Explanatory Notes Explanatory Notes The EIA-782 Surveys Background The EIA-782 surveys were implemented in 1983 to fulfill the data requirements necessary to meet En- ergy Information Administration (EIA) legislative mandates and user community data needs. The re- quirements include petroleum product price, market distribution, demand (or sales), and product supply data, which are needed for a complete evaluation of petroleum market performance. The EIA-782 series includes the Form EIA-782A, "Refiners'/Gas Plant Operators' Monthly Petroleum Product Sales Re- port"; Form EIA-782B, "Resellers'/Retailers' Monthly Petroleum Product Sales Report"; and Form EIA- 782C, "Monthly Report of Prime Supplier Sales of Petroleum Products Sold for Local Consumption."

Company Level Imports Explanatory Notes Company Level Imports Explanatory Notes Notice: Ongoing analysis of imports data to the Energy Information Administration reveals that some imports are not correctly reported on Form EIA-814 "Monthly Imports Report". Contact with the companies provides sufficient information for EIA to include these imports in the data even though they have not provided complete reports on Form EIA-814. Estimates are included in aggregate data, but the estimates are not included in the file of Company-Level Imports. Therefore, summation of volumes for PAD Districts 1-5 from the Company-Level Imports will not equal aggregate import totals.

Delivered to Consumers (Heat Content) Heat content of residential, commercial, industrial, vehicle fuel and electric power deliveries to consumers. Electric Power (Heat Content) Heat content of natural gas used as fuel in the electric power sector. Heat Content The amount of heat energy available to be released by the transformation or use of a specified physical unit of an energy form (e.g., a ton of coal, a barrel of oil, a kilowatthour of electricity, a cubic foot of natural gas, or a pound of steam). The amount of heat energy is commonly expressed in British thermal units (Btu). Note: Heat content of combustible energy forms can be expressed in terms of either gross heat content (higher or upper heating value) or net heat content (lower heating value), depending upon whether or not the available heat energy includes or excludes the energy used to vaporize water (contained in the original energy form or created during the combustion process). The Energy Information Administration typically uses gross heat content values.

The resultant product can be thought of as a vertical sonic cross-section of the subsurface beneath the survey line. It is constructed by summing many compressional (pressure) wave reflections from the various sound source and sound detector locations at the halfway sound path points beneath each location (common depth point stacking). In three-dimensional (3D) reflection seismic surveying the sound detectors (numbering up to a thousand or more) are spread out over an area and the sound source is moved from location to location through the area. The resultant product can be thought of as a cube of common depth point stacked reflections. Advantages over 2D include the additional dimension, the fact that many more reflections are available for stacking at each point, which provides greatly improved resolution of subsurface features, and elimination of the "ghost" or "side swipe" reflections from nearby offline features that 2D surveys are prone to (except, of course, along the outer faces of the cube).

ERIP application instructions  

SciTech Connect

This report provides background information and instructions to assist applicants in writing Energy-Related Inventions Program (ERIP) applications. Initial feedback fro usage for the new instructions shows that the best instructions would not be read and followed by all applicants. Applications from more than thirty applicants who have received the new instructions indicated that few had read the instructions. Based on this feedback, the instructions have been further revised to include a title page and table of contents. A warning was also added to advise applicants of the potential penalty of delayed review if these instructions are not followed. This revision was intended to address the possibility that some applicants did not see or bother to follow the instructions which followed the background information about ERIP. Included are two examples of ERIP applications which have been prepared for handout at workshops or mailing to applicants. Writing of example applications was time consuming and more difficult than expected for several reasons: (1) Full disclosures can be lengthy, very detailed, and technical. This contrasts with the desire to prepare examples which are comparatively short and easy for the non-technical person to read. (2) Disclosures contain confidential information which should not be published. (3) It is difficult to imagine that applicants will study examples when they do not bother to read the basic instructions.

