  • During the 2011 experimental campaign, one of the three ion cyclotron resonance heating (ICRH) antennas in the Tore Supra tokamak was equipped with a new type of Faraday screen (FS). The new design aimed at minimizing the integrated parallel electric field over long field lines as well as increasing the heat exhaust capability of the actively cooled screen. It proved to be inefficient for attenuating the radio-frequency (RF)-sheaths on the screen itself on the contrary to the heat exhaust concept that allowed operation despite higher heat fluxes on the antenna. In parallel, a new approach has been proposed to modelmore » self-consistently RF sheaths: the SSWICH (Self-consistent Sheaths and Waves for IC Heating) code. Simulations results from SSWICH coupled with the TOPICA antenna code were able to reproduce the difference between the two FS designs and part of the spatial pattern of heat loads and Langmuir probe floating potential. The poloidal pattern is a reliable result that mainly depends on the electrical design of the antenna while the radial pattern is on the contrary highly sensitive to loosely constrained parameters such as perpendicular conductivity that generates a DC current circulation from the private region inside the antenna limiters to the free scrape off layer outside these limiters. Moreover, the cantilevered bars seem to be the element in the screen design that enhanced the plasma potential.« less
  • A magnetic pressure loading technique was successfully applied to estimate the dynamic spall strength of oil shale in the 1 to 3 x 10/sup 3/ sec/sup -1/ strain rate regime. (JSR)
  • The purpose of the present study is to investigate experimentally the effect of strain rate on the mechanical characteristics of unidirectional epoxy-base composite materials. Specifically, fiberglass and organic plastic in the form of tubular specimens with a 0 degree winding angle.
  • Temperature and major species concentration profiles are obtained in H{sub 2}/N{sub 2} versus air-opposed flow diffusion flames of various fuel jet dilutions and strain rates. Three fuel jet compositions are examined: mole fractions of 21% H{sub 2} and 79% N{sub 2}, an equimolar mixture of H{sub 2} and N{sub 2}, and undiluted H{sub 2}. A Raman imaging system, capable of providing time-averaged linewise measurements of high precision (2%) and high spatial resolution (160 {micro}m), is used to obtain the scalar measurements. Laser Doppler velocimetry is used to measure the oxidizer-side axial velocity gradient, K, ranging up to 2,800 s{sup {minus}1}.more » Mixture fraction and scalar dissipation rate profiles are derived from the major species concentration and temperature profiles and clearly show effects of differential diffusion, with deviations among the three elemental species mixture fraction profiles for all three fuel jet conditions examined. Flame thickness is experimentally shown to vary linearly with K{sup {minus}1/2}. Differences in boundary conditions allow only a qualitative comparison between measured peak temperatures and others` numerical results. However, the comparison generally provides good agreement, especially for the highly diluted fuel jet case ({+-}40 K), though for undiluted fuel jet flames at low values of K the experimental data are consistently higher (90 to 280 K) than numerical predictions. Also, for the low K undiluted fuel jet flames, the scalar dissipation rate versus mixture fraction profiles are nonmonotonic near the stoichiometric mixture fraction and have values there that are over an order of magnitude less than their more diluted counterparts, due to the influence of fuel jet dilution upon the relative positions of the stoichiometric location and the stagnation plane.« less
