Neutron Absorption Cross Sections of Pa231 and Pa232  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Activation studies of Pa231 in the graphite region of the Materials Testing Reactor have resulted in a value of 20015 barns for the thermal neutron absorption cross section of Pa231. Resonance neutron effects were eliminated by the method of cadmium differences and by conducting the irradiations in a region where the ratio of resonance to thermal neutrons is small.Measurements of the Pa232 and Pa233 activities produced in a highly intense neutron irradiation of Pa231 have resulted in a value of 760100 barns for the absorption cross section of Pa232.

Future perspectives of using hollow fibers as structured packings in light hydrocarbon distillation  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Olefin and paraffin are the largest chemical commodities. Furthermore, they are major building blocks for the petrochemical industry. Each year, petroleum refining, consumes 4,500 TBtu/yr in separation energy, making it one of the most energy-intensive industries in the United States). Just considering liquefied petroleum gas (ethane/propane/butane) and olefins (ethylene and propylene) alone, the distillation energy consumption is about 400 TBtu/yr in the US. Since petroleum distillation is a mature technology, incremental improvements in column/tray design will only provide a few percent improvements in the performance. However, each percent saving in net energy use amounts to savings of 10 TBtu/yr and reduces CO{sub 2} emissions by 0.2 MTon/yr. In practice, distillation columns require 100 to 200 trays to achieve the desired separation. The height of a transfer unit (HTU) of conventional packings is typical in the range of 36-60 inch. Since 2006, we had explored using several non-selective membranes as the structured packings to replace the conventional packing materials used in propane and propylene distillation. We obtained the lowest HTU of < 8 inch for the hollow fiber column, which was >5 times shorter than that of the conventional packing materials. In 2008, we also investigated this type of packing materials in iso-/n-butane distillation. Because of a slightly larger relative volatility of iso-/n-butane than that of propane/propylene, a wider and a more stable operational range was obtained for the iso-/n-butane pair. However, all of the experiments were conducted on a small scale with flowrate of < 25 gram/min. Recently, we demonstrated this technology on a larger scale (<250 gram/min). Within the loading range of F-factor < 2.2 Pa{sup 0.5}, a pressure drop on the vapor side is below 50 mbar/m, which suggests that the pressure drop of hollow fibers packings is not an engineering barrier for the applications in distillations. The thermal stability study suggests that polypropylene hollow fibers are stable after a long time exposure to C{sub 2} - C{sub 4} mixtures. The effects of packing density on the separation efficiency will be discussed.

Pressure-induced phase transitions in Pa metal from first-principles theory  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Protactinium metal is shown to undergo a phase transition to the ?-U orthorhombic structure below 1 Mbar pressure. At higher pressures, the bct phase reenters in the phase diagram and at the highest pressures, an ideal hcp structure becomes stable. Hence, Pa undergoes a sequence of transitions; bct??-U?bct?hcp, with the first transition taking place at 0.25 Mbar and the subsequent ones above 1 Mbar. The bct??-U transition is triggered by the pressure-induced promotion of the spd valence states to 5f states. In this regard, Pa approaches uranium which at ambient conditions has one more 5f electron than Pa at similar conditions. At higher compression of Pa, the 5f band broadens and electrostatic interactions in combination with Born-Mayer repulsion become increasingly important and this drives Pa to gradually more close-packed structures. At ultrahigh pressures, the balance between electrostatic energy, Born-Mayer repulsion, and one-electron band energy stabilizes the hcp (ideal packing) structure. The electrostatic energy and Born-Mayer repulsion rule out open crystal structures under these conditions in Pa and between the close-packed structures, the hcp structure is shown to be stabilized by filling of the 5f band.

Valve stem and packing assembly  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A valve stem and packing assembly is provided in which a rotatable valve stem includes a first tractrix surface for sliding contact with a stem packing and also includes a second tractrix surface for sliding contact with a bonnet. Force is applied by means of a spring, gland flange, and gland on the stem packing so the stem packing seals to the valve stem and bonnet. This configuration serves to create and maintain a reliable seal between the stem packing and the valve stem. The bonnet includes a second complementary tractrix surface for contacting the second sliding tractrix surface, the combination serving as a journal bearing for the entire valve stem and packing assembly. The journal bearing so configured is known as a Schiele's pivot. The Schiele's pivot also serves to maintain proper alignment of the valve stem with respect to the bonnet. Vertical wear between the surfaces of the Schiele's pivot is uniform at all points of contact between the second sliding tractrix surface and the second complementary tractrix surface of a bonnet. The valve stem is connected to a valve plug by means of a slip joint. The valve is opened and closed by rotating the valve stem. The slip joint compensates for wear on the Schiele's pivot and on the valve plug. A ledge is provided on the valve bonnet for the retaining nut to bear against. The ledge prevents over tightening of the retaining nut and the resulting excessive friction between stem and stem packing. 2 figures.

Ball Packings with Periodic Constraints  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We call a periodic ball packing in d-dimensional Euclidean space periodically (strictly) jammed with respect to a period lattice if there are no nontrivial motions of the balls that preserve the period (that maintain some period with smaller or equal volume). In particular, we call a packing consistently periodically (strictly) jammed if it is periodically (strictly) jammed on every one of its periods. After extending a well-known bar framework and stress condition to strict jamming, we prove that a packing with period Lambda is consistently strictly jammed if and only if it is strictly jammed with respect to Lambda and consistently periodically jammed. We next extend a result about rigid unit mode spectra in crystallography to characterize periodic jamming on sublattices. After that, we prove that there are finitely many strictly jammed packings of m unit balls and other similar results. An interesting example shows that the size of the first sublattice on which a packing is first periodically unjammed is not bounded. Finally, we find an example of a consistently periodically jammed packing of low density \\delta = \\frac{4 \\pi}{6 \\sqrt{3} + 11} + \\epsilon ~ 0.59, where \\epsilon is an arbitrarily small positive number. Throughout the paper, the statements for the closely related notions of periodic infinitesimal rigidity and affine infinitesimal rigidity for tensegrity frameworks are also given.

Cylinder valve packing nut studies  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The design, manufacture, and use of cylinder valve packing nuts have been studied to improve their resistance to failure from stress corrosion cracking. Stress frozen photoelastic models have been analyzed to measure the stress concentrations at observed points of failure. The load effects induced by assembly torque and thermal expansion of stem packing were observed by strain gaging nuts. The effects of finishing operations and heat treatment were studied by the strain gage hole boring and X-ray methods. Modifications of manufacturing and operation practices are reducing the frequency of stress corrosion failures.

Seepage Model for PA Including Dift Collapse  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this Analysis/Model Report (AMR) is to document the predictions and analysis performed using the Seepage Model for Performance Assessment (PA) and the Disturbed Drift Seepage Submodel for both the Topopah Spring middle nonlithophysal and lower lithophysal lithostratigraphic units at Yucca Mountain. These results will be used by PA to develop the probability distribution of water seepage into waste-emplacement drifts at Yucca Mountain, Nevada, as part of the evaluation of the long term performance of the potential repository. This AMR is in accordance with the ''Technical Work Plan for Unsaturated Zone (UZ) Flow and Transport Process Model Report'' (CRWMS M&O 2000 [153447]). This purpose is accomplished by performing numerical simulations with stochastic representations of hydrological properties, using the Seepage Model for PA, and evaluating the effects of an alternative drift geometry representing a partially collapsed drift using the Disturbed Drift Seepage Submodel. Seepage of water into waste-emplacement drifts is considered one of the principal factors having the greatest impact of long-term safety of the repository system (CRWMS M&O 2000 [153225], Table 4-1). This AMR supports the analysis and simulation that are used by PA to develop the probability distribution of water seepage into drift, and is therefore a model of primary (Level 1) importance (AP-3.15Q, ''Managing Technical Product Inputs''). The intended purpose of the Seepage Model for PA is to support: (1) PA; (2) Abstraction of Drift-Scale Seepage; and (3) Unsaturated Zone (UZ) Flow and Transport Process Model Report (PMR). Seepage into drifts is evaluated by applying numerical models with stochastic representations of hydrological properties and performing flow simulations with multiple realizations of the permeability field around the drift. The Seepage Model for PA uses the distribution of permeabilities derived from air injection testing in niches and in the cross drift to stochastically simulate the 3D flow of water in the fractured host rock (in the vicinity of potential emplacement drifts) under ambient conditions. The Disturbed Drift Seepage Submodel evaluates the impact of the partial collapse of a drift on seepage. Drainage in rock below the emplacement drift is also evaluated.

Electron affinity of Pa by 7p attachment and hyperfine structure constants for Pa-  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Valence shell relativistic configuration interaction calculations for the 7p attachment to the Pa I ground state yield one bound state, viz., Pa- 5f26d7s27p J=6, with electron affinity of 0.222 eV. We found no other Js for this configuration to be bound, nor are any of the Pa- 5f26d27s2 levels expected to be bound. The hyperfine structure constants for the Pa-231 bound state are A=741.3 MHz and B=1309 MHz. Although the core-valence correlation effects are absent the agreement between the theory (4736 cm-1) and experiment (4121 cm-1) for the position of the first excited state of Pa is good (15%). We review our previous studies for the np attachment in rare earths to systematically analyze the binding of np1/2 and np3/2 electrons, in these species. 1996 The American Physical Society.

Effect of packing material on methane activation in a dielectric barrier discharge reactor  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The conversion of methane is measured in a planar-type dielectric barrier discharge reactor using ?-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} (sphere), ?-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} (sphere), and ?-Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} (1620 mesh). Investigations on the surface properties and shape of the three packing materials clearly indicate that methane activation is considerably affected by the material used. Capacitances inside the discharge gap are estimated from chargevoltage plots, and a comparison of the generated and transferred charges for different packing conditions show that the difference in surface properties between ?- and ?-phase Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} affects the discharge characteristics. Moreover, all packing conditions show different charge characteristics that are related to the electron density. Finally, the packing material's shape affects the local electron temperature, which is strongly related to methane conversion. The combined results indicate that both microscale and macroscale variations in a packing material affect the discharge characteristics, and a packing material should be considered carefully for effective methane activation.

Close packing density and fracture strength of adsorbed polydisperse particle layers  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The close packing density of log-normal and bimodal distributed, surface-adsorbed particles or discs in 2D is studied by numerical simulation. For small spread in particle size, the system orders in a polycrystalline structure of hexagonal domains. The domain size and the packing density both decrease as the spread in particle size is increased up to 10.5+/-0.5%. From this point onwards the system becomes amorphous, and the close packing density increases again with spread in particle size. We argue that the polycrystalline and amorphous regions are separated by a Kosterlitz-Thouless-type phase transition. In the amorphous region we find the close packing density to vary proportional to the logarithm of the friction factor, or cooling rate. We also studied the fracture behaviour of surface layers of sintered particles. Fracture strength increases with spread in particle size, but the brittleness of the layers shows a minimum at the polycrystalline-amorphous transition. We further show that mixing distributions of big and small particles generally leads to weaker and more brittle layers, even though the close packing density is higher than for either of the particle types. We point out applications to foam stability by the Pickering mechanism.

Packing frustration in dense confined fluids  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Packing frustration for confined fluids, i.e., the incompatibility between the preferred packing of the fluid particles and the packing constraints imposed by the confining surfaces, is studied for a dense hard-sphere fluid confined between planar hard surfaces at short separations. The detailed mechanism for the frustration is investigated via an analysis of the anisotropic pair distributions of the confined fluid, as obtained from integral equation theory for inhomogeneous fluids at pair correlation level within the anisotropic Percus-Yevick approximation. By examining the mean forces that arise from interparticle collisions around the periphery of each particle in the slit, we calculate the principal components of the mean force for the density profile - each component being the sum of collisional forces on a particle's hemisphere facing either surface. The variations of these components with the slit width give rise to rather intricate changes in the layer structure between the surfaces, but, as shown in this paper, the basis of these variations can be easily understood qualitatively and often also semi-quantitatively. It is found that the ordering of the fluid is in essence governed locally by the packing constraints at each single solid-fluid interface. A simple superposition of forces due to the presence of each surface gives surprisingly good estimates of the density profiles, but there remain nontrivial confinement effects that cannot be explained by superposition, most notably the magnitude of the excess adsorption of particles in the slit relative to bulk.

By comparing new experimental results with calculations, it is shown that the levels above the [5,- 3, 0] ground-state band in Pa233 and Pa231 may be interpreted as resulting from the +[6, 6, 0], the 32+[6,5,1], and the 52+[6,4,2] bands involved in a three-band Coriolis interaction.

BatPaC - Battery Performance and Cost model - About BatPaC  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

About BatPaC About BatPaC The starting point for this work is based on the decades of battery design work headed by Paul Nelson at Argonne National Laboratory. These design models were based in Microsoft Office Excel® resulting in a flexible and straightforward format. The current effort builds on this previous experience by adding a manufacturing cost calculation as well as increasing the fidelity of the performance calculations all while maintaining efficient calculations (e.g. fractions of a second). The cost of a battery will change depending upon the materials chemistry, battery design, and manufacturing process. Therefore, it is necessary to account for all three areas with a bottom-up cost model. Other bottom-up cost models exist but are not generally available and have not been explicitly detailed in a public document. The motivation for our approach is based on a need for a battery performance and cost model that meets the following requirements:

Packed bed carburization of tantalum and tantalum alloy  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Packed bed carburization of a tantalum or tantalum alloy object. A method for producing corrosion-resistant tantalum or tantalum alloy objects is described. The method includes the steps of placing the object in contact with a carburizing pack, heating the packed object in vacuum furnace to a temperature whereby carbon from the pack diffuses into the object forming grains with tantalum carbide along the grain boundaries, and etching the surface of the carburized object. This latter step removes tantalum carbides from the surface of the carburized tantalum object while leaving the tantalum carbide along the grain boundaries.

Volatile Components from Packing Matrials, Rev. 2  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An outgassing study was conducted on five packing materials, comprising two experiments. These materials comprised 277-4 borated concrete, Borobond4 concrete, polyethylene bags, silica-filled silicone rubber seals, and silicone foam padding. The purpose was measure the volume of gases which diffuse from packaging materials when sealed in containers. Two heating profiles were used to study the offgassing quantities in a set of accelerated aging tests. It was determined that the concretes contain a large quantity of water. The plastic materials hold much less moisture, with the silicone materials even consuming water, possibly due to the presence of silica filler. Polyethylene tends to degrade as the temperature is elevated and the foam stiffens.

Evolving Design Rules for the Inverse Granular Packing Problem  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

If a collection of identical particles is poured into a container, different shapes will fill to different densities. But what is the shape that fills a container as close as possible to a pre-specified, desired density? We demonstrate a solution to this inverse-packing problem by framing it in the context of artificial evolution. By representing shapes as bonded spheres, we show how shapes may be mutated, simulated, and selected to produce particularly dense or loose packing aggregates, both with and without friction. Moreover, we show how motifs emerge linking these shapes together. The result is a set of design rules that function as an effective solution to the inverse packing problem for given packing procedures and boundary conditions. Finally, we show that these results are verified by experiments on 3D-printed prototypes used to make packings in the real world.

