Title: SAMPLING AND ANALYSIS PROTOCOLS

Abstract

Radiological sampling and analyses are performed to collect data for a variety of specific reasons covering a wide range of projects. These activities include: Effluent monitoring; Environmental surveillance; Emergency response; Routine ambient monitoring; Background assessments; Nuclear license termination; Remediation; Deactivation and decommissioning (D&D); and Waste management. In this chapter, effluent monitoring and environmental surveillance programs at nuclear operating facilities and radiological sampling and analysis plans for remediation and D&D activities will be discussed.

  • A number of dynamic cache consistency protocols have been developed for multiprocessors having a shared bus interconnect between processors and shared memory. The relative performance of these protocols has been studied extensively using simulation and detailed analytical models based on Markov chain techniques. Both of these approaches are relatively detailed models, which capture cache and bus interference rather precisely, but which are highly expensive to evaluate. In this paper, the authors investigate the use of a more abstract and significantly more efficient analytical model for evaluating the relative performance of cache consistency protocols. The model includes bus interference, cache interference,more » and main memory interference, but represents the interactions between the caches by steady-state mean collision rates which are computed by iterative solution of the model equations. The authors show that the speedup estimates obtained from the mean-value model are highly accurate. The results agree with the speedup estimates of the detailed analytical models to within 3%, over all modifications studied and over a wide range of parameter values. This result is surprising, given that the distinctions among the protocols are quite subtle. The validation experiments include sets of reasonable values of the workload parameters, as well as sets of unrealistic values for which one might expect the mean-value equations to break down. The conclusion they can draw is that this modeling technique shows promise for evaluating architectural tradeoffs at a much more detailed level than was previously thought possible. They also discuss the relationship between results of the analytical models and the results of independent evaluations of the protocols using simulation.« less
  • This volume is a practical guide for logging geologists to the procedures and activities used when bottomhole or sidewall coring is performed at the wellsite. The first chapter discusses the concepts of porosity, permeability and saturation, how these properties are determined in core analysis, and their significance in controlling reservoir performance. Chapter Two deals with the various techniques used in coring. The next section explains the routine role of the logging geologist in core retrieval, sampling, and qualitative evaluation. The final chapter presents operating procedures for performing wellsite quantitative core analysis.
  • This first volume of a three volume work describes all aspects of the evaluation of water for pollution control, from the design of measurement systems, through techniques for sampling, monitoring and analysis, to data compilation and interpretation. Particular attention is given to statistical control, advanced instrumental analysis, interpretation of biological indicators of water quality, and the design of an average laboratory. Detailed reference methods are provided, giving internationally acceptable procedures which enable comparisons to be made between laboratories in different countries.
  • The symposium from which this book was developed took place in Philadelphia in 1984. It contains 36 papers and the transcript of a panel discussion, all of which have gone through more than the usual editorial attention, and are, appropriately, set in type. The subject headings are the following: Protocols; Reverse Osmosis to Isolate Organic Pollutants from Water; Synthetic Polymers for Concentrating Organic Chemicals from Water; Noval Methods to Isolate and Fractionate Organics Chemicals in Water Samples; Comparison of Isolation Methods; Case Histories: Biological Testing; and Toxicological Testing - Analysis Interface. The overall picture drawn of what we drink ismore » unsettling but fascinating. The index is uncommonly thorough.« less
