Iris tilting and RF steering in the SLAC Linac  

SciTech Connect

For some time now, the sources of RF transverse beam steering in the SLAC Linac have been a mystery. The previously known sources, coupler asymmetries and survey misalignment, have predicted deflections which are frequently much smaller than the observed deflections. A new source of RF steering has been discovered: the tilting of accelerator irises. Measurements of iris tilting in a forty foot accelerator girder are compared with measurements of RF beam deflections and are found to be strongly correlated. 4 refs., 6 figs., 3 tabs.

Steering system for a train of rail-less vehicles  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A steering system for use with a multiple vehicle train permits tracking without rails of one vehicle after another. This system is particularly useful for moving conveyor systems into and out of curved paths of room and pillar underground mine installations. The steering system features an elongated steering bar pivotally connected to each of adjacent vehicles at end portions of the bar permitting angular orientation of each vehicle in respect to the steering bar and other vehicles. Each end portion of the steering bar is linked to the near pair of vehicle wheels through wheel yoke pivot arms about king pin type pivots. Movement of the steering bar about its pivotal connection provides proportional turning of the wheels to effect steering and tracking of one vehicle following another in both forward and reverse directions.

The calm before the storm. [Retail wheeling  

SciTech Connect

The right to refuse retail wheeling requests is one of the cornerstones of a utility's monopoly power. Utilities have fought staunchly to preserve it, most recently in preventing retail wheeling from becoming an important issue in the congressional debate over deregulation; the Energy Policy Act of 1992 steered clear of it. For the present, the prohibition of retail wheeling gives utilities enormous power over the retail electric power market. The ability to refuse retail wheeling requests, of course, prevents retail customers from buying power from third parties. This enables a utility to sell retail customers all the power it can generate, at a price that covers its cost plus an allowed return-even if its price exceeds that of power available in the wholesale market. The denial of retail wheeling thus protects a utility's inefficiencies, whose price is ultimately shouldered onto customers through cost-plus electric rates. Allowing retail wheeling would remove the foundation for much of the current monopoly power that utilities enjoy. Third parties could sell power to a utility's retail customers, since the utility would be required to wheel it. Retail customers would be able to bypass the local distribution utility to buy power from the cheapest source available. Market forces would drive pricing rather than the cost-plus ratemaking process. A utility whose electric rates were above market would have to meet the competitive price or lose sales.

Development of traction control for front-wheel drive in-wheel motor electric vehicles  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper proposes a novel traction control for a front-wheel drive in-wheel motor electric vehicle. The presented vehicle has advantages on high fuel efficiency and cost effectiveness. In order to achieve specific control performance, this study employed a high speed microcontroller as the vehicle's electronic control unit. The anti-skid function based on a reliable traction control kernel is embedded in the system, which can guarantee the steering safety in a slippery and dangerous situation. This study verifies that the traction control based on maximum torque regulation cannot only constrain the slip to improve the longitudinal friction force and lateral friction force, but also provide some information on tyre-road conditions, which can ensure the performance and the effectiveness of two-dimensional motion control. The numerical simulation and demonstration video reveal its effectiveness and feasibility.

Motor control and torque coordination of an electric vehicle actuated by two in-wheel motors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this research, an electric vehicle actuated by two in-wheel DC motors is developed. By properly coordinating the motor torques, both drive-by-wire and electrical steering can be achieved. Two critical issues respectively related to the design of motor controllers and the coordination of the two motor torques under control saturation are investigated in this study. Firstly, as for the in-wheel motors that are used for driving and steering simultaneously, their operation covers a wider dynamic range that forward acceleration (deceleration), and reverse acceleration (deceleration) may occur alternately. To perform driving and steering smoothly and efficiently, each motor should be switched to an appropriate mode to generate the torque demanded. Secondly, during the high-speed maneuvering, the high back-emf voltage in the motor coil substantially reduces the motors torque generating capability. Since the electrical steering depends on the differential torque of two wheels, when electrical steering is demanded in this case, torque/current saturation may occur in either one of the motors and the electrical steering performance could be seriously degraded. To address these issues, controllers of two levels are proposed. For the low-level controller (the motor controller), it operates the motor automatically in an appropriate mode for performance and efficiency consideration. An input transformation is introduced to cancel the nonlinearity in current dynamics so as to control the motor torque easily and precisely regardless of mode switching. For the high-level controller (the torque coordination controller), besides generating reference commands to the low-level controllers, during control saturation it can also properly re-distributes control signals to maintain consistent steering performance and provides compensation for integrator windup. The control system is implemented and the performance is experimentally and numerically validated.

Wheels Wheels Jump to: navigation, search Dictionary.png Water Wheels A water wheel is a large wheel that takes energy in free-flowing or falling water and converts it into a useful form of energy.[1] View on Wikipedia Wikipedia Definition A water wheel is a machine for converting the energy of free-flowing or falling water into useful forms of power, often in a watermill. A water wheel consists of a large wooden or metal wheel, with a number of blades or buckets arranged on the outside rim forming the driving surface. Most commonly, the wheel is mounted vertically on a horizontal axle, but the tub or Norse wheel is mounted horizontally on a vertical shaft. Vertical wheels can transmit power either through the axle or via a ring gear and typically drive belts or gears; horizontal wheels usually directly drive their load.

Modelling and analysis of electric power steering system and its effect on vehicle dynamic behaviour  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

While most passenger vehicles equipped with power steering systems are hydraulic power assisted, Electric Power Steering (EPS) systems are becoming wide spread since they can afford higher fuel efficiency. This paper develops an integrated simulation of an EPS control system with a full vehicle model. Using co-simulation technique, a full vehicle model interacting with EPS control algorithm is concurrently simulated on a single bump road condition. The effects of EPS on the vehicle dynamic behaviour and handling responses resulting from steer and road input are analysed and compared with proving ground experimental data. The comparisons show reasonable agreement on tie-rod load, rack displacement, steering wheel torque and tyre centre acceleration. This developed co-simulation capability may be useful for EPS performance evaluation and calibration as well as for vehicle handling performance integration.

1 1 Executive Summary: A Plan for Fermilab In This Section: Executive Summary: A Plan for Fermilab Guidelines The Steering Group's proposed plan Executive Summary: A Plan for Fermilab The Fermilab Steering Group has developed a plan to keep U.S. accelerator-based particle physics on the pathway to discovery, both at the Terascale with the LHC and the ILC and in the domain of neutrinos and precision physics with a high-intensity accelerator. The plan puts discovering Terascale physics with the LHC and the ILC as Fermilab's highest priority. While supporting ILC development, the plan creates opportunities for exciting science at the intensity frontier. If the ILC remains near the Global Design effort's technically driven timeline, Fermilab would continue neutrino science with the NOνA experiment, using the NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) proton plan, scheduled to begin operating in 2011. If ILC construction must wait somewhat longer, Fermilab's plan proposes SNuMI, an upgrade of NuMI to create a more powerful neutrino beam. If the ILC start is postponed significantly, a central feature of the proposed Fermilab plan calls for building an intense proton facility, Project X, consisting of a linear accelerator with the currently planned characteristics of the ILC combined with Fermilab's existing Recycler Ring and the Main Injector accelerator. The major component of Project X is the linac. Cryomodules, radio-frequency distribution, cryogenics and instrumentation for the linac are the same as or similar to those used in the ILC at a scale of about one percent of a full ILC linac.

EPR Steering Inequalities from Entropic Uncertainty Relations  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We use entropic uncertainty relations to formulate inequalities that witness Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) steering correlations in diverse quantum systems. We then use these inequalities to formulate symmetric EPR-steering inequalities using the mutual information. We explore the differing natures of the correlations captured by one-way and symmetric steering inequalities, and examine the possibility of exclusive one-way steerability in two-qubit states. Furthermore, we show that steering inequalities can be extended to generalized positive operator valued measures (POVMs), and we also derive hybrid-steering inequalities between alternate degrees of freedom.

Harsh medicine. [retail wheeling experiment in Michigan and side effects  

SciTech Connect

Retailing wheeling's harmful side-effects may surface in a Michigan experiment. In the final analysis, the debate over retail wheeling is about whether there will be direct price competition in the electric power industry. Retail wheeling would extend to the electric power market the same freedom of choice among customers that is present elsewhere in the economy. It would provide a mechanism through which competition could enforce an efficient allocation of resources. It also undoubtedly would eliminate most of the huge discrepancies that exist between so many neighboring service areas. It is unlikely that permitting retail wheeling would actually result in much wheeling or loss of load. Utilities will no doubt meet the threat of the loss of load by cutting rates to hold their customers. Hence, the primary effect would be on the pricing of electricity, not the wheeling of power. The retail wheeling experiment under consideration in Michigan can become an important step toward making the utility industry more efficient for the nation and more equitable for ratepayers. Unfortunately, it also is potentially unfair to the utilities involved. A retail wheeling experiment in one state is likely to put those utilities at risk for competitive attack, but is unlikely to give those utilities the countervailing power to use retail wheeling elsewhere to market their power. Fairness and economic efficiency require that retail wheeling exist everywhere, and that is is accessible to utilities as well as non-utilities.

Retail wheeling is less imminent than previously thought, according to a Fitch Investors Service survey of state regulators who appear to be more skeptical than optimistic about the prospects for direct customer access. The survey also shoes that those regulators who are interested in retail wheeling hope to experiment with it without federal intervention. Of the 36 states whose commissioners responded to the Fich survey, 28 percent expressed an overall positive outlook for retail wheeling within their states, while 42 percent were negative. The remaining 30 percent were neutral.

Combined Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy Tilt- and Focal Series  

SciTech Connect

In this study, a combined tilt- and focal series is proposed as a new recording scheme for high-angle annular dark-field scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) tomography. Three-dimensional (3D) data were acquired by mechanically tilting the specimen, and recording a through-focal series at each tilt direction. The sample was a whole-mount macrophage cell with embedded gold nanoparticles. The tilt focal algebraic reconstruction technique (TF-ART) is introduced as a new algorithm to reconstruct tomograms from such combined tilt- and focal series. The feasibility of TF-ART was demonstrated by 3D reconstruction of the experimental 3D data. The results were compared with a conventional STEM tilt series of a similar sample. The combined tilt- and focal series led to smaller missing wedge artifacts, and a higher axial resolution than obtained for the STEM tilt series, thus improving on one of the main issues of tilt series-based electron tomography.

Spheromak tilting instability in cylindrical geometry  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The internal tilting instability in a force?free spheromak plasma in cylindrical geometry is examined. It is found that this instability originally found in spherical geometry also occurs in cylindrical geometry. The analysis proceeds by first demonstrating that if no mode rational surface is present in the plasma a necessary and sufficient condition for ideal magnetohydrodynamic instability is that there exist a solution to ?B m = ? m B m where B m ?exp(i m?) with ? m tilting mode is unstable for these parameters. All modes with m?1 are shown to be stable.

Design of Efficient In-Wheel Motor for Electric Vehicles  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This research paper deals with the design and development of an in-wheel motor for electric vehicles. The proposed motor generates a 350-watt power drive with a power source of two 12V batteries. The batteries are connected in series to increase the voltage to 24 volts and 18.23 A. The in-wheel motor is based on the principle of a DC electric motor to drive the vehicle wheels so that the mechanical components of the transmission and the energy loss are minimized. The proposed in-wheel motor has 46 poles, 51 slots and 51 teeth. In addition, the method lowers the maintenance cost. This research work assumes the maximum weight of 70kg and the running speed of 20km/hr. The experiment results show that the output power and efficiency of the in-wheel motor are subject to the variation in input power given that the input voltage remains constant at 25.41 volts. The maximum efficiency of the in-wheel motor of 82.56% is achieved at 2.5 N-m torque. The maximum torque of 6.25 N-m is achieved with the input power of 348.76 watts.

Analytical investigation of collector optimum tilt angle at low latitude  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An analytical investigation on the optimum tilt angle for solar collectors at low latitude a case study of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) 4.39N and 100.98E Malaysia is presented in this work. The study employed Hay Davies Klucher and Reindl (HDKR) anisotropic sky model to evaluate the available hourly solar radiation on inclined surface using the location metrological data. The tilt angles considered were 0 to 30 in step of 3 with the inclusion of the location latitude angle. The study employed the ratio of global solar radiation on tilted surface to the global solar radiation on horizontal surface in the decision of the optimum tilt. The system equations were converted to MATLAB codes to solve for the optimum tilt angles. The results show that the optimum tilt varies monthly but gave zero degree for south facing collector for the months of April to August; thus the investigation also considered north facing orientation for the months of April to September. The optimum annual tilt angle for the location using the tilt to horizontal radiation ratio was found to be equal to the location latitude angle. Using the conventional average of the monthly optimum tilt angles the annual optimum tilt angle was found to be 9.75 for south facing collector. Considering seasonal optimum tilt angle for the location using the tilt to horizontal radiation ratio 18 facing south was found to be the optimum tilt angle for rainy season (September to March) and 15 facing north for dry season (April to August). Employing the average of monthly optimum tilt method the seasonal optimum tilt angle was found to be 17 for rainy season and 12 facing north dry season. The effect of dust on the collector was considered with reference to literature and the annual tilt angle of 15 facing south was recommended for the location in the case of large solar collector that cannot be monthly or seasonally adjusted.

The great ``retail wheeling`` illusion, and more productive energy futures  

SciTech Connect

This paper sets out the reasons why many environmental and public interest organizations oppose retail wheeling. Cavanagh argues that retail wheeling would destroy incentives for energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy generation--benefits that reduce long-term energy service costs to society as a whole. The current debate over the competitive restructuring of the electric power industry is critical from both economic and environmental perspectives. All attempts to introduce broad-scale retail wheeling in the United States have failed; instead, state regulators are choosing a path that emphasizes competition and choice, but acknowledges fundamental differences between wholesale and retail markets. Given the physical laws governing the movement of power over centrally controlled grids, the choice offered to customers through retail wheeling of electricity is a fiction -- a re-allocation of costs is all that is really possible. Everyone wants to be able to claim the cheapest electricity on the system; unfortunately, there is not enough to go around. By endorsing the fiction of retail wheeling for certain types of customers, regulators would be recasting the retail electricity business as a kind of commodity exchange. That would reward suppliers who could minimize near-term unit costs of electricity while simultaneously destroying incentives for many investments, including cost-effective energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy generation, that reduce long-term energy service costs to society as a whole. This result, which has been analogized unpersuasively to trends in telecommunications and natural gas regulation, is neither desirable nor inevitable. States should go on saying no to retail wheeling in order to be able to create something better: regulatory reforms that align utility and societal interests in pursuing a least-cost energy future. An appendix contains notes on some recent Retail Wheeling Campaigns.

Design of an omnidirectional and holonomic wheeled platform prototype  

SciTech Connect

This paper presents the concepts for a new family of wheeled platforms which feature full omnidirectionality with simultaneous and independent rotational and translational motion capabilities. We first describe the original orthogonal-wheels assembly'' on which these platforms are based and discuss how a combination of these assemblies is used to generate an omnidirectional capability. The design and control of a prototype platform developed to test and demonstrate the proposed concepts is then described, and experimental results illustrating the full omnidirectionality of the platform with decoupled rotational and translational degrees of freedom are presented. 15 refs., 9 figs.

