second one generates abutting or minimally overlapping Cartesian grid set. We also introduce an algorithm to control the number of points at each adaptation, that automatically determines relevant values of the refinement indicator driving the grid refinement and coarsening. An application to a wing tip vortex computation assesses the capability of the method to capture accurately the flow features.

Algorithm Summary and Evaluation: Automatic Implementation of Ringdown Analysis for Electromechanical Mode Identification from Phasor Measurements  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Small signal stability problems are one of the major threats to grid stability and reliability. Prony analysis has been successfully applied on ringdown data to monitor electromechanical modes of a power system using phasor measurement unit (PMU) data. To facilitate an on-line application of mode estimation, this paper develops a recursive algorithm for implementing Prony analysis and proposed an oscillation detection method to detect ringdown data in real time. By automatically detecting ringdown data, the proposed method helps guarantee that Prony analysis is applied properly and timely on the ringdown data. Thus, the mode estimation results can be performed reliably and timely. The proposed method is tested using Monte Carlo simulations based on a 17-machine model and is shown to be able to properly identify the oscillation data for on-line application of Prony analysis. In addition, the proposed method is applied to field measurement data from WECC to show the performance of the proposed algorithm.

An Automatic Impact-based Delamination Detection System for Concrete Bridge Decks  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Delamination of concrete bridge decks is a commonly observed distress in corrosive environments. In traditional acoustic inspection methods, delamination is assessed by the "hollowness" of the sound created by impacting the bridge deck with a hammer or bar or by dragging a chain where the signals are often contaminated by ambient traffic noise and the detection is highly subjective. In the proposed method, a modified version of independent component analysis (ICA) is used to filter the traffic noise. To eliminate subjectivity, Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCC) are used as features for detection and the delamination is detected by a radial basis function (RBF) neural network. Results from both experimental and field data suggest that the proposed methods id noise robust and has satisfactory performance. The methods can also detect the delamination of repair patches and concrete below the repair patches. The algorithms were incorporated into an automatic impact-bases delamination detection (AIDD) system for field application.

Automatic image analysis for detecting and quantifying gamma-ray sources in coded-aperture images  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The authors report the development of an automatic image analysis system that detects gamma-ray source regions in images obtained from a coded aperture, gamma-ray imager. The number of gamma sources in the image is not known prior to analysis. The system counts the number (K) of gamma sources detected in the image and estimates the lower bound for the probability that the number of sources in the image is K. The system consists of a two-stage pattern classification scheme in which the probabilistic neural network is used in the supervised learning mode. The algorithms were developed and tested using real gamma-ray images from controlled experiments in which the number and location of depleted uranium source disks in the scene are known. The novelty of the work lies in the creative combination of algorithms and the successful application of the algorithms to real images of gamma-ray sources.

Application of multi-variable control for automatic frequency controller of HVDC transmission system  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In an HVDC transmission system that links two ac power systems, the automatic frequency controller (AFC) calculates power to be interchanged between the two ac systems according to their frequencies thereby improving the frequency characteristics of the two power systems. This paper introduces a newly developed dc AFC system, which applies a multi-variable control to the dc system-based frequency control. It is capable of controlling the frequencies of the two ac systems optimally while maintaining their stability. This system was developed for one of Japan's HVDC transmission facilities and produced good results in a combined test using a power system simulator. The field installation will be completed in March 1993, when the AFC system will enter service.

High-throughput full-automatic synchrotron-based tomographic microscopy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

At the TOMCAT (TOmographic Microscopy and Coherent rAdiology experimenTs) beamline of the Swiss Light Source with an energy range of 8-45 keV and voxel size from 0.37 {micro}m to 7.4 {micro}m, full tomographic datasets are typically acquired in 5 to 10 min. To exploit the speed of the system and enable high-throughput studies to be performed in a fully automatic manner, a package of automation tools has been developed. The samples are automatically exchanged, aligned, moved to the correct region of interest, and scanned. This task is accomplished through the coordination of Python scripts, a robot-based sample-exchange system, sample positioning motors and a CCD camera. The tools are suited for any samples that can be mounted on a standard SEM stub, and require no specific environmental conditions. Up to 60 samples can be analyzed at a time without user intervention. The throughput of the system is dependent on resolution, energy and sample size, but rates of four samples per hour have been achieved with 0.74 {micro}m voxel size at 17.5 keV. The maximum intervention-free scanning time is theoretically unlimited, and in practice experiments have been running unattended as long as 53 h (the average beam time allocation at TOMCAT is 48 h per user). The system is the first fully automated high-throughput tomography station: mounting samples, finding regions of interest, scanning and reconstructing can be performed without user intervention. The system also includes many features which accelerate and simplify the process of tomographic microscopy.