Morphological studies on block copolymer modified PA 6 blends  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Recent studies show that compounding polyamide 6 (PA 6) with a PA 6 polyether block copolymers made by reaction injection molding (RIM) or continuous anionic polymerization in a reactive extrusion process (REX) result in blends with high impact strength and high stiffness compared to conventional rubber blends. In this paper, different high impact PA 6 blends were prepared using a twin screw extruder. The different impact modifiers were an ethylene propylene copolymer, a PA PA 6 polyether block copolymer made by reaction injection molding and one made by reactive extrusion. To ensure good particle matrix bonding, the ethylene propylene copolymer was grafted with maleic anhydride (EPR-g-MA). Due to the molecular structure of the two block copolymers, a coupling agent was not necessary. The block copolymers are semi-crystalline and partially cross-linked in contrast to commonly used amorphous rubbers which are usually uncured. The combination of different analysis methods like atomic force microscopy (AFM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) gave a detailed view in the structure of the blends. Due to the partial cross-linking, the particles of the block copolymers in the blends are not spherical like the ones of ethylene propylene copolymer. The differences in molecular structure, miscibility and grafting of the impact modifiers result in different mechanical properties and different blend morphologies.

Excited states of the odd-odd nucleus 230Pa  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The completely unknown spectrum of excited states of the odd-odd nucleus 230Pa was studied employing the one-neutron transfer reaction 231Pa(d,t)230Pa at a beam energy of 22 MeV. The excitation energy and the cross section were measured for, in total, 81 states below 1.4 MeV. Level assignments of these states are based on a semiempirical model and comparison with theoretical predictions, based on distorted-wave Born approximation (DWBA) calculations for the cross sections. For 12 rotational bands the band-head energy and the rotational parameter are determined. The K quantum numbers and the Nilsson configurations are established. Empirical values for the Gallagher-Moszkowski splittings and for Newby shifts are obtained.

Electromagnetic transitions and ? decay of the 223Pa nucleus  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Actinides with N?132 present the best explored region of pear shape nuclei. Still almost no spectroscopic information is available for the heaviest elements, Z=9198, which are predicted to be octupole instable. The lack of data for the latter nuclei results from the high fission probability encountered in the heavy-ion reactions used to populate them. In order to overcome this handicap, an ?-decay tagging technique was used to identify ? rays in 223Pa produced through the 208Pb(19F,4n) reaction. A new value of 4.9(4) ms for the half-life of 223Pa was obtained as a by-product.

The new neutron deficient isotope 212Pa has been produced in the 182W(35Cl,5n) reaction at a beam energy of 182.5 MeV. Evaporation residues have been separated with the JAERI recoil mass separator and identified on the basis of time- and position-correlated ?-decay chains. The ? decay from the ground state of 212Pa has been observed with an ?-particle energy of 8.270(30) MeV and a half-life of 5.1-1.9+6.1 ms.

The hierarchical properties of contact networks in granular packings  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The topological structure resulting from the network of contacts between grains (contact network) is studied for very large samples of disorderly-packed monosized spheres with densities ranging from 0.58 to 0.64. The hierarchical organization of such a structure is studied by means of a topological map which starts from a given sphere and moves outwards in concentric shells through the contact network. We find that the topological density of disordered sphere packing is larger than the topological density of equivalent lattice sphere packings.

Transmission resonance spectroscopy in the third minimum of 232Pa  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The fission probability of 232Pa was measured as a function of the excitation energy in order to search for hyperdeformed (HD) transmission resonances using the (d,pf) transfer reaction on a radioactive 231Pa target. The experiment was performed at the Tandem accelerator of the Maier-Leibnitz Laboratory (MLL) at Garching using the 231Pa(d,pf) reaction at a bombarding energy of Ed=12 MeV and with an energy resolution of ?E=5.5keV. Two groups of transmission resonances have been observed at excitation energies of E*=5.7 and 5.9 MeV. The fine structure of the resonance group at E*=5.7 MeV could be interpreted as overlapping rotational bands with a rotational parameter characteristic to a HD nuclear shape (?2/2?=2.100.15 keV). The fission barrier parameters of 232Pa have been determined by fitting talys 1.2 nuclear reaction code calculations to the overall structure of the fission probability. From the average level spacing of the J=4 states, the excitation energy of the ground state of the third minimum has been deduced to be EIII=5.05?0.10+0.40 MeV.

Random packing of lines in a lattice cube  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A study is made of the random sequential packing of complete lines in a cube of integer lattice points, with side N. For N?15 exact packing fractions are computed. It is found that if line occupation attempts arrive as a spatial Poisson process the packing has two distinct phases; initially where large numbers of potential adsorption sites are blocked, and subsequently where no further blocking occurs so that filling is exponential in time. It is shown that the ratio of the durations of the blocking to the nonblocking phases falls to zero as N??. In this limit, the packing fraction at time t is ?(t)=34(1?e?t). The rapid switch between phases in large systems creates a dramatic fall in the packing rate at the start of the process. This becomes a discontinuity as N?? and is a consequence of the high aspect ratio of the packing objects. It provides a physical explanation for the diverging coefficients in expansions of ?(t) about t=0 for objects with diverging aspect ratio. After considering the three-dimensional case, the analysis is extended to d-dimensional cubes, for which it is conjectured that ?=d/2d?1 in the limit N??.

Numerical evaluation of the energetic performances of structured and random packed beds in regenerative thermal oxidizers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Regenerative thermal oxidizers (RTO) can be conveniently used to control volatile organic components (VOC) emissions, because of their thermal efficiency and cost effectiveness. In the RTO technology, beds of inert material are used in order to heat the polluted air by cooling burnt gases, through a sequence of cyclic operations which cut the fuel requirements. A computational 1D unsteady model, able to account for both structured and random packed bed regenerators, is developed and applied to realistic plant conditions. Process thermal efficiency and gas pressure drop are calculated as functions of the system geometry and operating parameters. The code can be usefully employed in the analysis and design of RTO systems and in order to choose the more suitable type of regenerator, structured or random packed bed (even considering various particle shapes). Energetic performances of both random and structured regenerators were compared, showing that the first ones exhibit a little higher thermal efficiency but also an elevated pressure drop, at a same value of exchange surface per unit volume of the bed. Random packed bed regenerators resulted less attractive from the energetic point of view and their usage is advisable if their lower cost satisfy economical requirements.

Pa0148 from Pseudomonas aeruginosa Catalyzes the Deamination of Adenine  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Four proteins from NCBI cog1816, previously annotated as adenosine deaminases, have been subjected to structural and functional characterization. Pa0148 (Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1), AAur1117 (Arthrobacter aurescens TC1), Sgx9403e, and Sgx9403g have been purified and their substrate profiles determined. Adenosine is not a substrate for any of these enzymes. All of these proteins will deaminate adenine to produce hypoxanthine with k{sub cat}/K{sub m} values that exceed 10{sup 5} M{sup -1} s{sup -1}. These enzymes will also accept 6-chloropurine, 6-methoxypurine, N-6-methyladenine, and 2,6-diaminopurine as alternate substrates. X-ray structures of Pa0148 and AAur1117 have been determined and reveal nearly identical distorted ({beta}/{alpha}){sub 8} barrels with a single zinc ion that is characteristic of members of the amidohydrolase superfamily. Structures of Pa0148 with adenine, 6-chloropurine, and hypoxanthine were also determined, thereby permitting identification of the residues responsible for coordinating the substrate and product.

Thermal analysis and two-directional air flow thermal management for lithium-ion battery pack  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Thermal management is a routine but crucial strategy to ensure thermal stability and long-term durability of the lithium-ion batteries. An air-flow-integrated thermal management system is designed in the present study to dissipate heat generation and uniformize the distribution of temperature in the lithium-ion batteries. The system contains of two types of air ducts with independent intake channels and fans. One is to cool the batteries through the regular channel, and the other minimizes the heat accumulations in the middle pack of batteries through jet cooling. A three-dimensional anisotropic heat transfer model is developed to describe the thermal behavior of the lithium-ion batteries with the integration of heat generation theory, and validated through both simulations and experiments. Moreover, the simulations and experiments show that the maximum temperature can be decreased to 33.1C through the new thermal management system in comparison with 42.3C through the traditional ones, and temperature uniformity of the lithium-ion battery packs is enhanced, significantly.

Correlate the flooding of packed columns a new way  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Packed-column pressure-drop and flooding-point prediction has received new attention recently. These publications, like most earlier ones, focus on gas-flow-induced pressure drop, and flooding due to liquid entrainment in the packing. A few years ago, some problems occurred when packing was applied in high-pressure distillation service, such as ethylene and propylene superfractionators. Apparently, the maximum liquid-through-put capacity was lower than predicted from the gas-flow-induced flooding correlations. Such situation exists when predicting the performance of valve trays in similar service: liquid downflow can be limiting before entrainment flooding occurs. The reason for this behavior is the relatively low liquid and high vapor density of these high-pressure services. The liquid/vapor density ratios are typically 10--15:1 for such hydrocarbon systems. In contrast, for low-pressure water/air systems, this ratio is in the range 300--800:1. A large amount of experimental data for low-pressure systems has been used to correlate pressure drop and flooding, but it doesn't cover the technically important region of low liquid and high vapor density. This Article suggests an approach for understanding such liquid-limited systems.

Decay of 7.3-min Th235 and 24.6-min Pa235  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Sources of Th235 and Pa235 were prepared by medium energy neutron and proton irradiations of uranium followed by radiochemical separations. Gamma-ray spectroscopy showed 13 new ? rays in the decay of Th235. Its half-life is 7.30.1 min, and that of Pa235 is 24.60.2 min. A partial decay scheme is proposed for Th235, and a large anomalous retardation is reported in one branch of the Pa235 ?- decay.

Liner surface improvements for low friction piston ring packs  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The development of engine components in the automotive industry is governed by several constraints such as environmental legislation and customer expectations. About a half of the frictional losses in an internal combustion engine come from the interactions between the piston assembly and cylinder liner surface. The tribological considerations in the contact between the piston ring and cylinder liner have attracted much attention over the past few decades. Many non-conventional cylinder liner finishes have been, and are being, developed with the aim to reduce friction losses and oil consumption, but the effects of the surface finish on piston ring pack performance is not well understood. One way of reducing friction in the cylinder system is to reduce the tangential load from the piston ring pack, focusing on the oil control ring. However, the side-effect of this is a disappointingly increased oil consumption. Inthis study a number of different cylinder liner surface specifications were developed and implemented in test engines with the aim of maintaining the level for oil consumption when decreasing the tangential load for the piston ring pack. To improve our understanding of the result, the same surfaces were evaluated in elastic and elasto-plastic rough contact and hydrodynamic flow simulation models. It is shown that oil consumption is strongly related to surface texture on the cylinder liners and at lower speeds (9001200rpm), a 'rougher surface' with a high core (e.g. Sk) and valley roughness (e.g. Svk) results in higher oil consumption. Atthe medium speed range (12003600rpm), oil consumption continues to dominate for the 'rough' surfaces but with a visible influence of a lower oil consumption for a decreased roughness within the 'rough' surface group. 'Smooth' surfaces with a 'smooth' core (Sk), irrespective of the valley component (Svk), show similar oil consumption. For engine speeds above 3600rpms, an increase in plateau roughness results in higher oil consumption. Throughout the study, standard roughness parameters were computed to compare with the results from engine testing and simulation. Future work will be directed to continuous optimization between oil consumption and friction. Improving the understanding of the functional cylinder system surfaces' ability to form oil films in the cylinder system opens up opportunities, not only in reducing the tangential load of piston ring packs but also in optimizing oil viscosity in order to reduce friction.

Power-law friction in closely-packed granular materials  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In order to understand the nature of friction in closely-packed granular materials, a discrete element simulation on granular layers subjected to isobaric plain shear is performed. It is found that the friction coefficient increases as the power of the shear rate, the exponent of which does not depend on the material constants. Using a nondimensional parameter that is known as the inertial number, the power-law can be cast in a generalized form so that the friction coefficients at different confining pressures collapse on the same curve. We show that the volume fraction also obeys a power-law.

Decay of 37.5-min Th236 and 9.1-min Pa236  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The decays of Th236 and its Pa236 daughter were studied by ?-ray spectroscopy. By means of radiochemical methods and a continuous separation technique pure sources of parent and daughter were prepared so that each was free (or almost free) of the other. For Th236, 14 of the 17 observed ? rays are new; for Pa236 16 new ? rays were found. Absolute intensities of all the ? rays were determined with the aid of 4? beta measurements on Pa236. A new decay scheme is proposed for Th236 and a considerably expanded one is given for Pa236. The half-lives determined are 37.50.2 min for Th236 and 9.10.1 min for Pa236.

Method for immobilizing particulate materials in a packed bed  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention pertains generally to immobilizing particulate matter contained in a "packed" bed reactor so as to prevent powder migration, compaction, coalescence, or the like. More specifically, this invention relates to a technique for immobilizing particulate materials using a microporous foam-like polymer such that a) the particulate retains its essential chemical nature, b) the local movement of the particulate particles is not unduly restricted, c) bulk powder migration and is prevented, d) physical and chemical access to the particulate is unchanged over time, and e) very high particulate densities are achieved. The immobilized bed of the present invention comprises a vessel for holding particulate matter, inlet and an outlet ports or fittings, a loosely packed bed of particulate material contained within the vessel, and a three dimensional porous matrix for surrounding and confining the particles thereby fixing the movement of individual particle to a limited local position. The established matrix is composed of a series of cells or chambers comprising walls surrounding void space, each wall forming the wall of an adjacent cell; each wall containing many holes penetrating through the wall yielding an overall porous structure and allowing useful levels of gas transport.

Local origin of global contact numbers in frictional ellipsoid packings  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In particulate soft matter systems the average number of contacts $Z$ of a particle is an important predictor of the mechanical properties of the system. Using X-ray tomography, we analyze packings of frictional, oblate ellipsoids of various aspect ratios $\\alpha$, prepared at different global volume fractions $\\phi_g$. We find that $Z$ is a monotonously increasing function of $\\phi_g$ for all $\\alpha$. We demonstrate that this functional dependence can be explained by a local analysis where each particle is described by its local volume fraction $\\phi_l$ computed from a Voronoi tessellation. $Z$ can be expressed as an integral over all values of $\\phi_l$: $Z(\\phi_g, \\alpha, X) = \\int Z_l (\\phi_l, \\alpha, X) \\; P(\\phi_l | \\phi_g) \\; d\\phi_l$. The local contact number function $ Z_l (\\phi_l, \\alpha, X)$ describes the relevant physics in term of locally defined variables only, including possible higher order corrections $X$. The conditional probability $P(\\phi_l | \\phi_g)$ to find a specific value of $\\phi_l$ given a global packing fraction $\\phi_g$ is independent of $\\alpha$ and $X$. An important step in defining $ Z_l (\\phi_l, \\alpha, X)$ is the determination of the local surface area fraction $\\psi_l$.

Improved half-life measurement of 224Pa and its 209Bi(18O,3n)224Pa production cross section  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

224Pa was produced via the 209Bi(18O,3n) reaction at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory 88-Inch Cyclotron and the half-life was determined to be 85020 ms by measuring its alpha decay using our rotating wheel system. Our value is consistent with a previously reported half-life of 950150 ms for 224Pa produced via the 205Tl(22Ne,3n) reaction, but its much more precise. The cross section for the 209Bi(18O,3n)224Pa reaction was measured to be 0.50.1 mb for 8789 MeV 18O5+ projectiles incident on the target.

Calculation of the neutron-induced fission cross section of Pa233  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Since very recently, experimental data for the energy dependence of the Pa233(n,f) cross section are finally available. This has stimulated a new, self-consistent cross section evaluation for the system n+Pa233 in the incident neutron energy range 0.016MeV. The results are quite different compared to earlier evaluation attempts. Since Pa233 is an important intermediary in the thorium based fuel cycle, its neutron reaction cross sections are key parameters in the modeling of future advanced reactor concepts.

