Comment on “New Brans-Dicke wormholes”  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

It is shown that the recently claimed two new Brans-Dicke wormhole solutions [F. He and S-W. Kim, Phys. Rev. D 65, 084022 (2002)] are not really new solutions. They are just the well known Brans-Dicke solutions of Class I and II in a different conformal gauge.

Brans-Dicke cylindrical wormholes  

SciTech Connect

Static axisymmetric thin-shell wormholes are constructed within the framework of the Brans-Dicke scalar-tensor theory of gravity. Examples of wormholes associated with vacuum and electromagnetic fields are studied. All constructions must be threaded by exotic matter, except in the case of geometries with a singularity of finite radius, associated with an electric field, which can have a throat supported by ordinary matter. These results are achieved with any of the two definitions of the flare-out condition considered.

Physics of ball lightning  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An up to date description of the state of the ball lightning problem is given. The properties of ball lightning have been derived from a statistical treatment of thousands of observations. The experimental modeling of ball lightning as a whole is reviewed. The analysis leads to the conclusion that ball lightning has a rigid skeleton; a spotted structure of its glowing follows from a large difference between the radiative and mean temperatures of the ball lightning. Ball lightning is a many-sided phenomenon, and therefore has a number of analogs which are related to its separate properties and which can be modeled. The mechanical, gas-dynamical, energetic radiative and electrical processes of ball lightning are analyzed on the basis of such analogs and recent scientific information. According to this analysis, the substance composing ball lightning has a sparse fractal structure, similar to an aerogel, with the density of a gas and the behavior of a solid or liquid. The best model resembling the ball lightning structure is a knot of fractal fibers. The glowing of ball lightning is created by many thermal waves that propagate along separate fibers, use the surface energy of the structure, and form glowing hot zones with a temperature of about 2000 K. A number of models considered allow us to study the nature of ball lightning in detail.

Cosmic acceleration and Brans-Dicke theory  

SciTech Connect

We study the accelerated expansion of the universe by exploring the Brans-Dicke parameter in different eras. For this, we take the FRW universe model with a viscous fluid (without potential) and the Bianchi type-I universe model with a barotropic fluid (with and without a potential). We evaluate the deceleration parameter and the Brans-Dicke parameter to explore cosmic acceleration. It is concluded that accelerated expansion of the universe can also be achieved for higher values of the Brans-Dicke parameter in some cases.

Tunguska Dark Matter Ball  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is suggested that the Tunguska event in June 1908 cm-large was due to a cm-large ball of a condensate of bound states of 6 top and 6 anti-top quarks containing highly compressed ordinary matter. Such balls are supposed to make up the dark matter as we earlier proposed. The expected rate of impact of this kind of dark matter ball with the earth seems to crudely match a time scale of 200 years between the impacts. The main explosion of the Tunguska event is explained in our picture as material coming out from deep within the earth, where it has been heated and compressed by the ball penetrating to a depth of several thousand km. Thus the effect has some similarity with volcanic activity as suggested by Kundt. We discuss the possible identification of kimberlite pipes with earlier Tunguska-like events. A discussion of how the dark matter balls may have formed in the early universe is also given.

False vacuum decay in Jordan-Brans-Dicke cosmologies  

SciTech Connect

We examine the bubble nucleation rate in a first-order phase transition taking place in a background Jordan-Brans-Dicke cosmology. We compute the leading order terms in the nucleation rate when the Jordan-Brans-Dicke field is large (i.e., late times) by means of a Weyl rescaling of the fields in the theory. We find that despite the fact that the Jordan-Brans-Dicke field (hence the effective gravitational constant) has a time dependence in the false vacuum, at late times the nucleation rate is time independent. 21 refs.

Electrical conductivity in granular media and Branly’s coherer: A simple experiment  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We show how a simple laboratory experiment can illustrate certain electrical transport properties of metallic granular media. At a low critical external voltage a transition from an insulating to a conductive state is observed. This transition comes from an electro-thermal coupling in the vicinity of the microcontacts between grains where microwelding occurs. Our apparatus allows us to obtain an implicit determination of the microcontact temperature which is analogous to the use of a resistive thermometer. The experiment also helps us explain an old problem Branly’s coherer effect which was used as a radio wavedetector for the first wireless radio transmission and is based on the sensitivity of the conductivity of metal filings to an electromagnetic wave.

Autoparallel orbits in Kerr Brans-Dicke spacetimes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The bounded orbital motion of a massive spinless test particle in the background of a Kerr Brans-Dicke geometry is analysed in terms of worldlines that are auto-parallels of different metric compatible spacetime connections. In one case the connection is that of Levi-Civita with zero-torsion. In the second case the connection has torsion determined by the gradient of the Brans-Dicke background scalar field. The calculations permit in principle to discriminate between these possibilities.

Split-ball resonator  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We introduce a new concept of split-ball resonator and demonstrate a strong omnidirectional magnetic dipole response for both gold and silver spherical plasmonic nanoparticles with nanometer-scale cuts. Tunability of the magnetic dipole resonance throughout the visible spectral range is demonstrated by a change of the depth and width of the nanoscale cut. We realize this novel concept experimentally by employing the laser-induced transfer method to produce near-perfect spheres and helium ion beam milling to make cuts with the nanometer resolution. Due to high quality of the spherical particle shape, governed by strong surface tension forces during the laser transfer process, and the clean, straight side walls of the cut made by helium ion milling, magnetic resonance is observed at 600 nm in gold and at 565 nm in silver nanoparticles. Structuring arbitrary features on the surface of ideal spherical resonators with nanoscale dimensions provides new ways of engineering hybrid resonant modes and ultra-high near-f...

Dynamics of the bouncing ball  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We describe an experiment dedicated to the study of the trajectories of a ball bouncing randomly on a vibrating plate. The system was originally used, considering a sinusoidal vibration, to illustrate period doubling and the route to chaos. Our experimental device makes it possible to impose, to the plate, arbitrary trajectories and not only sinusoidal or random, as is generally the case. We show that the entire trajectory of the ball can still be reconstructed from the measurement of the collisions times. First, we make use of the experimental system to introduce the notion of dissipative collisions and to propose three different ways to measure the associated restitution coefficient. Then, we report on correlations in the chaotic regime and discuss theoretically the complex pattern which they exhibit in the case of a sinusoidal vibration. At last, we show that the use of an aperiodic motion makes it possible to get rid of part of the correlations and to discuss theoretically the average energy of the ball in the chaotic regime.

Ball Packings with Periodic Constraints  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We call a periodic ball packing in d-dimensional Euclidean space periodically (strictly) jammed with respect to a period lattice if there are no nontrivial motions of the balls that preserve the period (that maintain some period with smaller or equal volume). In particular, we call a packing consistently periodically (strictly) jammed if it is periodically (strictly) jammed on every one of its periods. After extending a well-known bar framework and stress condition to strict jamming, we prove that a packing with period Lambda is consistently strictly jammed if and only if it is strictly jammed with respect to Lambda and consistently periodically jammed. We next extend a result about rigid unit mode spectra in crystallography to characterize periodic jamming on sublattices. After that, we prove that there are finitely many strictly jammed packings of m unit balls and other similar results. An interesting example shows that the size of the first sublattice on which a packing is first periodically unjammed is not bounded. Finally, we find an example of a consistently periodically jammed packing of low density \\delta = \\frac{4 \\pi}{6 \\sqrt{3} + 11} + \\epsilon ~ 0.59, where \\epsilon is an arbitrarily small positive number. Throughout the paper, the statements for the closely related notions of periodic infinitesimal rigidity and affine infinitesimal rigidity for tensegrity frameworks are also given.

Ball feeder for replenishing evaporator feed  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

Vapor source material such as uranium, which is to be dropped into a melt in an evaporator, is made into many balls of identical diameters and placed inside a container. An elongated sloping pipe is connected to the container and leads to the evaporator such that these balls can travel sequentially therealong by gravity. A metering valve in this pipe for passing these balls one at a time is opened in response to a signal when it is ascertained by a detector that there is a ball ready to be passed. A gate in the pipe near the evaporator momentarily stops the motion of the traveling ball and is then opened to allow the ball drop into the melt at a reduced speed.

Lunar Laser Ranging and the Brans-Dicke Theory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Laser ranging to an optical corner reflector on the lunar surface may make possible a test of non-Newtonian gravitational theories. The results of a theoretical calculation of the Brans-Dicke corrections to the laser-pulse transit time are compared with results previously obtained for the Einstein theory. A further analysis of the measurable non-Newtonian correction term which dominates the predictions of both theories indicates that the term probably is common to all Lorentz-covariant gravitational theories.

Telescoping magnetic ball bar test gage  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A telescoping magnetic ball bar test gage for determining the accuracy of machine tools, including robots, and those measuring machines having non-disengagable servo drives which cannot be clutched out. Two gage balls are held and separated from one another by a telescoping fixture which allows them relative radial motional freedom but not relative lateral motional freedom. The telescoping fixture comprises a parallel reed flexure unit and a rigid member. One gage ball is secured by a magnetic socket knuckle assembly which fixes its center with respect to the machine being tested. The other gage ball is secured by another magnetic socket knuckle assembly which is engaged or held by the machine in such manner that the center of that ball is directed to execute a prescribed trajectory, all points of which are equidistant from the center of the fixed gage ball. As the moving ball executes its trajectory, changes in the radial distance between the centers of the two balls caused by inaccuracies in the machine are determined or measured by a linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) assembly actuated by the parallel reed flexure unit. Measurements can be quickly and easily taken for multiple trajectories about several different fixed ball locations, thereby determining the accuracy of the machine.

Q-balls, Integrability and Duality  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper is concerned with the dynamics and interactions of Q-balls in (1+1)-dimensions. The asymptotic force between well-separated Q-balls is calculated to show that Q-balls can be attractive or repulsive depending upon their relative internal phase. An integrable model with exact multi-Q-ball solutions is investigated and found to be of use in explaining the dynamics in non-integrable theories. In particular, it is demonstrated that the dynamics of small Q-balls in a generic class of non-integrable models tends towards integrable dynamics as the charge decreases. Long-lived oscillations of a single Q-ball can also be understood in terms of a deformation of an exact breather solution in the integrable model. Finally, we show that any theory with Q-ball solutions has a dual description in which a stationary Q-ball is dual to a static kink, with an interchange of Noether and topological charges.

Carrying the Ball on Radon

Radon is present in all homes, and even in outdoor air, because it is a gaseous decay product of radium naturally present in the soil. Since even an average indoor exposure to radon's own decay products-isotopes of polonium, bismuth, and lead-was estimated to cause a 0.1 to 1% risk of lung cancer, depending on whether one smoked, these high levels sounded an immediate alarm. By the mid-1980s, scientists had already proven that indoor radon levels 10 to 100 times the average-an unacceptable amount-occurred in homes in

We find additional alternating current due to quark mass terms. The hadronic Q-balls, baby boson stars, may be created in heavy-ion collisions.

The cosmic coincidence in Brans-Dicke cosmologies  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Among the suggested solutions to the cosmological constant problem, we find the idea of a dynamic vacuum, with an energy density decaying with the universe expansion. We investigate the possibility of a variation in the gravitational constant as well, induced, at the cosmological scale, by the vacuum decay. We consider an effective Brans-Dicke theory in the spatially flat FLRW spacetime, finding late time solutions characterized by a constant ratio between the matter and vacuum energy densities. By using the observed limits for the universe age, we fix the only free parameter of our solutions, obtaining a relative matter density in the range 0.25-0.4. In particular, for Ht = 1 we obtain a relative matter density equals to 1/3. This constitutes a possible explanation for another problem related to the cosmological term, the cosmic coincidence problem.

Cosmic Microwave Background Temperature and Polarization Anisotropy in Brans-Dicke Cosmology  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We develop a formalism for calculating cosmic microwave background (CMB) temperature and polarization anisotropies in cosmological models with Brans-Dicke gravity. We then modify publicly available Boltzmann codes to calculate numerically the temperature and polarization power spectra. Results are illustrated with a few representative models. Comparing with the general-relativistic model with the same cosmological parameters, both the amplitude and the width of the acoustic peaks are different in the Brans-Dicke models. We use a covariance-matrix calculation to investigate whether the effects of Brans-Dicke gravity are degenerate with those of variation in other cosmological parameters and to simultaneously determine whether forthcoming CMB maps might be able to distinguish Brans-Dicke and general-relativistic cosmology. Although the predicted power spectra for plausible Brans-Dicke models differ from those in general relativity only slightly, we find that MAP and/or the Planck Surveyor may in principle provide a test of Brans-Dicke theory that is competitive to solar-system tests. For example, if all other parameters except for the CMB normalization are fixed, a value of the Brans-Dicke parameter omega as large as 500 could be identified with MAP, and for Planck, values as large as omega \\simeq3000 could be identified; these sensitivities are decreased roughly by a factor of 3 if we marginalize over the baryon density, Hubble constant, spectral index, and reionization optical depth. In more general scalar-tensor theories, omega may evolve with time, and in this case, the CMB probe would be complementary to that from solar-system tests.

SciTech Connect

4 ..pi.. data taken with the Plastic Ball show that cluster production in relativistic nuclear collisions depends on both the size of the participant volume and the finite size of the cluster. The measurement of the degree of thermalization and the search for collective flow will permit the study of the applicability of macroscopic concepts such as temperature and density.

Neutrino Balls and Gamma-Ray Bursts  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We propose a mechanism by which the neutrino emission from a supernova-type explosion can be converted into a gamma-ray burst of total energy $\\sim 10^{50}$ ergs. This occurs naturally if the explosion is situated inside a ball of trapped neutrinos, which in turn may lie at a galactic core. There are possible unique signatures of this scenario.

Modified Brans-Dicke theory with space-time anisotropic parameters  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider the ADM formalism of the Brans-Dicke theory and propose an anisotropic extension of the theory by introducing five free parameters. We find that the resulting theory reveals many interesting aspects which are not present in the original BD theory. We first discuss the ghost instability and strong coupling problems which are present in the gravity theory without the full diffeomorphism symmetry and show that they can be avoided in a region of the parameter space. We also perform the post-Newtonian approximation and show that the constraint of the Brans-Dicke parameter $\\omega_{{\\rm BD}}$ being large to be consistent with the solar system observations could be evaded in the extended theory. We also discuss that accelerating Universe can be achieved without the need of the potential for the Brans-Dicke scalar.

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.

Collective flow measured with the Plastic Ball

The experimental results from the Plastic Ball detector have contributed vastly to the understanding of the reaction mechanism of nuclear collisions at several hundred MeV per nucleon. The discovery of the collective flow phenomena (bounce-off of spectator fragments, side-splash in the reaction plane, and squeeze-out out of the reaction plane), as they were predicted by hydrodynamical models, has led to the experimental observation of compressed nuclear matter, which is a necessary condition before one can study the equation of state in detail and search for phase transitions at higher energies. 39 refs., 9 figs., 1 tab.