Multistage axial-flux PM machine for wheel direct drive  

SciTech Connect

The design of direct-drive wheel motors must comply with diameter restriction due to housing the motor in a wheel rim and allow the achievement of very high torque density and overload capability. Slotless axial-flux permanent magnet machines (AFPMs) prove to be the best candidate for application in electric vehicles as direct-drive wheel motors, as in comparison with conventional machines they allow designs with higher compactness, lightness and efficiency. The paper presents a newly conceived AFPM which has a multistage structure and a water-cooled ironless stator. In the proposed new topology of the machine the space formerly occupied by the toroidal core becomes a water duct, which removes heat directly from the interior surface of the stator winding. The high efficiency of the machine cooling arrangement allows long-term 100% overload operation and great reduction of the machine weight. The multistage structure of the machine is suited to overcome the restriction on the machine diameter and meet the torque required at the wheel shaft. The paper gives guidelines for the design of a multistage AFPM with water-cooled ironless stator, and describes characteristics of a two-stage prototype machine rated 215 N{center_dot}m, 1,100 r/min.

Spheromak dynamics is studied for a zero-? plasma by a three-dimensional magneto-hydrodynamics simulation code. The growth rate of the tilting instability is found to be of the order of 10?A (Alfvn transit time) and, more interestingly, once tilt occurs, the spheromak field reconnects three dimensionally with the vertical field, thus leading to a disruptive deformation of the spheromak.

Innovative grinding wheel design for cost-effective machining of advanced ceramics. Phase I, final report  

SciTech Connect

Norton Company successfully completed the 16-month Phase I technical effort to define requirements, design, develop, and evaluate a next-generation grinding wheel for cost-effective cylindrical grinding of advanced ceramics. This program was a cooperative effort involving three Norton groups representing a superabrasive grinding wheel manufacturer, a diamond film manufacturing division and a ceramic research center. The program was divided into two technical tasks, Task 1, Analysis of Required Grinding Wheel Characteristics, and Task 2, Design and Prototype Development. In Task 1 we performed a parallel path approach with Superabrasive metal-bond development and the higher technical risk, CVD diamond wheel development. For the Superabrasive approach, Task 1 included bond wear and strength tests to engineer bond-wear characteristics. This task culminated in a small-wheel screening test plunge grinding sialon disks. In Task 2, an improved Superabrasive metal-bond specification for low-cost machining of ceramics in external cylindrical grinding mode was identified. The experimental wheel successfully ground three types of advanced ceramics without the need for wheel dressing. The spindle power consumed by this wheel during test grinding of NC-520 sialon is as much as to 30% lower compared to a standard resin bonded wheel with 100 diamond concentration. The wheel wear with this improved metal bond was an order of magnitude lower than the resin-bonded wheel, which would significantly reduce ceramic grinding costs through fewer wheel changes for retruing and replacements. Evaluation of ceramic specimens from both Tasks 1 and 2 tests for all three ceramic materials did not show evidence of unusual grinding damage. The novel CVD-diamond-wheel approach was incorporated in this program as part of Task 1. The important factors affecting the grinding performance of diamond wheels made by CVD coating preforms were determined.

Joint measurability, steering and entropic uncertainty  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The notion of incompatibility of measurements in quantum theory is in stark contrast with the corresponding classical perspective, where all physical observables are jointly measurable. It is of interest to examine if the results of two or more measurements in the quantum scenario can be perceived from a classical point of view or they still exhibit non-classical features. Clearly, commuting observables can be measured jointly using projective measurements and their statistical outcomes can be discerned classically. However, such simple minded association of compatibility of measurements with commutativity turns out to be limited in an extended framework, where the usual notion of sharp projective valued measurements of self adjoint observables gets broadened to include unsharp measurements of generalized observables constituting positive operator valued measures (POVM). There is a surge of research activity recently towards gaining new physical insights on the emergence of classical behavior via joint measurability of unsharp observables. Here, we explore the entropic uncertainty relation for a pair of discrete observables (of Alice's system) when an entangled quantum memory of Bob is restricted to record outcomes of jointly measurable POVMs only. Within the joint measurability regime, the sum of entropies associated with Alice's measurement outcomes - conditioned by the results registered at Bob's end - are constrained to obey an entropic steering inequality. In this case, Bob's non-steerability reflects itself as his inability in predicting the outcomes of Alice's pair of non-commuting observables with better precision, even when they share an entangled state. As a further consequence, the quantum advantage envisaged for the construction of security proofs in key distribution is lost, when Bob's measurements are restricted to the joint measurability regime.

Experimental device-independent verification of quantum steering  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Bell nonlocality between distant quantum systems---i.e., joint correlations which violate a Bell inequality---can be verified without trusting the measurement devices used, nor those performing the measurements. This leads to unconditionally secure protocols for quantum information tasks such as cryptographic key distribution. However, complete verification of Bell nonlocality requires high detection efficiencies, and is not robust to the typical transmission losses that occur in long distance applications. In contrast, quantum steering, a weaker form of quantum correlation, can be verified for arbitrarily low detection efficiencies and high losses. The cost is that current steering-verification protocols require complete trust in one of the measurement devices and its operator, allowing only one-sided secure key distribution. We present device-independent steering protocols that remove this need for trust, even when Bell nonlocality is not present. We experimentally demonstrate this principle for singlet states and states that do not violate a Bell inequality.

Optimum tilt angle and orientation for solar collectors in Syria  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

One of the important parameters that affect the performance of a solar collector is its tilt angle with the horizon. This is because of the variation of tilt angle changes the amount of solar radiation reaching the collector surface. A mathematical model was used for estimating the solar radiation on a tilted surface, and to determine the optimum tilt angle and orientation (surface azimuth angle) for the solar collector in the main Syrian zones, on a daily basis, as well as for a specific period. The optimum angle was computed by searching for the values for which the radiation on the collector surface is a maximum for a particular day or a specific period. The results reveal that changing the tilt angle 12 times in a year (i.e. using the monthly optimum tilt angle) maintains approximately the total amount of solar radiation near the maximum value that is found by changing the tilt angle daily to its optimum value. This achieves a yearly gain in solar radiation of approximately 30% more than the case of a solar collector fixed on a horizontal surface.

Short-circuit simulations help quantify wheeling flow  

SciTech Connect

During the late 1960s, three nuclear power plants were constructed in New England: Connecticut Yankee (590 MW, located in Haddam, Connecticut), Maine Yankee (870 MW located in Wiscasset, Maine), and Vermont Yankee (520 MW, located in Vernon, Vermont). Up to thirty-three New England utilities and municipalities participate in each. These units, called the Yankee units, are connected to the New England 345 kV transmission system. Built before the conception of the New England Power Pool (NEPOOL), these units rely on negotiated transmission agreements to implement the purchased power contracts. The Yankee Transmission Agreements were established to provide a mechanism for New England utilities, which provide the transmission wheeling services, to be adequately compensated for delivering the Yankee power. Under the agreements, the purchasing utilities (those utilities who purchase power from the nuclear plants) would pay into separate transmission funds based on their entitlement in the unit. The fund is then distributed among the transmitting utilities (those utilities providing the transmission wheeling services) based on the calculated use of their transmission systems. A methodology was established that could equal the units` life, offer flexibility to a changing system, and provide equitable results. This article describes how using commercially available software to automate simulations, perform the MW-miles calculation, and tabulate the results significantly reduces the time and computational effort to perform the wheeling calculations.

Visual estimation of wheel sinkage for rough-terrain mobile robots  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

For mobile robots driving across natural terrains, it is critical that the dynamic effects occurring at the wheel-terrain interface be taken into account. One of the most prevalent of these effects is wheel sinkage. Wheels can sink to depths sufficient to prevent further motion, possibly leading to danger of entrapment. This paper presents an algorithm for visual estimation of sinkage. We call it the visual sinkage estimation (VSE) method. It assumes the presence of a monocular camera and an artificial pattern, attached to the wheel side, to determine the terrain contact angle. This paper also introduces an analytical model for wheel sinkage in deformable terrain based on terramechanics. To validate the VSE module, firstly, several tests are performed on a single-wheel test bed, under different operating conditions. Secondly, the effectiveness of the proposed approach is proved in real contexts, employing an all-terrain rover travelling on a sandy beach.

The Properties of the Tilts of Bipolar Solar Regions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We investigate various properties associated with the tilt of isolated magnetic bipoles in magnetograms taken at the solar surface. We show that bipoles can be divided into two groups which have tilts of opposite signs, and reveal similar properties with respect to bipole area, flux and bipolar moment. Detailed comparison of these physical quantities shows that the dividing point between the two types of bipoles corresponds to a bipole area of about 300 millionths of the solar hemisphere (MHS). The time-latitude distribution of small bipoles differs substantially from that for large bipoles. Such behaviour in terms of dynamo theory may indicate that small and large bipoles trace different components of the solar magnetic field. The other possible viewpoint is that the difference in tilt data for small and large bipoles is connected with spectral helicity separation, which results in opposite tilts for small and large bipoles. We note that the data available do not provide convincing reasons to prefer either i...

Analytic Steering: Inserting Context into the Information Dialog  

SciTech Connect

An analysts intrinsic domain knowledge is a primary asset in almost any analysis task. Unstructured text analysis systems that apply un-supervised content analysis approaches can be more effective if they can leverage this domain knowledge in a manner that augments the information discovery process without obfuscating new or unexpected content. Current unsupervised approaches rely upon the prowess of the analyst to submit the right queries or observe generalized document and term relationships from ranked or visual results. We propose a new approach which allows the user to control or steer the analytic view within the unsupervised space. This process is controlled through the data characterization process via user supplied context in the form of a collection of key terms. We show that steering with an appropriate choice of key terms can provide better relevance to the analytic domain and still enable the analyst to uncover un-expected relationships; this paper discusses cases where various analytic steering approaches can provide enhanced analysis results and cases where analytic steering can have a negative impact on the analysis process.

Laser Guide Star Adaptive Optics without Tip-tilt  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Adaptive optics (AO) systems allow a telescope to reach its diffraction limit at near infrared wavelengths. But to achieve this, a bright natural guide star (NGS) is needed for the wavefront sensing, severely limiting the fraction of the sky over which AO can be used. To some extent this can be overcome with a laser guide star (LGS). While the laser can be pointed anywhere in the sky, one still needs to have a natural star, albeit fainter, reasonably close to correct the image motion (tip-tilt) to which laser guide stars are insensitive. There are in fact many astronomical targets without suitable tip-tilt stars, but for which the enhanced resolution obtained with the Laser Guide Star Facility (LGSF) would still be very beneficial. This article explores what adaptive optics performance one might expect if one dispenses with the tip-tilt star, and in what situations this mode of observing might be needed.

Spheromak tilt stabilization with an energetic particle component  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The tilt and shift stability of a spheromak plasma in the presence of a large orbit ion?ring component is determined by evaluating the magnetic interaction of the plasma with the ion ring and the external coils. Neither the ion?ring toroidal current nor the ring inverse aspect ratio is required to be small. The influence of conducting walls is considered to be negligible as is appropriate for compression experiments. The plasma tilt and shift stability has been evaluated for a comprehensive set of numerically generated self?consistent hybrid spheromak/ion?ring equilibria. Stable equilibria are found over a considerable range of the parameters. The tilt stabilization of the plasma typically requires that more than about 25% of the total toroidal current be carried by the ion ring.

Reverse time migration in tilted transversely isotropic media  

SciTech Connect

This paper presents a reverse time migration (RTM) method for the migration of shot records in tilted transversely isotropic (TTI) media. It is based on the tilted TI acoustic wave equation that was derived from the dispersion relation. The RTM is a full depth migration allowing for velocity to vary laterally as well as vertically and has no dip limitations. The wave equation is solved by a tenth-order finite difference scheme. Using 2D numerical models, we demonstrate that ignoring the tilt angle will introduce both lateral and vertical shifts in imaging. The shifts can be larger than 0.5 wavelength in the vertical direction and 1.5 wavelength in the lateral direction.

Fractional-slot PM motors for electric power steering systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper deals with some considerations about a PM motor with fractional number of slot per pole per phase, adopted for an electric power steering system. The key requirements of such a system, such as efficiency, torque ripple, fault tolerance, weight and cost, are considered and discussed. The possibility to design the motor in different forms is investigated, introducing some criteria to evaluate the convenience of using non-overlapping winding.

X-ray tube with magnetic electron steering  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

An X-ray tube uses a magnetic field to steer electrons. The magnetic field urges electrons toward the anode, increasing the proportion of electrons emitted from the cathode that reach desired portions of the anode and consequently contribute to X-ray production. The magnetic field also urges electrons reflected from the anode back to the anode, further increasing the efficiency of the tube.

Experimental EPR-Steering of Bell-local States  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Entanglement is the defining feature of quantum mechanics, and understanding the phenomenon is essential at the foundational level and for future progress in quantum technology. The concept of steering was introduced in 1935 by Schr\\"odinger as a generalization of the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox. Surprisingly, it has only recently been formalized as a quantum information task with arbitrary bipartite states and measurements, for which the existence of entanglement is necessary but not sufficient. Previous experiments in this area have been restricted to the approach of Reid [PRA 40, 913], which followed the original EPR argument in considering only two different measurement settings per side. Here we implement more than two settings so as to be able to demonstrate experimentally, for the first time, that EPR-steering occurs for mixed entangled states that are Bell-local (that is, which cannot possibly demonstrate Bell-nonlocality). Unlike the case of Bell inequalities, increasing the number of measurement settings beyond two--we use up to six--dramatically increases the robustness of the EPR-steering phenomenon to noise.

Numerical study of natural convection in fully open tilted cavities  

SciTech Connect

A numerical simulation of two-dimensional laminar natural convection in a fully open tilted square cavity with an isothermally heated back wall is conducted. The remaining two walls of the cavity are adiabatic. Steady-state solutions are presented for Grashof numbers between 10{sup 2} and 10{sup 5} and for tilt angles ranging from {minus}60{degree} to 90{degree} (where 90{degree} represents a cavity with the opening facing down). The fluid properties are assumed to be constant except for the density variation with temperature that gives rise to the buoyancy forces, which is treated by the Boussinesq approximation. The fluid concerned is air with Prandtl number fixed at 0.71. The governing equations are expressed in a normalized primitive variables formulation. Numerical predictions of the velocity and temperature fields are obtained using the finite-volume-based power law (SIMPLER: Semi-Implicit Method for Pressure-Linked Equations Revised) algorithm. For a vertical open cavity ({alpha} = 0{degree}), the algorithm generated results that were in good agreement with those previously published. Flow patterns and isotherms are shown in order to give a better understanding of the heat transfer and flow mechanisms inside the cavity. Effects of the controlling parameters-Grashof number and tilt angle-on the heat transfer (average Nusselt number) are presented and analyzed. The results also revealed that the open-cavity Nusselt number approaches the flat-plate solution when either Grashof number or tilt angle increases. In addition, a correlation of the Nusselt number in terms of the Grashof number and tilt angle is developed and presented; a comparison is made with available data from other literature.

Splay and tilt energy of bipolar lipid membranes  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Archaea organisms are able to survive in extremely aggressive environment. It is thought that such resistance, at least, in part is sustained by unique properties of archaea membrane. The membrane consists of so called bolalipids, which has two polar heads joined by two hydrocarbon chains. Thus bolalipids can exist in two conformations: i) polar heads are located at different sides of bolalipid layer, so called, O-shape; ii) polar heads are located at the same side of the layer, so called, U-shape. Both polar heads and chains are chemically different from those for conventional lipids. In the present study we develop basis for theory of elasticity of bolalipid membranes. Deformations of splay, tilt and Gaussian curvature are considered. We show that energetic contributions of tilt deformation from two surfaces of bolalipid layer are additive, as well as Gaussian curvature, while splay deformations yield a cross-term. The presence of U-shapes is taken into account in terms of the layer spontaneous curvature. Estimation of tilt modulus and possible experiments allowing to measure splay moduli are described.