Penetration depth scaling for impact into wet granular packings  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We present experimental measurements of penetration depths for the impact of spheres into wetted granular media. We observe that the penetration depth in the liquid saturated case scales with projectile density, size, and drop height in a fashion consistent with the scaling observed in the dry case, but that penetration depths into saturated packings tend to be smaller. This result suggests that, for the range of impact energies observed, the stopping force is set by static contact forces between grains within the bed, and that the presence of liquid serves, primarily, to enhance these contact forces. The enhancement to the stopping force has a complicated dependence on liquid fraction, accompanied by a change in the drop-height dependence, that must be the consequence of accompanying changes in the conformation of the liquid phase in the interstices.

METHOD TO TEST ISOTOPIC SEPARATION EFFICIENCY OF PALLADIUM PACKED COLUMNS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The isotopic effect of palladium has been applied in different ways to separate hydrogen isotopes for many years. At Savannah River Site palladium deposited on kieselguhr (Pd/k) is used in a thermal cycling absorption process (TCAP) to purify tritium for over ten years. The need to design columns for different throughputs and the desire to advance the performance of TCAP created the need to evaluate different column designs and packing materials for their separation efficiency. In this work, columns with variations in length, diameter and metal foam use, were tested using an isotope displacement method. A simple computer model was also developed to calculate the number of theoretical separation stages using the test results. The effects of column diameter, metal foam and gas flow rate were identified.

Combustion of textile residues in a packed bed  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Textile is one of the main components in the municipal waste which is to be diverted from landfill for material and energy recovery. As an initial investigation for energy recovery from textile residues, the combustion of cotton fabrics with a minor fraction of polyester was investigated in a packed bed combustor for air flow rates ranging from 117 to 1638 kg/m{sup 2} h (0.027-0.371 m/s). Tests were also carried out in order to evaluate the co-combustion of textile residues with two segregated waste materials: waste wood and cardboard. Textile residues showed different combustion characteristics when compared to typical waste materials at low air flow rates below 819 kg/m{sup 2} h (0.186 m/s). The ignition front propagated fast along the air channels randomly formed between packed textile particles while leaving a large amount of unignited material above. This resulted in irregular behaviour of the temperature profile, ignition rate and the percentage of weight loss in the ignition propagation stage. A slow smouldering burn-out stage followed the ignition propagation stage. At air flow rates of 1200-1600 kg/m{sup 2} h (0.272-0.363 m/s), the bed had a maximum burning rate of about 240 kg/m{sup 2} h consuming most of the combustibles in the ignition propagation stage. More uniform combustion with an increased burning rate was achieved when textile residues were co-burned with cardboard that had a similar bulk density. (author)

For some of the fractionated vibrational resonances in this energy region, the assignment of spectroscopic parameters may support evidence for an asymmetrically deformed third minimum in the Pa232 fission barrier. Also, for the first time, narrow fission resonances are observed above 1.3 eV exhibiting an average fission width ??f?ob s=8 ?eV.

Shortcut computation for the thermal management of a large air-cooled battery pack  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Thermal management is crucial to maintain the performance of large battery packs in electric vehicles. To this end, we present herein a shortcut computational method to rapidly estimate the flow and temperature profiles in a parallel airflow-cooled large battery pack with wedge-shaped plenums for airflow distribution. The method couples a flow resistance network model with a transient heat transfer model to calculate the temperature distribution in a battery pack as influenced by the airflows within and among battery modules in the pack. The effects of the plate angle of the plenums, the minimal plenum width and the battery unit spacing on the airflow and temperature distributions are presented. Additionally, an example of collective parameter adjustment for acceptable temperature uniformity of a battery pack subjected to total volume constraint is given.

HIGH-POWER RF DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMFOR THE 8-PACK PROJECT  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The 8-Pack Project at SLAC is a prototype rf system whose goal is to demonstrate the high-power X-band technology developed in the NLC/GLC (Next/Global Linear Collider) program. In its first phase, it has reliably produced a 400 ns rf pulse of over 500 MW using a solidstate modulator, four 11.424 GHz klystrons and a dualmoded SLED-II pulse compressor. In Phase 2, the output power of the system has been delivered into the bunker of the NLCTA (Next Linear Collider Test Accelerator) and divided between several accelerator structures for beam acceleration. The authors describe here the design, cold-test measurements, and processing of this power distribution system. Due to the high power levels and the need for efficiency, overmoded waveguide and components are used. For power transport, the TE{sub 01} mode is used in 7.44 cm and 4.064 cm diameter circular waveguide. Only near the structures is standard WR90 rectangular waveguide employed. Components used to manipulate the rf power include transitional tapers, mode converters, overmoded bends, fractional directional couplers, and hybrids.

Determining Pa234(n,f) cross sections using the surrogate method  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The fission decay probabilities of the Pa235 and U236 compound nuclei produced in a single experiment in Th232(Li7, ?f)Pa235 and Th232(Li7, tf)U236 transfer induced fission reaction channels, have been measured at Elab=39.5 MeV in the excitation energy range of 1420 MeV. The Pa234(n, f) cross sections are then deduced from the measured fission decay probability ratios of Pa235 and U236 compound systems in the equivalent neutron energy range of 814 MeV within the framework of the hybrid surrogate ratio method, considering the well-measured U235(n, f) cross sections as the reference. The experimental data on Pa234(n, f) cross sections have been compared with the calculated fission cross sections using empire-3.1 code with the fission barrier height values obtained from barrier formula (BF) as well as ripl-3 [24]. The present experimental results are found to be in very good agreement with the empire-3.1 predictions for the fission barrier heights predicted by the BF.

Similar Energetic Contributions of Packing in the Core of Membrane and Water-Soluble Proteins  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A major driving force for water-soluble protein folding is the hydrophobic effect, but membrane proteins cannot make use of this stabilizing contribution in the apolar core of the bilayer. It has been proposed that membrane proteins compensate by packing more efficiently. We therefore investigated packing contributions experimentally by observing the energetic and structural consequences of cavity creating mutations in the core of a membrane protein. We observed little difference in the packing energetics of water and membrane soluble proteins. Our results imply that other mechanisms are employed to stabilize the structure of membrane proteins.

Analysis of fluid permeation through a particle-packed layer using an electric resistance network as an analogy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Fluid permeation resistance through a particle-packed bed with a non-uniform structure was investigated both theoretically and experimentally to confirm the relationship between pressure drop and air flow rate. Multiple-block construction consisting of various types of powders in the particle bed was used in this experiment. With the goal of design and operation simplification, a model bed was used to simulate an actual powder bed with a non-uniform structure due to local variation in particle size, particle shape and packing density. An electrical network circuit analogy was used to express the theoretical model bed where fluid flows in a zigzag manner among particles in the bed. The results showed good agreement between the theoretical model and experimental data. The results also verified that the fluid flow was irregular in all directions when using the non-uniform structure. In addition, the present study demonstrated that the concept of tortuosity should be considered due to the irregular flow path in the bed. Thus, the results of the present study suggest that the electric resistance network analogy might be useful in solving the problem of fluid permeation in actual particle layers with non-uniform structures.

k=0 Libron Spectrum for Solid Hydrogen in the Pa3andCmmm Structures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The libron wave spectrum at zero wave vector for solid hydrogen in the Pa3andCmmm structures is calculated at zero temperature. Interactions other than the electrostatic interactions between molecular quadrupole moments are treated perturbatively. Comparison of our numerical and analytic results for libron frequencies and Raman intensities with the observed Raman spectrum gives strong evidence for the Pa3 structure. The scaling relation between the frequencies of the classical and quantum-librational systems is found to hold for the Pa3 but not for the Cmmm structure. The effects of zero-point librations and libron-libron interactions are studied to lowest order in 1z, where z is the number of nearest neighbors. Although the static effects are quite small, the shifts in the libron frequencies due to these interactions are of order 15%.

Modular Approach for Continuous Cell-Level Balancing to Improve Performance of Large Battery Packs: Preprint  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Energy storage systems require battery cell balancing circuits to avoid divergence of cell state of charge (SOC). A modular approach based on distributed continuous cell-level control is presented that extends the balancing function to higher level pack performance objectives such as improving power capability and increasing pack lifetime. This is achieved by adding DC-DC converters in parallel with cells and using state estimation and control to autonomously bias individual cell SOC and SOC range, forcing healthier cells to be cycled deeper than weaker cells. The result is a pack with improved degradation characteristics and extended lifetime. The modular architecture and control concepts are developed and hardware results are demonstrated for a 91.2-Wh battery pack consisting of four series Li-ion battery cells and four dual active bridge (DAB) bypass DC-DC converters.

Packing-Based Approximation Algorithm for the k-Set Cover Problem  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We present a packing-based approximation algorithm for the $k$-Set Cover problem. We introduce a new local search-based $k$-set packing heuristic, and call it Restricted $k$-Set Packing. We analyze its tight approximation ratio via a complicated combinatorial argument. Equipped with the Restricted $k$-Set Packing algorithm, our $k$-Set Cover algorithm is composed of the $k$-Set Packing heuristic \\cite{schrijver} for $k\\geq 7$, Restricted $k$-Set Packing for $k=6,5,4$ and the semi-local $(2,1)$-improvement \\cite{furer} for 3-Set Cover. We show that our algorithm obtains a tight approximation ratio of $H_k-0.6402+\\Theta(\\frac{1}{k})$, where $H_k$ is the $k$-th harmonic number. For small $k$, our results are 1.8667 for $k=6$, 1.7333 for $k=5$ and 1.5208 for $k=4$. Our algorithm improves the currently best approximation ratio for the $k$-Set Cover problem of any $k\\geq 4$.

Paramagnetic Resonance Hyperfine Structure of Tetravalent Pa231 in Cs2ZrCl6  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Paramagnetic resonance absorption at 3-cm wavelengths is observed for tetravalent Pa231 in a single crystal of Cs2ZrCl6 at helium temperatures. The observed spectra correspond to the allowed transitions (Sz,Iz?Sz1,Iz) and the forbidden transitions (Sz, Iz?Sz1, Iz?1) of a system described by the spin Hamiltonian, Hs=g?HS+AIS-gn??HI, with S=12, I=32, |A|h=1578.61.4 Mc/sec, |g|=1.14230.0014, and |gn?|?810-4. The errors indicate a small deviation from isotropy. It is further observed that gn?g<0, indicating that if gn? is positive, as is strongly indicated by the nuclear shell model, then g is negative. An additional electron-nuclear double-resonance experiment is used to determine directly the nuclear magnetic moment ?(Pa231)=1.96 nuclear magnetons. This value includes a correction of 9% due to perturbations of an excited state about 1900 cm-1 above the ground-state doublet of Pa4+ in its octahedral crystal field. A lower frequency double-resonance experiment is used to measure the weak hyperfine interaction of the Pa4+ ion with its Cs133 neighbors, of order A??h?0.5 Mc/sec.

Graphene oxide-silica nanohybrids as fillers for PA6 based nanocomposites  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Graphene oxide (GO) was prepared by oxidation of graphite flakes by a mixture of H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}/H{sub 3}PO{sub 4} and KMnO{sub 4} based on Marcano's method. Two different masterbatches containing GO (33.3%) and polyamide-6 (PA6) (66.7%) were prepared both via solvent casting in formic acid and by melt mixing in a mini-extruder (Haake). The two masterbatches were then used to prepare PA6-based nanocomposites with a content of 2% in GO. For comparison, a nanocomposite by direct mixing of PA6 and GO (2%) and PA6/graphite nanocomposites were prepared, too. The oxidation of graphite into GO was assessed by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Micro-Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) analyses. All these techniques demonstrated the effectiveness of the graphite modification, since the results put into evidence that, after the acid treatment, interlayer distance, oxygen content and defects increased. SEM micrographs carried out on the nanocomposites, showed GO layers totally surrounded by polyamide-6, this feature is likely due to the strong interaction between the hydrophilic moieties located both on GO and on PA6. On the contrary, no interactions were observed when graphite was used as filler. Mechanical characterization, carried out by tensile and dynamic-mechanical tests, marked an improvement of the mechanical properties observed. Photoluminescence and EPR measurements were carried out onto nanoparticles and nanocomposites to study the nature of the interactions and to assess the possibility to use this class of materials as semiconductors or optical sensors.

Shear thickening and jamming in densely packed suspensions of different particle shapes  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We investigated the effects of particle shape on shear thickening in densely packed suspensions. Rods of different aspect ratios and non-convex hooked rods were fabricated. Viscosity curves and normal stresses were measured using a rheometer for a wide range of packing fractions for each shape. Suspensions of each shape exhibit qualitatively similar Discontinuous Shear Thickening. The logarithmic slope of the stress/shear-rate relation increases dramatically with packing fraction and diverges at a critical packing fraction phi_c which depends on particle shape. The packing fraction dependence of the viscosity curves for different convex shapes can be collapsed when the packing fraction is normalized by phi_c. Intriguingly, viscosity curves for non-convex particles do not collapse on the same set as convex particles, showing strong shear thickening over a wider range of packing fraction. The value of phi_c is found to coincide with the onset of a yield stress at the jamming transition, suggesting the jamming transition also controls shear thickening. The yield stress is found to correspond with trapped air in the suspensions, and the scale of the stress can be attributed to interfacial tension forces which dramatically increase above phi_c due to the geometric constraints of jamming. The relationship between shear and normal stresses is found to be linear in both the shear thickening and jammed regimes, indicating that the shear stresses come from friction. In the limit of zero shear rate, normal stresses pull the rheometer plates together due to the surface tension of the liquid below phi_c, but push the rheometer plates apart due to jamming above phi_c.

Prompt fission neutron multiplicity and spectrum calculations for thermal and fast neutron induced reactions on 233,231Pa nuclei  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The prompt fission neutron multiplicity and spectra of 233Pa(n, f) and 231Pa(n, f) were calculated for incident neutron energies up to 50MeV and 30MeV, respectively using refined neutron evaporation models. Those models have been already successfully applied to calculate the prompt neutron multiplicities and spectra for many actinides. The unique experimental data concerning the fission fragment mass distribution and total kinetic energy for the 234,233,232Pa fissioning nuclei were exploited in the frame of the Point-by-Point treatment. The total average prompt neutron multiplicity, the fission fragment pair multiplicity and the multiplicity dependence on fragment mass (sawtooth) for the reactions 233,232,231Pa(nth, f) and the average values of the model parameters for 234-232Pa fissioning nuclei were calculated. For the other Pa fissioning nuclei involved in the studied reactions relevant parameters were established following systematic trends. Due to a total lack of experimental prompt fission neutron multiplicity and spectrum data for Pa isotopes, the present results were compared with systematic trends following from neighboring actinides. The calculated prompt fission neutron multiplicity as well as the prompt ?-ray energy of the 233,231Pa(n, f) reactions are obtained in very good agreement with all systematic trends.

