  • Superconducting cavities for the CKM RF separated kaon beamline at Fermilab have modes that are closely spaced compared to the resonance bandwidths when warm, and this complicates the field flatness (warm) tuning process. Additionally, it is necessary to maintain the azimuthal orientation of the mode during the tuning deformations. the authors present two analytic techniques to warm-tune cavities with overlapping modes, a finite-element analysis of the tuning process, the design of a warm tuner which maintains mode polarization, and the results of tuning a cavity in which initial manufacturing variations caused the desired {pi} and nearby {pi}-1 modes to bemore » indistinguishable before field flatness tuning.« less

  • The genesis for this study was a need for an explanation of how to combine the peak accelerations, displacements, stresses, etc., which result from a response spectrum analysis of nuclear power plant structures and equipment. The explanation was intended to be comprehensive in the sense that it would be based on a general principle from which the absolute sum, square root of the sum of the squares (SRSS), and double-sum modal recombination rules could be extracted as special cases. The purpose of such a comprehensive explanation was to convince design engineers that these rules, in particular the recently proposed double-summore » rule, were logical in their formulation and therefore sensible in their application.

  • Nuclear plant equipment/components required to function or maintain structural integrity, so that the plant can safely shutdown upon the onset of an earthquake, are required to be seismically qualified. One of the provisions in IEEE 344 which is frequently used by the nuclear plants is to have their new or replacement seismic category 1 equipment/components seismically tested. In the past this testing was usually performed by third party testing laboratories for individual nuclear utilities. In 1992 a group of nuclear utilities met to develop a cost-effective method to seismically test equipment and components in a manner which met the needsmore » of all utility members involved. These meetings were facilitated through the Electric Power Research institute (EPRI). If a standardized method for performing seismic tests could be obtained inexpensively then such testing would be used extensively in support of commercial grade procurement of equipment and components by nuclear utilities in their effort of reducing Operations and Maintenance (O and M) costs. The consensus reached was that a cost-effective approach could be established and EPRI was tasked with taking a survey of the 18 initial utilities to summarize seismic test costs normally incurred, turnaround time for testing, and use of the seismic test option versus similarity analysis. After two years of SQURTS testing, the utilities` cost for seismically testing a component has decreased from a typical value of $10,000 based upon conventional method of contracting seismic testing, down to an average SQURTS cost of $1,500 per item. SQURTS testing has been contracted with, and accomplished by one seismic testing vendor.« less