POTSDAM NOTE POTSDAM NOTE Potsdam, Germany (July 1945) Resources > Photo Gallery Note written by President Harry S. Truman, in which he brags that Stalin did not understand when Truman hinted at Potsdam of a powerful new American weapon. (Scroll down to see the note.) Due to the success of Soviet espionage, however, Truman was incorrect-in fact, Stalin knew about the atomic bomb project three years before Truman did. Truman wrote this note on the back of a photograph of the Potsdam Conference taken on July 19, 1945. In the photograph Stalin talks with Truman and Secretary of State James Byrnes (both have their backs to the camera). The photograph of Potsdam is courtesy the Office of the Chief Signal Officer, War Department, U.S. Army; this image, and the photograph of Truman's writing on the back of it, are courtesy the National Archives.

Low-Emittance Low-Emittance APS Lattice with Alternating Horizontal Beta Functions at Insertion Devices - formerly OAG-TN-2004-057 - Michael Borland-12/8/2004 - Accelerator Systems Division, Advanced Photon Source 1 Introduction Previously [1, 2] we looked at the possibility of reducing the horizontal beta function in a straight section in order to optimize the beam properties for certain uses. This is difficult to do as an insertion because of the many constraints on the APS lattice. In particular, the emittance inevitably increases, and it can only be done for one or two sectors. We noted in [1] that an ESRF-style lattice with alternating high- and low-β x sectors might provide reasonably good emittance for the APS, while providing two types of beta function. In this note, we present such a lattice that not only provides alternating β x , but also improved emittance. 2 Linear Optics For the

The weekly stocks generally are the volumes of working gas as of the report date. Changes in reported stock levels reflect all events affecting working gas in storage, including injections, withdrawals, and reclassifications between base and working gas. Totals may not match sum of components because of independent rounding. The complete documentation of EIA's estimation methodology is available in the report, Methodology for EIA Weekly Underground Natural Gas Storage Estimates.

TRUPACT-II Operating and Maintenance Instructions  

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this document is to provide the technical requirements for preparation for use, operation, inspection, and maintenance of a Transuranic Package Transporter Model II (TRUPACT-II) Shipping Package and directly related components. This document complies with the minimum requirements as specified in the TRUPACT-II Safety Analysis Report for Packaging (SARP) and Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Certificate of Compliance (C of C) 9218. In the event there is a conflict between this document and the TRUPACT-II SARP, the TRUPACT-II SARP shall govern. TRUPACT-II C of C number 9218 states, ''... each package must be prepared for shipment and operated in accordance with the procedures described in Chapter 7.0, Operating Procedures, of the application.'' It further states, ''... each package must be tested and maintained in accordance with the procedures described in Chapter 8.0, Acceptance Tests and Maintenance Program of the application.'' Chapter 9 of the TRUPACT-II SARP charges the Westinghouse Electric Corporation Waste Isolation Division (WID) with assuring that the TRUPACT-II is used in accordance with the requirements of the C of C. To meet this requirement and verify consistency of operations when loading and unloading the TRUPACT-II on the trailer, placing a payload in the packaging, unloading the payload from the packaging, or performing maintenance, the U.S. Department of Energy Carlsbad Area Office (U.S. DOE/CAO) finds it necessary to implement the changes that follow. This TRUPACT-II maintenance document represents a change to previous philosophy regarding site specific procedures for the use of the TRUPACT-II. This document details the instructions to be followed to consistently operate and maintain the TRUPACT-II. The intent of these instructions is to ensure that all users of the TRUPACT-II follow the same or equivalent instructions. Users may achieve this intent by any of the following methods: (1) Utilizing these instructions as is, or (2) Attaching a site-specific cover page/letter to this document stating that these are the instructions to be used at their location, or (3) Sites may prepare their own document using the steps in this document word-for-word, in-sequence, including Notes and Cautions. Site specific information may be included as deemed necessary. Submit the document to WID National TRU Programs for approval. Any revision made subsequent to WID TRU Program's approval shall be reviewed and approved by WID TRU Programs. A copy of the approval letter from WID National TRU Programs should be available for audit purposes. Users shall develop site-specific procedures addressing leak testing, preoperational activities, quality assurance, hoisting and rigging, and radiation health physics to be used in conjunction with the instructions contained in this document. Users desiring to recommend changes to this document may submit their recommendations to the WID National TRU Programs for evaluation. If approved, the change(s) will be incorporated into this document for use by all TRUPACT-II users. User sites will be audited to this document to ensure compliance within one year from the effective date of this revision. This document discusses operating instructions, required inspections and maintenance for the following: TRUPACT-II packaging, and Miscellaneous packaging, special tools, and equipment. Packaging and payload handling equipment and transport trailers have been specifically designed for use with the TRUPACT-II Packaging. This document discusses the required instructions for use of the following equipment in conjunction with the TRUPACT-II Packaging: TRUPACT-II Mobile Loading Unit (MLU), Adjustable Center-of-Gravity Lift Fixture (ACGLF), and TRUPACT-II Transport Trailer. Attachment E contains the various TRUPACT-II packaging interface control drawings, leak-test and vent-port tool drawings, ACGLF drawings, and tie-down drawings that identify the various system components.

