  1. The Reutter/Wade Toxicity Report and CSEPP Civilian Emergency Planning

    SciTech Connect (OSTI)

    Sorensen, J.H.

    1999-08-04T23:59:59.000Z

    The Reutter/Wade analysis (Reutter and Wade 1994) was undertaken to improve the technical basis for assessing battlefield casualties from deployment of chemical weapons containing nerve and sulfur mustard agent payloads. The analysis sought to utilize available data and modern, accepted, toxicological methods to develop agent-specific casualty estimators for U.S. military forces. The authors also estimated qualitative confidence levels for each estimator based on the quality and quantity of the data. For percutaneous and inhalation vapor exposures, the report estimated cumulative exposures necessary to achieve lethal (LCt{sub 50}), severe (ED{sub 50}), threshold (percutaneous vapor only, ECt{sub 50}), or mild (nasal vapor, ECt{sub 50}) effects. For percutaneous liquid exposures, the report estimated lethal (LD{sub 50}) and severe (ED{sub 50}) doses. The vapor exposures necessary to achieve mild ocular effects were also estimated. This report examines potential implications of the Reutter/Wade study for off-site or civilian emergency planning in the Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program (CSEPP) and summarizes principal findings of the Reutter/Wade report, the National Academy review of Reutter/Wade, and the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA) expert panel assessment of Reutter/Wade casualty estimators. This report also identifies how estimates of human health effects are used in CSEPP, organized by functional planning topics. Finally CSEPP casualty estimators are considered in light of the Reutter/Wade work.

  6. QER- Comment of Jennifer Riley

    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    To Whom It May Concern - I am writing to strongly object to the proposed natural gas pipeline extension from Wright, NY to Dracut, MA. There would be no benefit to Massachusetts whatsoever from such a pipeline, which would carry natural gas ultimately to be exported. It would, however, damage sensitive ecosystems and farmland across the state, and carry a constant risk of explosion and leaks. Now is the time to turn decisively away from the use of fossil fuels, especially such a potent greenhouse gas as methane. Governor Patrick has committed our state to a clean energy future, and we are seeing unprecedented development of renewable energy projects. When you add in sensible and planned conservation efforts, it becomes abundantly clear that we do not need the natural gas from this pipeline - even if we were it's intended recipients. This proposed pipeline would benefit only the natural gas companies involved, and would cause significant damage not only to the environment of Massachusetts, but would also contribute to greenhouse gases in the atmosphere at a time when it is imperative that we reduce atmospheric CO2. I cannot urge you strongly enough to deny approval of this pipeline; it is not the way forward. - Jennifer Riley

  9. QER- Comment of Jennifer Markens

    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    To the committee: In Germany, utilities companies who increased reliance on fossil fuels are now showing drastic losses. Utility revenues are spiraling. Is the Northeast going down this path? RWE"s Terium reported dismal earnings, and admitted that the utility had invested too heavily in fossil fuel plants at a time when it should have been thinking about renewables. Sadly, this model requires that utility companies work with communities around developing a different model. This model of renewable energy is a more resilient system, and offers long term stability with none of the down side of fossil fuels. It is clear that in the Merger between Northeast Utilities and Nstar, the fossil fuel death spiral is being continued, making us less competitive in world markets. A further concern for our small state is that with leaky, radioactive Marcellus gas going through our aquifers, and across some of our best heritage soils and farmlands, our food and products will suffer on world markets, too, since other countries are far more advanced in legislation about food and product safety. No one is going to buy radioactive maple syrup . . . or any farm products that absorb neurotoxins. Basically, any product that uses water for production will be adversely affected, never mind the health and well being of Massachusetts citizens whose health can be compromised, and the enormous loss of income, land, water, and expense of importing water, or effectively treating it- if that's possible. Our state will pay for this poor decision for decades and this decision will knee cap nearly every industry in Massachusetts. Our world class medical facilities will be overburdened, and if current practices are any indication, their medical research is likely to be muffled to protect and industry that has no interest in protecting us. This is a plan to enrich individuals at the expense of our citizens. We have the resources, and willing participants to make a different plan. High pressure pipelines represent the lowest and least effective use of eminent domain at this point in history and this is a foolhardy step for our state. Best regards, Jennifer Markens