Project Plan 7930 Cell G PaR Remote Handling System Replacement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

For over 40 years the US Department of Energy (DOE) and its predecessors have made Californium-252 ({sup 252}Cf) available for a wide range of industries including medical, nuclear fuels, mining, military and national security. The Radiochemical Engineering Development Center (REDC) located within the Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) processes irradiated production targets from the High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR). Operations in Building 7930, Cell G provide over 70% of the world's demand for {sup 252}Cf. Building 7930 was constructed and equipped in the mid-1960s. Current operations for {sup 252}Cf processing in Building 7930, Cell G require use of through-the-wall manipulators and the PaR Remote Handling System. Maintenance and repairs for the manipulators is readily accomplished by removal of the manipulator and relocation to a repair shop where hands-on work can be performed in glove boxes. Contamination inside cell G does not currently allow manned entry and no provisions were created for a maintenance area inside the cell. There has been no maintenance of the PaR system or upgrades, leaving operations vulnerable should the system have a catastrophic failure. The Cell G PaR system is currently being operated in a run to failure mode. As the manipulator is now 40+ years old there is significant risk in this method of operation. In 2006 an assessment was completed that resulted in recommendations for replacing the manipulator operator control and power centers which are used to control and power the PaR manipulator in Cell G. In mid-2008 the chain for the bridge drive failed and subsequent examinations indicated several damaged links (see Figure 1). To continue operations the PaR manipulator arm is being used to push and pull the bridge as a workaround. A retrieval tool was fabricated, tested and staged inside Cell G that will allow positioning of the bridge and manipulator arm for removal from the cell should the PaR system completely fail. A fully functioning and reliable Par manipulator arm is necessary for uninterrupted {sup 252}Cf operations; a fully-functioning bridge is needed for the system to function as intended.

TI-59 helps predict IPRs for gravel-packed gas wells  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The inflow performance relationship (IPR) is an important tool for reservoir and production engineers. It helps optimize completion, tubing, gas lift, and storm choke design. It facilitates accurate rate predictions that can be used to evaluate field development decisions. The IPR is the first step of the systems analysis that translates reservoir rock and fluid parameters into predictable flow rates. Use of gravel packing for sand control complicates the calculation that predicts a well's IPR curve, particularly in gas wells where high velocities in the formation and through gravel-filled perforation tunnels can cause turbulent flow. The program presented in this article calculates the pressure drop and the flowing bottomhole pressures at varying flow rates for gravel-packed gas wells. The program was written for a Texas Instruments TI-59 programmable calculator with a PC-100 printer. Program features include: Calculations for in-casing gravel packs, open-hole gravel packs, or ungravel packed wells. Program prompts for the required data variables. Easy change of data values to run new cases. Calculates pressures for an unlimited number of flow rates. Results show the total pressure drop and the relative magnitude of its components.

Fluctuations, structure factor and polytetrahedra in random packings of sticky hard spheres  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Sequentially-built random sphere-packings have been numerically studied in the packing fraction interval $0.329 designed in order to build about 300 aggregates, containing $10^6$ spheres each one, which allowed a careful study of the local fluctuations and an improved accuracy in the calculations of the pair distribution $P(r)$ and structure factors $S(Q)$ of the aggregates. Among various parameters (Voronoi tessellation, contact coordination number distribution,...), fluctuations were quantitatively evaluated by the direct evaluation of the fluctuations of the local sphere number density, which appears to follow a power law. The FWHM of the Voronoi cells volume shows a regular variation over the whole packing fraction range. Dirac peaks appear on the pair correlation function as the packing fraction of the aggregates decreases, indicating the growth of larger and larger polytetrahedra, which manifest in two ways on the structure factor, at low and large $Q$values. These low PF aggregates have a composite structure made of regular polytetrahedra embedded in a more disordered matrix. Incidentally, the irregularity index of the building tetrahedron appears as a better parameter than the packing fraction to describe various features of the aggregates structure.

Ship-pack optimization in a two-echelon distribution system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In large distribution systems, distribution centers (DC) deliver some merchandize to their retail stores in size-specific packages, also called ship-packs. These ship-packs include cases (e.g., cartons containing 24 or 48units), inners (packages of 6 or 8units) or eaches (individual units). For each Stock Keeping Unit (SKU), a retailer can decide which of these ship-pack options to use when replenishing its retail stores. Working with a major US retailer, we have developed a cost model that balances DC handling costs, store handling costs and inventory-related costs at both the DC and the stores, and therefore can help to determine the optimum warehouse ship-pack for each SKU. We implement our model for a sample of 529 SKUs, and show that by changing ship-pack size for about 30 SKUs, the retailer can reduce its total cost by 0.3% - 0.4%. Interestingly, we find that most of the cost savings occurs at the DC level.

Stacking and twin faults in close-packed crystal structures: exact description of random faulting statistics for the full range of faulting probabilities  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A model of independent random faulting in face-centered-cubic and hexagonal close packing considering single deformation faults or twin faulting is revisited. The approach allows the analysis, within the random model, of the whole range of faulting probabilities. Several descriptions of the underlying faulting process are presented which allows the derivation of different properties of the faulted sequences. The probability of finding two layers of the same type layers apart is derived. It is shown that previous generalizations did not account for mixed terms in the final probability expressions.

Fission of light actinides: Th232(n,f) and Pa231(n,f) reactions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A model to describe fission on light actinides, which takes into account transmission through a triple-humped fission barrier with absorption, is proposed. The fission probability derived in the WKB approximation within an optical model for fission has been incorporated into the statistical model of nuclear reactions. The complex resonant structure in the first-chance neutron-induced fission cross sections of Th232 and Pa231 nuclei has been reproduced by the proposed model. Consistent sets of parameters describing the triple-humped fission barriers of Th233 and Pa232 have been obtained. The results confirm the attribution of the gross resonant structure in the fission probability of these light actinides to partially damped vibrational states in the second well and undamped vibrational states in the third well of the corresponding fission barriers.

Possibility of modification of the 231Pa Mssbauer spectra due to polarization-selective optical pumping  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The possibility of optical pumping of nuclei in solids is considered. In spite of the fact that inhomogeneous and homogeneous linewidths typically exceed the hyperfine splitting in solid hosts it is possible to redistribute the population of the hyperfine nuclear sublevels by means of polarization-selective optical pumping. Such redistribution can be detected by NMR methods or Mssbauer spectroscopic techniques. The latter case is considered in this work. The Mssbauer isotope 231Pa is proposed as a candidate for possible experiment.

Packed bed thermal energy storage model Generalized approach and experimental validation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Packed beds serve as thermal energy storages (TES) and heat exchangers (HEX) in different technological applications. In this paper, a general heterogeneous model of heat transfer in packed beds is developed. It is implemented by lumped element formulation in object-oriented modeling language Modelica and is successful validated with data sets taken from two different experiments reported in literature. The main advantages of the introduced model are the general, theory-based approach and the lumped element formulation in Modelica. The first point mentioned above should allow to simulate a packed bed TES/HEX without the necessity applying measured data for model calibration or to apply specific heat transfer correlations with restricted application. The second point establishes the possibility to integrate the TES/HEX model within plant models of larger scale without increasing the simulation time drastically.

Emission of F23 and Ne24 in cluster radioactivity of Pa231  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Using a track-recording phosphate glass detector with a standard deviation ?Z=0.23 charge unit, we collected ?2100 tracks of energetic clusters emitted from Pa231. Of these, 1348 survived cuts on energy, angle of incidence to the detectors, and ?2. All but one of them are consistent with Ne24, and our measured branching ratio, B(Ne/?)=(13.41.7)10-12, for an alpha-decay half-life for Pa231 of 3.28104 yr. This value of B is a factor of 2.2 greater than was determined by Tretyakova et al., who observed 252 Ne decays. We identify one event as F23, the nucleus predicted by cluster emission models to have the second highest branching ratio for emission from Pa231. This corresponds to a branching ratio B(Ne/F)=1347-940+6440, the 1? limits being governed by inverse Poisson statistics. Published models predict lower values of B(Ne/F), ranging from 3 to 400. Our event, if its 4? deviation from Ne is regarded as sufficient evidence for F, would be the first example of emission of an odd-Z cluster in spontaneous cluster radioactivity.

Experimental Investigation into a Packed Bed Thermal Storage Solution for Solar Gas Turbine Systems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract High temperature thermal storage in randomly packed beds of ceramic particles is proposed as an effective storage solution for Solar Gas Turbine (SGT) cycles in the near term. Numerical modelling of these systems allows for optimised thermal storage designs, but such models must be validated against experimental data. In this work an experimental test programme was conducted to generate high temperature heat transfer data for a packed bed operating over the temperature ranges 350-900C and 600-900C. These are representative of two potential SGT cycles. Flue gas from a 45kW LPG burner was used to heat a packed bed of Denstone ceramic pebbles and the testing procedure involved preheating the system to achieve the desired temperature ranges. The fluid and solid temperature profiles in the packed bed were measured in the axial and radial dimensions and are compared to a numerical model with reasonable agreement. Potential modifications to the test facility are described and future testing plans outlined.

Frac and pack stimulation: Application and field experience from Hylia Gabon, West Africa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper describes a two-step frac/gravel pack completion procedure conducted from a jack-up rig offshore Gabon in 1993 and 1994. After an in-depth, sand production study, seven wells were completed using hydraulic fracturing and cased-hole gravel packs. Because the Anguille formation spreads over a large gross interval, production screens of 50 to 100 m in length were used. Single-stage internal gravel packs (IGPs) on such large intervals were considered impossible to achieve with reasonable skin values. The frac-pack technique was an attractive way to achieve good proppant placement, considering that the formation being fractured would have a more homogeneous conductivity across the whole zone and a uniform proppant placement would be achieved in the perforations as well as in the annulus. High-efficiency frac gel using cross-linked HPG and a low damage one using HEC were compared to determine the best fluid to be used for these completions. Bottom hole pressures during treatment operations, as well as post-treatment pressure build-ups from each well, were analyzed in order to make general recommendations on this hydraulic fracture design.

A novel reactor configuration for packed bed chemical-looping combustion of syngas  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This study reports on the application of chemical looping combustion (CLC) in pressurized packed bed reactors using syngas as a fuel. High pressure operation of CLC in packed bed has a different set of challenges in terms of material properties, cycle and reactor design compared to fluidized bed operation. However, high pressure operation allows the use of inherently more efficient power cycles than low pressure fluidized bed solutions. This paper quantifies the challenges in high pressure operation and introduces a novel reactor concept with which those challenges can be addressed. Continuous cyclic operation of a packed bed CLC system is simulated in a 1D numerical reactor model. Importantly, it is demonstrated that the temperature profiles that can occur in a packed bed reactor as a result of the different process steps do not accumulate, and have a negligible effect on the overall performance of the system. Moreover, it has been shown that an even higher energy efficiency can be achieved by feeding the syngas from the opposite direction during the reduction step (i.e. countercurrent operation). Unfortunately, in this configuration mode, more severe temperature fluctuations occur in the reactor exhaust, which is disadvantageous for the operation of a downstream gas turbine. Finally, a novel reactor configuration is introduced in which the desired temperature rise for obtained hot pressured air suitable for a gas turbine is obtained by carrying out the process with two packed bed reactor in series (two-stage CLC). This is shown to be a good alternative to the single bed configuration, and has the added advantage of decreasing the demands on both the oxygen carrier and the reactor materials and design specification.

By comparison of transient photoconductivity (TPC) and transient photoinduced absorption (PA) the influence of the density of states in the bandgap on excess charge carrier kinetics is studied for a-Si:H films deposited at different temperatures and for state of the art a-Si:H films in two different states of light soaking. In both series the rising deep defect density leads to an enhancement of electron trapping rather than recombination via deep defects. The samples deposited at temperatures lower than 250 C additionally show a lower effective electron mobility, i.e., a broader conduction band tail.

Crystal-structure stabilities and electronic structure for the light actinides Th, Pa, and U  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The crystal-structure stabilities, equilibrium volumes, and bulk moduli (at T=0) of the light actinides Th, Pa, and U, have been calculated by means of full-potential, total-energy band-structure calculations. The total energies of the three elements were calculated as a function of volume in the three experimentally observed crystal structures: fcc, bct, and orthorhombic (?-U). Our calculations reproduce the experimentally observed crystal structures, as well as the equilibrium volumes and bulk moduli (the bulk modulus of Pa being an exception). Other calculated ground-state properties are also in good agreement with experiment, e.g., crystal-structure parameters (c/a ratio and positional parameters). On the basis of our results, we argue that the 5f electrons are participating in the chemical bonds, and that they have a large influence on the crystal structure. The equilibrium volumes of hypothetical fcc structures are found to show increasing deviations from the volumes obtained in the true crystal structures, as the 5f band becomes filled. Also, these fully relativistic calculations (assuming a fcc structure) show a smaller volume for Pu than for Np, in contrast to the experimental finding. We therefore propose that the anomalous volume of ?-Pu is associated with its very unusual crystal structure, rather than with relativistic effects. Detailed information from the calculations is presented, such as the density of states, charge-density contour plots, and orbital occupation numbers.

U234 excited states fed in the ? decay of Pa234  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The decay of radiochemically separated Pa234 (UZ) sources has been reinvestigated by means of single and ?-? coincidence spectrometry using planar and high efficiency coaxial HPGe detectors. Of the 330 ? rays observed in the 402100 keV energy range, of which 140 are new, more than 310 ? rays are accommodated in an improved U234 level scheme, accounting for 98% of the Pa234 ? decay; of the 77 excited states observed here, 37 had not been previously found in this decay. Within the framework of the collective model of strongly deformed nuclei, couplings between the collective positive parity K?=01+ (g.s. band), 02+, 21+, 03+, and 22+ bands are estimated from the perturbed transition probabilities and the distortions to the adiabatic energy systematics. The Coriolis interaction weakly coupling the K?=0-, 1-, and 2- octupole bands was evaluated consistently by a fit to the experimental energy levels. Several new levels and a tentative K?=3+ band (at 1770 keV) are discussed in terms of Nilsson orbitals assignments.

Study of Bk249, Am241, and Pa231 with proton transfer reactions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Proton single-particle states have been studied in the isotopes Bk249, Am241, and Pa231. The reaction (?,t) was utilized in the three studies. Additionally, the reaction (He3, d) was used in the study of levels in Bk249. Many new levels were observed and some could be interpreted in terms of single-particle orbitals. Also several assignments previously made on the basis of radioactive decay studies were confirmed by the orbital signatures seen in the proton transfer spectra. Single-particle energies are extracted from the experimental data. Deformations of the nuclear central potential are deduced for Bk249 and Am241. By use of the parameters of the central field for Bk249, the f72-f52 splitting is deduced for mass 250 at zero deformation and estimated for mass 300.NUCLEAR REACTIONS Cm248(He3,d), Cm248, Pu240, Th230(?,t) E=29 MeV; measured E (excitation), ?; deduced orbitals, s.p. energies, deformations in Bk249, Am241, Pa231.

Sorption-capacity limited retardation of radionuclides transport in water-saturated packing materials  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Radionuclides breakthrough times as calculated through constant retardation factors obtained in dilute solutions are non-conservative. The constant retardation approach regards the solid as having infinite sorption capacity throughout the solid. However, as the solid becomes locally saturated, such as in the proximity of the waste form-packing materials interface, it will exhibit no retardation properties, and transport will take place as if the radionuclides were locally non-reactive. The magnitude of the effect of finite sorption capacity of the packing materials on radionuclide transport is discussed with reference to high-level waste package performance. An example based on literature sorption data indicates that the breakthrough time may be overpredicted by orders of magnitude using a constant retardation factor as compared to using the entire sorption isotherm to obtain a concentration-dependent retardation factor. 8 references, 3 figures, 3 tables.

