  • Fuel cell stacks are typically hand-assembled and tested. As a result the manufacturing process is labor-intensive and time-consuming. The fluid leakage in fuel cell stacks may reduce fuel cell performance, damage fuel cell stack, or even cause fire and become a safety hazard. Leak check is a critical step in the fuel cell stack manufacturing. The fuel cell industry is in need of fuel cell leak-test processes and equipment that is automatic, robust, and high throughput. The equipment should reduce fuel cell manufacturing cost.
  • This paper discusses the Department of Defense's (DOD's) concerns about the need to enhance the capabilities of Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves (NPOSR) to meet military needs, foreign and domestic, and suggests topics for further study. It outlines potential features of a Defense Petroleum Reserve (DPR), and raises design issued for further consideration. It provides rough estimates of the time and resources required to develop a DPR, and outlines the major steps involved in developing the Reserve. This paper is intended to serve as the basis for further study of this concept during the next several months, to helpmore » provide the basis for a decision by the President in 1984 regarding the future of the Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves. 3 tabs.« less
  • Charge transfer and charge transport in photoactivated systems are fundamental processes that underlie solar energy capture, solar energy conversion, and photoactivated catalysis, both organometallic and enzymatic. We developed methods, algorithms, and software tools needed for reliable treatment of the underlying physics for charge transfer and charge transport, an undertaking with broad applicability to the goals of the fundamental-interaction component of the Department of Energy Office of Basic Energy Sciences and the exascale initiative of the Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research.
  • The BACnet communication protocol for building automation and control systems is in an advanced state of development and is expected to be released for public review in early 1991. When the review process is completed it will become an ASHRAE standard. One of the important outstanding issues to be resolved is conformance to the standard and how to test devices to determine if they meet the conformance requirements. The report is a draft Abstract Test Suite based on working draft three of the proposed standard. The Abstract Test Suite is a first step in developing the tests which will bemore » used to certify conformance to BACnet. Its purpose is to provide a starting point from which a conformance certification program can be built and to focus discussions on the outstanding conformance issues that need to be resolved before the standard can be considered complete. The role of an abstract test suite in the conformance testing process is described, a proposed BACnet test system architecture is presented and individual test cases are defined. Test cases to determine support for object types and application services defined in working draft three are included. A standard object configuration is also proposed to simplify the testing process.« less
  • The report describes a collection of 100 Fortran loops used to test the effectiveness of an automatic vectorizing compiler. We present the results of compiling these loops using commercially available, vectorizing Fortran compilers on a variety of supercomputers, minisupercomputers, and mainframes. 4 refs., 9 tabs.
