Experiences with waterflooding Lloydminster heavy-oil reservoirs  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

This paper compares observed and theoretical behavior of waterflood performance in heavy-oil reservoirs in the Lloydminster area of western Canada. Lack of reliable primary production history makes determination of primary recovery difficult and consequently makes additional oil recovery by waterflood difficult to quantify. Comparison of predicted and actual performance indicates that the floods are behaving as well as, if not better than, expected. Extra oil recovery by waterflood is not expected to add to the primary recovery of 3 to 8% by more than 1 to 2% or original oil in place (OOIP).

Passive orientation apparatus  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An apparatus that can return a payload to a known orientation after unknown motion, without requiring external power or complex mechanical systems. The apparatus comprises a faceted cage that causes the system to rest in a stable position and orientation after arbitrary motion. A gimbal is mounted with the faceted cage and holds the payload, allowing the payload to move relative to the stable faceted cage. The payload is thereby placed in a known orientation by the interaction of gravity with the geometry of the faceted cage, the mass of the system, and the motion of the payload and gimbal. No additional energy, control, or mechanical actuation is required. The apparatus is suitable for use in applications requiring positioning of a payload to a known orientation after arbitrary or uncontrolled motion, including remote sensing and mobile robot applications.

Petroleum geology of heavy oil in the Oriente basin of Ecuador: Exploration and exploitation challenge for the 1990s  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Published Ecuadorian government forecasts suggest that Oriente basin light oil (21-32{degree} API) production may start to decline in the early to mid-1990s. To maintain stabilized production into the next century, heavy oil reserves (10-20{degree} API) will have to be aggressively exploited. The Oriente's undeveloped proven plus probable heavy reserves are substantial and are expected to exceed 0.5 billion bbl. A recent discovery made by Conoc Ecuador Ltd., operator of Block 16 for a group which consists of O.P.I.C., Maxus, Nomeco, Murphy and Canam, is a good model for future exploration and exploitation of heavy oil in the remote eastern regions of the basin. Amo-1 tested a low-relief anticline (less than 100 ft vertical closure) and encountered 10-20{degree} API oil in five Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs (8,000-10,000 ft depth). Cumulative test production was 1,062 BOPD. Subsequent drilling along the trend resulted in three additional discoveries. The Cretaceous sands were transported from the Brazilian shield by the westward flowing proto-Amazon River and were deposited in fluviodeltaic, tidal, and high-energy marginal marine environments. Air permeabilities are high and geometric mean values approaching several darcies. Porosities average 18-22% in generally well-consolidated sands. The heavy oils are the result of mild biodegradation and/or expulsion from a thermally immature source. Oil-to-oil correlations suggest that all of the basin oils have the same or similar origin, probably marine calcareous shales of the Cretaceous Napo formation. The Block 16 project will provide a major step toward the strategic exploitation of the Oriente basin's heavy oil reserves, when it comes on stream in the early 1990s.

Feb-2008 submitted to Energy Engineering Feb-2008 submitted to Energy Engineering Action-Oriented Benchmarking: Concepts and Tools Evan Mills, Paul Mathew & Mary Ann Piette, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Norman Bourassa & Martha Brook, California Energy Commission ABSTRACT Most energy benchmarking tools provide static feedback on how one building compares to a larger set of loosely similar buildings, without providing information at the end-use level or on what can be done to reduce consumption, cost, or emissions. In this article-Part 1 of a two-part series-we describe an "action-oriented benchmarking" approach, which extends whole-building energy benchmarking to include analysis of system and component energy use metrics and features. Action-oriented benchmarking thereby allows users to generate more meaningful

Orientation dependence of Casimir forces  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Casimir interaction between two objects, or between an object and a plane, depends on their relative orientations. We make these angular dependences explicit by considering prolate or oblate spheroids. The variation with orientation is calculated exactly at asymptotically large distances for the electromagnetic field and at arbitrary separations for a scalar field. For a spheroid in front of a mirror, the leading term is orientation independent, and we find the optimal orientation from computations at higher order.

Biased orientation games  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study biased {\\em orientation games}, in which the board is the complete graph $K_n$, and Maker and Breaker take turns in directing previously undirected edges of $K_n$. At the end of the game, the obtained graph is a tournament. Maker wins if the tournament has some property $\\mathcal P$ and Breaker wins otherwise. We provide bounds on the bias that is required for a Maker's win and for a Breaker's win in three different games. In the first game Maker wins if the obtained tournament has a cycle. The second game is Hamiltonicity, where Maker wins if the obtained tournament contains a Hamilton cycle. Finally, we consider the $H$-creation game, where Maker wins if the obtained tournament has a copy of some fixed graph $H$.

Arbitrary Orientations Of Hamilton Cycles In Oriented Graphs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We use a randomised embedding method to prove that for all \\alpha>0 any sufficiently large oriented graph G with minimum in-degree and out-degree \\delta^+(G),\\delta^-(G)\\geq (3/8+\\alpha)|G| contains every possible orientation of a Hamilton cycle. This confirms a conjecture of H\\"aggkvist and Thomason.

Goal Orientation as Shaping the Firm's Entrepreneurial Orientation and Performance  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Firms’ top decision makers cannot possibly know what decisions to make. Rather, decision makers must interpret their situations and make the best possible decision based upon their interpretation of their situations. In this dissertation, I examine decision-makers’ goal orientations as influencing how they interpret their situations and then respond through making decisions in terms of their firms’ entrepreneurial orientations. I also examine whether these decisions influence firm performance. I surveyed top firm decision makers in the Association of Former Students’ database at Texas A and M University. The hypotheses were tested using a structural equation modeling. Using a sample of 273 firms, I find that decision-makers’ goal orientations shape their firm’s entrepreneurial orientations, which in turn influence firm growth, relative performance, and expected future performance. Possessing a learning goal orientation was found to be positively related to innovativeness, proactiveness, and risk taking. A performance prove goal orientation was positively related to innovativeness, whereas a performance avoid goal orientation was negatively related to innovativeness and risk taking. Only a proactive firm posture was found to be positively related to firm performance. The results for this dissertation provide compelling support for upper echelons theory. Decision-makers’ finer-grained personal attributes are found to shape firm-level outcomes. More specifically, decision-makers’ goal orientations are found to shape the firm’s entrepreneurial orientation and, to some extent, performance. Interestingly, coarse-grained personal attributes captured in demographic proxies and used as control variables in the analyses did not provide consistent support for upper echelons theory. The results suggest that scholars need to take a finer-grained perspective of upper echelons theory. A substantial amount of research has established the link between individuals’ goal orientations and how they interpret and respond to their situations. The research here has extended this relationship to the top decision-making context in firms where individuals face strong situational forces caused by uncertainty, complexity, and dynamism. I hope that this research encourages other scholars to (1) examine more complex models of how decision-makers’ personal attributes influence their entrepreneurial decisions in terms of both recognizing and exploiting opportunities, and (2) examine other finer-grained attributes of top decision makers within a finer-grained framework of the decision-making process.

A position and orientation tracking system presents a laser scanning appaus having two measurement pods, a control station, and a detector array. The measurement pods can be mounted in the dome of a radioactive waste storage silo. Each measurement pod includes dual orthogonal laser scanner subsystems. The first laser scanner subsystem is oriented to emit a first line laser in the pan direction. The second laser scanner is oriented to emit a second line laser in the tilt direction. Both emitted line lasers scan planes across the radioactive waste surface to encounter the detector array mounted on a target robotic vehicle. The angles of incidence of the planes with the detector array are recorded by the control station. Combining measurements describing each of the four planes provides data for a closed form solution of the algebraic transform describing the position and orientation of the target robotic vehicle.

In this paper we study oriented quantum coalgebras which are structures closely related to oriented quantum algebras. We study the relationship between oriented quantum coalgebras and oriented quantum algebras and the relationship between oriented quantum coalgebras and quantum coalgebras. We show that there are regular isotopy invariants of oriented 1-1 tangles and of oriented knots and links associated to oriented and twist oriented quantum coalgebras respectively. There are many parallels between the theory of oriented quantum coalgebras and the theory of quantum coalgebras

Nonlocal actin orientation models select for a unique orientation pattern  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Many models have been developed to study the role of branching actin networks in motility. One important component of those models is the distribution of filament orientations relative to the cell membrane. Two mean-field models previously proposed are generalized and analyzed. In particular, we find that both models uniquely select for a dominant orientation pattern. In the linear case, the pattern is the eigenfunction associated with the principal eigenvalue. In the nonlinear case, we show there exists a unique equilibrium and that the equilibrium is locally stable. Approximate techniques are then used to provide evidence for global stability.

Orientations of two coupled molecules  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Orientation states of two coupled polar molecules controlled by laser pulses are studied theoretically. By varying the period of a series of periodically applied laser pulse, transition from regular to chaotic behavior may occur. Schmidt decomposition is used to measure the degree of entanglement. It is found that the entanglement can be enhanced by increasing the strength of laser pulse.

Revisiting pinors, spinors and orientability  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the relations between pin structures on a non-orientable even-dimensional manifold, with or without boundary, and pin structures on its orientable double cover, requiring the latter to be invariant under sheet-exchange. We show that there is not a simple bijection, but that the natural map induced by pull-back is neither injective nor surjective: we thus find the conditions to recover a full correspondence. We also show how to describe such a correspondence using spinors instead of pinors on the double cover: this is in a certain sense possible, but in a way that contains anyhow an explicit reference to pinors. We then consider the example of surfaces, with detailed computations for the real projective plane, the Klein bottle and the Moebius strip.

Orientation of stationary axial collectors  

SciTech Connect

Attention is drawn to the fact that stationary solar collectors with axial symmetry have a third degree of freedom which must be considered, in addition to their azimuth and tilt angles, if their orientation is to be optimized on an annual or seasonal basis. The authors set up the equations needed to describe collector orientation in terms of all angles, including this extra degree of freedom which they refer to as skewness. Examples of the use of these equations are then given, both for northern and southern latitudes, which illustrate the manner in which skewness may be taken into consideration and highlight the importance of doing this. For the sake of simplicity the illustrative examples treat only the direct beam component of the total insolation intercepted by the collector.

Introduction to autonomy oriented computation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Examples of autonomous multi-entity systems are plentiful, both in the natural and artificial worlds. Many systems have been studied in depth and some models of these have been built in computational systems for problem solving. Central to these computational systems is the notion of autonomy. This article proposes autonomy oriented computation (AOC) as a complementary paradigm for solving hard computational problems and for characterizing the behaviors of a complex system.

Subgraphs of quasi-random oriented graphs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

One cannot guarantee the presence of an oriented four-cycle in an oriented graph $D$ simply by demanding it has many edges, as an acyclic orientation of the complete graph on $n$ vertices has $\\binom{n}{2}$ edges -- the most possible -- but contains no oriented cycle. We show that a simple quasi-randomness condition on the orientation of $D$ does allow one to guarantee the presence of an oriented four-cycle. Significantly our results work even for sparse oriented graphs. Furthermore, we give examples which show that, in a sense, our result is best possible. We also prove a result concerning oriented six-cycles and a more general result in the case $D$ is dense. Finally, we raise a number of questions and conjectures related to these results.

Upper oriented chromatic number of undirected graphs and oriented colorings of product graphs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The oriented chromatic number of an oriented graph $\\vec G$ is the minimum order of an oriented graph $\\vev H$ such that $\\vec G$ admits a homomorphism to $\\vev H$. The oriented chromatic number of an undirected graph $G$ is then the greatest oriented chromatic number of its orientations. In this paper, we introduce the new notion of the upper oriented chromatic number of an undirected graph $G$, defined as the minimum order of an oriented graph $\\vev U$ such that every orientation $\\vec G$ of $G$ admits a homomorphism to $\\vec U$. We give some properties of this parameter, derive some general upper bounds on the ordinary and upper oriented chromatic numbers of Cartesian, strong, direct and lexicographic products of graphs, and consider the particular case of products of paths.

Temporal Variations in Fibril Orientation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We measure variations in orientation of fourteen dynamic fibrils as a function of time in a small isolated plage and nearby network using a 10-min time sequence of H-alpha filtergrams obtained by the Dutch Open Telescope. We found motions with average angular velocities of the order of 1 deg/min suggesting systematic turning from one limit position to another, particularly apparent in the case of fibrils with lifetimes of a few minutes. Shorter fibrils tend to turn faster than longer ones, which we interpret as due to vortex flows in the underlying granulation that twist magnetic fields.

