Puget Sound area electric reliability plan  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Various conservation, load management, and fuel switching programs were considered as ways to reduce or shift system peak load. These programs operate at the end-use level, such as residential water heat. Figure D-1a shows what electricity consumption for water heat looks like on normal and extreme peak days. Load management programs, such as water heat control, are designed to reduce electricity consumption at the time of system peak. On the coldest day in average winter, system load peaks near 8:00 a.m. In a winter with extremely cold weather, electricity consumption increases fr all hours, and the system peak shifts to later in the morning. System load shapes in the Puget Sound area are shown in Figure D-1b for a normal winter peak day (February 2, 1988) and extreme peak day (February 3, 1989). Peak savings from any program are calculated to be the reduction in loads on the entire system at the hour of system peak. Peak savings for all programs are measured at 8:00 a.m. on a normal peak day and 9:00 a.m. on an extreme peak day. On extremely cold day, some water heat load shifts to much later in the morning, with less load available for shedding at the time of system peak. Models of hourly end-use consumption were constructed to simulate the impact of conservation, land management, and fuel switching programs on electricity consumption. Javelin, a time-series simulating package for personal computers, was chosen for the hourly analysis. Both a base case and a program case were simulated. 15 figs., 7 tabs.

Puget Sound area electric reliability plan. Draft environmental impact statement  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The Puget Sound Area Electric Reliability Plan Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) identifies the alternatives for solving a power system problem in the Puget Sound area. This Plan is undertaken by Bonneville Power Administration (BPA), Puget Sound Power & Light, Seattle City Light, Snohomish Public Utility District No. 1 (PUD), and Tacoma Public Utilities. The Plan consists of potential actions in Puget Sound and other areas in the State of Washington. A specific need exists in the Puget Sound area for balance between east-west transmission capacity and the increasing demand to import power generated east of the Cascades. At certain times of the year, there is more demand for power than the electric system can supply in the Puget Sound area. This high demand, called peak demand, occurs during the winter months when unusually cold weather increases electricity use for heating. The existing power system can supply enough power if no emergencies occur. However, during emergencies, the system will not operate properly. As demand grows, the system becomes more strained. To meet demand, the rate of growth of demand must be reduced or the ability to serve the demand must be increased, or both. The plan to balance Puget Sound`s power demand and supply has these purposes: The plan should define a set of actions that would accommodate ten years of load growth (1994--2003). Federal and State environmental quality requirements should be met. The plan should be consistent with the plans of the Northwest Power Planning Council. The plan should serve as a consensus guideline for coordinated utility action. The plan should be flexible to accommodate uncertainties and differing utility needs. The plan should balance environmental impacts and economic costs. The plan should provide electric system reliability consistent with customer expectations. 29 figs., 24 tabs.

The information and data contained in this Appendix was extracted from numerous sources. The principle sources used for technical data were Bonneville Power Administration's 1990 Resource Program along with its technical appendix, and Chapter 8 of the Draft 1991 Northwest Conservation and Electric Power Plan. All cost data is reported 1988 dollars unless otherwise noted. This information was supplemented by other data developed by Puget Sound utilities who participated on the Local Generation Team. Identifying generating resources available to the Puget Sound area involved a five step process: (1) listing all possible resources that might contribute power to the Puget Sound area, (2) characterizing the technology/resource status, cost and operating characteristics of these resources, (3) identifying exclusion criteria based on the needs of the overall Puget Sound Electric Reliability Plan study, (4) applying these criteria to the list of resources, and (5) summarizing of the costs and characteristics of the final list of resources. 15 refs., 20 tabs.

Puget Sound Area Electric Reliability Plan : Appendix E, Transmission Reinforcement Analysis.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this appendix to the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) report is to provide an update of the latest study work done on transmission system options for the Puget Sound Area Electric Reliability Plan. Also included in the attachments to the EIS are 2 reports analyzing the voltage stability of the Puget Sound transmission system and a review by Power Technologies, Inc. of the BPA voltage stability analysis and reactive options. Five transmission line options and several reactive options are presently being considered as possible solutions to the PSAFRP by the Transmission Team. The first two line options would be built on new rights-of way adjacent (as much as possible) to existing corridors. The reactive options would optimize the existing transmission system capability by adding new stations for series capacitors and/or switchgear. The other three line options are rebuilds or upgrades of existing cross mountain transmission lines. These options are listed below and include a preliminary assessment of the additional transmission system reinforcement required to integrate the new facilities into the existing transmission system. Plans were designed to provide at least 500 MVAR reactive margin.

Puget Sound Area Electric Reliability Plan. Appendix E: Transmission Reinforcement Analysis : Draft Environmental Impact Statement.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Five transmission line options and several reactive (voltage support) options are presently being considered as possible solutions to the PSAERP by the Transmission Team. The first two line options would be built on new rights-of way adjacent (as much as possible) to existing corridors. The reactive options would optimize the existing transmission system capability by adding new stations for series capacitors and/or switchgear. The other three line options are rebuilds or upgrades of existing cross mountain transmission lines. These options are listed below and include a preliminary assessment of the additional transmission system reinforcement required to integrate the new facilities into the existing transmission system. These options were derived from earlier study work that was summarized in Puget Sound Reinforcement Transmission Options'' and New Cross Mountain Transmission Line Alternative: The Crosstie'', which are attached. The initial Transmission Options study report recognized the value to system performance of adding an entirely new circuit rather than rebuilding an existing one. However, siting realities require that rebuild options be considered. Typically, the most attractive rebuild options would be the lowest capacity (lowest voltage) circuits. But because of corridor location, length and terminal proximity, the rebuild options listed below appear to be the most promising. Schematic diagrams and QV Curves of each option are also attached. It should be noted that Snoqualmie and Echo Lake refer to the same station east of Puget Sound and Naneum and Kittitas refer to the same station in the Ellensburg area. 100 figs., 20 tabs.

Various conservation, load management, and fuel switching programs were considered as ways to reduce or shift system peak load. These programs operate at the end-use level, such as residential water heat. Figure D-1a shows what electricity consumption for water heat looks like on normal and extreme peak days. Load management programs, such as water heat control, are designed to reduce electricity consumption at the time of system peak. On the coldest day in average winter, system load peaks near 8:00 a.m. In a winter with extremely cold weather, electricity consumption increases fr all hours, and the system peak shifts to later in the morning. System load shapes in the Puget Sound area are shown in Figure D-1b for a normal winter peak day (February 2, 1988) and extreme peak day (February 3, 1989). Peak savings from any program are calculated to be the reduction in loads on the entire system at the hour of system peak. Peak savings for all programs are measured at 8:00 a.m. on a normal peak day and 9:00 a.m. on an extreme peak day.

Puget Sound Area Electric Reliability Plan. Appendix C : Economic and Technical Evaluation.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In this Appendix, the study framework and evaluation for economic and technical factors are explained. This material documents the analysis performed for Section 4.8 of the EIS. Coupled with the environmental analysis, the evaluation factors described below will be used to judge the relative merits of our four alternatives: alternative strategies: 1 - transmission line, 2 - voltage support, 3 - demand reduction, 4 - combustion turbines. The evaluation factors include measures of economic impacts, risk, and social responsibility. For simplicity, this study assumes that the Puget Sound area is served by a single utility. Therefore, no distinction is made between private and public utilities or load served by BPA and load served by utility-owned generation. In addition, where appropriate, costs incurred by consumers are included as well as utility costs. This study has two relevant time periods. First is the decision period, which extends from 1994 through 2003. It is during these ten years that utilities must take actions to meet peak loads in each year. The analysis continues beyond 2003 through 2010 in order to adequately capture the costs and benefits of actions taken through 2003. This longer study is period is needed because not all costs and benefits occur equally in all years. 18 tabs.

Puget Sound Area Electric Reliability Plan : Scoping Summary Report - Part B Preliminary Technical Analysis Appendix A.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This report describes in general terms the nature of the voltage instability problem facing the Puget Sound area. The following two chapters cover the technical aspects of the problem. It deals with load growth, the root cause of the problem. Also addressed is the capacity of the current power system and the criteria for future system planning. It also explains the technical results of transmission system modeling which confirm the system's vulnerability to voltage instability, the principal symptom of the problem. The results of the scoping process in each of the four measure categories are presented. Included are lists of all options identified, a discussion of the screening criteria, and descriptions of the measures that survived the screening process and are proposed for further evaluation in Phase 2. We discuss the evaluation methodology which will be used to refine the analyses. The next steps in the planning process are outlined. It also describes the short term operational agreements that will assure continued reliable service until a long term solution is in place. 8 figs., 22 tabs.

Tunneling magnetoresistance tuned by a vertical electric field in an AA-stacked graphene bilayer with double magnetic barriers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We investigate the effect of a vertical electric field on the electron tunneling and magnetoresistance in an AA-stacked graphene bilayer modulated by the double magnetic barriers with parallel or antiparallel configuration. The results show that the electronic transmission properties in the system are sensitive to the magnetic-barrier configuration and the bias voltage between the graphene layers. In particular, it is found that for the antiparallel configuration, within the low energy region, the blocking effect is more obvious compared with the case for the parallel configuration, and even there may exist a transmission spectrum gap which can be arbitrarily tuned by the field-induced interlayer bias voltage. We also demonstrate that the significant discrepancy between the conductance for both parallel and antiparallel configurations would result in a giant tunneling magnetoresistance ratio, and further the maximal magnetoresistance ratio can be strongly modified by the interlayer bias voltage. This leads to the possible realization of high-quality magnetic sensors controlled by a vertical electric field in the AA-stacked graphene bilayer.

Dynamics of the electric current in an ideal electron gas: a sound mode inside the quasi-particles  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We study the equation of motion for the Noether current in an electron gas within the framework of the Schwinger-Keldysh Closed-Time-Path formalism. The equation is shown to be highly non-linear and irreversible even for a non-interacting, ideal gas of electrons at non-zero density. We truncate the linearised equation of motion, written as the Laurent series in Fourier space, so that the resulting expressions are local in time, both at zero and at small finite temperatures. Furthermore, we show that the one-loop Coulomb interactions only alter the physical picture quantitatively, while preserving the characteristics of the dynamics that the electric current exhibits in the absence of interactions. As a result of the composite nature of the Noether current, composite sound waves are found to be the dominant IR collective excitations at length scales between the inverse Fermi momentum and the mean free path that would exist in an interacting electron gas.

Fluid flow in the resurgent dome of Long Valley Caldera: implications from thermal data and deep electrical sounding  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Temperatures of 100C are measured at 3 km depth in a well located on the resurgent dome in the center of Long Valley Caldera, California, despite an assumed >800C magma chamber at 68 km depth. Local downflow of cold meteoric water as a process for cooling the resurgent dome is ruled out by a Peclt-number analysis of temperature logs. These analyses reveal zones with fluid circulation at the upper and lower boundaries of the Bishop Tuff, and an upflow zone in the metasedimentary rocks. Vertical Darcy velocities range from 10 to 70 cm a?1. A 21-km-long geoelectrical profile across the caldera provides resistivity values to the order of 100 to >103 ?m down to a depth of 6 km, as well as variations of self-potential. Interpretation of the electrical data with respect to hydrothermal fluid movement confirms that there is no downflow beneath the resurgent dome. To explain the unexpectedly low temperatures in the resurgent dome, we challenge the common view that the caldera as a whole is a regime of high temperatures and the resurgent dome is a local cold anomaly. Instead, we suggest that the caldera was cooled to normal thermal conditions by vigorous hydrothermal activity in the past, and that a present-day hot water flow system is responsible for local hot anomalies, such as Hot Creek and the area of the Casa Diablo geothermal power plant. The source of hot water has been associated with recent shallow intrusions into the West Moat. The focus of planning for future power plants should be to locate this present-day flow system instead of relying on heat from the old magma chamber.