Experimental results of a household automatic icemaker in a refrigerator/freezer  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes the performance test results of an automatic icemaker refrigerator under various modes of icemaker operation. The tests were conducted on a 20-ft{sup 3} (0.566-m{sup 3}) household refrigerator that had a single forced convection evaporator and was charged with R-12. The focus of the research was to ascertain the effect of icemaker operation on the refrigerator`s daily energy consumption. Thus, three different types of tests were conducted, depending upon the icemaker`s operating mode. In the first test type, the baseline, the automatic icemaker was turned off and no ice was made. In the second test type, the ice-making mode (test A), the icemaker was turned on and ice was continuously made. Compared to the baseline, additional power was intermittently consumed by a mold heater that melts the ice cubes` interface with the tray, a solenoid valve that supplies water to the icemaker tray, and a motor that rotates the ejector blades to press the crescent-shaped ice cubes out of the mold and unload them into an ice bin. In the third test type, the failure mode (test B), the water supply was manually disconnected but the icemaker was left turned on. Even though no ice was made, additional power was still consumed by the mold heater, the solenoid valve, and the motorized ejector. In tests A and B, the energy consumed by the icemaker`s components increases the cooling load, which raises the compressor power consumption. The present study shows that at the AHAM-specified test conditions, uninterrupted icemaking increased the daily energy consumption by 22.5% to 27.2%.

Factors for conversion between human and automatic read-outs of CDMAM images  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: According to the European protocol for the quality control of the physical and technical aspects of mammography screening (EPQCM) image quality of digital mammography devices has to be assessed using human evaluation of the CDMAM contrast-detail phantom. This is accomplished by the determination of threshold thicknesses of gold disks with different diameters (0.08-2 mm) and revealed to be very time consuming. Therefore a software solution based on a nonprewhitening matched filter (NPW) model was developed at University of Nijmegen. Factors for the conversion from automatic to human readouts have been determined by Young et al.[Proc. SPIE 614206, 1-13 (2006) and Proc. SPIE 6913, 69131C1 (2008)] using a huge amount of data of both human and automatic readouts. These factors depend on the observer groups and are purely phenomenological. The authors present an alternative approach to determine the factors by using the Rose observer model. Methods: Their method uses the Rose theory which gives a relationship between threshold contrast, diameter of the object and number of incident photons. To estimate the conversion factors for the five diameters from 0.2 to 0.5 mm they exposed with five different current-time products which resulted in 25 equations with five unknowns. Results: The theoretical conversion factors (in dependence of the diameters) amounted to be 1.61 {+-} 0.02 (0.2 mm diameter), 1.67 {+-} 0.02 (0.25 mm), 1.85 {+-} 0.02 (0.31 mm), 2.09 {+-} 0.02 (0.4 mm), and 2.28 {+-} 0.02 (0.5 mm). The corresponding phenomenological factors found in literature are 1.74 (0.2 mm), 1.78 (0.25 mm), 1.83 (0.31 mm), 1.88 (0.4 mm), and 1.93 (0.5 mm). Conclusions: They transferred the problem of determining the factors to a well known observer model which has been examined for many years and is also well established. This method reveals to be reproduceable and produces factors comparable to the phenomenological ones.

Strategies for automatic online treatment plan reoptimization using clinical treatment planning system: A planning parameters study  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: Adaptive radiation therapy for prostate cancer using online reoptimization provides an improved control of interfractional anatomy variations. However, the clinical implementation of online reoptimization is currently limited by the low efficiency of current strategies and the difficulties associated with integration into the current treatment planning system. This study investigates the strategies for performing fast (?2 min) automatic online reoptimization with a clinical fluence-map-based treatment planning system; and explores the performance with different input parameters settings: dose-volume histogram (DVH) objective settings, starting stage, and iteration number (in the context of real time planning).Methods: Simulated treatments of 10 patients were reoptimized daily for the first week of treatment (5 fractions) using 12 different combinations of optimization strategies. Options for objective settings included guideline-based RTOG objectives, patient-specific objectives based on anatomy on the planning CT, and daily-CBCT anatomy-based objectives adapted from planning CT objectives. Options for starting stages involved starting reoptimization with and without the original plan's fluence map. Options for iteration numbers were 50 and 100. The adapted plans were then analyzed by statistical modeling, and compared both in terms of dosimetry and delivery efficiency.Results: All online reoptimized plans were finished within ?2 min with excellent coverage and conformity to the daily target. The three input parameters, i.e., DVH objectives, starting stage, and iteration number, contributed to the outcome of optimization nearly independently. Patient-specific objectives generally provided better OAR sparing compared to guideline-based objectives. The benefit in high-dose sparing from incorporating daily anatomy into objective settings was positively correlated with the relative change in OAR volumes from planning CT to daily CBCT. The use of the original plan fluence map as the starting stage reduced OAR dose at the mid-dose region, but increased the monitor units by 17%. Differences of only 2cc or less in OAR V50%/V70Gy/V76Gy were observed between 100 and 50 iterations.Conclusions: It is feasible to perform automatic online reoptimization in ?2 min using a clinical treatment planning system. Selecting optimal sets of input parameters is the key to achieving high quality reoptimized plans, and should be based on the individual patient's daily anatomy, delivery efficiency, and time allowed for plan adaptation.

