  • The generalized mathematical method for obtaining Margules-type formulations for the excess free energy of solution, G[sup xs], or any other excess molar thermochemical property, and RT 1n ([gamma][sub i]), or the corresponding partial molar quantity in multicomponent solutions, is presented in this paper. For the n-component system, the G[sup xs] function is approximated by a pth-order Taylor series involving (n [minus] 1) independent compositional variables. The expression for G[sup xs] is differentiated with respect to each compositional variable, and the resultant partial derivatives are evaluated at each of the compositional extremes to obtain the Margules parameters (activity coefficients at infinitemore » dilution) replacing the constants in the Taylor series which have no thermodynamic meaning. When p = 2, the solutions are symmetric (strictly regular) and no ternary and higher order interaction parameters exist in ternary and higher order systems. For p = 3, the solutions are asymmetric (subregular) and no quaternary and higher order parameters exist in quaternary and higher order systems. As a special case of the latter system (p = 3) the constituent binaries can exhibit symmetric behavior, but the expressions for G[sup xs] and RT 1n ([gamma][sub i]) can contain ternary interaction parameters. Thus, the existence of nonbinary interaction parameters is a result of the complexity of the Taylor series approximation to the G[sup xs] function. In general, ternary interaction parameters cannot be completely defined by the binary interaction parameters. Simple expressions for the excess function and the activity coefficients in symmetric and asymmetric multicomponent solutions have been derived. Previously published binary, ternary, and quaternary symmetric and asymmetric solution models are discussed and compared to the solution models derived herein. 17 refs., 2 tabs.« less
  • We present a method for computing lower bounds in the progressive hedging algorithm (PHA) for two-stage and multi-stage stochastic mixed-integer programs. Computing lower bounds in the PHA allows one to assess the quality of the solutions generated by the algorithm contemporaneously. The lower bounds can be computed in any iteration of the algorithm by using dual prices that are calculated during execution of the standard PHA. In conclusion, we report computational results on stochastic unit commitment and stochastic server location problem instances, and explore the relationship between key PHA parameters and the quality of the resulting lower bounds.
  • ABS>The process of electrolytic production of W- Co alloys in powdery form from citrate solutions containing Na/sub 2/WO/sub 4/ and CoSO/sub 4 with additives (NH/sub 4/)/sub 2/SO/sub 4/ and Na/sub 2/SO/sub 4/ is examined. E ffects of solution composition and electrolysis conditions on current flow and chemical composition of the powder are studied. Current flow increases with growth of total concentration of tungsten and cobalt salts and with decrease of citric acid in the solution. The chemical composition of the powder is affected most of all by the ratio of tungsten and cobalt salt concentration in the solution. If thismore » ratio is changed the tungsten content in the alloy may be changed from 0 to 20% by mass respectively. 0ptimal conditions of W-- Co powders electric precipitation are determined. X-ray diffraction analysis shows that these powders are the solid solutions of tungsten in hexagonal and cubic cobalt. (auth)« less
  • An active 128-acre industrial site, which has been operating since 1868, located in southern New Jersey was effectively remediated in three months using an accelerated multi-source remedial approach which uses field sample evaluation for site characterization and closure. Through extensive multi-remedial investigations consisting of the collection and laboratory analysis of 849 soil samples, and the installation and subsequent sampling of 60 ground water monitoring wells, 73 areas of environmental concern were identified and subsequently designated for remedial action. An aggressive remedial approach was conducted which consisted of soil excavation, including post-excavation sampling to ensure that compliance with applicable New Jerseymore » soil cleanup criteria was achieved. Waste loading, transportation and proper disposal at a designated facility, and the use of a full service mobile laboratory for post-excavation soil sample characterization was achieved within the project time-frame. The mobile laboratory was an integral component of the remedial approach. It provided volatile organic, base-neutral, total petroleum hydrocarbon, and priority pollutant metals analyses on post-excavation soil samples using approved laboratory methods. Use of the mobile laboratory provided multiparameter sample results for field evaluation within 24 hours of collection, which expedited remediation activities allowing areas to be evaluated and backfilled immediately, as appropriate. This approach allowed rapid restoration of the remediation areas, thereby greatly reducing disruptions in facility operations. Quality Assurance/Quality Control methods consisted of the use of a fixed base laboratory for confirmation sample analysis of 10% of the samples collected.« less