The implications of this result for theories of the formation of clusters and galaxies (particularly the first-ranked members) are discussed.

Object-Oriented Modeling Of Hybrid Systems  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A new methodology for the object--oriented description of models consisting of a mixture of continuous and discrete components is presented. The object--oriented paradigm enables the user to describe such models in a modular fashion that permits the reuse of these models independently of the environment in which they are to be embedded. The paper explains the basic mechanisms needed for object--oriented modeling of hybrid systems by means of language constructs available in the object--oriented modeling language Dymola. It then addresses more advanced concepts such as variable structure models containing e.g. ideal electrical switches, ideal diodes and dry friction.

Using partial sensor information to orient parts  

SciTech Connect

Parts orienting, the process of bringing parts in initially unknown orientations to a goal orientation, is an important aspect of automated assembly. The most common industrial orienting systems are vibratory bowl feeders, which use the shape and mass properties of parts to orient them. Bowl feeders rely on a sequence of mechanical operations and typically do not use sensors. In this paper, the authors describe the use of partial information sensors along with a sequence of pushing operations to eliminate uncertainty in the orientation of parts. The authors characterize the shorter execution lengths of sensor-based plans and show that sensor-based plans are more powerful than sensorless plans in that they can bring a larger class of parts to distinct orientations. The authors characterize the relation among part shape, orientability; and recognizability to identify conditions under which a single plan can orient and recognize multiple part shapes. Although part shape determines the results of the actions and the sensed information, the authors establish that differences in part shape do not always lead to differences in part behavior. The authors show that for any convex polygon, there exists an infinite set of nonsimilar convex polygons that behave identically under linear normal pushes. Furthermore, there exists a infinite set of nonsimilar convex polygons whose behavior cannot be distinguished even with diameter sensing after each push. They authors have implemented several planners and demonstrated generated plans in experiments.

Batch-oriented software appliances  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This paper presents AppPot, a system for creating Linux software appliances. AppPot can be run as a regular batch or grid job and executed in user space, and requires no special virtualization support in the infrastructure. The main design goal of AppPot is to bring the benefits of a virtualization-based IaaS cloud to existing batch-oriented computing infrastructures. In particular, AppPot addresses the application deployment and configuration on large heterogeneous computing infrastructures: users are enabled to prepare their own customized virtual appliance for providing a safe execution environment for their applications. These appliances can then be executed on virtually any computing infrastructure being in a private or public cloud as well as any batch-controlled computing clusters the user may have access to. We give an overview of AppPot and its features, the technology that makes it possible, and report on experiences running it in production use within the Swiss National Grid infrastructure SMSCG.

Orientable embeddings and orientable cycle double covers of projective-planar graphs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In a closed 2-cell embedding of a graph each face is homeomorphic to an open disk and is bounded by a cycle in the graph. The Orientable Strong Embedding Conjecture says that every 2-connected graph has a closed 2-cell embedding in some orientable surface. This implies both the Cycle Double Cover Conjecture and the Strong Embedding Conjecture. In this paper we prove that every 2-connected projective-planar cubic graph has a closed 2-cell embedding in some orientable surface. The three main ingredients of the proof are (1) a surgical method to convert nonorientable embeddings into orientable embeddings; (2) a reduction for 4-cycles for orientable closed 2-cell embeddings, or orientable cycle double covers, of cubic graphs; and (3) a structural result for projective-planar embeddings of cubic graphs. We deduce that every 2-edge-connected projective-planar graph (not necessarily cubic) has an orientable cycle double cover.

Orientation Angles of a Pulsar's Polarization Vector  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A statistical model of the polarization of pulsar radio emission is used to derive the general statistics of a polarization vector's orientation angles. The theoretical distributions are compared with orientation angle histograms computed from single-pulse, polarization observations of PSR B2020+28. The favorable agreement between the theoretical and measured distributions lends support to the underlying assumptions of the statistical model, and demonstrates, like recent work on other pulsars, that the handedness of circular polarization is associated with the radiation's orthogonally polarized modes. Comprehensive directional statistics of the vector's orientation angles are also derived, and are shown to follow the Watson bipolar and Fisher distributions in its limiting forms.

Hydrodynamic orienting of asymmetric microobjects under gravity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It is shown that nonsymmetric microobjects orient while settling under gravity in a viscous fluid. To analyze this process, a simple shape is chosen: a non-deformable `chain'. The chain consists of two straight arms, made of touching solid spheres. In the absence of external torques, the spheres are free to spin along the arms. The motion of the chain is evaluated by solving the Stokes equations with the use of the multipole method. It is demonstrated that the spinning beads speed up sedimentation by a small amount, and increase the orientation rate significantly in comparison to the corresponding rigid chain. It is shown that chains orient towards the V-shaped stable stationary configuration. In contrast, rods and star-shaped microobjects do not rotate. The hydrodynamic orienting is relevant for efficient swimming of non-symmetric microobjects, and for sedimenting suspensions.

Optimal orientation in branched cytoskeletal networks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Actin cytoskeletal protrusions in crawling cells, or lamellipodia, exhibit various morphological properties such as two characteristic peaks in the distribution of filament orientation with respect to the leading edge. To understand these properties, using the dendritic nucleation model as a basis for cytoskeletal restructuring, a kinetic-population model with orientational-dependent branching (birth) and capping (death) is constructed and analyzed. Optimizing for growth yields a relation between the branch angle and filament orientation that explains the two characteristic peaks. The model also exhibits a subdominant population that allows for more accurate modeling of recent measurements of filamentous actin density along the leading edge of lamellipodia in keratocytes. Finally, we explore the relationship between orientational and spatial organization of filamentous actin in lamellipodia and address recent observations of a prevalence of overlapping filaments to branched filaments---a finding that is claimed to be in contradiction with the dendritic nucleation model.

The interplay between electrostatic interactions and orientational correlations is studied for a model system of charged rods positioned on a chain, using Monte Carlo simulation techniques. It is shown that the coupling brings about the notion of {\\em electrostatic frustration}, which in turn results in: (i) a rich variety of novel orientational orderings such as chiral phases, and (ii) an inherently slow dynamics characterized by stretched-exponential behavior in the relaxation functions of the system.

Embedded sensor having an identifiable orientation  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An apparatus and method is described wherein a sensor, such as a mechanical strain sensor, embedded in a fiber core, is "flagged" to identify a preferred orientation of the sensor. The identifying "flag" is a composite material, comprising a plurality of non-woven filaments distributed in a resin matrix, forming a small planar tab. The fiber is first subjected to a stimulus to identify the orientation providing the desired signal response, and then sandwiched between first and second layers of the composite material. The fiber, and therefore, the sensor orientation is thereby captured and fixed in place. The process for achieving the oriented fiber includes, after identifying the fiber orientation, carefully laying the oriented fiber onto the first layer of composite, moderately heating the assembled layer for a short period in order to bring the composite resin to a "tacky" state, heating the second composite layer as the first, and assembling the two layers together such that they merge to form a single consolidated block. The consolidated block achieving a roughly uniform distribution of composite filaments near the embedded fiber such that excess resin is prevented from "pooling" around the periphery of the fiber.

Corn stalk orientation effect on mechanical cutting  

SciTech Connect

Research efforts that increase the efficiency of size reduction of biomass can lead to a significant energy saving. This paper deals with the determination of the effect of sample orientation with respect to cutting element and quantify the possible cutting energy reduction, utilising dry corn stalks as the test material (15%e20% wet basis). To evaluate the mechanical cutting characteristics of corn stalks, a Warnere Bratzler device was modified by replacing its blunt edged cutting element with one having a 30_ single bevel sharp knife edge. Cutting force-deformation characteristics obtained with a universal testing machine were analysed to evaluate the orientation effects at perpendicular (90o), inclined (45o), and parallel (0o) orientations on internodes and nodes for cutting force, energy, ultimate stress, and specific energy of corn stalks. The corn stalks cutting force-displacement characteristics were found to differ with orientation, and internode and node material difference. Overall, the peak failure force, and the total cutting energy of internodes and nodes varied significantly (P < 0.05) with stalk cross-sectional area. The specific energy values (total energy per unit cut area) of dry corn stalk internodes ranged from 11.3 to 23.5 kN m_1, and nodes from 8.6 to 14.0 kN m_1. The parallel orientation (along grain) compared to perpendicular (across grain) produced a significant reduction of the cutting stress and the specific energy to one tenth or better for internodes, and to about one-fifth for nodes.

A dichotomy in radio jet orientations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We examine the relative orientations of radio jets, central dust and stars in low-power (i.e., FR I and FR I/II) radio galaxies. We use the position angles of jet and dust to constrain the three-dimensional angle $\\theta_{\\rm DJ}$ between jet and dust. For galaxies with filamentary dust 'lanes' (which tend to be misaligned with the galaxy major axis) the jet is approximately perpendicular to the dust structure, while for galaxies with elliptical dust distributions (typically aligned with the galaxy major axis) there is a much wider distribution of $\\theta_{\\rm DJ}$. nThe dust ellipses are consistent with being nearly circular thin disks viewed at random viewing angles. The lanes are likely warped, unsettled dust structures. We consider two scenarios to explain the dust/jet orientation dichotomy.

Orientational relaxation in a discotic liquid crystal  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We investigate orientational relaxation of a model discotic liquid crystal, consists of disc-like molecules, by molecular dynamics simulations along two isobars starting from the high temperature isotropic phase. The two isobars have been so chosen that (A) the phase sequence isotropic (I)-nematic (N)-columnar (C) appears upon cooling along one of them and (B) the sequence isotropic (I)-columnar (C) along the other. While the orientational relaxation in the isotropic phase near the I-N phase transition in system (A) shows a power law decay at short to intermediate times, such power law relaxation is not observed in the isotropic phase near the I-C phase boundary in system (B). In order to understand this difference (the existence or the absence of the power law decay), we calculated the the growth of the orientational pair distribution functions (OPDF) near the I-N phase boundary and also near the I-C phase boundary. We find that OPDF shows a marked growth in long range correlation as the I-N phase boundary is approached in the I-N-C system (A), but such a growth is absent in the I-C system, which appears to be consistent with the result that I-N phase transition in the former is weakly first order while the the I-C phase transition in the later is not weak. As the system settles into the nematic phase, the decay of the single-particle second-rank orientational OTCF follows a pattern that is similar to what is observed with calamitic liquid crystals and supercooled molecular liquids.

Nematics, Knots and Non-orientable Surfaces  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Knots and knotted fields enrich physical phenomena ranging from DNA and molecular chemistry to the vortices of fluid flows and textures of ordered media. Liquid crystals provide an ideal setting for exploring such topological phenomena through control of their characteristic defects. The use of colloids in generating defects and knotted configurations in liquid crystals has been demonstrated for spherical and toroidal particles and shows promise for the development of novel photonic devices. Extending this existing work, we describe the full topological implications of colloids representing non-orientable surfaces and use it to construct torus knots and links of type ($p$,2) around multiply-twisted M\\"obius strips.

Task-Oriented Maximally Entangled States  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We introduce the notion of a task-oriented maximally entangled state (TMES). This notion depends on the tasks for which a quantum state is used as the resource. This concept may be more fruitful than that of a general maximally entangled state in the case of a multipartite system. We illustrate this idea by giving an operational definition of maximally entangled states on the basis of communication tasks of teleportation and superdense coding. We also give examples and a procedure to obtain such TMESs for {\\em n}-qubit systems.

Service Oriented Architecture for High Level Applications  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Standalone high level applications often suffer from poor performance and reliability due to lengthy initialization, heavy computation and rapid graphical update. Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is trying to separate the initialization and computation from applications and to distribute such work to various service providers. Heavy computation such as beam tracking will be done periodically on a dedicated server and data will be available to client applications at all time. Industrial standard service architecture can help to improve the performance, reliability and maintainability of the service. Robustness will also be improved by reducing the complexity of individual client applications.

