  • This report describes the various models encompassed by the Performance Prediction Toolkit.
  • This presentation discusses quantum computing methods performed at LANL as well as event simulation models.
  • The first stage of work on low lying hadron masses calculated (in the quenched approximation) on lattices of size 12/sup 3/ x 32 at beta = 6.31 is briefly reported. This value of beta requires lattices at least as large as the ones being worked on in order to avoid locking of the degrees of freedom. This beta puts us far closer to the correct weak coupling regime than any other calculation has been. Indeed, it can be argued that essentially all other calculations with beta = 6.0 or less are little more than strong coupling calculations. Results are excitingmore » and better than originally had been expected. The predicted mass spectrum is in marked closer agreement to the physically observed spectrum than previous results. For example, the proton mass is within 100 MeV of its actual value and the rho-proton mass ratio is in essentially exact agreement with its experimental value. (WHK)« less

It briefly describes results on the following topics: 1) A Transport and Fate Model for Helium and Helium Management; 2) Atomistic Studies of Point Defect Energetics, Dynamics and Interactions; 3) Multiscale Modeling of Fracture consisting of: 3a) A Micromechanical Model of the Master Curve (MC) Universal Fracture Toughness-Temperature Curve Relation, KJc(T - To), 3b) An Embrittlement DTo Prediction Model for the Irradiationmore » Hardening Dominated Regime, 3c) Non-hardening Irradiation Assisted Thermal and Helium Embrittlement of 8Cr Tempered Martensitic Steels: Compilation and Analysis of Existing Data, 3d) A Model for the KJc(T) of a High Strength NFA MA957, 3e) Cracked Body Size and Geometry Effects of Measured and Effective Fracture Toughness-Model Based MC and To Evaluations of F82H and Eurofer 97, 3-f) Size and Geometry Effects on the Effective Toughness of Cracked Fusion Structures; 4) Modeling the Multiscale Mechanics of Flow Localization-Ductility Loss in Irradiation Damaged BCC Alloys; and 5) A Universal Relation Between Indentation Hardness and True Stress-Strain Constitutive Behavior. Further details can be found in the cited references or presentations that generally can be accessed on the internet, or provided upon request to the authors. Finally, it is noted that this effort was integrated with our base program in fusion materials, also funded by the DOE OFES.« less