A vertical axis wind turbine is described. The wind turbine can include a top ring, a middle ring and a lower ring, wherein a plurality of vertical airfoils are disposed between the rings. For example, three vertical airfoils can be attached between the upper ring and the middle ring. In addition, three more vertical airfoils can be attached between the lower ring and the middle ring. When wind contacts the vertically arranged airfoils the rings begin to spin. By connecting the rings to a center pole which spins an alternator, electricity can be generated from wind.

Hence a spherical collapsing phenomenon can be approximately achieved when a shock wave propagates into the opening of this finite size artificial cavity. Through the shock and shock interference mechanism a strong impulse therefore is generated at the focal point caused by the pressure difference between the inside and outside of the cavity. This highly localized impulse then is radiated out from the opening of the cavity as a sound projector. A prototype model of 0.5 l size has been constructed and tested in the laboratory. The preliminary experimental results indicated that this device can reach a peak sound pressure level of 146 dB//20 ?Pa in air and 185 dB//30 ?Pa in water with an ambient pressure of 1 atmosphere (1 bar). The 50% pulse width is about 20 and 30 ?s for air and water respectively. Analysis and application of this type of sound projector will be discussed.

Sound Speed Perturbations Due to Internal Tides  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Internal tides are perhaps the most prevalent and largest amplitude internal gravity waves in the ocean. They are commonly generated by the scattering of surfacetidal energy into internal modes when the surfacetides propagate on to continental shelves. A portion of the internal tidal energy propagates into the deep ocean. One of the effects of internal tides on underwater acoustic propagation is to perturb the temperature and salinity versus depth profiles and thus the sound speed versus depth profile. Starting with temperature and salinity versus depth profiles from near Eleuthera Island the internal tide eigenfunctions as well as the sound speed profile have been computed for a water depth of 4500 m. Assuming a value for the vertical displacement amplitude of a first vertical mode internal tide the perturbed temperature and salinity profiles have been computed. From these perturbed profiles the consequent perturbed sound speed profiles have been computed for cases of maximum up and down internal tide displacement. The first mode internal tide has no vertical displacement at the sea surface and bottom and a maximum near the base of the main thermocline (depth of about 1200 m). Since the SOFAR axis is also near the base of the main thermocline and since the pressureeffects on sound speed are predominant below the SOFAR axis the sound speed perturbation due to the first mode internal tide is greatest at a depth (about 550 m) above the SOFAR axis. An internal tide with a maximum vertical displacement of 10 m produces a maximum sound speed perturbation of 0.7 m/sec.

Sound | Open Energy Information  

Open Energy Info (EERE)

Sound Sound Jump to: navigation, search Improved engineering and appropriate use of setbacks near residents has largely eliminated the problem wind farms had with noise in the 1980s and 1990s. Aerodynamic noise has been reduced by advancing blade design and orienting blades upwind of the turbine tower. A small amount of noise is generated by the mechanical components of the turbine. Modern wind turbines are designed with noise reduction in mind. Sound power levels at the source of a wind turbine are in the range of 90-105 dB(A). Proper setback requirements reduce wind farm sound pressure to background-noise levels. For example, at a distance of 350 meters, the sound pressure level for a wind farm is typically less than 45 dB(A). Rural background sound pressure is typically around 30-45dB(A). Higher wind

Future directions in impulsive sound sources  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

While impulsive acoustic sources have long been used by the geophysical community for underwater exploration sonar applications have been relatively uncommon. Recent work in the area of electric discharge devices has led to both a better understanding of the physics of this class of impulsive soundgenerator and to new devices which may in turn lead to an expanded role for such technology in sonar applicationsin particular the observation that the electric arc commonly associated with sparker sound sources represents a wasteful and unnecessary complication. Proper electrode design and control of the electric discharge can eliminate the arc leaving only a steam bubble and can thereby enhance the low?frequency performance of such a device. Insight into the performance and potential of such devices is in part a result of improved computer modeling capabilities of the nonlinear processes associated with impulsive devices as well as on the use of high?speed data acquisition in interpreting experimental results. This is especially true for determining the effects of interactions in arrays of bubble sources. Beyond the electric discharge sources understanding of the coupling of energy from the bubble to the sound field suggests improvements for chemically driven sound sources as well. An update of work on these impulsive devices and the modeling efforts that support them is presented. The performance of some recently developed devices and the potential for future development will be discussed.

Determination of sound power of coupled machines  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Several procedures are available for the determination of the sound power level of machines in normal environments. Most of these give adequate results for single medium?sized equipment but difficulties arise in extending the concepts to large coupled machines. [Evaluation of Proposed ASME PTC 36 Code for Sound Power Level Determination of Large Steam Turbine Generators S.E. Grabkowski J. MacDonald and T. Van Schaick (General Electric Company) to be presented at Fall 1975 ASME meeting.] Much of the problem is because the direct acoustic field of a component machine may not extend to as much as one foot from its surface due to reverberation from other components. A procedure is suggested in which all acoustic measurements are confined to surfaces near each component machine. Correction is made for the reverberant acoustic field of the entire environment. The correction procedure utilizes reverberation time determinations from impulsive noise tests; and applies a Monte Carlo approach to the problem of correcting for nearfield effects in the evaluation of sound power. An iterative computation is employed. Comparisons with free?field sound power determinations are shown.

Micromachined electrostatic vertical actuator  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A micromachined vertical actuator utilizing a levitational force, such as in electrostatic comb drives, provides vertical actuation that is relatively linear in actuation for control, and can be readily combined with parallel plate capacitive position sensing for position control. The micromachined electrostatic vertical actuator provides accurate movement in the sub-micron to micron ranges which is desirable in the phase modulation instrument, such as optical phase shifting. For example, compact, inexpensive, and position controllable micromirrors utilizing an electrostatic vertical actuator can replace the large, expensive, and difficult-to-maintain piezoelectric actuators. A thirty pound piezoelectric actuator with corner cube reflectors, as utilized in a phase shifting diffraction interferometer can be replaced with a micromirror and a lens. For any very precise and small amplitudes of motion` micromachined electrostatic actuation may be used because it is the most compact in size, with low power consumption and has more straightforward sensing and control options.

Airborne sound propagation over sea during offshore wind farm piling  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Offshore piling for wind farm construction has attracted a lot of attention in recent years due to the extremely high noise emission levels associated with such operations. While underwater noise levels were shown to be harmful for the marine biology the propagation of airborne piling noise over sea has not been studied in detail before. In this study detailed numerical calculations have been performed with the Green's Function Parabolic Equation (GFPE) method to estimate noise levels up to a distance of 10?km. Measured noise emission levels during piling of pinpiles for a jacket-foundation wind turbine were assessed and used together with combinations of the sea surface state and idealized vertical sound speed profiles (downwind sound propagation). Effective impedances were found and used to represent non-flat sea surfaces at low-wind sea states 2 3 and 4. Calculations show that scattering by a rough sea surface which decreases sound pressure levels exceeds refractive effects which increase sound pressure levels under downwind conditions. This suggests that the presence of wind even when blowing downwind to potential receivers is beneficial to increase the attenuation of piling sound over the sea. A fully flat sea surface therefore represents a worst-case scenario.

Next we present results of a numerical lattice simulation, examining temporal correlation functions of mesons defined using a point-split interpolating operator, and finding evidence for phononlike behavior characterized by a linear dispersion relation in the long wavelength limit. We argue that our results provide the first evidence for a collective excitation in a lattice simulation.

Pressure dependence of sound attenuation in the Pacific Ocean  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Measurements of the attenuation of sound at a nominal frequency of 75 kHz have been made over vertical and horizontal acoustic paths located between depths of 700 and 3400 m in the Pacific Ocean. Results indicate that the equation used to predict attenuation overestimates the values actually encountered at these frequencies and depths. (Compare calculated values of 27.3 and 22.7 dB/km to measured values of 19.90.5 and 13.30.5 dB/km at depths of 910 and 3350 m respectively.) The measurements definitely establish the decrease of attenuation with increasing pressure. However the magnitude of the pressure coefficient of attenuation is almost twice as large as previously suspected (12.31.110?4/bar or approximately 12.310?4/atm compared to 6.5410?4/atm).

Uncertainty of sound power levels determined following Air Conditioning Heating and Refrigeration Institute Standard 220  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As part of the AHRI ASA-ANSI and ISO standards development processes the uncertainty of sound power measurements needs to be quantified for inclusion in sound power standards. A study of four reverberation rooms with volumes of 140 280 560 and 1790 cubic meters was undertaken. Sound power levels for five noise sources (two vertical shafted sound sources two horizontal shafted sound sources and a leaf blower) were determined using ARI Standard 220. Variables investigated include: source location source orientation room conditions source operating characteristics and microphone traverse length. The frequency range of interest was 25 Hz to 10 kHz. Measurements were repeated and the order of tests was randomized. Of particular interest was the difference between the 140 cubic foot room and the other rooms to confirm the room qualification process required by ARI Standard 220 because the 140 cubic foot room does not meet the ARI Standard 220 qualification process but does meet the requirements in ISO 3741. This work will be helpful in understanding the sources of variation and allow for a starting point for determining if improvements are needed and if so what factors should be considered.

Vertical integration and market power  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

One of the continuing debates of industrial organization surrounds the importance of market structure in determining a firm's performance. This controversy develops naturally from the difficulties in measuring the relevant variables and the hazards of statistical analysis. The focus of this empirical study is the relationship between vertical integration, as an element of market structure, and market power, as a component of a firm's performance. The model presented in this paper differs from previous efforts because vertical integration is measured by the Vertical Industry Connections (VIC) index. VIC is defined as a function of the relative net interactions among the industries in which a firm operates, and is calculated by use of the national input-output tables. A linear regression model is estimated by means of a random sample of firms selected from the Standard and Poor's COMPUSTAT data base for 1963, 1967, and 1972. Combined cross-sectional, time-series methods are employed. The dependent variable is the price-cost margin; the independent variables include not only VIC, but also the concentration ratio, diversification index, value of assets, capital-output ratio, and sales growth. The results indicate that VIC is significant in increasing the price-cost margin, and thus support the hypothesis that vertical integration is a strategy to enhance market power. 1 figure, 3 tables.

