Title: The collaborative program of research in engineering sciences

Abstract

In 1985, the Energy Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) began a collaborative program of energy-related engineering research. This program was extended for another three years starting in January 1991. The program continues to pursue three broad goals: to perform quality research on energy-related technologies involved in industrial processes and productivity; to demonstrate the potential of collaborative programs between universities and the national laboratories; and to encourage the transfer of the technology developed to the industrial sector. This annual report describes progress at MIT under the MIT/INEL program during the past year.

  • Research programs in the following areas are briefly described: High-Temperature Gas-Particle Reactions; Mathematical Modelling of Plasma Systems; Metal Transfer in Gas Metal-Arc Welding; Multivariable Control of Gas Metal-Arc Welding; Synthesis of Heat and Work Integration Systems for Chemical Process Plants; Parity Simulation of Dynamic Processes; Fundamentals of Elastic-Plastic Fracture: Three-Dimensional and Mechanistic Modelling; and Comminution of Energy Materials. Publications from each program are listed.
  • This proposal describes a collaborative program of energy-related engineering research. The proposal builds upon, and extends, research begun in 1985. Research areas in the initial program were: thermal plasmas; automated welding; engineering analyses and design; and solid mechanics. Work in these areas will continue. New projects are proposed in the area of sensors and diagnostics. Each organization, MIT and INEL, will conduct research in each of the areas. The research projects are coordinated between institutions and are designed to enhance the productivity of the program by exploiting the separate strengths of each organization. The MIT segment of the program involvesmore » 18 faculty members, 8 professional staff members, and 31 graduate research assistants. The program is planned for a 5-year duration.« less
