  • Seismic analysis is of great importance in the evaluation of nuclear systems due to the heavy influence such loading has on their designs. Current Department of Energy seismic analysis techniques for a nuclear safety-related piping system typically involve application of a single conservative seismic input applied to the entire system [1]. A significant portion of this conservatism comes from the need to address the overlapping uncertainties in the seismic input and in the building response that transmits that input motion to the piping system. The approach presented in this paper addresses these two sources of uncertainty through the application ofmore » a suite of 32 input motions whose collective performance addresses the total uncertainty while each individual motion represents a single variation of it. It represents an extension of the soil-structure interaction analysis methodology of SEI/ASCE 43-05 [2] from the structure to individual piping components. Because this approach is computationally intensive, automation and other measures have been developed to make such an analysis efficient. These measures are detailed in this paper.« less
  • Annular gas migration and poor cement bonding throughout much of the wellbore have been continual problems in the primary cementing of Hobbs Grayburg-San Andres Wells. This paper discusses the formulation of an expanding cement system and the implementation of good primary cementing techniques to improve cement bonding and to eliminate annular gas flow after cementing. The work is based on a review of previously unsuccessful attempts to control annular gas flow by conventional gas control methods typically used by the industry. Case histories, cement bond logs, previous primary cement slurries, and procedures used in the field are presented with possiblemore » explanations of why they failed to control the problem. The formulation of the primary cement system is outlined in detail including refinements made to the system during the 1984-85 drilling program.« less
  • Statistical treatment of the time history signals from a loose parts monitoring (LPM) system was used to predict the source location of an impact produced type signal on a PWR steam generator. The analysis showed that the signal was on the secondary side, in a region above the steam separators. Furthermore the signals were indicative of a stationary and not a roving loose part. Based on this analysis of a surveillance monitoring program was instituted during plant operation to record changes in the signals that could be due to a change in condition of the suspected loose part. Inspection ofmore » the steam generator three months after the initial signals showed that analysis to be correct, that the impact signals were due to loose bolts holding the steam deflector plate in front of the steam exit nozzle.« less
  • The Colorado State University Solar Energy Applications Laboratory is current testing several solar domestic hot water systems. The experimental systems are fully instrumented to yield all data appropriate for in-depth analysis of performance. One of these systems is an unpressurized drainback system with a load-side heat exchanger. An analysis of the performance of this heat exchanger is the focus of this paper. Analytical calculations for the effectiveness and convective heat transfer coefficients from correlations are compared against the experimental data. The convective correlations yield heat transfer coefficients that underpredict the measured by as little as 17% and as much asmore » 72%. TRNSYS simulations were performed using the average effectiveness; the results compare favorably with experimental results, indicating that a constant effectiveness is an adequate model for the system.« less
  • Utility planners require a range of data to effectively analyze customer energy usage patterns, and plan DSM programs. These data are available from plan DSM programs. These data are available from internal and external sources, most commonly through the design of sample surveys of customers. Once data are collected, effective data recovery often involves analyzing the data to correct certain problems and/or make the data usable for a specific application. This paper explicitly addresses the data recovery topics of editing and analysis of non-response bias. Other related data recovery topics not discussed include: screening of data sets, imputation procedures formore » missing data elements, model input parameter estimation, post-hoc matching of individual account level data to develop building or facility level estimates, statistical analysis techniques, and optimal follow-up strategies. 2 figures.« less
