advances, higher oil prices, advances, higher oil prices, reduced costs, and environmental needs have aligned to create a "perfect storm" of growth opportunity for a well-established method for enhancing oil recovery (EOR) in the U.S.: carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) flooding. The U.S. Department of Energy is sup- porting critical research to help America's oil producers take full advantage of that growth opportunity (see table on p. 3). CO 2 flooding is the fastest-growing EOR technique in the U.S. While production vol- umes and the number of projects for ther- mal, chemical, and other EOR processes have fallen off sharply since 1980, the num- ber of CO 2 projects has more than tripled, to more than 70 projects as of yearend 2004. Meanwhile, CO 2 production volumes have jumped twentyfold since the early 1980s

LINE-REVERSAL MEASUREMENTS OF EXCITATION AND ELECTRON TEMPERATURE IN A SHOCK TUBE  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The spectral line-reversal method has been applied to determine population-temperatures within an (argon-calcium) plasma, generated by a reflected aerodynamic shock. The measurements have been made simultaneously on (a) normal bound-bound Ca 1 lines, (b) lines involving strongly auto-ionizing levels. The agreement of the two sets of values identifies the electron-temperature with the temperature characterizing the populations of the bound excited-states, giving improved confidence in the existence of complete ther-mal equilibrium in the reflected shock. The spectral-line reversal method has been previously applied to transitions between normal bound electronic states of neutral atoms, ions or molecules, (Gaydon and Hurle 1963; Charatis and Wilkerson 1962; Parkinson and Reeves 1964).

Dynamic thermal management in chip multiprocessor systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Recently, processor power density has been increasing at an alarming rate result- ing in high on-chip temperature. Higher temperature increases current leakage and causes poor reliability. In our research, we rst propose a Predictive Dynamic Ther- mal Management (PDTM) based on Application-based Thermal Model (ABTM) and Core-based Thermal Model (CBTM) in the multicore systems. Based on predicted temperature from ABTM and CBTM, the proposed PDTM can maintain the system temperature below a desired level by moving the running application from the possi- ble overheated core to the future coolest core (migration) and reducing the processor resources (priority scheduling) within multicore systems. Furthermore, we present the Thermal Correlative Thermal Management (TCDTM), which incorporates three main components: Statistical Workload Estimation (SWE), Future Temperature Estima- tion Model (FTEM) and Temperature-Aware Thread Controller (TATC), to model the thermal correlation eect and distinguish the thermal contributions from appli- cations with dierent workload behaviors at run time in the CMP systems. The pro- posed PDTM and TCDTM enable the exploration of the tradeo between throughput and fairness in temperature-constrained multicore systems.

A Flow-Channel Analysis for the Mars Hopper  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The Mars Hopper is an exploratory vehicle designed to fly on Mars using carbon dioxide from the Martian atmosphere as a rocket propellant. The propellent gasses are thermally heated while traversing a radioisotope ther- mal rocket (RTR) engines core. This core is comprised of a radioisotope surrounded by a heat capacitive material interspersed with tubes for the propellant to travel through. These tubes, or flow channels, can be manu- factured in various cross-sectional shapes such as a special four-point star or the traditional circle. Analytical heat transfer and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) anal- yses were performed using flow channels with either a circle or a star cross- sectional shape. The nominal total inlet pressure was specified at 2,805,000 Pa; and the outlet pressure was set to 2,785,000 Pa. The CO2 inlet tem- perature was 300 K; and the channel wall was 1200 K. The steady-state CFD simulations computed the smooth-walled star shapes outlet temper- ature to be 959 K on the finest mesh. The smooth-walled circles outlet temperature was 902 K. A circle with a surface roughness specification at 0.01 mm gave 946 K and at 0.1 mm yielded 989 K. The The effects of a slightly varied inlet pressure were also examined. The analytical calculations were based on the mass flow rates computed in the CFD simulations and provided significantly higher outlet temperature results while displaying the same comparison trends. Research relating to the flow channel heat transfer studies was also done. Mathematical methods to geometrically match the cross-sectional areas of the circle and star, along with a square and equilateral triangle, were derived. A Wolfram Mathematica 8 module was programmed to analyze CFD results using Richardson Extrapolation and calculate the grid convergence index (GCI). A Mathematica notebook, also composed, computes and graphs the bulk mean temperature along a flow channels length while the user dynam- ically provides the input variables, allowing their effects on the temperature to be more easily observed.