Automatic Gain Control in Mass Spectrometry using a Jet Disrupter Electrode in an Electrodynamic Ion Funnel  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We report on the use of a jet disrupter electrode in an electrodynamic ion funnel as an electronic valve to regulate the intensity of the ion beam transmitted through the interface of a mass spectrometer in order to perform automatic gain control (AGC). The ion flux is determined by either directly detecting the ion current on the conductance limiting orifice of the ion funnel or using a short mass spectrometry acquisition. Based upon the ion flux intensity, the voltage of the jet disrupter is adjusted to alter the transmission efficiency of the ion funnel to provide a desired ion population to the mass analyzer. Ion beam regulation by an ion funnel is shown to provide an unbiased control to within a few percent of a targeted ion intensity or abundance. The utility of ion funnel AGC was evaluated using a protein tryptic digest analyzed with liquid chromatography Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (LC-FTICR) mass spectrometry. The ion population in the ICR cell was accurately controlled to a variety of different levels, which improved data quality and provided better mass measurement accuracy.

High?performance session variability compensation in forensic automatic speaker recognition.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recently the main performance improvement in automatic speaker recognition technology has been due to session variability compensation techniques mainly based on factor analysis (FA) which have reduced the equal error rate (EER) of state?of?the?art systems by a factor of 10 in less than five years (e.g. EER<2% for NIST SRE 2008 telephonespeech). Moreover such systems are able to compute millions of comparisons a thousand times faster than real time after speech features are extracted. However some challenges remain because if there is a mismatch between the conditions of the FA training database and the speech used for comparison the effectiveness of the compensation significantly decreases. This problem is especially relevant in forensic voice comparison where the availability of speech matching operational conditions is usually sparse. In this presentation we show the impact of this effect in realistic simulated case studies. We use the BaezaAhumada IV database which contains speech acquired with the Spanish Guardia Civil facilities used in their daily work. We also present algorithms to handle sparsity in the data used for training FA models. Finally we outline future research plans in order to improve session variability compensation performance in forensically realistic conditions.

Optimisation of robotised sealing stations in paint shops by process simulation and automatic path planning  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Application of sealing materials is done in order to prevent water leakage into cavities of the car body, and to reduce noise. The complexity of the sealing spray process is characterised by multi-phase and free surface flows, multi-scale phenomena, and large moving geometries, which poses great challenges for mathematical modelling and simulation. The aim of this paper is to present a novel framework that includes detailed process simulation and automatic generation of collision free robot paths. To verify the simulations, the resulting width, thickness and shape of applied material on test plates as a function of time and spraying distance have been compared to experiments. The agreement is in general very good. The efficient implementation makes it possible to simulate application of one meter of sealing material in less than an hour on a standard computer, and it is therefore feasible to include such detailed simulations in the production preparation process and off-line programming of the sealing robots.

Dynamic modelling of MSF plants for automatic control and simulation purposes: a survey  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The successful development of a control system requires an appropriate definition of the control structure (i.e., selection of output, input and disturbance variables) and an efficient dynamical model on which the design, analysis and evaluation can be carried out. Thus, the confidence in the obtained results depends on the validity of the control structure and of the model used. For multistage flash (MSF) desalination processes, several dynamical models can be found in the literature. However, most of them are not suitable for analysis and control design purposes because they bring too many variables into play. The variables, which are sharing in the control system, normally constitute a reduced subset of the total variables that can be defined in the process. Moreover, a dynamical model suitable for control is simpler than the model derived from the physics of the underlying process. Hence, the selection of variables and the model building from the point of view of control design presents a compromise between the indispensable information contained in the model and the mathematical complexity proper of the design. In this paper, different models from the literature are analysed. Their advantages and drawbacks are described taking into account simulation and automatic control purposes. Moreover, a set of wished modelling facilities from the control engineer point of view is highlighted. Finally, a block-oriented library for Matlab/Simulink is presented, so that different plant configurations can be implemented as block diagram to simulate the system and to test control algorithms.

Automatic determination about precision parameter value based on inclusion degree with variable precision rough set model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The rough set theory provides a powerful approach for attributes reduction and data analysis. The variable precision rough set (VPRS) model, an extension of the original rough set approach, tolerates misclassifications of the training data to some degree, which promotes the applications of rough set theory in inconsistent information systems. However, in most existing algorithms of feature reduction based on VPRS, the precision parameter (?) is introduced as prior knowledge, which restricts their applications because it is not clear how to set the ? value. By studying ?-consistency in the measurement of a decision table and the threshold value of the ?-consistent decision table, this paper presents an algorithm for automatic determination of the precision parameter value from a decision table based on VPRS. At the same time, the precision parameter value from our proposed method is compared with the thresholds from the decision-theoretic rough set (DTRS). The influences of the precision parameter are also discussed on attribute reduction, which shows the necessity of the estimated precision parameter from a decision table. The simulation results including VPRS and other classification methods in real data further indicate that different precision parameter values make a great difference on rules and setting a precise parameter near the threshold value of the ?-consistent decision table can precisely reflect the decision distribution of the decision table.