    To the U.S. Department of Energy: While there are many who deny climate change, the storms and changes in the atmosphere are undeniable. Fifty percent of the U.S. is experiencing drought. Water shortages and food shortages around the world are creating instability. While we can be grateful to fossil fuels for many things, the delay in addressing climate change is long overdue. While there are shale deposits in New York, it is well known that they are radioactive, and that transport to neighboring states is likely to have severe adverse consequences to populations in close proximity to these shales. It is further concerning that with 50% of the U.S. now in severe drought, a fossil fuel policy that uses and ruins billions of gallons of drinking water, is dangerous to our survival and health. The Marcellus shale is located under millions of acres of forest to our immediate west that provide balance to the CO2 emitted: and there are efforts to overcome legislation protecting those lands and the Adirondack region of the Eastern U.S. If this is widely developed, our air quality east of that will be horrible: further, becoming the shipping grid for the Marcellus will leave our state a radioactive wasteland from which the state will never recover. These are private investment companies, with a clear agenda of shipping gas overseas. This is overbuilding with the clear intent of shipment abroad and even their local representatives state that whatever capacity is left over is theirs to do with as they please. Further, in articles featured in Barron’s the proposing company makes a boast of overcoming local laws and regulations: which is a sad slap in the face to millions of earnest, law abiding business people who work within existing law. The whole manner of approach by this company is repugnant: lies, falsehoods, secrets, and it is set up to insure that they are completely without accountability for whatever follows. If we are simply a plutocracy, or oligarchy, with no real agency in limiting the power of these wealthy private investment interests to overcome local and generational efforts to steward and protect our nation, then I expect you will enact the false processes of a sham. If this means anything to the individuals who actually administer and regulate policy then I hope you will use your agency to protect the citizens of this nation: not the wealthiest, but those most genuinely dedicated to democracy over private profit. There is NO reason to allow these pipelines. By the date of its completion our region is slated to become energy independent of fossil fuels and we can avoid the spot market by repairing the existing pipelines that bilk 1 billion dollars from ratepayers, we can reduce usage (my family is already involved in this) and increase independent solar use. We have looked into this, and this investment makes more long term sense for our state and region. If gas is so safe, why must it be exempt from clean air, clean water, and clean drinking water legislation. Our leadership needs to consider whether we would be better off leaving this in the ground, rather than ruining drinking water, adding to pollution, and destroying our nation. We have the example of forward thinking in other countries, and its a shame that our nation lags so far behind because of the greed of private and obscenely wealthy individuals. Please, I beg you . . . save your nation from useless destruction and greed. Best regards, Jennifer Markens

    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    The term natural gas is deceptive: the gas increasingly available to the Northeast is unconventional gas, and is higher in radioactivity (Resnikoff, 2012), as well as chemical content from hydraulic fracturing that is deadly to biological integrity- known carcinogens, neurotoxins, poisons . . . there is no oversight of what is in these pipelines. Pipelines leak at a rate of between 8% and 11%: : The proposed pipeline(s) runs through every single aquifer that supplies drinking water to residents of Massachusetts. Marcellus gas also has a high likelihood of increasing lung cancer among gas customers in Massachusetts, as detailed in Resnikoff's 2012 executive summary. The advertising currently being played over and over again on our airwaves is chilling in the face of this known risk. The fact that unconventional gas ruins drinking water at alarming rates, and the acquisition of this gas is structured in a manner that guarantees no accountability or liability for desecration of arguably the most basic necessity for life is being falsely advertised as "better for the environment". There are not only worse emissions from this industry, but a second, concomitant ruining of water. Both Northeast Utilities and Kinder Morgan stand to make significant profit for their private investors. Meanwhile, Massachusetts are being asked to subsidize the destruction of their homes, their health, their water, and their neighborhoods to enrich a few individuals who are seeking a shipping route manipulating "eminent domain" to sell shale gas abroad. This is a destructive and extreme plan, and there are many other options that have not been adequately explored or investigated. In this instance, windmills off the coast seems a lot less immediately destructive than poisoning our drinking water. Or is the intention to euthanize a certain number of citizens? Best regards, Jennifer Markens