Applying Learnable Evolution Model to Heat Exchanger Design  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A new approach to evolutionary computation, called Learnable Evolution Model (LEM), has been applied to the problem of optimizing tube structures of heat exchangers. In contrast to conventional Darwiniantype evolutionary computation algorithms that use various forms of mutation and/or recombination operators, LEM employs machine learning to guide the process of generating new individuals. A system, ISHED1, based on LEM, automatically searches for the highest capacity heat exchangers under given technical and environmental constraints. The results of experiments have been highly promising, often producing solutions exceeding the best human designs.

SUPERSENSITIVE IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION BY TYRAMIDE SIGNAL AMPLIFICATION AND NANOGOLD SILVER STAINING: THE CONTRIBUTION OF AUTOMETALLOGRAPHY AND CATALYZED REPORTER DEPOSITION TO THE REJUVENATION OF IN SITU HYBRIDIZATION.  

SciTech Connect

It is peculiar that in situ hybridization (ISH), a technique with many similarities to immunohistochemistry (IHC), has not enjoyed the phenomenal growth in both basic research and clinical applications as has its sister technique IHC. Since the late 1970s, when immunoperoxidase techniques began to be applied to routine diagnostic material and to numerous research applications, there has been a natural evolution of the IHC procedure. Namely, only a few primary antibodies were available commercially at the onset, and only one indirect and the peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) technique detection systems were in place. With the advent of avidin-biotin detection systems and monoclonal antibodies, and a viable commercial market, extraordinary growth of the procedure's applications in clinical research and diagnostic pathology occurred during the subsequent two decades. Today, IHC is automated and widely used for research purposes and, to a large extent, has become a routine diagnostic ''special stain'' in most clinical laboratories. During the same period, ISH enjoyed very little growth in both research and diagnostic applications. What has accounted for this lack of maturation of the technique? The success of IHC is part of the reason measuring a gene's encoded protein routinely and inexpensively, particularly as automation evolved, rendered IHC a more viable choice in many instances. Inherent comparative sensitivity of the procedures has also clearly been a factor. Unfortunately, the chromogenic procedures in place are often insufficiently sensitive to detect the relatively low amounts of DNA and RNA levels at which the clinical utility is to be found.

The planners for Oak Ridge's Environmental Management (EM) program quickly compiled a list of shovel-ready projects that would accomplish key DOE missions and create jobs in the region, allowing Oak Ridge to begin much work just weeks after the Recovery Act was signed into law in 2009. Oak Ridge's Recovery Act plan focused on accelerating 36 projects, from remediat- ing contaminated soil and groundwater to demolishing 49 facilities.

LOS ALAMOS, N.M. - The skyline of Los Alamos was changed LOS ALAMOS, N.M. - The skyline of Los Alamos was changed forever when 24 old buildings and structures were demol- ished with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding. "Our most significant accomplishment of 2010 was the suc- cessful completion of the decontamination and demolition of 24 old buildings and structures at Technical Area 21," said Al Chaloupka, project director of building demolition at Technical Area (TA-21). "In addition to demolishing these old buildings, the project created many jobs in northern New Mexico." Crews are scheduled to finish transporting the waste gen- erated by the TA-21 demolitions by April 2011, six months ahead of schedule. The TA-21 project, funded by $73 million from the Recovery Act, produced $16 million in savings, which

5, 2011 5, 2011 OAK RIDGE, Tenn. - The Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) re- cently celebrated the early completion of its largest Recovery Act- funded project, emptying all legacy material from Alpha 5. The clea- nout of the 613,000-square-foot facility was completed at a cost of about $100 million one month ahead of schedule. Built in 1944, Alpha 5 is the largest building at Y-12, and was formerly used for uranium separation activities. With cleanout complete, Oak Ridge's Environmental Management (EM) program plans to demol- ish the structure to reduce the site's footprint and to gain access to previously unreachable mercury sources in the soil that need to be removed. A key to the project's accelerated completion was a modified approach for sorting and removing legacy waste from the facility. Custom boxes

Gaussian Multiple Instance Learning Approach for Mapping the Slums of the World Using Very High Resolution Imagery  