Ion implantation of silicon nitride ball bearings  

SciTech Connect

Hypothesis for ion implantation effect was that stress concentrations reflected into the bulk due to topography such as polishing imperfections, texture in the race, or transferred material, might be reduced due to surface amorphization. 42 control samples were tested to an intended runout period of 60 h. Six ion implanted balls were tested to an extended period of 150 h. Accelerated testing was done in a V groove so that wear was on two narrow wear tracks. Rutherford backscattering, XRPS, profilometry, optical microscopy, nanoindentation hardness, and white light interferometry were used. The balls were implanted with 150-keV C ions at fluence 1.1x10{sup 17}/cm{sup 2}. The samples had preexisting surface defects (C-cracks), so the failure rate of the control group was unacceptable. None of the ion-implanted samples failed in 150 h of testing. Probability of randomly selecting 6 samples from the control group that would perform this well is about 5%, so there is good probability that ion implantation improved performance. Possible reasons are discussed. Wear tracks, microstructure, and impurity content were studied in possible relation to C-cracks.

During the past year, the Crystal Ball experiment has continued the investigation of e/sup +/e/sup -/ interactions at SPEAR. In the course of the year, we have slightly more than doubled the available datasets at the J/psi (to 2.2 x 10/sup 6/ produced J/psi) and the psi' (to 1.8 x 10/sup 6/ produced psi') resonances, and have increased the data in the 5.2 to 7.4 GeV center-of-mass (E/sub c.m./) region. The present discussion is limited to recent results obtained with the J/psi and psi' datasets, primarily dealing with transitions among the charmonium bound states.

Exact solutions of Brans-Dicke cosmology with decaying vacuum density  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We investigate cosmological solutions of Brans-Dicke theory with both the vacuum energy density and the gravitational constant decaying linearly with the Hubble parameter. A particular class of them, with constant deceleration factor, sheds light on the cosmological constant problems, leading to a presently small vacuum term, and to a constant ratio between the vacuum and matter energy densities. By fixing the only free parameter of these solutions, we obtain cosmological parameters in accordance with observations of both the relative matter density and the universe age. In addition, we have three other solutions, with Brans-Dicke parameter w = -1 and negative cosmological term, two of them with a future singularity of big-rip type. Although interesting from the theoretical point of view, two of them are not in agreement with the observed universe. The third one leads, in the limit of large times, to a constant relative matter density, being also a possible solution to the cosmic coincidence problem.

Constraining Red-shift Parametrization Parameters in Brans-Dicke Theory: Evolution of Open Confidence Contours  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In Brans Dicke theory of gravity, from the nature of the scalar field-potential considered, the dark energy, dark matter, radiation densities predicted by different observations and the closedness of the universe considered, we can fix our $\\omega_{BD}$, the Brans Dicke parameter, keeping only the thing in mind that from different solar system constrains it must be greater than $5\\times 10^{5}$. Once we have a value, satisfying the required lower boundary, in our hand we proceed for setting unknown parameters of the different dark energy models' EoS parameter. In this paper we work with three well known red shift parametrizations of dark energy EoS. To constrain their free parameters for Brans Dicke theory of gravity we take twelve point red shift vs Hubble's parameter data and perform $\\chi^{2}$ test. We present the observational data analysis mechanism for Stern, Stern+BAO and Stern+BAO+CMB observations. Minimising $\\chi^2$, we obtain the best fit values and draw different confidence contours. We analyze the contours physically. Also we examine the best fit of distance modulus for our theoretical models and the Supernovae Type Ia Union2 sample. For Brans Dicke theory of gravity the difference from the mainstream confidence contouring method of data analysis id that the confidence contours evolved are not at all closed contours like a circle or a ellipse. Rather they are found to be open contours allowing the free parameters to float inside a infinite region of parameter space. However, negative EoSs are likely to evolve from the best fit values.

Theory of operation for the ball rheometer  

SciTech Connect

The Hanford Site contains over 100 high-volume tanks containing high-level radioactive wastes. The tank which has received the most attention is Tank 101-SY, which is a double shell tank containing a caustic mixed-waste slurry. The ball rheometer developed in this work is intended at least initially for application in this tank. Tank 101-SY is known to periodically release flammable and toxic gases during events known as rollovers. The tank waste is largely made up of two layers, a supernatant liquid layer underneath which is a thick sludge layer. The two layers are called the convective (C) and the nonconvective (NC) regions, so called because of the thermal transport properties ascribed to each. Although they have significant uncertainty, the current theology data suggest the existence of a yield stress in the highly viscous nonconvective layer. Gas generated in the waste can be held in the NC layer if the material yield strength or its viscosity is high enough. Gas cannot be held in the C layer to any appreciable extent unless it is in solution. As gas continues to be generated by chemical or other processes, the number of gas bubbles and/or their sizes increases in the NC layer. A rollover occurs when the amount of gas trapped in the nonconvective region becomes great enough to overcome forces holding it in place. These forces are believed to be dependent on the theology of the nonconvective region and perhaps the bubble surface tension. The buoyancy forces on the bubbles exceed the restraining forces arising from the yield stress and the viscosity of the NC layer. Theology is then seen to be quite important in determining the nature of gas release events in this tank.

Results obtained using the Plastic Ball  

SciTech Connect

Single-particle inclusive experiments, and experiments that additionally measure a few correlations like the associated multiplicity, have provided the main contribution to our present understanding of high-energy heavy-ion collisions. The results from those experiments are in overall agreement with calculations of the cascade and hydrodynamical models. In the cascade model the collision of two nuclei is simulated as a cascade of nucleon-nucleon collisions using measured N-N cross sections. The hydrodynamical model, on the other hand, describes the nuclear collision as that of two fluids and makes use of a nuclear equation of state relating thermal and compressional energy densities to pressure. The pressure field dominates the expansion phase and leads to collective flow of the reaction products in a preferred direction. The observation of such effects in inclusive experiments is not well established. Collective effects that manifest themselves in the shape of the event in phase space are expected to be seen best in complete event detectors that measure the final state as exclusively as presently possible by measuring most of the charged particles emitted in the reaction. In addition, those detectors are well suited to test macroscopic concepts such as equilibrium and temperature. Global methods like the sphericity or thrust analysis take into account all the correlations measured in the event and are specially designed to determine the shape of an event in phase space and thus to define a reaction plane. Recent data from the Plastic Ball experiment about the study of nuclear stopping and thermalization and on global analysis are presented.

Besides, we calculate the probability to find the scalar particles near the region where a naked singularity is present. The extremely high energy radiated in such a situation could account for the huge emitted power observed in Gamma Ray Bursts.

Areal array jetting device for ball grid arrays  

SciTech Connect

Package designs for microelectronics devices have moved from through-hole to surface mount technology in order to increase the printed wiring board real estate available by utilizing both sides of the board. The traditional geometry for surface mount devices is peripheral arrays where the leads are on the edges of the device. As the technology drives towards high input/output (I/O) count (increasing number of leads) and smaller packages with finer pitch (less distance between peripheral leads), limitations on peripheral surface mount devices arise. A solution to the peripheral surface mount issue is to shift the leads to the area under the device. This scheme is called areal array packaging and is exemplified by the ball grid array (BGA) package. In a BGA package, the leads are on the bottom surface of the package in the form of an array of solder balls. The current practice of joining BGA packages to printed wiring boards involves a hierarchy of solder alloy compositions. A high melting temperature ball is typically used for standoff. A promising alternative to current methods is the use of jetting technology to perform monolithic solder ball attachment. This paper describes an areal array jetter that was designed and built to simultaneously jet arrays of solder balls directly onto BGA substrates.

Thermodynamics of charged rotating black branes in Brans-Dicke theory with quadratic scalar field potential  

SciTech Connect

We construct a class of charged rotating solutions in (n+1)-dimensional Maxwell-Brans-Dicke theory with flat horizon in the presence of a quadratic potential and investigate their properties. These solutions are neither asymptotically flat nor (anti)-de Sitter. We find that these solutions can present black brane, with inner and outer event horizons, an extreme black brane or a naked singularity provided the parameters of the solutions are chosen suitably. We compute the finite Euclidean action through the use of counterterm method, and obtain the conserved and thermodynamic quantities by using the relation between the action and free energy in grand-canonical ensemble. We find that these quantities satisfy the first law of thermodynamics, and the entropy does not follow the area law.

VOC compliance on the ball: Aluminum can manufacturer rolls to California VOC compliance  

SciTech Connect

Since entering the North American beverage can market in 1969, Ball Corp., has increased its market share at a pace more than double the growth of the market itself. In addition to holding numerous patented advancements in can-making technology, Ball prides itself as an environmentally responsible company. When Ball decided to increase production capacity in its Fairfield, California, plant, the challenge was to produce more cans, while still complying with the state`s stringent air emissions regulations. As with other aluminum can manufacturing facilities, Ball`s coating and curing operations generate volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Ball`s permit from the state of California allows only limited amounts of VOC discharges into the atmosphere. With proposed increases in production capacities, however, the Bay Area`s Air Quality Management District--a local US EPA authority--required Ball to incinerate far more VOCs than the existing recuperative abatement system could handle. According to California regulations, facilities that wish to increase VOC emissions must install some type of VOC-control system or provide technological offsets. This regulatory pressure led Ball to seek a solution that would not only comply with emissions regulations, but would not compromise the company`s production process. Ball engineers selected a regenerative thermal oxidizer (RTO) for the Fairfield, Calif., plant. Considering the success Ball has encountered in previous experiences with this type of oxidation unit, the company immediately selected an RTO instead of catalytic oxidizers or other types of pollution control equipment.

The Modification of the Oppenheimer and Snyder Collapsing Dust Ball to a Static Ball in Discrete Space-time  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Besides the singularity problem, the famous Oppenheimer and Snyder solution is discovered to be of deficiency in two aspects: the internal Friedmann space-time does not have the inherent symmetry and cannot connect to the external Schwarzschild space-time. So the process of gravitational collapse described by this solution is doubtful. The deficiency, together with the singularity problem, result from the imperfection of the field theory in continuous space-time, which is expressed by the infinite precision function theory. The space-time structure of the Oppenheimer and Snyder dust ball is founded to be discrete rather than continuous, and to describe the field theory in discrete space-time it requires a function theory with finite precision. Based on the i order real number and its equivalence class, which is defined in the real number field, the infinite precision function theory is extended to the finite precision function theory. The Einstein field equations are expressed in the form of finite precision, and then the collapsing dust ball solution in continuous space-time is modified to a static ball solution in discrete space-time. It solves all the problems of Oppenheimer and Snyder solution and shows that, with Planck length and Planck time as space-time quantum, a mechanism to resist the gravitational collapse could be obtained by the discretization of space-time.

Secondary kinetics of methanol decomposition : theoretical rate coefficients for {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + OH, {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + {sup 3}CH{sub 2}, and {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + CH{sub 3}.  

SciTech Connect

Direct variable reaction coordinate transition state theory (VRC-TST) rate coefficients are reported for the {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + OH, {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + {sup 3}CH{sub 2}, and {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + CH{sub 3} barrierless association reactions. The predicted rate coefficient for the {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + OH reaction ({approx} 1.2 x 10{sup -10} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup -1} s{sup -1} for 300-2500 K) is 4-5 times larger than previous estimates, indicating that this reaction may be an important sink for OH in many combustion systems. The predicted rate coefficients for the {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + CH{sub 3} and {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + {sup 3}CH{sub 2} reactions are found to be in good agreement with the range of available experimental measurements. Product branching in the self-reaction of methylene is discussed, and the C{sub 2}H{sub 2} + 2H and C{sub 2}H{sub 2} + H{sub 2} products are predicted in a ratio of 4:1. The effect of the present set of rate coefficients on modeling the secondary kinetics of methanol decomposition is briefly considered. Finally, the present set of rate coefficients, along with previous VRC-TST determinations of the rate coefficients for the self-reactions of CH{sub 3} and OH and for the CH{sub 3} + OH reaction, are used to test the geometric mean rule for the CH{sub 3}, {sup 3}CH{sub 2}, and OH fragments. The geometric mean rule is found to predict the cross-combination rate coefficients for the {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + OH and {sup 3}CH{sub 2} + CH{sub 3} reactions to better than 20%, with a larger (up to 50%) error for the CH{sub 3} + OH reaction.

Reversible and irreversible spacetime thermodynamics for general Brans-Dicke theories  

SciTech Connect

We derive the equations of motion for Palatini F(R) gravity by applying an entropy balance law TdS={delta}Q+{delta}N to the local Rindler wedge that can be constructed at each point of spacetime. Unlike previous results for metric F(R), there is no bulk viscosity term in the irreversible flux {delta}N. Both theories are equivalent to particular cases of Brans-Dicke scalar-tensor gravity. We show that the thermodynamical approach can be used ab initio also for this class of gravitational theories and it is able to provide both the metric and scalar equations of motion. In this case, the presence of an additional scalar degree of freedom and the requirement for it to be dynamical naturally imply a separate contribution from the scalar field to the heat flux {delta}Q. Therefore, the gravitational flux previously associated to a bulk viscosity term in metric F(R) turns out to be actually part of the reversible thermodynamics. Hence we conjecture that only the shear viscosity associated with Hartle-Hawking dissipation should be associated with irreversible thermodynamics.

Method for loading, operating, and unloading a ball-bed nuclear reactor  

SciTech Connect

This patent describes a method of operating a ball-bed nuclear reactor with fuel element balls. Some have a fissionable material content different from that of others of the balls. It consists of: initially partly filling a reactor core with fuel balls of sufficient fissionable material content for establishing criticality and a desired level of power production at the completion of the partial filling and then, without any further filling of the reactor cavern, starting reactor operation; thereafter without any removal of fuel balls from the reactor cavern, filling fuel balls continually or in groups at relatively short intervals into the reactor cavern during increasing burning up of the fuel balls already, for compensation of the diminishing fissionable material content of the reactor core constituted by the fuel balls until a final total quantity of filling is reached; after the final filling quantity is reached and burning up has occurred, shutting down the reactor, cooling it off, releasing the pressure in the cavern, and thereafter unloading all the fuel balls from the reactor cavern, unloading being begun when the reactor is shut down and being completed before the reactor is restarted.

Measurements of the Motion of Plasma Filaments in a Plasma Ball  

SciTech Connect

Measurements were made of the motion of the filamentary structures in a plasma ball using high speed cameras and other optical detectors. These filaments traverse the ball radially at ~106 cm/sec at the driving frequency of ~26 kHz, and drift upward through the ball at ~1 cm/sec. Varying the applied high voltage and frequency caused the number, length, and diameter of the filaments to change. A custom plasma ball was constructed to observe the effects of varying gas pressure and species on the filament structures.