    The presence of radon in natural gas is well known. However, unconventional gas from the Marcellus shale has much higher concentrations of radioactivity. (Resnikoff, 2012) In his 2012 executive summary, Resnikoff warns that New York City residents will be at far higher risk for lung cancer and deadly illness due to the short distances from wells to dwellings. He reports that the potential for deaths is exponentially increased by use of Marcellus shale gas in NYC. This is would clearly be true for Massachusetts, being in even closer proximity to Marcellus Shale deposits. It is a given that a pipeline extending from Albany to the Boston coast is both setting up further expansion of hydraulic fracturing, and shipping it overseas, for mostly private profit at great public expense; and loss. It is further concerning that this exponentially higher radioactive gas will travel through every single drinking water aquifer in Massachusetts, as well as near existing homes. Pipelines leak at a rate of 8 to 11 %, as currently maintained. (There are concerns about the proposing company's funding of maintenance by one of their second tier investors: one who has actual liability for the actions of the company.) A further concern is that both Northeast Utilities and the proposing entities are mostly investment companies, who happen to have assets that provide gas and electric supplies to the region. Because new pipeline infrastructure is paid for by citizens in advance and not the for-profit entities, this is basically an extortion scheme to rob citizens, towns, states, and our nation of resources to expand private and frankly, obscene wealth. This "need" in the Northeast, appears to be highly trumped up, but in no way requires the magnitude of supply that will come through the state with these pipelines. The pipeline company's representatives acknowledge that the longer-term intent is shipment abroad. This gas is produced destroying an tragic amount of drinking water, and ruins further drinking water in disposing of ruined, chemically destroyed water. What is being proposed - expanding reliance on radioactive gas, running it through our drinking water, our neighborhoods - will likely result in euthanizing citizens. Whatever the expensive advertisements may shout, the hidden truth of this is sinister. It's gas we don't need at a total cost to people, property, safety and health that we cannot afford. Best regards, Jennifer Markens

  8. QER- Comment of Jennifer Markens 8

    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    I am writing to express profound concern about the proposed pipeline that will bring shale gas directly from the Marcellus shale beds all along the top of Northern Massachusetts. After careful examination over the past three months, since this was announced, I strongly feel that this scheme has very little to do with the needs of Massachusetts residents for "more gas" and much more to do with the needs of a private, obscenely wealthy corporation to profit from the Marcellus shale by bringing this gas to port and its waiting tankers, for sale abroad. This pipeline is many times larger than any current demand by a mind-boggling factor: there are other pipeline expansion/development efforts underway, also running through Massachusetts. It is very clear that we are being set up as the shipping and storage grid for the Marcellus shale. Marcellus gas is well known to be high in radioactivity. A report by Marvin Resnikoff, Phd. details reasons why bringing this gas to New York will be deadly to citizens. Given Massachusetts proximity to the Marcellus shale, everything in that report would be equally true for Massachusetts. Fugitive emissions will ruin land all across Norther Mass, and permanently destroy water and land. This level of radioactivity: the benzene, neurotoxins, VOC's and carcinogens will be pumped all over Massachusetts under high pressure to meet shipping deadlines: so that an obscenely wealthy company can make profits for a handful of individuals while all of the expense, risk, and destruction, now and in the future will be put on Massachusetts citizens: now and for many years in the future. Due to the endless advertising budgets of the gas industry, the public has no idea how much their safety and well being are at risk, when radioactive gas, and the chemicals used to produce and extract shale gas, are shipped through neighborhoods and yards for sale abroad. This pipeline is being planned as a feeder line all around the Marcellus shale. This has the additional concern of opening up gas development in NY: This will erase any benefits from closing coal plants and our Massachusetts air quality will grow worse: not be improved. While gas burns cleanly, its production now destroys drinking water, and contributes in a far worse manner to climate change. It is deeply concerning that only gas investment interests were involved in this decision: that our electrical infrastructure is now monopolized by gas investment interests, and that rates to consumers of electricity are determined by a corporation whose principle concern in gas investment and development for private profit: Even the consultants who determined this "need" were primarily involved in gas investments and development. There was NO effort to seek alternatives, and there has been no investigation of the long term destruction to Massachusetts, the safety of citizens, or the safety and well being of land within our state borders. NO renewable and less invasive option was considered, and the meetings held that made this determination were secretive. Northeast Utilities posted a profit following a merger. The expense of this seems to have been passed on to electricity customers: and prices on the "spot" market can be artificially inflated to create advantageous scenarios for gas investment interests. A further concern is that the only people involved in determining this need appear to have both the power to create the need, and a means of filling it which provides windfall for themselves. All of these entities have been involved with Massachusetts before: violating merger agreements: FERC agreements: DPU agreements according to what we have observed: NSTAR/NU immediately eliminated work positions despite merger agreements with the DPU: TGP has failed to complete restoration and conservation agreements from their existing pipeline, according to citizens living along the southern, existing route, and I have no confidence, as a citizen, that our electrical bill or the tariff imposed will be used for anything that will benefit Massachusetts: only gas investments.