SciTech Connect

In this paper, we present a computationally efficient algo- rithm based on multiple instance learning for mapping infor- mal settlements (slums) using very high-resolution remote sensing imagery. From remote sensing perspective, infor- mal settlements share unique spatial characteristics that dis- tinguish them from other urban structures like industrial, commercial, and formal residential settlements. However, regular pattern recognition and machine learning methods, which are predominantly single-instance or per-pixel classi- fiers, often fail to accurately map the informal settlements as they do not capture the complex spatial patterns. To overcome these limitations we employed a multiple instance based machine learning approach, where groups of contigu- ous pixels (image patches) are modeled as generated by a Gaussian distribution. We have conducted several experi- ments on very high-resolution satellite imagery, represent- ing four unique geographic regions across the world. Our method showed consistent improvement in accurately iden- tifying informal settlements.

Ballistic Transport at Uniform Temperature  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A paradigm for isothermal, mechanical rectification of stochastic fluctuations is introduced in this paper. The central idea is to transform energy injected by random perturbations into rigid-body rotational kinetic energy. The prototype considered in this paper is a mechanical system consisting of a set of rigid bodies in interaction through magnetic fields. The system is stochastically forced by white noise and dissipative through mechanical friction. The Gibbs-Boltzmann distribution at a specific temperature defines the unique invariant measure under the flow of this stochastic process and allows us to define ``the temperature'' of the system. This measure is also ergodic and weakly mixing. Although the system does not exhibit global directed motion, it is shown that global ballistic motion is possible (the mean-squared displacement grows like t squared). More precisely, although work cannot be extracted from thermal energy by the second law of thermodynamics, it is shown that ballistic transport from ther...

Nuclear location of minor capsid protein L2 is required for expression of a reporter plasmid packaged in HPV51 pseudovirions  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The deduced amino acid (aa) sequence of L2 of the newly sequenced HPV51 strain, isolated by Matsukura and Sugase (Ma-strain), was markedly different from that of the prototype HPV51 isolated by Nuovo et al. (Nu-strain) (GenBank (M62877)) in two regions: aa 95-99 (region I) and aa 179-186 (region II). The two regions of Ma-strain were homologous to those of the other mucosal HPVs. The aa sequences of the N-terminal and C-terminal regions of Ma-L2 and Nu-L2 were identical and contained the nuclear localizing signal (NLS). When expressed in HEK293 cells, Ma-strain L2 (Ma-L2) was located in the nucleus but Nu-strain L2 (Nu-L2), in the cytoplasm. The chimeric L2s having both Nu-L2 regions I and II were located in the cytoplasm, and those having one of them were located both in the nucleus and cytoplasm, suggesting that Nu-L2 regions I and II inhibit the NLS function. For a better understanding of a role of L2 in infection, pseudovirion (PV) preparations were produced with a reporter, Ma-strain L1, and various L2s (Ma-L2, Nu-L2, or the chimeric L2s). These PV preparations contained structurally similar particles composed of L1 and L2 and the packaged reporter plasmid at a similar level. The reporter expression was not induced in HEK293 cells after inoculation with PVs containing the L2s that are incapable of localizing in the nucleus when expressed alone. Among PVs containing L2s capable of localizing in the nucleus, the reporter expression was induced only by PVs containing Ma-L2 region I. Thus, the results indicate that the expression of the reporter in the HPV51 PV requires the nuclear localizing ability of L2 and another unknown function associated with region I.

Modeling Studies of Geothermal Systems with a Free Water Surface  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Numerical simulators developed for geothermal reservoir engineering applications generally only consider systems which are saturated with liquid water and/or steam. However, most geothermal fields are in hydraulic communicatino with shallow ground water aquifers having free surface (water level), so that production or injection operations will cause movement of the surface, and of the air in the pore spaces above the water level. In some geothermal fields the water level is located hundreds of meters below the surface (e.g. Olkaria, Kenya; Bjornsson, 1978), so that an extensive so that an extensive unsaturated zone is present. In other the caprock may be very leaky or nonexistent [e.g., Klamath Falls, oregon (Sammel, 1976)]; Cerro Prieto, Mexico; (Grant et al., 1984) in which case ther eis good hydraulic communication between the geothermal reservoir and the shallow unconfined aquifers. Thus, there is a need to explore the effect of shallow free-surface aquifers on reservoir behavior during production or injection operations. In a free-surface aquifer the water table moves depending upon the rate of recharge or discharge. This results in a high overall storativity; typically two orders of magnitude higher than that of compressed liquid systems, but one or two orders of magnitude lower than that for liquid-steam reservoirs. As a consequence, various data analysis methods developed for compressed liquid aquifers (such as conventional well test analysis methods) are not applicable to aquifer with a free surface.