Orientations of very faint galaxies in the Coma cluster  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We have then searched for preferential orientations of faint galaxies in the Coma cluster (down I_Vega~-11.5). By applying a deconvolution method to deep u* and I band images of the Coma cluster, we were able to recover orientations down to faint magnitudes. No preferential orientations are found in more than 95% of the cluster, and the brighter the galaxies, the fewer preferential orientations. The minor axes of late type galaxies are radially oriented along a northeast -southwest direction and are oriented north-south in the western X-ray sub- structures. For early type galaxies, in the western regions showing significant preferential orientations, galaxy major axes are oriented perpendicularly to the north-south direction. In the eastern significant region and close to NGC 4889, galaxy major axes also point toward the 2 cluster dominant galaxies. In the southern significant regions, galaxy planes are tangential with respect to the clustercentric direction, except close to (alpha=194.8, delta=27.65) where the orientation is close to -15deg. Part of the orientations of the minor axes of late type galaxies and of the major axes of early type galaxies can be explained by a tidal torque model applied to cosmological filaments and local merging directions. Another part (close to NGC4889) can be accounted for by collimated infalls. For early type galaxies, the (alpha=194.8, delta=27.65) region shows orientations that probably result from processes involving induced star formation.

Applying Object-Oriented Design to Structured Graphics

Structured graphics is useful for building applications that use a direct manipulation metaphor. Objectoriented languages offer inheritance, encapsulation, and runtime binding of operations to objects. Unfortunately, standard structured graphics packages do not use an object-oriented model, and object-oriented systems do not provide general-purpose structured graphics, relying instead on low-level graphics primitives. An object-oriented approach to structured graphics can give application programmers the benefits of both paradigms. We have

Orientation selection in lamellar phases by oscillatory shears  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In order to address the selection mechanism that is responsible for the unique lamellar orientation observed in block copolymers under oscillatory shears, we use a constitutive law for the dissipative part of the stress tensor that respects the uniaxial symmetry of a lamellar phase. An interface separating two domains oriented parallel and perpendicular to the shear is shown to be hydrodynamically unstable, a situation analogous to the thin layer instability of stratified fluids under shear. The resulting secondary flows break the degeneracy between parallel and perpendicular lamellar orientation, leading to a preferred perpendicular orientation in certain ranges of parameters of the polymer and of the shear.

Orientation-dependent handedness and chiral design  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Chirality occupies a central role in fields ranging from biological self assembly to the design of optical meta-materials. The definition of chirality, as given by lord Kelvin, associates it with the lack of mirror symmetry: the inability to superpose an object on its mirror image. While this definition has guided the classification of chiral objects for over a century, the quantification of handed phenomena based on this definition has proven elusive, if not impossible as manifest in the paradox of chiral connectedness. In this work we put forward a quantification scheme in which the handedness of an object depends on the direction in which it is viewed. While consistent with familiar chiral notions, such as the right hand rule, this framework allows objects to be simultaneously right and left handed. We demonstrate this orientation dependence in three different systems: a biomimetic elastic bilayer, a chiral propeller and optical meta-material and find quantitative agreement with chirality pseudo-tensors whose form we explicitly compute. The use of this approach resolves the existing paradoxes and naturally enables the design of handed meta materials from symmetry principles.

Oriented spray-assisted cooling tower  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Apparatus useful for heat exchange by evaporative cooling when employed in conjunction with a conventional cooling tower. The arrangement includes a header pipe which is used to divert a portion of the water in the cooling tower supply conduit up stream of the cooling tower to a multiplicity of vertical pipes and spray nozzles which are evenly spaced external to the cooling tower so as to produce a uniform spray pattern oriented toward the central axis of the cooling tower and thereby induce an air flow into the cooling tower which is greater than otherwise achieved. By spraying the water to be cooled towards the cooling tower in a region external to the cooling tower in a manner such that the spray falls just short of the cooling tower basin, the spray does not interfere with the operation of the cooling tower, proper, and the-maximum increase in air velocity is achieved just above the cooling tower basin where it is most effective. The sprayed water lands on a concrete or asphalt apron which extends from the header pipe to the cooling tower basin and is gently sloped towards the cooling tower basin such that the sprayed water drains into the basin. By diverting a portion of the water to be cooled to a multiplicity of sprays external to the cooling tower, thermal performance is improved. 4 figs.

PHOTOGRAMMETRIC MODEL ORIENTATION USING LIDAR DATASET  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Today the LIDAR dataset is a powerful alternative to be applied in the optimization of photogrammetric mapping techniques. The complementary nature of LIDAR and photogrammetry allows for the optimal performance of many applications to extract 3D spatial information. For example, photogrammetry image permits accurate borders building extraction. In addition, LIDAR provides a number of accurate 3D points that describe some information about physical building surfaces. These properties show the possibility of combining data from both sensors to arrive at a more robust and complete reconstruction of 3D objects in many applications such as monoplotting, orthophoto generation, surface reconstruction, etc. Photogrammetric procedures need the exterior parameters of images (EOP) for extracting mapping information. Despite of the availability of GPS/INS systems, which greatly assist in direct geo-referencing of the acquired imagery, the majority of commercial available photogrammetric system needs control information to perform photogrammetric mapping techniques. Regarding the accuracy improvement of LIDAR systems in the recent years, LIDAR data is considered a viable supply of photogrammetric control. This paper presents a methodology for using the centroids of building roof as control points in photogrammetric model orientation. The centroid is equivalent to a single control point with 3D coordinates allowing its use in traditional photogrammetric systems. In the experiments performed, the obtained results confirmed the feasibility of the proposed methodology to be applied in geo-referencing of photogrammetric images using LIDAR dataset.

Oriented Matroids -- Combinatorial Structures Underlying Loop Quantum Gravity  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We analyze combinatorial structures which play a central role in determining spectral properties of the volume operator in loop quantum gravity (LQG). These structures encode geometrical information of the embedding of arbitrary valence vertices of a graph in 3-dimensional Riemannian space, and can be represented by sign strings containing relative orientations of embedded edges. We demonstrate that these signature factors are a special representation of the general mathematical concept of an oriented matroid. Moreover, we show that oriented matroids can also be used to describe the topology (connectedness) of directed graphs. Hence the mathematical methods developed for oriented matroids can be applied to the difficult combinatorics of embedded graphs underlying the construction of LQG. As a first application we revisit the analysis of [4-5], and find that enumeration of all possible sign configurations used there is equivalent to enumerating all realizable oriented matroids of rank 3, and thus can be greatly simplified. We find that for 7-valent vertices having no coplanar triples of edge tangents, the smallest non-zero eigenvalue of the volume spectrum does not grow as one increases the maximum spin $\\jmax$ at the vertex, for any orientation of the edge tangents. This indicates that, in contrast to the area operator, considering large $\\jmax$ does not necessarily imply large volume eigenvalues. In addition we give an outlook to possible starting points for rewriting the combinatorics of LQG in terms of oriented matroids.

Object-oriented Programming Laws for Annotated Java Programs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Object-oriented programming laws have been proposed in the context of languages that are not combined with a behavioral interface specification language (BISL). The strong dependence between source-code and interface specifications may cause a number of difficulties when transforming programs. In this paper we introduce a set of programming laws for object-oriented languages like Java combined with the Java Modeling Language (JML). The set of laws deals with object-oriented features taking into account their specifications. Some laws deal only with features of the specification language. These laws constitute a set of small transformations for the development of more elaborate ones like refactorings.

String operations in orientable open-closed string topology  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

To open-closed cobordism surfaces labeled by closed orientable submanifolds, orientable open-closed string topology associates (degree zero) string operations determined up to sign, which depend only on homeomorphism types of surfaces and which satisfy sewing property. In orientable open-closed string topology, we show that most string operations vanish. We describe those open-closed cobordisms with vanishing string operations, and give a short list of open-closed cobordisms with possibly nontrivial string operations. To prove the above vanishing results, we give a systematic discussion of properties of transfer maps.

Proceedings Fourth European Young Researchers Workshop on Service Oriented Computing  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) is an emerging new paradigm for distributed and object-oriented computing by allowing autonomous, platform-independent computational entities (called services) to be built (described, discovered, composed, orchestrated) within and across organizational boundaries. Like no other computing paradigm before, SOC is destined to exert a lasting influence on the business domain, among others (e-commerce, e-government, e-business, e-learning, e-health, etc.). The Young Researchers workshop series on Service-Oriented Computing is meant to be a platform for junior researchers from industry and academics alike. Its core objectives are to exchange information regarding advancements in the state of the art and practice of SOC, as well as to identify emerging research topics and the future trends in this domain. Following the success of the previous three workshops, the 4th European Young Researchers Workshop on Service-Oriented Computing (YR-SOC 2009) introduced two novelties: it was organ...

Extending Tcl for Dynamic Object-Oriented Programming  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Object Tcl is an extension to the Tool Command Language (Tcl) for the management of complicated data types and dynamic object-oriented programming in general. We believe it is a worthy alternative to other object-oriented programming extensions (including [incr Tcl]) because it may be used dynamically, allows for per object specialization, has an economy of design and implementation, and provides a metaobject-based class system. Its design was driven by our VuSystem application needs to create a foundation with powerful abstraction and introspection capabilities, yet we sought to retain both the spirit and benefits of Tcl. This paper presents Object Tcl, emphasizing language design and implementation issues by comparing it with alternative systems. Keywords: object-oriented programming, Tcl, programming languages, [incr Tcl] 1 Introduction Object Tcl is an object-oriented extension to the Tool command Language (Tcl) [12] that we created to meet the programming needs...

Applying Object-Oriented Design to Structured Graphics  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Structured graphics is useful for building applications that use a direct manipulation metaphor. Objectoriented languages offer inheritance, encapsulation, and runtime binding of operations to objects. Unfortunately, standard structured graphics packages do not use an object-oriented model, and object-oriented systems do not provide general-purpose structured graphics, relying instead on low-level graphics primitives. An object-oriented approach to structured graphics can give application programmers the benefits of both paradigms. We have implemented a two-dimensional structured graphics library in C++ that presents an object-oriented model to the programmer. The graphic class defines a general graphical object from which all others are derived. The picture subclass supports hierarchical composition of graphics. Programmers can define new graphical objects either statically by subclassing or dynamically by composing instances of existing classes. We have used both this library and an...

Mechanism of Molecular Orientation by Single-cycle Pulses  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Significant molecular orientation can be achieved by time-symmetric single-cycle pulses of zero area, in the THz region. We show that in spite of the existence of a combined time-space symmetry operation, not only large peak instantaneous orientations but also nonzero time-average orientations over a rotational period can be obtained. We show that this unexpected phenomenon is due to interferences among eigenstates of the time-evolution operator, as was described previously for transport phenomena in quantum ratchets. This mechanism also works for sequences of identical pulses, spanning a rotational period. This fact can be used to obtain a net average molecular orientation regardless of the magnitude of the rotational constant.

An object-oriented implementation of the Xpress Transfer Protocol  

SciTech Connect

Object-oriented design principles map well onto protocol implementations because protocols essentially manipulate two structures - packets and the states of the endpoints. In this paper the authors describe an implementation of the Xpress Transfer Protocol as a user space daemon written in C++. The object-oriented model forces the programmer to properly place functionality and information ownership. The model facilitates porting to various platforms and greatly eases the task of building data delivery services.

The orientation of buildings: a catalogue of the conditioning factors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The livability and comfort of a house is determined by the relation of the house to the family and the house to the site. In consideration of livability and comfort the Architect designs with space, mechanical equipment and building materials as his tools. If there are influences that affect the orientation of these tools, then mastering the conditioning factors of the influences is as important as the ability to integrate mechanical equipment and building materials into space. When the space of the interior and the space of the exterior are a compliment to each other, each contributing to the livability and comfort of the building, then the orientation of the building is complete. The dissimilarity of people yields dissimilarity in buildings; it is this constant variation in buildings plus the constant variation in building sites that requires each orientation problem/\\be considered separately. Since orientation is the relation of the building to the points of the compass, then any factor that influences the relation is an orientation factor. The primary factors, because they are the most obvious and desirable, are Sun, Wind, and View; but the Architect must consider all for complete orientation.