Instructional Transaction Theory - An Introduction  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Instructional transactions are instructional algorithms, patterns of learner interactions, usually far more complex than a single display and a single response, which have been designed to enable the learner to acquire a certain kind of knowledge or skill. Different kinds of knowledge and skill would require different kinds of transactions. The necessary set of these instructional transactions are designed and programmed once, like other computer applications such as spread sheets. They can then be used with different content topics as long as these topics are of a similar kind of knowledge or skill. A transaction shell is the structure of a transaction identifying the interactions, parameters, and knowledge representation needed for a given class of transactions. A transaction shell is a piece of computer code that, when delivered to a student via an appropriate delivery system, causes a transaction to occur. A transaction shell consists of two subsystems: an authoring environment and a delivery environment. The users of the authoring environment are subject matter experts and instructors; the users of the delivery environment are students. The authoring environment has a knowledge acquisition system and a transaction configuration system. The knowledge acquisition system queries a subject matter expert concerning the knowledge and skill required by the enterprise. This information is organized and stored in a knowledge base. The transaction configuration system enables the instructor, or designer, to provide values for a wide range of instructional parameters. These parameters control the nature of the interactions with the learner. Instructional parameters enable a given transaction shell to be customized for a particular student population, learning environment, ...

A protocol for instruction stream processing  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The behaviour produced by an instruction sequence under execution is a behaviour to be controlled by some execution environment: each step performed actuates the processing of an instruction by the execution environment and a reply returned at completion of the processing determines how the behaviour proceeds. In this paper, we are concerned with the case where the processing takes place remotely. We describe a protocol to deal with the case where the behaviour produced by an instruction sequence under execution leads to the generation of a stream of instructions to be processed and a remote execution unit handles the processing of that stream of instructions.

Ross Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Stanford, CA Abstract: The primary effort for damping ring wiggler studies has been to develop a credible radiation hard electromagnet wiggler conceptual design that meets NLC main electron and positron damping ring physics requirements [1]. Based upon an early assessment of requirements, a hybrid magnet similar to existing designs satisfies basic requirements. However, radiation damage is potentially a serious problem for the Nd-Fe-B permanent magnet material, and cost remains an issue for samarium cobalt magnets.

Synthesis of application specific instruction sets  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

An instruction set serves as the interface between hardware and software in a computer system. In an application specific environment, the system per-formance can be improved by designing an instruction set that matches the characteristics of hardware and the application. We present a systematic approach to generate application-specific instruction sets so that software applications can be efficiently mapped to a given pipelined microarchitec-ture. The approach synthesizes instruction sets from application bench-marks, given a machine model, an objective function, and a set of design constraints. In addition, assembly code is generated to show how the benchmarks can be compiled with the synthesized instruction set. The problem of designing instruction sets is formulated as a modified schedul-ing problem. A binary tuple is proposed to model the semantics of instruc-tions and integrate the instruction formation process into the scheduling process. A simulated annealing scheme is used to solve for the schedules. Experiments have shown that the approach is capable of synthesizing pow-erful instructions for modern pipelined micro-processors, and running with reasonable time and a modest amount of memory for large applications.