Electronic properties of graphite in tilted magnetic fields  

SciTech Connect

The minimal nearest-neighbor tight-binding model with the Peierls substitution is employed to describe the electronic structure of Bernal-stacked graphite subject to tilted magnetic fields. We show that while the presence of the in-plane component of the magnetic field has a negligible effect on the Landau level structure at the K point of the graphite Brillouin zone, at the H point it leads to the experimentally observable splitting of Landau levels which grows approximately linearly with the in-plane field intensity.

A remotely steered millimetre wave launcher for electron cyclotron heating and current drive on ITER  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

High-power millimetre wave beams employed on ITER for heating and current drive at the 170GHz electron cyclotron resonance frequency require agile steering and tight focusing of the beams to suppress neoclassical tearing modes. This paper presents experimental validation of the remote steering (RS) concept of the ITER upper port millimetre wave beam launcher. Remote steering at the entrance of the upper port launcher rather than at the plasma side offers advantages in reliability and maintenance of the mechanically vulnerable steering system. A one-to-one scale mock-up consisting of a transmission line, mitre bends, remote steering unit, vacuum window, square corrugated waveguide and front mirror simulates the ITER launcher design configuration. Validation is based on low-power heterodyne measurements of the complex amplitude and phase distribution of the steered Gaussian beam. High-power (400kW) short pulse (10ms) operation under vacuum, diagnosed by calorimetry and thermography of the near- and far-field beam patterns, confirms high-power operation, but shows increased power loss attributed to deteriorating input beam quality compared with low-power operation. Polarization measurements show little variation with steering, which is important for effective current drive requiring elliptical polarization for O-mode excitation. Results show that a RS range of up to ?12 to +12 can be achieved with acceptable beam quality. These measurements confirm the back-up design of the ITER ECRH&CD launcher with future application for DEMO.

Beam steering via resonance detuning in coherently coupled vertical cavity laser arrays  

SciTech Connect

Coherently coupled vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser arrays offer unique advantages for nonmechanical beam steering applications. We have applied dynamic coupled mode theory to show that the observed temporal phase shift between vertical-cavity surface-emitting array elements is caused by the detuning of their resonant wavelengths. Hence, a complete theoretical connection between the differential current injection into array elements and the beam steering direction has been established. It is found to be a fundamentally unique beam-steering mechanism with distinct advantages in efficiency, compactness, speed, and phase-sensitivity to current.

Depolarizing the debate: Can retail wheeling co-exist with integrated resource planning?  

SciTech Connect

Antagonists in the retail wheeling debate share a disgruntlement with the present industry structure and a desire to rely more on competition to achieve savings and efficiencies. But the critical question - is retail electric service a natural monopoly? - must be answered in the negative if retail competition is to be efficient. Only then should one go on to examine how such a regime might be structured. This article offers an approach to retail wheeling that is grounded in principles shared by both sides: economic efficiency, nondiscrimination and fairness to customers and shareholders. The article then turns to the source of both sides` disgruntlement: the industry`s illogical structure. This article discusses four principles: (1) Where retail electric service is a natural monopoly, unconditioned retail wheeling is inefficient; (2) Most arguments for unconditioned retail wheeling substitute a pecuniary interest for the public interest; (3) Efficient retail procurement within a natural retail monopoly must be consistent with an integrated resource plan; (4) As presently framed, the retail wheeling debate does not confront the electric industry`s structural flaws.

Thermal performance of oil spray cooling system for in-wheel motor in electric vehicles  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The cooling of the motor in an in-wheel system is critical to its performance and durability. In the present study, the shape of the channel in the hollow shaft for the oil spray cooling of a high-capacity 35kW in-wheel motor was optimized, and the thermal performance of the motor was evaluated by numerical analysis and experiments. The thermal flow was analyzed by evaluating the thermal performance of two conventional cooling models of in-wheel motors under conditions of continuous rating base speed. For conventional model #1, in which the cooling oil is stagnant in the lower end of the motor, the maximum temperature of the coil was 221.7C. For conventional model #2, in which the cooling oil circulates through the exit and entrance of the housing and jig, the maximum temperature of the coil was 155.4C. Both models thus proved to be unsuitable for in-wheel motors because the motor control specifications limit the maximum temperature to 150C. We designed and manufactured an enhanced model for in-wheel motors, which we equipped with an optimized channel for the oil spray cooling mode, and evaluated its thermal performance under continuous rating conditions. The maximum temperatures of the coil at the base and maximum speeds, which were set as the design points, were below the motor temperature limit, being 138.1 and 137.8C, respectively.

Experimental characterization of mechanical vibrations and acoustical noise generated by defective automotive wheel hub bearings  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Wheel hub bearing faults in passenger cars cause chattering at the corresponding wheel, increase chassis vibration and generate high noise levels inside the car cabin. In this paper a series of in-situ test with defective and healthy wheel hub bearings were conducted. Mechanical vibrations and sound were measured and data were analyzed with a number of signal processing methods in frequency and time-frequency domains. Additionally, a statistical signal processing method was also performed. The results of the various methods are compared and it was found that most of the methods used in this work are well suited for the analysis. Some methods, however, show certain limitations with respect to their informative value and their ability of implementation.

EPR-Steering measure for two-mode continuous variable states  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Steering is a manifestation of quantum correlations that embodies the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox. While there have been recent attempts to quantify steering, continuous variable systems remained elusive. We introduce a steering measure for two-mode continuous variable systems that is valid for arbitrary states. The measure is based on the violation of an optimized variance test for the EPR paradox, and admits a computable and experimentally friendly lower bound only depending on the second moments of the state, which reduces to a recently proposed quantifier of steerability by Gaussian measurements. We further show that Gaussian states are extremal with respect to our measure, minimizing it among all continuous variable states with fixed second moments. As a byproduct of our analysis, we generalize and relate well-known EPR-steering criteria. Finally an operational interpretation is provided, as the proposed measure is shown to quantify the optimal guaranteed key rate in semi-device independent qua...

Multipartite Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering and genuine tripartite entanglement with optical networks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) paradox established a link between entanglement and nonlocality in quantum mechanics. EPR steering is the nonlocality associated with the EPR paradox and has traditionally only been investigated between two parties. Here, we present the first experimental observations of multipartite EPR steering, and of the genuine tripartite continuous variable entanglement of three mesoscopic optical systems. We explore different linear optics networks - each one with optimised asymmetries - that create multipartite steerable states containing different numbers of quantised optical modes (qumodes). By introducing asymmetric loss on a 7-qumode state, we characterize 8 regimes of directional steering, showing that N + 1 regimes exist for an N-qumode state. Further, we reveal the directional monogamy of steering, and experimentally demonstrate continuous variable one-sided semi device-independent quantum secret sharing. Our methods establish principles for the development of multiparty quantum communication protocols with asymmetric observers, and can be extended to qubits, whether photonic, atomic, superconducting, or otherwise.

Multi-stage axial-flux PM machine for wheel direct drive  

SciTech Connect

The design of direct-driven wheel motors must comply with diameter restriction due to housing the motor in a wheel rim and allow the achievement of very high torque density and overload capability. Slotless axial-flux permanent magnet machines (AFPMs) prove to be one best candidate for application in electric vehicles as direct-drive wheel motors, as in comparison with conventional machines they allow designs with higher compactness, lightness and efficiency. The paper presents a newly-conceived AFPM which has multi-stage structure and water-cooled ironless stator. In the proposed new topology of the machine the space formerly occupied by the toroidal core becomes a water duct, which removes heat directly from the interior surface of the stator winding. The high efficiency of the machine cooling arrangement allows long-term 100% overload operation and great reduction of the machine weight. The multistage structure of the machine is suited to overcome the restriction on the machine diameter and meet the torque required at the wheel shaft. The paper gives guidelines for the design of a multi-stage AFPM with water-cooled ironless stator, and describes characteristics of a two-stage prototype machine rated 220 Nm, 1,100 rpm.

Precision tip-tilt-piston actuator that provides exact constraint  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A precision device which can precisely actuate three degrees of freedom of an optic mount, commonly referred to as tip, tilt, and piston. The device consists of three identical flexure mechanisms, an optic mount to be supported and positioned, a structure that supports the flexure mechanisms, and three commercially available linear actuators. The advantages of the precision device is in the arrangement of the constraints offered by the flexure mechanism and not in the particular design of the flexure mechanisms, as other types of mechanisms could be substituted. Each flexure mechanism constrains two degrees of freedom in the plane of the mechanisms and one direction is actuated. All other degrees of freedom are free to move within the range of flexure mechanisms. Typically, three flexure mechanisms are equally spaced in angle about to optic mount and arranged so that each actuated degree of freedom is perpendicular to the plane formed by the optic mount. This arrangement exactly constrains the optic mount and allows arbitrary actuated movement of the plane within the range of the flexure mechanisms. Each flexure mechanism provides a mechanical advantage, typically on the order of 5:1, between the commercially available actuator and the functional point on the optic mount. This improves resolution by the same ratio and stiffness by the square of the ratio.

Latitude Based Model for Tilt Angle Optimization for Solar Collectors in the Mediterranean Region  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This paper inspects the different parameters that intervene in the determination of the optimal tilt angle for maximum solar energy collection. It proposes a method for calculating the optimal tilt angle based upon the values of the daily global solar radiation on a horizontal surface. A computer program using the mathematical model to calculate the solar radiation incident on an inclined surface as a function of the tilt angle is implemented. Four years data of daily global solar radiation on a horizontal surface in 35 sites in different countries of the Mediterranean region is used. The program assumes a due south orientation of the collectors and it determines the optimal tilt angle for maximum solar radiation collection for sites in the Mediterranean region. A regression analysis using the results of the computer simulation is conducted to develop a latitude based tilt angle optimization mathematical model for maximum solar radiation collection for the sites. We tested both a linear and a quadratic model (of the form ax2+bx) for representing the relationship between the annual optimal tilt angle and the site's latitude. The quadratic model is better; it provides very high prediction accuracy. 99.87% of the variation in the annual optimal tilt angle is explained by the variability in site's latitude with an average residual angle of only 0.96 for all 35 sites studied. It also gives an average percentage decrease in the annual solar radiation of only 0.016% when compared with actual optimal tilt angles.

Modelling and simulation of the electronic differential system for an electric vehicle with two-motor-wheel drive  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In-wheel-motor drive electric vehicle (EV) is an innovative configuration, in which each wheel is driven individually by an electric motor. It is possible to use an electronic differential (ED) instead of the heavy mechanical differential because of the fast response time of the motor. A new control approach for ED of a two in-wheel-motor drive EV is proposed based on the fuzzy logic control. The fuzzy logic method employs to estimate the slip rate of each wheel considering the complex and non-linear of the system. Consequently, the ED system distributes torque and power to each motor according to requirements. The effectiveness of the control method is validated in the Matlab/Simulink environment. By simulation results, it is demonstrated that the present ED control system is effective on keeping the slip rate within the optimal range and ensuring the stability of the vehicle either on a straight or curvilinear line.

The optimum tilt angle for flat-plate solar collectors in Iran  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper aims at determining the optimum tilt angle for south facing flat-plate solar collectors in Iran. Solar radiation on a horizontal surface was estimated by applying an empirical method and employing meteorological data from 80 selected cities. A mathematical model was used for estimating the solar radiation at different tilt angles. Daily monthly seasonally bi-annually and yearly optimum tilt angles and solar radiations were determined for 80 selected cities. Recommendations were made on the optimum tilt angle adjustment for different places in the country in order to benefit the best solar radiation available. The averaged benefits of annual solar radiation for 80 cities were 21.3% for daily 21% for monthly 19.6% for seasonal 19.3% for bi-annual and 13.3% for yearly adjustments compared with the radiation on the horizontal collector. Based on these results adjusting tilt angles at least twice a year is recommended. Optimum tilt angles for cloudy sky cities with a low clearness index are lower than those for cities at the same latitude angle having a higher clearness index. In addition to latitude angle the climate conditions are also important for determining the optimum tilt angle.

Optimal Measurements for Tests of EPR-Steering with No Detection Loophole using Two-Qubit Werner States  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

It has been shown in earlier works that the vertices of Platonic solids are good measurement choices for tests of EPR-steering using isotropically entangled pairs of qubits. Such measurements are regularly spaced, and measurement diversity is a good feature for making EPR-steering inequalities easier to violate in the presence of experimental imperfections. However, such measurements are provably suboptimal. Here, we develop a method for devising optimal strategies for tests of EPR-steering, in the sense of being most robust to mixture and inefficiency (while still closing the detection loophole of course), for a given number $n$ of measurement settings. We allow for arbitrary measurement directions, and arbitrary weightings of the outcomes in the EPR-steering inequality. This is a difficult optimization problem for large $n$, so we also consider more practical ways of constructing near-optimal EPR-steering inequalities in this limit.

In-line drivetrain and four wheel drive work machine using same  

DOE Patents (OSTI)

A four wheel drive articulated mine loader is powered by a fuel cell and propelled by a single electric motor. The drivetrain has the first axle, second axle, and motor arranged in series on the work machine chassis. Torque is carried from the electric motor to the back differential via a pinion meshed with the ring gear of the back differential. A second pinion oriented in an opposite direction away from the ring gear is coupled to a drive shaft to transfer torque from the ring gear to the differential of the front axle. Thus, the ring gear of the back differential acts both to receive torque from the motor and to transfer torque to the forward axle. The in-line drive configuration includes a single electric motor and a single reduction gear to power the four wheel drive mine loader.

Lyapunov function-based non-linear control for two-wheeled mobile robots  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This article presents a non-linear feedback control framework for two-wheeled mobile robots. The approach uses a constructive Lyapunov function which allows the formulation of a control law with asymptotic stability of the equilibrium point of the system and a computable stability region. The dynamic equations are simplified through normalisation and partial feedback linearisation. The latter allows linearisation of only the actuated coordinate. Description of the control law is complemented by the stability analysis of the closed loop dynamics of the system. The effectiveness of the method has been illustrated by its good performance and less control demand through simulations conducted for two control tasks: upright position stabilisation and velocity tracking for a statically unstable two wheeled mobile robot.

Minimizing Wheel Slip in Railway Locomotives with Coupled Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In this work I consider control strategies of permanent magnet synchronous motors in which the back-emf signal from the motor is used to achieve commutation of the six step driving circuit. I show that if the strategy is modified to connect multiple motors in a cyclic chain, then a collective synchronized state is favoured. The stability of this state can be exploited in the bogies of a railway locomotive to automatically terminate wheel slipping episodes.

Kepler White Paper: Asteroseismology of Solar-Like Oscillators in a 2-Wheel Mission  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We comment on the potential for continuing asteroseismology of solar-type and red-giant stars in a 2-wheel Kepler Mission. Our main conclusion is that by targeting stars in the ecliptic it should be possible to perform high-quality asteroseismology, as long as favorable scenarios for 2-wheel pointing performance are met. Targeting the ecliptic would potentially facilitate unique science that was not possible in the nominal Mission, notably from the study of clusters that are significantly brighter than those in the Kepler field. Our conclusions are based on predictions of 2-wheel observations made by a space photometry simulator, with information provided by the Kepler Project used as input to describe the degraded pointing scenarios. We find that elevated levels of frequency-dependent noise, consistent with the above scenarios, would have a significant negative impact on our ability to continue asteroseismic studies of solar-like oscillators in the Kepler field. However, the situation may be much more optimi...