Automatic UT inspection of economizer at TVA`s Paradise plant  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In March 1995, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) and Southwest Research Institute (SwRi) conducted testing of a multi-element ultrasonic probe designed to inspect economizer tubing in the Paradise power plant during the spring outage. This evaluation was to determine general loss of wall thickness due to erosion/corrosion and preferential inside diameter (ID) corrosion at butt welds in straight sections of the tube. The erosion/corrosion wall loss occurs during service while the butt weld corrosion occurs out-of-service when water collects in the weld groove during outages and results in localized pitting in the weld groove. The ultrasonic (UT) probe was designed to acquire thickness measurements from the ID of the economizer tubes and to be accurate, very rapid UT inspection. To attain a high rate of speed inside the tubes, an eight-element circular array of transducers were designed into the probe head. Thickness data and location data are collected automatically by a portable computer.

Automatic whole core depletion and criticality calculations by MCNPX 2.7.0  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Different approaches to perform automatic whole core criticality and depletion calculations in a research reactor using MCNPX 2.7.0 are presented. An approximate method is to use the existing symmetries of the burned fuel material distribution in the core, i.e., the axial, radial and azimuth symmetries around the core center, in order to significantly reduce the computation time. In this case it is not necessary to give a unique material number to each burn up cell. Cells having similar burn up and power, achieved during similar irradiation history at same initial fuel composition, will experience similar composition evolution and can therefore be given the same material number. To study the impact of the number of unique burn up materials on the computation time and utilized RAM memory, several MCNPX models have been developed. The paper discusses the accuracy of the model on comparison with measurements of BR2 operation cycles in function of the number of unique burn up materials and the impact of the used Q-value (MeV/fission) of the recoverable fission energy.

Emission reduction of NOx and CO by optimization of the automatic control system in a coal-fired stoker boiler  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

To date research on NO, and CO emission reduction in stoker-fired boilers has been devoted to combustion modification to the overfire air, diverting air to a selected set of burners, using modified low-NOx, burners, using flue gas recirculation or flue gas treatment with specially controlled catalyst and additives. This study introduces a concept that focuses on the dynamics of the boiler and the automatic control system. The objective of this study was to reduce the NO and CO emissions by restructuring the automatic control system and then tuning the control system with parameters that have been optimized with emission reduction as the objective. Dynamic data were obtained from a step-input test of either the underfire air or the overfire air. These data were used to model the boiler with a transfer function describing the emissions. The analyzer dynamic response was included in the overall model. The control parameters were determined from this overall emissions transfer function by mathematical optimization. These control parameters constituted the initial values in the automatic control system used for the final tests in the boiler. Additional adjustments to reduce the emissions were carried out during boiler operation. A low controller gain and a fast reset time were found to be the most suitable setting for the control system. The NO emissions controlled by the overfire air and CO emissions controlled by the underfire air produced the best results.

Pre-industrial charcoal production in Lower Lusatia (Brandenburg, Germany): Detection and evaluation of a large charcoal-burning field by combining archaeological studies, GIS-based analyses of shaded-relief maps and dendrochronological age determination  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In pre-industrial times, charcoal burning was a common source of energy across Europe. Charcoal production and its related consequences for the upland environment are well known due to historical and palaeoenvironmental research. In recent years, awareness has grown regarding the use of woods in the lowlands for charcoal production. In the last 20 years, a large charcoal-burning field in Lower Lusatia (Brandenburg, North German Lowlands) was discovered by systematic archaeological excavations of the opencast mine of Jnschwalde. However, the excavations are limited to the mine, which only covers a portion of the Jnschwalder Heide and the surrounding forests. In this paper, we present the results of our study regarding the spatial extension and timing of charcoal production in the Jnschwalder Heide and its surrounding areas. We applied a combined approach using archaeological research results, GIS-analyses of shaded-relief maps (SRMs) and tree-ring dating of selected charcoal kiln remains. Approximately 900 excavated charcoal kiln ground plans were analysed, which provided a solid data basis for our GIS analyses. For an extensive evaluation, we enlarged our study area beyond the limits of the lignite mine. We identified and digitised the remains of the charcoal kilns by creating \\{SRMs\\} from digital elevation models (DEMs) that were based on high-resolution airborne laser scanning data (ALS). The data from the excavated and digitised charcoal kiln remains were analysed in terms of their sizes and spatial distributions. In addition, the dendrochronological ages of 16 selected charcoal kiln remains were determined. This study shows that charcoal production was more extensive than initially proven by archaeological excavations. The remains of more than 5000 charcoal kilns were detected on the \\{SRMs\\} across an area that was twice as large as the excavated charcoal-burning field. In the Jnschwalder Heide, considerably more charcoal kiln relicts exist compared with the surrounding communal areas. Furthermore, the charcoal kiln remains in the Jnschwalder Heide have larger diameters, suggesting large-scale charcoal production for supplying energy to the nearby ironworks at Peitz. However, the charcoal production on the communal land was most likely for local crafts. The ages of the charcoal kiln remains indicated that charcoal production occurred between the 17th and 19th centuries, corresponding with the main period of charcoal burning. Overall, our study suggested that charcoal production sites are underestimated in the modern landscapes of the North German Lowlands.