This paper explores the concept of test quality and its relationship with operational readiness and preventive maintenance. This paper also considers the frequencies of component testing. Test quality is related to a test`s ability to detect degradation that can cause component failure. The quality of the test depends on several factors, including specific parameters measured, system or component conditions, and instrument accuracy. The quality of some currently required tests for check valves, motor-operated valves, and pumps is also discussed. Suggestions are made to improve test quality by measuring different parameters, testing valves under load, and testing positive displacement pumps at high pressure and centrifugal pumps at high flow rate conditions. These suggestions can help to improve the level of assurance of component operational readiness gained from testing.

    The present invention relates to an empirical electrical method for remote sensing of steam quality utilizing flow-through grids which allow measurement of the electrical properties of a flowing two-phase mixture. The measurement of steam quality in the oil field is important to the efficient application of steam assisted recovery of oil. Because of the increased energy content in higher quality steam it is important to maintain the highest possible steam quality at the injection sandface. The effectiveness of a steaming operation without a measure of steam quality downhole close to the point of injection would be difficult to determine. Therefore, a need exists for the remote sensing of steam quality.

    There are two important reasons for Software Quality Assurance (SQA) at Allied-Signal Inc., Kansas City Division (KCD): First, the benefits from SQA make good business sense. Second, the Department of Energy has requested SQA. This handbook is one of the first steps in a plant-wide implementation of Software Quality Assurance at KCD. The handbook has two main purposes. The first is to provide information that you will need to perform software quality assurance activities. The second is to provide a common thread to unify the approach to SQA at KCD. 2 figs.

    SciTech Connect (OSTI)

    Wooley, D.R.

    2000-08-01T23:59:59.000Z

    The US heavy reliance on fossil fuels is a central obstacle to improving air quality and preventing catastrophic climate change. To solve this problem will require a combination of financial incentives and market rules that strongly encourage development of renewable energy resources to meet electric power demand. One promising policy option is to allow renewable energy resources to directly participate in air pollution emission trading mechanisms. Currently, the clean air benefits of renewable energy generally go unrecognized by regulators, under-appreciated by consumers and uncompensated by markets. Renewable energy is a key clean air alternative to conventional electricity generation, and the development of renewables could be stimulated by changes to the Clean Air Act's emissions trading programs. As Congress revisits clean air issues over the next several years, renewable energy representatives could push for statutory changes that reward the renewable energy industry for the air quality benefits it provides. By also becoming involved in key US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state rule-making cases, the renewables industry could influence the structure of emissions trading programs and strengthen one of the most persuasive arguments for wind, solar and biomass energy development.

We have no real news any longer, so it takes much work to find out about things that affect our lives as citizens. This opportunity for comment, for example, is really not in any sense "an opportunity for public commentary" since the U.S. public is largely uninformed in any real sense.

  7. QER- Comment of Jennifer Markens 6

    Broader source: Energy.gov [DOE]

    Hello, I am writing in concern about efforts by Kinder Morgan to locate in conservation lands along the Northern area of Massachusetts. These lands are the watershed for our whole state, and this infiltration by two gas investment companies: Northeast Utilities and Kinder Morgan is dangerous to our state's water, and violate the rights of our small state to a clean, safe environment. Further, these lands, and the donations that support them are our state heritage. And there are further concerns. Massachusetts is about to find out what the term "resource curse" means. At the moment, Massachusetts has abundant water. The Marcellus shale is our near neighbor. Our watersheds are now under assault. This is happening right now, in all of Massachusetts' watersheds. Northeast Utilities, now a Connecticut gas investment company, appears to be working aggressively with investment company, Texas –based, Kinder Morgan to gain control of water in Massachusetts. The proposed gas pipeline is using monopoly owned electrical grids to snake through protected aquifers and watersheds, with pipelines known to carry radioactive gas from the Marcellus, along with benzene, neurotoxins, and endocrine disrupting chemicals. Pipelines leak. They also explode. Blast zones created by high pressure, high volume gas pipelines, running adjacent to high voltage, direct current ,electrical cables, are deliberately planned to run right through populated areas. This will gut rural community economies, reducing property values, making sure there is less public oversight of these regions, while placing these areas under the control of privately owned gas investment entities. The gas industry is exempt from clean air, clean water, and clean drinking water legislation. If gas is so clean and safe, why is that necessary? . The idea of "cheap gas" is a falsehood. Gas extraction comes at an exorbitant price: billions of gallons of drinking water, necessary for human life, are destroyed for each well head created. In order to keep up with current demand, thousands of new wells must be drilled each year, as older wells decline in production. And that's for U.S. demand: worldwide demand is immanent. Disposal of ruined drinking water is also a problem, and significant amounts of this chemically poisoned, ruined water are dumped into public waterways, even across state borders, or are pumped and dumped back into the ground. Fifty percent of our nation is currently experiencing severe drought. Gas pipelines proposed for the state are as much a grab for Massachusetts' water and water regions, as it is to set up a shipping route for gas investment interests abroad. Our urban legislators and officials may be vulnerable to gas investment lobbying: hence the limp legislative response on fixing existing gas leaks that have bilked over 1 billion dollars from ratepayers, and flouted DPU authority. Water treatment plants cannot address the toxicity of ruined water, and unless Massachusetts citizens don't want to be used as human filters by gas industry investment greed, this had better be stopped. Please stop this. It makes a mockery of every environmental effort of our state a region, and is completely unnecessary. Sincerely, Jennie Markens Best regards, Jennie Markens