Ball-grid array architecture for microfabricated ion traps  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

State-of-the-art microfabricated ion traps for quantum information research are approaching nearly one hundred control electrodes. We report here on the development and testing of a new architecture for microfabricated ion traps, built around ball-grid array (BGA) connections, that is suitable for increasingly complex trap designs. In the BGA trap, through-substrate vias bring electrical signals from the back side of the trap die to the surface trap structure on the top side. Gold-ball bump bonds connect the back side of the trap die to an interposer for signal routing from the carrier. Trench capacitors fabricated into the trap die replace area-intensive surface or edge capacitors. Wirebonds in the BGA architecture are moved to the interposer. These last two features allow the trap die to be reduced to only the area required to produce trapping fields. The smaller trap dimensions allow tight focusing of an addressing laser beam for fast single-qubit rotations. Performance of the BGA trap as characterized with $^{40}$Ca$^+$ ions is comparable to previous surface-electrode traps in terms of ion heating rate, mode frequency stability, and storage lifetime. We demonstrate two-qubit entanglement operations with $^{171}$Yb$^+$ ions in a second BGA trap.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Biodiesel derived from vegetable oils and animal fats can be used in diesel engines with little or no modifications. In this work, the combustion, performance and emission characteristics of various biodiesel (rice bran oil and pungam oil) and their blends are evaluated in a direct injection diesel engine. Lower ignition delay, higher peak pressure and heat release rate with almost same brake thermal efficiency are obtained for 20% biodiesel blend as compared with diesel fuel. They exhibited lower unburned hydrocarbon, carbon monoxide and soot emissions with a penalty of higher NOx emissions.

Development of high efficiency ball-bearing turbocharger  

SciTech Connect

Turbochargers have become very popular on passenger cars since the first mass-produced turbocharged passenger cars were put on market in Japan in 1979. Turbo lag is one of the most serious problem since the first mass-production started. Several new technologies such as a variable geometry turbocharger, ceramic turbocharger, etc. have been introduced to improve acceleration performance. A variable geometry turbocharger changes the area of gas flow passage and increases exhaust gas speed at low engine speed. A ceramic turbocharger reduces inertia moment of a turbine wheel and shaft. Turbocharger mechanical efficiency has equal importance as compressor efficiency and turbine efficiency. This paper describes the test results of ball bearing turbochargers.

Plastic ball and streamer chamber experiments at the Bevalac  

SciTech Connect

Single particle inclusive experiments, and experiments that additionally measure a few correlations like the associated multiplicity, have provided the main contribution to our present understanding of high energy heavy ion collisions. The results from those experiments are in overall agreement with calculations of the cascade and hydrodynamical models. In the cascade model the collision of two nuclei is simulated as a cascade of nucleon-nucleon collisions using measured N-N cross sections. The hydrodynamical model, on the other hand, describes the nuclear collision as that of two fluids and makes use of a nuclear equation of state relating thermal and compressional energy densities to pressure. The pressure field dominates the expansion phase and leads to collective flow of the reaction products in a preferred direction. The observation of such effects in inclusive experiments is not well established. Collective effects that manifest themselves in the shape of the event in phase space are expected to be seen best in the new complete event detectors that measure the final state as exclusively as presently possible by measuring most of the charged particles emitted in the reaction. In addition, those detectors are well suited to test macroscopic concepts such as equilibrium and temperature. Global methods like the sphericity or thrust analysis take into account all the correlations measured in the event and are specially designed to determine the shape of an event in phase space and thus to define a reaction plane. Recent data from the Plastic Ball and the streamer chamber experiments, the first complete event detectors in use at the Bevalac, are presented in this report.

Unusual reaction paths of SN2 nucleophile substitution reactions CH4 + H? ? CH4 + H? and CH4 + F? ? CH3F + H?: Quantum chemical calculations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Quantum chemical (CCSD(full)/6-311++G(3df,3pd), CCSD(T)(full)/6-311++G(3df,3pd)) and density function theory (B3LYP/6-311++G(3df,3pd)) calculations were performed for the SN2 nucleophile substitution reactions CH4 + H? ? CH4 + H? and CH4 + F? ? CH3F + H?. The calculated gradient reaction pathways for both reactions have an unusual behavior. An unusual stationary point of index 2 lies on the gradient reaction path. Using Newton trajectories for the reaction path, we can detect VRI point at which the reaction path branches.

Investigation on combustion characteristics of crude rice bran oil methyl ester blend as a heavy duty automotive engine fuel  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the present work, an attempt was made to test the suitability of crude rice bran oil methyl ester (CRBME) blend as a heavy duty automotive engine fuel. A four stroke, six cylinder direct injection 117.6 kW turbo-charged compression ignition (CI) engine was used for the work. The operation of the engine with CRBME blend showed that the peak pressure increased with lower maximum rate of pressure rise and maximum heat release rate with shorter delay period. Burning rate of the CRBME blend was slower and required a higher crank angle to complete the combustion cycle when compared to diesel. The brake thermal efficiency of the CRBME blend was lower than that of diesel at all speeds except at 2300rpm. As the measured combustion and performance parameters for CRBME blend differs only by a smaller magnitude when compared with diesel, this investigation ensures the suitability of the CRBME blend as fuel for heavy duty automotive engine without any design modifications [Received: August 12, 2010; Accepted: August 29, 2010

Seasonal variation of CH4 emissions from central California  

NLE Websites -- All DOE Office Websites (Extended Search)

Seasonal variation of CH4 emissions from central California Seasonal variation of CH4 emissions from central California Title Seasonal variation of CH4 emissions from central California Publication Type Journal Article Year of Publication 2012 Authors Jeong, Seongeun, Chuanfeng Zhao, Arlyn E. Andrews, Laura Bianco, James M. Wilczak, and Marc L. Fischer Journal Journal of Geophysical Research - Atmospheres Volume 117 Issue D11 Keywords atmospheric transport, emission inventory, greenhouse gas, inverse model, methane Abstract We estimate seasonal variations in methane (CH4) emissions from central California from December 2007 through November 2008 by comparing CH4 mixing ratios measured at a tall tower with transport model predictions based on a global 1° a priori CH4emissions map (EDGAR32) and a 10 km seasonally varying California-specific map, calibrated to statewide by CH4emission totals. Atmospheric particle trajectories and surface footprints are computed using the Weather Research and Forecasting and Stochastic Time-Inverted Lagrangian Transport models. Uncertainties due to wind velocity and boundary layer mixing depth are evaluated using measurements from radar wind profilers. CH4signals calculated using the EDGAR32 emission model are larger than those based on the California-specific model and in better agreement with measurements. However, Bayesian inverse analyses using the California-specific and EDGAR32 maps yield comparable annually averaged posterior CH4emissions totaling 1.55 ± 0.24 times and 1.84 ± 0.27 times larger than the California-specific prior emissions, respectively, for a region of central California within approximately 150 km of the tower. If these results are applicable across California, state total CH4 emissions would account for approximately 9% of state total greenhouse gas emissions. Spatial resolution of emissions within the region near the tower reveal seasonality expected from several biogenic sources, but correlations in the posterior errors on emissions from both prior models indicate that the tower footprints do not resolve spatial structure of emissions. This suggests that including additional towers in a measurement network will improve the regional specificity of the posterior estimates.

Rate constants for the reaction of OH radicals and F atoms with trimethoxymethane and the reaction of A radicals with O{sub 2} were k{sub 1} = (6.0 {+-} 0.5) {times} 10{sup {minus}12}, k{sub 3} = (3.0 {+-} 0.7) {times} 10{sup {minus}10}, and k{sub 2} = (9.2 {+-} 1.5) {times} 10{sup {minus}12} cm{sup 3}/molecule s, respectively. Relative rate techniques were used to measure k(Cl + trimethoxymethane) = (1.5 {+-} 0.2) {times} 10{sup {minus}10} cm{sup 3}/molecule s. OH-radical-initiated oxidation of trimethoxymethane in air gives dimethyl carbonate in a molar yield of 81 {+-} 10%. These results are discussed with respect to the atmospheric chemistry of automotive fuel additives.

A Ball Lightning Model as a Possible Explanation of Recently Reported Cavity Lights  

SciTech Connect

The salient features of cavity lights, in particular, mobile luminous objects (MLO's), as have been experimentally observed in superconducting accelerator cavities, are summarized. A model based upon standard electromagnetic interactions between a small particle and the 1.5 GHz cavity excitation field is described. This model can explain some features of these data, in particular, the existence of particle orbits without wall contact. While this result is an important success for the model, it is detailed why the model as it stands is incomplete. It is argued that no avenues for a suitable extension of the model through established physics appear evident, which motivates an investigation of a model based upon a more exotic object, ball lightning. As discussed, further motivation derives from the fact that there are significant similarities in many of the qualitative features of ball lightning and MLO's, even though they appear in quite different circumstances and differ in scale by orders of magnitude. The ball lightning model, which incorporates electromagnetic charges and currents, is based on a symmetrized set of Maxwell's equations in which the electromagnetic sources and fields are characterized by a process called dyality rotation. It is shown that a consistent mathematical description of dyality rotation as a physical process can be achieved by adding suitable (phenomenological) current terms to supplement the usual current terms in the symmetrized Maxwell's equations. These currents, which enable the conservation of electric and magnetic charge, are called vacuum currents. It is shown that the proposed ball lightning model offers a good qualitative explanation of the perplexing aspects of the MLO data. Avenues for further study are indicated.

Influence of propane on CO2/CH4 and N2/CH4 separations in CHA zeolite membranes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Two types of CHA zeolite membranes (SAPO-34, SSZ-13) were used for CO2/CH4, N2/CH4, and CO2/i-butane separations at both low (270 and 350 kPa) and high (1.73 MPa) pressures. The SSZ-13 membranes were more selective, with CO2/CH4 separation selectivities as high as 280 and N2/CH4 separation selectivities of 12 at 270 kPa feed pressure. For both types of membranes, selectivities and permeances decreased as the feed pressure increased. The CO2/i-butane separation selectivities were greater than 500,000 for SAPO-34 membranes, indicating extremely low densities of defects because i-butane is too large to enter the CHA pores. The CO2/i-butane selectivities were smaller for SSZ-13 membranes (2,800–20,000), in part because the SSZ-13 layer was on the outside of the porous mullite tubes and sealing the membrane on the zeolite surface was more difficult than for the SAPO-34 membranes that were grown on the inside of glazed alumina tubes. Propane, in feed concentrations from 1 to 9%, significantly influenced separations by decreasing permeances in most cases. The effect was larger for N2/CH4 than for CO2/CH4 mixtures, apparently because the more strongly-adsorbing CO2 competes better than N2 with propane for adsorption sites. Although propane caused permeances to decrease significantly over time, selectivities decreased much less. Propane decreased permeances more for SAPO-34 membranes than for SSZ-13 membranes at 350 kPa, and at high pressure propane even increased CO2 permeances and decreased CH4 permeances in SSZ-13 membranes, thus significantly increasing CO2/CH4 selectivities. Propane permeances reached steady state relatively quickly because its permeation was mostly through defects, but CO2, N2, and CH4 permeances did not stabilize in the presence of propane, even after seven days. The effects of propane were reversible when it was removed from the feed and the membranes were heated.

A comparative evaluation of Al 2 O 3 coated low heat rejection diesel engine performance and emission characteristics using fuel as rice bran and pongamia methyl ester  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this study for the first time a nanoceramic Al 2 O 3 was used as a coatingmaterial in the low heat rejection engine concept. Experiments were conducted on single cylinder four stroke water cooled and direct injection diesel engine. First the engine was tested at different load conditions without coating. Then combustion chamber surfaces (cylinder head cylinder liner valves and piston crown face) were coated with nanoceramic material of Al 2 O 3 using plasma spray method. Comparative evaluation on performance and emission characteristics using fuel as rice bran methyl ester pongamia methyl ester and biodiesel/diesel fuel mixtures was studied in the ceramiccoated and uncoated engines under the same running conditions. An increase in engine power and a decrease in specific fuel consumption as well as significant improvements in exhaust gas emissions (except NOx) and smoke density were observed in the ceramiccoated engines compared with those of the uncoated engine.

Study of nuclei far from stability with AYE-Ball array  

SciTech Connect

The coupling of a Compton-suppressed Ge (CsGe) detector array to a recoil mass separator (RMS) has seen limited use in the past due to the low efficiency for measuring recoil-{gamma} ray coincidences (< 0.1%). With the building of new generation recoil separators and gamma-ray arrays, a substantial increase in detection efficiency has been achieved. This allows for the opportunity to measure excited states in nuclei with cross-sections approaching 100 nb. In this paper, results from the coupling of a modest array of CsGe detectors (AYE-Ball) with a recoil separator (FMA) will be presented.

Phase evolution in carbide dispersion strengthened nanostructured copper composite by high energy ball milling  

SciTech Connect

In this study, high-energy ball milling was applied to synthesis in situ nanostructured copper based composite reinforced with metal carbides. Cu, M (M=W or Ti) and graphite powder mixture were mechanically alloyed for various milling time in a planetary ball mill with composition of Cu-20vol%WC and Cu-20vol%TiC. Then the as-milled powder were compacted at 200 to 400 MPa and sintered in a vacuum furnace at 900 Degree-Sign C. The results of X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive spectroscopy analysis showed that formation of tungsten carbides (W{sub 2}C and WC phases) was observed after sintering of Cu-W-C mixture while TiC precipitated in as-milled powder of Cu-Ti-C composite after 5 h and become amorphous with longer milling. Mechanism of MA explained the cold welding and fracturing event during milling. Cu-W-C system shows fracturing event is more dominant at early stage of milling and W particle still existed after milling up to 60 h. While in Cu-Ti-C system, cold welding is more dominant and all Ti particles dissolved into Cu matrix.

Charged Q-balls and boson stars and dynamics of charged test particles  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We construct electrically charged Q-balls and boson stars in a model with a scalar self-interaction potential resulting from gauge mediated supersymmetry breaking. We discuss the properties of these solutions in detail and emphasize the differences to the uncharged case. We observe that Q-balls can only be constructed up to a maximal value of the charge of the scalar field, while for boson stars the interplay between the attractive gravitational force and the repulsive electromagnetic force determines their behaviour. We find that the vacuum is stable with respect to pair production in the presence of our charged boson stars. We also study the motion of charged, massive test particles in the space-time of boson stars. We find that in contrast to charged black holes the motion of charged test particles in charged boson star space-times is planar, but that the presence of the scalar field plays a crucial role for the qualitative features of the trajectories. Applications of this test particle motion can be made in the study of extreme-mass ratio inspirals (EMRIs) as well as astrophysical plasmas relevant e.g. in the formation of accretion discs and polar jets of compact objects.