Stability and Orientation of Lamellae in Diblock Copolymer Films  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The dynamics of microphase separation and the orientation of lamellae in diblock copolymers is investigated in terms of a mean-field model. The formation of lamellar structures and their stable states are explored and it is shown that lamellae are stable not only for the period of the structure corresponding to the minimum of the free energy. The range of wavelengths of stable lamellae is determined by a functional approach, introduced with this work, which is in agreement with the results of a linear stability analysis. The effects of the interaction of block copolymers with confining plane boundaries on the lamellae orientation are studied by an extensive analysis of the free energy. By changing the surface property at one boundary, a transition from a preferentially perpendicular to a parallel lamellar orientation with respect to the boundaries is found, which is rather independent of the distance between the boundaries. Computer simulations reveal, that the time scale of the lamellar orientational order dynamics, which is quantitatively characterized in terms of an orientational order parameter and the structure factor, depends significantly on the properties of the confining boundaries as well as on the quench depth.

Network Communication as a Service-Oriented Capability  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

In widely distributed systems generally, and in science-oriented Grids in particular, software, CPU time, storage, etc., are treated as"services" -- they can be allocated and used with service guarantees that allows them to be integrated into systems that perform complex tasks. Network communication is currently not a service -- it is provided, in general, as a"best effort" capability with no guarantees and only statistical predictability. In order for Grids (and most types of systems with widely distributed components) to be successful in performing the sustained, complex tasks of large-scale science -- e.g., the multi-disciplinary simulation of next generation climate modeling and management and analysis of the petabytes of data that will come from the next generation of scientific instrument (which is very soon for the LHC at CERN) -- networks must provide communication capability that is service-oriented: That is it must be configurable, schedulable, predictable, and reliable. In order to accomplish this, the research and education network community is undertaking a strategy that involves changes in network architecture to support multiple classes of service; development and deployment of service-oriented communication services, and; monitoring and reporting in a form that is directly useful to the application-oriented system so that it may adapt to communications failures. In this paper we describe ESnet's approach to each of these -- an approach that is part of an international community effort to have intra-distributed system communication be based on a service-oriented capability.

Streamlining Object-Oriented Software for Deeply Embedded Applications  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Most of today's computer systems are embedded and a substantial amount of them are deeply embedded systems with very limited resources. Object-oriented software is rarely to be found in those systems. In this paper we discuss reasons why currently object orientation is seldom used in this area. We also propose a set of design and implementation techniques based on modern objectoriented methods, which reconcile the reusability and flexibility of object-oriented software with the required efficiency of deeply embedded systems. 1 Introduction Most of today's computer systems are more or less hidden in embedded applications like mobile phones or cars. Even some kitchen aids have their own processors. More and more application areas are "computerized". In many if not most of them only very limited computational power is available. These so called "deeply" embedded systems are a great challenge for today's software producers. In contrast to PCs the various constraints like cost reduction,...

Structure, diffusion and orientational freezing in lithium metasilicate  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report on the dynamic and structural characterization of lithium metasilicate $Li_2SiO_3$, a network forming ionic glass, by means of molecular dynamics simulations. The system is characterized by a network of $SiO_4$ tetrahedra disrupted by $Li$ ions which diffuse through the network. Measures of mean square displacement of $Si$ and $O$ atoms allow us to identify a temperature at which tetrahedra stop moving relative to each other. This temperature $T_c\\approx 1500\\,K$ can be characterized within the framework of mode coupling theory. At a much lower temperature $T_g\\approx 1000\\,K$, a change in the slope of the volume versus temperature data allows to single out the glass transition. We find signatures of both transitions in structural order parameters, related to the orientation of tetrahedra. Going down in temperature we find that, around the mode coupling transition temperature, a set of order parameters which measure the relative orientation of tetrahedra cease to increase and stay constant below $T_c$. Another well known measure of orientational order, the bond orientational order parameter, which in the studied system measures local order within single tetrahedrons, is found to continue growing below $T_c$ until $T_g$, below which it remains constant. Our results allow to relate two characteristic dynamic transitions with corresponding structural transitions, as observed in two different orientational order parameters. Furthermore, the results indicate that the network of thetrahedra continue to relax well below the point where neighboring tetrahedra cannot rearrange relative to each other, and the glass is reached only upon a process of relaxation of atoms which form the thetrahedron, as quantified by the change in the bond orientational order parameters.

Nanoimprint-Induced Molecular Orientation in Semiconducting Polymer Nanostructures  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The morphology and orientation of thin films of the polymer poly-3(hexylthiophene) - important parameters influencing electronic and photovoltaic device performance - have been significantly altered through nanoimprinting with 100 nm spaced grooves. Grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering studies demonstrate the excellent fidelity of the pattern transfer, while wide-angle scattering convincingly shows an imprinting-induced {pi}-{pi} reorientation and polymer backbone alignment along the imprinted grooves. Surprisingly, temperature-dependent scattering measurements indicate that the imprinted induced orientation and alignment remain intact even at temperatures where the imprinted topographical features nearly vanish.

Optical-diffraction method for determining crystal orientation  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

Disclosed is an optical diffraction technique for characterizing the three-dimensional orientation of a crystal sample. An arbitrary surface of the crystal sample is texture etched so as to generate a pseudo-periodic diffraction grating on the surface. A laser light beam is then directed onto the etched surface, and the reflected light forms a farfield diffraction pattern in reflection. Parameters of the diffraction pattern, such as the geometry and angular dispersion of the diffracted beam are then related to grating shape of the etched surface which is in turn related to crystal orientation. This technique may be used for examining polycrystalline silicon for use in solar cells.

The Orientation of the Local Interstellar Magnetic Field  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The orientation of the local interstellar magnetic field introduces asymmetries in the heliosphere that affect the location of heliospheric radio emissions and the streaming direction of ions from the termination shock of the solar wind. We combine observations of radio emissions and energetic particle streaming with extensive 3D MHD computer simulations of magnetic field draping over the heliopause to show that the plane of the local interstellar field is ~ 60-90 degrees from the galactic plane. This suggests that the field orientation in the Local Interstellar Cloud differs from that of a larger scale interstellar magnetic field thought to parallel the galactic plane.

Alignment and orientation in ion/endash/atom collisions  

DOE Green Energy (OSTI)

Recent progress in the theoretical study of alignment and orientation in atom-atom and ion-atom collisions at intermediate energies is reviewed. Recent systematic studies of the alignment and orientation of electronic charge cloud distributions of excited states resulting from such collisions clearly have provided more detailed information about the underlying collision dynamics. However, since accurate determination of these parameters is quite difficult, both theoretically and experimentally, a close collaboration between theory and experiment is necessary for a deeper understanding of the collision dynamics. A more complete approach, where the full density matrix is determined, is also discussed.

Continuous method for manufacturing grain-oriented magnetostrictive bodies  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

The invention comprises a continuous casting and crystallization method for manufacturing grain-oriented magnetostrictive bodies. A magnetostrictive alloy is melted in a crucible having a bottom outlet. The melt is discharged through the bottom of the crucible and deposited in an elongated mold. Heat is removed from the deposited melt through the lower end portion of the mold to progressively solidify the melt. The solid-liquid interface of the melt moves directionally upwardly from the bottom to the top of the mold, to produce the axial grain orientation.

Orienting the Neighborhood: A Subdivision Energy Analysis Tool  

SciTech Connect

In subdivisions, house orientations are largely determined by street layout. The resulting house orientations affect energy consumption (annual and on-peak) for heating and cooling, depending on window area distributions and shading from neighboring houses. House orientations also affect energy production (annual and on-peak) from solar thermal and photovoltaic systems, depending on available roof surfaces. Therefore, house orientations fundamentally influence both energy consumption and production, and an appropriate street layout is a prerequisite for taking full advantage of energy efficiency and renewable energy opportunities. The potential influence of street layout on solar performance is often acknowledged, but solar and energy issues must compete with many other criteria and constraints that influence subdivision street layout. When only general guidelines regarding energy are available, these factors may be ignored or have limited effect. Also, typical guidelines are often not site-specific and do not account for local parameters such as climate and the time value of energy. For energy to be given its due consideration in subdivision design, energy impacts need to be accurately quantified and displayed interactively to facilitate analysis of design alternatives. This paper describes a new computerized Subdivision Energy Analysis Tool being developed to allow users to interactively design subdivision street layouts while receiving feedback about energy impacts based on user-specified building design variants and availability of roof surfaces for photovoltaic and solar water heating systems.

Optical method for the determination of grain orientation in films  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A method for the determination of grain orientation in a film sample is provided comprising the steps of measuring a first transient optical response of the film and determining the contribution to the transient optical response arising from a change in the energy distribution of the electrons in the sample, determining the contribution to the transient optical response arising from a propagating strain pulse within the sample, and determining the contribution to the transient optical response arising from a change in sample temperature of the sample. The grain orientation of the sample may be determined using the contributions to the transient optical response arising from the change in the energy distribution of the electrons, the propagating strain pulse, and the change in sample temperature. Additionally, a method for determination of the thickness of a film sample is provided. The grain orientation of the sample is first determined. The grain orientation, together with the velocity of sound and a propagation time of a strain pulse through the sample are then used to determine the thickness of the film sample.

The Spatial Orientation of Planetary Nebulae Within the Milky Way  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We analyze the spatial orientation of a homogenous sample of 440 elongated Planetary Nebulae (PNe) in order to determine the orientation of their apparent major axis respect to the Milky Way plane. We present some important geometrical and statistical considerations that have been overlooked by the previous works on the subject. The global distribution of galactic position angles (GPA) of PNe is quantitatively not very different from a random distribution of orientations in the Galaxy. Nevertheless we find that there is at least one region on the sky, toward the galactic center, where a weak correlation may exist between the orientation of the major axis of some PNe and the Galactic equator, with an excess of axes with GPA$\\sim 100^{\\circ}$. Therefore, we confirm that ``extrinsic'' phenomena (i.e., global galactic magnetic fields, shell compression from motion relative to the Interstellar Medium) do not determine the morphology of PNe on most of the sky, with a possible exception towards the galactic center.

Optimal slit orientation for long multi-object spectroscopic exposures  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Historically, long-slit spectroscopic observations were carried out using the parallactic angle for the slit orientation if slit loss was an important consideration (either to maximize the signal-to-noise or to do spectrophotometry). This requires periodic realignment of the slit position angle as the parallactic angle changes. This is not possible for multi-slit observations where one slit position angle must be chosen for the entire exposure. Common wisdom suggests using the parallactic angle at the meridian (HA=0). In this paper, I examine what the best strategy is for long, multi-slit exposures. I find that in extreme cases (very long exposure time) the best choice is to orient the slit \\emph{perpendicular} to the parallactic angle at the meridian. There are two effects to consider: the increasing dispersion with increasing airmass and the changing angle between the parallactic angle and the slit. In the case of \\emph{traditional} slit orientation, the two effects amplify each other, thus rendering a significant fraction of the observation useless. Using the perpendicular orientation, the two processes work against each other, thus most of the observation remains useful. I will use, as an example, our 8 hour Lockman Hole observations using the Keck telescope, but generic methods are given to evaluate a particular observation. I also make the tools available to the community.

Preferential orientation of Te precipitates in melt-grown CZT  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Cadmium zinc telluride (Cd1-xZnxTe or CZT) has proved to be a useful material for semiconductor gamma-ray spectrometers and other electro-optic devices. It is often grown Te-rich to optimize its electrical characteristics, but this off-stoichiometric growth leads to the formation of semimetallic Te precipitates in the semiconducting host crystal. These precipitates can impair device performance and their formation needs to be inhibited, if possible, during growth. Characterization of melt-grown CZT has shown that Te precipitates are often faceted. In this study, characterization of several particles of different shapes revealed that most of the Te precipitates were preferentially oriented with the {101}CZT||{-12-10}Te . A secondary orientation relationship was also observed as {11-1}CZT||{01-11}Te for one of the {111}CZT family of planes. One of the particles exhibited {110}CZT||{01-10}Te and {001}CZT||{0001}Te . Precipitates were often found on {111}CZT twin boundaries and, in these cases, it was possible to assign specific orientations with respect to the twin plane. The expected orientation of the {0001}-plane of Te aligned with the {111}-plane of CZT was not observed even though a good lattice match is predicted in ab initio models. Observations of strained and polycrystalline Te precipitates are also discussed with relevance to the ab initio model and to impacts on electronic properties.