Spin-Lattice Relaxation of Tetravalent Pa231 in Cs2ZrCl6  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The paramagnetic relaxation time was measured for Pa4+ in the cubic matrix Cs2(99% Zr, 1% Pa) Cl6 between 1.4 and 4.2K, using pulse-saturation techniques. This complex, with its known and comparable spin-orbit and crystal field interactions, was chosen to determine whether the approximations for the orbit-lattice interaction, which are apparently valid for rare-earth ions, would remain so for ions of the 5f transition group. The data fit T1-1=A?T+C?T9, where A?=3.460.34 sec-1 deg-1 and C?=5.110-51.510-5 sec-1 deg-9. The static crystal field parameters A40?r4?=888 cm-1 and A60?r6?=41.9 cm-1 are used to estimate the coupling parameters |a4m?r4?| and |a6m?r6?| to the fourth- and sixth-degree spherical harmonics in the orbit-lattice interaction. The coupling to the second-degree spherical harmonics is treated in terms of a a single parameter |a20?r2?|. The speed of longitudinal sound waves in a polycrystalline sample of pure Cs2ZrCl6 was measured and found to be 4.5105 cm/sec. Using this value for the effective phonon velocity, the theoretical relaxation rate is computed in terms of the single parameter |a20?r2?|. A comparison with the experimental direct-process coefficient A? indicates |a20?r2?|?17 000 cm-1, while comparison with the Raman coefficient C? yields |a20?r2?|?30 000 cm-1. A dynamic point-charge model, based upon a phonon-induced distrotion of the octahedron of Cl- ions surrounding the Pa4+ site, shows that |a20?r2?| should be approximately 23 000 cm-1 if it is to be consistent with the values of |a4m?r4?| and |a6m?r6?| obtained from the static crystal field parameters. This reasonable agreement supports the contention that estimating correct order-of-magnitude spin-lattice relaxation rates by Orbach's simple phenomenological approach is not restricted to the rare-earth series.

Redesign of the SNS Modulator H-Bridge for Utilization of Press-Pack IGBTs  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The power conversion group at SLAC is currently redesigning the H-bridge switch plates of the High Voltage Converter Modulators at the Spallation Neutron Source. This integral part to the modulator operation has been indentified as a source of several modulator faults and potentially limits reliability with pulse width modulation operation. This paper is a presentation of the design and implementation of a redesigned switch plate based upon press-pack IGBTs.

Exact algorithms and APX-hardness results for geometric packing and covering problems  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We study several geometric set cover and set packing problems involving configurations of points and geometric objects in Euclidean space. We show that it is APX-hard to compute a minimum cover of a set of points in the plane by a family of axis-aligned fat rectangles, even when each rectangle is an ?-perturbed copy of a single unit square. We extend this result to several other classes of objects including almost-circular ellipses, axis-aligned slabs, downward shadows of line segments, downward shadows of graphs of cubic functions, fat semi-infinite wedges, 3-dimensional unit balls, and axis-aligned cubes, as well as some related hitting set problems. We also prove the APX-hardness of a related family of discrete set packing problems. Our hardness results are all proven by encoding a highly structured minimum vertex cover problem which we believe may be of independent interest. In contrast, we give a polynomial-time dynamic programming algorithm for geometric set cover where the objects are pseudodisks containing the origin or are downward shadows of pairwise 2-intersecting x-monotone curves. Our algorithm extends to the weighted case where a minimum-cost cover is required. We give similar algorithms for several related hitting set and discrete packing problems.

Oxidation of zirconium alloys in 2.5 kPa water vapor for tritium readiness.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A more reactive liner material is needed for use as liner and cruciform material in tritium producing burnable absorber rods (TPBAR) in commercial light water nuclear reactors (CLWR). The function of these components is to convert any water that is released from the Li-6 enriched lithium aluminate breeder material to oxide and hydrogen that can be gettered, thus minimizing the permeation of tritium into the reactor coolant. Fourteen zirconium alloys were exposed to 2.5 kPa water vapor in a helium stream at 300 C over a period of up to 35 days. Experimental alloys with aluminum, yttrium, vanadium, titanium, and scandium, some of which also included ternaries with nickel, were included along with a high nitrogen impurity alloy and the commercial alloy Zircaloy-2. They displayed a reactivity range of almost 500, with Zircaloy-2 being the least reactive.

Mechanism of the reaction Th232(d ,2n)Pa232  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The excitation function for the reaction Th232(d ,2n) Pa232 has been reinvestigated in the energy range 10-26 MeV, using a different technique, to check the earlier report of the existence of two maxima in the excitation function. The present results, while confirming the first maximum, have not shown any indication of a second peak. The shape of the present excitation function generally agrees with that predicted by the hybrid model. On this basis, the mechanism of the reaction could be explained in terms of the usual evaporation and preequilibrium decay of the compound system.NUCLEAR REACTIONS Th232 (d ,2n), E=10-26 MeV, measured ?(E), foil stack technique, ? counting method.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The ?-ray strength function in the quasicontinuum has been measured for 231233Th, 232,233Pa, and 237239U using the Oslo method. All eight nuclei show a pronounced increase in ? strength at ?SR?2.4 MeV, which is interpreted as the low-energy M1 scissors resonance (SR). The total strength is found to be BSR=911?N2 when integrated over the 14 MeV ?-energy region. The SR displays a double-hump structure that is theoretically not understood. Our results are compared with data from (?, ??) experiments and theoretical sum-rule estimates for a nuclear rigid-body moment of inertia.

Multipole character of the proposed 220 eV transition in Pa229  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Internal conversion coefficients (ICCs) have been calculated for protactinium and transition energies between 170 eV and 10 keV. The ICCs for E1 multipolarity show an unusual behavior, which cannot be approximated by an exponential dependence on the transition energy, whereas the ICCs for M1 and E2 multipolarities closely follow such a dependence. Using the newly calculated ICCs the unusually strong enhancement of a possible 220 eV E1 transition in Pa229 proposed earlier is reduced by a factor of ?5, yielding an induced electric dipole moment similar to that observed in the neighboring octupole-deformed isotopes.

Final evaluation of characterizing pipe-over-pack containers using high efficiency neutron counters  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Nondestructive assay (NDA) measurements of Transuranic (TRU) waste at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) packed in Pipe-over-Pack Containers (POC) contain a number of complexities. The POC is highly attenuating to both gamma rays and neutrons which presents a difficult waste matrix for correct quantification of material in the container. Currently there are a number ofPOC containers at LANL that require evaluation for shipment to the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) in Carlsbad, NM. Updated data has been evaluated that finalizes the evaluation of characterizing Pipe-Over-Pack Containers. Currently at LANL, a single instrument has been used to explore the appropriateness of both passive neutron and quantitative gamma ray methods for measuring POC's. The passive neutron approach uses the Reals coincidence count rate to establish plutonium mass and other parameters of interest for TRU waste. The quantitative gamma ray method assumes a homogeneous distribution of radioactive source material with the surrounding material throughout the drum volume. Drums are assayed with a calibration based on the known density of the matrix. Both methods are supplemented by a simultaneous isotopic measurement using Multi-Group Analysis (MGA) to determine the plutonium isotopic composition. If MGA fails to provide a viable isotopic result Fixed Energy Response function Analysis with Multiple efficiencies (FRAM) has been used to replace the MGA results. Acceptable Knowledge (AK) may also be used in certain instances. This report will discuss the two methods in detail. Included in the discussion will be descriptions of the setup parameters and calibration techniques for the instrument. A number of test measurements have been performed to compare HENC data with certified historical data. Empty POCs loaded with known sources have also been measured to determine the viability of the technique. A comparison between calorimetry data, historical measurements and HENC data will also be performed. The conclusion will show that the current calibration on the HENC units is viable for analysis of POCs.

Melanin Types Melanin Types Name: Irfan Location: N/A Country: N/A Date: N/A Question: What are different types of melanins? And what are the functions of these types? Replies: Hi Irfan! Melanin is a dark compound or better a photoprotective pigment. Its major role in the skin is to absorb the ultraviolet (UV) light that comes from the sun so the skin is not damaged. Sun exposure usually produces a tan at the skin that represents an increase of melanin pigment in the skin. Melanin is important also in other areas of the body, as the eye and the brain., but it is not completely understood what the melanin pigment does in these areas. Melanin forms a special cell called melanocyte. This cell is found in the skin, in the hair follicle, and in the iris and retina of the eye.

Stability of nickel-coated sand as gravel-pack material for thermal wells  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Laboratory flow tests have been carried out to study the stability of various nickel-coated sands under aqueous steam temperature and pH conditions that may exist in thermal recovery operations. Other gravel-pack materials tested include Ottawa sand, sintered bauxite, cement clinker, zirconium oxide, and nickel pellets. A comparison was made between the performances of these materials after exposure to identical thermal and hydrolytic conditions. Test results indicate that nickel-coated sands are highly resistant to dissolution at temperatures as high as 300/sup 0/C (570/sup 0/F) and to solution pH's from 4.75 to 11. Weight losses measured after a 72-hour period were less than 1%. In contrast, weight losses from sintered bauxite, zirconium oxide, and Ottawa sand dissolution tests were 30 to 70 times higher under the same conditions. Cement clinker losses were in the intermediate range under alkaline conditions. API standard crushing and acid-solubility tests for proppants also were performed on nickel-coated sands. These results were favorable in that they exceeded the recommended standards. This study of nickel-coated sand stability and mechanical strength has demonstrated its high potential for application as either a gravel-pack material or proppant in thermal recovery operations.

Geochemical data package for the Hanford immobilized low-activity tank waste performance assessment (ILAW PA)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Lockheed Martin Hanford Company (LMHC) is designing and assessing the performance of disposal facilities to receive radioactive wastes that are stored in single- and double-shell tanks at the Hanford Site. The preferred method of disposing of the portion that is classified as low-activity waste is to vitrify the liquid/slurry and place the solid product in near-surface, shallow-land burial facilities. The LMHC project to assess the performance of these disposal facilities is the Hanford Immobilized Low-Activity Tank Waste (ILAW) Performance Assessment (PA) activity. The goal of this project is to provide a reasonable expectation that the disposal of the waste is protective of the general public, groundwater resources, air resources, surface-water resources, and inadvertent intruders. Achieving this goal will require prediction of contaminant migration from the facilities. This migration is expected to occur primarily via the movement of water through the facilities, and the consequent transport of dissolved contaminants in the porewater of the vadose zone. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory assists LMHC in their performance assessment activities. One of the PNNL tasks is to provide estimates of the geochemical properties of the materials comprising the disposal facility, the disturbed region around the facility, and the physically undisturbed sediments below the facility (including the vadose zone sediments and the aquifer sediments in the upper unconfined aquifer). The geochemical properties are expressed as parameters that quantify the adsorption of contaminants and the solubility constraints that might apply for those contaminants that may exceed solubility constraints. The common parameters used to quantify adsorption and solubility are the distribution coefficient (K{sub d}) and the thermodynamic solubility product (K{sub sp}), respectively. In this data package, the authors approximate the solubility of contaminants using a more simplified construct, called the solution concentration limit, a constant value. In future geochemical data packages, they will determine whether a more rigorous measure of solubility is necessary or warranted based on the dose predictions emanating from the ILAW 2001 PA and reviewers' comments. The K{sub d}s and solution concentration limits for each contaminant are direct inputs to subsurface flow and transport codes used to predict the performance of the ILAW system. In addition to the best-estimate K{sub d}s, a reasonable conservative value and a range are provided. They assume that K{sub d} values are log normally distributed over the cited ranges. Currently, they do not give estimates for the range in solubility limits or their uncertainty. However, they supply different values for both the K{sub d}s and solution concentration limits for different spatial zones in the ILAW system and supply time-varying K{sub d}s for the concrete zone, should the final repository design include concrete vaults or cement amendments to buffer the system pH.

The Formation of Systems with Tightly-packed Inner Planets (STIPs) via Aerodynamic Drift  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The NASA Kepler mission has revealed an abundant class of Systems with Tightly-packed Inner Planets (STIPs). The current paradigm for planet formation suggests that small planetesimals will quickly spiral into the host star due to aerodynamic drag, preventing rocky planet formation. In contrast, we find that aerodynamic drift, when acting on an ensemble of solids, can concentrate mass at short orbital periods in gaseous disks. Sublimation fronts may further aid this process. Kepler data suggest that the innermost known planets are found near the silicate sublimation zone. STIP planets should have a wide range of volatile fractions due to aerodynamic drift and H2 dissociation-driven gas accretion. We further propose that the low mass of Mars is evidence that the Solar System was once a proto-STIP.

Understanding parasitic energy costs for PHEV conversion packs as we move toward V2G  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Building practical plug-in electric vehicles is under way at many car companies around the world, though it is expected that they will not be widely available in the USA for quite some time. The ultimate vehicle cost is controlled substantially by the battery storage capacity required and this, in turn, is governed by the vehicle size and performance expected by consumers. The present paper examines the specific situation where existing hybrid vehicles might be converted to plug-in functionality by adding a supplementary battery pack to extend the driving range while keeping the electric/gasoline hybrid drive-train intact. We examine fuel efficiency from the standpoint of vehicle weight to extract system parameters that quantify the extra fuel consumption associated with driving a slightly heavier vehicle after plug-in conversion has been effected. We show that only modest additional battery capacity is required to meet most commuter needs in a cost-effective manner.

Molecular structures and crystal packings of 2-styrylquinoline and its derivatives  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The crystal and molecular structures of five styrylheterocycles of the quinoline series are studied. All molecules are planar. The double bond in the ethylene fragment is essentially localized. In the molecule of 2-(4-methylstyryl)quinoline, the ethylene fragment is disordered by the bicycle-pedal pattern. In four of the five compounds, the crystal packings do not contain stacking dimers prearranged for the [2+2] photocycloaddition (PCA) reaction. In the crystal of 2-(3-nitrostyryl)quinoline, pairs of crystallographically independent molecules form stacking dimers. In a dimer, the ethylene fragments have a twist orientation, which is incompatible with the PCA reaction. An attempt to initiate a temperature-dependent process of bicyclepedal isomerization in the crystal and, as a consequence, the PCA reaction by means of simultaneous irradiation and heating of a single crystal is unsuccessful.

Directional couplers, two interacting optical waveguides placed in close proximity, are important building blocks in these integrated photonics circuits and have been employed as optical modulators and switches for high speed communication, data processing and integrated quantum operations. However, active control over the coupling between closely packed waveguides is highly desirable and yet remains a critical barrier towards ultra small footprint devices. A general approach to achieve active control in waveguide systems is to exploit optical nonlinearities enabled by a strong control pulse. However these devices suffer from the nonlinear absorption induced by the intense control pulse as the signal and its control propagate in the same waveguide. Here we experimentally demonstra...

Efficient design of desalination system using photovoltaic and packed bed systems  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This work presents a new way to realize continuous operation of a solar desalination system to produce fresh water using solar energy for a dual purpose. Here, solar energy is used directly as heat energy through solar radiation incident on an inverse V-shape still cover during sunlight hours. At the same time, the solar energy can be converted through a photovoltaic (PV) array into electric energy, which is stored in the battery system during sunlight hours. To realize the continuity of still operation daily and overnight, the batteries are discharged during the night at a suitable rate to feed an electric heater. The electric heater is designed to generate the required heat for desalination during the night. The heat is equivalent to that which can be absorbed during the day and that gives the temperature difference to gain evaporation and fresh water (productivity). This modified still is provided with a packed bed layer installed in the bottom of the basin to assist the system during the day and at night, i.e., this modified still will be more efficient. The quantity of heat energy during the night is adjusted to give a saline water temperature in the range that occurs in the actual solar still during sunlight hours. The performance of all components of the present still are discussed. The use of PV and backed bed systems means higher efficiency than the passive still, as the modified still produces large quantities of fresh water in August for a saline water depth of 0.01 m by using glass wool insulation 0.05 m thick and glass spheres as a packed bed with 0.0213 m bed length.

