Title: TASLIMAGE System #2 Technical Equivalence Evaluation

Abstract

In early 2017, a second TASLIMAGE system (TASL 2) was procured from Track Analysis Systems, Ltd. The new device is intended to complement the first system (TASL 1) and to provide redundancy to the original system which was acquired in 2009. The new system functions primarily the same as the earlier system, though with different X-Y stage hardware and a USB link from the camera to the host computer, both of which contribute to a reduction in CR-39 foil imaging time. The camera and image analysis software are identical between the two systems. Neutron dose calculations are performed externally and independent of the imaging system used to collect track data, relying only on the measured recoil proton track density per cm 2 for a set of known-dose CR-39 foils processed in each etch.

  • The Project Independence Evaluation System (PIES) is a complex computer model developed by the FEA for its use in energy policy analyses. PIES represents the energy economy of the nation on an average day in selected target years--1980, 1985 or 1990. By varying the assumptions and data, the model is used to simulate the effect of differing energy policies or trends. This report describes the entire model in a general fashion and the specific implementation of different sectors of the supply side of the model. Basically, on the supply side, the model contains fossil fuel supply activities, fuel conversion activitiesmore » and transportation activities.« less
  • Design, development, and field testing of a high-capacity, high- efficiency air filter for application on light aircraft engines were studied. Radioactive tracer techniques were employed and a mobile gamma radiation scintillation spectrometer circuit was utilized for rapid wear analyses in flight tests. The top piston ring of one cylinder of a H-23C helicopter engine was irradiated by neutron bombardment, and its wear measured when the engine was protected with various filters and also with no filter in the induction system. A reduction in piston ring wear by a factor of three was noted when the engine was protected with amore » highcapacity, high-efficiency air fiIter to one that had no filters. (auth)« less
  • This document reports the results of a study performed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) for the US Army Material Development and Readiness Command (DARCOM) under an Interagency Agreement, Department of Energy (DOE) No. 40-1307-82. The purpose of the study was to compare the short- and long-term requirements of the Major Item System Mapping (MISM) computer software system with the capabilities of the System 2000 data base management system. MISM is intended to provide a system oriented approach for budgeting and managing major items of equipment. Both the hardware resource requirements and software features of System 2000 were evaluated.
  • The Electric Vehicle (EV) Site Operator Program, is currently composed of thirteen Site Operators. In addition to operating electric vehicles for demonstration of the technology, the Site Operators also perform operational field testing. Data collected by the programs are input to the Site Operator Database at each site and transmitted, periodically, to the database at the INEL. As the program has expanded, some Site Operators have begun operating vehicles at sites remote from their offices. With the advent of these expanded test programs, it is necessary to consider in-vehicle, automated data acquisition systems. Three of these in-vehicle, data acquisition systemsmore » have been designed and constructed: The Mobile Data Acquisition System (MDAS) was designed and constructed by Sigma TecSystems, Inc. located in Tampa, Florida. The Versatile Data Acquisition System (VDAS) was designed and constructed at the INEL under the guidance of the Electric and Hybrid Vehicle (EHV) Program. The AUTOLOGGER Vehicle User Survey System produced by Instrumental Solutions of Ottawa, ON. Because the USF MDAS is a new system proposed for use by the Site Operator Program, the purpose of this report is to provide a preliminary evaluation of the MDAS by comparing the system to the proven VDAS. Data used to perform the comparison was acquired by a review of the MDAS literature provided by the USF, and by a demonstration of the MDAS and its performance, provided by the USF to INEL personnel. A brief discussion of the AUTOLOGGER is also included, for comparison, because it is being used by Southern California Edison (SCE), one of the Site Operator Program participants who recommends the unit as a good system.« less
  • A Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program demonstrated the Shirco Infrared System (pilot plant) for thermally processing PCB waste at Rose Township, Michigan. The process was evaluated by the U.S. EPA and is reported in Volume I of the report. Results reported in Volume I indicated that PCB was removed from the feed material with a DRE greater than 99.99%. The destructive ratio (percent of PCB in the ash compared to feed) was greater than 83% resulting in a less than 1 ppm concentration in the ash. Particulate emissions, products of incomplete combustion (PICs) and acid-gas emissions were below anymore » standards. Metals in the ash leached by the TCLP and EP Tox. were below suggested standards.« less