Ab initio molecular orbital study on the gas phase SN2 reaction F? + \\{CH3Cl\\} ? CH3F + Cl?  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Ab-initio molecular orbital (MO) and direct ab initio dynamics calculations have been applied to the gas phase SN2 reaction F? + \\{CH3Cl\\} ? CH3F + Cl?. Several basis sets were examined in order to select the most convenient and best fitted basis set to that of high-quality calculations. The Hartree–Fock (HF) 3?21+G(d) calculation reasonably represents a potential energy surface calculated at the MP2/6?311++G(2df,2pd) level. A direct ab initio dynamics calculation at the HF/3?21+G(d) level was carried out for the SN2 reaction. A full dimensional ab initio potential energy surface including all degrees of freedom was used in the dynamics calculation. Total energies and gradients were calculated at each time step. Two initial configurations at time zero were examined in the direct dynamics calculations: one is a near collinear collision, and the other is a side-attack collision. It was found that in the near collinear collision almost all total available energy is partitioned into two modes: the relative translational mode between the products (?40%) and the C ? F stretching mode (?60%). The other internal modes of CH3F were still in the ground state. The lifetimes of the early- and late-complexes F? … \\{CH3Cl\\} and FCH3 … Cl? are significantly short enough to dissociate directly to the products. On the other hand, in the side-attack collision, the relative translation energy was about 20% of total available energy.

Mini ball grid array (mBGA) assembly on MCM-L boards  

SciTech Connect

Sandia National Laboratories has developed a chip scale packaging technology called mini Ball Grid Array (mBGA). The mBGA is a flip chip die, obtained by redistributing peripheral pads in existing dies to an area array of pads 10 mils or larger in diameter with a minimum pitch of 20 mils. The peripheral pads are redistributed to area array pads using two polyimide dielectric and two metal conductor layers. mBGA can be closely tiled together on a substrate to yield a very high circuit density. In an earlier report, the authors presented the results on the reliability and thermal performance of mBGA on silicon and ceramic substrates. In this report, they present an mBGA cost analysis, improvements in the mBGA bump adhesion, and reliability and thermal performance of mBGA assemblies on FR-4 boards.

Performance improvement of silicon nitride ball bearings by ion implantation. CRADA final report  

SciTech Connect

The present report summarizes technical results of CRADA No. ORNL 92-128 with the Pratt and Whitney Division of United Technologies Corporation. The stated purpose of the program was to assess the 3effect of ion implantation on the rolling contact performance of engineering silicon nitride bearings, to determine by post-test analyses of the bearings the reasons for improved or reduced performance and the mechanisms of failure, if applicable, and to relate the overall results to basic property changes including but not limited to swelling, hardness, modulus, micromechanical properties, and surface morphology. Forty-two control samples were tested to an intended runout period of 60 h. It was possible to supply only six balls for ion implantation, but an extended test period goal of 150 h was used. The balls were implanted with C-ions at 150 keV to a fluence of 1.1 {times} 10{sup 17}/cm{sup 2}. The collection of samples had pre-existing defects called C-cracks in the surfaces. As a result, seven of the control samples had severe spalls before reaching the goal of 60 h for an unacceptable failure rate of 0.003/sample-h. None of the ion-implanted samples experienced engineering failure in 150 h of testing. Analytical techniques have been used to characterize ion implantation results, to characterize wear tracks, and to characterize microstructure and impurity content. In possible relation to C-cracks. It is encouraging that ion implantation can mitigate the C-crack failure mode. However, the practical implications are compromised by the fact that bearings with C-cracks would, in no case, be acceptable in engineering practice, as this type of defect was not anticipated when the program was designed. The most important reason for the use of ceramic bearings is energy efficiency.

A comparative study of Al2O3 coated LHR engine characteristic using rice bran and mahua methyl ester as a fuel  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this study, for the first time, a nano material of Al2O3 was used as ceramic layer in low heat rejection engine concepts. The coating was carried out by plasma spray method on the combustion chamber surfaces (cylinder head, cylinder liner, valves and crown surfaces) of the DI diesel engine. A comparative evaluation of Al2O3 coated engine was carried out between two types of biodiesel (methyl ester of rice bran and mahua oil) and diesel. Experiments were conducted on single cylinder, four strokes, water cooled and direct injection diesel engine. The test run was also repeated for uncoated engine and compared. The results indicated that, an increase in engine power (6.3-11.4%) and decrease in specific fuel consumption (0.8-10.9%), as well as significant improvements in exhaust gas emissions (except NOx) and smoke opacity (19.6-28.9%) were observed in Al2O3 coated engine compared with that of the uncoated engine.

Test Plan: WIPP bin-scale CH TRU waste tests  

SciTech Connect

This WIPP Bin-Scale CH TRU Waste Test program described herein will provide relevant composition and kinetic rate data on gas generation and consumption resulting from TRU waste degradation, as impacted by synergistic interactions due to multiple degradation modes, waste form preparation, long-term repository environmental effects, engineered barrier materials, and, possibly, engineered modifications to be developed. Similar data on waste-brine leachate compositions and potentially hazardous volatile organic compounds released by the wastes will also be provided.

Impact-absorbing Materials in Reducing Brain Vibration Caused by Ball-to-head Impact in Soccer  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract There has been a long debate among researchers on whether soccer heading is capable of causing brain trauma. A recent study suggests that headings exceeding a threshold level of 855 to 1,550 per year, results in microstructural abnormalities in the brain's white matter. This shows that brain trauma is caused by cumulative effect of repetitive headings. The use of protective headgear is one of the suggested preventive measures to protect the brain especially for younger players. Researchers have tested several commercial headgears and found that they are only effective in head-to-head impact, but ineffective in attenuating impact caused by heading. This is due to the fact that soccer ball is compliant in nature relative to the head. The aim of this study is to investigate materials that can be utilised to minimise the acceleration of the brain caused by soccer heading. A vertical drop ball test was conducted on an instrumented dummy skull. The inner cavity of the skull is filled with ultrasound gel that represents the brain. Six impact-absorbing materials were tested to determine the most effective material that reduces the acceleration of the brain substitute. The speed of the ball before and after impact as well as impact duration were measured using high-speed camera. Coefficient of restitution was calculated to ensure the material is not only capable of reducing the brain acceleration, but also maintains heading performance. It was found that polymer kneepad foam is the most effective material that minimises the acceleration of brain substitute whilst maintaining the speed of the ball after impact.

ChIP-seq Identification of Weakly Conserved Heart Enhancers  

SciTech Connect

Accurate control of tissue-specific gene expression plays a pivotal role in heart development, but few cardiac transcriptional enhancers have thus far been identified. Extreme non-coding sequence conservation successfully predicts enhancers active in many tissues, but fails to identify substantial numbers of heart enhancers. Here we used ChIP-seq with the enhancer-associated protein p300 from mouse embryonic day 11.5 heart tissue to identify over three thousand candidate heart enhancers genome-wide. Compared to other tissues studied at this time-point, most candidate heart enhancers are less deeply conserved in vertebrate evolution. Nevertheless, the testing of 130 candidate regions in a transgenic mouse assay revealed that most of them reproducibly function as enhancers active in the heart, irrespective of their degree of evolutionary constraint. These results provide evidence for a large population of poorly conserved heart enhancers and suggest that the evolutionary constraint of embryonic enhancers can vary depending on tissue type.

A PRECESSING JET IN THE CH Cyg SYMBIOTIC SYSTEM  

SciTech Connect

Jets have been detected in only a few symbiotic binaries to date, and CH Cyg is one of them. In 2001, a non-relativistic jet was detected in CH Cyg for the first time in X-rays. We carried out coordinated Chandra, Hubble Space Telescope (HST), and VLA observations in 2008 to study the propagation of this jet and its interaction with the circumbinary medium. We detected the jet with Chandra and HST and determined that the apex has expanded to the south from {approx}300 AU to {approx}1400 AU, with the shock front propagating with velocity <100 km s{sup -1}. The shock front has significantly slowed down since 2001. Unexpectedly, we also discovered a powerful jet in the NE-SW direction, in the X-ray, optical and radio. This jet has a multi-component structure, including an inner jet and a counterjet at {approx}170 AU, and a SW component ending in several clumps extending out to {approx}750 AU. The structure of the jet and the curvature of the outer portion of the SW jet suggest an episodically powered precessing jet or a continuous precessing jet with occasional mass ejections or pulses. We carried out detailed spatial mapping of the X-ray emission and correlation with the optical and radio emission. X-ray spectra were extracted from the central source, inner NE counterjet, and the brightest clump at a distance of {approx}500 AU from the central source. We discuss the initial results of our analyses, including the multi-component spectral fitting of the jet components and of the central source.

Description of a solder pulse generator for the single step formation of ball grid arrays  

SciTech Connect

The traditional geometry for surface mount devices is the peripheral array where the leads are on the edges of the device. As the technology drives towards high input/output (I/O) count (increasing number of leads) and smaller packages with finer pitch (less distance between peripheral leads), limitations on peripheral surface mount devices arise. The leads on these fine pitch devices are fragile and can be easily bent. It becomes increasingly difficult to deliver solder past to leads spaced as little as 0.012 inch apart. Too much solder mass can result in bridging between leads while too little solder can contribute to the loss of mechanical and electrical continuity. A solution is to shift the leads from the periphery of the device to the area under the device. This scheme is called areal array packaging and is exemplified by the ball grid array (BGA) package. A system has been designed and constructed to deposit an entire array of several hundred uniform solder droplets onto a printed circuit board in a fraction of a second. The solder droplets wet to the interconnect lands on a pc board and forms a basis for later application of a BGA device. The system consists of a piezoelectric solder pulse unit, heater controls, an inert gas chamber and an analog power supply/pulse unit.

Microscopic mechanisms of metastable phase formation during ball milling of intermetallic TiAl phases  

SciTech Connect

Powders of the intermetallic equilibrium phases {alpha}{sub 2}-Ti{sub 3}Al, {gamma}-TiAl and TiAl{sub 3} were ball milled in order to investigate the microscopic origins of the energetic destabilization and the transformation into metastable phases during the milling process. It was found that the intermetallic phases were chemically partially disordered on milling followed by the transformation into solid solution phases after long milling. In detail, for the {gamma} phase, the formation of numerous deformation twins, thin h.c.p. lamellae and lamellae of the 9R phase formed by an antitwin operation was observed by TEM. The disordering of the D0{sub 22}-TiAl{sub 3} phase occurred inhomogeneously in the material via the formation of antiphase boundaries on (001) planes, resulting in a f.c.c. solid solution in the final state. In summary, it can be concluded that the formation of the observed metastable phases results from chemical disordering, whereas the excess enthalpy of grain boundaries plays only a minor role for the energetical destabilization of the intermetallic compounds during milling in this case.

Ligand Lone-Pair Influence on Hydrocarbon C-H Activation: A Computational Perspective  

SciTech Connect

Mid to late transition metal complexes that break hydrocarbon C?H bonds by transferring the hydrogen to a heteroatom ligand while forming a metal?alkyl bond offer a promising strategy for C?H activation. Here we report a density functional (B3LYP, M06, and X3LYP) analysis of cis-(acac){sub 2}MX and TpM(L)X (M = Ir, Ru, Os, and Rh; acac = acetylacetonate, Tp = tris(pyrazolyl)borate; X = CH{sub 3}, OH, OMe, NH{sub 2}, and NMe{sub 2}) systems for methane C?H bond activation reaction kinetics and thermodynamics. We address the importance of whether a ligand lone pair provides an intrinsic kinetic advantage through possible electronic d{sub ?}?p{sub ?} repulsions for M?OR and M?NR{sub 2} systems versus M?CH{sub 3} systems. This involves understanding the energetic impact of the X ligand group on ligand loss, C?H bond coordination, and C?H bond cleavage steps as well as understanding how the nucleophilicity of the ligand X group, the electrophilicity of the transition metal center, and cis-ligand stabilization effect influence each of these steps. We also explore how spectator ligands and second- versus third-row transition metal centers impact the energetics of each of these C?H activation steps.

Direct dynamics simulation of dioxetane formation and decomposition via the singlet ·O–O–CHCH2 · biradical: Non-RRKM dynamics  

SciTech Connect

Electronic structure calculations and direct chemical dynamics simulations are used to study the formation and decomposition of dioxetane on its ground state singlet potential energy surface. The stationary points for 1O2 + C2H4, the singlet {center_dot}O-O-CH2-CH2{center_dot} biradical, the transition state (TS) connecting this biradical with dioxetane, and the two transition states and gauche {center_dot}O-CH2-CH2-O{center_dot} biradical connecting dioxetane with the formaldehyde product molecules are investigated at different levels of electronic structure theory including UB3LYP, UMP2, MRMP2, and CASSCF and a range of basis sets. The UB3LYP/6-31G* method was found to give representative energies for the reactive system and was used as a model for the simulations. UB3LYP/6-31G* direct dynamics trajectories were initiated at the TS connecting the {center_dot}O-O-CH2-CH2{center_dot} biradical and dioxetane by sampling the TS's vibrational energy levels, and rotational and reaction coordinate energies, with Boltzmann distributions at 300, 1000, and 1500 K. This corresponds to the transition state theory model for trajectories that pass the TS. The trajectories were directed randomly towards both the biradical and dioxetane. A small fraction of the trajectories directed towards the biradical recrossed the TS and formed dioxetane. The remainder formed 1O2 + C2H4 and of these {approx} 40% went directly from the TS to 1O2 + C2H4 without getting trapped and forming an intermediate in the {center_dot}O-O- CH2-CH2{center_dot} biradical potential energy minimum, a non-statistical result. The dioxetane molecules which are formed dissociate to two formaldehyde molecules with a rate constant two orders of magnitude smaller than that predicted by Rice-Ramsperger-Kassel-Marcus theory. The reaction dynamics from dioxetane to the formaldehyde molecules do not follow the intrinsic reaction coordinate or involve trapping in the gauche {center_dot}O-CH2-CH2-O{center_dot} biradical potential energy minimum. Important non-statistical dynamics are exhibited for this reactive system.