    Ribosome is a molecular machine that moves on a mRNA track while, simultaneously, polymerizing a protein using the mRNA also as the corresponding template. We define, and analytically calculate, two different measures of the efficiency of this machine. However, we arugue that its performance is evaluated better in terms of the translational fidelity and the speed with which it polymerizes a protein. We define both these quantities and calculate these analytically. Fidelity is a measure of the quality of the products while the total quantity of products synthesized in a given interval depends on the speed of polymerization. We show that for synthesizing a large quantity of proteins, it is not necessary to sacrifice the quality. We also explore the effects of the quality control mechanism on the strength of mechano-chemical coupling. We suggest experiments for testing some of the ideas presented here.

    Effective communication among air safety professionals is only as good as the information being communicated. Data sharing cannot be effective unless the data are relevant to aviation safety problems, and decisions based on faulty data are likely to be invalid. The validity of aviation safety data depends on satisfying two primary characteristics. Data must accurately represent or conform to the real world (conformance), and it must be relevant or useful to addressing the problems at hand (utility). The FAA, in efforts to implement the Safety Performance Analysis System (SPAS), identified significant problems in the quality of the data which SPAS and FAA air safety professionals would use in defining the state of aviation safety in the US. These finding were reinforced by Department of Transportation Inspector General and General Accounting Office investigations into FAA surveillance of air transport operations. Many recent efforts to improve data quality have been centered on technological solutions to the problems. They concentrate on reducing errors in the data (conformance), but they cannot adequately address the relationship of data to need (utility). Sandia National Laboratories, working with the FAA`s Airport and Aircraft Safety Research and Development Division and the Flight Standards Service, has been involved in four programs to assist FAA in addressing their data quality problems. The Sandia approach has been data-driven rather than technology-driven. In other words, the focus has been on first establishing the data requirements by analyzing the FAA`s surveillance and decision-making processes. This process analysis looked at both the data requirements and the methods used to gather the data in order to address both the conformance and utility problems inherent in existing FAA data systems. This paper discusses Sandia`s data quality programs and their potential improvements to the safety analysis processes and surveillance programs of the FAA.

    The Indoor Environment Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) teamed with seven universities to participate in a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Center of Excellence (COE) for research on environmental quality in aircraft. This report describes research performed at LBNL on selecting and evaluating sensors for monitoring environmental quality in aircraft cabins, as part of Project 7 of the FAA's COE for Airliner Cabin Environmental Research (ACER)1 effort. This part of Project 7 links to the ozone, pesticide, and incident projects for data collection and monitoring and is a component of a broader research effort on sensors by ACER. Results from UCB and LBNL's concurrent research on ozone (ACER Project 1) are found in Weschler et al., 2007; Bhangar et al. 2008; Coleman et al., 2008 and Strom-Tejsen et al., 2008. LBNL's research on pesticides (ACER Project 2) in airliner cabins is described in Maddalena and McKone (2008). This report focused on the sensors needed for normal contaminants and conditions in aircraft. The results are intended to complement and coordinate with results from other ACER members who concentrated primarily on (a) sensors for chemical and biological pollutants that might be released intentionally in aircraft; (b) integration of sensor systems; and (c) optimal location of sensors within aircraft. The parameters and sensors were selected primarily to satisfy routine monitoring needs for contaminants and conditions that commonly occur in aircraft. However, such sensor systems can also be incorporated into research programs on environmental quality in aircraft cabins.