[An improved, more reliable and more marketable version of the Automatic Metering System  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Texas Research Institute Austin, Inc. (TRI/Austin) was tasked by Letco International to evaluate its Automatic Metering System (AMS), a proportional controller for heat tracing cable. The original objectives were focused primarily on the reliability of the AMS controller. However, from the time of the original TRI/Austin proposal, the AMS device evolved beyond the prototype level into an established market product with sufficient operational experience and data that product reliability evaluation was not a significant test objective. The goals of this effort have been to determine the relative energy usage of the AMS proportional control compared to existing thermostatic control in a realistic freeze protection installation (low temperature test), to perform an accelerated life test for self limiting heat tracing cables to determine the service life impact of AMS control vs. thermostat control, and to perform a reliability analysis of the AMS device according to the 1986 edition of MIL-HDBK-217E [1] specifications. TRI/Austin designed and constructed a test set-up for conducting the low temperature test and the accelerated life test. A conceptual diagram of the test hardware is shown in Figure 1. The control computer was programmed to monitor and collect data from both tests in parallel, using the relay box and control circuitry fabricated at TRI/Austin. Test data and control commands were transmitted to and from the computer via standard parallel and serial interfaces. The AMS controller and relay box switched the power to the test cables, the commercial freezer, and the ALT chamber.

Development and application of a fully automatic troubleshooting method for large marine diesel engines  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The diesel engine is the main propulsion system for marine vessels except for a small category using gas or steam turbines. This is the result of its high efficiency, power concentration and reliability that have been improved considerably during the current decade. Despite these advantages, the engineer usually has to overcome great difficulties and mainly operational problems arising during the engine's lifetime. In the case of large marine engines it is almost impossible to apply trial and error methods to solve engine operating problems. This is amplified by the fact that almost all large marine diesel engines are turbocharged ones making the problem even more severe because of the interaction between the engine and the exhaust gas turbocharger. For this reason various diagnosis methods have been proposed for diesel engine condition monitoring that are mainly statistical based on known engine operating curves. These systems provide general information only and do not reveal the actual cause for an engine fault or low performance. In the current work an advanced automatic troubleshooting method based mainly on thermodynamics is presented to monitor the engine condition and to detect the actual cause for an engine fault. The method is based on the processing of measured engine data using a simulation model and provides the current engine condition and its tuning. An application of the method on a marine vessel powered by a slow speed two stroke marine diesel engine suffering from high cylinder exhaust gas temperatures and low power output is given in the present work. The method is applied at sea under actual engine operating conditions. From the processing of measured data the diagnosis method provides the current engine condition and the cause for the low power output from which the engine suffered. After conducting the major repair/adjustments proposed by the diagnosis method a substantial improvement in engine behavior was observed providing a validation for the proposed method.

MO?E?330A?04: Semi?Automatic Contouring for Respiratory Gating  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Purpose: Contouring is very labor intensive especially in image?guidedradiotherapy involving many image sets. To expedite this task a semiautomatic image segmentation algorithm was developed to obtain lung and tumor volumes at the end?of?exhalation from contours drawn on an image set taken at the end?of?inhalation and vice versa. Method and Materials: The gradient vector flow (GVF) algorithm was first proposed by Xu and Prince. This snake model can dynamically conform to object shapes in response to two kinds of forces: internal force from the contour itself and external forces from image gradients. The energy cost function composed of these two forces can be minimized based on local GVF information. Different parameters were used for elasticity and rigidity of lung and tumor tissue. A variation of the GVF method is proposed to speed up the convergence. A momentum item ??Ut EXP(?t/T0) was added to the gradient vector calculation in which ? is a momentum constant and T 0 is the initial annealing temperature. Results: Two CTimage sets were used to verify the algorithm. The lung and tumor contours drawn at one phase were used as an initial guess for the automatic drawing in the second phase. The GVF was calculated for each slice and some important parameters like elasticity rigidity and mass viscosity etc were assigned specific values for the optimization. The GVF calculation converged quickly to 10?3 in less than 5 seconds for a 512 512 image. The ratio of overlapping areas drawn by the algorithm to those of the manual approach exceeded 98%. Conclusion: The close match between computed and manually drawn contours as well as the short computing time indicates the feasibility of this method for clinical use. This method should also be expandable to other applications like image guided radiotherapy. More work is needed for contouring 4D image sets.