Evaluation of Mechanical Properties of Nuclear Materials Using Non-Destructive Ball Indentation Technique  

SciTech Connect

Integrity of structural components depends on the deformation and fracture behavior of materials. For evaluating the material condition in-service, it is generally not feasible or practical or advisable to cut samples from operating structures. Non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques are required to evaluate the mechanical properties. Although several NDT techniques such as ultrasound, magnetic strength, Barkhausen noise, microhardness etc., are employed for estimating the mechanical property degradation, these methodologies are generally empirical and indirect. Automated Ball Indentation (ABI) is a non-destructive testing technique for direct measurement of mechanical and fracture properties of metallic engineering materials. Because of the small area over which the test is carried out, it is possible to determine point to point variations in the mechanical and fracture properties, such as those that exist in weldments. Although ABI technique is non-intrusive, it is a state-of-the-art mechanical test that measures directly the current/local deformation behavior of the material. In this paper, we present results from studies on the application of ABI technique to determine tensile and fracture properties of ferritic steels, an austenitic stainless steel, a nickel base superalloy and Zircaloy in different thermo-mechanical conditions. The effects of aging and cold work on these properties were determined from the ABI tests. Gradients in mechanical properties of ferritic steel welds, particularly in the narrow heat-affected zone, were clearly established. ABI technique was found to be useful in determining the anisotropy in the tensile properties of Zircaloy cladding tubes. The technique has potential as a non-destructive method for assessing structural integrity of aged components. (authors)

Determination of the Nonlethal Margin Inside the Visible 'Ice-Ball' During Percutaneous Cryoablation of Renal Tissue  

SciTech Connect

Objective. The study was designed to determine the distance between the visible 'ice-ball' and the lethal temperature isotherm for normal renal tissue during cryoablation. Methods. The Animal Care Committee approved the study. Nine adult swine were used: three to determine the optimum tissue stain and six to test the hypotheses. They were anesthetized and the left renal artery was catheterized under fluoroscopy. Under MR guidance, the kidney was ablated and (at end of a complete ablation) the nonfrozen renal tissue (surrounding the 'ice-ball') was stained via renal artery catheter. Kidneys were explanted and sent for slide preparation and examination. From each slide, we measured the maximum, minimum, and an in-between distance from the stained to the lethal tissue boundaries (margin). We examined each slide for evidence of 'heat pump' effect. Results. A total of 126 measurements of the margin (visible 'ice-ball'-lethal margin) were made. These measurements were obtained from 29 slides prepared from the 6 test animals. Mean width was 0.75 {+-} 0.44 mm (maximum 1.15 {+-} 0.51 mm). It was found to increase adjacent to large blood vessels. No 'heat pump' effect was noted within the lethal zone. Data are limited to normal swine renal tissue. Conclusions. Considering the effects of the 'heat pump' phenomenon for normal renal tissue, the margin was measured to be 1.15 {+-} 0.51 mm. To approximate the efficacy of the 'gold standard' (partial nephrectomy, {approx}98 %), a minimum margin of 3 mm is recommended (3 Multiplication-Sign SD). Given these assumptions and extrapolating for renal cancer, which reportedly is more cryoresistant with a lethal temperature of -40 Degree-Sign C, the recommended margin is 6 mm.

Rotating machinery dynamics simulation. I. Rigid systems with ball bearing nonlinearities and outer ring ovality under rotating unbalance excitation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The radial clearance in rolling bearing systems required to compensate for dimensional changes associated with thermal expansion of the various parts during operation may cause dimensional attrition and comprise bearing life if unloaded operation occurs and balls skid [D. Childs and D. Moyer ASME J. Eng. Gas Turb. Power 107 152–159 (1985)]. Also it can cause jumps in the response to unbalance excitation. These undesirable effects may be eliminated by introducing two or more loops into one of the bearing races so that at least two points of the ring circumference provide a positive zero clearance [D. Childs Handbook of Rotordynamics edited by F. Ehrich (McGraw-Hill NY 1992)]. The deviation of the outer ring with two loops known as ovality is one of the bearing distributed defects. Although this class of imperfections has received much work none of the available studies has simulated the effect of the outer ring ovality on the dynamic behavior of rotating machinery under rotating unbalance with consideration of ball bearing nonlinearities shaft elasticity and speed of rotation. To fill this gap the equations of motion of a rotor–ball bearing system are formulated using finite-elements (FE) discretization and Lagrange’s equations. The analyses are specialized to a rigid-rotor system by retaining the rigid body modes only in the FE solution. Samples of the results are presented in both time domain and frequency domain for a system with and without outer ring ovality. It is found that with ideal bearings (no ovality) the vibration spectrum is qualitatively and quantitatively the same in both the horizontal and vertical directions. When the ring ovality is introduced however the spectrum in both orthogonal planes is no longer similar. And magnitude of the bearing load has increased in the form of repeated random impacts between balls and rings in the horizontal direction (direction of maximum clearance) compared to a continuous contact along the vertical direction (direction of positive zero clearance). This underlines the importance of the vibration measuring probe’s direction with respect to the outer ring axes to capture impact-induced vibrations. Moreover when the harmonic excitation is increased for a system with ideal bearings the spectral peaks above forcing frequency have shifted to a higher-frequency region indicating some sort of a hard spring mechanism inherent in the system. Another observation is that for the same external excitation vibration amplitude at forcing frequency in the bearing force spectrum is the same for systems with or without outer ring ovality.

The adsorption and surface chemistry CH{sub 3} on Pt(111)  

SciTech Connect

The adsorption and surface chemistry of methyl radicals on Pt(111) has been studied by temperature programmed desorption (TPD), reflection-adsorption infrared reflection spectroscopy (RAIRS), and isotopic tracer experiments. Methyl radicals were introduced on the surface directly from the gas using a methyl radical source based on the pyrolysis of azomethane, CH{sub 3}NNCH{sub 3}. Methyl radicals adsorb with near-unity sticking probability on clean Pt(111) at 150 K to form surface methyl groups detectable by RAIRS. Between 180 K and 300 K the methyl groups react with surface hydrogen to form CH{sub 4} which desorbs from the surface. The hydrogen is derived from adsorption of H{sub 2} and dehydrogenation of adsorbed CH{sub 3}. At high methyl coverages C-C bond formation is observed which leads to the production of surface ethylidyne, {triple_bond}C-CH{sub 3}. Kinetic modeling of the surface reaction will be discussed.

Impact of high energy ball milling on the nanostructure of magnetite–graphite and magnetite–graphite–molybdenum disulphide blends  

SciTech Connect

Different, partly complementary and partly redundant characterization methods were applied to study the transition of magnetite, graphite and MoS{sub 2} powders to mechanically alloyed nanostructures. The applied methods were: Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Mössbauer spectroscopy (MS), Raman spectroscopy (RS), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The main objective was to prepare a model material providing the essential features of a typical tribofilm forming during automotive braking, and to assess the impact of different constituents on sliding behaviour and friction level. Irrespective of the initial grain size, the raw materials were transferred to a nanocrystalline structure and mixed on a nanoscopic scale during high energy ball milling. Whereas magnetite remained almost unchanged, graphite and molybdenum disulphide were transformed to a nanocrystalline and highly disordered structure. The observed increase of the coefficient of friction was attributed to a loss of lubricity of the latter ingredient due to this transformation and subsequent oxidation. - Highlights: • Characterization of microstructural changes induced by high energy ball milling • Assessment of the potential of different characterization methods • Impact of mechanical alloying on tribological performance revealed by tests • Preparation of an artificial third body resembling the one formed during braking.

Mechanical alloying of Si and Ge in a planetary ball mill: Milling parameters and microscopic evolution of alloy formation  

SciTech Connect

The external parameters geometry and frequency of a planetary ball mill were adjusted in order to minimize the duration of mechanically induced Si-Ge alloy formation. Experimental results were compared with theoretical calculations on impact energies and milling power. It was found that a planetary ball mill with a ratio of the planetary to the system wheel`s frequency of {minus}3 delivers the best milling performance for vial sizes between 0.2 and 0.33 that of the system wheel size. Microstructural investigations on powder compacts revealed that a solid state diffusion mechanism of Ge into the harder Si seems to be the responsible process for realizing a homogeneous Si-Ge alloy. Crystallite sizes of the processed powders were 30 nm. The knowledge of the influence of external milling parameters on the comminution and alloying behavior of substances and the resulting internal structure of the processed ingots may help in a future correlation between thermoelectrical properties and microstructure. {copyright} {ital 1995} {ital American} {ital Institute} {ital of} {ital Physics}.

SciTech Connect

Absolute rate coefficients for reactions of Cl atoms with selectively deuterated ethanols have been measured between 295 and 600 K by a laser-photolysis/CW infrared absorption method. Yields of HCl are determined by comparison with the Cl + ethane or Cl + propane reaction, permitting site-specific branching fractions to be derived. Smog chamber experiments with Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) detection are performed to determine products of the room-temperature Cl + C{sub 2}H{sub 5}OH reaction. The rate coefficients for all ethanols display only a slight temperature dependence and can be parameterized by simple Arrhenius expressions: k{sub CH{sub 3}CH{sub 2}OH} = (9.4 {+-} 1.4) x 10{sup {minus}11}e{sup (45 {+-} 32)/T}, k{sub CD{sub 3}CH{sub 2}OH} = (6.6 {+-} 0.9) x 10{sup {minus}11}e{sup (90 {+-} 40)/T}, and k{sub CH{sub 3}CD{sub 2}OH} = (6.9 {+-} 0.7) x 10{sup {minus}11}e{sup ({minus}76 {+-} 40)/T} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1} (error bars {+-}2{sigma}). Combining the results from the present work with literature data, the authors recommend k{sub CH{sub 3}CH{sub 2}OH} = (9.5 {+-} 1.9) x 10{sup {minus}11} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1} at 298 K. The room-temperature contribution of abstraction at the methyl site is found to be 0.07 & 0.02 from FTIR product analysis of the Cl + CH{sub 3}CH{sub 2}OH reaction and 0.08 {+-} 0.02 from laser photolysis/CW infrared absorption measurements (error bars {+-}2{sigma}). Abstraction of the hydroxyl hydrogen is negligible. A small but significant amount of HCl ({nu} = 1) is produced in the Cl + CD{sub 3}CH{sub 2}OH and Cl + CH{sub 3}CH{sub 2}OH reactions at room temperature.

Upper bound of polymeric membranes for mixed-gas CO2/CH4 separations  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Membrane polymers with high permeability and high selectivity are preferred for gas separations. However, there exists a trade-off or upper bound, i.e., polymers with higher permeability often exhibit lower selectivity, and vice versa. The upper bound for separation of various gas pairs has been empirically drawn and theoretically rationalized using pure-gas data. However, for CO2/CH4 separation, the high pressure CO2 and non-methane hydrocarbons can plasticize polymers, increasing mixed-gas CO2 permeability and decreasing mixed-gas CO2/CH4 selectivity. This study aims to apply a modified free volume theory to interpret CO2/CH4 separation performance in polymeric membranes. The model satisfactorily describes the pure-gas upper bounds for various gas pairs including CO2/CH4, the effect of high pressure CO2 on mixed-gas CO2/CH4 separation properties, and the practical mixed-gas upper bound for CO2/CH4 separations. The CO2 is found to have an estimated glass transition temperature of 108 K. The assumptions of this model are discussed, and future work to improve this model is proposed.

Roles of chemically inequivalent N(CH3)4 ions in phase transition temperatures in [N(CH3)4]2CoCl4 by single-crystal NMR and MAS NMR  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The temperature dependences of the 1H and 13C spin–lattice relaxation time in the laboratory frame, T1, and in the rotating frame, T1?, in [N(CH3)4]2CoCl4 were measured by static nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magic angle spinning (MAS) NMR. In the ferroelastic phase, 1H T1? underwent molecular motion according to the Bloembergen–Purcell–Pound theory. Two inequivalent ions, a-N(CH3)4 and b-N(CH3)4, were identified by 13C cross polarization (CP)/MAS NMR. On the basis of the 13C NMR results, the existence of two chemically inequivalent a-N(CH3)4 and b-N(CH3)4 ions in the ferroelectric phase and the existence of the ferroelastic twin structure of the N(CH3)4 ions in the ferroelastic phase were discussed.

Tribological contact analysis of a rigid ball sliding on a hard coated surface: Part I: Modelling stresses and strains  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The stress and fracture conditions of a coated surface, that are the origin to wear, were analysed by three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) modelling on microlevel, by stress and strain computer simulations and by experimental studies with a scratch tester. The studied tribological contact was a 0.2 mm radius diamond ball sliding with increasing load on a thin, 2 ?m thick titanium nitride (TiN) coating on a flat high speed steel substrate. The ball was modelled as rigid, the coating linearly elastic and the steel substrate elastic–plastic taking into account strain hardening effects. The stresses and strains generated in the surface during sliding are the result of four different mechanisms: the pulling and pushing by the friction force; the geometrical indent, groove, and torus shaped deformations of the flat surface; the bulk plasticity concentration and curvature minimum effects; and the residual stresses in the coating. In a sliding contact the first crack is initiated at the top of the coating from bending and pulling actions and it grows down through the coating. In the modelled scratch tester system a complex stress field is formed at the surface including remaining residual stresses in the coating behind the sliding contact. The stress fields are very different in a scratched uncoated steel sample. Some residual tensile stresses are formed in the groove behind the tip but they are very much lower than for the TiN coated case. A displacement controlled FEM model was found to better represent the real situation and correspond to experimental results than a force controlled model.

Observation of CH4 and other Non-CO2 Green House Gas Emissions from California  

SciTech Connect

In 2006, California passed the landmark assembly bill AB-32 to reduce California's emissions of greenhouse gases (GHGs) that contribute to global climate change. AB-32 commits California to reduce total GHG emissions to 1990 levels by 2020, a reduction of 25 percent from current levels. To verify that GHG emission reductions are actually taking place, it will be necessary to measure emissions. We describe atmospheric inverse model estimates of GHG emissions obtained from the California Greenhouse Gas Emissions Measurement (CALGEM) project. In collaboration with NOAA, we are measuring the dominant long-lived GHGs at two tall-towers in central California. Here, we present estimates of CH{sub 4} emissions obtained by statistical comparison of measured and predicted atmospheric mixing ratios. The predicted mixing ratios are calculated using spatially resolved a priori CH{sub 4} emissions and surface footprints, that provide a proportional relationship between the surface emissions and the mixing ratio signal at tower locations. The footprints are computed using the Weather Research and Forecast (WRF) coupled to the Stochastic Time-Inverted Lagrangian Transport (STILT) model. Integral to the inverse estimates, we perform a quantitative analysis of errors in atmospheric transport and other factors to provide quantitative uncertainties in estimated emissions. Regressions of modeled and measured mixing ratios suggest that total CH{sub 4} emissions are within 25% of the inventory estimates. A Bayesian source sector analysis obtains posterior scaling factors for CH{sub 4} emissions, indicating that emissions from several of the sources (e.g., landfills, natural gas use, petroleum production, crops, and wetlands) are roughly consistent with inventory estimates, but livestock emissions are significantly higher than the inventory. A Bayesian 'region' analysis is used to identify spatial variations in CH{sub 4} emissions from 13 sub-regions within California. Although, only regions near the tower are significantly constrained by the tower measurements, CH{sub 4} emissions from the south Central Valley appear to be underestimated in a manner consistent with the under-prediction of livestock emissions. Finally, we describe a pseudo-experiment using predicted CH{sub 4} signals to explore the uncertainty reductions that might be obtained if additional measurements were made by a future network of tall-tower stations spread over California. These results show that it should be possible to provide high-accuracy estimates of surface CH{sub 4} emissions for multiple regions as a means to verify future emissions reductions.

Abstract Performance of a four-stroke spark ignition gas engine operated on mixtures of CH4, H2 and CO2 was studied. Experiments were carried out at a constant engine speed of 2,000 rpm and throttle opening of 14% with various equivalence ratios. The results showed that the highest brake power output of 12.5 kW and 35% thermal efficiency were achieved when operated with the mixture of 69.70% CH4, 9.95% H2 and 20.45% CO2 and the equivalence ratios between 1.0 and 0.82.