    This report describes and summarizes the results of a quality assurance (QA) study of the Gamma Knife, a nuclear medical device used for the gamma irradiation of intracranial lesions. Focus was on the physical aspects of QA and did not address issues that are essentially medical, such as patient selection or prescription of dose. A risk-based QA assessment approach was used. Sample programs for quality control and assurance are included. The use of the Gamma Knife was found to conform to existing standards and guidelines concerning radiation safety and quality control of external beam therapies (shielding, safety reviews, radiation surveys, interlock systems, exposure monitoring, good medical physics practices, etc.) and to be compliant with NRC teletherapy regulations. There are, however, current practices for the Gamma Knife not covered by existing, formalized regulations, standards, or guidelines. These practices have been adopted by Gamma Knife users and continue to be developed with further experience. Some of these have appeared in publications or presentations and are slowly finding their way into recommendations of professional organizations.

    Slag quality had deteriorated recently. Without the explicit approval for slag quality by the Illinois Department of Transportation, the slag would not be saleable. Disposal of slag to landfills was going to be an expensive solution and rife with environmental concerns. A slag quality control program embarked on in mid-1994 restored slag quality to desired specifications. This paper describes the changes in slag pit practice adopted following extensive tests performed on cooling slag under controlled conditions.

    The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) conducted the National Coal Quality Inventory (NaCQI) between 1999 and 2005 to address a need for quality information on coals that will be mined during the next 20-30 years. Collaboration between the USGS, State geological surveys, universities, coal burning utilities, and the coal mining industry plus funding support from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) permitted collection and submittal of coal samples for analysis. The chemical data (proximate and ultimate analyses; major, minor and trace element concentrations) for 729 samples of raw or prepared coal, coal associated shale, and coal combustion products (fly ash, hopper ash, bottom ash and gypsum) from nine coal producing States are included. In addition, the project identified a new coal reference analytical standard, to be designated CWE-1 (West Elk Mine, Gunnison County, Colorado) that is a high-volatile-B or high-volatile-A bituminous coal with low contents of ash yield and sulfur, and very low, but detectable contents of chlorine, mercury and other trace elements.

  2. Quality Control by Artificial Vision

    Computational technology has fundamentally changed many aspects of our lives. One clear evidence is the development of artificial-vision systems, which have effectively automated many manual tasks ranging from quality inspection to quantitative assessment. In many cases, these machine-vision systems are even preferred over manual ones due to their repeatability and high precision. Such advantages come from significant research efforts in advancing sensor technology, illumination, computational hardware, and image-processing algorithms. Similar to the Special Section on Quality Control by Artificial Vision published two years ago in Volume 17, Issue 3 of the Journal of Electronic Imaging, the present one invited papers relevant to fundamental technology improvements to foster quality control by artificial vision, and fine-tuned the technology for specific applications. We aim to balance both theoretical and applied work pertinent to this special section theme. Consequently, we have seven high-quality papers resulting from the stringent peer-reviewing process in place at the Journal of Electronic Imaging. Some of the papers contain extended treatment of the authors work presented at the SPIE Image Processing: Machine Vision Applications conference and the International Conference on Quality Control by Artificial Vision. On the broad application side, Liu et al. propose an unsupervised texture image segmentation scheme. Using a multilayer data condensation spectral clustering algorithm together with wavelet transform, they demonstrate the effectiveness of their approach on both texture and synthetic aperture radar images. A problem related to image segmentation is image extraction. For this, O'Leary et al. investigate the theory of polynomial moments and show how these moments can be compared to classical filters. They also show how to use the discrete polynomial-basis functions for the extraction of 3-D embossed digits, demonstrating superiority over Fourier-basis functions for this task. Image registration is another important task for machine vision. Bingham and Arrowood investigate the implementation and results in applying Fourier phase matching for projection registration, with a particular focus on nondestructive testing using computed tomography. Readers interested in enriching their arsenal of image-processing algorithms for machine-vision tasks should find these papers enriching. Meanwhile, we have four papers dealing with more specific machine-vision tasks. The first one, Yahiaoui et al., is quantitative in nature, using machine vision for real-time passenger counting. Occulsion is a common problem in counting objects and people, and they circumvent this issue with a dense stereovision system, achieving 97 to 99% accuracy in their tests. On the other hand, the second paper by Oswald-Tranta et al. focuses on thermographic crack detection. An infrared camera is used to detect inhomogeneities, which may indicate surface cracks. They describe the various steps in developing fully automated testing equipment aimed at a high throughput. Another paper describing an inspection system is Molleda et al., which handles flatness inspection of rolled products. They employ optical-laser triangulation and 3-D surface reconstruction for this task, showing how these can be achieved in real time. Last but not least, Presles et al. propose a way to monitor the particle-size distribution of batch crystallization processes. This is achieved through a new in situ imaging probe and image-analysis methods. While it is unlikely any reader may be working on these four specific problems at the same time, we are confident that readers will find these papers inspiring and potentially helpful to their own machine-vision system developments.