The modeling and calculation of sound radiation from facilities with gas flowed pipes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Computer modeling of industrial facilities like chemical plants refineries or other production areas is the first and most important step in the calculation of sound exposure in the environment. The pipework with gas flows is often contributing relevant to the sound radiation of the complete facility. This radiation can be determined applying the methods described in technical papers like VDI 3733 and ISO 15664. On the basis of these descriptions a software tool was developed that allows to create pipework in 3D models with line sources and to calculate the sound propagation with methods like ISO 9613-2. The line sources are linked with the technical parameters like pipe cross section flow rate pressure density and temperature of the gas and material parameters of the pipe wall. The sound power emission from the pipe to the environment and the internal flow of sound powerlinked to the next section of pipingis calculated on the basis of these parameters. The same technique is used to calculate the sound emission of cooling towers electric and fuel driven motors gears pumps and other devices. This powerful technique allows creating sustainable models that can be adapted to different operation conditions with minimum time and effort.

Vertically Integrated Circuits at Fermilab  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The exploration of the vertically integrated circuits, also commonly known as 3D-IC technology, for applications in radiation detection started at Fermilab in 2006. This paper examines the opportunities that vertical integration offers by looking at various 3D designs that have been completed by Fermilab. The emphasis is on opportunities that are presented by through silicon vias (TSV), wafer and circuit thinning and finally fusion bonding techniques to replace conventional bump bonding. Early work by Fermilab has led to an international consortium for the development of 3D-IC circuits for High Energy Physics. The consortium has submitted over 25 different designs for the Fermilab organized MPW run organized for the first time.

Kinematic Fitting of Detached Vertices  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The eg3 experiment at the Jefferson Lab CLAS detector aims to determine the existence of the $\\Xi_{5}$ pentaquarks and investigate the excited $\\Xi$ states. Specifically, the exotic $\\Xi_{5}^{--}$ pentaquark will be sought by first reconstructing the $\\Xi^{-}$ particle through its weak decays, $\\Xi^{-}\\to\\pi^{-}\\Lambda$ and $\\Lambda\\to\\pi^{-}$. A kinematic fitting routine was developed to reconstruct the detached vertices of these decays, where confidence level cuts on the fits are used to remove background events. Prior to fitting these decays, the exclusive reaction $\\gamma D\\rightarrow pp\\pi^{-}$ was studied in order to correct the track measurements and covariance matrices of the charged particles. The $\\Lambda\\rightarrow p\\pi^{-}$ and $\\Xi^{-}\\to\\pi^{-}\\Lambda$ decays were then investigated to demonstrate that the kinematic fitting routine reconstructs the decaying particles and their detached vertices correctly.

Anthropogenic sounds ? Potential effects on fish  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

There is concern that human?generated sounds may have deleterious effects on fish. This paper will review some of what is currently known about these effects and consider the questions that have to be answered before developing models to enable "prediction" of sound effects on particular fish species. A major restriction is that there are few peer?reviewed data on effects of anthropogenic sources on fish. Extrapolation from these results is further confounded since experiments differ in many ways each of which may alter the resultant impact on fish. For example studies vary in sounds types tested (e.g. pile driving vs. ship noise) signal parameters (intensity number of repetitions) species used fish age etc. Moreover a singularly important issue is that while many of the issues and impact mechanisms are potentially amenable to experimental lab study the ultimate questions regarding the effects of sound on fish behavior need to field based and require long?term observations where behaviour of wild fish is not constrained. Only by observing fish in the wild will we ultimately understand if and how anthropogenic sounds impact fish both during exposure and more importantly for extended periods after the termination of the sound.

Acoustic conversion of heat to sound at mid?audio frequencies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A thermoacoustic prime mover was developed for conversion of heat to sound that is then directly converted to electricity. The acoustic device consists of a 2.7?kHz quarter?wave resonator with a stack of random material between a hot heat exchanger and a cold heat exchanger. It is loaded by a cavity that couples the sound to a piezoelectric device for generation of electrical power. Optimization of this device for energy conversion was based on studies of heat injection temperature difference threshold for onset of oscillation heat flow in the device quality factor Q of the resonator response time to heat input and sound power output. Parameters for optimization included different mesh sizes for the heat exchangers given stack filling factors and levels of positive feedback from the acoustic cavity. Response time to heat injection was lowered by coupling the heat source directly to the hot heat exchanger. Device efficiency was doubled by reducing heat losses along the supporting structure of the stack. Temperature differences for oscillation were as low as 50C and sound levels of 130 dB were achieved. Thus device performance was enhanced substantially by optimizing geometric factors.

Torque ripple in a Darrieus, vertical axis wind turbine  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Interaction between a steady wind and a rotating, Darrieus, vertical axis wind turbine produces time periodic aerodynamic loads which cause time dependent torque variations, referred to as torque ripple, to occur in the mechanical link between the turbine and the electrical generator. There is concern for the effect of torque ripple upon fatigue life of drive train components and upon power quality. An analytical solution characterizing the phenomenon of torque ripple has been obtained which is based upon a Fourier expansion of the time dependent features of the problem. Numerical results for torque ripple, some experimental data, determination of acceptable levels and methods of controlling it, are presented and discussed.

Control system for a vertical-axis windmill  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A vertical-axis windmill having a rotating structure is provided with a series of articulated vertical blades whose positions are controlled to maintain a constant RPM for the rotating structure, when wind speed is sufficient. A microprocessor controller is used to process information on wind speed, wind direction and RPM of the rotating structure to develop an electrical signal for establishing blade position. The preferred embodiment of the invention, when connected to a utility grid, is designed to generate 40 kilowatts of power when exposed to a 20 mile per hour wind. The control system for the windmill includes electrical blade actuators that modulate the blades of the rotating structure. Blade modulation controls the blade angle of attack, which in turn controls the RPM of the rotor. In the preferred embodiment, the microprocessor controller provides the operation logic and control functions. A wind speed sensor provides inputs to start or stop the windmill, and a wind direction sensor is used to keep the blade flip region at 90 and 270/sup 0/ to the wind. The control system is designed to maintain constant rotor RPM when wind speed is between 10 and 40 miles per hour.

Classification of heart valve sounds from experiments in an anechoic water tank  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

In vivo studies in both sheep and humans were plagued by a number of problems including movement artifacts, biological noise, low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), chest-wall reverberation, and limited bandwidth recordings as discussed by [1]. To overcome these problems it was decided to record heart valve sounds under controlled conditions deep in an anechoic water tank, free from reverberation noise, including surface reflections. Experiments were conducted in a deep water tank at the Transdec facility in San Diego, which satisfies these requirements. The Transdec measurements are free of reverberations, but not totally free of acoustic and electrical noise. We used a high quality hydrophone together with a wide-band data acquisition system [2]. We recorded sounds from 100 repetitions of the opening-closing cycles on each of 50 different heart valves, including 21 SLS valves and 29 intact valves. The power spectrum of the opening and closing phases of each cycle were calculated and outlier spectra removed as described by Candy [2]. In this report, we discuss the results of our classification of the heart valve sound measurements. The goal of this classification task was to apply the fundamental classification algorithms developed for the clinical data in 1994 and 1996 to the measurements from the anechoic water tank. From the beginning of this project, LLNL's responsibility has been to process and classify the heart valve opening sounds. For this experiment, however, we processed both the opening sounds and closing sounds for comparison purposes. The results of this experiment show that the classifier did not perform well. We believe this is because of low signal-to-noise ratio and excessive variability in signal power from beat-to-beat for a given valve.

Sound radiation measurement with nearfield holography  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

With holography an entire 3D wave field can be reconstructed from data obtained on a single 2D surface. Such high information content has made holography a powerful research tool and useful extensions from its original optical domain to other wave fields such as sound have naturally been pursued. However it has usually been assumed that the resolution of a holographicreconstruction is limited by the wavelength of the radiation; this limitation severely diminishes the usefulness of holography for sound fields when the wavelengths are many times larger than the objects to be imaged. We have developed a new technique called nearfield holography which eliminates the wavelength resolution limit and in addition permits a determination of: (1) the complete sound pressure and particle velocity fields produced by the source; (2) the mode of vibration of the surfaces of the source; (3) the vector intensity field (showing flow of acoustic energy) around the source; (4) the farfield directivity pattern; (5) the total power radiated into a half?space. A particularly interesting application of nearfield holography occurs in the study of sound radiation from musical instruments. [Work supported by ONR.

Quality-Controlled Upper-Air Sounding Dataset for DYNAMO/CINDY/AMIE: Development and Corrections  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The upper-air sounding network for DYNAMO (Dynamics of the Madden-Julian Oscillation or MJO) has provided an unprecedented set of observations for studying the MJO over the Indian Ocean (IO) where coupling of this oscillation with deep convection first occurs. With 72 sounding sites and dropsonde data from 13 aircraft mission, the sonde network covers the tropics from Eastern African to the West Pacific. In total nearly 26,000 sondes were collected from this network during the experiments 6-month extended observing period (from October 2011 to March 2012). Slightly more than half of the sondes, collected from 33 sites, are at high vertical resolution. Rigorous post-field phase processing of the sonde data included several levels of quality checks and a variety of corrections which address a number of issues (e.g., daytime dry bias, baseline surface data errors, ship deck-heating effects, artificial dry spikes in slow ascent sondes). Because of the importance of an accurate description of the moisture field in meeting the scientific goals of the experiments, particular attention is given to humidity correction and its validation. The humidity corrections, though small relative to some previous field campaigns, produced high fidelity moisture analyses in which sonde precipitable water compared well with independent estimates. An assessment of model operational analyses moisture using corrected sonde data shows an overall good agreement with the exception at upper-levels where model moisture and clouds are more abundant than the sounding data would indicate.

Liquid soap film generates electricity  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We have observed that a rotating liquid soap film generates electricity when placed between two non-contact electrodes with a sufficiently large potential difference. In our experiments suspended liquid film (water + soap film) is formed on the surface of a circular frame, which is forced to rotate in the $x-y$ horizontal plane by a motor. This system is located at the center of two capacitor-like vertical plates to apply an external electric voltage difference in the $x-$direction. The produced electric current is collected from the liquid film using two conducting electrodes that are separated in the $y-$direction. We previously reported that a liquid film in an external electric field rotates when an electric current passes through it, naming it the liquid film motor (LFM). In this paper we report a novel technique, in which a similar device can be used as an electric generator, converting the rotating mechanical energy to electrical energy. The liquid film electric generator (LFEG) is in stark contrast to the LFM, both of which could be designed similarly in very small scales like micro scales with different applications. Although the device is comparable to commercial electric motors or electric generators, there is a significant difference in their working principles. Usually in an electric motor or generator the magnetic field causes the driving force, while in a LFM or LFEG the Coulomb force is the driving force. This fact is also interesting from the Bio-science point of view and brings a similarity to bio motors. Here we have investigated the electrical characteristics of such a generator for the first time experimentally and modelled the phenomenon with electroconvection governing equations. A numerical simulation is performed using the local approximation for the charge-potential relation and results are in qualitative agreement with experiments.