A facility design for repackaging ORNL CH-TRU legacy waste in Building 3525  

SciTech Connect

For the last 25 years, the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) has conducted operations which have generated solid, contact-handled transuranic (CH-TRU) waste. At present the CH-TRU waste inventory at ORNL is about 3400 55-gal drums retrievably stored in RCRA-permitted, aboveground facilities. Of the 3400 drums, approximately 2600 drums will need to be repackaged. The current US Department of Energy (DOE) strategy for disposal of these drums is to transport them to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in New Mexico which only accepts TRU waste that meets a very specific set of criteria documented in the WIPP-WAC (waste acceptance criteria). This report describes activities that were performed from January 1994 to May 1995 associated with the design and preparation of an existing facility for repackaging and certifying some or all of the CH-TRU drums at ORNL to meet the WIPP-WAC. For this study, the Irradiated Fuel Examination Laboratory (IFEL) in Building 3525 was selected as the reference facility for modification. These design activities were terminated in May 1995 as more attractive options for CH-TRU waste repackaging were considered to be available. As a result, this document serves as a final report of those design activities.

The reaction mechanism involved in the conversion of methanol to gasoline (MTG) over a zeolite catalyst (MTG process) has generated considerable interest, although much controversy still remains over the particular steps which lead to the formation of the first C-C bond. The rotational spectrum of CH[sub 3]OH-CO has been observed in the region 7--18 GHz with a pulsed-beam Fabry-Perot cavity Fourier-transform microwave spectrometer. In order to obtain detailed structural information the spectra of CH[sub 3]OH, CH[sub 3]OD, CD[sub 3]OH, and CD[sub 3]OD combined with CO and [sup 13]CO were examined. Each of the isotopic species studied exhibits two states, which are interpreted as A and E symmetry states arising from internal rotation of the methyl group. The E-state assignments were verified by observing their first-order Stark effect. The structure of the complex is a bent hydrogen bond of the carbon atom of CO at a distance of 2.41 [angstrom] from the hydroxyl hydrogen of methanol and planar heavy atoms. The effective barrier to internal rotation for CH[sub 3]OH-CO, V[sub 3] = 183.0 cm[sup [minus]1], is one-half of the value for the methanol monomer.

Effects of metallic nanoparticle doped flux on the interfacial intermetallic compounds between lead-free solder ball and copper substrate  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Lead free solders currently in use are prone to develop thick interfacial intermetallic compound layers with rough morphology which are detrimental to the long term solder joint reliability. A novel method has been developed to control the morphology and growth of intermetallic compound layers between lead-free Sn–3.0Ag–0.5Cu solder ball and copper substrate by doping a water soluble flux with metallic nanoparticles. Four types of metallic nanoparticles (nickel, cobalt, molybdenum and titanium) were used to investigate their effects on the wetting behavior and interfacial microstructural evaluations after reflow. Nanoparticles were dispersed manually with a water soluble flux and the resulting nanoparticle doped flux was placed on copper substrate. Lead-free Sn–3.0Ag–0.5Cu solder balls of diameter 0.45 mm were placed on top of the flux and were reflowed at a peak temperature of 240 °C for 45 s. Angle of contact, wetting area and interfacial microstructure were studied by optical microscopy, field emission scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. It was observed that the angle of contact increased and wetting area decreased with the addition of cobalt, molybdenum and titanium nanoparticles to flux. On the other hand, wettability improved with the addition of nickel nanoparticles. Cross-sectional micrographs revealed that both nickel and cobalt nanoparticle doping transformed the morphology of Cu6Sn5 from a typical scallop type to a planer one and reduced the intermetallic compound thickness under optimum condition. These effects were suggested to be related to in-situ interfacial alloying at the interface during reflow. The minimum amount of nanoparticles required to produce the planer morphology was found to be 0.1 wt.% for both nickel and cobalt. Molybdenum and titanium nanoparticles neither appear to undergo alloying during reflow nor have any influence at the solder/substrate interfacial reaction. Thus, doping of flux with appropriate metallic nanoparticles can be successfully used to control the morphology and growth of intermetallic compound layers at the solder/substrate interface which is expected to lead to better reliability of electronic devices.

Results of x-ray crystallographic studies of the complex HFe/sub 4/(eta/sup 2/-CH)(CO)/sub 12/ are reported. The complex may provide information that relates to intermediates in some metal-surface catalyzed Fischer-Tropsch reactions. The complex was found to contain a butterfly array of four Fe atoms, each with three terminal carbonyl ligands, with the carbidic C atom nestled near the center of the top of the wings of the Fe/sub 4/ array where it forms a strong C-H-Fe interaction. Measurements of the bond distances are given. (BLM)

Ultraviolet absorption spectra and kinetics of the self-reaction of CH sub 2 Br and CH sub 2 BrO sub 2 radicals in the gas phase at 298 K. [Accelerated electrons  

SciTech Connect

The ultraviolet absorption spectra of CH{sub 2}Br and CH{sub 2}BrO{sub 2} radicals and the kinetics of their self-reactions have been studied in the gas phase at 298 K by using the pulse radiolysis technique. Absorption cross sections were quantified over the wavelength range 220-350 nm. Measured cross sections near the absorption maxima were {sigma}{sub CH{sub 2}Br}(280 nm) = (6.26 {plus minus} 1.15) {times} 10{sup {minus}18} cm{sup 2} molecule{sup {minus} 1}. Errors represent statistical errors (2{sigma}) together with the authors' estimate of potential systematic errors (10%). The absorption cross-sectional data were then used to derive the observed self-reaction rate constants for reactions 1 and 2, defined as {minus}d(R)/dt = 2k{sub obs}(R){sup 2} (R = CH{sub 2}Br or CH{sub 2}BrO{sub 2}) of CH{sub 2}Br + CH{sub 2}BR {yields} products (1), and CH{sub 2}BrO{sub 2} + CH{sub 2}BrO{sub 2} {yields} products (2) k{sub 1} = (2.93 {plus minus} 0.60) {times} 10{sup {minus}11} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1} and k{sub 2obs} = (3.26 {plus minus} 0.31) {times} 10{sup {minus}11} cm{sup 3} molecule{sup {minus}1} s{sup {minus}1} (quoted errors represent 2{sigma}). These results are discussed with respect to previous studies of the absorption spectra and kinetics of peroxy radicals.

Translational/rotational coupling of the hindered CH 3 quantum-rotor in lithium acetate dihydrate  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The multiplet structure of the rotational-tunneling peaks in the inelastic neutron-scattering spectrum of lithium acetate is widely regarded as evidence of coupled pairs of CH 3 quantum rotors. However our molecular-mechanics study which has no adjustable parameters reveals that rotor/rotor coupling is less important than translational/rotational coupling. In order to remain at a potential-energy minimum during CH 3 group reorientation the center-of-mass of this group follows an almost circular path around its time-average position. The energy levels from this dynamical model reproduce the observed tunneling-transitions reasonably well and the predicted rectangular density distribution of the three methyl H-atoms is in good agreement with that measured by single-crystalneutron diffraction.

Single ionization of CH{sub 4} by bare ions: Fully differential cross sections  

SciTech Connect

A theoretical study of fully differential cross sections for the single ionization of CH{sub 4} by collisions with H{sup +}, He{sup 2+}, and C{sup 6+} ions at energies in the order of MeV/amu is presented. We work in terms of the Born-3DW model, which considers a non-Coulomb central potential for the interaction of the active electron with the molecular core. Results obtained with the Born-3DW model are compared to those obtained with the Born-C3 model, which assumes this potential as purely Coulombic. The anisotropic potential of the CH{sub 4} molecule is smoothed through an angular integration, and results are averaged over all the possible orientations of the target molecule. Results for the lesser bound molecular orbitals (1T and 2A{sub 1}) are presented and discussed for different projectile momentum transfers for the coplanar geometry.

Microwave spectroscopy of Lambda-doublet transitions in the ground state of CH  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Lambda-doublet transitions in CH at 3.3 and 0.7 GHz are unusually sensitive to variations in the fine-structure constant and the electron-to-proton mass ratio. We describe methods used to measure the frequencies of these transitions with Hz-level accuracy. We produce a pulsed supersonic beam of cold CH by photodissociation of CHBr3, and we measure the microwave transition frequencies as the molecules propagate through a parallel-plate transmission line resonator. We use the molecules to map out the amplitude and phase of the standing wave field inside the transmission line. We investigate velocity-dependent frequency shifts, showing that they can be strongly suppressed through careful timing of the microwave pulses. We measure the Zeeman and Stark effects of the microwave transitions, and reduce systematic shifts due to magnetic and electric fields to below 1 Hz. We also investigate other sources of systematic uncertainty in the experiment.

Formation and characterization of hydrophobic glass surface treated by atmospheric pressure He/CH4 plasma  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Atmospheric pressure helium plasmas generated in the open air by 13.56?MHz rf power were applied for the glass surface wettability modification. The plasma gas temperature measured by the spectroscopic method was under 400?K which is low enough to treat the samples without thermal damages. The hydrophobicity of the samples determined by the water droplet contact angle method was dependent on the methane gas content and the plasma exposure time. Adding the methane gas by a small amount of 0.25% the contact angle was remarkably increased from 10° to 83° after the 10 s plasma treatment. From the analysis of the treated surface and the plasma it was shown that the deposition of alkane functional groups such as C-H stretch CH2 bend and CH3 bend was one of the contributing factors for the hydrophobicity development. In addition the hydrophobic properties lasted over 2 months even after the single treatment. From the results the atmospheric pressure plasma treatment promises the fast and low-cost method for the thermally-weak surface modification.

This could require removal of all buildings, vaults, tanks, transfer piping, and contaminated soil. No post- closure monitoring would be required because potential sources of contamination would no longer be present. Unrestricted industrial use of clean-closed facilities and sites will be permissi- ble. Impacts to water resources would not be expected from the disposition of new facilities.

This Order and its associated Manual and Guidance set forth the authorities, responsibilities, and requirements for the management of DOE's inventory of HLW, transuranic waste, and low-level waste. Specific to HLW, DOE uses the Nuclear Waste Policy Act definition but has jurisdictional authority consistent with existing law to deter- mine if the waste requires permanent isolation as the appropriate disposal mechanism. This authority is based on enabling legislation in the Atomic Energy Act, sections 202(3) and 202(4)

A more detailed description of geology at INEEL can be reviewed in the SNF & INEL EIS, Volume 2, Part A, Section 4.6 (DOE 1995). 4.6.1 GENERAL GEOLOGY INEEL occupies a relatively flat area on the northwestern edge of the Eastern Snake River Plain. Figure 4-4 shows important geological features of the INEEL area. The area consists of a broad plain that has been built up from the eruptions of multi- ple flows of basaltic lava, which is shown on Figure 4-5. The flows at the surface range in age from 1.2 million to 2,100 years. The Plain is bounded on the north and south by the north-to-north-

The radiation dose values for the var- ious alternatives were then multiplied by the dose-to-risk conversion factors, which are based on the 1993 Limitations of Exposure to Ionizing Radiation (NCRP 1993). DOE has adopted these risk fac- tors of 0.0005 and 0.0004 latent cancer fatality (LCF) for each person-rem of radiation exposure to the general public and worker popu- lation, respectively, for doses less than 20 rem. The factor for the population is slightly higher due to the presence of infants and children who are more sensitive to radiation than the adult worker population.

The area is relatively undisturbed, providing important habi- tat for species native to the region. Vegetation and habitat on INEEL can be grouped into six types: shrub-steppe, juniper woodlands, native grasslands, modified ephemeral playas, lava, and wetland-like areas. Figure 4-16 shows these areas. More than 90 percent of INEEL falls within the shrub-steppe vegetation type. The shrub-steppe vegetation type is dominated by sagebrush (Artemisia spp.), saltbush (Atriplex spp.), and rabbitbrush (Chrysothamnus spp.).

Synthesis of boron suboxide (B{sub 6}O) with ball milled boron oxide (B{sub 2}O{sub 3}) under lower pressure and temperature  

SciTech Connect

Boron reacted with ball milled boron oxide under pressures between 1 and 5 GPa and at temperatures between 1300 and 1700 {sup o}C to afford boron suboxide (B{sub 6}O). Icosahedral B{sub 6}O grains with diameters ranging from 100 nm to 1.3 {mu}m were prepared. The factors that affect the synthesis of B{sub 6}O are investigated. The best sample with crystal size up to 1.3 {mu}m is obtained at 2 GPa and 1400 {sup o}C for 6 h. The indentation experiment gave an average Vickers hardness of 32.3 GPa for bulk B{sub 6}O sample, which is consistent with previous reports. Bulk B{sub 6}O sample exhibits oxidation resistance in air up to 1000 {sup o}C and mild oxidation in the temperatures of 1000-1200 {sup o}C, which is more oxidation resistant than diamond. It is possible that B{sub 6}O could be used as a substitute for diamond in industry because of its relatively mild synthesis conditions, high thermal stability and high hardness. - Graphical abstract: Icosahedral B{sub 6}O grains were prepared for mixtures of boron and ball milled boron oxide at 2 GPa and 1400 {sup o}C, a milder synthesis condition in comparison with previous works.

Tribological contact analysis of a rigid ball sliding on a hard coated surface, Part III: Fracture toughness calculation and influence of residual stresses  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The surface fracture mechanisms, that are the origin to wear, were analysed by three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) modelling on micro-level by stress and strain computer simulations and by experimental studies with a scratch tester. The studied tribological contact was a diamond ball sliding with increasing load on a thin titanium nitride (TiN) coating on a steel substrate. The ball was modelled as rigid, the coating linearly elastic and the steel substrate elastic–plastic taking into account strain hardening effects. In a sliding contact the first crack is initiated at the top of the coating from bending and pulling actions and it grows down through the coating. The effect of initial residual stress fields on coating cracking was approached by carrying out stress simulations with a pre-stressed coating. The stress fields near the indenter were found to relax by plastic deformation to such extent that the remaining stresses had only a marginal effect to macroscopic behavior. Fracture mechanical evaluation of crack driving force and fracture toughness were performed by determining stress intensity factor (SIF) solutions using boundary element analysis. SIF solutions were evaluated for crack fields of different density, location, crack angle, type of loading and mode of loading. The results were utilized to evaluate fracture characteristics and compute fracture toughness for the TiN to high speed steel coating substrate system.

Negative ion motion in the mixtures of SF6 with CF4 and CH4-Ar  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper deals with the measurement of the mobility of negative ions in the mixtures of SF6 with CF4 and the CH4-Ar (50:50) binary mixture with SF6 contents up to 50%. The pulsed Townsend technique was used to observe the integrated ionic avalanches over a range of the density-reduced electric field E/N for which ionization is either negligible or absent, and attachment processes are significant, leading to the formation of mostly SF6-. The E/N range of measurement was from 1 to 70 Td (1 Td=10-17 V cm2), over which the measured mobilities were found to be almost constant. The mobility of the negative ions was also measured for trace amounts of SF6 in CH4 and Ar and 1% CF4, thereby providing a good value of the mobility of SF6- in these pure gases, in order to test the measured mobilities with Blanc’s law. We have found good agreement, within quoted experimental uncertainties, between calculated and measured values.

