  • Consequence of the accidental release of radioactivity from a nuclear power plant is assessed in terms of exposure or dose to the members of the public. Assessment of risk is routed through this dose computation. Dose computation basically depends on the basic dose assessment model and exposure pathways. One of the exposure pathways is the ingestion of contaminated food. The aim of the present paper is to compute the uncertainty associated with the risk to the members of the public due to the ingestion of contaminated food. The governing parameters of the ingestion dose assessment model being imprecise, we havemore » approached evidence theory to compute the bound of the risk. The uncertainty is addressed by the belief and plausibility fuzzy measures.« less
  • A series of numerical test cases reflecting broad and realistic ranges of geological formation properties was developed to systematically evaluate and compare the impacts of those properties on geomechanical responses to CO2 injection. A coupled hydro-geomechanical subsurface transport simulator, STOMP (Subsurface Transport over Multiple Phases), was adopted to simulate the CO2 migration process and geomechanical behaviors of the surrounding geological formations. A quasi-Monte Carlo sampling method was applied to efficiently sample a high-dimensional parameter space consisting of injection rate and 14 subsurface formation properties, including porosity, permeability, entry pressure, irreducible gas and aqueous saturation, Young’s modulus, and Poisson’s ratio formore » both reservoir and caprock. Generalized cross-validation and analysis of variance methods were used to quantitatively measure the significance of the 15 input parameters. Reservoir porosity, permeability, and injection rate were found to be among the most significant factors affecting the geomechanical responses to the CO2 injection. We used a quadrature generalized linear model to build a reduced-order model that can estimate the geomechanical response instantly instead of running computationally expensive numerical simulations.« less

We used a quadrature generalized linear model to build a reduced-order model that can estimate the geomechanical response instantly instead of running computationally expensive numerical simulations. The injection pressure and ground surface displacement are often monitored for injection well safety, and are believed can partially reflect the risk of fault reactivation and seismicity. Based on the reduced order model and response surface, the input parameters can be screened for control the risk of induced seismicity. The uncertainty of the subsurface structure properties cause the numerical simulation based on a single or a few samples does not accurately estimate the geomechanical response in the actual injection site. Probability of risk can be used to evaluate and predict the risk of injection when there are great uncertainty in the subsurface properties and operation conditions.« less
  • In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in low symmetry and multiphase materials such as intermetallics, ceramics, polymers and minerals. To overcome the difficulties of texture analysis for these materials arising from the overlapping Bragg-reflections, the peak profile analysis and the pole figure inversion adapted to overlapping pole figures are mostly used. The concept of maximum entropy has received wide application in the information theory and the image reconstruction. Quite recently, it was introduced to texture analysis for cubic and hexagonal materials. While the positive condition is automatically satisfied, the assumption of maximum entropy may give an access,more » with less number of pole figures, to the optimization of the pole figure inversion within the variation width of solutions. In this paper, the maximum entropy method (MEM) is applied to the determination of fiber texture vector from overlapping pole figures. An algorithm is developed for tetragonal materials and demonstrated through a simulation example.« less
  • Determining reliable single crystal material parameters for complex polycrystalline materials is a significant challenge for the materials community. In this work, a novel methodology for determining those parameters is outlined and successfully applied to the titanium alloy, Ti-6Al-4V. Utilizing the results from a lattice strain pole figure experiment conducted at the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source, an iterative approach is used to optimize the single crystal elastic moduli by comparing experimental and simulated lattice strain pole figures at discrete load steps during a uniaxial tensile test. Due to the large number of unique measurements taken during the experiments, comparisons weremore » made by using the discrete spherical harmonic modes of both the experimental and simulated lattice strain pole figures, allowing the complete pole figures to be used to determine the single crystal elastic moduli.