Analysis on cogging torque of driving in-wheel motor for electric vehicle  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In order to reduce the torque fluctuation, vibration and acoustic noise of driving in-wheel motor for electric vehicle, this paper researches the generation mechanism and influence factors of cogging torque. Based on energy method and Fourier expansion, an analytical method is proposed to establish the expression of cogging torque, which can express its relation with design parameters. Based on the expression, the match of pole and slot, pole arc coefficient and permanent magnet eccentric distance are analysed and studied. Ansoft software is used to establish a time-varying movement electromagnetic field finite element model, which can compute the cogging torque about the different match of the pole and slot, different pole arc coefficient and different permanent magnet eccentric distance, in order to obtain the change regularity of the corresponding cogging torque. The conformity of the final simulation computation results with the theoretical analysis indicates this method can be used to provide a theoretical basis to make further optimal design of the new driving in-wheel motor and its control system, so as to reduce torque ripple of in-wheel motor.

Proto-CIRCUS Tilted-Coil Tokamak-Torsatron Hybrid: Design and Construction  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present the field-line modeling, design and construction of a prototype circular-coil tokamak-torsatron hybrid called Proto-CIRCUS. The device has a major radius R = 16 cm and minor radius a tokamak, but they are tilted. This, combined with induced or driven plasma current, is expected to generate rotational transform, as seen in field-line tracing and equilibrium calculations. The device is expected to operate at lower plasma current than a tokamak of comparable size and magnetic field, which might have interesting implications for disruptions and steady-state operation. Additionally, the toroidal magnetic ripple is less pronounced than in an equivalent tokamak in which the coils are not tilted. The tilted coils are interlocked, resulting in a relatively low aspect ratio, and can be moved, both radially and in tilt angle, between discharges. This capability will be exploited for detailed comparisons between calculations and field-line mapping me...

Development of an ``intelligent grinding wheel`` for in-process monitoring of ceramic grinding. Semi-annual report {number_sign}4  

SciTech Connect

The overall objective of this project is to develop sensor-integrated ``intelligent`` diamond wheels for grinding of ceramics. Such wheels will be ``smart`` enough to monitor and supervise both the wheel preparation and grinding processes without the need to instrument the machine tool. Intelligent wheels will utilize re-useable cores integrated with sensors: to measure the acoustic emission (AE) and grinding force. Signals from the sensors will be transmitted from a rotating wheel to a receiver by telemetry. Wheels will be ``trained`` to recognize distinct characteristics associated with truing, dressing and grinding. This overall project is divided into six tasks as follows: (1) development of miniaturized sensors and data transmission system; (2) wheel design and sensor configuration; (3) calibration of the sensor integrated wheel; (4) training of the intelligent wheel; (5) grinding tests; and (6) prototype demonstration. The technical progress is summarized in this report according to the tasks. All activity during this period has been concerned with the first two interrelated tasks, which need to be completed before undertaking the remaining tasks.

COMPUTATIONAL STEERING: TOWARDS ADVANCED INTERACTIVE HIGH PERFORMANCE COMPUTING IN ENGINEERING SCIENCES  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Key-words: Computational steering, high-performance computing, interactive simulation, virtual reality, CFD Computational Science and Engineering faces a continuous increase of speed of computers and availability of very fast networks. Yet, it seems that some opportunities offered by these ongoing developments are only used to a fraction for numerical simulation. Moreover, despite new possibilities from computer visualization, virtual or augmented reality and collaboration models, most available engineering software still follows the classical way of a strict separation of preprocessing, computing and postprocessing. This paper will first identify some of the major obstructions of an interactive computation for complex simulation tasks in engineering sciences. These are especially found in traditional software structures, in the definition of geometric models and boundary conditions and in the often still very tedious work of generating computational meshes. It then presents a generic approach for collaborative computational steering, where pre- and postprocessing is integrated with high

Experimental investigation of line-tying effects on the spheromak tilt mode  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the absence of close fitting walls or conducting elements, the spheromak plasma configuration is unstable to at least one global MHD mode (tilting or shifting). Previous theoretical work suggested that line-tying effects could play a role in slowing down these modes. Line-tying was investigated in the Proto S-1/C spheromak device by a direct measurement of the line-tying character of the perturbed current within a passive stabilizer. The ring model of tilting is extended to include line-tying stabilization by taking into account the plasma sheath resistance. Comparison with experimental results show good agreement between predicted and observed growth rates.

Optimal steering of a linear stochastic system to a final probability distribution  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We consider the problem to steer a linear dynamical system with full state observation from an initial gaussian distribution in state-space to a final one with minimum energy control. The system is stochastically driven through the control channels; an example for such a system is that of an inertial particle experiencing random "white noise" forcing. We show that a target probability distribution can always be achieved in finite time. The optimal control is given in state-feedback form and is computed explicitely by solving a pair of differential Lyapunov equations that are coupled through their boundary values. This result, given its attractive algorithmic nature, appears to have several potential applications such as to active control of nanomechanical systems and molecular cooling. The problem to steer a diffusion process between end-point marginals has a long history (Schr\\"odinger bridges) and therefore, the present case of steering a linear stochastic system constitutes a Schr\\"odinger bridge for possibly degenerate diffusions. Our results, however, provide the first implementable form of the optimal control for a general Gauss-Markov process. Illustrative examples of the optimal evolution and control for inertial particles and a stochastic oscillator are provided. A final result establishes directly the property of Schr\\"{o}dinger bridges as the most likely random evolution between given marginals to the present context of linear stochastic systems.

The stabilizing influence of this current on the tilting mode is determined by employing an energy principle that includes gyroscopic and finite-gyroradius effects.

Application of the Cubed-Sphere Grid to Tilted Black-Hole Accretion Disks  

SciTech Connect

In recent work we presented the first results of global general relativistic magnetohydrodynamic (GRMHD) simulations of tilted (or misaligned) accretion disks around rotating black holes. The simulated tilted disks showed dramatic differences from comparable untilted disks, such as asymmetrical accretion onto the hole through opposing 'plunging streams' and global precession of the disk powered by a torque provided by the black hole. However, those simulations used a traditional spherical-polar grid that was purposefully underresolved along the pole, which prevented us from assessing the behavior of any jets that may have been associated with the tilted disks. To address this shortcoming we have added a block-structured 'cubed-sphere' grid option to the Cosmos++ GRMHD code, which will allow us to simultaneously resolve the disk and polar regions. Here we present our implementation of this grid and the results of a small suite of validation tests intended to demonstrate that the new grid performs as expected. The most important test in this work is a comparison of identical tilted disks, one evolved using our spherical-polar grid and the other with the cubed-sphere grid. We also demonstrate an interesting dependence of the early-time evolution of our disks on their orientation with respect to the grid alignment. This dependence arises from the differing treatment of current sheets within the disks, especially whether they are aligned with symmetry planes of the grid or not.

Evaluation of solar energy resources by establishing empirical models for diffuse solar radiation on tilted surface and analysis for optimum tilt angle for a prospective location in southern region of Sindh, Pakistan  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Diffuse solar radiation data is very important and is required for solar energy system implementations. The main purpose of the present study is to evaluate solar energy resources by establishing diffuse solar radiation models and obtaining optimum tilt angle fora prospective location is southern region of Sindh, Pakistan. Due to the unavailability of measured diffuse solar radiation data, nine new models, based on available data from local agency and values obtain from existing models, to predict diffuse solar radiation on tilted surface has been established. The best model was chosen based on test results from statistical indicators. The optimum tilt angle for monthly, seasonally, half-yearly and yearly adjustment was determined. The optimum tilt angle varies from 0 in May, June and July to 49 in December. The yearly optimum tilt angle was found as 23, which is close to latitude of investigated location (2507?N). The monthly average total, beam and diffuse solar radiations were calculated for optimum and vertical tilted surfaces and were compared with those obtain for horizontal surfaces. The half-yearly adjustment of optimum tilt angle is recommended for the investigated location because very small difference in annual solar energy gains in comparison with monthly or seasonal adjustment. The total annual energy for completer year and for four seasons of the year was calculated and found that maximum total annual energy is obtained at optimum tilt angle.

Performance Study of ScepterTM Metal Bond Diamond Grinding Wheel  

SciTech Connect

Advanced ceramics are attractive for many applications in the transportation, energy, military, and industrial markets because they possess properties of high-temperature durability, corrosion resistance, strength, hardness, stiffness, and wear resistance. Unfortunately, these same properties make advanced ceramics more difficult to machine than traditional materials. The reliability and manufacturing costs of advanced ceramic components are significant concerns that must be overcome. Nevertheless, the use of advanced ceramic materials is expected to increase dramatically in new transportation systems in response to more stringent energy conservation and pollution reduction requirements. This study discusses the goals, commercialization plans, phased development, scale-up, testing, and external verification of performance of the innovative grinding wheel that evolved from the project.

Parameter analysis and design framework for magnetic adhesion wall climbing wheeled robot  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Some robots need to climb ferromagnetic walls for performing important inspections and evaluations of the material properties of these walls. This paper aims to establish a design framework for magnetically adhering wheeled robots having magnets attached to the base of the robot. The different design parameters influencing the magnetic adhesion include the geometry of the flux concentrator, the variation of the air gap on adhesion and climbing performance in addition to various types of materials for magnetic flux concentration. These parameters shaping adhesion behaviour are simulated numerically using magnetostatic analysis in ANSYS Finite Elements Method (FEM) software. The results are evaluated and a set of rules and procedures are created as a framework that will enable a more efficient design and construction of this type of robots.

Without mitigation, these remnant fields will steer the unscattered beam enough to limit beam operations at small scattering angles. Presented here are magnetic field simulations of the spectrometer magnets and a solution using optimal placement of a minimal amount of shielding iron around the beam line.

Molecular Simulation of Fracture Dynamics of Symmetric Tilt Grain Boundaries in Graphene  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Atomistic simulations were utilized to obtain microscopic information of the elongation process in graphene sheets consisting of various embedded symmetric tilt grain boundaries (GBs). In contrast to pristine graphene, these GBs fractured in an extraordinary pattern under transverse uniaxial elongation in all but the largest misorientation angle case, which exhibited intermittent crack propagation and formed many stringy residual connections after quasi mechanical failure. The strings known as monoatomic carbon chains (MACCs), whose importance was recently highlighted, gradually extended to a maximum of a few nanometers as the elongation proceeded. These features, which critically affect the tensile stress and the shape of stress-strain curve, were observed in both armchair and zigzag-oriented symmetric tilt GBs. However, there exist remarkable differences in the population density and the achievable length of MACCs appearing after quasi mechanical failure which were higher in the zigzag-oriented GBs.

Inversion of azimuthally dependent NMO velocity in transversely isotropic media with a tilted axis of symmetry  

SciTech Connect

Just as the transversely isotropic model with a vertical symmetry axis (VTI media) is typical for describing horizontally layered sediments, transverse isotropy with a tilted symmetry axis (TTI) describes dipping TI layers (such as tilted shale beds near salt domes) or crack systems. P-wave kinematic signatures in TTI media are controlled by the velocity V{sub PO} in the symmetry direction, Thomsen's anisotropic coefficients {xi} and {delta}, and the orientation (tilt {nu} and azimuth {beta}) of the symmetry axis. Here, the authors show that all five parameters can be obtained from azimuthally varying P-wave NMO velocities measured for two reflectors with different dips and/or azimuths (one of the reflectors can be horizontal). The shear-wave velocity V{sub SO} in the symmetry direction, which has negligible influence on P-wave kinematic signatures, can be found only from the moveout of shear waves. Using the exact NMO equation, the authors examine the propagation of errors in observed moveout velocities into estimated values of the anisotropic parameters and establish the necessary conditions for a stable inversion procedure. Since the azimuthal variation of the NMO velocity is elliptical, each reflection event provides them with up to three constraints on the model parameters. Generally, the five parameters responsible for P-wave velocity can be obtained from two P-wave ellipses, but the feasibility of the moveout inversion strongly depends on the tilt {nu}. While most of the analysis is carried out for a single layer, the authors also extend the inversion algorithm to vertically heterogeneous TTI media above a dipping reflector using the generalized Dix equation. A synthetic example for a strongly anisotropic, stratified TTI medium demonstrates a high accuracy of the inversion.

Existence of the Wigner function with correct marginal distributions along tilted lines on a lattice  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

In order to determine the Wigner function uniquely, we introduce a new condition which ensures that the Wigner function has correct marginal distributions along tilted lines. For a system in $N$ dimensional Hilbert space, whose "phase space" is a lattice with $N^2$ sites, we get different results depending on whether $N$ is odd or even. Under the new condition, the Wigner function is determined if $N$ is an odd number, but it does not exist if $N$ is even.

This evaluation was done in two phases. The first phase consisted in an inter-comparison between the core radiation transfer models adopted by the SWERA Project to map the solar energy in the various countries participating in the project. The HELIOSAT model took part in this phase like benchmark due to its employment to map solar energy resources in countries from European Union. In the second phase, the solar flux estimates provided by the BRASIL-SR model were compared with measured values acquired at several solarimetric stations spread along the Brazilian territory. The BRASIL-SR model is not validated for areas covered by snow.

Nonlocality of a single photon: Paths to an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen-steering experiment  

SciTech Connect

A single-photon incident on a beam splitter produces an entangled field state, and in principle could be used to violate a Bell inequality, but such an experiment (without postselection) is beyond the reach of current experiments. Here we consider the somewhat simpler task of demonstrating Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen (EPR) steering with a single photon (also without postselection). We demonstrate that Alice's choice of measurement on her portion of the entangled state can affect Bob's portion of the entangled state in his laboratory, in a sense rigorously defined by us and Doherty [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 140402 (2007)]. Previous work by Lvovsky and coworkers [Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 047903 (2004)] has addressed this phenomenon (which they called remote preparation) experimentally using homodyne measurements on a single photon. Here we show that, unfortunately, their experimental parameters do not meet the bounds necessary for a rigorous demonstration of EPR steering with a single photon. However, we also show that modest improvements in the experimental parameters, and the addition of photon counting to the arsenal of Alice's measurements, would be sufficient to allow such a demonstration.

Investigation of failed fuel detection and location using a flux tilting method in a fast breeder reactor  

SciTech Connect

Detection and location of failed fuel in a liquid-metal fast breeder reactor (LMFBR) are very important both for safety and availability. When a fuel failure is detected, it is desirable to identify the failed subassembly quickly to reduce plant shutdown time. The flux tilting method is expected to effectively identify the defective subassembly. The feasibility of the flux tilting method is investigated for an LMFBR with a 100-MW (electric) homogeneous core. A numerical simulation is performed to estimate the viability of the flux tilting method, and a combination of the flux tilting method and the sipping method is found to be very effective in identifying the failed subassembly. In this paper a functional scheme for a computer-aided failed fuel detection and location system is discussed as part of a future on-line support system.

Entanglement, avoided crossings, and quantum chaos in an Ising model with a tilted magnetic field  

SciTech Connect

We study a one-dimensional Ising model with a magnetic field and show that tilting the field induces a transition to quantum chaos. We explore the stationary states of this Hamiltonian to show the intimate connection between entanglement and avoided crossings. In general, entanglement gets exchanged between the states undergoing an avoided crossing with an overall enhancement of multipartite entanglement at the closest point of approach, simultaneously accompanied by diminishing two-body entanglement as measured by concurrence. We find that both for stationary as well as nonstationary states, nonintegrability leads to a destruction of two-body correlations and distributes entanglement more globally.