Markov Random Field Based Automatic Image Alignment for ElectronTomography  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Cryo electron tomography (cryo-ET) is the primary method for obtaining 3D reconstructions of intact bacteria, viruses, and complex molecular machines ([7],[2]). It first flash freezes a specimen in a thin layer of ice, and then rotates the ice sheet in a transmission electron microscope (TEM) recording images of different projections through the sample. The resulting images are aligned and then back projected to form the desired 3-D model. The typical resolution of biological electron microscope is on the order of 1 nm per pixel which means that small imprecision in the microscope's stage or lenses can cause large alignment errors. To enable a high precision alignment, biologists add a small number of spherical gold beads to the sample before it is frozen. These beads generate high contrast dots in the image that can be tracked across projections. Each gold bead can be seen as a marker with a fixed location in 3D, which provides the reference points to bring all the images to a common frame as in the classical structure from motion problem. A high accuracy alignment is critical to obtain a high resolution tomogram (usually on the order of 5-15nm resolution). While some methods try to automate the task of tracking markers and aligning the images ([8],[4]), they require user intervention if the SNR of the image becomes too low. Unfortunately, cryogenic electron tomography (or cryo-ET) often has poor SNR, since the samples are relatively thick (for TEM) and the restricted electron dose usually results in projections with SNR under 0 dB. This paper shows that formulating this problem as a most-likely estimation task yields an approach that is able to automatically align with high precision cryo-ET datasets using inference in graphical models. This approach has been packaged into a publicly available software called RAPTOR-Robust Alignment and Projection estimation for Tomographic Reconstruction.

Abstract This work proposes a simple automatic supervisory control system (ASCS) that is based on an energy-saving decoupling indoor comfort control (ESDICC) for regulating the indoor comforts of an office building. Three energy-saving indoor comfort control algorithms are modified to yield the ESDICC algorithms. The ESDICC-based ASCS is modeled using a Petri net (PN), whose graph is presented in detail and whose dynamics are thoroughly described. Results of two test cases demonstrate the simplicity of the operations of ESDICC-based ASCS and the energy-saving effect of the ESDICC algorithms.

Histogram-based gravitational optimization algorithm on single MR modality for automatic brain lesion detection and segmentation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a very effective medical imaging technique for the clinical diagnosis and monitoring of neurological disorders. Because of intensity similarities between brain lesions and normal tissues, multispectral MRI modalities are usually applied for brain lesion detection. However, the time and cost restrictions for collecting multi-spectral MRI, and the issue of possible errors from registering multiple MR images necessitate developing an automatic lesion detection approach that can detect lesions using a single anatomical MRI modality. In this paper, an automatic algorithm for brain stroke and tumor lesion detection and segmentation using single-spectral MRI is presented. The proposed algorithm, called histogram-based gravitational optimization algorithm (HGOA), is a novel intensity-based segmentation technique, which applies enhanced gravitational optimization algorithm on histogram analysis results. The mathematical descriptions as well as the convergence criteria of the developed optimization algorithm are presented in detail. Using this algorithm, brain is segmented into different number of regions, which will be labeled as lesion or healthy. Here, the ischemic stroke lesions and tumor lesions are segmented with 91.5% and 88.1% accuracy, respectively.

Automatic energy efficiency management of data center resources by load-dependent server activation and sleep modes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The operation of large Data Centers (DC) with thousands of servers is very costly in terms of energy consumption and cooling requirements. Currently, major efforts can be observed for server virtualization and consolidation to approach a proportionality between computation amount and energy consumption. In this contribution, a generalized model is presented which allows an automatic server consolidation by a load-dependent control of server activations using multi-parallel hysteresis thresholds, cold and hot server stand-by, and Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Scaling (DVFS). For the energy-efficiency and performance analysis, a multi-server queuing model is defined which is controlled by a Finite State Machine (FSM). The parameters of the queuing model are defined such that Service Level Agreements (SLA, e.g. as mean or percentiles of response times) are guaranteed except for overload conditions. The queuing model can be exactly analyzed under Markovian process assumptions from which all relevant quality of service (QoS) and energy efficiency (EE) metrics are derived. Numerical results are provided which demonstrate the applicability of the proposed model for the DC management, in particular to theoretically quantify the tradeoff between the conflicting aims of EE and QoS.