Object-Oriented Implementation for NAS Parallel Benchmarks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

ion deals with the external behavior of an object while encapsulation helps manage the system complexity by hiding the internal details of the object implementation. Thus, the abstraction and encapsulation complement each other in dealing with the complexity. Often, a set of abstractions in real life systems forms a hierarchy. Inheritance organizes the classes in a hierarchical structure, which gives a greater level of abstraction to the problem. Inheritance coupled with dynamic binding results in polymorphism, where one name can be used to denote different items of the classes in a hierarchy. This very organized approach of the object--oriented paradigm helps the developer in conquering the complexity of highly complex scientific applications (Booch 1991). The need for proper abstractions is more crucial for parallel programming than sequential programming (Grimshaw 1993). The higher 47 level abstractions provided by the object--oriented paradigm can make the specific architectural ...

We obtain possibly valuable information about the orientation-tuning of phase diagram of superdense nuclear matter at high fermion as well as boson number density but low temperature, which is not accessible to relativistic heavy ion collision experiments. Our results resemble those proposed before by Alford. Possible observational signatures associated with the theoretically proposed states of matter inside compact stars are discussed as well.

Orientation-Dependent Entanglement Lifetime in a Squeezed Atomic Clock  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study experimentally the lifetime of a special class of entangled states in an atomic clock, squeezed spin states. In the presence of anisotropic noise, their lifetime is strongly dependent on squeezing orientation. We measure the Allan deviation spectrum of a clock operated with a phase-squeezed input state. For integration times up to 50 s the squeezed clock achieves a given precision 2.8(3) times faster than a clock operating at the standard quantum limit.

Orientation dynamics of weakly Brownian particles in periodic viscous flows  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Evolution equations for the orientation distribution of axisymmetric particles in periodic flows are derived in the regime of small but non-zero Brownian rotations. The equations are based on a multiple time scale approach that allows fast computation of the relaxation processes leading to statistical equilibrium. The approach has been applied to the calculation of the effective viscosity of a thin disk suspension in gravity waves.

Structure and Orientational Texture of Self-Organizing Lipid Bilayers  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The structure of single supported dipalmitoyl-phosphatidylcholine bilayers prepared by vesicle fusion or Langmuir-Blodgett-Schaeffer (LBS) deposition techniques was characterized by x-ray reflectivity and grazing incidence diffraction in bulk water. LBS bilayers display symmetric leaflets similar to monolayer structures, while vesicle fusion yields more inhomogeneous bilayers. Diffraction establishes that lipids are always coupled across the bilayer even when leaflets are deposited independently and suggests the existence of orientational texture.

Proton Channel Orientation in Block-Copolymer Electrolyte Membranes  

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

Proton Channel Orientation in Proton Channel Orientation in Block-Copolymer Electrolyte Membranes Proton Channel Orientation in Block-Copolymer Electrolyte Membranes Print Wednesday, 27 January 2010 00:00 Fuel cells have the potential to provide power for a wide variety of applications ranging from electronic devices to transportation vehicles. Cells operating with H2 and air as inputs and electric power and water as the only outputs are of particular interest because of their ability to produce power without degrading the environment. Polymer electrolyte membranes (PEMs), with hydrophilic, proton-conducting channels embedded in a structurally sound hydrophobic matrix, play a central role in the operation of polymer electrolyte fuel cells. PEMs are humidified by contact with air (the presence of water in PEMs is essential for proton transport). In addition, PEMs must transport protons to catalyst sites, which are typically crystalline solids such as platinum. The arrangement of the hydrophilic domains in the vicinity of both air and solid substrates is thus crucial. A University of California, Berkeley, and Berkeley Lab group has now provided the first set of data on morphology of PEMs at interfaces by a combination of x-ray scattering and microscopy.

FEA Simulations of Magnets with Grain Oriented Steel  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

One of the potential successors of the Large Hadron Collider is a Muon Col- lider. Muons are short-lived particles, which therefore require fast acceleration. One potential avenue is a very fast cycling cyclotron, where the bending is sup- plied by a combination of fixed-field superconducting magnets and fast ramping normal conducting iron-cored coils. Due to the high ramping rate (around 1 kHz) eddy current and hysteresis losses are a concern. One way to overcome these is by using grain-oriented soft-iron, which promises superior magnetic properties in the direction of the grains. This note summarizes efforts to include the anisotropic material properties of grain-oriented steel in finite element analysis to predict the behaviour of the dipole magnets for this accelerator. It was found that including anisotropic material properties has a detrimental effect on model convergence. During this study it was not possible to include grain oriented steel with an accuracy necessary to study the field quality of a dipole magnet.

A Methodology to Evaluate Agent Oriented Software Engineering Techniques  

SciTech Connect

Systems using software agents (or multi-agent systems, MAS) are becoming more popular within the development mainstream because, as the name suggests, an agent aims to handle tasks autonomously with intelligence. To benefit from autonomous control and reduced running costs, system functions are performed automatically. Agent-oriented considerations are being steadily accepted into the various software design paradigms. Agents may work alone, but most commonly, they cooperate toward achieving some application goal(s). MAS's are components in systems that are viewed as many individuals living in a society working together. From a SE perspective, solving a problem should encompass problem realization, requirements analysis, architecture design and implementation. These steps should be implemented within a life-cycle process including testing, verification, and reengineering to proving the built system is sound. In this paper, we explore the various applications of agent-based systems categorized into different application domains. A baseline is developed herein to help us focus on the core of agent concepts throughout the comparative study and to investigate both the object-oriented and agent-oriented techniques that are available for constructing agent-based systems. In each respect, we address the conceptual background associated with these methodologies and how available tools can be applied within specific domains.

Transition between mechanisms of laser-induced field-free molecular orientation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The transition between two distinct mechanisms for the laser-induced field-free orientation of CO molecules is observed via measurements of orientation revival times and subsequent comparison to theoretical calculations. In the first mechanism, which we find responsible for the orientation of CO up to peak intensities of 8 x 10^13 W/cm^2, the molecules are impulsively oriented through the hyperpolarizability interaction. At higher intensities, asymmetric depletion through orientation-selective ionization is the dominant orienting mechanism. In addition to the clear identification of the two regimes of orientation, we propose that careful measurements of the onset of the orientation depletion mechanism as a function of the laser intensity will provide a relatively simple route to calibrate absolute rates of non-perturbative strong-field molecular ionization.

Orientational order in concentrated suspensions of spherical microswimmers  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We use numerical simulations to probe the dynamics of concentrated suspensions of spherical microswimmers interacting hydrodynamically. Previous work in the dilute limit predicted orientational instabilities of aligned suspensions for both pusher and puller swimmers, which we confirm computationally. Unlike previous work, we show that isotropic suspensions of spherical swimmers are also always unstable. Both types of initial conditions develop long-time polar order, of a nature which depends on the hydrodynamic signature of the swimmer but very weakly on the volume fraction up to very high volume fractions.

We show that high conversion efficiency can be achieved, and that the shape and wave-front of the amplified output signal are robust with respect to amplitude and phase distortions of the input pump.

We prove that every rank one surface in these four manifolds is marginally trapped. In the Euclidean case we show that Lagrangian rotationally symmetric sections are marginally trapped and construct an explicit family of marginally trapped Lagrangian tori. In the hyperbolic case we explore the relationship between marginally trapped and Weingarten surfaces, and construct examples of marginally trapped surfaces with various properties.

Sensor orientation for high-resolution satellite imagery  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

As high-resolution satellite imagery (HRSI) attracts usage in a broader range of mapping and GIS applications, so the demand for higher 3D accuracy increases. One of the notable recent innovations in sensor orientation modelling for HRSI has been bias compensated RPC bundle adjustment, which has shown that geopositioning to high accuracy can be achieved with minimal ground control; indeed, only one control point may be required. Bias-compensated RPCs and related issues are further examined in this paper, with attention being paid to the impact of terrain height variation and the issue of scanning mode. Image scanning characteristics can significantly influence metric performance, with the effect being more pronounced for HRSI sensors that dynamically vary their orientation during scene capture. Through experimental testing with IKONOS and QuickBird stereo imagery, the authors demonstrate that bias-corrected RPCs are capable of yielding sub-pixel geopositioning from base-level imagery products. Thus, bias-compensated RPCs are not only favourable in regard to optimising accuracy capability; they also offer cost advantages. 1.

Imaging Collagen Orientation Using Polarization-Modulated Second Harmonic Generation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We use polarization-modulated second harmonic generation to image fiber orientation in collagen tissues, with an axial resolution of about 10 {micro}m and a transverse resolution of up to 1 {micro}m. A linearly polarized ultra-short pulse (200 fs) Ti:Sapphire laser beam is modulated using an electro-optic modulator and quarter-wave plate combination and focused onto a translation stage mounted sample using a microscope objective. The generated second harmonic light is collected using a photomultiplier tube and demodulated using phase sensitive detection to obtain signal intensity and fiber orientation information. In order to obtain second harmonic generation images of different types of collagen organization, we analyze several different tissues, including rat-tail tendon, mouse aorta, mouse fibrotic liver, and porcine skin. We can use our technique to image fibrotic tissue in histological sections of damaged liver and to identify burned tissue in porcine skin to a depth of a few hundred microns. Polarization-modulated second harmonic generation potentially could be a useful clinical technique for diagnosing collagen related disease or damage, especially in the skin.

Elliptic flow orientation, saturation and low $p_t$ behavior  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider general model with factorization between macroscopic flow and matter decay distribution. We show universality of $p_t^2$ behavior of elliptic flow at small $p_t$ for identified final particles in the symmetric nucleus collision. At high $p_t$ we compare non-relativistic and relativistic models for boosted decay distribution. In the relativistic models with distribution having power-like tail we show existence of elliptic flow saturation. This means that the elliptic flow value $v_2$ tend to constant at high $p_t$. We discuss the importance of determination of elliptic flow orientation which can help us to compare different models. For example, we introduce potential expansion model which can reproduce azimuthal asymmetry but based on the assumption that there are only cold strong forces and no thermalization. This model show opposite sign of elliptic flow orientation in comparison with thermal model. We also show that at small $p_t$ sign of elliptic flow can change due to sign of second derivative of decay distribution. This fact tell us that we must more carefully link elliptic flow sign and properties of the model.

Geological model for oil gravity variations in Oriente Basin, Ecuador  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Oriente basin is one of the major productive Subandean basins. Most of the fields produce 29/sup 0/-33/sup 0/ API paraffinic oils, but oils have been discovered with gravities ranging from 10/sup 0/to 35/sup 0/ API. All the oils have been recovered from multiple middle to Late Cretaceous sandstone reservoirs (Hollin and Napo Formations). Wells display a variety of oil gravities by reservoir. The origin of the Oriente oils is problematical and controversial, but structural, geochemical, and well evidence suggest a vast oil kitchen west of the present Andean foothills that was mature for oil generation by at least early Tertiary. Oil analyses indicate a single family of oils is present. Oil gravity variations can be explained systematically in terms of the various alteration processes suffered by the oil in each reservoir. Intermittent early Andean uplift (latest Cretaceous to Mid-Eocene) resulted in biodegradation and water-washing of oils, particularly in the uppermost Napo reservoirs. The main Andean orogeny (Pliocene) uplifted the Hollin reservoir to outcrop in the west, and tilted the basin down to the south. This movement resulted in water washing or flushing of the Hollin aquifer and a phase of northward remigration of oil. Late Andean structures postdated primary oil migration. Almost all structures displaying growth during the Late Cretaceous to early Eocene have been oil bearing, but some, particularly those located on the present-day basin flanks, were later severely biodegraded or breached.