A total wiggler length of a little over 46 m is needed to achieve the damping time required for extracted, normalized, vertical emittance below 0.02 mm mrad. The dynamic aperture (using a linear model for the wiggler) is in excess of 15 times the injected beam size. The principal lattice parameters and characteristics are presented in this note; we also outline results of studies of alignment and field quality tolerances.

Stupakov Stanford Linear Accelerator Center Stanford, California Abstract: During acceleration in the linac structure, the beam not only increases its longitudinal momentum, but also experiences a transverse kick from the accelerating mode which is linear in accelerating gradient. This effect is neglected in such computer codes as LIAR and TRANSPORT. We derived the Hamiltonian equations that describe the effect of RF deflection into the acceleration process and included it into the computational engine of LIAR. By comparing orbits for the NLC main linac, we found that the difference between the two algorithms is about 10\%. The effect will be more pronounced at smaller

Lecture notes for criticality safety  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

These lecture notes for criticality safety are prepared for the training of Department of Energy supervisory, project management, and administrative staff. Technical training and basic mathematics are assumed. The notes are designed for a two-day course, taught by two lecturers. Video tapes may be used at the options of the instructors. The notes provide all the materials that are necessary but outside reading will assist in the fullest understanding. The course begins with a nuclear physics overview. The reader is led from the macroscopic world into the microscopic world of atoms and the elementary particles that constitute atoms. The particles, their masses and sizes and properties associated with radioactive decay and fission are introduced along with Einstein's mass-energy equivalence. Radioactive decay, nuclear reactions, radiation penetration, shielding and health-effects are discussed to understand protection in case of a criticality accident. Fission, the fission products, particles and energy released are presented to appreciate the dangers of criticality. Nuclear cross sections are introduced to understand the effectiveness of slow neutrons to produce fission. Chain reactors are presented as an economy; effective use of the neutrons from fission leads to more fission resulting in a power reactor or a criticality excursion. The six-factor formula is presented for managing the neutron budget. This leads to concepts of material and geometric buckling which are used in simple calculations to assure safety from criticality. Experimental measurements and computer code calculations of criticality are discussed. To emphasize the reality, historical criticality accidents are presented in a table with major ones discussed to provide lessons-learned. Finally, standards, NRC guides and regulations, and DOE orders relating to criticality protection are presented.

BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAM CODE NOTES  

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

IECC IECC BUILDING TECHNOLOGIES PROGRAM CODE NOTES 1 The intent of the pipe insulation requirements is to reduce temperature changes while fluids are being transported through piping associated with heating, cooling or service hot water (SHW) systems, thereby saving energy and reducing operating costs. Uninsulated piping systems that transport fluids can create water temperature irregularities, which ultimately requires additional heating or cooling and associated energy costs to bring the water to operating temperature. Any piping that carries heated or cooled water, including piping systems with external heating (e.g., heat trace or impedance heating), should be thermally insulated to reduce heat loss or gain, allowing the fluid to be delivered at the intended temperature.

Comments on "The Case for the Reduced Instruction Set Computer, " by Patterson and Ditzel  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Patterson and Ditzel's paper [3] argues that a Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC) can be as cost-effective as a Complex Instruction Set Computer (CISC). In this note we suggest that several of their points are misleading, and present some evidence on the other side of the argument. We rely heavily, as did they, on the VAX-iI architecture [5] for examples. The superiority of a RISC over a corresponding CISC will be very difficult to prove. Casual evaluation of cost and performance will not be sufficient unless the differences between a CISC and a RISC are extreme, which is unlikely. Paper designs will not be enough. A careful comparison between a RISC and a CISC would seem to us to require a complete design of the hardware and microcode for both, construction or simulation of the processors, the writing of compilers and possibly an operating system, and performance measurement across a variety of applications.