Phase behavior of carbon dioxide in admixture with n-butane, n-decane, n-butylcyclohexane, and n-butylbenzene at 344 K and approximately 9600 kPa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Bubble point pressure data were acquired at 344 K and about 9600 kPa on ternary mixtures of carbon dioxide and n-butane with paraffinic (n-decane), naphthenic (n-butylcyclohexane), and aromatic (n-butylbenzene) compounds to determine what effect differences in compound type might have on carbon dioxide-hydrocarbon miscibility of such systems. The data on carbon dioxide-n-butane-n-decane, when compared with those from the literature, showed good agreement. This suggests that the remaining data reported here are reliable. The data were regressed by using the Soave-Redlich-Kwong equation of state to determine interaction coefficient sets for phase behavior prediction. These sets of interaction coefficients were used to calculate carbon dioxide-hydrocarbon miscibility. No significant difference in miscibility was found as the heavy hydrocarbon compound was changed from paraffinic to naphthenic to aromatic type.

When we culture these bacteria, we used four methods: plates, broth, slants, and pour plates. The media was made of TSB, TSA, NAP, and NAD. What is significant about these culturing methods? Replies: I could give you the answer to that question but it is more informative, and fun, to find out yourself. Start with the NCBI library online (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/) and do a query with the species name, and 'virulence' if you want to know what they're doing to us. Have a look at the taxonomy devision to see how they are related. To find out if they're gram-pos or neg you should do a gram stain if you can. Otherwise you'll find that information in any bacteriology determination guide. Your question about the media is not specific enough so I can't answer it.

UNREVIEWED DISPOSAL QUESTION EVALUATION: IMPACT OF NEW INFORMATION SINCE 2008 PA ON CURRENT LOW-LEVEL SOLID WASTE OPERATIONS  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Solid low-level waste disposal operations are controlled in part by an E-Area Low-Level Waste Facility (ELLWF) Performance Assessment (PA) that was completed by the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) in 2008 (WSRC 2008). Since this baseline analysis, new information pertinent to disposal operations has been identified as a natural outcome of ongoing PA maintenance activities and continuous improvement in model simulation techniques (Flach 2013). An Unreviewed Disposal Question (UDQ) Screening (Attachment 1) has been initiated regarding the continued ability of the ELLWF to meet Department of Energy (DOE) Order 435.1 performance objectives in light of new PA items and data identified since completion of the original UDQ Evaluation (UDQE). The present UDQE assesses the ability of Solid Waste (SW) to meet performance objectives by estimating the influence of new information items on a recent sum-of-fractions (SOF) snapshot for each currently active E-Area low-level waste disposal unit. A final SOF, as impacted by this new information, is projected based on the assumptions that the current disposal limits, Waste Information Tracking System (WITS) administrative controls, and waste stream composition remain unchanged through disposal unit operational closure (Year 2025). Revision 1 of this UDQE addresses the following new PA items and data identified since completion of the original UDQE report in 2013: ? New K{sub d} values for iodine, radium and uranium ? Elimination of cellulose degradation product (CDP) factors ? Updated radionuclide data ? Changes in transport behavior of mobile radionuclides ? Potential delay in interim closure beyond 2025 ? Component-in-grout (CIG) plume interaction correction Consideration of new information relative to the 2008 PA baseline generally indicates greater confidence that PA performance objectives will be met than indicated by current SOF metrics. For SLIT9, the previous prohibition of non-crushable containers in revision 0 of this UDQE has rendered the projected final SOF for SLIT9 less than the WITS Admin Limit. With respect to future disposal unit operations in the East Slit Trench Group, consideration of new information for Slit Trench#14 (SLIT14) reduced the current SOF for the limiting All-Pathways 200-1000 year period (AP2) by an order of magnitude and by one quarter for the Beta-Gamma 12-100 year period (BG2) pathway. On the balance, updates to K{sub d} values and dose factors and elimination of CDP factors (generally favorable) more than compensated for the detrimental impact of a more rigorous treatment of plume dispersion. These observations suggest that future operations in the East Slit Trench Group can be conducted with higher confidence using current inventory limits, and that limits could be increased if desired for future low-level waste disposal units. The same general conclusion applies to future STs in the West Slit Trench Group based on the Impacted Final SOFs for existing STs in that area.

Resin Liner Recovery and Over-Packing at Ontario Power Generation's Western Waste Management Facility  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Spent resins generated from Ontario Power Generation (OPG)'s and Bruce Power's Candu reactor operations are stored at OPG's Western Waste Management Facility in Kincardine, Ontario, Canada. The older resins are contained in 3 m{sup 3} epoxy-coated cylindrical carbon steel containers known as resin liners. The liners are stored in a stacked configuration within cylindrical in-ground containers. Previous studies indicated evidence of unacceptable liner wall corrosion and the potential for eventual leakage of resin from the liners. Based on this, OPG elected to re-package the majority of the resin liners into stainless steel over-packs. A contract for this work was awarded to a project team consisting of Duratek of Canada, Kinectrics, Inc. and E.S. Fox. This paper provides an overall summary of project activities focusing on the effectiveness of the equipment utilized and the soundness of the developed programs, plans and procedures. Specific information is provided on key aspects of the project and the overall achievement of project goals. (authors)

Evaluation of a subsurface oxygenation technique using colloidal gas aphron injections into packed column reactors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Bioremediation may be a remedial technology capable of decontaminating subsurface environments. The objective of this research was to evaluate the use of colloidal gas aphron (CGA) injection, which is the injection of micrometer-size air bubbles in an aqueous surfactant solution, as a subsurface oxygenation technique to create optimal growth conditions for aerobic bacteria. Along with this, the capability of CGAs to act as a soil-washing agent and free organic components from a coal tar-contaminated matrix was examined. Injection of CGAs may be useful for remediation of underground coal gasification (UCG) sites. Because of this, bacteria and solid material from a UCG site located in northeastern Wyoming were used in this research. Colloidal gas aphrons were generated and pumped through packed column reactors (PCRS) containing post-burn core materials. For comparison, PCRs containing sand were also studied. Bacteria from this site were tested for their capability to degrade phenol, a major contaminant at the UCG site, and were also used to bioaugment the PCR systems. In this study we examined: (1) the effect of CGA injection on dissolved oxygen concentrations in the PCR effluents, (2) the effect of CGA, H[sub 2]O[sub 2], and phenol injections on bacterial populations, (3) the stability and transport of CGAs over distance, and (4) CGA injection versus H[sub 2]O[sub 2] injection as an oxygenation technique.

Modeling of passive thermal management for electric vehicle battery packs with PCM between cells  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A passive thermal management system is examined for an electric vehicle battery pack. Phase change material (PCM) is infused in foam layers separating the lithium-ion (Li-ion) cells. Known operating conditions lead to selecting a suitable PCM for the application, n-octadecane wax. Suitable porous foam for infusion is decided on through experimentation. Finite volume based simulations are conducted to study the thermal behavior of a 4 cell sub-module. The effect of different discharge rates are compared for this sub-module, with and without the PCM's presence. The results show that the maximum temperature in the system is decreased up to 7.3K by replacing dry foam with PCM-soaked wet foam. The addition of PCM also makes the temperature distribution more uniform across the cells. The modeling results give indication of the quantity of PCM required, show the influence of the transient melt behavior under dynamic operating conditions, and examine design constraints associated with this approach.

Effect of Bubbles on Liquid Nitrogen Breakdown in Plane-Plane Electrode Geometry From 100-250 kPa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Liquid nitrogen (LN(2)) is used as the cryogen and dielectric for many high temperature superconducting, high voltage applications. When a quench in the superconductor occurs, bubbles are generated which can affect the dielectric breakdown properties of the LN(2). Experiments were performed using plane-plane electrode geometry where bubbles were introduced into the gap through a pinhole in the ground electrode. Bubbles were generated using one or more kapton heaters producing heater powers up to 30 W. Pressure was varied from 100-250 kPa. Breakdown strength was found to be relatively constant up to a given heater power and pressure at which the breakdown strength drops to a low value depending on the pressure. After the drop the breakdown strength continues to drop gradually at higher heater power. This is particularly illustrated at 100 kPa. After the drop in breakdown strength the breakdown is believed to be due to the formation of a vapor bridge. Also the heater power at which the breakdown strength changes from that of LN(2) to that of gaseous nitrogen increases with increasing pressure. The data can provide design constraints for high temperature superconducting fault current limiters (FCLs) so that the formation of a vapor bridge can be suppressed or avoided.

Thermal stability of the endohedral fullerenes NaC60, NaC70, and PaC60  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Nitrogen and phosphorus atoms enclosed in fullerenes keep their atomic ground-state configuration, and no charge transfer or covalent bonding to the cage occurs. These systems can be dissolved in organic solvents and reacted with addends without losing the atomic character of the guest atom. In this paper, we present a detailed study of the annealing behavior of NaC60, NaC70, PaC60, and of some NaC60 adducts. The disintegration of these systems, as recorded by electron paramagnetic resonance measurements, occurs in the temperature range between 400 K and 600 K. The results are in qualitative agreement with potential energy calculations and confirm the proposed escape mechanism that proceeds via bond formation of the trapped atom with the cage. It is found that other combinations of group-V elements with fullerenes, e.g., NaC84, PaC70, and AsaC60 are not stable at room temperature. The escape mechanism and the possibility of disabling this path are discussed.

Molecular Separations Using Micro- Molecular Separations Using Micro- Defect Free Ultra-Thin Films Background Current methods for separating carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) from methane (CH 4 ) in fuel gas streams are energy and cost-intensive. Molecular sieve membrane development for carbon capture has been pursued for several decades because of the potential these membranes have for high selectivity while using less energy than cryogenic separation methods and greater flux (permselectivity) than is possible from polymeric membranes. However, the adoption of molecular sieve membrane technology has been hindered by high production costs and the micro-defect fissures that always accompany this type of membrane when fabricated using conventional techniques.

Several pilot- to intermediate-scale carbon storage projects have been performed in the U.S. and across the world. However, some hurdles still exist before carbon storage becomes a reality in the U.S. at a large scale. From a technical point of view, carbon storage risk analysis is complicated by the fact that all geologic storage sites are not created equally.

Degradation of TBC Systems in Degradation of TBC Systems in Environments Relevant to Advanced Gas Turbines for IGCC Systems- University of Pittsburgh Background The conditions inside integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) systems, such as high steam levels from hydrogen firing, high carbon dioxide steam mixtures in oxy- fired systems, and different types of contaminants, introduce complexities associated with thermal barrier coating (TBC) durability that are currently unresolved. In this work the University of Pittsburgh will team with Praxair Surface Technologies (PST) to deter- mine the degradation mechanisms of current state-of-the-art TBCs in environments consisting of deposits and gas mixtures that are representative of gas turbines using coal-derived synthesis gas (syngas).

A generalization of Thue's theorem to packings of non-equal discs, and an application to a discrete approximation of entropy  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

In this paper we generalize the classical theorem of Thue about the optimal circular disc packing in the plane. We are given a family of circular discs, not necessarily of equal radii, with the property that the inflation of every disc by a factor of $2$ around its center does not contain any center of another disc in the family (notice that this implies that the family of discs is a packing). We show that in this case the density of the given packing is at most $\\frac{\\pi}{2\\sqrt{3}}$, which is the density of the optimal unit disc packing. This result is used to obtain a discrete approximation to the Entropy functional in two dimensional domain.

Influence of relative humidity and loading frequency on the PA6.6 thermomechanical cyclic behavior: Part II. Energy aspects  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In this study, we investigated the influence of relative humidity (RH) and loading rate on the energy response of PA6.6 matrix specimens. The latter were subjected to oligocyclic tensile-tensile tests at 3 different RH and 2 loading rates. Infrared thermography was used to obtain a direct estimate of heat sources using the heat diffusion equation. Using the mechanical and thermal responses discussed in the first part of this work, complete energy rate balances were drawn up. In particular, the time courses of deformation, and dissipated and stored energy rates are discussed. The strong influence of the loading frequency and RH on the energy storage mechanisms is also highlighted.

{sup 226}Ra and {sup 231}Pa systematics of axial MORB, crustal residence ages, and magma chamber characteristics at 9--10{degree}N East Pacific Rise  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Mass spectrometric measurements of {sup 30}Th-22{sup 226}Ra and {sup 235}-U{sup 231}Pa disequilibria for axial basalts are used to determine crustal residence ages for MORB magma and investigate the temporal and spatial characteristics of axial magma chambers (AMC) at 9--10{degrees}N East Pacific Rise (EPR). Relative crustal residence ages can be calculated from variations in {sup 226}Ra/{sup 230}Th and {sup 231}Pa/{sup 235}U activity ratios for axial lavas, if (1) mantle sources and melting are uniform, and mantle transfer times are constant or rapid for axial N-MORB, and (2) {sup 231}Pa/{sup 235}U and {sup 226}Ra/{sup 230}Th in the melt are unaffected by shallow level fractional crystallization. Uniform Th, Sr, and Nd isotopic systematics and incompatible element ratios for N-MORB along the 9--10{degrees}N segment indicate that mantle sources and transfer times are similar. In addition, estimated bulk solid/melt partition coefficients for U, Th, and Pa are small, hence effects of fractional crystallization on {sup 231}Pa/{sup 235}U ratios for the melt are expected to be negligible. However, fractional crystallization of plagioclase in the AMC would lower {sup 226}Ra/{sup 230}Th ratios in the melt and produce a positive bias in {sup 226}Ra crustal residence ages for fractionated lavas.

Cross sections of the reaction Pa231(d,3n)U230 for the production of U230/Th226 for targeted ? therapy  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

U230 and its daughter nuclide Th226 are novel therapeutic nuclides for application in targeted ? therapy of cancer. We investigated the feasibility of producing U230/Th226 via deuteron irradiation of Pa231 according to the reaction Pa231(d,3n)U230. The experimental excitation function for a deuteron-induced reaction on Pa231 is reported for the first time. Cross sections were measured using thin targets of Pa231 prepared by electrodeposition and U230 yields were analysed using ? spectrometry. Beam energies were calculated from measured beam orbits and compared with the values obtained via monitor reactions on aluminium foils using high-resolution ? spectrometry and IAEA recommended cross sections. Beam intensities were determined using a beam current integrator. The experimental cross sections are in excellent agreement with model calculations allowing for deuteron breakup using the EMPIRE 3 code. According to thick-target yields calculated from the experimental excitation function, the reaction Pa231(d,3n)U230 allows the production of U230/Th226 at moderate levels.

Investigation of biomass combustion systems using CFD techniques: a parametric study of packed-bed burning characteristics  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In this paper, mathematical equations governing the fluid flow, heat and mass transfer and heterogeneous reactions in packed-bed combustion systems are described and sub-models for individual processes are presented. A model estimating the mixing rate between the under-grate air and the released volatile gases is described. Parametric study was carried out to assess the effects of fuel moisture content, kinetic rate of devolatilisation, primary air flow rate and particle mixing levels caused by grate movement. Useful conclusions were drawn in terms of flame temperature, reaction zone thickness, mass loss rate, combustion staging and residual carbon in ash.