The orientation of galaxy dark matter haloes around cosmic voids  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Using the Millennium N-body simulation we explore how the shape and angular momentum of galaxy dark matter haloes surrounding the largest cosmological voids are oriented. We find that the major and intermediate axes of the haloes tend to lie parallel to the surface of the voids, whereas the minor axis points preferentially in the radial direction. We have quantified the strength of these alignments at different radial distances from the void centres. The effect of these orientations is still detected at distances as large as 2.2 R_void from the void centre. Taking a subsample of haloes expected to contain disc-dominated galaxies at their centres we detect, at the 99.9% confidence level, a signal that the angular momentum of those haloes tends to lie parallel to the surface of the voids. Contrary to the alignments of the inertia axes, this signal is only detected in shells at the void surface (1

The shapes, orientation, and alignment of Galactic dark matter subhalos  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a study of the shapes, orientations, and alignments of Galactic dark matter subhalos in the ``Via Lactea'' simulation of a Milky Way-size LCDM host halo. Whereas isolated dark matter halos tend to be prolate, subhalos are predominantly triaxial. Overall subhalos are more spherical than the host halo, with minor to major and intermediate to major axis ratios of 0.68 and 0.83, respectively. Like isolated halos, subhalos tend to be less spherical in their central regions. The principal axis ratios are independent of subhalo mass, when the shapes are measured within a physical scale like r_Vmax, the radius of the peak of the circular velocity curve. Subhalos tend to be slightly more spherical closer to the host halo center. The spatial distribution of the subhalos traces the prolate shape of the host halo when they are selected by the largest V_max they ever had, i.e. before they experienced strong tidal mass loss. The subhalos' orientation is not random: the major axis tends to align with the direction towards the host halo center. This alignment disappears for halos beyond 3 r_200 and is more pronounced when the shapes are measured in the outer regions of the subhalos. The radial alignment is preserved during a subhalo's orbit and they become elongated during pericenter passage, indicating that the alignment is likely caused by the host halo's tidal forces. These tidal interactions with the host halo act to make subhalos rounder over time.

Spin orientation of supermassive black holes in active galaxies  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Accretion of gas onto a central supermassive black hole is generally accepted to be the source of the emitted energy in active galactic nuclei.The broad emission lines we observe in their optical spectra are probably formed in the wind of an accretion disk at distances of light days to light years from the central black hole. The variable fraction of the emission lines originates at typical distances of only 1 to 50 light days from the central supermassive black hole. We derived a central black hole mass of M_orbital = 1.8 +/-0.4 x 10^7 M_sun in the Seyfert galaxy Mrk110 assuming the broad emission lines are generated in gas clouds orbiting within an accretion disk. This figure depends on the inclination angle of the accretion disk. Here we report on the detection of gravitational redshifted emission in the variable fraction of the broad emission lines. We derive a central black hole mass of M_grav = 14.0 +/-3.0 x 10^7 M_sun. These measurements are independent on the orientation of the accretion disk. The comparison of both black hole mass estimates allows to determine the projection of the central accretion disk angle i to 21 +/-5 deg. in Mrk110 and therefore the orientation of the spin axis of the central black hole.

The Orientation of the Eta Carinae Binary System  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We examine a variety of observations that shed light on the orientation of the semi-major axis of the Eta Carinae massive binary system. Under several assumptions we study the following observations: The Doppler shifts of some He I P-Cygni lines that is attributed to the secondary's wind, of one Fe II line that is attributed to the primary's wind, and of the Paschen emission lines which are attributed to the shocked primary's wind, are computed in our model and compared with observations. We compute the hydrogen column density toward the binary system in our model, and find a good agreement with that deduced from X-ray observations. We calculate the ionization of surrounding gas blobs by the radiation of the hotter secondary star, and compare with observations of a highly excited [Ar III] narrow line. We find that all of these support an orientation where for most of the time the secondary - the hotter less massive star - is behind the primary star. The secondary comes closer to the observer only for a short time near periastron passage, in its highly eccentric (e~0.9) orbit. Further supporting arguments are also listed, followed by discussion of some open and complicated issues.

Thrust stand for vertically oriented electric propulsion performance evaluation  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

A variation of a hanging pendulum thrust stand capable of measuring the performance of an electric thruster operating in the vertical orientation is presented. The vertical orientation of the thruster dictates that the thruster must be horizontally offset from the pendulum pivot arm, necessitating the use of a counterweight system to provide a neutrally stable system. Motion of the pendulum arm is transferred through a balance mechanism to a secondary arm on which deflection is measured. A noncontact light-based transducer is used to measure displacement of the secondary beam. The members experience very little friction, rotating on twisting torsional pivots with oscillatory motion attenuated by a passive, eddy-current damper. Displacement is calibrated using an in situ thrust calibration system. Thermal management and self-leveling systems are incorporated to mitigate thermal and mechanical drifts. Gravitational force and torsional spring constants associated with flexure pivots provide restoring moments. An analysis of the design indicates that the thrust measurement range spans roughly four decades, with the stand capable of measuring thrust up to 12 N for a 200 kg thruster and up to approximately 800 mN for a 10 kg thruster. Data obtained from calibration tests performed using a 26.8 lbm simulated thruster indicated a resolution of 1 mN on 100 mN level thrusts, while those tests conducted on a 200 lbm thruster yielded a resolution of roughly 2.5 mN at thrust levels of 0.5 N and greater.

Janus fluid with fixed patch orientations: theory and simulations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study thermophysical properties of a Janus fluid with constrained orientations, using analytical techniques and numerical simulations. The Janus character is modeled by means of a Kern-Frenkel potential where each sphere has one hemisphere of square-well and the other of hard-sphere character. The orientational constraint is enforced by assuming that each hemisphere can only point either North or South with equal probability. The analytical approach hinges on a mapping of the above Janus fluid onto a binary mixture interacting via a "quasi" isotropic potential. The anisotropic nature of the original Kern-Frenkel potential is reflected by the asymmetry in the interactions occurring between the unlike components of the mixture. A rational-function approximation extending the corresponding symmetric case is obtained in the sticky limit, where the square-well becomes infinitely narrow and deep, and allows a fully analytical approach. Notwithstanding the rather drastic approximations in the analytical theory, this is shown to provide a rather precise estimate of the structural and thermodynamical properties of the original Janus fluid.

Integrating implicit answers with object-oriented queries  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Queries in object-oriented datab;Lqcs are formulated against a class and retrieve instnnccls of the class sat,is-fying a certain predicate on the att,riblltes of the class. The presence of a class hierarchy, an integral part of any object-oriented data model, allows answers to be expressed implicitly in terms of classes and instances. This enables answers to be provided at different levels of abstraction. Shum and Muntz [SM88] presented a way of providing implicit expressions based on a taxonomy defined over the database. The algorithm presented in [SM88] is optimal in the length of the answer but the clarity of the answer is often poor. In this paper, the fo-cus is on coherent answers: implicit answers that are not necessarily optimal in the number of terms but are easy to comprehend. We show that a uniqlle coherent answer can be obtained efficiently in a top down nlanncr. Since the objective is to provide cohcrcnt, answers, and user queries are formulated by means of query operators to access the database, the standard query operators are redefined to obtain and manipulate coherent answers. Coherent answers are useful in coping with information complexity as they allow answers to be represented ab-stractly and are also a useful rctprescntation tool for complex information systems. 1

Molecular orientation entanglement and temporal Bell-type inequalities  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We detail and extend the results of [Milman {\\it et al.}, Phys. Rev. Lett. {\\bf 99}, 130405 (2007)] on Bell-type inequalities based on correlations between measurements of continuous observables performed on trapped molecular systems. We show that for some observables with a continuous spectrum which is bounded, one is able to construct non-locality tests sharing common properties with those for two-level systems. The specific observable studied here is molecular spatial orientation, and it can be experimentally measured for single molecules, as required in our protocol. We also provide some useful general properties of the derived inequalities and study their robustness to noise. Finally, we detail possible experimental scenarii and analyze the role played by different experimental parameters.

Orientation Waves in a Director Field With Rotational Inertia  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the propagation of orientation waves in a director field with rotational inertia and potential energy given by the Oseen-Frank energy functional from the continuum theory of nematic liquid crystals. There are two types of waves, which we call splay and twist waves. Weakly nonlinear splay waves are described by the quadratically nonlinear Hunter-Saxton equation. Here, we show that weakly nonlinear twist waves are described by a new cubically nonlinear, completely integrable asymptotic equation. This equation provides a surprising representation of the Hunter-Saxton equation as an advection equation. There is an analogous representation of the Camassa-Holm equation. We use the asymptotic equation to analyze a one-dimensional initial value problem for the director-field equations with twist-wave initial data.

Jassologie : Une vision originale sur les cartes orientables  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Jassology is a global theory on orientable maps which results from artistic experiments. The objective of this article is to define and describe the essential tools of Jassologic process, wich consists in associating a word, called Jassologic Word, to a planar trivalent rooted map. The original method is based on breaking down a map into layers of cells called "Jasses", which means "layers" in Provence. We also describe in details the set of Jassologic Words, whose alphabet is composed of 16 specified caracters (Catherine Mouet's caracters). And we explain how to construct a planar trivalent rooted map from any Jassologic Word. We obtain a bijection between Jassologic Words and the equivalence classes of planar trivalent rooted maps. In particular, two planar trivalent rooted maps are equivalent if and only if their correspondant Jassologic Words are the same. From a computer science point of view, Jassologic process is an algorithm which doesn't use any handling of images.

Object-oriented approach to software development for LHC experiments  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A proposal to study the viability of the Object Oriented (OO) approach for developing the code for LHC experiments. The authors will learn the key issues of this approach: OO analysis and design. Several methodologies will be studied to select the most appropiate for the High Energy Physics case. Some Computer Aided Software Engineering tools and implementation languages will be evaluated. These studies will be carried out with various well-defined prototypes, some of which have been defined in a preceding study and some of which will be defined in the course of this R&D project. It is also proposed to study how the OO approach enhances a different, and hopefully better, project management. Management tools will be tried and professional training will be organized.

The tidal strain fracture orientation technique is a passive method which has no depth limitation. The orientation of either natural or hydraulically stimulated fractures can be measured using either new or old static observation wells. Estimates for total compressibility and areal interconnected porosity can also be developed for reservoirs with matrix permeability using a combination of tidal and barometric strain analysis.

Geochemical interpretation of Kings Mountain, North Carolina, orientation area  

SciTech Connect

An orientation study has been made of uranium occurrences in the area of Kings Mountain, North Carolina. This is one of the orientation studies of known uranium occurrences that are being conducted in several geologic provinces and under various climatic (weathering) conditions to provide the technical basis for design and interpretation of NURE geochemical reconnaissance programs. The Kings Mountain area was chosen for study primarily because of the reported presence of high-uranium monazite. This 750-mi/sup 2/ area is in the deeply weathered southern Appalachian Piedmont and spans portions of the Inner Piedmont, Kings Mountain, and Charlotte geologic belts. Uranium concentration maps for ground and surface water samples clearly outline the outcrop area of the Cherryville Quartz Monzonite with highs up to 10 ppb uranium near the reported uraninite. Several surface water samples appear to be anomalous because of trace industrial contamination. Uranium concentration maps for -100 to +200 mesh stream sediments indicate the area of monazite abundance. Several samples with >100 ppM uranium content appear to be high in uranium-rich resistate minerals. When the uranium content of sediment samples is ratioed to the sum of Hf, Dy, and Th, the anomaly pattern shifts to coincide with uranium highs in ground and surface water samples. False anomalies from concentrations of monazite (Ce,ThPO/sub 4/), xenotime (Y,DyPO/sub 4/), and zircon (Zr,HfSiO/sub 4/) in stream sediment samples can thus be eliminated. Residual anomalies should be related to unusual uranium enrichment of these common minerals or to the presence of an uncommon uranium-rich mineral. Tantalum, beryllium, and tin in stream sediments correspond to high concentrations of uranium in stream and ground water but not to uranium in sediments. In an initial reconnaissance, several media should be sampled, and it is essential to correct uranium in sediments for the sample mineralogy.

Localized orientational order chaperons the nucleation of Rotator phases in hard polyhedral particles  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The nucleation kinetics of the rotator phase in hard cuboctahedra, truncated octahedra, and rhombic dodecahedra is simulated via a combination of Forward Flux Sampling and Umbrella Sampling. For comparable degree of supersaturation, the polyhedra are found to have significantly lower free-energy barriers and faster nucleation rates than hard spheres. This difference primarily stems from localized orientational ordering, which steers polyhedral particles to pack more efficiently. Orientational order hence fosters here the growth of orientationally disordered nuclei.

