Title: Pseudo-equilibrium geometry of HNO determined by an E-Band CP-FTmmW spectrometer

Abstract

An E-Band (60–90 GHz) chirped-pulse Fourier transform millimeter-wave spectrometer has been constructed for eventual kinetics and dynamics studies. The performance of the spectrometer is demonstrated with the molecule nitroxyl (HNO). Using the new spectrometer and by passing isotopically labelled methyl nitrite (CH 3ONO) through a pyrolysis nozzle, the spectra of minor isotopologues of HNO have been obtained. The observations on the isotopologues identified here, H 15NO, HN 18O, and D 15NO, have been combined with the earlier isotopic observations, HNO and DNO, to create a global r m (1) HNO geometry that approximates an equilibrium structure. Furthermore, the results are compared to high-level ab initio calculations.

  • The results of a single-crystal neutron diffraction study of the chromium-hydrogen-chromium bond in (Et/sub 4/N)/sup +/(Cr/sub 2/(CO)/sub 10/(..mu../sub 2/-H))/sup -/ was reported. The Cr-H-Cr bond in the (Cr/sub 2/(CO)/sub 10/(..mu../sub 2/-H))/sup -/ monoanion of the tetraethylammonium salt was found to be non-linear with the bridging hydrogen atom randomly disordered between two centrosymmetrically related sites each equidistant from the two chromium atoms and displaced ca. 0.3 A from the crystallographic center of symmetry.

  • We define the simplicial analogues of two concepts from differential topology: the concept of a point on the simplicial manifold and the concept of a tangent space on a simplicial manifold. We derive the simplicial analogues of parallel transport, the covariant derivative, connections, the Riemann curvature tensor, and the Einstein tensor. We construct the extrinsic curvature for a simplicial hypersurface using the simplicial covariant derivative. We discuss the importance of this simplicial extrinsic curvature to the 3+1 Regge-calculus program. It appears to us that the newly developed null-strut lattice is the most natural version of a 3+1 Regge lattice formore » the construction of extrinsic curvature. (A null-strut lattice is a 3+1 Regge spacetime lattice with TrK = const simplicial hypersurfaces, each connected to its two adjacent hypersurfaces entirely by simplicial light cones built of null struts.) Finally, we test the Regge-calculus version of the extrinsic curvature on a Bianchi type-IX simplicial hypersurface. The calculation agrees with the continuum expression to first order.« less
  • A pseudo-three-dimensional (P3DH) model has been developed to describe realistically the evolution of geometry of a 3D hydraulic fracture produced by fluid injection into a reservoir. The present model bypasses the task of a fully 3D crack geometry calculation, which is at present prohibitively complex in the context of a complete practical fracturing simulator. The P3DH model presented formulates the problem in terms of equations for lateral fluid flow and crack opening for the main body of the fracture, coupled with a very efficient scheme for describing vertical fracture growth at each cross section. The equations for lateral flow aremore » solved by finite differences, and the vertical propagation problem is solved by numerical implementation of a singular integral equation on a suitable set of Chebyshev points. The testing of P3DH components shows both an excellent agreement of the lateral propagation model with various analytical solutions and a strong sensitivity of vertical propagation to confining stress and stiffness contrast of adjacent strata and to fluid rheology. The sample simulations show that the model produces realistic fracture growth under a wide range of conditions, is extremely sensitive to the dominant containment parameters, and therefore can be used to study the effect of relevant design parameters on fracture shapes and pressures in stimulation treatments.« less