Plant performance for PV1 and PV2: SMUD (Sacramento Municipal Utility District) PV2, Final report 2, April 1986-March 1987  

SciTech Connect

The Sacramento Municipal Utility Distric (SMUD) photovoltaic project is a phased installation of a 100 megawatt central station photovoltaic (PV) power plant that is being constructed adjacent to the Rancho Seco Nuclear Generating Station, 30 miles southeast of Sacramento, California. SMUD, with cofunding from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the California State Department of Enrgy has designed, procured, installed, and operated two 1,000 kilowatt power generating plants (PV1 and PV2) as the first two phases of the project (Figure No. 1). PV1 deferred for budgetary reasons and to evaluate new PV technologies. Long-range load projections for the SMUD service area indicate theneed for new peaking power generation. Plans prior to the initiation of this project included coal-fired, hydroelectric and geothermal power plants. Environmental and permitting constraints within California introduced considerable uncertainty into the timing and cost of other generation options. This projectwas, therefore, initiated to proide an economic and technical basis for future electrical generation using solar energy. Ther performance data presented herein was measured, stored, and reduced by the onsite plant control and data acquisition computer.

Comparison of the Recently proposed Super Marx Generator Approach to Thermonuclear Ignition with the DT Laser Fusion-Fission Hybrid Concept by the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The recently proposed Super Marx generator pure deuterium micro-detonation ignition concept is compared to the Lawrence Livermore National Ignition Facility (NIF) Laser DT fusion-fission hybrid concept (LiFE) [1]. In a Super Marx generator a large number of ordinary Marx generators charge up a much larger second stage ultra-high voltage Marx generator, from which for the ignition of a pure deuterium micro-explosion an intense GeV ion beam can be extracted. A typical example of the LiFE concept is a fusion gain of 30, and a fission gain of 10, making up for a total gain of 300, with about 10 times more energy released into fission as compared to fusion. This means a substantial release of fission products, as in fusion-less pure fission reactors. In the Super Marx approach for the ignition of a pure deuterium micro-detonation a gain of the same magnitude can in theory be reached [2]. If feasible, the Super Marx generator deuterium ignition approach would make lasers obsolete as a means for the ignition of ther...

Anaerobic High-Throughput Cultivation Method for Isolation of Thermophiles Using Biomass-Derived Substrates  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Flow cytometry (FCM) techniques have been developed for sorting mesophilic organisms, but the difficulty increases if the target microbes are thermophilic anaerobes. We demonstrate a reliable, high-throughput method of screening thermophilic anaerobic organisms using FCM and 96-well plates for growth on biomass-relevant substrates. The method was tested using the cellulolytic thermophiles Clostridium ther- mocellum (Topt = 55 C), Caldicellulosiruptor obsidiansis (Topt = 78 C) and the fermentative hyperthermo- philes, Pyrococcus furiosus (Topt = 100 C) and Thermotoga maritima (Topt = 80 C). Multi-well plates were incubated at various temperatures for approximately 72 120 h and then tested for growth. Positive growth resulting from single cells sorted into individual wells containing an anaerobic medium was verified by OD600. Depending on the growth substrate, up to 80 % of the wells contained viable cultures, which could be transferred to fresh media. This method was used to isolate thermophilic microbes from Rabbit Creek, Yellowstone National Park (YNP), Wyoming. Substrates for enrichment cultures including crystalline cellulose (Avicel), xylan (from Birchwood), pretreated switchgrass and Populus were used to cultivate organisms that may be of interest to lignocellulosic biofuel production.