Optimal design of a robust discrete parallel FP+FI+FD controller for the Automatic Voltage Regulator system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The purpose of this paper is to design a good tracking controller for the generator Automatic Voltage Regulator (AVR) system. A fuzzy logic-based controller that is called Fuzzy P+Fuzzy I+Fuzzy D (FP+FI+FD) controller has been designed optimally and applied to AVR system. In the proposed method, optimal tuning of controller parameters is very important to achieve the desired level of robust performance. Thus, a hybrid of Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) (HGAPSO) technique has been used to find a better fuzzy system control. The motivation for using this hybrid method is to increase disturbance rejection effort, reduce fuzzy system efforts and take large parametric uncertainties into account. The developed FP+FI+FD control strategy leads to a flexible controller with simple structure that is easy to implement. The simulation results have been compared with the conventional ProportionalIntegralDerivative (PID) and fuzzy PID controllers. Three cases of simulation have been performed, case 1: comparing the tracking capability of the controllers, case 2: comparing the disturbance rejection capability of the controller and case 3: evaluating the performance of the controllers assuming that amplifier and exciter system parameters have 50% uncertainty. The simulation results shows that the proposed parallel FP+FI+FD controller has good performance from the perspective of overshoot/undershoot, settling time, and rise time in comparison with both conventional and fuzzy PID controllers.

Matrix-free second-order methods in implicit time integration for compressible flows using automatic differentiation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the numerical simulation of inviscid and viscous compressible fluid flow, implicit time integration schemes based on Newton-Krylov methods are frequently used. A crucial ingredient of Krylov subspace methods is the evaluation of the product of the Jacobian matrix of the spatial operator, e.g., fluxes, and a Krylov vector. In this article, we consider a matrix-free, consistently second-order accurate implementation of the Jacobian-vector product within the flow solver QUADFLOW using automatic differentiation. The convergences of the non-linear iteration using first- and second-order accurate Jacobian-vector products are compared. Different algorithmic parameters such as the CFL number and the choice of the preconditioner are taken into account. Investigations of inviscid flow around an airfoil and a wing of an aircraft, as well as the viscous laminar flow over a flat plate demonstrate that the convergence of the Newton-Krylov solver can significantly be improved using consistently second-order accurate matrix-vector products, compared to standard first-order approximations. It has been shown that a hybrid strategy using a blend between first-order and second-order accurate matrix-vector products is the best choice to obtain an efficient and robust algorithm.

Development of a high-efficiency, automatic-defrosting refrigerator-freezer. Phase II. Field test. Volume III. Executive summary and task reports  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The second phase of the development of a high-efficiency, automatic-defrosting, refrigerator-freezer is described. Following the successful completion of Phase I (design, construction, and laboratory testing of a 16 ft/sup 3/ high efficiency refrigerator-freezer prototype), Phase II was initiated to evaluate sales potential and in-home performance as a necessary step in creating a product that was both manufacturable and marketable. Twenty-five pilot production 18 ft/sup 3/ units using prototype tooling were produced on the assembly line to confirm the feasibility of full-scale production. These units were then used in a market and field test program in which consumer appeal and in-home performance were assessed. The market evaluation confirmed that refrigerators incorporating high-efficiency features at added cost are saleable and that large capacity, automatic-defrosting, refrigerator-freezers will continue to capture a large portion of the market in the years ahead, The field test confirmed the in-home energy saving potential of a high efficiency, automatic-defrosting refrigerator-frezer utilizing advanced design features such as optimized, thick-wall, foam an average energy savings of 60% compared to a baseline unit of conventional design.

Study of mercury cadmium telluride (MCT) surfaces by automatic spectroscopic ellipsometry (ASE) and by electrolyte electroreflectance (EER)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A systematic study of line shapes obtained by electrolyte electroreflectance (EER) and by automatic spectroscopicellipsometry(ASE) on samples of mercurycadmium telluride (MCT) with varying densities of defects has been carried out. The results show that the two techniques yield in all cases the same value for the interband transition energies E j . Because the values of the E j are quantitatively related to the alloy composition x it is clear that both ASE and EER can be used to carry out studies of the alloy composition. On the other hand the values of the linewidths ? j yielded by the two techniques often do not agree. In those cases in which the etch pit density is less than 106/cm2 the values agree approximately; otherwise EER yields much larger values. The difference between the two techniques is of course the use of an electric field modulated at very low frequencies (EER). We show that the modulating electric field causes an electrostriction and polarization of the defects in MCT. These effects which have not been taken into account in previous theories of electroreflectance are shown to give rise to first? and second?derivative line shapes proportional to the Stark shifts ?E j and to a shift ???2 related to the overall defect scattering strength respectively. These new line shapes dominate the usual third?derivative line shape for defective materials. A simple interpretation of our experimental results suggests that the relative Stark shifts ?E j are associated with plasticity long?range strains and extended defects and that the shift ??2 arises from polarizable charged defects. Thus the treatment present here by allowing one to determine values for ?E j and ??2 as well as values for ? j in agreement with ASE give important physical information not previously available on defects in MCT. The quantitative determination of the defect?related parameters has allowed us to establish a hierarchy of quality among all the epitaxial techniques by comparison to bulk single crystal samples.