Instruction Packing for a 32-bit Stack-Based Processor  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Abstract- This work proposed a design and development of a 32-bit stack-based processor for embedded systems. A reference processor has a 32-bit stack-based instruction set. This work proposed a technique of instruction packing which packs several instructions into one 32-bit instruction unit. Therefore, the instruction size is reduced. The result of the experiment shows that the proposed technique achieves around 30 % reduction in code size.

Understanding Superintendents' Self-Efficacy Influences on Instructional Leadership and Student Achievement  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This dissertation explores public school superintendent self-efficacy influences on instructional and student achievement within three Texas public school districts. The purpose of this research study is to investigate superintendent self-efficacy and its perceived influence on instructional leadership in districts with persistent student achievement inequities for economically disadvantaged and students of color. This study specifically focused on three White male public school superintendents with varying numbers of student populations that have large percentages of economically disadvantaged students and students of color. Two research questions guided the inquiry process: 1. How do superintendents in school districts in which children of color and children from low-income homes persistently under-perform perceive their effectiveness in the area of instructional leadership? 2.What are superintendents perceptions about how their instructional leadership beliefs are influenced by the context of federal and state accountability in which they work? This study employed a qualitative method of investigation utilizing a case-study approach to examine the perceptions, beliefs, and views of participating superintendents. Two in-depth interviews with each school superintendent served as primary data collection sources, while field notes, personal observations, email, and phone conversations served as secondary and clarifying sources. Data were interpreted using a critical interpretivist lens. This inquiry contributes to the body of superintendent practice and limited research scholarship by assisting in the understanding of perceived superintendent self-efficacy influences on instructional leadership and student achievement. These understandings have additional implications for the intersection of power, privilege, and emancipatory critical constructs for superintendents with populations of economically disadvantaged students and students of color. Findings from this study serve to highlight needed calls to action and reforms in superintendent preparatory programs, research scholarship, professional organizations, and regional educational service centers.

Scalability in instructional method specification: An experiment-directed approach  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

: An intelligent tutoring system (ITS) is, in principle, well suited for instructional experimentation as the automated environment allows for controlled variation of variables. These variables, aspects of the instructional and domain models, can be varied by replacing parts representing these aspects by other parts. However, if ITSs are to be used as vehicles for instructional experimentation the architecture, the knowledge representation, and the authoring environment should fulfil additional requirements. This paper discusses the requirements for experimentation-directed ITSs, the shell for ITS development and the scalable instructional method specification (SIMS) paradigm.

On the behaviours produced by instruction sequences under execution  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The behaviour produced by an instruction sequence under execution is a behaviour to be controlled by some execution environment: each step performed actuates the processing of an instruction by the execution environment and a reply returned at completion of the processing determines how the behaviour proceeds. The increasingly occurring case where the processing takes place remotely involves the generation of a stream of instructions to be processed and a remote execution unit that handles the processing of this stream of instructions. We use process algebra to describe the behaviours produced by instruction sequences under execution and to describe two protocols implementing these behaviours in the case of remote processing. We also show that all finite-state behaviours considered in process algebra can be produced by instruction sequences under execution.

Emittance tuning simulations for current designs of damping rings for TESLA and NLC have given encouraging results, but depend on invasive measurements of dispersion. The frequency with which such measurements must be made is therefore an operational issue, and depends on the time stability of the alignment.

