  • Abstract not provided.
  • Rocket experiments in ionospheric particle and field research flow in seven programs during the last decade are summarized. Experimental techniques were developed and are discussed including the double-probe field technique. The auroral zone, polar cap, and equatorial spread F were studied.
  • The Department of Energy, in cooperation with the IEEE Neural Networks Council, Naval Research Laboratory, Electric Power Research Institute, and US Bureau of Mines, sponsored the Adaptive Control Systems Technology Symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from October 24 to 25, 1994. The theme of the Symposium was High-Tech Controls for Energy and Environment. This extraordinary gathering was designed to bring together individuals from the control systems and computational intelligence communities to focus attention on potential benefits to be derived from the application of adaptive controls to energy and environmental systems. Leading authorities from industry, academic, and government institutions presented tutorial overviewsmore » on each of three computational intelligence paradigms -- viz., neural networks, fuzzy logic, genetic algorithms -- identified useful hybrid forms, and introduced intelligent and adaptive control systems concepts and applications. There were also papers presented that focussed on specific applications of intelligent control and adaptive control in energy and environmental control systems. Individual papers have been cataloged separately.« less
  • As part of an effort to shape Federal policy for environmentally sound, sustainable economic development, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy sponsored a workshop in Boise, Idaho on February 1--2, 1995. The Boise Idaho workshop focused on the sustainable use of natural resources, a topic of considerable interest in Idaho. The workshop gave representatives from industry, academia, research, the public, and local and state government an opportunity to provide input to lawmakers and policymakers for establishing a National Environmental Technology Strategy to be issued by Earth Day, 1995.
  • This paper describes research to evaluate the tribological properties of alumina pins sliding against thin sputtered gold films deposited on alumina disk substrates. A 250 {angstrom} thick chromium interlayer was first deposited onto the alumina test disks to enhance adhesion and high temperature wetting of the gold films. The Au/Cr films were tribotested in pure sliding in a pin-on-disk tribometer under a 4.9 N load at 1 m/s. The test atmosphere was room air at temperatures of 25, 500, and 800 C and the test duration varied from 60 to 540 min. The use of the Au/Cr films reduced frictionmore » by about a factor of two compared to the unlubricated alumina sliding couple. The coating prevented wear of the alumina substrate disks and reduced pin wear by one to two orders of magnitude. In addition, wear lives in excess of 200 000 sliding passes (9 hr) were observed during sliding at 800 C. Results suggest that these films show promise for the practical lubrication of many high temperature sliding components.« less