A new type of fuzzy neural network based on a truth space approach for automatic acquisition of fuzzy rules with linguistic hedges  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Fuzzy reasoning methods are generally classified into two approaches: the direct approach and the truth space approach. Several researches on the relationships between these approaches have been reported. There has been, however, no research which discusses their utility. The authors have previously proposed four types of fuzzy neural networks (FNNs) called Type I, II, III, and IV. The \\{FNNs\\} can identify the fuzzy rules and tune the membership functions of fuzzy reasoning automatically, utilizing the learning capability of neural networks. Types III and IV, which are based on the truth space approach, can acquire linguistic fuzzy rules with the fuzzy variables in the consequences labeled according to their linguistic truth values (LTVs). However, the expressions available for the linguistic labeling are limited, since the \\{LTVs\\} are singletons. This paper presents a new type of FNN based on the truth space approach for automatic acquisition of the fuzzy rules with linguistic hedges. The new FNN, called Type V, has the \\{LTVs\\} defined by fuzzy sets for fuzzy rules and can express the identified fuzzy rules linguistically using the fuzzy variables in the consequences with linguistic hedges. Two simulations are done for demonstrating the feasibility of the new method. The results show that the truth space approach makes the fuzzy rules easy to understand.

A study of the utility of heat collectors in reducing the response time of automatic fire sprinklers located in production modules of Building 707  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Several of the ten production Modules in Building 707 at the Department of Energy Rocky Flats Plant recently underwent an alteration which can adversely affect the performance of the installed automatic fire sprinkler systems. The Modules have an approximate floor to ceiling height of 17.5 ft. The alterations involved removing the drop ceilings in the Modules which had been at a height of 12 ft above the floor. The sprinkler systems were originally installed with the sprinkler heads located below the drop ceiling in accordance with the nationally recognized NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Automatic Sprinkler Systems. The ceiling removal affects the sprinkler`s response time and also violates NFPA 13. The scope of this study included evaluation of the feasibility of utilizing heat collectors to reduce the delays in sprinkler response created by the removal of the drop ceilings. The study also includes evaluation of substituting quick response sprinklers for the standard sprinklers currently in place, in combination with a heat collector.

Development and clinical evaluation of automatic fiducial detection for tumor tracking in cine megavoltage images during volumetric modulated arc therapy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Purpose: Real-time tracking of implanted fiducials in cine megavoltage (MV) imaging during volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) delivery is complicated due to the inherent low contrast of MV images and potential blockage of dynamic leaves configurations. The purpose of this work is to develop a clinically practical autodetection algorithm for motion management during VMAT. Methods: The expected field-specific segments and the planned fiducial position from the Eclipse (Varian Medical Systems, Palo Alto, CA) treatment planning system were projected onto the MV images. The fiducials were enhanced by applying a Laplacian of Gaussian filter in the spatial domain for each image, with a blob-shaped object as the impulse response. The search of implanted fiducials was then performed on a region of interest centered on the projection of the fiducial when it was within an open field including the case when it was close to the field edge or partially occluded by the leaves. A universal template formula was proposed for template matching and normalized cross correlation was employed for its simplicity and computational efficiency. The search region for every image was adaptively updated through a prediction model that employed the 3D position of the fiducial estimated from the localized positions in previous images. This prediction model allowed the actual fiducial position to be tracked dynamically and was used to initialize the search region. The artifacts caused by electronic interference during the acquisition were effectively removed. A score map was computed by combining both morphological information and image intensity. The pixel location with the highest score was selected as the detected fiducial position. The sets of cine MV images taken during treatment were analyzed with in-house developed software written in MATLAB (The Mathworks, Inc., Natick, MA). Five prostate patients were analyzed to assess the algorithm performance by measuring their positioning accuracy during treatment. Results: The algorithm was able to accurately localize the fiducial position on MV images with success rates of more than 90% per case. The percentage of images in which each fiducial was localized in the studied cases varied between 23% and 65%, with at least one fiducial having been localized between 40% and 95% of the images. This depended mainly on the modulation of the plan and fiducial blockage. The prostate movement in the presented cases varied between 0.8 and 3.5 mm (mean values). The maximum displacement detected among all patients was of 5.7 mm. Conclusions: An algorithm for automatic detection of fiducial markers in cine MV images has been developed and tested with five clinical cases. Despite the challenges posed by complex beam aperture shapes, fiducial localization close to the field edge, partial occlusion of fiducials, fast leaf and gantry movement, and inherently low MV image quality, good localization results were achieved in patient images. This work provides a technique for enabling real-time accurate fiducial detection and tumor tracking during VMAT treatments without the use of extra imaging dose.
