  • The Jet A surrogate, consisted from 72.7 wt % decane + 9.1 wt % hexane + 18.2 wt % benzene was selected. Detailed mechanism, consisted of 417 elementary reversible reactions and 71 components, for this Jet A surrogate combustion was elaborated. The capability of the 3-component Jet A surrogate to predict the ignition delay times for the Jet A fuel over wide temperature and pressure ranges and to predict the pressure, temperature, and velocity of detonation was demonstrated.

  • The fluorescence efficiencies used in calculating the optical emissions produced by energetic particles and penetrating radiation in air are derived for the most part from the measurements, of Davidson and O'neil, Mitchell and Hartman. These efficiencies were obtained from experiments conducted at various air pressures and in the absence of an applied electric field. In this paper we describe detailed 4.5 dimensional (two spatial dimensions and 2.5 phase space dimensions) kinetic calculations for the electron distribution function resulting from the injection of energetic electrons into air at various pressures. We choose beam parameters and dimensions that are directly relevant tomore » the original Davidson and O'Neil experiments. From the electron distribution function and measured excitation cross-sections we then compute the optical efficiencies for a large number of nitrogen and oxygen lines across the electromagnetic spectrum from 320.0 nm to 800.0 nm. A comparison with various measurements is presented. We also present results from simulations with an applied electric field. The computed fluorescence efficiencies can be used to determine the optical emissions associated with high-altitude discharges driven by runaway air breakdown and results are discussed in a separate poster. We have also recalculated optical emission rates that are applicable to discharges dominated by. conventional breakdown for comparison with Taranenko et al. These rates are also used in our self-consistent sprite simulations.« less
  • Optical gain of wurtzite GaN/AlGaN quantum wells has been studied from a first-principles calculation using the k {center_dot} p method. Most of the parameters in the k {center_dot} p method were determined by fitting the band structures by the first-principles calculation. Owing to the small spin-orbit splitting energies of the wurtzite GaN and AlN, the optical gain has been calculated using the 6 x 6 Hamiltonian for the valence band. It is found that the large hole effective masses and the small spin-orbit splitting cause the higher threshold current density of wurtzite GaN/AlGaN quantum well lasers.
  • Lattice QCD is an essential complement to the current and anticipated DOE-supported experimental program in hadronic physics. In this poster we address several key questions central to our understanding of the building blocks of nuclear matter, nucleons and pions. Firstly, we describe progress at computing the electromagnetic form factors of the nucleon, describing the distribution of charge and current, before considering the role played by the strange quarks. We then describe the study of transition form factors to the Delta resonance. Finally, we present recent work to determine the pion form factor, complementary to the current JLab experimental determination andmore » providing insight into the approach to asymptotic freedom.« less
