Title: Overview of the dynamic-hohlraum x-ray source at Sandia National Laboratories.

Abstract

Progress in understanding the physics of Dynamic-Hohlraums is reviewed for a system capable of generating 10 TW of axial radiation for high temperature (>200 eV) radiation-flow experiments and ICF capsule implosions. 2D magneto-hydrodynamic simulation comparisons with data show the need to include wire initiation physics and subsequent discrete wire dynamics in the simulations if a predictive capability is to be achieved.

  • The following regulatory analysis and literature review of archaeological and historic resources on the Sandia National Laboratory/New Mexico (SNL/NM) occupied properties was prepared by the Chambers Group Inc. in January 1992. Based upon compliance surveys of Technical Area I through V undertaken in 1990 and 1991 the report concludes that, although consultation with the Department of Energy and State Historic Preservation Officer will still be required for particular projects, cultural resources should not affect the overall planning and development of future SNL/NM projects. As SNL/NM buildings approach 50 years in age additional analysis and consultations may be required. In ordermore » to protect sensitive resources, the location coordinates and maps provided in the original report are not included here.« less
  • The Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) Engineering Analysis Code Access System (SEACAS) is a collection of structural and thermal codes and utilities used by analysts at SNL. The system includes pre- and post-processing codes, analysis codes, database translation codes, support libraries, UNIX[trademark] shell scripts, and an installation system. SEACAS is used at SNL on a daily basis as a production, research, and development system for the engineering analysts and code developers. Over the past year, approximately 180 days of Cray Y-MP[trademark] CPU time have been used at SNL by SEACAS codes. The job mix includes jobs using only a few secondsmore » of CPU time, up to jobs using two and one-half days of CPU time. SEACAS is running on several different systems at SNL including Cray Unicos, Hewlett Packard HP-UX[trademark], Digital Equipment Ultrix[trademark], and Sun SunOS[trademark]. This document is a short description of the codes the SEACAS system.« less
  • Sandia National Laboratories, Livermore, is continuing to process the upgrading and enhancing its Computer Aided Definition System to incorporate new hardware capabilities and software functionality to meet our design definition mission. The original report, published in August 1988, detailed the current configuration and design concepts. Although many of the concepts are still valid, several new hardware capabilities are now available and significant software advances have been made since that report was published. This report describes the updated system configuration and revised concepts for the early 1990's.
  • This report provides an overview of Sandia National Laboratories' safety policies and practices supporting the operation of Sandia's nuclear reactor facilities. These policies and practices have evolved from Sandia's 30 years of experience and leadership in the design, construction, and operation of steady-state and pulse research reactors. The report illustrates how Sandia has implemented DOE orders and research reactor standards with the goal of reducing risks to the lowest reasonable levels for its employees, contractors, the public, and the environment. The impact of DOE orders and standards on virtually all aspects of reactor operations and administration is illustrated. Included inmore » the report are descriptions of safety documentation (Technical Specifications and Safety Analysis Reports); the facility safety review system for addressing radiological protection and other environmental, safety and health issues; experiment activities; quality assurance; training and certification; and emergency planning.« less