Inertial range turbulence in kinetic plasmas  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The transfer of turbulent energy through an inertial range from the driving scale to dissipative scales in a kinetic plasma followed by the conversion of this energy into heat is a fundamental plasma physics process. A theoretical foundation for the study of this process is constructed, but the details of the kinetic cascade are not well understood. Several important properties are identified: (a) the conservation of a generalized energy by the cascade; (b) the need for collisions to increase entropy and realize irreversible plasma heating; and (c) the key role played by the entropy cascade--a dual cascade of energy to small scales in both physical and velocity space--to convert ultimately the turbulent energy into heat. A strategy for nonlinear numerical simulations of kinetic turbulence is outlined. Initial numerical results are consistent with the operation of the entropy cascade. Inertial range turbulence arises in a broad range of space and astrophysical plasmas and may play an important role in the ther...

Cooling of electrically insulated high voltage electrodes down to 30 mK Khlung von elektrisch isolierten Hochspannungselektroden bis 30 mK  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Antimatter Experiment: Gravity, Interferometry, Spectroscopy (AEGIS) at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) is an experiment investigating the influence of earths gravitational force upon antimatter. To perform precise measurements the antimatter needs to be cooled to a temperature of 100 mK. This will be done in a Penning trap, formed by several electrodes, which are charged with several kV and have to be individually electrically insulated. The trap is thermally linked to a mixing chamber of a 3He-4He dilution refrigerator. Two link designs are examined, the Rod design and the Sandwich design. The Rod design electrically connects a single electrode with a heat exchanger, immersed in the helium of the mixing chamber, by a copper pin. An alumina ring and the helium electrically insulate the Rod design. The Sandwich uses an electrically insulating sapphire plate sandwiched between the electrode and the mixing chamber. Indium layers on the sapphire plate are applied to improve the ther...

Gene Expression in the Stallion Testes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Understanding the genes that regulate spermatogenesis and steroidogenesis in the testis is critical for enhancement of stallion fertility. Stallion testicular samples were used to identify candidate genes by cDNA microarrays that simultaneously assessed expression levels of 9132 genes. First, gene expression was compared between light (spermatogenically active) and dark (spermatogenically inactive) testis tissue of 1.5-year-old horses (n = 3). Ninety-three genes were differentially expressed (35 light specific, 58 dark specific) in matched paired samples. Second, gene expression was compared between testicular tissue of two mature stallions, one with normal quality semen (fertile) and one with poor quality semen (subfertile). A total of 233 genes were differentially expressed (122 in fertile tissue, 111 in subfertile tissue). Of these, phosphodiesterase 3B (PDE3B), steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein, and outer dense fiber of sperm tails 2 (ODF2) mRNAs, were localized and quantified by in situ hybridization (ISH) in mature stallions and/or in unilateral cryptorchids. ISH revealed differences (P < 0.05) among mature stallions (n = 10) for PDE3B (localized to seminiferous tubules) and StAR protein (localized to interstitial spaces) mRNAs. A positive correlation coefficient (r = .556, p = .025) was found between StAR protein mRNA and plasma concentration of testosterone. Additionally, both gene products were evaluated in 1-year-old (n = 3) and 3-year-old (n = 3) unilateral cryptorchid stallions. Expression of both PDE3B and StAR protein gene was significantly higher in mature, descended testes compared to mature, retained testes and the descended and retained testes of immature, cryptorchid stallions. StAR protein gene demonstrated significantly higher expression in immature retained testes compared to immature descended testes. A precision-cut tissue slice (PCTS) in vitro culture system was evaluated as a potential tool to study equine testes function. Testes from immature stallions (n = 3) were cut into slices (mean slice weight = 13.85 +/- 0.20 mg; mean slice thickness = 515.00 +/- 2.33 ?m) and exposed to medium containing ovine luteinizing hormone (oLH) at concentrations of 0, 5, 50 and 500 ng/ml for 6 h at 32 degrees C. Medium content of testosterone and estradiol was increased 500% and 120%, respectively, by addition of oLH versus that observed for the testis tissue slices treated with 0 ng oLH (control). An oLH concentration-dependent increase in StAR protein mRNA in tissue slices was detected by in situ hybridization; whereas, differences for PDE3B and ODF2 mRNAs were not observed. Collectively, these results demonstrate that the stallion is an excellent model for studying male fertility due to the initiation of spermatogenesis, frequency of cryptorchidism, and routine castration providing useful tissue to use for studying gene expression.

