Title: Final Project Report - Revised Version

Abstract

An over-arching goal of this research is to calibrate geophysical techniques for hydrate exploration, evaluation, and production monitoring. Extensive field data of hydrate-bearing sediments exist, but quantitative estimates of the amount and distribution of hydrates are difficult to determine. Thus, the primary project objectives were to relate seismic and acoustic velocities and attenuations to hydrate saturation and texture. The project aimed to collect seismic properties along with other measurements (e.g., complex resistivity, micro-focus x-ray computed tomography, etc.). The multiphysics dataset would enable researchers to understand not only the interaction between mineral surfaces and gas hydrates, but also how the hydrate formation method affects the hydrate-sediment system in terms of elastic properties.

  • The electromagnetic transients program (EMTP) is a computer program used to simulate and analyze electromagnetic, electromechanical, and control system transients on multiphase electric power systems. This application guide includes examples, procedures, and data to assist engineers experienced in transient analysis using the EMTP code, version 2.0. Aided by user comments on the application guide for the EMTP code, version 1.0, the project team first described the problems encountered in preparing data and applying the results of EMTP studies. They then developed a components guide that describes the structure and limitations of mathematical models available in the EMTP code; that providesmore » guidance to data preparation, including typical parameters for a wide range of equipment; and that contains suggestions about which model to use in various circumstances. The developers then showed how the EMTP code is used to explain situations under which surges can occur and described analysis techniques used to develop sample input files. The application guide provides documentation for modeling transients related to overhead lines, gas-insulated substations, transformers, circuit breakers, surge arresters, initial conditions in a given scenario, and current and voltage sources. The guide includes a study on surges, focusing on those generated during line switching. The work also includes information on transient overvoltages and lightning surges.« less
  • The report presents the results of the first phase of the Santa Clara Valley Integrated Environmental Management Project (IEMP), an innovative project designed to address the environmental and public health problems posed by toxic chemicals in California's Santa Clara Valley. Integrated environmental management is intended to be a practical tool for controlling pollution that threatens public health. EPA, in partnership with state and local leaders, can use estimates of the public health impacts of a wide range of environmental problems to compare those problems and set priorities for risk management. Setting priorities provides a way of working through an environmentalmore » agenda by targeting the worst problems first in order to get the most risk reduction (and thus public health benefit) for any given level of resources.« less
  • This report quantifies the potential for an ice slurry district cooling system based on an innovative direct freeze ice production technology as part of the US Department of Energy project ''District Heating and Cooling Technology Research: District Cooling/Ice Slurries''. The results will be used by DOE to guide RandD strategies to develop a technically viable and economically sensible ice slurry district cooling system. The project is divided into three tasks: Design and construction of a test facility, this facility includes an ice generation system, a slurry distribution system, and a thermal energy storage system; The performance of the slurry distributionmore » system and the thermal energy storage system was evaluated; and An economic evaluation of this technology employing the test results achieved was conducted. 19 refs., 17 figs., 6 tabs.« less