Solar heat gain coefficient of complex fenestrations with a venetian blind for differing slat tilt angles  

SciTech Connect

Measured bidirectional transmittances and reflectances of a buff-colored venetian blind together with a layer calculation scheme developed in previous publications are utilized to produce directional-hemispherical properties for the venetian blind layer and solar heat gain coefficients for the blind in combination with clear double glazing. Results are presented for three blind slat tilt angles and for the blind mounted either interior to the double glazing or between the glass panes. Implications of the results for solar heat gain calculations are discussed in the context of sun positions for St. Louis, MO.

Heliostat tilt and azimuth angle charts and the heliostat orientation protractor  

SciTech Connect

This paper reports that using cartesian heliostat field coordinates analytical expressions were derived for the heliostat tilt angle s, and heliostat azimuth angle {gamma} (clockwise from south). These expressions are dependent on the field cartesian coordinates of the center of the heliostat and the solar zenith and azimuth angles (clockwise from south), {theta}{sub z} and {Psi}, respectively. Here, cylindrical coordinates are conveniently used to derive the expressions for the heliostat angles s and {gamma}. The expression of {gamma}is used to construct the so-called heliostat orientation protractor. The protractor is a useful tool to determine the instantaneous heliostat azimuth angle as will be illustrated.

Research on Application of Steering Drilling Technologies in Shale Gas Development  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract HF-1 well of Pengye is a sidetracking horizontal well for shale gas development, the directional segment of the well is long, high requirements for well trajectory control of the directional segment in construction process. In allusion to the features and challenges of this well drilling, this paper introduces the application of slide steering drilling system and rotary steerable drilling system in this well, including analyzing all these tool basic principle, the characteristics and field application. The analysis shows that using different angel screw drill tool can meet the needs of increasing hole angle, steadying hole angle and adjusting the orientation; Adoption of EZ-Pilot steerable rotary system solves the problem of remarkable resistance and low degree of hole cleanness in long horizontal section, and satisfies the requirement of drilling and completion of the well. The system also shows the desirable performance in improving ROP and hole quality.

Numerical study of tilt stability of prolate field-reversed configurations  

SciTech Connect

Global stability of the Field-Reversed Configuration (FRC) has been investigated numerically using both 3D MHD and hybrid (fluid electron and delta f particle ion) simulations. The stabilizing effects of velocity shear and large ion orbits on the n = 1 internal tilt mode in the prolate FRCs have been studied. Sheared rotation is found to reduce the growth rate, however a large rotation rate with Mach number of M greater than or approximately equal to 1 is required in order for significant reduction in the instability growth rate to occur. Kinetic effects associated with large thermal ion orbits have been studied for different kinetic equilibria. These simulations show that there is a reduction in the tilt mode growth rate due to finite ion Larmor radius (FLR) effects, but complete linear stability has not been found, even when the thermal ion gyroradius is comparable to the distance between the field null and the separatrix. The instability existing beyond the FLR theory threshold could be due to the resonant interaction of the wave with ions whose Doppler shifted frequency matches the betatron frequency.

Optimal solar-PV tilt angle and azimuth: An Ontario (Canada) case-study  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The purpose of this article is to determine the tilt angle and azimuth for a photovoltaic panel in Ontario (Canada) at which revenue is maximised. Measured and modelled solar radiation data, simulated photovoltaic panel performance, hourly electricity market data and details regarding pricing regimes from 2003 to 2008 are used to study two different locations. In all instances, the desired tilt angle is slightly less than latitude (depending upon the particular pricing regime, between 36 and 38 for Ottawa, which is at a latitude of 45N, and between 32 and 35 for Toronto, which is at a latitude of 44N), and the desired azimuth is close to due south (depending upon the particular pricing regime, between 4 west of due south and 6 east of due south for Ottawa, and between 1 west of due south and 2 east of due south for Toronto). In conclusion, the importance of solar electricity particularly valuable because of when it is produced and where it can be produced is highlighted, as are future priorities for research.

Tilt and shift mode stability in a spheromak with a flux core  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The stability of spheromak equilibria with a flux core or reversal coil is studied by means of an ideal magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) code. Results depend critically upon whether the flux hole region (the current free area just inside the separatrix) is treated as a perfectly conducting plasma or as a vacuum. This indicates that the tilt and shift modes persist as resistive instabilities if they are stable in ideal MHD. Specifically for nonoptimally shaped equilibria the flux core must nearly touch the current channel if the flux hole is a vacuum whereas the core may be slightly outside the separatrix if the flux hole has conducting plasma. A larger margin exists for optimally shaped equilibria.

SciTech Connect

The purpose of this letter report is to list the actions taken on historical documents that the Technical Steering Panel (TSP) and/or the public identified as being of potential use to the Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction (HEDR) Project. The documents addressed herein were generated from 1944 through 1960 at the Hanford Site and were still listed as classified documents in 1990. This report lists the 1429 documents and their classification status. All TSP- and/or public-requested declassifications of Hanford historical documents generated from 1944--1960 have been completed. Of the 1429 documents, 1103 were declassified. (492 as a result of TSP/public requests, 506 previously declassified, 105 declassified for other programs). The remaining 326 documents were not declassified because either they were determined by the TSP to be not applicable to the HEDR Project or because of the reasons given in the appendixes. Of the 1103 declassified documents, 506 have not been reviewed by the TSP for their pertinence to the HEDR Project. Figure I provides an overview of the declassification process.

Entanglement, EPR steering, and Bell-nonlocality criteria for multipartite higher-spin systems  

SciTech Connect

We develop criteria to detect three classes of nonlocality that have been shown by Wiseman et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 140402 (2007)] to be nonequivalent: entanglement, EPR steering, and the failure of local hidden-variable theories. We use the approach of Cavalcanti et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 210405 (2007)] for continuous variables to develop the nonlocality criteria for arbitrary spin observables defined on a discrete Hilbert space. The criteria thus apply to multisite qudits, i.e., systems of fixed dimension d, and take the form of inequalities. We find that the spin moment inequalities that test local hidden variables (Bell inequalities) can be violated for arbitrary d by optimized highly correlated nonmaximally entangled states provided the number of sites N is high enough. On the other hand, the spin inequalities for entanglement are violated and thus detect entanglement for such states, for arbitrary d and N, and with a violation that increases with N. We show that one of the moment entanglement inequalities can detect the entanglement of an arbitrary generalized multipartite Greenberger-Horne-Zeilinger state. Because they involve the natural observables for atomic systems, the relevant spin-operator correlations should be readily observable in trapped ultracold atomic gases and ion traps.

Zoned near-zero refractive index fishnet lens antenna: Steering millimeter waves  

SciTech Connect

A zoned fishnet metamaterial lens is designed, fabricated, and experimentally demonstrated at millimeter wavelengths to work as a negative near-zero refractive index lens suitable for compact lens antenna configurations. At the design frequency f?=?56.7?GHz (?{sub 0}?=?5.29?mm), the zoned fishnet metamaterial lens, designed to have a focal length FL?=?9?{sub 0}, exhibits a refractive index n?=??0.25. The focusing performance of the diffractive optical element is briefly compared with that of a non-zoned fishnet metamaterial lens and an isotropic homogeneous zoned lens made of a material with the same refractive index. Experimental and numerically-computed radiation diagrams of the fabricated zoned lens are presented and compared in detail with that of a simulated non-zoned lens. Simulation and experimental results are in good agreement, demonstrating an enhancement generated by the zoned lens of 10.7?dB, corresponding to a gain of 12.26?dB. Moreover, beam steering capability of the structure by shifting the feeder on the xz-plane is demonstrated.

Atomic structure of the {sigma}5 (210)/[001] symmetric tilt grain boundary in yttrium aluminum garnet  

SciTech Connect

The {Sigma}5(210)/[100] symmetric tilt grain boundary in YAG was produced by UHV diffusion bonding precisely oriented single crystals. The boundary has been characterized by HREM along two different directions, parallel and perpendicular to the tilt axis. Models of the atomic structure of the boundary were formed following the Coincident Site Lattice scheme. The resulting models are equivalent to twins formed at the atomic scale. The high resolution images show no rigid crystal translations away from the perfect mirror reflection relation. Comparison of the simulated images using the atomic model as input with the experimental images identifies the plane of mirror symmetry. The atomic model is shown to be in good agreement with the experimental images when viewed parallel to tilt axis, but disagrees with the images perpendicular to tilt axis. Agreement between simulated and experimental images can be improved by changing the composition of the grain boundary with respect to the bulk. To reach a more certain conclusion on the structure of the grain boundary will require additional theoretical calculations.

Limitations in solar module azimuth and tilt angles in building integrated photovoltaics at low latitude tropical sites in Brazil  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Photovoltaic (PV) generation depends directly on the amount of radiation received by solar modules at a given temperature, and annual irradiation varies according to site location and PV array position. In this paper, the limitations and the solar irradiation levels received by building surfaces in different positions (with azimuth and tilt angle variation) in capital cities in Brazil are shown, making use of the Brazilian global horizontal solar irradiation data provided by the SWERA (Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment) project. These data were processed to generate figures on the irradiation at various PV module orientations and slopes for each city, which show the relative radiation levels received on specific azimuth and tilt angles in relation to the ideal position. Results were validated using four real and operating PV systems. In general, variations in azimuth or slope did not cause large annual irradiation losses up to around 20 tilt angles. This shows to PV system planners that under these fairly flexible conditions it is possible to install PV on any orientation, keeping high levels of annual irradiation, and that limitations in orientation and tilt can be relatively low. It also allows a quick analysis of PV retrofit in building-applied photovoltaics (BAPV), when seeking the best building surfaces to incorporate PV.

Magnetic particles confined in a modulated channel: structural transitions tunable by tilting a magnetic field  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The ground state of colloidal magnetic particles in a modulated channel are investigated as function of the tilt angle of an applied magnetic field. The particles are confined by a parabolic potential in the transversal direction while in the axial direction a periodic substrate potential is present. By using Monte Carlo (MC) simulations, we construct a phase diagram for the different crystal structures as a function of the magnetic field orientation, strength of the modulated potential and the commensurability factor of the system. Interestingly, we found first and second order phase transitions between different crystal structures, which can be manipulated by the orientation of the external magnetic field. A re-entrant behavior is found between two- and four-chain configurations, with continuous second order transitions. Novel configurations are found consisting of frozen in solitons. By changing the orientation and/or strength of the magnetic field and/or the strength and the spatial frequency of the periodic substrate potential, the system transits through different phases.

Test Problem: Tilted Rayleigh-Taylor for 2-D Mixing Studies  

SciTech Connect

The 'tilted-rig' test problem originates from a series of experiments (Smeeton & Youngs, 1987, Youngs, 1989) performed at AWE in the late 1980's, that followed from the 'rocket-rig' experiments (Burrows et al., 1984; Read & Youngs, 1983), and exploratory experiments performed at Imperial College (Andrews, 1986; Andrews and Spalding, 1990). A schematic of the experiment is shown in Figure 1, and comprises a tank filled with light fluid above heavy, and then 'tilted' on one side of the apparatus, thus causing an 'angled interface' to the acceleration history due to rockets. Details of the configuration given in the next chapter include: fluids, dimensions, and other necessary details to simulate the experiment. Figure 2 shows results from two experiments, Case 110 (which is the source for this test problem) that has an Atwood number of 0.5, and Case 115 (a secondary source described in Appendix B), with Atwood of 0.9 Inspection of the photograph in Figure 2 (the main experimental diagnostic) for Case 110. reveals two main areas for mix development; 1) a large-scale overturning motion that produces a rising plume (spike) on the left, and falling plume (bubble) on the right, that are almost symmetric; and 2) a Rayleigh-Taylor driven mixing central mixing region that has a large-scale rotation associated with the rising and falling plumes, and also experiences lateral strain due to stretching of the interface by the plumes, and shear across the interface due to upper fluid moving downward and to the right, and lower fluid moving upward and to the left. Case 115 is similar but differs by a much larger Atwood of 0.9 that drives a strong asymmetry between a left side heavy spike penetration and a right side light bubble penetration. Case 110 is chosen as the source for the present test problem as the fluids have low surface tension (unlike Case 115) due the addition of a surfactant, the asymmetry small (no need to have fine grids for the spike), and there is extensive reasonable quality photographic data. The photographs in Figure 2 also reveal the appearance of a boundary layer at the left and right walls; this boundary layer has not been included in the test problem as preliminary calculations suggested it had a negligible effect on plume penetration and RT mixing. The significance of this test problem is that, unlike planar RT experiments such as the Rocket-Rig (Youngs, 1984), Linear Electric Motor - LEM (Dimonte, 1990), or the Water Tunnel (Andrews, 1992), the Tilted-Rig is a unique two-dimensional RT mixing experiment that has experimental data and now (in this TP) Direct Numerical Simulation data from Livescu and Wei. The availability of DNS data for the tilted-rig has made this TP viable as it provides detailed results for comparison purposes. The purpose of the test problem is to provide 3D simulation results, validated by comparison with experiment, which can be used for the development and validation of 2D RANS models. When such models are applied to 2D flows, various physics issues are raised such as double counting, combined buoyancy and shear, and 2-D strain, which have not yet been adequately addressed. The current objective of the test problem is to compare key results, which are needed for RANS model validation, obtained from high-Reynolds number DNS, high-resolution ILES or LES with explicit sub-grid-scale models. The experiment is incompressible and so is directly suitable for algorithms that are designed for incompressible flows (e.g. pressure correction algorithms with multi-grid); however, we have extended the TP so that compressible algorithms, run at low Mach number, may also be used if careful consideration is given to initial pressure fields. Thus, this TP serves as a useful tool for incompressible and compressible simulation codes, and mathematical models. In the remainder of this TP we provide a detailed specification; the next section provides the underlying assumptions for the TP, fluids, geometry details, boundary conditions (and alternative set-ups), initial conditions, and acceleration history (an

Recording and interpretation/analysis of tilt signals with five ASKANIA borehole tiltmeters at the KTB  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In June 2003 a large scale injection experiment started at the Continental Deep Drilling site (KTB) in Germany. A tiltmeter array was installed which consisted of five high resolution borehole tiltmeters of the ASKANIA type also equipped with three dimensional seismometers. For the next 11 months 86 000 m 3 were injected into the KTB pilot borehole 4000 m deep. The average injection rate was approximately 200 l ? min . The research objective was to observe and to analyzedeformation caused by the injection into the upper crust at the kilometer range. A new data acquisition system was developed by Geo-Research Center Potsdam (GFZ) to master the expected huge amount of seismic and tilt data. Furthermore it was necessary to develop a new preprocessing software called PREANALYSE for long-period time series. This software includes different useful functions such as step and spike correction interpolation filtering and spectral analysis. This worldwide unique installation offers the excellent opportunity of the separation of signals due to injection and due to environment by correlation of the data of the five stations with the ground water table and meteorological data.

The engineering of solar power applications, such as photovoltaic energy (PV) or thermal solar energy requires the knowledge of the solar resource available for the solar energy system. This solar resource is generally obtained from datasets, and is either measured by ground-stations, through the use of pyranometers, or by satellites. The solar irradiation data are generally not free, and their cost can be high, in particular if high temporal resolution is required, such as hourly data. In this work, we present an alternative method to provide free hourly global solar tilted irradiation data for the whole European territory through a web platform. The method that we have developed generates solar irradiation data from a combination of clear-sky simulations and weather conditions data. The results are publicly available for free through Soweda, a Web interface. To our knowledge, this is the first time that hourly solar irradiance data are made available online, in real-time, and for free, to the public. The ac...

