  • It has now been shown that the British Coal Liquid Solvent Extraction process is technically viable and on the way to commercial exploitation by producing tonnage quantities of coal-derived liquid fuels. The British Coal Liquefaction pilot plant is now in its ninth run period, a maximum of 2,000 hours operating time being available for each run. During this time there have been some equipment-related problems, but these have been overcome as the runs have progressed. The main problem areas have been compressors, emulating pumps and magnetic drive pumps. Later runs have produced quality data on the yield patterns for themore » process. Liquid yields of above 60% based on the daf coal feed have been achieved.« less
  • The papers presented in this volume focus on the thermomechanical aspects of manufacturing and materials processing with emphasis on solving problems of practical importance. The major topics discussed include casting and crystal growth, heat transfer in metal joining and forming, heat transfer in metal cutting, laser processing, electron beam processing, and polymer processing. Papers are presented on thermocapillary convection in materials processing, fluid dynamics of crystal growth, mathematical modeling of transport processes in laser materials processing, and thermal analysis of the electron beam welding process.
  • Political and legal aspects of various possible county regulations that could apply to geothermal development are reviewed. (PCS)