Community-Oriented Models and Applications for the Social Web  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The past few years have seen the rapid rise of all things "social" on the web from the growth of online social networks like Facebook, to user-contributed content sites like Flickr and YouTube, to social bookmarking services like Delicious, among many others. Whereas traditional approaches to organizing and accessing the web’s massive amount of information have focused on content-based and link-based approaches, these social systems offer rich opportunities for user-based and community-based exploration and analysis of the web by building on the unprecedented access to the interests and perspectives of millions of users. We focus here on the challenge of modeling and mining social bookmarking systems, in which resources are enriched by large-scale socially generated metadata (“tags”) and contextualized by the user communities that are associated with the resources. Our hypothesis is that an underlying social collective intelligence is embedded in the uncoordinated actions of users on social bookmarking services, and that this social collective intelligence can be leveraged for enhanced web-based information discovery and knowledge sharing. Concretely, we posit the existence of underlying implicit communities in these social bookmarking systems that drive the social bookmarking process which can provide a foundation for community-based organization of web resources. To that end, we make three contributions: • First, we propose a pair of novel probabilistic generative models for describing and modeling community-oriented social bookmarking. We show how these models enable effective extraction of meaningful communities over large real world social bookmarking services. • Second, we develop two frameworks for community-based web information browsing and search that are based on these community-oriented social bookmarking models. We show how both achieve improved discovery and exploration of the social web. • Third, we introduce a community evolution framework for studying and analyzing social bookmarking communities over time. We explore the temporal dimension of social bookmarking and explore the dynamics of community formation, evolution, and dissolution. By uncovering implicit communities, putting them to use in an application scenario (search and browsing), and analyzing them over time, this dissertation provides a foundation for the study of how social knowledge networks are self-organized, a deeper understanding and appreciation of the factors impacting collective intelligence, and the creation of new information access algorithms for leveraging these communities.

Standardization of transportation classes for object-oriented deployment simulations.  

SciTech Connect

Many recent efforts to integrate transportation and deployment simulations, although beneficial, have lacked a feature vital for seamless integration: a common data class representation. It is an objective of the Department of Defense (DoD) to standardize all classes used in object-oriented deployment simulations by developing a standard class attribute representation and behavior for all deployment simulations that rely on an underlying class representation. The Extensive Hierarchy and Object Representation for Transportation Simulations (EXHORT) is a collection of three hierarchies that together will constitute a standard and consistent class attribute representation and behavior that could be used directly by a large set of deployment simulations. The first hierarchy is the Transportation Class Hierarchy (TCH), which describes a significant portion of the defense transportation system; the other two deal with infrastructure and resource classes. EXHORT will allow deployment simulations to use the same set of underlying class data, ensure transparent exchanges, reduce the effort needed to integrate simulations, and permit a detailed analysis of the defense transportation system. This paper describes EXHORT's first hierarchy, the TCH, and provides a rationale for why it is a helpful tool for modeling major portions of the defense transportation system.

Comparison of CDMS [100] and [111] Oriented Germanium Detectors  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) utilizes large mass, 3-inch diameter x 1-inch thick target masses as particle detectors. The target is instrumented with both phonon and ionization sensors and comparison of energy in each channel provides event-by-event classification of electron and nuclear recoils. Fiducial volume is determined by the ability to obtain good phonon and ionization signal at a particular location. Due to electronic band structure in germanium, electron mass is described by an anisotropic tensor with heavy mass aligned along the symmetry axis defined by the [111] Miller index (L valley), resulting in large lateral component to the transport. The spatial distribution of electrons varies significantly for detectors which have their longitudinal axis orientations described by either the [100] or [111] Miller indices. Electric fields with large fringing component at high detector radius also affect the spatial distribution of electrons and holes. Both effects are studied in a 3 dimensional Monte Carlo and the impact on fiducial volume is discussed.

Cautionary aphorisms for customer-oriented system development  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Of the three substantive two-word clusters in the title of this note the least important is system development. Although people who attend conferences like this may be interested in system development, few other people are. Customers, in particular, are much more interested in system use, system availability, and system effectiveness, than in system development. Because it is the customers who keep one in business, it therefore behooves one to develop some techniques to keep use, availability, and effectiveness in mind--in other words, to develop a customer orientation. This note illustrates one such technique: the distillation of applicable wisdom concerning people, systems, and the relationships between them into statements made memorable by their wit, brevity, and pungency. In this session the author hopes to start one on the way to one`s own collection of useful thoughts. It should be noted that the preparation of such a collection serves as a working demonstration of the value of re-use as a productivity principle: few of these statements are original with him, and many had origins in other applications. He considers in turn methodology and procedure, design, schedules, measurement, documentation, and quality.

Matching collector's azimuthal orientation and energy demand profile for thermosyphonic systems  

SciTech Connect

When a load profile is given, a thermosyphonic solar water heater's collector's azimuthal orientation should be considered as a parameter for maximizing the system's performance. This is demonstrated by simulating such a system with various azimuthal collectors orientation subjected to a single fixed or a daily routine load during the day. The results indicate that the system performance, which is measured here by the average (or mixed-cup) temperature of the withdrawn load, could be improved appreciably by a proper match between the collector's azimuthal orientation and the specifics of the load profiles.

Tracking the dynamics of translation and absolute orientation of a sphere in a turbulent flow  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We study the 6-dimensional dynamics -- position and orientation -- of a large sphere advected by a turbulent flow. The movement of the sphere is recorded with 2 high-speed cameras. Its orientation is tracked using a novel, efficient algorithm; it is based on the identification of possible orientation `candidates' at each time step, with the dynamics later obtained from maximization of a likelihood function. Analysis of the resulting linear and angular velocities and accelerations reveal a surprising intermittency for an object whose size lies in the integral range, close to the integral scale of the underlying turbulent flow.

Deformation and orientation effects in the driving potential of the dinuclear model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A double-folding method is used to calculate the nuclear and Coulomb interaction between two deformed nuclei with arbitrary orientations. A simplified Skryme-type interaction is adopted. The contributions of nuclear interaction and Coulomb interaction due to the deformation and orientation of the nuclei are evaluated for the driving potential used in the description of heavy-ion fusion reaction. So far there is no satisfactory theory to describe the evolution of the dynamical nuclear deformation and orientations during the heavy-ion fusion process. Our results estimated the magnitude of above effects.

Time-dependent unitary perturbation theory for intense laser driven molecular orientation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We apply a time-dependent perturbation theory based on unitary transformations combined with averaging techniques, on molecular orientation dynamics by ultrashort pulses. We test the validity and the accuracy of this approach on LiCl described within a rigid-rotor model and find that it is more accurate than other approximations. Furthermore, it is shown that a noticeable orientation can be achieved for experimentally standard short laser pulses of zero time average. In this case, we determine the dynamically relevant parameters by using the perturbative propagator, that is derived from this scheme, and we investigate the temperature effects on the molecular orientation dynamics.

Mesoscopic model for filament orientation in growing actin networks: the role of obstacle geometry  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Propulsion by growing actin networks is a universal mechanism used in many different biological systems. Although the core molecular machinery for actin network growth is well preserved in most cases, the geometry of the propelled obstacle can vary considerably. In recent years, filament orientation distribution has emerged as an important observable characterizing the structure and dynamical state of the growing network. Here we derive several continuum equations for the orientation distribution of filaments growing behind stiff obstacles of various shapes and validate the predicted steady state orientation patterns by stochastic computer simulations based on discrete filaments. We use an ordinary differential equation approach to demonstrate that for flat obstacles of finite size, two fundamentally different orientation patterns peaked at either +35/-35 or +70/0/-70 degrees exhibit mutually exclusive stability, in agreement with earlier results for flat obstacles of very large lateral extension. We calculat...

New Method for Rapid Measurement of Orientations and Sizes of Grains in Multicrystalline Silicon Wafers  

SciTech Connect

We describe a new technique for rapid measurement of orientations and sizes of various grains in a multicrystalline silicon (mc-Si) wafer. The wafer is texture etched to expose (111) faces nearest to each surface. Because grains of different orientations result in uniquely different texture shapes, they also have well-defined reflectance values. Hence, the process of determining the grain orientations is brought down to making reflectance maps. Reflectance maps are produced by PVSCAN or reflectometer (GT FabScan), and then transformed into orientation maps. Because the grain boundaries are very well delineated in the reflectance maps, they are also excellent for making measurements of size and distribution of grains. We will compare the results of this technique with other standard techniques.

Orientations of LASCO Halo CMEs and Their Connection to the Flux Rope Structure of Interplanetary CMEs  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) observed near the Sun via LASCO coronographic imaging are the most important solar drivers of geomagnetic storms. ICMEs, their interplanetary, near-Earth counterparts, can be detected in-situ, for example, by the Wind and ACE spacecraft. An ICME usually exhibits a complex structure that very often includes a magnetic cloud (MC). They can be commonly modelled as magnetic flux ropes and there is observational evidence to expect that the orientation of a halo CME elongation corresponds to the orientation of the flux rope. In this study, we compare orientations of elongated CME halos and the corresponding MCs, measured by Wind and ACE spacecraft. We characterize the MC structures by using the Grad-Shafranov reconstruction technique and three MC fitting methods to obtain their axis directions. The CME tilt angles and MC fitted axis angles were compared without taking into account handedness of the underlying flux rope field and the polarity of its axial field. We report that for about 64% of CME-MC events, we found a good correspondence between the orientation angles implying that for the majority of interplanetary ejecta their orientations do not change significantly (less than 45 deg rotation) while travelling from the Sun to the near Earth environment.

Arbitrary tip orientation in STM simulations: 3D WKB theory and application to W(110)  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We extend the orbital-dependent electron tunneling model implemented within the three-dimensional (3D) Wentzel-Kramers-Brillouin (WKB) atom-superposition approach for simulating scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) by including arbitrary tip orientations. The orientation of the tip is characterized by a local coordinate system centered on the tip apex atom obtained by a rotation with respect to the sample coordinate system. The rotation is described by the Euler angles. Applying our method, we highlight the role of the real-space shape of the electron orbitals involved in the tunneling, and analyze the convergence and the orbital contributions of the tunneling current above the W(110) surface depending on the orientation of a model tungsten tip. We also simulate STM images at constant-current condition, and find that their quality depends very much on the tip orientation. Some orientations result in protrusions on the images that do not occur above W atoms. The presence of such apparent atom positions makes it...

Bulk inhomogeneous phases of anisotropic particles: A fundamental measure functional study of the restricted orientations model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The phase diagram of prolate and oblate particles in the restricted orientations approximation (Zwanzig model) is calculated. Transitions to different inhomogeneous phases (smectic, columnar, oriented, or plastic solid) are studied through minimization of the fundamental measure functional (FMF) of hard parallelepipeds. The study of parallel hard cubes (PHC's) as a particular case is also included motivated by recent simulations of this system. As a result a rich phase behavior is obtained which include, apart from the usual liquid crystal phases, a very peculiar phase (called here discotic smectic) which was already found in the only existing simulation of the model, and which turns out to be stable because of the restrictions imposed on the orientations. The phase diagram is compared at a qualitative level with simulation results of other anisotropic particle systems.

Goal-Oriented Adaptivity and Multilevel Preconditioning for the Poisson-Boltzmann Equation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this article, we develop goal-oriented error indicators to drive adaptive refinement algorithms for the Poisson-Boltzmann equation. Empirical results for the solvation free energy linear functional demonstrate that goal-oriented indicators are not sufficient on their own to lead to a superior refinement algorithm. To remedy this, we propose a problem-specific marking strategy using the solvation free energy computed from the solution of the linear regularized Poisson-Boltzmann equation. The convergence of the solvation free energy using this marking strategy, combined with goal-oriented refinement, compares favorably to adaptive methods using an energy-based error indicator. Due to the use of adaptive mesh refinement, it is critical to use multilevel preconditioning in order to maintain optimal computational complexity. We use variants of the classical multigrid method, which can be viewed as generalizations of the hierarchical basis multigrid and Bramble-Pasciak-Xu (BPX) preconditioners.

Ionization of oriented carbonyl sulfide molecules by intense circularly polarized laser pulses  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We present combined experimental and theoretical results on strong-field ionization of oriented carbonyl sulfide molecules by circularly polarized laser pulses. The obtained molecular frame photoelectron angular distributions show pronounced asymmetries perpendicular to the direction of the molecular electric dipole moment. These findings are explained by a tunneling model invoking the laser-induced Stark shifts associated with the dipoles and polarizabilities of the molecule and its unrelaxed cation. The focus of the present article is to understand the strong-field ionization of one-dimensionally-oriented polar molecules, in particular asymmetries in the emission direction of the photoelectrons. In the following article [Phys. Rev. A 83, 023406 (2011)] the focus is to understand strong-field ionization from three-dimensionally-oriented asymmetric top molecules, in particular the suppression of electron emission in nodal planes of molecular orbitals.