Evidence for O+ and 1- Levels in U234 Populated in the One-Minute Beta Decay of Pa234  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A directional correlation measurement has been performed on the 250-kev vs (751+795)-kev composite cascade in U234 following the 24-day beta decay of Th234 and the subsequent one-minute beta decay of Pa234. The "770"-kev (751+795 kev) composite photopeak spectrum coincident with the 250-kev gamma ray was displayed on a multichannel pulse-height analyzer for different positions of the scintillation counters. From these spectra the directional correlations between the 250-kev gamma ray and the lower and upper sides of the 770-kev composite line were measured. The results together with other measurements are consistent with assignments of multipolarity E1 to the 250-, 751-, and 795-kev gamma rays and spin and parity assignments 0+-1--2+ and 0+-1--0+ to the levels involved in the 250-751 kev and 250-795 kev gamma-gamma cascades, respectively. Thus new levels are proposed at 795 and 1046 kev with spin and parity 1- and 0+, respectively.

Acetaldehyde removal using an atmospheric non-thermal plasma combined with a packed bed: Role of the adsorption process  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract This work is an attempt in order to help towards understanding the influence of the adsorption process on the removal of a VOC (acetaldehyde, CH3CHO) using cyclic non thermal plasma (NTP) combined with a packed-bed of a catalyst support, ?-Al2O3. In the first part, the results obtained by placing the saturated alumina pellets inside the plasma discharge zone are discussed, in terms of acetaldehyde removal, CO and CO2 production. In the second part, adsorption of CH3CHO, CO, CO2 and O3 was carried out, from single and multicomponent mixtures of the different compounds. The results showed that (i) the adsorption capacities followed the order CH 3 CHO ? ? ? CO 2 ? > ? CO ; (ii) O3 was decomposed on the alumina surface; (iii) CO oxidation occurred on the surface when O3 was present. In the third part, diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFTS) was used to follow the alumina surface during acetaldehyde adsorption. DRIFTS measurements demonstrated that besides the bands of molecularly adsorbed acetaldehyde, several absorptions appeared on the spectra showing the intermediate surface transformation of acetaldehyde already at 300K. Finally, the relationship between the adsorption results and the NTP combined with a packed-bed process is discussed.

Hausdorff and packing spectra, large deviations, and free energy for branching random walks in $\\R^d$  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Consider an $\\R^d$-valued branching random walk (BRW) on a supercritical Galton Watson tree. Without any assumption on the distribution of this BRW we compute, almost surely and simultaneously, the Hausdorff and packing dimensions of the level sets $E(K)$ of infinite branches in the boundary of the tree (endowed with its standard metric) along which the averages of the BRW have a given closed connected set of limit points $K$. This goes beyond multifractal analysis, which only considers those level sets when $K$ ranges in the set of singletons $\\{\\alpha\\}$, $\\alpha\\in\\R^d$. We also give a $0$-$\\infty$ law for the Hausdorff and packing measures of the level sets $E(\\{\\alpha\\})$, and compute the free energy of the associated logarithmically correlated random energy model in full generality. Moreover, our results complete the previous works on multifractal analysis by including the levels $\\alpha$ which do not belong to the range of the gradient of the free energy. This covers in particular a situation until now badly understood, namely the case where a first order phase transition occurs. As a consequence of our study, we can also describe the whole singularity spectrum of Mandelbrot measures, as well as the associated free energy function (or $L^q$-spectrum), when a first order phase transition occurs.

Experimental and modeling study of catalytic steam reforming of methane mixture with propylene in a packed bed reactor  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Producer gas from biomass gasification contains mainly hydrogen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, methane and some other low molecular hydrocarbons like propylene. This paper reports mathematical simulation and experimental study of steam reforming of methane mixture with propylene in a packed bed reactor filled with nickel based catalysts. Due to the high heat input through the reformer tube wall and the endothermic reforming reactions, a two-dimensional pseudo-heterogeneous model that takes into account the diffusion reaction phenomena in gas phase as well as inside the catalyst particles has been used to represent temperature distribution and species concentration within the reactor. Steam reforming of propylene is faster and more selective than methane and it is shown that addition of propylene to the methane steam mixture reduces the conversion of methane. The obtained results play a key role in optimization and design of a commercial reactor.

First proton-pair breaking in semi-magic nuclei beyond 132Sn and 208Pb: Configuration of the long-lived isomer of 217Pa  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The close similarity between the shell structures in the 132Sn and 208Pb regions is a well known phenomenon. Thus, using the correspondence between the high-j orbits located above the Z=50 and Z=82 shell gaps, we discuss the evolutions of the fully aligned states with one broken proton pair in the N=82 and N=126 isotones. A long-lived isomeric state was discovered in 217Pa more than thirty years ago and, despite two other experiments giving new experimental results, the discussions on its main properties (spin, parity, configuration) remained inconclusive. Then, using the comparison with the I?=17/2+ isomeric state recently measured in 139La, the isomeric state of 217Pa is assigned as the fully aligned state of the (?h9/2)2(?f7/2)1 configuration.

New calculation for the neutron-induced fission cross section of Pa233 between 1.0 and 3.0MeV  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Pa233(n,f) cross section, a key ingredient for fast reactors and accelerators driven systems, was measured recently with relatively good accuracy [F. Tovesson et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 062502 (2002)]. The results are at strong variance with accepted evaluations and an existing indirect experiment. This circumstance led us to perform a quite detailed and complete evaluation of the Pa233(n,f) cross section between 1.0 and 3.0MeV, where use of our newly developed routines for the parametrization of the nuclear surface and the calculation of deformation parameters and level densities (including low-energy discrete levels) were made. The results show good quantitative and excellent qualitative agreement with the experimental direct data obtained by Tovesson et al. [F. Tovesson et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 88, 062502 (2002)]. Additionally, our methodology opens new possibilities for the analysis of subthreshold fission and above threshold second-chance fission for both Pa233 and its decay product U233, as well as other strategically important fissionable nuclides.

Rock types, pore types, and hydrocarbon exploration  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A proposed exploration-oriented method of classifying porosity in sedimentary rocks is based on microscopic examination cores or cuttings. Factors include geometry, size, abundance, and connectivity of the pores. The porosity classification is predictive of key petrophysical characteristics: porosity-permeability relationships, capillary pressures, and (less certainly) relative permeabilities. For instance, intercrystalline macroporosity typically is associated with high permeability for a given porosity, low capillarity, and favorable relative permeabilities. This is found to be true whether this porosity type occurs in a sucrosic dolomite or in a sandstone with pervasive quartz overgrowths. This predictive method was applied in three Rocky Mountain oil plays. Subtle pore throat traps could be recognized in the J sandstone (Cretaceous) in the Denver basin of Colorado by means of porosity permeability plotting. Variations in hydrocarbon productivity from a Teapot Formation (Cretaceous) field in the Powder River basin of Wyoming were related to porosity types and microfacies; the relationships were applied to exploration. Rock and porosity typing in the Red River Formation (Ordovician) reconciled apparent inconsistencies between drill-stem test, log, and mud-log data from a Williston basin wildcat. The well was reevaluated and completed successfully, resulting in a new field discovery. In each of these three examples, petrophysics was fundamental for proper evaluation of wildcat wells and exploration plays.

Determination of the Pa233(n,f) reaction cross section from 11.5 to 16.5 MeV neutron energy by the hybrid surrogate ratio approach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A new hybrid surrogate ratio approach has been employed to determine neutron-induced fission cross sections of Pa233 in the energy range of 11.5 to 16.5 MeV for the first time. The fission probability of Pa234 and U236 compound nuclei produced in Th232(Li6, ?)Pa234 and Th232(Li6, d)U236 transfer reaction channels has been measured at Elab=38.0 MeV in the excitation energy range of 17.0 to 22.0 MeV within the framework of the absolute surrogate method. The Pa233(n,f) cross sections are then deduced from the measured fission decay probability ratios of Pa234 and U236 compound nuclei using the surrogate ratio method. The Pa233(n,f) cross section data from the present experiment along with the data from the literature, covering the neutron energy range of 1.0 to 16.5 MeV have been compared with the predictions of statistical model code EMPIRE-2.19. While the present data are consistent with the model predictions, there is a discrepancy between the earlier experimental data and EMPIRE-2.19 predictions in the neutron energy range of 7.0 to 10.0 MeV.

Densities and isobaric vapor-liquid equilibria of butyl esters (methanoate to butanoate) with ethanol at 101.32 kPa  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Vapor-liquid equilibrium and densities at 101.32 kPa have been determined for the binary systems formed by four butyl esters (from methanoate to butanoate) with ethanol. The four systems exhibit positive deviations from ideal behavior, and all data (p-T-x-y) were found to be thermodynamically consistent. The activity coefficients and the dimensionless function G{sup E}/RT of the solution were correlated with its concentration by different equations. Am azeotrope was found in the mixture butyl methanoate (1) + ethanol (2) at T = 350.9 K and x{sub 1} = y{sub 1} = 0.088. The group contribution models ASOG and modified UNIFAC gave fair predictions.

Types of quantum information  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Quantum, in contrast to classical, information theory, allows for different incompatible types (or species) of information which cannot be combined with each other. Distinguishing these incompatible types is useful in understanding the role of the two classical bits in teleportation (or one bit in one-bit teleportation), for discussing decoherence in information-theoretic terms, and for giving a proper definition, in quantum terms, of ``classical information.'' Various examples (some updating earlier work) are given of theorems which relate different incompatible kinds of information, and thus have no counterparts in classical information theory.

Using MonteCarlo simulations and free-energy calculations, we determine the phase diagram of a family of truncated hard cubes, where the shape evolves smoothly from a cube via a cuboctahedron to an octahedron. A remarkable diversity in crystal phases and close-packed structures is found, including a fully degenerate crystal structure, several plastic crystals, as well as vacancy-stabilized crystal phases, all depending sensitively on the precise particle shape. Our results illustrate the intricate relation between phase behavior and building-block shape, and can guide future experimental studies on polyhedral-shaped nanoparticles.

Evaluation of packed-bed and fluidized-bed cell technology for the destruction and removal of contaminants in alkaline waste solutions. Final report  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Disposing of the large quantity of nuclear waste that has been produced within the DOE complex is an area of active research and development. Electrochemical processes have been reported for the treatment of alkaline wastes including the destruction of nitrate and nitrite and the removal of metals such as Tc and Ru. Electrolytic recovery of metals from dilute solution has been reported using conventional porous electrodes such as felt electrode and reticulated electrode, but use of such electrodes is limited. The pores of such electrodes become blocked as a consequence of metal deposition. If an attempt is made to regenerate these electrodes by dissolution of the deposited metals, oxygen evolution on the matrix competes with dissolution of metals deposited within the pores. On the other hand, the use of three dimensional packed-bed and fluidized-bed electrodes having large surface area per unit volume would offer an improvement on felt or reticulated system because of the greater ease of regeneration.

THE SCHMIDT-KENNICUTT LAW OF MATCHED-AGE STAR-FORMING REGIONS; Pa{alpha} OBSERVATIONS OF THE EARLY-PHASE INTERACTING GALAXY TAFFY I  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In order to test a recent hypothesis that the dispersion in the Schmidt-Kennicutt law arises from variations in the evolutionary stage of star-forming molecular clouds, we compared molecular gas and recent star formation in an early-phase merger galaxy pair, Taffy I (UGC 12915/UGC 12914, VV 254) which went through a direct collision 20 Myr ago and whose star-forming regions are expected to have similar ages. Narrowband Pa{alpha} image is obtained using the ANIR near-infrared camera on the mini-TAO 1 m telescope. The image enables us to derive accurate star formation rates within the galaxy directly. The total star formation rate, 22.2 M{sub Sun} yr{sup -1}, was found to be much higher than previous estimates. Ages of individual star-forming blobs estimated from equivalent widths indicate that most star-forming regions are {approx}7 Myr old, except for a giant H II region at the bridge which is much younger. Comparison between star formation rates and molecular gas masses for the regions with the same age exhibits a surprisingly tight correlation, a slope of unity, and star formation efficiencies comparable to those of starburst galaxies. These results suggest that Taffy I has just evolved into a starburst system after the collision, and the star-forming sites are at a similar stage in their evolution from natal molecular clouds except for the bridge region. The tight Schmidt-Kennicutt law supports the scenario that dispersion in the star formation law is in large part due to differences in evolutionary stage of star-forming regions.

SHIPMENT OF NON-TRADITIONAL CONTENTS IN THE 9977 TYPE B PACKAGE  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The 9977 is a certified Type B Packaging authorized to ship uranium and plutonium in metal and oxide forms. These materials are typically confined within metallic containers designed for ease of handling and to prevent the spread of contamination. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) uses Pu and U sources for the training of domestic and international customs agents in the identification and detection of radioactive materials (RAM). These materials are packed in polycarbonate containers which permit the trainees to view the RAM. The safety basis was made to authorize the use of these unusual containers. The inclusion of the PNNL Training Source Contents into the 9977 Packaging imposed unique conditions previously unanalyzed. The use of polycarbonate as a content container material, while different from any configuration previously considered, does not raise any safety issues with the package which continues to operate with a large safety margin for temperatures, pressures, containment, dose rates, and subcriticality.

Tornado type wind turbines  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A tornado type wind turbine has a vertically disposed wind collecting tower with spaced apart inner and outer walls and a central bore. The upper end of the tower is open while the lower end of the structure is in communication with a wind intake chamber. An opening in the wind chamber is positioned over a turbine which is in driving communication with an electrical generator. An opening between the inner and outer walls at the lower end of the tower permits radially flowing air to enter the space between the inner and outer walls while a vertically disposed opening in the wind collecting tower permits tangentially flowing air to enter the central bore. A porous portion of the inner wall permits the radially flowing air to interact with the tangentially flowing air so as to create an intensified vortex flow which exits out of the top opening of the tower so as to create a low pressure core and thus draw air through the opening of the wind intake chamber so as to drive the turbine.

HTR-PROTEUS PEBBLE BED EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM CORE 4: RANDOM PACKING WITH A 1:1 MODERATOR-TO-FUEL PEBBLE RATIO  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In its deployment as a pebble bed reactor (PBR) critical facility from 1992 to 1996, the PROTEUS facility was designated as HTR-PROTEUS. This experimental program was performed as part of an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on the Validation of Safety Related Physics Calculations for Low Enriched HTGRs. Within this project, critical experiments were conducted for graphite moderated LEU systems to determine core reactivity, flux and power profiles, reaction-rate ratios, the worth of control rods, both in-core and reflector based, the worth of burnable poisons, kinetic parameters, and the effects of moisture ingress on these parameters. One benchmark experiment was evaluated in this report: Core 4. Core 4 represents the only configuration with random pebble packing in the HTR-PROTEUS series of experiments, and has a moderator-to-fuel pebble ratio of 1:1. Three random configurations were performed. The initial configuration, Core 4.1, was rejected because the method for pebble loading, separate delivery tubes for the moderator and fuel pebbles, may not have been completely random; this core loading was rejected by the experimenters. Cores 4.2 and 4.3 were loaded using a single delivery tube, eliminating the possibility for systematic ordering effects. The second and third cores differed slightly in the quantity of pebbles loaded (40 each of moderator and fuel pebbles), stacked height of the pebbles in the core cavity (0.02 m), withdrawn distance of the stainless steel control rods (20 mm), and withdrawn distance of the autorod (30 mm). The 34 coolant channels in the upper axial reflector and the 33 coolant channels in the lower axial reflector were open. Additionally, the axial graphite fillers used in all other HTR-PROTEUS configurations to create a 12-sided core cavity were not used in the randomly packed cores. Instead, graphite fillers were placed on the cavity floor, creating a funnel-like base, to discourage ordering effects during pebble loading. Core 4 was determined to be acceptable benchmark experiment.