Shielding considerations for advanced space nuclear reactor systems  

SciTech Connect

To meet the anticipated future space power needs, the Los Alamos National Laboratory is developing components for a compact, 100 kW/sub e/-class heat pipe nuclear reactor. The reactor uses uranium dioxide (UO/sub 2/) as its fuel, and is designed to operate around 1500 k. Heat pipes are used to remove thermal energy from the core without the use of pumps or compressors. The reactor heat pipes transfer mal energy to thermoelectric conversion elements that are advanced versions of the converters used on the enormously successful Voyager missions to the outer planets. Advanced versions of this heat pipe reactor could also be used to provide megawatt-level power plants. The paper reviews the status of this advanced heat pipe reactor and explores the radiation environments and shielding requirements for representative manned and unmanned applications.

The Complexity of #CSP  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Bulatov (2008) has given a dichotomy for the counting constraint satisfaction problem (#CSP). A problem from #CSP is characterised by a constraint language, a fixed, finite set of relations over a finite domain. An instance of the problem uses these relations to constrain the variables in a larger set. Bulatov showed that the problem of counting the satisfying assignments of instances of any problem from #CSP is either in polynomial time (FP) or is #P-complete. His proof draws heavily on techniques from universal algebra and cannot be understood without a secure grasp of that field. We give an elementary proof of Bulatov's dichotomy, based on succinct representations, which we call frames, of a class of highly structured relations, which we call strongly rectangular. We show that these are precisely the relations which are invariant under a Mal'tsev polymorphism. En route, we give a simplification of a decision algorithm for strongly rectangular constraint languages due to Bulatov and Dalmau (2006).

DIFFERENTIAL SPECTRUM OF NEUTRONS AT CHACALTAYA-BOLIVIA  

SciTech Connect

We describe the Neutron Spectrometer Experiment installed at Chacaltaya Cosmic Rays Observatory (68 deg. O, 16.2 deg. S), located in Bolivia, at 5230 m.a.s.l. This experimental system is constituted by passive detectors which register the flux of neutrons, in an energy range of 10 KeV-20 MeV. Using the unfolding code BUNTO a peak around 1 MeV of the characteristic spectrum of neutrons was obtained. Experimental values, observed during April of 2008, are compared with similar ones carried out in 1997 at the same place, in order to look for eventual changes due to local atmosphere. A similar experiment was also carried up at the Laboratory of Testa Grigia-Italy (45.56 deg. N, 7.42 deg. E,. 3480 m.a.l.s). Data of both stations allow us to compare the spectra in order to explain the difference of neutron flux of these two stations.

Optimal control of population transfer in Markovian open quantum systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

There has long been interest to control the transfer of population between specified quantum states. Recent work has optimized the control law for closed system population transfer by using a gradient ascent pulse engineer- ing algorithm [1]. Here, a spin-boson model consisting of two-level atoms which interact with the dissipative environment, is investigated. With opti- mal control, the quantum system can invert the populations of the quantum logic states. The temperature plays an important role in controlling popula- tion transfer. At low temperatures the control has active performance, while at high temperatures it has less erect. We also analyze the decoherence be- havior of open quantum systems with optimal population transfer control, and we find that these controls can prolong the coherence time. We hope that active optimal control can help quantum solid-state-based engineering.

Preliminary design for Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) Stationkeeping Subsystem (SKSS). Task IV. Development and testing recommendations  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

The preliminary designs of Stationkeeping Subsystems (SKSS) for the OTEC Modular Experiment Plant are being prepared for a barge and spar platform. The SKSS selected by NOAA for the barge is a multiple anchor leg mooring with active tensioning (MAL), while that for the spar is a tension anchor leg (TAL) moor. The development and testing program required to provide design data and to validate performance predictions is described. Basic assumptions are made with regard to site characteristics, behavior of the SKSS and platform in the sea state, and characteristics of SKSS components. The test program is intended to provide the data necessary to confirm assumptions or to support design revisions. The testing program for the multiple anchor leg system is considered first, followed by the tension anchor leg program. Development and testing are recommended in the areas of materials, components and procedures which are beyond modest extrapolation of current ocean engineering practice. (WHK)

