Title: Sensitivity Analysis of Kinetic Rate-Law Parameters Used to Simulate Long-Term Weathering of ILAW Glass. Erratum

Abstract

This report refers to or contains K g values for glasses LAWA44, LAWB45 and LAWC22 affected by calculations errors as identified by Papathanassiu et al. (2011). The corrected K g values are reported in an erratum included in the revised version of the original report. The revised report can be referenced as follows: Pierce E. M. et al. (2004) Waste Form Release Data Package for the 2005 Integrated Disposal Facility Performance Assessment. PNNL-14805 Rev. 0 Erratum. Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, WA, USA.

  • This report presents kinetics models for the chemically facilitated gasification of the ubiguitous boron oxide coating that inhibits particulate boron ignition and the second stage high temperature boron surface burning that occurs once the oxide coating has been removed. These models include a homogeneous gas phase oxidation mechanism consisting of 19 chemical species and 58 forward and reverse elementary reactions, multicomponent gas phase diffusion and heterogeneous reactions between gas phase oxidation products and the boron oxide/boron surface. Kinetic mechanisms are formulated to describe the heterogeneous surface reactions for both B2O3(1) and B(s) surfaces in terms of simple adsorption and desorptionmore » reaction steps. Thermochemical parameters for these reaction steps are estimated from the current heats of formation and gas phase bond energies for the major reactants. Reaction rate parameters are estimated from available experimental data or using elementary transition state theory arguments.« less
  • This final report describes work performed on long-term power system dynamics. The objectives of the research project were: to extend the work already completed for EPRI by testing the Long-Term Dynamic Simulation Program, LOTDYS, in the analysis of several power system disturbances; to document LOTDYS for utility use; to examine the sensitivity of long-term dynamic analyses to data and model changes; to identify and evaluate alternate measures for improving the capability of power systems to withstand cascading failures; to provide guidelines for data for long-term dynamics analyses; and to assist the University of Tennessee in developing a pressurized water reactormore » power plant model. The principal efforts of the project were in conduct of simulation studies of four power system incidents, chosen to span the range of major system emergency conditions. The topical reports of these studies are included. Generally, it was concluded that long-term studies may be usefully made, and that data pose the greatest difficulty in these analyses. Specific conclusions and recommendations regarding data needs, modeling, and conduct of studies are presented.« less
  • A peer review process was conducted by a team of national and international experts on a proposed strategy for predicting performance of low-activity waste glass recommended for disposal at the Hanford site. This report presents the consensus findings and recommendations from the international experts.
  • This report discusses the results of the examination of three rate laws for glass dissolution. These three are: SLDF, LDF/LDF and ZO/LDF. All three models can fit the results of static powder leach tests reasonably well. The existence of a fundamental relationship between the thermodynamics and the kinetics of glass dissolution/leaching has been demonstrated for the three rate models.
  • An evaluation of the Long-Term Energy Analysis Program (LEAP), a computer model of the energy portion of the US economy that was used for the 1995-2020 projections in its 1978 Annual Report to Congress, is presented. An overview of the 1978 version, LEAP Model 22C, is followed by an analysis of the important results needed by its users. The model is then evaluated on the basis of: (1) the adequacy of its documentation; (2) the local experience in operating the model; (3) the adequacy of the numerical techniques used; (4) the soundness of the economic and technical foundations of themore » model equations; and (5) the degree to which the computer program has been verified. To show which parameters strongly influence the results and to approach the question of whether the model can project important results with sufficient accuracy to support qualitative conclusions, the numerical sensitivities of some important results to model input parameters are described. The input data are categorized and discussed, and uncertainties are given for some parameters as examples. From this background and from the relation of LEAP to other available approaches for long-term energy modeling, an overall evaluation is given of the model's suitability for use by the EIA.« less
