Title: Percept User Manual.

Abstract

This document is the main user guide for the Sierra/Percept capabilities including the mesh_adapt and mesh_transfer tools. Basic capabilities for uniform mesh refinement (UMR) and mesh transfers are discussed. Examples are used to provide illustration. Future versions of this manual will include more advanced features such as geometry and mesh smoothing. Additionally, all the options for the mesh_adapt code will be described in detail. Capabilities for local adaptivity in the context of offline adaptivity will also be included. This page intentionally left blank.

  • This document is primarily a description of the user interface for USER2.1; it is not a description of the statistical theory and calculations behind USER. This project is funded by the Bonneville Power Administration, U.S. Department of Energy, under Contract No. 004126, Project No. 198910700 as part of the BPA's program to protect, mitigate, and enhance fish and wildlife affected by the development and operation of hydroelectric facilities on the Columbia River and its tributaries. The analysis of fish and wildlife data requires investigators to have the ability to develop statistical models tailored to their study requirements. Hence, a flexiblemore » platform to develop statistical likelihood models to estimate demographic parameters is necessary. To this end, Program USER (User Specified Estimation Routine) was developed to provide a convenient platform for investigators to develop statistical models and analyze tagging and count data. The program is capable of developing models and analyzing any count data that can be described by multinomial or product multinomial distributions. Such data include release-recapture studies using PIT-tags, radio-tags, balloon-tags, and acoustic-tags to estimate survival, movement, and demographic data on the age and/or sex structure of wild populations. The user of the program can specify the parameters and model structure at will to tailor the analyses to the specific requirements of the field sampling program, the data, and populations under investigation. All of this is available without the need for the user to know advanced programming languages or numerical analysis techniques, and without involving cumbersome software developed for extraneous purposes. Program USER represents a powerful statistical modeling routine that can be readily used by investigators with a wide range of interests and quantitative skills.« less
  • The manual is a concise user's guide of Combustion Engineering's Low NOx Concentric Firing System. It is based on extensive pilot-scale and small and large utility-scale demonstrations, in particular a program completed in May 1984, at Utah Power and Light Company's 400-MWe Hunter Unit 2 station. It addresses six points for the user to evaluate to determine the applicability, feasibility, and cost of installing the concentric firing system to a particular steam generating unit: (1) rationale, (2) applicability, (3) pre-design evaluation, (4) design, (5) performance optimization and evaluation, and (6) economic analysis. The manual follows the final project report (amore » case study example of retrofitting this technology) for the Hunter Unit 2 utility demonstration program.« less
  • The report describes the Synfuel/Petrofuel Conditioning and Delivery Facility designed by Acurex Corporation for the U.S. EPA's Air and Energy Engineering Research Laboratory. The facility was designed to deliver synthetic fuels to five research facilities for comparative emissions testing with conventional petroleum-based fuels. Capabilities of the facility include: heating and preblending of fuels delivered in 55-gal. drums; delivery of heated high-viscosity fuels; delivery, mixing, and injection of a secondary light fuel along with a viscous synthetic fuel; and continuous fuel flow in a semi-automatic, unattended operational mode. Procedures are defined for the operation of all facility systems.
  • The GenBank project at Los Alamos collects nucleotide sequence submissions from the biological research community. This work includes the processing of data received in several different forms as well as maintenance and quality control on those submissions. This manual explains the procedures involved in that work for both Los Alamos GenBank staff and off-site users. The GenBank database stores annotated DNA sequences. This manual contains the procedures for depositing these sequences into the database. There are two ways to do this. Either the sequence arrives at GenBank as a submission and is entered by the database staff or the sequencemore » is directly entered by an off-site user. The Annotator's WorkBench (AWB), which is a database browsing and editing tool, is used in both cases. This manual is for GenBank staff and off-site users of the GenBank database at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. It contains an introduction and tutorials for AWB, as well as procedures for entering sequences either as submissions or as data directly deposited by an off-site user. Instructions for all of these are found in Chapters 2 through 4. The introduction to AWB is in Chapter 2. Instructions for submission handling are in Chapter 3. Instructions for entering sequence information are in Chapter 4. Off-site users should look at section 4.3 for instructions on entering a sequence. In addition, the manual describes various in-house curatorial tasks that are part of maintaining the database, as well as the procedures and conventions for annotating sequences. The procedures for annotation and review are in Chapters 5 and 6. The description of in-house curator's tasks is in Chapter 7. The appendices contain: Annotation conventions, two reference chapters on AWB and other utility programs, a complete list of all the forms, fields, and commands in AWB and descriptions of other (non-AWB) software utilities used by database staff.« less
  • Elegant stands for ``Electron Generation and Tracking,`` a somewhat out-of-date description of a fully 6D accelerator program that now does much more than generate particle distributions and track them elegant, written entirely in the C programming language, uses a variant of the MAD input format to describe accelerators, which may be either transport lines, circular machines, or a combination thereof. Program execution is driven by commands in a namelist format. This document describes the features available in elegant, listing the commands and their arguments. The differences between elegant and MAD formats for describing accelerators are listed. A series of examplesmore » of elegant input and output are given. Finally, appendices are included describing the post-processing programs.« less