Types of Lighting in Commercial Buildings - Lighting Types  

U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) Indexed Site

Lighting Types Lighting Types The following are the most widely used types of lighting equipment used in commercial buildings. Characteristics such as energy efficiency, light quality, and lifetime vary by lamp type. Standard Fluorescent A fluorescent lamp consists of a sealed gas-filled tube. The gas in the tube consists of a mixture of low pressure mercury vapor and an inert gas such as argon. The inner surface of the tube has a coating of phosphor powder. When an electrical current is applied to electrodes in the tube, the mercury vapor emits ultraviolet radiation which then causes the phosphor coating to emit visible light (the process is termed fluorescence). A ballast is required to regulate and control the current and voltage. Two types of ballasts are used, magnetic and electronic. Electronic ballasts

Classification of GHZ-type, W-type and GHZ-W-type multiqubit entanglements  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We propose the concept of SLOCC-equivalent basis (SEB) in the multiqubit space. In particular, two special SEBs, the GHZ-type and the W-type basis are introduced. They can make up a more general family of multiqubit states, the GHZ-W-type states, which is a useful kind of entanglement for quantum teleporatation and error correction. We completely characterize the property of this type of states, and mainly classify the GHZ-type states and the W-type states in a regular way, which is related to the enumerative combinatorics. Many concrete examples are given to exhibit how our method is used for the classification of these entangled states.

Effect of air flow rate and fuel moisture on the burning behaviours of biomass and simulated municipal solid wastes in packed beds  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Combustion of biomass and municipal solid wastes is one of the key areas in the global cleaner energy strategy. But there is still a lack of detailed and systematically theoretical study on the packed bed burning of biomass and municipal solid wastes. The advantage of theoretical study lies in its ability to reveal features of the detailed structure of the burning process inside a solid bed, such as reaction zone thickness, combustion staging, rates of individual sub-processes, gas emission and char burning characteristics. These characteristics are hard to measure by conventional experimental techniques. In this paper, mathematical simulations as well as experiments have been carried out for the combustion of wood chips and the incineration of simulated municipal solid wastes in a bench-top stationary bed and the effects of primary air flow rate and moisture level in the fuel have been assessed over wide ranges. It is found that volatile release as well as char burning intensifies with an increase in the primary air flow until a critical point is reached where a further increase in the primary air results in slowing down of the combustion process; a higher primary airflow also reduces the char fraction burned in the final char-burning-only stage, shifts combustion in the bed to a more fuel-lean environment and reduces CO emission at the bed top; an increase in the moisture level in the fuel produces a higher flame front temperature in the bed at low primary air flow rates.

Packed-Bed Reactor Study of NETL Sample 196c for the Removal of Carbon Dioxide from Simulated Flue Gas Mixture  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An amine-based solid sorbent process to remove CO2 from flue gas has been investigated. The sorbent consists of polyethylenimine (PEI) immobilized onto silica (SiO2) support. Experiments were conducted in a packed-bed reactor and exit gas composition was monitored using mass spectrometry. The effects of feed gas composition (CO2 and H2O), temperature, and simulated steam regeneration were examined for both the silica support as well as the PEI-based sorbent. The artifact of the empty reactor was also quantified. Sorbent CO2 capacity loading was compared to thermogravimetric (TGA) results to further characterize adsorption isotherms and better define CO2 working capacity. Sorbent stability was monitored by periodically repeating baseline conditions throughout the parametric testing and replacing with fresh sorbent as needed. The concept of the Basic Immobilized Amine Sorbent (BIAS) Process using this sorbent within a system where sorbent continuously flows between the absorber and regenerator was introduced. The basic tenet is to manipulate or control the level of moisture on the sorbent as it travels around the sorbent circulation path between absorption and regeneration stages to minimize its effect on regeneration heat duty.

Experiment and simulation of a LiFePO4 battery pack with a passive thermal management system using composite phase change material and graphite sheets  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract A passive thermal management system (TMS) for LiFePO4 battery modules using phase change material (PCM) as the heat dissipation source to control battery temperature rise is developed. Expanded graphite matrix and graphite sheets are applied to compensate low thermal conductivity of PCM and improve temperature uniformity of the batteries. Constant current discharge and mixed charge-discharge duties were applied on battery modules with and without PCM on a battery thermal characteristics test platform. Experimental results show that PCM cooling significantly reduces the battery temperature rise during short-time intense use. It is also found that temperature uniformity across the module deteriorates with the increasing of both discharge time and current rates. The maximum temperature differences at the end of 1C and 2C-rate discharges are both less than 5C, indicating a good performance in battery thermal uniformity of the passive TMS. Experiments on warm-keeping performance show that the passive TMS can effectively keep the battery within its optimum operating temperature for a long time during cold weather uses. A three dimensional numerical model of the battery pack with the passive TMS was conducted using ANSYS Fluent. Temperature profiles with respect to discharging time reveal that simulation shows good agreement with experiment at 1C-discharge rate.

Theoretical models for Type I and Type II supernova  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Recent theoretical progress in understanding the origin and nature of Type I and Type II supernovae is discussed. New Type II presupernova models characterized by a variety of iron core masses at the time of collapse are presented and the sensitivity to the reaction rate /sup 12/C(..cap alpha..,..gamma..)/sup 16/O explained. Stars heavier than about 20 M/sub solar/ must explode by a ''delayed'' mechanism not directly related to the hydrodynamical core bounce and a subset is likely to leave black hole remnants. The isotopic nucleosynthesis expected from these massive stellar explosions is in striking agreement with the sun. Type I supernovae result when an accreting white dwarf undergoes a thermonuclear explosion. The critical role of the velocity of the deflagration front in determining the light curve, spectrum, and, especially, isotopic nucleosynthesis in these models is explored. 76 refs., 8 figs.

P-type gallium nitride  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Several methods have been found to make p-type gallium nitride. P-type gallium nitride has long been sought for electronic devices. N-type gallium nitride is readily available. Discovery of p-type gallium nitride and the methods for making it will enable its use in ultraviolet and blue light-emitting diodes and lasers. pGaN will further enable blue photocathode elements to be made. Molecular beam epitaxy on substrates held at the proper temperatures, assisted by a nitrogen beam of the proper energy produced several types of p-type GaN with hole concentrations of about 5{times}10{sup 11} /cm{sup 3} and hole mobilities of about 500 cm{sup 2} /V-sec, measured at 250 K. P-type GaN can be formed of unintentionally-doped material or can be doped with magnesium by diffusion, ion implantation, or co-evaporation. When applicable, the nitrogen can be substituted with other group III elements such as Al. 9 figs.

In silico prediction of atomic static electric-dipole polarizabilities of the early tetravalent actinide ions: Th4+(5f0), Pa4+(5f1), and U4+(5f2)  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The dipole polarizability tensor components of the tetravalent actinide ions Th4+, Pa4+, and U4+ are computed using the numerical finite-field technique. Four-component correlated calculations have been performed to serve as a reference for establishing the accuracy of two- and one-component relativistic methods. A good agreement within all methods is achieved provided that extended basis sets are used to reach the complete basis set limit. The four-component correlated polarizabilities represent a database of reference values of the dipole polarizability for the early tetravalent actinide ions.

Description of Building Types Description of Building Types Description of CBECS Building Types In the Commercial Buildings Energy Consumption Survey (CBECS), buildings are classified according to principal activity, which is the primary business, commerce, or function carried on within each building. Buildings used for more than one of the activities described below are assigned to the activity occupying the most floorspace at the time of the interview. Thus, a building assigned to a particular principal activity category may be used for other activities in a portion of its space or at some time during the year. In the 1999 CBECS, respondents were asked to place their building into a sub-category that was a more specific activity than has been collected in prior surveys. This was done to ensure the quality of the data; after data collection, the subcategories were combined into these more general building categories, which are consistent with prior CBECS surveys.

Segmentation of the Outer Contact on P-Type Coaxial Germanium Detectors  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Germanium detector arrays are needed for low-level counting facilities. The practical applications of such user facilities include characterization of low-level radioactive samples. In addition, the same detector arrays can also perform important fundamental physics measurements including the search for rare events like neutrino-less double-beta decay. Coaxial germanium detectors having segmented outer contacts will provide the next level of sensitivity improvement in low background measurements. The segmented outer detector contact allows performance of advanced pulse shape analysis measurements that provide additional background reduction. Currently, n-type (reverse electrode) germanium coaxial detectors are used whenever a segmented coaxial detector is needed because the outer boron (electron barrier) contact is thin and can be segmented. Coaxial detectors fabricated from p-type germanium cost less, have better resolution, and are larger than n-type coaxial detectors. However, it is difficult to reliably segment p-type coaxial detectors because thick (~1 mm) lithium-diffused (hole barrier) contacts are the standard outside contact for p-type coaxial detectors. During this Phase 1 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) we have researched the possibility of using amorphous germanium contacts as a thin outer contact of p-type coaxial detectors that can be segmented. We have developed amorphous germanium contacts that provide a very high hole barrier on small planar detectors. These easily segmented amorphous germanium contacts have been demonstrated to withstand several thousand volts/cm electric fields with no measurable leakage current (<1 pA) from charge injection over the hole barrier. We have also demonstrated that the contact can be sputter deposited around and over the curved outside surface of a small p-type coaxial detector. The amorphous contact has shown good rectification properties on the outside of a small p-type coaxial detector. These encouraging results are the first fundamental steps toward demonstrating the viability of the amorphous germanium contacts for much larger segmented p-type coaxial detectors. Large segmented p-type coaxial detectors based on this technology could serve as the gamma-ray spectrometers on instruments such as the Radionuclide Aerosol Sampler/Analyzer (RASA). These detectors will provide a more sensitive, lower background measurement than currently available unsegmented p-type coaxial detectors.

Type-1.5 Superconductivity  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We demonstrate the existence of a novel superconducting state in high quality two-component MgB2 single crystalline superconductors where a unique combination of both type-1 (?1/?11/2) superconductor conditions is realized for the two components of the order parameter. This condition leads to a vortex-vortex interaction attractive at long distances and repulsive at short distances, which stabilizes unconventional stripe- and gossamerlike vortex patterns that we have visualized in this type-1.5 superconductor using Bitter decoration and also reproduced in numerical simulations.

Models for Type I supernovae  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Two rather disjoint scenarios for Type I supernovae are presented. One is based upon mass accretion by a white dwarf in a binary system. The second involves a star having some 8 to 10 times the mass of the sun which may or may not be a solitary star. Despite the apparent dissimilarities in the models it may be that each occurs to some extent in nature for they both share the possibility of producing substantial quantities of /sup 56/Ni and explosions in stars devoid of hydrogen envelopes. These are believed to be two properties that must be shared by any viable Type I model.

Underwater noise from three types of offshore wind turbines: Estimation of impact zones for harbor porpoises and harbor seals  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Underwater noise was recorded from three different types of wind turbines in Denmark and Sweden (Middelgrunden Vindeby and Bockstigen-Valar) during normal operation. Wind turbinenoise was only measurable above ambient noise at frequencies below 500 Hz. Total sound pressure level was in the range 109127 dB re 1 ? ? Pa rms measured at distances between 14 and 20 m from the foundations. The 1/3-octave noise levels were compared with audiograms of harbor seals and harbor porpoises. Maximum 1/3-octave levels were in the range 106126 dB re 1 ? ? Pa rms. Maximum range of audibility was estimated under two extreme assumptions on transmission loss (3 and 9 dB per doubling of distance respectively). Audibility was low for harbor porpoises extending 2070 m from the foundation whereas audibility for harbor seals ranged from less than 100 m to several kilometers. Behavioral reactions of porpoises to the noise appear unlikely except if they are very close to the foundations. However behavioral reactions from seals cannot be excluded up to distances of a few hundred meters. It is unlikely that the noise reaches dangerous levels at any distance from the turbines and the noise is considered incapable of masking acoustic communication by seals and porpoises.

Development of Production-Intent Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle Using Advanced Lithium-Ion Battery Packs with Deployment to a Demonstration Fleet  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The primary goal of this project was to speed the development of one of the first commercially available, OEM-produced plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV). The performance of the PHEV was expected to double the fuel economy of the conventional hybrid version. This vehicle program incorporated a number of advanced technologies, including advanced lithium-ion battery packs and an E85-capable flex-fuel engine. The project developed, fully integrated, and validated plug-in specific systems and controls by using GMs Global Vehicle Development Process (GVDP) for production vehicles. Engineering Development related activities included the build of mule vehicles and integration vehicles for Phases I & II of the project. Performance data for these vehicles was shared with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The deployment of many of these vehicles was restricted to internal use at GM sites or restricted to assigned GM drivers. Phase III of the project captured the first half or Alpha phase of the Engineering tasks for the development of a new thermal management design for a second generation battery module. The project spanned five years. It included six on-site technical reviews with representatives from the DOE. One unique aspect of the GM/DOE collaborative project was the involvement of the DOE throughout the OEM vehicle development process. The DOE gained an understanding of how an OEM develops vehicle efficiency and FE performance, while balancing many other vehicle performance attributes to provide customers well balanced and fuel efficient vehicles that are exciting to drive. Many vehicle content and performance trade-offs were encountered throughout the vehicle development process to achieve product cost and performance targets for both the OEM and end customer. The project team completed two sets of PHEV development vehicles with fully integrated PHEV systems. Over 50 development vehicles were built and operated for over 180,000 development miles. The team also completed four GM engineering development Buy-Off rides/milestones. The project included numerous engineering vehicle and systems development trips including extreme hot, cold and altitude exposure. The final fuel economy performance demonstrated met the objectives of the PHEV collaborative GM/DOE project. Charge depletion fuel economy of twice that of the non-PHEV model was demonstrated. The project team also designed, developed and tested a high voltage battery module concept that appears to be feasible from a manufacturability, cost and performance standpoint. The project provided important product development and knowledge as well as technological learnings and advancements that include multiple U.S. patent applications.

Type I background fields in terms of type IIB ones  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We choose such boundary conditions for open IIB superstring theory which preserve N=1 SUSY. The explicite solution of the boundary conditions yields effective theory which is symmetric under world-sheet parity transformation $\\Omega:\\sigma\\to-\\sigma$. We recognize effective theory as closed type I superstring theory. Its background fields,beside known $\\Omega$ even fields of the initial IIB theory, contain improvements quadratic in $\\Omega$ odd ones.

Complete genome sequence of the filamentous gliding predatory bacterium Herpetosiphon aurantiacus type strain (114-95T)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Herpetosiphon aurantiacus Holt and Lewin 1968 is the type species of the genus Herpetosiphon, which in turn is the type genus of the family Herpetosiphonaceae, type family of the order Herpe- tosiphonales in the phylum Chloroflexi. H. aurantiacus cells are organized in filaments which can rapidly glide. The species is of interest not only because of its rather isolated position in the tree of life, but also because Herpetosiphon ssp. were identified as predators capable of facultative pre- dation by a wolf pack strategy and of degrading the prey organisms by excreted hydrolytic en- zymes. The genome of H. aurantiacus strain 114-95T is the first completely sequenced genome of a member of the family Herpetosiphonaceae. The 6,346,587 bp long chromosome and the two 339,639 bp and 99,204 bp long plasmids with a total of 5,577 protein-coding and 77 RNA genes was sequenced as part of the DOE Joint Genome Institute Program DOEM 2005.