Using manipulatives and visual cues with explicit vocabulary enhancement for mathematics instruction with grade three and four low achievers in bilingual classrooms  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A study was conducted to assess the effects of two instructional strategies: manipulative-based instruction and visual cues in mathematics (both enhanced by explicit vocabulary enrichment) in a small group setting with young Hispanic students who are English language learners. The duration of the study was five weeks. Sixty-four third and fourth grade students were selected for participation based on their performance with problem solving items from the four release tests for 1999-2002 mathematics Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS) for third and fourth grades. A pre-assessment composed of 10 of the 13 TAAS objectives were administered. The four pre-selected objectives on which the students scored the lowest were identified for further instruction and assessment. The student population was limited to those of the original sixty-four achieving manipulative based instruction, 2) visual (drawings) cue instruction, and 3) no additional mathematical instruction. The students in the three groups were of equivalent mathematical ability, and every effort was made to ensure the groups had the same number of students. Pre-posttest improvement was measured with a mixed ANOVA (repeated measures, with a grouping factor), with instructional group as the grouping factor, and the pre/post assessment of math as the repeated measure. ANOVA results included non-significant progress for either grade level. Neither of the experimental groups in grades three or four showed significant improvement between the pre and post assessment. Six sequential probes also were administered throughout the five-week study. A trend analysis for the three separate groups was conducted on the probe results to evaluate growth over time; trend analyses were conducted for each individual student and then averaged for each group. For the two experimental groups, the overall improvement at third and fourth grades was minimal. Overall, gradual improvement was noted, but the progress did not consistently occur from one week to another, and the improvement trend was not linear.

Co-Synthesis of Instruction Sets and Microarchitectures  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The design of an instruction set processor includes several related design tasks: instruction set design, microarchitecture design, and code generation. Although there have been automatic approaches for each individual task, the investigation of the interaction between these tasks still primarily relies on designers' experience and ingenuity. It is thus the goal of this research to develop formal models and algorithms to investigate such interaction systematically. This dissertation presents a two-phase co-synthesis approach to the problem. In the architectural level, given a set of application benchmarks and a pipeline structure, the ASIA (Automatic Synthesis of Instruction set Architecture) design automation system generates an instruction set and allocates hardware resources which best fit the applications, and, at the same time, maps the applications to assembly code with the synthesized instruction set. This approach formulates the codesign problem as a modified scheduling/allocat...

Note on tachyon moduli and closed strings  

SciTech Connect

The collective behavior of the SL(2,R) covariant brane states of noncritical c=1 string theory, found in a previous work, is studied in the Fermi liquid approximation. It is found that such states mimic the coset WZW model, whereas only by further restrictions one recovers the double-scaling limit which was purported to be equivalent to closed string models. Another limit is proposed, inspired by the tachyon condensation ideas, where the spectrum is the same of two-dimensional string theory. We close by noting some strange connections between vacuum states of the theory in their different interpretations.

Notes on parafermionic QFT's with boundary interaction  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The main result of these notes is an analytical expression for the partition function of the circular brane model for arbitrary values of the topological angle. The model has important applications in condensed matter physics. It is related to the dissipative rotator (Ambegaokar-Eckern-Schon) model and describes a ``weakly blocked'' quantum dot with an infinite number of tunneling channels under a finite gate voltage bias. A numerical check of the analytical solution by means of Monte Carlo simulations has been performed recently. To derive the main result we study the so-called boundary parafermionic sine-Gordon model. The latter is of certain interest to condensed matter applications, namely as a toy model for a point junction in the multichannel quantum wire.

Custom-Instruction Synthesis for Extensible-Processor Platforms  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Efficiency and flexibility are critical, but often conflicting, design goals in embedded system design. The recent emergence of extensible processors promises a favorable tradeoff between efficiency and flexibility, while keeping design turnaround times short. Current extensible processor design flows automate several tedious tasks, but typically require designers to manually select the parts of the program that are to be implemented as custom instructions. In this work, we describe an automatic methodology to select custom instructions to augment an extensible processor, in order to maximize its efficiency for a given application program. We demonstrate that the number of custom instruction candidates grows rapidly with program size, leading to a large design space, and that the quality (speedup) of custom instructions varies significantly across this space, motivating the need for the proposed flow. Our methodology features cost functions to guide the custom instruction selection process, as well as static and dynamic pruning techniques to eliminate inferior parts of the design space from consideration. Furthermore, we employ a two-stage process, wherein a limited number of promising instruction candidates are first short-listed using efficient selection criteria, and then evaluated in more detail through cycle-accurate instruction set simulation and synthesis of the corresponding hardware, to identify the custom instruction combinations that result in the highest program speedup or maximize speedup under a given area constraint. We have evaluated the proposed techniques using a state-of-the-art extensible processor platform, in the context of a commercial design flow. Experiments with several benchmark programs indicate that custom processors synthesized using automa...

