  • Transient effects of radiation leading to circuit malfunction are treated in detail. These effects, arising from ions or electron-hole pairs created by penetrating gamma 's or neutrons of energy>1 Mev, produce additional shunt resistors and transient currents. The effect of 8- mu sec gamma pulses on the output of a low-level amplifier is illustrated. The difference between transient and dose effects of radiation is discussed. A tentative procedure for designing radiationresistant systems is given which includes use of lowimpedance designs and testing. The problem of nuclear weapon simulation is considered. The following pieces of equipment are suitable for such simulation:more » a gamma linac operating at an electron energy of 10 Mev, a bare critical assembly such as Godiva, and a 30-Mev linac using the photofission process to produce neutrons.

  • The specification of mutual access to object operations currently depends on the language used for implementation of object-oriented systems. The designer`s semantical workspace for specifying the sharing of operations is determined mainly by language attributes such as {open_quote}public{close_quote}. This dependency forces designers to step down from abstract specification to language features instead of staying at a conceptual layer for design completion. In order to cover as many aspects of privacy as possible, this paper provides an accurate concept for design support based on a classification of implementation-independent access restrictions. Using the frame-work the designer is liberated from particular language featuresmore » when accomplishing his/her task. In this paper the framework is exemplified for subclass-relationships. However, its results can easily be applied to further relationships occurring in object-oriented systems.« less
  • Technology transfer is defined as the application of knowledge to the solution of mankind's problems. What results is a new use for knowledge in a location where that knowledge had not been previously applied for the benefit of the inhabitants. The knowledge need not necessarily be new. The application at the site is new. Technology transfer is essentially dependent on people and far less on agencies, committees, handbooks, and so on. Moreover, the right people are required, i.e., those who are friendly, communicative, receptive to new ideas, and who establish interpersonal relationships easily. These people -- The authors call themmore » Technology Transfer Agents or Champions -- must bring together suitable technologies coinciding with market needs at the appropriate time.« less
  • Title IV of the Clean Air Act not only created a regulatory program unlike any other under the Clean Air Act, but also established a unique position--the designated representative--as an integral part of the program. The designated representative is required to meet certain basic obligations under Title IV, and a panoply of enforcement mechanisms are available to EPA in the event of noncompliance with these obligations. Also, because a designated representative may take on responsibilities under the permit provisions of Title V of the Clean Air Act, the designated representative can also be subject to an enforcement action for failuremore » to comply with certain Title V permit requirements. This paper considers the basic definition of the designated representative under EPA`s Title IV and Title V regulations, identifies the responsibilities assigned to the designated representative, and then analyzes the enforcement mechanisms that may be applied to the designated representative if a regulatory responsibility has not been satisfied.« less
  • The primary source of nuclear data for reactor shielding calculations is the Evaluated Nuclear Data File (ENDF/B). This data file is maintained and distributed by the National Nuclear Data Center (NNDC) of Brookhaven National Laboratory. The file is based on nuclear data evaluations provided by members of the Cross Section Evaluation Working Group (CSEWG). A new version of the ENDF/B file (ENDF/B-V) is now in preparation. The new file will be ready for release in early 1978. There are several new or revised data representations in ENDF/B-V. These include the ability to specify the components of the energy released inmore » fission and the ability to specify energy dependence in the Watt fission spectrum parameters. A revised format was developed for radioactive decay data in which one can give more details about the decay radiations, particularly their energy spectra. The formats for cross section covariance matrix representations were revised, and formats for the resonance region, added. Among the new data which can be entered into the file are cross sections for production of isomeric states in the form of probabilities or absolute cross sections. In order to improve the accuracy and reliability of ENDF/B-V, extensive improvements were made in the checking programs and the review kits. The major materials in the General Purpose file are being revised where new measurements indicate improvements are required. The neutron standards were completely revised for /sup 6/Li, /sup 10/B, and /sup 235/U. A preliminary version of an Actinide File already exists. In support of damage studies, a Gas Production File containing hydrogen and helium production cross sections is being created. An Activation File containing selected reaction and decay data necessary for activation calculations is in preparation. The Fission Product File and Dosimetry File of ENDF/B-IV are being upgraded. 2 figures, 4 tables.« less