    A telephone survey was conducted to evaluate the quality of service provided to the primary customers of the Corporate Ergonomics Group (CEG). One hundred clients who received services between October 1993 and June 1994 were asked questions on their expectations, implementation of ergonomic recommendations, follow-ups, time required, productivity improvements, symptom alleviation, and satisfaction. Suggestions on how processes could be improved were also solicited. In general, recommendations are being implemented, worksite evaluations are going smoothly, and customers are satisfied with the process. The CEG was pleased to learn that half of the people who implemented recommendations experienced improvements in productivity, and four out of five symptomatic customers experienced partial or complete relief. Through analysis of the data and by studying clients` suggestions for process improvement, the CEG has developed a strategy for changing and improving current procedures and practices. These plans can be found in the last section of this report.

    The potential for electroless nickel coatings in oilfield and petrochemical applications is quite high. The greatest obstacle to their use has been a reputation for poor quality due to a lack of quality control in many plating shops. To overcome this, electroless nickel shops should not only have a quality control program in their operation, but must also document its use and success. This article describes how a plating shoe can develop the necessary procedures, manuals, and paperwork trail to offer quality assurance and to satisfy customers.

Box 1625 M/S 6122, Idaho Falls, ID 83415-6122 2Quality Engineer, RPS Program, Idaho National Laboratory 3Quality Engineer, RPS Program, Idaho National Laboratory Contact: Voice: (208) 533-7550 Email: Drake.Kirkham@inl.gov Abstract. The Radioisotope Power Systems Program of the Idaho National Laboratory makes an empirical case for a highly integrated Quality Assurance function pertaining to the preparation, assembly, testing, storage and transportation of 238Pu fueled radioisotope thermoelectric generators. Case data represents multiple campaigns including the Pluto/New Horizons mission, the Mars Science Laboratory mission in progress, and other related projects. Traditional Quality Assurance models would attempt to reduce cost by minimizing the role of dedicated Quality Assurance personnel in favor of either functional tasking or peer-based implementations. Highly integrated Quality Assurance adds value by placing trained quality inspectors on the production floor side-by-side with nuclear facility operators to enhance team dynamics, reduce inspection wait time, and provide for immediate, independent feedback. Value is also added by maintaining dedicated Quality Engineers to provide for rapid identification and resolution of corrective action, enhanced and expedited supply chain interfaces, improved bonded storage capabilities, and technical resources for requirements management including data package development and Certificates of Inspection. A broad examination of cost-benefit indicates highly integrated Quality Assurance can reduce cost through the mitigation of risk and reducing administrative burden thereby allowing engineers to be engineers, nuclear operators to be nuclear operators, and the cross-functional team to operate more efficiently. Applicability of this case extends to any high-value, long-term project where traceability and accountability are determining factors.

    This paper describes two stylized alternative visions of how the power system might evolve to meet future requirements for the high quality electricity service that modern digital economies demand, a supergrids paradigm and a dispersed paradigm. Some of the economics of the dispersed vision are explored, and perspectives are presented on both the choice of homogeneous universal power quality upstream in the electricity supply chain and on the extremely heterogeneous requirements of end-use loads. It is argued that meeting the demanding requirements of sensitive loads by local provision of high quality power may be more cost effective than increasing the quality of universal homogeneous supply upstream in the legacy grid. Finally, the potential role of microgrids in delivering heterogeneous power quality is demonstrated by reference to two ongoing microgrid tests in the U.S. and Japan.

    This report summarizes the accomplishments of the Water Quality Project on the Little Big horn River during the summer of 1995. The majority of the summer was spent collecting data on the Little Big Horn River, then testing the water samples for a number of different tests which was done at the Little Big Horn College in Crow Agency, Montana. The intention of this study is to preform stream quality analysis to gain an understanding of the quality of selected portion of the river, to assess any impact that the existing developments may be causing to the environment and to gather base-line data which will serve to provide information concerning the proposed development. Citizens of the reservation have expressed a concern of the quality of the water on the reservation; surface waters, ground water, and well waters.