The causes of the slow start to harvest are slower than normal maturation of the grain (Fig 1), cool temperatures (slower grain drying), and muddy field conditions due to the continuing pattern of frequent rains. The slow pace of corn harvest coupled with the poor stalk quality in some fields (Nielsen, 2006) reminds us how spoiled we were with generally good harvest conditions of the past two seasons. But, that is not the point of this article. Fig. 1. Percent of Indianas corn crop that is rated mature and safe from frost, as of 24 Sep 2006. Data source: USDA-NASS.

NALDA (Naval Aviation Logistics Data Analysis) CAI (computer aided instruction)  

SciTech Connect

Data Systems Engineering Organization (DSEO) personnel developed a prototype computer aided instruction CAI system for the Naval Aviation Logistics Data Analysis (NALDA) system. The objective of this project was to provide a CAI prototype that could be used as an enhancement to existing NALDA training. The CAI prototype project was performed in phases. The task undertaken in Phase I was to analyze the problem and the alternative solutions and to develop a set of recommendations on how best to proceed. The findings from Phase I are documented in Recommended CAI Approach for the NALDA System (Duncan et al., 1987). In Phase II, a structured design and specifications were developed, and a prototype CAI system was created. A report, NALDA CAI Prototype: Phase II Final Report, was written to record the findings and results of Phase II. NALDA CAI: Recommendations for an Advanced Instructional Model, is comprised of related papers encompassing research on computer aided instruction CAI, newly developing training technologies, instructional systems development, and an Advanced Instructional Model. These topics were selected because of their relevancy to the CAI needs of NALDA. These papers provide general background information on various aspects of CAI and give a broad overview of new technologies and their impact on the future design and development of training programs. The paper within have been index separately elsewhere.

Inside: Instruction selection/identification & design exploration for extensible processors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper presents the INSIDE system that rapidly searches the design space for extensible processors, given area and performance constraints of an embedded application, while minimizing the design turn-around-time. Our system consists of a) a methodology to determine which code segments are most suited for implementation as a set of extensible instructions, b) a heuristic algorithm to select pre-configured extensible processors as well as extensible instructions (library), and c) an estimation tool which rapidly estimates the performance of an application on a generated extensible processor. By selecting the right combination of a processor core plus extensible instructions, we achieve a performance increase on average of 2.03x (up to 7x) compared to the base processor core at a minimum hardware overhead of 25 % on average. 1.

Integrating Numerical Computation into the Modeling Instruction Curriculum  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We describe a way to introduce physics high school students with no background in programming to computational problem-solving experiences. Our approach builds on the great strides made by the Modeling Instruction reform curriculum. This approach emphasizes the practices of "Developing and using models" and "Computational thinking" highlighted by the NRC K-12 science standards framework. We taught 9th-grade students in a Modeling-Instruction-based physics course to construct computational models using the VPython programming environment. Numerical computation within the Modeling Instruction curriculum provides coherence among the curriculum's different force and motion models, links the various representations which the curriculum employs, and extends the curriculum to include real-world problems that are inaccessible to a purely analytic approach.

An ideal wiggler with infinitely wide pole pieces may be treated as a linear eleme nt, and has no impact on the dynamic aperture. However, the integrated nonlinear components from a real wiggler with integrated field over 100 T 2 m can be significant, and the choice of methods for studying the effects in such cases is limited at present. We present two possibilities for symplectic tracking through a wiggler taking full account of the nonlinear components of the field, compare the results with

Notes Notes Notes ERSUG Meeting Summary Notes, November 15, 1999 Here are some highlights from the discussions (excepting the items contributed by ERSUG Chair, Bas Bramms below): During the state of NERSC presentation by Jim Craw a primary topic of discussion was the issue of the processing capabilities of the PVP cluster. Since the upgrade of the batch system processors to SV1s, some concern has been expressed about the relatively poorer processing capabilities of the J90SE processors on the interactive Killeen system. Naturally everybody would prefer having all the processors on Killeen also upgraded to SV1s. This would both make the system more uniform (upcoming compiler releases are expected to diverge with more optimization in place for the SV1s) and performance would be improved (especially important to 2-3 groups).