Reshaping the electricity supply industry  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Cigre`s Electra magazine published this interview with Alfonso Limbruno, CEO of ENEL S.p.A. To put the interview in perspective, this article begins with a brief overview of ENEL and a biographical sketch of Alfonso Limbruno, and also carries comments from Y. Thomas, secretary general of CIGRE. ENEL is a vertically integrated nationwide electricity company engaged in the generation, transmission, distribution, and sale of electricity, predominantly in Italy. ENEL`s share accounts for approximately 80 percent of Italian electricity demand. Measured by amount of electricity sold, ENEL is the third largest electric utility in the OECD countries and the second largest electric utility in Europe. Measured by revenues, ENEL is one of the largest companies in Italy, with a turnover of Lit. 37,632 billion. In 1995, ENEL served approximately 28.5 million customers and sold 211,607 GWh of electricity. ENEL`s gross installed generating capacity at December 31, 1995 was 55,906 MW. Alfonso Limbruno made all his career in the Italian electricity supply industry (ESI) and has had quite a unique experience: he went through a complete cycle of change of the ESI in his country, the nationalization of the sector in 1962 with the merging in ENEL of over 1,200 undertakings, and now the privatization of the company, along with a far reaching restructuring of the industry. He was appointed CEO of ENEL in August 1992.

Effect of Electric and Magnetic Fields on Spin Dynamics in the Resonant Electric Dipole Moment Experiment  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A buildup of the vertical polarization in the resonant electric dipole moment (EDM) experiment [Y. F. Orlov, W. M. Morse, and Y. K. Semertzidis, Phys. Rev. Lett. 96, 214802 (2006)] is affected by a horizontal electric field in the particle rest frame oscillating at a resonant frequency. This field is defined by the Lorentz transformation of an oscillating longitudinal electric field and a uniform vertical magnetic one. The effect of a longitudinal electric field is significant, while the contribution from a magnetic field caused by forced coherent longitudinal oscillations of particles is dominant. The effect of electric field on the spin dynamics was not taken into account in previous calculations. This effect is considerable and leads to decreasing the EDM effect for the deuteron and increasing it for the proton. The formula for resonance strengths in the EDM experiment has been derived. The spin dynamics has been calculated.

Sound?Power Production in Wind Instruments  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper presents data for output sound powerP O of wind instruments relation to input power P I supplied by the player. P I was calculated as pV? where p equals mouth pressure and V? air flow rate through the instrument. P O was calculated from sound?pressure level and measurements of reverberation time in a live room of known volume. A part of the data was obtained in a room of unknown characteristics; from 15 comparable measurements on 8 different instruments in both the live and the unknown room data were obtained that allowed calculation of P O also from other experiments in the unknown room. Measurements were made on single notes played both pp and ff on each instrument; one low and one high note on the scale of each instrument were chosen. The ratio P O/P I representing the mechanical efficiency of wind instruments as sources of sound power varies from less than 0.001% to about 2%. It appears to increase with increasing P I and in some instruments with frequency. The consistent results obtained for 3 different flutes played by one performer suggest that the variability noted in the other data at least partially reflects individual differences in mechanical efficiency.

Sound insulation ratingsthe STC revisited  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

About twenty years ago building authorities and their acoustical experts were faced with a confusing variety of schemes for rating the sound insulation of walls and floors. There was need for a definitive rating system that would digest the 16 transmission loss values that characterize a partition and produce a single number that would describe its sound insulation performance especially in respect to multi?family dwellings. Two standards committees ISO/TC 43 and ASTM E6 (now E33) began more or less together to develop a new improved rating system to fill this need. The product of these labors was what is known in North America as the ASTM sound transmission class (STC). This rating system was so successful that it was almost universally adoptedeven in applications for which it was not intended. Despite the apparent success there is now increasing awareness of imperfections in the system. These are examined in light of accumulated data and experience to see whether the system could or should be improved by certain minor changes.

Effective speed of sound in phononic crystals  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A new formula for the effective quasistatic speed of sound $c$ in 2D and 3D periodic materials is reported. The approach uses a monodromy-matrix operator to enable direct integration in one of the coordinates and exponentially fast convergence in others. As a result, the solution for $c$ has a more closed form than previous formulas. It significantly improves the efficiency and accuracy of evaluating $c$ for high-contrast composites as demonstrated by a 2D example with extreme behavior.

Sound velocity bound and neutron stars  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

It has been conjectured that the velocity of sound in any medium is smaller than the velocity of light in vacuum divided by $\\sqrt{3}$. Simple arguments support this bound in non-relativistic and/or weakly coupled theories. The bound has been demonstrated in several classes of strongly coupled theories with gravity duals and is saturated only in conformal theories. We point out that the existence of neutron stars with masses around two solar masses combined with the knowledge of the equation of state of hadronic matter at "low" densities is in strong tension with this bound.

Sound Absorption in the Pacific Ocean  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The absorption of sound in the Pacific Ocean at a nominal frequency of 75 kHz was measured over a horizontal path at depths of 910 and 3350 m. The results are 20.01.5 dB/km and 13.51.5 dB/km respectively which may be compared to values of 27.3 dB/km and 22.7 dB/km extrapolated from the empirical relation of Schulkin and Marsh. Evidently the useful range of this relation is severely limited. In addition the effect of pressure may be greater than previously suspected.

Observations of Philippine Sea sound-speed perturbations, and the contributions from internal waves and tides, and spicy thermohaline structure  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In the PhilSea09 pilot study two moorings equipped with temperature (T) conductivity (C) and pressuresensors along with upper ocean ADCP monitored ocean variability for a month in the Spring. The measurements reveal an energetic and nonlinear mixed diurnal-semidiurnal internal tide a diffuse Garrett-Munk (GM) type internal wave field at or above the reference GM energy level and a strong eddy field. One mooring which was equipped with pumped sensors for enhanced salinity (S) resolution was able to accurately quantify T and S variability along isopycnals (spice). The spice contribution to sound-speed fluctuation is observed to be strong near the mixed layer but significantly weaker than the other contributions in the main thermocline. Frequency spectra as well as vertical covariance functions will be presented to quantify the temporal and vertical spatial scales of the observed fluctuations.

Pitch Perception of Complex Sounds: Nonlinearity Revisited  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The ability of the auditory system to perceive the fundamental frequency of a sound even when this frequency is removed from the stimulus is an interesting phenomenon related to the pitch of complex sounds. This capability is known as ``residue'' or ``virtual pitch'' perception and was first reported last century in the pioneering work of Seebeck. It is residue perception that allows one to listen to music with small transistor radios, which in general have a very poor and sometimes negligible response to low frequencies. The first attempt, due to Helmholtz, to explain the residue as a nonlinear effect in the ear considered it to originate from difference combination tones. However, later experiments have shown that the residue does not coincide with a difference combination tone. These results and the fact that dichotically presented signals also elicit residue perception have led to nonlinear theories being gradually abandoned in favour of central processor models. In this paper we use recent results from the theory of nonlinear dynamical systems to show that physical frequencies produced by generic nonlinear oscillators acted upon by two independent periodic excitations can reproduce with great precision most of the experimental data about the residue without resorting to any kind of central processing mechanism.

Pressure Dependence of High?Frequency Sound Attenuation in the Deep Pacific Ocean  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Vertical and horizontal acoustic paths located in the Pacific Ocean between depths of 910 and 3350 m have been utilized to determine the attenuation of sound at a nominal frequency of 75 kHz. Results from these two different geometries show that predicted values exceed the observed magnitudes of acoustic attenuation at this frequency and at these depths. At 3350 m the predicted value is 22.7 dB/km vs a measured value of 13.30.5 dB/km a discrepancy of more than 9 dB. Furthermore increasing pressure reduces the attenuation a fact which supports the work of Fisher [J. Acoust. Soc. Amer. 38 805 (1965)] in contrast to that of Kester and Pytkowicz [Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta 34 1039 (1970)]. However the amount of reduction is larger than previously suspected by more than 80% [This paper represents results of research sponsored by the Office of Naval Research.

Vertical Arc for ILC Low Emittance Transport  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The design and parameters of a vertical arc for the ILC Low Emittance Transport (LET) are reviewed. A 1 TeV CM ILC which relies upon 30 MV/m accelerating cavities with a packing fraction of 65% will require almost 48 km of main linac, which suggests that the total site length including BDS and bunch compressors will be on the order of 53 km. If built in a laser-straight tunnel with the low-energy ends near the surface, and assuming a perfectly spherical ''cue ball'' planetary surface with radius 6370 km, the collider halls will necessarily be 55 meters below grade, as shown in the top plot of Figure 1. Such depths would demand extensive use of deep tunneling, which would potentially drive up the cost and difficulty of ILC construction. An alternate solution is to use discrete vertical arcs at a few locations to allow a ''piecewise straight'' construction in which the depth of the tunnel below grade does not vary by more than a few meters. This approach is shown schematically in the bottom plot of Figure 1. In this Note we consider the issues for a design with one such vertical arc at the 250 GeV/c point (ie, midway down the linac for 1 TeV CM), and a second arc at the entrance to the BDS (ie, the entire BDS lies in one plane, with vertical arcs at each end).

Measurement of sound speed vs. depth in South Pole ice: pressure waves and shear waves  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We have measured the speed of both pressure waves and shear waves as a function of depth between 80 and 500 m depth in South Pole ice with better than 1% precision. The measurements were made using the South Pole Acoustic Test Setup (SPATS), an array of transmitters and sensors deployed in the ice at the South Pole in order to measure the acoustic properties relevant to acoustic detection of astrophysical neutrinos. The transmitters and sensors use piezoceramics operating at {approx}5-25 kHz. Between 200 m and 500 m depth, the measured profile is consistent with zero variation of the sound speed with depth, resulting in zero refraction, for both pressure and shear waves. We also performed a complementary study featuring an explosive signal propagating vertically from 50 to 2250 m depth, from which we determined a value for the pressure wave speed consistent with that determined for shallower depths, higher frequencies, and horizontal propagation with the SPATS sensors. The sound speed profile presented here can be used to achieve good acoustic source position and emission time reconstruction in general, and neutrino direction and energy reconstruction in particular. The reconstructed quantities could also help separate neutrino signals from background.

Observations of sound-speed fluctuations on the New Jersey continental shelf in the summer of 2006  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Environmental sensors moored on the New Jersey continental shelf tracked constant density surfaces (isopycnals) for 35 days in the summer of 2006. Sound-speed fluctuations from internal-wave vertical isopycnal displacements and from temperature/salinity variability along isopycnals (spiciness) are analyzed using frequency spectra and vertical covariance functions. Three varieties of internal waves are studied: Diffuse broadband internal waves (akin to waves fitting the deep water Garrett/Munk spectrum) internal tides and to a lesser extent nonlinear internal waves. These internal-wave contributions are approximately distinct in the frequency domain. It is found that in the main thermocline spicy thermohaline structure dominates the root mean square sound-speed variability with smaller contributions coming from (in order) nonlinear internal waves diffuse internal waves and internal tides. The frequency spectra of internal-wave displacements and of spiciness have similar form likely due to the advection of variable-spiciness water masses by horizontal internal-wave currents although there are technical limitations to the observations at high frequency. In the low-frequency internal-wave band the internal-wave spectrum follows frequency to the ?1.81 power whereas the spice spectrum shows a ?1.73 power. Mode spectra estimated via covariance methods show that the diffuse internal-wave spectrum has a smaller mode bandwidth than Garrett/Munk and that the internal tide has significant energy in modes one through three.

