  • In order to support existing and future applications, Argonne is installing a Laboratory-wide fiber optic cable plant. It has been designed to support an integrated data/video service consisting of a Laboratory-wide FDDI network and video teleconferencing system and has the capacity for future gigabit per second networks. This paper describes Argonne applications expected to push existing network capacity, our current network configuration, networking research activities, and future networking plans. 1 ref., 10 figs.
  • The Tulsa U. Fluid Flow Projects (TUFFP) is an industry/university research consortium established in 1973 to investigate multiphase flow in pipes for the petroleum industry. Currently, TUFFP maintains three types of computing power: HP/Apollo UNIX-based workstations, Apple Macintoshes, and AT-class IBM PC's and compatibles. The PC's, and more recently the Macintoshes, are used for data acquisition in experimental research facilities. The data are then transferred to HP/Apollo workstations for analysis and future simulation. The results from the workstation analysis are then ported to the Macintosh system for further graphical analysis in the form of plots and for report generation. Thismore » paper describes the current TUFFP computer network is a state-of-the-art and user-friendly system. Users require no prior knowledge of networking protocol and can transfer files among many computers in the network. Researchers can then concentrate on their research without checking hardware connections and learning software communication commands. Moreover, the new network can accommodate growth and change as new needs are introduced and the user population increases.« less
  • The utility industry has been in a transition from major constructions in the 1960s and 1970s to a near-mature stage of the 1980 when the focus is shifted toward operations and maintenance of existing plants. This paper reports on the major goals of utilities today are to enhance power production, to increase productivity, and to reduce safety challenges to the plant. Expert system technology can be used in many areas to help achieve these utility goals. In fact, expert system (or knowledge-based) technology has a number of unique capabilities which makes it an important computer resource for the utilities. Thesemore » include programming flexibility, which allows rapid development and modification; inference capabilities, which allow reasoning to be performed in a nonprocedural manner over facts and heuristics; explanation facility, which allows the user to ak how a result was obtained; and, knowledge structured according to human models, which allows easier understanding and verification of the internals of the expert system. Expert system can be used as an aid, a colleague, or an expert for utility users to help achieve the goals set by the electric power utilities.« less
  • For telecommunications systems simultaneously handling data of different security levels, multilevel secure (MLS) operation permits maximum use of resources by automatically providing protection to users with various clearances and needs-to-know. The strategic air command (SAC) is upgrading the primary record data system used to command and control its strategic forces. The upgrade, called the SAC Digital Network (SACDIN), is designed to provide multilevel security to support users and external interfaces, with allowed accesses ranging from unclassified to top secret. SACDIN implements a security kernel based upon the Bell and Lapadula security model. This study presents an overview of the SACDINmore » security architecture and describes the basic message flow across the MLS network. 7 references.« less
  • This book presents the papers given at a conference on array processors and computer networks. Topics considered at the conference included heterogeneous local networks supporting scientific and knowledge processing, dynamic flow control in a computer communication network, broadcast protocols preserving concurrency, distributed systems, algorithms, routing, flow control, and internetworking.