    2011-08-08T23:59:59.000Z

    The second law of thermodynamics implies that no macroscopic system may oscillate indefinitely without consuming energy. The question of the number of possible oscillations and the coherent quality of these oscillations remain unanswered. This paper proves the upper-bounds on the number and quality of such oscillations when the system in question is homogeneously driven and has a discrete network of states. In a closed system, the maximum number of oscillations is bounded by the number of states in the network. In open systems, the size of the network bounds the quality factor of oscillation. This work also explores how the quality factor of macrostate oscillations, such as would be observed in chemical reactions, are bounded by the smallest equivalent loop of the network, not the size of the entire system. The consequences of this limit are explored in the context of chemical clocks and limit cycles.

    The paper presents the possibility of fast and quality azimuth disambiguation of vector magnetogram data regardless of location on the solar disc. The new Super Fast and Quality (SFQ) code of disambiguation is tried out on well-known models of Metcalf et al. (2006), Leka et al. (2009) and artificial model of fixed configuration AR 10930 (Rudenko et al., 2010). We make comparison of Hinode SOT SP vector magnetograms of AR 10930 disambiguated with three codes: SFQ, NPFC (Georgoulis, 2005), and SME (Rudenko et al., 2010). We exemplify the SFQ disambiguation of SDO/HMI measurements of the full disc. The preliminary examination indicates that the SFQ algorithm provides better quality than NPFC and is comparable to SME. In contrast to other codes, SFQ supports relatively high quality of results regardless of the magnetogram proximity to the limb (when being very close to the limb, it is efficient unlike all other algorithms).

    2008-01-15T23:59:59.000Z

    The decommissioning of AECL's Whiteshell Laboratories is Canada's largest nuclear decommissioning project to date. This research laboratory has operated for forty years since it was set up in 1963 in eastern Manitoba as the Whiteshell Nuclear Research Establishment, complete with 60 MW(Th) test reactor, hot cells, particle accelerators, and multiple large-scale research programs. Returning the site to almost complete green state will require several decades of steady work in combination with periods of storage-with-surveillance. In this paper our approach to maintaining quality during the long decommissioning period is explained. In this context, 'quality' includes both regulatory aspects (compliance with required standards) and business aspects (meeting the customers' needs and exceeding their expectations). Both aspects are discussed, including examples and lessons learned. The five years of development and implementation of a quality assurance program for decommissioning the WL site have led to a number of lessons learned. Many of these are also relevant to other decommissioning projects, in Canada and elsewhere: - Early discussions with the regulator can save time and effort later in the process; - An iterative process in developing documentation allows for steady improvements and input throughout the process; - Consistent 2-way communication with staff regarding the benefits of a quality program assists greatly in adoption of the philosophy and procedures; - Top-level management must lead in promoting quality; - Field trials of procedures ('beta testing') ensures they are easy to use as well as useful. Success in decommissioning the Whiteshell Laboratories depends on the successful implementation of a rigorous quality program. This will help to ensure both safety and efficiency of all activities on site, from planning through execution and reporting. The many aspects of maintaining this program will continue to occupy quality practitioners in AECL, reaping steady benefits to AECL and to its customers, the people of Canada.

    This paper reports on indoor air quality (IAQ) which has become a pervasive problem plaguing the building industry worldwide. Poor IAQ in commercial and office buildings is primarily related to new building technology, new materials and equipment and energy management operating systems. Occupants of buildings with air quality problems suffer from a common series of symptoms. As early as 1982, ASHRAE, realizing the significance of the problem, produced an IAQ position statement that identified strategies for solving IAQ problems. Many of those strategies have now been implemented, including Standard 62-1989, Ventilation for Acceptable Air Quality; Standard 90.1, Energy Efficient Design of New Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings; the 100 series of energy standards; and Guideline 1, Guideline for Commissioning of HVAC Systems.

    The Bundesamt fuer Strahlenschutz (BfS)--Federal Office for Radiation protection--has to guarantee that the requirements resulting from different regulations concerning planning, design, construction, operation and decommissioning of a waste repository are fulfilled. In addition, the results of the safety assessments lead to nuclear-specific requirements on the design of the plant as well as to requirements on the radioactive waste packages intended to be disposed of. Therefore, the implementation of a quality assurance (QA) and quality control (QC) system is an essential task in order to ensure that the designed quality is achieved so that the necessary precaution against damage is taken. In this paper, a detailed description of QA and QC to be applied to the planned Konrad repository as well as the basic principles and the present status of the waste package QC are indicated and discussed.