10km) from INPE and LABSOLAR 10km) from INPE and LABSOLAR Dataset Summary Description (Abstract): Latitude tilted solar radiation in kWh/m2/day for 1 year organized into cells with 10km x 10km (Purpose): The BRASIL-SR model and the SPRING software (both developed by INPE -National Institute for Space Research) were used to produce the dataset and SHAPE files (Supplemental Information): The assessment of reliability levels of the BRASIL-SR model were performed through the evaluation of the deviations shown by the estimated values for solar radiation flux vis-à-vis the values measured at the surface (ground truth). This evaluation was done in two phases. The first phase consisted in an inter-comparison between the core radiation transfer models adopted by the SWERA Project to map the solar energy in the various countries participating in the project. The HELIOSAT model took part in this phase like benchmark due to its employment to map solar energy resources incountries from European Union. In the second phase, the solar flux estimates providedby the BRASIL-SR model were compared with measured values acquired at several solarimetric stations spread along the Brazilian territory

Well-to-wheel Energy Consumption and Pollutant Emissions Comparison between Electric and Non-electric Vehicles: a Modeling Approach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Although electric vehicles (EVs) gain more and more popularity these years, the issue on whether they are really more environmentally and ecologically sound than non-electric vehicles, e.g. gasoline and diesel fuel burned internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles has become a heat-debated one. This paper outlines an assessment model which intends to compare well-to-wheel energy consumption and pollutant emissions between \\{EVs\\} and non-electric ones, using Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) technique based on the potential environmental and ecological impact. The modeling in this case predicted that from the perspective of total energy consumption and pollution, further improvements are still necessary for the feasibility and widespread use of EVs.

Efficient time-optimal two-corner trajectory planning algorithm for differential-driven wheeled mobile robots with bounded motor control inputs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract We propose an efficient time-optimal trajectory planning algorithm for differential-driven wheeled mobile robots with bounded motor control inputs in the environment with cranked road where two corners with arbitrary angles exist. Based on dynamics for differential-driven wheeled mobile robots including actuating motors as well as on the bangbang principle for time-optimality, we plan the time-optimal free path trajectory which unifies path planning and trajectory generation. Thus it improves total time significantly while handling obstacle avoidance. We divide our trajectory into three sections and then divide each section into an appropriate number of subsections to make five subsections in total. We introduce the concept of transition angle to solve the problem with formulating search loops efficiently. Numerical results are provided to validate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.

Well-to-Wheels analysis of landfill gas-based pathways and their addition to the GREET model.  

SciTech Connect

Today, approximately 300 million standard cubic ft/day (mmscfd) of natural gas and 1600 MW of electricity are produced from the decomposition of organic waste at 519 U.S. landfills (EPA 2010a). Since landfill gas (LFG) is a renewable resource, this energy is considered renewable. When used as a vehicle fuel, compressed natural gas (CNG) produced from LFG consumes up to 185,000 Btu of fossil fuel and generates from 1.5 to 18.4 kg of carbon dioxide-equivalent (CO{sub 2}e) emissions per million Btu of fuel on a 'well-to-wheel' (WTW) basis. This compares with approximately 1.1 million Btu and 78.2 kg of CO{sub 2}e per million Btu for CNG from fossil natural gas and 1.2 million Btu and 97.5 kg of CO{sub 2}e per million Btu for petroleum gasoline. Because of the additional energy required for liquefaction, LFG-based liquefied natural gas (LNG) requires more fossil fuel (222,000-227,000 Btu/million Btu WTW) and generates more GHG emissions (approximately 22 kg CO{sub 2}e /MM Btu WTW) if grid electricity is used for the liquefaction process. However, if some of the LFG is used to generate electricity for gas cleanup and liquefaction (or compression, in the case of CNG), vehicle fuel produced from LFG can have no fossil fuel input and only minimal GHG emissions (1.5-7.7 kg CO{sub 2}e /MM Btu) on a WTW basis. Thus, LFG-based natural gas can be one of the lowest GHG-emitting fuels for light- or heavy-duty vehicles. This report discusses the size and scope of biomethane resources from landfills and the pathways by which those resources can be turned into and utilized as vehicle fuel. It includes characterizations of the LFG stream and the processes used to convert low-Btu LFG into high-Btu renewable natural gas (RNG); documents the conversion efficiencies and losses of those processes, the choice of processes modeled in GREET, and other assumptions used to construct GREET pathways; and presents GREET results by pathway stage. GREET estimates of well-to-pump (WTP), pump-to-wheel (PTW), and WTW energy, fossil fuel, and GHG emissions for each LFG-based pathway are then summarized and compared with similar estimates for fossil natural gas and petroleum pathways.

An improved energy management strategy for FC/UC hybrid electric vehicles propelled by motor-wheels  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The hybridization of the fuel-cell electric-vehicle (FCEV) by a second energy source has the advantage of improving the system's dynamic response and efficiency. Indeed, an ultra-capacitor (UC) system used as an energy storage device fulfills the FC slowest dynamics during fast power transitions and recovers the braking energy. In FC/UC hybrid vehicles, the search for a suitable power management approach is one of the main objectives. In this paper, an improved control strategy managing the active power distribution between the two energy sources is proposed. The UC reference power is calculated through the DC link voltage regulation. For the FC power demand, an algorithm with five operating modes is developed. This algorithm, depending on the UC state of charge (SOC) and the vehicle speed level, minimizes the FC power demand transitions and therefore ameliorates its durability. The traction power is provided using two permanent magnetic synchronous motor-wheels to free more space in the vehicle. The models of the FC/UC vehicle system parts and the control strategy are developed using MATLAB software. Simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed energy management strategy.

Theoretical considerations of static and dynamic characteristics of air foil thrust bearing with tilt and slip flow  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The thrust pad of the rotor is used to sustain the axial force generated due to the pressure difference between the compressor and turbine sides of turbomachinery such as gas turbines, compressors, and turbochargers. Furthermore, this thrust pad has a role to maintain and determines the attitude of the rotor. In a real system, it also helps reinforce the stiffness and damping of the journal bearing. This study was performed for the purpose of analyzing the characteristics of the air foil thrust bearing. The model for the air foil thrust bearing used in this study is composed of two parts: one is an inclined plane, which plays a role in increasing the load carrying capacity using the physical wedge effect, and the other is a flat plane. This study mainly consists of three parts. First, the static characteristics were obtained over the region of the thin air film using the finite-difference method (FDM) and the bump foil characteristics using the finite-element method (FEM). Second, the analysis of the dynamic characteristics was conducted by perturbation method. For more exact calculation, the rarefaction gas coefficients perturbed about the pressure and film thickness were taken into consideration. At last, the static and dynamic characteristics of the tilting condition of the thrust pad were obtained. Furthermore, the load carrying capacity and torque were calculated for both tilting and nontilting conditions. From this study, several results were presented: (1) the stiffness and damping of the bump foil under the condition of the various bump parameters, (2) the load carrying capacity and bearing torque at the tilting state, (3) the bearing performance for various bearing parameters, and (4) the effects considering the rarefaction gas coefficients.

Tilting for perfusion: Head-up position during cardiopulmonary resuscitation improves brain flow in a porcine model of cardiac arrest  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractIntroduction Cerebral perfusion is compromised during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We hypothesized that beneficial effects of gravity on the venous circulation during CPR performed in the head-up tilt (HUT) position would improve cerebral perfusion compared with supine or head-down tilt (HDT). Methods Twenty-two pigs were sedated, intubated, anesthetized, paralyzed and placed on a tilt table. After 6min of untreated ventricular fibrillation (VF) CPR was performed on 14 pigs for 3min with an automated CPR device called LUCAS (L) plus an impedance threshold device (ITD), followed by 5min of L-CPR+ITD at 0 supine, 5min at 30 HUT, and then 5min at 30 HDT. Microspheres were used to measure organ blood flow in 8 pigs. L-CPR+ITD was performed on 8 additional pigs at 0, 20, 30, 40, and 50 HUT. Results Coronary perfusion pressure was 192mmHg at 0 vs. 303 at 30 HUT (pBrainblood flow was 0.190.04mlmin?1g?1 at 0 vs. 0.270.04 at 30 HUT (p=0.01) and 0.140.06 at 30 HDT (p=0.16). Heart blood flow was not significantly different between interventions. With 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 HUT, ICP values were 212, 162, 102, 52, 02, ?52 respectively, (pbrain flow whereas HUT significantly lowered ICP and improved cerebral perfusion. Further studies are warranted to explore this new resuscitation concept.

An analysis of vehicle behaviour in a cross wind  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The effects of suspension properties, particularly roll steer and compliance steer, on vehicle stability in a cross wind are examined using measurements of the vehicle's roll angle and steer angles of the front and rear wheels when the vehicle is subjected to a lateral wind. Further consideration is made with a simulation model. The following main results are obtained: The roll angle and the cornering forces of the front and rear wheels exhibits a transient reversal of direction in a cross wind. Accompanying this vehicle behaviour, the roll steer and compliance steer of the rear wheels, in particular have substantially different effects on cross wind stability.

Well-to-wheels analysis of energy use and greenhouse gas emissions of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.  

SciTech Connect

Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) are being developed for mass production by the automotive industry. PHEVs have been touted for their potential to reduce the US transportation sector's dependence on petroleum and cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by (1) using off-peak excess electric generation capacity and (2) increasing vehicles energy efficiency. A well-to-wheels (WTW) analysis - which examines energy use and emissions from primary energy source through vehicle operation - can help researchers better understand the impact of the upstream mix of electricity generation technologies for PHEV recharging, as well as the powertrain technology and fuel sources for PHEVs. For the WTW analysis, Argonne National Laboratory researchers used the Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation (GREET) model developed by Argonne to compare the WTW energy use and GHG emissions associated with various transportation technologies to those associated with PHEVs. Argonne researchers estimated the fuel economy and electricity use of PHEVs and alternative fuel/vehicle systems by using the Powertrain System Analysis Toolkit (PSAT) model. They examined two PHEV designs: the power-split configuration and the series configuration. The first is a parallel hybrid configuration in which the engine and the electric motor are connected to a single mechanical transmission that incorporates a power-split device that allows for parallel power paths - mechanical and electrical - from the engine to the wheels, allowing the engine and the electric motor to share the power during acceleration. In the second configuration, the engine powers a generator, which charges a battery that is used by the electric motor to propel the vehicle; thus, the engine never directly powers the vehicle's transmission. The power-split configuration was adopted for PHEVs with a 10- and 20-mile electric range because they require frequent use of the engine for acceleration and to provide energy when the battery is depleted, while the series configuration was adopted for PHEVs with a 30- and 40-mile electric range because they rely mostly on electrical power for propulsion. Argonne researchers calculated the equivalent on-road (real-world) fuel economy on the basis of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency miles per gallon (mpg)-based formulas. The reduction in fuel economy attributable to the on-road adjustment formula was capped at 30% for advanced vehicle systems (e.g., PHEVs, fuel cell vehicles [FCVs], hybrid electric vehicles [HEVs], and battery-powered electric vehicles [BEVs]). Simulations for calendar year 2020 with model year 2015 mid-size vehicles were chosen for this analysis to address the implications of PHEVs within a reasonable timeframe after their likely introduction over the next few years. For the WTW analysis, Argonne assumed a PHEV market penetration of 10% by 2020 in order to examine the impact of significant PHEV loading on the utility power sector. Technological improvement with medium uncertainty for each vehicle was also assumed for the analysis. Argonne employed detailed dispatch models to simulate the electric power systems in four major regions of the US: the New England Independent System Operator, the New York Independent System Operator, the State of Illinois, and the Western Electric Coordinating Council. Argonne also evaluated the US average generation mix and renewable generation of electricity for PHEV and BEV recharging scenarios to show the effects of these generation mixes on PHEV WTW results. Argonne's GREET model was designed to examine the WTW energy use and GHG emissions for PHEVs and BEVs, as well as FCVs, regular HEVs, and conventional gasoline internal combustion engine vehicles (ICEVs). WTW results are reported for charge-depleting (CD) operation of PHEVs under different recharging scenarios. The combined WTW results of CD and charge-sustaining (CS) PHEV operations (using the utility factor method) were also examined and reported. According to the utility factor method, the share of vehicle miles trav

Effect of ninety degree elbow on the accuracy of a non-magnetic, insertion paddle wheel flowmeter  

SciTech Connect

Monitoring energy use in commercial and institutional buildings often requires measurement of chilled and hot water. For retrofit applications, insertion flowmeters are an economical alternative to fixed flow meters such as orifices or venturi meters. The insertion flow meters can be hot tapped into the piping without having to shut down operations. A major problem encountered in retrofit applications of flow meters is finding a location in a pipe where there is at least 10 to 15 diameters of straight pipe. Piping in buildings is constrained by the layout and design of the building, there may only be short runs of straight pipe where flowmeters can be installed. The purpose of this study was to quantify the measurement error caused by installation of flow meter downstream of a 90 degree elbow. The flowmeter was an insertion type, nonmagnetic, paddle wheel flow meter. Meter locations from 2.1 to 9.8 diameters downstream of a 90 degree elbow were studied in a 0.1 in diameter pipe for flow velocities ranging from 0.3 to 3 m/s. At each location downstream of the elbow, the meter was also rotated in 45 increments (from 0 to 180{degree}) around the circumference of the pipe to evaluate choice of circumferential location on flow error. Output from the flowmeter was compared to results obtained with load cells on a 38 m{sup 3} tank that collected the flow pumped through the test section. Results were presented in terms of percent error relative to the load cells as a function of downstream location, circumferential rotation angle, and velocity. The largest errors occurred at 2.1 diameters downstream of the elbow and 180 degree rotation angle. Velocity of the water appeared to have little influence on the results for velocities ranging from 0.3 to 3 m/s. Uncertainty results for all major measurement points are also presented.

Study of the interaction of solutes with ?5 (013) tilt grain boundaries in iron using density-functional theory  

SciTech Connect

Substitutional alloying elements significantly affect the recrystallization and austenite-ferrite phase transformation rates in steels. The atomistic mechanisms of their interaction with the interfaces are still largely unexplored. Using density functional theory, we determine the segregation energies between commonly used alloying elements and the ?5 (013) tilt grain boundary in bcc iron. We find a strong solute-grain boundary interaction for Nb, Mo, and Ti that is consistent with experimental observations of the effects of these alloying elements on delaying recrystallization and the austenite-to-ferrite transformation in low-carbon steels. In addition, we compute the solute-solute interactions as a function of solute pair distance in the grain boundary, which suggest co-segregation for these large solutes at intermediate distances in striking contrast to the bulk.