The EIA-111, Quarterly Electricity Imports and Exports Report will replace the OE-781R, Monthly Electricity Imports and Exports Report. The OE-781R has been suspended and will be terminated upon the approval of the EIA-111. The OE-781R administered from July 2010 through May 2011, proved complex and confusing for the repondents. As a result, the EIA-111 was developed to more effectively and efficiently collect more accurate and meaningful data. The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 requires that each Federal agency obtains approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) before undertaking to collect information from ten or more persons, or continuing a collection for which the OMB approval and the OMB control number are about to expire. The approval process, which is popularly known as the "OMB clearance process," is extensive. It requires two Federal Register notices and a detailed application ("supporting statement") to OMB. The first Federal Register Notice was published on August 11, 2011. EIA is prepared to address the comments submitted by each individual.

Wind speed vertical distribution at Mt. Graham  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The characterization of the wind speed vertical distribution V(h) is fundamental for an astronomical site for many different reasons: (1) the wind speed shear contributes to trigger optical turbulence in the whole troposphere, (2) a few of the astroclimatic parameters such as the wavefront coherence time (tau_0) depends directly on V(h), (3) the equivalent velocity V_0, controlling the frequency at which the adaptive optics systems have to run to work properly, depends on the vertical distribution of the wind speed and optical turbulence. Also, a too strong wind speed near the ground can introduce vibrations in the telescope structures. The wind speed at a precise pressure (200 hPa) has frequently been used to retrieve indications concerning the tau_0 and the frequency limits imposed to all instrumentation based on adaptive optics systems, but more recently it has been proved that V_200 (wind speed at 200 hPa) alone is not sufficient to provide exhaustive elements concerning this topic and that the vertical d...

Sound power level measurement of Sheng, a Chinese wind instrument  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Sheng is one of the Chinese traditional wind instruments. But its sound power level has never been carefully measured. In this paper the sound powermeasurements of Sheng were performed for the first time in a reverberation chamber according to ISO standard and Chinese national standard. Two qualified musicians performed on their own instruments in the center of the reverberation chamber. The radiated sound energy and the dynamic ranges of the Sheng were investigated by four channel acoustic measuring equipments. Typical sound power values were obtained through averaging and the results were reported in this paper. It was showed that the mean forte sound power level can reach up to 98dB with a dynamic range of 22.5dB when music scale was performed. The method discussed here is valuable for the sound powermeasurements of other musical instruments. The measurement of the sound power radiated by national musical instruments lays foundations for the investigation into the acoustics of national music halls.

Sound quality descriptors for HVAC equipment from ARI Standards  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) has several standards that provide methods to evaluate the sound quality of heating ventilating and air?conditioning (HVAC) equipment. These include Standard 270 Sound rating of outdoor unitary equipment Standard 350 Sound rating of non?ducted indoor air?conditioning equipment and Standard 1140P Procedures for evaluating sound quality of HVAC equipment. The preferred method in these standards is best described in Standard 1140P which uses one?third octave band sound power levels that are weighted to adjust for the sensitivity to frequency distribution and presence of tones and are then converted to a single number sound quality indicator. The tone adjustment is based on the projection of a given one?third octave band level relative to the average of the adjacent one?third octave bands. An alternate use of Zwicker method B to determine loudness and loudness level is also provided in ARI Standard 1140P. These standards provide a convenient method by which complex sounds for similar products may be compared.

Space?time scales of sound?speed perturbations observed in the Philippine Sea: Contributions from internal waves and tides, eddies, and spicy thermohaline structure.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The Philippine Sea is a dynamic ocean basin with complex multi?scale sound speed structure. Therefore the PhilSea09 and PhilSea10 experiments have put significant resources toward quantifying the space?time scales of this sound speed variability so that the acoustic transmission data can be properly interpreted. In the PhilSea09 pilot study two moorings equipped with temperature (T) conductivity (C) and pressure sensors along with upper ocean ADCP monitored ocean variability for a month in the Spring. The measurements reveal an energetic and nonlinear mixed diurnal?semidiurnal internal tide a diffuse GarrettMunk (GM) type internal wave field at or above the reference GM energy level and a strong eddy field. One mooring which was equipped with pumped sensors for enhanced salinity (S) resolution was able to accurately quantify T and S variability along isopycnals (spice). The spice contribution to sound speed fluctuation is strong near the mixed layer but is significantly weaker than the other contributions in the main thermocline. Frequency spectra as well as vertical covariance functions will be presented to quantify the temporal and vertical spatial scales of the observed fluctuations.

Sound propagation conditions in the equatorial South Pacific Ocean  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A major part of the South Pacific Ocean is impacted by a cold water circulation induced by the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. This results in either a double or a very broad deep sound channel axis [R. N. Denham et al. J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 81 787789 (1987)]. However nearer the equator this impact is reduced and a series of equatorial currents and counter currents come into play. An analysis is made of existing oceanographic data to determine the resulting sound?speed profile shape and sound channel axis depth. A comparison is made to profiles from the temperate regions of the South Pacific Ocean.

Design and implementation of an underwater sound recording device  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this study was to design and build two versions of an underwater sound recording device. The device designed is referred to as the Underwater Sound Recorder (USR), which can be connected to one or two hydrophones or other underwater sound sensors. The URS contains a 26 dB preamplifier and a user selectable gain that permits additional amplification of input to the system from 26 dB to 46 dB. Signals within the frequency range up to 15 kHz may be recorded using the USR. Examples of USR applications are monitoring underwater processes that have the potential to create large pressure waves that could potentially harm fish or other aquatic life, such as underwater explosions or pile driving. Additional applications are recording sound generated by vessels or the vocalizations of some marine mammals, such as the calls from many species of whales.

A method for producing high vertical resolution seismic images from crosswell data is disclosed. In accordance with one aspect of the disclosure, a set of vertically spaced, generally horizontally extending continuous layers and associated nodes are defined within a region between two boreholes. The specific number of nodes is selected such that the value of a particular characteristic of the subterranean region at each of the nodes is one which can be determined from the seismic data. Once values are established at the nodes, values of the particular characteristic are assigned to positions between the node points of each layer based on the values at node within that layer and without regard to the values at node points within any other layer. A seismic map is produced using the node values and the assigned values therebetween. In accordance with another aspect of the disclosure, an approximate model of the region is established using direct arrival traveltime data. Thereafter, the approximate model is adjusted using reflected arrival data. In accordance with still another aspect of the disclosure, correction is provided for well deviation. An associated technique which provides improvements in ray tracing is also disclosed.

Vertical profiles of halocarbons in the stratosphere  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Stratospheric air samples collected between 10 and 35 km altitude by means of a cryogenic sampler were analyzed by gaschromatography. Thus vertical profiles of source gases for halogen radicals were derived, such as CCl4, CCl3F, CCl2F2, CClF3, CF4, C2F3Cl3, C2F4Cl2, C2F5Cl, C2F6, CH3Cl, CH3CCl3, CHF2Cl, CH3Br, CBrF3, and CBrCl2F. Systematic discrepancies between measured and modelled halocarbon profiles point to deficiencies of present one- and two-dimensional models. Measurements of fully halogenated hydrocarbons provide a tool for systematically studying these deficiencies and thus improving the models. 40 references.

Vertical axis wind turbine control strategy  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Early expensive in automatic operation of the Sandia 17-m vertical axis research wind turbine (VAWT) has demonstrated the need for a systematic study of control algorithms. To this end, a computer model has been developed that uses actual wind time series and turbine performance data to calculate the power produced by the Sandia 17-m VAWT operating in automatic control. The model has been used to investigate the influence of starting algorithms on annual energy production. The results indicate that, depending on turbine and local wind characteristics, a bad choice of a control algorithm can significantly reduce overall energy production. The model can be used to select control algorithms and threshold parameters that maximize long-term energy production. An attempt has been made to generalize these results from local site and turbine characteristics to obtain general guidelines for control algorithm design.

Increasing the efficiency of thermoacoustic carbon nanotube sound projectors  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) can generate smooth-spectra sound emission over a wide frequency range (1105Hz) by means of thermoacoustics (TA). However, in the low frequencies f, where the need for large area sound projectors is high, the sound generation efficiency ? of open CNT sheets is low, since ??f2. Together with this problem, the nanoscale thickness of CNT sheets, their high sensitivity to the environment and the high surface temperatures useful for TA sound generation are other drawbacks, which we address here by protective encapsulation of free-standing CNT sheets in inert gases. We provide an extensive experimental study of such closed systems for different thermodynamic regimes and rationalize our observations within a basic theoretical framework. The observed sound pressure levels for encapsulated argon filled TA transducers (130dB in air and 200dB underwater in the near field at 5cm distance, and 100 and 170dB in the far field at 1m distance) are Q times higher than those for open systems, where Q is the resonant quality factor of the thin enclosure plates. Moreover, the sound generation efficiency of the encapsulated system increases toward low frequencies (??1/f2). Another method to increase ? in the low frequency region is by modulation of the applied high frequency carrier current with a low frequency resonant envelope. This approach enables sound generation at the frequency of the applied current without the need for additional energy-consuming biasing. The acoustical and geometrical parameters providing further increases in efficiency and transduction performance for resonant systems are discussed.

Control of light polarization using optically spin-injected vertical external cavity surface emitting lasers  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We fabricated and characterized an optically pumped (100)-oriented InGaAs/GaAsP multiple quantum well Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VECSEL). The structure is designed to allow the integration of a Metal-Tunnel-Junction ferromagnetic spin-injector for future electrical injection. We report here the control at room temperature of the electromagnetic field polarization using optical spin injection in the active medium of the VECSEL. The switching between two highly circular polarization states had been demonstrated using an M-shaped extended cavity in multi-modes lasing. This result witnesses an efficient spin-injection in the active medium of the LASER.

Shift in the longitudinal sound velocity due to sliding charge-density waves  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The nonlinear conductivity observed for moderate electric fields in NbSe3, TaS3, (TaS4)2I, and K0.3MoO3 below the charge-density-wave-transition is believed to be due to the sliding of the charge-density waves. The sliding motion leads to a Doppler shift of the x-ray diffraction peaks, but this effect has not yet been resolved. We show here that besides the Doppler shift, a sliding incommensurate charge-density wave causes a change in the longitudinal sound velocity of the crystal that is linear in the charge-density-wave velocity. The resulting anisotropic shift is estimated in a mean-field approximation and found to be experimentally observable.

Sound Waves in the Atmosphere at Infrasonic Frequencies  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Various geophysical processes generate sound waves in the atmosphere. Some typical sources are auroral discharges in the upper atmosphere tornadoes and severe storms surface waves on the oceans volcanic explosions earthquakes and atmospheric oscillations arising from unstable wind flow at the tropopause. Man?made sources include powerful explosions and the shock waves from vehicles moving at supersonic speeds at altitudes below about 125 km. The components of sound?wave energy at infrasonic frequencies (oscillation periods >1.0 sec) are propagated for large distances (thousands of kilometers) over the earth's surface with very little loss of energy from absorption by viscosity and heat conduction. But the propagation depends strongly on (a) the horizontally stratified temperature structure of the atmosphere (b) the influence of gravity at oscillation periods greater than the atmospheric resonance period ?300 sec and (c) the nonuniform distribution of atmospheric winds. The microphones and electroacoustical apparatus at an infrasonics observation station e.g. the one at Washington D. C. measure (1) the amplitude and waveform of incident sound pressure (2) the direction of local propagation of the wave (3) the horizontal trace velocity and (4) the distribution of sound wave energy at various oscillation frequencies. Researches on propagation require observational data from a network of stations separated geographically by large distances coupled with theoretical analysis of sound propagation to arrive at useful results on the acoustics of the atmosphere.