Field-free orientation of CO molecules by femtosecond two-color laser fields  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We report the first experimental observation of non-adiabatic field-free orientation of a heteronuclear diatomic molecule (CO) induced by an intense two-color (800 and 400 nm) femtosecond laser field. We monitor orientation by measuring fragment ion angular distributions after Coulomb explosion with an 800 nm pulse. The orientation of the molecules is controlled by the relative phase of the two-color field. The results are compared to quantum mechanical rigid rotor calculations. The demonstrated method can be applied to study molecular frame dynamics under field-free conditions in conjunction with a variety of spectroscopy methods, such as high-harmonic generation, electron diffraction and molecular frame photoemission.

Molecular orientation in soft matter thin films studied by resonant soft X-ray reflectivity  

SciTech Connect

We present a technique to study depth profiles of molecular orientation in soft matter thin films with nanometer resolution. The method is based on dichroism in resonant soft X-ray reflectivity using linear s- and p-polarization. It combines the chemical sensitivity of Near-Edge X-ray Absorption Fine Structure spectroscopy to specific molecular bonds and their orientation relative to the polarization of the incident beam with the precise depth profiling capability of X-ray reflectivity. We demonstrate these capabilities on side chain liquid crystalline polymer thin films with soft X-ray reflectivity data at the carbon K edge. Optical constants of the anisotropic refractive index ellipsoid were obtained from a quantitative analysis using the Berreman formalism. For films up to 50 nm thickness we find that the degree of orientation of the long axis exhibits no depth variation and isindependent of the film thickness.

Role of bond orientational order in the crystallization of hard spheres  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

With computer simulations of the hard sphere model, we examine in detail the microscopic pathway connecting the metastable melt to the emergence of crystalline clusters. In particular we will show that the nucleation of the solid phase does not follow a two-step mechanism, where crystals form inside dense precursor regions. On the contrary, we will show that nucleation is driven by fluctuations of orientational order, and not by the density fluctuations. By considering the development of the pair-excess entropy inside crystalline nuclei, we confirm that orientational order precedes positional order. These results are at odd with the idea of a two-step nucleation mechanism for fluids without a metastable liquid-liquid phase separation. Our study suggests the pivotal role of bond orientational ordering in triggering crystal nucleation.

Isotropic-nematic transition in hard-rod fluids: relation between continuous and restricted-orientation models  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We explore models of hard-rod fluids with a finite number of allowed orientations, and construct their bulk phase diagrams within Onsager's second virial theory. For a one-component fluid, we show that the discretization of the orientations leads to the existence of an artificial (almost) perfectly aligned nematic phase, which coexists with the (physical) nematic phase if the number of orientations is sufficiently large, or with the isotropic phase if the number of orientations is small. Its appearance correlates with the accuracy of sampling the nematic orientation distribution within its typical opening angle. For a binary mixture this artificial phase also exists, and a much larger number of orientations is required to shift it to such high densities that it does not interfere with the physical part of the phase diagram.

Controlling Domain Orientations in Thin Films of AB and ABA Block Copolymers  

SciTech Connect

Domain orientations in thin films of lamellar copolymers are evaluated as a function of copolymer architecture, film thickness, and processing conditions. Two copolymer architectures are considered: An AB diblock of poly(styrene-b-methyl methacrylate) and an ABA triblock of poly(methyl methacrylate-b-styrene-b-methyl methacrylate). All films are cast on substrates that are energetically neutral with respect to the copolymer constituents. Film structures are evaluated with optical microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and grazing-incidence small-angle X-ray scattering. For AB diblock copolymers, the domain orientations are very sensitive to film thickness, annealing temperature, and imperfections in the 'neutral' substrate coating: Diblock domains are oriented perpendicular to the substrate when annealing temperature is elevated ({>=} 220 C) and defects in the substrate coating are minimized; otherwise, parallel or mixed parallel/perpendicular domain orientations are detected for most film thicknesses. For ABA triblock copolymers, the perpendicular domain orientation is stable for all the film thicknesses and processing conditions that were studied. The orientations of diblock and triblock copolymers are consistent with recent works that consider architectural effects when calculating the copolymer surface tension (Macromolecules 2006, 39, 9346 and Macromolecules 2010, 43, 1671). Significantly, the data demonstrate that triblocks are easier to process for applications in nanopatterning - in particular, when high-aspect-ratio nanostructures are required. However, both diblock and triblock films contain a high density of 'tilted' or bent domains, and these kinetically trapped defects should be minimized for most patterning applications.

Mesoscopic model for filament orientation in growing actin networks: the role of obstacle geometry  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Propulsion by growing actin networks is a universal mechanism used in many different biological systems. Although the core molecular machinery for actin network growth is well preserved in most cases, the geometry of the propelled obstacle can vary considerably. In recent years, filament orientation distribution has emerged as an important observable characterizing the structure and dynamical state of the growing network. Here we derive several continuum equations for the orientation distribution of filaments growing behind stiff obstacles of various shapes and validate the predicted steady state orientation patterns by stochastic computer simulations based on discrete filaments. We use an ordinary differential equation approach to demonstrate that for flat obstacles of finite size, two fundamentally different orientation patterns peaked at either +35/-35 or +70/0/-70 degrees exhibit mutually exclusive stability, in agreement with earlier results for flat obstacles of very large lateral extension. We calculate and validate phase diagrams as a function of model parameters and show how this approach can be extended to obstacles with piecewise straight contours. For curved obstacles, we arrive at a partial differential equation in the continuum limit, which again is in good agreement with the computer simulations. In all cases, we can identify the same two fundamentally different orientation patterns, but only within an appropriate reference frame, which is adjusted to the local orientation of the obstacle contour. Our results suggest that two fundamentally different network architectures compete with each other in growing actin networks, irrespective of obstacle geometry, and clarify how simulated and electron tomography data have to be analyzed for non-flat obstacle geometries.

Easy orientation of diblock copolymers on self-assembled monolayers using UV irradiation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A simple method based on UV/ozone treatment is proposed to control the surface energy of dense grafted silane layers for orientating block copolymer mesophases. Our method allows one to tune the surface energy down to a fraction of a mN/m. We show that related to the surface, perpendicular orientation of a lamellar phase of a PS-PMMA diblock copolymer (neutral surface) is obtained for a critical surface energy of 23.9-25.7 mN/m. Perpendicular cylinders are obtained for 24.6 mN/m and parallel cylinders for 26.8 mN/m.

Spin-projection orientations in the plane square-lattice Ising model with periodic boundary conditions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The periodic boundary conditions changed the plane square-lattice Ising model to the torus-lattice system which restricts the spin-projection orientations. Only two of the three important spin-projection orientations, parallel to the x-axis or to the y-axis, are suited to the torus-lattice system. The infinitesimal difference of the free-energies of the systems between the two systems mentioned above makes their critical temperatures infinitely close to each other, but their topological fundamental groups are distinct.

Boundary-induced orientation of dynamic filament networks and vesicle agglomerations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We find a statistical mechanism that can adjust orientations of intracellular filaments to cell geometry in absence of organizing centers. The effect is based on random and isotropic filament (de-)polymerization dynamics and is independent of filament interactions and explicit regulation. It can be understood by an analogy to electrostatics and appears to be induced by the confining boundaries; for periodic boundary conditions no orientational bias emerges. Including active transport of particles, the model reproduces experimental observations of vesicle accumulations in transected axons.

In situ control of As dimer orientation on Ge(100) surfaces  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

We investigated the preparation of single domain Ge(100):As surfaces in a metal-organic vapor phase epitaxy reactor. In situ reflection anisotropy spectra (RAS) of vicinal substrates change when arsenic is supplied either by tertiarybutylarsine or by background As{sub 4} during annealing. Low energy electron diffraction shows mutually perpendicular orientations of dimers, scanning tunneling microscopy reveals distinct differences in the step structure, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy confirms differences in the As coverage of the Ge(100):As samples. Their RAS signals consist of contributions related to As dimer orientation and to step structure, enabling precise in situ control over preparation of single domain Ge(100):As surfaces.

Statistical Continuum Theory for the Effective Conductivity of Fiber Filled Polymer Composites: Effect of Orientation Distribution and Aspect Ratio  

Science Conference Proceedings (OSTI)

Effective conductivity of polymer composites, filled with conducting fibers such as carbon nanotubes, is studied using statistical continuum theory. The fiber orientation distribution in the matrix plays a very important role on their effective properties. To take into account their orientation, shape and distribution, two-point and three-point probability distribution functions are used. The effect of fibers orientation is illustrated by comparing the effective conductivity of microstructures with oriented and non-oriented fibers. The randomly oriented fibers result in an isotropic effective conductivity. The increased fiber orientation distribution can lead to higher anisotropy in conductivity. The effect of fiber’s aspect ratio on the effective conductivity is studied by comparing microstructures with varying degrees of fiber orientation distribution. Results show that the increase in anisotropy leads to higher conductivity in the maximum fiber orientation distribution direction and lower conductivity in the transverse direction. These results are in agreement with various models from the literature that show the increase of the aspect ratio of fibers improves the electrical and thermal conductivity.

A dynamic object-oriented architecture approach to ecosystem modeling and simulation.  

SciTech Connect

Modeling and simulation in support of adaptive ecosystem management can be better accomplished through a dynamic, integrated, and flexible approach that incorporates scientific and technological components into a comprehensive ecosystem-modeling framework. The Integrated Dynamic Landscape Analysis and Modeling System (IDLAMS) integrates ecological models and decision support techniques, through a geographic information system (GIS)-based framework. The Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) sponsored the development of IDLAMS. Initially built upon a GIS framework, IDLAMS is migrating to an object-oriented (OO) architectural framework. An object-oriented architecture is more flexible and modular. It allows disparate applications and dynamic models to be integrated in a manner that minimizes (or eliminates) the need to rework or recreate the system as new models are added to the suite. In addition, an object-oriented design makes it easier to provide run-time feedback among models, thereby making it a more dynamic tool for exploring and providing insight into the interactions among ecosystem processes. Finally, an object-oriented design encourages the reuse of existing technology because OO-IDLAMS is able to integrate disparate models, databases, or applications executed in their native languages. Reuse is also accomplished through a structured approach to building a consistent and reusable object library. This reusability can substantially reduce the time and effort needed to develop future integrated ecosystem simulations.

The role of viscoelastic contrast in orientation selection of block copolymer lamellar phases under oscillatory shear  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The mesoscale rheology of a lamellar phase of a block copolymer is modeled as a structured fluid of uniaxial symmetry. The model predicts a viscoelastic response that depends on the angle between the the local lamellar planes and velocity gradients. We focus on the stability under oscillatory shear of a two layer configuration comprising a parallel and a perpendicularly oriented domain, so that the two layers have a different viscoelastic modulus $G^{*}(\\omega)$. A long wave, low Reynolds number expansion is introduced to analytically obtain the region of stability. When the response of the two layers is purely viscous, we recover earlier results according to which the interface is unstable for non zero Reynolds number flows when the thinner layer is more viscous. On the other hand, when viscoelasticity is included, we find that the interface can become unstable even for zero Reynolds number. The interfacial instability is argued to dynamically favor perpendicular relative to parallel orientation, and hence we suggest that the perpendicular orientation would be selected in a multi domain configuration in the range of frequency $\\omega$ in which viscoelastic contrast among orientations is appreciable.

Renormalization of Orientable Non-Commutative Complex $?^6_3$ Model  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper we prove that the Grosse-Wulkenhaar type non-commutative orientable complex scalar $\\phi^6_3$ theory, with two non-commutative coordinates and the third one commuting with the other two, is renormalizable to all orders in perturbation theory. Our proof relies on a multiscale analysis in x space.

Object-oriented Pseudo-spectral code TARANG for turbulence simulation  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this paper we describe the design and implementation of TARANG, a pseudospectral code to simulate turbulent flows in fluids, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), convection, passive scalar, etc. We use the object-oriented features of C++ to abstract operations involved in the simulation. TARANG has been validated and used for solving problems in convection and MHD.