CO2 and CH4 Fluxes across Polygon Geomorphic Types, Barrow, Alaska, 2006-2010  

DOE Data Explorer (OSTI)

Carbon flux data are reported as Net Ecosystem Exchange (NEE), Gross Ecosystem Exchange (GEE), Ecosystem Respiration (ER), and Methane (CH4) flux. Measurements were made at 82 plots across various polygon geomorphic classes at research sites on the Barrow Environmental Observatory (BEO), the Biocomplexity Experiment site on the BEO, and the International Biological Program (IBP) site a little west of the BEO. This product is a compilation of data from 27 plots as presented in Lara et al. (2012), data from six plots presented in Olivas et al. (2010); and from 49 plots described in (Lara et al. 2014). Measurements were made during the peak of the growing seasons during 2006 to 2010. At each of the measurement plots (except Olivas et al., 2010) four different thicknesses of shade cloth were used to generate CO2 light response curves. Light response curves were used to normalize photosynthetically active radiation that is diurnally variable to a peak growing season average ~400 umolm-2sec-1. At the Olivas et al. (2010) plots, diurnal patterns were characterized by repeated sampling. CO2 measurements were made using a closed-chamber photosynthesis system and CH4 measurements were made using a photo-acoustic multi-gas analyzer. In addition, plot-level measurements for thaw depth (TD), water table depth (WTD), leaf area index (LAI), and normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) are summarized by geomorphic polygon type.

Effects of CH{sub 4} and CO on the reduction of nitric oxide to nitrogen in a discharge reactor  

SciTech Connect

Additives are often added to enhance the efficiency of NO removal. This study uses a radio frequency (rf) discharge to consider the effect of added CH{sub 4} and CO to simulated NO/N{sub 2}/O{sub 2}/H{sub 2}O mixtures on the elevation of NO conversion and the reduction of NO into N{sub 2}. The enhancement levels of NO conversion when using various additives were found to be in this order: +CH{sub 4}>+CO>no additive. NO conversion reached 99.3%, 86.2%, and 77.6% when adding CH{sub 4}, CO, and without additive, respectively, at inlet additive/NO molar ratio (R) = 5 and at 120 W. Moreover, the fraction of total N atoms converted from NO into N{sub 2} (F{sub N2}) was very high, reaching 99.4% and 99.5% when adding CH{sub 2}4 and CO, respectively, at R = 1 and at 120 W. The better operating conditions are using CH{sub 4} as the additive at R = 1 and a power of >60 W to reach a higher NO conversion with a higher F{sub N2}. However, it should be noted that this rf plasma approach is not practical at this stage because of its relative low pressure. 25 refs., 2 figs., 3 tabs.

Infrared diode laser studies of the products from the reaction CH{sub 2}({tilde X}{sup 3}B{sub 1}) + O{sub 2} and from the near-UV photolysis of CH{sub 3}NCS  

SciTech Connect

Absolute yields of CO, CO{sub 2}, and H{sub 2}CO formed in reaction of triplet methylene ({tilde X} {sup 3}B{sub 1} {triple_bond} CH{sub 2}) with O{sub 2} were determined using a flash kinetic spectrometer. CH{sub 2} radicals were generated by excimer laser photolysis of ketene and product formation was monitored by time-resolved infrared diode laser absorption. Reaction was carried out in a static gas cell at room temperature at 1--25 torr. Measured product yields were CO, 0.34 {plus_minus} 0.06; CO{sub 2}, 0.40 {plus_minus} 0.08 H{sub 2}CO, 0.16 {plus_minus} 0.04. Rate constants for production of CO and CO{sub 2} were equivalent to the published rate constant for removal of CH{sub 2}. Indirect evidence indicated that yield of OH is 0.30 {plus_minus} 0.05. Ultraviolet spectrum of methyl isothiocyanate (CH{sub 3}NCS {triple_bond} MITC) and quantum yield for dissociation into methyl isocyanide (CH{sub 3}NC) and atomic sulfur at 308 nm, {Phi} 0.98 {plus_minus} 0.24, were measured. MITC is widely used as a fumigant and readily enters the atmosphere during and after application. Results indicate that photodissociation by sunlight is an effective pathway for removal of MITC from atmosphere. A mechanism is proposed to account for the observed formation of methyl isocyanate (CH{sub 3}NCO) as a secondary product in controlled laboratory studies.

Quantitative Visualization of ChIP-chip Data by Using Linked Views  

SciTech Connect

Most analyses of ChIP-chip in vivo DNA binding have focused on qualitative descriptions of whether genomic regions are bound or not. There is increasing evidence, however, that factors bind in a highly overlapping manner to the same genomic regions and that it is quantitative differences in occupancy on these commonly bound regions that are the critical determinants of the different biological specificity of factors. As a result, it is critical to have a tool to facilitate the quantitative visualization of differences between transcription factors and the genomic regions they bind to understand each factor's unique roles in the network. We have developed a framework which combines several visualizations via brushing-and-linking to allow the user to interactively analyze and explore in vivo DNA binding data of multiple transcription factors. We describe these visualization types and also provide a discussion of biological examples in this paper.

Theoretical study on collision dynamics of H{sup +} + CH{sub 4} at low energies  

SciTech Connect

In this work we make an investigation on collision dynamics of H{sup +} + CH{sub 4} at 30 eV by using time-dependent density functional theory coupled with molecular dynamics approach. All possible reactions are presented based on 9 incident orientations. The calculated fragment intensity is in nice agreement with experimental results. The mechanism of reaction transition for dissociation and proton exchange processes is explained by the intra-molecule energy transfer. However, the energy loss of the proton is in poor agreement with experimental results. The discrepancy is attributed to the mean-field treatment of potential surface. We also studied the dependence on initial velocity of both proton and methane. In addition, we find that for dynamical evolution a different self-interaction correction (SIC) may lead to different results, but with respect to the position of rainbow angle, average-density SIC seems to have reasonable correction.

Tribological contact analysis of a rigid ball sliding on a hard coated surface: Part II: Material deformations, influence of coating thickness and Young's modulus  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Material deformations and the influence of coating thickness and elastic modulus were analysed by three-dimensional finite element method (FEM) modelling on microlevel, by stress, strain, and displacement computer simulations and by experimental studies with a scratch tester. The studied tribological contact was a diamond ball sliding with increasing load on a thin titanium nitride (TiN) coating on a flat steel substrate. The ball was modelled as rigid, the coating was linearly elastic, and the steel substrate was elastic–plastic, taking into account strain hardening effects. It was shown that a thin TiN ceramic coating on a steel substrate has only a very slight effect on friction and on the plastic deformations (i.e., the groove formation) in the surface, but changes considerably the stress pattern at the surface. The stress simulations showed how a thicker hard coating on a soft substrate has a better load-carrying capacity that a thinner one. Higher tensile stresses at the coating/substrate interface increase the risk for interface cracks and delamination of the thicker coating. A stiffer hard coating on a soft substrate has a better load-carrying capacity than a more elastic one. The stiffer coating will accommodate higher tensile stresses with the same indentation depth compared to a more elastic one. The results show that much more attention should be given to optimizing the elastic properties of the coating than previously has been done. In many cases, it can be much more effective to improve the wear resistance of the coated surface by focusing on the elastic modulus of the coating than changing the coating thickness.

Hybrid Quantum Mechanical/Molecular Mechanics Study of the SN2 Reaction of CH3Cl+OH? in Water  

SciTech Connect

The SN2 mechanism for the reaction of CH3Cl + OH? in aqueous solution was investigated using combined quantum mechanical and molecular mechanics methodology. We analyzed structures of reactant, transition and product states along the reaction pathway. The free energy profile was calculated using the multi-layered representation with the DFT and CCSD(T) level of theory for the quantum-mechanical description of the reactive region. Our results show that the aqueous environment has a significant impact on the reaction process. We find that solvation energy contribution raises the reaction barrier by ~18.9 kcal/mol and the reaction free energy by ~24.5 kcal/mol. The presence of the solvent also induces perturbations in the electronic structure of the solute leading to an increase of 3.5 kcal/mol for the reaction barrier and a decrease of 5.6 kcal/mol for the reaction free energy respectively. Combining the results of two previous calculation results on CHCl3 + OH? and CH2Cl2 + OH? reactions in water, we demonstrate that increase in the chlorination of the methyl group (from CH3Cl to CHCl3) is accompanied by the decrease in the free energy reaction barrier, with the CH3Cl + OH? having the largest barrier among the three reactions.

DISCOVERY OF THE METHOXY RADICAL, CH{sub 3}O, TOWARD B1: DUST GRAIN AND GAS-PHASE CHEMISTRY IN COLD DARK CLOUDS  

SciTech Connect

We report on the discovery of the methoxy radical (CH{sub 3}O) toward the cold and dense core B1-b based on the observation, with the IRAM 30 m radio telescope, of several lines at 3 and 2 mm wavelengths. Besides this new molecular species we also report on the detection of many lines arising from methyl mercaptan (CH{sub 3}SH), formic acid (HCOOH), propynal (HCCCHO), acetaldehyde (CH{sub 3}CHO), dimethyl ether (CH{sub 3}OCH{sub 3}), methyl formate (CH{sub 3}OCOH), and the formyl radical (HCO). The column density of all these species is {approx_equal}10{sup 12} cm{sup -2}, corresponding to abundances of {approx_equal}10{sup -11}. The similarity in abundances for all these species strongly suggest that they are formed on the surface of dust grains and ejected to the gas phase through non-thermal desorption processes, most likely cosmic rays or secondary photons. Nevertheless, laboratory experiments indicate that the CH{sub 3}O isomer released to the gas phase is CH{sub 2}OH rather than the methoxy one. Possible gas-phase formation routes to CH{sub 3}O from OH and methanol are discussed.

Electrophilic, Ambiphilic, and Nucleophilic C-H bond Activation: Understanding the electronic continuum of C-H bond activation through transition-state and reaction pathway interaction energy decompositions  

SciTech Connect

The potential energy and interaction energy profiles for metal- and metal?ligand-mediated alkane C?H bond activation were explored using B3LYP density functional theory (DFT) and the absolutely localized molecular orbital energy decomposition analysis (ALMO-EDA). The set of complexes explored range from late transition metal group 10 (Pt and Pd) and group 11 (Au) metal centers to group 7?9 (Ir, Rh, Ru, and W) metal centers as well as a group 3 Sc complex. The coordination geometries, electron metal count (d{sup 8}, d{sup 6}, d{sup 4}, and d{sup 0}), and ligands (N-heterocycles, O-donor, phosphine, and Cp*) are also diverse. Quantitative analysis using ALMO-EDA of both directions of charge-transfer stabilization (occupied to unoccupied orbital stabilization) energies between the metal?ligand fragment and the coordinated C?H bond in the transition state for cleavage of the C?H bond allows classification of C?H activation reactions as electrophilic, ambiphilic, or nucleophilic on the basis of the net direction of charge-transfer energy stabilization. This bonding pattern transcends any specific mechanistic or bonding paradigm, such as oxidative addition, ?-bond metathesis, or substitution. Late transition metals such as Au(III), Pt(II), Pd(II), and Rh(III) metal centers with N-heterocycle, halide, or O-donor ligands show electrophilically dominated reaction profiles with forward charge-transfer from the C?H bond to the metal, leading to more stabilization than reverse charge transfer from the metal to the C?H bond. Transition states and reaction profiles for d{sup 6} Ru(II) and Ir(III) metals with Tp and acac ligands were found to have nearly equal forward and reverse charge-transfer energy stabilization. This ambiphilic region also includes the classically labeled electrophilic cationic species Cp*(PMe{sub 3})Ir(Me). Nucleophilic character, where the metal to C?H bond charge-transfer interaction is most stabilizing, was found in metathesis reactions with W(II) and Sc(III) metal center complexes in reactions as well as late transition metal Ir(I) and Rh(I) pincer complexes that undergo C?H bond insertion. Comparison of pincer ligands shows that the PCP ligand imparts more nucleophilic character to an Ir metal center than a deprotonated PNP ligand. The PCP and POCOP ligands do not show a substantial difference in the electronics of C?H activation. It was also found that Rh(I) is substantially more nucleophilic than Ir(I). Lastly, as a qualitative approximation, investigation of transition-state fragment orbital energies showed that relative frontier orbital energy gaps correctly reflect electrophilic, ambiphilic, or nucleophilic charge-transfer stabilization patterns.

Thermochemical Insight into the Reduction of CO to CH3OH with [Re(CO)]+ and [Mn(CO)]+ Complexes  

SciTech Connect

To gain insight into thermodynamic barriers for reduction of CO into CH3OH, free energies for reduction of [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CO)]+ into CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CH2OH) have been determined from experimental measurements. Using model complexes, the free energies for the transfer of H+, H–, and e– have been determined. A pKa of 10.6 was estimated for [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHOH)]+ by measuring the pKa for the analogous [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CMeOH)]+. The hydride donor ability (?G°H–) of CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CH2OH) was estimated to be 58.0 kcal mol–1, based on calorimetry measurements of the hydride transfer reaction between CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHO) and [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHOMe)]+ to generate the methylated analog, CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CH2OMe). Cyclic voltammograms recorded on CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CMeO), CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CH2OMe), and [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHOMe)]+ displayed either a quasireversible oxidation (neutral species) or reduction (cationic species). These potentials were used as estimates for the oxidation of CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHO) or CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CH2OH), or the reduction of [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHOH)]+. Combination of the thermodynamic data permits construction of three-dimensional free energy landscapes under varying conditions of pH and PH2. The free energy for H2 addition (?G°H2) to [CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CO)]+ (+15 kcal mol–1) was identified as the most significant thermodynamic impediment for the reduction of CO. DFT computations indicate that ?G°H2 varies by only 4.3 kcal mol–1 across a series of [CpXRe(L)(NO)(CO)]+, while the experimental ?G°H– values for the analogous series of CpRe(PPh3)(NO)(CHO) varies by 12.9 kcal mol–1. The small range of ?G°H2 values is attributed to a minimal change in the C–O bond polarization upon modification of the ancillary ligands, as determined from the computed atomic charges.

Direct ab initio molecular dynamics study on a SN2 reaction OH? + CH3Cl ? CH3OH + Cl?: Effect of non-zero impact parameter on the reaction dynamics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Direct ab initio molecular dynamics (MD) calculations have been applied to a SN2 reaction OH? + CH3Cl ? CH3OH + Cl?. The collision dynamics with non-zero impact parameters were treated in the present study, and the results are compared with the near collinear collision dynamics previously reported by us [H. Tachikawa, M. Igarashi, T. Ishibashi, J. Phys. Chem. A 106 (2002) 10977]. The collision energy was fixed to 25 kcal/mol. The product state distribution obtained for the non-zero impact parameter collision dynamics was slightly different from that of the collinear collision. The distribution of relative translational energy between products Cl? and CH3OH in the non-zero impact parameter collision dynamics was shifted to higher energy region from that of collinear collision. Also, it was found that the mean translational energy of the product has a maximum at non-zero impact parameter (b = 0.6–1.2 Å). The reaction mechanism is discussed on the basis of theoretical results.

