  • The conductance technique is used to study radiation induced interface traps on Sandia Laboratories' radiation hardened technologies. The conductance technique is used to study density of interface traps, the time constant for interface trap response, and the donor/acceptor nature of the interface traps. Donor/acceptor nature of interfaced traps is determined by comparing the theoretical and experimental values of the variance in the conductance peak. Results indicate the presence of both donor and acceptor interface traps in both parts of the bandgap post-irradiation.
  • From 11th international symposium on free radicals; Berchtesgaden, F.R. Germany (4 Sep 1973). The results of a preliminary study of the interactions of positronium with nitrobenzene and ontho, meta, and para derivatives of nitrotoluene and dinitrobenzene in benzene solutions are reported. Distinct differences in the rate constants for the reaction of positronium with the organic molecules were observed for the various systems, and an attempt was made to correlate these changes to certain molecular parameters and to the effects of steric interactions in these molecules.

  • A study of the nonlinear and random behavior of flow-induced forces on offshore structure is presented. This study seeks to improve the understanding of the basic hydrodynamics of reversing flow around a cylinder. The experiments use a computer controlled water tunnel to generate a planar reversing flow field about a force instrumented cylinder. Laser Doppler Velocity measurements and flow visualization techniques are used in conjunction with numerical simulations to gain new fundamental insights into the relationship between the far flow field and the near wake flow dynamics. The numerical studies are based on a finite-element method for the unsteady incompressiblemore » Navier-Stokes equations in two dimensions. The momentum equations combined with a pressure correction equation are solved employing a non-staggered grid. The solution is advanced in time with an explicit/implicit marching scheme. Applications of the developed algorithm include unsteady calculations of uniform and oscillating flows around a cylinder. Comparisons with experimental data evaluate accuracy and robustness of the method.« less
  • The development of a shock-accelerated diffuse Helium cylindrical inhomogeneity is investigated using a new numerical method. The new algorithm is a higher-order Godunov implementation of the so-called multi-fluid equations. This system correctly models multiple component mixtures by accounting for differential compressibility effects. This base integrator is embedded in an implementation of adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) that allows efficient increase in resolution where the computational effort is concentrated where high accuracy, or increased resolution, are required. Qualitative and quantitative comparison with previous experimental data is excellent. The simulations show that counter-sign vortex blobs are deposited in the jet core by baroclinicmore » generation of the curved shock wave as it traverses the jet. This vorticity deposition occurs over timescales that scale with the shock passage time ({approximately} 10{mu}sec). Three phases of development are identified and characterized. The first is the weak deformation (WD) phase, where there is weak distortion of the Helium jet due to weak vorticity induced velocity effects. The second phase is the strong deformation (SD) phase where there is large distortion for the jet and the vortex blobs due to large induced velocity effects. The last is a relaxation/reorganization (RR) phase where the vorticity field reorganizes into point-like vortex pair.« less