Potential role of the Fast Flux Test Facility and the advanced test reactor in the U.S. tritium production system  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Deparunent of Energy is currently engaged in a dual-track strategy to develop an accelerator and a conunercial light water reactor (CLWR) as potential sources of tritium supply. New analysis of the production capabilities of the Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) at the Hanford Site argues for considering its inclusion in the tritium supply,system. The use of the FFTF (alone or together with the Advanced Test Reactor [ATR] at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory) as an integral part of,a tritium production system would help (1) ensure supply by 2005, (2) provide additional time to resolve institutional and technical issues associated with the- dual-track strategy, and (3) reduce discounted total life-cycle`costs and near-tenn annual expenditures for accelerator-based systems. The FFRF would also provide a way to get an early start.on dispositioning surplus weapons-usable plutonium as well as provide a source of medical isotopes. Challenges Associated With the Dual-Track Strategy The Departinent`s purchase of either a commercial reactor or reactor irradiation services faces challenging institutional issues associated with converting civilian reactors to defense uses. In addition, while the technical capabilities of the individual components of the accelerator have been proven, the entire system needs to be demonstrated and scaled upward to ensure that the components work toge ther 1548 as a complete production system. These challenges create uncertainty over the ability of the du2a-track strategy to provide an assured tritium supply source by 2005. Because the earliest the accelerator could come on line is 2007, it would have to operate at maximum capacity for the first few years to regenerate the reserves lost through radioactive decay aftei 2005.

Enhanced Hydrogen Production in Escherichia coli Through Chemical Mutagenesis, Gene Deletion, and Transposon Mutagenesis  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We demonstrate that hydrogen production can be increased by random mutagenesis using N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) and that hydrogen production can be further increased in the chemically-mutagenized strain by targeted gene deletion and overexpression of genes related to formate metabolism. Chemical mutagenesis of Escherichia coli BW25113 hyaB hybC hycE::kan/pBS(Kan)-HycE to form strain 3/86 resulted in 109 +/- 0.5- fold more hydrogen; 3/86 lacks functional hydrogen uptake hydrogenases 1 and 2, has hydrogenproducing hydrogenase 3 inactivated from the chromosome, and has constitutively active hydrogenase 3 based on expression of the large subunit of hydrogenase 3 from a high copy number plasmid. Deleting fdoG, which encodes formate dehydrogenase O, (that diverts formate from hydrogen), from chemical mutagen 3/86 increased hydrogen production 188 +/- 0.50-fold (relative to the unmutagenized strain), and deletion of hycA, which encodes the repressor of formate hydrogen lyase (FHL), increased hydrogen production 232 +/- 0.50-fold. Deleting both fdoG and hycA increased hydrogen production 257 +/- 0.50-fold, and overexpressing fhlA along with the fdoG hycA mutations increased hydrogen 308 +/- 0.52-fold. Whole-transcriptome analysis of chemical mutagen 3/86 revealed 89 genes were induced and 31 genes were repressed. In an effort to identify chromosomal mutations in chemical mutagen 3/86, we performed comparative genome sequencing and identified two chromosomal loci with mutations in coding regions of ftnA and yebJ; however, neither gene was related to the increased hydrogen production as determined by the close vial (short) hydrogen assay. In addition, transposon mutagenesis, which is one of the most efficient strategies for creating random mutations in the genomic DNA, was performed in two different strains: E. coli BW25113 hyaB hybC hycA fdoG::kan/pCA24N-FhlA and E. coli MG1655 to identify beneficial mutations for hydrogen production. As a result of screening 461 E. coli BW25113 hyaB hybC hycA fdoG::kan/pCA24N-FhlA transformants and 1000 E. coli MG1655 transformants, three interesting mutations have been discovered in E. coli BW25113 hyaB hybC hycA fdoG::kan/pCA24N-FhlA transformants (gpsA, dipZ, glgP) and 1 beneficial mutation in E. coli MG1655 transformants (malT). When any of these genes gpsA, dipZ, or glgP is disrupted by Tn5 insertion, hydrogen production decreases 17, 3 and 8-fold, respectively. Additionally, when malT gene is disrupted by Tn5 insertion, hydrogen increases 3.4-fold.