Polyacetylene, (CH)/sub x/, as an emerging material for solar cell applications. Final technical report, March 19, 1979-March 18, 1980  

SciTech Connect

Despite great theoretical and technological interest in polyacetylene, (CH)/sub x/, the basic features of its band structure have not been unambiguously resolved. Since photoconductivity and optical absorption data have frequently been used to infer information on the band structure of semiconductors, such measurements were carried out on (CH)/sub x/. The main results of an extensive study of the photoconductivity (..delta.. sigma/sub ph/) and absorption coefficient (..cap alpha..) in (CH)/sub x/ are presented. The absence of photoconductivity in cis-(CH)/sub x/, despite the similarity in optical properties indicates that ..delta.. sigma/sub ph/ in trans-(CH)/sub x/ is induced by isomerization. It is found that isomerization generates states deep inside the gap that act as safe traps for minority carriers and thereby enhance the photoconductivity. Compensation of trans-(CH)/sub x/ with ammonia appears to decrease the number of safe traps, whereas acceptor doping increases their number. Thus, chemical doping can be used to control the photoconductive response. The energy of safe traps inside the gap is independent of the process used to generate them; indicative of an intrinsic localized defect level in trans-(CH)/sub x/. A coherent picture based on the soliton model can explain these results, including the safe trapping.

Current status and development of membranes for CO2/CH4 separation: A review  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a greenhouse gas found primarily as a main combustion product of fossil fuel as well as a component in natural gas, biogas and landfill gas. The interest to remove CO2 from those gas streams to obtain fuel with enhanced energy content and prevent corrosion problems in the gas transportation system, in addition to CO2 implications to the climate change, has driven the development of CO2 separation process technology. One type of technology which has experienced substantial growth, breakthroughs and advances during past decades is membrane-based technology. The attractive features offered by this technology include high energy efficiency, simplicity in design and construction of membrane modules and environmental compatibility. The objective of this review is to overview the different types of membranes available for use including their working principles, current status and development which form the primary determinants of separation performance and efficiency. The emphasis is toward CO2/CH4 separation, considering its substantial and direct relevance to the gas industry. To this end, discussion is made to cover polymeric gas permeation membranes; CO2-selective facilitated transport membranes, hollow fiber gas–liquid membrane contactors, inorganic membranes and mixed matrix membranes. The market for CO2 separation is currently dominated by polymeric membranes due to their relatively low manufacturing cost and processing ability into flat sheet and hollow fiber configurations as well as well-documented research studies. While there have been immensely successful membrane preparation and development techniques with consequential remarkable performance for each type of membrane. Each type of membrane brings associated advantages and drawbacks related to the characteristic transport mechanism for specific application conditions. Inorganic membranes, for example, are very suitable for high temperature CO2 separation in excess of 400 °C while all other membranes can be applied at lower temperatures. The recent emergence of mixed matrix membranes has allowed the innovative approach to combine the advantages offered by inorganic and polymeric materials.

Effect of the carbon addition to filling powder ball-milled with oils on the critical current density in ex situ processed MgB2 tapes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have studied the effect of planetary ball-milling of filling powder with mineral and silicon oils on the carbon substitution in MgB2 and the critical current density (Jc) of Fe-sheathed MgB2 tapes fabricated through an ex situ process in a powder-in-tube (PIT) technique. The mineral oil is much more effective for the carbon substitution and hence the Jc enhancement of tapes than the silicon oil. The silicon oil hardly refines MgB2 and causes a slight carbon substitution, compared with the mineral oil. Low-temperature drying of the as-milled powder to remove the mineral oil is more effective for the Jc enhancement due to an enhanced carbon substitution. This is probably because the low-temperature drying leaves more organic material from decomposed oil which acts as a carbon source. However, the carbon substitution amount is just x = 0.04–0.05 in MgB2?xCx. Although the carbon addition to filling powder is effective in increasing the carbon substitution, the Jc properties of tapes degrade due to induced weak coupling.

Final LDRD report : development of sample preparation methods for ChIPMA-based imaging mass spectrometry of tissue samples.  

SciTech Connect

The objective of this short-term LDRD project was to acquire the tools needed to use our chemical imaging precision mass analyzer (ChIPMA) instrument to analyze tissue samples. This effort was an outgrowth of discussions with oncologists on the need to find the cellular origin of signals in mass spectra of serum samples, which provide biomarkers for ovarian cancer. The ultimate goal would be to collect chemical images of biopsy samples allowing the chemical images of diseased and nondiseased sections of a sample to be compared. The equipment needed to prepare tissue samples have been acquired and built. This equipment includes an cyro-ultramicrotome for preparing thin sections of samples and a coating unit. The coating unit uses an electrospray system to deposit small droplets of a UV-photo absorbing compound on the surface of the tissue samples. Both units are operational. The tissue sample must be coated with the organic compound to enable matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) and matrix enhanced secondary ion mass spectrometry (ME-SIMS) measurements with the ChIPMA instrument Initial plans to test the sample preparation using human tissue samples required development of administrative procedures beyond the scope of this LDRD. Hence, it was decided to make two types of measurements: (1) Testing the spatial resolution of ME-SIMS by preparing a substrate coated with a mixture of an organic matrix and a bio standard and etching a defined pattern in the coating using a liquid metal ion beam, and (2) preparing and imaging C. elegans worms. Difficulties arose in sectioning the C. elegans for analysis and funds and time to overcome these difficulties were not available in this project. The facilities are now available for preparing biological samples for analysis with the ChIPMA instrument. Some further investment of time and resources in sample preparation should make this a useful tool for chemical imaging applications.

Optical and electrical characterization of an atmospheric pressure microplasma jet for Ar/CH{sub 4} and Ar/C{sub 2}H{sub 2} mixtures  

SciTech Connect

A rf microplasma jet working at atmospheric pressure has been characterized for Ar, He, and Ar/CH{sub 4} and Ar/C{sub 2}H{sub 2} mixtures. The microdischarge has a coaxial configuration, with a gap between the inner and outer electrodes of 250 {mu}m. The main flow runs through the gap of the coaxial structure, while the reactive gases are inserted through a capillary as inner electrode. The discharge is excited using a rf of 13.56 MHz, and rms voltages around 200-250 V and rms currents of 0.4-0.6 A are obtained. Electron densities around 8x10{sup 20} m{sup -3} and gas temperatures lower than 400 K have been measured using optical emission spectroscopy for main flows of 3 slm and inner capillary flows of 160 SCCM. By adjusting the flows, the flow pattern prevents the mixing of the reactive species with the ambient air in the discharge region, so that no traces of air are found even when the microplasma is operated in an open atmosphere. This is shown in Ar/CH{sub 4} and Ar/C{sub 2}H{sub 2} plasmas, where no CO and CN species are present and the optical emission spectroscopy spectra are mainly dominated by CH and C{sub 2} bands. The ratio of these two species follows different trends with the amount of precursor for Ar/CH{sub 4} and Ar/C{sub 2}H{sub 2} mixtures, showing the presence of distinct chemistries in each of them. In Ar/C{sub 2}H{sub 2} plasmas, CH{sub x} species are produced mainly by electron impact dissociation of C{sub 2}H{sub 2} molecules, and the CH{sub x}/C{sub 2}H{sub x} ratio is independent of the precursor amount. In Ar/CH{sub 4} mixtures, C{sub 2}H{sub x} species are formed mainly by recombination of CH{sub x} species through three-body reactions, so that the CH{sub x}/C{sub 2}H{sub x} ratio depends on the amount of CH{sub 4} present in the mixture. All these properties make our microplasma design of great interest for applications such as thin film growth or surface treatment.

Photon production from collisions of 100–350-keV positive ions with CO, CF4, and CH4  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Various photon emissions from collisions of H+, H2+, and He+ in the 100–350-keV energy range with targets of CO, CF4, and CH4 were studied. The wavelength range of the investigation ran from 2000 to 7000 Å. Photon-emission cross sections were measured for all significant features. The cross-section data were compared to the Bethe-Born theory through the use of Fano plots. The results show that the theory could be applicable in the case of the CO target, but is probably not applicable to the tetrahedral molecular targets as the emissions are from dissociated atoms.

Selective enhancement of the 251-. mu. m line in an optically pumped CH/sub 3/OH laser  

SciTech Connect

To obtain a high output power on the 251-..mu..m line of a CH/sub 3/OH laser, four types of far-infrared output mirror are examined. It is found that the capacitive aluminium-mesh mirror of the Danielewicz type, which is fabricated by conventional vacuum deposition techniques in the present work, selectively extracts an output power of 18 mW from a 25-W pump. Also, exact assignment of the line is achieved by tuning the far-infrared cavity using the mirror.

Atmospheric chemistry of HFC-143a: Spectrokinetic investigation of the CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O[sub 2][center dot] radical, its reactions with NO and NO[sub 2], and the fate of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O  

SciTech Connect

The ultraviolet absorption spectrum of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O[sub 2] radicals, the kinetics of their self-reaction, and their reactions with NO and NO[sub 2] have been studied in the gas phase at 296 K using a pulse radiolysis technique. A long path-length Fourier transform infrared technique was used to study the fate of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O radicals. Absorption cross sections were quantified over the wavelength range 220-300 nm. At 250 nm, [sigma](CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O[sub 2]) = (2.73 [+-] 0.31) [times] 10[sup [minus]18] molecule[sup [minus]1]. By monitoring the rate of NO[sub 2] formation, k[sub 4] = (1.2 [+-] 0.3) [times] 10[sup [minus]11] cm[sup 3] molecule[sup [minus]1] s[sup [minus]1] was found for the reaction of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O[sub 2] radical with NO. The reaction of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O[sub 2] radicals with NO gives CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O radicals. In the atmosphere, >99.33% of the CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O radicals react with O[sub 2] to give CF[sub 3]CHO. By monitoring the rate of NO[sub 2] decay, k[sub 5] = (5.8 [+-] 1.1) [times] 10[sup [minus]12] cm[sup 3] molecule[sup [minus]1] s[sup [minus]1] was found for the reaction of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 2]O[sub 2] radical with NO[sub 2]. The results are discussed with respect to the atmospheric chemistry of CF[sub 3]CH[sub 3] (HFC-143a). 34 refs., 12 figs., 1 tab.

Temperature dependence of the rate constant for the HO/sub 2/ + CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ gas-phase reaction  

SciTech Connect

The temperature dependence of the reaction between hydroperoxy and methylperoxy radicals was measured in a flash photolysis ultraviolet absorption apparatus over the temperature range 228-380 K: HO/sub 2/ + CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ ..-->.. CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/H + O/sub 2/ (1). The data, represented by the Arrhenius expression k/sub 1/ = (3.0 +/- 1.2) x 10/sup -13/ exp((720 +/- 100)/T) cm/sup 3/ molecule/sup -1/ s/sup -1/, are compared to earlier results and discussed in terms of the reaction mechanism. Due to overlapping absorptions of the two radicals and deviations of the complex reaction system from both pseudo-first-order and pseudo-second-order behavior, the rate constants were determined from a detailed modeling of the radical decay curves. A sensitivity analysis of the rate constant determination procedure to the assumed radical absorption cross sections and correlated changes in the rate constants for the HO/sub 2/ and CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ self-reactions was performed, and the results are reported. The present results were also used to assess the effects of secondary chemistry in the authors measurements of the temperature dependence of the rate constant of the CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ + CH/sub 3/O/sub 2/ reaction, and the revised Arrhenius parameters are presented.

Adsorption Kinetics of CO2, CH4, and their Equimolar Mixture on Coal from the Black Warrior Basin, West-Central Alabama  

SciTech Connect

Laboratory experiments were conducted to investigate the adsorption kinetic behavior of pure and mixed gases (CO2, CH4, approximately equimolar CO2 + CH4 mixtures, and He) on a coal sample obtained from the Black Warrior Basin at the Littleton Mine (Twin Pine Coal Company), Jefferson County, west-central Alabama. The sample was from the Mary Lee coal zone of the Pottsville Formation (Lower Pennsylvanian). Experiments with three size fractions (45-150 m, 1-2 mm, and 5-10 mm) of crushed coal were performed at 40 C and 35 C over a pressure range of 1.4 6.9 MPa to simulate coalbed methane reservoir conditions in the Black Warrior Basin and provide data relevant for enhanced coalbed methane recovery operations. The following key observations were made: (1) CO2 adsorption on both dry and water-saturated coal is much more rapid than CH4 adsorption; (2) water saturation decreases the rates of CO2 and CH4 adsorption on coal surfaces, but it appears to have minimal effects on the final magnitude of CO2 or CH4 adsorption if the coal is not previously exposed to CO2; (3) retention of adsorbed CO2 on coal surfaces is significant even with extreme pressure cycling; and (4) adsorption is significantly faster for the 45-150 m size fraction compared to the two coarser fractions.

FT-IR product studies of the Cl-initiated oxidation of CH{sub 3}Cl in the presence of NO  

SciTech Connect

The deleterious effect of chlorine chemistry on stratospheric ozone levels is now well documented. The Cl-atom initiated oxidation of CH{sub 3}Cl has been studied at 296 K using two different FTIR/environmental chamber systems. In the presence of NO, the carbon-bearing products observed are HCOCl, HCHO, and CO, with yields in 700 Torr of air of (56 {+-} 10), (32 {+-} 6), and (12 {+-} 5)%, respectively. This product distribution is different from previous studies conducted in the absence of NO, in which a nearly 100% yield of HCOCl was obtained. The different product distribution observed in the presence of NO is attributed to the formation and subsequent decomposition of chemically activated CH{sub 2}ClO radicals, formed in the exothermic reaction of CH{sub 2}ClO{sub 2} with NO.

Communication: Imaging the effects of the antisymmetric-stretching excitation in the O({sup 3}P) + CH{sub 4}(v{sub 3} = 1) reaction  

SciTech Connect

Effects of one-quantum excitation of the antisymmetric-stretching mode of CH{sub 4}(v{sub 3} = 1) on the O({sup 3}P) + CH{sub 4} reaction were studied in a crossed-beam, ion-imaging experiment. In the post-threshold region, we found that (1) the product state distributions are dominated by the CH{sub 3}(0{sub 0}) + OH(v{sup ?} = 1) pair, (2) the product angular distributions extend toward sideways from the backward dominance of the ground-state reaction, and (3) vibrational excitation exerts a positive effect on reactivity, but translational energy is more efficient in promoting the rate of this central-barrier reaction. All major findings agree reasonably well with recent theoretical results. Some remaining questions are pointed out.