Transmission of sound through suspended ceilings from HVAC terminal units  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An ASHRAE project to investigate factors determining the sound pressure levels in rooms below ceilings concealing air?terminal units has been completed. Four terminal units installed close to the six ceiling types used were the major noise sources. They were supplemented by two simulators powered by loudspeakers. Sound power was measured for each device in the 156 cubic meter test room in its reverberant condition. The levels in the room were measured for each combination of source and ceiling tile. Sound pressure level was measured as a function of distance from two sources in the room below. The main intent of the project was to validate ARI Standard 885 which provides a calculation method for such situations. Differences among ceiling types were less than expected; leakage around the edges of each panel is a dominant transmission path. Ceiling attenuations at low frequencies were found to depend on the area of the lower face of the units. Sound levels in the room were essentially uniform when the source was above the ceiling. The decay of sound with distance from the sources below the ceiling was found to depend on the inverse of the room reverberation time.

Improving sound propagation modeling for wind power projects  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Sound propagation from wind power projects can be modeled in the same manner as other more common outdoor noisesources but are these models suited to wind turbines' uniquely high source heights operating under high wind conditions and various degrees of terrain ruggedness. In "Propagation Modeling Parameters for Wind Turbines" (K. Kaliski and E. Duncan Proceedings of Institute of Noise ControlEngineers NOISECON 2007) the effects of ground attenuation and various adjustments for wind conditions on sound propagationmodeling were discussed. This paper continues the discussion and explores the accuracy of existing sound propagationmodeling methods for wind power projects including ISO 9613 and other standards. Model data for wind power projects and the implications of various terrain and ground coverage will be discussed.

Sound emission from the gas of molecular superrotors  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We use an optical centrifuge to deposit a controllable amount of rotational energy into dense molecular ensembles. Subsequent rotation-translation energy transfer, mediated by thermal collisions, results in the localized heating of the gas and generates strong sound wave, clearly audible to the unaided ear. For the first time, the amplitude of the sound signal is analyzed as a function of the experimentally measured rotational energy. The proportionality between the two experimental observables confirms that rotational excitation is the main source of the detected sound wave. As virtually all molecules, including the main constituents of the atmosphere, are amenable to laser spinning by the centrifuge, we anticipate this work to stimulate further development in the area of photo-acoustic control and spectroscopy.

Steerable vertical to horizontal energy transducer for mobile robots  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

The present invention provides a steerable vertical to horizontal energy transducer for mobile robots that less complex and requires less power than two degree of freedom tilt mechanisms. The present invention comprises an end effector that, when mounted with a hopping actuator, translates along axis (typically vertical) actuation into combined vertical and horizontal motion. The end effector, or foot, mounts with an end of the actuator that moves toward the support surface (typically a floor or the earth). The foot is shaped so that the first contact with the support surface is off the axis of the actuator. Off-axis contact with the support surface generates an on-axis force (typically resulting in vertical motion) and a moment orthogonal to the axis. The moment initiates a horizontal tumbling motion, and tilts the actuator so that its axis is oriented with a horizontal component and continued actuation generates both vertical and horizontal force.

Wind turbine sound prediction - the consequence of getting it wrong  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The application to permit a wind turbine power development usually involves submission of a prediction for the sound level that will occur at residences schools places of worship and elsewhere people gather for restorative rest. This paper uses the example of a wind power development and follows iterations taken to finalize the sound level prediction. The paper provides quantitative information collected since the start up of the wind power development on measured sound levels and octave band distribution; and qualitative observations on the special characteristics of the sound. Actual observations are compared to the predictions. More importantly the paper reviews the consequences self-reported in qualitative interviews by citizens living with the changed environment after four years of operation of the wind power development. Reported impacts included difficulty sleeping loss of jobs and changes to social relationships caregiving pursuit of hobbies leisure learning and overall health. Changes in measured health outcomes are identified. Both the quantitative and qualitative findings justify revision of the permitting process.

The science of underwater sound: Education, communication, and outreach  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

As a complex scientific topic underwater sound can be challenging for scientists to discuss and effectively communicate with non-science audiences. Educational audiences span formal K-16 classrooms to museum and aquarium visitors. The science of sound is often included in upper middle school physical sciences curricula high school physics classes and undergraduate and graduate university courses which can take advantage of calculus to support student understanding. Communicating with the media presents other challenges: pressing or immediate deadlines; a need to deliver eye-catching flashy pieces that capture reader attention; and a general lack of fundamental knowledge of underwater sound by readers. Scientists must be proactive in their engagement with media to ensure good fundamental science is communicated and to increase useful stories about new developments in underwater sound research. Regulators and other decision-makers are also pressed for time when contemplating a topic yet they need the most up-to-date scientific findings to support their decision-making. This talk will provide an overview of the challenges that ocean acoustic specialists face when trying to communicate the results of their research and meet the needs of diverse audiences. In addition strategies and possible solutions will be discussed.

On the evolution of controllers for sound spatialization  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Dynamic changes in spatialsound attributes have played a role in classical Western music for a long time. It is known that choreographic movements of operasingers were sometimes made for acoustic considerations. Probably the first mechanical spatialsound controller is the so?called wind swell that is found in pipe organs. Already in 1712 Renatus Harris mentions how swelling enables the player to project the sound of the pipes ad libitum to nearby or further distances. With the invention of electroacoustic music a number of electromechanical devices were developed to control spatial aspects of sound (primarily positioning sound sources in 3?D space). Typical examples are Stockhausens rotational table (developed in the 1950s) and Manfred Krauses sound mill (1960). In this presentation the evolutionary steps in the design of spatialsound controllers will be outlinedbeginning with early purely mechanical devices up to recent approaches including the authors participation in the development of a gestural controllable soundsystem based on virtual microphone control (ViMiC).

VERTICAL BEAM SIZE CONTROL IN TLS AND TPS.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Vertical beam size control is an important issue in the light source operations. The horizontal-vertical betatron coupling and vertical dispersion were measured and corrected to small values in the TLS 1.5 GeV storage ring. Estimated beam sizes are compared with the measured values. By employing an effective transverse damping system, the vertical beam blow-up due to transverse coherent instabilities, such as the fast-ion beam instability, was suppressed. As a result, the light source is very stable. In NSRRC we are designing an ultra low emittance 3-GeV storage ring and its designed vertical beam size could be as small as a few microns. The ground and mechanic vibration effects, and coherent instabilities could spoil the expected photon brightness due to blow-up of the vertical beam size if not well taken care of. The contributions of these effects to vertical beam size increase will be evaluated and the counter measures to minimize them will be proposed and reported in this paper.

Quantum Algorithms for Approximating the Effective Resistances in Electrical Networks  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

The theory of electrical network has many applications in algorithm design and analysis. It is an important task to compute the basic quantities about electrical networks, such as electrical flows and effective resistances, as quickly as possible. Classically, to compute these quantities, one basically need to solve a Laplacian linear system, and the best known algorithms take $\\tilde{O}(m)$ time, where $m$ is the number of edges. In this paper, we present two quantum algorithms for approximating the effective resistance between any two vertices in an electrical network. Both of them have time complexity polynomial in $\\log{n}$, $d$, $c$, $1/\\phi$ and $1/\\epsilon$, where $n$ is the number of vertices, $d$ is the maximum degree of the vertices, $c$ is the ratio of the largest to the smallest edge resistance, $\\phi$ is the expansion of the network, and $\\epsilon$ is the relative error. In particular, when $d$ and $c$ are small and $\\phi$ is large, our algorithms run very fast. In contrast, it is unknown whether classical algorithms can solve this case very fast. Furthermore, we prove that the polynomial dependence on the inverse expansion (i.e. $1/\\phi$) is necessary. As a consequence, our algorithms cannot be significantly improved. Finally, as a by-product, our second algorithm also produces a quantum state approximately proportional to the electrical flow between any two vertices, which might be of independent interest. Our algorithms are based on using quantum tools to analyze the algebraic properties of graph-related matrices. While one of them relies on inverting the Laplacian matrix, the other relies on projecting onto the kernel of the weighted incidence matrix. It is hopeful that more quantum algorithms can be developed in similar way.

Velocity of sound in relativistic heavy-ion collisions  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We have studied the rapidity distribution of secondary hadrons produced in nucleus-nucleus collisions at ultrarelativistic energies within the ambit of the Landaus hydrodynamical model. A reasonable description of the data can also be obtained by using the Bjorkens hydrodynamical model if the boost invariance is restricted to a finite rapidity range. The sensitivity of the hadronic spectra on the equation of state vis--vis the velocity of sound has been discussed. The correlation between the velocity of sound and the freeze-out temperature has been indicated. The effects of the nonzero widths of various mesonic and baryonic degrees of freedom up to the mass value ?2.5GeV are seen to be small.

Processing of prosthetic heart valve sounds for classification. Revision 1  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

People with serious heart conditions have had their expected life span extended considerably with the development of the prosthetic heart valve especially with the great strides made in valve design. Even though the designs are extremely reliable, the valves are mechanical and operating continuously over a long period, therefore, structural failures can occur due to fatigue. Measuring heart sounds non-invasively in a noisy environment puts more demands on the signal processing to extract the desired signals from the noise. In this paper the authors discuss acoustical signal processing techniques developed to process noisy heart valve sounds measured by a sensitive, surface contact microphone and used for the eventual classification of the valve.

Sound radiation due to rapid deformation of an impacted plate  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Sound radiation due to forced deformation of an impacted plate was investigated. An initial sound pressure pulse due to rapid local deformation of a plate was generated before the radiation from natural modes of the plate occurred. On the axis of impact near the plate a distinct pressure pulse is observed to reproduce the velocity waveform of the plate at the opposite side of the impact point. Data from experiments involving impact of spheres on plates differing in size and material properties are presented to show the plate behavior and the radiated soundpressure. Theoretical results were obtained from an analytical model in which impulsive acceleration of a plate with Gaussian spatial distribution is convoluted with the acceleration?time history of the actual impact. Theoretical results for the on?axis pressure are compared with the experimental results.

Near-Field Imaging with Sound: An Acoustic STM Model  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The invention of scanning tunneling microscopy(STM) 30 years ago opened up a visual window to the nano-world and sparked off a bunch of new methods for investigating and controlling matter and its transformations at the atomic and molecular level.1 However an adequate theoretical understanding of the method is demanding; STM images can be considered quantum theory condensed into a pictorial representation. A hands-on model is presented for demonstrating the imaging principles in introductory teaching. It uses sound waves and computer visualization to create mappings of acoustic resonators. The macroscopic simile is made possible by quantum-classical analogies between matter and sound waves. Grounding STM in acoustic experience may help to make the underlying quantum concepts such as tunneling less abstract to students.

