  • In recent years, several major federal energy programs involving salt domes have been initiated. Much data have been accumulated concerning their occurrence, origin, character, and utilization, which has resulted in an enhanced geological and technological understanding of salt domes. This understanding should aid in the planning and development of their use both economically and environmentally. Studies of the use of salt domes for the isolation of high-level nuclear waste were initiated in the early 1970s by the US Geological Survey and were greatly expanded by the US Department of Energy. Another program the Strategic Petroleum Reserve Project, was mandated bymore » Congress in 1975. Its ultimate goal was to establish a reserve of 1 billion bbl of crude oil. Man-made cavities in Gulf Coast salt domes are being used for this purpose. A third effort has been the study of compressed-air energy storage underground. An evaluation of the use of man-made cavities in salt domes for this purpose has been a major focus of that program. Enhancement of scientific knowledge related to salt domes has included such fields as structural geology, petrology, hydrology, rock mechanics, mining methods, failure modes of underground structures, and potential environmental impact of salt-dome utilization.« less
  • The Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) and the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) maintain a well organized system to classify, store and retrieve reports of DOE funded research. However, there is no practicable automated system that fully addresses the storage, maintenance, and retrieval of information contained in the original research data from which the reports were generated. These data are the records that record the conditions and limits of research projects and the data derived from experiments and tests. They include field notebooks, commentary, descriptions of instruments used, project officers reports and observations of the biota and themore » environment. These documents contain significant original research data, much of which cannot be reproduced in a laboratory and some, will never be attempted again. The data are priceless even in their present semi-organized state. However, depending upon the institution having custody, there is considerable danger that many of these records may be lost or deteriorate in time. Then, on increasing occasion, the researcher is often faced with an insurmountable volume of information. The very magnitude of the reports her or she must digest often results in a paucity of information in the midst of plenty. If specific information contained within these records can be preserved and made fully accessible to authorized researchers reflecting upon modern questions, the impact will have scientific, technology transfer, or commercial implications. The data, while priceless, will increase in value and be more likely to be preserved if they can be organized into an information retrievable format. 1 fig.« less
  • This report contains abstracts of 11 papers given at the Tri-State Catalyst Club Symposium held May 23, 1984 at the Marriott Hotel, Lexington, Kentucky. Most of the papers deal with physical measurements on fresh and used catalysts: Auger electron spectroscopy, small angle scattering (x-rays and neutrons), electron microscopy (including electron diffraction and electron microprobe analysis), surface area measurement, chemical preparation, etc. One paper describes an automated BET apparatus for measuring surface area and pore size distribution. One paper describes the regeneration of spent catalysts used for cracking residual fuels. To limit the heat released in this process, carbon dioxide ismore » used - the Boudouard reaction (endothermic). One paper discusses the selectivity and yield of active catalyst embedded in a less active material in various ways. (LTN)« less

  • Entertainment clubs, nightclubs, theaters, restaurants, and coliseums, with their highly variable occupancy rate, are excellent candidates for demand-controlled ventilation. The dynamic thermal requirements of both heating and cooling, coupled with the need to control indoor air quality because of the large number of patrons who also may be smoking during the highest occupancy, provide an opportunity to integrate the temperature controls with an indoor air quality control system. Significant energy savings may be realized by controlling the ventilation of outdoor air to match the heating, cooling, and humidity requirements as well as maintaining acceptable indoor air quality. This paper describesmore » a demand-controlled ventilation system that was installed in an entertainment club in Boise, Idaho, using a multigas indoor air quality sensor to measure the level of indoor air pollutants, which, when combined with a mixed-air temperature sensor to provide economizer cooling, introduces outdoor air at a rate required to adequately ventilate the space.« less