Adapting compilation techniques to enhance the packing of instructions into registers  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The architectural design of embedded systems is becoming increasingly idiosyncratic to meet varying constraints regarding energy consumption, code size, and execution time. Traditional compiler optimizations are often tuned for improving general architectural constraints, yet these heuristics may not be as beneficial to less conventional designs. Instruction packing is a recently developed compiler/architectural approach for reducing energy consumption, code size, and execution time by placing the frequently occurring instructions into an Instruction Register File (IRF). Multiple IRF instructions are made accessible via special packed instruction formats. This paper presents the design and analysis of a compilation framework and its associated optimizations for improving the efficiency of instruction packing. We show that several new heuristics can be developed for IRF promotion, instruction selection, register re-assignment and instruction scheduling, leading to significant reductions in energy consumption, code size, and/or execution time when compared to results using a standard optimizing compiler targeting the IRF.

K-12 Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) in a Rural School District on the High Plains of Texas: Mechanism for Teacher Support of Innovative Formative Assessment and Instruction with Technology (iFAIT)  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The purpose of this study was to explore the evolution of collaborative practices of PLCs as they emerge when using technology based formative assessment via iFAIT or innovative Formative Assessment with Instruction and Technology developed by the researcher using audience response systems and the online data compiler, Eduphoria!. This study used sequential explanatory mixed methods to address the problems that schools face when implementing technology based formative assessments to improve instruction and student achievement. A survey administered in September 2012 and again in December 2012 provided a measure of teacher use of formative assessments, technology use in formative assessments, and perceptions of teachers using the PLC as a mechanism of support for technology based formative assessment. Training was facilitated by the researcher as PLCs worked together to develop, administer, and interpret formative assessments. Teacher interviews were conducted, and the study ended with the administration of the December 2012 survey and open-response questions for further qualitative analysis. Quantitative data analysis was completed using ANOVAs to determine if there were significant differences of teacher groups (subject taught, grade level taught, and years of teaching experience) use of iFAIT. This data analysis also included measures of frequency and paired sample t tests between the September and December 2012 responses. Qualitative data was analyzed using hand coding, word clouds, and WordSmith Tools. The triangulation of qualitative data in the quantitative data provided a narrative to document what collaborative factors affected the use of iFAIT. For school improvement and implementation of iFAIT, the study revealed that (1) with the right technology infrastructure, on-going professional development must be offered by administrators or sought after by teachers; (2) teachers must have strong beliefs in formative assessment and the technology that supports it; (3) open lines of communication must be supported through the PLC and administration; (4) teachers must see purpose in using revealing student data to drive instruction; and (5) PLCs must have common beliefs and believe that student achievement is connected to school improvement. PLCs should discuss data, share successes, and plan instruction through extended involvement in face-to-face and online venues as communities of practice.

Identification and validation of cognitive design principles for automated generation of assembly instructions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Designing effective instructions for everyday products is challenging. One reason is that designers lack a set of design principles for producing visually comprehensible and accessible instructions. We describe an approach for identifying such design principles through experiments investigating the production, preference, and comprehension of assembly instructions for furniture. We instantiate these principles into an algorithm that automatically generates assembly instructions. Finally, we perform a user study comparing our computergenerated instructions to factory-provided and highly rated hand-designed instructions. Our results indicate that the computer-generated instructions informed by our cognitive design principles significantly reduce assembly time an average of 35 % and error by 50%. Details of the experimental methodology and the implementation of the automated system are described.