Generation of Sound Bullets with a Nonlinear Acoustic Lens  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

Acoustic lenses are employed in a variety of applications, from biomedical imaging and surgery, to defense systems, but their performance is limited by their linear operational envelope and complexity. Here we show a dramatic focusing effect and the generation of large amplitude, compact acoustic pulses (sound bullets) in solid and fluid media, enabled by a tunable, highly nonlinear acoustic lens. The lens consists of ordered arrays of granular chains. The amplitude, size and location of the sound bullets can be controlled by varying static pre-compression on the chains. We support our findings with theory, numerical simulations, and corroborate the results experimentally with photoelasticity measurements. Our nonlinear lens makes possible a qualitatively new way of generating high-energy acoustic pulses, enabling, for example, surgical control of acoustic energy.

Observation of a second-sound-like mode in superfluid-filled aerogel  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Superfluid He4 is interesting acoustically because it can support more than one mode of sound propagation, and these can be used to study critical properties. Recently, there has been interest in superfluid-filled aerogels, but for such compressible materials one does not observe the ordinary (fourth) sound; instead there is a mode intermediate between first and fourth sound and a second-sound-like mode. We present a theory for the modes and the first observation of the aerogel second-sound-like mode, which is important because it propagates near the critical temperature.

Experimental study on sound absorbing performance of rubber crumb  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The present paper describes an experimental campaign aimed at the determination of acoustical properties of vulcanized rubber crumbs obtained by the shredding of used tires. In particular their performance as sound absorbing material in lined ducts was investigated. The most innovative aspect that is addressed in the study is the use of a waste material such as rubber tires reduced into small grains as a sound absorbing material: tires are in fact usually used at the end of their life cycle as fuel and burned in cement kilns in order to take advantage of their high heating value with all the problems of pollution that this solution produces. Two kinds of rubber crumbs have been investigated in terms of characteristic dimension of the grains porosity and sound absorbing coefficient while their "in situ" performance when used inside lined and parallel-baffle rectangular ducts has been evaluated measuring their insertion loss. The results of this research show that the acoustical behaviour of the tested rubber crumbs is the typical behaviour of the granular materials showing a noteworthy performance of the tested material in the low frequency range opening a scenery of possible applications where noise has relevant tonal components below 315 Hz.

Low?frequency sound radiation and scattering from bubble clouds.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Recent experimental evidence has shown that when wave breaking occurs low?frequency (LF?200 Hz) sound is produced and LF scatter has a different characteristic than expected from rough sea surface scattering. These effects have been attributed to the bubbles produced during wave breaking which are convected to depth by the breaking turbulence vorticity and Langmuir circulation as observed by Thorpe [S. Thorpe Oceanic White Caps edited by E. Monahan and G. MacNiocaill (Reidel Boston 1986) pp. 5758]. While the radiation and scatteringcharacteristics at frequencies greater than 1 kHz are explained by incoherent scatter from the observed bubble size and space distributions the lower frequency phenomena are not easily explained. However if bubble plumes and clouds produced in the wave breaking have appreciable volume fractions (?10?5) then LF sound radiation and scattering can be explained by classical theories. This paper reviews the scattering and radiation from bubbleclouds in water as a function of volume fraction. When the cloud is compact coherent and collective scatter are shown to occur. The natural frequency of radiation is shown to be described by a modified Minnaert result while the backscatter target strength is described by the first?order volume mode. These analytical results agree with experimental sound radiation and scatter measurements. Finally the collective radiation of bubble plumes and clouds is discussed as a possible explanation of the observed ocean low?frequency scattering and radiation phenomena.

Measurement of sound transmission through mud at Dodge Pond, Connecticut.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Questions important to the sonic detection of buried ordinance are whether the sound dispersion and attenuation of muddy bottoms can be predicted and verified. Wood and Weston [Acustica (1964)] measured compressional speeds in harbor mud 3% less than that of water with attenuation considerably less than those of sandy/silty sediments. A recent theoretical treatment [Pierce and Carey POMA 7001 (2009)] making use of the MallockWood equation and of a card?house theory of the structure of mud estimates the slow sound speed to depend on porosity as 1?(0.35)(1??). Present measurements at frequencies between 1 and 10 kHz with a buried array in the depositional mud at the bottom of Dodge Pond which contains considerable gas microbubbles yield speeds of the order of 60% of the sound speed in water. The initial measurements on the disturbed sediment were found to be strongly influenced by scattering from larger bubbles whereas the results after a period of 10 months showed the effect of a smaller size distribution of bubbles. Estimates based on the Dodge Pondmeasurements and on the card?house theory of the propagation characteristics and of the effect of micro?bubbles are discussed. [Sponsored by SERDP?NSWC?PCD.

Thermoacoustic sound projectors using carbon nanotubes and other nanostructures  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The application of solid-state fabricated carbon nanotube sheets as thermoacoustic (TA) projectors is extended from air to underwater applications. Due to non-resonant sound generation the emission spectrum of nanotube sheets in air or underwater varies smoothly over a wide frequency range 1-105 Hz. Encapsulating the nanotube sheet projectors using inert gases with low heat capacity provided attractive performance at needed low frequencies as well as a realized energy conversion efficiency in air of 0.2% and 1.5% underwater which can be enhanced by further increasing the modulation temperature. We suggest enhancement of sound generation efficiency of encapsulated device by using high quality resonant acoustical windows and modulation of high frequency carrier current with a low frequency resonant envelope. Applications of TA projectors for high power sonar arrays and transparent flexible loudspeakers will be discussed. Finally the alternative nanostructures for excitation of thermoacoustic sound waves will be surveyed. [We gratefully acknowledge support by Office of Naval Research grant N00014-13-1-0180.

A rotating suspended liquid film as an electric generator  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We have observed that a rotating liquid film generates electricity when a large external electric field is applied in the plane of the film. In our experiment suspended liquid film (soap film) is formed on a circular frame positioned horizontally on a rotating motor. This devise is located at the center of two capacitor-like vertical plates to apply external electric field in X-direction.The produced electric energy is piked up by two brushes in Y-direction of the suspended liquid film. We previously reported that a liquid film in an external electric field rotates when an electric current passes through it, naming it the liquid film motor (LFM). In this letter we report that the same system can be used as an electric generator, converting the rotating mechanical energy to an electric energy. The liquid film electric generator (LFEG) is in stark contrast to the LFM, both of which could be designed in very small scales like micro scales applicable in lab on a chip. The device is comparable to commercial DC ele...

Resolution of reservoir scale electrical anisotropy from marine CSEM data  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A combination of 1D and 3D forward and inverse solutions is used to quantify the sensitivity and resolution of conventional controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) data collected using a horizontal electric dipole source to transverse electrical anisotropy located in a deep-water exploration reservoir target. Since strongly anisotropic shale layers have a vertical resistivity that can be comparable to many reservoirs, we examine how CSEM can discriminate confounding shale layers through their characteristically lower horizontal resistivity. Forward modeling demonstrates that the sensitivity to reservoir level anisotropy is very low compared to the sensitivity to isotropic reservoirs, especially when the reservoir is deeper than about 2 km below the seabed. However, for 1D models where the number of inversion parameters can be fixed to be only a few layers, both vertical and horizontal resistivity of the reservoir can be well resolved using a stochastic inversion. We find that the resolution of horizontal resistivity increases as the horizontal resistivity decreases. We show that this effect is explained by the presence of strong horizontal current density in anisotropic layers with low horizontal resistivity. Conversely, when the reservoir has a vertical to horizontal resistivity ratio of about 10 or less, the current density is vertically polarized and hence has little sensitivity to the horizontal resistivity. Resistivity anisotropy estimates from 3D inversion for 3D targets suggest that resolution of reservoir level anisotropy for 3D targets will require good a priori knowledge of the background sediment conductivity and structural boundaries.

Charge transport properties in CdZnTe detectors grown by the vertical Bridgman technique  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Presently, a great amount of effort is being devoted to the development of CdTe and CdZnTe (CZT) detectors for a large variety of applications such as medical, industrial, and space research. We present the spectroscopic properties of some CZT crystals grown by the standard vertical Bridgman method and by the boron oxide encapsulated vertical Bridgman method, which has been recently implemented at IMEM-CNR (Parma, Italy). In this technique, the crystal is grown in an open quartz crucible fully encapsulated by a thin layer of liquid boron oxide. This method prevents contact between the crystal and the crucible, thereby allowing larger single grains with a lower dislocation density to be obtained. Several mono-electrode detectors were realized, with each having two planar gold contacts. The samples are characterized by an active area of about 7 mm x 7 mm and thicknesses ranging from 1 to 2 mm. The charge transport properties of the detectors have been studied by mobility-lifetime ({mu} x {tau}) product measurements, carried out at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (Grenoble, France) in the planar transverse field configuration, where the impinging beam direction is orthogonal to the collecting electric field.

Vertically aligned gas-insulated transmission line having particle traps at the inner conductor  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Gas insulated electrical apparatus having first and second conductors separated by an insulating support within an insulating gas environment, and particle traps disposed along the surface of the high potential conductor for trapping and inactivating foreign particles which may be present within the insulating gas medium. Several embodiments of the invention were developed which are particularly suited for vertically aligned gas insulated transmission lines. The particle traps are grooves or cavities formed into the walls of the tubular inner conductor, without extending into the hollow portion of the conductor. In other embodiments, the traps are appendages or insert flanges extending from the inner conductor, with the insulator supports contacting the appendages instead of the inner conductor.

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

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

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

Electromagnetic soundings over a geothermal reservoir in Dixie Valley, Nevada  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

An electromagnetic (EM) sounding survey was performed over a region encompassing the Dixie Valley geothermal field with the purpose of mapping the subsurface resistivity in the geothermal field and its surroundings. The EM survey consisted of 19 frequency-domain depth soundings made with the EM-60 system using three separate horizontal-loop transmitters, and was designed to explore a narrow region adjacent to the Stillwater Range to a depth of 2 to 3 k. Most sounding curves could be fitted to three-layer resistivity models. The surface layer is moderately conductive (10 to 15 ohm-m), has a maximum thickness of 500 m, and consists mainly of alluvial fan and lake sediments. More conductive zones are associated with hydrothermally altered rocks; a resistivity high may be associated with siliceous hot spring deposits. The conductive second layer (2 to 5 ohm-m) varies in thickness from 400 to 800 m and thickens toward the center of the valley. This layer probably consists of lacustrine sediments saturated with saline waters. Local resistivity lows observed in the second layer may be related to elevated subsurface temperatures. This layer may act as a cap rock for the geothermal system. Resistivities of the third layer are high (50 to 100 ohm-m) except in a narrow 5-km band paralleling the range front. This low-resistivity zone, within volcanic rocks, correlates well in depth and location with reported zones of geothermal fluid production. It also seems to correlate with the western margin of a concealed graben structure previously inferred from other geophysical data.

On Heating of Cluster Cooling Flows by Sound Waves  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We investigate heating of the cool core of a galaxy cluster through the dissipation of sound waves excited by the activities of the central active galactic nucleus (AGN). Using a weak shock theory, we show that this heating mechanism alone cannot reproduce observed temperature and density profiles of a cluster, because the dissipation length of the waves is much smaller than the size of the core and thus the wave energy is not distributed to the whole core. However, we find that if it is combined with thermal conduction from the hot outer layer of the cluster, the wave heating can reproduce the observational results.