A self-consistent regime of generation of terahertz radiation by an optical pulse with a tilted intensity front  

SciTech Connect

We derived a self-consistent system of nonlinear wave equations describing the terahertz generation in dielectric uniaxial crystals by optical pulsed radiation with a tilted wavefront. The numerical analysis of the system of equations showed that the generation of a broadband one-period terahertz signal is accompanied by a red shift of the carrier frequency of the optical pulse, the magnitude of the shift being proportional to the pulse intensity. The generation efficiency with respect to energy reached a maximum at a certain distance of propagation in the crystal, after which the efficiency decreased. A satisfactory agreement was obtained between theoretical calculations and experimental data of other investigations. (generation of terahertz radiation)

An isoviscous, isothermal model investigating the influence of hydrostatic recesses on a spring-supported tilting pad thrust bearing  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Tilting-pad hydrodynamic thrust bearings are used in hydroelectric power stations around the world, reliably supporting turbines weighing hundreds of tonnes, over decades of service. Newer designs incorporate hydrostatic recesses machined into the sector-shaped pads.With the aid of external oil pressurisation at low rotational speeds, oil film thickness is increased, thereby reducing friction and wear to the benefit of service life and reliability. It follows that older generating plants, lacking such assistance, stand to benefit from being retrofitted with hydrostatic lubrication systems. The design process is not trivial however the need to increase the groove area to permit spontaneous lifting of the turbine under hydrostatic operation conflicts with the need to preserve performance of the original plane pad design. A haphazardly designed recess can change the pressure distribution of the oil film in such a way as to tilt the pad away from its optimum position. This may lead to reduced oil film thickness and increased temperature, which is concomitant with reduced mechanical efficiency and increased risk of damage to the bearing surfaces. It is therefore, inadvisable to ignore the presence of grooves in simulations. In this work, a numerical study of a sector-shaped pad is undertaken to understand how recess size and shape can affect the performance of a typical bearing. An isoviscous, isothermal model has been used in this instance because the operating conditions of the turbine in question were shown not to be severe enough to warrant the computational expense of a fully coupled thermoelastic hydrodynamic model.

Design study of a new antenna system for steering microwave beam in electron cyclotron heating/current drive system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The reflector driven in the linear motion to steer the microwave beam for electron cyclotron heating/current drive system, which has considerable merits, especially for reactor environments, has been studied in design. In a typical design, a microwave beam launched from the end of a waveguide is reflected at a concave mirror following a fixed flat mirror. The injection angle can be changed by varying a point of reflection on the concave mirror because of the transition of the normal angle of the concave mirror. The point of reflection is easily controlled by the linear motion of the concave mirror. It is notable that mirror rotation is not required, and the inside of a robust driving shaft can be used to supply the coolant to the mirror. This indicates that the antenna can be designed without a rotation axis, bearings, and a flexible cooling tube close to the plasma which may require frequent maintenance or replacement in a highly radioactive environment. This study shows that the antenna driven in the linear motion has a potential to meet certain specifications, especially with regard to antenna size, steerable range of the beam angle, and beam quality for experiments in tokamaks and for fusion reactors. In the preliminary design trial for the ITER equatorial antenna, the concaved mirror of 0.3m in length having 1m curvature and stroke of 0.2m enables beam angle range of 2040 with beam radius of 0.06m at the EC resonance.

High-resolution diffraction for residual stress determination in the NiCrMoV wheel of an axial compressor for a heavy-duty gas turbine  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The wheel of an axial compressor for a heavy-duty gas turbine has been investigated for residual stresses (RS) evaluation of the teeth-section where SANS measurements have previously been performed. Such a component can contain internal RS, either due to the manufacturing process, or to the operating cycles fatigue. The constitutive material is a NiCrMoV steel to ASTM A 471 (type 2) norms (equivalent to B50A420B10); this material is usually adopted in the manufacturing of forged components for gas turbines. Internal radial and hoop RS have been determined, whose values are under the limit of 200kPa. Hoop RS, in general, resulted in higher value than the radial ones. The present experiment represents a particularly important step in the RS determination for gas turbine components, since the measurements reveal that the fatigue of the wheel is also a lifetime limiting factor although, in the same technological field, the available data in the actual neutron techniques literature mainly concern turbine buckets.

Well-to-wheels energy use and greenhouse gas emissions analysis of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.  

SciTech Connect

Researchers at Argonne National Laboratory expanded the Greenhouse gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy use in Transportation (GREET) model and incorporated the fuel economy and electricity use of alternative fuel/vehicle systems simulated by the Powertrain System Analysis Toolkit (PSAT) to conduct a well-to-wheels (WTW) analysis of energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). The WTW results were separately calculated for the blended charge-depleting (CD) and charge-sustaining (CS) modes of PHEV operation and then combined by using a weighting factor that represented the CD vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) share. As indicated by PSAT simulations of the CD operation, grid electricity accounted for a share of the vehicle's total energy use, ranging from 6% for a PHEV 10 to 24% for a PHEV 40, based on CD VMT shares of 23% and 63%, respectively. In addition to the PHEV's fuel economy and type of on-board fuel, the marginal electricity generation mix used to charge the vehicle impacted the WTW results, especially GHG emissions. Three North American Electric Reliability Corporation regions (4, 6, and 13) were selected for this analysis, because they encompassed large metropolitan areas (Illinois, New York, and California, respectively) and provided a significant variation of marginal generation mixes. The WTW results were also reported for the U.S. generation mix and renewable electricity to examine cases of average and clean mixes, respectively. For an all-electric range (AER) between 10 mi and 40 mi, PHEVs that employed petroleum fuels (gasoline and diesel), a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline (E85), and hydrogen were shown to offer a 40-60%, 70-90%, and more than 90% reduction in petroleum energy use and a 30-60%, 40-80%, and 10-100% reduction in GHG emissions, respectively, relative to an internal combustion engine vehicle that used gasoline. The spread of WTW GHG emissions among the different fuel production technologies and grid generation mixes was wider than the spread of petroleum energy use, mainly due to the diverse fuel production technologies and feedstock sources for the fuels considered in this analysis. The PHEVs offered reductions in petroleum energy use as compared with regular hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). More petroleum energy savings were realized as the AER increased, except when the marginal grid mix was dominated by oil-fired power generation. Similarly, more GHG emissions reductions were realized at higher AERs, except when the marginal grid generation mix was dominated by oil or coal. Electricity from renewable sources realized the largest reductions in petroleum energy use and GHG emissions for all PHEVs as the AER increased. The PHEVs that employ biomass-based fuels (e.g., biomass-E85 and -hydrogen) may not realize GHG emissions benefits over regular HEVs if the marginal generation mix is dominated by fossil sources. Uncertainties are associated with the adopted PHEV fuel consumption and marginal generation mix simulation results, which impact the WTW results and require further research. More disaggregate marginal generation data within control areas (where the actual dispatching occurs) and an improved dispatch modeling are needed to accurately assess the impact of PHEV electrification. The market penetration of the PHEVs, their total electric load, and their role as complements rather than replacements of regular HEVs are also uncertain. The effects of the number of daily charges, the time of charging, and the charging capacity have not been evaluated in this study. A more robust analysis of the VMT share of the CD operation is also needed.

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne), and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) updated their analysis of the well-to-wheels (WTW) greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, petroleum use, and the cost of ownership (excluding insurance, maintenance, and miscellaneous fees) of vehicle technologies that have the potential to significantly reduce GHG emissions and petroleum consumption. The analyses focused on advanced light-duty vehicle (LDV) technologies such as plug-in hybrid, battery electric, and fuel cell electric vehicles. Besides gasoline and diesel, alternative fuels considered include natural gas, advanced biofuels, electricity, and hydrogen. The Argonne Greenhouse Gases, Regulated Emissions, and Energy Use in Transportation (GREET) and Autonomie models were used along with the Argonne and NREL H2A models.

Simple solar spectral model for direct and diffuse irradiance on horizontal and tilted planes at the earth's surface for cloudless atmospheres  

SciTech Connect

A new, simple model for calculating clear-sky direct and diffuse spectral irradiance on horizontal and tilted surfaces is presented. The model is based on previously reported simple algorithms and on comparisons with rigorous radiative transfer calculations and limited outdoor measurements. Equations for direct normal irradiance are outlined; and include: Raleigh scattering; aerosol scattering and absorption; water vapor absorption; and ozone and uniformly mixed gas absorption. Inputs to the model include solar zenith angle, collector tilt angle, atmospheric turbidity, amount of ozone and precipitable water vapor, surface pressure, and ground albedo. The model calculates terrestrial spectra from 0.3 to 4.0 ..mu..m with approximately 10 nm resolution. A major goal of this work is to provide researchers with the capability to calculate spectral irradiance for different atmospheric conditions and different collector geometries using microcomputers. A listing of the computer program is provided.

F: Precision physics experiments with kaon beams F: Precision physics experiments with kaon beams The charged kaon experiment enabled by the Tevatron Stretcher and Project X could deliver a precision measurement of the K+→π+νv branching fraction that matches the small theoretical uncertainty. In parallel, the charged kaon experiment can probe many other decay channels including a precision measurement of K+→e+ν and a search for K+→π+μe which are both uniquely incisive probes of Terascale physics and beyond. The neutral kaon experiment driven by the enormous 8 GeV beam power provided by Project X could discover and measure the ultrarare KL→π0νv process. As the sensitivity reaches down to the Standard Model branching ratio of 3×10-11, several extensions of the Standard Model would be excluded or, even better, new Terascale phenomena would be detected. Upon attaining the Standard Model sensitivity the neutral kaon experiment then becomes sensitive to very high mass scale (>1000 TeV/c2) through precision measurement of the KL→π0νv branching fraction.

Powerful new scientific tools for particle physics and astrophysics now bring the answers to these compelling questions within reach. Along with astrophysical observations, particle accelerators offer different paths to the exploration of the physics of the Quantum Universe. At the energy frontier, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and the proposed International Linear Collider will take physicists into a new "Terascale" energy region and the discoveries it holds. High-intensity accelerators offer another pathway to discovery by opening the door into the world of neutrinos and precision physics, where physicists expect they will also find answers to Quantum Universe questions.

E: Muon-to-electron conversion in nuclei E: Muon-to-electron conversion in nuclei With the discovery of neutrino masses and mixings we have learned that neutral lepton flavor quantum numbers are violated in nature. An immediate question arises: "Does lepton flavor violation also occur at an appreciable rate with the charged leptons?" While the Standard Model predicts negligible rates for charged lepton flavor violation, many models, including various versions of supersymmetry, predict CLFV at an appreciable and potentially observable rate. Searches for CLFV are the most powerful and promising probes for new physics at and above the TeV scale. illustration The sensitivity to a new physics scale Λ in a μ→e conversion experiment in 48Ti that can probe a normalized capture rate of 10-17 and 10-19, and a μ→eγ search that is sensitive to a branching ratio of 10-13. The sensitivity is plotted as a function of κ, a parameter that interpolates between a fl avor transition magnetic moment-type operator (κ>1). Also depicted is the region already excluded from searches for both μ→eγ and μ→e conversion in 48Ti.

End-to-end conceptual design The "front end" of a muon collider and that of a neutrino factory have much in common. As neutrino factory work to date has shown, it is useful to develop an end-to-end design to illuminate the further simulation, design and hardware R&D needed for development of a facility; to derive early cost estimates; and to evaluate viability. Such exercises have been carried out. Proton driver To achieve luminosities of O(1034cm-2s-1) requires proton power on target of about 4 MW in the form of approximately 3 ns-long bunches each with of O(1014) protons. This driver would be an upgrade of Project X. Some accumulator, from an appropriate source, with fast extraction would need development.

4 4 Physics at the Intensity Frontier In This Section: Physics at the Intensity Frontier Neutrino science Precision physics Summary Physics at the Intensity Frontier The Standard Model of Particle Physics succeeds brilliantly at explaining the nature of the physical universe, but it leaves many open questions. Despite the development of myriad intriguing theories to address these questions, ultimately only experiment can light the way to discovery. In our own time, experiments at the energy frontier can search directly for new phenomena beyond the Standard Model. Alongside the compelling physics of Terascale explorations at the LHC and the ILC, another window on discovery has opened with the remarkable recent developments in neutrino science and with the ability to detect new physics phenomena in ultrarare events or in the small perturbations they induce in other processes. This chapter focuses on accelerator-based opportunities at the intensity frontier. Experiments in symmetry-violating processes and rare decays can provide windows into new mass scales of many thousands of TeV. Neutrino experiments may tell us about physics at even higher energies near unification or about an entirely new source of CP violation that may help explain the excess of matter over antimatter in the universe

Recommendations to the Technical Steering Panel regarding approach for estimating individual radiation doses resulting from releases of radionuclides to the Columbia River  

SciTech Connect

At the direction of the Technical Steering Panel (TSP) of the Hanford Environmental Dose Reconstruction (HEDR) Project, Battelle staff have reviewed and analyzed available data regarding possible historical radiation doses to individuals resulting from radionuclide releases to the Columbia River. The objective of this review was to recommend to the TSP the spatial and temporal scope and level of effort on Columbia River work to most effectively extend work performed in Phase I of the project (PNL 1991a, PNL 1991b) to meet the project objectives. A number of options were analyzed. Four stretches of the Columbia River and adjacent Pacific coastal waters were defined and investigated for four time periods. Radiation doses arising from ten potentially major exposure pathways were evaluated for each of the time/location combinations, and several alternative methods were defined for estimating the doses from each pathway. Preliminary cost estimates were also developed for implementing dose estimation activities for each of the possible combinations.

The bearing was a double acting, tilting pad with offset pivot, leading edge groove configuration using an AMS 4928 titanium collar and C18200 copper-chrome alloy pads with a No. 2 babbitt face. The bench tests successfully simulated the bearing failure and demonstrated a materials incompatibility. This was supported by visual examination, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray energy spectroscopy. A comparison of the bench test results to the compressor rig bearing failure is provided to support the report conclusions.

The Effect of Magnetic Field Tilt and Divergence on the Mass Flux and Flow Speed in a Line-Driven Stellar Wind  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We carry out an extended analytic study of how the tilt and faster-than-radial expansion from a magnetic field affect the mass flux and flow speed of a line-driven stellar wind. A key motivation is to reconcile results of numerical MHD simulations with previous analyses that had predicted non-spherical expansion would lead to a strong speed enhancement. By including finite-disk correction effects, a dynamically more consistent form for the non-spherical expansion, and a moderate value of the line-driving power index $\\alpha$, we infer more modest speed enhancements that are in good quantitative agreement with MHD simulations, and also are more consistent with observational results. Our analysis also explains simulation results that show the latitudinal variation of the surface mass flux scales with the square of the cosine of the local tilt angle between the magnetic field and the radial direction. Finally, we present a perturbation analysis of the effects of a finite gas pressure on the wind mass loss rate and flow speed in both spherical and magnetic wind models, showing that these scale with the ratio of the sound speed to surface escape speed, $a/v_{esc}$, and are typically 10-20% compared to an idealized, zero-gas-pressure model.

Compression and acceleration of electron bunches to high energies in the interference field of intense laser pulses with tilted amplitude fronts: concept and modelling  

SciTech Connect

A new concept of accelerating electrons by laser radiation is proposed, namely, direct acceleration by a laser field under the conditions of interference of several relativistic-intensity laser pulses with amplitude fronts tilted by the angle 45 Degree-Sign with respect to the phase fronts. Due to such interference the traps moving with the speed of light arise that capture the electrons, produced in the process of ionisation of low-density gas by the same laser radiation. The modelling on the basis of solving the relativistic Newton equation with the appropriate Lorenz force shows that these traps, moving in space, successively collect electrons from the target, compress the resulting electron ensemble in all directions up to the dimensions smaller than the wavelength of the laser radiation and accelerate it up to the energies of the order of a few GeV per electron.

Tilting of the CuO6 octahedra in La1.83-xEu0.17SrxCuO4 as seen by Eu151 Mssbauer spectroscopy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Eu151 Mssbauer studies of La1.83-xEu0.17SrxCuO4 for 0<~x<~0.26 exhibit a quadrupole interaction at the Eu site whose magnitude eQVzz strongly depends on both the Sr content x and the temperature T. For a fixed temperature, a linear relationship is obtained between the quadrupole interaction and the averaged CuO6 octahedra tilting angle determined from diffraction studies. The unusually large temperature dependence of eQVzz strongly indicates a temperature dependence of the local structure. In contrast to recent studies of the local structure La2CuO4-type superconductors by means of x-ray-absorption and neutron-scattering techniques, our data give strong evidence that the local octahedra tilting in La1.83-xEu0.17SrxCuO4 corresponds well to the average tilting obtained by diffraction techniques.