Coupled Dynamic Analysis of Multiple Unit Floating Offshore Wind Turbine  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In the present study, a numerical simulation tool has been developed for the rotor-floater-tether coupled dynamic analysis of Multiple Unit Floating Offshore Wind Turbine (MUFOWT) in the time domain including aero-blade-tower dynamics and control, mooring dynamics and platform motion. In particular, the numerical tool developed in this study is based on the single turbine analysis tool FAST, which was developed by National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). For linear or nonlinear hydrodynamics of floating platform and generalized-coordinate-based FEM mooring line dynamics, CHARM3D program, hull-riser-mooring coupled dynamics program developed by Prof. M.H. Kims research group during the past two decades, is incorporated. So, the entire dynamic behavior of floating offshore wind turbine can be obtained by coupled FAST-CHARM3D in the time domain. During the coupling procedure, FAST calculates all the dynamics and control of tower and wind turbine including the platform itself, and CHARM3D feeds all the relevant forces on the platform into FAST. Then FAST computes the whole dynamics of wind turbine using the forces from CHARM3D and return the updated displacements and velocities of the platform to CHARM3D. To analyze the dynamics of MUFOWT, the coupled FAST-CHARM3D is expanded more and re-designed. The global matrix that includes one floating platform and a number of turbines is built at each time step of the simulation, and solved to obtain the entire degrees of freedom of the system. The developed MUFOWT analysis tool is able to compute any type of floating platform with various kinds of horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT). Individual control of each turbine is also available and the different structural properties of tower and blades can be applied. The coupled dynamic analysis for the three-turbine MUFOWT and five-turbine MUFOWT are carried out and the performances of each turbine and floating platform in normal operational condition are assessed. To investigate the coupling effect between platform and each turbine, one turbine failure event is simulated and checked. The analysis shows that some of the mal-function of one turbine in MUFOWT may induce significant changes in the performance of other turbines or floating platform. The present approach can directly be applied to the development of the remote structural health monitoring system of MUFOWT in detecting partial turbine failure by measuring tower or platform responses in the future.

Microchannel Heat Exchangers with Carbon Dioxide  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The objective of the present study was to determine the performance of CO{sub 2} microchannel evaporators and gas coolers in operational conditions representing those of residential heat pumps. A set of breadboard prototype microchannel evaporators and gas coolers was developed and tested. The refrigerant in the heat exchangers followed a counter cross-flow path with respect to the airflow direction. The test conditions corresponded to the typical operating conditions of residential heat pumps. In addition, a second set of commercial microchannel evaporators and gas coolers was tested for a less comprehensive range of operating conditions. The test results were reduced and a comprehensive data analysis, including comparison with the previous studies in this field, was performed. Capacity and pressure drop of the evaporator and gas cooler for the range of parameters studied were analyzed and are documented in this report. A gas cooler performance prediction model based on non-dimensional parameters was also developed and results are discussed as well. In addition, in the present study, experiments were conducted to evaluate capacities and pressure drops for sub-critical CO{sub 2} flow boiling and transcritical CO{sub 2} gas cooling in microchannel heat exchangers. An extensive review of the literature failed to indicate any previous systematic study in this area, suggesting a lack of fundamental understanding of the phenomena and a lack of comprehensive data that would quantify the performance potential of CO{sub 2} microchannel heat exchangers for the application at hand. All experimental tests were successfully conducted with an energy balance within {+-}3%. The only exceptions to this were experiments at very low saturation temperatures (-23 C), where energy balances were as high as 10%. In the case of evaporators, it was found that a lower saturation temperature (especially when moisture condensation occurs) improves the overall heat transfer coefficient significantly. However, under such conditions, air side pressure drop also increases when moisture condensation occurs. An increase in airflow rate also increases the overall heat transfer coefficient. Air side pressure drop mainly depends on airflow rate. For the gas cooler, a significant portion of the heat transfer occurred in the first heat exchanger module on the refrigerant inlet side. The temperature and pressure of CO{sub 2} significantly affect the heat transfer and fluid flow characteristics due to some important properties (such as specific heat, density, and viscosity). In the transcritical region, performance of CO{sub 2} strongly depends on the operating temperature and pressure. Semi-empirical models were developed for predictions of CO{sub 2} evaporator and gas cooler system capacities. The evaporator model introduced two new factors to account for the effects of air-side moisture condensate and refrigerant outlet superheat. The model agreed with the experimental results within {+-}13%. The gas cooler model, based on non-dimensional parameters, successfully predicted the experimental results within {+-}20%. Recommendations for future work on this project include redesigning headers and/or introducing flow mixers to avoid flow mal-distribution problems, devising new defrosting techniques, and improving numerical models. These recommendations are described in more detail at the end of this report.
