  • With a theme of 'Benefits, Balance, and Broad Industry Cooperation,' the Gas Research Institute (GRI) 1988 Annual Report includes a message from the chairman and president; financial highlights, report and notes; and lists of the Board of Directors, management, member companies, advisory bodies and 1988 R D contractors. A special report describes GRI-sponsored technologies that entered the marketplace in 1988. Feature stories discuss R D activities in these six broad areas of current high interest: pipeline operations, residential and commercial cooling, natural gas supply, distribution operations, industrial processes and cogeneration, and pollution control.
  • A comprehensive review is given of the study of visible effects produced in alkali halide single crystals by alpha particle bombardment at very low integrated flux. It is shown that the anomalous regions of birefringence resulting from irradiation may be divided into two classes, based on their appearance in the polarizing microscope. X-raydiffraction studies of plastically deformed single crystals of several pure materials were made as a preliminary to a study of the role of lattice defects in kinetic processes in metals. Reformations up to about 10% were employed in specimens of aluminum, lead, sodium chloride, and potassium chloride. Thinmore » (10/sup -6/ cm) films of copper and gold deposited on soft glass and stainless steel substratss were irradiated by gamma rays from a cobalt-60 source. Radiation up to 10/sup 7/ roentgens produced no effect that could be detected by resistivity changes or changes in the x-ray diffraction patterns. A study of the system magnesiumlead-zinc is under way as part of a broad program to deduce general principles of alloy formation and properties from thermodynamic data. Vapor pressure and reversibleelectrode potential methods were selected to measure the thermodynamic properties. Preliminary accomplishments are described. The three interactions of an x-ray photon with two phonons in the beta gold-zinc lattice are discussed. The effect of one of these interactions, that between the photon and both an acoustical phonon and an optical phonon, was previously neglected in the calculations on this alloy. An improved frequency spectrum is presented. A specific heat curve of beta gold-zinc, derived from the frequency spectrum and the energy of a quantummechanical harmonic oscillator, is shown. The autoxidation of bis(3- methylbutyl) adipate was studied at 100 deg C in the presence of copper 2-ethyl hexoate as catalyst. It was found that the initial reaction involves an interaction between the meta and the diester. The alpha -N-carboxy anhydrides of glutamic acid, lysine, and cystine were copolymerized to produce amphoteric polypeptides. Films of these materials exhibit reversible contractile properties expanding in both acidic and alkaline mediums. The preparation of other amino acid derivatives is also described. (auth)« less
  • This report summarizes the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) DIII-D cooperation during FY87. The LLNL participation in DIII-D concentrated on three principal areas: ECH and current-drive physics, divertor and edge physics, and tokamak operations. These topics are dicussed in this report. 27 refs., 11 figs.
  • This subprogram plan describes cooperative work related to the AVR Test Program. This cooperative work is being carried out under the USA/FRG Implementing Agreement for Cooperation in Gas-Cooled Reactor Development. Earlier cooperation in this area was conducted under the Project Work Statement (PWS) for the ORNL/KFA/AVR Cooperative Effort in HTR Physics, Performance and Safety. The purpose of the cooperation is to obtain experimental information from the AVR relevant to the performance and safety of modular gas-cooled reactors, and to compare measured results with predictions of analytical tools. The scope of the cooperation involves examining the behavior of the AVR undermore » various planned test conditions pertinent to modular gas-cooled reactor performance. AVR test data will be utilized to help validate computational methods used in the areas of reactor physics, fission and activation product transport and plant transient response, and to help understand modular gas-cooled reactor safety behavior (e.g., fission product behavior, dust behavior, and thermofluid dynamic behavior).« less
