Title: Screamer version 4.1

Abstract

Screamer is a special purpose circuit code developed for the design of Pulsed Power systems. It models electrical circuits which have a restricted topology in order to provide a fast-running tool while still allowing configurations general enough for most Pulsed Power system designs

  • The FORECAST program was developed to facilitate the preparation of the value-impact portion of NRC regulatory analyses. This PC program integrates the major cost and benefit considerations that may result from a proposed regulatory change. FORECAST automates much of the calculations typically needed in a regulatory analysis and thus reduces the time and labor required to perform these analyses. More importantly, its integrated and consistent treatment of the different value-impact considerations should help assure comprehensiveness, uniformity, and accuracy in the preparation of NRC regulatory analyses. The Current FORECAST Version 4.1 has been upgraded from the previous version and now includesmore » an uncertainty package, an automatic cost escalation package, and other improvements. In addition, it now explicitly addresses public health impacts, occupational health impacts, onsite property damage, and government costs. Thus, FORECAST Version 4.1 can treat all attributes normally quantified in a regulatory analysis.« less
  • The PDERO User Guide has been developed by the Office of Oil and Gas (OO & G) in the Energy Information Administration (EIA). It can be used as an informational tool for a manager to become acquainted with the system or as a reference tool for the PEDRO user. As a result of enhancements made to the PEDRO system, this Guide supersedes the PEDRO User Guide (DOE/EIA-0528) published in November 1990.
  • The HEFF Code combines a simple boundary-element method of stress analysis with the closed form solutions for constant or exponentially decaying heat sources in an infinite elastic body to obtain an approximate method for analysis of underground excavations in a rock mass with heat generation. This manual describes the theoretical basis for the code, the code structure, model preparation, and step taken to assure that the code correctly performs its intended functions. The material contained within the report addresses the Software Quality Assurance Requirements for the Yucca Mountain Site Characterization Project. 13 refs., 26 figs., 14 tabs.
  • The ERT Visibility Model has been developed to estimate, principally for regulatory purposes, plume blight and visibility impairment resulting from point sources. The model combines the concentration fields calculated from single- or multiple-source dispersion models with calculations of the radiative transfer at four wavelengths in the visual range. It accounts for the scattering and/or absorption of the reactive pollutants NO2, NO3, SO4, and carbonaceous and non-carbonaceous TSP. It can consider any geometrically specified line of sight (e.g., to a specific vista from a point in a Class I area). The model gives the following information about plume blight visibility degradation:more » (1) visual range reduction; (2) plume contrast; (3) object contrast degradation; (4) plume discoloration, expressed as a blue/red intensity ratio and (5) object and sky discoloration, expressed as a Delta E value. The ERT Visibility Model (Version 4.1) has been developed by the Air Quality Studies Division of ENSR Corporation. This model is listed in Appendix B of the U.S. EPA`s `Guideline on Air Quality Models (Revised) (EPA-450-2/78- 027R) (PB95-246401) as a refined model that may be considered on a case-by-case basis for individual regulatory applications. The model is available as a refined modeling technique for Level-3 plume visibility impairment analyses for PSD Class I areas as discussed in the U.S. EPA`s `Workbook for Plume Visual Impact Screening and Analysis` (EPA-450/4-88-015) (PB89-151286). The ERT Visibility Model has undergone substantial testing and evaluation.« less
  • VNI is a general-purpose Monte-Carlo event-generator, which includes the simulation of lepton-lepton, lepton-hadron, lepton-nucleus, hadron-hadron, hadron-nucleus, and nucleus-nucleus collisions. It uses the real-time evolution of parton cascades in conjunction with a self-consistent hadronization scheme, as well as the development of hadron cascades after hadronization. The causal evolution from a specific initial state (determined by the colliding beam particles) is followed by the time-development of the phase-space densities of partons, pre-hadronic parton clusters, and final-state hadrons, in position-space, momentum-space and color-space. The parton-evolution is described in terms of a space-time generalization of the familiar momentum-space description of multiple (semi)hard interactions inmore » QCD, involving 2 {r_arrow} 2 parton collisions, 2 {r_arrow} 1 parton fusion processes, and 1 {r_arrow} 2 radiation processes. The formation of color-singlet pre-hadronic clusters and their decays into hadrons, on the other hand, is treated by using a spatial criterion motivated by confinement and a non-perturbative model for hadronization. Finally, the cascading of produced prehadronic clusters and of hadrons includes a multitude of 2 {r_arrow} n processes, and is modeled in parallel to the parton cascade description. This paper gives a brief review of the physics underlying VNI, as well as a detailed description of the program itself. The latter program description emphasizes easy-to-use pragmatism and explains how to use the program (including simple examples), annotates input and control parameters, and discusses output data provided by it.« less