Spatial coherence measurement of sound in the northwest Pacific Ocean  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

An experiment on the transverse horizontal spatial coherence of sound propagating in the ocean was performed jointly by Chinese and Russian acousticians in the northwest Pacific Ocean in June 1990. Three hydrophones with spacings of 270 and 130 m were put in the water at a 30?m depth. The acoustic source with four cw (from 109 to 860 Hz) and a broadband pseudorandom noise signal was drifted at a depth of 100 m. Part of the measurement results of up to 140 km are presented in this paper. It seems that the spatial coherence was related to the amplitude of the received signals and rises considerably in convergence zones.

Zero sound modes of dilute Fermi gases with arbitrary spin  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Motivated by the recent success of optical trapping of alkali-metal bosons, we have studied the zero sound modes of dilute Fermi gases with arbitrary spin-f, which are spin-S excitations (0<~S<~2f). The dispersion of the mode (S) depends on a single Landau parameter F(S), which is related to the scattering lengths of the system through a simple formula. Measurement of (even a subset of) these modes in finite magnetic fields will enable one to determine all the interaction parameters of the system.

Strategies for environmentally sound economic development; An input-output analysis  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

This paper reports that it has been estimated that the burning of fossil fuels and the clearing of forests account for 6-7 billion tons of carbon emissions each year. Combustion also results in significant emissions of sulfur oxides and nitrogen oxides. While the growth in the use of fuels has slowed considerably in the developed regions of North America, western Europe, and Japan over the past decade, pressure for increased energy use and the clearing of forests can be expected with even moderate economic and population growth in the developing regions of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. Researchers at the Institute for Economic Analysis have begun the formulation and analysis of alternative scenarios describing environmentally sound economic development over the next 50 years. These scenarios include activities aimed at improving the standards of living in developing countries while reducing emissions of the aforementioned gases or removing carbon from the atmosphere. Specific alternatives include tropical forestation; the adoption of relatively clean and efficient boilers, especially for the production of electricity in developing countries, as well as greater use of cogeneration systems and hydroelectricity; alternative transportation strategies; and conservation of energy in households of rich and middle-income countries (e.g., efficient lighting fixtures, appliances, and cooling equipment).

The sound quality of vehicle interior noise: a challenge for the NVH-engineers  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The sound quality of vehicle interior noise has become a very important task for the acoustic engineers since more than 20 years. As vehicles become more and more quiet, the customer's sensitiveness for the acoustical comfort increases. On the one hand, no disturbing noises should be heard and on the other hand, the perceived sound quality, for example from the powertrain, should fulfill the expectations of the listener with respect to the sound design. The development of a good sound quality is in conflict with other targets. The development time of a new car has to be reduced and the production costs have to be lower, the total weight of the car should not increase ?? without any negative influence on the sound quality. For the acoustical engineer it becomes important to know what kind of tools are available to measure, to analyse and to describe sound quality on the one hand and how to improve it on the other hand.

Underwater and in-air sounds from a small hovercraft  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Underwater and in-air recordings were made from a boat anchored near Prudhoe Bay Alaska while a Griffon 2000TD hovercraft drove by at or near full power on four passes. At the closest point of approach (CPA 6.5 m ) underwater broadband ( 10 10 000 Hz ) levels reached 133 and 131 dB re : 1 ? Pa at depths of 1 and 7 m respectively. In-air unweighted and A-weighted broadband ( 10 10 000 Hz ) levels reached 104 and 97 dB re : 20 ? Pa respectively. The hovercraft produced sound at a wide range of frequencies. Both underwater and in air the largest spectral peak was near 87 Hz which corresponded to the blade rate of the thrust propeller. In addition the spectral composition included several harmonics of this frequency. The shaft or blade rate of the lift fan was barely detectable underwater despite its proximity to the water. The hovercraft was considerably quieter underwater than similar-sized conventional vessels and may be an attractive alternative when there is concern over underwater sounds.

Assessment of HVAC sound power data for sensitive spaces.  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Certification testing of air handling unit sound power (PWL) indicates that individual unit PWL can vary significantly from manufacturer published data. Published data are typically based on a limited number of actual tests with results extrapolated for other fan sizes and operating conditions. Although published data are normally acceptable for routine applications indiscriminate use for sensitive designs (studios theaters conference centers etc.) can result in excessive finished space noise levels. The fact that the design goals have been exceeded can be accurately documented. The exact reason for the exceedance however cannot be as firmly established in a complex system. Certification PWL testing of air handling units prior to installation can detect PWL variations from the published data. Individual unit PWL certification was often not cost effective prior to the developement of sound intensity and the establishment and use of recognized standards for in situ PWL testing (e.g. ASA 104?1992 ANSI S.12.12.1992). Case histories to be presented document fan PWL variations from published data of up to 10 dB and higher in certain octave bands.

Continental seismic events observed by the MPL vertical DIFAR array  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The vertical DIFAR array, an underwater acoustic sensor system, deployed by the Marine Physical Laboratory (MPL) was in place over the continental shelf off of Southern California and recorded the HUNTERS TROPHY nuclear test and nearly a score of after-shocks of the Landers/Big Bear earthquakes. Data from this array raise the possibility that detection thresholds for continental events may be significantly lower for arrays over the continental shelf than for arrays in the deep ocean basins. Offshore stations could be used to fill gaps in land-based seismic networks for monitoring the NPT and a CTBT, especially for monitoring non-cooperating nations with large coastlines. This preliminary report provides an analysis of the HUNTERS TROPHY observation as well as one of the Landers aftershocks. The analysis suggests detection thresholds for vertical hydrophone arrays below mb 3.0 at ranges between 3 and 4 degrees, and below mb 4.4 out to 6 degrees. This report also describes two signal processing techniques that enhance the detection potential of short vertical arrays. These methods are deterministic null steering to suppress horizontally propagating ambient ocean noise, and matched field processing for vertically-incident acoustic fields. The latter technique is ideally suited for acoustic fields derived from incident seismic waves, and may be viewed as a {open_quotes}synthetic aperture{close_quotes} approach to increase the effective aperture of the array.

Air handler sound power prediction method based on ARI Standard 260  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A method of predicting air handler sound power based on ratings for a product line is described. The method provides octave band sound power levels based on ratings obtained using Air?Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) Standard 260 Sound Rating Of Ducted Air Moving And Conditioning Equipment. Detailed sound power information for HVAC equipment is not always available but it is important in accurately predicting noise levels in acoustically sensitive spaces. To address this need a rating program was undertaken using ARI 260. This standard is a reverberant room technique for sound rating ducted air conditioning equipment using a reference sound source substitution method. Since sound travels from the source to receiver along numerous paths this standard differentiates between sound power emanating from several common paths called components. Components for this project included ducted discharge free inlet plus casing ducted inlet and casing. The standard provides guidance on adequate number of fan sizes appurtenances and operating characteristics. The intent of the project was to provide a model to predict sound power by unit size component operating condition and unit configuration. Good agreement was found between predicted levels and measured data.

Thermoacoustic magnetohydrodynamic electrical generator  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

A thermoacoustic magnetohydrodynamic electrical generator includes an intrinsically irreversible thermoacoustic heat engine coupled to a magnetohydrodynamic electrical generator. The heat engine includes an electrically conductive liquid metal as the working fluid and includes two heat exchange and thermoacoustic structure assemblies which drive the liquid in a push-pull arrangement to cause the liquid metal to oscillate at a resonant acoustic frequency on the order of 1,000 Hz. The engine is positioned in the field of a magnet and is oriented such that the liquid metal oscillates in a direction orthogonal to the field of the magnet, whereby an alternating electrical potential is generated in the liquid metal. Low-loss, low-inductance electrical conductors electrically connected to opposite sides of the liquid metal conduct an output signal to a transformer adapted to convert the low-voltage, high-current output signal to a more usable higher voltage, lower current signal.

Dispersal of measured sound power levels for wind turbines  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The standard IEC 61400?11 provides guidance in the measurement analysis and reporting of acoustic emissions(sound power levels) from wind turbine generator systems. The application of this standard aims to provide accurate results that can be replicated by others. We did several measurement operations according to this standard on various wind farms fitted with many turbine manufacturers on different ground types. Important differences have been noticed with equal working conditions between the most and the less noisy wind turbine on a single farm. We will present these results compared to the manufacturers' guaranteed values and initiate explanations (like the difficulties to link the wind speed at 10m above ground with the wind speed received at hub height; or the influence of wind incidence on blades).

The CSULB Mobile Science Museum: Sights and sounds of science  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In 1980 a 27?ft recreational vehicle was adapted to carry interactive science displays to local schools and community groups. This Mobile Science Museum (MSM) exhibits as many as 40 individual hands?on displays both inside as well as on tables directly outside the vehicle. University science students serve as docents and pass on their enthusiasm for science while providing role models for young visitors. Most displays are borrowed from university science teaching and research laboratories while others are developed and fabricated by faculty staff and students. Topics found to be particularly effective for presentation in the hands?on mode include sound light and marine biology. Far more schools request visits by the MSM than can be served within current budgetary constraints. While this project is supported by CSULB School of Natural Sciences the majority of the operating budget comes from other sources of funding including companies specializing in science and technology school districts parent/teacher associations and private individuals.

This line of inquiry aims to provide sound transmission loss data both lab? and field?tested for novel transparent and translucent wall assemblies. Special attention is paid to: (1) Redundant assemblies featuring two layers of material with a large gap or small room between them (2) assemblies featuring emerging materials and (3) assemblies with high thermal resistance values. To that end composite configurations of acrylic polycarbonate aerogel and glass were tested in a laboratory and an acrylic room and glass vestibule were tested in the field. Results will be presented with an eye toward future use of the data. Indeed it was the unavailability of the data in existing publications that initially drove the research.

A rigorous and explicit solution is obtained for the problem of sound radiation from an unflanged circular pipe, assuming axially symmetric excitation. The solution is valid throughout the wave-length range of dominant mode (plane wave) propagation in the pipe. The reflection coefficient for the velocity potential within the pipe and the power-gain function, embodying the characteristics of the radiation pattern, are evaluated numerically. The absorption cross section of the pipe for a plane wave incident from external space, and the gain function for this direction, are found to satisfy a reciprocity relation. In particular, the absorption cross section for normal incidence is just the area of the mouth. At low frequencies of vibration, the velocity potential within the pipe is the same as if the pipe were lengthened by a certain fraction of the radius and the open end behaved as a loop. The exact value of the end correction turns out to be 0.6133.

The Effect of Vertical Upward Flow on Thermal Plumes

The Effect of Vertical Upward Flow on Thermal Plumes The Effect of Vertical Upward Flow on Thermal Plumes Speaker(s): Pierre S. Farrugia Date: November 18, 2010 - 12:05pm Location: 90-3122 Seminar Host/Point of Contact: David Lorenzetti Thermal plumes have been widely investigated in a variety of scenarios, including natural convection and stratified environments. The resulting theory may be used to predict ventilation flow rates in, for example, natural and displacement ventilation, and under-floor air distribution (UFAD) systems. However, there has been little effort in investigating how uniform upward flows affect the plume velocity, rate of growth, and thermal profile. Such situations can arise if, for example, the diffusers of a UFAD system are evenly distributed. In order to study such situations, analytical expressions for the velocity and temperature profiles of a plume