Releases of Contaminants from Oak Ridge Facilities and Risks to Public Health; Final Report of the Oak Ridge Health Agreement Steering Panel  

SciTech Connect

In the early 1990s, concern about the Oak Ridge Reservation's past releases of contaminants to the environment prompted Tennessee?s public health officials to pursue an in-depth study of potential off-site health effects at Oak Ridge. This study, the Oak Ridge dose reconstruction, was supported by an agreement between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the State of Tennessee, and was overseen by a 12-member panel appointed by Tennessee's Commissioner of Health. The following report, "Releases of Contaminants from Oak Ridge Facilities and Risks to Public Health," was written by the Oak Ridge Health Agreement Steering Panel (ORHASP) for the following purposes: (1) to explain the components and process of the lengthy, complex study; (2) to summarize important study results in less technical language; and (3) to provide the State with the Panel's recommendations for future actions concerning the Oak Ridge communities. The dose reconstruction process involved the examination of thousands of historical records to obtain information relating to past operations at each facility. It resulted in hundreds of documents being declassified and provided an avenue for a complete public accounting of past practices and releases. Researchers used this information to identify released contaminants of concern, to estimate the quantity and timing of these releases, to evaluate the routes taken by contaminants through the environment to nearby populations, and to estimate the doses and health risks to exposed groups. The results suggest it is likely that some people's risks of developing various types of cancers or other health effects were increased because of the releases. Two groups were most likely to have been harmed: local children drinking milk, in the early 1950's, from a ?backyard? cow or goat that had grazed on pastures contaminated with iodine-131, and fetuses carried in the 1950's and early 1960's by women who routinely ate fish taken from nearby creeks and rivers contaminated with mercury and PCBs. More detailed dose and risk estimates, and associated uncertainties, are presented in seven technical reports. One way to easily locate them in OSTI's Information Bridge is by searching the "author field" for the name "Widner," since Mr. T.E. Widner was the principal investigator on this project.

LANGEVIN DYNAMICS OF THE TWO STAGE MELTING TRANSITION OF VORTEX MATTER IN Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}CaCu{sub 2}O{sub 8+{delta}} IN THE PRESENCE OF STRAIGHT AND OF TILTED COLUMNAR DEFECTS  

SciTech Connect

In this paper we use London Langevin molecular dynamics simulations to investigate the vortex matter melting transition in the highly anisotropic high-temperature superconductor material Bi{sub 2}Sr{sub 2}CaCu{sub 2}O{sub 8+{delta}}#14; in the presence of low concentration of columnar defects (CDs). We reproduce with further details our previous results obtained by using Multilevel Monte Carlo simulations that showed that the melting of the nanocrystalline vortex matter occurs in two stages: a first stage melting into nanoliquid vortex matter and a second stage delocalization transition into a homogeneous liquid. Furthermore, we report on new dynamical measurements in the presence of a current that identifies clearly the irreversibility line and the second stage delocalization transition. In addition to CDs aligned along the c-axis we also simulate the case of tilted CDs which are aligned at an angle with respect to the applied magnetic field. Results for CDs tilted by 45{degree} with respect to c-axis show that the locations of the melting and delocalization transitions are not affected by the tilt when the ratio of flux lines to CDs remains constant. On the other hand we argue that some dynamical properties and in particular the position of the irreversibility line should be affected.

Dynamical steering in an electron transfer surface reaction: Oriented NO(v = 3, 0.08 < E{sub i} < 0.89 eV) relaxation in collisions with a Au(111) surface  

SciTech Connect

We report measurements of the incidence translational energy dependence of steric effects in collisions of NO(v = 3) molecules with a Au(111) surface using a recently developed technique to orient beams of vibrationally excited NO molecules at incidence energies of translation between 0.08 and 0.89 eV. Incidence orientation dependent vibrational state distributions of scattered molecules are detected by means of resonance enhanced multiphoton ionization spectroscopy. Molecules oriented with the N-end towards the surface exhibit a higher vibrational relaxation probability than those oriented with the O-end towards the surface. This strong orientation dependence arises from the orientation dependence of the underlying electron transfer reaction responsible for the vibrational relaxation. At reduced incidence translational energy, we observe a reduced steric effect. This reflects dynamical steering and re-orientation of the NO molecule upon its approach to the surface.

M/L{sub B} AND COLOR EVOLUTION FOR A DEEP SAMPLE OF M* CLUSTER GALAXIES AT z {approx} 1: THE FORMATION EPOCH AND THE TILT OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PLANE , ,  

SciTech Connect

We have measured velocity dispersions ({sigma}) for a sample of 36 galaxies with J < 21.2 or M{sub r} < -20.6 mag in MS 1054-03, a massive cluster of galaxies at z = 0.83. Our data are of uniformly high quality down to our selection limit, our 16 hr exposures typically yielding errors of only {delta}({sigma}) {approx} 10% for L* and fainter galaxies. By combining our measurements with data from the literature, we have 53 cluster galaxies with measured dispersions, and HST/ACS-derived sizes, colors and surface brightness. This sample is complete for the typical L* galaxy at z {approx} 1, unlike most previous z {approx} 1 cluster samples which are complete only for the massive cluster members (>10{sup 11} M{sub sun}). We find no evidence for a change in the tilt of the fundamental plane (FP). Nor do we find evidence for evolution in the slope of the color-{sigma} relation and M/L{sub B} -{sigma} relations; measuring evolution at a fixed {sigma} should minimize the impact of structural evolution found in other work. The M/L{sub B} at fixed {sigma} evolves by {Delta}log{sub 10} M/L{sub B} = -0.50 {+-} 0.03 between z = 0.83 and z = 0.02 or dlog{sub 10} M/L{sub B} = -0.60 {+-} 0.04 dz, and we find {Delta}(U - V){sub z} = -0.24 {+-} 0.02 mag at fixed {sigma} in the rest frame, matching the expected evolution in M/L{sub B} within 2.25 standard deviations. The implied formation redshift from both the color and M/L{sub B} evolution is z{sub *} = 2.0 {+-} 0.2 {+-} 0.3(sys), during the epoch in which the cosmic star formation activity peaked, with the systematic uncertainty showing the dependence of z{sub *} on the assumptions we make about the stellar populations. The lack of evolution in either the tilt of the FP or in the M/L-{sigma} and color-{sigma} relations imply that the formation epoch depends weakly on mass, ranging from z{sub *} = 2.3{sup +1.3}{sub -0.3} at {sigma} = 300 km s{sup -1} to z{sub *} = 1.7{sup +0.3}{sub -0.2} at {sigma} = 160 km s{sup -1} and implies that the initial mass function similarly varies slowly with galaxy mass.

Comment on Tilting of the CuO6 octahedra in La1.83-xEu0.17SrxCuO4 as seen by 151Eu Mssbauer spectroscopy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We discuss the different characteristic time scales of the x-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS), ?X, and Mssbauer spectroscopy (MS), ?MS, techniques for structural determination at small-length scales. We show that XAFS and MS can measure different local atomic arrangements in La1.83-xEu0.17SrxCuO4 provided the local structural units are dynamical. Combined knowledge from these complementary techniques is used to determine that the local tilts of the CuO6 octahedra do not vanish with temperature but are dynamic, with the oxygen atoms at the apex positions [O(2)] hopping among local minima of the energys surface. Evidence is found for a crossover between different time domains in which the hopping time, ?0, changes from ?0?MS. We conclude that the Mssbauer results [Phys. Rev. B 54, R800 (1996)], contrary to the authors conclusions, do not contradict our XAFS results [Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 439 (1996)].

Embracing competitive renaissance by steering innovation velocity  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Business innovation has been the mother of firms' success, both for sustenance or as growth strategy. Intrinsic and extrinsic desires to be innovative have been the driving forces for entrepreneurial leaders. Precision tool casting (PTC) is known for transforming metal with 'focus on customers'. It combines available technologies that offer customers finesse over competition. The company was initiated by four people with a plasma furnace imported from the USA. Foreign markets were never explored and this was the turning point for PTC in its very first phase. PTC started developing castings for those American and European companies, which had some sort of strategic alliance with their Indian counterpart. The focus was on top ten global firms who were the end users of castings. All desired processes and product innovations were brought around the business model that supported PTC's innate desire to be the supplier of quality castings to the benchmarked firms.

A Highly Agile Ground Assessment Robot (HAGAR) for military battlefield and support missions  

SciTech Connect

A mobile robotic vehicle with potential for use in military field applications is described. Based on a Sandia design intended for use in exploration of the Lunar surface, the Highly Agile Ground Assessment Robot (HAGAR) is a four wheeled all-wheel-drive dual-body vehicle. A uniquely simple method of chassis articulation is employed which allows all four wheels to remain in contact with the ground, even while operating in very rough terrain and climbing over obstacles as large as a wheel diameter. Skid steering and modular construction are used to produce a simple, rugged, lightweight, highly agile mobility chassis with a reduction in the number of parts required when compared to conventional vehicle designs for military battlefield and support missions. The design configuration, mobility parameters, potential mission configurations, and performance of existing and proposed HAGAR prototypes are discussed.

The self-stabilising dynamics of bicycles  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We analyse the classical problem of the stability of bicycles when moving quickly and upright. Developing a lean causes the front wheel to turn thereby setting the bicycle instantaneously into circular motion. The centripetal force associated with the lean-dependent turning circle gives a restoring torque which corrects the lean. The force also helps self-steer the front wheel, ensuring the bicycle continues in an essentially straight path. We give the frequency of lean oscillations about the vertical executed during riding. As in the literature, we discuss the neglect of gyroscopic effects, which experiment suggests are negligible.

CLEAN HYDROGEN TECHNOLOGY FOR 3-WHEEL TRANSPORTATION IN INDIA  

SciTech Connect

Hydrogen is a clean burning, non-polluting transportation fuel. It is also a renewable energy carrier that can be produced from non-fossil fuel resources such as solar, wind and biomass. Utilizing hydrogen as an alternative fuel for vehicles will diversify the resources of energy, and reduce dependence on oil in the transportation sector. Additionally, clean burning hydrogen fuel will also alleviate air pollution that is a very severe problem in many parts of world, especially major metropolitan areas in developing countries, such as India and China. In our efforts to foster international collaborations in the research, development, and demonstration of hydrogen technologies, through a USAID/DOE cost-shared project, Energy Conversion Devices, Inc.,(www.ovonic.com) a leading materials and alternative energy company, in collaboration with Bajaj Auto Limited, India's largest three-wheeler taxi manufacturer, has successfully developed and demonstrated prototype hydrogen ICE three-wheelers in the United States and India. ECD's proprietary Ovonic solid-state hydrogen storage technology is utilized on-board to provide a means of compact, low pressure, and safe hydrogen fuel. These prototype hydrogen three-wheelers have demonstrated comparable performance to the original CNG version of the vehicle, achieving a driving range of 130 km. The hydrogen storage system capable of storing 1 kg hydrogen can be refilled to 80% of its capacity in about 15 minutes at a pressure of 300 psi. The prototype vehicles developed under this project have been showcased and made available for test rides to the public at exhibits such as the 16th NHA annual meeting in April 2005, Washington, DC, and the SIAM (Society of Indian Automotive Manufacturers) annual conference in August 2005, New Delhi, India. Passengers have included members of the automotive industry, founders of both ECD and Bajaj, members of the World Bank, the Indian Union Minister for Finance, the President of the Asia Development Bank, members of USAID, USDOE and many other individuals, all of whom have had praise for the vehicle and the technology. The progress made through this phase I work and the importance of hydrogen three-wheelers has also resulted in extensive press coverage by the news media around the world.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Titan is a very interesting target in deep space exploration. With its solid surface on which a rover can easily travel and its methane lakes which can be sailed it is the ideal target for a deep space mission which includes a mobile platform. In the present paper the general layout of a rover for a mission to Titan is studied, dealing with the mobility, power generation and trajectory control issues. A four-wheels configuration with slip steering was chosen; to compare this solution with the more conventional strategy based on steering wheels, simulations were performed on some trajectories computed through the well known potential method, using both slip steering and conventional steering control, for different vehicle speeds. The comparison between the simulated trajectories allows to state the adequateness of the proposed approach. The results here obtained apply not only to a future mission to Titan, but also to other missions designed for the exploration of the satellites of the outer planets having a size comparable with that of Titan and the largest Kuiper belt objects like Pluto and 136472 Makemake.

Behaviour based planning and control of leader follower formations in wheeled mobile robots  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper describes the development of a distributed planning and control strategy for multiple mobile robots in a leader-follower formation framework, which combines together formation planning, navigation and active obstacle avoidance. A layered formation control architecture consisting of functional behaviours based on the relative motion states of the robots, classified into two levels is developed. The supervisor level in the framework handles the higher-level missions such as formation and inter-robot communication, and the lower level deals with the dynamic control of robots during navigation. Dynamic role switching mechanism through the exchange of leadership is incorporated in this work to tackle the problem of obstacle avoidance in the follower path. A state based modelling framework, where the functional behaviours/motion states of the layered approach are modelled using the augmented finite state machine (AFSM) concept, is also presented in this paper. The proposed approach is validated through state based simulations via Simulink/Stateflow environment and experiments using commercially available robot research platforms and the results obtained are discussed.

Age of Goose Rock Conglomerate, Wheele and Grant Counties, north-central Oregon  

SciTech Connect

A reconstruction of the geologic history and synthesis of the tectonic history of the Blue Mountains and Columbia Basin require that they know the age of key outcrops. The geological record in this entire area has been largely hidden by a thick blanket of Tertiary volcanic rocks. Only a few erosional inliers are available from which to interpret the pre-volcanic tectonic and sedimentation history. The Goose Rock Inlier, exposed along the John Day River in the Butler basin and Turtle Cove, is one such important outcrop. These exposures, consisting of a few hundred feet of fluvial sandstones and conglomerates, informally called the Goose Rock Conglomerate have received only limited attention from previous workers. Estimates of this unit's age range from Early Cretaceous to early Tertiary, on the basis of lithologic similarities with other named and unnamed formations in the area. The terrestrial nature of these strata and the apparent lack of fossils cause considerable difficulty in correlation with other Cretaceous sequences, which are largely marine. In the absence of scarcity of other fossils, palynology offers a unique alternative for making biochronological and paleoenvironmental interpretations.

This report describes test for air pollution control of flue gas and mercury as a result of coal combustion. The NYSEG Kintigh Station provided flue gas to the Center 100% of the time during this performance period. As the Kintigh Station operated with a variety of coals, fluctuations in the Center`s inlet SO{sub 2} concentrations were experienced. Safety training for the month was conducted by the O&M Superintendent, Maintenance Supervisor and Shift Supervisors. {open_quotes}Personal Protective Equipment{close_quotes} was the topic of the month. Inspections of the ECTC Facility and safety equipment (SCR air-packs, fire extinguishers, etc.) were completed and recorded this month. All systems were found to be in good condition. By continuing to emphasize safe work habits at the Center, we have raised the total number of days without a lost time injury to 1426 as of 4/30/96. The monthly safety meeting with the NYSEG Kintigh Station was held on April 30, 1996 with both NYSEG and ECTC representatives. The topics of discussion included an overview of NYSEG`s upcoming alternate fuel burn, an update on plant staffing changes, and a discussion of future safety training activities.
